It’s another Valentine’s Day

Every year this holiday arrives when I am in the busiest part of my life. I don’t always have time to sit back and enjoy or even take time to find someone to spend it with. More often than not I ignore it and go on with my life. This year I am trying something different. Even though I am perfectly content being single and enjoying my life as it currently is, I am going to get a little into the spirit and do something special for the day. I am planning on recording a very special episode of my podcast, The Dark Web Podcast, centered exclusively on the holiday.

I am planning on sharing some personal memories, mostly the positive ones, along with my favorite romantic themed movies, songs, and other related topics. I am not expecting it to be the most fun episode but I am planning on giving it my best.

My only other plans for the day include working and finding the time to maybe say hi to some friends on social media I hope will appreciate the sentiment. Other than that this is it for me. I am contemplating watching some Girl Meets World on Netflix, maybe they will have a Valentine’s Day themed episode I can browse.

I don’t actually celebrate the holiday. Not for religious reasons as I am new to the Catholic faith and not fully vested in it yet. I am also not into the secular implications of the day, it is mostly another day to buy gifts for your sweetheart, which I am currently lacking. I don’t let it depress me or bother me, I save all those feelings for my birthday or the day after Thanksgiving when my heartburn damn near debilitates me.

The only reason I am giving it a small shot this year is because I am trying to push past some of my previous negative feelings towards the social events i often neglect or avoid. The best part of this, for me, is the personal growth. I am struggling with becoming a better person. The idea is for me to find ways to be more fulfilled in life. At the very least I want to be more approachable if not completely more sociable. I consider it a small step in the right direction. As such I will put this out there, hopefully everyone will have a Happy Valentine’s Day this year. Stay cool.

No more themed weeks on The Spiders Lair :(

I recently began experimenting with the idea of doing a theme week for my content keeping all videos in the same theme. This worked for a couple weeks with Christmas videos, Pet Week, and then it began to fizzle out as my creativity was stifled as I had to try to make videos fit into the theme. It quickly became daunting to come up with a central theme each week so that also became an issue.

The central videos I produce on the channel are 5 for 5 Likes/Dislikes and This or That. I used to try to do What’s Streaming pretty regularly but I have since ran out of ideas for that and it felt too much like work. I do intend to bring it back, but with a single focus each week, one channel, one video or one creator I want to show case, as I originally did it. Not this TV Guide crap I dabbled in the past few weeks. I couldn’t make it work within the context of the individual theme for each week which is a major contributing factor to why I put the series on temporary hiatus. I DO expect to get back to producing them THIS week. I have a specific creator in mind I want to show case. Be sure to check back often and please like, share and subscribe to any content you find I produce you enjoy. Stay Cool.
