Music by SatisJaxon

2020 has been an interesting year for the lot of us, to say the least. Things have been changing, becoming more difficult. I’ve known many to give up on their pursuits, others to embrace the challenges, and some to lean into past dreams.

For me, it’s not that easy. I have so many interests and hobbies, I am always dabbling, doodling, or creating something. I can’t focus on one thing and it takes forever to share finished work. In light of this I will share four songs I have wrote.

What is to be shared is solely in lyrical form. I have melodies worked out for them all but not clean enough for me to share comfortably. Enjoy…

“Pity Me”

By SatisJaxon

No one can deny it,

Open your mouth, you’ll soon be lyin,

Bloody hands,

Withered Dreams,

Greedily,

takin all of me,

Drink it up,

All that poison,

Lap it up,

Til it’s all gone,

Bloody hands,

Withered Dreams,

Pathetically,

beggin pity me,

I’m broken and alone,

Tortured and gone,

Words between familiars,

Become an awkward song,

I try to lose the past,

But nothing seems to last,

Even if I run,

There are scars I can’t get passed,

My efforts to be normal,

Become a struggle, more and more so,

As I’m fightin,

Every war,

For the prize,

Of my poor soul,

Every time I hear I’m sorry,

Nothing changed,

Nothing buried,

I feel a pain,

Turning in my gut,

Telling me,

to just give up…

On you,

Because I’m broken and alone,

Tortured and gone,

Words between familiars,

Become an awkward song,

I try to lose the past,

But nothing seems to last,

Even if I run,

There are scars I can’t get passed,

Now no one is denyin,

Open wide,

Still you’re lyin,

Bloody hands,

Withered Dreams,

Greedily,

Takin all of me,

Drink it up,

All that poison,

Lap it up,

Til it’s all gone,

Bloody hands,

Withered Dreams,

Pathetically beggin,

Pity me,

Because I’m broken and alone,

Tortured and gone,

Words between familiars,

Become an awkward song,

I try to lose the past,

But nothing seems to last,

Even when I’ve won,

You keep pulling me right back,

“Informing You”

By SatisJaxon

You’re defensive hittin hard try to justify,

Knowin full well every blow will make em cry,

Chills fill as you’re circling lies,

Frostin up ya heart While you’re tyin bows on forced goodbyes,

Reconsider all the feelings that you thought you felt,

As you’re raging causin’ pain grantin’ damage dealt,

Here you are draggin’ blood across the coals of hell,

Is it worth it, is it really what you tell yourself,

My heads spinnin’ I’ve gone crazy cause I’m thinkin,

Things can never get better while I’m forever waitin,

I gave you chances so its on you,

This is me informing you what I gotta do,

I should be forgivin’ you anyway,

But it’s up to me if you’re gonna stay,

There’s a new batch of kids lookin up to you,

And you’re sh***** on their feelings like you did me too,

Life’s a party get to livin’ fore you die,

Or you wind up eating dirt before you should’ve tried.

Don’t be hatin’ cause I worked my feelings into rhyme,

you should know that I’m leavin’ for the last time,

My heads spinnin’ I’ve gone crazy cause I’m thinkin,

Things can never get better while I’m forever waitin,

I gave you chances so its on you,

This is me informing you what I gotta do,

My heads spinnin’ I’ve gone crazy cause I’m thinkin,

Things can never get better while I’m forever waitin,

I gave you chances so its on you,

This is me informing you what I gotta do,

Project Munchies

I have spent some time away from writing here. So I have decided to share some of my less formal writings starting with my first written comic book script.

This is a satirical look at society in whole as well as popular culture. The story is mature for graphic depiction, language, drug use and innuendos.

This is Project Munchies…

Project Munchies

PAGE ONE (six panels)

Panel 1. It is twilight, and we open to an average family of three, a mother, a father and an eight year old little girl.  The little girl is in a pink tutu.  They are in their Minivan coming home from the little girl’s theatrical performance of some kind.  The little girl is already asleep, centered between the parents in the middle bench seat of the van.  The father is driving, and the mother in the passenger seat as the family travels through a sub-urban community.  You are looking from the inside of the  windshield of the Minivan, centered between the mother and father with the little girl(in a booster seat) asleep.  Her head hangs uncomfortably while her body is held upright by her seat belt.  All whole family is in the frame, and the parents appear to be early to mid 30’s dressed as upper-middle class.

Caption: One night in Buddington Heights.

Mom: Do you wanna look through the pictures I took, when we get home?

Panel 2.  Inside the vehicle, the two parents continue to talk as you can see the child sleeping sound in the back seat.  This panel is solely the child shown in the back, while the parents dialog comes from off panel.

Dad: You know, I was at the program too…

Mom: I want you to tell me how they turned out, jerk.

Panel 3.  Close up on the dad snickering to himself as he continues the conversation.

Dad: I was kidding.  Of course I will help.

Panel 4.  The van coming around the bend, you see a crime scene in the foreground.  There were two police cruisers, lights spinning, one was parked in the drive way of a home and the other one was parked at the curb in front of the home.  One officer was at the door talking to a woman who is apparently crying; While, two other officers wrestle a hand cuffed man to the ground.

 

Mom: You know you have been getting

more and more, what..the…

Panel 5.  Close up on the hand cuffed man.  His eyes are highly irritated to the point where the redness has a faint glow to it, and he is foaming at the mouth.  The man looks crazed and angry, so much so you may even think he was rabid.

 

PAGE TWO (six panels)

Panel 1.  Short wide panel of the profile view of a medium size black SUV driving through suburban style housing.  Speed lines or looks like it is moving kinda quick.  It is almost dawn but still dark.

Caption: Elsewhere in Buddington Heights…

Through windshield:  Pull over, kill him right here.

Panel 2.  View through the windshield of two hit men and their captive.  Hit man 1 is driving he is dressed in a nicely tailored black suit.  He is also african-american, clean shaven, and head shaved smooth.  Hit man 2 in the passenger seat, wearing a suit comparable to the first guy.  He, however, is white with a fade(hair style), and modern square, rounded corner, framed prescription glasses.  Also clean shaven.  The captive in the back seat Is in some very nice casual wear as he sits in the middle, and is easily seen between the two front seats.  Aside from the casual wear you will also notice that he is wearing a black bag/hood over his head, and he is leaned forward with his hands pinned behind his back, as though he is hand cuffed.  The Hit man 2 is talking.  Hit 1 Looking out the windshield and hit 2 looking over at the driver.

Hit man 1:  It’s not about killing him, it’s about the message. 

Hit man 2:  Yea..I know.

Panel 3.  Looking at hit 2 through passenger window.  You can see hit 1 still staring out the windshield emotionless.  Hit 2 is kinda in a daze, now looking forward.

Hit man 2:  Jus, this is my last job…

Hit man 1:  Farretti told me.

Hit man 1:  By the way, we have one more stop before we’re done.

Panel 4.  Both staring out the windshield again and both calm.  Looking from the back seat toward the windshield you see both hit men still looking out the front.  Hit one talking.

Hit man 2:  Let me out.

Hit man 1:  Can’t do that.

Panel 5.  Very small panel of the locking mechanism of the door going down and the sound effect stretched around it.

SFX:  SPLOCT!!

Panel 6.  Hit 2 has a gun out motioning to himself with it and his free hand.  He is emotional and erratic.  Hit 1 interrupts hit 2.

Hit man 2:  Let me out James!

Hit man 2:  Is this job more important than me?!

Hit man 2:  Does it mean–

Hit man 1:  How long have we been partners?

PAGE THREE(six panels)

Panel 1.  Close up hit 1, still calm and talking.

Hit man 1:  What?  Six years now?

Off Panel:  Yeah…

Panel 2.  Medium shot of Hit 1 with one hand on the wheel other hand on the back of Hit 2’s head being smashed face first into the dashboard.  Hit 1 is angry and yelling as he does it.  Hit 2’s glasses fly off his face as blood spews from his mouth and nose.  He has both hands on the dash trying to stop himself from colliding.  

Hit 1:  Then you should know better by now!!!

SFX:  THWACT!

Panel 3.  Wide shot of the Hit men and their captive.  Hit 2’s bloody hands over his bloody face.  Looking over slightly at the joint Hit 1 is handing to him.  Hit 1 is serious again talking with smoke rolling out of his mouth.  The Joint lit and the left bottom palm on the wheel with a zippo lighter in his index finger, middle finger and thumb.  The lighter is open and still lit.

Hit man 1:  This should take the edge off.

Panel 4.  Close up on the hooded captive in the back.  Motionless.

Hit man 1(off panel):  Surprised he slept through that.

Hit man 2(off panel):  How can you talk to me like you’re not about to kill me?

Hit man 2:  Will you even miss me?

Off Panel:  Every day…

Panel 6.  Over the steering wheel out the front windshield out of the driver seat.  Hit 1’s hands tight on the steering wheel as a severed arm smashes into the windshield, blood explodes across the glass.

SFX:  THUD!

Mom: Check out the pictures.

Dad: I will be there in a minute…

Dad: …but first…

Panel 2.  The dad moves closer to the bed with a devious look on his face while holding up a joint.  The mom looks pleasantly surprised.

Dad: So, yes?

Mom: That was a yes.  Now get over here naughty man.

Dad: I like that one.

Mom: Was that Kenneth?

Panel 4.  Mom is facing the father, and he looks quite a bit confused as he points at the laptop screen.  They are practically shoulder to shoulder now.

Dad: That’s your kid.

Dad: Pretty sure…

Mom: What was wrong with him?

Dad: Maybe, bath salts…

Panel 5 and Panel 6 are side by side, the dialog will originate from the designated speaker.

Panel 5. Close up on the mother, facing panel 5 to the right.

Panel 6. Close up on the father, facing panel 4 to the left.

4 P5 Mom: You going to share that treat?

 

PAGE FIVE (six panels)

Panel 1.  There is a small, one story, three apartment structure, in between a mixed neighborhood of two story and single story homes.  This will also be across the street from the the Johnson family residence.  A man, with a ball cap, a light jacket and also a lunch box, is walking up the side walk toward the center apartment in the structure.  The man looks as though he is 25-30 years old.

Panel 2.  The man is now inside the hallway of his apartment hanging up his hat behind the door on a mounted coat hook.  You can see his friend, similar in age, sitting on the couch in the living room, watching T.V. and smoking from a bong.

PAGE EIGHT (one panel and one half of a splash image)

Panel 1.  This panel will be at the very top left of page EIGHT.  It depicts the girl, Tiffany, as she steps outside her front door to the most horrific scene she has ever bared whiteness.  Her face should convey the horror that would be running through this young girl’s brain.

Splash image.  The rest of the page will go as follows.  The left half of the back of Tiffany’s head (at the bottom right hand side of the page) looking out on the streets overran by, what look to be, rabid cannibalistic people, and all of their attention was on her.  It should also show Hit man 2 after exiting the vehicle and left his door open, gnawing on the severed arm, which came in contact with the windshield, but he is now looking at her.  Hit man 1 has left his door open and has dragged the captive out of the back seat and was eating him.  All of the cannibals’ eyes are glowing red, with their mouths foaming.

*Note: The splash image on page EIGHT should line up and match the second half on page NINE.

 PAGE NINE (one panel and the second half of the splash image)

Panel 1.  This panel belongs in the very bottom right hand corner of the page.  All that you see in this panel is, blood soaked, feet, with Tiffany’s teddy bear between them, and the bottom of a tattered evening gown(Tiffany’s mother’s feet).

Splash image.  The rest of the page will go as follows.  The right half of the back of Tiffany’s head (at the very bottom left hand side of the page) looking out at the streets overran by, what look to be, rabid cannibalistic people, and all of their attention is now on her.  On this half you will notice the little, one story, apartment building across the street.  You will also notice Shawn, who was currently devouring his roommate, has now set his sights on Tiffany.  All of the cannibals’ eyes are glowing red, with their mouths foaming.

*Note: The splash image on page EIGHT should line up and match the second half on page NINE.

 PAGE TEN (five panels)

Panel 1.  The setting is a dank and dingy basement, with no true ceiling, just rafters, pipes and ducts.  This panel is looking across the ceiling at the light bulb hanging in the center of the room.

FF: …Tell me what I want to hear.

Panel 2.  A side view of Lieutenant Colonel Leon Wolfe’s legs as he descends the old wooden stairs to the basement.  Right now you see Leon’s combat boots, and camouflaged cargo pants.

Panel 3.  Profile view of the left side of FF sitting in a rickety chair as Leon walks behind him.  Leon is wearing his military issued camouflaged shirt which matches his pants.  FF is wearing a tank top with a button-up tourist style floral shirt, and light tan cargo shorts.  The button up is completely unbuttoned and hanging wide open.  FF is also wearing a ball gag that has a couple straps that holding it on his face.

Panel 5.  FF still standing, now with his hands to his sides, and turned his head to face Leon.  The controller is still in hand.

FF: Firstly, video games increase my hand-eye coordination, and that grants me happy trigger fingers, which in turn makes dudes dead, and second…

PAGE ELEVEN (five panels)

Panel 1.  Leon is handing a cell phone to FF, as he sits on the couch.

