What do a fire, a dentist, a doctor and a lost internet connection all have in common? Me, that’s who! It seems like all things came together to conspire to make sure I wasn’t able to update. The goddesses must hate me! Ahhhhh I’m resilient, that and an infraction from a certain message board for not posting something in the “spoiler” tag. Imagine my shock! In all my life I’ve never seen anything so stilly, and I’ve been around the twist a couple of times.

Did you miss me? For some not likely…for others who have written me to ask if I’m okay, thanks for that. It’s appreciated. Sorry for the lack of updates, but with Tamara back on DAYS on a regular basis, Stephen Nichols and Ted King on their respective soaps almost as regularly as Tamara, the work has piled up. I’ve had to tackle what I can when I can. Also, I mentioned in another post that I’ve had problems with what to do about the day ahead clips and trying to streamline things so it doesn’t become so overwhelming…. Well, I think I’ve found a way to cut the time I’m spending on caps and clips in half. I’ve also been trying to figure out what to do about the day ahead Canadian episodes. I hate the shoddy screencaps from the non-digital station that shows DAYS OF OUR LIVES at 3:00 PM weekdays — Global Calgary — and would prefer to keep to the digital HD version of on-the-day episodes US. The screencaps and the clips are far better quality. So here’s what I’ve decided, I will be recording both HD-digital at the regular 1:00 PM airtime on the NBC feed, and the day ahead airing at 3:00 PM Global feed from Calgary. I will only be taking screencaps and the permanent clip from the NBC HD-digital feed only. I have set up a special channel on the Tamara Soap Operas media site for these clips, however, they will only be available for one day until the US airing. Those day ahead clips will be replaced by the better NBC feed as the permanent archive for the episodes. So if you want to watch them, you have to get them before I delete them and add the HD-digital feed as the clip on record. I also will not be putting up the embed into the post as I’ve done before. It’ll get too confusing to keep track of which is which. I’ll be tagging the day ahead clips in the post I make so you know which it is you’re viewing. So I hope that’s all clear. If not, let me know in the comments and I’ll try to clarify it as best I can. Without further adieu, here is the backlog in episodes and screencaps.
Oh, one more thing. I’ve noticed that people have been making fan art from my screencaps and crediting only the creator of the fan art. Well, I’d like a little credit for providing the medium for this fan art to be done. I’m not trying to be bitchy about it, but just that one credit would be a nice gesture.

Glitch, glitch, glitch…. Apologies abound for these being late. With doing sort of double episodes both day ahead and on-the-day clips/caps, I have two episodes to record and then convert. Converting two episodes at once takes some time…. Helps if the codec works. So here is the media for today/tomorrow. Enjoy.
ETA: I’m trying to figure out how I can more streamline this process. Any suggestions, put in the comment box.

So sorry this took me so long to get up, but I had a personal issue come up just as I was going to work and for some reason both my editing software and the program I use to upload to my sites crashed. They’re both fixed and working better. I also had another issue when capping up Tamara’s debut episode. I had wanted to have a clean copy in terms of HD so I could screencap, however, the show I recorded didn’t key in until about half way into the opening, thus I couldn’t get screencaps from it. I then decided to get the beginning from the clip I uploaded yesterday for those scenes where Tamara first came in. I then continued on with the better quality ones. It’s a mixed bag today. The clip is from the Canadian day ahead version.

I’ve scanned and added two additions to the press section. Both have been typed up and added to the press section and the scans can be found linked on the page to the gallery. The one article concerns the recast of Taylor, the other is a letter from an AMC viewer who is very disgruntled with the way the Reese and Bianca storyline is ending on the show. I can’t say that I disagree with anything that was said. I’m going to provide the links to the new additions, but I wanted to hilight the letter by Quin Hodge in Oxford, Miss. Here it is in its entirety:
Trying to make All My Children‘s Reese the enemy or bad guy, like she doesn’t care about Bianca or their marriage anymore, is one of the most insulting things the show could do. It is repeating the same pattern that Bianca’s relationships have followed too many times before. Someone always leaves her, and the relationship ends in a devastating way. We still remember how much Reese loves Bianca and how she would give up anything for her and the kids. She would never give up on Bianca’s love or their her family with Bianca! And, furthermore, to have all this happen through off-screen conversations and phone calls is really just a slap in the face. There is no logical reason for AMC to do that. Instead, just recast Reese. There is still time to undo this damage, and not ruin the only gay marriage in daytime TV, and show that AMC and ABC actually care about gay representation. Bring Bianca’s wife back to her and their family.
Quin Hodge, Oxford, Miss
I think the way both Reese and Bianca plus Tamara and Eden have been treated has been deplorable. The fact that Tamara and Eden were promised one storyline, but got another shows the reasons why they didn’t want to reup for more when ALL MY CHILDREN relocated to Los Angeles. Then Brian Frons, Julie Hannan Carruthers and the current writing staff at AMC wonder why Tamara has re-signed with DAYS and Eden signed with THE YOUNG AND THE RESTLESS. Can we blame them?

Tamara made the cover of the new edition of SOAP OPERA DIGEST. The article is all about the casting change for the character of Taylor. The article is up in the press section and the scans are available in the gallery. An excerpt from the article is below:
Corday reveals he always felt Braun would be back in Salem, thanks to a memorable conversation in August 2009. “It was the night she and Darin [Brooks, ex-Max] sone the Wmmy and she was there with her mom,” he recalls. “She and I didn’t have that kind of relationship where I could be that candid, but the night she won, she was so happy and I was so effusive, the last thing I said to her was, ‘I believe you’ll be back on the show.’ And shee looked at me and said, ‘Call anytime.’ That’s how it went down, and here we are almost two years later and I made the phone call.”
