https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-e4hys-937d12

Welcome to another Monday episode of The Dark Web Daily Show for Monday, June 18, 2018. This episode is another Monday. Fighting off the Monday blues, not enough sleep, so my voice isn’t all that strong today, sorry.

The episode has some good topics though. I get into the breaking news this morning of Donald Trump instructing the Pentagon to create a new branch of the U.S. Military, a Space Force. Some other headlines discussed include Netflix hiring ‘Nerds’, Yahoo Instant Messenger finaly shutting down, and Facebook still trying to get into local news.

Music today is the motion picture soundtrack to the iconic 80’s film Top Gun. Movie discussion is Jurassic World 2 my thoughts on the previous films and growing interest in possibly seeing this movie in theaters maybe.

Video game memories center around 80’s arcade/Atari 2600 classic Moon Patrol.

This marks the first episode of week 2 of the reformatted Dark Web Daily Show. I am hoping to keep this going for the next few weeks while I decide how it will work out. Thanks to everyone who has listened so far, please consider subscribing so you don’t miss an episode and be sure to leave a comment.

The Dark Web Podcast 28- E3 thoughts, Father’s Day tribute to my dad, and ranting about Wii U ports to Switch again

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-t6e3f-936930

Here you go internet, a special Father’s Day look at the man who made me. His name is Harley and he has worked hard his entire life. Tribute inside (oh and BTW he’s still a live so don’t worry)

I take on the annoying Nintendo fans who continue to defend porting Wii U games to Switch as proof of support. Newsflash, using games that weren’t good enough to sell the Wii U to appease Switch fans is not the best. Are ports bad, no and some of these were good games, but falling into the trap of saying they are “new to you” when first, not so I had a Wii U, and that’s a lame Nintendo fanboy argument they tried whenever a 5 year old game gets ported to their console and feign excitment over it. Not me. If I already played  a game on Playstation 4, 5, 7 or more years ago, hell no I am not going to get excited that game is coming to a Nintendo console. If Nintendo could get thier shit together they’d have those games when they get released the same time as everyone else.

 

I dig through all the good news of E3 and push past the news that doesn’t interest me. Nothing of note from Xbox and Sony’s got remakes, yawn. The best of E3 was Smash Ultimate and Super Mario Party.

 

I try to find a reason to even care a new Halloween film is coming but as I analyze the previous films and compare them to the infinitely superior Friday the 13th series I lose interest. I don’t think it counts as a boycott when you say a movie just doesn’t interest you. So I take a stand I won’t see the new one. Hey to be fair I only just watched the previous films last year so I can honestly say Halloween is NOT my franchise. Sorry fanboys it’s not for me. I’ll take Jason or Freddy over whatshisname anyday. I guess ever since Austin Powers I can’t find a killer named Michael Myers scary. Especially when he walks around wearing a Willia Shatner mask. Sorry, not sorry it’t not for me.

Dark Web Daily- Pilot Monday June 11, 2018

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-bhett-930727

Alright here it is my first attempt at a daily show. This new format is going to be called the Dark Web Daily Show. Think of it as a radio-friendly, broadcast style show. There will be more traditional segments, headlines and it will be more organized. The normal, unfiltered, unscripted show will still be uploaded on weekends.

Today’s episode is a full one. Headlines include: North Korea summitt, NBA Finals, celebrity suicides/mental health topics, DC films updates their schedule, E3 coverage so far and Gamestop selling comic books.

Each episode will containt a movie, music and video game topic plus headlines, social commentary and a few surprises. Ever Monday will be a segment called New Music Monday where I discuss a new band, album, or song I recently discovered. It will mostly be “new to me” but I might dabble in actual new music too.

The rest of the week the music segment will be my recommendations. Each day I will pick a CD, tape or other work from my collection and discuss it.

Today’s New Music topic was Dirty Johny. They are a local band in the Southern Idaho region who opened for rock legend Vince Neil of Motley Crue. I got to photograph him performing Dr. Feelgood Saturday night live in concert.

Be sure to check back daily as new episodes will upload Monday through Friday in a 1-hour talk news style show. Then on the weekends you will get the unfiltered, unrated raw Dark Web Podcast you’ve all come to love. The Dark Web Daily Show will be radio friendly, meaning you can enjoy it while at work. The podcast will remain the same as always.

The Dark Web Podcast Episode 27- Conspiracy theories!, plus E3 thoughts, predictions, and the digital future?

https://www.podbean.com/media/share/pb-2n73b-92f4ed

Every once in a while I will be making a case against something and midway through my argument realize I was changing my mind. I do this in this weeks episode. I tackled the all digital future of video games. I compared it to the all streaming/broadcasting model of Television and rag on the telecom companies being blamed for lack of high speed internet.

I tackle a few conspiracy theories just for fun. First up, is Michelle Obama really a man? Did 2Pac fake is death or was he murdered by his peers and they covered it up?

Aliens, 9/11, the moon, Mars, dinos vs. dragons and the hot topic of spiritual forces/supernatural powers.

 

THIS WEEK SOMETHING NEW! I am switching to a 1 hour a day five day a week format with a 2 hour episode on Saturdays.

 

The format will be more like a traditional radio show. The 5 day weekday shows will be a normal format and then the Saturday shows will continue to be the unscripted, unfiltered format you’ve all come to enjoy. I am hoping this new format will inspire more creativity.
