    haha, I love JY. He was awesome on General Hospital as Lucky, but he really made JR his own role. I'm glad he hasn't left the show (like he's been rumored to have been in the past.) I'm not much of an AMC girl anymore because I can't seem to get into the storylines in the past 12 months (I'm more of a OLTL/GH girl.)

    Wow, a soap-opera actor? Really? That looks pretty funny right next to an ECM recording artist.
