Busy Editing Podcasts and updates!

             With all the episodes recorded, we are busy editing things getting all the episodes out. As for the missing clips I am going to forgo those for the week and will start back with shorts on Monday and will make sure it goes out to you guys and I apologize for lack of content. We've been swamped with things but now that things have settled down, I can start catching up with those. I feel bad enough missing the Wednesday episode which I will be making up next Wednesday at 3 pm EST. Next week the schedule will be jammed packed with episodes but I promise it will be entertaining. Once I finishing editing by the end of this weekend, I will be working on all the interviews that I have coming up. Anyways that is the post for today, I will as always talk to you all on Monday, have a great weekend!

Everything Has Gotten Crazy for us.

           So much is happening at once and got some many things to still get done:

- Work on recording the bonus episode of the podcast

- Finishing up interviews prep for the podcast

- Edit the entire 3 podcasts Larry and I recorded  

- Work on future episodes of Entertainment Man Podcast   

- Edit the bonus episode for next week

             So there is a ton of stuff that I need to finish so I am not sure if I will be able to get streams in this weekend but certainly will try my best to get those in too. One step at a time though that's all I can do really anyways that is the post for today as always I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Podcast Updates-- Entertainment Man & The CBOTW Show

             Now that the schedule has been released I want to talk more what you can expect with this schedule and how much more freedom both podcasts have together. Meaning I could potentially start doing interviews live more often and the opportunity for growth of Entertainment Man Podcast. I've been thinking about this recently and these plans make total sense to me now. I was regretting the decision but now that I think about it all, it totally makes a ton of sense. 

            With The CBOTW Show, I am planning to post to Audio ONLY for the foreseeable future but I am planning to expand to YouTube eventually, not right at this present but down the road in the very nearby future. I want to take baby steps with all these changes and I do not want to expand too fast and I think that is the biggest problem we have had in the past was rushing into things too fast. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Internet Issues Means Very Late Post!

             Our internet provider went down once again for hours on end. So any work didn't recommence till after my dentist appointment this morning so I apologize for the inconvenience for lateness and that is unacceptable in but what can you do, this stuff happens and it's beyond our control, really is. This why pre-writing blogs is important and trust me I am writing one for tomorrow and the next couple of days this way there is one that does go out everyday at this point. 

            Sometimes you go through something and it is beyond control and maybe this is a topic I should really talk about on a podcast, more at length. Another example is not working and it was their end that went down and normally they ARE SOLID but we've experienced a few hiccups recently but it is what it is. Anyways tomorrow I will be back on schedule with a new post and it's an update on the podcasts moving forward but for now I am deeply sorry for no blog post today and will be back on schedule tomorrow!

End of The Week Updates [05-25-2024]

                There is really big updates as Chris has been trying his hardest to get episodes done and I am sorry we've ghosted you in updates today but Chris has even mentioned he has recorded the episode for tomorrow and all it needs is editing now. He will have that done tonight. Also when he gets back he will be getting back into finishing up Wednesday episode to writing out notes and getting it recorded and edited. Also next week he's mentioned a recording sessions with Larry but not sure what it is technically. 

              I know Chris will have a ton of episodes coming up for interviews and you never know if they will be LIVE but excited for them all. He's hinted two are on the docket are to be live on the air one next week and the other few weeks later with Shane but either way excited to listen to both of the podcasts coming up. Chris will be appearing on several podcasts as a guest and excited to hear them. That is the updates, I will talk to you all next Saturday.

Learning to Take Small Steps!

              In the last 2 months, I have learned to take smaller steps. As you know by now with all these changes I have learned a lot about myself and what I have learned is to take smaller steps. The CBOTW Show on YouTube too soon that was a big wake up call for me knowing that it was way too soon to go to YouTube for that podcast so we are waiting till January 2026. Also I have learned with the smaller steps to check to make sure it works meaning the episode is completely playable which I have done since the issues occurred. 

             So smaller steps means taking it one thing at a time. I am continuing to focus on The CBOTW Show on Audio ONLY for the next year before making the jump to Video (YouTube) Also getting use to the weekly schedule with both podcasts on Sundays for Entertainment Man and Wednesdays for The CBOTW Show. It will take some time for us to get readjusted to a schedule that will soon make a lot more sense and less confusion. Anyways that is today's post and as always I will talk to you all Monday!

Made Changes (Full Explanation)

              The website was in dire need of updates once again as it was becoming a bit of a thorn in my side. Content Schedule got an overhaul, Videos page got an overhaul, I even updated Entertainment Man Podcast which wasn't updated as I was out of the province on holidays. The CBOTW Show decision on YouTube has been decided to be put on hold and we are focusing on Audio ONLY for The CBOTW Show. Basically I am focusing on the Twitch, Main YouTube account and Entertainment Man.

             Taking smaller steps when it comes to ALL our Shows. First step is in 2025 with the new podcasting, blogs and streaming schedules moving forward and both podcasts on a weekly schedule each which makes things so much easier to deal with. I wish I did this sooner and I will talk about that more on tomorrow's post as a continuation of what of talking about taking smaller steps but this is just the start of some major changes to our schedules and that it will make complete sense now compare what we have right now. Anyways I will talk to you all tomorrow for another blog post.

Food In Quebec City

              The food in Quebec was amazing! I really went French dishes as I wanted to try them and was worth it. I want to talk about 3 - 4 dishes in total. The First one was Cannelloni. I have never had this dish before but was really, really delicious. Restaurant Parmesan did a great job with our meals and I couldn't believe how much cheese was on it plus parmesan they added to it. Was crazy but was worth it though. The Next dish is from the French Canadian restaurant I had a Beef Wellington which was absolutely amazing. I even ate some Zucchini and it was amazing. Didn't eat all of the veggies as I'm not a fan of Asparagus. 

              I had a very nice French Toast  with apples cut thinly and also a nice caramel sauce and a bit of it was foamed up which was really good. However I couldn't finish it whatsoever there was a bit left as it was stacked two or three pieces of bread hence why I stayed at 226 pounds. However I am working on it now to get it down a lot more. This is the time I want to really push it, exercise more and what not. Anyways the last thing I want to talk about food wise is the Smoked Meat sandwich and Creme Brule. The sandwich was delicious and good. Shoestring fries were great too, I enjoyed it as well. The Creme Brule was awesome just as I remember it last year and has become a yearly tradition for me. Anyways that is the post for today, I hope you guys enjoyed this post and I will talk to you all tomorrow.

My Vacation 2024!

             As you know I was away on holidays to Quebec. I learned a lot about my family and got to see where my mom and her side of the family lived which was really neat to hear the history of my family. We also visited where my grandma is buried at the cemetery twice so it was nice to visit as I miss her every single day since she passed. Also got to ride the ferry there and back twice which was nice and I took some pics and can be found on my Instagram as I didn't post everything as there is way too many pictures. 

I also got to eat some of the most amazing food ever and I will talk about that on another blog tomorrow. Anyways we went shopping a bit and got myself a Nordiques hat, 2 pens including one for Larry as I thought about him while on the trip. Also got to go to church in a beautiful parish there I was completely in awe. We also got to go look at the Coliseum where the Nordics played originally and the Video Tron Centre where the Nordics could play if they became an expansion team again or a team moves to Quebec from other cities. Anyways that is my trip and I will talk to you guys tomorrow to talk about a few of the meals I really enjoyed, I'll leave out the negative experiences though. Talk to you all tomorrow.

Quick updates on Victoria Day

                      Hello everyone, Chris is taking one last day off before he gets back into work and I believe late in the afternoon today he will be doing a gaming stream probably around 4 pm till 7 pm EST. He will be spending time with the family  but he will pop up around then and look forward to watching his streams today. 

              We feel bad that we didn't do a lot of updates but the one good thing is Chris announced the renewal of both podcasts for 2025 which is fantastic to hear he's bringing em all back for next year. A lot surprising announcements that has been given out while away is astonishing! It was so obvious with his schedule changes for 2025 both podcasts were coming back for a respected 6th & 3rd season of the podcast and excited with what he's planning to bring to the podcasts. I know Larry is moving what the team and I have talked about, especially Chris who has actually started to prepare for podcasts online in 2025 as Larry is moving north. Chris mentioned to me to actually he will be recording Sunday's & Wednesday's episodes mid week and excited to what he has planned out.  Anyways that is where we are at, I will be back Saturday for an end of the week updates on the normal day and time.

Web Series or Podcasting?

