Wasting Time Again

A couple of weeks ago I blogged on the old TV Horror-Soap Opera Dark Shadows and its main protagonist, the guilt ridden vampire Barnabas Collins.

Today as I came home from work I meandered into a second-hand shop and was looking at DVDs and CDs and came acrossed a set of DVDs of the first 40 episodes that included him for $6.00.

Needless to say, I'm not doing to much blogging today.

Maybe tomorrow.

I loved that show. He was really creepy, like Boris Karloff...

It's amazing how things like this can be fun and sidetrack us from everything else. I do it all the time :-). Hope you are enjoying them!!

Jonathan Frid was probably the only truly good actor on the show. The disk set included a recent interview with him(last couple years) and it is amazing how much he now looks like an older version of Rowan Atkinson (Mr. Bean)

lmc it is fun. Not so spooky like it was when I was 10 though.

Just saw James Arness on O' Reilly, as "Hero of the Week".

He's 83, and looking good for a man of his age. I didn't know he was at Anzio Beach, was wounded, and spent 18 months recovering.

John Wayne's company was responsible for launching the Gunsmoke TV show (which spun off from the successful radio show), and Arness and Wayne were close friends.

Gunsmoke was always a fave of mine, and is on TV land every night.

I have a DVD-recorder that I use frequently to preserve movies and old TV shows from
the satellite, and it was worth the 90 bucks it cost.

It's very relaxing to veg out and enjoy the old shows without the commercial annoyances from time to time.
