Sing with me Darlings. C'mon, Precious. Open those vocal chords
and let your soul pour out your mouth in harmony with my golden tones!
Sherry Mercurio, you take the mike too, sweetheart and let's duo this karaoke
like it's done uptown, uptown in MOTOWN, that is... Cozy right up here
beside me, look me in the eyes and let's sing together about what we luvvvvv.
Gather round me, loveys. Kate, Dayna, Kathy, JenJen, everyone!!
Sing with me! With with all yo might! Be my Pips, O Gorgeous Ones!!!
"Socks that are rolled
into pants so tight-fittin,
Eyes that look soulful and lips that look bitten,
Promises made that are tied up with strings.
Deese are a few of my fav-o-rite things.
Armani-clad bonies and threats made most brutal
A guy who just isn't quite right in da noodle.
Someone with shoesies whose tippies have wings.
Deese are a few of my fav-o-rite things.
Explosions and shoot outs and glassware that crashes,
Arson and blackmail and really strange rashes
Fat money clippies and diamond clad rings
Deese are a few of my fav-o-rite things.
Kissing Brenda againnnnn,
On island or dock
He just can just hear his...
sock (*gasp* Lenore!!! You BAD GIRL!)
And he'll kiss them becausssseee heeeeee...... CANNNNNN.
doo doot da doo doot da doo doot da
Congratulations. You're now going to have that song in your head for at
least a day. You're welcome.
Now on to the goss-ippy. Of course, the biggest yackety yack is about
Wednesday, which we shall now dub Wind-popping Wednesday instead of Mind-blowing
Monday since the shows are two days behind. Don't forget: NO AMC!
GH, OLTL with DORIAN'S RETURN, then GH again.
No apologies from Brian "Demographic" Frons for centering the Fortieth
Anniversary of General Hospital around Sonny. I mean, really, what else
would you do? *blink*blink* In the Apr 1st issue of SID (how ironic
- smirk), Frons says of the episode, "I wanted to
say to the audience, 'After 40 years, GH is still the best soap on daytime. It's
exciting, thrilling, and we love that you love it.' And the best way I could
think to do that was to 'supersize' it, and give everybody a double dose."
Great. More of what we see every day. I'm betting that with all the
money he makes, he can afford a whoooole lot of whatever he's been smokin.
It's definitely an April fools' joke if he thinks THAT is going to honor 40
years of shows, 38 of which totally blows away what we're watching on a day to
day basis. Nah. Nothing there.
HEY, WAIT A SECOND!! Aren't we supposed to be getting daily 30 second
walks (I think 30 seconds qualifies as more of a 'dash' than a 'walk') down
memory lane every day this week?? Does that start on Wind-popping
Wednesday since it was supposed to be Mind-Blowing Monday? I WANT MY DASH,
We were told that Sonny makes a heartbreaking decision about Carly and Baby
after they drop through the ice. Now we learn that it involves medication
Carly needs to avoid a stroke, but would likely kill the baby. He's
praying over her and she hears his voice and starts to respond just before
Monica is going to inject the medication. Carly wakes up, declines the
medication and everything turns out fine, thus making a mockery of Westernized
Sonny takes an easier hand with Jason and Courtney, at least for a while.
Later, Sonny's paranoia takes him over to the point that he almost takes a shot
at Carly when she opens the door of the penthouse.
Even Maurice Benard is pushing for Sonny to have some kind of resolution to
his depression, medication, therapy, something. He says he's having a
blast playing Sonny's slide into madness.
Get ready, Darlings!! April showers bring Zander hours! Lots of
yummy Zander stuff coming up. I'm betting 3/4 of the cast are reaching out
to touch the hem of Chad Brannon's garment as he becomes the first of "... and
the rest!" (think Gilligan's Island) to break through the unseen wall into that
narrow, narrow GH spotlight.
Good news about Emily! As a lot of you have probably already heard on
message boards across the net, it's not "get your phreak on" drugs that Emily's
injecting in an upcoming scene, it's "get your HEALTH on" drugs.
Evidently, she has a condition that requires medication and the unfolding of
that is going to be instrumental to the unfolding of their reconnect.
