Project Beardlog / Prosjekt Skjegglogg.

So in the past I've always been telling people that my facial hair growth is pretty fast. And I decided that once and for all that I wanted to document this.
I hate having to do a clean shave, but I decided that if I did it a week before Christmas I was certain it would have grown back out by then.

So here it is, a visual log over my beard growth over the course of 7 days.
Not counting the day I do a complete clean shave. It can't exactly have grown much in those minutes from the shave to the pictures.

So that is one week from complete shave until a full beard again.

Also, all the pictures were taken around the same time each day (18:00ish)

"Do yourself a favor, don't fall for me."

I pride myself in my ability to make others feel good about themselves.
Sometimes, unfortunately, it seems some miss interpret my well meaning friendly gestures as something more, and start getting feelings for me. Unfounded feelings.
This is why I have a phrase I quite often say when ever I get to know someone new, and that is "Do yourself a favor, don't fall for me." This is something I've been saying, and meaning for many years now.

Now some might read this and think "man this guy is a douchebag for believing everyone falls for him." Well, I can quite literally off the top of my head mention 14 seperate cases over the past 6 years where this exact thing has happened, so my saying this is quite well founded.

Regardless, when ever this happens, most of the time it ends up with someone getting hurt because I quite honestly don't feel the same way as they apparently feel for me.
This again makes me feel bad because I have to say let these people know that I don't feel the same way, and that in turn hurts their feelings. And I hate having to hurt someones feelings.

I can't say I don't enjoy it. I mean I enjoy the feeling of having someone else feel good about themselves because of something I say/do. This is for instance why I love giving gifts that are special and bring up memories that me and that person have in common. Something personal.

Is this selfish behaviour, I am starting to wonder?
It's definitely not selfless behaviour. I do gain something from it, right, so does that mean it's selfish of me to give compliments and generally be nice to someone?

It's not like I don't warn them.
It's often one of the first things I say to pretty much anyone.
Then again, perhaps me saying "do yourself a favor and don't fall for me" is the exact reason why they do? Some kind of bizzare reverse psychology. I don't know. I really have no idea.

Sometimes, though, I do get to know these people more intimately and I sometimes develope feelings for them as well. But is this because of the returned well meaning friendly gestures or are these feelings truly founded in something more?

I wish I knew where the line is supposed to be drawn.
Not out of the desire to avoid stepping over it accidentaly.
But because I in certain cases wish I could do it, just to see their reactions when they knew I had stepped over the line. To me that would be a more clearly defined indication of whether or not the feelings are well founded or if they are fleeting.

One of the biggest issues is the fact that I'm actually not that nice of a person once you get to know me, and the fact is that most of the time they fall for the "Idea" of Alex rather than the actual person Alex.
I try to tell them this but, that rarely really sticks. Bah.

Just one of those days..

I came home from work around 04:00 last night. I put on an episode of Stargate Universe (S01E03) and watched that while winding down from a long, tiresome day at work. One of the last segments of that episode contained a song which I looked up and found, I listened to it a few times as I was falling asleep. 06:00ish.

I woke up around 12:00 today, and the first thing I did after the obligatory social media sites check was to listen to that song again, which kind of set the mood for the rest of the day.

After having spent a few hours just browsing the internet listening to that song I expanded and found a few more songs of the same artist and I ported them over to my phone. Then, music in my ears, I went out for a long walk in the windy, autumn weather just being a hairs width from breaking into tears as I was walking, looking up at the clouded sky, at the crows soaring above, finding profoundness in almost anything I saw.

I walked to my mother's gallery where I sat for 30 minutes talking to her and a friend of hers. I just want to say that I love my mother so much, even though she'll never read this. Cowardice.
After spending some time there, she was closing up the gallery and I headed back home. I spent some time taking the long route back before I went by a shop and bought some stuff for dinner.

The time is now around 16:00

At home I walk into the kitchen, music still in my ears, turn on the lights and the light bulb blows out.
Typical. So I light up a whole lot of candles and place around the kitchen.
I continue to cook up a nice dinner, then I move the candles over to my room and set up a couple episodes of SG:U. I eat, I watch them. This is the first moment of the day I wasn't listening to that music.

