Jeffery’s Funeral

July 22, 2018

Revisiting Jeffery O’Neil’s funeral.

Glmanny's Blog

Here is my write up from the last year of Guiding Light:

Jeffery O'NeillThings seem to be moving along in full wrap up mode. We got the scene we should have tying up things with a bow for Ava and Remy. Matt and Dinah seem to have reached an understanding and he is finally being the supportive friend she always wanted and needed him to be. Phillip is having it ground in to him just how important saying goodbye is for those left behind. I never thought I’d cheer something Olivia said to Phillip and lord knows she was really only thinking about herself, but “Everybody deserves a farewell.” Yeah! I hope he finally gets it.

Olivia and Reva seem to be back to where Olivia and Katherine were before everything that happened. Between that and all this love for Jeffery, maybe that’s something we can learn from soaps. Stick…

Bauer BBQ 2017 by Robansuefarm

June 29, 2018

I’m picking up at the end of this Bauer BBQ story with this year’s. So flashback to last year.

To make it easier to direct people to this story I wanted to put all the chapter links in a single post, in other words do a link roundup. This story is in the Robansuefarm  fanfic category. This is a fic that I wrote and first published here continuing the story of Guiding Light.

Bauer BBQ 2017 by Robansuefarm

Danny and Michelle Santos, 2009

After a one night stop in March 2017, we pick up the story of our friends in Springfield on July 4, 2017 with the Bauer BBQ. It’s all hands on deck to have another successful Bauer BBQ. Danny is being strangely overprotective of Michelle. Vanilly are having a fight. Kat has brought her boys to town to visit. Rick and Mindy are having issues over their not having a child together. There is something strange going on with a mystery painting and a figure in black is headed towards Springfield.

Laurel Falls

June 17, 2018

Revisiting Laurel Falls.

Glmanny's Blog

This is another entry for my “Places of Springfield.” Check out the page for previous entries and check back here for more.

Laurel Falls Shirt

Laurel Falls – Laurel Falls is one of my favorite places in Springfield. I first fell in love with it when it was Kelly Nelson and Morgan Richard’s special spot. It was heavily used by the teen storyline in the early 1980s. At that time, Laurel Falls was shot at a real park. I’ll be on the look out for a better clip, but for right now this is the opening at 10 seconds in. The next scene shows Dr. Claire Ramsey during her first stay in Springfield. She’s put a bag on Kelly’s feet and is laughing at his reaction. When I wrote this post originally I didn’t know where the real Laurel Falls was, but I’ve since found out it’s in Connecticut…

Springfield Burns

June 3, 2018

“Springfield Burns” a complicated and poorly plotted, but interactive storyline.

Glmanny's Blog

You can’t criticize the last set of TPTB at GL for not trying different things. In a storyline that interacted with the real world, you could read the same Springfield Burns website as the citizens of Springfield and check back for a new post as a blogger terrorizes Springfield by posting incriminating photos (sometimes cropped to look worse than they were, sometimes not), videos, and posts about the citizens of Springfield. The phantom blogger haunted the town for months before it was revealed to be Blake, doing very much what her mother Holly had done during the Nursery Rhyme Stalker storyline only a handful of years before.

This clip shows Dinah acting out while Mallet and Marina attempt to track down who’s behind the Springfield Burns website that is showing tabloid type photos of Springfield citizens. They discover new photos of Dinah have been posted at approximately 8:30 into the…

Summer Starts and We Rejoin the Episode Guide

May 29, 2018

Memorial Day is the unofficial start of summer and so I’m going to try again to start with the episode guide.

Part of the purpose of this blog is to create an episode guide for the Manny storyline. These posts, which include a description of the episode complete with the dates, quotes, and my comments, usually cover a couple of episodes. I include the best Manny highlight clips that I can find and also full episodes when I can find them for days Manny appeared. I try to post episode guide posts every Monday and Thursday nights, but it’s been an embarassingly long time since I’ve done even one. I’ve got a couple ahead now so I’m going to try again, but just once a week.

Catch Up

After I publish the episode guide I copy the entry over to pages so that people can easily pick up the story at any point. To make particular sections easier to find, I’ve broken them into pages, each one depicting a particular chapter aka umbrella storyline for Manny from “In the Beginning” to “Our Hun-NEE-Moon” and beyond. The last chapter was the Trial of Danny Santos.

I’m going to start with reposting the last couple I did and then pick up with the new ones. It takes a bit longer than you’d think since I watch two versions of the highlights, go back and get the quotes ready, and re-read my comments. So hopefully I’ll be able to keep up.

Revisiting a happy thought.

Bye-Bye Tattoo Tony! Just decided that we could use a flashback to some happy news.

UPDATED April 28 2018: I added my signature block and double checked the link and yes, sigh, it is still good news.

Cancellations on ABC – Respect

April 8, 2018

Cancellation is always awful, but the atittude can make it worse.

Glmanny's Blog

I can count on one hand the numbers of time that I watched One Life to Live or All My Children. I watched CBS soaps, so I think I can judge this fairly since I am not an ABC soap fan.

I’ve said it before and I’m sure I’ll say it again. It’s bad enough to be canceled, but they could cancel soaps with respect and not spit in their face. I’m sorry, but that’s business 101.You don’t tick people off  for no reason. It would be upsetting anyway, but the way this was handled leaves an extra bad taste in people’s mouths.

I recently was ending a relationship with an online photo service I’d used since 1998 because they are going out of business. They made a deal with a new place, arranged for all the photos to transfer with one click of a button, and arranged a…

Introducing Audio Fanfic

This is the audio version of my first fanfic. I hope you enjoy it.

Manny Move Back Manny Move Back

I’ve started a new project where I’m going to introduce audio versions of my fanfics. I hope that you enjoy them this way. I recorded them in 15 minute pieces, so you can find your place easier.

My first one is the first fanfic I ever wrote A Typical House which is a story of what Manny was doing in California. This nostalgic tale features on how the family deals when Robbie is assigned to do a family tree.

Soaps Support Strong Women

March 18, 2018

I love this quote.

Glmanny's Blog

A recent book by Elaine Showalter has an interesting  descriptions of soaps in a section called Story Belongs to the People.

“One cultural contribution of the 1930s was the radio soap opera; daytime radio offered a rich choice of serial dramas about women, stories to brighten the lives of lonely housewives. Their shared theme, one historian notes, was women’s strength in the face of male weakness. ‘The men in their lives were handsome, but unreliable. They had affairs… they failed in business… or they were left helpless by blindness, amnesia, or some crippling trauma.’ Women had to step into the breach, save the family, and take over as breadwinners. These drastic solutions to female fantasies were deplored by male writers, as they had in the days of Fanny Fern’s Ruth Hall. James Thurber complained that ‘the man in the wheelchair’ has come to be the standard Soapland symbol.” and…

Little Havana

February 28, 2018

Love Little Havanna.

Glmanny's Blog

One of my on going projects is to create a list of descriptions of places in Springfield. I post them first as blog posts and then put them in alphabetical order on the Places of Springfield page. After I started it occurred to me that it would helpful to add links that show clips of the places described. Newer entries are posted with links and I”ll go back and add others as I come across them. I plan on eventually adding links through time, but again those will come as I find them. These are not necessarily the most interesting or important things that happened in a location, merely the best scenes I’ve found that show the most complete view of the set. Check back at “Places of Springfield” for updates. Now for today’s addition. It ties in closely with Company, so that’s why it’s next.
