Nobody? What do think Southerners would find unusual inside Geffen's yacht?
R1 A young man over 25
$200 million dollar yacht and still miserable.
The Ghost Of Donna Summers
The taxidermied corpse of Bobbie Gentry.
Don't you mean under 25, R2?
The Ghost of Laura Nyro
I can't even comprehend having that much fucking money.
Lock up your sons!
This is how we Charlestonians say/spell ya'll. YA'll, Ya'll!
It was Risky Business and Tom Cruise that made Geffen a billionaire.
“That is easily the biggest one I have ever seen,” said Rutledge Webb.
Explains everything doesn't it?
Seems appropriate that there's two twinks walking by in the picture.
His estimated net worth is $5.5 billion, r10.
Does he really mess around with twinks or underage boys?
How did he get that rich?
Behind every great fortune is a great crime.
I didn't know he was in the mega-yacht club.
Costs approx 10% of purchase price to run a year, and 350K plus to fill up the tank.
Must be quite the twink magnet. Hand over your iphone and sign this Non-disclosure agreement before you step on board.
Wonder if he hires ex-Seals like some other billionaire yacht owners.
It also belongs to Larry Ellison of Oracle. They share it. Cuts down on the cost.
I guess he's going shopping for trade at USC and The Citadel!!!
He also owns the Jack Warner estate in Beverly Hills.
The grounds of that house are mindblowing not to mention the mansion.
Geffen is OK in my book- he's out and proud and donates an awful lot to charity
He bought out Ellison. He owns the boat by himself. Ellison found it was too big for most port. It can't get into any yacht harbors and must use commercial ports.
It is the first time in his life David was told anything about him was 'too big'- other than his ego, and bank account.
R20 Geffen's house, & property is a mind blower. He bought the home in 1990 for $47.5 million -including all furnishings (which included many antiques). It was the highest price paid at that time for any home in the U.S. He spent another $45 million on renovations, including moving the swimming pool & cabana (cabana boys extra) from the front of the property, to the back, so pool gatherers would not see cars arriving ,via the driveway - which he had covered with antique pavers brought over from Europe,and cut to exact measurements. Lanscaping alone cost almost $15,000,000. And for the lighting & watering of said landscaping, it was all computerized. Probably the only misstep that happened in the purchase & reno, was that Geffen put all the contents up for sale at auction , and, since timing is everything, all the wonderful custom made Billy Haines furniture, went for a relative song. It was very soon after that Hollywood, indeed, all designers, rediscovered Haines pieces, and their price has probably quadrupled since the Geffen sale. I recently saw 2 very ordinary bedside tables (from the Jack Warner Palm Springs estate) online for $6,000 each. And those are considered on the low end.
Warner/Geffen Estate - 1801 Angelo Dr., BH
Warner/Palm Springs home - 285 W. Via Lola, P
$15,000,000 for the landscaping alone ??? Good God! The landscaping of the Beverly Hills estate is beyond anything I've ever seen.
It boggles the mind how someone who came from nothing now lives like Midas. The Warner estate, the Malibu house, the gigantic yacht...
Here are highly informative tidbits in The Real Estalker about Geffen residences, starting with the Angelo Dr. property. Don't forget the readers' comments which are just as interesting.
R19 - sorry but USC is in Columbia, SC. But he can check out the gorgeous guys at College of Charleston. Also, we Charlestonians do not spell it "YA'LL" we spell it "y'all" and the plural of that is "all y'all".
The yacht is indeed the talk of Charleston and not in a good way!
Who cares about this evil man's wealth. Too bad all that money can't buy him a soul or better plastic surgery.
R2 is correct.
Isn't he a Jew?
David is a top.
Why do you think he's evil, Courtney?
Well, disgusting old men with more money than God need sex also, and variety. I bet that he is sampling some Southern hospitality every night, and paying VERY generously for the "guests" not to vomit at the sight of his naked body.
Does anyone else notice that he looks less ethnic as he got older? It seems like he had extensive surgery to wipe out his dark eastern european looks. I think he even wears blue contacts.
I imagine his body is OK, for a man his age. If I were getting fucked by David Geffen, I'd worry more about my body and then I'd wonder how much he was going to pay me. Who cares about the body...it's about the money.
So Mr. Hollywood likes to talk about Geffen?
Is Gallin still David's best friend?
I don't think Geffen looks horrible. I also think his plastic surgery has been tasteful.
Even as a young man he wasn't handsome but he's far from revolting to look at.
Evil ? I think that's also stretching it.
Well, I'm sure some of Geffen's business enemies call him evil, probably with good reason but I just don't believe he's evil, evil.
[quote]Don't you mean under 25, [R2]?
Now, what would be unusual about that?
I wouldn't be surprised if even the crew is replaced when they turn 25. All but the captain, who isn't allowed to be seen.
"Behind every great fortune is a great crime."
R25 The Real Estalker article, from several years ago, is almost right - with a few mistakes. For instance, the home mentioned on RE - 1896 Rising Glen Rd. was owned by Geffen, back in the late 80's. But the home songwriter Dianne Warren bought from Geffen, in 1995, was at the end of Tanager Way - not far away. ( A good friend lives next door).Tanager's another pedigreed street, re big names, both behind the scenes, and in front.
Keanu Reeves - 9024 Thrasher Ave. (It becomes Tanager)
(former) Tobey Maguire- 9000 Thrasher /sold for $10.7 mil., in '07
(former) Meghan Mullaly- 1435 Tanager Way / sold in May, for $9,970,000(next door to Tobey)
Winklevoss Twins- 1423 / Bought in '12, for $18,000,000
Francis Verber- 1415 / Director of original "La Cage Aux Follies"
(Wal-Mart heiress/niece) Sybil Robson Orr - 1407 / Bought from Simon Fuller, Producer/Mgr. (Am. Idol, Spice Girls,etc.)in '08 for $8.5 mil.
Dianne Warren - 1400 /Bought from Geffen in '95 - best view on street (end of cul de sac)
My friend - 1410 Tanager Way
R39 Best friend may be stretching it, but very good friends - absolutely. Do I like to talk about Geffen ? I didn't start this thread - but for all the ego, and BS
he spews out, and considering he's treated a lot of people terribly- no abysmally, over the years, I still find him a fascinating guy, albeit soulless.
"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...
