Hello friends, fans, and family,
I hope that you are having an awesome day. My blogs writings are laid back and relaxed. I thank you for constantly reading and supporting my writings. Today I am going to talk about Agents of Shield and where do you think they are going to take the show from here? I am going to give you my opinions and you tell me what you think about it.
Okay so the team made it back to their time but still in the light house. The agents are now enemy of the State and they are wanted. They seek out a possible problem only to be ambushed or set up. But it did work to get them all in a position that they had to fight their way out and Yo-yo lost her arms as in the future. It seems as if it is happening as the future Yo-yo said that it would.
Enoch replacement ended up dying trying to save the team. I wonder if Enoch's people are going to send more watchers to Earth after losing two of their watchers. I don't think that they are, but they might. I am also interested to know what that Air Force General and her daughter has in store for our heroes. We know that the daughter has some sort of fetish with Quake. This is just going to get ugly before it gets better. Here are some questions, and they stop the world ending event and does Phil Coulson really have to die to save the team? The future Yo-Yo said that every time that they tried to save Phil the whole team and the Earth died. So, does he really have to die to save the team and the Earth and if so how does the show itself goes on? Who is going to carry the team if Coulson dies? Or is the show going to end with Coulson's death? I don't think that they are going to bring Phil back into the movie version of the Marvel. What do you think? I think that they are wrapping up the show, possibly. However, if they kill off Phil Coulson and continue the show who is going to take over as team leader? Phil has always been the team leader and a really good team leader at that, in my opinion.
How is the team going to avoid the world ending events that cause the destruction of Earth? Is just allowing Phil Coulson to die going to save the planet or are there other things that needs to happen in order to make the world ending event never happen? I think that it is going to be more than Phil dying to stop the work ending event. I am not sure what else is going to happen, but it may constitute the ending of Agents of Shield all together. Remember that Shield was dismantled in the movies because of the infiltration of Hydra. So, there is no Shield in the movie verse any more. Not that it can't be reestablished, but I don't think that it is going be done no time soon. They may revisit that idea later after Infinity Wars movie series and after Captain America movie(s) as well.
I am going to close with, the possibility of seeing comic book movies was always a joke because of the lack of commitment by the cast and crew as well as the lack of special effects. Even if a producer was able to get a good cast and crew together for a super hero movie the special effects was extremely lacking. Although, they were incredible efforts in TV land to do all types of super hero shows and for the most part this actor/nerd enjoyed every moment and effort. However, we now have the special effects and cast and crew to make outstanding movies and TV shows. Even though TV shows has always been good to me and even better than most movies until recently starting in the late 90's and it has just gotten better. Movies are expected to be good now as well which was not always the case. Thank you for reading and have a wonderful and blessed day.
Hello friends, fans, and family,
I know what you're thinking. You are wondering if Black Lighting is even worth watching? Well, that was my question s well. Honestly, I believe that it is because of everything that is going on in the series. Besides Jennifer still have not gotten her powers yet, haha. He is my thoughts on her and her now ex-boyfriend. Khalil is being pulled into the dark side. Unfortunately it is easy for Tobias to manipulate Khalil especially because of his injury, and Khalil depressed state. A plus for the evil team is Tobias is wealthy. I think that he is eventually going to have a run in with Thunder/Anissa or Jennifer as Lighting. I think that it would be better and more interesting.
However, him facing Black Lighting is more practical but I would like for him Khalil to face off against Black Lighting but during that fight Lighting AKA Jennifer steps in, in some way. If it is to save him or better yet save Black Lighting and saves the day. The fight between Thunder and Black Lighting was awesome and fast. I enjoyed every moment of the fight. I like the idea him allowing his daughter Thunder to know who he is. This is going to lead into a serious father and daughter talk. But the question is, is he going to allow his daughter Jennifer, Lighting to know who he is as well and if he do will she be able to keep it a secret?
When I think about it I understand how hard it is to be a super hero when the one the he is suppose to bring to justice is the same one who killed his father. Losing a loved one is hard and to compound that with with super powers and the one who is supposed to be brought to justice is the same one who killed the person whom he loved. This is a really big test for him. Doing the right thing or getting revenge. The other question is what happened to the doctor who called Black Lighting on Tabias? Is he still a live did Tabias realized that the doctor set him up? Is the doctor and his family okay? We may never know these answers but I guess in the big picture it is not important. However, I still wonder. What I believe what really changed his mind is him hearing his ex-wife in trouble.
So, there is a lot of things going on that can have many different outcomes. Learning that Peter knows Lady Eve and that he made a deal with her makes since out of a lot of his decisions. He still managed to keep his cool while talking to her all the while letting her know that he would be willing to kill to keep the Pierce family safe. I am interested to know if the Pierce family finds out about his deal with her how would they react to this information? Okay, so, that is it for now. Comment, like, share, subscribe. Thank you for your support. You are awesome.
I am going to close with, staying motivated is hard especially when time sets in and the thrill and moment of making that decision has long since gone and all that is left is doing it. No matter whether it is fitness goals, starting your own business, going back to school and/or working on your promotion things are going to get hard at many points in your endeavor to achieve said goals. Remember that you can do it and that you may need to make some adjustments along the way. Even if you end up making a lot of adjustments to keep on track don't lose hope. How the saying go? Ah, life is going to punch you in the mouth, your why must harder than that punch. You must get back up and get back into the fight don't allow life to defeat you. You can do it. Don't ever give up. Never give up.
Hello friends, fans and family,
I hope that your day is going well. Today we are going to talk about Van Helsing, now, you may remember Van Helsing from the movie rendition but this is the TV show a Syfy network original. I took the day to review and catch up and also learn more about the TV rendition of the film. It is not like the movie and it did not have the same atmosphere of the movie. So, if you're expecting it to be exactly like or even similar to the movie then you will be disappointed. However, that does not mean that the series is not good. They set it in a post apostolic word infested by Vampires. It reminds me of the walking dead but with Vampires. Even though that could be beating a dead horse type of a thing I believe that they done a very good job. So, yes it is worth your time and yes it is worth watching.
"Vanessa Van Helsing is humanity's last hope, as her unique blood composition gives her the ability to turn vampires human. With this secret weapon, Vanessa becomes a prime target for the vampires. Van Helsing comes from the producers of Fargo and Hell on Wheels. Acclaimed director/playwright Neil LaBute serves as showrunner."
I personally enjoyed the series because of all of the extra stories that they added into it. It keeps you entertained and it gives some mysteries which keep you on the edge of your seat. It is a network film so I think that, that plays a part in what they can do with special effects. I don't see this Van Helsing TV series being as popular as the Walking Dead but I think that it will have its place in television history. The executive of the Syfy network get much respect from me for daring to even try something like this. However, Syfy in my opinion has been the first to pioneer movie like this and of this caliber. Being willing to cast new and up and coming actors and actresses is brave by itself and then to do a spin off series based on a movie is awesomely outstanding.
This movie has a lot of great actors, actresses and a great director. I hope that Syfy continue to do TV shows like this and continue to give new and up and coming actors and actresses a chance for success in this industry. Syfy was one of the first networks to do this and this includes new writers and directors. Van Helsing get a thumbs up from me because of its daringness and willingness to push the proverbial envelope.
I am going to close with, tv shows are a fragile thing depending heavily on the audience, ratings, and watch hours for streams. This is the same for all of the entertainment industry as far as what the audience say about the network and production shows. I like the fact that they give the new folks a chance to gain traction in this industry. They do this while maintaining there presence through the shows headliners and superstars. Yes, it is a lot of work yes it is very difficult and yes many have tried and failed in this entertainment industry but no, it is not impossible for you, for them, for us to do it. But it does take a lot of effort and a lot if time and dedication. You can do it. Don't give up. Never give up.
Hello friends, fans, and family,
thank you to all of IME Blog supporters. You are awesome! Incase you don't know February 20, 2018 YouTube is requiring channels to have 4000 hours of watch time in the last year and at least 1000 subscribers. Here are some YouTube videos talking about it. Most YouTubers think that it is a good change and some others are scared because they don't quite meet the requirements. Some of the questions that are being asked is how do I gain more subscribers to may channel?! And obviously the second question is how do I get 4000 watch hours or watch time? Here are some quick pointers that should help you.
