JOE – Everyman, Everyday

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!!

Artist Spotlight – Jeanot Kermode!

Hey all!

I’m putting on the spotlight this week my incredible musician friend Jeanot KERMODE!!! When I was first introduced to this talented artist, up until this point I had not met a musician as real and as humble as he. Specializing in Electronic, Bass and House, He still maintains this humbleness in his music, bringing forward a fresh new outlook in each track. On that note, he’s just released ‘Whip It‘, so what better excuse to check out his stuff!! Woohoo! Keep them tunes coming!!!!!

I’ve reached out to him for tracks to run while I’m gaming, which he graciously supplied but I’ve been slow getting them up to stream! I’ll tag them as #KERMODE so watch for and tune in for a treat!

September 2019 Exploration Update

Alrighty! September 2019 Exploration Update with SarahTonin

Special Guest Star – Raven from Teen Titans!  (Lucky to snag her before she headed off back to her room!)

HI I’m Raven, I just got back from Random Acts of Costuming, where we cheered up some kids and some people, I put on my best smile, and now without any further ado, here is SarahTonin’s Exploration Update for the Month of September. Teen Titans GO!

Shout out to Random Acts of Costuming, check them out on Facebook and follow them there, more on that next month.

Didn’t go many places, but we did make some delicious shish kabobs and had a corn feast, which if you see there, I’ve taken two slices of tomato and slathered them on the corn. (This to be done after normal condiments applied, butter, salt and pepper) That’s how you do it RIGHT!

Saw this spectacular sunrise, peeking out from behind a fire hydrant.

Snapped a few shots of this excellent sunset on the way back from Vernon

Went camping, made some camp food! Yes, Omelets ARE camp food.

And there’s some power lines…

(Further) Construction on St. Paul’s

Corn Chowder! (Recipe to follow!)

The September full moon illuminated by the light of a Polar Bear!

And lights on Bernard!

Put out How to Make a Cape with Ruby

Finished my Peter Kelamis Goku Montage! (To support my work click here!)

Got some AWESOME socks at Hot Topic on Sale!

Sliced up some crab apples to make tea! Figured out a neat way of cutting them, so it doesn’t take you ALL day!

Early morning hours on Bernard; and facing the other direction

Making some Banana Bread!

Whooh – Made some egg whites you could that you could stand up straight, I made a beautiful peach meringue pie… 🙂

There’s our banana bread!

Peach meringue pie!

And these lovely ladies, that were helping with raise a reader downtown by the Capital New Centre.

Kelowna just waking up in the morning!

A peaceful, quiet Bernard Morning-GREEN LIGHT!

And a cute little mushroom glen!

Also helped raise awareness for Orange Shirt Day, check that out Online.

And I thought I’d end it on a funny note. Why can’t you Trust an Artist? Because….They’re Shady! They’re Sketchy! AND they might try to Frame you! Have a great week guys and hopefully I’ll  explore way more things this month however as the winter months set in, I tend to bunker down and hibernate…and wait for the cold to go away! So you may see me venture out, once in a while, but expect to see more updates in regards to Tutorials, and other such likes! Stay Tuned!
