Instructional Manual (April/May 2018)


Basic information for various sites for this series and how to use them to comment on episodes; this is mainly in the direction of the url https://thepitofultimatedarkshadows.wordpress.com/ Plenty of guidance in how to use these sites. Welcoming if a listener only wants to focus on a single character, fandom or cameo. Old internet rules for The Pit Crew. What makes me happiest: Commentary. Examples: My reading of Tito’s commentary for "Episode 5: Saving Pop" and Lisa’s commentary for "Episode 15: A Blundering Succubus". Some examination of Willie and Sarah’s interactions, as well as Maggie merging her memories together. Discussion of the “Dark Shadows” movie and Lisa’s wonderful reaction to that, and how I altered my offering to introducing more people to the series when it became more easily available. Social media, where it comes from, and how complaining about the people in areas that it comes from is paradoxical to our current social behaviour. (If one hates people on the West Coast, how is it applicable to use the addictive social tools they build to complain about them?) How critiquing once had socially redeeming value and then degenerated into “bash-culture”, which is, ultimately, bad for your health. Pen pal information for L.W.A. and how Hidden Object and I maintained our friendship. The importance of correspondence. Our natural reactions to light and movement. My struggle against social media addiction and the rewarding results. Helping a new fan of Dark Shadows and sending DVDs to her of the original series while comparing what she already knew. Consideration of villains and how they blend in to the storytelling. The importance of villains in stories, basic and complicated concepts. News about Auntie, too. How, oddly in this age, letter-writing is managing better than solely using the internet.
