For very personal reasons FTL was put on a very immidiant hiatus.
As the writer I've struggled in finding a way to bring it back. My whole timeline was thrown off.
FINALLY I feel like i've found the perfect way. As crazy as it will be, I think I've found a way to hook people and actually make it understandable.
I'm very excited. Later this week there will be more explanation.
Thank you all for being patient.
Sorry that the light faded for a bit, but put on your sunglasses

I sometimes take for granted just how much Holland-Dozier-Holland had to overcome to become such a touchstone of American music. I also take for granted at times just how much their songs resonated for generations, through nostalgia, or covers, or popping up as soundtracks on many romcoms or period pieces. These days, music tends to feel so derivative, and at times, choking on self-important misery. The lifeblood that Motown gave to this country made many stars, and made a magnate out of Berry Gordy, but Lamont Dozier will never fully get the credit he deserved.
I love so many of their songs, far too many to list, but this may be my very favorite, with the soul of Motown, always there to remind us of the heartache underneath the glitzy costumes and flawless choreography.
If the P&G shows ever see the light of day again, it wouldn’t surprise me if they showed up on the CBS owned Pluto TV. Pluto TV has a lot of classic TV content- including vintage Price is Right, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, and a ton of Goodson-Todman game shows on Buzzr. They also have a Soaps channel with Y&R and B&B episodes and a Dark Shadows channel. If you watch any of this content, P&G buys advertising blocks on the various channels. One day, I was watching one of the sitcom channels and every commercial in the 30 minute block was for a P&G product.
I'll just disagree with how the public is perceiving this and leave it at that. Not everything the doomers say is real and happening in the mainstream, and while yes, plenty of press are practicing GOP stenography while trying to fill column lengths until DOJ comments, the onus in the public eye remains heavily on Trump, not Democrats, despite Republican demands for explanations. Whereas for guys like the usual Do Something brigade, they always need an outrage point to fix on and act like it's the prevailing wisdom. Their entire trade is finding (or inventing) a way Dems have fùcked up and how they, the loud white guy (usually), can fix it. Waiting on DOJ means they can act like 'Dems are screwing up again!!' with little to no evidence, as Pelosi, etc. have all commented adequately.
And when DOJ does comment, this will all go away and they'll find something new to complain about and forget this existed.
