  1. He made some bizarre statement on-camera too. Sorry to besmirch this thread with his face. CNN is back to wall-to-wall Trump again. They couldn’t even give her a day as they did Prince (which was more sudden, I know). MTV Classic (which isn’t part of my cable package) is airing videos and performances.
  2. I wonder how SH will play as Susan.
  3. Genetics can be odd, and I personally don’t look at all like my sisters, but it’s always nice when actors who play family members share *some* resemblance. Just watched Hunter Tylo and Jacqueline Macinnes Wood as mother/daughter on B&B, and of course they favor each other right down to the surgically enhanced sharply carved cheekbones. Which other soap relatives have been particularly well-cast, beyond just mere passing similarity? Y&R: I watched some ‘80s episodes, and Terry Lester really, really looked like a young Jerry Douglas to me. Peter Bergman not so much. (If Terry Lester were alive and still playing Jack, this current Abbott paternity mess would be that much harder to buy.) AMC: Susan Lucci and Alicia Minshew looked a lot like mother and daughter, much more than SL and SMG. Actually all of the surviving Kane women looked like a family. GH: Jason and A.J. were only half-brothers, but man did Steve Burton and Sean Kanan look similar. Oh and this:
  4. Ha! Speaking of Patti, this clip from Oprah’s 40th birthday special with Aretha, Patti, and Gladys as guests has been making the rounds:
  5. Yeah I saw a bunch of shouty (is there any other kind?) Eric Braeden tweets earlier this week in tribute to Aretha and her Y&R fandom.
  6. 2:30 - 3:13 = the part where amateur/karaoke singers embarrass themselves trying to imitate the Queen. This is funny:
  7. Can’t believe they are both gone.
  8. Sadly she has passed. https://apnews.com/bec7e5ec9193462ebb7dce2047ef9c46
  9. NYT: 60 times Madonna changed the culture: https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2018/08/16/arts/music/madonna-birthday-impact.html
  10. By now, we’ve all heard she isn’t well, and I know there are many fans here, so I thought it would be appropriate to start an appreciation thread. During college, my friend and I would lounge around in my dorm and just soak in every track from her 30 Greatest Hits double CD. Other than Songs in the Key of Life, I don’t think there’s an album I’ve played more. My favorite song has always been “Angel,” with its spoken intro dedicated to her sister Carolyn and its almost unbearable sense of longing and loneliness.
  11. There are just too many to list! She lost me somewhere around Ray of Light, although there are select songs I enjoy post-1997/98. A short BBC by-the-numbers piece on Madonna’s career (with British chart stuff but some other stats as well): https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-45112992?ocid=socialflow_facebook&ns_campaign=bbcnews&ns_source=facebook&ns_mchannel=social
  12. The ladies making their entrances and greeting Andy was fun, but I thought it was unusually lacking in content for a HW reunion trailer. It makes me curious if the reunion itself will be lacking in content, especially with Luann not taking part.
  13. Ridiculous scene between Phyllis and Lily, but it’s par for the course. GT’s Phyllis may as well have been a completely different character from Stafford’s.
  14. Bad luck for Serena to face Kvitova in the second round in Cincy. Serena looked more solid than she has all year this week, so maybe this provides something to build on in NYC (and she’ll be fresher with this early loss).
  15. Thiem withdraws from Cincy; Garcia-Lopez takes his spot.
