Bognor259 Entertainment.

We are expanding to cover more for Entertainment Objectives, for example:

  1. Dance, Performance Art – Theory & Practice.
  2. Music, Royalty Free Music as used in our YT videos, etc.
  3. Filming, techniques, trailers & teasers in our video work.
  4. Media, communication of info & entertainment.
  5. Sports, spectator Martial Arts & Fitness related action.
  6. Cultural Events, such as festivals, parades & cosplay conventions.
  7. Video games & story development & other digital experiences.
  8. Green Screen & such activities for fun & info.

This does limit my activities but, in producing future work for vlogging & blogging, we will try to cover and work to produce within the area of entertainment for fun & info. In the past we have limited us to ‘Music & Dance’ but have on occasion over lapped other areas so from now on, we shall refer to this blog as an entertainment project. For instance we aim to include RAP and will, as we did for ‘Rap-Attack’ places that within the ‘Entertainment-Music’ although this was included in our video ‘Rap Defender V221’ in our YouTube Channel ‘Poplock Paul’ & Bognor Dancer.

Rap Defenders Mc Tesla & Poplock Dancer v221.

Rap Defenders Mc Tesla & Poplock Dancer v221 was a combined effort to produce a ‘Rap Music Dance’ video from our own efforts, our own words, beat and style. We are aiming to produce more poetical rap tracks like this in future YouTube videos. The first Rap Track is by ‘Mc Tesla’ who is a friend of mine and with common interests in Rap and Martial Arts, both of us having fought in the ring, etc: Despite being 58, I have recently fought in the ring and boxed 3 contests, going the distance in 2 & winning 1. The second Rap Track is an old one I had and I will be looking to turn some of my old poems into these types of raps and with some basic beats I hope to create also some new tracks. I find ‘Mc Tesla’ very fast but I can keep up with his Raps but I can’t memorise or Rap that quick, I used to do poems off from memory, who knows maybe one day I will but we are different types of Rappers and hopefully this blend will be useful in future creations. Thinking about it, I should do 1 for November 2020 & 1 for Xmas. I was going to add text and pictures but with the software I’m using at the moment it tends to distort the video, so I have kept it clean and simple so at least the quality will not be affected. I may have a solution to this problem, I have updated software and indeed have been adding graphics such as pictures and gifs, it seems if I use MP4 files with MPEG it tends to lag. I am looking to either re-shoot videos in MPEG or I will convert them to MP4 in future productions. I’m quite happy with this video and look forward to creating more, I have always wanted to do Raps from my poems and thanks to ‘Mc Tesla’ and the finding of my lost track on my MP3 I feel I shall give it a go. I’m quite happy at this first attempt, a follow up will be on my to do list, it is possible to use this to push the messages and causes I’m backing up. Thank you for any feedback and please like, share & sub.

Bognor Dj Les In The Mix Music

Bognor Dj Les in the mix, music for your entertainment.

Video has been removed !!

I had the pleasure of asking DjLes some questions, from those questions I shall place here a few extracts from those chats on Project2020.

http://project2020.bognor259.com/june/dj_les_dickens_karaoke_dj_south_coast_uk.php

Well, by now you probably realise I love my music and I mean I really do but what is music?
To some its the current chart, to others its a particular genre, music however, is a multitude of genres and performers and spreads out commercially well over 80 years. They key thing I think to remember about music is to embrace and love it. Music is life. I believe this wholeheartedly, memories, passion and enjoyment, no matter what the genre as its a personable thing. One artist may be legendary to one but not to another. One genre may be the ultimate style to one but not to another. My own personal tastes vary depending on my mood or what I am doing. Background music sets a tone, not necessarily what you’d want while driving let’s say. Yes music is a powerful medium and in the right place and the right time is a perfect accompaniment to whatever you are doing. Music lets not forget has been around in Chart form since the 50s. That’s a lot of number one hit singles and even more that didn’t make it. 70 years worth of hits and memories that transcend across generations and families and countries of the world. All touched at some point by something they heard on the radio by chance or by regularly listening to the weekly chart shows in their bedrooms.

That was in reply to my question. Poplock Paul asks Dj Les Dickens ‘Why do you believe Music is so important especially in these strange times?’