The episodes play.
I get a few texts roll in, I talk to a few people and someone commented that I seemed quiet today.
I answered by saying "it's just one of those days". That show is truly beautiful by the way.

The episodes end.
I turn the music back on.
Check Facebook again. Answer a few YouTube comments. respond to texts and Facebook chat.

The time is now about 19:00.
I lay down in bed, music playing, surrounded by candles and I just stay there, listening, thinking, watching as the candles flicker out one by one.

I post on Facebook using my phone that it's "one of those days where I just really need a hug".
Shortly after I get lots of comments, Facebook chatter, text messages and steam PM's letting me know that they're there for me, giving me hugs.
And for the first time today, I smiled.. and cried.

Just one of those days..

I sometimes wish I was the kind of person that took advantage of situations.

I sometimes wish I was the kind of person that took advantage of situations.
A lot of situations would be simpler and more straightforward if I was.
I would possibly have made quicker moves with a potential certain someone if I was, but I just hope people are able to see me for the fact that I don't do that kind of stuff, and hopefully they won't give up on me because I'm slow, and they assume I'm not interested because I haven't made any moves.

Let me explain. Lately I've been getting it more and more proven to me that I am in fact an "eligible bachelor", something I have a hard time believing myself.
But the facts speak, I say without going too much further into specifics.

So recently I ended up at a party where there were a few girls, and a great deal of them all seemed to be rather interested in me, something I'm absolutely not used to for one, believe it or not.

So anyways, I ended up at this party, and got attention from pretty much all of them. This might feel like bragging, but I'm making a point here.
I know for a fact that I could have taken any one of those girls with me home that night, but I didn't.

I don't like to toot my own horn or lay it on thick about how bad my life has been, because all things considering, I don't feel it has. Despite the fact that I have actually been through a lot of crap growing up. More than even my own family knows about.
But I must be allowed to make a strong point out of what kind of effect that life has had on me.
It has made me a humble man. an example is the fact that I don't like to take home girls that have been drinking because I feel it's taking advantage and possibly having them do things they will regret later. So I just don't do it, never did, never will. Even if you're all thinking "oh but Alex, you have full control over your actions even if you've been drinking". It doesn't change the fact that I feel it's bad. Oh and trust me, I work at a bar, and I know that you have a greatly reduced control during inebriation.

I find it very funny how now that I'm actually getting some attention from the female form everybody starts assuming I'm the kind of guy that brings home girls every weekend. If only they knew that I only recently started drinking and going out to parties, and that I had approximately zero self-esteem up until a short few years ago.

I'm just saying that even with this new-found self esteem I'm still that shy guy I used to be back in the day, and all my crap during the years has only gone to make me a more humble person. I just wish people would see that before they automatically brand me an asshole for getting attention from other women.
Even if I could fork anyone, I would still not do it because I just felt like getting my DW. Especially not if I have a good eye for someone else. Even if I knew that would probably never happen either, I would just not do anything to jeopardize those chances.

Things that are important to my existence.

So it's been a little while since I updated my blog here, but just so you know I've been keeping busy doing the youtube thing, if you're not already a follower there, it's worth taking a look.

Also, to sate some of the naturally unending lust for my attention and to know all there is to know about my life, here's a little comp I did just to highlight point out a few things in life I consider very important to my existence.

My life as a gamer.

So I finally after quite literally many months got my internet really fixed so I can now play online again, which means I am now in fact torn betwene playing my singleplayer games which I have Let's Play video series going of and playing online with friends which, quite honestly, is a hell of a lot more fun.

Although, I am very close to completing Crysis 2, so I might actually just blast through that real quick just so I can say I've successfully completed an entire game walkthrough :)

As for my Oblivion Let's Play, I also have to complete that as soon as possible. November and Skyrim are aproaching increasingly fast it seems and I did promise to finish the game, or atleast the primary storyline of it before then. So on the 11.11.11. I will indeed be done with it.

The thing is, I've been playing quite a bit, but I've had so many technical issues with it and I've had to replay certain content over and over because I couldn't get the recordings to come out the way I wanted them to. I guess I just need a short break.

