  1. I should clarify what I said earlier about Kirk Geiger being fired over his height: When Chris McKenna was fired in 1993, Nathan Fillion replaced him a year later, and I guess the show wanted a Kevin who wasn't dwarfed by his younger brother, and Jack Armstrong filled the bill in that regard. Unfortunately, he never caught on--not because he was bad, but I think because he was seen as being just "there", or "meh." That probably looked more appealing after KK's Kevin crashed and burned, though. It is sad that KG being shorter than NF cost him his job, though. Also: KG mentioned how he and Yasmine Bleeth (Lee Ann) didn't work together for very long, so I guess it was Joey Thrower's Kevin that lost his virginity to her and got her pregnant with Duke. I'm not sure if was his Kevin or Matthew Vipond's Kevin who was involved with Carlo Hesser's niece Stephanie Hobart, though--MV's Kevin was there from 1990-1991, while JT's Kevin was there from 1991-1992; Kevin & Stephanie were briefly involved in 1991, so I'm not sure. I DO know, though, that Stephanie was played by Robyn Griggs, who later got fired from Another World after being seen publicly with the infamous John Wayne Bobbitt. One more piece of trivia: The late Jonathan Brandis briefly played Kevin as a kid from 1982-1983.
  2. 1992-1994 (so yes, the Spring Fling/rape trial), and Kevin Stapleton was from 1996-1998 and seduced Cassie away from Andrew during 1996-1997, as @Melgaypet said above. Kirk Geiger was fired in 1994 for being too short (!!!!), so Jack Armstrong was brought in as Kevin from 1994-1995, followed by a horrible duh-faced model/blatantly NOT an actor named Ken Kenitzer for a brief stint in 1995. After about a year, KS was brought on, then JFP fired him in favor of her friend Timothy Gibbs in 1998. He's had a lot of steady work in movies (not the most high profile, but still) and TV over the years, so he may not have necessarily considered it until he got Y&R. I mean, maybe he would have, who knows.
  3. Aw, I love Erin. I don't think she meant that story about her mom as something that she necessarily felt herself, it was just how her mom was trying to protect her (although I do remember her saying that when the show first wanted Cris & Jess to have sex, Erin was VERY uncomfortable and not ready to play that out yet, so it wasn't until Will & Jess slept together a few years later that she played that out--it's definitely a bit weird of her mom--while still protective--but I don't think Erin necessarily feels that way herself; I hope not, anyway). I can't help it. I've always adored her, and there's SO much shit that would have never happened to Jess had Erin not left the show (even past the sexual abuse/DID stuff, the relationship with Antonio would have CERTAINLY never happened with Erin--blech), although I understand why she did, after growing up on the show. I guess I can't really be surprised that Melissa said that Natalie belonged to John, but I certainly don't agree with that! I wish Nat's relationship with Cris had come up, but given that David Fumero is Erin's ex-boyfriend in real life (combined with who his wife is now), I can't see why it didn't, lol.
  4. Two things, BTW: 1. I absolutely ADORE Kathy Mattea. I'm an alto singer like she is, so that alone is enough to endear her to me. I completely agree that this song should be one of many on this list, not the only one, and certainly not this low! 2. Full disclosure: When I was a junior in high school (2005-2006), I used to hear "Living in Fast Forward" on the bus (I was slow to get my driver's license; I got it at 18, shortly after graduating from high school), and while it probably doesn't deserve to be on the list (or at least not this high), I do have fond memories of it for starting to grow the grain of my love for country music, even if it would take MANY more years to grow into a full bloom. It just makes me happy. Yes, really. *hides*
  5. What a crazy few days in country music this has been! Charlie Daniels is gone, the artists formerly known as Lady Antebellum are now suing the Seattle artist who also uses the name "Lady A" (technically the band has had the trademark to use that name for a decade now, but even if they are legally in the right place here, they are still suing a black woman over a name that they started officially using in support of Black Lives Matter; the optics here are AWFUL). But there's a list to go on with, so go on with it I will. Here we go: #530: Rodney Atkins--“If You’re Going Through Hell (Before the Devil Even Knows)” #529: Willie Nelson--“The Party’s Over” #528: Mel McDaniel--“Baby’s Got Her Blue Jeans On” #527: Thomas Rhett--“It Goes Like This” #526: Merle Haggard--“Ramblin’ Fever” #525: Hank Williams, Jr.--“All My Rowdy Friends are Coming Over Tonight” #524: Kenny Chesney--“Living in Fast Forward” #523: Tompall Glaser--“Put Another Log On the Fire (Male Chauvinist National Anthem)” #522: Keith Urban--“Better Life” #521: Kathy Mattea--“Eighteen Wheels and a Dozen Roses” http://www.countryuniverse.net/2020/07/08/a-country-music-conversation-sirius-top-1000-country-songs-of-all-time-530-521/
