Week in Review – November 13, 2016

The past week can only be characterised by the US Presidential election. It overshadows the vlogs I did that week, though I haven’t even posted them yet. Soon! So, let’s find out what happened.


I’m at 57% in The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin. Great progress! I may actually finish this week! If so, that’ll be wonderful.


NaNoWriMo is officially a failure. Although I still have 17 days, I won’t be able to catch up. I have written nothing in the past week. I will still work on it, though.


I had a very busy week at work last week, so I had less time to work on both publishing and shooting videos. However, I did publish 7 videos on my main channel and 5 on my vlog channel. I’m still behind on my vlog channel, though I am catching up a bit. The biggest thing about my vlog channel is that I may start doing science videos once a week!


Nothing. Major revamp coming!


I need to get back to work on this.

The Blog

Despite the fact that I’ve been making fewer posts, the average number of views per day has increased. I find that very interesting.



The Next Week’s Goals

I’m planning on doing some reviews. Yes, I’m saying that again. I also have to write my Star Trek episode 8 review and watch more episodes. I’m going to develop my science video idea further. And I need to learn a new video editor. I want to be able to add graphics to my videos.

How about you?

Awkward Newbies and Shoutouts! The Jay Dee Show 6

Another week has gone, which means it’s time for more videos! This past week has seen some fairly popular videos on my main channel. However, on my vlog channel, I got a little behind. Time to catch up!

First up is my main channel.  I discovered something called Authortube, so I did an Authortube Newbie Tag video.

Following that, I did my always popular Booktube Shoutouts video for the month. I imitated the Booktubers I talked about, too!

Having seen plenty of awkward newbies on Booktube, I decided to make a video about how to not be awkward. I put a lot of humour into it.

Continuing The Star Trek Project, I posted the next episode of Star Trek.

A Taste of Japan continued with a visit to the beautiful Hamarikyu Gardens. Definitely worth seeing this place.

And then I reviewed MoonRush, a book I wasn’t impressed with.

And finally, I talked about why I chose science fiction and fantasy to write in the video edition of Authors Answer.

Moving on to my vlog channel, I posted 5 videos in an attempt to catch up. I’m still a little behind, but slowly catching up.

In the first video of the week, I talked about NaNoWriMo, and how I was too tired to write.

And then my wife and I went to an amazing sushi restaurant. Some of the best sushi you can find in Edmonton.

A movie next summer has me very interested. And that’s Wonder Woman. I talked about it and the trailer.

I’m still feeling awkward in Canada. Many things still feel a bit strange, as if I still had reverse culture shock.

And finally, a vlog that covered three days and each day had different weather.

That’s all for this week. I’ll be working on catching up on my vlog channel. Also, I have some ideas for doing science videos on my vlog channel once a week. I’m looking forward to giving that a try!

Let me know which video you enjoyed the most in the comments.
