  3. Jean Passanante looks back at her career

    Nice that she looks back fondly on being a puppet for her networks and EP's.
  4. The Taylor Swift Thread

    At least she's not playing it as safe as some assumed she would - if it backfires, oh well, she tried. As I said before, maybe she cares more about being an albums artist rather than a singles artist with this new album. Perhaps it's not going to be as radio friendly as we're used to from her, but maybe it's more about the overall concept of the album as opposed to a bunch of radio-friendly singles. That whole part about "the old Taylor can't come to the phone right now" may be a metaphor for the next phase of her music career. Or maybe I'm reading too much into it.
  5. The Taylor Swift Thread

    Who knows, she could just go the Beyonce route and revert back to being an "albums artist" as opposed to a "singles artist." Either way, at least she's building anticipation for her product. I hope she stretches herself with this project artistically, but maintain her pop appeal at the same time.
  6. The P!nk Thread

    I just wish she'd take some chances again with her music again. I know the last time she really did (Try This in 2003), it was a commercial flop, but I know she has it in her to do so much more than the formulaic albums she's released in the last 10 years. I don't think she'll ever top M!ssundazstood (nor has she or should she try). That was her first time taking a chance with her music after LA Reid forced that faux-R&B image and sound on her with her first album. I know she and Linda Perry had a big falling out since then, but Perry [and Dallas Austin] gelled well with her in ways I don't think anyone else really has.
  7. The P!nk Thread

    If I'm honest, I haven't really cared for anything she's released since M!ssundaztood. A lot of it has been too samey for me since then. That said, I do think she's a decent vocalist and has it in her to be a great songwriter.
  8. 2017: The Directors and Writers Thread

    Probably freelance, didn't he direct a few DAYS episodes not long ago as well?

  11. Marcy Walker discussion thread (soap stuff)

    Marcy Walker never got this much attention when she was actually relevant...
  12. What Are You Listening To?

    The only version of this song that I care about. Definitely not Aretha's overrated whaling.
  13. When was the last GOOD return?

    Roger and Holly on GL in the late 80's...
  14. What Are You Listening To?

  15. Ugh, I hate that I'll be an emotional wreck saying goodbye to a co-worker/subordinate over the next week. I know people come and go often at work, and I'm happy for him and his new opportunity, but I hired this kid right out of college and mentored him for two years. I never really had that experience with anyone else (he was the first). I really invested a lot in him, and I hope he leaves knowing how much he's made me a better manager.

      Very nice sentiment. All managers/supervisors/bosses should exude this attitude.

    2. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      Beautiful words, BF. Similar to how I feel every year around graduation time.

  17. Would u take back JFP as EP of GH?

    Interesting JFP tidbit - this was posted in the GL thread, but looks like the first episode of GL she produced aired in July 1991. This channel is currently posting episodes from 1991, so very interesting to see how the change from Robert Calhoun to JFP may have impacted the show (obviously, Curlee and team are still writing it at this point).
  18. Guiding Light discussion thread

    Yeah, looks like that was JFP's first episode, very interesting to see how the switch may have impacted the show in the beginning now...
