How to Build a PC pt3

A new video is up! I’m glad I finished it early because the Mueller Report was just submitted and I want to jump right into not being allowed to read it. SO enjoy this tech goof instead. Thanks!

Build a PC with Me!

To start of my YouTubery I am sharing my recent experience of building a new computer. I prepared and researched for months, and watched tons of PC building tutorials. Those builders were good! They were TOO good.

These people forgot what it’s like to stare into a sprawling pile of wires and think WUUUUUUUUT??? Did I just waste a thousand dollars?!

Most videos I saw were 20-40 minutes long. It took me a day and a half. Some parts were smooth, there were a few accidents, and healthy serving of sighs and forehead rubbing. It was fun!

Stay tuned next week for Part 2- The Builder’s Struggle

I am a Patron, I say!

Today I finally supported creators on Patreon. These are some of the people I watch regularly and support. I couldn’t pick everyone I wanted and I know there are some out there I missed. That’s for wave 2, when I have more monies.

I am giving these channels $1 a month. Some only asked for a dollar, some asked for more. Even if I’m locked out of some reward content, just seeing the thank you messages and videos made it worth it. I’d share but they were just for me.

I wish I could say my reasons were purely altruistic, but the truth is I am gearing up to be a YouTuber myself. Breakin’ in to the streaming biz. Chasing the digimonz down the dark web. Uh, Fornite? It’s something I’ve always kicked myself for not doing.

Starting next Friday, I am going to release a video every week. The first few will be a series about me building a computer. Then I’m going to explore my interests – comedy, videogames, politics, cats, physical fitness, social dynamics, self-improvement, philosophy – and see where it goes.

I’m not creating a Patreon for myself yet. I want to earn it. My goal this year is to make $1 off of YouTube. If you’d like to follow me for this project, please subscribe to my YouTube channel. Act now and you can be my 50th sub! Only 100 until I can get a custom URL with my name instead of this one – https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC2MVhZQdQCsPVgGMsyANDvQ. Although it does roll off the tongue.

Thanks for reading, and supporting any creatives in your life. Also taking bets until the day I unironically say “smash that like button”. Stay tubed!

Casa de Haha – January 2019

This Saturday night there are a myriad of incredible, well-produced, significant comedy shows in Denver. 
There’s also mine!
My monthly showcase Casa de Haha returns every last Saturday at 8pm at the eclectic Mutiny Information Cafe! Be at the there!

And stick around after for the wonderful comedy and music video mash-up – Comedy Saved the Video Star at 10pm! I’m their new monthly lead-in and this month I’m on the show and chose an insane music video.

Casa de Haha RETURNS

Tl;dr – Casa de Haha is back! And in its original form – a monthly live stand-up showcase. Join us on the last Saturday of every month, 8pm at Mutiny Information Cafe. January 26th is the first show.

I ran this comedy room at my sister’s indie record store, Sweat Records, in Miami for almost 7 years. It helped me grow as a comic, try new things, showcase comedy I loved, and provide a cornerstone for a small comedy scene.

I should have continued it the moment I moved to Denver, but I saw a scene stuffed with showcases and experimented making it a public access TV show. I should have done both. Regrets aside, the Denver comedy scene is more spacious these days and I can’t wait to contribute.

Casa is a stand-up showcase, but there are themed nights where comedians are creatively challenged to experiment. Some of my favorites were…

Sets with Pets

I didn’t’ call it that but should have. With all the animals, we were on high alert for stage pooping, luckily only done in joke form.

aka Last Comic Misunder-Standing

Each of our comic judges had different personas (overly agreeable, wishy-washy, asshole) that judged comics, sometimes getting in their heads. The podcast version is available here: http://danielreskin.com/07-casa-gots-talent/

Character Night

This became our annual standby. Comics do sets as created characters. It’s where I was Australian shock comic Raniel Deskin, slam-poet Truth Particles, and the smart-phone mime Deangelus Applesteam. Other comics also were stupid.

Charity Event?

We had a Hahathon for Hydration Awareness. We weren’t telling you to drink, save, or clean it. We just needed to make sure you know.

My favorite big name booking

Here are some of the new themes I want to try this year:

  • a VR comedy night where the comic navigates a virtual world while doing comedy
  • “Odd Alan” tribute night where comedians karaoke their own parody songs
  • THEODORE Talks, way better than TED
  • a Fitness night where the audience is in a workout class with comics leading the exercises.

The best part is the show will be moving from my favorite record/book/coffee/culture store in Miami, to my favorite one in Denver – Mutiny Information Cafe! A perfect fit.

Speaking of perfect fits, Casa de Haha will be snugly tucked before the 10pm show, the long-running music video comedy party, Comedy Saved the Video Star, run by JD Lopez.

Denver – your last Saturday of the month free comedy power block is ready!
