Gaming like a motherfucker


Welcome to my Monday Morning Rant for Monday the 19th of April. I’ve not done much the past week but play computer games (playing Outriders right now) so I rant about that!

Monday Morning Rant


This morning I rant about the Rock ‘n’ Roll attitude of Chrissie Hynde of The Pretenders, Stevie Nicks too, social media and a mate who like myself, turns into a bit of a monster when drunk.

Goodbye Buzzsprout

I’ve made the call to terminate my monthly subscription to Buzzsprout, a service which hosts my podcasts and seeds them onto other platforms like Spotify etc. Buzzsprout run a Facebook “community” which IMHO has been a complete waste of time as you’re not allowed to promote or discuss your podcasts with others who use the Buzzsprout service, so instead people end up asking really generic, safe, boring and useless questions.

Last week the moderators put this message up:

Moving forward, there will be ZERO tolerance for soliciting this group with your goods or services.

There are no warnings and you will be banned from the group after your first offense.

It doesn’t matter if someone is asking for an editor and you simply offer your editing services. Our group is not the place to promote your own services.

Acceptable:
“Does anyone know of a podcast editor?” Yes, I used We Edit Podcasts and really liked them

Not Acceptable:
“Does anyone know of a podcast editor?” Yes, I am one. DM me.

I replied in the comments with “Way to kill your community guys! Good one!!!!!” and got this response from a moderator: “Justin Fox this won’t kill the community, but it may become a little more quiet; that’s totally fine. Much preferred actually.
A few well thought out, high quality responses will provide more value than dozens of low quality replies every time”.

Gotta love that snide reply huh?!

“There are no warnings and you will be banned from the group after your first offense.” – This is the bit that doesn’t sit right with me. I’ve founded and run a few successful communities in my career and not once ever did we ever have such a black and white rule as this. To this date I’ve spent $180 US Dollars on their service and I’m glad they won’t be getting another dollar out of me in future!

Oops, focus.

“I’m 46, hit rock bottom a few years ago, got help, therapy, meds then finally I quit smoking weed. That was a huge step. Soon after quitting weed I got off the meds. A year off the meds and I’ve quit smoking nicotine. Now I’m working on drinking less. You either get mentally stronger, or you don’t”.

I left this comment on a Joe Rogan clip on YouTube yesterday and it looks like I got a fair few responses so I thought I’d read them all out this morning.

Oh noes! I’ve lost my Ray-Ban Justin sunnies on a drunken night out!

This morning I share a funny story about Justin Hemmes, recreating Izabella, Jimi Hendrix’s 68 Olympic White Stratocaster and also the value of playing with feeling vs playing in time to a metronome.

Monday Morning Rant – Buy a new guitar or get the GT-R back on the road?


MMR for Monday the 1st of March 2021.

So I’ve got a bit of money saved up. Last week I bought myself a new practise amp, leads and strings for my guitars and I’ve been toying with the idea of buying myself a new guitar, but after yesterday’s cruise I’m super inspired to get my GT-R back on the road. I’ve not got enough money to do both, so what do I do?!
