Jennifer Greenburg – The Rockabillies

I’ve got a soft spot for the most eccentric geeks who go a long way to live how they want, even if it’s weird. As it turns out, there’s an entire Rockabilly community for recreating the lifestyle of 1950s America. It’s not just about having retro clothes, furniture, and appliances, but also about repairing and maintaining those things for decades instead of replacing them like we do now. These people must be a blast to hang out with.

Check out that tube TV! That thing has got to be expensive to restore and maintain, but you can't deny that it's cool. How hard is it to get a DTV converter connected to an old timey twin-lead antenna connection?

Hideki Naganuma – Teknopathetic (e-Pop’n Disco 80’s Mix)

I started listening to RadioSEGA again and they’ve been playing this song from Ollie King, an arcade skateboarding game that was the spiritual successor of Top Skater. Sampling artist Hideki Naganuma provided the soundtrack, including remixes of a couple of his own songs from Jet Set Radio Future. I had no idea Ollie King had beats like this.

Stan Freberg – St. George And The Dragonet

From 1951, this is St. George and the Dragonet. It’s a parody of the then-new TV show Dragnet…with a dragon. We salute you, Stan Freberg!

The Twitch Streaming Experience

Thursday, April 2nd, 2015 at 2:00 pm | Stream | Video

For April Fools’ Day, I brought my weekly stream back to Twitch and did annoying things popular Twitch streamers do a lot. I played a mainstream game online, I had a webcam which covered up my money and ammo counts, I had a lot of useless crap taking up space on the screen, and I constantly begged for followers and donations. Even Moobot was spamming up my chat, which had the default cuss filter on despite the NSFW language onscreen. This all went horribly right, even with Twitch constantly buffering and crashing and Xbox Live dropping my connection several times.

Chocolatey

Chocolatey brings the power of Linux’s package manager to Windows, letting you download and install applications from the command prompt. Either that means nothing to you or you’ve already clicked the link because you couldn’t contain your excitement. I reinstalled Windows yesterday and used this to quickly get my applications back.

If Chocolatey Gallery has an application I want, I open command prompt as administrator (Windows Logo cmd Ctrl+Shift+Enter) and run choco install and the application name. With no further input, Chocolatey downloads and installs the package, avoiding unwanted add-ons. You can add dozens of applications in one choco install command and it installs them all one-by-one. To update everything, just do cup all.

Git is revision control software used mainly for software projects. BakaMo Studios uses a TortoiseSVN and a Subversion repository to do that. Choco doesn't just install TortoiseSVN, but Unity and Tiled too! Seriously, this thing is good.
