Losing sight

When people start a blog, Lets Play or whatever they normally start doing so because they enjoy it and not start simply for the sake of profit and if you are lucky people will notice what you do and join you with what you are enjoying doing. If you are unlucky then you either carry on doing it because you enjoy it or give up and move to something else.

Over time you will start to get better and better (only have to look at Tweaked for your Pleasure’s archive) and with this you will aim to become better and better. This could mean a better writer, editor, gamer and what not but regardless you will aim to improve on it and this is what will define you.

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure returns

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure

After quite a long delay with Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure I am pleased to say it is now coming back although it will no longer be weekly as originally planned but “as and when”.

Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure will be coming back in two forms – the reviews and the rants which both have their own style of editing and other things I am sure you do not care about.

For the reviews I will be carrying on as I normally have – just get something, whack it in front of the camera and then review it in a half arse way – much like how Dr Ashens does them which is what my reviews are influenced by. The next one though is the rants and honestly I figured I would go back to the original idea I had for them – allow people to give ideas!

Comments are a pointless relic

Does anyone even care?

Does anyone even care?

As one of the millions of bloggers I have always wished for people to comment and get involved in a discussion but like a few other bloggers the discussion that relates to the things I write about is being discussed on another website and not my own and again like other bloggers I have tried to get them involved on here.

The more I think about this the more I come to the understanding that comments on most blogs is actually pointless for a few reasons. The first is simple – most people when they create a blog they are expecting to create a community when people will discuss on the subject. That is fine for some blogs but a blog like mine people visit to enjoy the content and then go on about their lives and if they enjoyed the content then more often than not they will post it on a forum somewhere they often visit and discuss it with “like-minded people” to them.

Happy Hanukkah!

Yes, I am aware there was no actual article today. I was meant to write one but I completely forgot or to be actually honest, I was lazy to do so.

So Happy Hanukkah. For those that wish to learn more about Hanukkah, there is a good article on Snat’s Blog Archive: Hanukkah – The Festival of Lights.

I hope everyone has a good Hanukkah and I will be back in the New Year with new rants, new reviews, new PHP tutorials. I will however be uploading the final parts of Final Fantasy VI Advance (excluding Dragon’s Den etc) and one more Tweaked for your Viewing Pleasure and if you are lucky I may do a end of year special video but I doubt it will be with Popmanw this time.

The wheels on the bus

.... a sight I am sure you all seen

If you are a long-term reader of Tweaked for your Pleasure then I am pretty sure you are aware that I do not like the public bus service that runs near me and yet again today we have another horror story.

So the other day I was coming home from a place that is long dead when I had to get the bus which the school children uses. While I normally have no problems with that bus as the children go upstairs and there is room below, I seem to have it on the day where a few people who was getting on the bus had the biggest ego in the world – an ego so powerful that it makes Final Fantasy’s Kefka look like he is actually a normal jester.

Legal issues in setting up an internet based radio station

As you may know I currently been doing a radio station called Tweaked for your Listening Pleasure and I asked a friend of mine called Dave over at Amazing World Music (yep, same person that provides the music in my videos) about the legal side of it and lets just say there was barely anything out there when it comes to online radio in the United Kingdom.

With that in mind, Dave went out researching and has compiled a report on what he found out. All credit goes to him and hopefully it helps someone else. Just remember none of us are lawyers and well, we can be wrong. Any comments, different view points or if anyone actually is a lawyer in this field – please do comment as we would love know the law exactly.

Tweaked for your Listening Pleasure

Just a bit of news today. First thing first, Tweaked for your Listening Pleasure has officially opened although there is a lot of work left to do in its actual planning. It is currently playing loads of things you likely never heard of before and in future, will have some shows from people you do not care about.

So come on over and listen and all that good stuff.

The second thing is a tiny poll. If you float around on the Facebook or Twitter fan pages, you may notice there is a picture of a puppet of a dolphin which is nameless. If you have any ideas of any names, please do post them in the comments below and I will whack up a poll with the names.

Farewell WordPress email updates

It has been a few months now from when I started using WordPress Jetpack for email updates and honestly, it sucks. I am unable to limit which post it sends out, which categories and hell, I can’t delay the sending of it.

What this means is I am switching back to Feedburner for email updates. Now I have seen that there is actually more people on Feedburner than WordPress Jetpack but for those that may have never signed up for the old Feedburner emails you can do so here: Subscribe to Tweaked for your Pleasure by Email.

I will be updating the site to change the email subscription to Feedburner but will be enabling it for the next article. I will leave the old one running for a while and then will slowly get rid of it. I would import the old emails myself, but ethically for those that didn’t sign up for Feedburner would be signing up for something they never want and that is spam.
