New Cosplay9 June 2023
Wow it's been a crazy long time since I've made any updates. My usual cosplay venue of choice Anime North has been out of commission for a while due to the Covid-19 Pandemic we've all had to deal with but I was able to throw together a Kitty Cat Katarina for the later-than-usual Anime North last year. This year for 2023 I finally completed my Ashe cosplay I've had in the works for a few years that was meant to debut in 2020. Check them out here.

More information here.

Endless twitch TV Improvements7 June 2017
Vodcast support has been added to Endless Twitch TV. By default it will prioritize live streams over vodcasts only reverting to displaying vodcast streams if no one that you follow is currently live. Vodcast streams will show up in yellow in the streams list. Along with the added support for vodcasts I have removed the support previously added for playlists. Twitch had made some changes a while back that broke the way I handled playlist streams anyway so I felt it was a good time to drop support. With the addition of vodcasts as a thing I'm not worried about no longer supporting playlist streams as I feel the vodcast feature will be the option more widely used. If the need arises in the future I may look back at reintroducing support for playlist streams. I have also made a slight tweak to how the program operates when there are no longer any streams or vodcasts online. Rather than reverting to an odd undefined state the stream will just stay set to the most recently watched stream, that'll allow you to stick around in chat for a while since you've got nothing else to watch for the time being anyway. As always you can see for yourself here.

Cosplay Section!8 June 2016
I've been doing cosplay for less than a year now, but I'm finding the process of making props and costume pieces really enjoyable so I've decided to create a section for this website dedicated to showing off the costumes and props I've made. You'll find a lot of pictures and accompanying descriptions detailing the creation process if you're interested in how I did it, if not, you'll still be pleased to find pictures of the finished products in all of their glory here.
EnchantmentChase Website Now Up27 April 2016
A few years back I came up with a new way to play Magic: The Gathering in a manner similar to Planechase but with my favourite card type, enchantments. I've created a mini website showcasing the format, discussing how it is played along with providing a complete list of enchantment cards that are playable in the format. If you're looking for a fun, casual, multiplayer experience for your Magic playgroup to try out I recommend giving it a shot. You can check out the site here.
Endless Twitch Tv Chat Squish Feature is Now Live15 April 2016
Continuing development of Endless Twitch TV, I have just added an optional feature that allows the video player to squish down horizontally when then settings menu/chat pane is opened. This will make it so that Twitch chat can be kept open while not cutting off the right side of the stream video. The defualt behaviour will remain with the video player not squishing down when the side pane is opened. You'll find the default operating mode optimal if you watch streams that do not have anything important that is covered up by having the chat open. Both modes will still have the video player taking up the entire page when the setting pane is closed.
Boss Mode Enabled is Now at a New Time15 March 2016
Going forward, our weekly show over at Boss Mode Enabled is going to be on Wednesdays. The time remains unchanged at 7pm EST. This Wednesday we'll Be continuing our playthrough of Kingdom Hearts.
Endless Twitch Tv PiP Feature is Now Live27 January 2016
The ability to display a secondary stream in an inset, muted video player now exists. The second stream will display in the bottom left corner of the screen in much the same way that the picture-in-picture mode operates on conventional televisions. A PiP window for any stream you follow can be opened by pressing the PiP button on the desired stream in the settings pane. The PiP stream can then be changed by pressing the PiP button for a different stream or it can be closed by pressing the PiP button for the stream that is currently open in the PiP video player. In the future I plan to allow the user to customize the position of the PiP video player so that they can position it in a location that is convenient for them at the time they are using it. The PiP window does not currently change to a different stream if the stream it is displaying goes offline, this will likely be added in a future update.
