Thanks for posting this, Fran.  I miss Henry's uniquely "artistic" comments and his wonderfully insane genius.

I hope he's happy and having a wonderful day.

The Mysterious Artist rules!

And so, of course, does our darling Mysterious Benefactor.

Hi Onyx Treasure, you are correct that the I Ching is traditionally understood as a divinatory system.  The Eight Trigrams, whose origins are lost in the mists of antiquity (to coin a phrase!), were combined to create 64 hexagrams.  Each of the hexagrams has a name and an image associated with it, and each of the 6 lines within each hexagram has a subtle divinatory significance.  Like the Tarot, the I Ching can also be viewed as a sort of map for personal spiritual development.  Interestingly, a text entitled the Great Preface, which found its way into the body of material attached to the hexagrams, describes the 64 images in language that basically states that they contain all the processes of time and space, creation and destruction, within them.  Therefore, it is just barely conceivable that a magickal practicioner in mediaeval China could have used them in a manner similar to that employed by Barnabas Collins in 1969 on Dark Shadows.

Oh RP you know I adore Magda and her "Geeepsee carrrds ... older than thee Tarot!"  But if you think Magda and Sandor are bad, try watching an episode of F Troop.  It's amazing the network wasn't sued by a Native American anti-discrimination group.  Really appalling stuff.

Current Talk '02 II / Re: Who screams better--Sabrina or Julia?
« on: October 23, 2002, 06:51:46 PM »
Dear Rod,  Julia's definitely at the top of my list as all time favorite DS screamer, though the two snapshots of Sabrina screaming selected by our beloved Mysterious Benefactor for today's montage certainly are enough to make one's manhood quail.  Especially the one where Sabrina is wearing that spooky, cobwebby looking wig.  Brrrr!  Makes me think of that mid Sixties cult no-budget shocker, Spider Baby.  Or a movie by sleaze maven Andy Milligan--I definitely recommend the book The Ghastly One for a fascinating portrait of the sleazy underbelly of late Sixties NYC underground film.

Best wishes,

Gothick

Bob, I'm clearly way out of the loop (and it's my own fault for not attending DS fan events in such a long time).  You now have a Partridge Family act?  Got any photos of yourself in Keith Partridge gear?  Please don't tell me that you play "Danny."  I can imagine the lovely ladies who play Shirley and Laurie.

Can't wait to hear more about your gigs!

I met someone last year who had a bus with the Partridge Family colored panels painted on it.

Dom doll, I just love reading your posts!  I have some Supremes-iana sitting here to mail to you.  Maybe you'll get it in time for Halloween.  No trick doll, just a treat.

Oh, I think Q was definitely aiming for Rachel Drummond.  In the "original" 1897 storyline, Q had the hots for Miss D.  One of the rewrites of the story involved killing RD off because KLS wanted to go on safari with her boyfriend for a month.  Poor, clueless Rachel.  

Hope all is well there.  I think of you now EVERY morning when I leave the house because the next door neighbor is rebuilding his front porch (plus doing something complicated to the windws). He has this radio set to an oldies station, and this a.m. it was playing Come see about me.  A week or two ago I think it was playing Can't hurry love, and there have been other Supremes songs playing as well.  I'm still waiting for my fave--Stop! in the Name of Love.

Has anyone heard from Denise Nickerson lately?  I always remember seeing her at a Halloween event that was organized at the Lockwood Mathews House in Connecticut several years ago.  

That is nice about the birthday cake for Miss Parker.  It sounds like a fun event.  I love seeing Terrayne Crawford--she has such marvelous energy.  And it's always fun to see what Diana's been up to.

I loved reading through these.  I think for myself, the scenes that most impressed me were the early ones between himself and Joan Bennett.  He really brought out the best in her, and I think she also stimulated him to go for the gold.  They were marvelous on screen together, and I'm glad we did get a second chance to watch them go at it again during the Paul Stoddard storyline.

Seeing how wonderful he was opposite Bennett makes me want to see the film he did with Agnes Moorehead in the early 70s--her final project, which I believe was released after her death (ironically it was the only movie in which she received star billing).

Nothing born of woman could possibly be more annoying than Ned Stuart and still live to see the light of day.

I am happy to say I have yet to witness the shrieking, writhing horror that is the latest Dell promotion onslaught.

Happy waxing Moon to you all,

Thanks for that reminder, Fran.  These sentiments seem kind of odd from Mr. Nahmod, if he's a fan himself.

You just have to wonder.

That name, David Nahmod, is familiar for some reason or other.  Have you run across him in the past, Joe?

It's too bad the 30th anniversary video was singled out by this character.  It's probably the best produced of all the MPI specialty videos--certainly the best of the ones I have seen.

Best wishes,  Steve

I'd say not.  It would be expensive, the end result would probably be rather tacky looking (though some of the Dr. Who tapes from the BBC show that it can look OK--check out the Daemons for a good example), and a lot of fans enjoy those shows just the way they are.

Watching them is also a helpful reminder of how incredibly lucky we are to have all but one of the episodes surviving in some form or other.

Wow, Connie, these are yummilicious!  Thanks a million!

I'm particularly fond of the shot in the upper left hand corner.
