End of the Year Wrap Up!

Kittens, it's been one hell of a Spinellified year on General Hospital:

The Good: The Non-Wedding & Jackal PI
General Hospital knew that when it comes to Spinelli and Maxie, nothing can happen by the book. So, of course the most romantic expressions of love and devotion had to happen when they decided to CALL OFF their wedding. Also, it was such a total BONUS for Spinelli to finally break out of Jason's shadow just enough to start up a PI firm with Miss Sam. Team SPAM for the win!
The Bad: Jail Bird & Betrayal
The Jackal had a lot of tough luck in the beginning of the year...Especially when the Feds came a knockin' regarding his less than legal hacking skills after being duped by the (thankfully GONE) Spinelli clone Winnifred. Then, Spinelli's heart was broken repeatedly twice due to Maxie, first after she slept with him to keep him away from Winnie-the-Fed, and secondly when she couldn't figure out her feelings regarding Johnny. Needless to say, this stories brought some extremely great glimpses at the powerhouse Bradford Anderson can be. The man should not just be restricted to comedy.
The Karaoke: Life was a musical for Spinelli this summer. First he worried about impressing Maxie with a serenade, unable to carry a tune in a bucket. Miraculously, though, she inspired him to really belt it out to "I Wanna Know What Love Is" in one of the most heartwarming scenes in General Hospital History. Then, there was the Karoke at the non-reception where the rest of GH sang to Maxie and Spinelli. After everyone left, Spinelli got a chance to sing sweetly to his Non-Mrs in a moment that channeled the Frisco/Felicia wedding of Maxie's parents.
Definitely his most diverse year to date. We can only hope for more to come in the new year.

Short & Sweet interview from Canadian TVGuides Suds Report

“I love my job so much that I love the idea of being on it during the ‘80s and knowing that there were 30 years more of it at least. I can see myself being on GH for a lifetime, and that’s not to say we won’t be around for another 30 years … ”
--Bradford Anderson Suds Report Sept 25 2009

There is more but i wanted to keep out the slightly spoilerly parts about the wedding. But the rest is REALLY worth a read

Manchester Animal Shelter

They have added to their website the story of the blue spikey ribbons and the donation craziness that followed.

I am planning a visit to the shetler soon (maybe next week) I hope to share with everyone all the special does the MAS does for animals of NH's largest city and saving animals from over crowed shelters from different parts of the country.

If you have any requests or questions you want me to ask let me know :)

just when I think I can't be moved to tears anymore..

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Wedding Promo...

The Wub Queen shares the love on her blog

in awe of the love ...

Let me tell you a little story. I will keep it brief. Or rather try.

One day in February 2007 I started this blog. As simply a place to post the amazing fan videos and to post updates on Bradford. I was in awe of his acting and really got me right before the metro court crisis.. A few days after it started.. JUST a few days. I got an email from a fellow fan. She like I was concerned that Bradford was still recurring and didn't have a contract yet. We would email back and forth and slowly we became more then just fellow fans we be friends.

I adore the woman most of you know as Spikey. She is smart, fiery, caring, honest and simply amazing. A few months ago I found out she had cancer. I was blessed like many of you that she decided to share some of her experiences on twitter.

Then right after she left to go the hospital i was like what can I do for someone that guards her privacy like the secret service protects the president. I recalled seeing the twibbons and thought that it would be nice for her to come out of the hospital an see some ribbons and know that we were (and are) pulling for her.

Now I have lost count the amount of money that been given and pledged to an animal shelter in Manchester NH in honor of this special girl.

Not only that this collective love in has shown me that our little twitter world is a tight little bunch .. thank you.

In awe of the blue ribbon, and my hospital stay.

I am up, trying to eat a banana and drink some water. Eating small bits many times a day, and right now, I retch and feel gross. I am told not to expect to feel like myself for a while... baby steps..

So, this was my week.. Hope this might be some help to people who are going through similar things..

I drank the seawater, as you all know--you guys agonized through that with me. You feel pretty weak, since you have nothing but clear liquids. I was scheduled to be at the hospital at 11:00.

My family was all there and the hospital was packed. This is a cancer hospital, and it's overwhelming how many people daily are there. It's our number one killer, and it's obvious.

Anyway, they finally called me back (I was ready to get it over with and starved to death). Doctor went over what they were doing to me, and she told me that she was so proud that I chose life over vanity. She would get all this cancer. Anesthesiologist told me that he was going to give me an epidural. I knew that was a stick to the back, (from having my daughter) but he said the drug he'd give me before hand would make me not care if I was stuck or not. That was the last thing I remember.

