Some of the new additions to my X-Files collection! Ordered from a reddit user from the X-Files subreddit. It was everything I hoped for and so much more. These pictures are only about half of what was in the box. There's even an X-Files watch that probably hasn't worked since 2000 but I love it all the same.

I have an invite to give away, but for a price. I don't want money. I want proof that you donated at least $20 US dollars to a no-kill animal shelter, mental illness awareness fund, Net Neutrality support fund, or a wildlife conservation fund.

My game Paranormal is a horror game. Basically a haunted house simulator. I included the feature shown in this video as a testing tool for my in-game testing. I'm thinking of making it a secret unlockable feature when the game is released. What do you think?

I imagine that most of you reading this are already aware of how much the cable monopolies are threatening #netneutrality , but for anyone who isn't, this clip from John Oliver lays out perfectly what's at stake, and why we're even talking about this right now.

The FCC  (Federal Communications Commission ) is proposing rules that would allow ISPs (internet service providers) like AT&T, Comcast and Verizon to pick and choose your internet plan, what you do have access to and what you do not.

How does it work now: if you have an internet connection – you have access to all of the internet, the good, the bad, and the ugly. If you have internet access you have access to it all, free and paid. You have a choice to what you see and what you don’t. 

How it will work if this bill passes: your ISP will be able to give you different access plans to what you are able to see, which websites will be served and which ones you won’t have access to. More than that, this bill will also make it possible for your ISP to charge the website owners for making their websites available within their network. It will open a door to all kinds of abuse… because MONEY. It’ll start slowly, by reducing the load speeds and degrading the quality, but It’ll happen. 

If you are a user, it will affect you. If you are a website owner it will affect you. Most of us don’t realize just how important this is: right now you have a voice, but you may not have it for very long. If this bill passes, you may not have a place to speak up. So I urge you to do it now.

It is happening in the US, but it is only a matter of time until it happens where you are as well. You don’t have to be from the US to sign the petition and stop this madness. 

Some of you may know who I am, what I do and why. My project is a free health and fitness website oriented for at-home training and budget nutrition. It is a global resource dedicated to making fitness accessible and it is supported exclusively via donations (no pay-for-downloads, no ads, no product placement). Thousands all over the globe who cannot afford a gym membership, personal trainer’s time or even a pair of trainers use my website and it is changing lives every single day it is up. Projects like that will be the first ones to be eradicated. 

Everything we love about the web, the freedom of expression and freedom of information, everything we take for granted can be taken away from us. Speak up now, fight for what matters. 

Sign the petition:

Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky WEB from me.

After listing to it a dozen times, I've decided Michael Jackson's new album, Xscape is good. They 'modernized' the original unreleased songs AND also included the original versions on the album. I am totally okay with this.

Here's a few work-in-progress screenshots of Paranormal's Unreal Engine 4 remake/port I've been working on.
