PauseUnpause, also known simply as Pause, or his personal name Alex Edgar,[5] is a Canadian Let's Play commentator, a member of Mindcrack since October 2011, an unofficial member of the Buffalo Wizards, and a founding member of N3RDFUSION.

Biography[edit]

Alex, Andrea, and their dog Zelda unboxing a Loot Crate, October 2014

Pause's family on his mother's side are Cree[6] from the Cross Lake First Nation in Manitoba.[7][8][9] Pause's mother speaks Cree fluently, but Pause admits to never having embraced the culture growing up.[10] Pause regularly refers to himself as such, or includes jokes about his background in conversation.[11]

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Pause moved regularly during his childhood due to his father's work. He recalls living in Cumberland House, Saskatchewan, Oxford House, Manitoba, Slave Lake, Alberta, Bonnyville, Alberta, Wabasca-Desmarais, Alberta, Yellowknife, Northwest Territories, and Ottawa, Ontario before moving back to Winnipeg, Manitoba.[12][13] He has also mentioned living in Medicine Hat, Alberta.[14][15]

Pause went to school in Redcliff, Alberta while he lived in Medicine Hat.[14] He was required to repeat 10th grade due to skipping an extreme amount of classes.[16] He graduated from high school in 2007 while living in Ontario.[17] He attended college in Winnipeg studying electrical engineering before dropping the subject due to a lack of interest.[18] In early-2012, Pause spoke of his intention to move to Toronto, Ontario to continue his education,[19] taking a media communications course[20] at Humber College.[21] He later acknowledged issues being accepted into the school, and as such, didn't move to Toronto.[22][21] Having enjoyed his August 2012 vacation there,[23][24] Pause moved to Duncan, British Columbia in October 2012.[25]

Pause described his previous full time job as a blue collar job working in a warehouse packing beer into crates for shipping.[26] At the beginning of May 2012, Pause announced that he had resigned his existing job and would be publishing to YouTube on a full-time basis.[27] Pause has mentioned working at a McDonald's at age 16,[28] a Harvey's while living in Ottawa,[29] at a Walmart,[30] at Charter Communications,[31] and at Convergys in Brandon, Manitoba in the past.[32]

Contact and questions[edit]

Pause actively welcomes questions submitted by viewers and responds to them during his SMP videos and occasional dedicated features, which in the past have included "Triple Eh" shows (a play on the phrase 'triple A' and the stereotyped Canadian vocal mannerism of appending "Eh" to the end of sentences) and "Mailbox Thursdays".[33][34] These question and answer sessions are normally done in partnership with his wife, Andrea.

He provides two methods of contacting him to offer these, in addition to the usual YouTube features of video comments and private messaging. The first is via a dedicated e-mail address, which is AskPauseUnpause@gmail.com. He specifies these conditions for submitting questions:

  • "Please tell us whether or not you would like to be called by your name, if not maybe an alias. Troll questions wont be asked, so don't bother. Questions can range from personal issues to gaming or even just every day stuff. And again, we aren't professionals in anyway and that these will be our own opinions." (sic)
  • "And be sure to leave in the subject whether it is a 'Mailbox Thursday' or 'Triple eh Monday' question!"

The second is via his PO box, which includes sending gift items or items of unique interest.

Let's Play[edit]

The YouTube avatar of PauseUnpause

Pause was a fan of thewinekone, early in YouTube's history. Inspired by thewinekone, Pause uploaded some number of vlogs to a previous YouTube channel, which have now been privatized.[36] Pause later uploaded Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 gameplay videos to a YouTube channel by the name of CODTurtle.[37][38][39] Pause says he was inspired to create Minecraft Let's Play videos after watching davidr64, and later Guude and Coestar.[40][41] Pause reuploaded his first ever Minecraft video to his channel on 6 October 2012.[42] For some time, Pause also had control over the YouTube channel "2bros1game", before its deletion.[43][44]

On 23 November 2011, Pause's channel became a YouTube partner.[45][46] On 30 January 2012, he announced he had been accepted into Twitch.tv's partnership program.[47] In June 2012, Pause partnered his YouTube channel with IGN.[48] In June 2013, Pause left his partnership to join BroadbandTV.[49]

