M13 Crash and Support

Posted by admin under Uncategorized

Hey, not M13 here, but Mike the web developer. I was on the tour and can verify that his accident was very real and very horrific. It was a nightmare for him and for all of us. He is in good spirits and recovering, but he has a long way to go. He is unable to update the website until he is out of the hospital and returns home where his computer is.

I’d like to ask you all to please support him through his GoFundMe campaign. He wants to express his sincere gratitude for everyone who has chipped in and supported, and it’s incredibly helpful during this difficult time.

M13′s Medical Expenses GoFundMe

I’d also like to make a note that we are having some issues with PayPal. For anyone who has donated through PayPal in the past couple of days, he’s asking that you request a refund as PayPal has frozen his account, and he can neither withdraw nor issue refunds. Please donate using the GoFundMe link above.

2014

Posted by Mordeth13 under Uncategorized

Well I had planned on making some new channels in 2013. But since I can barely find time to update my own channel….and I CAN’T find time to update my website. I guess those channels never had much of a chance of taking off.

 

But 2014 is here now. And I guess this will finally be the year that I move back out on my own. I will also continue to exercise daily….I started working out in the latter part of 2013….and other than when I do tours, I am still working out daily. I’ve lost most of my pot belly and am getting some nice definition. I’ll always be thin….I’ll never be big….but that’s fine. Strong and thin is a lot better than chubby and weak.

 

It currently looks like I’ll be moving out of my house and sharing a place with my good/best friend Donny. I plan on making some amazing videos this year….and yeah….I say that every year…..but I have a list of dozens of videos that are better than anything I’ve uploaded recently….I just need to find the time to make them. And once I move out….I’ll have that time.

 

That’s it for now. I’ll try to update more often (heard that before).

2013 is Here

Posted by Mordeth13 under Gaming, M13's Life Blogs, Uncategorized

Hey guys, M13 here. I kinda gave up on this website a bit because the forums were getting over run with spambots and one of the website owners (there’s 3 of us) has moved on and given up on me/the site (partially my fault for not doing things he wanted…..not that…..sicko).  But the forums are redone and working well again. And here I am making yet another post. I should post more here….because posts here last a lot longer than FB updates that are buried within hours.

For 2013 I want to WORK. I have all these ideas for income and I’m also starting two new youtube channels. One is gaming….which is nothing unique…..but the other will be a sort of Asian twist to what RWJ does. And yes, in the past I’ve criticized him for getting rich off other people’s videos…..but…..if it works it works. And mine will be more about the News than viral videos. And it will focus on Asia…..so not the same.

Actually the channels are already up if you want to subscribe early:

I’m not partnered with YouTube anymore. I joined one of those groups that always asks people to join them…..like Machinima, but not them. Hopefully that will make a difference. My YouTube income has gotten low…..if it were just me it wouldn’t matter. I can live easily enough off of very little. But it’s about my son. And I need to do whatever I can to make sure he has all the chances in life that I never had.

My contract on my phone runs out in a couple of months. I’m looking at getting the HTC Butterfly.  I need to use my phone calendar more to force myself into being more productive. I currently have about 5 different “jobs” and sometimes a day goes by where I just watch “The Voice” or play video games. I’m really starting to think that I shouldn’t let my son get too into video games and computers. When I was young I never had a computer……and I had so many different adventures  in my city walking around with my friends. You also can’t have 12 girlfriends in one month in this day and age with FB and all that. So sad for my son…lol.

 

Anyway…..I need to watch another episode of The Voice. Later guys.

Sept 2012

Posted by Mordeth13 under Uncategorized

Hey, today is the first day of my T.W.A.T.

I’m especially excited about this one as we have a total of 10 people. And we will be visiting a few new places that even I’ve never been to before. The weather looks like it will be fairly good and everything is looking up.

 

I am officially the exclusive Scottoiler dealer for Taiwan. I bought a large amount of Scottoilers and am going to try to get them out on the market when I get back from my tour. Hopefully the locals love them and word spreads. It’s a good product and something I’m willing to take a chance with. If you guys want to get one remember to use Mordeth13 in the “promo code” area and you get 13% off the price!  http://www.scottoiler.com/

 

As my divorce gets closer and closer I worry more and more about how my son will be raised without me there to protect him. Twice in the last week alone my wife has allowed “harm” to come to him while standing by doing nothing because she was too “embarrassed” to intervene. She’s normally a fairly good mother (disgustingly horrible wife, but an OK mother)….but I’m disappointed now.

