Clover

Yakuza, Giant Boobs, And 100 Days of Streaming

It's been a long streak of hot summer days here at the o'l BoxInACorner tree house. Time to get you lovely folks updated with what's been going on with us and some information you may find interesting. Let's get started with my most beloved gaming series that ironically brings in the least amount of attention - Yakuza.

For those very, very few brave souls that followed me on Youtube for my Yakuza play-throughs - let me say from the bottom of my soul; thank you. Yakuza has always been a labor of love due to the sheer lack of popularity it warrants for me and it saddens me to say that I won't be doing a series on the upcoming Yakuza Kiwami 2. As a tremendous fan of this particular genre of game, the play-through I did of Yakuza 6 brought me in an "astounding" 100ish views in its entirety. That was a lot of hours setting up the stream, making sure I don't look like a doughnut on camera and uploading the videos while making sure they processed correctly. I think the populace has spoken and I will gracefully back away from uploading my play-through and focusing more of being a fan and just enjoying the game in private. Yakuza Kiwami 2 will be released world wide at the end of August - specifically the 28th - so if you're remotely curious about the series (and I believe you should be), please check it out. It's available on PS4 only.

Moving onto more private and public information at the same time, Clover will be undergoing additional surgery on her "girls" the 2nd week of September. If you haven't read the first blog on the issue; you can do so for old time's sake clicking here. Recovery time will vary, but the last time she did this she was out for 2 weeks. We're hoping with newly acquired knowledge on how the process goes as well as industrial strength painkillers - she'll be able to make a quicker recovery and be back to streaming.

Speaking of streaming - Clover has reached her 20th day of continuous streaming on Twitch and will try to keep up the schedule until she reaches 100 days. The reasons she's doing this is purely experimental; as the common advice on growing an audience has been consistency rather than quality on Twitch. So someone streaming themselves taking out the trash would be more popular than someone who streams absolutely fantastic content once a month. At least that's what we've been told - and thus our testing of the theory! If you want us to keep on trucking with our content on all platforms; please stop by and say hi and an encouraging word. Without verbal support we don't know if we're even remotely reaching out to anyone. Subbing to Clover on Twitch will always be a huge bonus, but never necessary.

Finally onto stuff outside the realm of games and streams - I've recently picked up a YouTube series that I personally found fascinating. It's on the history (and failures) of theme parks. It's called "Defunctland" and you can watch it by clicking the logo below.

The amount of passion, effort and content of the series reminds me how long I have to go to make any worthwhile interesting on my YouTube channel. I hope to one day break away from the gaming related stuff and do more topical things; but I'm going to need a subject I'm passionate about to talk on - and a co-host to bounce ideas off of. Both hard things to get, but I can always dream!  In any case, I hope you guys find the content interesting as much as I did.

Sporadic Summer Schedule

This is the best term we could come up with, so cut us some slack. The reality is we're enjoying the summer weather and awaiting for some upcoming things to happen before we go back to providing content on a more predictable schedule.

On the YouTube side, Yakuza Kiwami is going to be a lengthy play through. There are also considerations about recording Divinity II co-op. But we'll cross that road when the game launches.

On the twitch side of things, Clover needs to get her sleep and exercise schedule worked out. If this can be fixed (don't hold your breath), then she can stream more often.

Don't be afraid to message us if you like more detailed answers. Other than that, we hope you're enjoying the heat and sun whereever you are.

Best Dad I've Seen At Work

Some weeks ago, I saw the world’s best dad. He came in for his newborn son and was enrolling the baby to our program. For my work, I generally see a single mom struggling to take care of her kids on her own. It’s a sad story that I see repeated. It seems comical to encourage her to breastfeed her newborn when she needs to return to work within 2 weeks. If she doesn't, she may lose her job. Making matters worse, I rarely see the father come along. When I ask about him, I see flashes of regret followed by a combination of words that tells me he’s not around. But this man came in, and although I did not see him, the bits and pieces I heard him say warmed my heart. It’s rare seeing men in our centers let alone a man coming in for breastfeeding help for his wife. As he took out pictures of his wife’s breastfeeding latch & positions, we asked why he was making such an effort and he said, “I want him to grow big like me, or even bigger”, and “Why shouldn’t I? He’s my son”. This surprised us.

This event makes me sad a little because he is an anomaly in my reality. I often see a single mom with 3 or 4 small children all born about 1 year apart. They usually have disinterested looks on their faces.  As I counsel the mothers about healthy eating, most of them look like they’re not listening. Generally their kids are going wild as well. This leads me to believe they may have something else on their mind because their lives are so unstable. It’s disheartening, so when this dad came in, it brightened my day like no other. I hope more like him show up in the future.

I'm Going To Fan Service Myself

If i’m proud of anything, it’s me being frank about myself.  So I’m letting it be known I'm planning to have breast enlargement surgery soon in mid February. Why you ask? I want to look cute in outfits I own. That’s all! Really!

Okay, okay... they say size doesn’t matter, but I sometimes don’t know about that. In anime (a favorite hobby of mine), flat chested women are comically portrayed as being jealous or bitter of others with much endowed breasts, and in my observation it reflects real life as well. 

Regardless of pop culture, movies, anime or other references - the same theme keeps recurring. That girls with the larger breasts tend to get more attention from everyone (for good or bad) and girls with the flatter breasts tend to just blend in with the background. Either way it's attention getting for no extra effort, and attention keeping for no other reasons. I don't want to cite a single source as being evidence to my point, but take a look at this video clip if you haven't seen it already. You may not like the message, but it's there. It's always been.

Will I become happier or more fulfilled after my surgery? Who knows. But I can’t wait to be able to finally fill out my favorite dresses for once. 

c'est la vie!