Pause has been described as 'overly competitive' whilst playing online games.[50][51] "Try Hard Pause" has become an ongoing joke during Buffalo Wizards TTT videos.[52]

Mindcrack[edit]

Having been a fan of Super Hostile, Pause interview Vechs1 in August 2011. Through Vechs, Pause became friends with Cleophas, joehillssays and Zisteau. Zisteau formed Team Tunnel Rats with Joe, Cleo and Pause to participate in the second Race for Wool. It was here that Pause first met Guude.[58] Guude had previously watched Pause's 404 Challenge series and was entertained by his poor style of gameplay.[59][60][61] Pause was invited to join the Mindcrack Server by Guude on 30 October 2011,[62][63] releasing his first video from the server on 2 November 2011, titled and misspelled "Minecrack Guided Tour with Guude".[64] Pause has said he is "super happy and super grateful" and "wouldn't be in this position today" without it, particularly for the friendships developed through his membership.[41]

Pause has introduced a number of his friends to the Mindcrack community, prominently Millbee, Sevadus, and OldManWillakers (Rob). In June 2012, Pause invited Millbee to join,[65] having been friends since meeting in December 2011.[66] Sevadus was invited to join in July 2014 after familiarizing himself with the group at PAX East 2014.[67] He had been a friend of Pause's since late-2011.[68] Although Rob never joined Mindcrack (much to the disappoinment of fans), he became a close friend of the group after meeting Pause in early-2012 through Dwarves vs Zombies.[69] Rob served as an admin of PlayMindcrack, and appeared as a guest in UHC 13.

Ultimate Miner[edit]

mcgamer had been publishing a long running tournament to find the most accomplished Mindcrack player competing, which was organized in collaboration with the Minecraft community website "The Spawn" and server hosting company "Xela Servers."[70] Pause was announced as the winner of this tournament on 28 April 2012, beating 17 other players to attain the accolade.[71] As a prize for winning the championship, MC pranked him by covering his home in chests filled with Wooden Pickaxes.[72]

Buffalo Wizards[edit]

Pause met OldManWillakers in early-2012 through Dwarves vs Zombies.[69] Pause was introduced to Lords of Minecraft as King Pause soon after the servers launch.[73] He has featured consistently in Buffalo Wizards' TTT episodes since the beginning of the series in August 2014.[74] It became an ongoing joke that he was yet to join as an official Buffalo Wizard.[75] Rob has said multiple times that he planned to make Pause an official Buffalo Wizard sometime during the summer of 2015,[76][77] with another post saying he was going to join in April 2015.[78]

Personal life[edit]

In July 2012, Pause proposed he would shave his head as an incentive for viewers to raise $20,000 for Child's Play Charity during The Ultimate Zeldathon.[79] He uploaded a video showing him shaving his head after the goal was met.[80]

At PlayOnCon 2012, Pause was hypnotized during the 18+ hypnotic event on 28 July 2012. Guude uploaded a short clip showing Pause dancing erotically to LMFAO's Sexy and I Know It.[81] Pause said he was skeptical of hypnotism at first, but was "actually hypnotized."[82] Guude said he was also skeptical and thought that hypnotism was merely an act for entertainment value, but was persuaded to believe after seeing Pause so carefree[83] and unresponsive in that environment.[84]

Having met a donation goal during Phorxy's livestream for Myeloma UK, Pause uploaded a video of him waxing his left leg on 19 December 2012.[85]

Health[edit]

Pause suffers from anxiety disorder, and seasonal affective disorder during autumn and winter.[86][87][88] He says flying is a prominent cause of anxiety for him.[89][90][91] He has previously taken lorazepam[90][87] and now takes clonazepam to alleviate symptoms.[92][91] In April 2015, Pause revealed his use of medicinal marijuana for further relief.[88] His anxiety caused him to miss PAX East 2015.[93] After nearly missing MineCon 2016 for the same reason, Pause was prescribed alprazolam (Xanax).[94] Pause labels himself "a bit of a hypochondriac."[32][95]

From age 14 to 23, Pause drank multiple energy drinks per day, before attempting to quit in late-2011.[96] He has spoken of his difficulties trying to break the habit.[97][98] He has mentioned previously being a regular smoker,[99] but now only smokes during social occasions,[100] or smokes a cigar when drinking.[101]