First you need to be consistent. For the next twelve to eighteen months uploading videos when you say you're going to upload them. Come up with a schedule that is right for you and upload at that time, everytime that you say that you're going to. More is better but set it to your life schedule and goals. So, this means that you can only upload once a week then keep it, set it and be consistent at it. So, that people will know when to expect you online and/or your upload.
Next you need to improve over time. If you want people to watch your videos for a longer duration upload quality work and improve over time. Always look for ways to improve your videos and your channel. This includes but is not limited to graphics and text art or word art, as well as video quality and editing.
Now let's talk about Search Engine Optimization -SEO, you're trying to give YouTube enough information that when someone search for a topic YouTube knows that your video satisfy that request. One way to do that is metadata and trying to make the data relevant to that search as much as possible. So, know what people are searching for helps a lot and then match all of your metadata to those search terms. In conjunction with that is keyword research and setting your key words so that it will rank in YouTube. Here is a link that will help you out.
The last thing that I am going to talk about today is branding and your thumb nails. You must look at yourself/channel as a business and your business need a brand and/or a face. This carries over to your YouTube Thumbnails. If you want people to know you as the face of your videos then your face needs to be included in your YouTube videos. This is the same if it was your business or YouTube logo. Your channel art and theme should reflect other associated artwork, thumbnails and videos. You want to include it in everything that is associated with what your business/YouTube channel and everything that your channel puts out and/or is involved in.
The JB&I Show is gone but the I.Middleton Entertainment - Fire Nation YouTube channel is still there, what now? A lot of thing affected the JB&I Show demise. One is its declining views and hardship of putting the show together. I am not saying that I will not bring it back at a later date but as for now the JB&I Show is gone. With the updates to the YouTube policies it kind of placed the nail in the coffin as it were. So, what now, you may ask? Well, a consolidation effort is going into place and I am going to be doing four major topics on the IME - Fire Nation YouTube channel. First the IME Blog is going to be a YouTube show and we will be talking about everything entertainment. The IME Blog is a form of the JB&I Show so don't be surprised if you start seeing the JB&I Show again soon.
So, one of the four topics will be entertainment, the next will be gaming I will be uploading gaming streams from Twitch.tv/8010az to YouTube. You can watch me live every Sunday at 10pm. The other type of videos that I am going to be uploading is fitness videos. Firehawk fitness is something that I am starting to help myself and others gain a healthier life through fitness and nutrition. In conjunction with this leads me to my last topic witch is motivation videos. All of us need some motivation sometimes, even me. So, I will be encouraging you to do that thing that you know that you can do but is afraid to do because of the possibility of failure. And I will continue to encourage you to keep going once you have made that decision to do it.
I am going to close with, everybody fails. It is the ones that get back up and continue and never give up is the ones that you read about and learn there resolve for success and are successful. I want to encourage you. You can do it. Never give up, don't ever give up. Keep plugging away and keep pushing. You can do it. It took me many years to finish my degree but I was able to achieve that goal through this process of never giving up. Have a wonderful and blessed day.
Hello Friends, fans, and family,
I am going to be making a lot of changes to the IME website. I am going to start with the first page and then I am going to work on each and every page. My goal is to make it more pleasurable for you and promote the attitude and theme that I want my brand to be. Fitness, Gaming, and Entertainment this includes but is not limited to acting, broadcasting, hosting, promotions, working out, podcasting and so on. My goal is o provide the best quality entertainment and products possible while earning a living. I am hoping that my redesign is going to promote that and do that so I am going to be narrowing down a lot of things so that I can focus on one thing at a time. I must do the best that I can and be the best that I can be. I believe in myself. These are the things that you should be saying to yourself. You need to believe in you.
