MOONMOON is one of Twitch’s most entertaining and creative streamers and he showed exactly why during a WoW Classic session on September 20. 

The popular stream personality was watching a YouTube video called Top 40 Creepiest Japanese Urban Legends while trying to hit level 60 in World of WarCraft when the story about a poem called “Tomino’s Hell” began to play.

According to the video, Tomino’s Hell is a cursed Japanese poem that causes illness, misfortune and even death to whoever is brave enough to read it outloud. 

BlizzardMOONMOON has been playing a lot of WoW Classic on stream.

The voiceover goes on to state that many people have begun to feel uneasy after reading halfway into the poem, that was written by Yomota Inuhiko in a book called “The Heart is Like a Rolling Stone”.

Eventually, the video transitioned to someone reading the poem in Japanese while the English subtitles played on screen. 

“Literally all you have to do is not read it out loud and you won’t die, chat,” MOONMOON told his stream when they questioned why he wasn’t reading the cursed poem.  “Anyway…”

After listening to the supposedly cursed poem and the creepiest Japanese urban legend of all time, an unimpressed MOONMOON decided to turn the spooky story up a notch.

“Wait, I got a better idea,” the former Overwatch streamer said. “Hold on.”

The Twitch star then began loading up a beat to play over the poem. The result was an incredible fire track with his chat crying “rap god” and for good reason – the beat mixed with the poem actually worked out quite well. 

“Oh shit,” MOONMOON said once the song ended, clearly impressed with his DJing skills.

It’s incredible to think that a bizarre obscure poem could morph into a banger track. Good thing the quick-thinking streamer found a way to entertain the masses and perhaps even break the poem’s curse.

Barstool Sports’ Dave Portnoy has appeared to confirm that the popular website’s SiriusXM channel will be moving on satellite radio, claiming he was “99%” sure they were leaving.

The satirical sports website announced its SiriusXM channel back in November of 2017 and launched a few months later in January 2018.

Now, however, it seems like the deal is done and so is Barstool.

Dave Portnoy, Barstool Sports’ founder took to Twitter to announce that it was looking extremely unlikely that the channel would continue on SiriusXM.

“I’d say we’re 99.9% out of Sirius,” he revealed. “We aren’t in same stratosphere in terms of negotiations.”

“We will just move on to new platforms as always. Our crowd will follow as always,” the Barstool founder added.

It’s unclear exactly where they will move to and Portnoy, who has grown increasingly famous over the years in part to his viral pizza reviews, offered no clues.

One possible destination spot could very well be Spotify, which shocked the industry by signing Joe Rogan and his podcast to an exclusive deal.

While Portnoy didn’t elaborate on the type of deal he would like, it sounds like he’s being severely low-balled by the satellite radio company, hence his aggressive-sounding tweet.

This news comes as Bloomberg has reported that Howard Stern is nearing a massive $120M a year deal – a step above from his previous deals at $80 to $100 million a year.

If those reports are right, it’s a sign that Sirius XM is willing to pay some serious cash, but apparently not when it comes to keeping Barstool within its network.

“See this is why I can’t work for peanuts,” Portnoy said in response to the Stern report. “I’m not Stern. But I’m not nobody either.”

We’ll just have to see what the future holds for both SiriusXM and Barstool, and if a deal can be salvaged.
