End of The Year Review

             I know this year wasn't all that it was cracked up to be. Once again with the b.s. drama and being screwed over for the podcast made me realize I think I just need to do me for now on. No I am not firing Larry nor Joe at this point, they've done their job the last 2 months of all the changes that has happened. This year has been the worst and I am just well over this year honestly. I am fed up of this year and just ready for a fresh start and no drama whatsoever just a fresh look out on life moving forward and nothing will stop me from being successful with this website. 

            i know on the podcast I mentioned but with the way finale went and few things bothered me and I have decided to try and find a host for Survivor Recaps to start with. The CBOTW Show so it will be regular and some Reality TV shows and movies. Meaning the 2nd plan is now back into play and it will be in the goals for 2023 but that will be for tomorrow's post, I mean the post next year as this is the last day of 2022. At this time I would like to wish you all a very Happy and Safe New Year and I will talk to you all in the morning on New Years Day!

End of The Week Updates (Last Update For 2022) [12-30-2022]

           It is time for the last end of the week updates for 2022. Sad, I know but what a year it has been, full of non sense drama and hoping 2023 is a lot better then this year has been all together. Anyways here is the final updates for 2022:

Website: Mark has updated the entire website for 2023 and the pages updated were Schedule, About, YouTube, FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) and Contact Page all have been given an overhaul and thanks to him for his help on that, makes my job easier.

Discord: As you can see CBOTW has a Discord community, small, mighty and a great little community. Reason behind this is for the Live Streams I am going to be doing and outside of the community too as well. 

Power Rangers Collab: Starting Jan 2nd, 2023 I will be starting Power Rangers Dino Charge and Power Rangers Super Dino Charge and hoping to get it done in 2 - 3 weeks time so it is done. 

           That is all the updates for 2022 and I know I was unsure about end of the week updates this week but Mark made me realize there are updates so I decided to give the end of the week updates after all. I will talk to you all tomorrow for the End of The Year Review, then New Years Post on Sunday.

Gaming Updates [12-29-2022]

               I have one little update and that is the apartment building is looking good! I have the first floor built without the apartments built it is just an empty building right now. I am building the floors first before creating apartments etc as my niece has to work on the elevator system to go up and down the building and it works after her getting frustrated with other elevator that will not even be mentioned as it was ridiculous build honestly as they like it didn't seem to work whatsoever. There is a elevator shaft she built that is there and it is there as a fail attempt to working on the elevator shaft. So other projects on Minecraft working on snack bars and bathrooms but otherwise, that is it.

               I will be getting Rocket League for Epic Games instead so I can play with my nephew. I know I have it on Steam but switching to Epic games for a change instead. I am planning to stream it when I get a better computer. I have kind of gave up on the Binding of Isaac: Rebirth. I just find the game impossible to succeed in the game so I have just put it t the side for right now and will go back. Those are the updates, I will talk to you all tomorrow.

I'm Preparing For 2023!

             With 2023 getting closer and the New Year is this weekend, I am finalizing things for 2023. I am figuring out things for The CBOTW Show and I think I may just keep things simple and either do 1 show on there weekly or monthly. I want to simplify things and make things easier. I am over thinking on things and I should be on a more simpler side of things. Start out slowly then grow it from there on out.

               2023 will be a year of growth and 0 drama and 0 problems moving forward. This year has been horrendous running things and I am just ready for a stress & drama free year with no problems. 2023 will be another year of growth. Cause the last half of this year things have been on the up and up despite the non stop drama in the community. I am ready to continue growing this and with the addition of Discord this community is just getting better and better everyday. That is the post for today, will talk to you all tomorrow!

End of The Week Updates [12-23-2022]

            It is time for the end of the week updates and I am writing this 5 days prior as this week will be crucial and busy for me. Anyways here is the updates:

Website: Now that The CBOTW Show is on the side but working on things behind the scenes to getting it ready to go. I have put The CBOTW Show in the archives but it seems it was already there but the page itself was changed from the upcoming episodes so it doesn't seem like it will be returning at the moment. Also changed the about page for a bit so it is now live and different. 

