  1. September: Flyprdu Well howdy there. Brandykins, Stream Team Captain and what not. It's time for another Streamer Showcase! And for the month of September, meet Flyprdu, located at http://www.twitch.tv/flyprdu! How long have you been streaming?: Since March 2015 How did you find the AJSA?: After the Mass Effect 3 ending, I was heartbroken and upset and looking for answers. The Angry Joe Show was a key to my online support group. Fast forward 4 years later, I was flying a trip from Austin, TX when I recognized two passengers on my plane -- Angry Joe and Other Joe! I’ve had A-list celebrities onboard before, but never gamers and YouTubers that I could relate to. I lost it. I ran to baggage claim to introduce myself and the rest is history. Shortly after that encounter, I began to get involved with the local Twitch San Francisco meetup (now Bay Area Live.) AJSA Commander, Tons0fun, was the coordinator of the event and the community. So between those two connections I was welcomed into the AJSA. It really is a small world. How did you become a member of the AJSA Stream Team?: Twitch is all about community. It’s a tight-knit group that most people in the world have never heard of. But for those who do know about Twitch, it’s a big part of their lives. And that’s how it was for me. I began to visit other members of the stream team. Watched their shows, encouraged them in chat. I built connections with the streamers. The AJSA Stream Team is a really diverse team. We have people from all over the world and all walks of life. It was a fun time getting to know everyone. I also worked on improving my own stream. I took the lessons I learned from watching streamers like Brandykins1982 and Angerbeard and applied them to my own shows. And after several months, I was invited by Dr_Evil_2 and Tons0fun to join the stream team. What’s your style of streaming? What types of games do you typically like to play/stream?: Streaming for me is all about chat interaction and community. I’ve always appreciated streamers who were good multi-taskers, who can keep up and interact with chat while playing a game. So I’ve tried to model my show in that style.I’m primarily a Flight Simulator streamer. It’s a niche community in the world of Twitch. It’s medium-sized, but the viewers there are committed and obsessed with the game. Flight sim is a game where you could invest hundreds of hours and hundreds of dollars in DLC and still have only scratched the surface. It takes a special kind of gamer to be a flight simmer. Why flight sim? Two reasons: I love flying. I’ve always had a passion for it since I was a kid. And the other reason is that I’m an airline pilot in real life. The hook for my channel that is that I’m a “real airline pilot performing real procedures” It seems to attract a crowd. What is your favorite game, the game that you always end up going back to?: The game that I consider my ultimate favorite is Mass Effect 2. Why? It’s a masterpiece. It’s one of the few games I can settle in and escape and explore. Unfortunately, I don’t go back to it often because it brings up the sadness of Mass Effect 3. But my memories of experiencing that game for the first time will be something that I’ll treasure forever. What clip, or highlight, best sums you up as a streamer?: It’s always a party on my channel. Flight simulators can be fun! -- https://clips.twitch.tv/BumblingDepressedNuggetsPeanutButterJellyTime I try to capture fun IRL stuff too -- https://clips.twitch.tv/BoredAmazonianCurryFailFish And then there’s this -- https://www.twitch.tv/videos/56209674 Whereabouts can people find you on Twitter, Youtube, etc.?: Twitter - www.twitter.com/flyprdu Discord- My Server - https://discord.gg/DfCsKvc My Flight Sim Group - https://discord.gg/5pftq3w Any parting words?: The last 2 years have changed my life in very real and unexpected ways. These communities, the AJSA and Twitch, have welcomed me into a world filled with people from all walks of life, but who still come together as friends with common interests. I’m really thankful to be part of this community and it’s been a pleasure growing my channel, meeting new faces, and having new adventures. The Angry Joe Show Army has been such a positive experience in my life, and you guys will always have my gratitude. Also, if you’re going to TwitchCon in October or PAX South in January 2018, look me up! We’ll hang out!
