But we do know where they were going. And we finally know their objective.

Hi everyone. Hope all is well out there, particularly as some of our friends in Australia are evidently on fire of late.
My apologies for being absent for these past weeks. I have still been in discussion with NCH Australia regarding the editing package I use and have used for the Book of Man projects since day one.
It has finally come down to having to forward them the entire contents of the work folder for Element 3 of the Founders, as the glitch I am experiencing at the moment seems to be a one off and their tech folks are just as boggled as I am.
So, for the time being The Founders is on hold until we can work out the issues. Once this problem has been resolved Element 3 will be up in a matter of days afterwards.
Also at the moment I am in the process of beginning my very own livestream show series, for which the title card is pictured above. My first attempt on DISCORD was a very good show though the recording was somewhat hosed by technical issues which have been worked out.
I am now gathering some of my old contacts network to start scheduling interviews. At the moment some good friends of mine are attempting to work out some of the bugs inherent with Discord video, though I expect it will come together shortly. In the meantime, I will most likely switch back and forth between YouTube livestream and Discord.
In the future, I will post notice here of any upcoming interviews along with links if you wish to or can attend.
I would like to give a shout out to Mr. Nordin who has so graciously sent in a contribution which came at a very thankful moment. Thanks!
Stay tuned my friends, we will get all this stuff worked out and be back posting regularly as soon as I can.
Cheers all – Brian
Hello my friends!
So I suppose it should make perfect sense that as soon as I get back on to the internet, there are glitches in my editing software.
I have been ready to upload Element 3 now all weekend, except there is a nasty little glitch in the editing software which seems to only affect the narration track and for which I have not been able to resolve by concerted effort.
As of this morning I have thrown in the towel and placed a support ticket with the company in Australia as it has reached a point now where this will require application engineering solutions.
I can tell you that they are very earnest in their work and I have worked very closely with them for a very long time, so I expect the think tank down there to help me out here.
I will take the day today and maybe tomorrow off in waiting for their fix to come down the pike, so in the meantime just be aware that the new episode is now pushed back until at least next weekend.
For all intents and purposes it is actually finished except for the audio file glitch I am currently experiencing.
Not to worry, if this was going to be easy, we would all be millionaires by now. LOL
Cheers my friends and just put one foot in front of the other.
So after TWO long months of dead silence and missing everything and everybody, I have secured a fair internet account with a decent pipe and can now resume what needs to be done. YAY !!
Trust me, with no internet – Solitaire gets REALLY old after like 20 minutes so you can imagine how desperate I was becoming after 2 months.
I would like to sincerely thank Shaggie, Jamie, and Kez for helping out through the dark times – kudos my friends and thank you.
Element 03 of The Founders is practically completed so I will be releasing this fairly soon. It still needs a little buttoning up and should be on its way in a few days. I think you guys are going to like this one, there’s lots to tell in a very short time.
For right now, I’m back to work and I am going to attempt to start getting these out every 2-3 weeks.
Cheers my friends and we’ll talk laterz
Hi guys and gals.
I will be shipping off several book orders after this weekend, though I am being killed by overseas/cross border shipping charges. And I do mean killed.
I didn’t get the memo but evidently the US is in the middle of a shipping war with the rest of the world, and it has become time to rethink the entire book order process.
For the immediate future, I will either pull the book sales entirely, or restrict to only the US until further notice. The cost of shipping is way more than the cost of the book and I have found no way around it.
In other interesting news, I am writing this from the county library here as I have lost my internet where I am living. As I do not have the money to have internet service installed, it looks like I will have to wait until the first of September to send up the next episode of The Founders, as well as come here to perform any other maintenance or updates.
Due to this last book order, I have been wiped out (again due to the package/shipping charges).
If there is anyone out there that can see their way clear to drop a contribution or two, it would be terribly appreciated.
Pawn shops are not a reliable way to get funds.
I will try to get back up here as soon as I can. In the meantime, I will be getting back to work on further episodes pending restoration of the internet, as well as finishing editing on ASCENSION for publication. Hopefully some genius in shipping will fix the latest issue.
Cheers my friends, we will talk again soon – Brian.
Vimeo has converted our video albums to what they call a showcase. In other terms, it is called a playlist on YouTube but these pages are gorgeous and highlight the album lists.
So I have placed up three showcases which can be played serially as the continous video series that it is.
The first Book of Man contains all three books from the beginning onward. The Book of Man ASCENSION has its own album, as well as The Founders.
Enjoy my friends!
The Founders: Element 02 is now ready on Vimeo !
