Starting To Figure Out The Future of My Content!

                 I have started making changes for the future of content. First change is Power Rangers Podcast. It is sounding like an hiatus from the Collaboration Podcast series is going to happen once "Dino Thunder" is complete and during the hiatus I will be working on SPD, Mystic Force & Operation Overdrive and Jungle Fury. I am looking into recording in April or May and also July for both Larry and I which I mentioned above those are the next ones on the list followed by RPM and Samurai which brings us into a another renewal which I am sure will be tough once again for us to renew. This is the only concern in the way of content for me to be honest and it will be tough as I do not have an manager now at this point and I am am pretty much on my own with Tiala and Larry Modding for my page at this moment.  So now it is about me getting things back on the right track for my content at this moment.

                Things are coming along very slowly at this moment and after ranting and raving at Larry yesterday, think we have an understanding the pressure is indeed on. We will figure this out eventually and either way we will be back to recording in 2021 at some point and it is about him and I catching up what we are doing right now first before we move into the next phase of the podcast. Don't forget we have 12 months in a year to get things done so plenty of time. We hope to get back to a more normal schedule March, July and October in 2022 and next year will be a little different from our normal schedule but we could see an earlier recording but I will let you guys one way or another.  We're making some moves so we can get content back on track. At least you guys get Entertainment Man Podcast in the meantime while you wait for a new Collab to come out since it takes time to prepare it and have it ready to go plus you also have these posts on a daily basis.

Been Feeling Distant From ChrisBOnTheWeb and Creating Content

                 The last few days have been rough since Friday night and someone saying really rude things to me that helped me with the notes stuff and your wondering how they are able to i scanned the notes and sent them over that's how I did it. Anyways last time I really worked on any of that was Thursday when I worked the entire day to get myself to EP # 15 as I said in yesterday's blog post. Yesterday I most definitely did work on it to ensure I get it finished this week so I can start working on the next one and try and keep on a schedule as I have had questions to when the next recording is as him and I are now not on speaking terms again and kind of my own fault for going off and maybe I just need a few days away from him to think things through and right now I have him on ignore but that could change later on. Yes we are behind schedule and we're trying to catch up on this and with me always getting mad and threatening to stop the podcast again. I am at a point this has become a common thread that I am unsure with the future of this podcast and the fact I am unsure if I wanna continue. I can say this, Larry and I almost 2 weeks ago spoke about the end point of the Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast but really I never want it to end at this point. It gives me that time to spend with Larry even if it is through Skype with these uncertainty of times for all of us. 

               I am really struggling with getting things done and one day at a time and I know Larry will talk things out with me. Little tidbit I wasn't planning to record the next Collab Podcast till March of April technically. I wanna make sure we are back on track again and ensure we are on the right path. I know I have not bee in the greatest spirit and I appreciate each one of you reaching out me and I promise you guys I am getting back to the grind and I will announce to when the podcast notes is done and the announcement to when Larry and I are recording and don't worry it's not far off. It can sooner then you think. Like I said to Eric, I have that I don't really care attitude as I'm not letting trolls bother me no more.

Weekly Update For 10-25-2020

          Here is the weekly update for the last October and yes I cannot believe it is the end of the month already and I am only a month away till I my birthday and yeah I am excited for my birthday actually. Anyways this will be more of a quick update for you guys as there isn't much to update you guys on technically. Here are the updates:

Website/Social Media: As you know I have rebranded the website with the banner redone and also as well the Social Media as well. one thing I probably did forgot to mention that the "About" Section I re-did my entire history as a "Content Creator" and it is what I am. I'm an individual who creates content.

Entertainment Man Podcast: I will be back to recording episodes of the podcast this week despite and more then likely will be on Friday this week so I can focus on the collab this week which is a really need to focus on this collab as the end of the week getting it done when I was suppose to technically.

Power Rangers Collaboration: So an update with this collab as I said above I have had a hard time getting this finished up finally so I can start working on but today I am working on it throughout today tomorrow and hopefully finished by Thursday. I tried scheduling myself to getting a ton done and I made the wrong move. I can have a goal but in the back of my mind. I am currently at the 15th episode of the season and 1/4th of the way done.