Larry Moving: Now I have spoken to him about some things and I brought up if he is staying put after his mom retires and he said he will be moving north which means the podcasts we do will be done online and things will be changing but it will not be for another 2 - 2.5 years from now. We will talk about that later on and we have a plan. 

              Nothing else to report minus me working on notes for Entertainment Man Podcast nothing else and getting those finished. As I am typing this ahead of time, I do not know and maybe I could go back and edit but if I don't then this is the post you see but you can't see the change. Anyways that is the post, Merry Christmas to you all, there will be no blog till Tuesday as the studio is closed for Christmas so we'll be back on Tuesday.

The CBOTW Show New Plan

           The CBOTW Show is constantly evolving since the announcement of it returning last month. I know I said I was gonna hold back and I am but for Larry and I we are waiting to be on the air on that podcast. We are waiting till Power Rangers Collab Podcast slows down and it is coming in the next year from now. Plus sadly Larry will be moving in the next year and a half to 2 years back up north as his mom is retiring so this means he will not be in the studio anymore and the boom arm will be dismantled and put away for the time being. 

          However this doesn't stop me from finding hosts for the following shows: 

- Survivor (Host for Survivor 44 and beyond)

- Big Brother Canada (Will host for season 11 and will be offered for Big Brother US in the summer time)

            That is the plan for right now and we will grow it down the road. Will start with these two podcasts then continue to grow this thing bigger and bigger and you never know I may end up popping back in more permanently down the road if Entertainment Man Podcast ever stops which it isn't for right now but least I have a plan for later on especially. That is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow for end of the week updates.

Gaming Updates

            Another update is here for video games. Not much more to report but as you can see on the right hand side the apartment building was torn down as I was not happy with it and need to do a full on rebuild on it at a smaller scale. Also built out back of the houses in the dome a barn full of animals that is over crowing the pens but no shortage of food right now which is great to have. 

          Stardew Valley, I streamed on the Facebook page for an hour and was quiet so I'm not even sure if I was even streaming as it was quiet but that's OK, I won't be streaming there anymore. I have moved the horse stable closer in to near the house without having to look for the building. Also in the midst of updating the tools and have a shortest of iron right now but I will fix that very quickly. As for The Binding of Isaac Re-birth, I am not even going to talk about it as it's getting more and more frustrating. That is the updates for gaming and I will talk to you all tomorrow for a special post about The CBOTW Show.

Avatar The Way of the Water Movie Review

               I was completely confused by the movie and I've never seen the first one ever. I kind of got bored of it and hard time to focus even towards the end and I didn't like the fact it was sooo long of a movie, about 3.5 hours long. However I did like some of the scenes in the movie without spoiling the movie. The action in it was really good but it was the length that was the problem with the movie. Too long and I was getting stiff from sitting even in a reclining chair they have now at the theatres still too long to sit. 

                To be honest I am not sure if I'd actually watch a 3rd movie but we'll see, I just wanna see what happened with the Commander who seemed to survived in the end but that's not really a spoiler but it is I guess in the end. Anyways that is the post and review and I would give it a generous 5 out of 10 not bad bad but it's more of in-between right now on my rating for this movie. Now this is the first time I have scored a movie low in any review I have done over the years but cannot always be satisfied right. I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Catching Up With You All!

          Well, after a week away and the drama that happened with me and the fan page being blocked for no apparent reason and all we asked is you do not block us, we needed you to see updates and it is rude to do that, so I just went off and ended up deleting the group all together. It is the fan page that Mark, Larry and I wanna focus on growing and recently it's started to peak again since we returned and with Mark the views on the page and the interest has gone down for a week or two but recently started to peak as we continued on to post every day. I know Saturday we went dead quiet and that was cause of the issues in the group we were busy dealing with.

             I do have something I want to mention to you guys and Larry and I talked about it over the weekend when we went to the movies which there will be an update on that. In better news, I will be opening up The CBOTW Show for auditions for Survivor and Big Brother Canada Recaps in January and February to try and grow a community within a community and excited for this to get underway. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow for a gaming update.