To continue with ‘Bognor Dj Les’

Music is a history lesson of life and culture within our Country and the past must never be forgotten as it also influences the future. I love performing now as a DJ because it gives me the opportunity to present a journey every time I play.
What is my style? Well to be honest I did mention in my first answer that there are a few out there that only play one genre and are very skilled within that. They specialise in that and do sometimes put on big nights with that one particular genre as the theme. The problem there is of course sustainability as it quickly become samey if it’s done all the time.
Music is a release, it’s a drug, it’s a passion, memory invoking moments whereby life is forgotten and people immerse themselves in nostalgia (whether that be from 50 years ago or two weeks ago) and they forget about worries and troubles while you play something that puts them into a happy place.

Expanded Web Estate Update

Having just checked my Web Stats 05.30am Fri 24th July 2020 I decided to write for a change about what I do to promote causes for ‘Bognor Music & Dance’ etc.

Working away creating content and promoting…

Whilst I have worked 14+ years to raise awareness for local causes and charities I am working on a commercial project. As well as help promote music & dancing locally in Bognor Regis & online I also create my own YouTube Videos for my’Poplock Paul’ channel & also many other projects.

So I have exbanded my website estate and think it is time I updated my web mission, whilst I will be running the Web Project to promote local causes and artists from Dj’s to Dancers, freely as I have done for 14 years I am looking at several commercial prospects to help with costs & expand.

Years ago when I was running a Martial Art Club and travelling around meeting & competing other Martial Artists in Tournaments & Associations, someone told me that doing things for free can make it seem a worthless pursuit, that most people only value something they have to pay for.

http://electronic-music-events.com/

One of my recent edits & promotions is for a great local ‘Dj Les’ who I have known for many years, I wrote about ‘Dj Les Dickens’ & several other dejays, in my website ‘Project2020’ for local promotions but mainly ‘Bognor Regis Music & Dance Causes & Charities’ which raised over £750 UKP for a NHS Charity I believe.

http://project2020.bognor259.com/

May & June the ‘LIVESTREAM’ joint effort went well. but due to changes the project came to an end, I am continuing with the ‘Project2020’ to raise awareness & weights. I am also doing a series of ‘dance fibit fitness’ videos for YouTube, as well as several other smaller projects I will be promoting.

https://www.youtube.com/c/PoplockGM/

Talking about YouTube I try to feature other people in my videos and have over the years been in many events and situations, if you are local or see me say ‘Hi’ and if I have me camera maybe you will dance with me?

My web estate consists of about 8 key websites that I contribute content to and can be found easily in many Search-Engines including Google, whilst I didn’t set out to be a WebMaster I have over time found it fun to write and whilst I probably will never create a great book I seem to have found a way to write for tens of thousands over the years via my articles & posts.

Sometimes I write about minecraft, as I own my own server so players can get on and join in, I am creating a new video series and in fact that is my next task as it needs an update via www.ftb259.com and I look forward to checking and adding new protected areas & structures as well as a new video and updated post.

http://ftb259.com/

Currently I am doing a recon and will start building more protected areas and a road to which we will begin exploring more of this minecraft world, as time goes by I expect to unlock more of this minecraft version 1.16.1 server world, players are welcome to join in my project and indeed once I get to know them I can make them a protected area or assign them to one.

I aim to keep the guidelines real easy, players can join in the road project or have their own areas, anyone griefing or stealing will be banned, usually with a dozen or so players there are always one or two so that is why I am running an adult server to avoid tantrums and sillyness.

Besides, with the YouTube videos I do not want to make content for kiddies, else that means my video licence terms change and quite honest that would make my job a lot harder.

