Tanandra Through the Years

Tanandra was ‘born’ as an idea when Everquest entered closed beta on November 4th, 1998.

I’ve been in many MMOs and games since, more than I can remember. Attached are images and screenshots of what could be found.

Took me a long time to come to terms with who I am, and who I want to be. šŸ™‚

Hello, my name is Tanandra!


I decided to start streaming mainly as a way to not seem crazy when I talk to myself while playing games. It turns out there’s a ton of great people that I’ve met, and I’d love to meet you too! Come say hi, play some video games with me or just hang out!

I used to be called FromThe70s and recently decided to get back to being comfortable in my skin and just BE Tanandra full time.

As for my background; I’m a child of the 70s – I grew up with Magnavox, Commodore and Atari. Occasionally I’d program, I’ve published one terrible iPhone game and used to be able to sightread for Clarinet. i might still be able to, but I haven’t tried in years. So maybe not.

I’ve been married for 30+ years, and my daughter is married and in college! So proud!

I’m a certified Open Water SCUBA diver (I do need to re-cert though), I’ve played far too many MMOs, and I’m a sucker for pirate related stuff. Yo ho scallywag pirates, not real ones.

It keeps coming up, so to mention it here – yes, I am from the 70s, but I lived THROUGH the 80s, 90s, 2000s etc. I was a little kid in the 70s. Yes I like 80s music and movies too! I’m not a time traveler!

Also, just so that I don’t lose the date, I considers when I started streaming (my streamerversary as it were) as 10/15/16. That’s the first entry on the channel where IĀ  said I’d been streaming for a day. Plus it just rolls off the tongue. Ten Fifteen Sixteen.
