    Lunar eclipse 2019: how to watch this “supermoon” turn blood-red
  2. Add a sinking economy and it's 80's all over again. We're both fortunate that funerals we've attended were civil affairs to attend the grieving family for the loss of those genuinely loved. I have attended a few memorials where the only people that showed up were agents and publicists, creditors, business associates, photographers, insurance investigator, and the caterer … Family maintained a staged, sedate distance. The pretense that JT's abusive behavior was a secret to Reed is nonsense. He lived with his father and Mac as JT's life and career was falling apart, Mac admitting that JT abused her when they were together. With JT's return, Reed was less than enthusiastic and suspicious to see his father, but by approaching Reed through music, JT influenced his opinion. I don't care much about NotBilly's wounded feelz being kept in the dark about JT abusing Victoria, or Victoria telling NotBilly she doesn't believe his false humility or empty promises. Victoria uncharacteristically turning to Cane, of all the rat bastards roaming Genoa City, is inconceivable TV. At the time of the abuse NotBilly was still obsessed with humping Phyllis in elevators because she was The One Right Now. NotBilly has waved away all the damage he's done for the last three years … Except for this last blast of ego compelling him to spread the bad news to a prisoner, making sure Lily's living situation is more miserable … All to take another jealous swipe at Cane and gut Victoria for rejecting NotBilly's self-serving lies.

    Germs Bassist Lorna Doom Dead at 61 Lorna Doom, the bassist of the seminal Los Angeles punk band Germs, has died. The cause of death is currently unknown, but her passing was confirmed by former Germs drummer Don Bolles in a Facebook post earlier today. “She left this mortal coil today around 1,” he wrote in a Facebook comment. She was 61. Born Teresa Ryan, Doom joined Germs in the mid-’70s. The lineup at the time included vocalist Jan Paul Beahm (Darby Crash), guitarist Georg Ruthenberg (Pat Smear), and Belinda Carlisle—who would later become the lead singer of the Go-Go’s—on drums. After a couple of personnel switch-ups, the band recruited drummer Don Bolles and released their lone influential album, (GI) in 1979. Produced by Joan Jett, the album has been heralded as the greatest Punk albums of all time.” The group released only a handful of singles and live recordings during their brief lifespan. Germs’ multiple performances at storied Hollywood venues such as the Masque, the Roxy, and the Whiskey a Go Go were chronicled in oral histories by Brendan Mullen and Marc Spitz. They were prominently featured in Penelope Spheeris’ iconic 1981 punk documentary The Decline of Western Civilization. Germs disbanded in 1980 after Darby Crash died by suicide at the age of 22. In 2005, Lorna Doom, Pat Smear, and Don Bolles were joined onstage by actor Shane West for a Germs reunion show, an idea spawned by West’s performance as Darby Crash in the Germs biopic What We Do Is Secret. The “new” Germs continued performed a handful of concerts with this lineup. Is our daily cup of coffee under threat?

  4. The only thing Mia and Fen can do for together is cancel each other out. Neither of them have anything they can trade up toward. Nothing. Mia's hustling makeup applications -- she has no influence and no power. Fen is a no-talent boy band reject drowning in over-production, willing to do anything to stay on the Darvon gravy train. Mia on Fen would look like a turkey vulture cleaning up carrion, and Fen's appetite doesn't lean toward the turkey vulture … yet. What's this noise Darvon is spouting at Neil about trusting Ana and her influence with the anonymous song writer? Ana stole studio time twice to produce Fen's recording at H/W facilities, and has been lying non-stop. She continues to lie to Darvon and Neil about the origins of the song and her relationship to the writer. Fen is playing along with Ana's because he's benefiting from her lies, and is hungry for stardom. I expect Fen will come up with a plan to use Tessa as Ana's beard to play the part of "The Song Writer" to fake out Darvon and Neil, while Ana continues to lie and steal studio time. There's no good reason Ana has to indulge in subterfuge, steal or lie to her brother. Ana never has to sell her music to H/W outright, no matter how Darvon and Neil prefer to do business. If they want to buy up music contracts to control everything and skim profits off the top, there are plenty of turds floating in the pool.

