March Update *Special*
Updated: Jan 31
In light of the self isolation and the quarantine I will be announcing the following. 1) I will be pausing my Patreon and not accepting donations until further notice.
a) I feel that people should better spend their resources on family and doing things that they feel would better suite their needs such as self care.
2) I will continue to work on videos in the background.
a) As most of you know I have a primary job, and I and my family will be fine. I am a salaried wage worker and my wife works in a relatively safe field, so we will weather this storm okay and will do our best to help our neighbors friends and family.
b) Uploads may take longer than normal. I am currently in the midst of re-encoding old trailers for MTG, they are fun to watch and I have also gone a head and uploaded the MTG Arena music to my playlist >HERE<. 3) If you need help with anything don't hesitate to ask, I will do what I can to help everyone, whether it be from driving to the store (if in my local area) to helping with editing.
4) Most importantly listen to the officials. I know it sucks having to be cooped up at home all the time but it really is for the best. I read a story today that broke my hear about a mother in N.J. that died shortly after her two children.
This virus is serious, this is not a joke, I wish it were, I wish the hysteria was fake. It's Not. Protect yourself and protect your family. You can do this in a number of ways, which most of you have already heard. a) Wash Your Hands. Sing happy birthday to yourself or the chorus of a song, but you want to do this for 45 sec to 1 minute,
b) Stay Inside, order food online for delivery, or if you must go out protect yourself. Masks' have been proven to be ineffective so that will be up to you but gloves and hand sanitizer.
c) Shower regularly, I say this because it can get on the skin but also a shower will help you feel better, which is important as cabin fever starts to set in.
d) Stay Busy, Stay Fit, Do some work outs, clean out that closet you been meaning to for years. Stay busy. Take up a new hobby, I know I have a lot of plastic model kits to assemble from years ago I will start looking at doing. In conclusion I will leave you with this. Stay Safe. I wish you all the best and thank you for your support. We will be fine.
