Yes! My calmer self is speaking these days. Discussing why this show ended up being more me talking over details than the radio drama project part of it: commercialism online was a massive component of that and what commercialism did to our social lives. Seeing the difference in community organized creations versus commercial creations.

Topics in my consideration of a potential Dark Shadows continuation program, digesting that and how it might affect everything. How I’ve digested other series apart from Dark Shadows, and how friends have made adjustments for other new releases. Also why I and others chose Dark Shadows to view. Making choices about other entertainment productions (Star Wars, Star Trek, etc.) How a new show doesn’t really change anything for Interruption fanwork.

My delving into Dark Shadows movie fanfiction, having fun with that and why I enjoy it. The choices that I make with productions by Burton & company, as well as my being in the middle for those, along with what precious few fun-spooky flicks we had prior to Burton’s work. Why it’s helpful to do longer reviews in a chronological format.

Some addressing to the pen pals, keep in touch, thank you!

Milligan and Hecubus come to introduce the show with their usual flair but a much different song.

As Carolyn Stoddard enters The Great House, her uncle, Roger Collins, presents her with the letter Mrs. Muir has sent which requests Miss Stoddard to visit her in Schooner Bay, while Roger evokes a bizarre dream he once had.

After Maggie ascertains what Captain Gregg managed with Endora, via her father’s description, she asks about what happened to Mr. Wells at the Inn. Sam is happy to relay that Mr. Wells did not perish and perhaps Chris Jennings is in as much trouble as the both of them suspect. This leaves them wondering what the Witches of Morning Glory Circle are considering for our nemesis, Angelique.

Endora “pops in” joining with Samantha to investigate and discuss what should be done about Angelique. They gear up for a most un-pretty sight. As the time of their investigation moves along they feel the need to list the wide variety of bad deeds Angelique provided to the Collins family over many decades. Next they wonder where Angelique happens to be in the present.

Through an incantation (that I still can’t believe made it past the 1960’s censors) Angelique invokes herself to Diablos’ Dominion. He’s quite pleased to see her. It is Happy Hour In Hell, after all. As they discuss the details between her, a bio-exorcist, and Nicholas Blair over their favourite beverages, they come to an understanding.

Diablos shows very little patience with the likes of Nicholas Blair and his incompetence. His punishment is forthcoming. Sir Simon Milligan and Manservant Hecubus are *quite* happy with the results!

The deranged antics of The Underworld take their toll on Samantha and Endora. Then they manage to devise a plan for Angelique anyway…

As Carolyn Stoddard approaches Gull Cottage, Captain Gregg manages a little tease and she is welcomed warmly by the housekeeper, Martha.

Mrs. Carolyn Muir descends the stairs and gives her friend, Carolyn Stoddard, a play-by-play in the parlour of Elizabeth Stoddard’s visit to her and the implications for all involved, which includes the bestowing of further expectations to Collinwood’s current upkeep.

Next is a wee respite of Lily giving Liz the “indication” to meet with Bill Malloy’s ghost on deck.

Elizabeth meets with Bill to find they both were more fond of one each other than any might suppose, including one another, even as Bill expresses how much he now knows of Elizabeth’s past and Victoria’s place in that.

As Carolyn Stoddard returns to Collinwood, she approaches a distraction in the woods. After this terrifying experience, Carolyn discovers a little girl, Amy Jennings, and invites her to come along to The Great House.

Gratitude to pen friends all over. Explanation of how the closet-listeners came into being and how they behave. Hence, I avoid them in return. (Ah, the fascinating absurdity.)

Mentions of more tech communities who prefer humane methods. Then onward to further spoilers for Pit Episode 21 (twenty-one)!

A little explanation of our friend, Seamus, mentioned in previous podcasts, as well as his own reaction, likely very familiar to closet-listeners, to The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows. (One of my hypotheses was correct!)

Going through a list of highlights that would help to alleviate the communication problems with listeners of this series. Believe it or not, though I prefer you believe this: As much as there are some people who request and want “critiquing”? There are also some of us that don’t! (Yes, what a shock…) Then a description of how we all became monsters with this idea of criticizing ‘everything’. (Myself included.)

Concern over the younger generation and my little offerings of helping a tiny corner of that.

July 25, 2019 05:38 PM PDT

Just a little something that might help. Why going in sequence is not only useful but vital. Take care, everyone.

July 03, 2019 08:15 AM PDT

Difficulty in celebrating Dark Shadows and The Pit… As well as communication technology going bad. Appreciating Helena Clara Bouchet for being a non-canon AND canon romance fan. (Seriously!)

The perils with audience members attempting to be “critics”. Troubling responses from those *only* talking about what they *think* that ‘People’ think. (I’d much rather know what *you* think!)

Explaining all this to pen pals. Work on Pit episodes recently. Notes to those who always say “Change it!” with loving kindness to DS cast members.