End of The Week Updates [12-16-2022]

              Not sure how Chris does end of the week updates but I am going to give it a go this week as he is still MIA and hasn't been returning messages all week long so he must gotten himself into a ton of work this week perhaps. 

Chris- I hope he returns on Monday to blogging as he's been off and away from the blog all week long but if not then I will be covering him for another week but hope to get a message from him this weekend on an update about that. 

Entertainment Man Podcast- What I have seen by his Tweets he has finished and wrapped up recording Entertainment Man Podcast for 2022 and now is on break along with Power Rangers Collab for recording wise. 

Power Rangers Collab- What I heard through the grapevine is Chris and Larry had a top secret meeting yesterday night about he collab so they must be cooking up a storm with ideas for the new year at this point. 

Website Updates- He was going to update the about section but we never got to it this week, maybe after the holidays we will sit down and do some revisions to it perhaps. 

Reminder of Holiday Blog Schedule: Dec 24th - 26th, No blog; Dec 27th - 30th, 2022- Normal Blog; Dec 31st, 2022 7 Jan 1st, 2023, No blog with blogs resuming on Mon. Jan 2nd, 2023.

            That is the update, we hope you guys have a great weekend and will see you around the CBOTW Community!

My Feelings About The Video Projects Team

                 Things were never always roses behind the scenes and like I mentioned yesterday, there was a ton of drama. I will not mention names but I know I said camera man but which camera man in particular I will say as he had a ton of camera men back in the day. particularly the one he had in late 2008 - 2010 there was always some kind of drama. I remember Skype call with the boss man Chris and he looked stressed the heck out. I asked him if he was OK and he said no. Chris even mentioned and a small disclaimer he's given me the greenlight long before as he wanted me to do a string of these posts so I have his permission to talk about it as long as names to people he doesn't talk to anymore weren't mentioned minus his which he was fine with that. 

                     Back to the story but after the 50th episode he was threatening to fire a bunch of people on his team that ran the event and camera as you guys didn't know he blew up on camera and now has become a bit of a viral video on YouTube with 2 to 300 views racked up on the video. My question to him that night was why didn't he get someone to help him with the ice as he went all the way down to Foodland on his own by his own place without help and had to carry it all the way back after.  I wouldn't have blame him for firing people but I know he has a big heart inside and couldn't do that. 2 people could of been let go. I gave Chris even to this current day if you need to remove someone then you have to and even gave him guidelines to reasons why and hopefully this helps with his decisions if he choses to come back to ChrisBOnTheWeb next week. I will speak to you tomorrow morning for the "End of The Week Updates."

My Connection To ChrisBOnTheWeb

                Chris and I have quite a history with each other. I was there between 2009  and 2012 which I was involved with his former team the one he's mentioned he's despised all these years cause of the drama that went on behind the scenes and I was there when it went all down with his former camera man and his camera man's now ex.  Which you all know who I am referring to as the Survivor podcast that was cancelled towards the end of April before the season was up. I was there when bunch of his team ended up quitting on him in April of 2010, less then two months prior to the series going on hiatus. 

                  I was there when someone got into the xat chat and I was only an owner and he was out of town with a group and his girlfriend, Jess at the time. I have seen him breakdown, raging, wanting to quit all the time and what not. I was like an Admin for TVPT back in the day. Now roll 10 years later, I always wanted to know what Chris made of himself so I searched The Video Projects Team, nothing whatsoever of the whereabouts of him minus his old YouTube channel which is now permanently dormant for the most part.  I looked his name up and found out he ended The Video Projects Team and moved to what he is doing now and saw he was between his management team and I joined on. I kept tabs on him between June 2015 and now to what was going on from his depression and leaving YouTube to being a successful podcaster. Now tomorrow's post I want to do a post about the truth behind TVPT how I really felt. Don't worry I will keep it clean but talk to you all tomorrow.

The CBOTW Show- New Development

             The newest development before all of Chris walking away from ChrisBOnTheWeb is he is/or was planning on bringing on 2 hosts one for Survivor 44 and Big Brother Canada. He was planning to go that route but not sure what the story is behind that podcast now whether he is still planning this or not. Like I mentioned yesterday, he's now gone, not sure how long or if he is planning to return right now. I really like the fact he wants to involved other people on The CBOTW Show and trying to grow that podcast.

