"Barbnabus" takes the cake as the ugliest misspelling ever (to date) of the name Barnabas.  Ouch!

And what the hell is the ancient Egyptian Goddess Sekhmet doing in a flock of vampires?  She was actually described in the texts as an "avenging eye of Ra" so She had a solar aspect... I suppose some trash novelist in one of those glossy paperback series that seem to litter every book rack across the nation described Her somewhere or other as a vampire Goddess? 

Tom Tierney is a very gifted artist.  I heartily recommend his Sixties fashion doll series, also from Dover, for those who enjoy some of the more outlandish fashions of the era.

I have to admit I am fascinated with that image of Jean Simmons you've just posted.  I have never seen the "extended" redaction of this episode.  I was never really clear just how "extended" it was--I thought if it was just a couple of fiddly bits here and there, why bother, since I was less than enthused with what I had seen already--but now I am intrigued...

Hey Jennifer, it's your birthday!  Wish I were as gifted as some here and could provide a tasty photo of Don Briscoe doing his thing to brighten your day and make it extra special.

Wishing you all the very best,

To Sara Monster:

That loop of 1967 Carolyn swinging her biker-chick hair and Buzz swinging his ... moneymaker (!) is practically the best New Year's Eve treat I could imagine!  Thank you so much!

Gawd--was 1966 really 45 years ago?  That's more horrifying a thought than any of the cliffhanger endings we weathered on DS.

New Year's Eve cheers all round,

Haven't been able to check in here in awhile due to holiday travel.  It's always such a treat to see the latest delights on the Robservations slideshow.

I'll have to re-watch the episode (a good one, as I recall) where Liz and Roger invite Laura to live at Collinwood.  The dress Liz wore for that scene, as shown in today's snapshot, is blinding in its display of Chanel-inspired diva glamour.  Liz clearly was defining battle lines with Laura, even before the two had started with the raised eyebrows and defiant pouts.

Happy New Year to all!

You know I adore the shot of Julia and LeviaLiz in their pearls from 1969.  Grayson and Joan, THE Divas--what more fabulous Xmas glamour could one imagine?

I hope the Barn and Ange shippers get to see the shot of them together featured on the Current Talk page today.  It's one of the best shots of them together I have ever seen.  And it really conveys the tension of their relationship.

Love this idea, Cousin Taeylor.  I am sure the result will be a rare gem!

I still dream of someday doing a one-off zine, "Cheekbones: for the Grayson Hall Connoisseur."  I also contemplate doing a short book about various performances of hers and self-publishing it on Lulu.

Has a fund been set up for those who wish to donate on behalf of the restoration of Seaview?  Judging from what I saw on my visits there in the 1990s, it would be a very expensive project, alas.

Thanks for posting this sad news.  My prayers are with Chris and his family.

I thought this was a hoot--great shot to choose for that headline.

Thanks for sharing the link, MB.

How quaint.  But I wonder just how familiar with the series they can really be if they're writing about the "1895" storyline...

Of course, as we all know, the series writers slid around with 1795, switching to 1796 (which did follow the calendar properly) and then to 1797 (which, alas, was pure stumbling DS discontinuity).

And I wanna know--where's the JULIA room????

Julia looks as if she's ready to royally shred a certain errant vampire in today's picture.  MEOW!

Love Chris's line, too.  Hysterical!

December of 1969 rates as a high point in the series for me.

In tonight's show, I just love the look of prim, cat-like disapproval on the Countess's face as Vicki's "shocking" attire is being paraded for the Reverend's examination.  Such bluestockinged distaste is usually more the province of Miss Abigail Collins, but the Countess more than holds her own in this delicious little moment.

Isn't there a scene where Trask comes in while Natalie is reading her cards and thunders:  "the Devil's picture-book, madam!"  It's been a really long time since I watched this storyline...

There are some great shots from Leviathan too.  My favorite is when Julia gets in Barn's face about the discovery of Quentin and he tells her to stop wasting her time.  The look on Chris's countenance seems to say, "Whoa! skating on thin ice there with the good Doctor!"

I just love these shows...

I remember the last time I watched it, I was able to kind of figure out an explication for Liz's Leviathan dream.  I can't recall now just what it was.  I wonder whether this was one of the instances where they were improvising on the spot... the only dream sequence I can recall that was creepier was the one from 1897 where Jamison dreamt that he was David in 1969 being given a fake birthday party because he was about to die or already dead.

Love today's shots of Diana Millay's big entrance in 1966.  This may be my favorite introduction of a new character.  Interesting how both Diana and Grayson played their first introductory scenes opposite KLS.

I always thought Laura's lunching hat was too offbeat for Ohrbach's; could it have been from Diana's own wardrobe?
