Taking a Spiritual Journey During Lent

             I know I do not talk about my religious side of my life but I wanted to share with you guys that this year I have decided to take a spiritual journey this year during the Lenten journey over the course of the weeks. I have obviously given up chocolate and junk food and fasting too a lot especially on the 2 no meat days that are my no meat days which is usually Wednesday and another day which is normally whatever my dad chooses normally so it does depend on the day. Also since Lent has begun, I have also gone to Friday night stations of the cross to add on to the list and I have also trying to go to church during the week but with my recent sleeping habits, I have failed that part of my Lenten journey but planning on fixing that and getting to a weekday mass down the line too.  I am trying to get closer to the Lord during this Lent Season. I really want to get closer to him as I went into a dark place from 2016 - 2018 with everything going wrong for me and Chris B On The Web and also friendships going south on me, has made me realize, I need to be more patient with things and it's true, I have a long way to go to being a more patient person.

                 I know come Easter I want to be a different person then I was from the start, a much more happier person. I am ready the daily readings and if I have doubts, I open up the Bible. This spiritual journey will bring be closer to God and on Holy Week which is the week that leads up to Easter is when I do a lot of traveling, the Tuesday is the Chrism Mass in Toronto, then Church for Holy Thursday, Friday for Good Friday service which we go back to Toronto for that and Easter Vigil which we also are in Toronto. So that week, we will be in Toronto 3 times which is fine with me but the week after that I'm back in there yet again. I really wanna make this a very spiritual journey for me and so far I have done fairly well and I am going to continue on my journey as I have so far done well and I have learnt new tricks to help me through my everyday life.


Happy St. Patrick's Day!

            I Gotta say this, Happy St. Patrick's Day! I know I am not Irish but I do indulge this day and made a tradition with my dad to go down to the pub for a whiskey and beer to celebrate and probably is the 1 time I really have more then 1 drink but no more then 2 drinks honestly as I cannot hold my alcohol as I end feel like I feel woosey after 2. Anyways the tradition continues each and every year. My dad and I always go down the hill from us to the Bulldog for Irish Whiskey, Jamieson brand and also a beer. However I had two whiskey's today as I didn't feel like a beer and a whiskey. I have had 2 beers before but that was still when I was still working at the book store which isn't even open anymore as they closed down both of their stores. Anyways I am a social drinker and will drink special times of the year and this is one of those times of the year I go with my dad down and once and a while we will pop down for a beer as well but not too often as my schedule as you know is busy as it is being behind the microphone quite a lot. 

           We had a ton of fun. No entertainment mind you, however they had Irish music going but we figured out that the entertainment comes later which would be a busier place then it was this afternoon when we were down there. Anyways besides the drinks, we also had a small bite to eat and you are definitely wondering what I had is I had Montreal Smoke Meat which is well known in Montreal. I also had fries with it and it was very delicious, the fries were a little over salty but still very good to me and I ate it regardless. I know this post is very late as I got busy with other things and amazing things happening around the studio which in time you will know but all and all, I had a great time and a great day and I hope you all had a great St Pattie's Day as well and blog will be back right on schedule tomorrow.

This Week Hasn't Been a Great Week For Me...

               This week hasn't been the greatest week for me in the way of Chris B On The Web. This week, I feel like I have let myself down, let YOU guys the fans down with not following my podcast schedule this week. Yea my mood this week has been up and down and been feeling like why am I doing this if I cannot handle the scheduling side of things but I know I can! Just I need to start getting into bed earlier and get my sleep back on the right track could be the one of the issues I could be having. Usually and I do not talk about my schedule publicly minus to me posting up pictures Behind The Scenes here in my studio that is all you guys really know. I try and aim to record in the early morning so it gives me hours to edit as it is released in the evening but sometimes I have appointments, friends to see but you guys still have the # 1 priority and I hate to disappoint you guys honestly and that is how I am feeling this week, like I've let you guys down. However I made it up with posting up the episode today at 3 pm EST which is currently already out for you guys as you are all reading this after it got posted up. Also I think I have had the YouTube blues as I haven't been on the platform in almost 3 years creating content for you guys. Starting to miss it but I know I have to realize that I retired from YouTube and nothing can really change that as I missed the chance to keep it on going no matter what. Honestly the podcast has done extremely well on the Audio ONLY and has been nothing but a huge success.