 

Alright….got to go pick up my new HD sunglasses….I put some clear lenses in them so I can wear them at night. And my cell phone has been getting “fixed” for the last 2 weeks…and I get it back today…talk about leaving things to the last minute.

 

Wish you all the best.

I’ve been using Facebook so often that it’s hard for me to think of things to write here. I suggest you friend me on facebook if you haven’t already. Things are going good for me recently. And that’s a big deal. My life was fucking horrible just a short time ago. None of you realize how horrible it truly was….I was worried that if I let you all know how much of a depression I was in that I would lose “cool points”. So I sometimes showed my anger….but not my depression. But lately things are good. Fighting much less with the wife. My son is potty trained for 6 months now. Money isn’t as much of a worry. And I even have found a little time for gaming.

My first Taiwan Tour is coming up in just a week. I’m excited. These tours are both fun and a challenge. I’m a bit out of shape….haven’t been exercising as much as I’d like. But hopefully this summer I can change that. My 2012 Private Series is going on sale today (pre-purchase). So that’s something for me to be hopeful about as well.

 

Anyway….thanks to the few of you who still check in here. And I hope the world doesn’t end this year….cuz that would suck.

 

The End.

Hey guys. Yep, haven’t been very active with this blog. I’ve been more active with FaceBook though….so subscribe to me there if you like.

My life is very different now. My son is at school and I have a lot more free time. Being kinda lazy to be honest. Trying to get caught up on all the gaming I missed out on these past few years. I’m also been studying a new…skill…..more on that in the future.

I’ve got some good video ideas. I’ve been writing them down. And am working on a Rave Biker 3…mostly in the idea stage…but got some good ideas. I’m also toying with the idea of getting some help….perhaps hiring someone to start making some really cool stuff. After all I’m in Taiwan…where labour (even skilled labour) is cheap. Don’t worry I’ll still make my regular motovlogs. But I’ll have the odd “produced” video as well.

My son being at school is interesting. I barely see him anymore in comparison to before. He goes to school for 8 hours a day and then when he gets home it’s only a few hours before his bedtime. So I went from spending 12 hours a day with him to only 4 a day. It’s hard sometimes. But I wouldn’t change it. It’s better for both him and me. But sometimes I think about how fast he’s growing up and it truly….truly….scares me that I’m missing out on so much time with him. But on the bright side it makes me all the more happy when I do see him. You never know what you have until it’s at kindy.

It’s still winter here….or spring or whatever…..either way it’s raining all the fucking time. So even when want to make vids….I can’t. I just write them down and wait for better weather.

My Taiwan Tour is coming up: http://hobbicide.com/M13Taiwan/

I’ve got both 2012 tours more than half sold out. I’m especially looking forward to the Sept tour because I have quite a few repeat customers coming for that one….maybe as many as 6! Must be a good tour if people are doing it two years in a row….eh? EH? The new people coming for the  June tour I couldn’t give a shit about. I might actually let a local do that tour for me (kidding, kidding….but not really). I’m looking forward to the tours this year. Last year I worked most of the bugs out of the tour…and this year should be much smoother.

 

That’s it for now. Thanks for reading.

Wow, long time since my last post. Sorry about that. I should have more time since my son started school again….and this time full time. When he was one and a half he went to school mornings for 6 months until he was two. And now that he’s 3 we put him in daycare from 8 until 5. So that’s 9 hours a day that I now have “free”. I still need to spend time uploading vids, reading messages, and trying to exercise. And when I’m done with that….I often find myself tired……I think it’s part of aging (or more likely poor diet). And I’m not getting as much done as I’d like in a day. I don’t know how movie stars do it. They fly all over the world and do more in a day than we do in a week. I’m guessing they all do speed drugs like Whitney Houston. Perhaps I should start doing meth again….I promised myself I wouldn’t but if it’s for my career then that’s ok, right?

