Realized Dreams

I dreamed up my job on General Hospital in order to support my best dream … becoming Kate’s mom. As a single woman, GH provided me with the means to be a very available mom, bring home an ample supply of bacon, and love my job at the same time. As if that weren’t enough, General Hospital has now made Kate’s dream come true, which is to be a singer-songwriter. On April 9th, General Hospital will debut a song written by Kate called Private School Girls. Kate and her real life band “Traction” will be backing up Haley Pullos (Molly) who will sing the lead vocal during the Nurses Ball. Continue reading

Kate Grahn on GH

In case you missed it, TV|Line shared some big news today:

Kate Grahn, the 14-year-old daughter of General Hospital vet Nancy Lee Grahn, is set to take part in GH‘s 50th anniversary celebration. Grahn will perform her original song “Private School Girls” in the April 9 installment of the ABC soap, taking the Nurses’ Ball stage alongside her real-life band Traction and the elder Grahn’s on-screen kid Hayley Pullos. The tune will hit iTunes the same day, with all proceeds going to VH1′s Save The Music Foundation.

On “Girls”…

I’ve been having relationship issues with Lena Dunham’s “Girls” for weeks now.  I’m a huge fan of Lena Dunham’s, but feel disconnected from “Girls” and for some reason I’m angry about. I’d love to be a fly on the wall in Lena’s head. Yes, I imagine what she thinks about is curious and interesting. But how it manifests on “Girls” somehow, sometimes, irritates me and I don’t exactly know why. My friend said this:

“She is allowed to do whatever she wants without any checks and balances from a network. That’s a beautiful thing. But it’s also inherently self-involved and self-referential and not edited enough. It’s raw…it’s like reading the beat poets. But reading a beautifully crafted work is also beautiful, and something I tend to appreciate more. I like my art curated, generally…I don’t like to look for it in a pile of stuff. But I’m glad it exists.”

I feel so much better now.


Lamenting Promising Lives

I’m not without compassion for anyone who becomes so disconnected from themselves and others that they make irreparable mistakes that they can’t take back.

However, for Candy Crowley to focus her story about the Steubenville rape case verdict on the perpetrators’ loss instead of the victim was inappropriate at best, and disturbing at worst. The boys are not the victims in this story and to treat them us such diminishes and devalues this young woman, what she went through, and what she will continue to go through.

This notion that these boys lives are now ruined is absurd. So they don’t get to play football. What a cross to bear!  And yet sadly for them and so many others, that’s the biggest loss this case represents. I believe these boys were lucky to be tried as juveniles. In fact, being given a 1 to 3 year time out could be life changing for the better. They now have a great opportunity to better their minds and hearts instead of their passes and tackles.
