Think about it – they have to test everything, up to and including, “How does the game handle it when the most amazing player in the world pulls off a series of spectacular moves with pinpoint precision?” If the tester can’t do that, well, too bad.
“I’m pretty good at fighting games, but I’m not great,” says Corey. “Some have ridiculous 10 button combos, and sometimes I can’t do those. Well, fuck. You can’t cheat your way through it, that defeats the purpose of the test. So you have to sit there and practice the move all day until you get it.”
Every gamer knows how frustrating it is to get stuck, but at least you can walk away, calm down, and not have your boss tell you to get back in there and spend hours mastering the single secret move that makes Barbie’s horse eat a rival jockey. Have you ever played a game to relax after finishing a project with a tight deadline? For testers, the game is the deadline. You have to grind away at whatever you’re stuck on for an hour, a day … however long it takes you, which will be well past the point of fun.

Imagine Shannon having alone time.
Drummers get lonely too 😉
How long has it been? Three weeks, five days and eighteen hours. Not that I’ve been keeping track or anything. The one time that my brother decided it would be a good idea to shoot a video right after the tour finished.
I can’t sleep. The RV in the middle of nowhere without you is torture. I miss your lips. Your good night kisses and the way you… God damn.
I turn over on to my side and face the wall trying hard to ignore the growing bulge beneath my pajama pants.
Flipping through the selfies you sent me, makes it even worse. I can literally feel myself pulsing in my hand now when I start stroking my dripping prick.
Looking at the way your eyes sparkle, seeing the glow on your face after you got yourself off just for me makes me ache for you.
I let my hips do the work now, mimicking the movements you like. Small little circles that coat your walls. The parts that make you scream out my name and dig your nails in to my flesh.
I’m silently thankful that everyone is asleep and remind myself to keep it down. Just a few more hours now and I’ll be home. In our bed. Inside you. Watching you squirm beneath me.
For now, I let myself go tilting my head back and cumming over my hand and belly.
Loop #58 is actually an old video I shot of actor Rhashan Stone 3 years ago as a digital billboard for the promotion of a tv show. I wasnt into cinemagraphs at the time and the shot ended up not getting used. It was too good not to share so I decided to make new stuff out of the old.
Welcome to the third annual Monkees Awards Tumblr Challenge! Over the next 2 weeks you’ll be given 15 questions to answer regarding the boys, the music, the show - and a few special questions, unique to you, for the 50th anniversary.
CHALLENGE STARTS MONDAY 13th JUNE 2016.
This is pretty much the same as any other daily Tumblr Challenge, the only difference being that I’ll be counting up everyones answers to determine the ‘winners’ of each ‘award’. This is all in good fun and shouldn’t be taken too seriously! You can see the results of the 2014 and 2015 awards here and here.
How to play:
The best and most fun way will be to create your own post - just make sure you tag it with “#monkees awards 2016” to ensure that I don’t miss your posts. Feel free to get deep with your answers; add pictures or videos or gifs or links or anything like that - this is about creating a discussion, after all! Last year we had some amazing gifsets and photosets created, along with some wonderful in-depth text posts. Do whatever you want to voice your answers!
If you miss a day out, don’t worry; I know not everyone can get online every day or has the time to respond right away, and if you want to answer a bunch of questions all in one go then that is totally fine. I will announce the results a few days after the challenge ends, so you have until then to get your answers in - however which way you want to do it.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask!
The challenge doesn’t start until Monday 13th June. So please don’t start the challenge before then as it’ll get confusing and your votes won’t be counted!
Reblog this post to spread the word and get everyone involved!

I was excited to begin my journey — as it was also my first week at Playbill.com — and set a few too many goals for myself. My list of musts included taking a selfie with Lin-Manuel Miranda, recording good-quality videos of every pre-show performance and, of course, winning a front-row seat to Hamilton. Was I successful in any of my efforts? Without further ado, I present to you my Hamilton rush story.