    Hair pulling? Why would anyone do that? Was the deli manager contacted? No service worker should be touched by a customer for any reason -- As if serving customers weren't a difficult enough job, you have to guard from having your personal privacy invaded? Mean and stupid people <shakes head> Why can't they stay home and prey on themselves? (((Pearlite!))) PearliteLite's worked hard for this doctorate opportunity. Excellent outcome for your young'un'. Thing1 will be in Pasadena. Mr.Stunt is looking for housing for her. I would love to have her stay with us, but back to living with M&P … She's been on her own too long.
  6. What is there to think about? If Lily isn't constantly massaging Cane's brittle ego, telling him all her thoughts are focused on their future, clinging to every mumbled syllable, praying for their next meeting, telling everyone to go hang while Lily is late for her appointment to hug out the last few seconds with her fragile husband. Cane is only concerned with how Lily's prison sentence affects him. He's making all these plans to go to Paris when she get's out; what an idiot. Lily will be on probation, probably living in a halfway house, have to get a job under strict guidelines through her probation officer, go to group therapy, start school -- There will be no la-di-da touchstone vacations to Paris, France. Lily probably won't be allowed to leave Wisconsin to visit Paris, Texas, much less leave the country. If you are implying that a mission of dubious value was completed, or that a major error was made … Then yes … Mistakes, Cane Has Made Several Hundred, and takes no responsibility for them. No matter the precautions taken, bleaching and cleaning methods employed, how deep the toenail bed is excavated, Cane is the recurrent toenail fungus outbreak of Y&R.

    2018 NCAA gymnastics champion UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi talks about why she decided to quit the elite gymnastics circuit in order to go to college. Thing1 was accepted into the Caltech Physics and Mathematics Division Grad studies -- Yay! More than ever, our clothes are made of plastic. Just washing them can pollute the oceans.
  9. Why didn't you say that from the beginning, miamama?
  10. Are you talking about the red/white furnished apartment Jack gave her? Victor's 1993ish condo was a huge windowed corner affair; the MS apartment was a third the size without the center open staircase and windows. I also find it hard to believe Victor would sell anything to Jack that didn't cause humiliation and grief. Again, the Restless Style studio has no center staircase, few if any windows, exposed commercial brickwork and a vintage warehouse elevator component stage right.

