  • we were going down on an amazon cruise in peru  oh really remember that my mom's a really good  

  • chess player so i feel like i should have gotten  you should have had a few more lessons from her  

  • okay so before we get too far into this  video i want to thank this week's sponsor  

  • which is skillshare and if you haven't heard  of skillshare yet they are basically an online  

  • learning community with thousands of inspiring  classes for creators and it's a place where you  

  • can explore new skills deepen existing passions  and get lost in creativity they have numerous  

  • topics to choose from including illustration  design photography video freelancing and more  

  • so personally i've been taking a video class and  it is called grab your audience enthralling intros  

  • for your videos and it is a class taught by jr  alley who's a young videographer from toronto and  

  • he is really talented so i was super excited when  i came across his class what i've been learning  

  • is that when you start off a video you really  only have like 15 seconds to capture people's  

  • attention so basically what he talks about is how  he creates his intros and he takes you through the  

  • whole process he shows you his timeline he talks  about things like how he prepares his shot list he  

  • talks about sound design visual effects how he  edits so that's something that i'm going to be  

  • trying to do in my videos moving forward another  cool thing about skillshare is that it's curated  

  • specifically for learning meaning there are no ads  and they're always launching new premium classes  

  • and it's less than 10 dollars a month with an  annual subscription so the first 1 000 of our

  • oh oh

  • hello and welcome welcome back to the doom went  for a nice little jaunt around the premises  

  • they have a cool little trail yeah so it starts  off as stone around the perimeter of the house  

  • and then it actually forms into a proper  proper trail proper path through the woods  

  • and then it's a steep section on the way  back oh geez cheers cheers we earned these  

  • how often do we have soda rarely since it  was available it was left for us we thought  

  • it's so nice and ice cold chucked it in the  freezer as opposed to the fridge that's the secret  

  • yeah i feel like we're in mars you know like  staying in this cool futuristic dome (geodome) it  

  • just has a bit of a spacey vibe to it feels like  we're colonizing another planet mars you know what  

  • it makes me think of i listened to this really  cool podcast a few years ago it was called the  

  • habitat i believe and it was about six scientists  um and they're kind of like just testing them to  

  • see what it would be like for them to live in  these domes (geodesic dome) in a self-contained  

  • habitat essentially and kind of like pretend that  they're on mars but really i think they're in  

  • hawaii and they're just like locked up for a year  in this habitat oh that's quite the experiment  

  • i know a bit of a social experiment it was  a very interesting year i'd recommend that  

  • podcast actually if you guys haven't heard of  it that sounds really good the habitat i loved  

  • it it's only six episodes but i was hooked  so we still got board games on the agenda  

  • um can't wait to go and roast the marshmallows  a bit later yes and i have a feeling that the  

  • property is going to be lit up really nicely  once it gets dark all you gotta do is set me free

  • can't you see come on little  girl all you gotta do is

  • set me free come on

  • all right so we've moved over to chess i hope  you guys enjoyed the dancing with it's funny  

  • as fun as it was to dance with marky the moose  yeah he tired us out so now we're uh now we're  

  • playing board games how did the first chess  game oh my gosh it was check me sam cornered me  

  • in every single direction anddidn't even see it coming i i don't  

  • i'm not that good at chess to be honest  i just think i think you're pretty good  

  • i don't know i i can i can just i'm a  little bit patient i guess or or strategic

  • who's gonna eat me there nobody really what about  your tower oh i think it's checkmate no i think  

  • okay can you no no no no no no it's you know what  that that that match was a war of attrition we we  

  • basically we were taking out each other's  high-ranking pieces our queens were off the  

  • board really quickly and i just somehow  managed to gobble up a lot of your pawns  

  • yeah that was you you played well like yeah and  you know what's your best game i got blocked like  

  • i had so many pawns that were blocked like  eventually i just started killing the mob  

  • yeah yeah yeah no other pieces to go yeah  yeah that's the best game you played for sure  

  • yeah i'm impressed that's cool that was a good  game good game high five marshmallow time okay