                I also have to realize the state of YouTube now compare to when I was still on the darn platform it has changed rapidly. Maybe I kept on thinking about it over and over again which got me into those bit of depression moods again which I rather not get into em as they sometimes last a couple of days till I get out of it. I rather try and stay in a happy state of mind but I guess it can be the way my body is from time to time I guess.  Yes we all get the blues here and there but I think partly is the weather is the blame as the weather here has been changing non stop lately and could have a factor too. Either way, I will figure it out why I am feeling this way and I am sure it will pass in time.

Favorite Movie Quotes...

             Today's post is favorite movie quotes and I will be doing the ones that are appropriate and I always try to keep these appropriate as much as possible...  There are a bunch of quotes I can say on here and the first one is from Ace Ventura When Nature Calls: "Ace Ventura: Pet Detective" and You must be the Monopoly guy. Hey thanks for the free parking! The Next one is him singing Chitty Chitty Bang Bang while driving, ending up rolling his car upside down with someone else in the car. Also the whole pen is red but really is blue in the movie Liar, Liar.  Or also in Liar, Liar him speaking jibberish and mocking the other lawyer Dana... Ha-ha, I need to put that on this weekend while the live feeds are down for the next Power of Veto for Big Brother Canada. Anyways I am going to do one other Liar, Liar where he tells the person on the phone who needs legal to stop breaking the law with a curse word in there... LOL... Also from movie "The Mask" Look Ma! I'm Road Kill, Ha ha ha! Also Trains, Planes there is a couple of quotes I can say but the first one is Steve Martin dropping the f bomb at the car rental lady which she appears in Air Bud & Ferris Bueller's Day Off. Also John Candy saying "I Knew I Knew You!" with his infamous chuckle. Also Home Alone with "Fuller! Go Easy on The Pepsi!" Or in Home Alone 2 "Kevin! You Spent 967 dollars on Room Service!"

           There you go with some of my favorite quotes that I have and I am sure there is more to quotes but like I say in many posts I cannot fit it all into the post but I enjoyed today's post and it sure made me laugh. While writing today's post, I stopped writing and I even looked at the quotes on YouTube and trust me I had a good laugh and I sure as heck can use a good laugh after a stressful start to my week but ending in a high note, which you will hear about on tomorrow's blog post as I have decided to give you guys the heads up now before tomorrow hits and I was originally planning a weight loss update but nothing to report back to you guys. Anyways I hope you guys enjoyed today's post and what are you're favorite movie quotes? Let me know in the comments and I will speak to you guys again tomorrow morning.

Funniest Moments On Set (Throwback Thursday Story)

             I originally had a Throwback Thursday story that was podcast related but you guys have already have had 2 days in a row now with podcast related content and I honestly need to change things up for this week but I do plan on doing that throwback Thursday story another week as I didn't realize I had too many of a similar topic.  Anyways today's post is about the funniest moments on set and I have a bunch of em I would like to talk today and  was talking about it back on Monday with Eric and he had to bring one of em up I will be talking about but there is another post I wanna talk to later as well and it is in the back of my mind. Anyways first of all I may as well bring this one up, Eric and the CD player after I opened it as it was still going round and round and he said whoa and a curse word which is still to this day on my old YouTube channel the # 1 viewed video with 300 + views will always be remembered as one of the best episodes that I will ever remember that I have ever recorded. Another episode is the running jokes and the constant cursing which mind you now if the group did exist still, now we wouldn't be able to curse like we were originally.