    Carol Channing died at 12:31am on Tuesday, January 15th, 2019, at home in Rancho Mirage, CA of natural causes. B Harlan Boll, MsChanning's publicist, released the following statement: It is with extreme heartache, that I have to announce the passing of an original Industry Pioneer, Legend and Icon - Miss Carol Channing. I admired her before I met her, and have loved her since the day she stepped ... or fell rather ... into my life. It is so very hard to see the final curtain lower on a woman who has been a daily part of my life for more than a third of it. We supported each other, cried with each other, argued with each other, but always ended up laughing with each other. Saying good-bye is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do, but I know that when I feel those uncontrollable urges to laugh at everything and/or nothing at all, it will be because she is with me, tickling my funny bone. Carol was born Jan 31, 1921 in Seattle, Washington, the daughter of a prominent newspaper editor, who was very active in the Christian Science movement. At just two weeks of age, her father's work took the family to San Francisco, where Carol was raised, schooled and eventually found work as a model. Through determination, hard work, and her family's support (not to mention a mandatory IQ test for which she scored one of the highest recorded results), Carol was able to attend Bennington College in Vermont that had one of the few existing arts programs in the country, majoring in drama and dance. A recipient of the 1995 Lifetime Achievement Tony Award, Ms. Channing has been a star of international acclaim since a Time magazine cover story hailed her performance as Lorelei Lee in "Gentleman Prefer Blondes" writing; "Perhaps once in a decade a nova explodes above the Great White Way with enough brilliance to re-illumine the whole gaudy legend of show business." Since her 1948 Broadway debut in Blitzstein's "No For An Answer," her Broadway appearances have included "So Proudly We Hail," "Let's Face It," "Lend An Ear," "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes," "Show Girl," "Pygmalion," "The Millionairess," "The Vamp," "Four On A Garden," and "Wonderful Town." In addition to receiving a special Tony Award in 1968, she won the Tony Award in 1964 for her legendary portrayal of Dolly Levi in Jerry Herman's "Hello, Dolly!" She had since played the role in over 5000 performances, without missing a single performance. She then toured with her own revue, "Carol Channing and Her Ten Stout Hearted Men" and critically acclaimed tours of "Jerry's Girls" and "Legends," in which she co-starred with Mary Martin. Ms. Channing's happiest film project was in the role of Muzzy in "Thoroughly Modern Millie," which earned her an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe Award. Other films include "Paid In Full," "The First Traveling Saleslady" (giving new comer Clint Eastwoodhis first on screen kiss), "Skidoo," "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band," "Archie and Mehitabel" and "Thumbelina." Ms. Channing TV specials, include "Broadway at the Hollywood Bowl," "Carol Channing's Los Angeles," "Carol Channing and Pearl Bailey on Broadway," "George Burns - His Wit and Wisdom" and to millions of children worldwide is best known as the White Queen in "Alice Through the Looking Glass." Other television credits include popular game shows as "What's My Line," "I've Got a Secret," "Password," and "Hollywood Squares," variety shows such as "The Dean Martin Show," "The Red Skelton Show," "The Milton Berle Show," "Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In," "The Carol Burnett Show," "The Muppet Show," as well as many Tony and Grammy broadcasts. A partial list of Carol's Episodic work consist of Playhouse 90's "Three Men on a Horse," "The Love Boat," "Magnum, P.I.," "The Nanny," "Touched by an Angel," "The Drew Carey Show" and "Family Guy." As one of the most easily recognized and highly imitated voices in the world, Carol's unique sound has been established as characters and narrative in both TV series and documentaries like "JFK: The Day the Nation Cried," "The Adam's Family" (voice of Granny), "Thumbelina," "Free To Be You and Me," "Space Ghost," "Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers" and "The Brave Little Toaster Goes To Mars." Miss Channing also cut twenty children's albums of classic stories including "Winnie The Pooh" and "Madeline." Ms. Channing has recorded ten gold Albums and including the original cast album of "Hello, Dolly!" released in 1964. Miss Channing has appeared in most every grand ballroom and concert hall in the country. Among her other acknowledgments is a Best Nightclub Act of the Year Award, Harvard University's Hasty Pudding Woman of the Year Award, the Oscar Hammerstein Award for lifetime achievement and the Julie Harris Lifetime Achievement Award from The Actors' Fund of America, but is most proud in the role of mother of Chan Lowe, who is a nationally syndicated editorial cartoonist, who has the distinction of being a Pulitzer Prize finalist. In 1998, Carol moved to Palm Springs/Rancho Mirage to be close to her dear cousin Richard "Dicky" Long and loved the community so much, that she called it home for the remainder of her life. In 2003, the octogenarian released her best selling memoirs, "Just Lucky I Guess" and started touring world wide with her one woman show entitled "The First Eighty Years are the Hardest," after the very successful preview given to New York audiences that prompted the New York Times to say "Back Where She Belongs: Carol Channing Reminisces . . . The audience jumped to its feet more than once. We were watching a master performer" and Associated Press declared "The audience clearly was there to worship, and Channing did not disappoint." In 2004, Broadway's "first lady of musical comedy," received an honorary doctoral degree becoming Doctor Carol Channing from the California State University, Stanislaus Commencement (only the third Honorary Doctoral Degree given in CSU Stanislaus 45-year history). In 2009, items representing Miss Channing's career were inducted into the Smithsonian Institute in D.C., along with eight other legendary ladies of stage and screen. Her original diamonds dress from the Broadway production of "Lorelei," worn while singing "Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend" and her "Hello Dolly!" gown (from the 95' tour), as well as her TONY Award for her portrayal of Dolly Gallagher Levy, are currently part of the permanent collection at the Smithsonian Institutions American History Museum. In addition, her 1995 Lifetime Achievement Tony Award can be seen on exhibit at The Hollywood Museum and her star on The Hollywood Walk of Fame is located in front of the Pantages Theater on Hollywood Blvd. In 2010, Carol returned to the Great White Way, performing at the New Amsterdam theatre on 42nd Street, with many returning "Dolly boys" from previous "Hello Dolly!" tours and received the "Gypsy Award" from Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS." In January 2012, mutli-TONY winning director and producer, Dori Berinstein, released the critically acclaimed and award winning documentary entitled "Carol Channing: Larger Than Life," highlighting Carol's 70 plus year career. Her last public appearance was on her 95th birthday at the McCallum Theater to a record breaking crowd of fans from all around the world, that sold out in only a couple hours and featured an all star extravaganza to honor her. In late 2018, artist Khoi Nguyen, used his PHD in mathematics to create a prolific painting of the actress, comedienne and activist, that allowed more than 43,000 friends and fans (as well as herself) to participate by affixing their fingerprint onto the work, each linked to a personal video interview about Miss Channing and her efforts to raise awareness with regard to the need for arts in education. Carol is survived by her son, Channing Lowe and close family member, Sylvia Long. Services have not yet been determined. In lieu of flowers, a tribute gift/donation to the Carol Channing Theater at Lowell High School -- San Francisco, California 94132 or the McCallum Theatre -- Palm Desert, CA in Ms Channing's honor would be very much appreciated.

  15. The 1993ish condo I'm talking about was open design where the staircase was in the center. The entrance was stage right of the staircase, and the living area (with a piano) stage left. There were dark stained wood banisters and risers, brass light fixtures, hyper-masculine living room furnishings. Not knowing how many floors Newman Tower contains (20-25 floors ?), I believe the condo was below Victor's offices, somewhere in the upper to middle floors and had an expansive view of GC. Adam's condo staircase would have had to have been completely reconfigured to stage right adding a new hallway, wall, closet, double entry doors and secret passageway for easy escapes. The stickler for some people are pianos that presumably follow Nicki around from location to location. A piano spend years in Adam/Chelsea condo and neither of them ever opened the lid. Victor had pianos in all of his homes, though he doesn't play -- He hired people to play for romantic interludes, but without Nicki the piano was a superfluous decorating choice or a prop for some Newman music-related shenanigans. The fire that burned down the Ranch was in 2012. The condo I'm speaking of was in use in the early 1990s.