I am also very excited for the The Secret World going into Beta testing, but I was slightly bummed that I didn't get a beta invite yet. I am hoping it will roll in soon though. I can just imagine that's a game I will absolutely love and spend countless hours playing.

In addition to that, I am also really looking forward to the soon"ish" release of both Modern warfare 3 and Battlefield 3 which should be out in November and October respectively.

To top of all this, we have the Minecraft 1.8 patch coming in a few weeks, if not next week and that'll also take up a lot of my time untill the games just keep rolling in one by one.

I am really at a loss as to how I'm going to have time to play all these really huge title games coming out so close to eachother.

Other than that my days are progressing as per usual.
Oh and I was dumb enough to reactivate my WoW account. I really hate myself.

Leave a comment and if you haven't already, visit and subscribe to my Youtube channel, it really helps me out :)

Lots of love <3

New beard, midnight rendezvous, old texts and revalations.

So, I tried a new beard today; I removed my sideburns completely and thinned down the actual chin line beard and shaved away the 'stash.
Here's a look at how it turned out.

In hindsight, I see why I never shave my sideburns, because I really do miss them. I face feels a lot less "framed" and structured now without them to sort of tie it all together. Although, I might try this same thing, ie. the thin lines and no mustash but with the sideburns again and post pictures of that.

Moving on.
So lately I've been meeting up with this bikini-neighbour of mine for some midnight cigarettes.

Oh, but first I have to tell you a tiny revalation I had earlier today that has to do with this part of the story:
  I was hanging out at a friends workplace today and his sister was there.
This sister is quite a bit younger than I, and she during conversation told me that she reads my blog.

  Now this kind of surprised me, but quite honestly, it shouldn't. I mean, once you've put something out on the internet, it's pretty much out there forever and most likely, everyone gets around to seeing it at some point in time.

Especially when you're the obnoxious kind that posts their blogs and other internet activities on Facebook like I do. (I'm saying I'm of the obnoxious kind, but to hell with you for judging me!)

Aaaanyways, back to the midnight bikini-girl.
So we were talking a bit, and she said "guess who just got a new job?" now normaly you would naturally assume that it was the person asking, for the obvious reasons.

But the first thing I thought of was the updates on her facebook of people telling her "grats" etc without actually being specific to what they were congratulating her about. So I quiet casually said "yeah I heard about that". and she didn't really react.

Which is where my tiny revelation came in:
Especially in the case of Facebook, you can actually quite safely assume that most people know what's going on in your life if you've, or someone you know have posted something on your wall about what's going on.

Even more so if it's someone you know are interested in you in any way.
Now I don't know what that says about who in this case but it's certainly something to think about when you post something.
Even if you thought no one read your stuff, there's always someone who does.

On a similar train of thought, I've been getting quite a few surprising people tell me that they do indeed watch my youtube videoes and they do in fact read my blog, which is really nice, and not to mention awesome to hear :D

Also, last updated I mentioned I'd go hunting for some of my old short stories, and I found a couple. Here you go, let me know what you think about them please? :) <3

..oh, and please ignore the obvious typo's and wrong name. I changed my name, and I wrote both of these quite literally 6 years ago.

Lots of love <3

Writing and the wait for winter.

So I've spent some time with some friends lately that I havent really seen too often lately. The opportunity just never arose for it.

But as mentioned, I have been seeing some of them lately, and during one of said meetings we got to talking about the weather. Silly, I know, but we actually were more talking about the seasons and the weather within each season.

A viewpoint that was shared with me by my friend Marie, with whom this weather conversation was had, was: Spring and fall are the most boring of seasons.

Not the entirety of it, but the time in betwene where all the leaves have fallen from the tree, and you're just standing around waiting for the snow to fall.
The spring part where all the snow has gone and you're just waiting for the leaves to grow back out.
 This in my opinion is a very accurate description of what the most boring part of having 4 seasons are.

Anyways, we got onto talking about what we love about each season as a result of this topic, and I mentioned that Winter is actually my favorite time of the year. I love summer, don't get me wrong, but the one season that I personally find so the most beautiful and inspiring is winter.

