Don’t Get It Twisted | Political Nonsense

Addressing messages and comments I have received since pointing out media bias on the DC Riots.

I see everyone getting what I and other have said SO twisted. Its not surprising, there’s not much critical thinking left, or maybe their doing it purposely to try and fit a narrative that supports their arguments. I’m going to break it down.

We are not condoning the behavior of the terrorists in whats being referred to as “The DC Riots”. In fact if you looked at any Right Reporting News publications, the vast majority of the right were calling these people the same names they called the BLM terrorists; thugs, despicable human beings, terrorists, etc.

A STARK CONTRAST, to what we saw from left reporting news publications calling the riots “protests” and “mostly peaceful” as private businesses burned in the background. It wasn’t until months of this going on and it was hurting Joe in polls that he came out and said he didn’t agree with what was going on. Months, meanwhile the right is condemning these actions as they are happening.

So as I take my time to point out the hypocrisy of both sides, I have to focus on whose being hypocritical at the moment, which is overwhelming the left side. The right is not changing how they feel or talk about violent protestors, aka terrorists, the left is. Only because they are now trump supporters.

We agree with you guys 100%, we are just wondering where the fuck you were during the 6 months of riots and private businesses burning to the ground, it would have been nice for you guys to be as vocal as you are now back then.

I and others are not comparing this to the BLM riots, we are comparing the coverage of the two events, we are simply pointing out your inconsistencies, and the fact you fail to acknowledge they even exists is a huge problem. This is just another example in a long line of examples showcasing what I’m speaking about.

If you cannot see the threat that this poses, then as Kenobi said, we are lost.

Captains Log 011: 2021 Gonna Be The Year

I have a lot of things planned for next year, and if the coronavirus chills the fuck out, imma have a lot a lot coming out in 2021, its gonna be my busiest year yet.

Artist Connect is back up and running, I am working hard on getting black book going the way I want it, its going to take time.

Evan Reviews Everything has been uploading some videos exclusively to Facebook first for at least a day and then uploaded to my Dopely Diverse Youtube Channel a few days later.

I am working on the 2021 face lift for the ERE page as well as other pages, expect new stuff!

I have been picking up clients more and more so I been busy behind the scenes without producing as much as my own content as I would like to. But hey if we making money, we happy, lol.

We just dropped more merchandise in the all the shops; ex, ex, ex.

I have so much in the pipeline that I cant wait to share.

Peace and much love in these worrisome times.

Reporting in after the coronavirus lockdown

2020 has been one hell of a ride, and it’s not even over yet, but soon my friends. As with everything, this too shall pass.

I remember at the beginning of the year I had so many things I wanted to do, traveling, new food spots, festivals, all sorts of things, and then coronavirus came and shit all over that for me and everyone else.

So since march I’ve held my head down, rarely left my house, got a little fatter, enjoyed some awesome new shows, tidy some files up, continued on client work, got new clients, played video games, and organized the studio with some new upgrades.

Not too much has changed for me, working from home is a luxury that I appreciate everyday, but even more so in all of this coronavirus nonsense. But I hate that everything is closed down, nothing to do but keep your head down and get some work done, what ever that may be.

I been trying to get back into everything of sorts lol. Been drawing more, ive been working on more abstract digital artwork again which I have always loved but took a bit of a break from it.

Im starting to write more even if it wasn’t evident from this blog, working on a few new stories and creative projects, but take this post as a sign of more to come thanks to me taking a few extra min to sit down and write.

Starting to write scenes for a cartoon I want to eventually create. Who knows when that will come to fruition, could be some time.

I just posted a new episode of the podcast to the YouTube channel, New videos are always being uploaded so make sure you subscribe to the page so you dont miss anything!

I will be updating the Evan reviews everything page very soon, as well as uploading the new reviews you can only find on Facebook right now to the YouTube page.

As always lots happening working on lots in the background, trying to get artist connect back up and running, really need to push for it. Had some set backs when I tried to laugh blackbook, I think I need to take it back to the roots for now until I figure out how to deal with all the spam users. stay tuned for that.

As always stay tuned for everything, thanks for following, thanks for reading, evdog out.

