God, what was Diana thinking? That dress looks like a bed ruffle! But man, she''s lucky to be marrying into royalty.
You know, because we didn''t have DL in 1981.
Charles and Diana look sooooo in love! This marriage will last a lifetime!
I hear Diana has a thing for the Arabs.
She''s a fucking CUNT for leaving out "obey" from her vows. Who does hell does she think she is? What a BITCH.
DL''s resident misogynist
Nancy Reagan looked so classy at the wedding. Her and the president are said to be very gay friendly!
I hope she remembered to wear a slip under her gown. Don''t want a repeat of that embarrassing faux pas!
Who''s that woman in the back that looks like a horse? Camilla somethingorother?
One day...that will be me.
Once I get Charles alone I will make him forget all about Camilla.
I''m waiting for Luke and Laura to get married on GH.\
THAT is going to be a wedding!\
I hope Scotty comes back for it!\
His gig on Texas turned out to be a bust. I read he might go to GL, but I really want him back in GH.\
They should have him catch the bouquet if L&L get married.
Seven years ago today, "Mama" Cass Elliot died in her sleep.%0D\
What do you supposed was on her tape-deck player?
Who''s that grumpy little bridesmaid?
Uhm, their was no Datalounge in 1981.
I was going to watch the wedding, but for some strange reason, I''ve been tired a lot for the past couple of weeks.
I know, going to hell, save me an aisle seat
You''re going to die soon\
You''re going to die soon\

they''ll probably never have children
I SEE it
I wish there was a channel on TV that played those music clips that you see late at night sometimes...
Oh, how I wish I could marry a prince, too! We''d live happily ever after!
If they have a baby they should call it Up. Then they can sign their Christmas cards - Up, Chuck and Di.
I''m glad she went on a diet before the wedding. I knew there was no way the Queen would allow Charles to wed a woman with puppy fat.
Happy Birthday to me! She''s got to be somewhere under all those ruffles. God, my nuts hurt....
Will, 19 & recovering from surgery.
I think I''m coming down with the flu. Something must be going around because I know a few other guys who''ve just felt like shit lately.
Love the dark humor, R25!
I can take a joke
She looks like she''s marrying her grandfather. I don''t think this bodes well. And the kiss - she was really into him, he was standoffish.\
Don''t even start on the horrible dress with the puffy sleeves!
I''m sure the Queen makes a lovely mother-in-law. I bet within 5 years she steps down so Chuck can take over.
Gawd, the whole WORLD knows she''s a virgin! I wonder how different she''ll look after their wedding night?
I''m debating whether or not to purchase the Village People''s Renaissance album.%0D\
Vinyl or Tape?
Like, DUH! Vinyl!
I know she''s everybody''s sweetheart, but Diana isn''t too bright. did you see her on TV? She couldn''t even repeat all of Charles'' names in proper order!\
The minister said, Charles Phillip Arthur George and she repeats back Charles Arthur Phillip George.
I rather be the tampon in Camilla''s cooch than stuck in this church with this neurtic drag.
Nerves, R32. Certainly not an example of stupidity. You must be one of the petty grammar/spelling queens, correct?
Diana was a very bright girl, did you see her interview before her death?
I wonder how long until Edward comes out? I can''t seem him ever getting married and having kids. Can you imagine if Andrew ever marries Koo Stark? I hear he''s been screwing around with her and that the Queen doesn''t like it one bit! I bet the palace has her killed before THAT ever happens!
[quote]Diana was a very bright girl, did you see her interview before her death?%0D\
Death? Don''t be silly. They just got married.%0D\
Unless you know something we don''t.
Lady Di - big fucking deal. It''s not like she''s the real one and only Diva Diana Ross. Now there''s a lady who sang the blues and who will continue to be relevant in our hearts for years to come. Such a sweet, loving, caring individual.%0D\
I mean, 21 years with Motown and still going strong with her biggest number 1 hit to date, ''Endless Love'' with that guy from the Commodores Richie Lyons or something. %0D\
She will last forever, America''s one and only Lady Di.
I Want The World To Know Gotta Let It Show

Fuck Charles and Diana. I''m going to see Mommy Dearest. Joan Crawford is such a bitch - this should be good!
Isn''t Charles gay? Is Diana his beard? Why would she marry this old fart who is UGLY to boot?
What is this gay cancer people talk of and how do you prevent from getting it?
Hey Halshton, passh me the shtraw and the mirror, the wedding''sh about to shtart!