I went on to explain:
  I love how, if you are out on the more unusual of times during the day you might encounter an entire street just perfectly covered in untouched, gently layered snow. Walking down a street like this is really always really so beautiful. For some reason, turning around and looking back after having walked a bit, seeing that the only footsteps are those you just made is just something really profound in my mind.
Seeing as one of the more populated streets in town only have one single set of footprints, and it's all from you.

I don't know..
I sometimes theorize that the idea of having a giant, blank, white "clean slate" is something I personally just always loved getting handed a completely blank piece of paper that I could draw on, create anything I wanted, make it my own.

I guess that idea of getting a completely fresh start is why I love that aspect of winter.

Another thing, I also went on to say was:
 I love being out, after dark, and standing in the streets and look up against the streetlights and see how the snow gently falls against the backdrop of complete darkness, and the only ones you see are in the light you're looking up against. That is also one of my most profound moments in life.

After I had explained these scenarios, and why I loved winter so much, my friend told me that I should absolutely start writing. She went on to say that I perfectly painted the scene, and that while I was explaining, she totally got what I was saying and the emotion I had connected to these events.

At one point in my life, had a book going,  I explained, but unforseen circumstanced (HD crash) caused me to lose 200 pages of a book I had started working on. And because of this I had just given up on the writing part. 

I do have a quite a few short-stories somewhere out on the internet, one day I should probably try to find them, because it would really be nice to read them again. I remember they really ment alot to me.

You know what, maybe I should start writing again.
I've been told by a lot of different people that they enjoy reading my stuff..
Let me know, would you want to see some of my old short-stories and perhaps some new stuff as I come up with it?

Bikinis in rain with the girl next door and wedding internettings

So, I spent Friday pretty much just wasting time, editing a few videoes from my Oblivion Let's Play.
And then I went off to work the door again at 23:00 friday night.

The turnout of people was actually quite surprising. I mean, we were expecting at tops 10 people, but we actually got about 40-50 come by. It was a pretty relaxing night. We suspect quite a bit more will show up next weekend though.

__The girl next door's bikini__
Oh, also something that happened on Friday.
I got aproached by a girl while I was standing in the door who blamed me for looking at her in a bikini.
 I couldn't really recall the specific individual, because face it, most guys, if they walk by someone sunbathing in a bikini, they will look, no man can deny that.
So not being abel to place the girl in any memory appropriate memory slots I just said "I've never done such a thing".
Which, face it, most men also would do. She then went on to explain that she was the girl that lived next door to me. And on many an occation I have indeed glanced over while passing by.

She spent the next 20 minutes randomly blaming me for things, which I actually didn't take as actual harshness. It seemed more like she enjoyed talking to me. Either way, it was fun finally "meeting" and putting a name to the eyecandy.

After work I got in at around 4, then I stayed up untill around 06:00 just watching some tv and relaxing.

__The wedding__
Then come Saturday I got woken up by a phonecall from Karoline, which reminded me that I had agreed to serve food at this wedding-thing, to some people I really had no idea who was.

I did so just because I quite simply didn't have anything better to do that day, and just felt like spending some time out of the house.
That's what happens when you don't have a job, kids, you start looking for things to do.

Anyways, I got up, threw on my suit-pants and black shirt and headed out to this wedding thingy. It was a nice time, and we got some drinks and leftover food for the effort.

I got back home, and I had about two hours left untill I had to head off for work, so I got out of the suit, which incidently enough is also my work clothes at the doorman job, and just enjoyed not wearing it for an hour or so. I also got some food and cought up on internetting for a bit.
Yes, internetting is a word!.. From now on. In my mind, Internetting involves checking your mail, catching up on all your sites and facebook etc.

So I headed off to work. Nothing of import or excitement happened there either untill after work, where me and some co-workers sat and just talked for a few hours. I eventually got home at around 05:00 and went straight to bed.

__The Rain__
Sunday is, well, a pretty usual sunday. Rendering a few movies in the background of some tvshow I'm watching and getting some stuff ready for a few more video uploads during the night. I prefer to do it during night, because I have a shitty connection and I can't really do anything on the internet while I upload.

