Where’d You Go?


Heya, folks! Lumpz the Clown here, and damn if time didn’t fly! I looked around and realized that I haven’t updated you good folks in damn near TWO MONTHS! :-/ That doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy! Aside from getting my own home situation back in order, I’ve been working my ass off, mostly behind the scenes, and even got back into writing articles!  So where do I begin…Oh yeah!

Channel Work

So, for those who follow me on Twitter or Facebook, you may recall me rumbling about changing the format of my channel. No, this doesn’t mean I’m gonna start posting fluffy kitten videos or ones of me getting hit in the nuts, but rather simple evolution. I’ve been doing mostly Let’s Plays for about 2 years now, and it’s time to step it up.

Here’s an example of the direction my channel will take going forward!

So what else can you expect from your favorite Clowny Gamer?

I still plan on doing yearly events like Summer Brutality and the occasional stream, but my focus is shifting to content that makes you think, shake your head, scratch your ass, a combination of all…I don’t know! Why, you may ask? Because of my undying love for video games, and the fact that you good folks deserve the absolute best that I can provide, which includes the natural upward evolution of what I produce!

Yeah, it’s more work, but I don’t care! It’s time to get dirty, and in the words of Jigsaw…


Ahem…”THERE”. And on that note…

Patreon Page Launched


For those who know me well, I’m a scatterbrain. Many of the ideas that I come up with get pulled out of my ass at the last minute. For those who have just arrived, I’ll put it this way: I have a TON of great ideas, but I don’t always know what they’ll be and they flat out disappear…unless I write them down!

Throw in the fact that I just endured a serious life change, the problem became much worse.

To combat my heightened brain farts, the time has come to bring my vision back into focus! I’ve setup a Patreon page where anyone who’s a fan of my content can see what I have in the pipeline, along with some of the crazier goals I have in mind.

I’ve got specific rewards set aside for those who are in a position to contribute, but that doesn’t mean I’m leaving non-contributors in the dust! EVERYONE’S welcome to see what my goals are for the channel going forward, and just flat-out bullshit with me about video games whenever the hell they want! Because, hey, that’s the one hobby that we all have in common, right?! 🙂

If you haven’t yet, peep my Patreon page for more details! I got some crazy shit listed!

Halloween’s Coming!


EDITED 10/10/2015! Read Below!

I haven’t quite decided what I’ll be doing for Halloween specifically this year (hell, I may decide to go out and get wasted), but know this: I plan on ringing in this momentous holiday with something special. Whether it occurs on the 28th, 29th or the 30th has not been decided yet, but rest assured it will be awesome!

I plan on doing a livestream of some kind over on my Twitch channel, but I’m not sure what I’ll be playing yet. In light of my recent change in attitude, I’m going to leave it up to YOU good folks! I’ll be making the call out on Twitter and Facebook as well, but whatever game is decided, I’ll play!

The choices are:

  1. Silent Hill 3
  2. Clock Tower 2
  3. Final Doom (PS1)

One of two things will happen: either I’ll play until I beat it, or get myself so horrendously stuck that I’ll have no choice but to call it quits! The latter won’t even be an option until AT LEAST 2 HOURS have passed!

I’ll be sending the official poll out on OCTOBER 5th, 2015, with voting closing on OCTOBER 12th, 2015! Hell, feel free to write in your votes, either below in the Comments or on Twitter or Facebook! I’ll log that shit down and we’ll see what title comes out on top!

(EDIT: Due to technical difficulties with setting up the poll, I’ll have the announcement out by Monday, October 12th, 2015, along with the date that the horrifying insanity is going down. Stay tuned!)

Retroholics in the HOUSE!

For real….CLICK ME!


I’ve been a part of the amazing group known as Retroholics Anonymous since its inception, and I couldn’t be more honored! We cover all types of shit, from retro game collecting to industry news! To call us “unrefined” would be an understatement, and it’s a title we proudly tout!

Yes, we all have our own content, but what makes what we do amazing is that we’re all able to come together every 2 weeks and tear it up not only with each other, but also the fine folks who tune in when we GO LIVE! Every other Wednesday, around 8PM CST, we all huddle in for meeting time on our Twitch channel and ham it up!

Viewer questions are accepted for the last half hour of our stream, and they typically run about 2 hours total! For those unable to tune into the live broadcast, we also provide the videos on our YouTube channel, along with topical shorts, so if you feel the need to melt your eardrums with some gamer awesomeness, this is the place to go!

I’m proud to be a Retroholic, and we’re here to entertain, offend and enlighten!

Going Forward…

I won’t lie. These last 3 weeks have been the hardest I’ve endured in awhile, but all I can do is move forward. I’ll be sure to pop in here every 30 days to keep you appraised of what I’ve been up to and what’s coming up not only for your peace of mind, but for my own!

I need to know exactly HOW I’m moving forward, and unless I write that shit down, it feels like I’m falling down a rabbit hole with no end in sight! That shit’s OVER! As long as I’m still pulling air into my lungs, I’ll be here to let you know what’s going on! The time has come to document every aspect of my progress, no matter how infinitesimal it may seem!

No more discounting what I accomplish! It’s time to brag about it! You folks are here along with me, and you all deserve it! Clowny News will continue, and I’ll never neglect it again! Lumpz the Clown OUT!
