Spotlight/ Shoutout: Kim Zimmer and other random sh*t!!


So I've been reading a lot of wikipedia when I should be doing other things,

and I've come across the "Most" issues in TV.

So I send Kim Zimmer from the show, "Guiding Light" the S/S.
Kim Zimmer acted on guiding light for over 500 episodes from 1983-2009.

"Guiding Light" debuted in 1937 as a radio program, and in 1952 it made the transition to a television soap opera.

Thus, making it the longest running program in history.

Other cool TV factoids,

Longest running TV show (All on TV) --"Meet the Press" 1947-Present.

Longest running TV show with the original cast--"The Wallace and Ladmo Show." 1954-1989.
**Featuring former s/s winner Dan Horn.

Longest running sitcom--"Last of the Summer Wine," from the UK. 1973-Present
**All written by one person, Mr. Roy Clarke.

QATFYG: If any of my info is incorrect, then oops! Also, care to toss around any awesome tv trivia?

  1. Kim Zimmer fans will also enjoy the Mr. Media VIDEO interview in which she talks about working with her friend Alec Baldwin on "The Doctors," replacing Kathleen Turner on "The Doctors" and playing her double onscreen in "Body Heat," her 26 years on "The Guiding Light," and her struggles with alcohol in the show's final years.

"Mon Soleil" - Ashley Park

If there's anything people take away from my piss-poor legacy, I hope it's what a huge, unabashed fan of "Emily in Paris" I am and will continue to be. People love "90 Day Fiancee," "The Bachelor," and other garbage - allow me "Emily," which is at least harmless, kind of goofy fluff (which does, unfortunately, lean into some stereotypes, as the country of Ukraine knows ). I have already watched Season 2 twice. And honestly my favorite part of this show (despite my crush on Camille Razart and Lily Collins channeling Audrey Hepburn hardcore ) is Ashley Park. This woman has superstar written all over her. She's a bona fide Broadway star, and "Emily in Paris" has served as her pivot into the zeitgeist.  "Emily in Paris" is also showcasing her vocal prowess front and center this season, with her covering BTS, "All By Myself," "Sympathtique," and Marilyn Monroe. But the real standout performance is th

"Anchors" - AM Higgins

Here's a nice breezy, almost sensual song from AM Higgins (the solo project of musician Annie Toth) to start your Tuesday off right.  Her debut album "Hymning" will be out November 5th on Victorialand Records. The album was mixed by Casey Foubert, a frequent collaborator of Sufjan Stevens. The album "captures the first years of moving from an American city to rural France." Sounds like "Hymning" will be a welcome escape from the world we live in right now, especially considering that Annie Toth counts poets Mary Oliver and Thomas Merton as influences.

"Happy New Year"- Let's Eat Grandma

There's no way to start the New Year like some extremely upbeat music about the New Year! That's where this new synthpop-heavy single from the British duo Let's Eat Grandma comes into play. It's a delightful song, and it helps increase any excitement about their third album, "Two Ribbons," which will be out this April. I personally am looking forward to hearing more from Let's Eat Grandma, who deserve way more attention than they currently get. Hopefully, 2022 will be a big year for them. Here's one of their older tracks I quite like:
