Who is Spinelli?

Spinelli fans have often discussed his history, tossing back and forth various theories as to why he is the way he is. Fellow fans Nami, B00kw0rm92 and I spent a good amount of time coming up with what we believe is a strong idea as to why Spinelli became the Jackal and who his family might be. Possibly some spoilers, but mostly it is just deep consideration and contemplation of the Jackal.

I present to you....Spinelli's History, A Theory ( @ my livejournal )

"CMA Music Fest"

CMA Music Fest hosts soap stars

The stars of ABC's "All My Children," "One Life to Live," and "General Hospital" will descend upon Nashville during CMA Music Festival, which is held Thursday through Sunday, June 5-8.
"Our fans really enjoyed meeting and interacting with ABC's daytime stars last year, so we couldn't be happier that they are joining us again," said Tammy Genovese, CMA Chief Executive Officer. "Country Music and daytime television have a lot in common. And at the heart of both industries, is a genuine relationship between the artists and actors and their fans."

Participants are: R"All My Children" - Bobbie Eakes ("Krystal Carey"), and Ricky Paull Goldin ("Jake Martin").
"One Live to Live" -Kassie DePaiva ("Blair Cramer"), and Kamar de los Reyes ("Antonio Vega").
"General Hospital" - Bradford Anderson ("Damian Spinelli"), Rebecca Herbst ("Elizabeth Webber"), and Jason Thompson ("Dr. Patrick Drake").
Eakes was signed to a record deal in Nashville at one point, but never released a CD.

The actors will participate in various activities including hosting concerts

Once again, GH dominates the awards, winning 6 of the 8 prizes, including Best Daytime Drama Series for the 2nd year in a row. 4 of the 6 acting awards went to 1st time nominees (Tyler Christopher, Bradford Anderson, Carolyn Henessy, Brandon Buddy), while the other 2 winners (Laura Wright & Kirsten Storms) were nominees last year. In a shocking upset, OLTL beats out GH for Best Writing. And sadly, once again, AMC is shut out.

Make Good Choices Today (Write a letter!)

Do you have a certain hope or wish for Spinelli's character on GH? Do you want to see him with a particular pairing, etc? Would you like to have your opinion acknowledged but you are skeptical about how much your voice actually counts to TPTB?

Well, you may find this interesting:

Sonya Eddy (Epiphany on GH) was recently interviewed and stressed how important writing fan mail is. She explained that writing an one fan letter can have the weight of a couple thousand fans in the eyes of the people in charge. That is EXTREMELY powerful...the idea that your voice is counted so much even if you are the only one.

Sonya also said that she has seen storylines change because of such mail. Wow.

Imagine for a second if each Spinelli fan took out a good old piece of paper and pen, sat down, and expressed what the character meant to them. In a letter, you could say what you love, what you wish to see more of, who you hope Spinelli was with romantically, what left an impression on you....anything that comes to mind. Yours could be that letter that makes a difference...

This isn't the first we have heard of the importance of fan mail. Insiders have been muttering for a while about how important it is to write. Campaigning is one thing, calling and emailing is important, but there is just something about the idea of a fan taking the time out of their day to use good old fashioned snail mail that impresses those in charge.

Please, take some time to support Spinelli. The last campaign (Hugs for Spinelli) really seemed to have a strong affect on his character. We got more screen time for him, a budding romance, all sorts of interesting and funny scenes...And I think it has a lot to do with how vocal we were during that time.

So...consider this Scribbles for Spinelli or....Sonnets for Spinelli....Letters for Spinelli.

Write your hearts out. Your voice counts, it counts a lot, and it counts for something.
