  1. That life affirming moment when you discover that your new love interest's birthday is January 5th. #mustbetheone

    1. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      Yaaaassss! January 5th will always be a special day.

  2. My grandparents celebrated their 53rd anniversary today.  My grandfather taught private music lessons in their home, and his daily routine was lunch and All My Children.  That's how my dad was familiar with characters like Phoebe and Chuck long before he met my ABC Daytime obsessed mom.  When my grandmother retired in '79, she joined my grandad with the daily AMC viewing until cancellation.  I think it's pretty amazing that combined, minus vacations, appointments, the odd errand that ran longer than expected, they clocked thousands of hours of AMC viewing, seeing at least 90% of the show's run.

      Uh oh!  Are Susie and Helmie not groovin' for you?  Thanks for the warm wishes.

      Weird, looks fine on my screen.

  3. Mmm, oh Whitney...

     

  4. Man, it sure did my heart good to see my Shaka SuLu on Long Island Medium. I miss her, I miss Erica, but checking in with Miss Lucci, still living her charmed Garden City life is all that I need, really.

  5. Would you rather see the debut of a brand new daytime soap with a dream team cast and crew, or the dvd release of a limited number of classic episodes of the soap of your choosing?

      I think it is strange that SONY has Days and Y&R saved, but we can't view it. Is it not digital, is that the problem?

      At this point, I'd go with a new soap. The genre desperately needs a kick start.

    4. All My Shadows

      All My Shadows

      I'm firmly in the camp that cannot fathom why we've never seen any kind of Y&R, DAYS, or GH release. Not even for general pop culture interest? I'm sick of the excuse that soaps have too many episodes and no one wants to watch episodes out of context.

  6. In from the cold, head on the pillow, watching Judge Judy, and the likelihood of me going back out tonight steadily drop percent by percent.  Any good marathons on TV tonight?

      Just plug into Kathy and Anderson on CNN for the next 4 hours. It'll be heaven. 

  7. I love how Encore Black airs its classic sitcoms DVD style, no commercials, no edits, complete with tag scenes.  It's a little jarring though when the next thing they air is something like Jungle Fever and people are humping and cussing up a storm.

  8. I'm convinced that this didn't air in my market because there is no way that it would've escaped my memory: http://youtu.be/lr26W_OPnfc

      Cheap, I found that article too! I was surprised that this aired 5x/wk.

      I really need to see a full episode.  Seems like they were biting off of Love American Style.  When I saw special guest star Lydia Cornell, I flatlined.

    4. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      There are five episodes of it, which were aired as a test run for run week and that is as far as it got. That video is pretty high quality, so I imagine that there is at least one episode out there somewhere.

  9. Granted, I don't have much to say about the stories these days, but I'd greatly appreciate it if a tech savvy person would create a how-to thread for the updated board... how does one respond to posts without a sloppy and confusing mess of messages in one's post, how does one post pictures and videos embedded in the post instead of showing links or embarrassingly long urls/Internet speak, et cetera... I'm lost and I never want to come here anymore because the simplest efforts of engaging with the SON family has become such a hassle and I just give up and say F it.

      Ha!  Indeed.  I just re-read my status update, I apologize for my crankiness.  I'm just frustrated.

      Tell me about it. I'm still posting and blogging but it REALLY is a lot harder now. Wish it was sorted out.

  10. This Double Dates episode of Small Wonder is blowing. my. MIND.

    1. sivad40

      sivad40

      I watched the same episode too.

  11. Any of you catch the preview for The Wiz?  I'm looking forward to it.  I find it hard to criticize her because she seems like such a lovely, funny person, but I don't think QT's singing voice is up to par for these roles she books.  Makes me wish Nell Carter was still around, or Jennifer Holliday had a shot.

      Speaking of "The Wiz," Miss Ross & Co. are making a total shamockery of it right now on TVOne ("Where Bougie Black Life Unfolds").

      I just saw it.  I'm assuming that because they were in rehearsals, no one was doing everything full out but I can't help but wish that Evilene was a dyed in the wool Broadway actress/singer.  Jennifer Holiday could've been amazing.  I know I mentioned her before but Tonya Pinkins has blown me away when I saw her song live onstage, so I know she'd also have made a great Evilene but I'm hoping the MJB will, in the end, surprise me.