Oh! one more thing. In a random youtube comment om a pretty relaxing piece of music, in this case it was mt. eden's beautiful lies (check it out of you enjoy relaxed dubstep) someone posted this link and said it's very nice to have on while listening to relaxing music. It's basically an itnernet site that plays the sound of Rain indefinitely. You absolutely should check it out if you're like me, and really enjoy the sound of the rain.

As the site's tagline says: "Rain makes everything better."

Anyways, It's late sunday, I have a frozen pizza in the oven, I'm going to watch a movie and eat some food, then get to sleep. Tomorrow is another week. Unfortunantly I still don't have a second job, so that is what my day will comprise of: Looking for a job.

Lots of love <3

Hectic six weeks

So I've pretty much just come out of a really hectic six weeks with tons of stuff going on, most of which you already know about, namely tons of parties, sister's wedding, roadtrip and catching up on a lot of video editing and generally just racing about.

But now, I think it's time I slow down and have some time off, and actually just relax with work, for once. I think I'll be spending the coming while just taking on work and such. And you know I've been partying hard when I say I'll spend time "relaxing with work" :P

Anyways, other than that, I had a wonderfull time meeting up with a bit of my English relatives, my half-brother and my father and their respective companions.

Oh and here's Day 2 of the Air Festival, which we ended up being part of our roadtrip.
It's a pretty long vid. It appears I was spending more time filming and a bit less dancing on day 2.
Might have been because I was so tired from the first day, where I really let loose :P

Anyways, I'm also uploading a Crysis 2 gameplay vid tonight, so stay tuned if that's something you're interested in. You can find it here sometime in the next 3-4 hours :D

Oh and also, I look dashing in a suit. I'll try to get someone to send me one of the literally thousands of photos that were taken at the wedding of me in a suit :D

3 second rule

Hahaha. I just passed 3 kids, maybe 5-6 years. And this one kid dropped a piece of candy on the ground and exclaimed "oh nooo :(", then this little girl of the group started explaining to him the rules of the 3 second rule. He then hurried and picked it up and was extatic about this newfound view on life.

Also, I did finish rendering the Day 2 of our roadtrip. It's just a bit big, so it will take a while to upload. I'll start UL'ing it while I'm away tonight.
Also, if you didn't catch the Day 1, it's right here.

Also, speaking of "away tonight". I've been busy the past 3 days with family. Because you see, tonight is my sister's wedding party! :D
So that'll be very exciting, I get to meet up with lots and lots of far off family that I very rarely get to see :D

But right now I need to hit the showers and get myself into the suit.

Lots of love <3

Epic Roadtrip!

This is a tiny taste of what's to come on my blog/vlog later today or tomorrow, I have about 2 hours of recording I need to go through and then edit together.

Short version: we went out on a random roadtrip and ended up at Air Festival which turned out freaking epic!

Logception: A vlog within a blog

So me and some friends decided it would be fun to shave my magnificent mane while we were drunk, also we made a decision that since the festival we were going to was cancled because of the Norway tradegy, we would go on a roadtrip to.. whereever instead!
Basically we're going to drive into Sweden and let fate take us wherever :)
Anyways, that's the summary, watch the vid :)

Also, I filmed some while we were on the commemorative march in honor of those affected by the 22/07 attacks on Norway, so here's that if you're interested in that kind of thing.
There's also a speach and a live performed song at the end of this vid if you're interested.

Color the world (and me)

So me and some friends are heading out to go paintballing this evening. We're about 14 people I believe, and we'll be doing CTF and TDM, maybe a FFA round to end things off.

(Capture the Flag - Team Death Match - Free For All)

The twist, this time around, is that I will be attending in all white clothing for the occation! :D
Intentionally so because I hardly ever use said white clothing (Once; Sensation White). So it's not really a loss, also it will be very fun to see how it all turns out :D

I'll be bringing my camera to capture some footage of the event, and a before/after of the gang, and my clothes :D

Additionally, we went over the border yesterday to get some libations for an upcoming festival I will be attending (Storås)  And I had my camera with me and I cought some footage of the drive over the mountains.

