Original Post Got Cancelled So I'm Not Sure What To Say....

            The Original post I had at one point was about me streaming on Twitch but since now I am now not streaming video games at this moment and probably more then likely will not be streaming anymore especially with the way my net and computer is, it just cannot handle it apparently. I do need a new PC eventually. It's not cheap to pay for one getting it built by Canada Computers like 4200 bucks and that's quite a good amount of money and I need to save up money. Any money that I save on the side here is going towards a brand new computer and Gaming Computer. I am not really sure if I wanna continue on with this website to be honest... I am just sick of all of this and over CBOTW. I hate to say it, because you guys know I love what I do on a daily basis. This has nothing to do with Savannah who recently came back to help as Site Admin and of course Larry who is my dedicated Senior Producer and Co-Host. 

              The last year and a half almost has been nothing but drama and I am just sick of it and I really, really want to actually make it to the 10 year anniversary and show to the haters out there, haha I made it 10 years without closing up shop. It was around this time period 2 years almost when the other team went down and I really do not wanna end up in the same fate as The Video Projects Team did November 13th, 2014 the day before CBOTW became a thing almost 7 years ago. Just sick of all the drama, I want and calling for some Community Unity where there is no more fighting. Remember we do have that Terms of Use which can be found at the bottom of ChrisBOnTheWeb.com and this all has to stop, no more drama, I am getting to a point of not being able to handle this all over again. I have temporarily stepped down from the Admin role on my Facebook group and still am on there either way.

Halton County Radial Museum Opening Weekend!

     It has been nearly 2 years since I have been able to go to the Halton Radial Museum and the picture on the left side is a picture almost 2 years ago, this was October 13th, 2019 when we were at Halton County Radial Museum and yes I had a goatee then which right now it's just my stache at this moment of time since it is summer after all. When I got the word about Streetcar Museum was doing a Soft Opening, I was so thrilled and wanted to go in the back of my mind. My dad mentioned we can go if you want. I was hesitant with this pandemic still ongoing and cases gone up a bit recently but I realized we're masked and social distancing so really I had nothing to worry about. The way I think of it  it is an outing and got my out of the house for a several hours and was nice to be in the car and out for a ride.

            Now to this present day, there was rain on the way there and we got there to Halton County Radial Museum the rain subsided. We checked in and showed our tickets and did our COVID-19 questionnaire to ensure we're good to be there.  We then proceeded into the barn and looked around. A lot of the displays have been moved about in the main barn as they have added the CLRV's (Canadian Light Rail Vehicles) and ALRV (Articulated Light Rail Vehicle) and some are going to the States but due to our borders being closed they are being stored in at the museum and I took a picture of them. I grew up with the CLRV's and ALRV's most of my life and I know I probably have been on the PCC. It is so amazing to see so many changes to the museum over the course of the pandemic and they sure have been busy working on changes to it. Also 4040 which is the CLRV Streetcar that my toque went for a ride and my dad and I had to go chase all over the city of Toronto to get it back. Another story for another day. Either way I give a big applaud to Halton County Radial Museum and the hard work they have done during the time they closed and was very honored to return once again. I really missed going there and it was an honor to return and do another amazing post. Few more things is the progress they have made with their restoration projects and how far they have gone. Also by the barn there is a streetcar that's sadly rusted away but the vine growing on the streetcar it looks really cool actually you can see a bit of the windshield a tad. Anyways that's my post for today, hope you enjoyed it and will talk to you all tomorrow.

Trying To Figure Out Some Things...

               You might of not know but I have the domain for another 2 years then it's renewal time once again to ensure I renew it in 2022. I can be honest with you guys, I am 50/50 on making a business decision with ChrisBOnTheWeb which is actually renewing the domain and spending the money to renew it for 10 years which is a very very long time, takes the website to CBOTW's 20th Anniversary in 2034. I have to think strategic with it and I have to do what's best. I have some money saved aside for it but I have to make sure I wanna continue for the long run and I do. Yes, ChrisBOnTheWeb is doing quite well and the views are there and in the back of my mind I can see the 10 Year Anniversary it is not that far from it, 3 years to be exact. I just do not wanna make the wrong move and renew the domain for 10 years and then end up quitting and  screwing myself out of the money for it. That is my dilemma because back then when I had the other team, it was a mess and I ended the team and had a domain already and had to cancel it which I didn't even get my money back and I should of known better.

              So I have to really think things through to really come up with a decision if it is in my best interest to renew for that length of time and I am pretty sure it will be around. There is no plans to end it anytime soon as I am in a good place but again I am going to weigh the pros and cons of deciding to go with a more long term plan. I think this is definitely the time to think long term for ChrisBOnTheWeb.com because I have it set on the site where I am actually happy with the state of the site and not planning to change anything on the website at this point.  However I have sometime to weigh the options. Anyways that is my post for today I will talk to you all on Monday with a very special post for the first time in 16 months, till then have a great weekend!

