There's another great old fashioned american diner in downtown Sleepy Hollow/Tarrytown called The Horseman, with the obvious theme. They have great sandwiches and breakfast as well. We've eaten there 4-5 times on DS trips.

I received a new email from at Majestic Toys dated 1/27/06, in which he states: Michael,
The Dark Shadows figures will be shipping out in the next 10 days.

I also had asked if Majestic would be attending the DS convention, but he wasn't aware yet and didn't know what the dates were. I replied to give him the dates so we'll see what happens.

I think a lot of the Tarrytown fest dpended on whether you had a car or not. They dodn't have great lunch service available. Again, I need to warn first time attendees, that DS conventions are designed for people who don't have meals betweem 9:00 am and 9:00 pm  :-X. Really, Tarrytown had a nice diner down the street, and we drove up one side of the Hudson river up to West Point and then back down. (Diane was born on Poughkepsie so we got to that show a day early to make the drive.)  But if you didn't have a car, other than the great pool and hot tub, it would have bit the big one. The Brooklyn Marriott has some good places to eat nearby. There's one street full of nice international restaurants about 2 blocks over,  [banana] [chkyb] [chkyg] [chkyy]  and the next block over had some take outs and Subway. The Brooklyn Marriott has a nice restaurant, but at Marriott prices, meaning breakfast about $20 per person. Nice for one day but pricey on day 3. Then again, there's the subway to Manhattan.There's also a nice pool and gym at the Brooklyn.

Charity: Tim, I'm sorry to interrupt, but I think it would be more fun if we read "Lady Chatterly's Lover" together, don't you?  :o

Two posts in row of references I don't get... sheep-bladders?  Larry and Vivien?   Olivier?   Tate?   The Logger?    What name did the bladders go by?
Since Wille has answered what sheep's bladder's were used for in the 18th century, (I think I read Giacomo Casanova had a special carrying case), Larry and Vivien refers to Sir/Lord Laurence Olivier and then wife Vivien Leigh.  I thought Louis looked especially Olivier-like here.

Current Talk '06 I / Re: What's that statue?
« on: January 29, 2006, 10:11:27 PM »
From what I can tell, it actually appears to be a shirtless man shoveling. I've actually ran the videos slow to get a better look at it a while back, and that's my best college Art History judgement. The style is pretty rugged, rather Rodin with a touch of say Remington. Probably heavy cast bronze. It doesn't seem to tie in with the family specifically, like say those nautical paintings in Roger's office or that clipper show model that floats around the house (all puns intended). I think its just to illustate this is a wealthy family who can afford a nice pricey objet d'art.

My favorite "blooper"/camera revelation that's not on the official blooper tape is during a Paralle Time episode. They are running the credits over PT Angelique's East Wing room, and some crew member is squatted down having lunch having a sandwich. He just sits there chewing away,  [ltng]  and finally it seems like someone notices,  [director] and they pan in tighter to put him out of the screen corner.  If they expand the bloopers on DVD like they've been saying they will for years, they really need to add this one.

Looks a bit like Roger Davis as "Peter Bradford" here too.

One of my favorite "camera revelations" was at one point during the Leviathan story, when someone, Barnabas or Elizabeth I think, is having this psychedelic dream. This is the dream where David does part of the "skinny and fatty had a race" poem, and they try to do this kaleidoscopic business and at one point you see some object, probaly a camera appartus with the ABC logo. Cracked me up.  [flower]

It reminds me as well of a rather odd thing that wasn't on screen, but the first time I went to Lyndhurst, which was on a DS sponsored trio in 1996, I saw an umbrella with that same vintage ABC logo in the stairwell. I assume its probaly some fan's little icon, but , well it seemed almost like a "ghost umbrella" at the time.  [ghosty]
