Dark Shadows revisited

Were you one of the kids who ran home from school each day to watch Dark Shadows? Then you might be interested in the news that a screenwriter has finally been picked to write a big screen version of the story of Barnabas (the vampire), Quentin (the werewolf), and other ghoulish characters in that gothic soap opera from the 1960's. Johnny Depp will play Barnabas, and the movie will be directed by Tim Burton. So either it will be really really cool or it will suck. It's going to be written by Seth Grahame-Smith, the guy who wrote books including Abraham Lincoln Vampire Hunter, and Pride and Prejudice and Zombies..so at least it's some one who understands the material. I was pretty young when the Dark Shadows big bit (pun intended), but I do recall dashing home from first grade to watch the show with my older brother and his high school buddies. (They all came over to our house to smoke cigarettes and drink Cokes). The only Dark Shadows memorabilia I got during the time the show was on was a View-master reel..which I still have...but unfortunately not the the picture sleeve. I have made an attempt though to create the collection I didn't have as a kid...here are a couple of my Dark Shadows items.

And here's a video to take you back..

OMG, I loved that show, I was a tiny bit older than you and I would run home from the bus stop and turn it on. You have to admit the cheesyness of it all. I used to love when they would close a door and the sconces would shake or the clock would shake,what was the budget on that show, $1.50? I know they must have gone broke on underliner, it was so thick. You could see the glue on Quentien's mutton chops, how funny. DBD

The late 1970s weren't necessarily a great time for music, but there were a few gems. This song may or may not have been one of them. We got a lot of love for Jay Ferguson's "Thunder Island" which was a hit in early 1978. It made it up to...

Dear Superstars, During last night's elimination I think my heart may have stopped beating and that would've been it's own "drive-by heartache." This competition is tough but I'm very proud for making it through the first challenge. My level of...
