I like being on team BLU and attacking rather than defending, specifically in Payload. I’ve clocked far too many hours as Heavy, second most as Pyro and third most as Scout. My favorite character in the Valve shorts is probably AllOfThem but Pyro is the most interesting character overall to me <3
Man plays are just incredible aren’t they? There are a few that I still read every year like clockwork and marvel at all the layers and elements of storytelling that can come through with only dialogue.
I do really love Waiting for Godot. I think what keeps me from loving it as much as I love Ros&Guil is how much we studied it in college, actually.
Some of you may not know but I went to college to study theater. I took every design class, almost every acting class, and a series of history classes focused entirely on Theatre regarding not only plays and playwrights but also theory and all that jazz.
Oh goodness I also just remembered I took a class called “Theatre and Quantum Physics.” Not even about to go into what that class was like.
I say all this not to be like I KNOW ALL THE THINGS ABOUT THEATRE OKAY but to say…Waiting for Godot is an amazing play by an amazing man and because of that, it is used a lot in teaching, especially when discussing the way that art can overlap with science/philosophy/physics etc etc.
If you’ve never read it, you absolutely should. You should also read Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead because it’s another play that explores something you might not catch immediately.
Actually now I just want to make a Top 10 Plays video because omg plays are magical.
Every YouTuber should be thinking about this. For the ones making a LOT it could be as simple as “oh I’ve got extra dollars. I should give myself the equivalent of a salary and then save the rest just in case.”
I’m not assuming that this is going to last forever. I’m sure, like many YouTubers, there will come a time where I see a steep decline and have to redirect my efforts.
Before I got into YouTube and moved to LA, I was fully mentally prepared to be a starving artist serving coffee and working at random theaters. I still have a lot of love for that world and for the work I was doing so I could go back to that and be happy :)
In a perfect world, I’ll be able to save enough that I can start a coffee shop and comic book store. That’s been something I’ve wanted to do down the road for a long time and, providing I’m able to do well enough now, I’ll have the money to make it a reality one day.
Those are the plans. One for Broke!Dodger and one for MoneyToBurn!Dodger :D
just in case.
Thank you!! Don’t worry I appreciate all the reblogs.
Waiting for Season 3 is a lot easier now that it’s so close and we have an actual release date. In the meantime I just put on the old episodes when I’m cleaning or cooking and then usually wind up looking at everyone’s Reichenbach theories and not actually cleaning very much. Oops.
I can only hope it’s not going to be as ridiculous as the explanation was at the end of the Testament of Sherlock Holmes game. I gave a massive fisheye to that.
Anywho, thanks for hanging out! Tell your boyfriend hi :D