2020 IS A BUST

008

I just realized there hasn’t been a new post on here for a while, and when I come to check when the last CAPTAINS LOG I typed out was at the beginning of 2020, and my oh my, how much optimism I had for this year.

By now, we all know this year is a bust. Dont get me wrong, its perfect for me, I work from home anyway, but still, everything cancelled and shutdown, it really blows.

Ive pretty much wrapped up this whole year as a bust.

But again, I suppose its nice to have this time to hunker down and get shit done on my super long checklist.

Ive been slowly and steadily upgrading my studio, once the next few items come in ill be done with the upgrades for this year so I will make a 2021 Studio Walkthrough video even though the year isn’t over.

I haven’t been able to crank out many EVAN REVIEWS EVERYTHING cuz as we have stated everything is closed down! It really sucks, I want some food!! I will be updating the EVAN REVIEWS EVERYTHING homepage very soon here…

More content is constantly coming to the YouTube channel, make sure you are following me there!

Ive updated a few pages around here, my twitch portfolio for one, go check it out!

In the meantime, im working on all my content, and my sites, including this one, getting ready to revamp ARTIST CONNECT, cant wait!

Stay Tuned,

Evan Beale

Captain’s Log: 006 – Restructuring for 2020

Trying to get back on schedule, I’ve been working on so many different things that my time management sort of went out the window. I’ve been restructuring the framework of all my brands yet again, and sort of rethinking what all my brands mean and stand for… in the beginning I sort of published everything together. Then I was afraid of diluting one brands image with another. So I split everything up, created separate pages, websites, and social medias for all these brands.

It was nice keeping everything organized but posting and trying to maintain so many different channels, and grow them, much harder than if you were to just focus on one. I’ve kind of come to the conclusion that I don’t need to split my content into niches and keep them separated. I am the niche. If people have a problem with any content I create, thats their problem. I create content on a wide array of different subjects, that’s what I love to do. Im not going to worry anymore about whether or not one category of my content will turn people away from another category of my content.

To further clarify just to paint the picture, I create content about marketing and helpful tutorials, and other things that may not mesh well with other areas of my content, like Dopely Diverse, my umbrella company in which I publish all my creative outlets under. There lies another example, if your a frequent user of this site, you for sure know I create content around marketing, but you may have never heard of Dopely Diverse. That wasn’t by accident. I tried keeping any brand one could see as “counter-culture” far away from my brands that reside in a more corporate and professional setting.

But to me you can be professional, and real, and the real ones see that, and thats the only people I want to work with anyway, you know what I mean?

So what does this mean?

As far as social media goes, for youtube, I will be moving the Evan Review’s Everything, Digital Clinic, and Escaping Finlandia Youtube Channels and all the respected content over to the Dopely Diverse youtube page and that is where all future content will be posted.

As for Instagram, Content for the brands listed above will now be posted on Dopely Diverse’s Instagram page.

As for Facebook Pages, All brands will keep their individual pages with Dopely Diverse facebook page reposting most of the content from individual pages.

As for the site, much more content will be posted to this site, which is what Ive always wanted, more of everything I do, no censoring, thats why I bought the url: evansworld.digital cuz thats what this site it. Its not just escaping Finlandia anymore, which originally started as a travel blog and grew into all of this. I just love to document everything I do and I know I would regret having to look back at this period and not doing exactly what I wanted for some fear of dumb shit I shouldn’t be worried about in the first place.

This sites gonna go from 100% real to 500% real. Just wait. 2020 Gonna be an amazing year!

Captain’s Log: 004 – It’s Been One Month

Hello Hello.

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.

Thank you Thank you.

Which Fyre Festival Documentary is Better? Netflix or Hulu? | 2 Sides to every Story | Evan Reviews Everything

If somehow you missed the fiasco which was Fyre Festival when it originally happened back in 2007, I’m sure you have heard about it more in great detail this past week with the release of 2 documentaries, a Netflix Documentary called “Fyre: The Greatest Party that Never Happened” and a Hulu Documentary called “Fyre Fruad”.

