I can finally stream from ps4

After almost three years of streaming on Twitch I can finally play games on my Playstation 4 Pro and stream it! It’s about damn time! I purchased the Elgato HD60 S which is a so called capture device that allows me to. I am a big noob when it comes to certain tech stuff and I had to do my research on how to stream though my PC while playing on my PS4. But it is actually quite simple.

First and foremost I am a streamer who builds houses in The Sims 4, which I currently do twice a week. And I have a variety day where I stream another game. I have played many other games on Twitch, but since my computer isn’t the strongest I often experience lots of lag, especially when a particular game is heavy in graphics and size.

So, this coming Friday I will stream the first game from my Playstation which will be Red Dead Redemption 2. I am very excited about it.

Follow me on Twitch if you aren’t already! I currently stream every Monday, Tuesday and Friday (variety day).

Happy New Year

Wow, this is the first post of 2021! Happy New Year, everyone! The first couple of days in the new year I have been doing nothing but chillin’. I canceled my stream on New Year’s Day, because I felt like I needed a little break, so that’s what I did. New Year’s Eve was chill for me as well. I have been talking to my online friends a lot, killing time and just do whatever.

New Year’s Eve must have been so different for everyone on this planet. And it’s safe to say that 2020 sucked big time. I hope in the new year we get to see things change for the best. I am over this whole pandemic! I want everything to go back to normal. But I feel it will take a while before the world is completely recovered and at ease. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.

So, the past couple of days I have been unproductive. I haven’t recorded any videos yet for my YouTube channel. I felt rather uninspired, which I hope will change soon. Gotta get my groove back, you know what I mean? I have been playing a lot of Grand Theft Auto V on my Playstation 4 Pro, doing missions and stuff. Love the game. I have the game on my PC as well and I used to stream it a couple of times on Twitch. I am pleased that I am further with the game than when I was playing it on my PC. I planned to play some more today, but I was forcing myself to take a little break from it, so I finally started watching season one of RuPaul’s Drag Race UK!

Tomorrow I will start getting back to my regular streaming schedule again, my first stream in the new year. We’ll probably build in The Sims 4 again, but I don’t know yet what to build. I’ll just make up something quickly before I go live. Or find some inspiration online, that helps too. So, I hope to catch you all when I am live!

But, yeah! I hope everyone had a great start of the new year. And I really hope that the new year will give a lot of people something better, for everyone. All I can say is that I will send each and everyone of you positive vibes. And I am reminding you that we’re all in this together. Try to have a positive mindset, okay?

I don’t have any New Year’s Resolution. I don’t do that. People often have resolutions for when it’s a new year, but not me. Why wait and change something when it’s a new year, while you have the chance to make changes before a new year starts? It never really makes sense to me.

Enough rambling for now! Again, Happy New Year! Be good and be kind!

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas, everyone! Or whatever it is that you celebrate this year. For me this was another Christmas of being with just me, myself and I. On Christmas Eve I was chillin’ and having some quiet time, watching shows and eating a nice dinner. When I did my grocery shopping last Wednesday I got some turkey filet that I had for dinner on Christmas Eve, and a pork roulade for Christmas Day, all marinated and oven-ready. And I air-fried some French fries as well. It was delicious.

Normally I stream on Fridays, but since it’s Christmas Day I decided to cancel stream and just relax and have some needed ‘me’ time.

Normally when it’s the holidays I always find my self wallowing in my own misery, for being alone and not having anyone around. We always get that mindset pushed to us to be together with people and be all joyful and happy. But this year it’s been alright. I am not feeling that sad. I mean I do have some feelings inside of wishing I wasn’t alone, but I am dealing with this better than I used to. Glorious!

Anyway, I have been obsessed with this show called ‘Younger’ and I have been binging it back to back while lying on my couch like a big old potato. I just started season 6 and I am almost all caught up with the show. I can highly recommend ‘Younger’. It’s such a fun and heartwarming show, I am sure you will love it.And Nico Tortorella is in it and he’s such a babe! Oh my goodness! Drooling!

I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I know this year has been hard for everyone and even Christmas may be different with all the social distancing, lockdown and being in quarantine. But I hope you all made the best of it. We’re all in this chaos together. Let’s hope next year will be better!