               There is the updates for the week and this will be a definite busy week for me to getting things done and hoping by next week to actually get the next collab underway for December and catch up. I haven't been focused to actually get it done and it is my own fault. I need to refocus and that is what I am doing today. However been getting other things like the final stages of the rebrand and with that complete I can actually work on it. I will talk more about it tomorrow's post how I have felt distant from the CBOTW Brand recently and the fact I felt sped creating content for you guys but that is for tomorrow's post. I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I will see you guys in tomorrow's post.

Re-Branding Myself And Making Changes To The Studio!

              The last 2 days, I have been re-branding myself and the CBOTW Brand as you know I am on my own right now. This means the banners have been re-done. I made my motto "Creating Quality Content, Since 2005!" and you probably wondering where part of that motto came from, huh? That came from my original team, The Video Projects Team which I pretty much ripped off my old motto but I kind of wanted to go back to the sort of the old motto so you will see that across the website here and also to the social media's Facebook Page and Twitter. Part of this rebrand I was thinking about honestly was thinking along the line of cancelling the fan page and moving all the fans to a group but I started thinking the people who really care about my content and there is a ton of you who really enjoy the content even the video content on Facebook and Instagram and when things get back to normal and Larry get's his butt back to this studio I wanna do those taste tests him and I were gonna do as we have some on our list. Even food reviews in video style. as well. So Social Media has a big part in all of this.  The content is not changing with this change, still got "Entertainment Man Podcast" and "Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast." This is on top of blogs too and also the video content I wanna give you guys as well on both Facebook and Instagram. 

                 The next part of today's post is the studio changed a bit the side of the desk is where Larry is sitting there and his mic is now in the corner and it is easy to see the guest and it would be easy to slap a camera to his chair actually but we are slowly coming along. I originally was planning to make some changes where the guest would be behind the desk but this means changing the setup and the layout and me fixing the walls of holes from the shelf which would have had to been removed and moved over and the side desk, not sure where it would of gone whatsoever. There are a lot of cons of changing things around and where the wires would of ended up going with the PC below the desk so a ton of questions to what would of happened. I know, I know, get on with it! I split the lights up two above my head in front of me and two on the left side way above at the top and it really lights up the space. My uncle is going to help me and look into LED lights for those lights and I am sure the lights will be a ton brighter then they are right now. Either way I am excited there is a way for LED lights in the very nearby future. Those are the changes with the rebrand which mind you I am done with Rebranding CBOTW and the studio I am happy with the setup now then I was before. Anyways I will see you guys in the update blog tomorrow!

What Do I Think About The Amazing Race 32?

             As two weeks have now passed by with the show and I want to take the time and talk about the show so far. I really like this season and the fact they have been going to new locations like Trinidad and Tobago, I think Columbia as well but either way I am enjoying it. This week we also saw the return of the Yield which hasn't been around for years now and I started to think about everything I said on my final episode of Everything About Reality TV Podcast was to a tee so far and honestly I think I may be straight on. I heard next week the return of the Double UTurn which if I remember correctly I also mentioned that. I hope they throw in a Fast Forward in there as well eventually. I am sure it might happen. It is really nice to see some familiar tasks or elements to the race. The fact they are going to new locations is really good and it is nice to see that. I am not sure fi they have been to Trinidad and Tobago or Columbia ever in the race's history and I do not think so.

              Either way this season is very interesting and honestly I don't have a team that I do not like. I like every team equally. My picks that I have made is De Angelo & Gary, Kaylynn & Haley, Cheecee & Hung and Kellie and Lavonne which Kellie and Lavonne was eliminated from the race this week so I am now down a team which is OK as only one team can ultimately win this race technically. I cannot wait to see the return of the double UTurn and if there is a team that will be double UTurning anyone next week. I do remember the Double UTurn and wish they'd bring it back sooner but I am happy they actually brought it back.  I wish they'd bring back the intersection which was also mentioned on an old episode of my podcast and if I remember that is when teams worked together if I remember and again it's been a while since seeing that. Either way I am very impressed and wish they'd actually aired this sooner as we have been waiting 2 years since they filmed this season. Let me know what you guys think about this season in the comments below and I will see you in tomorrow's post!

