Hey Sarah I like your solution to the "problem"!  I think Q, B & J would make a great threesome!  Maybe not traditionally, but, hey, what about these three is?

They all care so much about one another and are so fond of one another.  I think it would be the ideal solution.  

And I wanna be a fly on the wall when Roger and Liz discuss the matter.

LIZ:  We will simply have to pretend that Quentin is staying with Barnabas and Julia to help them with their history project ... I mean, their scientific research into reanimated corpses ... I mean, their study of exorcism techniques among the rich and famous ... I mean--

ROGER:  Oh, shut up, Liz!

Hi Connie, I'm definitely still reading the story, though I am behind by a few chapters, due to the fact that I was pretty much offline for 2 weeks, and I have cartloads of work to catch up with.

Today over lunch I read the chapter where Julia had realized she needed to perform the surgery on Quentin's bullet herself.  I smiled to read about Barnabas' newfound appreciation for housework.  I imagine him putting on a big frilly apron to protect those expensive suits he always wore around the house in the Sixties.

Happy Birthday Jennifer!

I thought of you a few days ago as I finally ordered the MPI tapes for weeks 84 and 85, when Chris does that thing we like so much!

Hope you get warm wolfie snugglies for your special day.

xo, Steve

I saw Thayer David's appearance on Rockford Files when TV Land aired it recently.  It's a great little scene, and very different from his other work.

I recommend the episode of Rockford in which Dennis Patrick and Dana Elcar appeared, if you enjoyed their work on DS; they both play characters a lot like Jason and Sherrif Patterson, though the writing isn't as good as what they were given on DS.  Still fun to see.  Dennis looked very distinguished, and Dana looked a lot healthier than he did on DS--that healthy California lifestyle no doubt!

Thanks for sharing these, Victoria.  I hadn't heard about this being aired; would have taped it, had I known.  I enjoyed Bernau's work on DS a lot.  

He looks as if he had a rough life, given how badly he seems to have aged during the 13 years between 1970 (when he did his work on DS) and ths time.

Incidentally, Chris played opposite Don Briscoe in the replacement cast for Boys in the Band in 1969 on B'way.  I've often wondered whether Briscoe put the bee in his bonnet about trying out for DS.

Hi Carol, I'm sure you will breeze through that laser surgery.  My Mom just had to have a procedure (in two steps, one for each eye) and although she was very nervous it all went so smoothly, she said afterwards she didn't even know everything happened!

Oooh, wouldn't I just love to get inside Willie Loomis.  Sorry to be crude in this wonderful holiday season, but that man has the most attractive derriere of ALL who live at the Great House.

Yes, it is definitely time for me to re watch my Anchor Bay video of Daughters of Darkness!  (I just learned recently that in certain parts of Europe, vampires and werewolves are supposed to be very active around the time of Yule, so in a way, it could be considered holiday viewing!  Hey, I'll take a nude Johnny Karlen, vintage 1970, over Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer any day!)

Oh Raineypark, I feel your pain.

Since I had no memory of the scene where Magda curses Quentin from the original broadcast, I was really looking forward to it when the MPI tapes came out.  What a letdown!  I know they were writing this stuff by the seat of their pants, but I really thought they could have come up with something at least a little bit dramatic.  

Barnabas' curse scene is one of the classics of the series.  Quentin's curse scene--who remembers it?  At least Grayson's face was etched in acid for that scene, though in her mind she was probably thinking "SAM! I want a REWRITE!"

Gracious Yule regards,  Steve  
PS. Have you seen the Full Moon?  Magick!!!

Oh, I'm so glad you got to see this! It is one of my favorite moments of the entire series.

I was impressed that one of the fans brought this up to GH during the 1973 tape interview.  GH (gasping in disbelief right on cue):  "You mean you could SEE the wig???"

Priceless.

Current Talk '02 II / Re: Important coffin Question
« on: December 18, 2002, 09:56:41 PM »
I've wondered about that too, darling.  I always waited, in vain, for a scene where the coffin lid slowly began opening with one of those marvelously prolonged creaking sound effects, followed abruptly by the crash of the candelabra clattering to the ground.  Cut to close-up of Barn peering over the lid and cursing "Oh, @#$&!"

Could be even funnier than that scene of Queen Victoria dropping the secret treaty at the beginning of "Young Sherlock Holmes" with Gene Wiilder.

Just have to report that the two new chapters continue the delightful zest of this wonderfully refreshing tale.  

I have to say I love Barnabas in Galloping Gourmet mode.  Fettucine Alfredo?  Pancakes, no doubt with fresh sliced fruit?  What's next?  Canapes and stuffed olives?  I'd love to see a scene where a harried Barn on a short fuse is working on party hors d'oeuvres and supervising Willie who's having a hideous time with an olive-pitter.  Oh Lordee.

Steve

Just printed out the two new chapters and can't wait to read them!  Something to look forward to for my lunch break.  Thanks for sharing this wonderful tale.

What a wonderful treat!  I must send Dee an email and congratulate her on this truly fabulous site!

Only browsing for 5 minutes and I already learned something new--Grayson did a commercial for VOTE toothpaste around 1968!  

What a treasure trove.

Best wishes,

Steve

Dear Midnite, Mysterioso Darling and Dom,

All 3 of you deserve some kind of special award for keeping this space loony-tunes free!

Your forever admirer,

Gothick

I love it btw that Connie came with an exquisite image for Collinwood at Xmas that happened to be just like how I described my ideal Yuletree DS theme ornament!  I guess great minds work alike ...
