Calendar Events / Announcements '18 / DS alum on "Dietland"
« on: July 25, 2018, 09:18:25 PM »
Dietland (series written by Marti Noxon, based on Sarai Walker's novel) isn't for everybody, but if you're intrigued by female-centric issues of dating, power, misogyny, self-love, all that's wrong with the beauty industry, rape, and extreme radicalism, then you should check it out at AMC On Demand.  Currently, #1 through the penultimate episode are available, with #10 airing next week.  And the bonus for DS fans is that Kelly Hu plays a fascinating minor character-- a brainy "trophy wife"-- that I hope we get to see more of should the series be renewed.

Unfortunately, another minor recurring character is played by Marc Blucas, lol.

Detective Bell considers leaving the NYPD when he is recommended for a once-in-a-lifetime career opportunity.

I hadn't heard that he's leaving the show, but his storyline now seems to be moving in that direction.  Does anyone know?

Uncle Roger, that is so messed up!

I really hope somebody out there is fundraising for the medical bills separately from the link posted in the article I looked at yesterday. The fundraiser was closed and the amount raised was only around $2500 or less. Which is a drop in the bucket for typical hospital bills in the US.

The only way to donate at this time is directly to Jasmine through PayPal:

Magnus, I'm happy to learn that you've found that person again-- someone I believe to be intelligent and creative, and REALLY funny.  Your humor has cheered me up on many occasions.  And it's never toxic like others' humor can be on other areas of social media, thank god.  So, I guess I'm trying to say that while you're grateful for the Forums, I'm thankful you're on them too. ♥

Thanks, Gothick.  Her DIL wrote that Denise is awake and responsive, breathing on her own and currently not needing the feeding tube, following simple commands, and purposefully moving her right leg [her stroke was on the left side of her brain, which impacts the right side of the body].  Very good news!

173
Please keep Denise in your thoughts and prayers, who is very ill following a massive stroke.  She is currently sedated and on a ventilator.  Her son and daughter-in-law have been updating her condition via Denise's and Jasmine's Facebook pages, and the couple sounds just terribly overwhelmed.  They've set up a page for donations to help with the mounting costs of care, treatment and housing.

Support for Josh and Jasmine Nickerson

Belated Happy Birthday

After nearly two years in production, SHADOWGRAM is pleased to report that the new documentary, titled “MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS,” is in the final stages of completion.
 
The documentary explores and chronicles all aspects of DARK SHADOWS and the life and talents of its creator, DAN CURTIS. It also examines the background history, creation, production, impact, and ongoing appeal to original, rediscovering, and new fans of all ages and backgrounds worldwide. There are many new and perceptive interviews, personal reminiscences, and commentary from those involved with the show then and now, industry and media personnel, and more.
 
As recent SHADOWGRAM Updates previously announced, the MPI-Dan Curtis Productions-Severin Films project will receive special screenings. These will be held in Los Angeles and New York later this year in association with the Dark Shadows Festival. DARK SHADOWS cast/crew members and other participants will be in attendance. SHADOWGRAM Updates will announce details as they are determined in the coming weeks.
 
“MASTER OF DARK SHADOWS” also will receive a BluRay and DVD release from MPI, in addition to other distribution platforms in the future.
 
 
**** KATHRYN LEIGH SCOTT TO APPEAR AT TEXAS CONVENTION
 
KATHRYN (Maggie, Josette, Rachel, Kitty) shares: “I will be at the Greater Austin Comic Con June 16-17. See you there!”  www.greateraustincomiccon.com
 
 
**** PREMIERING LATEST NEWS #2: NEW DS MERCHANDISE AVAILABLE SOON
 
SHADOWGRAM provides the latest confirmed news about exciting, upcoming DS merchandise:
 
---- The long-awaited, first-ever “MUSICAL DS COLLINWOOD SNOW GLOBE” from MPI is currently in manufacturing. It features a detailed model of the iconic Collinwood mansion and will play “Quentin’s Theme” / “Shadows of the Night.” The finished product is expected to be available this summer. SHADOWGRAM will report developments as they are set.
 
Among other new DS items also underway:
 
----- Recent SHADOWGRAM UPDATEs reported there will be “Talking Barnabas Collins” ceramic figure which will “speak” dialogue from the original daytime TV series. The words will be spoken by Jonathan Frid in character as the iconic vampire. SHADOWGRAM will update about the figure and provide ordering details once they are finalized.

 
---- HERMES PRESS DS COMIC STRIP BOOK
 
After publishing 6 deluxe volumes of the vintage 1968-76 Gold Key/Whitman DARK SHADOWS color comic book and Story Digest reprints, Hermes Press now will be offering a new, special hardbound book with the complete 1971-1972 DS daily newspaper comic strips, including full-color reproductions for the expanded Sunday editions. The strip ran for a year in newspapers across the country.
 
