End of The Week Updates! [09-25-2021]

                  I know the name has changed and since the change of the weekly updates is now at the end of the week to make room for the return of events eventually and you guys know the entire story of the recent and final changes I am making to the schedule but I changed the title just because it is at the end of the week for updates and changed things around. However, enough of me rambling, here are the updates:

- Website: The website has been updated by Jim as he has removed any reminisce of The Video Projects Team as that is now in the past and I have put that team well behind me and I just do not want anything to do the former team. Also under the Past Projects you probably seen no projects before November 14th, 2014 and that was removed for that reason. I am not sure but I think the About ChrisBOnTheWeb has been updated since then. 

- Power Rangers Collab: With the Mystic Force Podcast now recorded, I just wanted to remind you guys that it is on the backburner for editing till I am finished with Operation Overdrive and Jungle Fury. Speaking of which, I should be moving into Jungle Fury as of tomorrow and hopefully get it done by Friday so I can get them also sent out to Larry. I will be taking sometime off about a week off from the collab before I get going on RPM. Between then will edit the collab and get it out to you guys at some point after and it should take me a few days depends how fast it will take.

- Entertainment Man Podcast (2022): With 2022 getting closer and closer in for me, I will be working on 2022 during my week off and probably into RPM I will be getting into working notes for 2022 and preparing the podcast for it's 2nd year on the Air which mind you things have gotten really exciting for me with this podcast and I can say 2022 will be interesting and yes interviews are going to be on the list and I have blocked off 2 weeks for interviews but there will not always be interviews but that is a post alone and I will do a post next week about it all.

- Facebook Group Community: I will be changing the URL to the /cbotwfbgroup when the ban is up later on today but more then likely tomorrow as that is what I am planning to make a post tomorrow morning. Also there has been an large amount of drama and it will not be tolerated. Wednesday I will address it on the Group itself and will be doing a live stream on Tuesday about it to discuss what Jim and I are doing to fix it, also Moderators etc. 

                    There is the updates for the week and a lot has gone on with the Community and content, sorry this is a very long update but so much has happened and some things Jim and I couldn't do as I am restricted or in Facebook Jail for the 30 days which is practically now up and Jim didn't have Admin status for half of the changes which it is now in the past.  Anyways I will highlight was said on the Tuesday Live Stream until then enjoy the rest of your weekend and speak to you all in 2 days from now.

The Honest Truth About The CBOTW Show

                 There has been questions about The CBOTW Show why it went away for good and why Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast isn't on there. I will answer those two questions on today's post. However, I was originally going to talk about Survivor Premiere this week but I was suppose to watch it with my friend and The Video Projects Team Alumni, Eric but that was held off till today between 2 and 3 this afternoon. Anyways to today's post:

- The CBOTW Show Podcast went away because of issues towards the end of the Big Brother Canada Finale and I departed ways with my Co-host towards the end cause I was waiting on editing to be done as I couldn't and can't do every job there is and I asked for help and they offered but it is now in the past and you guys get Entertainment Man Podcast and Power Rangers Collab and you guys are very lucky The CBOTW Show abruptly ended.

- Now Power Rangers Podcast or now most notable known as Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast is better as it's own thing as The CBOTW Show ended I had to redo the intros and yes we could of kept The CBOTW Show afloat with Power Rangers being a part of that podcast but then it would of been hard to maintain 2 feeds at once, this one and my personal journal podcast as well.  

                    In the long run  I made an honest mistake bringing back the Reality TV Podcasts and I should of kept doing Entertainment Man Podcast and you guys would of gotten the full 50 episodes this year but it all worked out in the end.  You guys enjoy Entertainment Man Podcast and Power Rangers Collab it was worth to just keep things as it is. I can be honest, I didn't wanna bring The CBOTW Show back, I was ready to just move on and when I quit Everything About Reality TV Podcast, I meant it that I was ready to just move on to bigger and better things and not worry about 2 - 3 shows a week. What I am doing now I am very content with and enjoy talking about my experiences and create a conversation with you all. Hope this cleared things up and the truth why I ended up walking away from Reality TV. Final thing I can say I will never do another Reality TV podcast again because I am very content with what I am doing now. Anyways I will talk to you all tomorrow for the Survivor post, have a great rest of your day!

Power Rangers Collab Is Returning and Updates!

