2012 Movie Fans: WELCOME!

Pointers on what “The Haunting of Collinwood” is about.

Margaret Josette Dupres, Chapters 6 – 10 (March 2019)

collage mjd 6-10d

[Adult Content]

 

Again, “Explicit” while being fairly clean for all that! This entry is the second podcast about the marriage novel, and exploring the chapters of it; six through ten.

I address one pointer of how to encourage me to share more of the novel so far. No high hopes on that score, of course.

This audio session goes through, step-by step, discussing what occurs in each chapter, my personal struggles and triumphs through this journey as well as the wonderful discussion that arrived from wonderful friends and kind strangers.

Chapters discussed are as follows:

Chapter Six – “A Broken Bed” (including the hilarious consequences…)

Chapter Seven – “Other Reactions” (Characters outside the marriage making the best of it.)

Chapter Eight – “The Whom of Many” (Yes, tons and tons of discussion from all sides about the author’s notes in the details of the big non-canon pairing of Julia/Barnabas.)

Chapter Nine – All of Us

Chapter Ten – Prior Disturbances Come To Haunt

Background music (which I would love to know that you purchased) for this podcast is:

Stoa’s “Maare” & “Hanuz Nitz” + Madonna’s “Human Nature”. (Although if you haven’t purchased a copy of “Human Nature” by now? I shall wonder what rock you were living under that was even farther sequestered into the ground than mine.)

Happy St. Patrick (McGoohan)’s Day!

MJD 1-5b

Listeners expecting to hear me swear will be disappointed. This entry is the long-awaited first podcast about the marriage novel, and exploring the chapters of it; one through five.

This audio session goes through, step-by step, discussing what occurs in each chapter, my personal struggles and triumphs through this journey as well as the wonderful discussion that arrived from wonderful friends and kind strangers who granted me a way to stop panicking from lack of talk and finally allowed me to begin sleeping again which had been a problem at the end of 2013 into the beginning of 2014.

Chapters discussed are as follows:

Chapter One – The Wedding Day

Chapter Two – The Wedding Night

Chapter Three – What We Whispered

Chapter Four – Josette Speaks

Chapter Five – Sharing The Past, The Present, And The Future


Background music (which I would love to know that you purchased) for this podcast is:

Stoa’s “Sakrileg” & “La Lune Blanche” + Aurora Sutra’s “Consecrated Lover”.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Workshop With Osheen Nevoy (+ New Years2018/2019 Update)

20182019newyears1e

 

Beginning with a basic explanation to this podcast series, then how garnering discussion for this series improved and how unfortunate societal changes created further problems.

 

In the workshop we explore how Randall & Hopkirk could work in “The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows” and a load of banter about most of the shows already involved. (Thank you, Osheen!)

 

Considerations of (The Real) Richard III in tandem to how Barnabas Collins’ character has been portrayed in fanwork. Concern over future generations. A big insight in the learning process via media entertainment; the example used is “Animal Crackers” with The Marx Brothers. Recognition of mistakes in a recorded world.

 

What is happiness? If you want better in life you have to figure out what “better” is. The “guilt” issue explained . Meanwhile, I’d rather you enjoy the show and tell me what you enjoy and why you do.

Interview with New Fan: Melissa (podcast)

new fan212c

 

(Autumn 2018/Spring 2016)

This podcast focuses on a new fan to Dark Shadows and why it makes sense that would-be good fans to this 1960’s television show don’t speak up. Melissa discusses her enjoyment of my fanwork, Dark Shadows and Jonathan Frid as well as Barnabas Collins. Our continual friendship flows through this podcast which is much attributed to Lisa Weyenberg connecting us. (Love you, Lisa!!!)

 

The interview displays what a new fan must contend with: Hate for Barnabas Collins, bizarre worship for Julia Hoffman. which has nothing to do with her strengths, feeling embraced on fan groups *at first* and then feeling like one must “stop talking”. Why Barnabas Collins is “the family guardian” and why Jonathan Frid is a class-act.

 

Melissa’s personal experiences with previous entertainers, such as David Warner and Sharon Lentz, and Melissa being able to talk to both of these wonderful people. Fun time with Melissa and I watching “Dark Shadows” as well as dealing with the new technology ruining all of our lives, and why. How social media destroys our relationships. Our watching an episode of “Dark Shadows” together, finally, and how fun it was.

 

Wrapping up with how Melissa ended-up unknowingly buying a bootleg copy of “Dark Shadows” and how she dealt with that after purchasing a true copy of the coffin box. Also providing a comparison of our making fun of Victoria Winters always saying “I don’t understand” into many fans becoming that very cliché.

 

At the end, I share a celebration of Jeremy Brett as Sherlock Holmes, which is a show that is also provided by MPI Home Video. And a loving quotation for Melissa via all this.

The Tandem Is Back! (Halloween 2018)

Tandem is Back 2018c

 

Enthusiastic history and future of this show. Why the Q & A works so well. Thanks to pen pals and encouragement to folks who want to get in touch. How the like-button is very harmful. Advice as to how to get your own tandem and skills to return.

 
Variables in the growth of The Pit series, including how Helena Clara Bouchet and I became friends.

 
Silly gossip versus good gossip. How old and new episodes are built. Reaching 21 due to what’s happening in 20, a scene with Maggie Evans and Carolyn Stoddard. Working with memory and reincarnation.

 
How small things can cause major problems such as The Northeast Blackout of 1965.

 
Finding the right people, much appreciation and fun stories.

 
A little discussion about the novel in terms of embracing the darkness.

Non-Crackly Spoilercast (October 2018)

2018 October Non-Crackly

 

After a few words of wisdom via Osheen Nevoy, a bit of personal news which includes Michaelmas and how we celebrate September 29th each year. Updates about upcoming episodes in The Pit of Ultimate Dark Shadows: 18, 19, and some discussion about the rough draft completion of episode 20.

 
Understanding The Addams Family, Barnabas and Maggie growing as a couple, comparisons between characters in fun spooky and drama spooky, how Chris Jennings will be handled, working with Captain Gregg, needing help with Amy, David and upcoming ghosts, how I’m keeping Tony Peterson in the show.

 
Thoughts and theories about Josette duPres’ character as a reincarnation. It’s still a mystery overall but *what* a mystery! ^_^ (Touching on a few other stories entailing reincarnation.)

 
Focusing on the Tom Baker era of Doctor Who, how we’ve been enjoying that, how far we’ve gotten re-watching it, as well as factors in the culmination of my ideas to include The Doctor back in 2013.

 
Current considerations of how older fans of Dark Shadows might react badly to Halloween and the possibilities of why; essentially another generation gap between younger fans and elder fans. (Fellow Goths: If you don’t understand your parents? This just might help a little bit.)
