A Change in Plans, The Clickable Chef and New Channels on JTV Providing Content


I was going to write about the channels broadcasting sports and network television on JTV once again tonight. I started writing and before I knew it time had run away with me and I needed to dash out to meet a friend for lunch. By the time I came back, my mind was off to another topic — passport renewal — and about the time I finished uploading the shots for the post I found myself in Anthony’s room and was into virtual dinner preparation. I looked up and had just 15 minutes before it was time to head into the kitchen and make dinner. So, the original post went to the back of the shelf, the passport renewal post went to the next rung on the shelf and The Clickable Chef became tonight’s #1 topic with a very brief look into a new JTV channel — Ed Dale and The Thirty Day Challenge. The rebroadcasting argument isn’t dead, I just moved on.

To the Rescue


So, you’ve got a problem. You’re standing in the kitchen, on camera, broadcasting for all the world to see. Two beautiful New York strip steaks are in your hands and you are not sure what to do next. They are frozen like a rock, just out of the freezer. Actually, they are a little frosty. That freezer of yours is not as up to date as you’d like and it leaves your food with frost around the outside, no matter how you package it. You’re standing in the middle of the kitchen a bit perplexed. What are you going to make to go along with the steaks? Your wife worked today and you were at home taking care of all things domestic. Tonight is your night to make a nice dinner and you don’t know what you want to make.

Short, Sweet and to the Point — A Long Week Winds Down

On the Rebound

In the next few days Justopia should be back to the old Justopia — perky, upbeat and a cooking fiend. Tonight however begins the downhill slide to total wellness, so I am just going to post a few words and sign off for the night. I checked the dinner shots and they were too blurry to post, so we will go without photos tonight and wait for the sight to return to normal in a few days.


It was a strange day on the network. I spent time in Stacia’s room again since she was one of the only people up and about most of the day and when it came time for me to cook I had a visit by a fellow blogger that didn’t take too kindly to the post I published last night. It appears that there was a bit of a misunderstanding when he was on the phone with ECV last night and he claimed in my room that he was not telling us what we had to write, but that what we write is not factual. I then found out he included me in a raging video tonight, but what are you gonna do? You put yourself out there and someone is likely to have a reaction. Surely you all remember when Justin got so peeved at me a few months ago and while I was not at home watching, he looked straight into the camera and let me have it. I take my lumps, have even pulled blog posts, and have moved on. Often it’s well deserved. I apologize when I have stepped out of line and I just go away when I don’t.

Appreciative Lifecasters

I stepped into SilverLining’s room. She wanted help understanding her kitchen knife set — what blade is used for what kind of food, etc. so I walked her through the set and she seemed genuinely happy. It’s good to know that people can actually get some help here.  A worthwhile lifecast of an everyday life.

I took a poke into SpookyMcgee’s room tonight and she was her usual chipper self.  She is a good cast to end the night with — it’s always upbeat and positive, which is what is needed after a long day of observing and participating in the world of JTV.

Personal JTV Angst

There is a lot I have to say tonight, but before I got off on a rant and say things that are better left unsaid, I will stop with this … If you think you know what I am feeling. If you think you know what my beliefs are. If you think you understand what makes me tick and you have not spoken with me in person, have not had personal contact with me, step back before making any further judgement about my character. I am what I am — what you see on cam or in the rooms or in this blog is me. No airs. No fake, phony or put on here. The Louis Vuitton I carry is Louis and the Bally I wear is Bally. No knock offs for me and that is how I am each night on camera. I have shared what is currently the most intimate part of my life this past week and have done all but put up the shots of a peripheral line running steroids into my veins for you to experience my world as it is — in the moment. So, if you make a perceived judgement of what I am thinking about as you troll the network you may wish to step back and think twice.

It’s all getting a little old.
