GO RONDO IN 2014! #darkshadows #rondoawards

The Collinsport Historical Society --  that fit, active James Bond to the Foundation's flabby, boozy Matt Helm -- is again nominated for that top award in horror, THE RONDO.  This was an explosive year for the CHS... a Jonathan Frid memorial documentary, numerous podcasts covering every corner of DS' past and future, and a whole book!  Not to mention some great drink recipes, one of which involved BACON!

We did not see the plot holes, we did not see the inconsistencies, we overlooked certain things.   Barnabas was for us what we needed him to be, and each of us saw it somewhat differently - and given those versions then we ask "what was the … [Read more...]
