Greetings

Well hello there. You seem to have stumbled upon my humble lil blog post so let me tell you about myself. My name is remotelypeachy aka Peachy aka Keeley and I am a university student, currently studying BA HONs in Fine Art. A few fun facts about myself include my love of horse riding, scented candles and peach flavoured ice tea. I’m a born and bred essex gal, I dress like the 80’s and 70s vomited all over me and I bloody love curry.

I am currently a streamer, of the art kind, fairly new to the scene I suppose. I found Twitch at the beginning of this year, my first streamer being Muyskerm (Bob), friend of jacksepticeye and Markiplier and became quickly addicted to his play-throughs of PUBG. This was the first community I became a part of, I made friends with people from across the world and we all had this admiration of Bob and his friends in common. But it didn’t feel like a family and I lost touch with those I originally felt close to. I don’t regret those friendships because they got me to where I am today.

I wanted to do things for myself and I started watching smaller, more independent streamers and I did things slow. I never once considered being a streamer before hand but after a shit few years I just wanted to do something different and something I would actually enjoy. I met my best friend Chris aka TallGuyGaming, in the utterly worst circumstances but I now can’t imagine my life without him. For some reason he insists on listening to my rambles and awful singing of Bohemian Rhapsody. Cat, Shannon, Tyler, Mariss, Bill, Shay, Jan, Kate. Wonderful, marvellous people who have no idea how much I love them. This was all through this weird dude Mr Dart, who I admit, made me laugh out loud to the point of hysterics when I’d leave his stream on in my bedroom (that’s how I’ve got 300+ hours babes). I didn’t even like State of Decay, there was just something about him that me think, yep. He’s my dad. All jokes aside, Mike has also topped up the chart to best friend.

Its weird to think that this year has been the best and the worst year of my ‘young’ life so far. I don’t think I have ever believed more in the saying “every cloud has a silver lining”. I really wouldn’t be where I am today without my friends. My family. They have just kept pushing me and supporting me to be the best version of me that I can possibly be and I will just have to continually thank them with love and hugs til the day I go up to that big ol dude in the sky.

This was a disgustingly sappy first blog post of mine, I promise you wont throw up when reading my next one.

Streamer Spotlight – MrDartsBroadcast

This week’s spotlight focuses on a relatively new streamer, who has amassed a butt-load of followers in only 5 months and plays a variety of games, including State of Decay 2, Forza Horizon 4, Call of Duty and Dead by Daylight.

MrDartsBroadcast, a.k.a The Gentleman Gamer, who minds his p’s and q’s, says please, thank you, never swears and keeps innuendo to a minimum is a really great streamer who constantly interacts with chat and makes everyone feel at home.  MrDart is very much a father figure to his community, taking everyone under his wing.  He further expands this love by adding “I’ll be your Dad” to his sub perks (sign me up!).  His streams are always interesting to watch because of the variety of games he plays.  MrDart is a big fan of State of Decay 2 (the developers love him too) and has some mad skills at the game, constantly taking part in new challenges.  He also plays Forza Horizon 4, taking us around the beautiful scenery of that game, as well as playing the odd round of Fortnite with two of the much-loved, younger members of his community, who are also dear friends to me, duo TallGuy and RemotelyPeachy.  These three people really bounce off each other and are really entertaining to watch when multiplaying.

We are often treated to a Red Room session in which MrDart cracks open a G&T, lays down his gentleman mask and has a good sesh whilst playing Dead by Daylight.  The rules are forgotten when these evenings occur we find that swearing and NSFW doesn’t result in a disapproving look from the man himself, who is too busy kicking ass in the game.

This guy is definitely one to watch, really puts the focus in, especially since he also has a real-life job too so deserves every follow he gets.

When streamers get together…

I’ve not long got back home from spending the day in Whitby.  Me and my boyfriend met up with a couple of our streamer friends who happened to be spending the weekend there and since it’s not far from us at all and we couldn’t pass up the opportunity, we ventured out this morning and met them there.

Oh my goodness I haven’t laughed so hard for ages.  It’s been many, many years since I’ve had real life friends to spend any time with so this was a big deal for me and it was the magic medicine I’ve needed for a long time.  It was so much fun that my smile muscles hurt by the end of the day and as soon as we left them to go to the car, I actually felt really sad cos I missed them already.

It’s weird how you just instantly feel at ease around some people, like you’ve known them for years, and this is exactly how I felt around godsendss and 50cal so I can’t wait to hang out with them again.  I realise there’s still a stigma about meeting people you’ve met on the Internet but I can safely say after today that this is a great thing to do and streamer meet ups, for anyone who hasn’t arranged one, should definitely be a thing.  These two people, who I basically met when I streamed randomly one day back in March when I was giving Twitch a go for the first time and gods showed up in my chat that day and every stream after.  These two people who could quite easily become very close friends in real life.  Anyway, before I go all gooey and lose my credibility with gods, here are a few snaps of our outing today!

