Knowing When To Say That's Enough....

               With all the change that is going on in my life currently I thought this was the best idea for a post and that is to say and know that is enough. I admit in the past I have not been able to let go and say OK, Chris that is enough with YouTube or a web series or in this example Everything About Reality TV which is ending in now less then a week from now and change will be huge for me especially. If you just feel fed up or tired of doing something that you have been doing for little over 4 years like me then that is usually the cue to say OK that's enough it is time to move on. I know change is extremely hard at times but change can also be a good thing for you honestly.  I have been getting so much better at change and you can too! It just takes a bit of time to adjust to the change and that is how it is going to be over the next few weeks after my podcast ends I will have to readjust. and it takes a bit of adjustment but you will get adjust in time. However there is a thin line when you have to say that is enough, time to move on and that's what I am doing. 

                I wouldn't say that my podcast was a fail it was very much successful and boy we have a ton of plans in the future. With me saying that's enough for Everything About Reality TV there is some major plans in the works for me and now that I am down to 1 podcast, the collaboration Podcast as of a week Sunday when the final episode of Everything About Reality TV goes up. When you say that is enough there is always open doors and yesterday it was opportunity banging the door down on me. As you finish one thing there is always new opportunities awaiting for you and that is what has happened in the last 12 - 13 hours for me and I am just so eager and excited to tell you guys what the big secret that I am hiding but that will not announced till Jan 1st, 2020 when the entire plan for CBOTW is released to you guys publicly. One last thing on this post today is You will know when it is time to say that's enough, you have to listen to what is inside your heart and it will guide you through. Sometimes you second guess yourself but in the end you will be guided the right direction. Hope this helps and I will talk to you guys in the next post tomorrow at 12 pm EST.

Podcast Intros & Recording The Podcast

                Today's post, we are back to the topic of podcasting as I took almost a week off from it to cover other topics within the last week. But alas we are back, or I am back talking about podcasting. I want to focus today basically on Intros and recording the actual podcast. Now the intro I use a royalty free intro that has my voice over. You can find some on Google and if you really want to pay for one then that is fine. Trust me a proper intro really does help you out and gains some listeners. Plus it tells your listeners what you are listening to actually so that is always a plus when it comes to the intros to your podcast or podcasts depending if you have two on the go and I have noticed some host two different podcasts weekly. However an proper intro is helpful to have especially if you guys like a sponsor that you need to promote as a thank-you to them for sponsoring you or even if you are promoting a product that a company that paid you to promote and yes that is still in the realm of sponsorship but it is a great way to get it out there to your fan base to check out and buy. Now if you do not have a sponsorship and you own a website like me, you can promote your website on the intro like you guys all know and hear each and every week or in this case twice a week as of right now as my schedule depends on how many episodes I cover per week! 

                  The next part of today's post I would like to talk about is the recording process of a podcast and I know this is a very detailed blog post and that is the point behind this post really. So recording wise this is the part of the preparation for the podcast is making sure the sound is perfect next the intro track and the voice track is set up as you will need to have two tracks or record then add the intro track on the post production but we will get into that Sunday's blog post. Sound quality is the upmost important if you are doing audio only and if you are on video as well then of course video quality is important. No you do not need a fancy green screen like I have behind me which hardly has been used since I got it but that is not the point. The point is the quality is the most important thing of all whether it is audio only and video quality is good. The final point I would like to make is have your notes ready to go as that is a huge part of the production side of things so you know what you are going to talk about in each and every episode of your podcast. Content is very important and to make sure it is entertaining content so this way listeners will come back each every episode that you produce and post up. Also being consistent with a recording schedule is also upmost important. I will cover the editing and uploading part which will be the second last thing in this series before we wrap all of this up and move on with new posts down the road as well.

Different Platforms You Can Put The Podcast On

              This is one of my favorite posts to make within this series. So today's post we are going to talk about different platforms that your podcast can be on. Let's start with the basic platform where the source of your podcast come from. Mixcloud, Anchor, Libsync and the one my podcast "Everything About Reality TV" is on are all a good site but I recommend Anchor, Libsync and As you know the history of my podcast where it began to where it is to this very day it has changed forever rapidly fast and cannot believe how fast my podcasts grows and the more platforms you get on the more you will be noticed. Now it doesn't happen overnight but as you keep on producing more episodes the more the platform is getting noticed and trust me it took me more then 1 year to start being noticed. By 2018 is when things got on a roll for me finally. Yes I am referring to me covering Music City and Celebrity Big Brother which really helped grow the podcast even more. 

