Hello friends, fans, and family,
How are you doing? I hope and pray that you are having an excellent day. I have an awesome announcement, I. Middleton Entertainment (IME) is now an LLC or Limited Liability company. We got or LLC this year. I am so happy to announce this. What does it mean in general and for you. Well, before IME was listed as a Sole proprietor which made it attached to my SSN. This is not good for so many reasons and I could be a hindrance to my own company. Now, that it is an LLC it can grow as a business and it is no longer attached to me in that way. I am so excited. It does cost a lot to do this and all of the stuff that is needed. They are a lot of good services out there that you can choose from so do your research and make the best decision for you. Okay, IME LLC baby!!! Haha... I am so happy.
IME's first offical project as an LLC is our mobile game: Cupcake Hop. Cupcake hop has been three years in the making and a lot of changes and effort went into it. It's a simple free to play game that I know that you will love. You can use the ads to upgrade you charater. We do have more games coming your way. Please, check it out and let us know what you think about it. The only down side right now is that our game is only available on andriod, so, sorry iphone users, haha. Other than that it is a simple free to play game that I know that you will love. Ah, thank you so much again for your support. My company is extremely small but I believe that we will grow over time and I will be hiring people to be apart of my company. IME will also be hiring other companies to work with us. This is just an idea right now but I am hopeful that we will be able to turn it into reality in a few years or so. It is apart of our five year plan, alone with a lto of other stuff. Now, this does depend on how our products perform over the years.
I am going to close with, Starting a company and/or pursuing your dreams can be dauoghnting at first. Don't focus on your over all task. Focus on one singlar part at a time, after you have your peices together. That way as you complate it you are that much closer to completing your over all objectives and/or goals. You will have trials and tribulations, this is a part of the process. Do not allow yourself to be discoraged. Stay foused and get it done. You can do it. Love yall!
Hello Friends, fans and family,
How are you doing today? I hope that you are having a good day. On July 14, 2023, the American actors' union SAG-AFTRA went on strike over an ongoing labor dispute with the Alliance of Motion Picture and Television Producers. It has coincided with the Writers Guild of America strike that began in May in a series of broader Hollywood labor disputes. (from Wikipedia). The actor's efforts have not gone unnoticed. The hope is that we are able to bring this to an end as soon as possible, however, the plan is to go as long as it is needed to get the resolve that we are working so hard for. A livable wage is not too much to ask for. To have some form of protection against AI or moreover, companies using AI to use our likeness to do TV Shows and movies and such like that without adequate compensation. All of this is very important to us and moreover, a major concern for us actors.
As an SAG.AFTRA member, I am an actor, and I am with the union in their decision to strike and yes if you come out, you will see me out there. I am not an A-Lister, or even a B or C lister for that matter. I guess I would fall somewhere around F or D, haha. I have done a lot of background work in my day and I am now doing a lot of principle roles; I am totally thankful for it all. I got in the union doing background, and I thank God for that. I treat acting like a regular job, I show up on time or early, I pay attention and I am engaged with what is going on. It was not and has not been easy for me. So, being in the union is very important to me. It took me a while to qualify to join the union. The union is so important to me and in general. The union are there when we need them. Also, being in the union grants us the ability to call ourselves a professional actor because we have put in so much work that is necessary to get to the next level. Now that I am getting principal roles, I still thank God every day. But honestly, I still can't say that I am a working actor, or at least not yet. I won't go into all of my gripes right now but I am hopeful that with a better contract we can have a livable wage and I can be a real working actor. There's no bitterness towards the process, just the pains of failing over, and over again. But that is also what makes it so sweet when (speaking in faith) I make it. For me, "making it" is being a working actor, where my only job is acting. Not that I am not going to do other things but that I don't have to get a side hustle or two or three to pay the bills.
I am going to close with, STEM will always be prime and definitely needed. STEM is needed in every society, city, state and country. However, arts or the arts are needed as well. Some people are born to be creatives, or creators. Others work very hard to do the same but we all work extremely hard be considered professionals. So, to have artist in your society is a blessing and we are needed as much as STEM. I may never be an "A-Lister" I will always be a professional. Peace, Love and blessings to you all.
Hello friends, fans and family,
I know that I have not been posting lately but my love is always with you all. Happy Birthday to my brother, you are awesome man. I have been really busy to be honest. I know that a lot of you all have flowed to over to YouTube and thank you so much for that, you all made my day, week and year. I am still working on my music, I guess I should call it our music, haha. You all are showing me so much love. So, here is the quick run down, I am an actor, singer/song writer, writer, podcaster, YouTuber, Live broadcaster, and artist. I live stream on Twitch, YouTube, Rumble, and bigo, and Facebook. I also released a song last year and some books. Ah, IME, my company, has finished its first mobile game which is free to play. So, as you can read, I am doing a lot. I also have My Fit Watch.net where you can find my merch and stuff like that. Time Management is very important as well as prioritizing. Most importantly, making sure that you all know how important you all are to me and thank you so much for your support.
