Snail mail, emails and calls CHALLENGE!

Ok, I’ve got a challenge for all SnBers EVERYWHERE! (AKA: tell your friends…)

Today we are going to kick off a 30 day challenge of SNAIL MAILING and emailing the mags ONCE a day!

The challenge will end on April 29 and let’s see if we can get our challenge campaign published, our voices heard by TPTB and if we can overcome the past month long negativity pitty-party!

Ok, this is what we do, we send post cards to TPTB about Sonny and Brenda AND one separately about keeping Vanessa. If you wish to also send Maurice and Vanessa post cards, which I highly recommend, please do so. It looks very, very good for them to receive mail.

Talk to her about Sonny and Brenda and keeping Vanessa on the show.

I have someone who can have post cards made and sent to SnBers to use. One post card looks like this and I’ve used it in the past:

Please let me know if you are interested and we will start a post on the board where you can communicate with the woman who will have them made directly. I will ask her if maybe we could have a SnB one made also.

TPTB do not like organized campaigns. Make sure when you mail them, you keep it varied and interesting.

Make sure each day Sonny and Brenda or just Sonny or Brenda air, you call the comment line.

Keep it positive, keep it real and be brief!

BTW….. We are THE #1 fanbase, ever!!

See, Maurice says so!

If you have any questions, contact me on Twitter, our FB page, here or on the board, www.sonnyandbrenda.com

Thanks!

Believing the Spoilers these days? Look here…

Post originated @ The Sonny and Brenda Forum by Sara:

These are the worst spoilers of Brenda’s WHOLE return. Literally. I know that as of late, we have kind of been getting screwed. No honeymoon, and with the abused S&Bers we are, one nasty spoiler can ruin the night (don’t even try to deny it). A lot of S&Bers are inclined to believe the worst– like these spoilers below, all of which proved to be false or played out completely differently (in our favor) than they sounded. I compiled some of the worst from the beginning of the spoiler thread above (sources are random but still common ones). In short, I was a loser tonight considering how long this took….

Posted on: 7/29/10 Sonny receives a mysterious call from Brenda. Unfortunately, Claire answers his phone and Brenda hangs up. Jax also receives a call and is worried about Brenda. Carly presents Jax with an ultimatum. When that does not work, Carly runs to Jason. Carly begs Jason to go save Brenda in order to save her marriage to Jax.

8/9 Jax’s behavior will be very confusing. Is he interested in reconnecting with Brenda? Is he trying to make Carly jealous? Its hard to say, but whatever he is up to, rest assured that he won’t want Brenda anywhere near Sonny and he’ll do what he has to to keep them apart.

8/20 *After some nefarious dealings, and mismanagement, Kate is ousted from Crimson. Jax needs a new editor..He turns to Brenda.

9/2 Jason and Brenda kiss. Spinelli tries to keep the photo of it from Sam. Brenda takes Jason to a gala. She kisses him. Jason and Brenda attend a gala. The kiss is captured by the paparazzi. 9/8 Brenda has a secret alright, but she doesn’t even know it! When it is discovered expect Carly, Sam, Sonny, and Jason to explode!

9/11 Sam and Sonny catch Jason and Brenda in matching towels. Carly hires a PI to investigate Brenda’s connection to the Balkan. Kate, Diane and Brenda go shopping. On Dante’s connection to Brenda DZ says: “There is going to be stuff that has happened between them…you can figure it out for yourself.”

9/13 Claire tells Ronnie that she’s pregnant. 9/18 After a confrontation with Claire, Brenda remembers when Sonny married Lily.

9/21 Carly tells Brenda to keep her distance from Jax. Brenda tells her Jax offered her a job. October 12th

9/27 Carly catches Jax kissing Brenda.

10/1 Jax discovers his ex is in town and pays her a visit. After they catch up, he heads over to Sonny’s and orders him to stay away from Brenda.

10/2 Carly tries to use Johnny as a distraction for Brenda.

10/13 Carly is livid when she discovers that Jax is remodeling Metro Court for Brenda

10/17 Carly will push Jax to have sex with Brenda. Which Sonny will also walk in on. This will happen in December.

