Goodbye, Mr Frid. It seems like only yesterday I followed the life of the character you created, everyday after school. You are my second goodbye this week. Dark Shadows was a source for my interest in so many things, including my interest in architecture. I wanted to work behind the scenes in special effects because of you. I learned some vampire history, but I also learned a lot of world history because of you.
It was fun to be a little scared as I walked home through the woods those winter afternoons after watching Dark Shadows with friends. I remember thinking what it would be like to live in Collinwood, and wearing fabulous old fashioned clothes, and being in a world outsiders could never fathom. An elegant and somewhat, but always tastefully dangerous world.
Goodbye Mr. Frid and thank you!