               Now the platforms I grew on from the main platforms were TuneIn which is a huge directory and no wonder it's grown rapidly on there since late 2016 when I added it to their directory which honestly was excited. Next on my list I expanded to Player FM, Castbox, ListenNotes, PodParadise, Google Podcasts, and also ITunes which came later as I wasn't sure on there. The second platform my podcast was on was called Stitcher which is another great platform and see a great amount of listeners as I check it this morning and more listeners then I had when I first started out on that platform back in 2016 which was the second platform I expanded to. Now those are some of the platforms my podcast is on I cannot remember them all but 13 to be exact I am currently on at the moment. However it takes time and I recommend to not rush expanding too fast I highly do recommend to take things slow at the start then slowly expect. Like the saying goes you can't rush greatness. Now video platform wise, if you want to put your podcast on YouTube I do not recommend it but if you want to with the adpocalypse and being demonetized then I respect your decision but you guys know my thoughts about the platform already. Now Twitch you can do a Talk Shows and Podcaster category and can stream it under there. There is also other platforms you can stream on as well but it would be too long of a post to actually list them all out but worth to even Google it.

                There are some of the platforms you can do you're podcasts and I have made a couple of recommendations but definitely highly recommend, Stitcher, ITunes, Player FM,, but again but still Google it and research the platforms is probably the best way to do it and you will be definitely surprised the ones that you can put it on as I just added mine to a 14th platform that I found. See eventually you will end up where I am being over over a dozen of platforms which can be very overwhelming but totally rewarding especially in the end to watch your podcast grow over the years. Now like I said in yesterday's post, I am now taking a couple of days off from this topic and will return Tuesday back to normal to finish off this series then with other topics the rest of the week. Tomorrow I have a special post as I will be on location with my dad for a food review at an event along with the event itself too.

Equipment For Podcasts- What Do You Need?

            Welcome to Day 2 of this mini series of Podcasting Help or tutorials. I am excited to be back to do another one of these for you guys and was a great turn out on the post yesterday so it is totally worth to continue this series. I was thinking about doing it every second day but decided to go day to day. Anyways today I am talking about equipment. 

1) Video and Audio ONLY: If You want to go on the video side of things, the equipment you probably need is: If you do not have a mixer a headset does work but still it is worth to invest in one, even a handheld on a stand itself can be the cheaper route for you guys to take. Also if you are streaming it live on YouTube, Twitch or any video platform a webcam is a must. You have to get yourself a decent one as the cheap ones were not the greatest as I know from experience but I got some quality cameras here in the studio now. Also for recording using Audacity is a great program, but there is other programs out there like Adobe Audition, however you can just Google it and see what there is out there. Finally for this part of today's post is the software you use for streaming your podcast live. Now there is a few programs that are very popular these days. First is OBS which is an open broadcast software and it is free compare to the other two you do have to buy a pro to get more features to where OBS is totally free. The link for this software is which I am not paid to promote their software but highly recommend this! Next is X-Split which I used for many years but the only issue is for the free version of the software you have only 4 scenes and I think some features are locked unless you get pro which I do not know as I haven't used that program in a very long time as I am more a OBS user now these days when I do or did stream. Finally is Wirecast which does cost a bunch to get and I wouldn't recommend it whatsoever.

2) Audio ONLY: For Audio ONLY all you need is Audacity or any audio recording program which I spoke about above, microphone or microphones depending if there is one or two of you for the podcast which my studio is setup for 2 mics right now at the moment. I highly recommend to even get a 70 - 100 dollar hand held like I said above even a stand that you can adjust. That is actually how it all began for me then a goose neck and the rest is history but that is a great way to start then as you go on then you can upgrade to a condenser like I have and like I have told you guys I have the handheld which is now on the second boom behind the second screen which is rarely used minus when guests of a certain collaboration podcast is over here talking up snow on me at the wrong time... haha. Anyways start small scale then you can build it up eventually. 

              Anyways that is the post for this morning, tomorrow we get into the beauty of the podcasting world with the different platforms and it will definitely will be an interesting as my podcast is on way to many platforms and I will cover em and what to do. I am excited to get to this portion of the podcast especially. Fair warning after tomorrow's post I am taking a few days off to cover different topics on here so it will be changing but Tuesday we will be back on this topic after a small break.

