I''m worried- could someone check in on them?: Annette Funicello; Christopher Hitchens; Lola Falana; the girl from Roxette; Wendy Jo Sperber...
Wendy Jo died in 2005.
They''re all dead honey....dead.
Miss OP? No one fucking cares. Go back to ivillage, Frausow"
Annette, in my hoverround
What''s wrong with the girl from Roxette? Nile Rodgers of Chic has cancer.
I was just wondering about Annette the other day. That poor woman...
What''s wrong with Lola?
Penny Marshall''s sagging red bathing suit from Battle of the Network Stars
Only Wendy has died.
Annette''s house in Encino had a pretty bad fire last March, and she was in the hospital a few days for smoke inhalation - pretty ironic after all those years of puffing on Lark cigarettes.\
Still in a wheelchair and unable to speak or move because of her MS - probably staying at husband Glen''s ranch, although the house should be almost fixed up by now.
[quote]What''s wrong with the girl from Roxette?\
Marie Fredriksson had a brain tumor early last decade. She says she''s fine now.
So did Rosanne Cash, had surgery and she''s fine.
Whatever happened to that nice Karen Carpenter? I heard she got married and took some time off to try to have a baby and get some weight on after all those years of traveling and making other people happy. I hope she makes a comeback soon. I love her but her old songs are starting to sound a little familiar and she''s not getting any younger.
I'm going to see Roxette in LA on the 15th. People in NYC and Boston you have 1 and 2 days to get tickets.
Lead singer Marie Fredriksson looks bad but she sounds GREAT! She's been through hell with brain cancer and now has half her sight but it's amazing she's on stage.
Plus they LOVE the gays!!!!

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
