Wait, I beat the Jenner/Kardashians to a trend, wah?! I bought my pre-lit pink tree last year after passing a store with one out front while on the bus in The Mission District in San Francisco and knowing it was just that time in my life. It’s a bit more bubble gum pink than the ones above which I think works well Read more

A hundred bucks is overcharging since those preinstalled lights burn out after one season. Wait until after the holidays and pick one up cheap for next year.

I love walking and hiking! It really calms me down when I’m stressed. If I just walk around the neighbourhood I like to listen to podcasts.

I recently saw in Private Eye, who tend to be quite good on behind the scenes stuff, that many at the Palace are essentially expecting him to walk away from the Royal life in the near future because of how unhappy Meghan is with the definitely not racist coverage of her which the Palace has largely failed to stop and

Funny you should write this. I was around chronologically for the original but never really watched it despite a serious interest in supernatural literature, TV, and movies. I really don’t know why. Recently I had a procedure done to my shoulder that made it impossible for me to practice for several weeks (I’m a Read more

I was in junior high and high school when this first ran. Got hooked immediately. For one semester, I didn’t get home from high school until 5, so I couldn’t watch it (a couple of decades before VCRs) . The first day back to a regular schedule, I noticed hardly anything had changed in the story line. I loved that Read more

Yeah, don’t know what it was about the show that used to keep me hooked, but I always liked that Barnabas had those dark, sunken eyes. I thought it made him look very menacing. That aside, I always associate him with that cane and ring. Been awhile since I watched it, but I think I recall them having a werewolf and a

My college years! This was MUST SEE TV back then. It was dopey, filled with plot/scenery/dialogue holes you could drive a semi through. It was the professional wrestling equivalent of daily soap operas.

If and when you get done with the original (best) Dark Shadows, its two movie spin-offs, its two reboots (or three if you count the Tim Burton one), the radio show, the Big Finish series, maybe even the comic books, Marylin Ross’ paperback series, plus other novels that came after, you can watch Strange Paradise, a

ABC Daytime went back to the vampire well again in the early ‘00s on its short-lived soap Port Charles. The soap was broken down into 3-month-telenovella style arcs and a few of the arcs featured a vampire named Caleb. I recommend you get thee to YouTube.

The wife adores Dark Shadows and said it was her go to ‘rush home and plop down in the afternoon to watch as a kid’ (and considers my preference for Scooby Doo and Bugs Bunny to be childish and any elucidation to it being the same as some sort of insult). Read more

I am old enough to have watched Dark Shadows when it first aired. If my memory serves me right (and at my age that’s not a given) this show aired in Chicago at 3:30 p.m. We got out of school at 3:00 p.m. I lived a mile and a half from school and all the kids in my neighborhood would run home in order to be home in Read more

Shitty bar?! No way! I have fantasized about moving to Maine and opening a bar called the Blue Whale that only plays 60s-style garage music. I also own the entire series on DVD (in a coffin shaped box!) so I may be a little obsessed. Read more

I was one of those “kids” who ran from home from school to catch the latest episode at 3:30pm on Channel 7 in Chicago. This show holds a special place in the hearts of Boomers everywhere - I actually own the entire series on DVD in a coffin-shaped box, and also have a replica of Barnabas’s wolf head cane. Just wait Read more

Thank you for this. I may have to watch this. I was a child during the original run and I was forbidden (FORBIDDEN) from watching it because it was A. trash and B. fodder for nightmares. So I used to get completely incoherent updates every day from my friends Elaine Tardiff and Mary Stefanski. And they would interrupt Read more

My childhood bestie used to insist on eating dinner with her family while wearing Barnabas Collins fake fangs.

As someone who loves Thanksgiving above all else, this makes me want to declare an actual war on Christmas.
