    I know this is a long post but Scrimmage is constantly making me laugh and spit out what every I might be drinking at the time and here are just a few gems from Friday's posts and please Scrimmage don't ever stop making us LOL.

    Forgive me Scrimmage for cutting and pasting some of your posts but I’ve had a kind of difficult weekend and your humor made me laugh out loud and I had to give you credit in your own words as I could not quote them and make them as funny. Thanks for making me LMAO.

    Franco’s dialogue was the most convoluted, meaningless bunch of BS I’ve ever heard on this show, and that’s saying something since I remember when the Cassadines were planning to freeze the world.

    Lulu’s presence was as infuriating as it is unlikely. How did she know where to go, and how did she get into the exhibit anyway? And her reason for being there was as ludicrous as the fact that Jason can fire his gun about 95 times without reloading. Just another in a series of WTF moments in a subplot full of them.

    After yesterday’s impressive show, I’m afraid I’m on the side of the posters that were very disappointed in today’s episode. My opinion is simply: It SUCKED! This one was as bad as Kalup – BARF! Are you telling me out of all the weird acts in LA that THAT “GUY” is the best they could come up with?

    I guess we’ll have to wait and see if the body that fell from the roof is actually Franco, but I hope it is, and I hope he stays dead. He should be killed on principle, just for subjecting us to that hideous techno music, not to mention inflicting Kalup on us. BARF

    What’ll you bet that on Monday, the fufu crowd at the “Art Exhibit ” will burst into applause, thinking they’ve just seen Franco’s “performance.” Typical clueless, self involved, artsy types. Did you hear them egging on Franco to shoot faux Sam? Bunch of little Nazi’s! I thought Franco was going to blow them all sky high. What happened to that?

    What happened to scripts making sense? Did that go the way of songs with melodies and lyrics that you could actually remember, and maybe even sing?

    Thanks, Lovelymarlena. I’m flattered beyond words…well almost. Glad I could brighten your day. I’m sometimes afraid that I’m guilty of over-posting, but I’ll keep ‘em coming as long as all you guys will put up with me.

    ***off topic***

    As for my band, we called ourselves “Brotherhood” because we had an unusually tight bond that exists to this day after we lost our promising young guitarist in a tragic motorcycle accident. I think he was just about 21, same as the rest of us back then. We eventually became a pretty hot band on the club circuit back in the mid seventies. Then “Saturday Night Fever” came out in ’77 and ruined the live music business as all the clubs we had been playing became discos. It happened the same way that the invention of juke boxes killed the big bands back in my father’s day (he was a musician too). The huge ballrooms all around the country that employed travelling swing bands were run out of business almost overnight by smaller, cheaper “juke joints.” Musicians then gravitated away from dance music to listening music, featuring the individual skills of the musicians in smaller groups, playing in more intimate settings. And so Jazz was born.

    Now when I go to see a band perform, a large percentage of what I’m hearing is actually coming from a computer. That’s becoming just as true with local acts in clubs as it has been for a long time with touring acts in concert. I guess Milli Vanilli was ahead of their time. Nothing is completely “live” anymore, with a few notable exceptions like Prince, Bruce Springsteen, and the Eagles, who make it a point not to use pre-recorded tracks in live performances. As Prince said: “All THESE microphones are ON, baby.”

    Just to kind of finish my story and pull the loose ends together:

    The parallel with what happened to my Dad in the big bands, and me, thirty years later is very distinct. In my time, after the disco craze hit, the musicians like me who played in variety / dance bands tried to adapt to modern tastes by playing disco music, but it wasn’t what the crowds wanted to hear. They wanted the Bee Gees, not some band trying (and usually failing) to play the Bee Gees. By the end of the 70’s most of my contemporaries found work playing in the only genres still supporting live music venues – rock and roll, where I ended up, or country western. Then, in 1980, along came “Urban Cowboy” and just like a new strain of a familiar virus, the country western clubs that had live bands were decimated by the new “redneck chic” C&W discos. Damn John Travolta! He’s done more damage to musicians trying to make a living than any man in history.

    That was followed in 1981 by the launch of MTV and the birth of the music video. From that point on, popular music became much more about the visual impact of an artist than their musical ability, and that spelled the beginning of the end for what had been the more successful large live rock and roll clubs. By the end of the decade they had closed and have yet to return. Today’s artists, like Lady Gaga, depend on providing a sensory overload of visuals that can’t help but distract from the quality, or lack thereof, of the actual music. It might be there, but who can tell?

    Scrimmage and TXMN, excellent post over the weekend, RE: Lulu. I couldn’t have expressed it any better. I find the character to be an insufferable boring twit who has neither family/friend/foe loyalty when it comes to the man she's bedding. I've always been indifferent to her character, but now I totally loath her.

    TXMN, especially loved your comparison of her and Carly. She has nothing on my girl Carly. If the writers really wanted to involve everyone in this ridiculous Franco s/l and especially Lulu, they could have had her in the hospital so she could comfort her brother Ethan after being shot by Mr. Bauer. But NO, they had to add her to Jason/Dante/Franco mess. Can’t stand a woman who can’t/won’t let their man have any room to breath. She’s proven that she has no life outside of Dante. Still don’t get this coupling.

    Ran, I agree with you “that none if the madness, death, and drama is Sonny related”. Although there are those who will lay the blame on him and for Mr. Bauer going psychotic-gun-toting-off. But to those I say, contrary to what everyone’s been telling her, it all Kristina’s fault, not for being abuse by Keifer, but for not telling/confiding in anyone about what Keifer was doing to her and then lying that Ethan was her abuser. She set this whole thing in motion with her lies. And not to excuse Mr. Bauer, but he’s a grown man who obviously has physiological issues, that he can’t/won’t accept that his son was an abuser, but hey daddy, look no further than the mirror.

    JMJasonLover, Luvleafs and LuvleafsOffspring, welcome!!!

    Off topic:

    NYD, Happy Belated Birthday. I hope you celebrated well.

    Ran, bless your heart for helping out your neighbor and babysitting their dog. I don’t think I could manage having more than one dog with Jylli being a handful all on his own. That was a very nice thing for you to do giving the circumstances.

    Hi Poodles,

    The writers lack subtlety and I thought that the couple might actually be the kidnappers.

    Off Topic,

    Hi Storm,

    Like you I had Lasik surgery and was fortunate to get good results. My lashes are fine but I do have a gap. There are other products for lashes such as Peter Thomas Roth, Dr. Denise and DHC has a product for lashes as well. May not get the same results.

    Hi Scrimmage,

    I agree that Sliders is not on the same level as Doctor Who. My favorite classic episode is Logopolis, Tom Baker's last episode. I attended a convention in my hometown in which the second Doctor, Patrick Troughton was a featured guest. Unfortunately, he died in his sleep before I got a chance to see him.

    I like 70's and 80's music. My favorite group is ABBA. They used videos so they would not have to do many concerts.

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY NEW YORK DRAMA....and many more!

    I still think Mr. Bauer would have gone crazy on Kristina even if Keifer was in jail and not dead. If he's not on his way to Harvard, then he's to be ashamed of. Would have been hard on him to have a son in jail and he would have blamed Krissy for that.

    Poodles, never tried that that product.

    Our little house guest is home with her family. It was way more work then I thought it would be.

    Scrimmage, glad to hear you had such a nice evening.

    Forgot to add: The weird queen kept right on "singing" after the body plopped to the ground so I would guess it was a dummy and he was in on the act.

    4my: You hit the nail on the head in regards to Lulu. She is an insufferable boring twit.

    IMO, being boring is a cardinal sin.

    Scrimmage: ITA with you about the folly of gun “control.”
