  1. The Politics Thread

    +1 Yeah, I thought about the fact that this poster is a troll. I posted a reply that was very curt and abrupt because I suspected that poster's trolling. I don't want to waste my time. I think I'll just put that one on ignore, tbh.
  2. The Politics Thread

    Ellison can be voted out and replaced by the people of Minnesota, a Supreme Court justice CANNOT. Supreme Court Justice is a lifetime appointment. One single Supreme Court Justice can tip the balance and therefore change federal laws (for a generation, at least). Any fool knows this. You are making false equivalencies. You get a grip and stop being basic.
  3. OLTL Tribute Thread

    I remember that he belonged to that cult. At the time, it wasn't clear to me what his origins were. I haven't watched since I first saw it, so I can't be entirely sure. Where he came from seemed murky to me.
  4. Soap Stars - Where are they now?

    Not sure whether I'll tune in tonight but I thought I'd post this here.
  5. The Tennis Thread

    You're welcome @BellaCuore. Glad you enjoyed it.

  7. The Tennis Thread

    Oh no, it used to be fun! I admit that it's not always fun or memorable but I've enjoyed the finals for the past few years. I'm just concerned with Piqué wanting to transform it into some FIFA/World Cup also-ran. And FIFA (and by extension, The World Cup) has had some major problems with transparency and corruption.

    This sounds like a recipe for World Cup-style corruption.
  9. Y&R 1980s Character returns

    ATWT did something like this in the final decade of the show so I'm always cynical when a soap that is one a downward slide makes moves like this. The problem is when the soap wants to try to generate excitement and interest among longtime viewers but then casts a different actor, most likely, so that they can write the character as they see fit--even if the character bears little to no resemblance to who he/she was in the past. In a sense, they are drawing on the feeling of goodwill that fans have on the show's history and that character, yet end up alienating some of those same longtime fans by presenting a character that seems like a totally new character, not the one they remember. Because Y&R seems to be into changing so many character's trajectories/backstories, it wouldn't surprise me if they've elected to do something similar with Matt Miller. ...but hey, it's been ages since I've actually watched Y&R, so...who knows?
  10. 2018: The Directors and Writers Thread

    In quite a few posts in the Y&R/Y&R Spoilers threads, I've mentioned Angelica McD in tandem with Mal Young because she (besides Kent) is the constant throughout the many regime changes at this show. I did wonder whether the Rosales family was on her wishlist but I never stopped to process the fact that Rosas is her maiden name. How narcissistic of her, lol!
  11. OLTL Tribute Thread

    So interesting that you mentioned that because while I watched the OLTL 2.0 a few years ago, I couldn't help but wonder what it would've been like if the show had brought in a family for Jeffrey King (Corbin Bleu) and I though of Ellen Holly reprising her role as his grandmother, with Victoria Rowell, playing the mother. I invented an entire storyline in my head and honestly, I've only seen clips and read about EH's character on OLTL. It would've been fab, imo.
  12. The Politics Thread

    People are complaining that someone from the Ted Cruz campaign is sending out fraudulent mailers ...AGAIN. Apparently it has happened before.
  13. Help: Is there a way to ensure AutoPlay is off when embedding a video into thread posts?  Sometimes when I embed a video, the video plays on a loop and I haven't been able to stop it from playing over and over.

    Can someone help? Is there something in the Source code that can help?  

    Halp! Please.:unsure:

      Awwwww :( 

      There has to be some tekkies in here with some input.

      At this point, I feel like it's Streamable's fault.  I did a quick check online and I'm seeing that all videos that used Streamable software play on a loop! 


      It's a shame because Streamable was so easy to use, but I unless someone from the company gets back to me with instructions on how to make sure the video doesn't keep looping, I'll have to find another free software to use (preferably one that I don't have to download and take up space on my computer).


      This is becoming too complicated just to post/embed some clips.

  14. The Tennis Thread

    Maria has been fully active in about a handful of tournaments since her return from the ban for meldonium. She had good results in Stuttgart last year but other than that, I can't really remember any other place where she had got results that were above mediocre...thoughts?