             I have held onto this news for 2 days now and even my Management Team, Alexandra has started to speculate the return is near and this is true she started to speculate back on the weekend with the notes sent to Larry and since Monday have arrived to Larry's doorstep. I can officially say, IT IS true, Power Rangers Collab is resuming production tomorrow with Mystic Force season which is the 14th Season in the series and is the halfway marker to the 28 seasons that is out now. It is exciting to be back in the saddle again and really we're not on a solid schedule as we're still working out on notes and trying to get things done and hopefully by late October we move onto Operation Overdrive and Jungle Fury into November and RPM probably end of November. 

            So tomorrow starts what will be long next many weeks of recording and getting caught up on the podcast and I will remind you that Mystic Force will be held onto till Operation Overdrive and Jungle Fury Notes are finished up. I will let you guys know on Social Media when it is coming out but one step at a time, baby steps, we will get caught up on things and it will happen in time. Once I send off the next 2 we can record back to back but here is a look at what you can expect:

Thurs. Sept 23rd, 2021: Power Rangers Mystic Force

This puts the Podcast a little ahead of schedule which is good which means we can be ahead of schedule and we can get it done a little sooner. Here is the next set in the schedule:

Thurs. Oct 21st, 2021: Power Rangers Operation Overdrive

Thurs. Nov 4th, 2021: Power Rangers Jungle Fury

Thurs. Nov 18th, 2021/Tues. Nov 30th/Thurs. Dec 16th, 2021: Power Rangers RPM (Tentative dates, we could record sooner and we will let you guys know one way or another.)

                 I know I may have been a bit quiet on it this time around but I didn't know whatsoever if we were recording this week and he wants to do it and we're ahead of schedule at this point which is unusual for us and the last set of dates are possible dates and is tentative as we have not reached that point yet. However despite everything that happened Monday this puts a smile on my face and I honestly cannot wait to record to be honest! The fun is about to begin! Till tomorrow, have a great rest of your day!

I've A Lot of Time To Think About Things.....

                 I have had a lot of time to think about it and reflect after being banned for the 5th time, I've considered leaving Facebook all together as a whole. However since the group has been growing, I had to reconsider things as it has been amazing to sit back and watch the group grow so I am going to stay and there has been things that I wanna tweak within the group. If you are on the group you saw the post Alexandra posted but I will say this, I wasn't going to do any Moderators and I am still considering it and have a short time to decide and I think I will be still doing it as of this weekend, I will have no Mods for now. I am not going to put up with anything on the group. If I remove someone from the group then I lose a number so I have had time to re-think the strategy with the group side of things. 

               Now with the blog, when I announced the new schedule with the blog, I didn't think about it clearly... I reconfigured the blog incorrectly so starting Monday, I will be going back to the original format which is this:

Mondays: Regular Topic/Events when it starts back up again.

Tuesdays: Regular Topic

Wednesdays: Regular Topic

Thursdays: Regular Topic

Fridays: End of The Week Update (Under a new name)

                Now the Weight Loss Updates will be sporadic and have no specific day and when I feel ready for updates, then I will give em but again it is on a random schedule at this time, no big plans for updates often we will see how it goes moving forward. Anyways that is my update and I know my blogs are all over the place this week but it is what it is and I will talk to you all tomorrow!

Power Rangers Collab Is In A Bit of Trouble....

             The Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast is in trouble..... Not financially or legally but it goes along the line when he's able to come back to studio not to just record but also hangout. Sundays was always our day to record and that may be soon to be changing as we may have to change days for recording and also hanging out and I am not happy with my transit system whatsoever. I hope Larry is going to be able to resolve this issue, as we may end up recording during the week but when is the question and I do not really know what will happen as this hasn't been discussed yet as this was figured out yesterday morning where there is no bus just a "B route" and doesn't come all the way out and trust me I have emailed the transit system twice in the last 2 days now and their not hearing the end of it. I told em I run a podcast and Sundays were our regular days which now is not the case anymore. 

              So I do not know the future of this, I have started to question a lot of things, whether it is time for me to move out the area, my childhood home and move into an apartment that actually has a bus route and able to travel without restrictions of service to my Co-Host especially. So this is on my long list of things to discuss with Larry and he already knows cause once again I went off at Larry like usual and he's not going to be happy whatsoever and a ton of planning to do when we're off air between RPM and Samurai and we will probably have a ton of meetings and getting organized before he is able to return to the studio and once I know the plan, we will be sure to tell you guys the plan moving forward but right now it will have to be discussed first and it is at the bottom of our list of things to do right now as the list is quite long. So thanks a lot That is the post for today and I will talk to you guys tomorrow.