Starting A Podcast, What You Need!

                This has been on the schedule, sorry the list for quite some time now and I want to talk about this to help you new podcasters out especially. I have been technically been podcasting almost 5 years now so now I wanna give back to you guys after the years I have been doing this. So today's topic out of several which mind you I do not know how many exactly, but it could be 3 - 5 at the most tops no more then that. If there is part of this I am missing please do feel free to contact me and I will cover it on the blog. Today's post is about starting a podcast which takes numerous steps to get done. 

1) Microphone/Web Cam- Microphone doesn't have to be as professional as mine Next up is a Web cam especially if you are on a video platform like Twitch or YouTube which I do not recommend YouTube as you know by the situation I went through with YouTube but a good web cam is recommended but I will get into that under equipment later.

2) Choice of Platform- There are so many different podcast platforms to where your RSS Feed comes from,, Mixer, Anchor which Punk Rock Cheeseburger Podcast uses and yes I gave Rocky a shoutout there! lol. There is other platforms you can put your podcasts on from submitting You're Podcast which will be in this blog series, but not sure. I want to do different platforms you're podcast can be on and think that will be tomorrow actually where I will cover that. 

3) Program- You will need a recording software to record which is key to recording and again that will be under equipment post later on when I actually do that nut it is key to recording a podcast even if you stay Audio ONLY like I have been doing for the past 2.5 years now soon to be 3 years. 

4) Subject/Theme/Topic- Finally you need a subject/theme or Topic. For example for me as you know, I talk Reality TV each and every week and also as you know occasionally the Power Rangers Podcast. That is kind of what I mean is to have an topic or subject and best to try staying on the same topic week but if you wanna just go off the cuff that is good too. 

                     There is what you need to start a podcast and I know it is quite a list and I cover most of what you need and I will talk about the equipment you need and that is actually tomorrow's blog post is about is the actual equipment part as I tried to be short on my points that I made as some of them I will be covering tomorrow. However it is upmost important to have these 4 items in order for a successful podcast and of course its common sense that you need these things honestly if you wanna succeed in the world of podcasting which has become a really big thing these days.

Promotion Is Key As a Content Creator!

             Not sure if I ever talked about this here on the blog but I am going to in case I didn't. Promotion is key especially when it comes to being a content creator. I have been told this back when I was still streaming and honestly I didn't have much in the way of social media when I was a regular broadcaster back in the day in 2011 which is a long time ago honestly. However it is very, very important to keep your fans up to date especially when it comes to technical issues which I experienced yesterday and the day before which seems to been ironed out. Anyways I let you guys know what was going on but mind you I didn't say anything Thursday as I was live somewhere and there was mic issues even then. However to always be in contact with you guys in the up most important thing for me so this way you guys know what the heck is going on with me especially and usually I am good at telling you guys these things and I do not hold back if something is on my mind especially tech issues is the biggest thing. Now moving on from tech issues to post up the podcast, I give as many links as I can. Normally 3 or 4 then where else you can find the podcast. Same with the blog I will post up the links everyday if the posts are everyday compare to me missing yesterdays but, yes but, I told you guys the truth why I wasn't going to post but what I should of done was told you guys in the morning but how the heck did I know that I was going to happen so that's way I made the late announcement as I got busy fixing the tech issues.

                 Now I even schedule the tweets out for promotion, from the blog post to the podcasts and it helps but other then that my tweets are genuinely me talking. Only things that are set to schedule is the blog posts and podcasts. The more you promote the better chance your podcast will be noticed and it took a long time over a year to start being noticed as a podcaster. I usually use these hashtags for my podcast #EverythingAboutRealityTV, #Podcast, #Podcasts, #Podcaster,#contentcreator, #blogger, #blog. I think you guys get the idea but hashtags helps a lot with content and helps you build your community and following and when I first started out as a podcaster and blogger full time I had very little so that is why I am saying hashtags really do help as a content creator in general, it helps you grow pretty quick. Another point when I first started I had about only 1200 and now over 3400 however lost a bunch thanks to the Twitter purge and hope to grow again and get to the 4k mark finally. My final advice just keep promoting, promoting and promoting, it will help you and if you need any help please do not hesitate to contact me via email here on the website, Twitter or Instagram and I will be more then happy to help you guys out. I am happy to help podcasters, bloggers, YouTubers out to grow their content, their channel.

