Hittin’ up the Goth-Kin… As Well as The Ghost And Mrs. Muir fans

I found a few new Goth sites and got Episode #3 to them. A number of like-clicks, of course, but one chap was quite enthusiastic. I’m so glad. It does usually seem to be that third episode with “The Lost Boys” music presented at the intro truly gets a number of people to open up. YAY!  His words for this Dark Shadows/Kids In The Hall/Golden Girls/Freddy Krueger/Twin Peaks episode?

I love it! I had a few really good chuckles and the production is fantastic! Having done a bit of internet radio, I know it’s not easy. Nice work! … Well, you have a fan! I’m intrigued to see where it goes from here. 🙂  … I have the utmost respect for those who contribute to the culture in any way they can. As long as people continue to contribute, we’re ensured that our culture will continue. I know I sound like an idealist, but I firmly believe that anyone who can contribute, even in the smallest way, should.”

Yes, I finally recognized:

satan like the golden girls

Even Satan likes The Golden Girls

Ah….

Just kidding… but… you know… 😉


Meanwhile… I had some time to go through the 3rd Episode of “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir”. That was fun and I took a number of screen shots, coming up with this consideration:

communication with scruffy

Ah… it’s hard to look over the program and not find all kinds of unique flexibility with the ghost of Captain Daniel Gregg to be inspired by. I believe this is from “Treasure Hunt”. I became intrigued on my second watch of the series when Madeira was drinkable. However, I remember the idea of spirits and libations, so this made sense to me.

Here we have even bigger examples of prowess. He’s creating the faux treasure map, so physical objects aren’t a strain for him to manage. What’s groovier? Communication with Scruffy.

No wonder so much is written as the two year run did have the potential for further tales. (Same as The Addams Family’s short-run.)

So as I presented this to The Ghost and Mrs. Muir fans, one called out, “Keep posting the great images!” Oh, yes. That got me alight. So as I went through the episode “Treasure Hunt” I screen capped plenty. There were a lot of scenes with Claymore, and I remembered them fairly well, so I had a good time weaving through that and finding goodies of Carolyn Muir and Captain Gregg as well as Martha serving coffee to her “mistress”.

treasure hunt coffee

Someone adored the Blue Willow china and I agreed: “She had that cup and saucer and it made me feel good about myself. I grew up seeing so many people collect tea sets or cup and saucers for show, but never use them. Almost any time I could, I’d buy up tea things for use. I have one set stashed but, for almost all my coffee and tea needs, I use everyday cups and saucers, usually from IKEA or an Asian market. Blue & white. Even used one today. I may be all messy now, but blast-it, I use a cup and saucer.”

Then I posted the rest of what I’d “caught.” This is just a sample:

treasure hunt late night talk

Here are the rest I grabbed from “Treasure Hunt”, hopefully in order. One thing I noticed that I love about this program is the same gentleness of some 1960s films when I’m looking for comfort-food. Everything’s cleaner, there is less clutter, and the mixture between the 1960s blends well with things from even further in the past. Also the nautical aspects. (I studied that and pirates for a long time. We can thank Astrid Lindgren for that, though.)

And the response?

“Well said!!”

Thanks. ❤


I hope when the retrograde ends, this radio series speeds into action. After all the a-holes, I think it’s about time to hear all the love. Don’t you?

Peace.

Maybe I’ve Been Looking In The Wrong Places

Just got a little feedback from a group called “Gothic Creations”. It took me a while to realize that many Gothic types, such as myself, are looking for people to talk to about what they’re doing. Well, I’ve done my bat embroidery, and then there is this BIG one… spooky, Gothic… audio and thought provoking… Hmm… I wonder where they are? I think I’ll start looking.

One thing is certain… a person who really loves my work gave up on DS… I think it was that desire for an upswing that just never happened… And so… here I am.

I was perusing Gothic photos and found one of those photos with a slogan. It said, “Happy Goth… Less Conformist Than Normal Goth.” I had to burst out laughing, “That’s me!”

I adore that cheery bloke in the background!

So, what I have here is a project and one I’m hoping you will enjoy. However, having internet woes, transportation woes, and loneliness woes, I started to become very frazzled as I continued. I just had so little help in creating this and I want to create so much more, but without dialogue over enjoyment, coupled with some severe haters and manipulative types, it’s just tough to keep trying. But it’s a labour of love, involves a ton of recognizable characters and has had thousands of dollars spent on it. With almost no help I managed to reach this podcast and radio drama to iTunes.

It is a huge mixture of old spooky shows and movies. All the characters help each other out and there are currently 12 episodes of it. I’ve worked over 2 years in creating it and it’s heavily downloaded. I discovered one of my problems is the romantic pairings in one of the fandoms. That fandom, Dark Shadows, is better now but has been an absolute nightmare for the shy fans of it for forty-years. The internet decay in communication that began about 2007 made that even worse. Now I have to encourage them to speak. I know they can, they’re just afraid. (Someone in across the Atlantic contacted me today. Very shy fellow.)

So, here it is, Wadsworth from Clue steps in first to help, Slimer shows up briefly, The Addams Family is included, Lily Munster also, Norman Bates has a cameo, Freddy Krueger is mentioned but not by name, The Ghost & Mrs. Muir are very involved, and it’s all hosted by two spooky characters from The Kids In The Hall: Sir Simon Milligan & Manservant Hecubus.

Please have mercy. I have been through Hell… truly

Gimme the ring, kissed and told
Gimme something that I missed (Gimme the ring)
A hand to hold, wild and what it seems (Gimme the ring)
Kill the king when love is the law
And the wheel turn round… (Gimme the ring)
Gimme dream child
And do you hear me call? (Gimme the ring)
On the loan and on the level
…Still on the floor (Gimme the ring)
Sing dream child
And do you hear at all?

(Sing)
(Sing)
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing…

Gimme siren, child and do you hear me?
Gimme siren, child, and do you hear me call?
Sing, child, of right and wrong
Gimme things that don’t last long
Gimme siren, child, and do you hear me call?

(Sing)
(Sing)
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me

Hey now, hey now now, sing…

On days like this
In times like these
I feel an animal deep inside
Heel to haunch on bended knees
Living on if and if I tried
Somebody send me… please…
Dream wars and a ticket to seem
Giving out and in
Selling the don’t belong
Well, what do you say
D’you have a word for Giving Away?
Got a song for me?

(Sing)
(Sing)
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing This Corrosion to me
Hey now, hey now now, sing…

I got nothing to say I ain’t said before
I bled all I can, I won’t bleed no more
I don’t need no one to understand
Why the blood run hold
The hired hand
On heart
Hand of God
Floodland and Driven Apart
Run cold
Turn
Cold
Burn
Like a healing hand
Like a healing hand
Like a healing hand
Like a healing hand

Gimme the ring:
