The Binding of Isaac Rebirth Progress!

              So lately while watching Power Rangers Time Force to get the season underway and moving well. I did a Azael run and boy I went on a tear first time around. I also did a normal Isaac run and had a decent run so that is very good. I have actually unlocked a couple of things. Honestly I dunno what happened to the Vanilla Isaac, the original. Apparently I left it and it automatically 100% Golden God so that is why I am now on Rebirth so the game glitched out on me apparently. Anyways I am having some really good deep runs and I like Rebirth better then Isaac. I think it is one of my most favorite games of all times out of the two that I have played. I feel like it is a ton better then the original but yet again the second one is always better as they sure change things around this time around. 


               Either way I will not give it any review at this point as I want to get further into the game but I promise you guys soon enough you will get a review.  Finally I would like to say I find myself playing this game more and more and hey I got some time on my hands right now even while watching the shows to get a collab done which buys a lot of time and gives me something to do honestly. Also I have actually knocked off a few challenges in the process but also found myself struggling with the one challenge with the orbital tears which is hard to control but I am getting use to it and one day I will get use to it. However with brimstone, I have become a pro at it and I love it and really good and whenever I get the chance with that item then I take it without any hesitation as I am really good with it. When I first used it, I wasn't good at it but now, I'm a pro at it all together. There is my post for today and I guess I will see you Monday as I am off tomorrow as my staff is taking over the blog tomorrow so have a great Sunday and talk to you guys Monday.

Website Menu Bar Was Tweaked A Bit...

               As you know, ChrisBOnTheWeb & ChrisBOnTheWeb.com is always rapidly changing. There is a reason behind the Menu bar looking different under the Tab, "Podcasts" However I cannot say anything yet as we need to tie up the loose ends for this project. Trust me I had a heck of a night with frustrations and what not working on this and I thought it had to do with the menu coding itself but it wasn't. After 2 hours, I was ready to just give up and force the project to one certain platforms but now that has been resolved now, it's green lit. I really wanna tell you guys what we got in-stored and even some of our members on the Discord Server got to see what we were doing technically. However once we get confirmation and the host is setup and been tested then we will be announcing where you can listen to him on the air and yes I said he. Let's just say it's an old friend from the chat website I use to be involved. Anyways I can hint all I want really. I know you wanna know but soon you all will know whats up and the plan that is ahead for us. 


              However the changes are live here on the website and just scroll over podcasts and you will see the big gap which in time will be filled in. Please patient with us while we continue to plan and get things setup with our new hosts. Mind you this menu bar is still in BETA Testing right now and we're ironing out all the bugs and issues. We're new to the entire building your own and the entire CSS Code thing so please do be patient with us while we deal with all the bugs and issues. Please do send us a message or email thecbotwteam@gmail.com if you see any bugs or issues with the website so we can take a look into it. We haven't had complaints but with the recent work we put into the website last night, you never know when a bug will appear on our website.  Anyways I will see you guys tomorrow in our next post.

Everything About Reality TV Podcast-- Updates

                    So you guys are probably wondering what is going on with the YouTube channel and we got some news actually on the status on the platform. After it being created over a month and a half ago, we are OFFICIALLY going to launch it even if Big Brother doesn't happen. This came to me days ago and I didn't get to talk to Larry our Co-Founder & Senior Producer of Everything About Reality TV and he agreed to bring Tough As Nails to The YouTube Channel. This also means the channel will be active even before we start this brand new season, our 14th season which mind you it is very scary to think that we are this far into the podcast. So the other part of this that you may be wondering is what about before the 14th season? Well where are planning this both Video, YouTube & Audio ONLY:


June 3rd, 2020 (TODAY): 8 pm EST: Big Brother Favorite and Least Favorite Seasons (Audio ONLY)

June 4th, 2020: Test Stream W/ Larry to ensure we are ready to go!

