Hello! Is it me your looking for!? | I stay busy, if you haven’t noticed

Hello Hello! Its been a long time since I’ve published content on my own site. I have been terribly busy with some client projects as well as some other personal projects that I can’t wait to share, very soon.

I have steadily been making some changes on the https://www.wizardmmd.com site, so go over there and check the updates out! And as always if you need some magic graphics, you know where to go! We have been landing a lot of really fun projects. Designing shirts, logos, websites…. It feels good to do what you love for a living.

I’ve been working a lot on some new pillar content that I will be rolling out within the next few months, super valuable and I hope it helps people, so we’ll see how that goes, still got a few things to nail down. Trying to get better at posting everyday on my Facebook Page, so if you could go hit that with a follow, I appreciate all the support more than anyone of you will ever know!

As you all know I am a man of many hats, and I love to personally experience a variety of different niches, activities, professions, communities, hobbies, etc.. One thing I have always loved since I was a wee lil child is video games, and I figured since I play so much of them I should stream it. So boom my Twitch Channel is now live and it is one more social channel I aim to grow, though this is more of a side project just for fun, I have already met incredible people in the gaming and streaming industry and gained valuable connections and have also acquired design business from streamers looking for graphics, its a prime example on how you can hustle through all social media channels no matter what your doing. Not only can people donate to my channel, which no one has yet, but I’m still sort of making money while playing video games. So go follow my Twitch Channel and support me there as well! The people that support me on all of the like 1000 social pages I have you guys are the real G’s!!! I will also do real life streaming from there and my youtube channel!

Speaking of which, I upgraded my equipment and setup for my streaming! Check it out! 4 screens but I need more! Lol

Im trying to mess around more with photography and videography, Its been such shitty weather everyday though, I guess I just need to get an umbrella and shoot some rainy shots lol. I want to start to challenge myself to capture at least 1 incredible picture a day. I think that could be fun and keep me focused. Im thinking of a videography challenge, perhaps take a random clip every day and at the end of the month edit them all into a short video of some sort, hmmm. Perhaps.

And as always I am always working on adding more content to this site, my home base. Im still working out exactly how I want to structure things, but for now I think it works. Im working on updating ERE and uploading my portfolio to this site as I have got rid of embds.com. I will go more into depth on the updates of this site within the next Captains Log.

20181114_162645

I have been racking up quite a bit of debt on some new fancy equipment and re-investing any other money into business, so it looks like I will remain at home base for the rest of the year, other than perhaps a few quick trips to indy, Nashville, and Florida, but we’ll see what happens.

As it goes for my personal instagram account where I share my art, I was just about to upload 3 awesome pieces I was working on, but would you believe it my PS crashed and I lost them, funny thing is, is that PS recovered some of the files… just not them. 😦 So thats a bummer, but I guess its back to the drawing board, hopefully I can upload some new stuff in the next few days. Go follow me for my awesome art!

We are still working hard on Artist Connect, its a very important project, please go check it out and lend your support, and tell your artist friends about them!

Other than that, I can’t tell you anything else, I got some projects and new art that I can’t wait to share, but I can’t just yet.. but the time will come.

Thanks for reading, thanks for the support, comment your links and ill support back!

Electric Daisy Carnival 2018 | Motor Speedway | Las Vegas, NV


20180517_202455

You know I had to go back to Las Vegas. What better reason than Electric Daisy Carnival? None. I decided soon after I got home from Life is Beautiful that I was going back for North America’s biggest dance festival.

I have been wanting to go to EDC for a very long time but each year it just hasn’t worked out. This year with my flexible work hours it worked out quite well 🙂 ! I had to bring Lindsey along with me, so that was a good time.

We decided to stay at the Stratosphere because I saw it the first time in Vegas, and I really wanted to do the sky jump, we’ll get to that later. Anyway, the stratosphere was a super nice hotel, the casino was nice and the bars were top notch, lol. Everyone else arriving that day was for EDC, we ended waiting in line for like an hour just to check in.

Once we got to our room we unloaded all our crap and started planning out what exactly we were going to do. We got there Thursday and the festival didn’t start until the Friday so we had a night to relax and check out the sights/food Vegas had to Offer.

