I Wanna Add You

Toez, can I play with you?

Toez, can I play with you?

Many might think I have a YouTube channel for fame, some would think it’s the money, still others may think it’s to have an endless pool of people to play with. It’s about time I address this head-on.

I’m a fan of film and video games, and would enjoy a career in the entertainment industry. I live in Los Angeles, so it’s a given, right? Like anything else, there are tons of “me” out there already so it’s not going to be easy. Since I like to game, editing gameplays has given me a chance to work with software and skills necessary for anything in TV or film later on. I’m not saying I’m a pro at this point, but I’ve learned quite a bit and have even landed a few jobs already in entertainment.

Having a little notoriety within a certain fanatical community however isn’t what it’s cracked up to be. I used to get asked several times a week to add someone to their friend list until a recent PSN FW update allowed random friend requests to be turned off, and I took advantage of it. Do I dislike you or playing with new people? No, but when you add someone that almost literally begs you, then never plays with you after caving in for a month, I really don’t need to see when you’re on or offline because in the end, you won’t play anyway. That gets annoying when recording too, hence why I’d delete you anyway if we haven’t connected in a month or less.

I usually get on late night Pacific Standard Time, but that doesn’t seem to stop kids of other countries from sending requests either. Odds are, I’m fragging while you’re just getting up in the morning. I don’t want to hear that you’re different either. I’ve been going through this for well over a year and not a single person has done what they said they’d do, so it’s my choice to just ignore them whenever possible because it’s gotten quite annoying now. Now drama queens are recently coming out of the wood works too. If this makes you hate me and feel you must retaliate against me online, go ahead. Clearly you have more disposable time than I do.

I do appreciate fans of my work and am a sociable person but if you insist on reaching out to me, why not tweet me or comment on my Facebook page? Having me on your friend list won’t solve anything, and I’m flattered that many of you try but I’m afraid it’s been ruined as it’s ultimately my call to send the invite and seeing that I already have plenty to choose from, I’m not in a rush to add more.
