End of The Week Updates [09-29-2023]

               Another crazy week has concluded and first big update is Chris is no longer doing end of the week updates and I will be taking over the reigns each and every week to lower down the stress levels he is going through. He's been extremely busy with both Entertainment Man Podcast and The CBOTW Show plus getting Power Rangers underway he's just been super, super busy behind the scenes. Yes he has been online along with myself and even Larry are working non stop to get things done. 

             The Discord Team has been keeping an eye on things while our team have been working constantly behind the scenes as Chris stated it is all hands on deck right now as both Chris and Larry want to finish up Power Rangers so they can prepare to finish up with Season 30 in 2024 as that is the plan. I know in January, Chris is preparing to work on Ghostwriter series from the 1990's as a nostalgia for both Chris and Larry growing up. So again, it is all hands on deck, we have Power Rangers wrapping up, 10th anniversary planning going on. Filming 5 min segments from The Entertainment Man Talk Show, so we are a very busy team. That is the updates for today, did them a bit different from how Chris does it. Have a great weekend and I will talk to you at the end of next week!

Minecraft Updates!

               Outside of my job as a graphic designer, community manager of ChrisBOnTheWeb, 10th anniversary planning and so on I've been asking Chris to turn on the Minecraft server as I have had the itch to work on the office tower. We have completed the structural part of the building standing 15 stories tall, the tallest structure we have built thus far on the building. Chris and I have taken a break but there is no way for the snow as we're in the snowy biome can come in unless it blows in but that wouldn't happen. Next step is to encase the building in the blue glass around this epic building. 

              We want to try and finish it by the end of the year at the most as it's been an on going project on the community server for the past several months. Maybe 5 - 6 months perhaps. I know Chris is going to be wanting to work on the subway next is the next big project to replace the above railway to the villagers and the other one to a random island as for the jungle that issue hasn't been addressed and sounds like the above railway will remain where it is for the foreseeable future. I will talk to you tomorrow as Chris has granted me the task of the end of the week updates from here on out.

10th Anniversary, Reunion Plans & More!

         Well 10th anniversary has see the turn for the worst to good times to bad but now we have a general idea what we want to do with it. The Entertainment Man Talk Show was in the talks but then again that has become a thing of the past now. With me lowering down what I wanted to some kind of reunion, there will be some kind of The Entertainment Man Talk Show reunion, one with Eric, one with Justin and Larry. Just two as I do not want to over do 10th anniversary. 

         This is why the schedule that we had was thrown away. Yes I'd like to do a reunion show of some sort but me to do a full in studio and on location isn't my thing anymore. I am a podcaster full time. Web series isn't my jam no more, I retired from that but still willing to do two podcasts dedicated to the series and the team celebrating 10 years together. Anyways that is the most, Kelsie will be covering for me tomorrow not cause I don't want to but she wants to do a gaming update for you as her and I have been busy on the Minecraft server so be on the lookout for that tomorrow and I will talk to you all on Friday!

Taught My Community Manager How To Do HTML!

           I have been doing is mentoring my Community Manager, Kelsie, big shoutout to her especially keeping things afloat while I was off for the weekend and maybe I will do that once a month but that is not the point of this post but I have been teaching her how to do HTML code which is the basis on this website. I plan on teaching her the menu bar code and the CSS eventually as she's asked me how it is done and the website is built which I have no problem telling people. I really have her brother to thank as he helped build the first ever menu bar back in 2016 when the transition to podcasting full time was made. 

        So I even have given her the opportunity to try it herself on a notepad on her computer and I took the code and put it on a side test and how easy it works out for her. I even showed her what happens when you put a broken code the craziness it causes to all the text. So this way she knows what happens if you screw up the code like I've done hundreds of time and the fact I had to redo the entire code. I love teaching people things and one of the reasons this blog and Entertainment Man exists right now is to teach you what I know. Maybe I will teach you the basis in the coming weeks but that is the post for today and as always I will talk to you all tomorrow.

CBOTW Media is Focusing on 2 Podcasts

             With all the changes with ChrisBOnTheWeb Media, all 3 of us on the team have decided to primarily focus on Entertainment Man Podcast and The CBOTW Show. Things have actually done really well and why change things up at this moment? Like really? If it is working then there is no need for change. We wanna focus on continuing to producing both of these podcasts as it has really become something special to us and very very popular. 

             Plus I do have a ton of 10th anniversary stuff to plan for 2024 and that will be mainly my focus as well so I have a ton to do over the course of the next year to prepare for what is going to be a very busy busy year with podcasts, blogs, events and 10th anniversary but we have it all under control. Just take things one thing at a time that matters and I have my amazing team to help me out with everything. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow for another post.