Podcasts about the internet. (What was The Web like in 1999?) Discussing alterations in people’s behaviour with pen friends. Coming to terms with what Barnabas and Josette/Maggie fans have had to deal with for many years.

What I’ve been doing while utterly “wiped-out” including watching tons of Marx Brothers movies. Going through double overplays between our two centuries: 20th and 21st. (TV/youtube, mobile phones/telephones.)

If nothing else? I have finally done what I set out to do: Share the work to find the companionship. ^_^

Why “House of Dark Shadows” is a party movie, with much love and apologies all around.

Spoilers for Pit episodes (20) Twenty and (21) Twenty-One. It’s going to take a lot of effort for Chris Jennings to understand he’s in a relief-series now and not a soap-opera. Also a little consideration for how to word things with Bewitched characters.

How I came to learn about The Center for Humane Technology (humanetech.com) and how very important I consider their work, with incredible validation about my own social media experience, as well as the experiences from other pen pals. Theories on the discussion-avoidance problem.

I also talk about a self-taught trick I learned of *how* to pay better attention, there is a fun story about why I learned it. I hope it helps anyone who wants to improve their focusing skills. After that I share a treat of a memorable tool I grew up with from the 1980’s.

Discourse about grassroots help, and then: A heartfelt affirmation towards all those who love or enjoy “The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows”.

Background music:

“Pure Energy” – Information Society,
“Me” – Zion De Gallier,
“Living Room” – Broadcast,
“Tangram” – Tangerine Dream,
“Undertow (Spooky Remix)” – Lush
“Looking For You” – Patti Smith

2012 Movie Fans: WELCOME!

This is an update for old listeners and for new listeners: please get in touch.

Thanks to pen friends and offers to keep in touch from others who got “distracted” and how to get in touch with me. (I did all this for friendship and discussion, not popularity.)

Little touches on something small coming up in Pit # 21. (Willie and Wadsworth)

Pointers on what “The Haunting of Collinwood” is about.

Background music: George Michael (mash-up mix) and Republica.

Keep on listening and keep in touch!

Love,

Daryl

Again, “Explicit” while being fairly clean for all that! This entry is the second podcast about the marriage novel, and exploring the chapters of it; six through ten.

I address one pointer of how to encourage me to share more of the novel so far. No high hopes on that score, of course.

This audio session goes through, step-by step, discussing what occurs in each chapter, my personal struggles and triumphs through this journey as well as the wonderful discussion that arrived from wonderful friends and kind strangers.

Chapters discussed are as follows:

Chapter Six – “A Broken Bed” (including the hilarious consequences…)

Chapter Seven – “Other Reactions” (Characters outside the marriage making the best of it.)

Chapter Eight – “The Whom of Many” (Yes, tons and tons of discussion from all sides about the author’s notes in the details of the big non-canon pairing of Julia/Barnabas.)

Chapter Nine – All of Us

Chapter Ten – Prior Disturbances Come To Haunt

Background music (which I would love to know that you purchased) for this podcast is:

Stoa’s “Maare” & “Hanuz Nitz” + Madonna’s “Human Nature”. (Although if you haven’t purchased a copy of “Human Nature” by now? I shall wonder what rock you were living under that was even farther sequestered into the ground than mine.)

Happy St. Patrick (McGoohan)’s Day!

February 14, 2019 01:56 AM PST

Listeners expecting to hear me swear will be disappointed. This entry is the long-awaited first podcast about the marriage novel, and exploring the chapters of it; one through five.

This audio session goes through, step-by step, discussing what occurs in each chapter, my personal struggles and triumphs through this journey as well as the wonderful discussion that arrived from wonderful friends and kind strangers who granted me a way to stop panicking from lack of talk and finally allowed me to begin sleeping again which had been a problem at the end of 2013 into the beginning of 2014.

Chapters discussed are as follows:

Chapter One – The Wedding Day
Chapter Two – The Wedding Night
Chapter Three – What We Whispered
Chapter Four – Josette Speaks
Chapter Five – Sharing The Past, The Present, And The Future

Background music (which I would love to know that you purchased) for this podcast is:

Stoa’s “Sakrileg” & “La Lune Blanche” + Aurora Sutra’s “Consecrated Lover”.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Beginning with a basic explanation to this podcast series, then how garnering discussion for this series improved and how unfortunate societal changes created further problems.

In the workshop we explore how Randall & Hopkirk could work in “The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows” and a load of banter about most of the shows already involved. (Thank you, Osheen!)

Considerations of (The Real) Richard III in tandem to how Barnabas Collins’ character has been portrayed in fanwork. Concern over future generations. A big insight in the learning process via media entertainment; the example used is “Animal Crackers” with The Marx Brothers. Recognition of mistakes in a recorded world.

What is happiness? If you want better in life you have to figure out what “better” is. The “guilt” issue explained . Meanwhile, I’d rather you enjoy the show and tell me what you enjoy and why you do.