Now, let's talk about Black Panther. As you may or may not know that the Black Panther movie comes out this month everywhere on the 16th. I am looking forward to seeing it. I have high expectations for this movie and I believe that they are going to deliver. From what I have seen so far they have an outstanding concept of Wakanda and all of the different tribes. I am looking forward to seeing all of the special effects and battle scenes. I also want to see how they integrate from the Captain America Civil War movie to Black Panther. They have been talks and scenes that should effectively merge the two. The death of the king is a great subject line and segway into why everything is happening in Wakanda. We must have new gear and awesome products for me to purchase, haha. So, I say definitely check out the Black Panther when it comes out February 16, 2018.
Okay, Black Lightning is going strong and I am totally please with what I have seen so far. I think that the directors are doing a great job and casting have casted the best actors for this awesome TV Show. I like the colors that they have chosen for this show and as you may or maynot know the villians make or break the show. If you're villain is way too powerful for the hero then it is, why, have that hero go against this guy unless the hero somehow gains more power through the course of the season to defeat the overpowered super villain. The same goes for if you're villain is too weak then it still is, why, because the hero is way too strong for the villain. Unless that is apart of promotional stuff and we the audience finds out that the villain is way stronger than he/she or production lead us to believe. I think that they done an awesome job with Black Lightning in this. Give me your feedback on this show or any show that you would like me to talk about and I will review the show and talk about it in my next video.
I am going to close with, it is up to you to decide what your passion is and then go after it. Do all that you can do to support and make your passion your every day. What you chose to do for a living is your choice. You may do something until, whatever, but make sure that you stay focus on your goal(s). If you are doing something that you want to do then it is not work. Moreover, you tend to put more time into something that you enjoy doing. The main thing is set a plan review your plan and stay focused on your plan. Have fun, enjoy yourself and work hard and consistent. Have a wonderful and blessed day and thank you for reading and for your support.
Hello friends, fans and family,
today I want to talk to you about fitness and entertainment. If you don't know I am a big supporter of fitness and health. I have been working on my fitness level since I was young in middle school and if I want to totally be honest since I was in city league football so that would be like ten years old maybe even younger then that, haha. My point is I seen the importance of being healthy and fit. Not everyone wants to be and/or needs to be at the same fitness level. But from what I have seen everyone like to see that person fit, in shape, and healthy. It is reflected in the movies and TV Shows, it is also reflected in the comic books and summer and spring times at the beach. So, to say that fitness is not entertaining is not true on so many levels because we get great joy seeing that fit person strut their stuff and especially if we are that fit person. The satisfaction of achieving that long journey of fitness is satisfying on so many levels it is hard to explain.
The fitness journey is a never ending journey because the person is constantly monitoring the intake of food, the output of working out and cardio. Trying to keep their body engaged and in s state of relative shock to maximise their results. I know that I do. I watch fitness videos on YouTube and I checkout Mac Trucc and Kali Muscle And CT Fletcher and I am inspired by their successes and achievements and even inspired by their struggles. Because selfishly sometimes it is good to know that they are going through some struggles as well and still maintain that go get'em attitude. My hat is off to them because they have fans that are engaged in their fitness lives and actively support them. I pray for CT Fletcher every day and I pray that he achieved his goals and get a new heart. I like watching these awesome fitness leaders because they are inspiring and showing that it can be done regardless of your back ground, no matter what your age, no matter what your ethnicity, no matter your heritage. You can do it too.
I watch Big Boy From Strength Cartel and Mike O'hearn and I realize how hard it is to do this fitness thing. It is even harder to stay fit and healthy but they are doing it. They are sharing their lives with us so that we can be entertained and inspired. I read that if you show someone that it can be done then that in itself will remove most of the automatic limiters that we placed on ourselves. These limiters comes in many forms and one major form is self doubt, but I am also include self hate and fear. Now, when you compound that with the naysayers then that is a recipe for failure. You/Me must overcome the internal battle first and foremost before we will ever have a chance achieve any of our goals. The outside distractions will not even be a factor once the internal is conquered and for all of you Christians out there, you are more than conquerors, so, conquer it.