We all had a laugh at rich millennial’s expense back in 2007 when they quickly realized their THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS luxurious getaway to Pablo’s Oscobar’s island for fine cuisine and top of the line musical performances with beautiful models and influencers was actually a SCAM. It was a huge cultural moment and dominated the social feeds with countless viral videos, pictures, and memes all poking fun at the “poor” rich kids.

As a festival goer I could perhaps feel bad for some of these people, but to me, these are the same kind of people(for the most part) that go to Coachella, because its fucking Coachella, they don’t go for the experience or music, they just want an instagram picture there and to be able to say they were there.

That being said, there are a lot of people to feel sorry for in this story. The locals of Exuma Point that were never paid, Fyre Fest staff never paid, Maryann Rolle who spent 50,000 of her personal savings to cater to the attendees and staff, Fyre Media Staff left with debt on personal cards, investors being lied to and losing millions and countless more.

So which one would I say is better and recommend?

Well both. For different reasons. I think you should watch both to get both perspectives.

The Netflix Documentary
  • Features alot of exclusive behind the scenes footage of the early stages of shitty planning leading up to the epic failure of Fyre.
  • Includes interviews from previous Fyre Team Members and people from Exuma Point that were directly affected.
  • The build up of hype for the influencers just to see that change so quickly is priceless
The Hulu Documentary
  • Goes more into depth about the leading up to Fyre Fest, as well as an interesting look at financial specifics in which Billy was committing criminal offenses.
  • Includes interviews from an (ex) Jerry Media Employee that is quite a revealing look into the Media Company’s role in all of this, as well an interview from previous employees of Billy Macfarland, as well as an interview from Billy Macfarland himself.
  • With the Interview from Billy, he is asked some real legitimate questions about the fraud he was committing and the look on his face/delayed response really expose this POS as a pathological liar.
  • This documentary call’s Jerry Media out for their involvement, the statements made by the ex-employee paint a different picture than that painted by Jerry Media in the Netflix Doc(I wonder why? See below)

Things I don’t like about these Documentaries

The Netflix Documentary
  • This documentary was produced by Jerry Media, and while they don’t paint themselves to be saints, they try to neglect some of the responsibility by putting it on the Fyre Team.
The Hulu Documentary
  • Hulu paid Billy Macfarland for his interview.

My final thoughts on Billy,

He is not remorseful and he doesn’t see anything wrong in the things he has done. Doods a POS. The whole thing was a scam from the get go. And he knew it.

the worst thing about these fyre fest documentaries is that the very scammers responsible for Fyre Fest are profiting from them.

#FUCKfuckjerry

Its all very interesting from a marketing stand point. The whole story is a testament to how powerful influencer marketing really is.

I wonder how many brands will want to partner with Jerry Media after this. In the netflix doc (that they produced) they laid it all on the FYRE team, which when i watched at first I believed them because i have had clients like they were describing the Fyre team to be.

Then after watching Hulu’s it became apparent that they knew much more than they led on in their doc.

If my agency was marketing something like this and we started to figure out what was going on/being asked to filter negative comments, I would have backed out and told the public exactly why.

They were posting up until the day of… trust me those fuckers knew, they should have did what was right but it seems like they thought they were going to be the exception when it came to getting paid. Which they weren’t, so now they can play victim too! oh and they can also donate to the go fund me page to try and save some face.

if they really felt that bad, why not reach out with that money to that lady sooner, why wait almost 2 years untill 2 documentaries make you look bad to give her back what is hers?

I bet if these documentaries were never made, they would have NEVER gave that woman money back.

The netflix documentary and them donating that money is PR STUNT, their way of saving face.

i would recommend watching both for different reasons though, each one features exclusive interviews, and you can better compare the conflicting talking points, and watching both gives you better insight over the whole story.

Just so crazy that something like this could happen the way it did. The power of influencer marketing is astounding.

So, Whats the take away?

The power of influencer marketing. Im a digital marketer so you know I was gonna go there! But seriously, how could they pull something like this off!? Well, all they had to do was make a bunch of influencers believe it was real and post about it. Thats about it lmao.

There is a GoFundMe for the lady who spent her life savings catering for the Staff and attendees.

Quick Tip: How To Approach Door 2 Door Sales as a Digital Marketer

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! 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

20181119_053626

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!