End of The Week Updates [09-23-2023]

                           Another week has come to an end, it is time for another end of the week updates. Now Chris has been absent the last 2 days due to some mental health reasons but will be back hopefully on Monday. Here's what's been going on with ChrisBOnTheWeb Media:

Website: As I said this morning on a very long winded post of updates, Chris has changed the YouTube page to just "Entertainment Man Podcast" and evidently may be the only channel ChrisBOnTheWeb Media actually owns. Chris is fed up of the negative and trolls on the platform which was one of the reasons he quit. Which you can go back to yesterday's blog hence the reason I moved up the end of the week updates to this morning. 

Entertainment Man Podcast: With the 200th episode now wrapped up he can continue to create episodes and there will be no more YouTube Shorts nor he will not be doing TikTok no more as he's taken those both out of the equation and wants to focus on the main shows for right now. Also he's going back to the weekly shows on YouTube and audio and the every second week bonus episodes on every 2nd Thursday on audio only platforms.

The CBOTW Show: Despite him being off from the day to day operations this weekend, he's gotten back into Power Rangers and really putting the effort to getting it finished so they can officially record finally. 

            Finally Chris is currently under a messenger ban so he can actually answer messages on the Fan Page, so if you message the fan page I will be the one to answer the messages and should be back Thursday evening next week. If he needs more time off you will hear from me but enjoy your weekend and I will talk to you around the community.

Events & YouTube!

          As you may know Chris is M.I.A. right now and it's cause of a lot of problems and drama but I will not talk about it. However the insults to Entertainment Man Podcast's YouTube Channel is really getting to him. He's started to regret returning to YouTube after his first initial retirement. However he is going to monitor the comments and if this continues, he will 1) block you no chance to return 2) Turn off the comments for good. 3) Decide to leave YouTube and go back to Audio ONLY.

           Now with events wise he has pulled back on Toronto Christmas Market as he doesn't feel safe with the crime rate in Toronto right now however it is strange he kept the Royal Winter Fair on the list but that could also soon be off the list soon as well. I understand that and time will tell. Chris also mentioned to me that Tyrone is also up in the air as there hasn't been a parade since December 2019 before Covid actually started and if there is a parade, he will go but if not then he will be removing it. But that is today's post, I will be covering for him tomorrow. Not sure when he will be back but please stay tuned on the ChrisBOnTheWeb Social Media accounts and I will chat with you tomorrow at 11 am EST.

ChrisBOnTheWeb 10th Anniversary

             I know we had a solid plan with the 10th anniversary but that has now gone away, well not gone away it's been scrapped the entire plan that we have. I probably will not have a bloody schedule till January which is when we should be releasing the entire schedule publicly anyways. I did post it in the private Facebook group the entire schedule or Kelsie has but she removed it after the numerous of changes we made to the 10th anniversary. This is why we have to make sure we are 150% sure that this is the plan we wanna do moving forward and stick to the schedule. Don't forget we are still in the early planning stages of planning before 2024 comes around but should have it done by end of the year.

             So end of December for the schedule to be released on the group then January 2nd for the schedule to be released publicly on the website. I have spoken about it on the podcast once or twice that is being released this week and on the weekend. I have to remember that we need to go through all the details with the events of 2024 and have to remember to go through all the information before release the information. We might of jumped ahead of ourselves and we want to make sure we have everything perfect. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow for the end of the week updates.

The CBOTW Show is Struggling....

            I do not know what on earth is going on with The CBOTW Show. I've officially resigned from Power Rangers Podcast yet I'm still working on it in case things work out. Not sure what I did to my co-host as their normally on by now and starting to wonder and worry. I could just finish it on my own perhaps. That is always an option in the end to getting it finished and done and over with. We will see. There is other options for doing the other shows and people really enjoy the solo ones with me actually. 

         I wish I knew the answers to the problems in the content department of ChrisBOnTheWeb. I just cannot solve all the problems of ChrisBOnTheWeb Media in a day. Takes time and effort. I know I am fighting depression and struggling to get everything done and I just do not know how to get through all of these problems and workload that has piled right up from editing the podcasts to these blogs I am just way over my head with work. Plus 10th anniversary now backed up which I will address more tomorrow but thank you for reading this post and I will talk to you all tomorrow!

What's Going on With The Web Series Reunion?

