Amensia

    Well, This was Unexpected

    For years, I had heard the name “Amnesia” in the gaming world. The YouTube famous game that started a horror trend. That was all I knew. Game, horror, popular.

    Today, I played Amnesia for the first time. I was a bit skeptical going in. Not sure what to expect.

    Two hours later, I had to pry myself away from the computer. I was hooked, I wanted to keep playing! I’m so surprised by how much I enjoyed it.

    I have a feeling the circumstances helped. Playing live on stream with a group of people cheering me on definitely made me forget about how I usually dislike not being being able to fight back. And the chat helped me when I got stuck.

    By the way, props to the Reverb Empire for helping me cautiously and without spoilers. For letting me try things and not getting frustrated when it took me longer than normal to understand everything.

    I can’t wait to keep playing. I’m intrigued!

    I wonder what’s going to happen.

    Man, that thing in the water. Munching on extremities for distraction. hahaha! That was a great part. OOOOOPEEEEEEEEEN! hahahahaha!

    Alright. Must go to sleep.
    Hopefully without nightmares.
    Thanks for reading,

    Twitch Surprises

    Still at a Loss for Words

    Today was whirlwind of joy and unbelievable emotions. I can’t properly express how happy and moved I am by the way you guys stand by my side. How we have built together this space that feels like home.

    I love you, and I am grateful that we have come to know each other.

    I still feel stunned. Just… I’m just thinking… and re-living today and the last 7 months in my mind.

    Here are the two of the surprises of the day.

    Thank you for taking the time to do this. Thank you for your words and your thoughts. It warms my heart to be able to know what you sound like, and even what some of you look like. You’re not only pictures any more. <3 Thank you, Omi, for editing the clips together! And thank you, Thor, for being so darn cute.

    Shampa25, Photoshop Professional PhD of the Reverb Empire. You beautiful, gentle soul. Thank you for compiling all of these moments for us. A very big hug to you, my dear friend.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you. Forever and ever.

    All my love,
    Malu

    The Reverb Knights

    For months, I’ve wanted to send out little gifts to all the Twitch mods that protect the Reverb Empire (that’s what we call my Twitch channel, hehe!).

    I knew I wanted to send them various stickers, but I needed to find something extra.

    Today, I finally figured out what.

    I made them personalized metallic vinyl stickers! Their names in armor. The Reverb Knights. Woo!

    The Reverb Knights

    I can’t seem to stop making vinyl stickers. Send help. STOP ME!

    hahaha!

    Hugs,

    Studio Construction – Day 1

    This is the room for the new studio. The first step is to tear down this “tunnel” that was made to hide a huge duct for an old central air conditioning system that is no longer used.

    The calm before the storm.

    The mess after. Hahaha!

    Thankfully, while this was going on, I managed to build a basic setup in the living room that will allow me to keep streaming and working in between CLANKS!.

    Moving Dreams

    Responsibilities = Nightmares

    We moved 2 weeks ago. Yesterday, in the middle of the night, I suddenly remembered there were still things we left at the old house. I had already turned in the keys to the owner, so I started to panic. I wondered if there was a way to secretly enter the house and remove the rest of our things to avoid the owner charging us extra rent for not being out by the 31st.

    I felt crushed. Why had I thought that the move was over?

    Blink. Blink.

    Because it was.

    It was just dream.

    Haha! Why is it that our troll brains insist on torturing us with nightmares about big responsibilities? As recently as last year, I dreamed I wasn’t going to graduate from Berklee because I had forgotten to attend a class during a whole semester. Variations of this dream happen once in a while involving other important things in my life.

    I also resent when Troll Brain makes me dream of a beautiful, best-case scenario regarding something I’m worried about. After things work out perfectly, I wake up feeling relieved and happy… only to realize I’ve been punked.

    Do you guys dream about stuff like this, too?

    Haha!

    Hugs,
    Malu
