Getting in the mood to go see Dark Shadows…

greggorysshocktheater:

Christine Domaniecki was the regional winner of The Miss American Vampire Contest held in Palisades Park, NJ. As the winner Christine received a walk on in Dark Shadows episode 1126, and unfortunately her last name was incorrectly listed as Domaneck in the credits.  She was also a regular on Zacherley’s Disc-o-teen TV show, and later became a successful makeup artist for films and television, a career she’s still actively involved in today.

Personally one of the coolest things is she was my neighbor when I was seven years old and living in an apartment complex in New Jersey, she was one of the most fascinating adults I had met at that point in my life and one of my first crushes too.

Spring at the Zoo & Safari Park means one thing…BABIES! 

UGHH, this was way too much for anyone to possibly handle.

The Tiger.

And the Hippo.

And the Gorilla.

And all of them ughhhhh! I seriously wouldn’t mind it if you wrapped them all up and put them in a box shipped to my address. You should definitely do that SDZoo:D Or SDZSafaripark, whoever wants to ;D

:OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I just realized, I’ve posted pics of some of your guys’ red hogs and sumatran tigers, and I just saw them in the video. Also, I think a gorilla or 2 as well :OOO COOL BEANS.