Power Rangers Collaboration Podcast Release Schedule (August 2021)

               I know with the SPD Podcast looming within a day from now you wanna know the timetable for release. Well first of all, I wanna set the record straight that we had to split the SPD Podcast into 2. Yeah, we had 60 + pages of notes which sets a new record for us. So instead of doing it in one, we're going to try two podcasts instead and hopefully this goes well with us but we are not planning to do this again in the very near future as this could become a total fail all together but this isn't nor the time or place to be negative really. Anyways the schedule will be looking like this:

Friday, August 6th, 2021, 1 pm EST: Power Rangers SPD (Part 1, First 19 Episodes)

Friday, August 13th, 2021, 1 pm EST: Power Rangers SPD (Part 2, Episodes 20 - 38)

              Yeah there is a 2 part episode and I am questioning my judgement of breaking it down into two parts and this is why I need to make sure moving forward to make sure it's one part not any of these two part episodes anymore. It's ridiculous to be splitting it into 2 parts and I got that weird feeling this isn't going to go over well but it is what it is and we had to split but we will see what happens it hasn't been recorded as of yet. Still it'll be fun tonight and this gives me a week to edit the podcast(s) and get them out at a timely matter. I hope you enjoyed my blog today and I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Minecraft Server Updates

                     I am here to give you guys and provide you an update on my Minecraft Server today. A lot has happened in the last while with the completion and fix of the ice rink with better suited lighting in there I put my attention solely on the building process once I finished the lighting in the football stadium. I started excavating dirty and placing down dirt to build the final sports stadium and start building the main structure at the bottom of the stadium. I had to remove some of the dirt from a hill side but you cannot even tell it was sliced into as it's a straight slice as it was before.  Then I put the glass on the outside you sort of can see it in the image to the right at the top popping on out and the second bowl was built. Now I am working the 3rd and Final bowl and with the water falls at the back, it will remain an open concept there there will be no seating built above the left field seating and where the bullpen is. 

              Now moving into the next part of the update, as requested by my niece as she wanted me to build a CN Tower like building and I know there is is two decks but I like it with the one  floor for right now. Maybe later I will add it to the tower but I like it as it is right now and I like it as it is and also if you can see its a glass on the floor so you literally can look down and see the ground from where you are which is definitely a cool feature to have and it has our touch to it. Maybe I made it better perhaps? Never know! Final thing I wanna add is I started to lay out the bed for the railway in the Nether and that will be the next big project to work on next is building the railway in the Nether as well. I have some other ideas for the regular world too, perhaps shops and what not added, I may see if my nephew likes this and expand the dome property to the side with shops and what not but I will have to ask him first. That is my post for today, hope you guys enjoyed it and I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Power Rangers & The Collab

                These seasons are the ones, I started to wonder why did I continue the collaboration podcast. However since the views are there, we are doing this for you guys, the fans. The podcasts popularity is through the rough. You know I really had bad first impressions of SPD till I watched it and actually enjoyed it and when you guys hear the podcast as we make a ton a references to the original 3 seasons but you have to wait till it is recorded and released for you guys. Guess the saying don't judge a book by it's cover. Yeah we could of skipped this season in total but then I know you guys wouldn't be that happy with me if we skipped over a season of Power Rangers. We both wanna do every season of Power Rangers right to the end of the 28 seasons which we are going to address in a podcast or even a video one way or another and if we get a chance Thursday we will record it, we have to discuss this again before we decide and I think it will be podcast format for the most part but might be video that isn't decided yet. 

                   With the movement of the next collab and getting geared up ready to go for Thursday which the announcement is coming Thursday morning with a brief announcement that I also have. Either way I am enjoying it so far and going to try make a good run to get it done in a few days then working on Operation Overdrive, Jungle Fury and RPM so I can start typing up notes and get em done. I start when I get up to at least 3 pm to when I get tired and need to stop for the day. Today I hope to finish up to 10 episodes and I stopped for an hour to write a couple of blogs so I have this one and at least tomorrow's done and finished. Hopefully before summer is done I will actually be done watching all the seasons of Power Rangers, Mystic Force, Operation Overdrive, Jungle Fury & RPM. Anyways that is my post for today, I hope you guys enjoyed it and I will talk to you all tomorrow!

ChrisBOnTheWeb-- Trying To Figure Out The Right Direction With The Website

                  Yeah, you probably seen the chatroom here on the website suddenly poofed! Yeah well there is an explanation to that. I wasn't thinking clearly when I told Alexandra that I wanted to grow the website and adding back the chatroom was not the right move. I should of thought  things more clearly. With the rumors getting stronger and stronger with a potential Reboot of the beloved CBOTW Gamers Podcast down the road, there can be and possibility of a Discord Server returning eventually as there is possibilities of the Podcast being streamed over to Twitch since I am banned from YouTube and cannot stream to there plus you guys know my stand against that. Back to what I was saying-- I think having the chat really crowds the heck out of the website especially the top bar on the website as it was quite full. 

