The morning, of course, was spent teaching women's kickboxing and self defence classes. The afternoon I had planned on cleaning the house, but I just couldn't.
So, instead, I decided to replay the first part of The Last of Us up until we left off in the last live stream. I kept replaying the game play in my head, thinking of how I could have done it better. So, yesterday, I took the opportunity to play a bit to see if I could actually improve.
And I could! I kicked arse this time around! I'm really sad I didn't record it as evidence, but I promise I did really well. Also, I didn't cry this time around, so I improved on two fronts.
Sunday was fantastic, though busy. In the morning, I played some Borderlands with my kung fu brother Jon. It was a great session, and though we played for the full two hours, we managed only three more episodes of CoOpted because I was a ninny and forgot to keep an eye on the time. So the next three episodes of the series will be longer than normal. Oh well!
I spent the afternoon with my dad. We did what we do; dinner and a movie. We saw Logan. I cannot recommend this movie enough. This was what a Wolverine movie should be. Yes, before you ask, I cried. I was really happy with the way they handled the old man Logan story line. It's definitely worth the hype.
We had dinner after and then I returned home to do some video editing.
And this is where everything started to fall down.
As it turns out, the audio recording for the CoOpted game play didn't quite work. The commentary and the game audio are usually combined in the final product, but alas that was not the case this time. Also, the commentary cut out for some reason in one part. Trying to get the commentary to match the game play was a special kind of problem. I'm very glad that in addition to the (usually) combined game audio and commentary, the software also records them separately, so all was not lost with the glitch.
After editing all three episodes of CoOpted, I turned to editing today's episode of Nights at the Round Table, and discovered that the last four odd minutes of the episode had been cut off. So, that was fun. Luckily, audio is recorded separately for that as well, and though there is just a blank screen, viewers will at least get to hear the rest of what we had to say. Not all was lost.
It was a frustrating evening, though, and resulted in a much later night than I intended.
Today, I have no time to stop.
I'm getting back on track. There is a manuscript I'm beta reading that I've had for far too long, and I need to get it finished and sent back to the very patient writer. I have two books to read, and one must be done by Sunday, when I have to hand it back to the owner. And then I have my own writing to get back to.
First, though, I have to go back into YouTube and fix everything up nicely so that things can run without me for a bit.
And on that note, I have to go and get to work.