Nope. Robin Christopher isn't leaving. Nope. There's no AMC
crossover. Nope. Kristina Wagner isn't going to B&B.
Maybe... there is a Cassadine hope here and there. Supposedly, DOOL and
GH both have approached Stephen Nichols about a return to daytime. Dare we
hope? I vote YEAH! I'm pretty mercenary about recasts and as much as
I love SN, I'm totally open to a recast if he doesn't want to come back.
With Tyler Christopher returning, I'd do about anything to get a Cassadine hold
back on the show.
You folks who are
looking to scoop up Brenda's latest wedding dress for your own nups has best
save your sixpence early. It's a recreation of a designer dud by Versace,
created by GH costume designer, Lori Robinson. You ain't gonna find that
one at "Brides R Us."
It was hard not to choke up my root beer when I was reading some of Executive
Producer Jill Farren Phelps' comments about GH. I should have put them on
the "Interesting Quotes" page from last week. "GH is still a show that
values family, romance and high-stakes adventure." "It's a slap in the
face to the investment they [the long-term fans] make when we don't do that
history justice. That said, [with] a show like General Hospital, which has
lasted 40 years and has been written by so many different people, we sometimes
veer off on a road that inadvertently steps on a piece of history. We
never mean to do it -- and the viewers are the first to let us know when we do."
Um, yeah. I think I know who Brian's smoke partner is...and who's been
tired of talking about this show. Just one more mahvelous thing. The
little buddy of GH, Dylan Cash, won the 2003 Young Artist Award for Best
Performance by a Young Actor Age 10 or Under in a Television Series, Comedy or
Drama at the 24th annual Young Artists Awards held on March 29, 2003 in
Hollywood. The Young Artist Awards recognizes young artists under the age of 18
in television, motion pictures, theater and music. Dylan was nominated
along with Patrick Allen Dorn (THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL, CBS), Luis Armand
Garcia (THE GEORGE LOPEZ SHOW, ABC), Demetrius Joyette (DOC, PAX), Charlie
Stewart (LIFE WITH BONNIE, ABC) and Austin Majors (N.Y.P.D. BLUE, ABC).
Way to go, Dylan!!
Thought it wasn't happening? Think again! Super Soap Weekend West
has been scheduled at Disney's California Adventure Theme Park May 31-June 1.
This will be a combo weekend for OLTL and AMC. Details are supposedly
Look for a Reggie to be around for a while. Michael Jordon (no, not
that one) who plays Reggie scored a contract with AMC.
Nope, nope, nope! Won't be no girlly lips touching on ABC. "A
relationship" is looking to be explored between Binky and Lena, but it's not
ID'd as a love relationship and there definitely won't be any sliding across the
sheets. No way. No how. Now YOU, BIANCA!! Back in that
chastity belt, young'un!
Life with Bonnie precludes Life with Viki. Mark Derwin's prime time
series was picked up for a second season, so don't expect Ben to wake up from
that coma anywhere soon. Frank Velentini (EP of OLTL) gave an official
statement to SOD saying, "No decision has been made at this time about what's
going to happen with the character." Derwin has been left with an open
door to return at any time, but not anywhere soon.
There had previously been talk about Ben finally biting the bullet to allow
Viki to "move on," but at this time, it looks as though it will be status quo.
Exciting news is that we
are going to be having a repeat performance of the fabulous Sylvia Miles as
Roxy's mom, Stella. We are on the verge of Mysterio hypnotizing Roxy and
Nigel into love and if all goes well and Sage gets his way, it will be for a
wedding. Oh sure, I know it's not likely, but it was fun to dream. WHAT a
couple and how exciting that two of my favorite people on OLTL are getting so
much airspace on the show. Sylvia Miles to boot? I have a new
favorite show. I'm a happy, happy boy!
Keep your eyes open during the jailhouse dance scene in the award magnet,
"Chicago" and you'll notice a familiar face. Susan Misner, the ill-fated
"Grace Davidson" from OLTL is dancing her little feet off. :)

And with that, darlin, Sage is outta here. Have a happy week, loveys!
