Matthew's Vlog

I had posted potential bribes for people who would review my Lore article here. Sayana was kind enough to ask if her review reward could be me posting a video blog covering one of two subjects; the Art of Seduction or why I chose to make the sort of character that I did. While I don't have a webcam, I do have desktop recording software, so I thought I might discuss the Art of Seduction in a way that Matthew would if he was a modern, real-life person.

A Powerpoint.

I really enjoyed this. xD
Really informative as well. Your bit about the "do"s and "don't"s of seduction was really insightful.

<3 Robert Greene, he notices so much about a person's psychology - I may or may not have a copy of The Concise 48 Laws of Power written by him. Though I agree that it's not a universal view of the entire art.

Still, interesting stuff. The powerpoint made me expect some elevator music to suddenly chime in though. :P

Glad you liked it, Keene.

The 48 Laws book is actually what led me to this particular book. It is really interesting, though somewhat depressing at moments. You are right though, it is a pretty insightful look at psychology.

Thanks Matthew,

That was really informative and enjoyable to listen to. You have a nice speaking/presentation voice. I also liked how you included respecting your fellow writers. Even though I think it should be a given, in every situation, I can definitely see that lines might get fuzzy if someone is trying really hard to use their high level seduction skill. Thanks again =)

I burst out with a hearty Hah! so many times because of how spot on you were. Most exceptionally done, as always.

I appreciate the kind words and grudgingly deal with the hashtag. I may make another one later to expand upon some of the topics, or talk about something else. I actually need practice with making these sorts of videos.
