  • What a bizarre cultural conversion.

    I am sad about all of the weird cultural milestones of the weekend.

    Sandra Dee -- Oh HOW I LOVE her!
    Hunter S. Thompson -- Reading his articles in Rolling Stone as a teenager BLEW my fucking mind, dudes. I just remember reading it and thinking he had to be a hoax! Hee. Nobody could live like that without ODing or beign jailed for years on end, right? *sniff*

    Also, this is the 40th anniversary of Malcom X's assassination. Now those three will forever be linked in my mind.
    Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

    • Johnny will be devastated over Hunter! If he'd only call, I could be there for him through this.

      <-- never got HST, which I'm sure is suprise to no one here. Hee.

      • I keep hearing that song from Grease every time somebody brings up Sandra Dee:

        Look at me I'm Sandra Dee, lousy with virginity
        won't go to bed till I'm legally wed
        I can't, I'm Sandra Dee

        • See, and I thought that they were referring to Sandy when they sang that. I didn't know there was a person called Sandra Dee.

          *whistles*

          • No need to whistle. You're not the only one who made that mistake.

            I'm more upset about John Raitt than Sandra Dee or HST, but then I'm a big musical theater dork.

            • It's a little weird to me that you love Doris Day so much but you don't even know who Sandra Dee is. Curious.

              • Dude, Is, I was about to make the EXACT same post. I mean, they're practically the same person! Hee.

                • Thirded! I didn't even know SD was Gidget until E! told me.

                  I can't tell them apart at all except that now they're both dead, right?

                  *runs*

                  • Gidget's dead? Whu? Cuz I *KNOW* you ain't meaning Doris is dead.

                    I was in Carmel, and didn't see hide nor hair of her. Dammit. Though I wasn't walking a dog, so she probably wouldn't talk to me even if I did see her.

                    • The original Gidget, not the Sally Field Gidget or the chick who married Greg Brady in A Very Brady Christmas Gidget from the 80s tv show remake of Gidget.

                      That one had Sydney Penny as the next generation Gidget and Buffy's dad as Moondoggie! Hee.

                      *kicks own brain for retaining such knowledge*

                        Would it be too morbid to start up a PopeWatch?

                          • It seriously disturbs me that he remains in control of the church and the papacy. There has to be ways to remove a pope when they're at the end of their rope.

                            • I think "in charge" is a strong description of what he's been up to in recent years. I'm sure there is a small set of cardinals who are really in charge, and have been for some time.

                              I find the voting for a new Pope to be fascinating (with the smoke and all), and while I don't mean to be overly gruesome, I can't wait to see the voting.

                              • Crowded House Drummer Hester Found Dead
                                http://apnews.excite.com/article/200...D893OQS03.html
                                Mar 27, 11:51 PM (ET)

                                SYDNEY, Australia (AP) - The drummer from popular 1980s Australian rock band Crowded House hanged himself in a park in southern Australia, an emergency services spokeswoman said Monday. Paul Hester, 46, failed to return home after taking his two dogs for a walk on Friday night.

                                The drummer's body was later found in a park near his home in the southern city of Melbourne.

                                Metropolitan Ambulance Service spokeswoman Liraje Memishi said ambulance officers arrived on the scene shortly after midday Saturday and reported that Hester had "attempted suicide" and suffered strangulation.

                                Officers declared Hester dead more than 20 minutes later, Memishi said.


                                "They attempted resuscitation but he was dead when they arrived. There was nothing they could do," she said.

                                Memishi said she could not confirm where Hester's body was found, but reports have suggested he was discovered hanging from a tree.

                                Hester played in several small bands before joining the New Zealand group Split Enz in 1983. He and Split Enz singer Neil Finn formed Crowded House in 1985 with bass player Nick Seymour.

                                Crowded House was one of Australia's most successful bands in the late 1980s and early 1990s, with international hits such as "Don't Dream it's Over" and "Weather with You."

                                Currently touring in London, Finn mourned the loss of his one-time band member.

                                "I am deeply saddened by the loss of a close friend," Finn told The Daily Telegraph.

                                Hester is survived by his girlfriend Mardi Sommerfield and their two daughters aged 8 and 10.



                                Aww. He was my favorite! He had that goofy hair and doofy grin.