No, it is not going to be easy and yes you may lose some friends along the way. But it is achievable. In any goal achievement you have to deal with two things that has always been a problem for all of us. What is that you may ask?! Well, I am glad that you asked, it is time and pain. Time is something that never waits and is always running no matter what you do and/or say time marches on. Once you add in pain that by itself will get most people to quit and give up. But now pain is team up with time to stop you from achieving your goals. And this dynamic duo is ruthless and merciless and continuous. So, you missed one day but it's okay because it is just one day and then something else pops up, and then something else comes up, and finally you have a chance to workout but it is cold this morning and no one like to get up and run and/or go to the in the gym in the cold. So, you don't go and now it has been two weeks and you have not worked out at all since two weeks ago or longer. Now, time starts to speak to you, "Don't go back to the gym. It is too much of a hasle."
But you are strong and you decide to go and you workout and the next day you are sore and in pain. Time and pain comes to you and says, " I don't know why you are trying so hard. Noone is going to notice all of the work that you're doing." It's been a month since your last workout and you all but given up. Flipping through some YouTube videos you see a motivation video and people saying exactly what you are feeling. You think to yourself how can they know exactly what I am going through. Wow, but the next part that you hear is even more surprising. They tell you that it is not too late that you can still achieve your fitness goals and they say that it is achievable and you can see that it is achievable because they did it. So, you head back to the gym and you're relentless and no matter what pain and time through at you, you manage to stay in the gym and stay consistent. Not even the naysayers can get you to quit. Your internal fears has turned into hope and drive. One day you take a photo of yourself and you have done it. You think to yourself not too long ago I was in pain not just physically but mentally and time never stopped once and waited for me to recover. But I was still able to achieve my fitness goals and the naysayers became your praisers and haters, and that is okay because you know now that it was you who stopped you and not them. Because you decided to not let them stop you.
I started my fitness journey and I am starting over every day and I realize how hard it is to keep going and how easy it is to give up. I also realize that no one is going to care if I fail. My YouTube channel has no viewers and my podcast ended. My show, the JB&I Show faded aways and no one mentioned a word about it to me. I ask myself why and I realized that I allowed myself to fail. As hard as it was to accept I decided to allow that pain to set in and I decide to start anew and achieve my fitness goals. How can I hate someone for doing the same thing that I am doing to myself. I got a message from YouTube saying because of the new policies and updated rules and regulations that I must now must have over a thousand subscribers and over so many hours of viewer watch hours per month. So, in a nutshell it is like receiving a pink slip in the email. I will no longer be a YouTube partner. In essence I am fired but I can reapply for partnership if I am able to meet the new minimum requirements. Of course fear steps in and I wonder how am I going to get people to watch my videos and I am I going to keep people engaged?!
It was hard talking about this because I don't know if I should even try to re-establish my YouTube channel. Is God trying to tell me something?! Or, am I just being a coward because I am looking for an excuse to give up. What if I try and give it my all and still fail? What then?! At this point I am not just talking about my YouTube channel, no, I am talking about all of my goals that I am attempting to achieve. My inspiration came from a place that I never expected, the bible. Wow, I never expected to receive motivation from the bible. Now, my journey is not over and it is never easy talking about something that is still in development because of the possibility of failure. The embarrassment of saying I failed, again, but what if I am able to achieve my goals. I won't need my YouTube channel. It would be an added bonus but not a necessity.
So, I am going to close with, you are your own worst enemy. You will talk yourself out of some of the awesome things that only you can do, only you can inspire, only you can achieve for yourself. The cliche goes, every journey begins with one step but most people are too afraid of taking that first step because of the possibility of failure. Sometimes, failing is the best thing that could ever happen to us. Celebrate your achievements no matter how small you think that it is because you never know who is watching and whom you may be inspiring. Once the celebration is over, once that moment is done, keep going and don't give up. Never give up. You can do it.
Hello friends, fans, and family,
If you have not seen Black Lightning then you need to see it. It was exciting to watch and I encourage you all to see it. I just hope that they continue to put there best efforts forward. Now, don't get me wrong they are issues that I see with the show. They are using a lot of stereotypes, and I am guess that it is because they wanted to express the community's destress. The performances of all of the actors and actresses involved in the show was nothing less than awesome.
