Current Talk '03 I / Love your werewolf Day!
« on: February 12, 2003, 01:39:25 AM »
Greetings, although I erroneously believed it to fall in January, a calendar that has come to my attention states that this February 15 is Lupercalia, the official Roman holiday for werewolves everywhere!

The werewolf priests of Lupercus (a tutelary god of Rome) used to rush through the streets howling, slavering, cracking whips and making mayhem. Women who were having difficulty conceiving, and men in search of a kinky good time, would offer their backsides to the lash of the sacred whip for fertility and/or fun.

I now think of a certain holiday celebrated by a chocoholic feeding frenzy on Feb. 14 as Lupercalia Eve.  Ah, I hear the wolves howling amorously in the distance...

Wolvishly,

Steve

Oh Connie, that photo is just priceless!  

I keep imagining captions, texts, situations that are sooo beyond the pale of this Board.  Ah well, at least *I*'m enjoying them.

A fan forever,

I see Count Petofi as sexually omnivorous:  women, young men, unicorns ...

It would seem that Violet Welles, who created the good Count, was very well read in the more obscure byways of 1890s literature.  The Count always struck me as a cross between Oscar Wilde and Aleister Crowley.  I do love the stories about Lord Kitchener, the deliciously rolled-out epigrams, the homburg and cigars.  His fondness for Mozart always struck me as a tip of the hat to Christopher Isherwood's Mr. Norris.

Yes, DS could be surprisingly literate for a soap opera that was widely regarded as just the latest teeny-bopper craze...

Grayson Hall and Diana Davila worked together twice again in the 1970s.  Once both were in a play whose title escapes me at the moment.  And in the mid 70s both appeared in an annoyingly elusive TV movie (which I suspect may have been shot on video), The 2 Deaths of Sean Doolittle, starring George Grizzard in the title role and directed by ... Lela Swift!

I'll take Tim, minus the boxers-or-briefs (call me a purist).

Strumpet is definitely what Miss Emily Dickinson would call "a word to raise your hat to."  (if she bothered with such oddities as dangling prepositions, of course)

I for one cherish hearing Joan Collins refer to Heather Locklear's character on Dynasty as "that trollop, Sammy Jo!"

That ad is a real scream, Midnite.  I was around at the time and I NEVER saw these ads.  I wonder whether they were limited to certain areas of the country.

The idea about Barnbas projecting himself forward and backwards through time with it is a hoot, too.  Makes the damned thing sound like a real menace!

And then there's the line about the compartment for Milady's jewelry or "other secrets"!  PLEASE help me not to go there...

« on: January 28, 2003, 08:17:37 PM »
Well, the way I remember it is that the slaughtered 9 were gypsies Petofi had killed over the years.

Wasn't there dialogue where Magda said Count Petofi had been cured of being a werewolf by a gypsy witch and then refused to pay for the cure?  And in revenge, his hand, in which all his magical powers was concentrated, was chopped off.

I remember the Count reminiscing about how he slaughtered his pet unicorn one night when the moon was full.  It was one of the very few times he ever appeared to show something akin to a human emotion.

Anyhow, I think the 9 gypsies were slaughtered over a period of years.  There's a scene I do recall quite clearly where he was gloating to Aristede about that.

RP, I'm ROFLMAO at your comments!!

I was actually hoping that Connie might write a naughty caption for that picture.  All I can think of is something along the lines of "We've got to stop meeting like this!"

Other alternatives come to mind, but they're X rated (Gods, I am showing my age here!)

Marsha, dahlink, this is your fuzzy sis way up in the frozen North (aka Boston!)  Ooh, you'd love it so much right now.  Lots of snow, lots of ice, lots of apple-checked men running around in layers.

I am so glad you had such a divoon birthday, you deserve nothing but the best, dear.  Mr. Denison asked you to give me his best birthday regards.  We had tea on Sunday and I read his cards.  Believe it or not, he got the Death card, AND the Lovers!  I told him the Death card meant getting rid of lots of unwanted crap from last year and the Lovers points to ... possibilities!  I felt just like Magda (well, not quite, but YOU know).

Somebody told me some new dirt about Diane the other day.  Something about a speeding ticket?  I honestly can't recall.  Where do you put the amount of trouble that girl gets herself into???

Well dear you are in my thoughts.  I am heading up North again on Wed. night for some cuddling with my French Canadian sweetie.  Miss you so much!

OH Connie, be still my beating loins, er, I mean, HEART.

That was really precious.  A friend of mine thinks that Humbert (esp. in his Nicholas Blair persona) is something of a leather daddy.  And Don here is clearly a deceptively baby-faced, tough bit of street ACTION.

mmmmmm (sound of Gothick purring)

When I was bothering to watch DS on Sci Fi (when available) a couple of runs back, mainly because I didn't yet have most of the shows on tape, I remember muffled sound frequently on Sci Fi's broadcasts of DS, not just for this month of 1897.  

I also have noticed on the MPI tapes episodes where some other soundtrack was playing behind the existing soundtrack. There's an episode from the 1968 storyline when Julia comes staggering in from Tom's feast in the woods where my MPI tape has a jarring, harsh noise that lasts a couple of seconds. Richard Holt said this was on the master tape. And then there are all of those shows where one of the cameras seemed to have some kind of weird fisheye lens on it and nobody bothered to fix it!

I guess we can just count our blessings that so much of the show survives and looks and sounds as good as it does.  If you want comparisons, try another mid Sixties soap. I have 5 shows from the 1966 Days of Our Lives and it's soooo dull.

Poor Barbara Eden. It's good to see her looking so chipper and vital after the horrors she endured last year.  That woman is a real trooper.

I'm glad you were able to get such a lovely photo, Ringo. You actually look great in this, in my not-so-humble opinion.

*I* still dream of Grayson Hall.  I had a hysterically funny dream of her a couple of nights ago.  She was still alive, and hostessing a game show of the "Weakest Link" variety.  She was brilliant at it and had become a national figure as a result.

Aren't the preserves damson, or damson plums?

Help!  I need Raineypark to help remind me of Minerva's Little Book of Home Preserves and what she says about plums!

I LOVE MINERVA TRASK.