Panel 2.  Leon is standing in front of FF who is now sitting on the couch, looking through the photos on the phone.

FF: So…would you say that this particular job has a high likelihood of contact with sexy ladies?

Leon: Pretty good chance of that, as long as you don’t mind that those “sexy ladies” rip the flesh                            from your bones with their teeth.  

FF: Should be aroused?

Leon:                             What the hell is wrong with you?

Panel 3.  Close up on Leon’s face, he is putting pressure between his eyes with his index finger and thumb, in an attempt to relieve his headache.

FF: I guess it is safe to say, you still have an issue or two with clowns.

FF: You will probably hate them until the end of days; Which, evidently is on it’s way.

FF: And we are being contracted to stop it from coming.

Panel 2.  Mimey is still working the clown punching bag over.

FF: Understand, there can be no running around and telling all your mime buddies.

FF: This is an Area 51 level government hush-hush, and we can’t have you blabbing to the silent entertainment community.

Panel 3.  Mimey stands before FF, with his hands on his hips with a look of disapproval on his face.

FF: O.K., so that wasn’t funny…anyway we have to get going.  

Panel 4.  FF is headed toward a doorway off the side of the living room as Mimey positions himself in front of him in order to stop him.

FF: You can go get some essentials around while I slap a saddle on Penelope, then we can head out…

FF: What’s that, you forgot to feed her?  That’s fine. I’ll just give her a snack before we…

Panel 5.  Close up on FF, he is angry and shocked.

FF: You forgot to feed her for six months?!?  Why didn’t you call me???

FF: I am to blame here, I should have never left a living, breathing, animal, with someone who can’t even keep his voice alive…

FF: Not to mention the fact that it smells like rotten ass…She’s still in there isn’t she???

Panel 6.  Mimey is slunk over in shame as FF looks at him inquisitively.

PAGE THIRTEEN (five panels)

Panel 1.  FF and Mimey walk into a garage to see a 1976 purple Fiat two door, FF face palms himself in disbelief.

FF: A Fiat?!?

FF: So, you hate clowns, but you will drive their car?

FF: Do you bang all their clown wives too???

FF: How the hell do you expect to fit any gear in that thing?

Panel 2.  Close up on FF with one hand on his hip and the other hand extended out in a manner to suggest he is presenting the vehicle, with his head turned to talk shit to Mimey.

FF: It’s not that we have to leave a thing or two behind, we, literally, have no room to bring anything, not in that micro machine.

FF: Yeah, great fuel economy…right.

FF: Whatever you say closet clown.

Panel 3.  Mimey is down on his hands and knees head down sulking as FF continues to pick at him.

FF: Just start packing shit up, whatever won’t fit is left behind.

FF: …and get up off the floor.  Don’t you think that the crying mime act is a bit cliché?

Panel 4.  FF is now on the phone and Mimey is in the background carrying an invisible object that looks to be incredibly heavy.

FF: Mimey and I will be on the road in about twenty minutes.

FF: We took the job Leon, so consider it as good as done.

Panel 5.  Mimey is tightening an invisible rope to secure the invisible items to the roof top with one foot pressed against the side of the vehicle as he pulls it tight.

FF: Are you done yet?  

FF: Get in the car already…

 

PAGE FOURTEEN (six panels)

Panel 1.  The Fiat is now parked in front of Leon’s Liquor.  Dialog is off panel.

Off panel: How am I supposed to take you two seriously?

Panel 2.  FF shrugs and tries to explain what had brought them back.

FF: We just got a little lost that’s all.

Leon: Lost?  You are supposed to be top notch “fixers,” and you can’t even find the, god damn, job site!

Panel 3.  Close up on Leon’s face angry and yelling.

Leon: Jesus, boys, this is a high priority case and you two are bumbling around like a couple of idiots.

Panel 4.  FF and Mimey are in front of Leon, who is obviously still pissed off.

FF: To be fair, I was being fed directions by a mime.  It was like GPS charades…I always lose charades…

Leon:           Then why was he giving you directions?

FF: Did you hear that?  quiet down you mime freak, and listen…

Utopia Bound 8/11/20

We have a big news week this week! So we will go down that rabbit hole once we get there, but first an apology. Last week I had quite a bit going on and I announced that there would be no update for said week. As of this week, I have quite a bit to announce, but again I find myself short on time, I must soldier on!

