Twitch streamer ‘Jaegerrmeister‘ completely shocked viewers during his June 3 broadcast when he revealed that he hadn’t cleaned his bedroom since moving into his house FOURTEEN years ago.

Video game players having a dirty bedroom is a common stereotype, but Jaegerrmeister beat the absolute living daylights out of that trope after he revealed just how messy his room really is.

Piles among piles of exploding trash bags, Amazon boxes, and food wrappers could be seen behind him as he began his cleaning mission on stream.

We were watching his cleanup stream live, and asked him specifically how and why his bedroom got to that state.

“Wait, Dexerto? Am I gonna have a fucking Dexerto article about me? What the fuck?” the streamer asked before answering our question. “Basically, I moved into this house in like 2004, 2005, and I didn’t clean it. Now it’s this bad.”

He then realizes that popular World of Warcraft streamer Asmongold is watching his stream and decides to show him the mountain of trash he has in the corner of his room.

“That’s about a two meters deep of trash,” he tells the camera as he pans over to the gigantic pile, “There it is, boys.”

The streamer also revealed that he had two trash bags full of urine, as well as a pot with mouldy mac and cheese that looked like literal feces in it, although he didn’t show much of this on stream – much to the relief of the viewers.

He later revealed that the motivations behind his massive cleanup are because it’s his birthday.

How did Jaegerrmeister’s room get this bad?

As to how his room got to this point, Jaegerrmeister himself revealed that he thinks he could have a mental disorder.

“I’d like to advise anyone who doesn’t already play WoW to avoid the game at all costs, else they have a room like mine,” he said in a private message to us.

You can follow along with Jaegerrmeister’s epic room cleanup live on his official Twitch channel.

It’s fantastic that he’s finally cleaning up 14 years worth of mess though, and we wish him the best of luck in the future.


UPDATE, 2:20PM PST June 5:

Jaegerrmeister has actually followed through with his promise to clean up his room, and it looks absolutely incredible.

He showed off his newly-cleaned bedroom during his June 5 stream, his wooden floor breathing fresh air for the first time in 14 long years.

The transformation is truly amazing, and it’s hard to believe that his room was home to a gigantic trash mountain just two days ago.

It must feel so good to finally be able to live in a habitable space – let’s just hope he keeps it that way.

Congratulations, Jaegerrmeister!

DragonForce’s Herman Li banned from Twitch amid DMCA drama

Popular music streamer and DragonForce guitarist Herman Li has had his Twitch account banned on October 27, with the reason still unknown.

In a shock move, Twitch has suspended popular musician Herman Li from streaming on the platform, which he uses to provide insight into the life of professional musicians, as well as to shred his guitar like the metal God that he is.

Known for being the lead guitarist of Grammy-winning heavy rock group DragonForce – the masterminds behind the infamous ‘Through the Fire and Flames’ that dominated every Guitar Hero players’ childhood, Li has been praised over the years for his musical talents.

The guitarist has become somewhat of an icon on the platform, so it shocked fans to see his channel was no longer available.

Li has become not only a DragonForce icon, but a Twitch one too.

Is this a DMCA ban?

At the time of writing, the reason for Li’s ban is unknown. Twitch does not comment on moderation decisions as a matter of privacy.

Speculation though, is that the artist has been banned as part of the new wave of DMCA strikes that have been sweeping across Twitch. As a musical streamer, DMCA makes the lives of musicians particularly difficult. Many have and may be banned in the future due to these new regulations – even if they are playing their own music.

In April, Li was livid as Universal muted his music on YouTube.

Neither Li nor Twitch have elaborated on why the ban has taken place. No matter the reason though, this news comes will come as a shock to both Li and his fans, especially when he addressed the Twitch ban situation directly on stream back in June, reassuring other streamers that using his band’s music would not result in a DMCA strike.

Li stated that: “We know all these crazy things are happening on Twitch, people getting banned, people getting taken down, DMCA, I can tell you, you can play any song from the latest DragonForce album, Extreme Power Metal, and you will not get a strike. I assure you, you will be ok. Because we are very good friends with our people from the record label, who also love Twitch, so you will not have a problem.”

We will update this story if more details on the reason behind Li’s suspension become clear.
