Soooo….. Twitch had a Data Leak… CHANGE YOUR PASSWORDS!

Hey all, Kern here, wondering at the rationality of humanity as once again cyber bullies kick up in hopes of doing… well, who knows what they were after really, I won’t speculate.

Either way, Twitch suffered a massive data breech very recently and it should be heeded. If you do have a Twitch account, and all that general wonderfulness, go change your passwords. Consider this post as me doing my own diligence to put this out as a warning to any of you that do happen to watch live streams or otherwise have a twitch account.

Don’t sit on this, it seems like a pretty massive leak of data. This is the article I read regarding it, and I’d suggest if you want more information, you do the same. I happened to see it earlier this morning.

In case you care for a secondary source, here ya go…

Honestly, stay safe out there on the internet everyone, and yeah… this completely sucks, but welcome to life I suppose… go fix your passwords and warn your friends to do the same.

We’re Finally Back to Streaming!

Hey everyone, it’s Kern here. It’s been a long time, with life really kicking our asses, namely my ass, but we’re finally back to streaming.

We’ve chosen to cut down to two days a week for now to slowly edge back into things. We’ve changed our days up too. The current schedule looks like this:

Tuesdays: 9:00 PM -12:00 AM (GMT)
Thursdays: 9:00 PM – 12:00 AM (GMT)

Last night, we had Kresh playing “Call of Cthulhu” which is a horror game that’s not actually too scary. Over all, the game is just your typical cosmic horror game. I’ve played a little bit of it myself in the past, just not on stream. Anyway, last night, Kresh played through chapters 1-7, and if you want to check it out, you can do that on our Twitch channel. https://www.twitch.tv/the_demented_ferrets

Also, you know, follow us for more gameplay fun, there will be plenty of it, I’m sure…

Status of the Blog:

So, yeah, as you can very likely guess, just by looking around posts have been just non-existence. Yeah, like I said, life kicked us in the ass hardcore. I’m working on posts, slowly and surely… reviews and opinion pieces mostly, I’m just taking my dear sweet time. I’ll have something out for you guys soon enough. I’m just having problems in the grand scheme of writing…

It happens sometimes, as my few posts about writers block often nod too, although, usually those blogs have to do with fan fiction, you get the idea. It happens, finding the right words can be difficult to properly convey my thoughts. I’m working on it, that’s all I can say…

I’m doing the best I can, we’ll get back into the swing of things… it just might take some time. This year has been rough, but you know, best thing anyone can do about that is keep on going… honestly, I am sooooo ready for this year to be over, but it is what it is.

Anyway, I’ll see you guys soon enough, I guess.

Hey, Kern Here. Just A Life Update, and Writing Content Update!

Hey all, long time no see. Yeah, it’s been a bit, I won’t lie. I wanted to do a brief update and let you all know why there was a lapse in content, and why (hopefully) that’s going to remedy itself soon.

Let me start with the obligatory apology, which of course, is more heartfelt than words on the screen could probably adequately describe. If I sound bitter, it’s because I am a little bit. I shouldn’t have needed to make this post in the first place, shouldn’t need to showcase just what an idiot I can be at time, and I feel like I can’t possibly say anything that really satisfies. I’m more than a little frustrated at myself, so “I’m sorry” really doesn’t feel like enough.

First of all, I’m sorry for the lack of content recently. Truly I am, with my mother’s health acting up as it has, and general life sucking all around, you probably aren’t too thrilled about that.

I’m not either, trust me. I won’t make excuses and say that this absence and lack of written content was entirely out of my hands. There were times I did have time to write, only to sit at a blank white screen and scowl at it. Stress being what it is, and all.

My mother’s blood count is still all over the place. She’s at the emergency room right now in fact, receiving three units of blood. She’s going in on august 3rd for surgery, so yes, my family and I are being as proactive as we can about this… however, to say this doesn’t cause some level of anxiety would be a bold faced lie…. I’ve been exhausted for a long time emotionally, so self-care became important, and the meant stepping away from content for a while.

There were a lot of times I sat down to write only to find myself unsatisfied with the content I had been writing too. I don’t want to produce total crap, but recently it felt like it has been total crap insofar as my drafts are concerned. I don’t want to release complete and total garbage that wouldn’t be enjoyed, and I felt like that would be the way it ended up.

All of that to say, yeah things haven’t been great, my head was up my ass a bit, writers block hit hard, and all-in-all I just wasn’t at my best. That’s the root cause, that’s the reason, I’ll leave it up to you if that’s valid enough or not…

You know, they say a writer is their own worst critic, and I think that’s true. I also think it’s true that sometimes the content we should feel proud of falls short of the mark not because it’s bad content. Far from it, but rather it seems to miss a spark that you just feel isn’t there.

That’s how a lot of my drafts have felt for me. It’s that feeling if dissatisfaction that ultimately clouds and muddies up the mind. Now, I’m a huge fan of what I like to call the “write and toss” and if you read my fan fiction, you’ll know that I often just sort of go with that method because it doesn’t allow you to dwell upon it.

It’s not the same for anime and gaming reviews though, where it is absolutely paramount to consider the finer details of the series and link of the bigger picture. I can’t just write and toss that, but I’ve finally found that spark again. The ebb and flow of writing being what it is, I can tell you without a shadow of a doubt that I’ve finally written a few pieces of content I can be proud of, so get ready for that.