I shall leave you with this update, but I am expanding and indeed have a rota for creating regular content for my Web Estate and YOUR web links be they websites, blogs, video or other web services that many visitors find interesting, so bye for now and if you need help or wish to contact then catch me on Facebook ‘Poplock Paul’ and maybe your site might be featured in my network. Stay safe & bye for now…

Fitness 2020 Update 18th July

For some time despite illnesses and distractions I have kept a fitness regime going, but now have updated the idea and gathered some new fitbit info & screen shots to show I have a fitness plan for 2020. Problem with creating these updates is by the time I have put the content out I have achieved a new level but, basically I am out to burn 28,000 Calories on a weekly basis. Basic ways I use to burn calories and build mean lean muscle is Dance, Weights, Roadwork sessions and Martial Arts like Boxing & Kickboxing as well as Ju Jitsu & grappling.

http://fitness.bognor259.com/

Having reached 800 reps & moved a total of 12,800 kg’s at the moment I want to cover this and other types of exercise. From weights to dancing, Martial Arts to Roadwork & anything that helps raise awareness & lower chance of problems such as Diabetes and other sorts of illnesses due to being over weight, etc. I believe that remaining out of shape can lead to Diabetes and Dementias as well as other dis-eases etc.

http://fitness.bognor259.com/

11th July 2020 was when I reached 800 reps when I have decided to cut back to 2 weight sessions a week, I have a set of other weights and can use those or do extra reps but for now going to let my body work at that level so I can work expanding my stamina and other areas such as MA, Dance and Roadwork be it walking, hikes and running. Building muscles & losing the fatty middle is important, having a bigger chest than waist apparently is a mark that you should have good health against diabetes and other such illness that may occur especially when one is overweight or indeed some what obese.

2 sets for today 28th June 2020

I did 123 minutes of training in Running & Weights, burning 847 calories which to me is a lazy day indeed. I try to burn a thousand calories a day in some sort of way to raise my weekly 20,000 average burn rate up to 28,000 calories a week. In theory I am at 27k burning 2lbs of calories a week, hopefully fat and judging by my loss of 2 inches from the waist is what I am after and an extra bit of muscles and strength, etc.

My lazy day with a couple of fat burning sessions.

Even when I am in lazy mode for a few days or a week I will still be losing calories and some of that waist and more importantly, putting on the extra lean muscle in the right areas is a great feeling and healthy too. I will leave that here but will be updating and the fitness 2020 site and looking at the other 3 days, I will make a fuller report on the benifits of training & how I stepped it up to a winning plan that works for me using my fitbit and some basic non costly ways and a basic good diet. A little every day every week soon shows. Bye for now and have fun getting motivated and fit. Freedom.

Project2020 July Update

July 2020 starts off with a nice session of dance and then some weights. Raising awareness for charity & causes as well as weights. whilst I was covering in May & June a project by Dj’s on the ‘LIVE STREAM ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK’ I was also doing other things like ‘Dance Fitbit Fitness’ and cracking some new shapes.

Poplock Shout Out To Dorota

A chance meeting with a friend, someone mentions dancing and then I am dancing on the beach with a lovelly bubbly Lady called Dorota. Now we have a new dance video 13N247 or ‘Shoutout 2 Dorota by Poplock Paul’ though you should find it via the link to the dance channel.

Dj Les Dickens answers this question, ‘Why do you believe Music is so important especially in these strange times?’

To find out the answer to that question you can read more at:

To some its the current chart, to others its a particular genre, music however, is a multitude of genres and performers and spreads out commercially well over 80 years. They key thing I think to remember about music is to embrace and love it.

Eventually the discussion ends with: I will always do what is asked of me and certainly now more than ever escapism and enjoyment through music, current right the way back to the start, through genres and artists is a powerful coping mechanism for a lot of people. Knowing I have made a difference and brought a smile is what makes this magical journey worth it to me. I am humbled at the opportunity to be able to do that. Right through Karaoke nights, weddings, Dj nights and more, the ability to affect someone’s state of mind with the music you play is an honour.

Poplock Paul on a rather different idea but rather than add some content here about ‘fitness – dance’ I have decided to create a new website for ‘FITNESS’ and post in more detail what I am doing and why for future reference. My workouts start from Dancing to Weights, Martial Arts to Walking & Hiking and the occassional Run. You can read more about that:

I rate Ryan as one of the best Dejays around, and recently as a Doorman I hear many customers praise his entertainment skills. I have heard this for the best part of the last decade so I would like to Shout-out and give a top review for an amazing and entertaining Dejay Ryan Hadwick. Always a pleasure to meet & I wish him all the best and hope to review and shout out as I am one of his many fans, chatting to him about random stuff and music is always interesting. There is so many things about Ryan I wish I could, maybe in later posts I can ?
Some good info about Dejay Ryan Hadwick

How long have I known Dejay Les Dickens ?
I guess at least 8 or so years at the Hardwick venue where DJ Les does or did ‘Karaoke Tuesdays’ which is where I used to drop in to socially drink & dance. I may from going to Gosport via the Ferry from Portsmouth Dockyard to do some Security shifts know Les as far back as 2007 as I worked in the ‘Waterfront’ venue.