I''m not buyin that.
I heard there''s a line forming for Nancy in the men''s room.
I wonder if I was wrong to tell Charles it was too late to back out.

Who are the celebs there besides the anorexic bitch wife of the President who is in the hospital?

And to think i would have been invited....
Ghost of Lennon
I see Cher''s starting up yet ANOTHER farewell tour.
I was number 12 inline for Nancy at the after reception. Bitch really knows how to suck the chrome off a bumper, if ya know what I mean.
And yes, she swallows.
Look, the Queen Mum is taking a sip of gin out of her trusty flask! I think they''re gonna play ''Hungry Like the Wolf'' at the reception!
anyone see Arthur? God that Dudley Moore is such a one trick pony. I cannot imagine someone else sucking worse than him in this role.

How can it control the weather and leave Port Charles snowed in during the middle of summer?\
But I know Robert Scorpio will take care of Mykos Cassadine. Show sure is a lot more fun with Scorpio and Luke teaming up.
Is Margaret Thatcher going to be invited to the wedding? I bet she will be. She kind of scares me, plus she''s been talking about relying more on nuclear power because of something called global warming...
Okay, so I''m listening to my Elton John records, minding my own and this fucking bullshit comes on the telly - talk about a contrast. I cling to the existence of artists like Elton more desperately now, knowing that people out there are making fools of themselves gushing over this simpering girl who will shut herself away from public life in no time.
It''s the wedding of the Century! The dashing Prince who played the field has finally chosen his blushing bride, his English Rose! This is why the world looks up to The Royals.

Don''t tell me the rumpled tornado of tafetta that blew into St. Paul''s this morning is going set the style for 80s wedding fashions!
It won''t last.
Oh Mrs. Reagan looks so wonderful. I really like President Reagan, the new US President. I''m so sorry that someone tried to kill him. He''s such a good man, he has such a kind face, I know he''ll keep all of his promises. Praise Allah, I''m so happy that we''re on friendly terms, I can''t imagine anything ever coming between us.

O sure, R69. And we''ll see a black President in our lifetimes.
I''m aiming for Olympic gold in 1984 and nothing is going to stop me!
Charles looks more as though he''s going to the gallows than enjoying his wedding. He must be nervous. He''s fond of opera, a patron of the arts...didn''t the bride drop out of high school? \
I''m sure they''ll have a lot in common.
Imagine her going up to space in that dress! She could always use it as a parachute if she gets too scared. Seriously, I can''t be jealous. She''s headed for such a mundane, trivial existence I almost feel sorry for her. The wedding was so exciting, I could have burst! Not.
I love Nola and Quint!
I suppose by the time Charles and Di''s kids get married there won''t be any of this kind of pomp.
r10, why don''t you scrounge up $6 and start your own goddamned thread?
R10, nothing. The only thing the found was her carcass.
I think it''s Kristen in the pool, but my mom is convinced that it''s Sue Ellen. I''m not sure I can wait two whole months to find out.
Why didn''t Lady Di wear a diamond encrusted headband? That would have looked gorgeous.
My psychic says the marriage won''t last: Diana has a bad case of Car-Pole Tunnel syndrome (whatever that means)
The wedding reflects a Buckingham Palace that's very archaic and traditional but I hear in the Queen's quarters, behind closed doors, she has all the latest technological amenities at her disposal - answering machines, garbage compactors, solar heaters, VHS VCR's, caller ID (she can dial a certain number and a recording will reveal who called her), and her very own personal telex. %0D
I also hear she has placed one of the first orders for what's called a compact disc player. Stereophonic recordings are now being made digitally on these indestructible shiny records called compact discs. They are about 1/4 the size of an album and can fit more tracks. The sound is played by a laser beam and it is always good - it will never scratch or skip, ever! %0D
They're paving the future with gold for the recording industry, as they will be able to mass-produce these rather inexpensively. Lucky bastards will dominate the air waves with these for decades to come. %0D
If I were a Wall Street investor, I'd put my money on the major recording labels, as they will never be ousted from profitability, thanks to advanced technology.
Music played by lasers, R81? Did you see that on one of your LSD trips?
I read that the residents of the Falkland Islands sent them a card and their good wishes. Like anyone in the UK would give a toss about a couple of rocks in the far South Atlantic...
Well, it''s brand new technology so I don''t know much about it r81. Why don''t you go question that guy from the IBM computers, John Watkins or whatever?

