So as not to muck up the Dead Pool, I'll post this here.

I was vaguely associating Barnabas Collins with a board game. So I googled it. Yes! I remember this game now!

And the site is awesome. I keep seeing games that I remember.

I had the Dark Shadows game. It also came with a set of vampire teeth. It wasn't a board game in the true sense of the word ... you used the spinner and it told you what skeleton parts to hang on your scaffold.

I loved Dark Shadows, and even to this day I think that Barnabas Collins was the coolest vampire ever.

As I said in the Death Pool thread, I really think what killed Jonathan Frid was seeing the trailer for the movie.

Even I was horrified.

Levon Helm has died. Drummer/vocalist for The Band.

Adam "MCA" Yauch, of the Beastie Boys, died today at 47. Jesus, that's my age, and it wasn't even drug or alcohol related. Fuck cancer.

Thanks for the great memories, Beastie Adam. :(

In memoriam, my favorite Beastie song:

we must listen to the same radio feed....

Actually I saw it one of the TVs in the hallway here (the number call system on one side of the screen, this one had the news on the other side.)

The soundtrack to many college memories.

I love that song too.
I have great memories of driving around Wales for my 30th birthday singing along to that album. That and The Best of Dolly Parton :)

So manoeuvring into the tiny hotel carpark I would either be wailing along to Jolene or shouting "and the boys blamed me for bringing her home!"

infinite monkey 05-04-2012 02:40 PM

I love that! I listen to Jolene from time to time too...and the contrast between Dolly (LOVE her) and the Beastie Boys is the awesome! :)

No, it wasn't. Credibility Gap.

I hadn't heard of that before! So Lenny and Squiggy worked together before Laverne and Shirley...and then Lenny (sorry, Michael McKean) was with Shearer in Spinal Tap. All Credibility Gap folks. Coolness.