My Time In College (Throwback Thursday)

             This goes way back 10 years ago and yes I said 10 years as that is when I started College. Now it was a very nerve wracking at first and I really had to get use to being in the college environment outside of what I originally do which was YouTube was my thing back then in the day. Honestly the first couple of weeks was a rough go as I somehow ended up getting Bronchitis and wasn't the only time either I had it at the end of my program too but second time I caught it early and got it under control quite quickly. My first few weeks was rough go especially the fact I had to miss classes and my Learning Facilitator had to grab notes for me and send me notes as you all know I have autism and I was in a bit more modified classes with the workload but either way I seem to have stayed on track and I always was able to modified or not I was always keeping on track one way another. So it did take me sometime to get the hang of things and I know by 2011 I was close to just dropping out of the program as it was becoming way too much however I wanna ensure you I did graduate in 2012 and I actually continued on after a bit of counselling through the campus wellness center and it helped I can tell you guys that, it did help especially at the time I was balancing out school and being in a relationship with my now Ex Girlfriend as we broke it off after I finished up school but that is besides the point. However it was also hard to juggle around keeping the YouTube channel going and active while in school. So it was tough but managed all 3 that I said. 

             On top of school, tutorials I also had a radio show on the college radio station which I mentioned yesterday and it was delayed as they renovated the room it is actually still currently used by the station. I learned a lot but I decided to try and get involved with stuff on campus and be busy on my extra time. Also i had the opportunity to work out in the Gym at the Wellness center which the staff who ran it actually ran my program for the first year before we had a new Liaison who ran it and I think she ran the program in my first year but it is hard to remember to be honest as again it was 10 years ago. Also I found my 3rd camera man for YouTube and he was with me from December 2010 till June 2013 when he suddenly quit. Also that is where I met my last Camera Man that I had & now Co-Host of Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast, Larry. I almost where I met Justin, aka Justina who helped build the set for each season of the series. So there was a benefit towards this as I got more team members.

Took What I Learned At My College Radio Station and Using It For Podcasting!

             I know it has been at least 8 years since I left College all together and yes I was On Air at their college radio station. So I do have experience in internet radio. However I haven't done radio in 5 years and been mostly focused on podcasting. I have actually taken what I learned from the program director and have started utilizing it. I've taken not having my face too close to the mic and even working with my levels. This is why today I always do sound checks and I can do that with podcasting as for radio you can not as you will have your voice broadcasted over the air but depends on the program you use whether you are Video or Audio ONLY. What I have learned from College Radio is having a script helps a lot and you have to make really good script or notes to what you wanna say on the air. I find it a ton easier to say and you have structure to your shows. Now if your wondering what kind show I had it was an easy listening kind of show. easy rock show, nothing too hard core. I know I have notes still from when I did the show but I was all over the place with genres and now I know to stick to one genre.

              I'm getting a little off track aren't I? Anyways I am proud of myself and being on a College radio station really brought my confidence and ability to host a show whether it was YouTube, Everything About Reality TV or Entertainment Man Podcast & Power Rangers Podcast. This is why I am doing Entertainment Man Podcast is because I want to take all of this knowledge and bestow it upon the new podcasters who are starting out. I wanna help you guys as I have learned from the Program Director when I was an On Air Personality or Host with them. Finally I wanna say I was still in touch with him up to the last year or two then he isn't on Twitter anymore at this moment but I am forever grateful for everything he has done for not just me but all the on air hosts at the station. It will be a memory to have this opportunity to be on the air and it will always stay near and dear to my heart for the rest of my life.

Favorite Episodes of Home Improvement

             Today's blog post is about my favorite Home Improvement episodes which is IRONIC, because I am currently watching the series between that and Big Brother Canada which I flip flop between the two shows in the day, depends the mood I am in. Anyways here is my list and there is no particular order:

1) Tim Gluing His Head To The Table: That was hilarious and typical Tim to glue his head and they had to saw around to actually to get him off. The jokes that were made while he had  asmall piece of the table stuck to his head.

2) Tool Time Mans Kitchen: Part of that show within a show's 5th Anniversary they built the man's kitchen and Al's remark "Maybe We Should Get Jumper Cables and Hook It To Another Kitchen" comment.