             There is jokes where we always poked fun at one another and I started to give Eric nicknames, Larry and Justin nicknames and the list goes on and on with the ways we always poked fun. There was a moment as I have spoken about this in a separate post but Larry flipping the bird at the camera which at first like I said, I wasn't happy at first but then I kind of laughed it off but it was a fun time even with Larry on set too. Also the constant pranks I pulled from Eric being booed on an intro on Ep # 27 to Dave's ex being booed on April Fools Day. We had so much fun on set and I tried to make it a fun experience but not everything was fun and games, there was days where I was stressed out and I sure wasn't afraid to let out my frustrations on set but other days I was cool as a cucumber. In retrospective, it was a fun time with the fun on set and the laughs, bloopers and goof ups and there is probably more moments but I am sure I cannot always fit it into a post but all the moments are indeed memorable.

Episode 200 for Everything About Reality TV is Close!

            Well with the 180th episode now recorded, I am officially 20 episodes away from the 200th and yes I cannot wait for it to happen. I still cannot believe it has been just over a year since the 100th aired last year in February of last year. The podcast is in it's 3rd year On Air, an year on YouTube and nearly 2.5 years on the Audio ONLY platforms which is 12 different platforms the podcast is now on, which I appreciate them having my podcast on there and one of them, I am featured on there which probably is why the podcast has gotten more views now but were slowly getting known out there that this podcast but slowly but surely it is getting there. It does take time but 200 episodes is an incredible to be at this point, I never thought this day would be come. I have never done this many episodes before, even when I had that web series long time ago back on the YouTube from 2008 - 2016. Anyways I am derailing myself from the topic at hand. However I am tying it the number which I believe it was 112 and with Everything About Reality TV it has surpassed it way passed it as this seems to be a very stable and honestly I have enjoyed it so far, it is a lot of fun to talk Reality TV several times a week as the schedule changes from week to week like I said previously.

             I have said this on social media, I am not making overly a big deal with the 200th episode. I mean, I just do not want to do special episodes every 100 episodes, I want to save that for the 500th episode down the road which is a long way off. However I have said it before this podcast is not going anywhere anytime soon! It is indeed here to stay as I enjoy the podcast and I have ideas for the future including a possible return to a platform where I started my media but down the road not right now as I not 100% sure on the decision but I am thinking about it for the future indefinitely. I would like to wrap up this post by saying thank-you to each and everyone of you guys for the love and support you guys have given me over the years the podcast being on the air. It has been a fun and quite an journey from the start to this point where I am this close to the 200th episode.

Putting The Power Rangers Collab Podcasts on Hold Again!

            With Survivor: Edge of Extinction and Big Brother Canada 7 underway now, I can officially say I am in a busy schedule now and which means the prep work for the Power Rangers Podcast is on  hold again which is disappointing to me and to you guys, but I have no time to be working on it and there is plans once Big Brother ends to start grinding to get it done but right now is not the right time or place for it. This is why I told Larry I was going to and planning on a hiatus as I didn't plan on this hiatus happening, I really didn't get planning ahead of schedule so I was able to record between Celebrity Big Brother US 2 and also Survivor and Big Brother Canada 7 where both him and I could of slipped it in there but I didn't and I should of scheduled things better as I knew March is usually the time him and I record the podcast but I have taken the extended hiatus from it and probably is the best move for me and it gives me a break from everything as both Larry and I have grind so hard and we sure as heck at this point deserve the break and least now I can focus on the task at hand which I am currently working on at this current time.

             However for right now my primary focus is on the two shows, the live feeds and the current season for Everything About Reality TV with 3 podcasts a week which will take time with recording the podcast, editing the podcast then getting it ready to be posted up in the evenings but like I said I have my tools and schedule when things are done and it helps. However, the Power Rangers Podcasts is NOT going away anytime soon. It is not over yet for the collaboration podcast as there is plenty more episodes coming just right now I do not have the time to do the prep work but consider this a break for now but plenty more to come. Maybe I will figure out a better schedule and timetable to releasing it and probably why we only record twice a year at the most.  However with twice a year, comes 2 episodes at a time which is great 4 episodes a year at the most. This week I will be doing a schedule diagram this way I know what is what coming out when and when to start planning, etc. So in closing in today's blog post, stay tuned to social media for updates on both Twitter and Instagram as announcement will be coming in the next 2 months to when recording is back into session and when it will be released as I can guaranteed it is going to be back very, very soon!