Lots of love <3

New tunez

So I had a realization a few hours back; I've had Spotify Premium for the longest time (ehm.. 2 months) and I've not really exploited it to it's full potential, right?
I've been having music on my 'droid and ofcourse have a few offline lists.
But I really should listen to it solely to justify the money spent on it, right?
Normally I just listen to Youtube, because, well, quite honestly, That's where you find the most interresting music and newest music. If a new song is out, unless it's a very known artist it's likely to end up on youtube long before it's out on Spotify. Also, Youtube is really the place for all the up and coming artists and the lesser known music types to make it big, right?

Anyways, I had that slight realization that I could better find more pop-y (? don't hate me) music on Spotify with the "What's new" tab, and I've already found two songs that I actually could move to. And again, don't hate me, but one of them was actually the newest tune from Britney Spears :P

Anwyays, listening to pop-y music and warming up my bodymoves means I'm heading out for another night of awesomeness and inebriation! :D

Lots of love <3
-Alex :D

PS: I'll be doing some more Oblivion LP's tomorrow, so keep tuned! :D

Principially not doing it.

So I just spent the evening having a wednsday pint with some friends, and their friends. Which I ofcourse, indirectly now can call my friends.

And during said beers I got to talk to a few of them about the act of adding people on facebook, and how some people focus on picking up details about the other person only to later check them up on facebook.

Now, as I naturally already have checked up these "new friends" of mine on facebook, I am principially not adding them just because we talked about just that.

Also, I'm a master stalker. I pay attention to these types of details so quickly, and I very easily pick up on whether or not someone is in a relationship the same way. If that's just me being super-creepy or if it's just me being like.. a guy, I don't know.

Either way. I'm waiting for them to add me this time. Just because of principle! :D

Lots of love <3

Broken neck.

So, last night I went out having a really awesome time celebrating a friend's birthday.
Alcohole was consumed, and in not-so-moderate quanteties.

The first thing I noticed when I woke up this morning was that my neck was hurting like a bitch, and I started getting vague memories from headbaning pretty hard to some dirty dubstep. So there was that mystery solved.

The other thing I noticed was that I had a table full of kebabs that I apparently had gone and bought after the bars closed.

So there I was, sitting on my bed and having a pile of kebabs and a recipt that tells it's own tale of how I apparently paid quite a lot of money for quite a few different types of kebabs. (6, to be specific)

In addition to that, as if that wasn't enough, I had a whole bunch of confusing texts that I had sent out in, apparently, an attempt at finding an afterparty.. I think. Also, those texts I had gotten in return were equally apparent written by indeviduals whom also were quite enibriated.
Also I had quite a few unanswered calls when I checked my phone this morning.

And to top that off, I was in bed fully clothed. But mind you, in a set of clothes I wasn't wearing when I went out that evening. Vaguely, I remember coming home, eating half a kebab, then getting undressed for bed. Then I kind of remember getting a text about an afterparty or somesuch, and I got dressed again, specifically in new clothes out of the wardrobe! xD

This was about the time when I headed back out, still pretty darn wasted, and bought that food.

And lastly, I brought my flip cam out to said party, and the story the camera tells is.. well. I was completely smashed.

All in all, a pretty awesome evening though! :D

Lots of love <3

As I'm typing this I'm uploading two new videoes, one Minecraft and one Crysis2, and I just finished two shots and just finishing off the last of my drink as I prepear to head out to meet some friends.

Anyways, check back at my YT channel in a few hours and the vids should be up promptly! If not, Check it the day after (Typing moment is Saturday 9th of July. 00:04)

Hope all of you have a wonderfull weekend and enjoy it as much as I plan to enjoy mine! :D

onsdag 6. juli 2011


So some friends of mine had the idea of going out to a local island and go camping. And so, idea became action and basically, I'll be going camping with a group of friends for an indefinite ammount of time. (Read, most likely 1 night) It all really depends on what condition we're in the morning after. Because priority one on our packing lists are Alcohole. And lots of it :D

Anyways, I also just finished up a 1 hour session of Crysis 2 that I'll be uploading sometime in the next few days, depending on when we get back.

