I want...

 I want a toilet with a built in scale. Not to weigh the person on the toilet. Just to weight the contents of the toilet. Could add a way to see the volume too. Be nice to know if really did break your old record.

I want a game controller that measures the vital signs of the user. Also, the pressure they are holding the controller with. I want to know what games are really the most stressful. 

 I want a streaming service that only has television show that lasted one season. A streaming service of failure. 

 I want a special feature that just tells you how much everyone was paid. So you could see how over paid the stars are, and how underpaid everyone else is. 

I want an online store that will tell you which product reviews are fake. 

I want...

Black Friday 2021

 Didn't get a damn thing this year. Deals were not that good. Deals were not as numerous. Black Friday was just a waste of time this year.

Black Friday

Its not really "Black Friday" this year. Most retailers are claiming some along the lines of "Black Friday all month" or all season long. The deals are not as good as usual. Doesn't look like they are going to get that way either. 

Not trying to be greedy, I just want some cheap video games. Maybe a cheap low end chromebook. Doesn't seem like that is in the cards. 

Walmart had some cheap movies, but that was only for a few days. Was label as "while supplies last", that seems to have been a bold faced lie. Wonder what else they will do that on?

No Cheap Candy

 I love Halloween. I know it is has been a week since Halloween. Usually around this time you can get leftover Halloween candy at huge discounts. That didn't happen this year.

This year the day after Halloween all the candy was gone from stores. Not a single piece of discounted candy to be found at any Walmart or Target I went to. Where did it all go? I doubt it was donated to anyone. Was it just taken back for repackaging? 

Why has one of the best parts of Halloween been taken away?

Gaming Woe.

 Do I am a gamer. Lately, it isn't going great. Trouble finding old games. Trouble finding the right controller for newer systems. When did gaming become such a pain in the ass?

Been trying to find some PSP (Playstation Portable) games I missed at the time. This has two problems. First finding a shop that still sells them at all. Second, the prices they want are getting ridiculous. One game I was trying for was Persona 1, the PSP had a remake of it. At one shop the clerk says they had one that sold for 17$ back in August. That price seemed good, just need to wait. Then the clerk says "that if they get another copy it would be 120$". How does the price of a used game go up 100$ in two months?The demand for PSP games cannot of spiked that much. 

Meanwhile I am looking for a joy-con alternative for the Switch. I have the Hori Split Pad Pro, and that great for most handheld mode gaming, but some games require gyro control and they don't have that. With joy-con drift being a thing, I don't want to use them at all. I see many options on Amazon, but I have no real way of knowing which are good, or even really have a gyro for motion control.

Youtube Troubles.

Trying to get subscribers on my youtube. No idea how to go about this. Googling it did not help.

Someone said ,more uploads help. So a while back I started doing two videos a week. Saturdays are for reviews. Tuesday is for everything else. Got a few more, but not nearly enough. 

I dream of getting paid. Not looking to get rich, just would like a trickle of cash. Wouldn't turn down more, but know it isn't realistic. Getting to that 1000 subscriber mark is hard.

Mayflash F500 and a Magicboot

So I bought this:

I bought this along with a "magicboot" to use with my Xbox One. I did this because of the lack of options for Xbox compatible arcade sticks. I would have preferred to only have to order one item, but that simply wasn't an option. So I have basically made a makeshift Xbox Arcade stick.

This stick usually works by plugging an official controller into via usb. Doing so will let it work with almost anything. However, having another controller tethered to it at all times is both awkward and cumbersome. The magicboot plugs into the same usb port and takes the place of the other controller.  

This works well, and is a quality stick. I plan to get a bat top for it, and get some art going. Very happy with this. 

I do still want to get a stick for the PS4. I could buy a second magicboot, only in playstation flavor, but I dislike the idea of switching them around. Debating between the Qanba Pearl, and the Hori Real Arcade Pro N. Not sure which direction to go.