June 10th, 2020: 8 pm EST/l Big Brother Canada Best Moments Podcast (Audio ONLY)
                         
June 18th, 2020: 7 pm EST- Big Brother Canada Legends Podcast W/ Chris & Larry (Live On YouTube)

June 20th, 2020: 8 pm EST- Big Brother Canada Legends Podcast W Chris & Larry (Audio ONLY)

Date & Time TBA: Survivor Legends Cast Podcast W/ Special Guest (Live On YouTube)
                            

Date & Time TBA: Survivor Legends Cast Podcast W/ Special Guest (Audio ONLY)


                  There is the timetable for now as we get towards the late part of this month, I will announce the summer timetable but there's content coming and you guys are also getting video content as well besides the Audio ONLY content. We're excited to be back on YouTube and excited to be returning to the platform! This is only Phase 1 of the bigger plan and honestly we cannot announce the summer stuff quite yet due to the fact we do not know what the status of both Big Brother 22 and Amazing Race Canada 8 is and I understand why if they decide to cancel both seasons or even push. I rather not announce anything till we actually know the status on the shows. I know you guys are starting to wonder but at least one of the podcasts for the summer, Tough As Nails is scheduled at this point which will be announced later date to be decided.

Social Media Frustrations....

               Chris isn't available today. He had to take a day off. I know it is out of the normal for his Staff to take over the blog but that is what we are here for to support him through the good times and the rough times. Last night, we lost 2 fans on our Facebook, one of them being his long time friends for over 10 years now, the other was a former staff that came in to replace me. However I am back to support him, we had an enormous amount of drama last night and Chris finally snapped. I ensure you, he's going to be fine. With me joining the fan page, this makes 56 so we gained a member. However it didn't bother him that he lost it more hurt that one of his long time friends deceived him and it hurts him the fact it was 10 + years of a friendship that really hit him hard. He had such a good momentum with the page and you guys have really enjoyed his content and the numbers have been up on the fan page, the analytics is what I mean. 


                 I understand his frustrations and why he is not on social media much today, maybe to talk to Larry but for the most part I will be keeping an eye on the pages and answering questions you guys may have. This means Facebook and Twitter I will be around to answer questions. He's taking the day to continue to work on Power Rangers Podcast and de-stress. I honestly do not like seeing him like this all up in arms mad and it's truly unhealthy. This was going on till 2 am this morning. Maybe him taking a podcast break was what he needed but he insists to bring out content. Back to the social media thing, it seems to be a trend with us losing and gaining but Facebook is one of the bigger focus on right now and that is to actually get past the 60 mark. His ultimate goal is to get to 100 and beyond that really. He's started to consider to close down the Facebook page and focus on Twitter and Instagram actually but I am sure he will continue to try and build up an audience especially on Facebook. He was so frustrated he wanted to just end this adventure but we all know he will be back bigger and stronger then before. So that is the reason why he's taken a day away from the Chris B On The Web Social Media and he will be back tomorrow, I promise. I will talk to you guys in the update post on Sunday.

Euro Truck Simulator Video Game Review

                 Here is my Euro Truck Simulator video game review. As you know I started with American Truck Simulator then moved over but I play both games, I'll rotate from time to time. However I have had fun with both versions of the game and the Euro Truck Simulator a bit more because you end up taking a boat and train for travel with the truck so it makes it a bit cooler really. This one is a bit different from the American version as the Euro you drive on the opposite side of the road. Honestly it took me sometime to get use to it and yes there was times I was on the wrong side of the road but that's OK. Either way I enjoy the game it is fun and gives me something to do on my spare time. Now review wise I'd give this a 8 out of 10 because I find it hard with directions especially with using the train or the ferry so I found it really tough to do that but either way I am happy. 


                 Overall I am pleased with the game and I know I didn't give it a full 10 but I cannot give all these reviews 10 all the time really. However it still deserves a fair rating and that I did for sure. I found the price of the game was very reasonable on Steam and if you like driving games this is the game I recommend to play this. Not much more I can say but this game is fun and you can spend hours driving around and deliver the trailers. I found a way to turn off the speeding tickets so now I can speed at my own risk and you can imagine how fast I go, sometimes 80 - 90 miles per hour... LOL. Anyways I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I will see you on tomorrow's post.

