About

MiRai

I hate talking about myself, but hey, let’s try this. While some of you might know me as Fenril, I’ve actually used the online alias of MiRai for quite some time (10+ years) — It’s Japanese for “future.” Don’t worry, I answer to either one as my main in WoW still carries the name Fenril.

I’m an avid gamer who has been playing games since the days of the NES and I’ve always had an interest in the creative side of things; from my UI in World of Warcraft to the unique look that I try to give my videos. While I can be a grammar nazi at times, you will most likely see me misuse (or abuse) punctuation, as well as some grammar from time to time, but I will always do my best to spell things correctly. 😉

I’m not entirely a fan of having a blog site because I feel like it’s an online diary. I mean, who really wants to read this crap? That’s why I define what this site is and isn’t going to be a little further down this page.

 

Multiboxology

The Name
The name Multiboxology hit me a few years ago while I was engaged in an activity I rarely partake in — Watching television. There was a commercial that had something to do about nothing important and it mentioned a word ending in -ology; and that’s when it hit me… MULTIBOXOLOGY! Away to the computer I flew like a flash, headed over to GoDaddy to give them my cash. And Multiboxology was born… or so I thought. Having done a random search on Google for the word itself returned an actual result. Someone had already used the word as a name for their multiboxing guild in World of Warcraft and I was flabbergasted. The person who had beat me to it was DrChaos from dual-boxing and I decided to send him a PM stating that I was going to move forward with Project: Multiboxology and that I wasn’t trying to, by any means, steal the name of his guild and claim it solely as my own . He said it was “no big deal” and was okay with the fact that I was going to use it for my site… and here we are today.

The Site
This site will be a host for all of my creative work, perhaps some guides, and some of my random rants. This site will not necessarily be multiboxing-specific, but you won’t find boring blog posts about how I went shopping for some new shoes and some playa hatin’ fool tried to dis my taste in style… aight?

This site will also not be a place for me to give one-on-one assistance since both the dual-boxing and ISBoxer forums are filled with many helpful individuals who can assist with such questions. The multiboxing community, as a whole, will benefit more if questions are asked (and answered) in a more established central location such as the links I’ve just provided.

 

Videos

My passion for creating videos came after I watched numerous YouTube “tutorials” which straight up sucked — I mean complete and utter crap. Videos that were labeled as a tutorial or a guide on how to accomplish something and they were in no way helpful at all. After falling victim to videos such as these, I knew I could do it better; so, I did. While people do give me much praise for the videos that I create, I do not claim to be the best and I will be the first to tell you that my videos could be much better. I started off using Sony Vegas years back and eventually made the move to the Adobe suite where I had access to After Effects, Premiere, and Photoshop all in one. Technically everything I know has been self-taught through watching endless YouTube videos and reading guides/forums on how to accomplish whatever it is I’m trying to do.

If you want to start creating your own videos, I would probably suggest starting with Sony Vegas if you’re new. Reasons being: 1) I found it much more user friendly compared to the Adobe, and higher end, products, and 2) There are many more tutorials on YouTube pertaining to Sony Vegas compared to any other video editing software.

I would also like to say that if you want your videos to stand out from the rest and be noticed, then you’ve got to put some thought into it and you’ve got to use some creativity. You can’t just record a 20 minute instance run, increase the speed by 300% to knock it down to 7 minutes, and then slap the word “guide” on it because no one will know WTF is actually going on in your video and you’ll be wasting everyone’s time. You’re going to have to try a little harder than that.

You can find all of my available videos at either one of my YouTube channels.