Amazingly Gross (and totally real) Ice Cream Flavours from Around the World

So whilst trawling through Twitter in my free time I came across this Tweet. And yes, it was “gag-inducing”:

I’m all for trying new things but this just flat out looks vile. And I kid you not, it’s real, no joke. It actually inspired me (after I’d stopped feeling sick) to peruse the net and see if weird ice cream flavours are actually a thing. Turns out – they are.

I compiled a few of my favourites and most disgusting flavoured ice creams below. I actually rather like ninety percent of all the foods listed, just not in ice cream format. Because that’s gross. Here we go.

#10. Cheetos

I haven’t had many dealing with Cheetos since they’re about as rare as rocking horse shit in the UK but I have tasted them before and I quite liked them. They aren’t Brannigans Ham and Mustard crisps, but they’re nice. What I don’t want however is Cheetos in ice cream format. Yuk. The brave people at Insider gave it a go though. I think it looks suspiciously just like Mr Whippy ice cream with Cheetos powder sprinkled on top.

#9. Vegetable Ice Cream Salad

I’m really not a salad person. You can probably guess that. I prefer pizzas. Again, what I really don’t need in my life when I’m sticking at being unhealthy is an unhealthy form of salad. Kind of defeats the purpose doesn’t it? The people at Foodmento.com don’t think so. You can grab the recipe for making their vegetable ice cream salad on their website and try it for yourself.

#8. Hawaiian Pizza

Introducing the Hawaiian Pizza Ice Cream Sandwich, Complete With Hunks of Real Spam

I don’t believe pineapple has any place on a pizza. I know lots of people would disagree with me on this one. It’s a Marmite scenario, I know this. Ham is perfectly acceptable but a curse on the house of whomever thought to add pineapple to the equation. And then a double curse to the person who took it one step too far and decided that pineapple on a pizza wasn’t enough – pineapple flavoured ice cream with chunks of spam in it, in the form of an ice cream sandwich was the way forward. You sick, sick individual.

#7. Curry and Mint

Both great flavours which I enjoy on a regular basis. Mint ice cream is also the bomb. However, I like my curries to be hot not iced. And also without mint preferably.

#6. Bacon

I’ve tried bacon flavoured chocolate in the past. It’s fucking gross. I won’t venture into the world of bacon ice cream, lest I vomit profusely.

#5. Corn on the Cob

Again, soooooo lovely to have either in summer or winter (BBQ food or nice winter warmer) – so juicy and hearty. I love corn on the cob. Corn on the cob ice cream? I mean, corn on the cob is meant to be eaten hot. Why on earth would anyone be eating this?

#4. Lobster

I’ve actually never had lobster, although I’m told it’s divine. I’m not a great lover of seafood, which is strange since I live on the beach. I genuinely feel like lobster flavoured ice cream however is a definite way to barfville. Seafood should not be an ice cream flavour for the love of God.

#3. Mayo

From the picture posted right at the start I think it’s clear why this is just gross. I love mayo and I have it with nearly everything. Just not usually my desserts.

#2. Goats’ Cheese

Goats’ cheese is one of my all time favourite cheeses. I love it so much that if someone said to me, “you have to choose one or the other – wine or goats’ cheese”, I’d be as sober as a judge from that day forward. If they asked me the same question but with goats’ cheese ice cream and wine, I’d be getting plastered every single day of my life (like usual then), wallowing in the depths of despair that if I wanted my beloved goats’ cheese I had to have it in ice cream format.

#1. Raw Horse Flesh

Image result for raw horse flesh ice creamAnyone who knows me will know that I am a hardcore animal lover. I can’t see any creature in distress and frequently save the bees at work that trapped indoors. So the idea of raw horse flesh in any shape or form makes me feel nauseous. The fact that it’s supposed to be a fun flavour makes me feel even worse. I wish this were a joke but sadly, it isn’t. This is one of several weird and wacky ice cream flavours you can get at an indoor amusement park in Tokyo.

Co-Writers Wanted!

Co-WritersIt’s always great to meet new people.  I love reading blogs and reading up on peoples’ thoughts, likes, loves, hates and general interests.  I would really love to combine those two by having some co-writers join this blog and post about anything and everything they can think of!

As you’ve probably already noticed, I don’t have a theme to this blog, it’s just random posts with random topics, whatever I come across that takes my interest that particular day.  Due to the fact I’m pretty impulsive and spontaneous, posts here can be few and far between so I’d really love to have as many people as would like, join up and post your thoughts, loves/hates and general craic and keep this blog fresh and full of new posts.

If anyone is interested in this, feel free to contact me in any number of ways, from leaving a comment on this post, hitting me up on Twitter / Twitch / Instagram.

I’m really looking forward to reading any posts.  I’ve already had one response so you should be seeing some new short story content very soon!  Watch this space!
