I’m putting on the spotlight this week my incredibly multi-talented (best friend and partner) Ethan Ribeiro!!!!
I first ran into this gifted Entrepreneur when I was helping assist with an event, and he shocked me in his responsibility, goals, plans, and situation management. As someone who always seems to find the bright side, his optimism and support makes him a valuable asset to any team, and his resolve and determination to accomplish what he’s set out to do continues to shine through in all he does.
His newest venture is restarting REMEDY, a stream that dedicates its revenue to charities!
Bio of Ethan Ribeiro
About me, I am what I like to call a purebred Entrepreneur, I am currently starting/running multiple companies and brands. Born and raised in beautiful BC. I am very thankful to be where I am. Vancouver being such a diverse city, it sparks so many amazing opportunities. Growing up I always preached “Pursue your passion” or “Chase your dream” I do believe with the right amount of hard work and passion you can get yourself to where you want to be doing the things you love. That’s why I run many companies/brands and do many things, and know I can because I am doing what I am truly passionate about and love doing. One Company I run is ER Studios, a company I am currently in the process of launching, to help the Independent community in the film industry. Another Company I run is True Sound Events, an events company that hosts EDM type events across BC, mainly Vancouver. This is focused on bringing high quality sound and making every experience a memorable one. We also focus on helping artists grow and helping showcase their talent. In addition to True Sound Events, I also run True Sound Records, our record label and recently announced True Sound Radio. Me being the marketing and film geek, I also working on creating a company called Red-Line Media, a media company focusing on small businesses growth by helping curate high quality content and creating their strong online presence. Now aside from that I have many other business ventures I have been working on and many other talents and experiences I’d love to share, however since I can’t fit it into this bio of myself feel free to follow me on my personal brand Ethanrjourney where I document my day to day journey on creating and growing my businesses andbrands.

In a times like these, with the pandemic raging across the globe, many are looking high and low for a cure, however as fake news runs rampant and fear surrounds, many long for something to ease their mind and soul. They need…..a REMEDY!!!
On February 20th 2021, True Sound Events is once again bringing forward REMEDY!! For those of you who saw the streams when the pandemic hit last spring, they were some of the first streams to take advantage of bringing the world together with music! They ran streams every day for almost a month, supporting charities with each stream, and are now bringing it back on a monthly basis!
Keep an eye on their socials for more details, looking forward to the new music they will showcasing in this revamp! See below for a playlist of the original Remedy Show!

I’m putting on the spotlight this week my incredibly multi-talented friend Joe!!!
Now this isn’t your normal everyday average Joe, this Joe is Joe EVERYMAN – EVERYDAY! IMO, Joe is a model for every man, everyday, who faithfully has been true to himself and his passions, mentors the younger generation of nerds and geeks around him, and faithfully supports his fellow creators!
I first ran into this talented Artist when I went to my first official con, the KFX about 5 years ago, (I believe it was their first ever one), and have bumped into him several times since. However, I didn’t get to know how truly awesome he was until we participated together in the Vernon Winter parade in early 2020! Him and his awesome sauce wife put on their stellar costumes and paraded around with us putting smiles on many a face! He then proceeded to take my card and like my streaming profile, and has been putting smiles on my face on a regular basis, supporting my work and encouraging me to do more!! He is my first Twitch subscriber and Patron, and I thank him for it as much as I can!!!!
He has promised to start streaming sometime next year, and I look forward to watching and assisting his platform growth!!
To check out his art, check out his excellent DND pieces, admire his cosplays or to see what an above average Joe is up to, click below!
(The featured image in this post is a drawing in his perspective as what he looks like!)
I’m putting on the spotlight this week my incredible film maker & cosplayer friend Unproductiveworkshop!!! I first met him at Anime Revolution 2019, he was dressed as Izuku Midoriya, a bundle of fun, energy and smiles!
I’m putting on the spotlight this week SPID…—I mean IHopegood!
IHopegood is an emerging rap artist, who also dabbles in mixing. He does charity streams, creative youtube content, and has just released his new album ‘Redemption in a New Reality’. His videos include but are not limited to gameplays, skits, covers, reactions, vlogs, rants, reviews & commentaries.
When I first saw this movie, something finally clicked in my head – you can’t change them all, and it isn’t up to you to fix what another person thinks or is going through.
People have a responsibility to themselves to live a life not based on other’s happiness, and this film really puts that all into perspective. I left a situation which I realized was not in my power to repair, and moved on with life. As they say, change your perspective, change your life!
I really recommend checking out the rest of ‘Shining Light Studios’ and ‘ER Studios’ films, these guys have a way of putting together films which hit you in the soul – might be best to have a handkerchief on hand!
Thank you for changing my life, and hopefully others, for the better!
P.S. This film was shot in the greater Vancouver area, I recognize a few areas, do you?
I’m putting on the spotlight this week my incredible musician friend Jesus Cancino!!!When I first met Zeus, it was at BITF a few years back, there was a stage set up with all sorts of music equipment, and with his amazing guitar playing, we formed a band ‘Pillow Surfers’ and rocked out for HOURS!!
Canzino is a musician and live-looper residing in Vancouver, BC. Alternative Dance-Rock with a splash of Electronic Melodies; Canzino is always dabbling. Always looking for fresh beats! Years later, his musical talent keeps rising, his newest single out now, explaining the importance of eating your Broccoli’s!! #ranchitup Check it out now! Keep up the great work!!
I love meeting people at these events because they are so excited about what they have to share that it gets me excited TOO! I know this is a little late, but with no cons happening this year, it’s allowed me a little time to catch up on a few things such as uploading the content I snapped the last few years, updating my websites, being more faithful on social media and such like!
This Thursday, I’d like to highlight Summer 2019 Ani-Revo, (otherwise known as Anime Revolution or AR!)
I went to the event as Ruby from RWBY, stoked to be at my first EVER AR!
I rode the skytrain in ensuring it was all clear of GRIMM!
One of the things I love about going to these events is meeting all the interesting and talented people here! This event allowed me to make some wonderful connections, such as a young film maker and cosplayer dressed as Midoriya who recently featured me in a video at this event, check that out here:
Astrid and Hiccup are going to teach me how to train a dragon:
Kim Possible, Shego, Ron and Dr. Drakken!
Ladybug & Cat Noir mashup!
My sis again! Stood up at the altar I’m afraid so she’s a little FIRED UP!
Now here’s a story that really only comes from going to events like these! Met these amazing peeps as they wandered around with a Jukebox singing ‘I WANT IT THAT WAY’ OVER AND OVER AND OVER AGAIN I COULDN’T STOP LAUGHING AND SINGING ALONG!!! Still to this day, t.c._c0splay5 and I chat on a regular basis, and he tunes into my streams every week, and we reminisce and look forward to the next time that all of us WEEB AVENGERS will unite once again!
Met MASTER CHEF!
The video below really only catches the tail end of an example of some of the shenanigans we get up to at these events!
It’s also where I met my fearless Twitch Team Leader ‘SPOC‘ who has been using my platform to promote other streamers with common interests while I’m not streaming. Be sure to check out his stream and follow/subscribe!
And on the way out I ran into Jon!!!!
I really enjoyed the time I spent with my new and old nerd friends, I hope to see you again next year!! MUCH LOVE!!!