My family are big Tennessee Vols fans, (season ticket holders for many years) and so they did a Vols walk cheer when I went into surgery. I remember none of this, but I am told I had a big smile on my face and met my older brother's eye and looked at him like "Why do you look like this?" He had his lip stuck out. They are a religious bunch and they pray alot and have alot of faith, but they were definitely worried.

I dont' remember anything after that except feeling like hell and seeing my family standing in ICU with me and smiling and telling me I made it through. I agreed and went back to sleep.

When I woke up and finally got a chance to examine myself, I had an epidural in my back (A nurse told me that they were pumping terminal patient type drugs in there) a huge scar down my abdomen with staples. My butt has been sewed up, and IV also in my right side (they didn't use my chemo port a cath at all) I had two drainage bulbs sticking out of my abdomen, and a large bag attached to what they call my stoma. (which is the Illeostomy) You guys can see why I'm a bit sore right now, and can't be my Spin fandom loving self.

I got out of ICU the second day, and they took me off some of the nutrition being pumped into my body, and wanted me to eat by myself. That was hard and I felt sick. On Saturday Morning, I felt like myself for about three hours. I was still on the epidural, and I was hungry. I got up and walked, took a sponge bath and my doctor came in. I was doing so good, she took me off the drugs, and I was to feed myself. UGH, back to feeling sick again and I really havent' felt myself since, although I had good days and bad.

My husband has been a rock. He slept on the couch from hell beside me for a week, and he learned how to attach the bag to the stoma in one sitting. The Stoma nurse was in awe that he wanted to do it himself and did it with very little instruction. We had a very eventful week, this past week. Giving my daughter away at the wedding, (and she's not HIS daughter, but they are father/daughter to each other) and then this. Things happen for a reason, I truly believe that and I was completely moved by this man who I've been married to for so many years. You take things for granted and I vow I won't do that again.

My mother's brother had three heart attacks while I was going through this. People who know her feel she is a "Melanie" almost too good person. She thinks of everyone but herself and it broke my heart to see her going through so much pain over me and then her brother. I love my family so much. My younger brother (who is nuts) and sister visited me one day when my husband was off doing some needed business to get us through, and they made me laugh which HURT. Did I say I love my family?

One thing that made me feel wonderful was the incredible outpouring while I was away. I was honestly moved to tears when I heard from my daughter through Penny what you guys were doing. I couldn't believe it. I still get teary when I see all this. THANK YOU GUYS so much. I showed my husband all this and he thought it was incredible and moving too. My daughter read Lindsay's piece on BAFB and told me it made her cry, along with all the blue ribbons up there.. ETA because it must be mentioned, SPECIAL THANK YOU for Nami and @gwaddie on Twitter.. I didn't get to read that till after I wrote that. Wow.

Anyway, I'm home and hopfully back to normal soon.

Really loved that Johnny, Spinelli and Claudia scene yesterday. Also, Jaspin were great. Good job Michele Val Jean!

Great job Bradford fans. I love you guys. HUGS AND KISSES.

What is a fan community?

...A place for fans to go and share their love for a certain something...

Over time, or perhaps even instantaneously, you can form a bond with a stranger all due to your shared interests. It's a strange phenomenon, especially via the internet, where people can hide behind anonymity. We get ourselves a screen name, put up an avatar, and let the fun begin.

Sometimes, though, you get the opportunity to form a stronger bond with a fellow fan. I have been so wonderfully blessed to have Spikey in my life. She's fought tooth and nail for respect for Bradford and Spinelli, worked her ass off collecting information on a daily basis for the greater community, and always been a true fan to her bone. She's not in it for the hot factor, she's not in it for the trend, she's not in it for the clique. Spikey appreciates a good character and a talented actor and has given up a lot of her time so that other fans could join in and share her love.

She and I have fought like cats and dogs a few times...(I think I got the LJ shut down for like...10 minutes a while back...You know I've got that *bitch* streak in me) and we don't always agree on storyline or what's best for GH...but this woman has also defended me against those that harassed me. She's listened to me talk about the troubles in in my life, chatted with me through the two most boring and somewhat lonely years of my college career, even encouraged me in many different directions.