I just wanted to take the time to say thank you. Thank you for your support and showing me love and being there for me and listening to my music, and watching my videos, all of that. Thank you so much! I am still working on more stuff and some of it I am planning on releasing this year. If it is okay with you all, please, let me know if it is okay, I would like to say your user names and/or whatever name that you would allow me to say, so that I can thank you all for your support. This is just so that I can show you all my appreciation.
I am going to close with, times will get hard and no matter how much you prepare there is always going to be an amount of time or a situation that you are not ready for and that is normal. Do your best, adapt and overcome. You are awesome and wonderful. Have a great day and rest of your month.
My Top 5 Music is a JB&I Show segemnt that showcases music from, you. I ask for music that you like and woul dlike for me/us to review and arrange in an order of what we think about it. This is a voting thing as well as our opion. We iive you the supporter to submit your music or music that you like and we all say what we like and/or dislike about it. Once our deliberation period is over we set it in an order. We only do this show once a month as of right now. If we get many submission we will do more. If you don't agree with the arrangement please feel free to ask us to reevaluate it and we will. It may place the same and/or higher. However, it will get more exposoure and we will enjoy presenting it and allow comments on it.
Ah, so far it seems like you all like it so I will continue to do it as long as we continue to recieve submission from you. We will have more My Top 5 Music this year but its continuation will depend on you and the music that we recieve. I do enjoy doing it but if the views continue to drop I will assume that you all don't want to see it anymore or as much of it. Therefore it will either not but done anymore or not as much. I do enjoy doing My Top 5 Music but it you don't watch it and the watch time and such drops drasstically then, yes its going away, haha.
To enjoy on a good note: In conclusion. IME YTC does music, movie, tv shows, media reviews. We also do motivational and fitness videos as well. I am always asking and looking for your thoughts and cooments, I want to hear from you. Keep it PG and such so that YouTube does strike me and I would have to remove your comment(s). So, keep it good and respectful and be honest at the same time. Have fun and I look forward to hearing from you.
Welcome to the New Year 2023 is here and we are full steam. You can't turn back now. All we can do at this point is learn and move forward. I talk a lot about fitness, motivation and music. In those post I talk about learning and moving forward. We can't (to my knowledge) turn back time. But we can learn, improve and adjust, pivot and give up. We never want to give up. And I understand. I don't want you to give up but that does not mean that you will not want to give up. In some cases you should give up or at least pivot. In example a well renowned actor give up his acting career to take care of his children. Because it was one or the other and he chose his children.
However, all of us are not faced with choices like this most of the time we choose to give up because we don't want to be consistent, we don't want to work to the gym in the morning or after work. We don't want to push our selves and take that extra step to do that thing that we want to do. How can you want to chisel your body without putting the time and efforts into it?! You can't, some of us are naturally gifted and we have what they call the A+ genetics. God bless you but for me and the rest of us we have to work extremely hard. We have to be consistent, we have to be discipline, we have to be determined and we have to be willing to learn. This is not just with fitness, it is also true in acting, teaching, leadership, and any skill set. As an over simplification if you were to boil it all down to: Consistency, discipline, determination, and the willingness to learn and improve.
In Conclusion: It is going to take a lot of hard work. It's NOT going to be easy (all of the time). If you are naturally gifted at something and/or if you really enjoy doing something it's not hard. All of the hard work that we put into that thing that we want to do may not seem like hard work. However, this is not the norm all of the time. We will have lazy days, we will have days that we will want to sleep all day, and we will have days where we will want to go against everything that we have been working towards for the last how many days, weeks, and years. It happens. We need to be aware of this, in those times we are fighting against ourselves. This is why I said we have to fight against our laziness, however, everything has it's place. Be lazy on days off, be lazy on vacation (real vacations) Be lazy on your designated days. You are in control, you are the ruler of your life. The KING or the QUEEN of your life. You are allowing people, suggestions and things to have dominance in your life. You can fight against it and/or allow it. It is up to you.
Thank you for your time, and for being here and reading. I am Isaac Middleton. I am a singer/song writer, actor, blogger, podcaster, YouTuber and creator. I am the host of the JB&I Show, which is a podcast and YouTube video. I am also a motivator, fitness enthusiast, and the Fire Hawk.

Hello friends, fans, and family,
I never like talking bad about anyone and I am going to start now. However, I am going to mention the issues that I am having with another Isaac M. His name is Isaac Mondo and he is from France. I initially was not aware of his existence. He is in a different country than me so I had no reason to seek him out. I distribute through CD Baby and I work well with them and I recommend them to any artist, however, things do get crossed from time to time especially when to groups of people has the same name even if they are from different countries. This is what happened with us and it is an easy fix. He contacts his distribution company and I contact CD Baby and point out the songs that are not mine and the ones that are mine. Which is what I did when it was brought to my attention by Isaac Mondo. CD Baby said that they would fix the issue and that there is nothing to worry about. I said, okay cool and I let Isaac Mondo know of this.
