Phasehacker News for 11/10/16 - Trip to the Cabin and a Very Weird Story.

It's been three weeks since I last written a post on this website. So here I am again!
A few weeks ago I went on vacation to Tennessee to go to a cabin and spend time with my parents. and I had a blast. I went shopping at a Christmas store in Pigeon Forge called "The Incredible Christmas Place" where it's open all year long. It's even more Christmas-y than my mom's friend's house on Thanksgiving. (Don't ask.) and I got a Fluttershy ornament. (Which is not shown, Because I put it in our ornament box.) Because they didn't have a Rainbow Dash one. All they had was Pinkie Pie and Fluttershy. Moving on.
I have a weird story to tell you: When I went on vacation last month, I kind of forgotten about Overwatch and all I focused on was packing up for the trip. But here's the interesting part: Me and my parents were going to Pigeon Forge to go shopping and we were stuck in traffic. I happened to look to my left and there was a truck with a trailer that had the word "TRACER" written on the side of the trailer. and my brain was like "UGH! OVERWATCH! UGH!" and then I suddenly remembered about it. and when I came back from shopping I watched nothing but videos about Overwatch mostly from a YouTube channel called "The Leaderboard" and a few others. and I remember saying to myself. "The first thing that I am going to do when I get home is to play Overwatch." and this was when the Halloween event was going on.

The Story of How I Almost Got a Strike on YouTube.

Vector credit to Uponia on DeviantArt.
Okay, Here's the story. About 10 minutes ago I was trying to upload my announcement video on my "Havocbyte" YouTube channel and I clicked on something and a bunch of videos started to upload including the recent episode of MLP:FiM (Which is copyrighted mind you!) among other things including the unfinished version of The Fall of Canterlot High episode 3! So I started to cancel the uploads rather quickly because I didn't want to get a strike and I started over and I uploaded the video as usual. And that's the story of how I saved my YouTube channel from being terminated! The end. And this is a true story by the way. Not one of those "clickbait" articles.

Phasehacker News for 10/11/16 - Overwatch, Legend of Everfree, The Hurricane and more!

It's been at least two weeks since I last posted on this website. Because I had a lot of things happen to me within the past couple of weeks.
I got Overwatch last month and I am really enjoying it. (And yes I still play Battleborn.) My personal favorite characters are Tracer and Mei. and my favorite maps are Watchpoint: Gibraltar, Volskaya Industries and Lijang Tower.
I also was finally able to watch the latest Equestria Girls movie: "The Legend of Everfree!" and I LOVED IT! I wish I could tell you my favorite part, But that would be considered a spoiler to those who haven't seen the movie yet.
There was also a hurricane that came through and don't worry, I'm still alive. But I have A LOT of cleaning up to do. and I lost power for two days, So I had to sleep in the dark with my headlamp on my table.
But, good news! The power came back on yesterday! Thank you out of state power company!

Another weird dream that I had

Remember all the way back in January where I wrote a post talking about a weird dream that I had, Where I was dressed up as a character from Borderlands inside of someone's RV at an amusement park? Well I had another weird dream, This time it's Overwatch related.
First off, The dream starts where I'm playing Heroes of the Storm on my computer as Tracer. and here is the weird part: I left to go do something for about 5 minutes and I left the game running. and when I came back, Tracer started to meow. That's when I woke up at around midnight to my cat Andromeda. She wanted to go out. So I let her out of my room and I went back to sleep.
And another thing is that I used to dream about the Equestria Girls movies. Now since I'm playing HotS and watching videos about Overwatch, I'm now dreaming about Tracer for some strange reason.
And if you think that dream was weird. Check out this post that I made on the EQD forums. Which you can check out right here

The Reason Why I Watch MLP:FiM and EQG

The reason why I watch FiM and EQG is: Not because I am a Pegasister, It's because I have been dealing with anger issues throughout my childhood. I had an awesome childhood. But sometimes I felt emotional and I didn't feel like doing much of anything. So I started to watch MLP:FiM because I was curious about it, and now I'm taking it seriously.
The character 'Sunset Shimmer' is very inspiring. Because she had to learn how to control her emotions. (Just like me.) (Except I did not turn into a raging she-demon.) and both the show and the movies make me happy. Like around the time when the subfloor in my kitchen was being replaced, The episode: "The Saddle Row Review" had premiered and how Rarity behaved in the episode when she was starting to become stressed, Reminded me of my mom when she became stressed about the kitchen.
I highly recommend this show to anyone who was emotional issues or if want a good animated series with excellent writing, a cast of characters that you can relate to, and catchy songs that can get stuck in your head easily.

