Streamer Spotlight: Mainiac Hoop
Tell us a little about yourself.
26 years old, from a peninsula in Midcoast Maine known as "Tenants Harbor"
What are your hobbies?
Retro games, Rock Band 3 pro drums and pro keys, party chats with DANK people (You know who you are) and oh yeah... Here is a real one.. Cooking (I'm a line cook)
What inspired you to start streaming?
Many people inspired me to want to stream. This dates back to about 2007 or 2008. Watching people like TimEBaysBall, ibiteprettyhard, Azuritereaction, BillTVShow, and many others. I remember watching their videos and streams, and thinking "Hey, I really wanna be able to do that!" Little did I know, the HDPVR (I had a model 1 HDPVR) could only record, and not stream.
What game(s) do you stream?
Rock Band 3(Pro Drum customs+Pro Keys), Resident Evil games, Retro, And pretty much whatever I think is not only gonna be entertaining for me, but for others as well!
What instrument(s) do you play?
What's the story behind your gamertag?
Most others from New England, tend to refer to people from the state of Maine as "Maine-iacs" So I decided to do my own spin on it "Mainiac Hoop" The Hoop at the end of my gamertag is actually my last name.. (Which is Hooper) <-- Something that most don't know.
What makes your stream unique?
Eh, not too sure how to answer this one. There is nothing really flashy about my stream, and I am not the greatest RB player (in fact, I am actually terrible at the game) Jenni, I know you're going to edit this to say I am "good or beast" LOL. [Note: Jenni left the post as-is.] To be perfectly honest, probably my personality (what little of one I actually have) MingLee
What's your favorite part about streaming?
The amount of support through the viewers. Be it their kind words, them showing support by just being there (lurkers) Also just the community that we all have built, and how nice everyone is. You guys/gals have made me cry before (Which truthfully, takes a LOT to do) Thank you all for the love and support! It truly means a lot <3
What are the current goals or milestones you're working on?
Hitting 200 followers. I am so surprised that I ever saw anything past 20,30,40, or 50! Hitting 200 followers would absolutely blow my mind! Also, to have my stream (the bio stuff down below) look a lot better. I'd love to have things like a song list, and border images an backgrounds for each section.
Nice to meet you Sam! <3