Chris B On The Web Weekly Updates [05-31-2020]

                 I know it has been very confusing with things changing constantly and with us figuring things out with the website and content right now especially with Everything About Reality TV. We got some really cool stuff coming to the podcast and no it won't be just me but the other hosts are going to try and come up with ideas for a podcast related to their show. However for this to work, we are making decisions that are tough for us and this is what they are:

1) No Video Platform for Everything About Reality TV until we know what the plan is for Big Brother 22 so video platform is at the stand still for now and right now we are 4 weeks pretty much as of tonight until Big Brother 22 is supposedly to start and we have not been told anything as of yet. Amazing Race Canada, I just do not think it is going to happen at this point, they haven't yet recorded it yet and makes me wonder if they are waiting till things are back to normal or thinking of waiting till next year this is why we are on waiting to announce anything video wise but we know Tough As Nails is a go at this point. 

2) We've added our Hosts as Editors so they can make posts and update you guys on shows and their podcasts. Larry and Jeff are Moderators and able to remove comments. 

3) The next thing I want to address is at this point, Staff wise, I am am going to say for right now is we are not looking for any new Staff at this point. I am very much happy with the team we got right now. I want to keep the team small for right now and at this moment I think it is just the best to grow slowly not fast.

              Right now with Everything About Reality TV going into "Off Season" Mode, we are making the decisions and constantly around the clock trying constantly assessing things and the situation here in Canada and over all the world as the CBOTW Studios remains closed till restrictions are lifted. Those are the updates for the week and I surprised Chris by getting this completed Wednesday of last week many days before this was published on the website. Anyways I will talk to you guys next week, same time as usual.

Plans For Everything About Reality TV 5th Anniversary

                   I know this has been an on going question since we hit the New Year what the plan is with the Podcast's 5th Anniversary on September 24th, 2020 of this year? Yes we are planning something and with the podcast between seasons, we just haven't thought about anything really. If I cannot get the entire Everything About Reality TV Team on, then it would be just Larry and I that record. However the reason I have kept a lot of information from you guys is not because I don't wanna give you guys information I do but right now it comes down to if the video platform will be launched and if Survivor comes back it comes down if we are going to be on YouTube in the fall and the shows is the main reason but we are talking about it behind the scenes it's just a waiting game on shows due to the shows may be held off till next year so we are waiting. However I will be inviting the other hosts on and it is first come and I do not want to over do the podcast guests and probably limit to 3 of us on the podcast but there is still time honestly to go and to decide things.


                   I know 4 months is not a very long time to be honest with you guys and I haven't stopped thinking about this big momentous occasion and I promise you guys we will do something even if video doesn't go through right away but again it depends when to launching the channel, if Big Brother happens in a few weeks from now, Survivor this fall, it comes down to all of that. If we do not launch video for quite sometime from now, then we will be definitely Audio ONLY but we will try and figure it out in the upcoming weeks from now. I got one idea in the back of my mind which I will explain in the upcoming weeks and I think it is a great idea I have. You will see but again if I do this idea then we will be doing the 5th Anniversary Live for sure! More details to come next week in a blog post.

5 Years Ago Yesterday, Larry and I Had Our First Big Brother Canada Finale! (Throwback Thursday Story)

                  5 years ago today, Larry and I started this annual Big Brother Canada Finales and I believe we started in the early years, Season 3 which is like 5 years ago. Mind you when we started doing those, Everything About Reality TV was in preliminary stages and under a complete different name and what not! Everything About Reality TV was 4 months later when it existed so we weren't doing Finale Recaps till Season 4 the following year when we were still on YouTube. So we had no pressure whatsoever especially after. Non of that was in existence yet! So we got to sit back and relax and enjoy the finale. Now 2016 and on that was when he came over for them then that was a lot of fun recaps and honestly we can admit not just the finale itself we enjoyed but the Finale chat podcasts that we did which is a tradition now each and every year minus this year as there was no finale due to essential services were only and Big Brother Canada was forced to end production so this was the first time in 5 years we did not get together but this would of been our 5th year but either way we're still considering this our 5th year even without a Finale. 


                 I remember one Finale we got ourselves Ketchup Doritos which I haven't really seen around the store or we made popcorn at the house. I remember one year he was snoring so damn loud I smacked him with my pillow LOL! Oh the memories honestly! I know he missed coming over for it this year but hopefully next year we can make this happen again and get back to it. I know you guys missed him on a podcast this year but he is going to be on a Podcast sooner then you know it! Few weeks time you will be hearing his voice whether we will be live or just recorded but we are making it up to you guys for this year. Don't worry I'm sure there will be more Finales and I am sure the show will be returning in 2021 as I've read up they are planning a 9th season. It was just unfortunate this happened this year but it is what it is and production made the right choice.

