Mystery Incorporated is coming

a new scooby doo live action show is coming soon

I was pleasantly surprised when Dayeanne Hutton, an actor who I’ve been following for years, tweeted out that she and other people were working on a new show called Mystery Incorporated. Which is based on the Scooby Doo universe that we’ve all grown to love all these years.

I was excited. Not just because I think Dayeanne is an amazing actress (and highly underrated), but THEIR idea of a more dark take on Scooby Doo is something that peaks my interest.

At the end of this article I will link their Indiegogo where you can help donate. I will also link you to their Youtube channel where you can check out how cool this idea looks. I don’t feel comfortable stealing content that isn’t mine. It’s only fair that you head over to their channel and see for yourself why this could end up being amazing.

What is Mystery Incorporated? It’s going to be inspired by shows like Riverdale and Supernatural. Which is where the darker turn comes into play. A live action Scooby Doo isn’t exactly a new idea. However, that movie was a kids family movie. Which makes sense because Scooby Doo was always a kids show.

When I think of this version of Scooby Doo, I imagine a Sabrina The Teenage Witch vibe. Where you have a hugely popular kids show that gets transformed into something much darker, which gains even more popularity. Trying to make monsters feel real isn’t exactly an easy task. Sabrina showed us that it actually can be done well. I was skeptical before that show was released, but they proved me wrong. We could have a similar situation here. A dark take on a kids show could be awesome if done right.

After watching their video on Youtube, and hearing the director talk about Mystery Incorporated, it’s clear that he had a vision for what he wanted. I wasn’t hearing ‘This would be kinda cool” or “That might be cool to do”. He knew exactly the story he wanted to bring to life. He knew what he wanted the characters to be like.

I don’t know Dante Yore’s previous work, but he seems like a very good director. His confidence made me feel even better. How is an audience supposed to believe in something if the people behind it aren’t fully believing in it?

The cast choice for this show is really good. Chris Villain seems like he could be a really funny Shaggy. Jessica Chancellor as Daphne seems great. Dayeanne really brings out the annoying side of Velma. I never really thought about how annoying Velma would be if she was an actual person. Now I know. Dade Elza is what I can imagine a real Fred to be like. He’s a handsome dude, pretty gutsy, and it’s only a matter of time before him and Daphne hook up on the show. I’m calling it now.

Why Jenna Marbles is my favorite person ever

what makes jenna marbles a great person

Over the past week or so I’ve been making it a habit to go back and watch old videos of Jenna Marbles before I fall asleep. It’s sent me down a rabbit hole that I’ve been enjoying.

I have been a fan of Jenna Marbles for many years. I think it’s because she reminds me a lot of myself, but also it’s cause her content is just awesome. There are many reasons why I love Jenna Marbles more than anybody else on social media and I’m going to explain why in this article.

Growing and maturing. This is one of the main reasons I love her and it’s something that her and I have in common. If you go back and watch her really old videos you’ll notice that it’s a completely different Jenna. She’s loud, obnoxious, and honestly…kinda mean. Even if she never meant to be. Even Jenna herself has said this is why she hates going back to watch old videos of herself.

she used to think that swearing and offensive jokes were what people wanted to see. So she gave the people what they wanted. This is very similar to how I used to be. I used to be a much more offensive person, but over the years I’ve learned from past mistakes. I always talk about how I used to use the word gay as an insult to anyone I just didn’t like. Or even as a joke with my friends. I would never do that anymore because I’ve learned that it’s not okay to do that.

We learn from past mistakes and try to be better people. Not everyone is capable or even wants to do that. I worked very hard to change from the person I used to be. I didn’t want to be an angry, offensive, person anymore.

No clickbait. Again, this is something Jenna and I have in common which is why I respect this so much. It’s easy to clickbait just to get views. It’s easy to turn into a drama channel and use others for clout. Jenna has always stayed in her lane and did whatever she felt like doing. She doesn’t monetize her videos. She doesn’t start shit with anybody. She’s just a wholesome person making videos out of love.