            Web series or Podcasting? Which one do I prefer. As you guys may know my history with the web series that I use to do from 2005 till 2015 a good 10 years with doing series then from 2014 to the present day, which almost at 10 years for me as a podcaster as I started to dabble in the world of podcasting with one other person back then. You guys know I loved doing the series but we kind of ran aground and ran out of ideas for the series so that is one of the reason. 

            But Podcasting I love, I love being my authentic self and talk about TV shows and movies so I really am loving what we're doing now with the podcasts right now and no regrets whatsoever switching to podcasts. Larry, Kelsie and myself seem to really enjoy what we are doing right now. So in a short answer, I definitely say podcasting is more my thing and more in my wheelhouse of expertise as I've done internet and campus radio in the past. I hope you guys enjoyed reading today's blog and enjoy the rest of your weekend and I will talk to you all on Monday as I will be home from my trip by then.

Goals For ChrisBOnTheWeb Media?

             Since we are halfway through the year, some of our goals weren't reachable like the YouTube Channel for The CBOTW Show but there are goals I'd like to share with you guys professionally:

ChrisBOnTheWeb Media: I'd love to reach 1 million views on and we're closing in to 700K at this moment and it may take a few more years but that is totally OK with that and we continue to grow and learn each and every day we continue this journey together. 

            Also I would love to see 20 years and even a 25th anniversary for ChrisBOnTheWeb but baby steps as we are only on our 10th anniversary at the moment and we will get there eventually but again it is a long way off from our 20th and 25th anniversary and we will get there some day, just gotta keep truckin'. 

Entertainment Man Podcast: Now Entertainment Man, I can say I want to reach 300 episodes with eventually hitting the 500th episode down the road. Also I would love to hit 500 subscribers which is a very high goal and that will happen eventually. Small goals to start obviously.

The CBOTW Show: With The CBOTW Show of YouTube now my only goal is the 100th episode of the podcast and getting up there in episodes and probably get close to 50 by this year. 

            Anyways that is my post for today, it is nice to redefine my goals and as you noticed, I didn't give us any timeline, when it happens it happens right. Just keep producing the content out there but I will talk to you all tomorroW.

What's Going on With The CBOTW Show?

             I know YouTube has become a stressful platform. I thought all our episodes The  CBOTW Show was going to work but the premiere cut out after 10 - 20 mins into  the premiere which got me very, very upset and more agitated with the platform but playing it back didn't work. I think having 3 channels is a little much right now. So The CBOTW Show is staying Audio ONLY for now and maybe 3 channels was not the right move for us perhaps plus Twitch. 

             So maybe I need to focus on the 2 channels and shrink things down ChrisBOnTheWeb Media channel and Entertainment Man Podcast. Maybe one day we will go back to video for The CBOTW Show but who knows. We are taking a step back for now and focusing on the Audio ONLY for The CBOTW Show while Entertainment Man Podcast is on YouTube and with me streaming on weekends for you guys those will be my 2 primary focus. Anyways that is the blog post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow!

Feeling Nervous About The Schedule Changes...

               I feel very nervous when it comes to these changes that I am making to the podcasts and I know I asked you guys first if you were OK with these changes and most of you said yes so that means you guys were ok with the changes that were being made. I even reached out on all the platforms if this was ok with you guys and you guys said that is fine. So I do not know why I am feeling these nerves 

            And I know it will be a big success going with weekly shows. It'll take you guys some time to get use to the new schedule and how it works but this way we can produce both shows and air both shows during the week which is the reason behind the changes that we made. Trust me there is a reason for all these changes and it is so we can produce and post up both on a weekly basis. So in conclusion there should be no reason honestly to be nervous I am sure you guys will receive these changes with a positive feedback and you guys have asked The CBOTW Show isn't weekly and something I will get into on tomorrow's Podcast but I will talk to you then.

Finding Brotato Video Game Tough!

               I know I've done a review but after playing it for a while, it's not as easy as I think it is. I find myself stuck in the corner of the room with these things or creatures come at me and fast and the further you go the harder it is to actually beat and I do not know how many heats there is in this game but it seems like an endless amount of heats right now but the furthest I've gone is 13 heats that is where I ended the run by dying. But that is a great start for me in the game. 

