I bet this is ok because of the giant "SOAPNET" logo!!
Oh, some interesting sheeze went down today on Twitter! Seems Steve Burton got miffed that a fan at his JaSam event taped the thing and put it up on You Tube. He threatened to never "do another event together again" because he had asked people not to and they did it anyway. Both the tweet and the you tube have been removed, btw-- so no harm, no foul. How do YOU feel about all this?? Many of us have been to Fan Events where the actors have been frank about things and asked people not to spill. Personally, that's taking a huge risk --but they've done it for years. The whole social media thing is interesting. What if someone were to tweet the entire event in real time? Is that ok? Is posting fan pics all over the net ok? Why does Burton encourage people to tape/you tube his Port Chuck Band but not his events? I want to say it's purely because he might say something controversial but I also think it's because money is involved. When he wanted to sell t-shirts, he and Derk had a nice "behind the scenes peek" at the GH set-- under the guise of "set tour" (on You Tube no less) -- I don't know, it just doesn't sit right with me. Yes, we all should be respectful of actor's requests at events but hell, if whole "Pink" concerts end up on the net, how are you going to stop soap events from being posted? I guess it would be nasty to see something up if you expressly said not to tape. That I can understand. I think the fact that the You Tube is gone, speaks to the fact that the fan probably meant no harm by it. I guess this will have everyone second guessing how events are run. Then again, you can go on and see a LOT of videos of SSW in Orlando so go figure.
An alert: Vanessa Marcil is NOT on Facebook OR Twitter-- just an FYI
Heh...too funny on OLTL David Vickers banging on the window to scare Kelly. He and Dorian using Facebook-type pages.
GENERAL HOSPITAL: Loved the Frank's Neon Weiner sign behind Kalup...LMAO
Olivia/Steven Chem test?? Geesh, can you BE any more obvious..?!
Too much time at the hospital today...momentum over Franco gone. They needed to so a LOT more in the aftermath of that whole thing, imo. It should have been chaos..way more up/down after Franco fell. A FRENZY!! LOL. Wow...really boring Monday after a pretty good weekend. Jason pointing a gun at Dante was so contrived. Just sayin'. Plus, since Kalup didn't scream or stop his 'poetry' when Franco fell, wouldn't someone have smelled a rat??
We got Ethan/Maya sippy cup-- Dante/Max feet rub...Clair/Sonny stuff... and snoozing hospital talk going on. I'm glad they showed Alexis finally. I do love the Sexis interactions.
QUOTE of the DAY: "Ladies that accept Sonny's gifts either lose their jobs, go insane or get pregnant or go all three"... Diane to Claire. HEH NICE one. Then she tells her to USE BIRTH CONTROL!! LMAO! Oh, thank GOD for Carolyn Hennesy and her deliveries.
Lucky didn't seem to even KNOW there was a giant shooting at the hospital or that Mac got operated on. Which is why I hate block taping. Put characters into little rooms, have them do all their taping together and why bother to have anyone interact?? If I EVER run a soap Block-taping will be BANNED! (Except for my super-secret closed set spoilers)
Stupid ending today: "What happened to Michael"...just SAY IT. SAY IT...good lord. There were also about 10 cuts today of Jason pointing that gun at Dante. Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.
Have a good one!!