              There is not much else I can say as right now he's stubborn like a mule refusing to answer private messages both outside of the group chat and in that group chat so right now I do not have the answers you guys are wanting so it is quite difficult to provide answers. I wish he wouldn't be so stubborn especially with the team. However I have known him for 10 + years and when he says he's done, he's quitting something he will be back in a week from now. I know him too well. In the meantime if I get more information, you guys will be the first to know and I will talk to you at 11 am EST for another post.

Chris Has Gone M.I.A. from ChrisBOnTheWeb?

              Well Chris has gone M.I.A from ChrisBOnTheWeb and what do I mean by that? Well he's apparently left CBOTW and a lot has happened. I will not go into details but if that is what he wishes even for a little while then I do respect his decision and I will do the best I can to hold down the fort in the meantime. I guess I am next in charge as Larry doesn't know a lot about websites and the day to day but I know for a fact Chris is still in the team group chat at this moment and he says he's done and over ChrisBOnTheWeb yet he's still in the group and hasn't specifically told me I am taking over the community. 

               I have no clue what is going on but all I know is he's ignoring my messages right now so I am just leaving him be. Question and concerns I have what happens when it is time to upload Entertainment Man Podcast Thursday as that is his last bonus. He's said Entertainment Man has nothing to do with ChrisBOnTheWeb and same goes for the collab and The CBOTW Show. Question is where is he going to put the collab without a website or proper website so to speak.  A lot of unanswered questions he will not answer as his stubbornness is showing right now and maybe in time I will have answers what is going on with him. I will keep you guys posted but will talk to you all tomorrow morning.

End of the Week Updates [12-10-2022]

         Well another week has come to an end, it is time for another end of the week updates. It has been a strange but productive week with me only working 6 out of the 7 days this week due to my birthday but here are the updates:

Facebook: It is no secret I am back on the platform but Mark has been posting as the fan page for the last few days and I will be posting to the fan page this afternoon for the collab. You guys cannot really tell if it is him or I posting tho. I will try and stream in the afternoon for an hour maybe show you guys what I've been doing on my spare time on my server perhaps. 

Entertainment Man Podcast: Between recording episodes to complete this season in general as it's been a foot race to the end game for this year and generally this time of the year is a busy one wrapping things up for the podcast and getting ready for the next year.

         Anyways that is the post for today, not much to report. Minus one last collab being posted up for the year this afternoon but other then that Entertainment Man Podcast is the focus and will get into detail on Monday about that what my plan is right now but enjoy the rest of the weekend I will talk to you on Monday.

17 Years Doing Online Media! [What a Journey It's Been!]

             17 years.... Wow! I started this journey 17 years ago at the age of 20. I am now 37 years old and now in my 8th year of ChrisBOnTheWeb and closing in to breaking "The Video Projects Team" number of days it ran which is 3,261 days which in the next 10 months that will be a reality. My goal is to reach that 10 year mark and still is a goal to this day. I am totally off topic aren't I? When I started this journey, I was very inexperienced and very immature and had no idea what on earth I was doing. 

               However 17 years later I have learned a lot not just the coding side of things but learning what works and making the correct decisions that will make me a success. I know the last 2 years has been rough but finally got the hang of things and I just gotta find the right people to be involved with the website. Another 3 years and I hit 20 years in online media and 8 till the 25th anniversary. Either way it's been an adventure on it's own and weaving through all the ups and down being a content creator gives but in the end it is very rewarding in the end and I look forward to the years coming. I promise to have my favourite drink and celebrate today this journey that I have been on and I look forward to the next year and many years to come and I will talk to you all tomorrow.

More Information on The CBOTW Show

             I know nothing has been said much but this is what we can tell you guys as of right now about The CBOTW Show:

Platforms it is on: The CBOTW Show will be on only & ITunes to start with. Starting small and slow on things. There is no plans for YouTube, I feel like it is more appropriate for Audio ONLY and help grow even more.

