Well, to be brutally candid, the words "How about them Sox?" is enough to put me into a stupor worthy of Laura Collins and a cheerful blaze.  The eyes just glaze right over.

And I thought Nomar was a character from The Day the Earth Stood Still. As in Klaatu Nikto Nomar Barada?

but pay me no mind, I really live on Mars, the whole Boston thing is just a fiction...

Talking of news, the word from California is really quite frightening.  I'm going to Canada on Friday and I really wish I did not have to come back.

My favorite has to be Cassandra, and it's not just because that was how I got my first glimpse of her as a wee one back in 1968.

I don't know what it is, but somehow a lot of different factors came together to make Cassandra a really interesting role, from a dramatic point of view.  IMO the scenes with Barnabas are a lot hotter because the character is trying so hard to veil her love and lust for him under a thin veneer of hatred.  There's also the wonderful scenes with Nicholas, and her great clothes that run the gamut from frumpus maximus to uptown chic.

And then, of course, there's ... THE WIG.

My runner-up would be Leviathans Ang.  Even though she has so little do in that storyline, she has some great scenes, fab clothes, and spectacular hairpieces.

In my not-so-humble opinion, the era of anything on television remotely resembling theater--shorthand for narratives with three dimensional characters and some semblance of attention to production detail--is in its death-throes.

By five years from now, there will be very few series in any genre left on the tube that do not fit some version of the "reality" TV model. Even cable is going the same way--a friend has been updating me on the struggle to keep East Enders on the BBC's American channel, but apparently even the Beeb is more interested in "Trading Spaces" or whatever the Hel it's called than a quality series.

As for Port Charles, I never watched it, but I think its failure is indicative only of a show that did not start out with very much reaching the end of the line.  They kept that Caleb story going for, what, 2 years?  it was meant to last a couple of months, iirc.

Hi Cassandra, as I've mentioned before, I've been watching my tapes of the previous Sci Fi broadcast of the Laura storyline (from 1967).   Last night's shows were really great.  Roger threw the painting of Laura and David into the fire to the sound of piercing off-camera shrieks!  Diana's performance in the role of Laura just keeps getting creepier and creepier.

I think the first weeks of 1897 is an excellent choice for hiatus viewing.  Those have to be some of the best episodes the series ever did.  I actually prefer it to the start of 1795, which I know many fans rate as DS' finest moments.

Isn't Magda a hoot?  I love her cackling over "jeeep-seeee carrrds--older than theee Tarot!"  And Sandor is such a wonderful mix of grubbiness, sly absconding and genuine kindliness.

Thanks for these truly fabulous shots, dear.  I absolutely adore the closeup of Grayson with Matt.  I hope he gets to see it--perhaps you should send him a copy.

Matt and Sam joined Grayson in Mexico at some point during the Iguana shoot.  I'm not sure just how long they were down there.  Matt was kindergarten age that year (he's the same age as me--we were born 3 weeks apart--my Mom and Grayson were carrying babies at the same time, which kind of freaks me out).

It was during this time in Mexico that Matt and Liza Todd, Elizabeth Taylor's daughter, became friends, and they continued to visit with one another over the years.  Liza's wedding happened at Grayson and Sam's home, and Elizabeth had to soothe the tempers of the local police who were dragooned into serving bodyguard duty.

I love that 1968 interview in which Grayson complained that Julia was such a damn "straight-ass"!

There *are* some wonderful moments where Grayson's own personality comes through in her performance as Julia, and I think this line must surely be one of them.  Thanks for mentioning it, John.

regards, Steve

Happy Birthday, darling!

Hope your day is special, and may it be the start of the best year ever!

My life really began at 40, so I personally have no regrets whatsoever about being designated Middle Aged.

Love darling,

at first I thought you were referring to a certain lady (well, that's one word for her) who will shortly be gracing the hallowed halls of Crawlinwood once again.

I'll have to look at that tape!  but my guess is that Jim S was about to goof and say his next line, or something. That happened a lot on the show.

I believe Barbara did production work on one of the DS MPI anniversary tapes as well.  As far as I know, she has been involved in production since at least the early Eighties.

About 8 years or so ago there was a rumor that Barbara, Martine Beswick, and Mary Woronov were going to portray a trio of vampire actresses of a certain age who roamed the corridors of various fan conventions literally feeding off their admirers.  I'm sorry that never seems to have come to anything--I thought the idea sounded really rich!

« on: September 29, 2003, 07:59:18 PM »
Well, thanks for that note, and good luck with your investigations.

Unfortunately, I can think of entire episodes that would be practically edited out of existence if current industry standards (or, shall we say, rational standards?) are applied to Dark Shadows!

I am afraid that MPI does not realize just how obsessive we Dark Shadows fans are about our favorite show!  Perhaps the discussions here will help you to understand.

Nice avatar, Raineypark!

I attended TWO Mabon rituals this past weekend, one of which I priested at. So I'm definitely getting that 'tis the season feeling.

Current Talk '03 II / Barbara Steele
« on: September 29, 2003, 06:16:11 PM »
For at least a month now, I've been meaning to share the news that Barbara Steele (who played Dr. Julia Hoffman in the 1990 remake of Dark Shadows) is credited as a producer (I may be wrong, but I think she's what is described in the Industry as a "line producer") for the new camp hit, Queer Eye for the Straight Guy, on Bravo.

I really hope that Barbara was not involved in the detestable "Boy meets boy."  I watched a few episodes of that, and I wouldn't like to think of her being part of something that so shamelessly manipulated an individual's emotional life.

On the other hand, who in their right mind signs onto a reality show in the hope of finding a boyfriend?

puzzling, but happy to know that Barbara is gainfully employed,

G.