We walked up and down the strip, checking out some really cool shops, ended up buying fucking clothes, smh. We checked out the bars, ran into a dam robot making drinks! Lol it was crazy, and that robot made a dam good drink, I tell you what! We checked out the hotels and casinos as well but we didn’t gamble really, we didn’t want to lose all our money the first night.

We did stumble upon, Johnny Rockets, inside The Flamingo, and wholy shit am I glad we did. That place is bomb, and I’m not gonna lie, we both love In-N-Out Burger but we both think we may like Johnny Rocket’s More! If you can believe it!? It was that good, I’m not gonna try to even come up with the words again, it was hard enough the first time when I left them this Awesome Review!

We went to The Hard Rock Cafe Casino/Venue, totally saw DJ Khalid on our way in and it was super crazy, only because no one else really noticed him. I’ve seen famous artists before and its crazy but for some reason its even crazier when your the only one that notices them, he was low key af, I would have talked to him but he was on the phone, perhaps thats why no one else was bothering him lol. I bet he does that to move thru a crowd, he skirted off in a mini van with like 8 doods, weird as shit and super crazy that I had to make a video of it. Lindsey didn’t even notice him, but the funny thing is was she was trying to take a picture of the sign above the doorway and totally snapped a pic of him by accident, everything but him is blurry in the picture lmao!

Of course we had to check out the legendary fountain. I thought it was gonna be lame and overrated but dam was that a badass fountain lol. It shot like 60 feet in the air and it had crazy lights and the lights and fountain were synced with some jamming music, it was pretty tight, I wasn’t expecting all that. I just thought it was a fountain that shot up like 15 feet every so often, that shit was a show in its self lol.

After we checked out the strip and all that good stuff we headed back to our room to get a lil rest before the festival started. We woke up a lil early and moved our chill sesh up to the pool where the tunes were on point, I was pulling soundhound out for literally every song lol. The pool was on the roof and it had really cool chill spots and a pretty sick bar, and you already know the view was stellar. It was crazy how many people were in Vegas for EDC, almost everyone up chilling at the pool was going. Met a lot of cool people.

First Night of EDC

Getting to EDC was a journey all in its self, the traffic was way crazier than I had even imagined, but once we got out our uber and headed to the line, we got in fairly quickly, and the security checkpoint was a breeze, didn’t really check out bags, barely a pat down, so that was nice, made the lines move very quickly. Once we walked up the ramp and got eyesight over the hill, the electric sky was revealed to us, literally one of the craziest-cool looking things I have ever seen, it was like a living organism I cant even describe how much shit was going on.

The lineup was seriously stacked for all three days, which was awesome because I had to buy tickets for this festival before the lineup even dropped, so I was worried, but in the end I was not disappointed.

The first night the people I had to see were; Lauren Lane, JOYRYDE, Mike Will Made-it, Kaskade, Chevvy Chase, Diplo, Borgore, Excision. We saw them all and they all killed it, we saw some other people through the night but I don’t remember the names. Throughout all of this amazing music, we were constantly stumbling upon something new and crazy, it was so fascinating to see how much work they put into this festival. It was so big and awesome that the moment I walked in I got a little sad that it only lasted 3 days, lol. There was a lot of really cool and nice people, like usual, always nice leaving “real life” where you usually have to deal with asswholes, and go hand out with a bunch of awesome like minded people, always a good time!

There was a shit ton of people here, I knew it was North America’s biggest dance festival but I had no idea it was going to be as crazy as it was, and that was only Friday, the least busiest day of the festival. It was crazy, but the crowd was so awesome and their was nothing but good vibes, there was only one show that the crowd was shit, I’ll cover that when we get to the third night, but other than the 1 show, the crowd was really crazy. I’ve been to a lot of festivals, concerts, and shows, but I have never been to a festival (Biggest One in my Country) where you could get literally right up front and have 3-5ft all the way around you to dance, it was amazing, everybody was with it, usually its cramped and you never have room to really dance if you get close, you all just kinda bounce together lol.