On a bigger scale, what has she NOT done for Spinelli fans? She created the Spinelli LiveJournal. That's pretty much home base for most of us. She has every single article/pic/clip of Bradford Anderson known to man...She's the Vault De Bradford. HOW many times has she wandered into the hell of DD just to find us some spoilers? She's such a badass, even Mr. Anderson himself reveres her (Think Emmys submission advice).

And that's why it simply warms my heart that when *OUR GIRL* needs our support for one of the toughest battles she's ever going to face, you people are THERE. For those of you sporting the Support Spikey ribbon on Twitter, I salute you. Even Bradford is wearing it now. We're over 100 supporters now! THAT is impressive.

SO...What is a fan community?

THIS is a fan community.

..and growing!

Show Support for Spikey..

As many of you know Spikey is fighting colon cancer. She has been through radiation and chemo and is not having her colon removed TODAY. She is going to kick cancer's but. We need to show our support.

Lets show our support to someone that gives us so much. She has given so much to this community spoilers, the whole Spinelli Lj, pictures, information. She is the queen at finding stuff. Instead of being a horder she Shares. Not only that she has a big heart and adores Bradford Anderson just like we do. (follow her on twitter @spinlj )

this application will add the ribbon to your twitter picture.. also I included the images for those that want more control. (and may be more picture talented then me LOL) Also You can post well wishes for Spikey here and the LJ and I will make sure she gets them some how.

I will be posting updates on Spikey from her daughter on the LJ.

We Love Soaps Interviews Bradford on Red Carpet

This is a great interview of Bradford thank you to those at For posting this video. The Red Carpet show never interviewed Bradford.

Tuesday, September 1, 2009

Emmy Round-Up

First I found out via twitter that Bradford didn't win the Emmy THIS year in the restroom at my work after just finishing my break. So I couldn't wait. LOL
Amy from the Scrubs Hub got bleacher seats at the red carpet. She posted on twitter lots of the video and pictures she was able to get. It was great because I felt like I was there at times. You can find a lot of her posts on the Scrubs Hub twitter

She snapped this great picture of Bradford being Bradford (you can see him down the rail.)

Lastly she got this video of him on the carpet.

Bradford presented an award with Kirsten Storms and Bindi.. Yes Bindi the Jungle Girl. Any moms of young kids have that song stuck in their heads now. "Bindi... Bindi the Jungle Girl...BINDI" I love Bindi. ok ok back to the presenting. LOL I had been waiting for someone to post clip and here it is.. So cute..

Oh one more thing. Spikey posted this cute little screen cap at the spinlj and its just too sweet.

Bradford and the Emmy's

SAD DAY that Bradford didn't win the Emmy last night. Even with my displeasure with the writing staff at GH and their treatment of the Spinelli character and the Spixie relationship, Bradford SO deserved to win the Emmy. He looked adorable with this cute fiance in the audience, and I loved he, Kirsten and Bindi Irwin's presentation on stage with Bradford carrying out a box for Bindi to stand on. :)

I was also sorry that Kirsten didn't win an Emmy, but I know that she was thrilled for Julie Berman. She looked so shocked!! Maybe the fact that this was the ONLY win for GH last night will give a wake up call to TPTB that some serious house cleaning needs to go on over at GH - and by that, I mean BEHIND the scenes, not continuing to kill off beloved characters!

Becky Herbst and Tyler Christopher looked dashing during the fashion show segment, even if I'm not thrilled about the Niz pairing. They are spectacular to look at, regardless of their character arc!

On a non-Bradford/GH note, I just loved Betty White's speech about The Guiding Light. I love me some Betty White!! She is such a hoot and a half and a real class act.

This was actually a fairly good Emmy presentation, but I admit to fast forwarding through a lot of it thanks to a lack of GH nominations. Let's hope Bradford is given some great material to work with before next years noms!

Sunday, August 30, 2009

Good Luck BRADFORD!!!!!!

I'll be watching tonight and rooting you on!!

We may be grumbly viewers and not care for some stories, but I can say without a doubt that those of us at the "Bradford Anderson fan Blog" all love you and appreciate your great talent!!

its the Emmy's baby

Tomorrow is the Daytime Emmy Awards that almost didn't happen. I am so excited. I am so excited that Bradford has been nominated. I hope some of you are having viewing parties and dressing up pretty. I will saddly be working till 9:30. :(

So I need your help for a very important question. Should I spoil my self with the results before hand or wait to find out till I can watch it?

