Youtubin' it: The [bass] Status Report: February 10, 2016 (816AS)

Hello Gang!

It's been a dog's age since I've posted an update to the site. We're well passed "overdue" and into "collecitons" so let me catch you up.

In 2015 I decided to really focus my attention on my Gaming Youtube Channel. This was because I felt that with the new games like GTA5 and Fallout4, along with classics like TF2 and Freelancer, I really had a tremendous amount of material to work with and had a chance to really make the channel successfull. The time was right.

It had nothing to do with the company I was working for, AECOM, cutting my pay 32% a few months after we had our second child.Though they said I was doing a great job, they needed to make more money. (Yes, I have since found a new job. I hear they're cutting holidays now. ) It had nothing to do with some desperation to try to get the books balanced.

This is a good thing, becuase I think the channel is up to a blazing $2 a month. Mostly based on the success of this video:

I cannot fathom why this one has taken on such a life. But I'm not complaining.

This one is pretty hot as well, and it makes a bit more sense:

In that one I give some great game tips...which are completely wrong as I found out later.

I still consider it a success though, because there are people who are regularly watching the new videos. (I'm looking at you, Bill Billings. Don't go changing!)

Success or not, making these videos is simply what I like to do, so you can count on me to keep it up as I can. I'm going to focus on the Tough Break Update Videos through March, and I'm going to try to play some more Freelancer, as I'm really getting back into that groove.

Speaking of which, [bass] is set up as a faction on Star Citzen if you're there. We'll keep an eye on it and see how it comes together.

I'm not abandoning GTA5 and Fallout4, but a man can only play so many video games. (It's that whole RL vs FL thing—which will make no sense to you unless you are a long time member of [bass].)

I also want to keep this site better up to date and get back to doing some writing. The book has stalled on me for a while, so I might go back to doing some fan fiction here just to get those parts of my brain going again.

Look for more updates here and on all the [bass] social media platforms. Oh, and one final video plug. Check out this TF2 video where I actually discovered something cool at 14:35 in the video:

You could say I...fell into it?

This is the Black Knight. Have a great night.