I Have To Work On My Patience and Problem Solve Better

              There is a certain level I can tolerate with my patience level but if my patience is pushed then you will see a side of me that you do not want to say. Yes I am speaking about the future of Power Rangers Podcast, there will be 2 different press releases eventually and I am just not ready to announce it publicly as of yet. Yes my patience has been tested with the future of the Power Rangers Podcast however, things changed very, very quickly and again I am just eager to announce it eventually. However I still have to work on my patience but honestly I feel like it is getting better, however, some things I can and cannot tolerate and what I honestly think, there is a certain extent to where the patience will not be as patient if that makes any sense to you honestly. Let me put it this way, if it goes beyond my patience then there is nothing I can really do. There is hell to pay and that has been shown in the past from the Power Rangers Podcast to dealing with my phone company well that really pushed me over the edge and trust me you didn't wanna hear the language out of my mouth last night. I had quite the sailors mouth as the saying goes but there is a certain level, I need to watch my P's and Q's tho as that could and can get me and my mouth into trouble. Anyways I should of not lost my cool because I wasn't patient enough to fix the issue with charger which I have now replaced but one other unit the plug itself has to be replaced. I should of been a bit more patient and not take it out on them. Anyways moving forward I need to problem solve before going nuts on someone.

                 There is a bit more to work in the way of patience and also problem solving but I can be honest I have gotten indeed better at problem solving now but just gotta keep it up. I cannot back down on improving myself from here on out, just gotta keep working hard to better myself as a human being and I know it takes time and it cannot happen overnight technically but in time it will definitely happen. The problem solving I do find myself doing a lot more of and it is getting better but still needs some work. However my patience with the podcast has gotten better and gotten patient with the editing side of things but sometimes the technical side of things are not great from time to time but able to trouble shoot the problem.   Working hard to these goals and know if I keep my mind in the game, I can do it.

How Do You Trust Someone?

            Trust is hard sometimes, you think you can trust someone but they screw you over so many times, you have to start thinking are they truly your friend at this point? I have been thinking about this for quite sometime with friendships being tested and really makes me think, maybe it is time to move on? I am a very good and dedicated friend but sometimes I feel like I am always the one that calls or texts. Also the fact I haven't hung out with them since January/February really is making me think, maybe they are not truly my friend? Trust is really hard to come by with me and the reason is because of my past of having a team from 2005 - 2017 trust is hard to come by with me these days but if you can have my trust it is a good thing. I am very Leary of trusting people especially someone who keeps on messing up.  

            I can trust people but to a certain point where I have to put my foot down and make a decision if their really my friend or not and trust me the decision is no easy at times but I have to make the right one, not the wrong one. Sometimes the right choice is the right decision and you have to trust your gut instinct. There a few things you should do to trust someone. One is will they always be there for you? Will they wanna hangout with you? Spend time with you? I haven't felt that kind of vibe with one of my friends and unsure what my next move right now. I am kind of playing it by ear right now see what happens in the next 11 hours but I am NOT playing games especially this happening non stop with the bickering that is another piece of advice to not always give em chances after chances, because it will just become a problem and that is what I am going through at the moment and it sucks to go through trust issues with someone. Yes I may be stubborn as a mule from time to time but I am trying to make the right decisions these days not the wrong decisions.

               I hope this helps you guys with trying to trust someone or anyone in general, it isn't easy but you just have to go with your gut feelings and try and listen to what is in your mind and hope it is the right decision.  As an adult it is still difficult but yes I am in my early 30's but don't forget I have autism it can be quite harder to make the decision. However I am trying my best to make the right choices in my life. Anymore question please feel free to ask or send me an email

How I Work Hard To Be Successful!

              I know sometimes success can be taken away from you at times of stress and panic but to be successful, you gotta work hard and gotta grind and that is what I have been doing is grinding hard to get caught up in the content you guys either every day or every week, depending what content comes out and whether it is scheduled or not. But you have to work hard, grind, grind, grind, even with the going gets tough, just keep on going, do not stop or give up. Giving up is not a good thing, trust me, I ended up giving up and look at where that took me, so far behind on the podcast I kind of gave up and giving up is not a good idea, look at what happened, I ended trying to catch up this week towards the end of the week. With Finale week beginning less then 24 hours from now, I gotta make sure to post up the Big Brother Canada RECAP today at the most. 

