We'll take a look at the front page first, in the video, I did a total read through of this, but some of the text is faded and its creased obviously in some points.  The big points of interest are that Joe Cox is on a hot streak, is looking to stay on top and in his last bout, knocked out the referee! Yes there was a ref bump! Also a lot of promoters have been looking to book him vs Leo Numa, and it was considered a big deal to get the match to headline the upcoming show.

Also of interest is the hype for the women's bout between Women's Champion Mildred Burke and Cowgirl Patsy Miller, who is put over as being a tough conten…

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

Sometimes it doesn't occur to me to save the image I use on the title cards of my videos... and I'm going to try and make effort to do so from this point forward in cases where I don't use the same image repeatedly.

The OA: Invisible Self

Hello Dwellers and Welcome to the Basement...

I'm wrapping up my look at the Netflix Original Series 'The OA' tonight, with episode 8, titled Invisible Self... because I had to see how it ended after watching episodes 6 and 7 earlier!

Well that was a big left turn with the final episode in the season, with doubts raised about everything! Opening with Prairie finishing her story and then everyone in town showing up in the house, seeing her with Ms. BBA, Jesse, Steve, Buck and French… seeing French discover books in the Johnson’s house that make him believe everything Prairie said was made up… plus truths like Prairie left a note and Nancy hiding it from Able because of her greed to be loved… and the conclusion… revealing that all five movements were in fact important to help Prairie cross over but not in the way we would’ve thought.
