Minecraft characters look so derpy moving like real people… and yet this is so cool. XDXD
Anonymous asked: how does it feel making money off the back of someone else's work? genuinely interested btw. i mean the money must feel good but intellectually it must sting at least a little bit right? maybe im giving lpers too much credit idk.
It feels good, man. Minecraft is nothing if you don’t do anything with it. Minecraft is what you make it. Minecraft is a box of paints. If you don’t know how to use it, it won’t do anything. If you just used it casually, you’ll have fun, but you might not make any money off it. If you’re really good, you might still not ever sell a painting. But if you’re good and you know how to market yourself and you know the right people, you can make money. Do you think people who sell paintings feel guilty about making money off the oils and brushes? Very doubtful. Mojang gives explicit permission, in their Brands and Assets guideline, for people to record and monetize their game on YouTube. Mojang might not be as big as they are now without that open door policy. It’s an awesome, symbiotic relationship. Why would I feel guilty about that?
And, anyway, the amount of money I make from YouTube is so laughably small for the amount of work I put into it it’s really moot anyway. I would make considerably more working at McDonald’s. But, you know what? I LOVE making videos for YouTube. I love getting to talk to my audience and collab with my friends. It’s the very first time I have EVER had a job that I love. I stay up late into the night working on stuff for my next episode and I wake up excited to “get to work.”
I’m not hurting anyone by producing videos, and in fact I’d argue I’m touching hundreds, maybe even thousands of lives every day with my videos. I get messaged all the time from strangers who watch my videos who say I brightened their crappy day up. Why would any of that make me feel bad about using Minecraft to make money? I’m genuinely interested why you think I should apparently feel guilty or bad about it.
The freak out before the panel (Guude cried), some of the guys cosplayed as themselves, we took amazing group photos of everyone and they all came out blurry. Then they led us through the bowels of the convention center to avoid the throng of crowd (people had been lining up for three+ hours). We arrived through a backdoor where they were broadcasting another panel, and in awkwardness they went on stage before it was time… Despite fears, the panel was great, funny and over far too fast… and afterward was the strange daze of “it’s over…” (Three hours of signing autographs was yet to come…)

:D It was suuuuuper hot in that room and we had to turn the AC off to record because it was so loud. Poor adorable, sweaty Guude. XD
Anonymous asked: Is there any sort of person you consult when you have a big Pokemon-related question? Or is it your general audience lol
I’ll ask the general audience watching my videos, or else the Pixelmon wiki. I’m generally a very “teach yourself” sort of person and enjoy learning/reading up on the wiki. Most of people I’m really close with don’t know anything about Pokemon actually, lol. I have a couple friends from the Aircon server (Kinross07, BizarreJelly5, GreatScottLP, etc.) I might ask.
I’m such a nerd.
My god, press ‘I’ to open your inventory already! :O
itsupsideways asked: Because I’m also in Cali: how’s the recent downpour treating you? I’m nearby Los Angeles, and it’s still going. Yay for actual winter weather!
It’s been raining on and off the last few days, but has stopped for now. It’s great. We really need the rain, and it’s nice to get cold enough to feel like it’s at least a bit cold. :)
Anonymous asked: Do you ever go on the play mindcrack server?
I do sometimes, though not too often. Most of my involvement with PMC is behind-the-scenes, lol.