               With The Entertainment Man Talk Show, well production has been on and off. Yeah it's 2015 - 2016 all over again. I have been feeling frustrated with YouTube as a whole. Well I have now scrapped the entire reunion special but there is plans for 2024 to still do it but as part of Entertainment Man Podcast. I think that would be the perfect fit, more of a perfect for this situation. Yeah I have moved on from The Entertainment Man Talk Show.

            Having my former team on my podcast to share their experiences with the series and what they are up to now years later on. There will be 3 of them, hopefully, maybe perhaps but we will see what we can come up with! So there is going to be a reunion of some sort just gotta work on it. Like I will be mentioning in my podcasts this week and weekend, podcasts are more my thing now. However always room for a reunion from time to time and plus I have said this before, 10th anniversary is coming up it is truly a perfect fit for the upcoming milestone year for us! 10 year anniversary as of January 1st, 2024 as I will be live on New Years Day and there will be something going on every week on the fan page.

            Another week has come to an end and time for some updates:

Website: As spoken about this morning on Social Media, Kelsie and I jumped on a call late last night and started fiddling around with this website and have officially added the 10th Anniversary tab to the website's menu bar after fiddling around with the code on the menu and the code in the CSS in the back end. Nothing is active where it drops down yet and it will once we finalize the schedule for 2024 and hoping to drop the entire schedule by November 30th, 2023. Full details will be coming on Monday's blog post.

I Am All Over The Place... AGAIN!

               Again, I am not up to my usual standards when it comes to blogs, to podcasts, I am just not myself lately. I am all over the place honestly. I have... I am lost for words. From communication problems with my team to this, no blog today. This is getting way out of hand now. This has to change and fast. I have lost followers cause of no blog or content isn't on certain platforms. So yeah it's gotten really bad and this is where I am needing to take action before it is too late. 

            So moving, I have to start checking my list and I have a list on my desktop as you can see on the right hand side that is how I am tracking that needs to be done but I have spoke about this before in the past. However there is some tweaking to do if I am to get blogs ready for the next day then I need to actually do it the night before, meaning get it done, make it a priority. I've spoken about prioritizing on LinkedIn, this blog, the podcast... Pretty much anywhere. It is good to tweak the way you have your thinks to do and this is definitely a wake call for me. I want to thank you guys for reading today's blog and apologies for the lateness and promise to have the next one out on time tomorrow and moving forward.

I LEARNED communication is key!

            Last week I learned the hard truth that I felt like I just wasted my time mentoring someone to get their podcast up and running. However that blew up especially on the Discord community I have. Maybe this was an entire sign for me that it should just remained Kelsie, Larry and I perhaps? Maybe I grew CBOTW too fast once again perhaps. I don't think that was the case though, the point is I think this is a learning experience for me. What do I mean by this? I mean, yes I have been trying to communicate and this is something the remaining team I have to work on is communication a bit more. This is where being a Transformational Leader comes into play and I need to start working on communicating.

                  Do not forget it's just not me but it is also with the other party and they have to in return. Last week's incident has really inspired me to keep on improving things with ChrisBOnTheWeb and I have really come a long way since the start of August so it has shown and just going to keep on going. I am not going to let this bring down the positive vibes of the team and I am about the positive vibes not negativity and I have started to become a more positive and happy person. Anyways that is the post for today, I will speak to you all tomorrow.

Loaded Perogi [Curly Fries Poutine Food Review, Orono Fair]

            As this was part of the Orono Fair event, we grabbed food and thought, hey it's a food review so why not do a food review from it. Usually I would take a picture but I couldn't wait to indulge into the curly fries poutine which had curly fries, cheese curds, green onions and gravy on it, boy it was really good. Gooey, cheesy, just super super good. Now I got this from Loaded Perogi which is well known in our region it is a popular place where you can get Perogi's as well.

                I would give this a 10 out of 10, service 10 out of 10 even though they almost forgot about my drink that I ordered. Only complain is the cost, how much it costed me for just curly Fries poutine was around 15 dollars and 4 bucks for a pop which is outrageous especially for a drink. Just really despicable and not sure if I'd go back in the future as it was really expensive for both things. Too expensive so price wise I would give a 1 all day. Anyways that is my review for this week and I will speak to you all tomorrow.

Orono Fair 2023!

           This weekend, I attended the Orono Fair 2023 for the second year in a row as before we miss two years due to COVID. Anyways, fantastic time with my dad. At the start we looked around the arena which mind you had no ice yet for the hockey season. Anyways, our local transit was there which I got some information on routes for the 507 route. They even had a Jenga game for the kids and that instantly brought back a lot of memories as a kid playing it. And yes I got a picture of me in front of the Zamboni in the arena, I had to! 