We smashed on the food pretty quick, it was like we were trying to taste every option the first night. I will say my all time favorite food truck there was called Burgerfest, I got some BBQ Bacon burger, good this may have been the best burger I have ever eaten, I should really find them online and leave them a good review lol.

After we ate everything in the place we headed back to try and get some rest before the next onslaught of epicness.

Second Night of EDC

We walked around and tried to experience everything we missed the first night, I think you could be there a week before you saw half the shit there. There were some really cool light installations that we were chilling in and we met some cool people that we kicked it with for awhile, I believe they were from Indiana as well, small world. We saw; Moksi, Strange Club, Detlef, Space Jesus, Toneshifterz, Tiga, Kygo, Hardwell, Tiesto, Armin Van Buuren, Zeds Dead, NGHTMRE, Cheat Codes, and various others throughout the night. Everyone I just listed straight killed it, kygo and tiesto back to back was epic then they did a set together, shit was insane. Kygo is becoming a quick favorite of mine. It was my first time seeing toneshifterz, I thought they were pretty sick. This was my second time seeing cheat codes, there dope as hell. I don’t even remember the ride back to the hotel that night, I passed out the second we got in our uber, good thing too cuz the traffic was ridiculous!

20180520_213528

Third Night of EDC

The third night was, excuse my language, FUCKIN INSANE, I’ve never seen so many people in my life. I thought the first few nights there were a shit ton of people, but the last night was like double that. I wish I would have taken a video of what it was like, we were moving in huge herds, everyone just pushing forward to get to the next show, it was the craziest thing. If someone would have tripped their poor souls would have been trampled. The third night we found out post Malone was gonna be there lol so we were like shit we gotta see him. We were actually seeing Big Wild at the same stage right before hand so it worked out perfect. Big Wild was insane, I Hope I have videos of him straight killing it, he’s insane! Then post was next and the crowd started to shift, we got a good spot but not too close. But it didn’t matter he drew a huge crowd, before we knew it we were packed tight as shit could barely move. And of course you had people just showing up trying to push there way to the front, which is fine if your cool about it but these people were asswholes pushing people and shit trying to fight, not a cool vibe, but still we stayed to see post. But that post malone crowd was definitely the only negative thing about EDC. We saw Borgeous, GRAVEDGR, Big Wild, Rezz, Headhunterz, Post Malone, Zedd, Tchami, Eric Prydz, Black Tiger Sex Machine, 1080p, Martin Garrix, Zomboy, Afrojack and others that night. They all killed it, my favorites were Big Wild and Headhunterz, such insane shows.

All in all, Electric Daisy Carnival was by far the most insane festivals Ive been to, I feel like I didn’t even get to experience it all, I don’t think theres anyway you could in that short amount of time, I might just have to go back.

Plus while EDC’s going on the have something called EDC Week where all the clubs and venues got sick shows and after parties, you could easily spend thousands on tickets alone.

So much to do, for anyone thats never gone, I would highly recommend going! Totally worth the money!

The picture above is a french toast breakfast sandwich and is was dope. go get it. at roxys.

Captain’s Log: 001 |Recent Site Expansions

I have been so busy that I haven’t posted much other than posting about how I’m so busy I don’t have time to post lol. I’m trying to work better on time management but its hard when your doing so much. But I am working on a lot of great content for all my pillars. My content takes me a long time to create from start to finish due to my other responsibilities but content is coming along.

A few days ago I launched The Digital Outreach Program, its a landing page I set up that I can send people to when I see them falling victim to a scam. For now its focused on Facebook Scams because thats what I’m seeing heavily in the groups, but I will always be adding more scams to it.

Last night I launched the landing page for Evan Reviews Everything, a little side project I’ve been working on for fun, I like reviewing and giving recommendations because I love sharing great works of art with people who may otherwise not have seen it. I have a Facebook Page and a YouTube Channel set up as well.

I have another expansion planned for the site but thats down the road, gonna take a little more planning before I roll that project out.

Other than that I have been coding/designing/marketing my ass off for my clients. Check out my Facebook Page, Digital Clinic, for marketing tips, and download my ebook for a good introduction on how I make my money.

Much Love,

Evan.

Life as of Late | Busy, Busy, Busy.

Hello!