Watch the Daytime Emmys LIVE on The CW Network on Sunday, August 30 at 8:00PM ET. Pre-Show at 7:00PM ET


YES I told Rene' to post her feelings. I consider everyone feelings valid. Always have or I would not have so many contributors. Did I make an error in telling Rene' to post? Do her's and other fan's options not matter? I don't think so at all. I was reading the messages over at the spinelli live journal and i am sorry so many are upset over what she said.

I have not watched GH in two weeks. I don't even have a reason for not doing this. Spinelli is just going to be saying the same thing over and over again so I am sure i didn't miss anything. I have not seen the episode that has people so upset. I been very busy being a wife and mother (my baby is in kindergarten and we went to the beach before school started) I question that part of me is like Rene' and doesn't have the heart to see her Spinelli act this way.

Rene' didn't say to start a campaign to hate on Spinelli. She said that right now she doesn't have the the heart the watch a character she loves act this way. It brings me back to May of 2007. The crazy baby stalking Spinelli. When he becomes nothing more then a story prop. I don't agree with her words of "Spinelli Boycott" but those are are her feelings. I know not everyone is happy about the current storyline. I asked the question about dumbing down Spinelli in that recent interview because i knew it was a fan concern.

I am very much a positive person. I want Spinelli and Maxie to get married. I want Maxie knocked up. Give me butterflies and roses darn it. LOL I know nether of these are some fan favorites for directions but we are all different.

Then again I am not watching the past two weeks am I? Whats that say? People are down about the current storyline. What is it about that? Perhaps it seems in a few weeks Spinelli has been stripped of a lot of his growth the past two weeks. I would like to think he has grown. So expect the real Spinelli will be back soon. His storyline has kinda gone in circles the past few months and Maxie was a complete skank whore in the limo so hey all characters do hair brained things that not even their fans can understand.

Spinelli Boycott

Well, I debated on whether or not to post this blog. I sent a private message to Penny, expressing my thoughts, and in true Penny fashion, she said if I felt strongly, I should post. As she pointed out, I should be prepared for backlash, though she thought I wasn’t the only one upset at recent events. I know not everyone will agree with me, but it's my opinion, so I'm putting it into the universe. So here it goes.

I am boycotting Spinelli. By that, I mean I refuse to watch any scenes with the character of Spinelli until such time as the writers have decided to go back to the essence of what the character was intended to be instead of the mentally challenged buffoon he has become. My fast forward button will be in effect.

I fell in love with the character of Damien Spinelli because the cyberspeak, spastic gyrations and utter geekdom were nothing more than a cover for a MAN (yes MAN!) who was awkward, shy and unsure of his place in the world. Spinelli showed time and time again in his interactions with Lulu, Jason and a host of other Port Chuckles denizens that he was deeper than what appeared on the surface. He made me long to find out more about what lurked under the surface of his multicolored hoody.

Now, however, the writers have completely stripped away the depth of character that was Damien Spinelli and left him with nothing more than a shell of the former “man.” Now he’s not much more than a kindergartener, struggling to learn how to tie his shoes. How could someone who confessed such depth and pain to Jason a mere second in time ago now be so immature as to believe he and Maximista would live in the “regrettably pink room,” after their wedding? Of course, Maximista could decorate it to her taste! How could someone who was once more concerned about his friends than himself suddenly decide his worry over his proposal of marriage to Maxie, and an upcoming KARAOKE session?? - were more important than helping his friends find two runaway teenagers who may be in serious danger?

It seems like Maxie’s feelings for Spinelli are more about pity these days than love. I feel repulsed by their interactions rather than the spark of heat they once shared. There’s no other word for it – it’s ridiculous.

Even Spinelli’s proposal of marriage, rooftop supper and request for Maxie’s hand from Mac were more reminiscent of a mentally-challenged man than someone who knew deep down how much in love he was but perhaps was too awkward to carry out the task in the way he wished. Why couldn’t we see Spinelli share his true feelings in a deep and meaningful fashion instead of the way a sixth grader would propose to his playground girlfriend?

In the beginning, TPTB would always allow a glimmer of the intelligent and thoughtful man Spinelli was deep down to show through, even if it was only for a moment. Now, he’s a caricature. The comic relief. Not to be taken seriously.

Bradford Anderson is one of the most extraordinary talents I’ve seen grace the small or big screen. He has a range that exceeds many of today’s A-list celebrities, and yet, GH refuses to allow him to extend himself to the fullness of his capabilities. If I were Bradford, I would be mortified and LIVID at their lack of development for the character of Damian Spinelli.