           Then we watched the Antique Tractor pull on the one side then we switched to the other side which was bad with the wasps around us constantly driving us insane. Then we grabbed food and watched some more tractor pull, followed by looking at the tractors on static display that has been or just sitting there. Looked around at the rides and activities and there is a board where you put a ball in and it goes to the top and goes down. Like a Plinko board from the Price is Right. Also the cows, sheep and pigs were there as well.  Cows were mooing at me I said something and the one mooed at me like it understood me. There was horses as well. Anyways we had a wonderful time and I hope you guys enjoyed reading this blog and I will speak to you all tomorrow.

End of the Week Updates [09-08-2023]

             Another week has concluded and of course it ends with typical drama in our community Discord which will not be tolerated moving forward. So with that there has been changes to the team:

The CBOTW Show: As I announced on the private group, Larry and I were about to add an additional member to the podcast but that has all changed now and will now remain Larry and I moving forward and will continue on with what we are planning especially with the looming final 4 episodes we need to record together before we start prepping for Cosmic Fury!

Website: So the change to the team page has been readjusted once again and plan on keeping it that way for right now. Probably for a very long time. 

This Weekend: I plan on working on Power Rangers and plan on hoping to attend the Orono Fair this weekend as I technically cancelled going but the door is open but will be up to my dad if he wants to go. I really do wanna go as we plan on going for the Tractor Pull which is always one of my favourite things at the event. 

            Anyways those are updates for the week, I learned a lot this week about myself and I will talk about that on Tuesday but for right now have a great weekend and as always I will talk to you all on Monday for a brand new week of blogs.

Been Rethinking on Things!

           I have been rethinking things through with the 10th anniversary and with Covid-19 cases on the rise in the states, makes me worried about the cases getting bad up here again which can really threaten the 10th anniversary plans for 2024. So in case I have re-done the schedule for 2024:

April 2024: The Entertainment Man Talk Show- Reunion Tour- Will go to old locations we filmed at and remembering where we were when we filmed down there and what not. 

June 2024: The Entertainment Man Talk Show- Reunion Show- With interviews from Eric, Larry and Justin, the original OG member and the two that helped me finish off the series in 2014 and 2015.

November 2024: 10th Anniversary celebrations, will Vlog the behind the scenes and moments in the celebrations to post onto YouTube. Will take place around or on the 14th of November. Also  a Discord video chat on the Thursday night 7 pm EST followed by a stream on Instagram and Facebook at 8 pm EST. 

Side Notes:  The Entertainment Man Talk Show will have some behind the scenes look at things a little extra stuff to do and this is why Power Rangers will be a lot quieter then normal during the year. Will still record once a month or once every 2 months between it all. 

         That is the list  and this is more of a permanent list moving forward and I or my team will not be making any changes in the future. As always thank you for reading and I will talk to you all tomorrow!

I dunno what the plan is moving forward with TV Recap wise but we'll see. For now I wanna do some movies for now especially that Halloween season is upon us I plan on actually doing some classic horror film reviews. I have a couple in the back of my mind. Psycho, Halloween being two of them. Anyways that is the post for today, just a little update for you guys and as always I will talk to you all tomorrow!

End of The Week Updates [09-01-2023]

              Another week has come to an end and here are the first set of updates for the first Friday of September:       

10th Anniversary Updates: After the mishaps I was causing and funny story, I was going through my stuff and still had hard copies for the event I could of used and this is after I had redone everything that was destroyed/deleted. However I am back on track now and a little over budget by 12 dollars. I do not how the heck I managed that but I could of miscalculated the numbers and that could of been an user era perhaps but I have to remember that I am taking this budget from a event to event bases but still I do not know how I ended up beyond the budget by 12 bucks.

Entertainment Man Podcast: Things are going great recorded and have it ready for this weekend's episode. Now I have more time to work further on other projects here in the studio:

Studio Updates: This studio is getting some new shelves for the drawers that are just piled up in the corner as you enter the studio itself. Next week, it will started to be worked on next week. 

The CBOTW Show: This weekend I am going full throttle on Power Rangers Podcast, I have or should have had it finished by now honestly. I am so far behind on it and it is a must to finish so I hope to finishing it by the a week Sunday so I can start typing up notes and have it ready for when Larry returns.

Studio Closed Monday?:  I know this weekend is a long weekend but with me strapped for time with the podcast with Larry, the studio will be open all weekend long including Monday. Gotta get going on the grind and use to the grind these days.

             That is the updates for the week, I hope you guys have a fantastic weekend and I will talk to you all on Monday with more blogs but till Monday enjoy your Labour Day Weekend!
