I'm Victoria Principal's yellow T-Shirt collection
*crickity crick crick crickets*
I'm Victoria Principal's afro wig.
I'm Gabriel Dell, "Sal" in this movie. I was one of the original Dead End Kids from stage and screen. I was always the guy in the background who got the fewest lines. I am playing another thankless role here. But what the hell, I'm in the picture.
I'm the 1974 Chevrolet Blazer that Stewart throws Remy under when the earthquake hits.
I'm the asshole who steps on Ava's hands.
I had my cameo billed as Walter Matuschanskayasky

I'm the dislodged toilet that lay there on its side at Genevieve's bungalow as the water gushes forth from the pipes in the cracked bathroom wall.
I'm Ava Gardner, deciding once and for all to drink myself to death in a long sad spiral, after the indignity of having a line in which calling Lorne Greene "Daddy" forced on me.
I'm the pictures of bodybuilders Marjoe Gortner tapes up as inspiration for his weightlifting. I will cause him no end of problems from his homophobic buddies.
I'm the cigarette that is lit just as the homeowner enters the house to shut off the gas.
I'm the reel of Clint Eastwood's "High Plains Drifter" film that breaks and burns as the earthquake hits.
I am the Vegas show-promoter here to see this Miles Quade dude.
I'm the water swept away citizens who lived in cheap housing under a damn in earthquake territory.
I'm the pieces of cheap plastic unconvincingly painted to look like building cornices falling on the extras.
I'm Ava's cheap Zsa Zsa Dynel wig!
That fucker kept me afloat longer than any blowup life vest the stuntmen could ever have thought of!
I'm one of the live electrical wires dancing menacingly around Genievieve Bujold's unconscious son who has fallen off of a collapsed bridge.
I'm the bottle of pills Remy pretends to take to make her husband forget about that Marshall woman.
Lets pretend you are, OP. Oh no.....we lost the OP of this dumb ass thread. YEAH!!!!!
r17...you were the mayor's wife who rides down in the scenic elevator in Towering Inferno and the nurse in The Poseideon Adventure who yells "come with us Reverend" with such conviction.
new in town r36....these threads datalounge tradition.
Why don't you kill yourself r36 and see if you can rise up tomorrow.
I'm Debra Lee Scott's condescending self-important husband who won't play cards with her
I don't get this thread at all. Is this an elder thing?
r40=sad old self hating gay who does "elder" jokes YET on other threads posts about Joey Luft....sad person, probably at least 75....should die soon.
I'm the bass of the film's soundtrack turned all the way up to 11, but you can call me Sensurround.
I'm the Cowboy hat of the truck driver who plunges off the shaking highway with a full cargo of bovine.
I'm all of the furniture hurtling past Bujold as she clutches a tree for dear life.
I’m a truckful of cows
I'm Bujold setting up her entrance to the party in her audition scene..."Introductions, Introductions...."
I’m cardboard LA
I’m shaking cameras, bouncing parked cars, and a stretching image of an LA building
I’m the people who still insist on driving after 4 minutes of violent earth shakes
I’m Walter Matthau’s shot glass
I’m all the “don’ts” that double as PSA warnings for Earthquake safety:
The idiot with the cigarette in his mouth who goes in the house to turn off the gas
The panicked people who crowd and use an elevator
People running around with flailing arms instead of seeking cover
The cook positioned near a big pot of boiling water
People with luggage, trying to salvage things
Dam area residents who stay home until the last minute
I'm Ava Gardner's false eyelashes, rattling away on the vanity next to her passed out body.
I'm the “art-imitates-life-imitates-art” technique employed by positioning the first earthquake scene in a movie theater while cranking up the Sensurround® in the real movie theater.
"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...