Here are some selfies I took a few days ago. I was in a selfie kind of mood. I even polished my nails! Fierce, isn’t it? Meh, anyway, Merry Christmas! I am sending you all lots of love and prosperity!

Spoiling myself for Christmas

So, this year has been total crap for me and millions of other people around the world. And since this year is coming to an end why not treat and spoil myself for Christmas, right? I have been on Santa’s list of good boys. And because I have been a good boy I got two awesome things for Christmas. I got a new Apple Watch SE and a PlayStation 4 Pro! A big YAY for me! Something I love and that I can enjoy a lot.

I actually had my mind set for a PlayStation 5 but they are all sold out everywhere, mostly by annoying scalpers that are out there using bots to buy PlayStations online in bulk and reselling it for triple the amount. So, after a lot of thinking I decided to downgrade to PS4 Pro. And that’s that! I treated myself and I love it!

Early Christmas Spirit

A lot of people look down on others who set up their Christmas tree early. But to be honest, I don’t care what they think. Especially this year, with COVID-19 and all the chaos in this world this year, it’s alright to boost up your spirit with some joy, right? Joy and cozy is where it’s at for me, even though I spent Christmas all alone. The days are shorter and the nights are longer. So this year, like the previous couple of years, I have set up and decorated my Christmas tree!

My tree is not the biggest. It is 180cm tall and each year I decorate the tree with silver and purple balls and tinsel. It makes my apartment look really cozy! Last month the clock went back one hour, so that means it’s dark here at 5pm. And I am living for it! Light my tree and lit candles. It’s heavenly!

Have you already set up your tree? And what are your thoughts of people being so damn early with decorating?

Licking my own balls

Nothing too exciting has happened since my last blog post. Except for the fact that I have been very productive with creating videos for my YouTube channel. Doing The Sims 4 speed builds and right now a let’s play as well. It’s been a lot of fun so far. And I have been streaming a lot on Twitch as well. But other than that things have been very mellow.

Earlier this month I was very excited to finally see the season finale of The Walking Dead. We have been waiting for a long time for that and the episode did not disappoint! It was a kick-ass episode. I won’t give out any spoilers, just that it was a kick-ass episode! I am still bummed out that the series will end after season 11. I’ll miss my Daryl! Also, the spin-off of The Walking Dead called World Beyond started. I watched the first two episodes and I am really digging it! I love the concept and storyline. Fear The Walking Dead will start in a few days as well, so more excitement to come. I could wait until the whole new season has ended, so I can binge, but I can’t.

Another show that I did binge is Ratched, on Netflix. Loved it! Not only because Sarah Paulson is in it, but also the whole aesthetic the show has. It takes place in the 1940’s, Loved the colors and 40’s fashion! It was a great show.

And I have been watching some old episodes of Friends as well. I always watch Friends when I have dinner. The other day I watched the series finale, which I haven’t seen in years! Maybe even over a decade! I think I only saw it twice. Because the finale is just too sad for me. I don’t know if there are any other Friends fanatics out there who feel the same. So, I watched the finale again and yes, I had to cry! Ugh, I am such a sensitive bean. Friends will always be one of my favorite shows, ever!

The weather here is gloriously cold. Lots of rain we are having! Which I don’t mind. I only mind it if I have to go out to buy groceries. If not then it’s nice to stay in when it pours! Wearing sweats, lounging on your couch watching shows, or just chill in front of your computer and do some Simming. At the end of the month the clock will go back one hour, which I don’t mind either. It will get darker sooner and I just love it! Turn on the heater, light some candles and stuff. Is there anyone else who enjoys it? And soon I can put out my Christmas tree and decorate, which will make it even more cozy! Who’s ready for it?

Okay, something else… I purchased one t-shirt from my merchandise, the current logo I use on my Twitch channel and on my YouTube channel. Is buying and wearing your own merch like licking your own balls? If that’s the case then I am totally licking them! My merch is going through StreamLabs and I have purchased merch before from another streamer. I was curious how my merch looks like in real life, so I purchased it and I am wearing right now as I am typing this blog post! Of course I had to take a selfie, you know what I mean?

Do not mind my messy “celebrity on a day-off” hair! It’s Sunday and I couldn’t be bothered. You know how it is.

