  • Hi.

  • My name is Mark Blair and this is everything I do in a day.

  • Oh, no.

  • I live in Los Angeles, California.

  • Every day is different for me because YouTube is different every day.

  • But this is what I typically try to adhere to as far as the schedule goes.

  • The first thing I do, I want to open my eyes.

  • I just wish I was still sleeping.

  • I don't love sleep, but I enjoy sleep.

  • My alarm.

  • It gives my girlfriend PTSD.

  • It's the same alarm, its constellation.

  • It's one of the apple defaults.

  • It is just so damn annoying.

  • But it gets me out of bed.

  • I have my alarm set for 6 30 every morning I can get out of bed as early is like 6 45 That's pretty much the release that I'm out because I tryto wake up while I'm still laying down.

  • Keep my eyes open and stuff like that.

  • I snooze all the time, all the time.

  • I can waste 30 minutes just snoozing away.

  • I'll check.

  • Read it when I wake up to try to get some news in May, but for the most part, I got work to do so I just kind of get up on Adam.

  • So first thing I do in the morning's workout, 30 minutes of work out real intense.

  • Get it out of the way.

  • I work out in my home.

  • I got Shaun T on my side.

  • I do insanity beach body workouts every morning at Shaun T screaming at me to do some jump things.

  • Some push up to keep digging deep.

  • But I'm just so tired that I don't want to.

  • But I've done it for so long now that this is a routine.

  • I shower after my workout.

  • I don't know what's an average star.

  • Five minutes.

  • I don't know, however long it takes to get the sweat off.

  • I gotta get my dog.

  • Chicken knows the routine.

  • She comes out with me when I wake up.

  • I let her on the back yard and that she comes, lays down, waits for me to do my weird jumping movements.

  • She was just look at me and be like us Dad being stupid, jumping all over the place, and then I'll go get a shower in that she knows it's walk time, so I take her and then my girlfriend's dog Henry, and they take him out for a walk.

  • We try to do mornings and evening walks.

  • If we can't get an evening walk ill, just do mornings.

  • But, um, maybe like 15 minutes just around the block, a little bit.

  • Dog breakfast.

  • It's breakfast.

  • Time for the pups.

  • I get them their food.

  • I give them their multi vitamin.

  • I put a little bit of salmon oil in there.

  • Sarah doing that because I've heard it's good for them.

  • So just a little drizzle of salmon oil.

  • They like it.

  • It's like gravy.

  • Then my breakfast, usually eggs or something like that.

  • I like to take my time with breakfast because it allows me time to think about what I need to do.

  • I've been trying to keep track my meals, so there's a new thing.

  • I try to keep track of everything I eat just to be conscious of it.

  • I'm not trying to lose an incredible amount of weight.

  • I just like being on top of things around.

  • Eight o'clock is let my video goes up.

  • S O.

  • You know, I can check comments on that.

  • I could make sure that it went up okay, If there's a problem.

  • I can go address the real quick, but usually I get those done the night before I started to.

  • Anyway.

  • I didn't used to do that.

  • I used to wake up even earlier, get the video for that day that morning.

  • I don't do that anymore.

  • Very unhealthy.

  • It's not a clock.

  • That's when my team will start bothering me.

  • I said, Team, I don't really work with them on a day to day basis.

  • I'm talking about my manager, agent, assistant, lawyers, all those people.

  • YouTube is like my territory.

  • I work.

  • My editor works just to make the videos ago on YouTube.

  • That's basically just me.

  • My team is working on the deals for bigger projects.

  • Help me coordinate a heist.

  • Marc Blair stuff anything bigger than just you too?

  • That's what my M boxes and text messages air reaching quadruple digits now.

  • No, I I'm very bad about that.

  • I'm not a completion ist When it comes to those kinds of things, I am all over.

  • The police sometimes decide.

  • I'm gonna clear out my whole inbox and then never do it again for life.

  • My assistant will message me saying like Hey, you forgot X Y Z and of course, I've forgotten X y Z, because I wasn't thinking about X y Z, so I gotta get on top of that.

  • That's usually my 9 to 10 to 11 dependent.

  • If I had a meeting or a phone call that I need to do some days on live stream with my friends, some days I have recording sessions with my friends.

  • If it's like Monday to Wednesday, usually that's recording time.

  • 11 to about three or four o'clock is recording time like one video could take that entire block, depending on what it is or if I'm being efficient about it.

  • And I'm recording this game stuff, you know, I could get like 345 Video's done so long as I could get one video up a day.

  • I'm happy.

