What’s going on with downloads & Club Firestorm

What a week. In addition to having no way to make money (my knee, can’t private wrestle, and PayPal shut me down), I’ve had the flu the past couple days. This must be what I get for punishing all those pretty boys last year. I’m on the mend, and getting things done.

  • If you’re a current member of Club Firestorm, fear not. You will still have access to all the content until your membership was going to expire. If your membership has expired because there’s no way to be billed, I’m going to be manually extending them. Just hang tight, I’ll be going though records and checking on dates.
  • I’ve signed up for a new service, and will be implementing it shortly. It should allow people to sign back up for Club Firestorm.
  • My PayPal account was shut down, which made it impossible for me to process payments. Both for Club Firestorm Memberships, and regular download orders.
  • All Club Firestorm Members are going to have to sign up again. I’m sorry, I know it’s a hassle. There’s just now way around it. I won’t reveal how, but there will be extra free content made available for a little while as an incentive/thank you for doing so. Expect an email from me directly, letting you know when your expiration date will be along with any incentives to sign back up.
  • As far as VOD orders go. I’ve figured out a way to accept payments for them, but it would involve me having to manually send out the e-mail links for the VODs. Which, I’m ok doing, but I liked having it be instant. But, for now, anything is better than nothing, so I’m going to be setting it up.

I’m also thinking of implementing a new level of billing for Club Firestorm. The monthly recurring membership cost would be higher, but you’d have access to stream every single match I have to offer, at no additional cost. This wouldn’t replace the current level of CF Membership, it would be an alternative option. What do you think?

I’m going to be doing some research on having a new website built, I have on person offering already, I’m waiting to hear back from a second. It’s not terribly difficult to do things myself, but if it were more automated, it would save a little more time. There are design and content features I’d like to implement but it’s more than I know how to do.

Time to get some work done. Hope everybody has a good weekend.

Jonny

Power bombed by PayPal

For reasons I’m not going to get into publicly, PayPal gave me the boot today, so as of right now I have no way to process payments/you have no way to buy matches.

I’m working on it now, there’s a lot of things to consider moving forward. I’m hoping to have something figured out by the end of the day, even if it’s just a temporary fix until I find something more permanent.

If you’re a current CF Member, your membership is still active, but none of you will be billed again. It will require signing back up when I have something permanent figured out, and I will be addressing all of you separately from this general announcement.

To the individual who caused this to happen, you know who you are, go fuck yourself.

There’s a new match available in the VOD Store.

Jonny Firestorm vs. Braden Charron is a 25 minute, action packed squash job, and is available to download for $50 (or $25 for Club Firestorm members under the Discounted VODs tab).

Braden will chose whoever punishes him the most as his master, giving up his body to the victor.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, CF update

Now that I’ve had my day to sulk over the Patriots loss to Denver, it’s time to get back to work. This team is so good, it’s amazing what they’re able to do. They played and were beating the #1 defense in the NFL with 1 legitimate WR, an offensive line thats been patched together, and their backup RB. I know every team is banged up at this point, but look at how baron they are at WR. Even the WR group in Baltimore, or Carolina is better than what the Pats are playing with right now. I think the clock management was poor towards the end of the game, the pass play Gronk got hurt on should’ve been a run. That whole drive should’ve been run, run, run, punt if need be. It’s kind of good they lost, I think BB will be able to use that as motivation. ‘Dola will be back soon, Gronk will be healthy in a couple weeks, if things go well for Edelman, he’ll be back by week 17 or the playoffs, Collin’s & Hightower should be back up to speed in a couple weeks. The Lewis injury is still a tough one to deal with. I’m just glad they lost now, I couldn’t handle them going 16-0, just to lose in the SB again.

Anyways, onto the Jonny stuff.

My knee is feeling significantly better than it was the last time I posted. It’s still a little swollen, but I’m able to walk without crutches now. Just around the house and stuff, I don’t want to go overboard. I’ve started (gingerly) doing stairs. It feels good to use the leg again after not being able to put weight on it, or bend it for about a month. If things keep progressing like this, I’m hoping I’ll be back on my feet and squashing jobbers in a couple months.

Club Firestorm members will notice everything has been updated.

The free pro match is going to be added shortly, the video files are still rendering. The file type they were origionally in isn’t compatible with the video player I use, so I had to remake them.

The main website is going to have a new match added to it next week, it’s a match I think everybody will enjoy a lot. I’m going to give Club Firestorm members a pre-release version this weekend.

I’m very excited to have Aryx Quinn/Tristan Baldwin in the fold. He’s one of a kind. Often imitated, never duplicated. He’s as skilled as he is sexy, he’s versatile (nudge, nudge, wink, wink) so he can fight on the mats, just as easily as he can rumble in the ring. I’ve always enjoyed working with Aryx, even if we were staring each other down from opposite corners of the ring.

I was pretty bummed out after hurting my knee, but I think even being hurt, I can help contribute in a lot of ways, especially that I’m more mobile now. I was basically useless in FL for the BG East tapings. I was stuck in a chair holding a camera the whole time, I did get some great shots, but it’s not the best use of my skill set. I’m able to help demonstrate more moves now, I can still head to pro practices and offer my 2 cents. I think just getting out of the house and being around things I enjoy will help get be back on track faster. It’s been miserable laying around with my leg up. I’ve gone though everything on my DVR. I have had a chance to get some reading done, which is nice. I forgot how much I enjoyed to sit back with a book and relax.

That’ll do it for now, keep your eyes peeled next week for a brand new Jonny match, that will be available on the main site (or 50% off for Club Firestorm members, in the discounted VODs section).