How Often will it go up:  That is up in the air. Larry and I will be sporadic as we are currently still focused on Power Rangers Collab as we are still currently under contract with that podcast and once that finishes, we transition to The CBOTW Show full time. 

What is planned to be covered on there? Right now TV Shows and Movies and Power Rangers Movies will and is on top of our list there has been talk on other Reality TV series and trying it out again but taking time to think about it.

Finally When Is This Starting? I am holding on to that announcement for right now. We do know when Larry and I are starting but if other shows pop up then we have to decide on that. 

              That is the post for today, I will talk to you guys tomorrow for another post.

Big Thank-You To My Team!

             A BIG thank-you to my entire team, Mark & Larry for covering for me while I was in Facebook Jail! Without them, ChrisBOnTheWeb wouldn't have ran as smooth as it did, well minus the fan page being inactive for a month but I assure you we are back up and running and only lost 1 follower on there and we kind of know who it was but that's not the point. 

             The point is we are back to normal and as of this morning posting regular content links on there. Please give us some time to acclimate back to the Facebook community and I give Mark a crash course on how to run the page and the ins and out of the fan page as he never had to deal with The Video Projects Team fan page and not even sure if we had one in 2009 and I think it wasn't till 2011 or 2012 when we actually made one for the former team we had. Anyways we just need time and on Monday, I will have to add Larry to the Moderator list on there too. However that is the post for today and I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Minecraft and Stardew Valley Updates

              So I have built a little production village as I have built random islands to put villagers on to see how long they can last like on the TV Show Survivor. Also I have torn the old village down in the main hub with the railways and built a working barn for the animals and seems to work well and looks great. Also the Garden centre was realigned inside as the glass building was extended a bit and everything now looks amazing! I have also got one apartment building room or apartment built to see what it looks like and I truly like it.

              Stardew Valley, I have made some progress. One day I made 36,434 dollars from Pumpkin and Corn but obviously spent it on stuff as I made another barn so I can get more animals in there which I still gotta do. I am currently in winter season and only crops is in the green house or as I call it the garden centre. Not sure what other animals I can put on there but will see in time. I wanna add a mill and a slime hutch eventually but will take time. I plan on saving up for right now. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Birthday Today & Interim Manager Role

               I know a lot has gone on with ChrisBOnTheWeb in the last month. With Mark taking the reigns twice cause of a quit on top of my team changes being made in the last month. Yes he's Interim Manager and this is his test. As you know my management team has been shook up so many times in the last 2 years during this pandemic to a point, I had to let people go for not pulling their weight on the podcast to people just quitting especially this year not even finishing the season out. That's another blog post for this week. 

             Other note, today is my 37th birthday. Yeah I've become an old man now. 3 years till the big 4-0. Not doing too much today, going out for lunch with a friend, coming home to celebrate with my parents. Will be seeing my niece and nephew, brother hopefully but even writing this Sunday morning it is tough to tell cause the kids have hockey practice at 6 pm which is very important. Anyways that is the post for today and I am going to move the end of the week updates to Saturday as Friday, I am doing a special 17 year post in Online Media. I will talk to you all tomorrow.

End of The Week Updates [12-02-2022]

              Another week has gone by and it time for another end of the week updates. Been a very topsy turvy week here at studio but I think, I have things very much under control but here are the updates:

Website: Mark, Larry and I did some changes to the website as you know, there is a full bio of my entire journey in media for almost the last 17 years I have been doing this. Also the Schedule has been updated as there is no events remaining for this year as I am unable to go due to my mom recovering from knee surgery still which is understandable. Frequently Asked Questions was way out of date and hasn't been updated in over a year probably so we updated it. 

Entertainment Man Podcast: With the season slowly wrapping up as I said on my Instagram Stories this week, if I am not getting a request after the 12th which is a Monday, I will be closing out interview requests and will be a topic for the end of the year. Details for when requests open again are coming on Finale week for the podcast. 

            That is about it for updates for the week, I gave you enough information on the collab and I cannot wait for the next few weeks as things slowly wrap up and I can officially start working on things for 2023. I will talk to you all on Monday, have a great weekend!
