Drinking Rum, playing Fallout 4, this time joining the Railroad.
I talk about other videos being on another channel. But you are in the right place, I have deleted them from my old channel and placed them here instead. Sorry about the confusion.

I noticed the last two episodes were never synced to bitchute, I uploaded today.
The final entry in the vlog. It's game over, checking out from the Bellagio trying to pass time until the plane takes off from the Airport. Mean while I bought some Twinkies and had my first taste of one.
I miss the Corvette Stingray already, I hope I can rent one again some day. At least the Dodge challenger Bumblebee is a proper V8. :D
I also enjoyed sitting at the windows, watching the fountains, recording and zooming in. Good fun.

I noticed the last two episodes were never synced to bitchute, I uploaded today, it's from 2018 so a bit late. :/
So the vacation is coming to an end soon, a final day on the trails on the bike and then back to Las Vegas. But all is not well, it seems that there is something wrong with the car, a weird grinding noise from the transmission I assume. :(
I have booked a room at the Bellagio with fountain view so I can get a great view of the fountains.

I play Fallout 4 and drink alcohol, usually rum.

So better late than never. So today I set up the lights. Visit the hardware store and try to get into that Christmas spirit.

So someone asked me to upload my review of their product to Amazon but it was rejected for now complying with their community guidelines. I make videos for fun so why bother with their useless rules.

Today I test some RGB LED glasses that can show animations, react to music, has Bluetooth connectivity to your iPhone or Android phone, controlled by an app.
If you want to be the centre of attention, this might be the glasses for your.

Sometimes there are things you promise yourself you won't do because it is a stupid thing to do and then you do it anyway.
This is such one day where I did that.
Now what?
Ok so for those that can't wait I can say that I purchased the Valve Index virtual reality headset so I can play games, exercise now when we can't go to the fitness center anymore and I can try virtual reality again. It has been 35 years since I tried it last time in a arcade, where the experience was interesting and frustrating at the same time. Not ready for prime time.
So this is also sort of an reaction video as well.

Check out my playlist on these products:

So I haven't been playing Fallout 4 for over a year and I am a bit rusty to say the least. I started a new game to join the Institute, my least favorite faction just to see it and now the time has come to choose sides.
I have purchased a remote controlled switch, running on 12v, capable of switching up to 250v(if you dare). It has 5 remotes included. Maybe for a Halloween project or something else.
It is simple, easy to use and cheap.
I'm no @bigclivedotcom and this isn't my usual format so bear with me. :D

So this is a rather long video so here's some chapters in case you are in a hurry.:

It is always fun do dig into stuff and so I am looking at which sites and services on the internet that car is talking to. Amazon, Apple, Google or others?

So it is finally time to add some more light on the gumball machine on the Twilight Zone pinball machine.

All microphones are not created equal. Here we can hear how much a difference it makes when you have to make sacrifices.
See chapters below for which microphones are used when.
If you want to see more videos about differences between microphones, check out @Booth Junkie who, unlike me, knows what he is doing.

I use a bunch of Rode microphones so we will be listening to the Røde NT1a, the SmartLav, Wireless Filmmaker, built in GoPro, built in Panasonic GH5s.

I probably have been watching too much @Pan TheOrganizer lately, but here's a 1 minute summary of how I do my weekly maintenance wash. I don't always apply the coating, it depends on how the water behaves when I wash it.
I might switch to the Turtle Wax ceramic coating, but their latest product isn't available in Europe yet, so I have already purchased one of their latest version available around here.

Doctors just HATE him for telling you this secret.
This will make it a lot more comfortable to wear a face mask. Now you can breathe freely.

One of the great tinkers. As seen on TV. Making mostly positive videos about whatever I feel like. Usually, gadgets, tinkering with stuff, but the odd other videos now and then.
I wonder if this "about/basic info" is actually read by anyone?