The strips, beautifully drawn by Kenneth Bald, feature high-quality artwork drawings of Barnabas Collins with a perfect resemblance to Jonathan Frid.
 
Advance copies of the DS comic strip book will debut at Comic Con in San Diego, CA, July 19-22. These will contain bookplates autographed by Lara Parker, who appears as Angelique in the strips. Other DS TV series characters depicted are Elizabeth and Carolyn, along with a number of characters unique to the strip. A new historical essay by longtime fan and comics expert Dr. Jeff Thompson is included.
 
General ordering information will follow soon in upcoming SHADOWGRAM OFFICIAL DS NEWS ONLINE UPDATES.

 
**** LYNDHURST ESTATE (DS FILMING LOCATION) TOPS AOL.COM LISTOF “AMERICA’S GRANDEST HISTORICAL HOMES”
 
During this final week of May, AOL.COM headline news stories featured striking color photos illustrating an appreciative listing of “The Grandest Historical Homes in America.”
 
The overall headline read “Experience the Grandest Historic Homes in the U.S.” Cited as #1, the opening photo on the AOL news page was Lyndhurst in Tarrytown, NY.
 
http://definition.org/grand-historical-homes-america/?spadid=703376&utm_source=aol&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=def_us_d_aol_42212_18601&utm_content=703376&spcid=86dca9262f90919edaf6ecaf386b3380

The impressive mansion’s interiors, exteriors, outbuildings, and the estate’s sprawling landscaped grounds were used as “Collinwood” for on-location filming of both DS major motion pictures: MGM’s 1970’s HOUSE OF DARK SHADOWS and 1971’s NIGHT OF DARK SHADOWS. Each marked the first times any theatrical movies were based in a daytime TV series.
 
AOL Lyndhurst description: “Lyndhurst mansion, also known as the Jay Gould estate, was built in 1838 in the style of Gothic Revival along the Hudson River. Lyndhurst has been occupied by notable New Yorkers since its construction, and today visitors can stroll through the estate’s gardens and halls…. Photo A1. Lyndhurst: Tarrytown, New York”
 
The photo, taken 9-26-17, shows Lyndhurst in autumn with lofty, full trees cloaked in shades of green and brilliant fall colors bracketing the mansion’s iconic front entry.
 
Lyndhurst has also been a filming location for various movies and more. The mansion, grounds, outbuildings, and local area are open to the public. The mansion itself is open for interior tours that showcase 19th century tycoon Jay Gould’s original furnishings, art collection, and special features. In addition, Lyndhurst hosts many historic, local history, creative arts & crafts, educational, music, gardening, seasonal, and other events held virtually year-round.
 
Official website:  lyndhurst.org/
“Lyndhurst Mansion: Overlooking the Hudson River in Tarrytown, New York, is Lyndhurst, one of America's iconic Gothic Revival mansions.”
 
Tarrytown is about 25 miles north of Manhattan, easily accessible by train from NYC direct to the Tarrytown train station (a short taxi ride to Lyndhurst), and also by car on North Route 9.
 
Over the years, a number of DS FESTIVAL fan/cast/crew convention events have been held in Tarrytown, focusing on Lyndhurst, which is within walking distance of the center of town. A short drive away is historic Sleepy Hollow Cemetery in the town of Sleepy Hollow, also a filming location for both DS movies.
 
AOL explanation: “These informative, entertaining, and downright awe-inspiring buildings are an easy and stunning alternative to other expensive family vacations…within driving distance” of cities across the U.S. “Seeing historic American homes is a great alternative to boring, cliche family vacations. Why spend your time off observing an unimpressive geyser when you can walk through the halls that once housed Mark Twain, Ernest Hemingway, and Cornelius Vanderbilt (among many others)...?. We put together a list of the grandest historic homes in America.”

Calendar Events / Announcements '18 / Re: KLS Festival Remarks
« on: May 31, 2018, 12:21:18 AM »
does anyone follow KLS's personal Facebook page?

this weekend she's put out a statement on potential future festivals or lack thereof. she says nothing's been planned for the year (which we pretty much knew) but curiouser and curiouser claims she is not in tough with Jim Pierson at all and is urging US the fans to "reach out to him" directly to plead the case.

It's my guess, michael c, that Pierson told her himself that he's just not interested.  She's been asking around for a while to find someone else that might take over and apparently finally decided to take it public via Facebook.  So yea, she's in touch with him.  And unhappy.

There will be something intimate for the documentary release, but I've resigned myself to having seen the last big event.

OMG, watch Godfather Pts I and II immediatamente!!!

If I had to guess, I would say Michael auditioned for Paulie.

Yes ("that stronz")!