I have been busy! I am working on multiple projects at the moment, very excited about all of them, even more excited about being done with them and moving on to the next set.

I am working on some new pages for the site, I am launching my review page here within a few days, as well as updating my about page and my services page. I have been so busy working on other things, I haven’t been able to update this site as much, but I’ve been slowly working on all aspects and am super excited on the results I’m coming up with. Even more excited to share with everyone.

I have a new project that has top priority, titled “Project: Night Owl” super stoked on this opportunity, gonna keep this one under wraps until its complete which could take a few months, no worries I am documenting all the behind the scenes, should make for some awesome content.

I am working on putting together my EDC post, and editing together all of my footage, should make for a nice read.

I have a few Instagram accounts available for sale through my side hustle, CyberWorkz. Also, I am moving CyberWorkz into the Influencer game, I’ve been thinking about this for a while, I know so many people that can be influencers that don’t know anything about it. I have been wanting to take some people with the potential and guide them to influencer status. If you are interested you should DM me, I am working on a dedicated page for CyberWorkz that will be hosted on this page.

I am working on a lot of Graphic and Web Design projects for various clients, this has been taking most of my time, but no worries, everything is moving along.

Cant wait to finish up my current projects, its time, lol.

And Once Again, my ebooks are coming, there gonna be good, I want them to be truly unique and real, so I’m in no hurry!

Pretty Lights Live | The Fillmore | Detroit, MI


https://www.cidentertainment.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/10/PrettyLights_DetroitNYE_FBYoast.jpg

Seeing Pretty Lights Live at The Fillmore in Detroit was a last minute plan that me and Ryan threw together just in time. On our way up to Detroit we stoped in pokagon to go tabagogging with Ryan’s family, I didn’t even know what it was until we did it, it was a lot of fun though and Ryan got some sick footage with his GoPro. We continued on our journey to meet our friends Laura and GIRL and to get down to some pretty lights. We got to the Fillmore and had to wait in a decent line, it wouldn’t have been bad if it wasn’t so cold. What was crazy to me is that there were girls wearing short shorts and skirts and all this other crazy shit, it was too darn cold for that. The first night I had to accidentally sneak in a knife because I forgot to unclip it from my bet, I was worried they would find it and take it. But anyway we got inside and Pretty Lights began fairly quickly, we all danced our asses off and had a great time. It was nice getting away and spending such a good time with good friends, thats what life’s all about.

Nashville | Downtown, Nashville, TN

20171007_104240

Me and my Brother decided to go down to Nashville to see my Mom’s new house down there. She and my stepdad sure do have an eye when it comes to picking out awesome houses. Her place is stunning, in a wonderful area, and she has a pool as well as a awesome guesthouse with a hot tub, its a little slice of heaven. Her place is just outside of Nashville.

20171006_182312.jpg

We went out to explore Nashville with my family, it was a lot of fun, such an awesome city. Almost every bar had an upstairs deck area over looking the river which was a stunning view. The weekend we happened to be there, college races were going on the river so it just added to the scene, it was awesome. There were a lot of underground bars there too which I found very cool, we walked by the Coyote Ugly Saloon so of course we had to walk in there. And of course everyone in there was on the bar going crazy taking belly shots and that sort, I thought it was a good time but we didn’t stay long.

We walked in to a candy story down there and ran into Kelly Ann Conway, President Trump’s Campaign Manager, I was hoping to run into Reese Witherspoon, but I suppose it was kinda cool to see her in person, didn’t move me one bit though, but if I had ran into Reese Witherspoon that would have been a different story.

We pretty much went thru every bar, and I gotta say they were all really cool, all of them had country themes and had a lot of nice wooden furniture and nice lighting, and seemed like a good atmosphere and nice people in each bar we went to. I really want to go back and have a drink at night on one of those rooftops, sounds like a good time.

We went to a local spot down there, and for the life of me I cant remember the name, all I know is I got some pulled pork from there and it was amazing, not the best I ever had but some of the best, and they had a nice selection of sauces there. Ill have to edit this later once I ask my Mother the name of that Restaurant.

We enjoyed some Budweisers while we swam in the pool and relaxed in the hot tub while catching up with our mom and step dad. It was such a nice area in their backyard, there were houses near by but it was very secluded with their tall plants and fence.