              I have to just keep working at it and eventually I can beat this but I have actually unlocked some of the other characters with this game so that is most definitely good but slowly but surely. I need to get to play it on stream soon enough. I haven't had the time to do that as I have been fooling around with a house remodel on House Flipper 2. However I do find it tougher and a bit more complicated but I enjoy the game and reminds me a bit like The Binding of Isaac games. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow!

What is going to happen when I'm away?

            As you know I will be away from May 15th - 19th, 2024 this week starting Wednesday. So what I am planning to do is get all the blogs for the week written between those days minus Sunday is a day of rest for all of us and we are committed to taking at least one day off during the week. So mainly it will be all topic blogs from today right through to Saturday, 

            What about the end of the week updates? With me only in the studio the last two days, there is not enough updates for Kelsie to give so she gets the week off and she will be returning the following week. Also she will be solely in charge of ChrisBOnTheWeb Media while I am out in Quebec for 5 days. Any emails, messages will be answered by her as I will not be available Anyways that is the plan for this week, I hope you enjoy tomorrow's and the rest of the week's blog and I will talk to you on the next one tomorrow!

End of The Week Updates [05-11-2024]

                This is my final end of the week updates for 2 weeks as Chris has given me next week off from the blog and plus there will not be a lot of updates to be given that week as he's away half of the week and I wish him a safe travel and to have a good time. So to the updates, Chris has finished up all the recordings and finishing up editing the podcast editing for the next 2 weeks till he's back and ready to get back into recording new episodes. He isn't booking any new interviews right now till he gets back and settled back in and sounds like start of June for him to start back up with interviews again.

                The Discord server continues to flourish and grow and is always busy and active especially with my best friend, Brooke as an intern with ChrisBOnTheWeb Media who's help Chris, Larry and I run the server. Also the Facebook Group has returned and is active as well as ever can be which is great to see. Chris will be back in about 2 weeks from today for streaming and excited to catch back up with you all with the streams again on weekends. Finally, he plans on working on The CBOTW Show for future episodes before he leaves for Quebec on Wednesday this upcoming week and going to see how much he can get done. So there are the updates for the week, I will be monitoring the socials, email and Discord as always if you have any questions as Chris will be away, he's left me in charge and I will speak to you all 2 weeks from now.

Doors Open Ontario- Former Genosha Hotel

        The final event as you probably realize that my dad and I did 3 Doors Open Ontario locations in a day. This one really struck me interested as Genosha Hotel which is now called 70 King was a hotel originally, built in the 1920's, and opened in 1929 if I remember correctly. It was shut down in the late early 2000's and sat almost 2 decades empty and in dire need of a restoration.   

Then it finally reopened in 2019 as Luxury rental apartments which was the reason for the visit, I wanted to see what it looked like and I was immediately wowed with the beautiful marble floors in the lobby. They have a Church's Chicken which is from down in Texas and also there is going to be a lot of chefs they hand picked, Polish food there will be one that is a bit of two different, homemade tacos and many more. I am very, very impressed how the building looks like now. It still has it's original brick on the outside with modern windows and the model apartment was awesome! Very modern and the bathroom was huge! I really love the modern take on the building. I am glad I picked this one to see what it looks like. Anyways that wraps up for our 4 events we went to and as always I will talk to you all tomorrow.

Doors Open Ontario- Charles Street Building & Maple Fest


           Now the Charles Street Building was a printing press company back in the 30's, 40's and I'm sure the 50's, now one of the campuses here for Ontario Tech University home to the Ridgebacks which I have seen a game in person and was awesome. There is a lot of original wood beams there and they really made it modern. They even had a giant size camera that they used back then with the accordion which was really cool and gives you the vibes of the 1920's and 1930's back then. Was cool to see that campus building as the city is very much a University city now. Glad they used this building for education as the building has a lot of history behind it. 

              Now my dad and I switched over to the Maple Fest which we picked up my mom and went to the Maple Festival one town over. We saw the usual and one thing that stood out was them making Maple Suckers on ice and I have one that is package but next year I'd like to get one that is being made. A lot of great venders and a very busy event and so glad to see it hustling and bustling. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow!

Doors Open Ontario- Local Shipping

            First of all apologies for a very late blog today, overslept and got busy with other things but tomorrow I will be sure to be more on time tomorrow for sure. Anyways Doors Open Ontario, locally for us, I got to walk on the shipping area which is normally restricted but this was a special moment for me. I really enjoyed learning what each and every building houses in the way of items they deliver and go out. I never know Steel came from across seas and one of those is Jordan which is pretty far from here which is amazing and I never knew this till Saturday back on the weekend.

