Paula's Pick: Classic Alice

I've decided to start something new on the blog to introduce my readers to various shows or artists that they may have never heard about. I watch a lot of different shows on tv and the web; and if you know me, you know I never endorse something I don't like. That's what this blog segment is about. If I see or hear something I like and I think others will like it too, I'll post it on here. Had I started this earlier, Broken at Love, The Bay, and Super Knocked Up would have most certainly been "Paula's Picks," as would artists Keaton Simons, Phoebe Sharp, and Rie Sinclair. I now have a new pick to add to the list, a web series called Classic Alice


Classic Alice follows the life of a young, female college student, named Alice Rackham, played by series creator Kate Hackett. Accustomed to receiving mostly A's, Alice is disappointed to see that one of her papers only warranted a B-. Her teacher's accompanying critique only adds insult to injury, telling this aspiring writer that he doesn't think she is identifying emotionally with the material. For better or worse this prompts her to start living her life according to classic literature and its most prominent characters. 



Classic Alice is an engaging and charming web series with characters that are relatable and likable. The acting is top notch, which really gives one the sense that they are watching someone's life unfold through a window. The fact that Alice's friend, Andrew Prichard, played by Tony Noto, documents her journey on camera adds to that sensation. For that, and so many other reasons, investing in Alice's life is effortless, much like reading a great piece of literature.

Could Guiding Light Alum Stephanie Gatschet Be Looking to Return to Daytime?

I stumbled upon something interesting while scrolling through Instagram last night. It was a comment posted in response to a General Hospital video. The video was reposted by actress Laura Wright (Carly, GH; ex-Cassie,GL). The response came from actress Stephanie Gatschet.

You may recall that in addition to playing Madison North on All My Children, Gatschet played Cassie's daughter, Tammy, on Guiding Light.

Gatschet's comment to Wright was "I miss creating melodrama...keep an eye out for a good role for little ol' me. I wanna play!"  (Check out the screenshot below)



So could Gatschet be eyeing a return to daytime? How cool would it be to see her starring opposite Laura Wright again?

Gatschet most recently starred in the web series Misguided.

GL Alum Launches Indiegogo Campaign for Music Video!

UPDATE: Morgan Englund's Indiegogo campaign is now 76% funded. To meet his goal, $2,418 will need to be donated by June 2nd. 

To hear Morgan talk about his song Homeward Bound, be sure to check out my interview with him from last week at https://youtu.be/5Dyq4Tc7H-Y

Guiding Light alum Morgan Englund (Dylan Lewis) has launched an Indiegogo campaign to help fund a music video for a song he wrote called "Homeward Bound (A Firefighter's Song)", a fitting title and song for the actor who has worked as both a firefighter and paramedic. 

Englund is hoping to raise $10,000 for the creation of the video, which will be directed by Andrea Shreeman. So far $3,199 has been donated to the campaign with a month left to go. Numerous perks are up for grabs for those wishing to contribute to the video's funding. $5 will get you a thank you shout out on social media from Englund, while the biggest perk, at $1500, will earn you an executive producer credit and a VIP visit to the set.