3)  Al Hosts Cooking With Irma: Al took over Cooking With Irma for a week and has Tim as his assistant and making stupid middle names for him. Kind of a role reversal from Tool Time. Al actually screwed up at towards the end of the episode in a typical Tim fashion. I love how Al said Tim "Doesn't know Gumble from Gumbo Taylor" when he introduced Tim.

4) One of The Halloween Episodes: The one Halloween episodes where the 3 boys are dressed up as Moe there was no Curly or Larry, they all were Moe apparently and it was very hilarious to see actually.

5) Grease Lighting Inspired Episode: The episode that Tim shows off his newly built custom car in an Tool Time episode where he showed off the completed car. One of my other favorite episodes of all time but I love every episode they came out with.

               There is my list and again I have said this in the past I cannot mention all the episodes I enjoy as this post would be endless and honestly this post has been long enough for you guys as it is. Anyways I hope you guys enjoyed today's post and I will catch you in tomorrow's blog post.

Goals I Have For Myself This Week...

               This week is going to be a very busy week for me and I wanna talk about goals that I have for myself this week. Yes even as owner of a website and content creator, I do create goals on a regular basis to ensure the work is done and done right the first time. This week my big focus is on Power Rangers Rangers Collaboration Podcast is that is what the plan is for this week is to finish this up and take a day off before starting Ninja Storm season next as I gotta start those. However the focus right now is to get these notes done so today this is my hopeful plan moving forward to what the plan:

Today (Mon. Oct 19th/20): Get up to EP # 15 of Wild Force typed up, 20 if I really get into a groove today/

Tomorrow (Tues.Oct 20th/20): Get up to 25th episode of the season if I get into a groove to the 30th Episode.

Wed. Oct 21st/20: Get up to 35th Episode if possible of me getting into a groove get it completely done.

Thurs. Oct 22nd/20: Finish up the notes, spell check them, print em and send it out to Mr. Larry Rieck himself to print and have ready for the recording session early November.

              I am hoping to have it done within 4 days from now but you never know what will happen or something like what happened yesterday and have to be prepared for the worst if it happens. However I am giving myself till Saturday at the latest and Sunday off so this way I can get prepared for Monday starting the next two seasons for December then so on from there. Anyways goals are good to have and sometimes they get met sometimes they don't but just keep on working heard and you will get there either way.

Weekly Updates for 10-18-2020!

               Here are some of the updates for ChrisBOnTheWeb for this week and trust me it has been an interesting week. However I am not able to discuss certain things as it pertains to the future of this website and it's content especially. Don't worry it's nothing bad, it's really good news actually and in time you guys will know what is in the plans in the future. Anyways here are the updates:

Website: Nothing has changed with the website, since changing over to being on my own with the help of the 3 that are helping me out to being a success. I am leaving the website as it is for now as I had a chat on the website but someone decided to report it so I just removed it all together as it is not really worth it and if I did a podcast live it wouldn't be off the website since people wanna falsely report the chat for no reason, so it goes back to that same problem I had back on my first ever team. So if I did a podcast live more then likely off our Facebook Fan Page at this point.

Entertainment Man Podcast: As you guys know, I have pre-recorded podcasts and at this point of the podcast, I see things are going very well for this podcast and I wouldn't change anything that I have planned in the way of content but minus maybe not talk about podcasting week after week but it is coming to a slow down and this week's isn't podcast related actually. It's about websites actually and I can confirm that officially 2 hours prior to the links going public to you guys.

Power Rangers Podcast: Finally this collab, I'm sure you want a bit of an update. I am working hard to get the podcasts done so we can try and get back into a better rhythm for the first 2 new two episodes of the renewal schedule. So if we have to stretch Wild Force, Ninja Storm and Dino Thunder we will so this will be a great idea and kind of what we are doing with Wild Force at this moment. Speaking of that Power Rangers Wild Force Collaboration Podcast is being recorded... ready for this? FIRST WEEK IN NOVEMBER! That's right we are set to return in November and you guys do not know how excited I am to return to this finally! Look forward to recording, editing and posting it here on the website.

