Talking to Myself About Games, Movies, and Books

Solo, round 2

Solo show numero 2 and I feel much more organized! Let it be known though, I recorded an entire OTHER show before I recorded this one. It was so all over the place and unorganized, I decided to ditch it and start over. I'm glad because it's amazing how much more focused you get when you write yourself a little plan to stick to. Organization. Who knew?!

Things Discussed

I talked numerous topics in the 30 minutes I allowed myself. I'm quite pleased, and you should be impressed if you know me! Anyway, here's a rundown in case you want to know what you're getting yourself into. 

Games - Pokémon Legends Arceus, Horizon Forbidden West, Animal Crossing, and LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

Books - (briefly talked about) The Humans by Matt Haig (Book | Audiobook), The Midnight Library also by Matt Haig (Book | Audiobook), and Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir (Book | Audiobook)

Movies - Ron's Gone Wrong (Disney+), Encanto (Disney+), Free Guy (Disney+), and The Adam Project (Netflix)

No. I don't believe that I talked about all this stuff either! But I guess I did.

001 | Talking to Myself About Games and Life

It's Not My Ffff

I've been having this itch to record something, but at the same time, I didn't really want to commit to a date with someone. And so, my first solo show is born!

Will there be more? Maybe. Only time, and my laziness, will tell. 

I went on about a few things I've been meaning to talk about. And I feel like it would've been a much greater discussion with...myself... If I would have planned it out better. I rambled a few times, but I had fun editing so it should be an interesting listen. Next time I do this I'll definitely have more of a plan, and maybe, just maybe, a little more confidence.

Things Discussed

While talking to myself I went off course a tad. But I think I stuck to the main thing I wanted to bring up. Gaming has been a part of me for a very, very long time. I always want to make time for it, I always get excited for advances in the industry, I still love the hobby and don't plan on quitting. Buuuuut, that doesn't mean I have to always be excited about stuff. I went on talking about my struggles with finding time to game, and when I do find the time, how hard it is to be excited for new games these days. 

This is a subject I KNOW I'll bring up again. And I look forward to being much more prepared next time

014 | Pre-E3 Game Talk w/ Beardy

E3 HYPE TRAIN GO CHOOOOOOO

In true Future Monkeys fashion, Los is joined again by Beardy, and they talk games! They discuss Mass Effect and how little progress they've made on it, and then get into what they're predicting for E3. Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo are all discussed, and Los hopes for number one next-gen killer app that the Big N can announce that would bring balance to the Force.

013 | Vaccinated Livin’ w/ Beardy

BACK TO NORMA... Oh, wait, not quite

Beardy and Los are back again! Talking about our new lives as vaccinated citizens! And as it turns out, it's not that much different LOL. We catch up with things that have been going on, how we've been, and talk about getting vaccinated. We kinda go into a tangent about our disagreements with how things have progressed and how difficult it is as people with families who cannot be vaccinated, but what can ya do? Besides, you know, act like the pandemic is still happening for a lot of people.

012 | Everything But Games w/ Elaine

Other Stuff to Do

After a needed mini mental break, I'm finally mustering the strength to get this show posted. Ridiculously huge apologies to Elaine! I feel horrible, I do. But trying to move forward, let's keep going.

Episode 11, if you never heard it, was probably one of my favorite shows I've ever recorded. I'm so happy to have had Elaine on these back to back shows. If you can recall, we discussed a few very real topics. It felt as if it took a toll after the conversation, so episode 12 was great to chase it with as it's much more laid back.

We talked about fun stuff. I tried to not discuss gaming as that's our go-to hobby that many already know about. I wanted to focus instead on other things we enjoy doing. We talked about books, what we' enjoy reading, what we're reading now, all that jazz. Also got into our favorite T.V. shows and discussed what we love so much about them. Then we got into snacks! The most important subject as far as Elaine goes, and for good reason. Tune in to find out why!