Anyway, I don’t have anything else to talk about. Thank you if you read this blog post in its entirety. You are loved. I wish you all a great rest of your Sunday!

Leander Madonna

My best Madonna experience

Today marks the 16th anniversary of my very special Madonna concert experience that I will never, ever, forget! It was a moment that would have been a dream come true for any die-hard Madonna fan! Back in 2004 Madonna went on tour again with her Re-Invention Tour and after 14 years since her last visit here the one and only Queen of Pop came back to The Netherlands for two sold out concerts at the Gelredome in Arnhem! The last time Madonna came here was in 1990 with the Blond Ambition World Tour, which was my very first Madonna concert that I went to at the Feyenoord Stadium in Rotterdam. I just turned 10 years old when I went to see her then. For her next tours, The Girlie Show Tour (1993) and the Drowned World Tour (2001), she skipped The Netherlands and I was unable to travel abroad to see those tours. I was really bummed out about that. So in early 2004 when the Re-Invention Tour was announced, and two dates were planned in The Netherlands, I managed to get, not only tickets for the shows here in The Netherlands, but also tickets for one show in London and one in Paris! So a total of four shows! The first show I went to of the tour was at Earl’s Court in London, UK, on August 18. The second show I went to was at Bercy in Paris, France, on September 2nd. And the final two shows I went to were here in my home country, at the Gelredome in Arnhem on September 8 and 9.

The last show here was a very special one for me. My dear friend Gisela won special VIP tickets through MTV for the final date at Gelredome. And they were tickets for the so called ‘dance pit’, a special area within the stage! The stage was setup with two pits on the left and right, where a limited amount of people could stand. And you could only get those special tickets through various radio and online giveaways! I was freaking out when my friend won those tickets and ofcourse I was the only person she considered to take with her! I screamed when she told me the exciting news!

That week it was totally Madonna mania for me! Going to two shows in a row! The first show here was amazing! I was there with a few of my former co-workers and Madonna admirers. We had regular floor tickets and were very close to the stage, we all had a blast.

Then it was time for my last show of the tour! And what a way to end my Re-Invention Tour experience! We all got into the venue through a different entrance. All of us lucky winners got special wrist bands and we were all escorted inside by a tour manager, passing crew members and tech people behind the the stage, to one of the special pits on the right side, which was within the actual stage! I couldn’t believe it! It was still hours before the show started and there I was standing within the stage! We were all told that everyone in the dance pit would be a part of the show and that we all have to get super hyped and excited when the show starts! I mean, no problem! I was super hyped for days already!

To make a long story short, it was the best Madonna experience I ever had! For two hours long Madonna was only a few feet away from me. And being in one of the dance pits all the lights on stage was shining on everyone in there. During American Life she kneeled in front of me and I actually touched her knee! I fucking touched Madonna’s knee! And during Like A Prayer she freakin’ high fived me! Somebody fucking pinch me! What a way to end my own little Re-Invention Tour. It was unbelievable! And to think it’s been 16 years ago today! It’s crazy! I will never, ever, forget it! I will cherish it forever!

Here are some pictures that I found on the Internet of that special night. I have saved them on different hard drives for that long! I wish I had better quality pictures, but these were the only ones that I came across. I have circled myself in them, so you can see how close I was to my number one idol!

I doubt there’s anyone out there who has better pictures of that night. But if there is anyone who was also there on September 9 of 2004, who can provide better pictures, please drop me a line! I was in the dance pit on the right side of the stage.

So, til this day I have seen Madonna in concert 10 times!  My first ever concert was the Blond Ambition Tour in 1990, when I was just 10 years old. Four shows of The Re-Invention Tour in 2004, in London, Paris and the two shows here in The Netherlands. The Confessions Tour in 2006 in Amsterdam. The Sticky & Sweet Tour in Amsterdam in 2008 and in Werchter, Belgium in 2009. The MDNA Tour in Amsterdam in 2012. And the last tour I saw was the Rebel Heart Tour in Amsterdam in 2015. Unfortunately I was unable to go to any of the Madame X shows, which was a pity. I hope Madonna will go on tour again and visit The Netherlands again. Because I will be there, for sure! If she’s not coming back here then I have to try and see her show abroad. But, we’ll see when the time comes!