I will be visiting the set of GH in a few weeks, and I may have the opportunity to see Bradford, having met him a time or two before. I’ve wondered what he may think of my boycott, but, after much thought, I’m wondering if he wouldn’t like to boycott the character himself at this point. Bradford is incredible. The writers of GH and their destruction of one of my favorite characters? Not so much. Let the flames begin.

*Jazz Hands*

Hey babes. I haven't blogged in a while. Lots of stuff going on for me. Moved to a new town, got a new apartment, transferred to a new college, got a haircut or two. You know, that whole "life" thing. I haven't really got to watch as much GH as I did before, but I tune in on occasion and generally like what I see. It is hardly perfect, but I think the writing is improving and I get the impression the show is desperately trying to get a solid grip on the multiple factors they have to consider. It is definitely ten times better than it was in early spring, which to this lifetime-fan felt like the lowest point the show has ever been. Mayve GH is trying to get a lot of complicated ducks in a row and I know that requires a patient audience.

I have mixed, but mostly good feelings about fall sweeps, and I'm enjoying Spinelli's continued importance both in dramatic and comedic aspects of the show. The Karaoke storyline totally blew me away and I have to give major props to Bradford and Kirsten for pulling that off beautifully.

Anyways, I'll try to blog more often. Ta Da!

I am always on Twitter, and you can follow me @Lindsay_007

Help my nephew help children with cancer.

My sweet soon to be 9 year old nephew is having a charity concert instead of having a birthday party. I am so very proud of him. PLEASE think about supporting him. A donation for any amount will be a great help. It would mean so much to me.

More info can be had here. including how to make an online donation.

(I promise not to spam the board I may post one or two more times about this I am just so proud of him and want to support him)

Maybe it's me...

Maybe it is just me, but Spixie is everything I could hope for in a romantic story.  

Damian Spinelli has captured my heart through his gentle soul and different way of looking at the world.  A person like Damian Spinelli could easily become bitter and jaded but he seems to remain above the darkness with his ability to see the good in people.  And despite his (up until now) constant rejections, he has also remained a hopeful romantic.

Maxie has forever been a creature of loss.  She has lost so much that she had built walls that could not be broken, could not be gotten around.  Until Spinelli came along. With the simplicity of true love and belief in the goodness that resided in the deepest recesses of her heart, he breached those walls and found his way inside.

Spixie is a classic love story and yet, is so refreshingly different.

I cannot tell you how much I am enjoying this story right now, and hope that we get everything we deserve as viewers - young love and romance and true respect for a love partner.  Maybe it is because I am a hopeful romantic myself.  Maybe it is because of the actors - two phenomenal talents that jump off the screen.  Maybe it is because I still hold out hope for this kind of love in my own life.  Spixie is, in my opinion in the same category as some of the super couples in soap history.

Bradford is on Twitter...

Bradford is on twitter.. Per his myspace its @bfordanderson

If you followed me on twitter you would already know..

From a Sewer to the Rooftop

Its rare but sometimes a real love story comes along. An epic story filled with heart and beauty. A bond formed when they both were in the a lowest point of their lives that carried them to this highpoint. There has been so much that has happend in the past year and a half, through it all they have both grown and achieved so much that they simply would not without the other.They complete each other...

I could be tired but I am seeing symbolism everywhere to Spinelli soiling her designer shoes in a sewer to giving her a ring on a rooftop.

Maxie had lost her sister and lover by tragic death while at a career standstill till finding real true love and getting the job of her dreams. Spinelli dreaming of becoming a PI to really BEING a PI and him fnally able to completely give his heart away to someone else.

From the Sewer to the Rooftop

A new Bradford Interview on Fancast

He talks about nomination, emmy reel, Spixie, Asperger Spinelli angle, and upcoming country fest.

Real life comes crashing down...

on February 27 2007 I got this email from a concerned Bradford fan about his contract talks. We started a dialog not only did we become stronger fans of Bradford but we became friends.

Spikey has cancer. If you follow her on twitter @spinlj she has been updating a lot on there. She is just starting her treatment and I wanted to publicly call her out and express how I am concerned for her health and how much she means to me.

Many times when my own life had not allowed me to post to the blog she has stepped up. There would NOT be a Bradford Anderson Fan Blog with out her. There would be no Spinelli Live Journal with out her. Two of the major fan websites would not exist with out her influence.

