Bloody Amplification… (More on Episode 15 & 16)

Babe. That’s mostly what we can say here but…

Morticia Addams’ lines for Episode 15 were created in 2013. I made a better go for Victoria in this scene but because of a newer microphone (same make and company) her words seem louder on the test listen, so I have to amplify for Morticia. Then go through all the bother to save the file where I can play it on my mp3 player with a different set of headphones and now? Morticia is too loud.

ARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRGGGGG!

Can you see in all of this why Facebook like-clicks and graciously sent memes get on my nerves? šŸ™‚

So, how to combat the issue? Well last night was rather lovely but I’m in the here and now, so those thoughts only help a bit to distract me. Then I have funĀ make-out daydreams about Willie Loomis. That’s a comfort. ^_^

What to do?

Ah, in between audio edits, I can look over what I have for Episode 16! Why am I so looking forward to this? As some thorough readers remember, my Muse is a harsh mistress. I can barely be entertained by any thing not in my own work, meaning all the different fandoms. I’d like to get back to watching Dark Shadows and The Addams Family for more accuracy and enjoyment, the only film I’ve been able to watch in over a year is Clue, but for Episodes 16 & 17 I get to watch ANOTHER movie. Oh!!! The feeling of an ounce of freedom to stretch out!

Yes, yes, I know. Too much, eh?

I once decidedĀ against bringing in The Ghost With The Most; it’s not 1960s. But then again, how long has this guy been hanging around? OurĀ folks bureaucratically running the afterlife seem to know him very well. Also, the fanwork for him is quite good from what I’ve seen. Are the stripes of his outfit a metaphor to once being part of a chain-gang back in the day, but were made vertical when he passed-on? This could range him between the late 1800’s to the mid 1950’s, and picking up newer slang along the way. As for an earlier version of BJ, it looks manageable. I just pray that possible sequel coming out won’t injure what I put together.

As for why? Most of us know Angelique Bouchard gets around. No matter what, she keeps coming back. ItĀ is possibleĀ BJ encountered her and thisĀ did not turn out to his liking. There is no revenge in his purview for her as a witch… but right now? She’s not a witch. She’s a vampire… more corporeal, you see? And being more corporeal, our striped teamster could very well have his revenge on her:

As I posted to facebook a while back, “Well, do you wanna effin’ see it or not?”


I’m wagering not since I haven’t even got enough discussion on episode 7 yet, much less all the ones after that. Oh, well. Guess it’ll be me and my grassroots kin for many months/years to come. Vocal support to enjoyment of the scenes can change that at any moment, but I urge my readers not to wait for someone else to do it. If you want to be on the journey more than my updates you’ll have to participate. And there is little fear in doing so. Some reviewers want to plunk down their identities, but no one has to, you know. šŸ˜‰

As it happens, I’ve found another person reviewing the marriage novel and with wonderful insight. I am adoring that communication to it. It was what I always wanted. When my pattern of creation altered from goofing-off to channeling all the characters, the project changed completely. My adoptees flocked into my psyche and started showing me things. I was giving and they wanted to give back. As with the marriage novel, Barnabas Collins and Margaret Josette Dupres opened a whole new world of possibilities. Things I’d craved but couldn’t isolate in my own life. When I look at reviews I’m only seeing any splendour I own as a conduit. I become an instrument of empathy and they lead the way. I’ve become a spectator, but a very lonely one with the audience around me saying nothing. I’m in that theatre seat with everyone but they rarely chuckle or express themselves. It’s a vacant room of onlookersĀ staring into space. I feel alone among hundreds of people and my adoptees see that as well. So further reviews on “Margaret Josette Dupres” with that reflection to the depth of love and sharing the passion is deeply important to me. I never knew it was possible for erotica to contain so much love, but this one does. And vampire erotica to bring more uniqueness in the discovery!

As for looking over Episode 16: getting the magic of new creation back. Oh, wow! I’m looking at what I’ve got. There are some wonderful scenesĀ here. Maggie meets Caleb who knows all of her incarnations, Lily and Elizabeth are packing for England together and enjoying each others company, Professor Stokes and Dr. Hoffman coming to terms with how she’s feeling and how he’s feeling about her. ā¤

And our Ghost With The Most. I approached him about this. And what did he tell me with open arms?

Beetlejuice

“I’m all yours, babe! Happy to be of service.”

Have you noticed I haven’t said his name once in this blogpost? It’s true. I’m a believer.

So that’s where I’m at right now, what with these blasted voices amplified either too loud or too soft.

But again, I’m dying to finish Episode 15 and move forward to where I left off in 2013 with the 16th Episode. Why? Because now The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows has to be earned, not bestowed. I’ve gone through too much Hell, obviously, and five chunky responses per episode is hardly much to ask for. As I said in my “How Soon Is Now?” podcast, this is not only free-entertainment, but it’s costing me and it’s costing me a bundle. Either way I can do it for me by the time I reach Episode 16. Uploading more will be up to audience participation.

