DrLupo is going insane without any internet at his house

Popular Twitch streamer and gamer Ben ‘DrLupo’ Lupo is experiencing a seemingly neverending series of complications with his internet – and it’s leading to some hilarious shenanigans on Twitter.

DrLupo reached out to his service provider in a Tweet on November 2, explaining that he was having an issue with his upload bandwidth. He followed up with another Tweet shortly thereafter, revealing that he would have to wait for a technician to fix the issue on Sunday, November 4.

Lupo went on to explain that his account status had also been changed upon his recent move, and that his service had even been completely disconnected after getting off the phone with support.

DrLupo has since gone on a tirade of hilarious Tweets bemoaning his lack of internet, even entertaining the idea that he should buy a drone.

“I am incredibly easily entertained when my internet has been out for just over 24 hours,” Lupo wrote over the caption of a vine.

He’s even gotten into shenanigans on Instagram, replying to a Fortnite post with a long-winded version of the old loltyler1 meme, claiming that ‘this is what happens when I don’t have internet.’

However, it looks like Sunday’s efforts haven’t fixed Lupo’s internet issues; he explained that there could be potential line damage between his home node and the neighborhood node, leaving the fate of his stream schedule up to a ‘specialist.’

Now, viewers will have to wait until Tuesday for DrLupo’s return: In the interim, he may have to light the oil lamps and churn his own butter.

Ellen Page starring in controversial new movie about sexism in esports

Oscar-nominated actress Ellen Page is set to star in an esports feature film ‘1UP’. The comedy features an athlete who, with the help of a veteran coach, forms an all-female esports team after she’s forced out of her college’s roster.

Page won an Oscar nomination for playing the title character in the 2007 hit ‘Juno’ and has appeared in movies like Inception and X-Men: Days of Future Past. She also featured alongside Willem Dafoe as telepathic teenager Jodie in the 2013 game Beyond: Two Souls.

The new movie, 1UP, is set to include Paris Berelc as the excluded gamer. Berelc is probably best known for her role in Adam Sandler’s spooky comedy Hubie Halloween.

This is Buzzfeed Studios’ first-ever feature-length film, so they’ll be desperate to make sure it’s a hit to put their name on the map as a legitimate studio.

What we know about ‘1UP’ so far

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Berelc’s character, Vivian, quits her college esports team after being subject to sexism from her male teammates. With the help of Page’s “enigmatic coach”, she assembles an all-women’s team to compete with the boys.

Which esport the movie is set around remains in question, but it’s all part of Buzzfeed’s mission to create “socially relevant” movies for “millennial and Gen Z audiences.”

Studios creating movies like this is another sign of esports moving further into the mainstream – provided it’s successful, of course. But, whether this movie is a very positive reflection on esports or not remains to be seen.

Reactions to ‘1UP’

The premise has provoked some controversy, with some fearing the comedy elements could detract from a serious issue.

Games and comics writer Zoë Quinn sarcastically labeled it “fun” – when the topic at hand isn’t.

Production is expected to begin in November, meaning we’re going to be waiting a while to see it on our screens. Regardless, as one of the first major feature films based around esports, it’s going to be worth keeping an eye on.
