Hi

I'm TalkyPup, though I've previously gone by my initials; JJ. I'm an Australian who's been making videos about video games and other nerd stuff on-and-off for nearly a decade. I've changed a lot over the years, but despite my slow output, one thing that hasn't changed is my desire to create, and I'd be thrilled to have you along for the ride.

History of the show


I first started creating video reviews in 2010 under the title "JJ's Rambling Reviews," specializing in reviews of video games and anime. In 2011, I became an official contributor to The Otaku Project, a website featuring up and coming anime reviewers, and a variety of other underappreciated video creators and article writers. To many of us, our work was just a hobby. A hobby that was left behind as we moved on to other things. But even as The Otaku Project closed its doors for good, and even as some of our friendships faltered due to loss of contact or other reasons, I've never had any intention of leaving my show behind. Even though my past videos have been finished and released months or even years apart, I’ve never really gone on an intentional hiatus, or stopped thinking of myself as a creator. I’ve just slowed down a lot as various things got in my way, like school, jobs and most prominently, my own mental health. Now, my life is very slowly getting back on track, and that includes my videos too.

Why make videos, and why use Patreon?

I want other people to feel the same way that many other reviewers, let's players and other video creators have made me feel. I want to make people happy, make them think, and share a part of myself with them. I want to help people, and I want to create something that’ll hopefully still be around even when I’m not. Ideally, I'd also like to do that for a living. This is where Patreon comes in. If I have a full time job, then I’m not gonna have a lot of time and energy to make videos, build an audience and reach out to as many people as I can. Of course, it'll likely be a long time before I reach a point where I won't need another job, so in the meantime, 100% of the money raised here will be put back into the show, and other creative endeavors such as my art. This could be in the form of video and audio equipment (mics, cameras, game capture devices, cables, an upscaler e.t.c.), professional software (like newer versions of Adobe Photoshop, Premiere, e.t.c.), hosting my website, and a few other things here and there.

This Patreon will charge on a per-video basis, so if I take forever to finish my next video, you won't be charged for it. In the long-term future, and if I'm able to be more consistent with my workload and upload schedule, I may switch to a per-month system and start using this account to start funding drawings, streams and other content, but not without notifying Patrons well in advance.

Thank you!

Whether you choose to donate or not, I appreciate you taking a look at this page. It means the world to me. :D
