speaking of art: it's amazing what's hapnin on general hospital these days. i mean it's very typical for sweeps month to get the whole cast at a party and start a gunfight, a fire, a blizzard, and a series of explosions; it might take weeks before you realize that only a minor character they introduced two months ago is actually dead, after the miracle surgeries etc. but now claudia - a paradigmatic super-bitch only much much worse only actually just terribly terribly misunderstood only multiply continuously homicidal and deeply crazy although really just sad and so lonely only sexually obsessed with her brother etc, played by the very-fine and notably buff sarah brown - is heading to the bold and the beautiful or something. so she's being written out in an elaborate way that embroils the whole cast in total disaster. it's a mafia/physician/pregnantwomen conflagration: gh apocalypse. every member of the ensemble has multiple motives to kill claudia, while she has multiple motives to kill everybody, that lovely psychotic bitch! can't get that shit at the met.
i've been watching gh since the late seventies. here's a piece on gh aesthetics from maybe a decade ago.