  2. August: Grimno My apologies for not getting this up on Monday like I had planned; I’ve been having trouble with my internet. But never fear! This is the second of the AJSA Stream Team Streamer Showcases, and the featured streamer for the month of August is Grimno! Catch him on http://www.twitch.tv/grimno and Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/grimno! How long have you been streaming?: I’m honestly not sure. I know I only really started taking it “seriously” in the last two years but I had my Twitch account active beforehand. How did you find the AJSA?: So long ago I wanted to, and I kid you not, buy the game Mindjack for the Xbox 360. The way the PVP was mentioned made me think “Hey! In a way, this could be like Dark Souls!” Yes, you can laugh now. However, I was on the fence about it and started Youtube searching videos about it to get an idea of how it worked and I ended up coming across Joe’s review of it, and after seeing how bad it was I completely 180’d on buying it. To this day, if I ever have the chance to speak to Joe, I would thank him for saving me the money from buying that game. How did you become a member of the AJSA Stream Team? I applied! I saw there were streamers and I thought “I can do that!” And voila. What’s your style of streaming? What types of games do you typically like to play/stream?: I would say my style is more improv but I can’t take things seriously. Like, I always want to joke, crack puns, think of what the guy I just shot was thinking, tell stories and such. I could never see a sad moment and really be sad, I’m always thinking of some dumb joke based on the situation or I’m very sarcastic. As for the games I play? Anything my PC can run honestly. MMO’s, FPS, RPGs, Platformers, Puzzles. I’ve never been a fan of racing games ever since Burnout sorta fell off the map, and I don’t really play sports games. I tend to follow the belief “Did you play one football game? Then you have played every football game that came before and will come after. It’s football. It doesn’t exactly change. I’m not going to pop in Madden 19 and be all like, Oh snap it’s football but it’s also at the D-Day Invasion?!? Allied invasion advancing 3rd and 9th!” What is your favorite game, the game that you always end up going back to--and why?: My favorite game is Dead Space. I loved the attention to detail, I loved the setting, the creatures the gameplay. I loved Dead Space 1, 2 and yes I even liked 3. People complain it wasn’t scary but come on! Isaac beat the Necromorphs TWICE now, what does he have to be scared about?! He is Bruce Willis now. Though the game I keep going back to is Warframe. It just keeps getting better! Like, for a free-to-play game it has honestly gone above and beyond what you’d expect. And now they got that open world area coming out like something out of Destiny! What the heck man! What the heck! What clip, or highlight, best sums you up as a streamer?: I’ve set my setup a bit better since then but I feel this clip does sum it up a bit. Any parting words?: So get this, Beanees and Weenies only come in 7.5 ounce cans. No brand has a regular soup sized 15.5 Oz can of it for sell. VanCamps apparently did, but if you check Wal-Mart, the only site that hints it existed it says “This Item is No Longer Available”. But there are no reviews of the product, no customer recommendations, no real info hinting at when it was even available. However, the brother product (Think Mustard to its Ketchup), Pork and Beans don’t come in 7.5 ounce cans. Instead, they have the regular sized 15.5 ounce cans, but also go all the way up to, I kid you not, 7 Pound 2 Ounce cans. That is 114 Ounces of Pork and Beans. Why?! Why do Beenie and Weenies not come in regular sized cans at the minimum when Pork and Beans over there can feed an entire football team?!? AT D-DAY!!

  5. You come in here spouting Shakespeare; as someone working on her masters in English, that gives you brownie points in my book. Welcome to the Angry Army!
  6. I ALSO forgot to add if you all have any questions for me or regarding me, lay them on me. Unless your question is "What is the meaning of life?" Because the answer is only 42 and I can't tell you otherwise.
  7. Ha ha ha. You hush, Dan.
  8. Thank you to you all! If you told me two years ago I'd be on the Stream Team, the Stream Team captain, AND an AJSA Commander to boot I would have told you all you were nuts.