Alexa Drove Me Crazy!

So I was over at friend's house eating some lunch at the kitchen table when all of sudden their Amazon Echo unit turned on when someone in the room said it's name. And me, my mom and my friends were saying things like: "Alexa, Play Turn Down for What" and I kept saying "Alexa, Be quiet." or "Alexa, Stop!". and the music kept playing until my mom stopped her.
I have a lot of crazy stories about Artificial Intelligence's. Mostly from the times where I would talk to Siri on the iPhone at a friend's house or Cortana on my dad's laptop.
*yawns* I am so tired right now. and tomorrow is my birthday! :D

I Have Returned...

It's been over a month since I last posted a post on this blog. But now I'm back!
Anyways, Let's get onto what I have been doing for the couple of days. I helped out my friends with their homework, Fixed a laptop for a client that had a malware problem. :O and some other things. And last night I was watching a discussion panel from a convention that had Amy Keating Rogers (One of the writers of MLP:FiM.) and Rebecca Shoichet (The voice of Sunset Shimmer.) and there were fans that asked questions to them. and this one guy asked the voice of Sunset Shimmer about how she was approached for the role in the Equestria Girls movies and how she felt about singing a duet with herself and things like that.
The video was over an hour long and I was 42 minutes into the video before I turned it off and went to bed.
Here is the link to it in case if you're curious And speaking of Sunset Shimmer:
I found this at my local Walmart this morning. I did a review of it on my YouTube which you can check out right here.

I have officially cut cable in my house and I got faster Internet (Thanks to Comcast Business!) I got a Chromecast and my parents got one of those Roku boxes. For streaming movies and TV shows on Amazon Prime, Hulu and Sling! (I wish that Sling had Discovery Family so I can watch the second half of Season 6 of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.)
Anyways, Did you already cut cable/satellite in your house? And which streaming device did you buy? Feel free to leave a comment down below. Or vote on the poll!
Moving on... This month marks the one year anniversary of the launch of one of my favorite mobile games: Angry Birds 2! (And the launch of Windows 10 and the premiere of Disney's Descendants. ETC. ETC.) Anyways, Rovio is hosting a contest on their official Facebook page for a change to win two Silver plushes. (One for you and one for your friend.) I already entered. (Finger crossed. I HOPE I WIN!)
Insert overused MLP:FiM meme here.
And that concludes this post for today.

Remember that post that I made about three weeks ago talking about a glitch in Ubuntu 16.04 LTS that wouldn't you install third-party Debian packages? Well, Canonical (The company that made Ubuntu.) released an update long after I made that post. And now I can enjoy Google Chrome! :D Yay! No more Firefox! :P

Phasehacker News and Discussions for May 20th 2016 - TABM is Out!, Friendship Games, and more!

Greetings fellow Phasehacker readers. Today is Friday May 20th 2016. and The Angry Birds Movie has just came out worldwide! I don't know how good it is, But I will see it this Sunday! :D
And now let's talk about a movie that I watched on TV two weeks ago. "My Little Pony: Equestria Girls The Friendship Games" or MLP:EG TFG the abbreviated version. And I loved it! My favorite songs in the movie are The Theme Song and Unleash The Magic which sounds like something out of a Disney Movie. Let's just say that I loved it so much, That I recreated the intro in Source Filmmaker.
The Original
The SFM Version
Everything is the same, Except for the background and Sunset's outfit.
And here are my thoughts about the movie:
It starts off slow then it eventually progresses. My favorite scene has to be the end. *Spoiler Alert!* If you like this article, Make sure to leave a +1 and a comment. (If you want.)
If you don't like it, Well...

Ubuntu 16.04 LTS Xenial Xerus Does Not Let You Install Google Chrome! :(

Ever since Ubuntu 16.04 was released. Some people (Such as myself) haven't been able to install certain .deb packages like Steam and Google Chrome on the Software Center because of a major glitch. Other .deb packages like "Unity Tweak Tool" work just fine. But why is that? Kind of a shame really. Canonical, If you're reading this. I want you to fix this glitch, Because I'm tired of using Mozilla Firefox. I WANT GOOGLE CHROME!!!!!! :(