10/19 *Sonny and Claire reunite.. *Michael thinks Brenda is hot.

10/21 Sonny goes back to messing with Claire after getting the message from Brenda (he sees Jax putting his hand on her shoulder).

10/22 Carly seethes when Jax commences plans to remodel the MetroCourt with a secure apartment for his true love Brenda. Sonny tries to work Claire again, but she tries to resist his charm.

10/26 Hey. Are you enjoying S&B or not? Not really. Probably because I know it’s only going to get worse. 😦 Aww. Does it have something to do with Sonny finding out about Brante’s past and him being with Claire? Yeah basically. The Brenda and Dante stuff is just…yuck. Oh no. Do you have confirmation that they were lovers 😦 ? Yes. Carly finds out about it while Brenda tells Jason everything.

10/27 Expect the sparks that flew between Brante in the past to ignite heated emotions in everyone they know & love.

11/5 Dante and Brenda celebrate a child birthday in December

11/7 Insider, don’t tell me Sonny goes back to Claire for a third time?? More Than likely.

11/8 Oh and by the way, Brenda and Dante were lovers. From TV GUIDE: Brenda mania rages on General Hospital with every man (and boy) in Port Charles falling for the dippy, dreamy charms of Vanessa Marcil Giovinazzo’s ledgenary character, But it’s only Dante Falconeri- the steadfast cop played by Dominic Zamprogna-who makes our Miss Brenda quiver and implode. Turns out, these two not only share a past, but they also had a child together, although fans won’t know the whole story for weeks. We’re sworn to secrecy about that, But this we can tell you: Zamprogna is a splendid actor of sweet spirit and easy, guy-next-door machismo who’s about as un-soapy as can be. A real find.

11/13 Brenda and Dante share a farewell kiss.

11/14 S&B/CarJax. Think SWING! (Sonny/Carly pity sex again?) Sonny will continue to go back and forth between Brenda and Claire. All’s fair in love and war. Claire won’t give up without a fight. Carly’s meddling pushes Brenda and Jax closer together. Brenda tells Carly to leave her alone or she will go after Jax.

11/15 After Sonny and Brenda make love, something pulls them apart once more. And its…back to Claire. For now.

11/17 Brenda confides in Jax and has him swear to keep her secret from Carly.

11/18 Brenda moves out of Jason’s penthouse in December, and into Metro Court.

11/19 A Who’s the daddy s/l is coming for Brenda and I don’t mean the missing child’s dad either. Jax/Brenda/Sonny? anything else you can share? Yes Pretty much Brenda will sleep with both before the end of the year.

11/20 Sonny falls back into Claire’s arms, Claire ignores her new co workers advice. Brenda, Jax, and a big bottle of booze. How long do we think this S&B reunion will last? And will they or won’t they have sex? Until Feb sweeps. And yes, they’ll be together and have sex

11/22 Anything on Brenda/Jax? Yes they share a moment on new years eve. Brenda and Sonny are together and she’s sharing a moment with Jax? Yes correct.

11/30 Things go awry and Luke and Tracy’s wedding. Just as the wedding is about to be officially called off, Sonny asks Brenda to marry him on the spot- they can make use of the already planned wedding. Just as Brenda is about to answer him, Carly feels this is the time she must reveal what she thinks she knows to keep Sonny from marrying his son’s ex-lover. Of course, Carly feels the need to do this in a very loud, very public way in front of all the wedding guests. You can guess where it goes from there….. GH: GOING?

December 8, 2010 Rumorville: There is chatter that Vanessa Marcil (Brenda) may exit the show in a few months time… Rumors persist that both Brandon Barash (Johnny) and Lisa LoCicero (Olivia) are on their way out, although at different points in time.

12/9 -Fans of one ABC duo are in for an unhappy New Year; sources say that the show’s plan is to move full steam ahead with a controversial triangle. (probably Sonny/Brenda/Dante)

12/13 * Carly bullies Brenda to the point of a nervous breakdown.

1/9/11 *Jax can’t let go of Brenda, even when he knows it hurts Carly. *Jax considers leaving Carly for Brenda.