She is going to beat this but she has to go through a bit of hell as she goes through treatment first. Can anyone that reads this give her positive thoughts, prayers and love her way.

Soap Opera Central bias against Spinelli

Do you find SOC unfair to Spinelli, Bradford an his fans? Have you noticed a bias of even the mods. As an example. Threads and posts that bash Bradford and bait his fans are left stand while people who post fair, intelligent rebuttals to the haters are deleted and and his fans get marks against them an even banned.

I am considering bidding SOC bye because the haters are allowed to run a muck. My concern is they win though don't they? Maybe we should write letter to their advertisers? I tried writing a message to Dan who runs the site and so far got no response. Ideas? this can not stand. I am ready to fight.

please vote in my poll an respond to this post with ideas.

Message to Bradford and his fans.

I figured that on Memorial Day, I should tell you why I am such a fan of Bradford and why he means so much to me.  

When I was deployed and the days were horrible and long and hot and sandy, I would go back to my room and go on youtube and watch the days' episode. No matter what kind of day I had, Spinelli would always make me laugh and make me feel like I was in touch with the real world. THAT is why I love that character of Spinelli. And I am so impressed by Bradford because he reached out to me and sent me a message through MySpace which coincidentally reached me on the very worst day I had over there. THAT is why I am a fan of Bradford. There are not a lot of people that would take the time to do that, and he seems to me to be such a gentleman and a genuine individual. I truly am a fan of Bradford and want to thank him publicly for his part in making my life tolerable while deployed. :)

Happy Memorial Day

Happy Memorial Day to everyone.  Thanks to all our fallen Service Members who gave all of themselves for our freedom.  Thanks to my fellow comrades that work alongside me around the world every day.  Thanks to the deployed Service Members who are unable to spend this day with their families.  Thanks also to the Armed Forces family members who support and love them.  God Bless

Hosted by Cameron Mathison (Ryan Lavery on All My Children), the ABC Block Party will provide entertainment for all ages. The fun-filled landscape tones down the challenges posed on the popular ABC Wipeout reality program, but wipeouts are just as likely.

There will be music too, courtesy of the Divas of Daytime: Kathy Brier and Kassie DePaiva (Marcie McBain and Blair McBain, respectively, from One Life to Live), and Bobbie Eakes (Krystal Carey on All My Children), who are making their Nashville debut as a trio. In addition to performing at the ABC Block Party, the trio will perform a Saturday breakfast show at B. B. King's Blues Club, and unplugged at the Nashville Convention Center. They will also mingle with fans at the ABC Block Party, along with their fellow stars Bree Williamson (Jessica Brennan on One Life to Live); Thorsten Kaye (Zach Slater on All My Children); and General Hospital actors Bradford Anderson, Brandon Barash, Kimberly McCullough, Greg Vaughan, Laura Wright, and Rebecca Herbst.

The ABC Block Party will also feature performances from artists including Love and Theft, Caitlin & Will and Sarah Buxton, along with trivia contests, line dance lessons, a photo booth and giveaways.

In other CMA Festival news, the Greased Lightning® Fan Fair® Hall, located in the Nashville Convention Center, will once again offer fans the opportunity to meet some of the stars and obtain autographs and photos. For the first time in thirteen years, Reba McEntire will be among the many artists meeting fans and signing autographs. Taylor Swift will be signing in the Big Machine Records booth all day Sunday, June 14.

The Durango® Acoustic Corner at the Nashville Convention Center will feature performances from Razzy Bailey, BroadBand, Don Campbell, John Carter, Will Clements, Timothy Craig, Candice Crain, Justin David, Divas of Daytime TV, Dan Evans, Billy Gilman, Ben Gregg, KC Johns, Sage Keffer, Jimmy Kish, Miko Marks, Amanda Marsh, John Arthur Martinez, The Roys, Damon Smith, Daniel Smith, Brian Stace, TelluRide, Rhonda Towns, and Rachel Williams.

Bradford quotes on Emmy nomination

Here's two quotes from BA on his Emmy nod.

"[My character, Spinelli,] was supposed to die in a car bomb, I think," says Anderson. "So getting to stay beyond that was wonderful, and have this, I feel very fortunate and lucky to have a job." --ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

"I feel lucky to just have a job... Beyond that, the fact that we get recognized and rewarded for doing what we love is pretty neat," said first-time nominee Bradford Anderson (Damien Spinelli, GH). "There are much tougher jobs out there that don't hand out trophies or praise, so I feel incredibly fortunate today for sure." --SOAP CENTRAL

Today ...

