Calling All Musicians!

Looking for Creative Commons Licensed music videos to share on my broadcast, the catch is that it has to be CC licensed, be original and you can't be listed with a performance rights society.

Interested?  Message me via riskybusiness04@gmail.com!

Computer Update

Well, kinda good news. They confirmed my issue with the new computer and it was covered under warranty. As I suspected it was an issue with the memory.

The bad? I don't expect to have the machine back in time for Sunday's show so while I can try a broadcast with my laptop past experience has told me that it's not going to go well so I don't know if I'm even gonna bother.

I'm thinking I might have to bag this week's show on iVlog.

But......

I'll be able to do the next one without worrying about a computer crash!

More Computer Problems...

Hopefully I can get this straightened out before Sunday but right now it's not looking good. My brand new (just bought last November) computer crashed. I think it's some kind of defect but whatever the case may be its not looking good for a show on Sunday.

Grrr, I bought a new computer just so I wouldn't have to go through this shit anymore.

Ready For Prime Time!

Sorry for the short notice, but I've decided that this week will be our premier on iVlog!

Join us starting at 9 pm (eastern) this Sunday night

Now that my personal life is starting to settle down I'll have more time to focus on the broadcast (woohoo!)

See above.  Also note that I will continue to keep my webs.com page online to do the occasional show for the musicians that I won't be including in the rotation for the show on iVlog

Official "Jack" Update

I've recently stepped down from the promotion that I took last fall, mostly because I was over my head with it as well as the fact that it was taking me away from certain things in my personal life and my life online.

So let this post serve as the official "I'm back" update as well as my apology to my friends online that I'm sorry that I haven't been around, but now I'll be online much more than I have been lately.

Thanks for the continued support, blog post about the future of the show coming up shortly.

Show Update June 2014

I made it official during the show this week, sometime over the next couple of weeks we're transitioning to iVlog.tv.

 

As I mentioned in the video the format of the show will change but I'm planning on keeping the page on webs.com online and do the "private reserve" show that I mentioned in the video.

More details to come.......

Happy Memorial Day!

Don't forget during the BBQ's and enjoying the company of friends and family the real reason this holiday exists and take the time to honor our friends in uniform, they deserve it.  It's also a great time to honor the fallen as well.  One of the things that I added to my bucket list a couple of years ago is at least one time I'd like to volunteer to help plant the flags that fly at every headstone Memorial Day weekend at the Veterans Cemetery.  It really is a breath taking sight to see.  I know not all of us have time to go volunteer at the VA, or at the local VFW, ect. but even something that wouldn't take much time like this is just as worthy.  Everyone is always saying they want to do more to honor our veterans, something like this honors them as well.

Stay tuned to this blog about future show updates, changes are coming.

May 2014 Update

First of all I'd like to thank everyone for the continued support.

Here are last week's stats which will be the focus of this blog update....

Summary


Mon Tues Wed Thur Fri Sat Sun Total Avg
Pageloads00000012122
Unique Visits00000010101
First Time Visits000000771
Returning Visits000000330





As you can see, while I'm just a guy doing his own show on his own site, these stats while not embarrassing since at least there was some traffic, they aren't great.

I have to make a decision which is either go Ivlog or shut down.

To be honest about it, I think we would do well on ivlog, the downside is that in order to do a show over there I'll have to go all CC formatted music which would leave off some of these guys that I've been playing for years.

I dunno to be honest, right now I could take the show in so many different ways.