I gotta say I loved the Nashville area and can’t wait to go back.

Life is Beautiful 2017 | Downtown, Fremont | Las Vegas, NV


http://www.brooklynvegan.com/files/2017/04/lifeisbeautiful.jpg

Life is Beautiful was a very unique experience as it was my first time attending the festival as well as my first time being in Las Vegas, I had been there once before, but I was young so that doesn’t count, the only memory of that I have is Treasure Island lol. Anyway, Life is Beautiful had an amazing line-up, and after having to skip the amazing line-up that Camp Bisco had to offer I had to make it to Life Is Beautiful, I made all my arrangements months in advance and invited my friend Paige to come with me.

20170921_130138

I didn’t expect anything less when I found slot machines in the boarding area and throughout the airport, to be honest it seemed more like a casino than an airport. That might be a bit of an exaggeration but you get my point. I think I had to wait a while for Paige’s plane to land, I stopped in a bar and got a lil pregame in before we hit the town.

We took an uber from the airport to our hotel and driving into downtown Vegas was a treat, the place doesn’t even seem like a city, its more like a giant theme park, or at least that’s how It feels for me. We stayed at “The D” which was right down the street from the Life Is Beautiful Festival on Fremont. The hotel was super nice and their casino was nicely laid out, we didn’t walk away with millions but I do have a 0.05 voucher from that casino so you know, that’s something, lol.

20170925_014833

The first day of the festival was incredible, we had some tasty drinks and had some amazing food. Their were about 25 different food trucks their, each one a unique and delicious choice for any hungry belly. They had some really cool art displays, like the art motel and all these other buildings dedicated to art which had amazing pieces from artist all over.

20170922_153522

The people at this festival, like most other festivals, were all about peace and positive vibes, its so nice to get away and spend a week listening to awesome music with such like-minded people. We met a lot of people and I actually ended up talking to a news reporter and landed a interview with her and ended up on the news, lol. Paige got a video and you can see it online, I I have to download it before they delete it, we talked for ever, I really popped, but then they cut me up into like 15 seconds and make me look dumb, lol oh well.

20170922_154843

Through the three days of the festival we heard some amazing sets by Lorde, 2 Chains, Slightly Stoopid, Zeds Dead, Tchami, Big Gigantic, Kaskade, Wiz Khalifa, Schoolboy Q, Tycho, Lil Dicky, Gorillaz, The XX, Pretty Lights, MGMT, De La Soul, Vince Staples, Pusha T, Big Wild and a few others. Each performance was top notch, I loved every minute of it. Pretty Lights had the best set hands down, it was perhaps my favorite set I’ve seen of him and I’ve seen quite a few, the lights were on point. Another show that was sick was Slightly Stoopid, I’ve been wanting to see them for a very long time, and they did not disappoint.

The Festival grounds were littered with amazing art pieces, like this bear that was poly-art, it was super psychedelic and had amazing colors when lit up at night. There were super detailed murals on all of the walls, we were surrounded by such awesome art on all sides it was easy to get lost.

20170923_214742

All in all the festival was amazing and as long as they have a good line-up I would recommend going, it was money well spent.

Unfortunately we were only in Vegas for a few days for the festival so we had limited time to check out the entire city. I wanted to bungee jump off the needle down there but we didn’t have time. Another thing we wanted to check out was the pawn shop featured in Pawn Stars, but again ran out of time. One cool thing we did do, was go to a Criss Angel Show, and let me tell you that blew my freaking mind! If you are thinking about going I would say stop thinking and just do it!! Me and Paige walked out of there questioning reality, that’s how good it was, he’s incredible and I tip my hat, he really is the mind freak, lol. We also hit up the zip line on Fremont and that was really cool, it wasn’t too much money and I would say its worth it, plus you can buy pictures of yourself at the end, its a lot of fun, better try it.

We had a lot of fun going to Vegas, had a lot of of laughs, A LOT OF GOOD FOOD, met some cool people, lost some money but walked away with 4 cents, I plan on coming back for EDC 2018, so that’s a good time I look forward to.