Weekly Updates (09-18-2021)

               For this update, I do not have any real updates this week, things are progressing well and you guys saw a pop up podcast for Entertainment Man Podcast and that is because every 2nd week I will have an second episode up so this week there is no bonus episode. However today I wanna focus on the Future of ChrisBOnTheWeb & and also one last thing to address as I am struggling with something:

- Jim wasn't lying when it came to his post last Tuesday evening when he came out in the open that I am planning to renew this domain for a longer length and I still got a few years left on this current contract but try renewing this domain for a decade, yes that is how dedicated I am to this website and the projects that I am doing currently. 

- When I get closer into the 10 year anniversary, more then likely just a special anniversary banner will be made for the anniversary but we are planning to not overdo the banners and design but yes it is a big deal that this website.

                One last thing I wanna address before I wrap up today's post is I have been having thoughts about the way The Video Projects Team ended and worried about now that ChrisBOnTheWeb is now getting closer into 7 years now that 8.5 year is only a year and a half away and worried it will not last but as I said it will and Jim and I have been talking about 10 year and having some festivities and probably have a party planned and probably have my Alum here, Justin, Larry here, The Video Projects Team Alum probably will be welcomed to come to the studio to celebrate. I think as I wrap up this weekly updates on the blog today, I know me being on my own for content and yes collaborating with my friends and other content creators is the way to go with this website. I can see the website and ChrisBOnTheWeb brand go 10, 20, 30 years at the most and it will but right now, it's in single digits. That is what I have to say and I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day and I will talk to you all tomorrow!

Weight Loss Update [09-17-2021]

                   I know this hasn't been a thing for a while as my weight went way up by 14 pounds but that has changed since as I haven't been eating much lately and my weight has suddenly been going downwards. I weighed in as of earlier this week at 236 pounds and now sitting 3 pounds lesser then usual. I continue to lose the weight and cut back on things and I plan on continuing to lose the weight each and everyday. I think the not eating definitely had an affect in my weight which is technically good really and I just gotta keep up with it and I can look back at this post to do a count when I do the next update at the end of October time and hopefully by then I am in the 220's again within 2 weeks so I guess I am going for a 10 pound limit. 

                   However I think I wanna do an update end of every month as I do not wanna bore you with the updates every 2 weeks I think it will be more appropriate and that usually lands once a month depending so the next update would be more then likely Oct 29th on the Friday. I know I haven't said much about the weight loss but trying my hardest to lose the weight and wanna get down to 210 by my doctors appointment. My new goal is 200 pounds by end of the year but that may not be a thing or even possible as I have to lose 33 pounds in 3 months but if I continue to lose I can do it. Few things I should remember to do is cut out cookies everyday, any sweets, sugars and what not and I should be able to lose the weight a lot quicker if I cut out the fatty, sweet stuff I should be good. Anyways that is my little update on the situation and I will talk to you guys all tomorrow for the weekly update that is now on Saturdays so have a great rest of your day and HAPPY TGIF!

I Played On A Soccer Team When I Was In Elementary School (Throwback Thursday Story)

                  Way, way, way back when I was still in elementary school, I do not remember what grade I was in technically but I played on a school team. Now mind you the school I was a part of the soccer team on does not exist anymore and is 2 of the elementary schools that do not exist and 2 out of the 3 that had the original name as one other school nearby home change their name. Anyways, I had 0 clue how soccer works and I still have no idea the rules of the sport as it's not too common here minus our MLS League, Toronto FC, Montreal team and some teams down in the state but I mean it is popular in the UK and in Europe. So I mean I had a little bit of an idea with the sport. I remember very little about the team and I remember the tourney north of us called Port Perry which yes I have filmed 2 series up there for on location in the past but this was on the outskirts of the town. I do not think we did too well at the tournament, it was quite a hard tournament and I do not remember if we placed in the top 3 or not but I don't think we did but again this is a very long time ago. 

                But hey it was a once in a lifetime opportunity and I never really played on a team team again since then. I have played freely at the Lake with my camp and also friends and kicking the ball around and I still got a soccer ball but since then it has deflated itself and we would have to reflate it but my niece and nephew could have the ball or we could of gotten rid of the ball since but still would be nice to kick the ball around still despite my knee issues. I know the sport requires a ton of running and a lot of exercise is involved with the sport, but all worth it. Once last neat thing I do remember is the team name was the Griffin's and how I remember this to this day is beyond me as I remember. Anyways that is today's update and I will talk to you all tomorrow morning with an weight loss update how I have started my journey back down to 222 pounds.

Nothing Wrong With Thinking Ahead and Problem Solving!

