Hey hey, folks!  Lumpz the Clown here and I just got done editing the FIRST HALF of my Silent Hill 2 LP!  In this series, I decided to step up my own editing game, but to also consume less resources in the process.  For a lot of newcomers to iMovie or any editing platform for that matter, we tend to use shit we don’t need, such as titles, unnecessary cuts/additions, etc. Doing so puts a lot of strain on my poor little Mac Mini, so I’ve upped the quality WHILE reducing resources and I GUARANTEE YOU WILL SEE THE DIFFERENCE!

For this LP, I chose to record it all in ONE SITTING, edit the raw clip into portions, and deliver them right to your eye sockets in timed doses!  This is done through scheduled publishing via YouTube.  How did I get it?  A ways back, I attempted monetization, then decided the time wasn’t right and pulled the plug.

The result?  I now have the ability to schedule my videos for publishing!  For anyone who wishes to utilize this feature, you could either wait for YouTube to give you the okay, or you can try what I did and turn monetization on then off!  It worked for @ReplayAbility and it could work for you!  Just helping out my fellow YouTubers!  Consider it a public service!

Since I’ve joined Gaming Rebellion, my own blog has been sorely neglected, but I vow to change that!  I have some excellent articles and gamer-interest pieces heading your way, so stay tuned!  No…I WILL NOT be discussing #GamerGate or any of the horseshit associated!  This blog will serve as not only my own getaway from all the vitriol being shot in all directions on the interwebs, but also for YOU as well!  THIS clown hasn’t forgotten what it’s like to be a gamer AND a decent human being that respects the minds of others!

If you haven’t noticed, I’ve started a more assertive marketing campaign for all of my internet landing points!  This comes with new art, promotions, collaborations and ALL AROUND GAMER GOODNESS!  I feel like I’ve been swimming in negativity for the last month or so, and now it’s time to shake that shit off and get back to basics!

I will be registering my domain name here in the next week or so, and I’m SUPER PUMPED to get it there!  Also, a few days ago, a good friend of mine and I were discussing the prospect of a directory page that will point to the pages of some of our gamer cohorts, but as for now, the plan is simply in the incubation stage.  It may or may not happen, but I, personally, would like to help out the community some more by doing my part to help them get out there!

Finally, I have been playing around with the concept of a horror story series which will be ALL original.  When I was a child, I used to have extremely vivid nightmares that would leave other kids with stopped hearts and bleached skin!  Vivid dreams have always been a part of my reality, tell you the truth!  It is now time to immortalize those nightmares and share them with all of you…ALL COMPLETE WITH ORIGINAL ART and NARRATED BY YOURS TRULY!  If I get done with the rest of Silent Hill 2’s editing (which I hope to knock out in the next 12 hours), I will be able to get to work on this exciting new concept and bring SOMETHING NEW to the channel!  Even if I miss my intended Halloween deadline, I still plan on enacting this feature, so STAY TUNED!

Well, this has been my biggest post to date, and I’m excited that I am able to share just a TEENSY bit of what I have in store for all of you!  LUMPZ THE CLOWN OUT!