It’s obvious that she doesn’t do it for views or money. This is much like me and I don’t see it a lot from people. Everyone clickbaits normally. People always tells me “If you do it this way you’ll get more views” or “If you do it this way you’ll get more money”. I don’t care about those. I do this for fun. Because I genuinely love what I do. This is the same mindset Jenna has that I appreciate. Especially from somebody who has a very large audience.

She’s as real as it gets. It’s easy to create an online persona for one reason or another. Jenna talks about real things and says exactly what is on her mind. When she makes a mistake she’ll apologize. 99% of Youtubers don’t know what an apology is because it’s so easy to hide behind a fake persona online. You never have to hold yourself accountable.

It wasn’t too long ago (maybe a few months) where Jenna apologized for reading other peoples Reddit stories. She wasn’t thinking about how these stories were from other people’s hard work. She didn’t wait until there was a backlash or wait until people called her out on it. She genuinely realized that making a video reading Reddit stories was still stealing from other people.

How many people do you know online that steal content? Reaction videos. Blogs with stolen pictures. People rarely apologize. It’s nice that Jenna actually thinks about other people before herself. This is what makes her an awesome person.

The best part about Jenna’s apologies is that they mean something. She doesn’t apologize and then keep doing the same thing over and over. She actually learns and uses the mistake to become a better person. Remember the hour long apology video about her fish? Ya.

Personality. Jenna is one of the funniest people I know on social media. Her brain works in mysterious ways. She’ll come up with the most ridiculous video ideas you’ve ever heard, but somehow it works. Who wakes up one day and thinks “I’m gonna turn my hair into a hot wheels track”? Jenna. That’s who. She has many memes and has created memorable catchphrases like “hell yea” and “I’m a virgo!”

Her personality is infectious. On top of being genuinely funny, she is just a down to earth person. She mostly speaks in a low tone on the Jenna Julien podcast. Many times she’s just chilling in sweats with little to no makeup on. She’s a very laid back person.

She’s kind. In a world where it’s getting harder to find people who are genuinely nice and inspirational, it’s refreshing that someone like Jenna exists. It’s easy to let fame and popularity get to someone’s head but Jenna has maintained a sweet, kind, caring, attitude. She cares about the people around her and the people that watch her videos.

She doesn’t go around flagging everyone that uses her videos or pictures. She doesn’t take legal action against people. She understands that people just want to support her. She doesn’t feel the need to go around bullying everyone and abusing her power.

This is my article on why Jenna Marbles will always be my favorite person. Even if one day she decides to leave social media forever and quits making videos. I will always think of her and remember all the amazing years she has given us. It’s hard to forget somebody who has personally influenced me to be a better person. Jenna is one of the main reasons I became a more positive and happy person. That is something I will never forget. Thank you, Jenna. Or should I say….Thank you beeeeech!

Being a new content creator sucks

why it’s hard to be a new content creator in 2020

This is a blog I thought of just today when I had some internet troll try and downplay my work because I don’t have many followers on Twitter. Although, it didn’t bother me. It did, though, give me an idea for a blog today.

When you’re starting out with being a Youtuber or Twitch streamer it sucks. You grind many hours. You put a lot of work into editing. It takes hours out of your day because you want to take it seriously. But then you upload it into the world and wait for the views to roll in. You wait. And wait. And wait. OMG 1 VIEW. Nevermind, that was just you clicking on your own video.

That’s okay, you’ll keep trying. Days go by. Weeks go by. Sometimes months. Still nothing. Such is the life sometimes of being a content creator. When you finally start getting some views then you have internet trolls telling you that you suck and nobody likes you because you get no views or likes.

When you’re starting out the trolls are loud. I deal with this now because all of my accounts are new, specifically for this brand. It doesn’t bother me because I’ve been a self employed content creator for most of my life. This is something I’ve learned to deal with and these people no longer bother me.

I don’t have anything to prove to them. I don’t need to show them a photo of my bank statement to prove myself to a bunch of nobodies online who have nothing better to do than create 50 fake Twitter accounts to troll people all day. I have had my own apartment for 10 years. I’m doing just fine. I don’t live in mommy’s basement. Sometimes I wish I did, though. Rent free? I’ll take that deal in a heartbeat!