They gave us the depth that we needed to see and feel to gain the gravity of the show. We got to see the big bad of the season and the immediate threat. How Black Lightning is going to deal with it is going to be awesome. We knew from the previous reports that his daughters were going to get powers but to see it, oh my, it was excellent. Only one episode is out right now so not a whole lot to report and talk about. I am going to talk about more later and how I think his daughters are going to play a factor in saving their community and city.
With the outstanding opening of Black Lightning I think that it just makes us want to see more and I for one want to see how they going to show the development of Black Lightning as he tries to save his community and re-establishes his family and train his daughters to safely use their powers. Of course he is not going to want them to get into the life of crime fighting. But, I think that they are going to be deeply involved whether they want to or not and I believe that they are going to want to help. I know that they will help and to see them use their newfound powers is going to be exciting.
I also play Hearthstone I have a stream that is on Twitch.tv it is called 8010az. I also have it on here as well. The link is here, even though I don't play all of the time when I do it is a lot of fun. I enjoy interacting with people in chat and talking about the game and even life. I also play other games but Hearthstone is my favorite game to play. The theme of my channel/community is theFire Nation/8010az. I am Da Fire Hawk and as a viewer and chatter in my stream you are apart of my team, Team Fire Hawk. I stream when I am not on an acting/background job. Even though I am always submitting myself for work (every day) I don't always find work. I also have a workout schedule that I re-started today as well, haha. I am improving my health and achieving my fitness goals.
I am going to close with, It is not easy doing something that is going to take more than a day to achieve because the laziness sets in and also the complacency. They are so many reasons why you should skip a day and/or stop trying because of past failures and the naysayers who always seem to be around when you do fail or at least that is how it is for me. However, to be honest I do fail a lot, haha. Have a wonderful and great day and as always, thank you for your support.
Hello friends, fans and family,
you all are suppers and I consider you all apart of the family - Team FireHawk. I was asked to explain what the Fire Nation - Team FireHawk is all about so I am dedicating this post to that end. I will also talk about other things but I will try to answer your questions that you ask me. 8010az came about as a username that I used to play video games back in the day. When I started my twitch channel 8010az I also attached the Fire Nation to 8010az and I hired someone to do the logo for me. He delivered what I asked for and I was thrilled at what I had seen. At that moment the Fire Nation was born.
The team FireHawk concept came about when one of my viewers said that they wanted to be apart of team FireHawk. This was new to me and I never heard of such a thing even though I called myself FireHawk when I am doing my broadcast. I need you to understand something, I have been calling myself FireHawk since I was DJing. I was DJ FireHawk for all of this time and not once did anyone said that to me. So, I added team FireHawk to the Fire Nation concept and it worked. People liked the idea of being apart of the team and a community.
So, I submit to you an understanding and ethos of what The Fire Nation - Team FireHawk is about. The Fire Nation is a community of people who support each other and we come from all walks of life. We have chosen to support each other in our prospective careers, so, not all of us are streamers, not all of us are fitness professionals, and not all of us are actors but all of us see the importance of pursuing our dreams. We know that doing something that is not considered normal or of the average every day will be considered crazy and even stupid. Our stand is that if you believe in yourself enough to pursue your goal of whatever. You deserve to get the support that you need. We also know that you are going to have failures and pitfalls. But if you keep going and if you continue to fight and yes I say fight because it is a battle and you may not be battling someone or a person.
Listen to you on this, you may be battling your own laziness, you maybe battling poverty, you maybe battling other people precepts about you. This fight, your fight will only end when you achieve your goals. But I encourage you to not stop there continue to battle to continue to improve and to continue to grow. Don't be average! You have worked too hard to allow yourself to just be average. I don't care what profession that you are in, never be average.
Always strive to be better and to be the best that you can be. This is the ethos and the concept of the Fire Nation - Team Fire Hawk. So, you will see me mention fitness, acting, gaming and more as we grow as a team and a nation. I always consider that I stop being "normal" when I joined the military. So, the aspect of average has never been something that I strive for. You as yourself should never strive to be average and you may even ask why would someone try to be just average?! Well, the answer is to fit in and to be accepted. But are you truly being accepted or did you just killed yourself from being you to the fullest?! If they did accept you for what you presented yourself to be and that is not truly you, then they still did not accept you. Be you to the fullest you are above average so be above average.
