Tips for Photographing Fireworks

June 30, 2015

 It was always a big ending to the Bauer BBQ when the fireworks would go off. Some people in some years would go watch them in the park or or the yacht club or other places, but most of the time people hung out in the Bauers backyard to watch the show. Most of the time we didn’t actually see the fireworks up in the sky because we were too distracted with the fireworks of relationships being set up right before our eyes. Most times though the cast would oooh and awwwww as bursts of different colored lights played across their faces.

So I wanted to make sure people got the best advice on how to best capture your own Fourth Of July explosions. :)

Now a professional photographer from the Smithsonian gives you tips on how to capture your own firework show on film (on pixel?).

Bauer BBQ Week Kick-Off 2015

June 29, 2015

4th of July Header

Michelle is sending you a very special greeting from the Bauer BBQ 2014.

Thanks to  for sharing.

Every Fourth of July the Bauer family of Springfield host the famous Bauer BBQ. What started as a family celebration grew first into a party for close friends, and later a large event where everyone in town, including people we’ve never seen before, shows up.

This event was always a big event for fans as well usually showing unusually high ratings as even people who had stopped watching Guiding Light regularly would tune if for the BBQ. It also was very special to me so Bauer BBQ Week was the first special holiday week celebration I started. I’m continuing this year.

Bauer BBQ Week means that instead of our normal posts this week we’ll have posts that are episode guides of Bauer BBQ episodes, special informational posts on things like fireworks and food, and hopefully some Bauer BBQ fanfic set at any time with any characters as long as it takes place at and around the Bauer BBQ. If you didn’t get any written for this year. START NOW for next year when we’ll do it all again. Catch up on previous years at the latest Bauer BBQ round up post.

Thanks to Lutzie25 for creating the top image.

Uneven SORAS-ing

June 28, 2015

glmanny:

Checking back on one of my favorite posts. I’ve edited it, added headings, and clarified it in a few places.

Originally posted on Glmanny's Blog:

I thought that I had posted about this before, but it turns out that was only on the Mannyac discussion board, so I’m going to post about it here now. SORAS is an acronym that stands for Soap Opera Rapid Aging Syndrome or less commonly Sudden Onset Rapid Aginging Syndrome. It’s used to describe when soap writers, convinced pre-teen and more so teenagers offer more storyline grist than younger children, send a child off screen for a couple of months and brings them back years older. Everyone on screen pretends they grew up in real time and it isn’t strange at all.

The uneven SORAS-ing is of Susan/Daisy Cooper – Zach Spaulding – Robbie Santos – Jude Bauer – Leah Bauer – Hope Santos really messed up the story continuity (see soap opera jargon page) in the last few years of Guiding Light. Much like

Rules to Introduce a New Character

June 27, 2015

Every Friday I try to post a definition for a term of soap opera jargon. Find them all on the Soap Opera Jargon page and if you have any suggestions please let me know.

Rules to Introduce a New Character – I’ve mentioned before the blog Dark Shadows Every Day by Danny Horn. Today I’m going to define his rules for introducing a new soap opera character. “If they want you to care about a character, then the character needs to make a joke, make a friend and make a plot point happen.” He bases this on what makes a soap opera character interesting and therefore important to the audience. People have to like the character or at least love to hate the character for the new character to stay around. Find this version of the quote in the comment section of this post. But Danny frequently references these rules so you will find many mentions throughout the blog. Especially see his analysis post about why Rhoda drug the entire pilot down in The Mary Tyler Moore Show and how they fixed it.

I would like to add to the list that it helps if they are a member of or closely tied to a core family. Being part of that group or having a vendetta against it so you have lots of interaction with a core family creates deeper and more complicated relationships and means any storyline will comparatively have more leg than similar storyline run with a more isolated character. Not that it always works. Members of core families are written out, but it gives you a leg up in the longevity contest. That is also one reason that it is hard to introduce characters that stick around that are from different ethnic, religion, etc. groups than the core families unless you introduce an entire new core family at once (which does happen) or steadily build a new one. Like an other character not tied in, it’s just to easy to isolate them or for other reasons run out of story.

Take for instance the character of Blake Lindsey on Guiding Light. They introduced her as an independent businesswoman, but her story had mostly run its course when they “discovered” she was really a grown up Christina Thorpe, Holly’s daughter with Roger Thorpe. This inspired them to bring back the characters of both Holly and Roger which not only tied Blake who was conflicted about her belonging to this family, but also tied her further to the Bauers (Ed had been her step-father during some of her key growing up years). If she had remained an individual character, I think when she left during her engagement from Phillip Spaulding (who typically goes through romantic partners like Kleenex), he would have gotten a one-sided phone call or a letter breaking off the engagement and that would have been that.

Looking for Bauer BBQ Fanfic

June 24, 2015

We’re coming up on the Bauer BBQ again and regular readers will know what that means! Bauer BBQ Week is just around the corner. I’ve been working on pulling together the posts – I work on them here and there all year long – and I’m totally out of Bauer BBQ fanfic which means I’m turning to you for help.

Although Danny and Michelle fanfic is preferred :)

Bauer BBQ fanfic can actually be set during any year and can be about any characters. The only requirement is that a substantial portion of it is set at the Bauer BBQ. These can be short one scenes or more involved stories. They can be published before or brand new. If you haven’t written any fanfic before this would be an excellent chance to try your hand at a single scene.

Please send any fanfic for publication to Robansuefarm@hotmail.com

Internet Broadway Database

June 22, 2015
Water Glass Scene

Water Glass Scene

I have been a frequent user and citer to  the Internet Movie Database http://www.imdb.com for at least a decade. Although I’d double check for anything of importance because they don’t do much in the way of deep background (see for instance repeats in their trivia and goof listings and worse their sad mistreatment of soap opera actors which can limit their opportunities for employment in other genres).

