Over the past several months I have been working on a video project (well planning one). This idea came to me shortly after I went to the Motor City Comic Con (MCCC), last year. My idea was to interview several Michigan-based (mostly Metro-Detroit area) businesses, artists, and YouTubers for my vlogging channel. Sadly to say last year I did not have the proper set up to carry out my idea. This year, with the purchase of my Zoom H6, I am hoping to be able to do what I wanted to do last year.
On May 15, 16, & 17, 2015, will be this years MCCC, and I am planning a small gathering of YouTubers, artists, and anybody else that wishes to join, to meet me at MCCC (there is a cost to get in the door. Prices can be found here http://www.motorcitycomiccon.com/new-tix/). Going to work on interviewing the various venders and artists that will be there. At the moment I do not have all of the details worked out yet, but I am hoping to have that all worked out by the end of the month.

Motor City Comic Con is hosted at the Suburban Collection & Showplace in Novi MI. And there is usually a $5 parking fee.
I’m also going to create another blog post about my idea for interviewing Michigan-based businesses.
Thank you for reading,

Edit 3-04-2015: Here is my event post on facebook
I hope you had a good 2014, and I hope that 2015 will bring you happiness and prosperity.
My 2014 was not the best of years, but it also wasn’t the worst either.
For my 2015 I have a few plans.
- I am going to try to vlog more often on my vlogging channel. As well as being more consistent on all of my YouTube channels altogether.
- I am going to restart my “Tips for Starting a Computer Repair Business” series: some of them will be more advanced tips, but I plan to start with some basic ones, that most people don’t think of but will destroy most small businesses. (Even the non-technical businesses)
- I am going to throw out my learning C# series (I’m not going to delete any of my videos), instead I’m going to cover some of the more advanced techniques in both C# and C++. I will try to explain them as basic as I can.
- I am also going to start an entire series on DIY photography and videography projects.
I also have a few other plans that I am working on, but at the moment they are not ready to talk about.

Here is the results of the Cameras that some people used to start on YouTube.
This is a spreadsheet that I put together to show what was used. I made it to keep anonymity.
As was stated in my previous blog and a vlog. I am getting the zoom h6. I had announced that I was getting the bundle but now I am thinking about just the unit and using the extra money for a mic. At Comic Con I came up with the Idea to interview Detroit based businesses (as well as other artists) but I needed better Audio Equipment.

As some people know I have been keeping up with the Call Of Duty series for a wile now. And I am excited about the new Call of Duty: Ghost that is coming out later this year.
Today I watched the live reveal of the Multiplayer aspect of the game. And I must say that I am exited for its launch. Even if I cannot afford a copy on the first day. The ability to make a soldier instead of just a class is the biggest plus in my book. And to all my Female Voyage viewers out there you an even play a female character in the game.
They are dropping the number of air based kill streaks. I am not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, as I do tend to knock out the enemy UAV with a rocket launcher. I am excited to see more of the ground based drone that replaces the UAV.
They got rid of death streaks, that is a good thing.
The dynamic environments is a interesting thing that I noted. The fact that the environment can change is nothing really new to gamming, not even to the Call of Duty series of games. But the fact that you can change a area by blowing up a gas station does make a interesting change to the Call of Duty series.
I do like the new game modes:
- Cranked, where every kill makes you faster, but going longer then 30 seconds without a kill, will kill you.
- Search and Rescue, a lot like Search and Destroy,, where your team can revive you by picking up your tag or enemies can deny the revive by doing the same.
- Squads, where you and a squad compete against the AI or other players. I do not remember if your squad is other players or the AI.
I also like the fact that it will come out for both the PS3 and PS4 with the ability to transfer your Multiplayer across the the different generations of systems.
As I mentioned one month ago, I was considering accepting Bitcoin as a form of payment for my business. But Amy and I have decided that I will accept Bitcoin and also I will accept Litecoin as forms of payment for my business. Four Bitcoin I will use a merchant system, I am just unsure if I’ll use coin base or bit pay. As for litecoin I am going to use it as a form of donation currency through my YouTube videos and even website.
Why use Bitcoin as a form of payment?
I do not expect many of my customers to actually use Bitcoin, I do not even think that less than 1% of my customers will use Bitcoin at all, but I am hoping that I can use the acceptance of Bitcoin as a talking point. As I make out a flyer to hand out and to post places, I am anticipating that the phrase “I now accept Bitcoin” will be an eye catcher. I am also anticipating that my videos that I will make on Bitcoin and litecoin will garner some questions. I am also going to post the QR codes and address of my crypto-currency wallets on my blog and on my channel.
Why are you including Bitcoin and not litecoin as payment for services?
Simple, Bitcoin has merchant systems, and Litecoin does not, also as I am looking to simplify my business, I do not want to have to many different payment systems.
When will you post info on them?
I am anticipating that I will have my first deal up in the first week of August, with an accompanying blog post. Of course I will cover Bitcoin first.

Well I have to say that this headset works remarkably well with Dragon NaturallySpeaking.
I have tested it out into different areas of my computer, and I’m I have to admit that it is actually better than my old previous headset that I had before. as promised in the video, here is the link to where you can purchase my new headset.
If you purchase this headset from this link it would greatly help me out thank you.
