In addition, Schommer is actively involved with YouTube content creation as a top contributor and maintains a presence on forums to help other creators. During the live chat, he shares stories about his path to creating a successful YouTube channel and offers tips and advice for other creators.

An avowed nerd and gamer as well, Schommer talked about his affection for geeky T-shirts and described his early days as a programmer, when the first program he wrote was an NPC generator based on tables in the back of the AD&D Dungeon Master’s Guide.

One of the cocktails Schommer described is a Star Trek themed drink commemorating Mr. Spock, the iconic character portrayed by Leonard Nimoy. Dubbed Amok Thyme in honor of the original series’ second season premier in which Spock suffers through his first infliction of pon farr. Recipes for other cocktails are included in the original live chat description on YouTube, and of course viewers can visit Common Man Cocktails for more creative cocktails.