Shaun Pearcey made every customer happy & welcome.
As a Doorman back then I remember the customers being excited when Dejay Shaun was on, I can recall Shaun was always honest and just said what was on his mind. Even when we went out for a couple of drinks, his honesty and straight forward views made one relax and there was no beating around the bush but Dejay Shaun was a fun guy and up for many things including joining us on the back of a lorry for parades like the local Gala in 2016…

Bognor Gala 2014 DJ Shaun Pearcey With Poplock V4H

Awaken to Create – v234 M6

The Awakening Experimental Video Xmas 2019 v234 was created and produced to try out a left scrolling back screen. I was hoping to add in a couple of other green screen effects but I’ll leave that for later.

Awaken To Create – v234 M6

I used the YouTube Royalty Free track ‘The Awakening’ in this with an old rap I made years ago. I shot the 2 videos with a graffiti background with the word CREATE I believe was created by a group called ‘CREATE’ near ‘Hotham Park’ in the under ground tunnel. Not entirely happy with this video but it is the first time I believe I have used this format, I might try a anime background with sprites next time. I hope you like the 2 tracks and different ideas.

What will you create today and tomorrow ?

I know I will be creating more ideas & shapes in the future, my past is my credentials as a suvivor & achiever as I have had to work through many problems that we encounter in life. Some people moan but I see it as an adventure and nothing worth gaining comes without pain, a price in life is via pain & suffering to achieve certain things in life I guess.

I am here to entertain you, help you entertain in any way I can and the fact that I can blog & film is just awesome. Are you not enterained ?

Currently at the moment I am creating content for project2020 and concentrating on ‘LIVE STREAM ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK’ and I have written for 3 of the Dejays Ryan, Les & Shaun.

http://livestream.bognor259.com/

I use that link as a click through on PHP websites, it seems to only act as a link on this blog which is a pity because I was hoping to put it in the sidebars as a widget, anyway that link will lead you to the ‘LIVE STREAM’ website but also through the next site ‘PROJECT2020’ you can find out more about the 2 Dejays Ryan, Les & Shaun.

http://project2020.bognor259.com/

I will be creating more ideas & shapes in the future, in the dance and in the videos & websites. So join me as I dance my way through life, maybe you can see the plan ahead and what we need to do to achieve again & again. So thanks for reading and hope you stay with us because the fun has only just begun, until we meet or until the next post stay safe & best regards !!

Picturedrome Dancer 233 M5

I might try this ‘CHALLENGE’ again !! Picturedrome v233 Dance Challenge Xmas 2019 – Challenge is can anyone send in viocemail, picture or video for any of these videos for Xmas 2019 to New Years Eve. This challenge will end New Years day. I will create a few more of these types of videos with your voicemail greeting, any pics or videos I can add. I can grab video footage of most online videos from my browser and save. * I can arrange a joint video project if anyone is interested and feeling like taking a shot at dancing.

Picturedrome Dancer V233

A few of my videos such as the Aviator video contains other artists videos and I have where applicable given credit and help in promoting their work in my ‘Web Video Project’ by Artists in their Videos & Websites etc. Say hello to my friend fans and let them see this and many more videos done and plenty planned ahead in time. I have done this now for 14 years, 2007 till 2020, I will carry on because the ‘Show Must Go On’ it is said.

I am working on a new series of videos, and will include YouTube Royalty Free Music and some dancers who want to be on one of my future videos. I am quite open to anyone who wants to be in a video or two but will need to follow an easy step by step format assessing their start level and showing progress. I no longer will accept those that can’t be bothered to train & practise, from now I will insist upon a short progressive interactive dance choreography and incremental routines. It is not that hard. The first part is based around walking or dance steps and is so simple & easy to pick up.

