I've commented on this before. One of the funniest things I've ever read on DL, and I still chuckle about it now, was when someone was bitching about her performance in "Annie Get Your Gun". This has to have been almost 15 years ago. The were complaining about her diction and they said something like, "So she sings like, 'I wanna wedding with a HONK HONK and HONK HONK and HONK HONK!'"
Like I said, I still laugh about it now when I think of it.
r17, here she is honking that exact song with Peter Gallagher.
I can't tell you how many times I've come back to this post to regard again this Lupone fiasco and listen to it. Is there any way we can send it to a show on TV?
In Pennsylvan eeeey ahhhh!
beautiful voices, a lovely faces - everywhere!
I'm being pursued in my life by this song and I wish it would stop.
It once happened in my youth, in junior highschool band--a piece of music I could not get out of my mind and which gave me insomnia.
Then, during the first gulf war, air control once played the Sammy Davis, Jr. song,"The Candy Man"--(The Candy man makes, everything he makes, satisfying and delicious. Talk about your childhood wishes, you can even eat the dishes.)
And so, back then when we were cluster bombing the Highway To Hell and setting everyone on fire, that song kept running through my head while I saw the agony of the Iraqis under my bomber.
Lately, this song haunts me at night when I try to go to sleep, gives me bed sweats when I try to wake up and yesterday when I tried to land my plane (I'm a pilot for an airline) in Dallas, I almost undershot the runway and nearly crashed---and all the time this horrible Lupone song was going through the back of my head and I can't get rid of it. Any suggestions? Will this go away?
I wish I'd never seen that video.
Doesn't she do requests at her 54Below shows? Someone should ask her to do this.
Speaking of "bump," r26 must be on some sort of drug binge because it has bumped several ancient Patti LuPone threads. Here's a hint, twat, you're a creepy obsessive freak.
Awww, R27 is another victim of toxic shock syndrome.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
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...