In adition to that I also have a 1 hour long video of Oblivion gameplay I'll be uploading at the same time :D

Well I best get back to packing, so to everyone; have a wonderfull day and remember to enjoy every day. Especially today, it's not just any other day, it's your life :D

So, in a slight fit of angst towards my future, being as I have no job, and the outlooks are pretty dim for the time being, I went and googled "What do I do with my life". And this "rate my life" quiz game up and I thought, what the hell, I might as well take it, right? Seeing as I've noplace to go today either way.

Another funny part was that when I got to "what do I do.." a bunch of suggestion on the google search engine came up. Among them was this top one I laughed pretty hard at :D

Have a good day to all of you, hope you all have a wonderfull monday :D

Oh, also, if you've not kept up. I've posted a bunch of new Let's Plays of both Oblivion and Minecraft, found here.

Something new. Sort of.

So I just started uploading 3 episodes of my new Alex TYP Minecraft, they should be up on my Youtube channel in a few hours.

I'm dead beat tired. I've been up for the past 20ish hours and I think I'm going to get a few hours of sleep before I'm headed out to hang with some friends over a few cold ones later tonight.

And for those who might be worried, no, I am not giving up on the Oblivion Let's Play. I've recorded another two hours of footage for that as well, I just need to edit and upload it. So, maybe sometime during this weekend, if I'm not too drunk/hung over ;)

Artist Approval.

Alright, so I just finished editing and am in the process of uploading 3 new episodes.
I had some tech issues with the editing and I had to wait for reply from an artist that I'm using some music by. I asked him and he was kind enough to let me use one of his tunes in my vid.
Seemed like a cool dude :)

Anyways, the three new episodes are as follows:
Lex 013 - Let's play Oblivion - Teabagging in Platemail (S03P01)
Lex 014 - Let's play Oblivion - Just a Breeze. Not. (S03P02)
Lex 015 - Let's play Oblivion - Eating demonic hearts heals me (S03P03)

I hope you keep an eye out on my YT channel :D

Going big.

So when I got on yesterday morning, I was greeted by a little message from YouTube that told me that "Congratulations! Your account is now enabled for uploads of longer than 15 minutes. Click the Upload button below to select a video."
And that was pretty cool. Apparently it's something they give people that follow the code of conduct on youtube, I also suspect it has something to do with the fact that I've uploaded a bunch of videoes in a pretty short time, and I'm really cool with that :D

So, I'll be pumping out slightly longer videoes, I'm thinking around 20-30 minutes.
The best part, though, is the fact that I don't have that absolute restraint. So if I had a video that was 15:06 seconds long, I had to find somewhere in the video to cut it. Now I can just upload that :D

I also just ordered myself a pocket camera, a Flip MinoHD that I'll probably start bringing anywhere I go. I'm thinking I want to start vlogging, and it would be especially cool to bring when I'm out on the town :D

I am as I'm typing this, rendering the final part of my second session (S02P06)
So those interested in watching that, it should be out sometime this afternoon (monday)

So yeah, Ciao! :D <3

Oh and btw, keep letting me know if you watch my videoes, it really gives me that boost to keep making them. I've heard a few people telling me they love it, and can't wait for the next episode.
Also, subscribe if you enjoy watching them, that really helps me alot :D <3

Play, Edit, Upload.

As I got home from work at 4 in the morning I had an urge to play, so I got on and captured a good 2 hours of gaming and footage. 
So I'm rendering Part 3 of my 2nd Oblivion session (S02P03) and I'll leave that, plus the two current uploading episodes running while I sleep, so I'll upload the third just as I wake up and then go on to finish editing the rest of the footage.

It was a pretty chill day at work, a fair share of people, and I learned how to work the coin-exchange machine at the bank today. So yey for learning something new.

Also I ran into my friend Thomas who was.. well. pretty damn drunk :D
But I feel he deserves to spend his days off doing what he wants to, and it was really nice to catch up to him :)

Anyways, stay tuned for my new Session on YouTube.
I'm pumping them out as fast as my computer renders and my internet can upload :D

Technical issues.

