New Podcast Announcement and Contest

Greetings my awesome readers! It has been awhile since I’ve written anything, and the reason is because I’ve been growing my Club Kayfabe Creative Community with more content. Whether it’s our official blog, the CK Journal, getting new readers (please subscribe), or our new YouTube channel adding new content, I’ve been keeping myself busy (other than my full time job and personal life of course). As part of the CKCC, I plan to launch a brand new podcast I will be hosting, where i basically talk about and review anything under the sun.

What will I discuss? Anything I want. Movies, books, TV shows, video games, albums, sporting events including wrestling shows and UFC PPVs, basically whatever I feel like discussing. Now here’s the kick, I won’t be doing this alone. Every topic I cover will be picked by my listeners and followers, and then discussed by a panel of people who want to discuss the topic. It will be highly interactive in that regard. I will also force the length of the show to remain under one hour. That will be part of the appeal. I enjoy podcasting, but I hate when shows go in excess of two hours. I can’t just sit and listen to a two-four hour show. So that will be part of the appeal too.

Like I said, I’ll cover anything that I fancy, with a few exceptions. There will be NO politics, religion, world issues, or hate speech on the show. Same rule I have with the community as a whole. I’m not looking to start a war or change people’s fundamental beliefs. But anything else people want to request is up for grabs.

I want some of the topics to be interesting and less straight up review. For example, instead of reviewing the Star Wars prequels, the topic will be set up as a defense of them and why they’re good (a fact I believe in). I’ll discuss other movies as a series, and TV shows either by season or by factors for episodes. I’ll review new stuff and old stuff, as long as I have access to watch/read/play/listen to it, and can find at least one other person to join me.

Now let’s discuss the title contest. I am terrible at coming up with titles for anything. When I do my wrestling podcast, Club Kayfabe WrestleTalk, I always choose a title based on something funny we said during the episode. Coming up with something on the fly just isn’t me. So this is where you come in! Help me come up with a title for my new show, and the winning title (or the title that inspires me to think of something) that is given to me, that person gets the honor of coming up with my first subject and possibly being my guest on that show.

I want the title to be something that can potentially reference the one hour time limit, broad topics, or just a plain good I’ll’ reference to something I’m passionate about (wrestling, the Simpsons, Rick & Morty, etc). So leave them in the comments, either in here or on special media!

I’m looking forward to this new show, and hope to have the first episode recorded and published on the CKCC YouTube channel by months end. Good luck and thank you all for your continued support!

By the way, the community is always looking for new bloggers, content creators, podcasters, and artists…so let me know if you want to join the family!

See you really soon!

-Chris O’Mealy, CKCC founder.

Post-Birthday Updates

Hello everybody! I just wanted to give you a couple of updates. Things are progressing kind of slowly right now, but I still have big plans for 2018.

Due to my ever increasing busy schedule, I’ve decided to forgo any plans for a 12 days of Christmas project. At least this year. My focus right now is to get my Disney project done, and I want that completed by the end of the year. Trying to tackle a second project right now would distract me too much. So at least this year there will be no Christmas project. This way I can focus all my effort on writing my Disney blog.

So how is that blog going? Well every time I get time to write I end up struggling. Mostly because I’m trying to perfect everything I’m writing the very first time out. This is causing me to go back, reread everything I’ve written, get annoyed at my overusage of the same words, and edit preventing me from getting any further. Because that’s holding me up so much, I decided to simply ignore my editing for now, and plowed through the project getting everything written out. I’ll then go back and edit once everything is done. It’s one of my flaws being a perfectionist, and I’ve put so much pressure on myself for this project that it’s probably going to disappoint me at the very least. But since people really want to see it I’m just going to get it done and let it be.

There may be a handful of other small blogs that may pop up by the end of the year. I put a few ideas together and started one or two just for fun, like a ranking of Rick and Morty season one. Whether or not that will be out by the end of the year I’m not sure, but I have more stuff like that planned.

Now for the big question: what’s happening in 2018? I have some big plans, and here they are.

365 DAYS OF MUSIC: THE ULTIMATE COUNTDOWN. On New Year’s eve I’m going to launch a blog that will list out my favorite songs of all time. 365 of them to be exact! And I will add one every calendar day of 2018. This is a project I’m really looking forward to and was inspired by my friend Jeff. His project was a tad different as he listed all of his songs based on how many times he’s played them. While I’m taking that into consideration, I am going to list them out in a preference order. You may be surprised as to what pops up on this list. Then again you may not! Look for that on December 31, and to be edited daily in 2018!

MY 100 FAVORITE MOVIES. I’ve put this off long enough and people really want to see it. So next year you’re going to get it: my 100 favorite movies of all time! You may be surprised as to what shows up on this list too, but then again if you know me, there won’t be any real shockers. I making the official cut off for this list the end of this calendar year, so even if I see a blockbuster in 2018 that blows me away, it won’t make that list. That was a huge snag putting the project off the first time. New movies were getting added before I could even finish the countdown. So this time we’re just gonna do it.

THE SUPER NINTENDO PROJECT. More details to come later, but I’m going to play in rank every single game in the Super Nintendo library, at least in North America. I’m enlisting my friend and podcast partner Dan to help, and there may also be a video series to accompany.

WRESTLING ARTICLES FROM VERACITY MOVED HERE. My writing gig for Veracity has reached a stall.  The man who runs the website is simply too busy to keep up with it right now, so in the meantime I’m going to move my wrestling articles here. I have a lot I’ve wanted to say, especially with Paige’s return last night, so I’ll use my own blog as a forum for the time being. I’m not sure if I’ll do them weekly, but I’ll make sure to keep them going. That means I’ll also keep up with the Q&A. Hey Chevon, I’ll answer your questions again!

Last and most importantly, THE CKCC REBOOT. My website side project REALLY took a backseat this year due to my schedule, but I’m determined to get it back on track in 2018. This is very important to me, as I have big plans for the website and the community, I may need some help with this one, but I have a community of friends who will happily assist. I also may need a website editor. Not sure on that one yet.

hopefully this is the last update! I will go for the Disney project and maybe something else to close out the year, and then hit 2018 full speed ahead. You ready? I’m ready! Let’s do this!

I also used text-to-speech for a majority of this so please excuse the poor spelling and grammar in places.
