Trying to spiff up the place. I have a new idea for how I want the site to look and what I want it to be. It’ll take some work.
I’ve been hesitant to add anything because I was starting an auspicious project when the line went dead. It went dead because of a much-alluded-to project I’ve been working on, vaguely associated with the 50th anniversary next summer. Things collided. The DSXP started well. The other project was a massive challenge. Couldn’t do both, and I put my focus on the project for the 50th. 1225-in-31 can happen next summer. Probably will. And once an e-mail or two come through, I can talk about the other.
In the meantime, join me and the Collinsport Historical Society on Black Friday as I host DSXP91… all of the 1991 series from start to finish, noon to midnight! I got the idea when the new DVD set appeared in a weird box and a more faithful aspect ratio. Will the day-for-night be restored? Don’t tell me! Gotta find out for myself! I’ll be tweeting like crazy, and you can monitor the fun by following #DarkShadows and (maybe) #DSXP91. There’s a more thorough write-up here:
It’s a show that is near to my heart. In fact, I found myself in a brief conversation with Joanna Going just a few hours ago.
I know that some are partisan, and the tweets will certainly do lots of comparing and contrasting. Dark Shadows is a big universe. This is one more dimension to the strange world of Parallel Time.
And, yes, it was a source of tonsorial inspiration for a long, long time.
