The Exponential Growth (of Laura Collins)

DS Episode 142:


With Sam being so disturbed at the painting he creates of Laura Collins, somehow Victoria is compelled to request it and, after some endless arguments about nothing, Sam allows her to take it.


Frankly, I think it looks kinda sexy! Hee hee hee!


Victoria takes it back to Collinwood. Our David is swiftly enamoured with the painting as it represents his dream of Laura when she arrived. Laura, herself, is upset and distressed but still agrees to let David have it after asking Miss Winters for it. (More endless arguing ensues.)

I, myself, am in total agreement with David. It is, as he says, “cool”. Not to mention she’s got WINGS in the darn thing! I strongly felt that should have been David’s argument about the painting, “Dude, Mom, you have wings in it!


(Perhaps someone dropped a tab in Pop’s whiskey?)


David gets the painting hung up in his room and says he could “watch it all day”. I can see where he’s coming from. It rather looks as if it’s animated.


Of course, Sam returns home happy as heck the canvas is gone and then in another state of possession begins forming a new one… (Which reminds me that I managed very naturally with his character in The Pit… The man is clearly psychic.)


But the highest delight of this episode? David Collins rests, almost peacefully, in the bliss of his mother’s psychedelic picture hanging in his room and…


The portrait begins glowing…


And Laura’s head appears to be glowing…


And growing


And growing


Until it seems to encompass the entirety of the room to David’s understandable horror.


[Commence Daryl writhing with hysterical laughter in the recliner to her husband’s great amusement.]


Forget Barnabas, people.

Laura Collins is a force to be reckoned with here.


Then the interview with Diana Millay on the same disk will kick your butt even more resolutely. She is a Phoenix, she even claims it, and she has no fear of the “R-word”. (Reincarnation.)


Fill as much virtual space as you want with deceptions and misguidance about Dark Shadows. Try!

For you shall never exceed the size of Laura Collins’ IMAX head!


M’WA–HA–HA—HA–HA–HAAAAWWWWWWWWWW!!!

DS Annotations is back? Because of me?

Hi All!

Apparently, for those familiar with DS Annotations Theater on youtube, the annotation captions got disabled somehow and Saramonster considered all of her jokes were lost forever. However! I had sent her copies years ago that I made with a weird app/program that I had at the time due to some of the shows getting blocked in whatever country sometimes. Those blocks kept switching so I managed to get most of her shows over time. (I had no idea the captions got removed recently on youtube.)

Anyway, Saramonster/SlaveOfAVampire just wrote to me a couple days ago with the link for the “Back From The Dead” edition of DS Annotations Theater and she gave me the credit on the front of the playlist for making this possible!

Wow. I’m stoked. I didn’t know the annotations got messed up but I am very happy I am responsible for their renewal.

As I wrote to Saramonster in response to her news: PAW-TAY!

Here ya go, for those who want it. For those who don’t, she has another suggestion on her channel.

It also helps a great, great, great, great, great deal to view these if you are a fan of Mystery Science Theater 3000. This style of humour is heavily inspired from that program, which was lovingly ignited from the mind of Joel Hodgson.

Spoilercast-Update April 2021/October 2013

Personal updates and discussion with a beloved pen friend as we chatted over the phone, including Doctor Who, and the goofiness of the villains therein. Going over books I’ve been listening to and enjoying.

Working on Hoffman/Stokes romance and consulting Helena for help. Bad things and good things in pairings and enjoyment.

Reading notes about “House of Dark Shadows” from another pen friend who is an avid movie fan rather than a DS fan.

Working with Madam Findley’s character, things coming up in “The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows” for her and consulting Osheen Nevoy about the fun with Osheen’s input. Also mixing things up with knowledge of the 1897 portion of DS.

Sharing an old recording from 2013 in consulting my husband with changes I’d made to Episode 2: “Chamberpots and Coffee Cups”. (Some swear word warnings prior to beginning.)
