It’s been hard to keep up with stuff, but I’ve been trying. At the time of writing this, I have three series going and possibly revisiting a one off I did with Bailey months ago.
Of course, there is the main series, Mongo Smashes: Minecraft. Additionally, I am still navigating a Sim Mongo through Sims 3 and side scrolling through Limbo, an indie game. While it’s been loads of fun playing these, I just don’t have talent big name Tubers have in attracting viewers. Also, I don’t have the time. Because I’m not just doing a straight play through of a game, the recording process is hard. I hate to waste recording of gameplay when I’m not “feeling it” This is something I hope will change in the next few months with some bigger changes in the works.
It’s also very hard to pull this off with a shoe string budget. For any of you who have ever edited video with Windows Movie Maker, it’s a process. I don’t whether my PC just doesn’t have the capacity to handle the demands of the application. There are several starts and stops due to excessive processing going on in the background OR it’s just a crappy application that comes out of the box with Windows. In any case, I can’t afford to get Vegas or some other top notch editing program.
I’ve heavily relied on the editing process and music to really create a better quality product and frankly, I think I’ve done quite well in that aspect. Yeah, the comedy is a bit dull and I have a harder time proactively “making the funny” vs. reacting to something but it’s getting better. Really do check out my Sims vids for some hilarity. The pre-outro jokes added some great moments to the videos.
This one is finally finished.

I have a post in the hopper for my recent trip to Virginia and I’ll have you know, I was on the treadmill almost every night while staying in a hotel. I recently cracked the minus side of 260 and took steps to help keep trending in that direction. It’s going to be harder heading into bad weather and holidays.
That being said, I’ve upped my game by walking a mile almost every weekday on a hill behind my work. It’s about 0.2 of a mile long and I do the hill three times up and three times down. It takes the full 20 minutes to complete the circuit back to my car, so I am not caving like I would some days just circling the parking lot.
My legs hurt but I have more energy than I used to which makes for a better quality of life. I just need to avoid going nuts with the holiday food.
In case you've been wondering and I'm pretty sure you haven't... I'm fine. The posts have had a somewhat reflective, emo quality to them and that's bad. Sorry.
Maybe the weight loss is affecting my mood. Maybe it's other things. Some days it's hot and cold running meh. Next year I might clue you all in but I don't know. It's not cool. Just know, I'm fine. I'm healthy. I've got two certified professionals who can attest to that, so no worries.
Holy crap, we got a shot at the playoffs? WTF?!?!?!