Did you enjoy today? Did you call the comment line? Now is a good time

Done? call again.

I promise a recap really I do I really really do LOL

Wednesday, May 6, 2009

Uh Oh

Okay. SO....

...Something happened on the Spixie message board. Although I don't understand how it happened, everyone with a zero post count was deleted. I know a lot of you guys have accounts there and don't ever post but you like the ability to lurk. We just lost over 400 members by this accident. Over a third of our members, actually. I'm sorry, I don't know what to say. I believe a lot of you are going to need to get new accounts. There's always a lot of good information on that board. The link is below...Please sign up again.

I'm actually really upset about this. We all celebrated the day the board went passed 1000 members...I remember it was back right before Spixie made love for the first time and boy we were so thrilled an excited...We partied in the c-box for hours and hours. Sigh...It was just a memorable occasion.

Home sweet home. Please sign up again.

Enjoy the Ride...

Are you like me and you try to dissect everything on your screen? Do you sit in front of your tv and try to understand the motivations characters and future plots? My husband gets really annoyed with me when I do this. We will sit down to watch a night of tv and I will keep pausing the program to discuss what is going on. He will then look at me and put his arms up in the air like he is on the roller coaster."Can't you just enjoy the ride?" he asks...... really. But, with GH, Spixie, and Spinelli's storyline, I am going to try. Why don't you give it a try too. This is a soap. Nothing comes easy. There is no easy payout. A couple's happiness is short lived. Sometimes we get so invested in the big payout we forget the big picture. It is a soap...where you can be murdered by your evil twin and come back to life to save your grown secret child whose father could be 1 of 20 people.

So tonight think of me because tonight is Survivor and I will be trying to be three steps ahead of everything and I imagine my husbands hands will be going up at least 4 times tonight.

Sit down. Buckle up and enjoy the ride. Its going to be bumpy and it may make you sick but keep holding on. You may enjoy yourself in the end and then get back in line so you can go back on again.

Michael Fairman interviews Bradford Anderson

Lots of good stuff. There is audio and a transcript.

thank you to Amy from Scrubs Hub for the heads up on this.

Feeling like a Yo-Yo.

Since the start of the year Spinelli's storyline has been all over the place. Big highs with HUGE lows. I am dizzy.

Lets review for those who have forgotten.

Maxie and Spinelli have sex but get into a major fight after when Spinelli realizes it was over jealously of Winifred. (that was good)

Spinelli gets arrested by the FBI (good)

Kate hires Johnny as Maxie official escort. (lame) Spin and Lulu share their first meaningful scenes in years. (good)

Jason and Spinelli track down toxic balls (weird) while Maxie gets drunk an kisses Johnny (gross) Spinelli gets caught in fire while going through an air duct at the same time Maxie goes into the burning building to get her essential person (riveting) Maxie then needs to be saved by Johnny (stupid) while Maxie see Spinelli leave the burning building they kiss (sweet).

Spinelli goes on the run to protect Jason and says goodbye to Maxie (ahhh) He goes on the run with Winifred (WTF)Spinelli becomes the a hacker slave to an art thief (what?) He is even handcuff to a computer(yeah). Sam and Jason save Spinelli with Maxie help. (good)

Spinelli prepares to go back on the run but Maxie convinces him to come back to Port Charles with her because she needs him (good) and she may hook up with Johnny (wtf).

Maxie makes out with Johnny in the limo after convincing Spinelli to return at his own peril (gross skanky gross gross skanky gross)

Spinelli walks around his pink room in a towel (always good) While Sam and the Jackal take care of the evidence against him (great) with Winnifred (umm ok)

Spam PI is born (genius)

Johnny tries to steal Maxie gum on the dock while the Jackal looks on (gross and heartbreaking)

Spinelli and Maxie have a heated argument (angry Spin always good) Spinelli punches Johnny (YES)

Maxie asks Jason's help to seduce Spinell and she says she is not attracted to Spinelli that way (WHAT!??)

Then we see the spoiler pictures for three weeks from now (confused)

Anyone else have whiplash?

Bradford Looking good in HD

Daytime Confidential did its Top 5 GH Actors in HD and Bradford Anderson got an honorable mention.

There is a poll you can vote in to support Bradford

Bradford has always looked good but HD Spinelli looks more like Bradford in my option.