  9. I cannot BELIEVE it's been two years since I've joined the Angry Joe Show Army forums, and two years, as of August 11th, since I became a member of the AJSA Stream Team! I applied and Ravenfist89 and Tons0Fun invited me to be a member, and...it's been such a wild and exciting ride, and I've enjoyed every minute of it. To be part of a group of amazing people and to be able to stream with people who make me laugh and who I have a good time playing games with--it's the best times and the best fun in the world. So, you may be wondering (again or for the first time), "Who the heck is this weird person?" Well, I am Brandy, or Brandykins, whatever you want to call me! I just recently became promoted to the AJSA Commander because my name was randomly pulled out of a hat and I do jobs good. The REAL story is that I am the AJSA Stream Team Captain. I'm the one you see post the bimonthly Stream Team Articles, and I'm the one who keeps the Stream Team organized and herds up all the Stream Team members with my Lasso of Whatever. And just recently I was asked to be an AJSA Commander because...yeah. I do jobs good! I also consider myself the least angry member because I yell, but not a whole lot? I guess? Yes. Hello to you all, again or for the first time. It's great to meetcha.
  10. Stream Team News #7, y'all! http://angryjoeshow.com/ajsa/home/articles/frontpage/stream-team-news-7-r907/
  11. Stream Team News #7

    Hellooooo, everyone! So here is the latest in Stream Team news, you lovely wonderful members of the Angry Joe Show Army. BoogerandSqueeks, as you may or may not know, are the newest members of the AJSA Stream Team! They are also now Twitch Affiliates! Congrats to the two of them on both counts! Go toss them a follow on http://www.twitch.tv/boogerandsqueeks and show them some AJSA love! VERY late notice on this, but there will be a GTA V stream tomorrow with The_Tons0Fun and other members of the AJSA stream team, live on Twitch at 1 PM Central Daylight Time! Check it out at http://www.twitch.tv/the_tons0fun ! Another reminder of how to apply for the AJSA Stream Team: In lieu of an application, please, when you stream, join the Angry Joe Show Army community on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/communities/angryjoeshowarmy. Everyone on the Stream Team keeps a close eye on who streams in the AJSA Twitch Community, and we will contact you if we decide you are a good fit for the Stream Team! If you have ANY questions about this, please contact me, Brandykins1982, on either Twitter or the AJSA Discord. Last, but not least, we want your clips! AJSA members, as you watch your favorite streamers, clip them if you see them do something silly, weird...if you see them crash their car in-game fifty million times...the sky’s the limit! Clip those moments and send the links to our main video man, Jaysons_Rage! See you in two weeks with the next Stream Team news (the Streamer Showcase!)
  12. July: Torozor The featured AJSA Stream Team member for the month of July is Torozor. You can find his Twitch channel at http://www.twitch.tv/torozor and his Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/torozor and in his own words: "Don't forget to leave a like and why not follow my Twitch channel and Twitter at the same time." How long have you been streaming?: I've been streaming for two years. How did you find the AJSA community?: I can't really remember, but I think it was one of AJ's videos about the relaunch of the AJSA. After checking out the forums, I decided to take part in the weekly events of Planetside 2. How did you become a member of the AJSA Stream Team?: I first started streaming with a bunch of other lads but that failed after a couple of weeks. Then, while watching Tons0Fun's stream, I noticed an AJSA Gaming group, so I did some research on the forums and found a section to send in an application to join the team. What's your style of streaming? What types of games do you typically like to play/stream?: I am the most Mediocre Video Gamer. The games I tend to play--anything from FPS, RPGs, Strategy, Horror (when I have the balls!), to Action/Adventure. What is your favorite game--that one game you always end up going back to--and why?: Well, a guilty pleasure of mine would have to be Football Manager 2016. Sometimes, I love playing it, and then suddenly it turns upside down and I hate everything about it? Last, but not least, what clips/highlights best sums you up as a streamer?: Don't trust me with a 'nade, or a car.
  13. This is where I will keep the featured streamers blurbs from the AJSA Stream Team streamers showcase, for all of us to look back on and enjoy!
