There are a couple ways to catch my live Streams, they are outlined below.
The primary method for tuning in is YouTube. YouTube also has built-in chat making it really easy to interact with me and other viewers.
If you have limited bandwidth or otherwise do not want to use YouTube, you can use the audio stream. use the player below or click here to lihttps://lerven.me:8000/live.m3usten. Please use the audio stream as a last resort as it takes away from YouTube views.
What is it?
Starting in 2018, I have been running yearly marathons to help offset the costs of streaming. My 2021 marathon promises to be one of the biggest ever. Taking place over two days, there will be hours upon hours of live streams. Grab some snacks and tune in.

Your donations are always appreciated. You can donate via Streamlabs or you can superchat during a live stream. Please keep in mind that superchatting will take 30 percent of all donations where as streamlabs only takes basic payment processing fees.
All donations will be used to upgrade and maintain streaming and computer equipment. Donations will also be used to help ease the financial burden of next year’s planned move. your help is appreciated now more than ever.
What fun things are you doing for donations this year?
Like in past years, I will be gratefully accepting donations. Every $100 adds an extra hour to the marathon. the base time for the marathon begins at 12 hours, and every $100 will add an hour up to 24. note that hours will be split over two days. Streams will also be split in to parts to comply with YouTube’s archiving policies. Every $50 earned will cause a spin of the Wheel of Pain. You can read more about that below. donations and superchats before the start of the marathon will not count towards the marathon total but are always appreciated.
What is the Wheel of Pain?
Started in 2020, the Wheel of Pain originally served as a mechanism to decide which kinds of hot sauce I would be sampling. this year the wheel has grown to encompass a number of different options. The wheel runs from uncomfortable (having to partake in salted lickerish) to brutal (having to eat carolina reaper jelly beans), to unfair (having to play Adventure at c:\ if requirements are met).
