Real Talk (Vlog) - What Black Panther Means to Me

Hey peeps,
I'm back in full force on YouTube as well as Twitch. I just finished Amesbury's route on The Lady's Choice and you can check it out on my YouTube channel!
Just after Black Panther's release, I decided to make a vlog & impromptu Q&A about the personal impact the movie has had on me.
The last few weeks have had a positive effect on my self-esteem much like Wonder Woman did. I've been walking taller and prouder of my ancestry than ever before, especially with the genetic test results I got last month (more details and a video coming up on that soon!) and my family history. It felt like my time in the sun was finally here when I saw people who looked and acted like me on screen.

To the cast and crew behind this movie, thank you. You've done a lot for the geek and nerd community.
Special thanks to Grim Toadstool for the questions during the livestream!

My Black Panther review will be coming up next on my Mixlr page. Until then, please feel free to check out my YouTube and Twitch channels and my Mixlr showreel under my social media tab and the top of the page!

明けましておめでとう, or 2018 feels so promising already & my new donation page

Hey peeps,
Hope you're having a great 2018. Though it's only 5 days in, already things feel really exciting for 2018. Besides the tech upgrades and gratitude rituals, the roster of upcoming films, games, and tv shows has material everybody can get excited about. I'm not sure if it's just the newness of the new year or it's 2018 in particular but it feels like there's a gorgeous tinge of optimism and motivation all around (and I'm totally okay with this).
I'm also enjoying the Twitch marathon of Yu-Gi-Oh extensively. At first I wrote off the series after the  original series ended its run in the US. But after watching 5D's this week, I'm hooked again. Though I've never been competitive with Yu-Gi-Oh, going through this marathon has had me looking up decks again and restocking the classics. It's even gotten me curious about the other summoning methods (pendulum and accel). I know in the end it's elaborate marketing, but for me it's more of a card playing nostalgia factor. Anything that gets me closer to my inner child is a win-win for me.

State of the Dojo - Holiday Sabbatical

Hey peeps,
Hope your holiday season has been wonderful. Between the snowfall and the prep for a new year, it has been exciting for me.
Thanks for understanding the literal radio silence the past few months. Earlier this year, I graduated with my undergraduate degree and so I decided to transition fully to the online station Mixlr. Some snags came up in the logistics of my streaming in terms of tech limitations. I've been using my phone to do broadcasts but the production has been rough lately. Nevertheless, I'm doing my best until I can update my devices.
I've also taken a creative sabbatical to recharge and prep for graduate school next year. It's certainly helped as my ideas have come back in full force and I'm excited to share them with you.
I've posted my spoiler-free review of Star Wars: The Last Jedi on my Mixlr page. I've also recorded the spoiler review which I'll post next weekend (but if anyone's interested in hearing it sooner, comment here or DM on my Twitter page and I'll send the file to you exclusively).
2018 is very exciting media and opportunity-wise. Awards season is coming up, longtime franchises are concluding, new plots are starting, and loads of new cons I'm excited to attend.
As 2017 winds down, I wish all of you Happy Holidays and Happy New Year.
May the Force be with you all along with Peace and Long Life!

DJ MK's now on Twitch!

Hey peeps, DJ MK here.

I got back into videos but not in the way I imagined. I'm back via video games and Twitch. My friends kept on saying video games have been super integral to my life. I didn't realize how integral until doing my current series.

I watch let's-players everyday. I read competitive gaming stats even if I don't necessarily play some of the titles. I even make that crazy dream of one day playing competitively despite being well-past the average age bracket let alone not being the usual demographic in almost every sense. But these things are alive and well even with the trials of college, funds, and my stubborn tendency to procrastinate.

TL;DR - I'm glad I'm able to share more with you, especially getting back into the gaming and streaming communities. If you want to play with me or have titles to recommend, don't hesitate to message or comment. I'm open to doing more multiplayer games and any gaming advice. My favorites are in fighting, city building, RTS, and action-adventure titles.

So come and join me in my adventures on Twitch and YouTube. I've been broadcasting everyday at 2pm EDT. But I'll let you know if schedules change via Twitter, Twitch, and Discord.

Stay gold my friends and I'll see you in the next episode!

<3 DJ MK