Taking Chris B On The Web More Seriously...

                 I have been thinking about things lately and really taking CBOTW seriously. I want to do things right as the last few months has been really busy for us getting things sorted out since the return of Everything About Reality TV and having three Staff departed on us. Honestly I want staff who are going to commit to our content and that is what we are doing. I know I am all over the place making decisions and deciding what is what right now and like Chris (Reality Teas) told me were trying things out and working around the issues together as a team.  I know things are confusing and you guys got ton of questions with things but in time you guys will know what is going on with the content. As you know Entertainment Man Podcast is put on the wayside right now I know you guys were wondering about that but don't worry you can find it under the archives page if you want to catch it up. With taking things a bit more seriously and making sure we fit every bit and pieces properly. It is a day to day thing and really I know you guys want information and we will give it to you guys. We can say tho we are bringing out content for you guys starting June 3rd, 2020 @ 8 pm EST and yes I am referring to Everything About Reality TV. 


                  Either way I am taking things a bit more seriously and been making changes with the website and added one more member of the team. However you will know more on this weekend's update post. Either way I wanna make sure things run smoothly and with things slowly shifting as we are exploring video platforms again, we have to change schedules around and constantly readjusting the scheduling and I think we got it figured out at this moment I think, no guarantees its is all up to what is going to happen with those two shows. Also I have started a Discord Community which isn't released publicly yet but will make it public soon! Going to get the team on there first before we make things public!

Pooligans Video Game Review

                 I do not really consider this a video game, game maybe but yea it is technically a video game but whatever you wanna call it. However I have been very addicted to it. It has been fun and something to do really. It gives me something to do. At first I wasn't very good at it but now I am getting better at it as the time continues on. Only issue I have with it is the amount of the game requests I was getting, it was very annoying in a way but hey it is the only way I am going to get better is to play other users online. There was a few times where they quit on me as I was way ahead of them but that was their choice. I find myself playing this game even when I am working on watching Power Rangers and get moving on those I find it easy to just stop playing if I need to switch the game. This game is very addicting and the best part of it all is it's FREE on Steam! Yep that's right it's FREE, ALL FREE!


                So the review of this game is 10 out of 10 like I said it is addictive and fun to play for many hours. I think I found a game I can play for hours on and end I think once I went 6 or 7 straight games winning which got boring constantly but either way I highly recommend this game on Steam is where you can find this game. Really tho I haven't had the time to really sit down and play it but with me working on Power Rangers Podcast, I am sure I will have plenty of time to actually play it till it is time for me to type up notes but that's another story for another day.

Podcast Schedule- OFFICIAL PRESS Release

                 This is the Official release of the schedule for Podcasts as of June 1st, 2020. I am excited to be bring back podcast content and we are raring to go! Right now Everything About Reality TV Podcast has 2 Off Season Podcasts already pre-recorded and ready to go. Anyways also Entertainment Man Podcast is scheduled to return to the lineup too in June along with Power Rangers Podcast in July. What a great lineup here is the regular line-up schedule for most of June up to a potential season:

Wednesdays: Everything About Reality TV (New Episode goes up every week, we just have to post up the episode the next 2 weeks that we have) 


                   There is the schedule for the podcasts and speaking of Everything About Reality TV Podcast, we have a guest coming on the podcast and you know them very very well as they are known for their yearly appearance on the podcast and if you know who I am talking about then that's great. Them and I had a couple of hours chat on Skype about this and we started to plan it out and it's going to be an amazing podcast as usual and this is the ultimate podcast and trust me it was quite difficult to produce to be honest.  However it will work. Now we are waiting on if we will do this on video or not as we do not know if we can launch the YouTube channel as you guys know we are awaiting if Big Brother 22 is a go or not so that is what we are waiting on at the moment. We will let you guys know if we do the podcast live or just on the Audio ONLY.