Bognor Dancer in front of Picuredrome, Park & Pier. I dance any where as dancing publically is a challenge, but helps grow confidence and pressure tests new routines and combo moves. Even early in the morning there will be people walking and driving to work, these shots were taken before the Covid19 HoloCough Plandemic. Looking forward where we can film outdoors again and create some new videos but till then I will be green screening a few videos and see how that goes. Catch up again & Best Regards for now…

A New Hope – V232 M4

Xmas 2019 with New Dance Music in a Rehearsal Video Shoot in v232 filming session in Hotham Park, Bognor Regis for Xmas 2019.

I’m using YouTube Royalty Free music. First rehearsal and hope to add more festive music and items to future videos. Not sure who added the xmas tinsil and card around the tree but not going to check, maybe some kid thinks Santa Claus lives up the tree !!

I used Popping, Locking & Rocking from mostly what I learned way back in 1984 & also via Urban Strides in High Wycombe, which I have a attended a few times in 3 day camps and a 5 day summer Camp since in 2018 & 2019. Wishing all of you a festive season indeed and hoping to see my dancing friends again soon.

As Bognor Dancer I am waiting for other members to hoof their way through one of our end of 2019 videos as a practice moves to make a great Xmas and New Year video. Apart from a few warm up in the few days before doing this video I filmed this and just went with the music with a few basic styles, something to work on in the last days of 2019 as I seek to create a handful of videos towards entering 2020 with peak dance skills, etc.

In this video I filmed and just went with the music with a few basic styles, a bit of uprock in a mix of two & three steps. A bit of popping & a locked pose before Street Tap. All right beside my friend the Mad Hatter, they try to stamp out Xmas and yet they fail.

A bit of arm locking & pointing, a bit of Robot-Popping or Bottin whilst some dog passes by looking for his bone. A couple of pictures from 2007 when I started this Web Dance Project & later 2008 when I started in Littlehampton as well as Bognor Regis Events & Parades. I think I am being followed, filmed in Hotham Park in Bognor Regis.

It takes greater effort to film in a park with all the distractions than in ones own room. This is one way a person can get extra practise between dancing solo with no distraction or pressure and then in a park one dances differently and is concious of watching eyes but, one gets used to that and pushes through and is a step closer to dancing under more pressure and scrutiny from people who may not know or appreciate the dance you are performing. Even better when there is no sound except in my head phones. So have fun, thanks for reading and best regards for now.

Dejay Shaun Pearcey M3

Over the years I have had many good events when Shaun has been the Dejay, I have come to like and indeed admire the way he works through the crowd. I know many people look forward to Dejay Shaun running an evening of musical entertainment.

Dejay Shaun is in the house…

As a Doorman back as far as 2014 and even before that by a few years, I remember the customers being excited when Dejay Shaun was on, I can recall Shaun was always honest and just said what was on his mind. Even when we went out for a couple of drinks, his honesty and straight forward views made one relax and there was no beating around the bush. Dejay Shaun was a fun guy and up for many things including joining us on the back of a lorry for parades like the local Gala in 2016

http://project2020.bognor259.com/may/dj_shaun_pearcey.php

How long have I known Dejay Shaun Pearcey ?
I know we got Dejay Shaun on the back of a lorry. Seriously that was the Gala in 2014, in fact I am sure I knew Dejay Shaun way back in 2012 so about 8 years I guess. As a Doorman back then I remember the customers being excited when Dejay Shaun was on, I can recall Shaun was always honest and just said what was on his mind.

One short clip which shows DJ Shaun & I where at the 2014 Gala.

Dejay Shaun was a fun guy and up for many things including joining us on the back of a lorry for parades like the local Gala in 2014, since 2007 till 2020 I have been involved in many public events. You can count on Dejay Shaun to deliver solid musical entertainment where ever it needs to be.

It would be hard to sum Dejay Shaun in a few words or even in one post like this but, I know other people who would turn up for evenings at a venue or an event would be excited and look forward to such times with Dejay Shaun running the event, myself included.

http://livestream.bognor259.com/

I include the ‘LIVE STREAM ENTERTAINMENT NETWORK’ link here because it is a good way to support the NHS & Musical Entertainment which Dejay Shaun is one of the main contributors.