              To gain a follower ship or a good fan base like I have, you have to work hard, gotta promote your content each and every time you post up content you have to do the PR work behind it. What I do is give a far warning like a 1 hour warning till the content comes out or the exact time it goes up. I also take advantage if I have to run out to do errands or have an appointment or in bed when content goes out late, I use the scheduling feature on Twitter and is the only time I will use the feature, 99.9% of the time I am posting up things live minus if I am in bed early or out on errands or at an appointment, I find it good tool to have especially if I am on a very busy day and I tend to forget to post up the content links, whoops! I was given advice from someone who told me PR is the most important thing when it comes down to promoting content.

               The final point I would like to make is try and make a schedule when your content comes out, so your fan base knows when the content is out on time and yes I realize I am off schedule myself but working hard to get it out on time on schedule. But scheduling is key, especially if you want to keep the fan base happy and not lose fans over content being up late.... Cough, cough I am a prime example but I am sure if your fans are understanding, I know you guys who read this blog and understand my recent circumstances. If you are going to be away like I was in April, you gotta get a make up schedule made or work around being away this way you do not miss the content going out and have it posted up the following week. Hope this advice helps you guys out and feel free to ask questions in the comments below, I will be sure to answer them and never know I may do a follow up. 

Have a great day!

Stress And How I Deal With It

               With all the mass chaos going on in the last month, the website going down for a long week and a half and the end of the summer season of Everything About Reality TV Podcast turned my world upside down with stress. So you probably wondering how do I deal with the stress of podcasts, blogs, trolls on social media? Well for the podcasts I have my schedule but as you know my life is busy and I go by a calendar and I find it quite helpful for recording. The recording can go off schedule at times due to very hectic schedule or personal life in the way or just spending time with the family but that's OK because I utilize and let you guys know if there is going to be a blog post missed or podcasts have to be re-scheduled for any reason out there.  

                  In the way of workload, well I write a list with the most important thing to do to the least, as you know I was behind podcasts at the end of the summer season and plus the website completely down due to technical issues with the website that became the very last and least priority on my list as I needed to catch up on podcasts first before the website came up on that priority list. The fact to get caught up on podcasts and get content out to you guys in the way of podcasts and plus the podcasts are on a schedule meanwhile the website is not on a schedule and I gave the links for the blogspot page and the podcasts links so it made it easier while the website was down so it was easy to temporarily re route everyone to the other links while I did the necessary repairs to the website.So you can see I thought things over before deciding how things will go for re-routing everyone to other links for the time being and those other links are always there and public even outside 

                   Now stress doesn't seem to be a problem anymore and I am getting better each and everyday with dealing with stress as I now have the tools on how to deal with problems and deal with the overload of work when I end up adding up the amount of work on a daily basis but my motto is I go with the most important and needs to be done first then work on the next important and so forth. That is how I deal with stress on a regular basis and I hope you enjoyed this post and I hope to catch you on my next post!

Depression: How I Deal With It On A Regular Basis!

              I have had a rough go in the last year with staff betraying me and turning their backs on me and the change from YouTube to Podcasting field and I have had my share of depression and dealing with it quite often enough when stressed or this heat is driving me nuts, I tend to get down and depressed. 

                A few ways I deal with the depression are watching funny TV Shows such as Home Improvement, The Three Stooges, which I gotta say The Three Stooges will really lift my mood up and some of the days it doesn't help and that's OK, I just try to take it easy if that is the case I just try to deal with the situation to the best of my ability and try to keep a positive mind and some days when I am not having it and just don't wanna do crap for all, I just decide to play video games for a while or for the remainder of the night and get back to my task at hand in the morning when my mind is fresh and good to go.  That is the strategy when I am down and depressed on those particular days. I don't give up but sometimes walking away and leaving it be till the next day. Just yesterday if I remember I got back into catching up with Big Brother 19 Which I was behind 5 episodes from the past week and Amazing Race Canada 5 which I am not sure what in the world got me motivated, yes I have been down and depressed the last few days and I guess that motivation and drive came out of me wanting to get back to and catching up on the podcasts and now I am doing a blog post to catch up on these too! I guess when I get depressed, the drive and passion was there in my head, wanting to catch up with things try to continue on with Chris B On The Web. 

