What’s this? A contest?!?

That’s right, I am having my first contest here. All you have to do is share this website (not just this post) on all of your social media sites. When you are finished, just type in the comments “Done” and list which sites you posted to. That’s it! Then, on February 8, a winner will be chosen at random. Simple, right?

So what’s the prize? Well I will tell you! I am giving away a brand new copy of the excellent book “The Spirits of Christmas: The Dark Side of the Holidays” by Sylvia Shults!

I started watching wrestling in the late 70s. Every Saturday morning after cartoons I would go back and forth between matches on the World Wrestling Federation (WWF) program and World Class Championship Wrestling (WCCW), out of Texas. Though I enjoyed the WWF programming at this time, rarely would you see a main event match. These shows would set up feuds and matches that would come to an arena near you. On the other hand, WCCW often showed main event matches and were often more realistic and at times, featured blood.



Well another Halloween has come and gone and it certainly was a strange one! Like a lot of things these days, everything had to be reinvented. From trick or treating to parties and to yard displays, everyone had to think outside of the box to meet regulations and restrictions. Because of restrictions here in Rhode Island my girlfriend and I were not able to have our annual Halloween party so decided to decorate for the trick or treaters. Since we have a roundabout driveway, we thought it was be a good idea to make it a drive-thru.

Though the road we live on is very busy, last year we did not get any trick or treaters so were taking a risk, especially with the state of the world. We put a sign out advertising what we were doing and it actually worked. We had some very appreciative guests! I figured I would share what we came up with. ENJOY!

2020 has been a year to forget and for most, cannot end quick enough. It’s one of those years where everything is going wrong. Republicans and Democrats are fighting constantly, sometimes even violently. A pandemic that was supposedly under control is on the rise again. Many people are out of work, wondering how they are going to make ends meet. Businesses are closing down at an alarming rate. There is no way that anyone can stand back and say that this year was a good one.




Welcome to David’s Basement of the Bizarre. This site is a definite work in progress, not only in the look of the site but also in the material covered. Anyone that knows me knows that I have a wide variety of interests in my life, most of which are not commonplace and may even be considered well, bizarre. This site is dedicated to these bizarre interests because I know there are many of you out there that share these interests as well. Though I plan on doing movie and book reviews, I will also cover things like cryptozoology, flying saucers, monsters, toys, tv shows and anything else that excites me. If you are an author or publisher and would like me to review your book and it fits into the theme of David’s Basement of the Bizarre, then please contact me! This also goes for toy manufacturers, movie companies, stores, etc. I am always looking for ideas and things to talk about so please do not hesitate to write and let me know what you have or would like me to talk about!
