    I'd love for someone from Sony to tell me -- to my face -- what they thought was so "outdated" about scenes like these.  Everything about the scenes -- the acting, the directing, the set, the lighting and music -- was PERFECT.  It was perfect then, and even moreso now.

    It probably was seen as outdated by them because of the need to make daytime more like primetime.

  2. VCR recordings negatively effecting the ratings is something that I never considered. It makes a lot of sense, though. Soap Net was an attempt to accommodate viewers who worked in the daytime, but it came along too late. Pre-internet the networks would had to have used paper surveys among VCR surveys to collect data and that would have been tedious, but probably worth the effort.

  3. Like so many others, I got into soaps because of family. My mother and grandmother were ABC soap viewers, while my aunt was a Young and the Restless viewer, but I watched All My Children and One Life to Live with my grandmother.

  4. This is a hard one. I'm trying to think of soap stars who can sing, but the only ones I can think of wouldn't necessarily fit the parts. These are some people I thought of.

     

    Buddy - Wally Kurth (I could see him being able to convey Buddy's subtle desperation)

    Solange - Robin Strasser (Ah Paris! is perfect for an actress like her)

    Stella - Kim Zimmer

    I've seen some 'liberal' pundits saying this is a losing strategy for Trump to focus on Obama, but much of his base operates on racism and hate, and many on the left who are still pining for Bernie also operate on racism. Sadly the pivot to making it all about Obama will help maintain the turnout the GOP had from 2010-2016. 

    It might help him turn out his base, but it will also insure that black voters turn up to vote. To get reelected Trump needs lower turnout among Democratic base groups, particularly black voters because they can make the difference in Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin.

  6. It's confusing to understand how residuals work because there seem to be various ways that they are distributed. From what I've read residuals decline each time the show completes a run in syndication. https://www.backstage.com/magazine/article/calculating-sag-residuals-17706/

    For television shows, SAG residuals are calculated using a formula that utilizes the number of runs and percentage of minimum rate of compensation for the actor. For example, for reruns in syndication, the actor is paid 40 percent of the applicable minimum rate for the first rerun program, dropping to 30 percent for the second rerun, 25 percent for the third rerun, and so on until it reaches 5 percent for the 12th rerun and beyond. There are also residuals for foreign telecasts of the program; these are arrived at using an entirely different formula based upon the distributor's foreign gross.

     

    Some shows don't run in syndication all the time, so it's possible for some actors to not exhaust to 5% for a long time.

     

     

  7. There is a reason why none of the attorneys that MeToo recommended wanted to take her case and the only attorney she could get was a Trump supporting loon. She is not at all credible.

  8. Kellyanne Conway's biggest gripe is not getting accolades for being the first woman to manage a winning presidential campaign. She is a career political operative and Republican political operatives only care about advancement. She made it to the Oval Office and if Trump disrespects her family that's just something that she will accept to maintain her position.

  9. Once Biden asked the National Archives to release any complaint that Reade made she backtracked and said that she didn't make a complaint of sexual assault in her 1993 complaint, so she is basically confirming that there is nothing there. She also claims that she lost her copy of the complaint.

     

    It's also been revealed that she lied about taking acting lessons from Robert Reed. Her story is that he was a retired actor and helped her at 18, but the problem with that is that he never retired and worked right up until he died (she was 18 long before he passed away).

    And I feel slightly guilty for feeling little sympathy for them given the malice and hatred they are spreading around.

     

    Meanwhile I finally had to restock the house and saw waaaaay too many people without masks on here in San Diego. But I warned about this on Monday since the weather this week is in the 80s and 90s...a typical summer day. As if we are not on Lockdown. When things get extended, I don't want to hear A THING and I will be doing online dragging for the heck of it.

     

    I was thankfully my local grocery store is enforcing the 'no entry without mask' rule. 

    Common sense should tell people not to do something so obviously dangerous, so it's hard to feel sympathy for anyone who ends up doing this.

     

    And an agency in Maryland received over 100 calls about consuming disinfectant https://abcnews.go.com/Health/coronavirus-updates-china-reports-covid-19-deaths-9th/story?id=70324535&fbclid=IwAR0M7vBKPEBSd_pqCjvshsVi0sPj4TDJYdwPunsjj-qs4rRyxB96KsoB_pg

    Some Maryland residents, however, still dialed the Maryland Emergency Management Agency to ask about disinfectant use."This is a reminder that under no circumstances should any disinfectant product be administered into the body through injection, ingestion or any other route," the agency tweeted.

    Doctors also say that no one should consume disinfectant.

    Mike Ricci, the communications director for Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, said the state "decided to take the step of posting this alert after receiving more than 100 calls to our hotline."

  11. This is exactly what Putin wanted. The United States having damaged credibility and failures on display gives Russia an opportunity to step up to the front of the world stage. Not that Russia is fit to be on that stage at all, but they can influence smaller countries and possibility regain some of the power they had as the Soviet Union.

    All that idiocy tells me is Diaper Don was looking forward to being able to smear Bernie with the scary "socialism" label and was praying Bernie would be the nominee. But - despite being impeached because of doing so - his attempted smearing of Joe Biden did not work and now Don knows he must go up against him.

     

    Don is TERRIFIED of Joe Biden, hence all the machinations.

     

    So despite his constant wackadoodle rants, a part of me is happy because I know he is scared and miserable and it is all he deserves.

     

    And it isn't just Diaper Don. Martha McSally in Arizona was trying to tie Mark Kelly - who is beating her in polls - to Bernie and socialism (hence why the presidential nominee is important to down-ballot races!) and now that's gone. Oops!

    Trump most certainly wanted to run against Sanders. With Sanders having made so many positive comments about Cuba and the Soviet Union in the past there was plenty for Trump to exploit about socialism. Trump needed this election to not be an indictment on him, but based on fear and buzzwords. With the pandemic and jobs evaporating this race is a bigger indictment on a President since Carter in 1980.