However, when you’re new to the world of creating content online this is going to break a lot of people. When the only messages you receive are personal attacks, it sucks. Especially when you put so much time and effort into what you’re doing. It’s not your fault the views aren’t coming in.

They’ll always find something to make fun of, because they’re mad at their own failures in life. They want to take that anger out on others. So you’re a target to them. No matter how good you are they’ll find something negative to say. Just know that it has nothing to do with who you are or what you’re doing. These people just live miserable lives. We don’t need to lower ourselves to their sadness and emptiness.

The trick to getting some engagement on social media is hard work and consistency. Try and maintain the same schedule. Put hard work and effort into what you’re doing. Try and give people something that nobody else is offering. I promote this website as writing content, but I do much more. I do podcasts, videos. I also write screenplays. Recently I created a choose your own adventure type story.

Sure, people might do one or two of those things, but I do them all. I have actual training and education in these things. I have studied for years. Perfecting my craft. It takes time. Always try and educate yourself. Don’t know how to edit videos? Take online courses. If you wanna get serious results you’re going to have to put in the work.

I once tried to be a Twitch streamer because I thought it would be fun. I was humbled very fast. If your thought to starting a career is “that looks fun” then you have the wrong idea. You might want to do something because it’s fun, but you’re not seeing the other side of the camera. The work that goes into making Twitch streams fun.

You see your favorite content creator having fun and you want to do it. Great. What you’re not seeing is all the hard work they’re doing behind the scenes to make it entertaining for their audience. You have to keep an exact schedule every week, stream at least multiple hours straight, for years to see results. You also have to educate yourself on how to set up a stream and why you’re doing the things you’re doing.

Whether it’s a blog website, a Youtube channel, or a Twitch stream. Consistency and hard work will pay off eventually. Keep at it and you’ll be fine.

My writing roadmap for 2020

It’s crazy to think about the fact that I’ve only created this website in October but have already gained a large following and made this a steady income for myself. I know I’ve made a lot of amazing fans, but I have also made some broken promises.

Writing is my full time job. When I’m not posting nearly daily content on this website, I am writing for tons of people all over the world. Yet, I still somehow manage to update content regularly here. Not because I have to but because I love what I do.

Unfortunately, that has also meant not keeping many of the promises I have made. I know almost all of you probably haven’t even noticed or cared but I have. I want people to keep coming back here because they know what to expect. I feel like the past few weeks I’ve slowly been going in the right direction.

While I have been busy, I have made time to plan out everything I want to do in 2020. Let’s call it a roadmap. I feel like I am finally on the right direction with my website content as well as setting up a Patreon so people have access to exclusive content that nobody else will get. Everything is coming together but next year in 2020 is where things will be in full motion. I have laid the groundwork and in 2020 I will execute my plan. Here is what you can expect:

blogs, articles, and short stories – I put this on the list first because it felt the most obvious. My website has and always will be a story based website of fictional writing. As well as blogs and articles about things in the news or that are on my mind, while you guys wait for the next fictional story to arrive.

Screenplays – Just a little while ago I sent out a blog about a specific screenplay I wanted to write. I even mentioned it will be in 2020. This is my plan. I also want to do other screenplays.

blog interviews – Yes, you read that right. In a new addition to this website I wanted to start interviewing people from different professions all over the world. There are so many interesting people out there. Actors, musicians, etc. I already have some people in mind that I’d love to interview.

podcasts – I might be wrong about this, but I believe when I first started this website I did one or two podcasts and then stopped. Although, one of the perks on my Patreon is to get one guaranteed podcast a month. However, I plan on doing much more podcasts in 2020. I will still never have a schedule and it will be whenever I have time, but this is something that will happen more often than now.

Youtube videos – This is one of the things I didn’t keep my promises on. Truthfully, this one is at the bottom of my list for things to do. Youtube is so broken and it’s the reason I left years ago when I used to be a more popular Youtuber. Part of me wants to make content, but a big part of me doesn’t enjoy doing on camera stuff anymore. It’s why I quit acting and comedy. However, I do have many ideas for things I want to talk about or at least just do audio videos about. I will try my best to make some for 2020, though.