My 1000th video is looming. And I honestly wouldn’t have even mentioned it. But my subscribers seem to counting it down which puts pressure on me to do something cool for it. I wanted to do a Rave Biker 3…..but time is running out and I wouldn’t have that done by then. I’ll probably just do a mash-up. A compilation of my older vids….perhaps a time-line showing a clip from every 100th video that would be ten clips. Or perhaps every 50th being 20 clips. Just an idea.

The YouTube biking community lost a very unique and interesting biker vlogger Svengalie. I spent a few days dealing with my emotions about that. At first I took it very well…..probably because it hadn’t hit me yet….and then I was sad for a few days…..and now I’m kinda angry. He has children. If you have children….then you aren’t allowed to kill yourself, period.

My income is dropping along with my views…..but that’s due to winter. No one does motorcycle searches during February…not in most of America anyway…..and that’s where most of my views come from. But I’m confident that come spring I’ll bounce back….I have in the past. And with my son in school I’ll have more time to do some unique vids.

I’m actually trying to get my self confidence up. It takes a lot to do crazy shit in public….and being with my wife I’ve lost a lot of it. But track riding and going out dancing at the clubs has helped a lot. That’s it for now. Thank you very much for reading this.

General Update Jan 9th 2012

Posted by Mordeth13 under Uncategorized

Hey guys. Sorry I haven’t been updating much. My life from week to week is fairly mundane…..doesn’t give me a lot to write about. I’ve been going dancing at the local Filipino and Thai clubs. Been having fun and am meeting new people.

I’m talking with another video hosting site (2nd largest) and they are going to be moving my videos over to their site. I’ll still be on YouTube…I’m just “expanding”. I’m excited about that. And someone from YouTube contacted me and pointed out that on over 600 of my videos I only have 50% of the advertising working….and they’re going to enable the other half for me. So hopefully I’ll see some kind of improvement in my YouTube income.

So things seem to be going fairly well. But with America trying to control the internet in 2012…..I’m still rightfully worried. This time next year YouTube could be shut down by SOPA and I could be looking for a full time job. I don’t think I could teach again. Teaching is stressful and my wife has driven me to the point where I couldn’t handle teaching full time again. I think I’d have to try to get a job in motorbike sales or something. Sadly enough I’d probably ask if any of my viewers were hiring. Sigh.

So that’s about it. I’m hopeful, but worried…at the same time.

If I didn’t have my son my life would be sooooo different. I wouldn’t even worry about the future if he weren’t around. But with him in my life I spend a lot of time worrying about his future. You don’t know true fear until you become a parent….because all self fears are lesser than the fears one feels for a child.

Dec 10th 2011 – Life is Good

Posted by Mordeth13 under Uncategorized

Everything is still going well. My wife just went to visit some family down south and took my son with her. I had fun playing video games last night (Fri) and I’ll probably do the same today.

I actually wanted to go to the track. But it’s rainy. Limits my options. But there are some household chores that need to be done. So there’s always that….sigh.

Getting Back in the Saddle – Nov 18th 2011

Posted by Mordeth13 under M13's Life Blogs

Hello everyone. I’ve been trying to get back into a routine. Things are still going well with my wife and me…..which is a huge surprise to myself and something I wasn’t sure was possible. I’d still love to get a divorce…but at least my life isn’t hell anymore…..it’s been downgraded to a hassle.

Been playing BF3 along with some games on my PS3. There’s a game called Great Little War Game that I’m playing a lot while outdoors on my phone.

I started working out daily. I’m sweating buckets as I type this. I hope to be in better shape for when my son hits his teen years. Having a son is great motivation for improving on yourself in any way that you can.

His Brithday was on the 9th and it went well. Onlymanolos from youtube sent me some money to pay for his party which was very nice of her. Thanks for that. My son was throwing up a couple of days after his party…but there was a guest who was sick so hopefully it was just a bug he caught….we suspect he might have something wrong with his digestive system. I mentioned that in the last post didn’t I?

I picked up my new scooter and am enjoying it. It’s basically the same scooter as my old one….just newer, but none the less it has a couple of mods that make it unique and extra storage space that makes it more practical. I installed a black box with front and rear facing cameras on my scooter…so it should be interesting seeing what kind of footage I can get from that in the future.

 

That’s it for now. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