                   The last 24 - 48 hours I have time to reflect while working on notes and content in general and I have come up with solutions to some of the problems going on around the community, content wise. It is not you guys, it's me trying to do 100 things at once, multi tasking to make sure things get done in a timely fashion to meet goals for the end of 2021. I have been thinking about how to make recording the collab work and the solution I came up is finish Mystic Force, get that done and delivered in the mail to Larry one town over since we are not yet back in studio with one another and once he gets it we will record it and like I said on social media, we will be keeping it on the backburner till all notes are completed and sent out to him and that will be the next project. Practically right now it is Power Rangers Collab Notes and Entertainment Man Podcast and going back and forth with the two projects.  Once I am done the notes I will start to edit the collab and back and forth with that. While working on RPM I will get a head start on Entertainment Man Podcast for 2022. 

                    I am really thinking and planning ahead to what needs to be done for the rest of this year and into 2022. I know I am all over the place right now when it comes to getting the work done and I guess this is a part of me where I have to trust my gut instincts. I cannot say when collab episodes are coming out but I know it will be out probably week apart from one another but I could hold onto episodes till their all done and release em for you guys but this is something I would definitely have to talk to Larry about. However I am always looking into the future and how things can be done, what works and what isn't working and it is about getting things done in a timely fashion. I  know I sound like a broken record but this collab, no offense to Larry but it is eating up my time for other projects on ChrisBOnTheWeb and I was hoping to have started on Entertainment Man Podcast for 2022 already. However it is what it is and just gotta take it one thing at a time, one day and week at a time and it will all come together eventually. That is my post for today, hope you guys enjoyed it and be sure to follow on the right hand side by hitting the follow, best way to know when a new post does go up and I will talk to you all tomorrow!

Going Full Throttle With Notes!

                 After yesterday's adventure and passing out right after dinner just fueled the fire in me to get these notes done and I was up at 1130 pm got a pile of notes done but today and this week is about getting the notes finished. Larry doesn't know this but I pushed the recording up a bit and once I get a confirmation which I have mentioned Skype to discuss all of this and what we wanna do since I am still typing up notes at this point and really pushing to get them all finished and ready to record. Typing does take some time and days to a week at a time but soon as he gets them we are golden but I am going full throttle with the notes! I know it will be quite difficult with recording episode of the other episodes and it is going to be back and forth between that and the notes and it will be a bit of a pain in the butt to deal with but there is a fire lit under me to get these done!

                 I am firing under all cylinders and ready to go! The fact 32 episodes is not as many as we were doing but still a lot to do still regardless. Anyways I am so stoked and excited to be really pushing myself and getting these notes and I already restocked on the blue front cover for notes so I have enough for a while, like 500 sheets in the package so it is good that I am prepared for the future of collab podcasts with Larry and with other people as well, like I said I am firing on all cylinders and excited to just get them all done so I can finish the final episode for 2021 and we can have a clean slate in 2022 because I am OVER 2021! Like really! I am over this year, it's been a year from heck! I am just ready for a reset as this year I think we have recording more episodes then we have done in past years just trying to catch the heck up. No matter what happens, we end up having to push it up just hope we get RPM done that is my big problem, I need to really focus but it is hard but I am full speed ahead! Anyways that is my ramble post for the week and I will talk to you all tomorrow!

Not In Any Rush To Going Back To Events

                       I know I have mentioned the steps and to be honest, I am in no rush whatsoever to get back to events. I know deep inside myself I wanna do it and return to a more normal routine with ChrisBOnTheWeb & What I am trying to say, I could keep things as they are right now and the viewers would stay put as they are. The views would not change whatsoever probably increase in time when things are good enough for me to go to actual events and to bring content from outside the studio and when I gave you guys that stages list I really meant it that events would be the last thing I would go back to. I mean the local events in the area would be a start but I am in absolutely in no hurry to get back to events. Really things are doing just fine. I admit when I switched over from events to topics, it wasn't easy transition and had to change a lot, the scheduling and what not but I had to become a pro at all this change and very quickly. 

                    So what I am trying to say I am no hurry whatsoever to change back to the original format and is one of the reasons why you noticed the change recently with the scheduling starting today as this is the start of getting back to a new normal in our world as you know our world has changed drastically with this pandemic and now I have to have new protocols when it comes to not just the content and having Larry back but the events which has been a major factor in the site and the content and one day it will happen but I am going to take my time when it comes to going back to events but I assure you that day will come just not planning too far ahead, it will depend on number of cases and restrictions and when events do return as there is no real news on it yet and I continue to monitor things as the months go on. That is my post for today and enjoy rest of your day and I will talk to you all tomorrow!
