December Livestream Schedule

I've mentioned before that I'm trying to get on a decent livestream schedule.  Well, December's a crap month for it, because of the Jingle Jam.  If you don't know what the Jingle Jam is, every year for the month of December, the Yogscast host a massive charity drive with livestreams happening all day. 

In fact, if you're looking for some charities to donate to, and do some Christmas shopping at the same time, check out their Humble Bundle.  This link will not go live until December 1st, but the charities included are as follows:

The Yogscast also work closely with game devs to make this something even more special.  Donations over $35 will also get an advent-style gift packages of games and DLC for the month of December.  This year, the total value of the package is $600.  Every day, you'll get an email with a new set of Steam codes, for you to keep or give away as you choose.  This has been my husband's Christmas gift for the last couple of years, and will be again this year.


 What does this have to do with my livestream schedule?  Well, a lot.  Because my December usually has me glued to the screen watching these streams.  Because of this and a variety of other factors, my usual streams will no longer be at 10am.  I may still do some random 10am streams, but they will not be happening with any regularity. 

Instead, I'll be streaming at 6pm.  I know this is a bit late for people outside the US, but 10am was a weird time for people in the US.  And for me.  And for my husband, who doesn't go to bed until 7am, and is often asleep in the next room.  10am streams will mostly be on days when he's home and awake at that time.  But they will definitely NOT be on the following days:

  • Friday 1st
  • Saturday 2nd
  • Monday 4th
  • Wednesday 6th
  • Friday 8th
  • Sunday 10th
  • Tuesday 12th
  • Wednesday 13th
  • Sunday 17th
  • Monday 18th
  • Tuesday 19th
  • Thursday 21st
On these days, I will be watching a bunch of grown-ass adults drink too much gin and get salty at video games.  Outside of these days, morning streams will depend on my husband's schedule, which is nebulous and in a constant state of flux.

But I'm hoping the 6pm streams let more people come in and participate.  6pm streams may wind up cancelled at the last minute, depending on who the Late Night guest is, and how long Late Night streams run.
