Similarly and parallel to The Young and the Restless’ Adam, The Bold And the Beautiful is featuring a plot right out of a Hitchcock film or “Presents.”
The difference of course is in that what daily drama series relies on: we, the viewer, have no idea when the story is ever ending, or if it is ever ending. Unlike knowing a movie is two hours, and knowing a book ends on the last page, daytime drama, could, Tootsies-style, stop on a proverbial dime. It could also go on another thousand years. Even Shakespeare wrote in soap opera form. Charles Dickens honed his craft on: the soap operas of his time. A Tale Of Two Cities was one of many books originally written as “soap operas.”
This is a tempo chart I made inspired by a scene from the Bold and The Beautiful that featured Susan Flannery as Stephanie Douglas Forrester ushering with utter gentlest her other, played by Betty White. The scene was filmed on the the California beaches, somewhere between Catalina and Venice Beach. As you can tell I’m from the East Coast!
Many celebrity singers peak and then they vanish. Once they have tasted the heights of renown, the step off the stage.
Many die young. Many suicides. Many drug overdoses.
John Mayer was one such celebrity. His disappearance? One horrific Playboy Magazine interview. Makes me wonder about whoever edited that interview, knowing that John, a man then in his twenties, maybe after a drink too many, maybe sober, made one horrific answer. He insulted the inventors of rock music, African-Americans *horribly*. He seemed to spend an attempt at explaining his misstatement only to compare his wang to the KKK. You are thinking: does this dude even have a manager? Or a friend that’s there to tell him when he is all arrogant “[I] can do what it want and my guitar can do the talking if there are any misunderstand
If half as many people remembered the amazingly fantastic, maybe greatest, peace treaty by a president in 40 years, where Egypt/[Palestine-Israel-Universal land?] as were known for his Playboy interview, he could run for president in 2020 where he’d be about 100 years old, having finished two complete terms that went 1976-2024.
That is what John Mayer did by stepping back, getting a grip, apologizing. More importantly by stepping off the stage as a lead man and has been playing for over two years w surviving members, and there always WILL BE (!) surviving members, of the great GRATEFUL DEAD.

New Jersey, USA
[note on the undisclosed location from which I write and on Sundays watch football / Yes, the NEW YORK Jets have played in New YORK FOR 22 years, 1962-1984.
Then, they started and still play New JERSEY since 1984. 34 years, and this state is so humiliating that we host a team in the AFC who won’t use our name. That NEW YORK GIANTS team that have played in NEW JERSEY since JAMES EARL CARTER WAS THE PRESIDENT: also keeping NJ in an attempted state of abject humiliation through refusal to use the name. So today one undisclosed place in New Jersey- like my favorite team for life, I know it is bad for morale but personally, fair weathered fans are needed for ticket sales and nothing else. Fair weathered fans are like fair weathers friends.]