Raiders of the Lost Arc is such a fun movie. Do you think they''ll make a sequel?
[quote] I cannot even get married and with Reagan in charge now, probably never will!!!!!!\
Fail, r32. The right for gay people to marry was barely a blip on gay people''s radar in 1981. It was an outrageous concept, even to many gay people. Most assumed they''d never get the chance, even if they did eventually settle down. Longterm monogamy was not a widespread goal in most gay people''s minds in 1981. Even for those who attained it, they no doubt felt the sting of inequality, but no one saw "Reagan" as the sole reason or even the embodiment of opposition to gay marriage, since not a single mainstream politician or political party was actually in favor of gay marriage. It was not a concept most people discussed seriously.\
So, um, no.
Meant to address r47
I want to hear more about this new radar music on little albums
So R87, you mean to tell me that NO ONE in 1981 applied for marriage license?\
ps I do see your point, but still.
OMFG! I just heard one of the worst bands called Emmy and the Emmys. Spoke with the lead singer for a few minutes afterwards. Gap-tooth, kinda rat-faced with a whiney voice.%0D\
Said her real name was Madonna. Yeah, sure it is.%0D\
I predict "big" things for her. You wait and see.
I thought the wedding was lovely. Diana reminds me a bit of myself at that age. I really think 1982 is going to be a great year for everybody. Now, where the hell did I put my car keys?
Wow "Bette Davis Eyes" is still #1.
Damn, I didn''t know Joan Rivers was a close personal friend of the Queen. Must be because of her husband. She is always very nice to him. Their life must be perfect.
Anyone else think Diana looked a little chubby? She could easily stand to lose 10 lbs.\
OT--anybody see those Enquirer pictures of JFK Jr. jogging in Central Park? OMG--hot, hot, HOT! And he''s smart, too--wants to be a lawyer. Can''t wait for the new Camelot in about 20 years!\
OTT--anybody know how to cook a chicken in one of those new "radar-ranges"? Do I wrap it in the heavy-duty foil, or will regular do?
Diana seems alright but fuck the rest of those Royal twats. I watched about 5 minutes of it, pretty boring really. \
Duran Duran are sposed to be on TOTP tomorrow night doing that "Girls On Film". I think Simon''s a sexy bitch. Wish I had a video recorder!
ayb''s gay uncle
[quote]So [R87], you mean to tell me that NO ONE in 1981 applied for marriage license?\
Um ok...yes. That''s what I mean to tell you. \
Can I tell you with certainty that "NO ONE" (I assume you mean no gay people) applied for a marriage liscense anywhere, ever, prior to 1981? No. But as someone who was alive at that time I can tell you gay people didn''t complain that they couldn''t get married because of Ronald Reagan''s election. \
Besides the fact that "gay marriage" wasn''t really on a lot of people''s minds, most gay people were more concerned with more basic civil rights issues, like job and housing discrimination, and the numerous local and statewide efforts to deny us any form of legal protection. \
The period from Stonewall to AIDS is chronicled extensively by gay historians. Perhaps you could familiarize yourself a bit better...um, ok?
Anyone else think Prince Edward is a little light in his loafers?
When is Jenny going to find out that Karen and Marco switched the babies?
I saw the whole thing at Uncle Charlie''s. It''s really crazy but kind of fun, this gay bar actually shows videos and special events, live, Via Satellite, in full living color. %0D\
Not sure if it will take off...too distracting from the purpose of the bar.

Thanks for the picture, R94. I wonder why the woman with the hideous pink hair is holding a blender. Couldn''t she just wrap it and leave it with the rest of the wedding gifts?
Whew -- college is over and this big wedding on TV!
I hope the little gal is okay. I have bad feelings about all of this.
He'd better be nice to her.