Friday, April 24, 2009

Bford updated his "My Space".

He just changed what he'd previously written, so we didn't get the e-mails that he'd updated this time. (I didnt' get it, anyway)

It's concerning that Soap Mania cancellation stuff.

Wednesday, April 22, 2009

A beautiful video. It made me cry....

This is a reason I loved Spixie for over a year.....this is why

After today I am so confused and in pain but perhaps I am not quite ready to be trained to give up on them.

Call the comment line

323-671-4583 today was hard for fans today. Let them know your not falling for it.

General WTF a GH Parody. **

these are great. while I have shared them in twitter i have not posted them here. They do at times use some adult language (as a bit of a warning) but they are sooo funny. The creator is amazing.

Link to channel. <--- Guza sits down with Bradford Anderson

The Greg Vaughan is truly inspired. <----

**Lindsay the expert says it should say satire.

All I want from GH...

Celebrating The Possibilities

This Spinelli Fan's Wish List:
1. I would cherish seeing Spinelli finally get the girl he is in love with. All Maxie has to say is that she's attracted to Spinelli in a deeper, more meaningful way, something more intense than Lyke Omg Hawt shallowness.

2. I would like Spinelli to become more fully rounded. Boxing him in as only comic relief when so many fans see him as a deeper character will hinder his character from growing.

3. I want Spinelli treated like a grown man. He calls Jason "master" for god sake.

4. He can be an adult nerd and still function in society. I do it everyday.

5. Even if they never go into his family back story, I'd appreciate knowing something about him beyond the random Granny in Tennessee. A stray mention of his parents at this point would astound me. We never hear anything about them.

6. I'm tired of him being limited. We've seen Bradford Anderson dominate every single piece of script he's ever been given. I can't say I agree with his acting instincts at all times, I'm not that sweepingly accepting...but I do appreciate that he is willing to bend and twist with his character. Give him the material, and let him take the character and the audience anywhere.

7. GH has a huge cast. Let's see him interact with them. Anyone else want to see him with Diane & Patrick more? Love their chemistry.

8. Spinelli's character of TODAY needs to be married to the hippie/punk I remember him being when he first started the show. And yes, that includes smoking weed. Hah. (...I bet Diane smokes...) Let's join the quirky sweet guy with the snarky trouble maker of his initial days. It's great seeing that bitter snarkiness, but it comes out very rarely.

9. Once again, Spinelli is a grown @$$ man. Let's update the wardrobe slightly. I encourage his unique style, but I never want to see him in that superman hoodie ever, ever again.

10. Take advantage of the uniqueness that is Spinelli...He can be comedic and dramatic. He doesn't need to have floods of comedy followed by floods of angst. Balance him with the occasional dramatic monologue juxtaposed with a PI adventure or sexy fantasy and tell me you don't have a next generation Luke Spencer on your hands with all of his versatility.

Ready? Hands in the circle....GO Spinelli on three! 1, 2, 3 BREAK!

"Soap Mania" tour bad news...

Dear Soap Fans,

We regret to inform you that Soap Opera Mania on tour has been postponed indefinitely.

If you have already purchased tickets for an upcoming event, WE WILL BE REFUNDING YOUR MONEY IN FULL DURING THE NEXT SEVERAL WEEKS. We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this causes you.

We are disappointed that the tour must be put on hold. Our mission has never wavered: our goal is to bring you a first class, unforgettable, interactive fan event with today’s biggest stars. But we know that soap fans nationwide much they want to attend Soap Opera Mania on tour, the current economic circumstances prohibit many from being able to afford attendance at this time.

We don’t want anyone’s ability or decision to attend to be a burden when we created this tour to be a fun, entertaining, fantasy-filled experience for each of you.

With our sincerest apologies,

Michael S. Gold - President

The Wordless

Folks, we don't bring over fan fiction here that often, but I just read a truly amazing piece of work that I had to share with you.

NOTE: It is rated for mature audiences for sexuality, so it's not for kiddies.

Anyways, The Wordless is the story General Hospital should be telling with Spixie at the moment. General Hospital, carpe diem! Take this moment and create something that will resonate for generations. I've heard time and time again that happiness just doesn't sell in soaps. I don't know if that's true, but I know what does sell on soaps...ROMANCE. Telling stories about bonds that have meaning about two characters falling in love. If a fan fiction writer can do it and create something so good, GH should be able to do it too.

Here is your map.