1/13 GH Casting News GH is hiring the contract role of Grace, who is described as “35, Caucasian, beautiful, dynamic, glamorous. She is the daughter of a wealthy entrepreneur. She is fearless, mercurial … and a bit spoiled. We are looking for a well-known, established actress from either prime-time or daytime for this particular role.”

 1/14 only have posted spoilers once about Sonny and Brenda in regards to their engagement at Lunacy’s wedding, you can check my IP. My source is telling me that SnB do get married, but the reception is a horrible event. What I have been told (and it has yet to be filmed) is that Carly spills the beans and Brenda goes missing. I am not clear if Dante is involved, but it seems likely. Sonny lashes out and beds Claire. Sonny and Brenda are the endgame couple and so are Lante, but I can tell you the Crimson scenes with Brenda and Lulu don’t do either character any favors. Like I said, none of this has been filmed, and ABC has a real investment in SnB, so I am not positive they will go the SoClaire way, but Guza wants it. I only ask about Sonny and Brenda, so I have no other gossip, but at least SnBers will get Brenda Corinthos out of this deal.

 1/18 GHH has VMG exit date as Mar. 4 in their rumours column.

1/19 GHH RUMORVILLE After Sonny and Brenda have a misunderstanding, Brenda turns to Dante and Dante shuts her down cold by telling Brenda that he loves Lulu. Look for a shift in writing in the latter half of February. March 4th is the date being bandied about for an impending exit (Vanessa).

 2/2 As for that missing baby, look no further. The baby is not Dante’s. The baby is not the Balkan’s son. The baby is Jax and Brenda’s, leading to outrage, fury, shock, and something incredibly special. Fans will be treated to Carly speaking in Latin as her head spins completely around while “Mad World” plays in the background. I will definitely be stocking up on Junior Mints and popcorn! Carly and Jax’s relationship is a wasteland, and I’m hearing that Jax may be off canvas when this story wraps (possibly with Brenda in tow). Again, only what I am hearing for now. There have been major rewrites on this one! They really have gone back and forth on this story many times over (I’ve heard this from two separate sources now). ~~~~~~~~~~~

So, how many of these spoilers did you freak over?? Personally, in all honestly, I did for all of them up until S&B got back together in November and Vanessa & Maurice got more vocal. We couldn’t have better people on our side!! Long live S&B!!!!!!!!!! This is too good of a fanbase to start getting negative now… when we’re finally married!! Take the spoilers with a grain of salt and keep writing, voting and calling… and remember: Don’t Stop Believing

From me as a reminder for ALL AREAS of THe SONNY and BRENDA FORUM:

This has been quite a road for us. From the days of just watching on our tv’s and recording on our VCR’s & being spoiler free. Now we have the internet, spoiler whores, baiters, haters, dvr’s and clips everywhere. IMO, we have too much information and it is getting in the way of what is truly important…

Sonny and Brenda are together as HUSBAND and WIFE. S%26BAlways.png

Married soap couples rarely do well on a whole but, BUT, this is 18 years in the making. TPTB would not have married them, given them a promo junket or dumped the money into them if they didn’t think they’d be long term.

With that said, there is a huge, huge story going on right now that only needs SnB on the fringes. Is it right that we don’t really see them? No, not really, I miss them, too BUT the writing of the last 10 + years does not allow for the big story to be shown 3 days while the rest gets 2. Instead, Guza likes for things and stories to be shown daily while the rest get the shaft. Ask any Scrubbie and they will tell you.

The negativity here at The Sonny and Brenda Forum is at an all time high. It is scaring away posters WHO HAVE COME HERE FOR YEARS AS A SAFE HAVEN.

If you wish to all out bitch, please go to the Bitchfest forum and bitch to your hearts’ content there. That’s what that area is for. It is a free-for-all area where you can say what you want and it’s ok. Play at your own risk.

I created certain threads to take the place of the CB on the days where things were getting hairy in the chatbox.