Pause started his 30 day Wii Fit U exercise challenge on 25 July 2014, weighing approximately 121.1kg.[102] At the conclusion of the challenge, he weighed approximately 119.7kg.[103] Pause credits his inability to do heavy exercise to patellofemoral syndrome.[104][105]

Pause is 6'4" tall.[106]

Pause has a reoccurring nightmare of his teeth breaking and his jaw locking up.[107][108][109] This may have been influenced by the teeth smashing scene in The Human Centipede 2.[110][111]

Relationships and family[edit]

Pause with his son, November 2015

Pause has stated he is heterosexual,[112] but has otherwise shown to be flexible with his sexuality, developing "bromances" with Millbee[113] and VintageBeef,[114] and kissing OldManWillakers at PlayOnCon 2014.[115] During episode 1 of the N3RDFUSION Podcast, Pause jokingly referred to his sex life as "a rotating door of men".[116]

Pause met his partner Andrea (born 5 March 1984[117][118]) in 2008 at a telemarketing training course for Charter Communications[31] in Winnipeg, Manitoba, connecting via World of Warcraft.[119][30] The two started dating on 6 April 2008.[119] They became engaged on 18 December 2012,[120] though Pause says he intended to propose on 21 December 2012 (the date of a well-known apocalypse prediction).[121]

Pause's cat Navi, May 2012

Their wedding was planned for 6 April 2014,[122] but was postponed when Pause's brother could not attend.[123] Their rescheduled wedding was held on 12 October 2014 in a small ceremony in Winnipeg.[124] As a surprise, Andrea had The Legend of Zelda phrase "it's dangerous to go alone" engraved on the inside of Pause's wedding ring.[125][126] During a 18 April 2015 livestream, Pause announced he and Andrea were expecting their first child, sharing images of the ultrasound.[127][88] Their child, a boy, was born via C-section[128] on 30 September 2015,[129] weighing 9lb11oz.[128] As he has not revealed his name, Pause refers to his son as either Buster, or maskwa (Cree: ᒪᐢᑿ bear).

Pause and Andrea have had numerous pets named in reference to The Legend of Zelda characters of the same names. They have a pet cat Navi, had a hamster Link from May 2012[130] to its death,[131] and have a Siberian Husky Zelda since April 2013.[132]

Interests[edit]

Pause is a big fan of the zombie apocalypse genre and The Walking Dead franchise.[133][134][135] On 23 October 2013, he got a zombified version of Yoshi tattooed on the inside of his left forearm.[136][137]

Pause's favorite movie of all time is Garden State.[138][139][140]

Pause thoroughly enjoyed Breaking Bad,[141] and currently enjoys Modern Family.[142][143]

Pause's favorite beer is Rolling Rock.[144][145]

Pause says he could easily eat only Kraft Dinner for the rest of his life.[146]

Pause is a casual fan of the Canadian Football League[147] and the National Hockey League.[148] He supports the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the CFL,[148][149] and the Vancouver Canucks, the Toronto Maple Leafs,[150] and the Winnipeg Jets in the NHL.[148]

Social and political views[edit]

Pause uploaded a video to his channel on 18 January 2012 protesting the Stop Online Piracy Act.[151]

Pause has criticized Resident Evil 6, cutting the game disc in half with resentment towards Capcom.[152][153]

Pause says he "is not religious in any way, shape or form."[154] He supports the separation of church and state.[155] In April 2013, he described himself as agnostic.[156]

Pause believes homophobia and racism are unacceptable in modern society.[157] In July 2013, Pause tweeted disapproval of the Russian LGBT propaganda law and the increased level of violence against LGBT people that followed.[158] He tweeted support following the Marriage and Civil Partnership Act being passed in February 2014, which legalized same-sex marriage in Scotland.[159]

Pause supported the Liberal Party in the 2015 Canadian federal election.[160] On Twitter, he shared his delight with party leader Justin Trudeau becoming the Prime Minister of Canada,[161] while also criticizing the preceding Prime Minister Steven Harper.[162]

Minecraft skin[edit]

Pause's Minecraft skin is inspired by his First Nations ethnicity.[163] Since November 2014, Pause has used a 1.8 skin featuring his formal suit as the outer layer.[1][164] Pause received a cape for attending MineCon 2012 and MineCon 2013.[165]