He contacted me again later asking me to change my name. I said, no. I have a lot invested into my name and I am not going to change my name. I told him that I would drop the period from my name because at the time we both had the stage name "Isaac M." So, I said that I would drop the period from my name that way that there is some separation in our names. I reassured him that I was not getting any of his royalties because I was not getting any of his royalties. I never gotten any royalties from his products, I checked often because I did not want to get any thing of his that should go to him. I never got anything that should go to him. After this I didn't hear anything else from him. I noticed that his music was eventually moved from my pages across all platforms and I was relieved because I thought that it was over.
It was not over I don't know how he did it but I can surmise as to why he did but what he did was to claim my music as his own. This is more than just petty it is straight out wrong. He claims himself to be a child of God as this is catalogue. For a fellow Christian to do such a thing is tasteless and mean. So, I had not choice but to reach out to him and ask him to reverse whatever he had done and to return my products back to me. I said, that you can say that it was a mistake or whatever but I expect my products to be returned to me. I got no response from him. After about a week I decided to take action. I started reaching out to all of the platforms that I knew that he had my music on it and I reported it. Allowing the platform to know that he had stolen products on there platforms and potentially getting profit from my products that he stole from me. I don't know how he did it or why really other than his own pettiness. I lost my music on YouTube Spotify and almost all other digital platforms. I even lost subscribers on YouTube. I have an active marketing campaign for several of my website and products that are on YouTube, and other digital platforms. I don't even know what he is telling people or how he is justifying his actions against me but I cannot allow this.
I did not think that in this day and age that things like this would still happen and to the degree that it happens. I hear some of the horror stories but to have it actually happen to me, I am in awe. Let me know of your thought about this and Happy Holidays and Merry Christmas to you all. Love ya'' and thank you for your support.
Hello friends, fans and members,
I hope that your day is going well. I greet you in this glorious day of our Lord. This segment is about the Woman King - Viola David. A lot of people say that the movie promote an anti-men and anti-relationship thing in the movie. I disagree. A lot of people has been just hating on the movie. When the movie has gotten a 94% in Rotten Tomatoes, 6.7 of 10 in IMDB and 8 of 10 in IGN. So, clearly the people has spoken. And I agree, there is nothing of that sort outside of the primes of the movie. As a matter of fact people like the movie so much some has watched the movie more than three times.
The Movie was directed by Gina Prince-Bythewood she also directed Love & Basketball, Disappearing Acts and the Secret Life of Bees just to name a few. Even though the movie was inspired by true events the movie is not a documentary. So, it is heavily fictionalized and dramatized. With that being said, I want to mention the amount of people pointing out that the movie did not follow actual historical events. Ah, of course it did not, even though the frame work is true the rest is heavily fictional. So, if you go to see this movie to enjoy it, you will enjoy the Woman King, a lot.
The Woman King is distributed by, Sony Pictures and Tristar Pictures. Their Budget was $50 million to make. That is a really good budget and I think that they did well in making this most excellent movie. This movie was produced by, Viola Davis, Julius Tennon, Cathy Schulman and Maria Bello. So, a lot of people believed in the movie to invest their hard earn money into it. The Woman King was released state side in Sept 16, 2022. Before its release date a lot of people was hoping that the movie did not do well... really?! However, it did very well, extremely well in fact. I for one am happy to see it do so well. I have always been a big fan of Viola Davis and the energy and work that she brings to the table.

I just want to add that you won't believe the price when you see it. You get so much for so little the cost. Click the link and see for yourself. I have already purchased mine. You gotta get yours, haha... I am not going to share mine, haha.
The other movie that I am going to mention is Black Panther. After the death of Chadwick Bosman a lot of people thought that the franchise was dead, I mean, they lost there main star... to actual death. How can you recover from that?! But some how they did. They were able to bounce back and come up with a storyline that I think everyone will enjoy and appreciate. I can go on and on about who is taking up the mantle of the Black Panther, protector of Wakanda and how awesome that is but I am just going to say, it is going to be magnificent. I have seen both trailers and wow, even the trailers brought me to tears and joy in a two min time frame. I am in awe at the effort that they put into this movie. I am expecting great things and I believe that Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will deliver. The release date as of the writing of this blog is: 11-Nov-2022. Sitting on pins and needles waiting on this highly anticipated movie.
I am going to close with, be true to who you are and make the changes that you need and want to make in your life to be a better you. Sometimes, it is never easy and always inconvenient, haha. But it is also not impossible and you can do it. Believe in yourself and
