The Network Dream



Hey guys, whats going on. My name is Josh, and im going to make this blog post about my particular dream with creating a network. For those of you who don’t know, I am the co-creator of the Kaned Productions YouTube channel, which is a gaming channel focused on providing a wide array of gaming content, including lots of indie games.

Although at this current moment in time, we have a long way to go before I can even begin transforming KP into more than just a gaming network, their has been non the less an underlying dream I have developed over the past 9 years of online life.

I am a very passionate musician, and create lots of my own music as well as being in a band called Entity Unknown, which leads me to the first phase of the dream which includes creating a music studio, designed for all types of indie artists. I hope that through creating a music studio at some point, that it could help boost the current pool of indie musicians into the spotlight and help them become more accepted in the music industry. obviously, this would have to be a long ways down the road, but none the less, it is defiantly apart of my dream.

I also love animation, and story creating (which is a helpful mix) even though I may not be the best at animation (yet) I plan on developing my ability to the fullest in hopes of creating an animation series, which has been one of the major dreams in my life. I hope to one day eventually turn KP into a producing company (hence the productions).

I also want to get involved with digital news. I believe that the issues facing the world today are extremely dire, and I also believe the best way to get the young people of today involved with the politics and social aspects of governance. I want to help inspire a generation of positive change in the world. The internet is the garden where we can finally plant the seeds of truth, so that we can create a hopeful environment for the future generations instead of allowing the current media corporations world wide to distract you from the real issues facing humanity, like wealth inequality, poverty, health care, climate change, and the abuse of human rights.

I want to be able to start a non-profit organization that supports helping those in need, while defending those who need hope. People who are in place as popular figures today are great people, but most do not realize that their influence could change lives forever. I want to inspire everyone to realize that we are all connected (by 5 degrees of separation) and that change happens when you are the one who stands for it.

So although it is not all of the things I want to accomplish, this is the current outline of some of the “Network Dream” that I have. I hope that this dream can one day become a reality, as the internet is a beautiful place to flourish.


Sun Halo Photo

“I’m often asked about how I took this picture when I show it to my peers. People tell me it looks like it was photo shopped, or edited in some sort. The truth is that this mystically epic photo was taken on a warm summers day while I was at work. What had started as a really hot and sunny day, turned into a really light and bright fog, which allowed a sun halo to form while we were outside. Me being me said ‘hey this might make a cool album picture one day’ so I took the photo with me standing under it. It was truly a beautiful phenomenon, and it was the first time I had ever seen and/or heard of it in my life, and it is now pictured forever in my mind, and in the internet (as I have made this one of my band (Entity Unknown) pictures.”
