in this episode of the dark web podcast I talked about what it was like gettibg a Nintendo Entertainment System 30 years ago for Christmas. I bought one recently for nostalgia sake. I asked a question is Snoop Doggy Dogg's CD doggystyle still good. I probably talked about this in the past but it was on my mind again. I talked about the XFL, Big 3 basketball, and MTV celebrity deathmatch. I also reminisce through the G1 Transformers toy memories from my past as I contemplate the Bumblebee movie. I talk about other stuff stay cool.
Dark Web Dec 1- Official Video Games canon, ST:TNG S1 thoughts, Back to the Future Trilogy and more!
I talk about stuff, lots of stuff too much to probably remember it all.
I did tackle my thoughts on what an official Video Game Canon would entail.
I also take on Star Trek: The Next Generation season 1. From there the show is all over the place thanks to some off the wall comments by Elon Musk and some other stuff.
I recorded this on Friday BEFORE I learned about the passing of George H.W. Bush so those thoughts will have to wait until next episode.
I also talk about The Breakfast Club in which I get a little personal as the movie had tremendous personal meaning to me as a teen.
I also rummage through the Back to the Future Trilogy, which ones I liked, what I thought, do they hold up today?

The Dark Web 43- revisting Batman film franchise, Halloween/horror video games, Ice-T arrested and more
In this exciting episode I rag on Ice-T getting arrested. Or at least I talk about how "gangsta" he is these days.
I take another look at the Batman film franchise for Halloween fun.
Are there any good Horror or Halloween themed video games? I try to find a few good ones.
I talk about the new Sabrina show on Netflix. I will be talking about it more next week.
I also ask the question, what would it have been like if 32X had been more successful? (Sorry RGT 85 I recorded this before I saw your video. I might have to respond to your take next week)
With some new information this week coming to light involving network infrastructure, connections, etc., I take another look at the future of Netflix as a streaming service and contemplate if they might be better off turning into a TV studio/Production studio and licensing their content out to others with the onslaught of competition coming their way.
I also lay out some of my Halloween plans so be sure to check back Wednesday night for something special. Stay cool. Thanks for listening, please share subscribe etc.
Once again the length it shows me is wrong, it's just barely over 2 hours yet Podbean shows it at 3 and a half hours. not sure what is going on.
*NOTE* This episode is NOT 4 hours long. I don't know why Podbean is showing it that long it's longer than normal, just under 3 hours to be fair, but it's not as long as I am seeing maybe you all see the correct length. Don't be turned off by that it's a hearty episode.
Before there was The Spiders Lair there was Bim Dizzle. In this extra special, extra long episode I kind of bear my soul a little as I take a look back at the evolution of this website from a hobby site I began in high school devoted entirely to Gangsta Rap and Star Wars (yes it was a weird blended site) to a dedicated video game strategy guide site supplanted by YouTube and it's Let's Players. Then it turned into Bim-Dizzle, a website I had a vision for but no direction.
Find out the inspiration for the Bim Dizzle character, what the idea was, the goal, the downfall.
I reveal my confession to my audience. There's actually two. A semi-serious but light hearted one up front then the real deal later on.
I also talk about favorite Halloween movies and specials. I also talk about the John Carpenter Halloween franchise and all that Michael Myers jazz.
It was a long weekend at work. I had to work Saturday and Sunday so if I sound a little off near the end please not I was really exhausted by that point in time and I had more work to do the next day.
This is unedited. I usually only edit it for time, to take out the long pauses or maybe a gaff here and there if I get tongue tied, as is often the case. Since the whole show is unscripted, well you get the idea.
I also talk about the death of Netflix. I am officially predicting it now. Find out why in this extra special episode of The Dark Web Podcast, brought to you by The Spiders Lair and hosted by THE RAT.