                However there is other ways you guys can stay in touch with me and my team, Facebook Group, Twitter and Instagram, even e-mail if you got any questions that you may have. I just do not wanna crowd the website whatsoever and I think the way Alexandra and I have the website now is a ton better and I think at this point, we are done adding new items to the menu at this point and I have no plans to add anything else to that menu. I am keeping it to the 6 items on the menu.  However we are planning to keep adding and maintaining the drop down menu on my website moving forward. I hope I'm in the right direction now and not going backwards in time. Like that podcast I did a week or two ago, Moving Forward, not Backwards. Anyways I will talk to you all tomorrow and one last thing, if you have any ideas for Wednesday's post please leave it in the comments below!

ChrisBOnTheWeb Studio Grand Re-Opening

                   I know with the pandemic (COVID-19) Larry and I were not able to do an official Grand-Re-Opening upon the completion of the renovations, we were already in lockdown because of the state of the world so with Larry and I are soon to reunite after nearly 2 years of not seeing each other in person, we are planning to do the Official Grand Re-Opening and we are planning to go big with the Grand Re-Opening. We are planning to stream to both the Facebook Group and Instagram Live on my accounts to celebrate the return to a more normal activities returning and we kind of have an idea when but we are waiting till restrictions are more lifted in the area. Not just the Grand Re-Opening but it's a celebration of be re-united back together and being able to see one another. It will be probably just the two of us as I do not wanna go too big at the start and I wanna make sure we are still safe regardless as we went through a heck of a long. 

                   There will be no recording till February 2022 as that is the next one and not 100% sure if we will be back together as of yet but this is depending when restrictions are lowered down greatly and we are able to visit without masks but we will giving you guys a ton of notice when it's going to happen and when we decide to be back together again with one another. Either way I am excited to be doing this grand re-opening soon enough and it will be time to celebrate the return to hopefully some normalcy which really there isn't going to be a normal its more the new normal now and will be the new normal for all of us. Stay tune on further development on this bit of news, I will try and keep you guys up to date as much as I can.

How I Got Into ABBA Music....

                 Even though I grew up with the older music because of my parents, I had absolutely had no clue who ABBA was yet their music was and still is amazing music to this day. However, I really got into their music and I really mean got into their music thanks to a musical called "Mamma Mia" which is really well known even to this day due to the 2 movies they did which I absolutely love both of them. However that is not the only thing, the earliest I started to getting into the music was because of Mamma Mia the Musical which I saw in 2000 with my mom and dad as a birthday or Christmas gift if I remember correctly.  Either I'm an ABBA nut, I even own the soundtracks from the musical on stage and the first movie so you can sort of say that I am a bit obsessed with the music and listen to it when I need a pick me up in my moods from time to time and yes some of the songs want me to make me dance from time time. 

               The saying goes, the classics never die and that's entirely true too, they don't die. Even now their as popular as when they came out at their original release. Either way I love the music and yes there are more songs that I enjoyed more which I probably and will do a blog post about down the road which ones I really love the most like a top 5 or top 10 list and I probably will by end of this week, most likely at the end of this week or early next week at the latest but either way you guys will be getting a top 10 list or a top 5 so be sure to keep checking back for that soon!

Are Larry and I Going to Cover The Power Rangers Movies

                You know the answer to this and it's been spoken about the past year and half now. The answer is YES! We are indeed planning to actually cover the movie sooner but this pandemic, COVID-19 happened and we were swamped with a few things 1 of them being the fact we had to change the setting from being in studio to online plus falling so far behind on our schedule for each year, we had to play catch up so the movies have ended up on the backburner at this moment. However as I mentioned last week with the most recent meeting with Larry and it is clear that there is a possibility of Power Rangers stopping with new seasons or being cancelled but it is not 100% clear and I am thinking that there getting to the end of Sentai footage. However as I have said on social media both him and I have 21 ideas for Power Ranges Collaboration Podcast and 3 of them are indeed the movies which as follows:

  • Power Rangers The Movie (1995)
  • Power Rangers Turbo Movie (1997)
  • Power Rangers Movie (2017) 
                So those are the 3 movies we want to cover and by then, we will have another movie on the list I'm sure as they have spoken about the movie having a second movie. So what it sounds like, they may just focus on movies instead of the series. So moving forward off the seasons itself, if they stop making newer seasons, then we can most definitely do the movies. What I'm saying we can most certainly keep the podcast active on the list but it won't be as often but as for your question, yes him and I are planning on the movies just the question is when will we get the chance to do the movie and it sounds like beyond February 2023 we will be continuing this podcast on it's part time status. We, meaning Larry and I have an Agreement till January 1st, 2024 so we still got another 2 years in the books so plenty of the collab to happen, don't worry.
