Here Comes The Rain Again

I thought of taking up a collection, maybe raffle off something, kind of like in the same vane as Lucy Ricardo did when she and Ethel wanted to join Ricky and Fred in Europe, and send Ariel and me somewhere where it’s not raining, but then I realized, duh! It’ll end up raining there anyway. So, we could plan to go where they haven’t had rain in a while and do a good service, but heck, I want some sun! So, put your wallets away, folks.

You’ve heard about Indiana man, Bryon Womack, the sword-yielding, half-naked, Interstate Highway Samurai who is ‘cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs’? Well, there you have it. Okay, well, he was spotted marching down Interstate 65, dressed only in plaid knee-length shorts and slip-on shoes, rhythmically swaying a 35-inch samurai sword to his drum major-like marching cadence.

When approached by state troopers Rick Hudson and Ricky Rayner, he swung the sword defensively but dropped it upon Trooper Hudson’s command. He then attempted to flee the scene in a temporarily unoccupied police cruiser belonging to an office who had stopped at the scene to add assistance, but he was quickly stopped. It was at the jailhouse were Womack declared his affinity for Cocoa Puffs, charged for attempted carjacking, resisting arrest and possession of marijuana.

It’s been a long while since I’ve mentioned anything about the fight to save the soaps and as you may remember, One Life to Live and All My Children were leased by ABC/Disney to Prospect Park who plan on airing the shows in an online version. And now it’s quite possible the two soaps may also be aired on the USA cable network, but nothing has been confirmed about that yet. Well, yesterday, two breaking news items came through; one being that Diva Susan Lucci ixnayed the company’s offer, which was said to have been near to what she is currently earning. In this breaking news item, it is said she wanted more money, for less hours and a guaranteed primetime series. I’m not a fan of All My Children nor of La Lucci, but I cannot believe she would jeopardize the future of her show like this, especially since the mobilization of fans across the country since the cancellation announcement was made this past April, that she would feel such little regard, much like the powers that be at ABC, for her fans.  And if that’s the case, and shame on her if it is, then  All My Children will have to be put on hold  until they can figure what to do and we’ll have to see what comes of this.

On the other hand, Erika Slezak (Victoria Lord) has signed on to continue with Prospect Park. Thank you, Ms Slezak!

    Hi Brian, just wanted to let you know that we dont believe what was written about SL nixing the PP offer. She was at Friars Club the day after that story broke and had this to say to the one person who thought to ask her about it..she said “Do not listen to the media!”
    that gives us reason to believe it was put out by a mouse in rats clothing. (was actually put out by a Disney employee who we have been hounding) So I would say until SL or PP release this info, dont believe it!! While I am an avid AMC fan, SL doesnt make the show. She may be the only remaining original cast member, there are others who have been there almost as long so if she dont sign there is no need to axe the show. Personally I think they are working on something reaaly big for her which is taking longer than expected.
    On the OLTL signing of the 4 they have, and why they were signed first. I believe that they had to get big names signed before their investors would invest in the new studios they needed for this show,
    therefore that is why we are hearing they are signed before AMC.
    You know me and my group we will not give up til we hear AMC and its cast of the people we love are going on as well. I appreciate all the help we can get….so keep them coming 🙂