      Also, I heard there will be a tour when this TV performance is done so some of these actors will probably be replaced.  I doubt that MJB, QL, Common, Neo and Uzo Aduba will be able to do the stage as they often have tours, films and TV shows of their own to return to.  Maybe this will mean future opportunity for more B'way talent.

  12. I'm surprised that SON hasn't done a front page article on Nathaniel Marston's passing.  Is everything all right with the SON staff?

    1. AllMyDaysatGH

      There hasn't been an actual article since Sept 20, 2015 !

  13. Is there a good-looking people Tinder?

    1. YRfan23

      YRfan23

      meh, I'm sort of indifferent about dating sites, though I guess these days it's the only way to find someone...

    2. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      For the most part good looking people aren't on apps or websites. If there is one thing that remains best kept old fashioned, it's that meeting people in still best done in person.

    3. YRfan23

      YRfan23

      I agree...even though it's been a good while since I've really been in a relationship, I just hope to meet that someone in person.

  14. I am really missing All My Children today.  One of my most precious AMC   memories is from, in hindsight, January 5th, 1990, coming home from school that evening, and my mother describing to me what she saw on her little black and white TV at her work desk that day... AMC got new opening titles, "wif all dey pictures... Joe and Roof... in dey frames... and at da ind, Urrica's picture falls into da book..."  Imagining all of that before actually seeing it?  Priceless.  I miss the days when we scheduled Friday doctor/dentist appointments around AMC.

      I went back and just glanced through some of our threads from 2006-2007 a few days ago, watching some of the corresponding scenes on YouTube, and I can't believe I'm feeling nostalgic over even THAT stuff. AMC was just a special place with special people, and it hurts so much to not have it living and breathing anymore.

      I look at my post count and wonder where I found the time!  We had a ball (and a fair share of drama) in those weekly/daily threads... hell, getting daily threads was drama in and of itself, iirc.

      Sometimes it's hard to remember just how active this place used to be.

  15. Anybody else watching SNL?  Demi Lovato is going to blow her voice out if she keeps singing like that.  She cracked three times.  I hope she's not touring anytime soon, I don't think her voice could take it.

      I generally think Demi sounds amazing!

      I actually liked the melody of that Someone Like You knockoff song, as well as the timbre of her voice, but it's an unsupported voice.  She is singing way too hard from her throat instead of her diaphragm and that's how a lot of singers get nodules and do other types of damage to their voices.  She was acting the hell out of that song and when she dropped her head at the end I wasn't sure if it was dramatic affectation or, "Damn, I cracked 3x on national television and I don't think I'm going to be able to talk tomorrow."

    4. ReddFoxx

      ReddFoxx

      I watched the clip and that was extremely rough. It sounded like she already had already over stressed her voice and was further pushing it. Wonderful singer, but painful technique.

  16. Remind me again, who lives in the DMV?

      Millie Jackson must play this part. She would be a riot, because she's naturally a character in her concerts and I think she could act given the chance.

      And if not Millie, Pam Grier would be another good choice.

    3. Khan

      Millie for the win!  "Go," she would say to Cookie or whoever crossed her, "follow your rainbow!"

      I remember watching Judith Light in the Ryan White TV movie she did during WTB? when I was a little boy and what an emotional ride that was for me.  That movie really solidified Judith's dedication to AIDS activism and this all seem... I don't want to say surreal.  Meanwhile, is it just me or did it seem pretty loaded when he said he hasn't spoken with Alyssa in a long time? #startingshit

      I am very sorry for your loss. As for "lost", I swear that FB is the showcase of bad spelling and grammar.

  21. I AM A SWEDE and frequentsoapfan are probably my two favorite user names here at SON.  I know it's a doll, but I imagine frequent looking exactly like her avatar in real life, just as I'm all, "Who's this James E. Reilly you speak of, that man's name is Toups."

  22. RIP Yvonne Craig.  Lots of great after school/summer vacation memories... you always knew you were in for a treat when Batgirl's Batcycle roared up at the end of the opening titles.

  23. I read that Rosie O'Donnell's daughter Chelsea is off her medication and missing with her therapy dog.  Prayers with her and the family, this must be terrifying for them.

      Understandable.  It would be neat if we could pick either/or.  The only thing that bothers me about the update is the way the status updates are truncated and you're transported to a user's profile page.  An awful lot of clicking going on.
