Stranglehold gameplay with commentary for the Xbox 360

Russ Tafari plays John Woo's Stranglehold xbox 360I have been doing commentary videos on a older game called “John Woo’s Stranglehold” which is like come crazy kung fu gun action shit. The character dives around all over the place and it’s pretty entertaining. Check out the playlist below.

Want to make some money online? Check out Amazon’s Mechanical Turk

Russ Tafari money cash flow

amazon mechanical turk mturkSo I discovered Amazon’s Mechanical Turk (Mturk for short) as a way to make some extra money. All you do is surveys and the pay amounts for each survey differs based on how much the requester wants to pay. I usually stick to the surveys that pay 10 cents a minute or more. You can make some pretty good money if you have the time to put into it. I put in about 20 minutes a day and make right around $5 a day so it’s not too bad. There is a 24 approval period when you put in your application. They will get back to you and say whether or not you are approved then you can start turking away! When you first get approved there will be a 10 day period where your payments will not show up in your Amazon payments account but after that they will all hit at once and it’s all gravy baby! I believe in those 10 days you are limited to 100 hits a day (hell I’ve never done that many in a day so it shouldn’t be much of a problem).

A site I use to find the best hits (that pay 10 cents a minute or more) is actually a subreddit on reddit called HitsWorthTURKingFor. I basically only do hits posted there. There are a few other resources but I don’t use any of them because they are way too clutter up and HitsWorthTURKingFor is straight to the point with no BS.

I just though I would share that with my readers! Enjoy!

Happy Thanksgiving 2013

happy thanksgiving

happy thanksgivingI just wanted to make a little post wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving! It is hard to believe that this time last year I was homeless living on the streets! I am thankful to have a place to live, a job, and being able to do what I love! This has been a great year as I have been off the streets since January 19th, 2013. I was homeless for 5 years and it was very rough, but it was a learning experience I wouldn’t trade for anything. I am a better person because of it and my hustle game is on lock. I’m currently living just outside of New Orleans, Louisiana but will be going back to Los Angeles (hopefully) within a year from now.

Since there really isn’t much to this post I decided to include two of my latest GTA Online gameplay commentary videos. Please check them out below and don’t be scared to share them if you like them. Thank you!

Underground Mastermind Hip Hop Beat Making Video 13

Underground Mastermind hip hop beat making video 13

Underground Mastermind hip hop beat making video 13Oh yeah it’s been a minute since the last beat making video so I just had to do a new one! Up to video number 13 now, slowly but surely I will have many many more! Each one is a progression. Why do I say that? Because making music is just like everything else you get better each time you do it. Even though I have been making beats since the late 90’s I still get better and I still learn new techniques. Anyway on this video I got back into cutting between the screen capture of the music software and me playing the keyboard. I think this makes for a better video because you can actually see me playing the keys. Even though it’s only on a little Akai LPK 25 keyboard you still get the idea. I really need to get me a keyboard with full sized keys one of these days! Those itty bitty keys are just too small. Ok without further a due the video is below check it out and thanks for watching! You can subscribe to my Youtube channel here.
