Update II: The Desolation of Videos

Message

Recently we have been killing it compared to my earlier videos. Within a month of restarting this channel I’ve gotten 3,000 views in a month, Two videos got over 1,000 in 24 hours. I just want to thank people for helping me out, I’ve had a lot of collaboration with people a lot bigger than me who have been willing to come on the podcast but mainly it has been a passion for writing and animated tv shows that really pushed forward my view and sub count.

Series

Writers Perspective

Writers Perspective is a show I definitely want to push on with, evolving and making more entertaining as I grow. I usually hate every video I do but this weeks video on vagueness I’ve fallen in love with. I think I did pretty well but there’s definitely still a lot of time for improvement.

Secret Project

I have something VERY special planned that I think’s gonna blow up. Planning has been going on for the last month and filming starts next month. I’ve borrowed photography level recording equipment (minus a mic currently) and I’ve got a camerawoman. Hopefully, it goes well.  It’s been something I’ve been wanting to do for years now.

Podcast

We finally had Gerardo Sandoval as well as Cathy Tooley on the podcast recently. Newer guests are coming into contact every day so keep reading for updates.

Collaborations

Podcast guests

We’ve had some excellent authors come on, two pretty accomplished authors, Dr. Gerardo Sandoval, best known for his book The God Molecule and Cathy S. Tooley, author of The Education System is Broken. We also had the pleasure of having Jenn Landon-Neubauer on episode two so we could discuss the anthology we’re both working on. More update on that book soon. Michael was also a fantastic guest for episode one and I’m hoping to maybe have him back in the future.

Animation

If you didn’t see my video “Trying voice acting for the first time” I got to voice a pumpkin mob boss in an animation that will be up on youtube in the following weeks.

Not really much else to say while we wait for more stuff to happen. Work is going well, my only real issue is no income at the moment but hopefully, that’ll change soon.

First post: Update time!

Hey guys, GLP Matty here. Thought I’d maybe start doing updates on my ‘professional career’ if you will here on the website. Talking about the channel, upcoming books and so on. I don’t really know how blogs work or if this even is a blog but anyway, I’m gonna start posting updates on the GLP Matty site so people actually start to use it. So anyway since I failed to make a video on the subject so far, heres a few updates:

 

The Podcast

The podcast series is going well, tonight I should hopefully be interviewing Dr Gerardo Sandoval. He works with the Colorado River Toad and uses its sacred medicine of 5-meo-dmt to treat people all around the work. His work is not only important but extremely interesting and I’m looking forward to speaking with him.

Later on this week I am ecstatically excited to announce the I will have the opportunity to sit down and talk with Hamilton Morris. His show on Viceland Hamitons Pharmacopeia is an incredible show that follows him around the world as he tries different psychedelics and talks with people about them and their effects. He also has many interesting books, web series and a whole bunch of other psychedelic themed entertainment for you to enjoy and it’ll be great to have him on the show.

There are some other guests coming up after those two but I’ll wait a while before announcing the others until I know for sure what’s happening with everyone. As much as I love psychedelics I’d like to make sure that one subject isn’t the majority of season one. I’m hoping to have ten episodes for season one at least although if things keep going this smoothly I’ll maybe keep it going till 20/30 episodes are completed.

Also, I totally want to have M.A. Larson on if I can, that’s a snowball’s chance in hell though.

Writing

While I do love youtube my main career is writing so I can actually support myself doing something I love. Currently, I am working on an upcoming indie video game. Personally, I’m just doing it for the experience but the game is looking great so far and I’m looking forward to people playing it when it’s done. My job involves all around writing such as story, item descriptions, dialogue, jokes and other important roles.

Even more importantly, one of my short stories will be published soon in an anthology. Most likely the beginning of next year by the looks of it. All of the money made from the book should be going to charity if what all the authors discussed is still going ahead. A name for the book has not been decided but my story has been titled “The Phantoms of Glenkos.” It’ll make more sense when you read the story.

The only thing left to say is that I’m currently writing my first full novel, although I won’t disclose anything else until it’s nearly done because I feel the idea is quite unique and I’d hate for it to be stolen.

Overall I think that’s all I can say, for now, I hope you all enjoy the videos and be sure to give me suggestions on what to create content on in the comments.
