He has shown to be part of the squad. This video proves it. Check it out:

 

Some thoughts:

Many of you probably know the guy, his magnificent facial hair and (our) shared love for videogames, videogame OSTs to be precise. His videos pile up millions of views (and it wouldn't be strange if some of you have stopped watching them because of triggers, I did but it was more in an effort to stop browsing Youtube in general rather than gaming stuff in particular). 

I'm sharing this video with you guys, in this section, because many of us need that little push in order to develop our creativity (that's what the section is about, right?). Many of us spend a lot of time thinking: "Man, I wish I could do this or that, take up that instrument or that art, set up my own thing, be noticed and famous, boats and bitches", and so on. But we go to bed without daring, we just talk and daydream. Day after day. We consume, we never create. We are afraid to step forward, to take up the challenge. We fill our head with excuses: it's weird, it's not going to work, it sucks, I'm not ready, I don't have money, I need to get this or that done first. And at the end of the day, you get that nagging feeling in your chest, your neck or your stomach. It's the lie cramps. It's what you get when you know you're fooling yourself. It's your guilty conscience, saying: "Every day you are not doing what you love, or loving what you do, is a day wasted".

Don't fall for this guys. Love yourselves. Love what you do, do what you love. Shame and failure are illusions, cognitive fallacies constructed to make us blend in among the rest, to expand and nurture our comfort zone. Think about your own reasons, what motivates you, what makes you passionate, what is restraining you. Stop consuming. Get to work. Get to have fun. Get to live.