I know everyone can’t be happy and positive daily. I know this. BUT, I expect a little better of everyone. I am disappointed in us on a whole as a fanbase. We fall apart at the drop of a dime. THE HATERS BAIT US DAILY. They come in here, lurk, take our fears and speculations, then make up shitty spoilers and post them elsewhere and then those stupid bits of “spoiler” come back here and we flip out because it mirrors what our fears are. WE feed the trolls daily!

As for love scenes, scenes together and such: Yes, I’d like them BUT most married couples are not written that way at all! They need to find their way, be married and deal with others. Right now their storyline has yet to begin. We have a child to deal with and no matter what he will bring a depth to SnB’s marriage. Sonny will want to protect Brenda from any possible disappointment and will be leery of this little boy. It is to be expected, not feared.

Please try not to let the little things bug you. We have so much more than what we had a year ago. We had nothing. We now have SnB, we have a marriage and true love. Not many fanbases have that. Some fanbases have nothing left to hope for, we have much to hope for and to look forward to.

Let’s have some fun, keep sending your snail mail, emails, posting on the GH FB page and calling the comment line. Stay positive and hopeful. We’ve had a huge run for the last few months and had a spectacular wedding of epic proportions. We are very fortunate. Now is time to let someone else have the spotlight while we/SnB support others and other stories for the moment.

If any of you need to talk, PM me, please. I am here for all of you. I will do my best to answer any questions or calm fears.

Thanks,

Ro

Jake’s week

Where do I begin? How do I start this?

First, I must say this. I believe Guza is the worst HW in the history of soaps. Can he write a kick ass montage? Yes. Do his promos look good and appealing? Yes. The rest of his stuff comes across as dog food on steroids.

Second, Our honeymoon was cut. It was shot, along with a bunch of other things that were cut, too. 😦

Third, Jake’s death is more about Jason and Carly than it was about a little boy who lost his life, his parents and siblings and those who loved him.

Fourth, Joss’s surgery, TRANSPLANT SURGERY, from stage 5 Kidney Cancer apparently cured her, she didn’t need to be hooked up to monitors, no stitches, no therapies, no chemo, no blood tests, no doctors, no clean hands or trying to keep her immune system up…. This was an epic FAIL.

I can bitch about our lack of honeymoon. I can cry with my girls, I can ask all the people I know “Why?” but in the grand scheme of things none of it matters. Guza does as he pleases. He cuts what he wants cut and showcases what HE deems good and awesome. He does not give a fig about ratings or about keeping fans happy. I believe he hates us. All of us. I believe he hates GH and ABC. I believe he should be fired and he should be ashamed of himself.

We saw no funeral for Jake. We didn’t see powerful Liz and Lucky scenes. Thank GOD for the Liason scene, even though I didn’t care for them, that made sense and was a day or 2 too late in my book.

Luke being the driver……….. Luke killed his “grandson.” LUKE SPENCER. Nice, he’s raped, killed bad guys and now killed a baby. GREAT. Plus he’s a LUSH not an Anti-Hero. He is just a mess. No Tracy. No phone call to Laura.

Speaking of Laura.. Where was Bobbie? Audrey? Monica? Edward? Maxie? JAX? WTF?

I am frustrated. I know this week wasn’t about Sonny and Brenda. I would have been happy and thrilled just to know they were on honeymoon together off screen. To know it was shot and is sitting on a cutting room floor somewhere is a travesty.

I watched each day this week except for Tuesday. This was a dark, depressing week that concentrated on finding the driver of the car. Many beats to Jake’s story got lost for everything else.

Snail Mail and Email Floods

SnBers,

As of now, Vanessa’s contract status is up in the air and some media outlets, haters and baiters are talking about VMG’s impending leave.

From what I know and for what it’s worth, she is with GH until August and she is in contract negotiations right now and we should not be panicking or giving in to those hateful souls who like to see us upset. I am not panicking, I believe she be re-signing because she and Maurice seem to be getting the S/L they want. I think TPTB will come up w/ a good contract. She isn’t going to stay forever but I think we may get another year out of her. I also doubt that TPTB will want to let her go at this point because ratings have been way up. They will tank if she goes and Sonny may be put back in Carly hell whether MB likes it or not.

