    Days: Leo's Mom

    Uh, I've never liked seeing Chapman and Rikkart trying to out-diva one another.

    Rob Kazinsky is coming back as Sean Slater for a short stint this year: https://www.digitalspy.com/soaps/eastenders/a25932862/eastenders-sean-slater-rob-kazinsky-return-shock/

    Surviving R. Kelly

    Exactly it, she and her team are so damn transparent.

    Gaga’s delusional fans have been attacking Glenn Close left and right on Twitter with some of the most absurd ageist trash. I really detest that segment of her fanbase. She subtly has encouraged a lot of that crap from her fans as well. I know it did well at the box office, but everything this award season screams payola from Gaga and Bradley Cooper’s respective camps for ASIB. Luckily it doesn’t appear to be working outside of the expected music categories...

    Glad a real actress like Glenn Close won the Golden Globe. I hope this is the year Queen Glenn finally wins that elusive Oscar.

    Yes, Tiffany is Ricky and Bianca's daughter and neither is on the show. Bianca will likely never return as Patsy Palmer seems over playing Bianca and now happily lives in Malibu. I do think Bernedette/Tiffany are one of the stronger points in the show and it's been allowed to developed gradually as opposed to over night. I'd prefer them remain as friends though, as I can't bear the thought of watching Tiffany turn into another Sonia - a lesbian only when it suits her. I really enjoyed the scene on Friday with Kat and Tiffany in the vic talking about love and when you find it - it's moments like that which soaps no longer bother to do. Kat's next chapter is potentially the most exciting thing about her. If they really make a strong attempt to move her on from Alfie and her sexual abuse from Harry, it would be a great start. She's a stronger character than Alfie and he brings her down. Jessie Wallace has been on fire this whole stint and the show is very lucky to have her back. It's been great watching Kat back in action working in the Vic recently, she really added some excitement to the place. I also see a really nice friendship developing with her and Linda - much more believable than the friendship Linda and Sharon have. I think it will be a while before they try to find her another man, but it would have to be someone totally opposite from Alfie. I also think Kat's at a stage where she can occupy a similar role to what Bet Lynch had for years on Corrie. Letitia Dean is on vacation, hence why Sharon isn't on and the one decent story she's had in years. Mel's return has a big failure, especially with today's news. She's been back for a year and has not been integrated with the rest of the show - she and her set are totally isolated and she has no other meaningful relationships. She just doesn't fit into this show anymore, and it will take a lot of work to make her happen again. I did hear Tamzin extended her contract a bit, so maybe it's to play out the aftermath of this story and she leaves. I won't miss her as this whole stint has been pointless as hell.

    Classic GH Thread

    I think a lot of GH's problems started with Riche/Guza - I can't blame JFP for revolving the show around Sonny, Jason, and Carly as that had started long before she arrived. Sure she didn't help it, but the show was going in that direction regardless.

    Courtney's butch haircut and wardrobe didn't help that 84-85 stint at all as well...

    Personally, I think Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper are buying these nominations. It would be a shame if Gaga won an Oscar over a real actress.

    Madonna's 15 Best Songs: Billboard Staff Picks

    I agree, she has so many hits that everyone tends have to have very different list. Also, a lot of her songs that weren't hits or weren't released were also pretty good due to her extensive discography. However, most people will probably agree on Like A Prayer - it's sort of become THE Madonna song over the years. I've never particularly cared for Take A Bow for example, but it was her longest running #1 hit in the US (in the UK, it was her first single to actually miss the top 10 in many years at that point in her career). Ray of Light got her her first Grammy and it's one of her best selling and critically acclaimed albums, so I guess if they had to include one song from it, it would have to have been the title track.
  13. Even though they're edited down to hell, it's great to see so many American Top 40 countdowns from the 80's and early 90's pop up on YouTube. Particularly, really amazing to document Madonna's dominance on the pop singles chart during this era and how few have come close to rivaling it since. In fact, it gets overlooked now, but female artists dominated the pop singles chart in the late 80's/early 90's with Madonna, Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Paula Abdul, and Mariah Carey regularly charting and replacing one another at the summit.

      Music was so much better back then.  :wub:

      My local radio station plays the 70's and 80's American Top 40 countdowns on the weekends with Saturdays being for the 70's and Sundays for the 80's. Sirius XM Radio also broadcasts American Top 40 with Casey Kasam. He does the 70's and former MTV VJs do the 80's. I highly recommend getting Sirius XM Radio.

      Just heard one of the top 40 on YouTube and it's horrible. The ones on my local radio are unedited and the whole 4 hours block....it runs in the mornings here....same for the Sirius XM Radio...they play the entire 40 songs minus the requests and dedications.

    I don’t know what’s worse - Charlie Winter’s acting or his rapping...
  15. Is there anything more fake and doomed to fail than Priyanka Chopra and Nick Jonas?

    1. DRW50


      I'm tempted to say Sophie Turner and Joe Jonas, although they don't have as much desperation...Priyanka in particular just isn't going to be what she wants to be over here. 


      (to be honest I think Joe is hotter than Nick anyway...)
