Seeing the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse

I traveled to Beatrice, Nebraska to see a total solar eclipse on August 21st, 2017. It was difficult to film due to mother nature being difficult. Fortunately the clouds cleared a bit and stopped drowning out the moon’s silhouette.

Originally, I was going to see this in Pawnee City, Nebraska but they looked even worse on weather radar so I decided to stay put. I was gonna film this at a parking lot in Beatrice however when the eclipse was about 20 minutes away another small storm cloud formed right west of us. It appeared as if the storm cloud would be right on top of us during eclipse time. Judging by the looks on ppl’s faces, everyone had the exact same thought. So basically half the crowd (me included) decided to drive a few miles south, barely missing the storm. This is the first total solar eclipse in the United States in almost a 100 years and something I’ve always wanted to witness.

How To Get Fired!

To not go too much into detail on how I earn a living, my 2nd job I work as a contractor. I spoke with an employee who I never met before and he had a bit of an attitude. It kinda comes with the territory in the work that I do so it was no biggie for me. However though, right after we got done talking, this elderly client approaches and starts asking him questions. As the old man was walking away the guy said “loser” under his breath and even put an “L sign” on his forehead.

If that old man hadn’t been hard of hearing and didn’t have his back turned he likely would have noticed the transgression and there would’ve been a big problem.

Uhh… craigslist sellers

“I turned down a few people already”

I can’t stand craigslist sellers who steadfastly refuse to sell to out-of-state buyers. Especially when it is painstakingly obvious that the item in question has been listed for weeks and they aren’t getting any local pickups. If that happens perhaps u ought to change your strategy and give distant buyers more consideration? To outright reject ppl like that is fucking stupid, especially when offering to cover ALL shipping charges.

I found an extremely good deal, haven’t been able to find anywhere else and pretty frustrating when you’ve been searching around for days.

I really wish sellers like this would just go away. All they’re doing is wasting they’re time and everyone elses. I sell a lot on craiglist and I’d say about a third of all my buyers are out-of-state.

Tango Down

This is Minecraft PvP with close friends and the person I killed is a VERY good player. He wins almost every battle so this was a pretty big deal when I killed him. He was focused entirely on another player while I was hiding behind some trees, I came from the side and he didn’t see me coming.

We had a 24 hour truce and in the meantime we build secret bases and weapons. It’s pretty cut throat because when a player dies, they lose hours worth of work. LOL he cleary wasn’t happy about getting killed but it’s all good we’re still friends 🙂

ZenArcher – A Pleasure Knowing Him

Zen and I both had YouTube channels and made videos frequently way back in the day. At the time we never really crossed paths during our times on YouTube. I saw him on Stickam a couple of times, we spoke some but other than that we really didn’t know each other.

Over the years I finally grew tired of video making and moved on to other things and I think to a lesser extent so did he. He didn’t make as many videos as he used to and became really hooked on Minecraft. It took a while longer, but Kenny eventually got me sucked into the whole Minecraft craze. During this time I was completely clueless about how to play the game and I was introduced to Zen soon after. Zen taught me just about everything there is to know about Minecraft. That game may have some crummy graphics but don’t let the looks fool ya as it is very complex. It was during this time I managed to get to know the guy and we started to become friends.

Zen must have told me his life story at least three times over on Skype as we were playing. I have a bit of an ADD issue and playing MC at the same time… yea I didn’t really pay much attention the first time. LOL. However, what I noticed is Zen’s the type of guy who didn’t mind telling his story over and over. He never got angry when I occasionally wasn’t paying attention and being an ADD that is something a person encounters from time to time. He could be a bit of a pain in the ass too but overall he was a good guy. Additionally, he was the type of person who if he thought you were fucking up he’d let ya know about it.

He had a very interesting life and he was truly one of a kind.

R.I.P. Zen
