It is no secret, that I added more than a few pounds to the old whiskey gut over the winter. Now that it has been getting nicer out, I was going to make it a point to get back into skateboarding, maybe start exercising and working out. I’ve been putting the ladder off for some time now. I am not sure if that was on purpose or not, perhaps I let the whole whiskey gut joke go on too long? These are the questions I am now left with.
Anyhow, the day before I was going to start I had an unfortunate accident. The day before, my sober ass mind you, not drunk, completely sober, falls down the stairs and breaks my toes. Fucked them up real good. So was it a sign that I should maybe just keep on keeping on the way I have been? These are the questions I am now left with.
I decided to use this time as a sort of cheat period before I had even gotten started. Now I have an excuse to sit around and be lazy, stuff my face, drink some whiskey, and play video games. So no doubt, no matter how long this last, I’m sure to increase the whiskey gut a few inches out.
This downtime has given me some time to re-focus on some things around here, changes coming, new things coming, you know all that jazz.
Stay safe in this scary time, and don’t run down the stairs otherwise you’ll be fat like me. Thats the real lesson here.
Great movie, well done, good casting, its gonna be a yes from me dawg.
Man. I knew there was a reason I hated McDonalds. And no, its not just because they have THE SHITTIEST food in the fast food industry. But because of the “why” they have the shittiest food.
I never knew the story of McDonalds. But it’s one I’ve heard 1000 times. Piece of shit business/corporate man ruining the artistic vision of ones dreams.
This is a sad story… and again one that happens to many times in this world.. if you were like me and haven’t watched this yet and do not know the story ill fill you in (spoiler but its history so) Ray Kroc, a struggling and greedy businessman sees opportunity when he stumbles upon what he sees as the most revolutional restaurant in the industry, the real piece of art, the vision, crafted by 2 brothers who started with nothing but a dream. Long story short he ends up screwing them by making a ton of changes they don’t want as well as buying the land that the McDonalds are built on, making a huge profit.
In the end, the brothers sell their shares of the company to Kroc, but he has to screw them one last time by not including the royalties in the written contracts, instead he gave them his word that he would pay them. I would not have trusted him.
This dood robbed them. And I realize he’s dead and everything but I still see Mcdonalds as this evil corporation, because that’s what they are.
Too bad it couldn’t have been the Macdonalds brothers vision.
Everything they didn’t want to go wrong with their brand did because of Kroc, the quality fell, tremendously I assume by peoples reaction in this movie eating McDonalds from back in the day lol. Not everyone had their vision. Not everyone cared, look at the McDonalds of today, disgusting.
And because of that, IMO, McDonalds is the worst Fast Food Franchise out there, when if it stuck to the original vision is could be on the scale of in-and-out. Im sure McDonalds is bigger but quality is what matters and any person in their right mind would pick a in-and-out burger over McDonalds every day of the week.
Anyway, DONT EAT MCDONALDS!!! Thats My review on that.
BUT DO WATCH THE FOUNDER, GREAT MOVIE AND GREAT PERFORMANCE BY MICHAEL KEATON!
It’s been one month since I last posted? That can’t be right. But now that I think about it, it may very well be correct, lol. I wish I could be posting more here but as you guys know I am spread very thin, which usually isn’t too big a trouble, but lately I’ve been dealing with health issues, mainly my stomach, and now I’m on new medicine which seems to have more negative side effects. I’m trying to get healthy before anything because I’m just tired of feeling like this. Whats the point of doing anything if you feel like shit all the time??
And that’s exactly the boat I’m in, seems like my stomach problems, ocd and anxiety are just getting worse and worse and the doctors aren’t giving me what I need, but we will see. Anyway I’ll post more on that in a seperate lifestyle post, I have been wanting to write more about those things since there such a big part of my life…
As for the captains log, there has been new articles added since the last log, but as i stated above, they are a month old. But after this goes live I am also posting a new ERE review for the new movie Triple Frontier. Other than that, I have a few things planned for the sight and upgrades to my setup, but for now, I will announce those things as they go live.
I realized that I have not yet posted this comment to my site, so here it is, we were in a group talking about cold sales so I shared my technique as no one was talking about doing it this way, everyone was talking about walking door to door with there pad giving the same speech to business owners. I like my way better, you come to them not as a salesman, but as a customer who actually cares and wants to help. Ill expand more on this method in my new “Locally Grown” Project, but for now, read the comment below to hopefully receive some insights and value.
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.
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!
There are 3 colors of hats in this game; white, grey, and black.
White Hat Strategies
These are the strategies that us, real, honest marketers use. These strategies include any marketing efforts focused on content and bringing value to the audience. Proper SEO, amazing content, user focused, organic growth/management, while running paid ads.
Grey Hat Strategies
These strategies fall in between ethical practice(white) and unethical practice(black), a grey area if you will(hence the name). Sometimes a mixture of components from black hat and white hat marketing. Some may call it being less then honest. Purchasing emails from a third party, trying to lower competitions ranking, duplicating/spinning content, and many more would fall under this category.
Black Hat Strategies
These are the unethical strategies that horrible marketers and posers use to pump out quick results for clients to turn a quick profit, half the time the results are fake the other half the time those results are in danger of disappearing any second from being penalized by google. Black hat strategies include anything that you do specifically for the sole purpose of ranking higher in search engines.
So many things fall into this category, Private Blog Networks, Buying Engagement/followers, buying backlinks, buying data from third parties, scraping data, and many, many other things that if you try or try to provide for a client you will eventually be penalized and your site will essentially be dead.
Why You Shouldn’t Use Black Hat Marketing Strategies!
Reputation is everything in this game. Once you get outed as a Black Hat, its over. You Lose. Not only should you not want to do black hat strategies because it could kill yours or your clients site. But you shouldn’t want to implement these types of strategies because you shouldn’t want to be remembered as a piece of shit scumbag that scams people out of proper marketing so they can make a quick buck.
I see it everyday, people falling for all these scams, their buying fake engagement from a shady dood on facebook, then 20 min later posting how this guy ripped them off. BIG SURPRISE!
Please do not waste your money on fake engagement, there is literally NO VALUE for anyone doing that. Instead run your page the right way and use that money for good by running paid ads on facebook, you will be surprised what happens.
Funny and True Story If You Can Believe It!
Someone tried debating me on this issue. Citing a study that some one in Britain did claiming that if you run promotions on your page to get more likes you will find that you get fake/bots/ghost followers. So he said why would we waste money and time doing that when its the same thing.
First of all I am not talking about boosting your page for likes, I am talking about detailed-data oriented targeting implemented into specialized ad campaigns that drive conversions, thus leading to a increase in following and engagement.
Yes, sometimes even on ads you will get a FEW fake follows or likes, but the only reason that is, is because of black hat services like these in the first place. Second, would you rather spend some money and see high ROI, valuable growth, with maybe a FEW fake likes and follows, or would you rather buy fake engagement and have it ALL be worthless, no ROI, or any other black hat service your throwing your money away and potentially killing your site and wasting all your hard work and progress.
I told those same words to the guy, and he still went with fake engagement, I DO NOT UNDERSTAND HIS WAY OF THINKING. He wont last long at all!
How To Make Sure You’re Only Using White Hat!
Want to make sure you are always deploying white hat strategies? Its quite simple, stop posting for the search engines. Stop optimizing for the search engines. Post and Optimize for you audience. They come first, the rest will follow, I promise you. Focus on bringing others value, real honest value. Great things will happen. I’ve seen it time and time again.
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!