                    As long as I got that passion and drive to continue on with Chris B On The Web which is probably a good thing. These days I try to forget I am depressed and try and live my daily life to the fullest, it may not be easy but I try to make the best out of it everyday to the best of my ability and not worry about what makes me down and depressed, sometimes it catches up to me someday's I am so distracted, I am just purely just focused on the task at hand and it sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't. It truly depends what mood I am in, some days I dont wanna have it with any of my website and not do anything, some days like the last day or so, I wanna catch up like this week, which is good there is motivation still there for me.

Have a great night!

How I Motivate Myself To Continue To Do Well What I Love To Do!

           Between recording Everything About Reality TV and blogging and fixing the website from the bad timing of a website going down, yes you can tell I have been a bit off in the last almost 24 hours with the site going down. Every month as it is seems to have its oddball issues I get stressed which means I am up to wee bits of the morning stressing over it. Plus catching up on Everything About Reality TV even though 2 days a week isn't overly a hard schedule. How do I motivate myself to get myself back on track under so much immense pressure of trying to keep up with the podcast. Well, I come down with a plan to catch up on a day I have nothing planned and make a precise schedule how I am going to do this catch up whether I have to catch up on Big Brother 19 or podcasts that I am behind. It can be not just the podcasts, it can be the FACT you haven't blogged in what 5 days, yes I am referring to me not posting up on this blog but I'm getting much better at posting up these days! 

                Anyways pick a day that is close to the day you are suppose to bring out the content that you were suppose to have out, let's go right into an example: I had a podcast, no podcast in particular but let's say it is out on a Friday (Yesterday) for an example, and you got time today (Saturday) then that would be the more suitable time to post up the podcast, YouTube video, or blog post or whatever content you create, it is essential to make up the time you have lost and catch up. Do not get over stressed about it, just try and fix the situation and get caught up on things so this way you do not fall behind really bad, trust me I have been there so many times and especially that I will be doing another podcast so I have to keep up to speed on things. I know how to persevere through the struggles and get caught up and it is the best fans in the world that keeps me motivated and going and I get so much love and support, not only that but I also get so much encouragement to keep on going that is what is keeping me on going with the podcasts, the blog & also I am very gracious to have such a great fan base and able to share my experiences, thoughts and opinions with you guys on almost a daily basis. You know I wanna try to blog on a almost daily basis not a week apart from each other. My final bit of advice in today's blog post is to not do not give up on your dream, your passion keep doing what you love to do even if you fall behind on posting up on your website or YouTube or on your blog, just keep on working hard and eventually you will end up caught up or back on the right track or back on schedule. 

Have a Great Sunday!

Walking Away From An Argument

         Almost a week ago I did the unthinkable, something I have rarely done over in a very, very long time and that is walk away from an petty argument that was over the patio stone project. Now it isn't the first argument I have had over the patio project, but I consider it creative differences but that's OK, we all have our own opinions on things and we are entitled to have our own opinions. But I felt so frustrated with the arguing that was going on, I just needed to get away for 15 - 20 minutes or as long as I need and I felt walking away going inside in this instance was what was best for me at the time and I need to cool off and calm the heck down before I say something I regret. Same with July 1st I got pissed off at my brother and my dad when I said I was going to cook yet they took it over and not tell me they already have started and I said something I should of not said. However I came down to my room and laid down for a minute to cool down then went to continuing playing Rocket League with my niece and nephew and moved on with the rest of the day and everything was fine for the remainder of the evening.

        So you can see there if you cannot come to consensus and not agree on anything or someone is continuing to argue then it is the best idea to walk away from the situation and just cool off for a few minutes and if you need extra time do take the extra time to cool down then if you are clearly ready to go back and try talk things out or go back to the task at hand that you were doing at the time of the conflict/argument occurred. But sometimes it is OK to stop for the day and maybe start tomorrow or if it is the weekend as you guys know I do not work on the patio on the weekend not even a Saturday or on a Sunday, it is usually during the weekdays when there is working being done on the patio. 

       However in conclusion walking away is the best thing to do and staying in the same room or in my instance go inside from the patio or wherever you are it is the best thing to do and arguing is just not worth it. Walk away and cool down before you regret saying something that you do not want to say and will have major regrets in the end and if you say something to friends, then you will lose a friend or friends in the process and you don't want that to happen. 

Have a Great Sunday!
