From the Office of the President

Hello Everyone,

I want to take this time to explain why the Eaton Media Group has not published or updated anything since 2019 outside of our recent upload for “NES Quest.” As you all know, the hurricane that hit Nova Scotia in September of 2019 was quite devastating. It caused a lot of damage to our local infrastructure and caused a severe financial strain on the company. Seen how we do not yet make a huge amount of passive income from advertising affected our ability to return to production as the costs to rebuild everything were immense.

The primary contributing factor to me not getting back to production was a topic that I generally do not discuss with anyone. Since 2012, I’ve been suffering from PTSD & depression due to a series of events in February of 2012. Stability was becoming a bit of a problem, and I had to segregate myself from several things. I had to cut back on everything I was doing, and I proceeded to take antidepressant medication to help me deal with some of the symptoms. Everything itself was starting to get better towards the end of 2019, and I hoped to get back to work, producing in 2020. Unfortunately, when 2020 happened, oh, my wife and I lost all of our Import and Export business that we usually do with China and all of these students who were work I would edit and correct left because the schools shut down in March. My wife was still doing classes from home, and I had to completely and fundamentally change the way I did everything. I had to homeschool my children and devote my time to them instead of getting back into production. I don’t feel that I need to apologize for this because it happens, but I think some accountability is necessary because I failed myself.

As you all know, 2020 was a bad year for everyone. I started rebuilding my office and started updating software and using my free time or what little free time I had to learn new skills and improve the production quality when I finally got back to business. Unfortunately, the eating Media Group has had to cancel several projects and put them on a quasi-permanent hold due to political instability and hostilities here in Canada and the United States. The team that I was assembling from across the world does not feel that it would be safe for them to engage in such activities until stability finally returns.

At the end of 2020, on December 20th, I fell ill. I will not be getting into details, but I almost lost my life. It was an extremely traumatic experience, and I have spent the past several months trying to recover from the excessive amount of damage caused physically. The mental side effects are immense, and I’m lucky to have such good friends. I have a good family and good friends that have supported me through this trying time, and that’s why I decided to get back to work finally.

When I uploaded the NES Quest video, it was exciting for me to be back in production. Right now, I am busy working on a bunch of background research for the NES series while trying to support my younger brother in launching his Twitch streaming career. I look forward to getting back to work, and I look forward to making some excellent content, and I have several significant projects in the works. Stay tuned for updates.

100 Subscriber Milestone!

In the wee hours of August 22nd, 2019, we watched as our subscriber count hit 99 and then during a refresh it rolled over to 100. There was a brief pause in disbelief as its only been 2 weeks since we started our first uploads for our first series.

It might not seem like a lot of people but to us, it’s a HUGE step forward in building the success of our business. According to YouTubes rules, we cannot have a custom URL for our channel unless we meet this milestone. Well, here it is, our brand new custom URL from YouTube.

Over the past few days, we’ve been updating many of our templates and working on the SEO of our website and the YouTube channel. We’ve started to include our sponsor links on the upcoming videos are well. We are also preparing for the release of NES Quest that is currently planned for launch on September 5th.

Divide and Conquer

In light of the changes that we’ve had to make with regards to our main channel, we have decided to shift some content over to a new channel that will only focus on content that is more “controversial” in nature.

Mixing many different types of content on one channel is not a bad idea, as a good amount of diversity is always good to have. What is a bad idea is putting topics that might not be suitable for all viewers together with normal content like gaming or Anime.

This division will take a lot of effort to grow the video base but we think that will allow us to cover a wider array of subjects. When we are ready to share the new channel publicly will we share its link and will start uploading more videos.

We are also looking at what to do with our educational courses that are under development. We are considering separating Eaton University into another division like EMG News as we want to bring on more professionals to generate as much amazing content as possible.

Originally we were going to bundle everything in 1 place making it easy for everyone to access but realized that someone who wants to watch gaming content might not like educational lessons or political commentary.

Over the next week, while prepping our NES Quest series we will also be looking into more options to get EMG News and Eaton University ready for the planned 2020 launch.

As always, remember to subscribe to our YouTube channel.

Official Announcement – Lets Talk Anime

Eaton Media Group is pleased to announce a brand new podcast series coming to our YouTube channel, coming in the fall of 2019. Lets Talk Anime is a new series hosted by Joshua Eaton with his special co-host Geneva Eaton.

Anime is often misunderstood by pretty much everyone who has either never seen it or does not understand why “Adults watch cartoons”. This series will review and discuss many of the Anime series as broadcast by Crunchyroll and Funimation. Geneva will provide her commentary on what she likes about each series and which different series she would recommend people to watch. Joshua will provide the adult side of the review looking at deeper and more meaning issues covered in Anime as well as some other series that are NOT suitable for children.

More information on the schedule will be posted later this year as development progresses.

Decisions from the President

Greetings,

I’ve spent the past few days doing a lot of work, trying to get production values up and learn new software and streamline our production processes. I’ve also taken the time to understand what’s happening around the internet with regards to policies enacted by social media companies, the Canadian government and YouTube.

I want to go over each of these topics to explain what’s going on and what we are going to do about it.




Social Media policy updates –
As many of you already know from my previous post on legal issues and getting permission from Facebook to publish content. There have been many more updates and we are “clear” to continue sharing most of our content on Facebook but Twitter has other plans. Twitter has stepped up its suppression of speech leading up to the Canadian election. Just about anything trending on Twitter is being suppressed if it involves political content of any kind.

I was personally suspended twice (24hours each) from Twitter for “Election interference”. I made 2 tweets about the election, telling people that if they want to change they need to go vote and another tweet telling Americans that here in Nova Scotia we need to show ID to vote, so voter ID laws are not that bad. Facebook as yet to let me know about its policies but God only knows what they will do.

Over on YouTube, a lot of other creators have been demonetized completely for news or political content. They have also been de-ranked and their videos are no longer getting shared. Tim Pool has been talking about this frequently and we find it very disturbing. It makes a lot of our planned videos a “financial black hole”.




Investing in production value –
Since I’m technically the only person who really does any work, I’m under a lot of pressure to do things right and keep improving everything. I’ve invested a lot of money into this and have poured countless hours into learning how to use all the new software and tools. I’ve also had issues with things just not working due to some of the professional-grade hardware I picked up but have found solutions.

Now that the stress of the first release is gone, its time to take a look back and make some serious refinements to just about everything and you can see how much work was done with regards to the previous Mr. Reality Check into video as compared to the one that was released Tuesday.

I’ve got some new hardware coming and some software utilities to get installed, so keep watching for improvements. On a side note, I’m working on designing an entirely new work area here in the house and a proper production studio in the 1 half of our basement.




Suspension of 3 new series –
It’s with great sadness that I have to inform you that I’ve decided to suspend the development of 3 of our political series. Due to some policy changes at YouTube and Twitter, we are going to suspend the Parliamentary Report, State of the Union and People’s Congress until 2020.

Parliamentary Report will not be published even though I’ve already written 17 episodes. It won’t be published due to issues with the already mentioned policies but also because the Canadian Government has issued new social media rules that could see our accounts “banned” or “restricted” even though we already have the approval to publish on their platforms.

The State of the Union may not be affected because it was due for launch in 2020 anyway.

People’s Congress is a major issue do to Hong Kong and threats from the Chinese government. I’ve made the decision to hold off until things calm down so there will be less risk to my family.




Profitability –
It’s one thing to make videos that I enjoy, it’s another to make videos that will never make a dime. Due to the demonetization policies of YouTube I’ve decided that we need to focus on content that will allow us to make a profit so we can establish the channel and build a fan base.

We are going to focus on family-friendly content for now and have something in mind to save our News & Political commentary programs.

I guess what I’m saying is that I can’t produce something that I know is not going to make us any money and will not help grow the channel. Once we are fully able to monetize the channel, things should change.




Thanks for reading,
Joshua Eaton

Parliamentary Report – Intro is Live

We are still waiting for the writ to be dropped and for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to dissolve parliament but that does not mean we haven’t been hard at work.

Over the past several days we’ve been overhauling and fixing errors on the website but have also dedicated a lot of time to our podcasts. We’ve completed our into for Parliamentary Report and added a nice soundtrack.

Its nothing fancy as we want to keep things simple so we are able to focus on the content itself more. Click below to check our out video upload to YouTube and let us know what you think.