First things first, Eric of JenEricLive is pursuing a job of full-time graphic artist. This puts him in the brackets with a great many full-time content creators, and between the two of them, Jen and Eric are truly fantastic! Please show them the support they deserve, and they will give you the content you deserve, in return.

JenEricLive is not the only brand looking to the future. Both NitroPunk and Forice have made another tremendous leap to a new platform. Everyone is looking to the future, and to the both of them, that means YouTube! Whichever way you march, they are marchin’ on over to YT.

After talking to Forice and NitroPunk, it seems just natural. The close on Mixer last month was a blindside for everyone invested, and a lot of people jumped to the next comfortable platform, as a means to steady ground to figure out the next move. So here we are the next move, at least for these two. YouTube is receiving some great content.

Forice YT

NitroPunk YT

Speaking of great YouTube content, we have a couple more announcements to hit you with! We added two more YouTube channels to the Nontoxic listing, as well as adding a Food and Fitness team to the Utopia Bound list of creators!

First up is our health team Cherko and Elili working to help us get healthy so we can pump out as much incredible creators for as long as possible. So with their new YouTube content Cherko and Family, they are branching out to help gamers become healthier, and thus granting more energized, entertainment for viewers.

Next is some of the most beautiful content I have ever seen. InfnitBlsing is just what the title provides, a seemingly infinite blessing of attractive gourmet dishes. A professional level cook with the passion to teach, this guy really has something to offer! Gaze upon his Video Menu and learn a many great ways to improve your culinary game.

We are currently working on a variety of programs and/or ideas to further Utopia Bound and our community. We too are looking to the future, hoping that we can both help others meet their content creation goals, as well as leading as an example for those who are out there, thinking that there is only one way to be or act.

Just remember…

Be kind and stay fantastic,

Halo Infinite Battle Royale

It has been talked about and ridiculed up to the Halo Infinite gameplay reveal at the Xbox Showcase this year. Many believe that 343i should stay away from the BR genre, while others would like them to embrace the same reasoning that pushed other 4v4-6v6 shooters to the intense war zones we have now.

Whether you want the Halo BR to remain a 3-round burst rifle or become the real “Combat Evolved” version of the franchise, I’ll bring you what to expect out of a full on Spartan Battle Royale…

Map:

First things first, where would this type of battle take place? Why not a destabilized fracture of a Halo ring? Using this would allow for a verity of detail within the fractured installation. Forerunner structures, covenant and human outposts, and even flood remnants and weapons and vehicles to match. As well as enabling iconic settings to the franchise, this would also add to one of the main features to the standard battle royale… restoration.

Restoration:

As in Halo CE, Spartans will return to the requirement of using med kits. Now because of the ring destabilization, the Spartan shield recovery is limited. Shield can only be charged with a “charge stabilizer.” Both types available in two sizes.

A lot of thought went into making this concept both comparable yet different from other standing titles in the genre. With the customization landmarks set from Halo Reach to Guardians, the rest of the game dynamics are set.

Aesthetics:

Visual customization a cross of Reach and H5. From the helmet, individual shoulders, arms, chest, legs, feet, and accessory, making for incredibly unique Spartans throughout the battlefield.

Loadout:

Before you drop to the fracture in the ODST drop pod, pre-select a loadout that best suites your play style. Each Spartan would have these set attributes to stock, starting weapon, armor ability, tactical ability, and Armor mod.

Starting Weapon– pistol, plasma pistol, AR, Plasma Rifle, Mauler, or Spiker.

Armor Ability– jet pack, thruster pack(H5), armor lock, decoy, promethean vision, promethean turret.

Tactical Ability– power drain, bubble shield, regen, flare, tripmine, and motion sensor.

Armor Mod– active camo, overshield, invulnerability, EMP, and munitions drop.

If you didn’t hear, 343i Announced there will be no battle royale, and if you hadn’t realized by now these are just my ideas how to make one work, and by no means have anything to do with 343 or their work.

If anyone has any other ideas, thoughts or input, feel free to hit me up on twitter @SatisJaxon.

Be kind folks, stay fantastic, and keep safe,

SatisJaxon;D

Utopia Bound 7/27/20

This week I’m excited to announce that we at Utopia Bound are driving a force in a healthy direction. It’s well known that healthy eating habits and exercise can battle depression and anxiety. It’s because of this I’m happy to welcome CherkoTTV and EliliGill as the face of Utopia’s health movement.