In any case, there it is… my own stress and idiocy on full display. I’m sorry, and that’s what it all comes down to. Expect content in the following days, it’s already scheduled, so it’ll go out. See you there.

April Update Post

Hello everyone, Kern here. Some brief life updates before we get into the meat of the post. If you’ve been reading the blog, or watching the live streams, you may have heard me talking about my mother’s health, or lack of it.

My mother is doing a little better, and she is now home from the hospital. We still have a long way to go, though.

Blog content will continue as of April 5th on it’s usual days. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. As promised, new content is coming this month in April. Here’s what you can expect…

New YouTube Content:

Starting April 5th, new content will be released on our YouTube channel. This will include anime related reviews, and RWBY related review and analysis content. The bulk of this content will be short form at first, and known as “Kern’s Collections”.

As promised, patrons will receive these videos a day early.

These videos are scripted and edited by me (Kernook) and edited by our artist (Ruka). Sorry again that it’s taken so long to get these out, but things have just been difficult to do with my mom previously being so ill, and the fact that all of us ferrets can’t yet afford to make this a full time job. 

We’re low budget. that’s a fact. In order to get the equipment for proper audio recordings, I need a studio quality microphone, and I’ll be purchasing that when funds allow. I also need to get a few sound dampening squares to hang on the wall.

Streaming Content:

This has not changed. We will still do streams every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday at the usual times when life life permits. I will also stream on off days on occasion as I have been doing when I can.

Final Fantasy VI will be completed in a few more streams, and Final Fantasy XI will be streamed regularly as well as we continue to do missions and progress to end game content. We play on the Nocturnal Souls private server, and will continue to do so.

Other games will be played as we see fit. Yes, I will eventually finish Sonic Adventures DX.

We will not be streaming on Saturday, April 3rd, as that is Easter weekend. It is a holiday for many, and otherwise a busy time. I may do a solo stream, but we shall see. 

Blog:

Content will go out once more April 5th on the normal days which are Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Continuing reviews for anime and gaming content are in the works.

New “Kresh plays” will be added as content permits.

Most importantly as it pertains to the blog, “Kern’s Collections” general scripts and videos will be posted here. 

Needless to say, April comes with a wealth of content across platforms, and we hope to see you there.

Written Content Going Forward

Hey everyone, here’s a cat photo. That’s Sabin, Kernook’s. Got your kitty fix? Good!

It’s time to discuss content you’re going to see on this blog.

I have a lot of information to go over so let’s just jump right into it, shall we?


The Future of the Blog

In truth, in order of priority our Twitch and YouTube channels will be taking center stage. That isn’t to say you won’t find a wealth of content here, because I assure you, you certainly will. There will be blog posts 3 days a week, every week so long as it is feasible to do so.

The blog will update every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday with written content.

Now, some of you may know that we had a free blog with the “.wordpress.com” before this blog came into fruition. That blog was messy and ill-planned, but we needed something. Now, before that blog was repurposed for the sake of ” The Demented Ferrets“, it belonged to me. It was my personal blog for anime and gaming content.

Kreshenne and I needed to change that.

That’s why this blog sits here now. My content needed a fundamental overhaul. This is just an overall better layout, and much more carefully thought out. As you can see, that nasty little mess of a web address has been replaced with a far more fitting one.

Therefore, here we go a nice new clean slate. Content across our platforms will be broken up into several different categories. What you can expect to find in each one will be a little different. So, let’s get into that…


Twitch Content

On our Twitch page we stream all sorts of content. These are genres we are most likely to play. We stream twice weekly.

RPG’s/JRPG’sPuzzlesHorror
Indie PlatformerSimulation
Retro Games
More to come..

As of this post the stream days are:

Tuesdays: 9:00 PM – 12:00 AM (GMT)
Wednesdays: 9:00 PM – 12:00 AM (GMT)
Saturdays: 12:00 PM – 3:00 PM (GMT)

Currently we are discussing adding anther day of streaming to the schedule. When we know the day it will be announced.

YouTube Content

Videos will go up three times a week at 12:00 PM (GMT). The days are Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. You will find a wealth of different types of content as we move forward, so please stay tuned.

Movie Reviews

Written Media

Obviously, for the blog this will carry the bulk of the content you’re going to find. There is plenty to see here, but a few notable topics will be:

Anime Review ScriptsGame Review ScriptsGeneral Demented Ferret Updates
Anime RetrospectivesGaming Retrospectives
Fandom TopicsOpinion PiecesLifestyle
More to come…

Twitter

We have a lot of platforms and content to offer, so please be sure to follow us on Twitter for updates regarding all of them.

Regarding Old Content

Old content will be slowly cleaned up and brought over from the other blog. When it is an old post refreshed and fixed up, you’re going to see this disclaimer at the top of the post:

“Note: This was an old post on the original “The Demented Ferrets” site, and prior to that it belonged to my personal blog. It is being placed here because this is now where it belongs.”

This is for the sake of transparency, so that you know what posts were originally written back in 2019 and 2020. If new content has been added, I’ll be sure to also clarify that in the note.

Final Thoughts

I think that’s about all I have to say for now. Hopefully with all of the links provided you’ll find content to your liking. In tomorrow’s post I’m going to detail the types of written content you’re going to see on this blog going forward. I hope to see you there.

Remember, you can help us by sharing this post with your friends and family too. If you know someone who likes anime and gaming content, be sure to share this with them. Thanks, and with that I’ll leave it off here.