            Also the plans they have to expand the harbor out to allow more ships in and the reason why there isn't a marina is because of the ships could collide with the bigger ships which wouldn't be good. So now I know the reason and I don't need to fight city hall over this no more but I agree it is more of a shipping city along with a University and College city as well. Either way I learned a lot what goes on with the shipping, very educational today. But that is the post for today, I will talk to you tomorrow for the next location I was at for Door's Open.

End of The Week Updates [04-04-2024]

                    Here are your updates for the end of the week on May 4th, 2024 and oh Happy Star Wars Day, May the 4th be with you all. Chris has been extremely busy all week long from recording Entertainment Man Podcast which he has finished those up for this weekend and the weekend he is back from Quebec as he's started to go into holiday mode soon. He has finished up any blogs for the week he's away so this way he doesn't have to worry about it during the time he's away on holidays.  He is finally on The CBOTW Show this weekend working away on The Simpsons episodes he been wanting to work on for a while. Probably take him about half a week to finish those. 

                   I know our Discord Server was taken down then brought back and doing a ton better. Chris has improved it and really gave it a sleek look with the layout of the channels. He finally finished up the server and fully functional and operational at the moment. Chris has also brought back the old group page as well for Behind The Scenes looks and discussions. Already 20 something members strong on there as well. Both buttons have been added to this website the first FB logo is the fan page and the second is the group. Also the Discord is at the far right of all the logos. Those are my updates, a lot that has gone on this week and I will talk to you all next week, have a good weekend.

Got My Schedule for Tomorrow!

                As you guys know, I have 2 events back to back to go to this weekend (tomorrow) and I finally have a schedule laid out for the day and there will be a stream and I will mention it in my list but we'll see how things go for the stream to happen. 

10 am EST- Shipping Docks Tour as part of Doors Open Ontario

1130 am EST- Bowmanville Maple Festival

6 pm EST- Just Chatting Stream, as long as another channel that I sub to isn't going live, I will be going live on Twitch/Facebook. 

               There is the schedule, a full day of activities and I wouldn't be surprised if I pass out after the stream as I will be a very tired guy by the end of the stream. I know it will happen. Either way I am excited for the start of events and a very long and fun events season after going dormant for the winter and I am ready to kick it into high gear and doing these awesome events again. Anyways that is the post for today, have a great weekend as Kelsie will be doing the end of the week updates and I will talk to you all on Monday!

Let's Talk The CBOTW Show!

              The CBOTW Show has had rough waters lately. We tried to go to YouTube and it failed miserably. We tried to upload and the video froze and the premiere just unexpectedly ended on us. So I have no clue how to fix it and I think we made a mistake going to YouTube right away. We should of actually waited to go on the platform for this podcast. However nothing we can do now. I'm not sure what happened to the podcast why the video didn't play but the video was corrupted apparently so I have no clue what went on with that.

              The Podcast is to return in January 2025 on YouTube and hopefully we know exactly what we are doing and that we can actually have 0 problems with the podcast moving forward. With this podcast we are still learning with this podcast. However when we return to The CBOTW Show, we will be on a weekly schedule and things will be on a more smoother run then it has been. Just a little patience, we made the wrong call on The CBOTW Show a little too soon. We should of been more patient but not only that but we jumped too soon on going to YouTube for that podcast. However we will be back in 2025 on video but for right now we are sticking to Audio for this podcast for now. Anyways that is the post for today, I will talk to you all tomorrow for another blog post.

Starting to figure out what works

            I am finally figuring out things with what works for us and what isn't working. I know things have been a bit hectic for us lately but we are finally realizing what is working and isn't working. I know Discord went away for several days then it came back but it is permanently here to stay. As well as we have brought back the Facebook Group that is actually public to everyone and is the behind the scenes look at ChrisBOnTheWeb Media and early discussions that go on before it is made public on the other social medias. 

          I definitely we are going into the right direction and we continue to grow and learn what works for us. I know things haven't been the best for the second podcast but will talk about that tomorrow for a blog post. We have to take things one thing at a time and one day at a time. It will all come together eventually but one thing at a time is the way to go. Anyways that is the post for today and I will talk to you all tomorrow.