It was a reference on Dark Shadows Everyday that lead me to the existence of the Internet Broadway Database http://www.ibdb.com/ which is embarrassing because I have theater in my blood (seriously my father teaches in the theater department of a university) and I’ve always taken an active interest. Of course my first instinct was to check out our own Paul Anthony Stewart (Danny Santos) and find his record along with the happy news that he is indeed still running in Beautiful: The Carole King Musical.

It seems to be strictly Broadway theater performances so for example Kim Zimmer‘s (Reva Shayne Lewis) role in the traveling version of the Broadway musical Wicked isn’t listed. Still this could be a useful tool and I’ll be sure to check back for other Guiding Light stars. In the meantime be sure to check out

Josh Lewis is a Jerk and other truths

Sharing that Josh Lewis is a jerk and other truths. :)

I’m sure that Robert Newman is not only handsome, with a winning smile, but he is probably also a lovely person, but I’m afraid that Josh Lewis is and always will be a big jerk. In fact, I considered calling this post “Why I hate Josh Lewis.” My anti-Josh bias will probably become apparent as I make comments on things, so I thought I might as well explain it.

First, my first favorite soap couple ever was Kelly and Morgan on Guiding Light. While by that point I had been watching for 6 or so years (I was literally started in the crib by my grandmother), they were the first ones to really capture my attention. I struggled right along with them through their own problems and through Nola Reardon’s manipulations. I was soooo happy when they got married and things seemed to finally all be right with my childhood world, even…

End Game Couple

June 20, 2015

Every Friday I post a definition of a term of Soap Opera Jargon. Find more on my Soap Opera Jargon page.

End Game – Sadly this term has strong connections to cancellation. Being part of a soap couple can be a bit like playing musical chairs, who you are with when the music ends is an end game couple, believed to be living together happily off screen (or by competing couple fans plotted how they would be broken up in fanfic). End game can also be referred to talking about the end of a storyline in terms of supercouple status. For instance, “I know Danny and Michelle will get back together because they are clearly end game.” Here is a list of the on screen end game couples for Guiding Light.

  • Danny and Michelle Bauer Santos
  • Rick and Mindy Lewis Bauer
  • Billy and Vanessa Chamberlain Lewis
  • Bill and Lizzie Spaulding Lewis
  • Ed Bauer and Holly Reade
  • Phillip and Beth Raines Spaulding
  • Dylan and Bridget Reardon Lewis (mostly by implication)
  • Quint and Nola Reardon Chamberlain (mentioned on screen not seen)
  • Remy and ChristinaBoudreau
  • A. C. Mallet and Dinah Marler
  • Daisy Cooper and James Spaulding
  • Cyrus Foley and Mel Boudreau
  • Fletcher Reade and Alexandra Spaulding
  • Buzz and Lillian Raines Cooper
  • Josh and Reva Shayne Lewis
  • Olivia Spencer and Natalia Aitoro
  • Frank Cooper and Blake Marler
  • Marina Cooper and Shayne Lewis

Odds and Ends 43

June 18, 2015

While looking for Guiding Light information, I sometimes find things that I think are of interest relating to other soaps. This collection of Odds and Ends related to various soaps that someone may want to know some time. Look for another odds and ends post soon.

Actor John Colenback  has died. On As the World Turns Colenback played Dr. Dan Stewart, one of Ellen and David’s sons who fathered both Emily and Betsy through multiple affairs. A money dispute with the show caused TPTB to write off his entire family in 1979. Dan’s character was killed, but the characters of wife Susan and daughters Betsy and Emily later returned to the show for additional runs.

Read all about the 2015 Daytime Emmys including a full photo section in the June 1, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

Brenda Epperson (Ashley Abbott #2) gives a where are they now catch up interview in the January 26, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

Jen Lilley (Theresa Donovan) and Eric Martsolf (Brady Black) attended a fan event in their honor which was a real life version of the wedding reception their characters never had from Days of Our Lives. Read more and see photos in the January 26, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

A feature on Linsey Godfrey (Caroline Spencer II on The Bold and the Beautiful) tells all about her being struck by a car and learning to walk again. Read it in the June 1, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth. After a nasty automobile-pedestrian accident and months of recovery, Godfrey  has returned to the show. Read about it in the April 20, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

Check out a behind the scenes tour of The Young and the Restless set led by Daniel Goddard (Cane) and Bryton James (Devon). Find the photos in the December 29, 2014 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

The June 1, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth shares a couple of photos from the aging spa storyline on As The World Turns in the “All-Star Scrapbook.” This was a great story because it took Lily’s duplicate Rose and gave her a completely different set of relationships than what Lily had and really defined Rose as her person. It was great. Also, it was a clever way to hide multiple actresses pregnancies at once.

Barry Livingston (Ernie the 4th son in My Three Sons aka their Cousin Oliver) made a guest star visit to The Young and the Restless Thurs., April 16, 2015 as a judge. He had previously appeared in two episodes of The Bold and the Beautiful as neighbors of Katie Logan’s around her first wedding to Bill Spencer. Read more about it in the April 20, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.

See a photo and read more in the June 1, 2015 issue of CBS Soaps in Depth.  (You may want to do a little Internet searching on Runyeon some odd things have gone on since he was last on a soap.)

Girl Meets World does an entire episode flashback to Boy Meets World. My only complaint is that they haven’t let Corey mature enough and really the original cast is still better, but still a great return of a classic series.

If you love the Thin Man movies, you’ll love this story. If you don’t know the Thin Man, you’ll still love it. I’d appreciate it if you’d take a look and share this post.
