Really, there are no words. Read the article in which he "waxes fat and fortyish."
Allan Carr: The Original Datalounge Patron Saint?

Read the book 'Party Animals'. It is a quick, fun read and shows Carr at his 'best'.

Hail Allan Carr!
|by Caftans!||reply 2||01/03/2013|
I thought this was about British talk show host Alan Carr, who is just about as camp as they come.
|by Caftans!||reply 3||01/03/2013|
Allan Carr is exactly how I imagine many Datalounge posters.
|by Caftans!||reply 4||01/03/2013|
I love this photo of him.
|by Caftans!||reply 5||01/03/2013|
In the photo r5 posted, it looks like Carr is saying, "To anyone who doesn't find the Snow White and Rob Lowe production number fabulous: Hssssssssssssss!"

"Allan, those are my karn kob holders, and you don't use 'em to cut up that cocaine crap!"

There needs to be a movie about him, preferably starring Val Kilmer.

Because when I suggested he fuck my pulsating, prehensile clownchasm, the ordinary man fainted.

It's a travesty that Allan Carr was left out of this video!
|by Caftans!||reply 13||02/24/2013|
R8 Sorry, that part is taken.
|by Caftans!||reply 14||02/24/2013|
He's dead, no?
|by Caftans!||reply 15||02/24/2013|
Yes, "liver cancer" .
|by Caftans!||reply 16||02/24/2013|
Oh I see, r16. At first I thought, another DL asshole, this one guffawing at someone dying of cancer. Still, I'll bet liver cancer is the true cause of death, he was a heavy drinker and drug abuser.
|by Caftans!||reply 17||02/24/2013|
Don't get your caftan in a twist R16.
|by Caftans!||reply 18||02/24/2013|
"At first I thought" is a modifier r18, meaning I'd initially misread your post. You were laughing about it being a cover-story for AIDS, in your opinion, which I have no problem with. No twisted caftan here.

I love that PEOPLE has all their issues available in an online archive - you can even download all the issues and read them cover to cover, page by page, picture by picture.
I wish some of the other mags did that, like US or GQ.

"an elephantine man of 42, who conceals his bulk in gaudy caftans and kimonos, gets his hair waved into chestnut ringlets at Sassoon's and makes and breaks friendships with the speed of light"

Scott Rudin is at least in the running.
|by Caftans!||reply 22||12/17/2014|
Of course he is a Datalounge patron saint.
His California license plates read "CAFTANS", and I am absolutely not making that up.
|by Caftans!||reply 23||12/17/2014|
Main question: Was he twitchy, and witchy, and manic?
I think Eric Stonestreet should play him. Or Gabourey Sidibe
|by Caftans!||reply 24||12/17/2014|
There was some Politically Incorrect episode from circa the late 90s where Dennis Miller makes one of his random references to Allen Carr and his caftans.
I know he's anathema on the DL, but you would all love it. (It may still be on YouTube).
Totally agree r20. I've wasted so much time going through those archives. I've said this here before but it's amazing how much less filtered (and longer) those interviews were. And celebrities would admit to things like starving, or doing drugs, or not getting along with their co-stars with next to no consequences.

He tried to make "Candide"... with Elton John as the star!
|by Caftans!||reply 26||12/17/2014|
What a repulsive man. Inside and out.
|by Caftans!||reply 27||12/17/2014|
r23 I never knew that, OMG! The stories about Allan Carr and what a sleaze he was are legion. The 'Party Animal' book is great.

How do you get liver cancer anyway?
|by Caftans!||reply 29||12/17/2014|
Liver cancer used to be called hepatic cancer. Just another example of political correctness.
The vast majority of causes of liver cancer are viral infection with hepatitis B virus or hepatitis C virus.
The cancer usually forms secondary to cirrhosis caused by these viruses. For this reason, the highest rates of liver cancer occur where these viruses are endemic, East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
In Thailand, the parasite, the Liver Fluke, is responsible for most cases.
Liver cancer is deadly with only 15% living more than five years.
In children Liver Cancer is almost exclusively caused by chromosomal defects and low birth weight.