Chris B On The Web Weekly Update [05-24-2020]

              Well another week is here and it is time for another weekly update for Chris B On The Web. This week has been a bit of an unproductive as our boss man has had issues with sleep and unable to produce but did sleep last night for the first time in a week.  So today at some point he will be working on things. Anyways here is what is going on:


1. I want to address something that has bothered me for the last week or so. The amount of disrespect towards our Founder, Owner and Creator and to the Staff here @ Chris B On The Web. To maliciously call our content boring for no reason then to call us Trolls, is unacceptable. We work day in day out on content and to improve the quality of the website and we're getting there but show us respect, we're trying the hardest we can and without Chris part of CBOTW this weekend makes things a bit more difficult without him online this weekend and taking a personal weekend off from social media. 

2. We or I tried to tweak the website this morning so it had more of a sleek view for the website but that was a no go so the site went down briefly for an hour while I re-coded the menu and CSS which has actually been saved to a word doc like the pages as well. I apologize for the slight inconvenience but we're back up and running smoothly again. 

3. Everything About Reality TV- We are waiting an additional week. We have two OFF Season podcasts that are awaiting going up. Now there is a podcast coming out with both Chris and Larry and I think this week Chris needs to focus on Power Rangers Podcast as he has to get it done and get it done in a timely manner. It will be back and we wanna do a couple of Off Season podcasts and if we only do 2 or 3 Off Season Podcasts that's fine too. Also Chris is taking over the Survivor Recaps and will find a Big Brother Canada down the road when if and we know it will renewed.

4. Entertainment Man Podcast- It is still on Scheduled for the first week of June and he's keeping to it and is scheduling to record and edit it this week to get it done by the end of this week. He is going back to recording once a week and posting it up on Mondays @ 1 pm EST.

5. Power Rangers Podcast- As I said his sleep schedule has been not so good lately but with being up late or up all night but he could be working on Power Rangers Podcast. He hasn't been in the right frame of mind to work but today he's planning to watch episodes and really dig into it further this week. Hoping he's sleeping at night this week and we will see how that goes but his well-being comes first.

Everything About Reality TV Scheduling Announcements

                      Big News has come our way! I am very excited about this and I think this warrants this announcement! I am happy to say I can reveal Part of the Summer and the entire Fall lineup and also shows that we are currently waiting on at this point. You guys should of seen my reaction to the news of Survivor and Amazing Race 32 and I wish I darn well recorded my reaction to it and I was quite happy about it actually. But let's start with the Summer to what is confirmed followed by the Fall Schedule and finally what is awaiting to be confirmed:

Summer:

Tough As Nails- A New Reality TV competition and Everything About Reality TV is proud to say I am going to be covering myself. It will be on the Audio ONLY side of things for right now as we are just introducing you guys to the show at this point and it is new to our podcast programming and we wanna see if you guys like the idea of us recapping. What I heard it is running for 10 weeks so it will be a true test. Like I said with Music City please give me time to adjust to things.

Fall 2020:

Survivor 41- Now we do not know the theme or name for Survivor 41 as this was sprung on to us the other day and I guess it will be a surprise season for us! However as I said in the Winners At War, Billy will be taking it over and yes I promised him I'd come on for a recap one day and that will be done in the coming months.
Amazing Race 32- As you know I was ready to go with the recaps this week and it was pushed off to the fall. I will be hosting those and I also promised Larry I'd have him on as a promise to since there was no Finale Party as him and I do every year for Big Brother Canada. You will be hearing his voice on the podcast this fall at some point. 

Waiting Confirmation:

Big Brother 22- We are waiting on confirmation if they will do the season and this might of/been updated since this was written Wednesday morning during the night as I was up and couldn't sleep whatsoever. However Chris, Reality Teas is waiting my OK to get testing done on the channel for him and also his preview podcast done and recorded. It will be live on YouTube + Audio ONLY here on ChrisBOnTheWeb.com and other amazing platforms.
Amazing Race Canada 8- No confirmation yet and the Wiki Fandom said it doesn't seem likely it will happen this year and if it doesn't, it doesn't. Nothing we can do and I totally understand why they didn't do. 


              Either way we still have a great lineup and this podcast will not be going on a stand still, we will not be shutdown. We are going to be continuing to entertain you guys as much as we can and try give you that distraction. My team and myself will continue to keep you guys up to date on the two show but either way, we're all excited with this exciting news!


Chris