Got up. On the news was the tragedy of the weekend, the hotel walkway that collapsed in Kansas City and a lot of people were killed. Oh and I’m reading in the Enquirer about Kate Jackson and Andrew Stevens. Kate was out with us at Halston’s in Montauk this past weekend. She was with Rock Brynner, Yul’s son. Kate will do things like look at the ocean and say how beautiful it is, or go out alone and stare at the moon or walk along the beach alone and pick up a rock and throw it. (laughs) I’m serious! That kind of corny thing. I don’t know. She’s from the South, but still...
I stopped at John Reinhold’s office to hear the news about the new diamond discovery in Australia, and diamond prices are down. Went to the office (cab $5).
I was really upset at Rupert because he’s gone away for weeks to Jamaica, and now half of his assistants are going on vacation, too, and I got really mad at one of them, Horst, because I was telling him that Rupert better watch out, and if they couldn’t help me that I was going to find myself another silkscreener. And Horst was laughing at me like a German—he said, “I should have brought you a rose, so you would be in a better mood.” And I said, “Look, don’t tell me about roses—Rupert got the job in the first place because Alex Heinrici went on a vacation—a long vacation just like this one that Rupert’s taking—and I just looked around and found somebody else. And I can do it again.”
And I blew my cool all day—I hung up on a few people, but it’ll be good for their memoirs.
Where is Barbara Cartland?
I was out in the barbeque pit burning my Donna Summer records when Bruce ran out on the lanai and told me to get in the house quick or I was going to miss Diana coming out of her carriage. I HATE the dress! You know some straight bitch designed that monstrosity. Hold on, I have to put the phone down. I need to freshen my mimosa.

Will Charles stop looking over at Camilla?! When we get out of the church, I will give him a piece of my mind. No more shy Di, as far as he's concerned. I've got the ring on my finger and he's not getting away with it anymore.
I may be a virgin, with an impeccable pedigree, but I am a screamer! He's going to find out real soon!
Cancer can NOT be contagious. Typical homophobic bullshit.
Tonight's the night she finds out all rulers are not 12 inches!
Who was that woman with the lovely voice singing "Let The Bright Seraphim?" Her voice is beautiful, but the dress and that hat made her look like a stewardess! Still, if she can get some help in the style department, I'll bet we will hear a lot more from her!
I absolutely adore "General Hospital"! That Anthony Geary is quite the ladykiller. I swear I've never seen a more honestly manly and heterosexual man in my life!
On an unrelated note, I've started to notice that I'm having ... how do I put this? I'm having some odor issues ... down there. I just turned 16, and I'm admittedly a little heavy for my age and height, but the odor is just puberty, right? I'm sure it will go away soon!
Cheryl, you know god damned well that you were 24 if you were a day back in '81.

No one used the word 'vinyl' back in '81.
Is Charles uncut?
Diana Ross's "Endless Love" with that guy from the Commodores is a monster hit! She is UNSTOPPABLE! I think both she and Olivia Newton John (who's also continuing her mega stardom roll with "Physical") are the queens of Pop Music, bound to continue cranking those great number 1's till they can no longer sing.
Speaking of Diana, WHET to any of the other Supremes? Looks like we'll never hear a peep from any of them. I have it from a good source they are planning to reunite them for Motown's 25th Anniversary in a couple of years. That should be the event of the decade. Can't wait to hear them sing a whole bunch of their hits. It's gonna be such a cool and joyous reunion, to see them happily together again once more sharing the stage!
Diana fan - she is so loving!
I sent an email to the webmaster on the eve of the wedding. I'm sure I'll hear back any day now!
I cannot believe I got up in the middle of the might to watch this hot mess. That wedding dress looked like a bundle of laundry, and did you see her HAIR? For crapssakes, woman, use Aquanet, or a crimping iron, or SOMETHING.
Don't even get me started on the god-awful tangerine going-away outfit with the short sleeves and the feathered tricorne.
Mary Tyler Moore is a real bitch in Ordinary People.
I just ordered my Chrysler K car. These vechiles will save the American car industry, I just know it.
I am just the worst judge of character. I continue to have crushes on men like Elton John and John Travolta even though they're both totally straight.
I guess I'll just drink a can of TAB and watch the royal wedding. Another thing I was wrong about- I could have sworn Charles was still in love with that ex girlfriend Camilla but here he is marrying that nice Diana.
My instincts suck.

Didn't know she was interviewed. Was this after the mastectomy? John has yet to recover from her dying in his arms. Poor thing, I see him at the spa all the time wandering about aimlessly and booking a lot of massage sessions, probably to ease the stress and tension of Hyland's tragic demise.
That's the dead Diana you were referring to, right?