Now, let talk about some TV shows. Like, Supergirl. Supergirl is moving to a different time. DC's Legends of Tomorrow is going to take her time slot. It is confirmed that Kid Flash is going to be with them and I am interested to see for how long and how they use him. Another show that debuts this week, maybe today is Black Lightning. I am expecting Black Lightning to be great just basing from what I have seen on the TV trailers. I really believe that you are going to enjoy this series and his daughters are going to be super heroes as well. The Flash is also going to be back and Berry is on trial for a murder that he did not commit.
I am very interested to see how that handle it and if they can prove his innocence. What are they going to sacrifice to prove him to be innocent? Will Joe cross the line will Iris tell everyone that he is the FLash to set him free? If she does this will it set him free but at what cost. Okay, y'all that is my run down. Is there anything that you want me to cover? Please leave your suggestions in the comments below. Do you want me to talk more about a movie or show? Would you like for me to go into more detail about a show? Leave all of this in the comments and I will respond. Thank you.
I am going to close with, Every journey long or short beings with one step and we never will be ready to take that first step. Also, that first step is also the scariest of all of the steps because it is unknown and you can't see anything to help you determine if it is a good step or not. But if it is something that you want to do, such as finish school, start a business, and so on. Not taking that step would be worst because you will always be wondering what if? Or you end up saying I would have but, I could have but, I should have but, and the bottom line would be that you did not.
A lot of inventions start with failures and disappointments and people saying that you are crazy for even trying. I will use myself in this instance, I get told that I am too old, too short and too dumb to be an actor. But I believe that I can do it and do well at it. I am also told that there is no look like mine that will get me cast in any "real production". I am told to just give up because no one is going to see my talents, and no one is going to give me a chance, and no one is going to help me. People will kick me down and beat me down before they help me up. However, I believe in me and I also have a few other people who also encourages me. My journey is not over and I have a long way to go but I believe that I can do it. Thank you for always reading my blog, thank you for your support, have a great day.
Hello Friends, fans, family and supporters,
I added in supporters because I have a few who believes that they fits more in that category than friends and fans but I think of you all as family. I am going to answer a few questions that I was asked. The first question is the JB&I Show coming back? As of right now I am not sure. Every episode is done by me and as my schedule fills up it is harder and harder to do. I thank you for your support and I will put out more JB&I Show content but our views is dropping and it maybe because I have not been putting out more than one show a week. Due to me either working in acting or working as an Uber driver I have not been able to put out more than a few JB&I Shows a month. I also sold my camera as well so that does not help things either. Ah, I am thinking about finishing the JB&I Show and I may replace it with something else but I am not feeling encouraged at the moment to do another show. I hope that answers your question.
My other question is how is my acting career coming along and do I see myself doing some major productions this year? Well, I believe that my acting career is coming along just fine. I am constantly submitting myself for acting jobs on a daily basis and I am constantly looking for acting work as well as networking. I am with Hollywood Original Talent. Lisa Butler is the president. I am really stoked to be with these guys. Here is a bit more about them: Hollywood Original Talent is a full-service talent agency located right in the heart of Hollywood that specializes in diverse talent. Los Angeles is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world, so it's only natural that an LA based talent agency such as HOT Agency, would be able to fill any casting need by offering the most exceptional and uniquely original talent.
I am not a SAG/AFTRA but I am endeavouring to be in the union. Here is the steps of becoming a "union" actor. It is not an easy road and I am working very hard to become union, and all that I have to is this: A performer becomes eligible for SAG-AFTRA membership under one of the following two conditions: (1) proof of SAG or AFTRA employment or (2) employment under an affiliated performers’ union.
I am still optimistic and determined but I am not going to pretend that I am not working extremely hard or that this journey has not have an affect on me. However, I am still happy and still working hard. I give all of that credit to God and friends and of course to all of my supporters like you. Those are the questions that I have been asked for the new year. I will keep you posted on how things are going. As I am able to do so I may not be able to say everything due to NDA but I will say what I can, when I can. This projection is an optimistic outlook on this year and my acting career.
