Being Sick, Getting Better

TL;DR – Talking about Health, the Help Machine, and living publicly

The Help Machine is a company that wants to make a difference; as the founder, staying healthy, staying on track, and being transparent are part of my core values. I don’t know if other people feel embarrased about Ulcerative Collitis, but maybe if they do, they can see me talking about my embarrassing stuff and feel a little better about things. If you make continuous, constant improvement, and focus on staying steady, anything is possible!

Shortles 2: The Shortening!

TL;DR – Shortles is a way to organize the content for the new series, set some goals, and creating a daily habit of creating art.

I’m shaping Shortles into something I can produce week after week. It’s going slower than I like, partly due to some artist jitters, but mostly (like 95%) due to feeling run down. I gave myself 3 goals, to help focus me, and help me remember that my health will not, and cannot, stop me. Only I can stop me!

So, I’d rather not stop me. I’d rather say, “Hey me, let’s get to it!” Then I can, “Hey, you’re right!” And get to it. The thing I’m looking the most forward to are using Agile Scrum for Video production (a method I’m outlining that I think makes a lot of sense) and also learning a LOT about what can be done with portable, quality, simple video equipment.

What’s this post about?

  • Goal 1: Make Content Every Week!
  • Goal 2: Agile Scrum for Video Production!
  • Goal 3: Learn, Learn, and also Learn. In addition? Learn.

Bobidoo and Me going on hiatus (here’s why)

TL;DR – Fred Chong Rutherford expains why Bobidoo and Me went on hiatus

I really like the idea of Bobidoo and Me, and the overall big idea is good. But, my ability to execute this well isn’t quite there; I don’t have the musical capabilities, I’m not quite sure how to attract the right talent, and definitely need to gain some skill here. The skill problem isn’t just with the music, either; while Kwiddle and Bobidoo are certainly ready, Fulton isn’t. On top of that, my health is taking a turn for the worse again.

I feel bad, because it’s a good idea, and some talented folks have put in some helpful help to get us to a solid draft on a couple of scripts. But sometimes, when you see problems, you have to fix them. Ready on to learn more!

  • Problem: The music wasn’t very good
  • Problem: Fulton needs a new body
  • Problem: I got sick
