Welcome to the Fire Nation - 8010az
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.
New Shows and Returning Shows
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.
Happy New Year!
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.