  6. Imagine my surprise when I discovered that Alan Locher is doing another OLTL reunion TODAY at 2 PM Eastern! As always, you can watch the video on YouTube once the live stream is over. :) It features: Melissa Archer (Natalie)--the one I assume most of you is most excited to see, lol (I'm happy to see her too, but that pales compared to my excitement for Fiona, of course, which I'm sure you can understand.)--Attention @TeeVee329, @Melgaypet, @dubbel zout, and @peachmangosteen (who I see ha already liked this post!) in particular! Kirk Geiger (Kevin) Chris McKenna (Joey) Erin Torpey (Jessica) (I am REALLY excited to see her!) This does make me think that maybe the rumors of tension between MA and ET were overblown, and Erin truly did just leave the show after giving it both the later years of her childhood and all of her teenage years, and she just needed to move on. Also: I realize that MA and ET (mainly MA, probably) are the two you guys are probably the most familiar with, so having an older "Joey" and "Kevin" might make you less likely to be interested, even with MA on board, but I wanted to let you guys now about this anyway. It's a Buchanan kids family reunion in particular, and if nothing else, having ET there links everyone together regarding their earlier and middle years, while MA can take over for the final decade of the show. I can see the logic behind that. Anyway, here's the video:
  7. One thing I've noticed is how many priests John Ingle played over the years! He played the priest who married Rick & Jo on The Facts of Life, he played a priest in the movie The Stepfather III (the ill-fated priest, I should say...yikes). Being cast as Edward Quartermaine must have been a relief just to get away from the typecasting! He did play the principal in the cult classic Heathers, though, so that's SLIGHTLY different, at least. :P
  8. I'll admit, I hesitated a bit about what to post here when I first he heard that he passed. On one hand, there's a LOT of views of his that I didn't agree with (the understatement of the century, coming from me here), but on the other hand, I would be lying through my teeth if I acted like he didn't have a role in making me a fan of southern rock as a young teenage girl in the early-mid 2000's (I was NOT one of the cool kids in high school, needless to say, lol). Because he did, along with the Allman Brothers Band (and it's worth noting here that the views of Gregg Allman--may he RIP himself; he passed away three years ago--in particular were QUITE different from a lot of the ones that CD frequently espoused) and SO many other acts. And he DID record and make music with a wide range of artists, including ones people might not expect, like Bob Dylan. And his ability as a fiddle player was absolutely singular. So...yeah, a lot of mixed feelings from me today. *shrug* One more very interesting factoid about Charlie that I'll leave here: In Ken Burns' docuseries about country music that aired last year, there was footage of CD playing alongside bluegrass legend Earl Scruggs and a handful of other country/bluegrass artists in Washington, DC at a Vietnam War PROTEST--the only group of artists from the genre there that day! Oh how times change, huh?
  9. A long, long time ago, in the early-mid 2000's when I was still a teenager, long before I became a country music fan (yes, despite many of my posts here, believe it or not, there was a time when I didn't yet listen to country music, which I'm sure many people would prefer would still be true today, given how much I can yammer on about it, lol), I fell in love with southern rock. And Charlie Daniels absolutely played a role in that, and I have ALWAYS loved how much of a legend he is in both rock AND country, especially, of course, with his signature song here. RIP.
  10. Also, one of my favorite commercials EVER:
  11. The legendary Charlie Daniels has died of a stroke at the age of 83. https://www.tennessean.com/story/entertainment/music/2020/07/06/charlie-daniels-country-music-dies/5384087002/ There were things about his personality that were...polarizing, to put it politely, but no one could deny his talent on the fiddle. "The Devil Went Down to Georgia" is both a classic rock radio AND a classic country radio staple, and not a lot of people can make a claim to have a song that qualifies for BOTH of those categories! Truly amazing. RIP. :'(
  12. For those of you who don't know (probably all of you but me, let's be real), this month marks the 30th anniversary of Max & Gabrielle's wedding in 1990--and while I'll ALWAYS be bitter that we never got a wedding with JDP's Max & Gabrielle, I'd glad that they did actually make it down the aisle, even if they were only married for less than a year. Their wedding was held at the Bingham Inn, the bed and breakfast Max took her to the previous February after convincing Gabrielle not to go forward with her vows to become a nun. The priest, Father Tony Vallone, is played by John Viscardi, Fiona Hutchison's husband since 1994.
  13. As of today, Olivia de Havilland is officially 104!
  14. Rob Reiner on Twitter (because apparently I can't embed Tweets here anymore): "Last night my dad passed away. As I write this my heart is hurting. He was my guiding light."
  15. Today is Steve Burton's 50th birthday.