  • So by the time this is out my second I've been recording like crazy for that seven videos for one Channel seven videos for the other miscellaneous.

  • Extra videos I need to do for prom owes Brandi.

  • Lt's stuff like that.

  • 14 or more a week.

  • I don't have a planning process.

  • It's It's very much just on the fly.

  • When I sit down, say, 11 o'clock to record all the research.

  • I would be like what in the game has come out cool thing that people want to see what my friends want to play If we're doing a group recording.

  • To be perfectly honest, I don't play games on my own anymore.

  • Just because I don't have time and gaming is like less of what I do.

  • Less than half of the video content of record is about games, maybe like a few hours a day.

  • Some like that.

  • I have in a 73 as my main camera just because I think it looks really nice.

  • It's very easy to use.

  • I like my lighting to be nice.

  • I'm not an expert at lighting, but at least I would liketo have some dynamics.

  • Dynamics is, um, to the lighting my editors in Portugal.

  • His name's Lixian.

  • Amazing.

  • He might be one of the best editors on YouTube.

  • Far he's an animator by trade, and so when I asked him to read it, I thought that would be like a downgrade because he's on artist in his own right.

  • But he was so excited to do it, and he's taken it to this new level.

  • I make all the things I take that as a point of pride.

  • Sometimes I'm not able to put much effort or pizazz in him as I want to, but that's my nightly ritual.

  • Is getting the video for the next day doing the thumbnail, making sure all the metadata is done perfectly?

  • I don't want to change it because a CZ my girlfriend knows I'm a fiddler, like I love tweaking things.

  • It's why I'm always pushing to do different things on YouTube is because I can't do the same thing.

  • When a heist with Mark Taylor came out, you know, I was just inspired to do it because we've done one of those before on interactive story, and this one was intense.

  • I wanted to do figure than I've done before, and I wanted to really impress that I was gonna make one of the best YouTube originals possible.

  • That was my goal, not out of egotistical nous nous.

  • But, you know, I just wanted to make the best I could be, and I knew I could make something good.

  • Those days were rough.

  • 12 to 14 hour days, you know, five days a week, and then I would have to go home, record a video edited and uploaded for my channel, which could take, like, two hours to four hours, so really intense days.

  • But you know, I loved it.

  • I like those days when I'm just totally exhausted at the end of it.

  • I like focusing all my attention on making something I don't know.

  • I just find it very fulfilling.

  • It's unhealthy.

  • Don't lose sleep.

  • I watched a very scary documentary and presentation about losing sleep.

  • It's deadly.

  • Get your sleep very important.

  • I procrastinate just the same as everybody else does, like I'm not immune to it.

  • But I know that because I have such limited time and can only do so much.

  • I'll stop for like, a meal break.

  • I'll come downstairs just to grab a snack or something like that.

  • I'll take 30 minutes here there, but if it's like crunch time than I have, but I think I try not to go past five, but you can only keep up doing videos for so long.

  • You can only like maintain that level of energy when the camera's on for so long.

  • Once was five o'clock and thinking about dinner.

  • I like to cook.

  • I just don't have the time for it.

  • If I If I plan ahead, I can whip up a recipe.

  • But a lot of my stuff is just like stick it in the oven for two hours and I don't have two hours to wait.

  • So if I go out, I know that it's gonna take too long.

  • So I always try to get things ordered or just whip up a quick meal.

  • And when I say a quick meal, I mean quickly dirty, like canned, didn't team or stew levels of meal.

  • I love that kind of stuff is the stuff I grew up with.

  • But if I'm trying to eat a little better, I like order from, say, panini kabob and grill like just get a nice kebab.

  • Salmon, green peppers, onions, rice, nice salad.

  • But that's a recent development.

  • I Normally it's always crap.

  • I will tear through a block of cheese.

  • It is perfect cause I could bring it up to my desk.

  • I could just chop it up and eat as I'm working.

  • It's disgusting.

  • Let's say after dinner, it's about seven o'clock.

  • If we're doing the evening walk it would be then and then it's following up with e mails that I forgot that this is really hit or miss or whether I'm gonna respond or not.

  • It just depends on if it's project I'm really passionate about.

  • If it's something that I know can wait, even if they say it can't wait, I've usually push it off for a little longer.

  • This is where I would you watch some TV with Amy or not TV.

  • But Netflix wants some YouTube videos, maybe like spending our to doing that like 8 30 ish.

  • I try to go for a run.

  • I've been running up to an hour.

  • I hate running.

  • I hated running, but then a little shout out to Nike run club.
