About

I was the first person to ever call a Twitch stream "Porch". That's my claim to fame.

In a Nutshell

A motorbike loving, ex-IT professional who made some bad decisions, got into trouble then turned his life around. Now sharing my life and musings on Twitch, Discord and this here blog.


What Are You In For?

Who is Hardly Gospel??

I’m sarcastic, cynical, deeply un-trusting and very analytical. I don’t beat around the bush and cut straight down the line with my words. Sometimes I call people out; challenge them so much they start insane vendettas. But it’s a two-way street – I always give them the opportunity to challenge me so, despite my faults, I am often commended to be fair. On the flip side, I have love. I don’t want to waste my time with toxic people anymore. I aim to surround myself with honest people which share the same compassion and empathy for others. Humour, humour is also a big one. Take a joke!


Then…

Hardly Gospel
Me and my old Harley Davidson Softail

For 18 years my life consisted of homelessness, detention centres, partying, drugs and crime. There used to be a large wall of text here, but I was told by a good friend that we ought not to be weighed down by the past……


Now…

Tania and I…

It’s been a crazy few years… So damn crazy it’s difficult to explain without sounding, well… crazy. Twitch has been a blessing. Live streaming has been one of the best things I’ve done in years. I’m deeply grateful for the support of everyone who’ve joined me on this crazy broadcasting journey.

I especially have to credit the supportive community and those rare good souls I’ve met from other communities along the way. While there’s occasional social parasites and mobs of trivial speds up-in-arms about my particular brand of personality, I’m here for the community. I’m working on a schedule and creating some epic content for the community as I work through my own issues.

But enough of all that. If you’ve read this far.. well done!


Games

I’m into MMORPG’s, open world PVP, Sandbox games and love nostalgic indie titles. I started my gaming career playing Ultima Online, then games like Shadowbane, Dark Age of Camelot and recently renewed my love of World of Warcraft (WoW) and Eve Online. My list of recently played titles I highly recommend are:

P.s

Offended?

For those who don’t understand satire or sarcasm, this is a personal blog, not a news site. Content will often include my personal views on life – be it gaming, events or otherwise. I will not take any responsibility for your butthurt or drama. Nothing happens when you’re offended.

To the rest of you, my biggest of love.

As of this update, I have streamed for a little over a year with close to 3k manned hours on Twitch.