Now, let talk about returning shows. Marvel Runaways has been renewed for another season, The Flash and Arrow is also returning. DC Legends of Tomorrow lost FireStorm but he will be replaced with Wally West (Kid Flash). It is not certain if he is going to be with them for more than just one season. He may end up on Teen Titans/Young Justice. Either way it is good to see them using him more. He has come along way. Supergirl is also returning they are going to be going to a new time to make room for DC Legends of Tomorrow. I am excited to see all of these TV SHows returning. I am actually hoping to be on the show one day. That would be so cool.
Some New shows that are coming this season is Black lighting and Cloak and Dagger I am really excited to see them creating these comic book superheroes. I am extremely interested in seeing how the prtry these comic book heroes. How are they going to make them relevant to today's day and age of viewers and nerds like me, haha Okay, that is it for now.
I am going to close with, thank you for your support and love. Thank you for allowing me to share portions of my life with you. I know that even though that I have training and experience I know that I still have a lot to learn. Thank you for coming on this journey with me.
Hello friends, fans and family,
Now that we are in the new year it is a time for a new beginning and continued struggles. We make a new resolution for this new year and we even make detailed plans on how to keep how new resolution active and relevant. As long as we don't give up and move forward towards our self given goals we can achieve it. Even if it is losing 100 lbs over the whole year. I want to encourage you to achieve your goals, I will write about my journey as I endeavour to lose weight and be healthier. It is something that a lot of us do at the beginning of the year. We say that we are going to lose weight and in that there is nothing wrong, however, where we get mislead is the time frame and amount in that time frame that we are trying to lose. They are personal trainers that you can and should higher to help you navigate this treacherous course. I understand what people say about having a new resolution in a new year and how long it is going to last. They can say what they want but they don't make decisions for you. You decide whether or not you are going to achieve your goals not them.
Now, that we have covered making a resolution in the new year, they are so many movies that are coming out this year. One of which is Black Panther, I am expecting so much from this movie. I really like the direction and the theme that they have chosen, even the music is awesome. So, of course I am highly suggesting that you all see this move. Black Panther comes out in February of this year.
I am going to write about my journey in me losing weight and getting in to shape. I may even post it on YouTube, if you all agree to follow and give your inputs. I am not sure what I am going to call this journey but it would be great if you came along.
Okay, here is my first entry. I have been doing a lot of research and the first part of weight control and weight lost is eating. I have set some dishes that will be a challenge for me. But I believe that I can do it. Me eating healthy will play apart in my workouts as well. I have set an eating regiment one meal every three hours. I nice small portioned meal that contain protein, and vegetables. I shall also drink a lot of water, one gallon a day as well as protein drinks to supplement me after workouts. I am also going to be taking BCAAs in liquid form. This is that first step and the first step is complete. Stay tuned as I continue my journey of losing weight and fitness.
I am going to close with, acting and entertainment is so much work that many will chose to go another way. This path, this rigorous road of survival, entertainment, and family collide. I knowing of such things and realizing that many will attempt it and fail. We continue forward, we continue to hope, train, and explore the possibilities of success. But in this union based business, only a certain few will be accepted in and even less will remain in the end. So, why do we journey such perilous paths.
Do these people, do we, enjoy such things?! This pain that we feel, this rejection that we get from the countless auditions and endless streams of "No" is more prevalent than that yes with monetary earnings. This is multiplied and amplified if you're not in the union. With no solid ways into the union one can just pray and hope that they will figure out away to get three vouchers and/or on board a union production. They are many things associated with trying to be apart of the union, many benefits.
If we are going to do this we must prepare and be focused. They are going to be naysayers all along the way but this journey that will be ever going will be a journey filled with pitfalls and failures. Nevertheless, we can call this journey successful if we are able to achieve our goal of becoming apart of an on going production as a full time union actor with a speaking role. Be encouraged and never allow anyone to convince you that you are nothing and that you are worthless. You are awesome and wonderful, as well as smart and beautiful/handsome.
