So today I launhed a Patreon... and if you wish to donate to the Basement, visit: https://www.patreon.com/fredcasden
Yes I know that's the question no one answer... why am I coming to Patreon now? Well it's like this, I do have a day-gig, and I'm viewing Patreon as a way to add onto that, it's really that simple.
I don't intend to be one of those creators who are looking to have their entire income based around people donating to them when they barely produce anything and what they produce is of barely a higher quality than what I do on a daily basis
To me, Patreon is a tool that could help make the daily content I make for my pokey little YouTube channel better by eventually getting better equipment and software, learning to do more than just the basics of putting together a video.
Of course that's just a pipe dream, it took me over a year to figure out how to add freaking cards to the end of my videos!
Anyway, here's the rough idea of what I got planned for my pokey little YouTube Channel in the coming week.

Hello Dwellers and Welcome To Comics From The Basement…
Comic Books that act as an expanded universe for a franchise seen only on TV, Video Games or Movies are pretty cool in my book.
They get to either bring back characters and concepts that were one and done, which provides familiarity and acts like a gateway to get non-comic readers a reason to pick up a comic. Which is the case of this weeks comic: Star Trek The Next Generation #36…
And yeah, I’ve had this copy for years since I don’t have the back cover any more and am Iucky to still have the front cover.
But as you can tell from the cover, it features the return of Ardra.
For those of you who may not know: Ardra was the antagonist in the season four episode, ‘Devil’s Due’, where the Enterprise-D responds to a distress call from a planet that was being tormented by a person claiming to be their Devil. Ardra in actuality is a con-woman who uses her knowledge of the planet’s culture along with devices like transporters, holograms a…
Obviously I'm speaking as a wrestling fan on this.
Back in the late 1990s, I thought wrestlers who did dives were really cool, after all, they were doing stuff that was dangerous, and never seemed to get hurt. I heard repeatedly (primarily on WCW Monday Nitro) 'that's why they call it high risk' when guys landed badly or missed the mark, and looked like they may have injured themselves.... but it was just wrestling, and obviously they were 'selling a planned spot'.
Then 2001 came around... and a reality check was given, Hayabusa ended up in a wheel chair in October when a high risk stunt that he probably done a hundred times before went wrong, and one can easily see when looking back, it was bound to happen sooner or later, Hayabusa was doing enough dives and high spots for himself and whoever he was working with, and I really liked him when I got to see footage of what he could do, but one could see he was living …