These two are actually physical education teachers as well as interactive streamers. Once on mixer, now creating content for Twitch. These two are truly inspiring, we can’t wait to see the ways they can help us stay healthy, in body and mind.

On another note of change, a member of the great content team known as JenEricLive, Eric to be specific, has left his job and is currently pursuing a full time graphic design gig! You can find his info through the link above, and commissions are open people!!! You don’t want to miss out on such a creative mind. From immaculate props to beautiful profile art, and tying his better half to bring us the live content as well, you really have to shoot them a follow!

A lot of things are changing in the world right now, and a lot of them for the better, this includes Utopia. We have already announced our Twitter, Merch and Twitch profiles that went live a couple weeks ago, and we’d like to delve a little deeper into what we are doing with each.

Utopia on Twitter:

We thought this would be a really cool tool for a different kind of stream. The Utopia Bound official Twitter handle is a current of going live links and content uploads to YouTube. It makes for a very simple way to navigate nontoxic content across twitch and YouTube combined, as well as the ability to rapidly share content links without having to jump to different creator pages.

Utopia on Twitch:

Here is something original;D not really… As of right now our Twitch channel is just hosting streams, but we are working toward a podcast soon…

Utopia Merch:

All the profit from merch, subs, bits, and/or donations will go directly into Utopia Bound’s community or in support of other small streamers. Be it donations, bits, or giveaways, we plan to leave all income within the name that is Utopia.

Our primary focus is being a reliable source of content. Let’s work together to help others, and make a community to be proud of.

Remember to be kind, stay fantastic, and safe,

SatisJaxon;D

Utopia Bound 7-20-20

So we do not have a lot of announcements as of the last week, but we do have some exciting news to come later this week. A majority of the content creators shared on Utopia Bound are fans of Xbox or Microsoft. Later this week, we will, finally, get to know more about Halo Infinite, as well as the official launch date and price of the much anticipated Xbox Series X. I don’t have much information on either but I am excited for the announcements.

We do have a little info on one of the Selected from Utopia Bound. One of our own made Affiliate on twitch this past week, so let’s give a shout out to Grizzly 1991! This dude is fun, friendly, and engaging, so go give him some love!

That’s all she wrote for now,

This is week two of the first real push for the Utopia Bound community! I can tell you we have been working hard trying to push this group to its limits to best benefit the content creators in house and anyone else who happens by.

First and foremost I want to explain what exactly we want to accomplish. After that, we have several new features activated and a couple of features that are in the works and have yet to be completed.

Utopia Bound is an attempt at providing reliable nontoxic content to people. This content comes in a variety of ways.

Types of Content Creators:

Artists– We have a handful of professional and published illustrators and comic book artists.

Musician– If you ever wanted your very own private beat or piece of music to use on your channel, we have just the guy to introduce you to.

Support– There are many forms of content support here. From advice to tech support, from video editing coaching to discord professional help, from game suggestions to PC build suggestions. We are stocked to help perfect your craft.

Guaranteed Content– This is a generalization of the overall mission but also there is a list of guaranteed nontoxic streamers to watch. Their profiles are small but we have included links to social media as well.

Tools– there are links for a handful of bots utilized by streamers available, with experienced input on efficiency of said tools.

So far we have been stockpiling content creators and services for content creators. What’s different now? We are pushing into a full force. Over the next couple weeks we will be implementing procedures to better advertise our current creators.

Moving Forward:

Twitch Channel- Utilizing our Utopia Bound Channel on Twitch, will allow us to do a couple of things. Firstly we can auto host everyone guaranteed to be non-toxic, but we are also looking into a podcast covering content creation across platforms, gaming, and tech.

Twitter account- The Twitter account is already in full effect. When one of the guaranteed content creators, be it Twitch or YouTube at this point, go live or post a video it automatically tweets it live from the official account.

Merch Page- The merch page was started and there was a conflict with the art so it may be a while before the merch page is live. Any and all income/profits, from the merch store or donations, will be turned directly back into Utopia Bound.

YouTube- YouTube has potential for a community such as this. We can share videos of events, achievements, and even announcements.

Schedules- We also look to adding stream schedules into the profiles on the discord server. Already in the profile is the average rating, most common content, and social media links.

Before we go and because I forgot it in the last write up, we have some announcements! As most of you know, Mixer is shutting down. With that in mind, there were so many Mixer Partners who lost all of their progress and work and had to start over, but with all the experience they have been moving up the ranks quickly. Let’s take a moment to highlight a few people.