With that said, I do believe we should be proactive. It’s been suggested to me to FLOOD every 2 weeks. My thought is similar but I’ve been thinking about this quite a bit. We need to do more, not really a campaign, but something where the WHOLE SnB fanbase works together. When I say whole, I’m talking about not only The Sonny and Brenda Forum but all the other SnB boards, FB pages and individuals on Twitter.

I’d like everyone to:

*continue Email Blasting/Flooding each Monday

*make sure you SNAIL MAIL both VMG and MB….. I say this for a few reasons: All fan mail gets counted and there is a tally. It shows how popular the actors and characters are. It also tells the actors how appreciated they are directly by YOU.

* snail mail TPTB… Let them know how much you love VMG and how much you’d like for her to stay. Be positive, don’t be rude or nasty… Just positive and to the point. Also vary your snail mail to the GH TPTB.. They do not like organized campaigns very much. They tend to disregard them from what I understand.

* Snail Mail and Email the Soap Opera Magazines. Tell them about our floods, you can send them any “Keep Vanessa Marcil G” art you make or find. They LIKE campaigns. They also LIKE to showcase them. Perhaps we should “Campaign” to them. lol

*Call the comment lines each day SnB appear.

*Please participate on GH’s FB page. Yes, I know it is quite the vile place, but maybe one or two nights a week if we can have an organized/sometimes impromptu but organized SnB force on there we can wipe out some of the negativity together. (TPTB have interns who do read the page from what I understand)

Let’s work together and throw our support not only behind Vanessa but behind Maurice, too. He needs us just as much as she does.

Be sure to mention the ratings Sonny and Brenda’s wedding brought in. They are a power house for the ratings and brought GH to #2 unseating B&B and that they were the #1 Daytime program in women 18-49 for the first time since 2008!!!

Keeping the wheels on the SnB Bus!

    

QUOTE
“I’m on da S&B bus till da wheels fall off.” <——–Best quote EVER from a SnBer on GH FB; Demetria!

clap1.gif SnBers…. I’d say we did ok yesterday with all the emails and with that Facebook-GH page blast! dance.gif

Last night was SO MUCH FUN on that GH FB page! I couldn’t stay long but that half an hour with you all was fantastic!

Ok… So, with that said and momentum going… Let’s continue with emailing, add in more calling, let’s try to do more on that GH FB page daily and let’s start sending our snail mail.

Snail mail is our most important form of communication, behind that is the Facebook page (GH), then it’s the emails and calling the comment lines.

Snail mail is very important because Vanessa and Maurice (Because I believe we should send not only to V but M, too) actually SEE our communication as do TPTB who have all the mail counted as it comes in.

As for next official step in the campaign, I still need a pow-wow with Lisa and we need to brainstorm as to who, what, when, and how to go about it.

But, until that kicks off, I think what I mentioned above is the way to go right now. I’d like to keep it simple, inexpensive and easy for everyone to do and to be able to do right now.

Kammgirl had a postcard made for us to send to TPTB:
user posted image

If anyone would like to make one, please put it in this thread for everyone to use. http://z11.invisionfree.com/Sonny_and_Brenda/index.php?showtopic=4975

These postcards should only be sent to TPTB.

We should snail mail to Vanessa and Maurice not only some beautiful postcards, but letters, notes, and cards.

Let’s get creative, let’s work our butts off while the iron is hot and while we are still all pumped up!

Scrapbooks and Basket Project

Hi everyone!

I wanted to take some time today and let you know that the basket, scrapbooks and chocolate covered strawberries will arrive at the studio, this morning  for Vanessa and Maurice.

I want to thank all those who participated and helped make this gift possible! Lisa and Chels worked very hard, through new baby, a cold and regular work to make these books as beautiful as they are.

We also had a board member (libanesa 🙂 )  who contributed chocolate covered strawberries to our gifts for V and M.

Please click on each picture to make full size.. These pictures are just a snippet from each book. There are many pages with all our letters and artwork included.

Thank you again for your contributions, I just know that Vanessa and Maurice will love them and will be surprised today!

TTFN xoxo

P.S.

I will do my best to find out they got them and I’ll let you all know in an update. 🙂