               There are the updates for the week and not much to say other then what I said above and I'm sure I will hopefully have an update by next weekend on the state of Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast especially as I know you guys are wondering when the next recording is as it is all over the place and trust me I am trying the best I can to fix that issue within the end of this year early next year at the most. Larry knows what is going but anyways I will see you guys on tomorrow's post.

Would I Take A Break From A Podcast Series After Entertainment Man Podcast?

              Now this is a topic I would not even worry about right now. I am in the middle of this current podcast and not worrying about it ending but you guys have asked me this question from numerous of you guys. So anyways yes I would more then likely take a break from a podcast series of some sort. I would need time to figure out what I would like to do next for a podcast on my list and trust me it wouldn't be Reality TV but I could TV related but again I would need sometime to think about things while on my little hiatus but again this will take sometime for me to decide. As you know I have been podcasting non stop with a mini break throughout the summer this year but I mean this would be a longer break like 6 months to a year without a podcast series to do but depends how I feel and how long this podcast goes for too. Again it comes down to how long it will run and really right now I am not really worried about the future. 

              At this point I am in a good place with this podcast and as long as I got ideas to share with you guys that is what matters. Who knows how long this podcast will run, it could be the same length as Everything About Reality TV was, it could be shorter. However I am thinking long term on somethin, could be on my own could be with someone that is with management here and yes I am hinting something entirely. You guys will see eventually. Right now, I am focusing on the projects currently and I ensure you I do not wanna make too many changes too fast as you guys do not want to be too overwhelmed. Anyways that is today's post and I hope you enjoyed this post and I will see you in tomorrow's weekly update post.

Instagram Changed Some Settings!

              Instagram finally did something about the unwanted private messages that you get from people sending you inappropriate links or messages which I have been getting a lot lately. Twitter hasn't been bad at all really and I did open up DM's to everyone but I recently closed it as I wanna take things a little differently with business side of what I do and anything to do with guest appearances on podcasts or sponsorship opportunities I want done through the email most of the time. However for Instagram to make these changes which I never saw about a week ago, so it really must of been the update recently on my IPhone7 and why I am now seeing this very setting. So soon as I saw this immediately I turned off messages from anyone that doesn't follow me. If anyone outside need to get in touch they can follow me or use the email within my website if it is really important and related to my content but enough was enough with the random people adding me to random groups for no apparent reason and the inappropriate links and what not and trolls. I am so happy with this change and it will bring down the amount of spam I get on Instagram especially.

               So, Instagram you definitely did the right thing adding this feature to the website or the app depends how you use it and I actually use both. I use the App when I am away from the computer and studio most of the time.  When I am here in the studio it's the Instagram on the computer via the website. Anyways this was a long time coming for them to make the changes and I am really happy they did it. So that is my post and you can tell I am excited because I am, I am very much excited that they have made these adjustments and I wish I could of mentioned this idea to them but it is hard to get in touch with them, yet it is tough to get in touch as Facebook now owns and operates Instagram as well. Wish there was a way to recommend that feature.

Why Did I Pre-Record 2 Episodes of Entertainment Man Podcast?

               There is a really easy explanation and I will not talk a lot about it and maybe no second paragraph but anyways as you guys know, I have been trying to work on Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast and that is why back on Sunday I did a double recording session and edited within an entire fill 2 days to ensure it is ready to go for the next 2 Sundays. This also is good so I can focus on the Collaboration Podcast and I have made some progress with it and an update is coming soon as I said on my social media. I will have updates hopefully very soon. I think pre-recording is a great idea so I can finally focus on the project with Larry and I and finally get the next collaboration Podcast off the ground as it has been sitting on my inbox for weeks now and finally getting to it and it will probably take me a week and a half little more so to finish and like I said announcement is coming! 

               So that is the main reason why it will not sound as fresh as it normally does but the enthusiasm and excitement in my voice and you will see when it goes up over the next 2 weekends. I am excited for you guys to hear it and I cannot wait to record the collaboration podcast. A lot of great things are coming for me and it is all slowly coming together very slowly. I am not one to give up and I am going to remain positive and put my effort in getting caught up with the workload and work on the next project and what not. So that is the reason behind the podcast being pre-recorded ahead of time and it is really nice to get ahead of schedule a bit and be ready for the next step.