So like I mentioned, I had about 2 hours of recording that I totally had to delete because of some bogus with my settup when recording it. So I started the let's play from scratch. Rendering the first part as we speak and it should be up on Youtube sometime in the next 2-3 hours.

Also I'm going to work in not long.
Just hoping the render finishes so I can start the upload before I head off to work.
If you didn't know already, I work as a doorman at a local club.
Therefor the "working late on a friday night".

Oh, and I'd like to reitterate the middle finger to the people at the Foo Fighters concert right now.

Have a good evening, and stay tuned for the Let's Play :D

Ciao!<3 :D

Rats and fish going down.

So I just finished editing the 2'nd part of my 1.5h session of Oblivion earlier tonight.
Had to get some work done reinstalling the software, both the game itself and the video editing software.

 I figgured I'd do a complete fleshed out playthrough once and for all for my own, and the audience's enjoyment. (Fleshed out = sidequests aplenty).

Secondly, it's Friiiidaaaay :D
Normally that'd mean getting wasted. But I did that last night. And I've got work tonight, which I'm actually looking forward to :) So I guess friday will be spent catching up on some much needed sleep, editing and uploading my videoes, untill I head off to work tonight.

Also, I'd like to put a big fat middle finger up to my friends who are all going to Oslo tonight for the Foo Fighters concert. Really wish I could go, but circumstances didn't allow for it. Plus, I was there in April for Sensation White, so I chose that over Foo.
Still though, I'd really love to go.

Maybe next time, Dave. Maybe next time. <'3

Anyways, check out my YT channel and have a gander at my playthrough, it's uploading, so it'll be up an hour or so after this is posted :)

Untill next time, Ciao! :D<3

Buisness as usual.

So, seeing as I don't have a weekday job these days, I woke up at around 18:00 yesterday. I knew some friends were keen on hitting the pubs later that evening, so I logged on facebook and checked the status on that while I dishes up some food.

I got on facebook and asked around for when people wanted to meet up, the majority said they wanted to get together a bit earlier to kick it off privately, because some of them didn't have that much money, but had the cabbinet full of alcohole. Naturally I joined that and started drinking around 20:30ish at a friends'.

At around 23:00 ish we hit the pub at and had a pretty good time. We got further drunk and had a couple shots. At closing (01:00) we went to another friends' and stayed there drinking and talking 'till around 05:00, at which point said friends wanted to hit the bed and we, at this point 3 people, went to the original friends place to hang out untill now. 10:00ish. And on my way home I went by the stores to get some ingredients, and now I'm cooking up some more food. Although I suspect it'll be bedtime for me quickly after having consumed said food and watched a movie or some such. That is, tried to watch a movie :)

Buisness as usual for a wednsday with my gang :p

Untill next time, Ciao!

Here we go!

So I decided to start up a blog. Jump in on the hype that oh so many people have been getting on these days.

Firstly, let me explain the name;
I'm the kind of guy that tries out a lot of things with my facial hair, and having the growth rate that I have, it dosn't matter much if I mess it up occationally. It tends to grow back out within 2-3 days anyway, hence the name of the blog, Alex, beardy adventures.

I intend on posting pictures while I blog, so I can show the world my beardy adventures.
But that's not going to all. I intend on posting a bunch of videoes of my gaming sessions, since I'm also the kind of guy that play my fair share of videogames.

Irritatingly enough, the urge to play videogames has returned to me now after a few months of not playing games. Irritating because summer has just arrived to my fair corner of the norwegian wastes and everyone's pulling me out to play volleyball and general summer/outside related activities.

Not that I don't really, really enjoy volleyball and spending time with my awesome friends, but that tingly feeling in my fingertips keeps urging me to want to play games.
I'm not sure if anyone can really relate, but whatever :)

Also irritating is the fact that my ISP is totally screwing me over, and have blocked all ports related to Steam, Minecraft MP, Anarchy Online, WoW/Blizzard downloader and torrents. Generally anything fun. 

I'm also working on a secret project, related to my future. Hopefully this project won't hit to many hitches and I'll be able to start revealing it to close friends etc. soon. We just need to get a few economy things in place first :D *squee* I'm so excited! :D

Till next time, Ciao!
