(Also seeing a psychiatrist and waiting on a consultation with a surgeon about whatever the hell's going on in my abdomen, the point is things are moving)
I'm going to have to briefly disappear while the computer's in transit and the internet thing is getting worked out, which could be soon or early next month--I don't know exactly, as there's a lot of other things going on in the background--I just know I'm getting out. I'd like to get out ASAP, but gas is expensive, it's the end of the month and there's a mold situation to deal with, sooo
This is hopefully the last call--the last rattling of the cup, my last outstretched hand, my last round of shouting about Paypal and Venmo. If you can spare the help, I appreciate it, if not, no big. I'll live, I'll make it, shit'll be alright. Things are working out. Slowly, but they're getting there. Very, very fucking slowly, but they're getting there.

I'm also not showing up totally empty handed, I guess? I don't know if this qualifies as appropriate filler or not but: for years now I've been tinkering with several YouTube accounts, fiddling with stuff like AI voices and trying to figure out a way to make some side money. I always come up with my own ideas and write my own scripts, but robots have better vocal delivery than me IRL so I've just been using AI voice tech as a sort of social prosthetic. A year ago, AI voices weren't great, and I was pretty bad at making videos, and while I learned a lot nothing really came of it.
So then like three days ago I started pumping out some mostly jokey Mario shorts (both for science and as a way to vent), one of them hit 7k views and I got like 70+ subscribers off of it (the number is still going up), and while I normally wouldn't be like "hey look at my Mario shitposts" I did, to reiterate, actually write it all myself so if you miss the days of Morgenstern doing bizarre Mario-based projects, I uhhh I got somethin for ya I guess
I don't think the tastes are gonna line up because it's a very different thing from MDA, but the more I thought about it the more I figured it was weird to just NOT mention it here when I'm damn sure planning to use it to advertise MDA later (assuming I can make number even bigger). I also left my terrible travel videos from last year on the channel, in case you want to compare and contrast the worksmanship like some kind of weirdo (the 2022 travel videos are not good, I made them to try and play the algorithm and it did not work don't actually watch those just stick to the Mario stuff) (or ignore all of it as it's pretty cringe)
(jesus christ why am I posting this)
Oh yeah also Imgur is going to start shutting off old images soon, as of May 15 any "unused" or "inactive" images not tied to an account may suddenly stop working. You should be aware of this for your own shit but also there's a good chance some random images on the BiM or MDA layout are hosted on Imgur for some reason, so keep an eye out after the 15th and let me know if you spot anything broken. One more time for the people in the back

Thanks for everything, and thank you for your patience, I know I'm a lot to go through but I'm trying to be worth it
small edit: oh and if you haven't read Blood is Mine, the series that leads into MDA, that's also a thing
