PAX 08: The Destructoid Panel finale: Grow some balls - proper video (Chad)


7:47 PM on 08.31.2008



The wisdom of Chad Concelmo can be summed up in one sentence: "Sometimes there are moments in life where you just have to punch an old woman in the face."  This is some profound Zen shit but I'll do my best to synthesize what our dolphin ambassador means. Making bold moves in your life to remove obstacles that stand between you and your blogging passion can make all the difference. 

More on Chad's life lessons and the wrap-up reader questions after the jump. I apologize for the video mix-up earlier. Look, I drink.

Important! There was also a moment where we thought his panel was going to turn into a Disney musical. If you would like Chad to serenade you in an upcoming podcast, please sign this petition in the comments below!

Growing balls and steering your life towards a career in writing will mean something different to each individual. Some of you may have demanding jobs that prevent a blogging schedule that you may need to scale back.  Some of you may be Amish and secretly blogging from an iPhone you concealed in. How sustainable is that?

There is a fine line between idiocy and being stupid enough to believe in your dreams, so Chad's panel relays his personal experience of balancing a demanding external career and using what little time he has to the things he loves the most: play video games, share his passion through original features on Destructoid, make amazing podcasts for RFGO, and dine at SoupPlantation with a happy asian family and one disgruntled guy. Jim Morrison did say that "the West is the Best".

The final part of the video contains attendee questions on podcasting, money making, analytics, user surveys, and stuff. That's a wrap!

In BaraBariBall you lose your balls when you jump

I played BaraBariBall over a year ago at GDC 2013 and it was fun as heck. I liked it BaraBari much. But it's still not out. Not yet, anyways. It's coming this year to PC, PS4, and PS3 as a part of the amazing Sportsfriends. ...more

Interstellar Selfie Station is what happens when you keep the best part of a scrapped project

Christine Love (Analogue: A Hate Story) was making an FMV game and decided that it wasn't fun, but the development tools were. Because of this insight, we can all take 2 bit selfies for days. I wonder how long before my browser's built in spell check accepts "selfies." Yes, you. Do it. Though I don't know if you can beat Holmes and Love.more
