While cruising through the news feed this morning we, here at Life Explained, Division Ohio General, (Le Dog) found an article about an actor from the UK that gave up a part in a successful soap opera to pursue a career on the Big Screen.
We didn't read the article, (we are way too macho to care much about soap operas, and if we were going to care about soap operas they would be good, American soap operas, not that it matters, we just thought you should know) but the headline implied he landed a huge role in an upcoming movie, certain to be a blockbuster, and make millions for everyone involved. Good on him, we say.
It is always a good sign when someone can "transition" from one success to the next, without really doing anything. He was an actor, and he is still an actor, but now he is making Hollywood money. He is very excited about that.
He is probably not the first, and since it worked so well he definitely won't be the last. This is going to leave a giant vacuum in the soap opera universe. Advertisers, and fans will need some new daytime drama, something to fill the hours between the morning news about all of the bad things that happened overnight, and the evening news about all of the bad things that happened during the day.
We are going to start the new Life Explained: Days of Turmoil. A daytime drama featuring all of the characters you demand. Beautiful, fashionable people who have had the ability to smile ripped from them by the constant stream of unfortunate occurrences.
And now a word from our sponsor. Don't forget to floss, and brush, brought to you by the good people at Life Explained, Eplains Aging.
Tune in tomorrow when Doctor Dawg finds out he was adopted!

Life Explained the Daily Drama.
There is not much to say, but, for those who find any offense, please remember these are only stories, jokes, and have no relation to reality. Kind of like life.
I like life, and hope it lasts a long time, but it does require some explanation, that is why these blogs exist. To help people navigate times and events that make no sense.
Here are a few places you can find a few things.
The Original Life Explained. Where it all started, a little rambling and a lot of nothing important.
Life Explains The End Views on humanity's race to self extinction. I hope I am wrong.
Life Explains Smiles Because everybody likes it when you smile.
Life Explains Aging Getting older is not always easier, but it is worth the effort. And a few small things can make it much more pleasant.
Life Explains Traveling and Commuting Mostly commuting. Driving bugs me and working bugs me so driving to work is the ultimate insult of modern life, and I like to complain.
Life Explained Explores History. The real problem with history is there is so much of it. It is all over the place. But, if you take the time to look at the small pieces it is fascinating.
Life Explains Music Music is a universal language. I like guitar based rock and roll, but there is a little bit of a lot here.