CherkoTTV has made affiliate what I’ve heard. Now Cherko wasn’t actually a Mixer Partner, but this guys definitely deserved the title. From a dedicated stream schedule to the levels of dedication to the viewers, he is fun and entertaining to be around, and I for one am glad that he gets to share the same benefits on twitch as the other streamers of his caliber.

JenEricLive is actually a duo, Jen and Eric pulled me in with a Cosplay stream. Their dedication to prop making, and overall characters, it’s no wonder that with so little time on Twitch, they hit affiliate and passed the 100 sub mark! Absolutely incredible!

Lastly on the YouTube front, Electric Spark has numerous videos ready for upload, all pre-streamed content, of the four of these dudes speed running vintage video games. Also on YouTube we are looking forward to the next Video from our friend GoKu DBZ coming soon, so keep an eye out!

To keep track of what’s to come please shoot us a follow here, and on the Utopia Bound Twitter handle, that will be listed below. Expect video updates and going live links for everyone included in the guaranteed streamer section of the discord server.

Utopia Bound 7/6/2020

As of the last few weeks I have been in discussions with the streamers and the admins of Utopia Bound, and I have come to the conclusion that this group definitely has potential and deserves to be public.

There will be a more prevalent drive forward. For this I have the following features to add to Utopia Bound:

-Utopia Bound merch store

-Streamer schedules

-Streamer/Gamer/Nerd talk Podcast

-Announcements for achievements and upcoming events for Utopia’s Selected

As far as implementation, that’s all down to convenience. Schedules and announcements/newsletter should be updated shortly, and the podcast may be a YouTube series, either way expected to start sometime within the next two months.

Lastly any money earned via merch or donation will go directly into Utopia Bound to better and benefit our growing community, be it for tourneys or for random donations to support Nontoxic streamers outside said community.

Myself and several other admins are excited for these advancements and hope to be of some help!

Stop by for help with content. Art, music, tech and game support as well as video editing!

Thanks folks,

Pot, Gaming, and Heroin

I bet you are wondering where I’m going with this. While we will be discussing the above title, this article is dedicated to my streamer and artists brothers and sisters who struggle with depression and anxiety on a daily basis.

Many people look at what I have and they don’t understand why I am at war with depression and anxiety. I have the love of my life, fooled her into marrying me and have three beautiful, and intelligent kids, “So what’s this guy have to be depressed about?” That’s the thing, kids, you don’t get a say in feelings. If you had a choice in your emotions, they would then, in fact, be referred to as options.

It isn’t really necessary for me to get into what makes me, ME, but I’m going to. What I am about to share with you is embarrassing to me, and I am very sensitive about this. No one aside my wife really understands the magnitude of issues, because she has been here with me through all of the “factors.”

To really know me, my name is Jeremy, I am 32 years old and I was raised in a household below poverty level. It was actually my whole drive behind my work ethic, well that and the inconsistency from my parents. My parents weren’t around, actually I spent a lot of time completely alone, which is where I honed my skills as an artist.

My mother and father were never together, at least not within my memory. My father married elsewhere and while I visited I didn’t really get to see him. He spent too much time at work trying to afford the new wife and kids, my step-siblings were actually ok, so that wasn’t terrible, but I also didnt get to live with them. Not at first. No that took an underage at 14, before the custody change.

My life revolved around partying and alcohol when I was still in elementary school. My mother had a hard time holding a job, and would have ppl over to hang out “smoke” and drink. If I’m completely honest, it wasn’t until later I realized what they were smoking, but it explained why she was always shut up in her room. She didn’t want us to know. Now I say us, because I am one of four boys.

My brothers didn’t really live with us. I was quiet and never got in trouble, until the afore mentioned underage, but I didn’t get caught or in trouble often. My brothers on the other hand were kinda heathens. Since she couldn’t handle them full time, they were shipped off to their dads. We didn’t have the same dads. My older bro and the one just under me share a dad, but my youngest has his own as do I. So sometimes she would be shut away from us, but other time I was just shut away. To this day I still struggle to carry a normal conversation with other human beings, but cut me some slack, I haven’t much practice.

Due to the lack of work, and amount of partying, we didn’t get to stay in a house long. Even got moved into a drug dealers house. We moved fairly often, and it was hard to make friends. Not to mention, sometimes it led to bare cupboards. Just how it was.

We had a couple of male “role models” in our lives. The first I can remember was a raging alcoholic. Never hit us boys but he’d beat the crap out of mom from time to time, but having said that, I have flash memories of her getting beat up by my youngest brothers dad too. It wasn’t in common for those two guys to take myself and or my brothers on drug runs. Don’t worry, we never went inside. They’d just leave us in the car for an hour or so. It wasn’t until much later that I realized what that was. Sitting there really wasn’t much different from every other day, I mean I was still, usually, alone, but at least I had something different to look at.

First time I tried alcohol I was 5 years old and I hated it. I didn’t start drinking until I was 12 or 13, which is also the time I started smoking marijuana. I drank a lot, probably because my “step-dads” bought a lot of alcohol, a lot of times for mom, who preferred pot, so us boys would drink hers and the alcoholic would just replace it and no one ever noticed. Even when we’d refill the vodka with water, no one seemed to catch on.

By the time I hit 8th grade I smoked a pack of cigarettes a day, smoked weed every time mom left, and drank bi-weekly, and nobody was the wiser. Of course by eighth grade we were getting drinks from my moms friends. She would act upset about it, but still let it happen. Just a shame really.

My first and only underage was actually cigarettes. An undercover cruiser stopped a few friends and I. We got a court summons, and though we were all busted, apparently I was the one who had to pay. Had a fine and no one was going to pay it for me, I had to get a job, which wasn’t a bad thing really, helped change my characteristics the long haul. That’s how I ended up at dads.

The next four years at my dads wasn’t bad. I wasn’t alone anymore really, I get along well with the step-brother he’s a good dude for sure, he’s probably the biggest reason I am so heavy into gaming so for that I am grateful.

Outside of high school is where things really started to pick up. I have three brothers, over the span of ten years, all three of them ended up on heroin. To this day all three are clean. Two of them struggle, but one is in prison, but only after a botched drug deal and he was violently stabbed almost to death, and my other brother who tends to destroy property, and he found himself in and out of jail as well.

My brother just younger than me, has been clean for around three years and I am very proud. He got married, got custody of his daughter who lived with a sociopath.

My older brother, the one in prison still doesn’t get to see his kids. One who lives a thousand miles away and the other who’s mom and step-dad who just went to jail for child abuse/endangerment/neglect.

My life has been an interesting one, I’m not good with people, but I want to be. I don’t drink, or smoke(anything) anymore. I want to be the opposite of everything I was hurt by. I want to help others, especially those who fight the same battle as I do day to day.

If you feel low, find someone to talk to. I’ll even talk shoot me a message. Take care of yourselves, be considerate and take care of each other.

Remember,

Be kind and stay fantastic,

The Duke Returns!

I know how the title sounds, but we are not talking about the Western legend, John Wayne, no. The launch of the original Xbox back in November of 2001, the first grasp of the Microsoft gaming world was a chunk, to say the least. The first controller was a honking beast of an analog monstrosity, and I loved it. Eventually known as the “Duke” it gained a fan following, enough so that we are seeing the reappearance, reproduced by Hyperkin, two generations later with the Xbox one.

Now this is a fairly late article to be clear, but I finally talked myself into the purchase, and I am so glad I did! As I played the several test games, it was a learning curve to get back into the feel and comfort of that hefty piece of tech, with a sweet throwback animation built into the controller.

The differences between the XBone controller and the Duke is great. From the button layout, though the recent rendition is sporting the bumpers which the original lacked, to the one full pound of extra weight on the Duke.

To be completely honest, the release of the Duke eluded me. I remembered the announcement, but then there was nothing. No more advertising, just a release down the line and I was oblivious to its obtainability. It wasn’t until my long time friend, no my brother in-gaming-arms Lupes, took a break from building some top tier gundams, to flaunt the translucent green Duke. I needed one NOW! So that’s just what I did, ran out, or rather twiddled the ol’ thumbs on over to Amazon to snag me up the beautiful translucent red slab of thumb stick heaven.

While I could only find the black, green, and red, I found an image of available colors from the Microsoft certified Makers of the controller, Hyperkin.

I have never been happier with the controller. So far all of the buttons and thumb sticks are more responsive than my Official Xbox controller. On top of the responsiveness, I have noticed better audio quality from my headset as well. I don’t know why or even if it’s just in my head, but the hype is real. And so far the tech is spectacular. If you were a fan of the Duke, then it’s worth the buy. It would take some time to get used to it, but after about four games of Apex Legends, I’m right back in the game.

remember, friends, to stay safe,

And as always, be kind and stay fantastic,