With further episodesĀ only kept to myself and grassroots helpers? It reminds me of the scene in “Anne of Avonlea” when Anne shows Marilla her new book and says,

anneandmarilla-295x230

“It’s mine. It’s all mine.”

For Barnabas Collins and Margaret Josette Dupres? I’m still working on further chapters too, but I’d like to leave this video forĀ my dear couple. I only listened and tried to help, and in return the two of you gave usĀ the love life we wanted so desperately but couldn’t find, until I asked that question at the end of 2013. Thank you. ā¤

The Letters Are Coming In!!!

United_States_Postal_Service_(emblem)

YES! I was right! Working in tandem with all the different forms of communication can make this thing work. It started with pen pals anyway, at least one. Writing for writing: correspondence. Just got to the P.O. Box today and after rifling through the previous owners junk mail, I got two big whoppers and more to come!

A beautifully hand-written letter with a raven on it. She is extremely grateful to be included in going over the work and becoming pen friends. YES! It was a shaky start being unfamiliar with the characters but the more she listened the more everything grew on her and grew easily. ā€œConstructive-praiseā€ appealed greatly and got her thinking deep on the level of creative pursuits.Ā  Excellent! Sheā€™s also very intrigued and delighted by the idea of what happily ever afterĀ looks like rather than simply ending a story with a curtain fall.

I must give some gratitude to one of my favourite authors here:

booklucymaudmontgomerythegiftofwings

This lady knew what it was to write about living, and common life certainly wasnā€™t boring!

So this pen pal is excitedly getting immersed, sent me a piece of her own fandom artwork and plans to write more in the future. Just wanted to send me something quick to make sure I knew she was on it. Also a couple photos. Wonderful.


And the next letter…

Oh, dear. I heard my voice was sexy but I guess the coffee shop scene in episode 5 with Barnabas and Maggie turned someone onā€¦ Whoah! Well, entertainment is often about pleasure, right? (I must try to ascertain this in a similar fashion withĀ the erotica I never intended to create.) The scene with Stokes and Barnabas wasnā€™t so much to his liking but there were elements that were enjoyed. Ah, well, no big deal. It was a little goofy, I shall admit. Two gentlemen staggering to read Willieā€™s letter together canā€™t be all that much of a speedy show mover. (lol)

W-o-wā€¦ all the scenes have great feedback here, from Tony and Carolyn chatting in the car to Victoria and Peter arriving at The Bates Motel. Apparently he figured it out, but that might be due to my last letter including an image of Victoria against Norman Batesā€™ house with his silhouette as well.

My gentle readers, as you can see, these pen pals are getting the information slowly, are enjoying it slowly, and to the full. I hope someday we can make this online world equally as valid.

Interview with blogger Daryl Wor of The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows

A fitting addition for me on Mother’s Day. ā¤

The Blogger

Daryl Wor is an actor/writer/comedienne who creates the podcast, audio-drama and writes the blog for a (mainly) 1960ā€™s multi-fandom creation: The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows. Having worked on original material prior to this, also delving into several spooky or supernatural worlds, combining many beloved screen characters of the darker but fun variety is a challenge but manageable. The fandoms involved are numerous but the main ones mixed in are day-time drama Dark Shadows, two characters from several comedy skits on The Kids In The Hall, Wadsworth from the film Clue (which took place in 1954), The Ghost & Mrs. Muir television program, The Addams Family, and Lily from The Munsters.

Previously a vision-therapist and a high-school teacher for a special education program with emotionally-disturbed students requiring therapy, problem-solving by example is nothing new to her. The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows, as well as a vampiric andā€¦

Simplicity

“Simplicity” The Last Dance: Barnabas/Josette

Simplicity

My inner haunting
Leaves me too lonely
Leaves me too empty
Killing me slowly

In certain lights
In these stars
Night fixtures
Here in candle light

Killing me as I fallā€¦

As I let you down
I am nothing
You still remain as I hurt
And I disappoint
I am nothing
You still remainā€¦

This secret feeling
That feeds my passion
That burns and inspires
Killing me slowly
Still you continue
You dream louder still
In virtue, and I see you bleeding

I cry and cry inside
You cry forever
Still disappear as I do hideā€¦

I am I
I am I
I am I

I will fall
I will let you down
I will forget
It could be the reason youā€™re still bleeding

Still you remain
You remember
Even while your heart is breaking
I will make you hurt
Make you cry and cry
And I will be your greatest failure

Still you remain
You remember
Youā€™re the reason Iā€™m still dreaming

Like a child who believes
You believe in me
Be my witness
Words could never say how youā€™re my world
My simplicity
You make me everything

Everything I am and still believe in
In your simplicity
In your dreaming
My world
My reason to believe
