Hollywood old codgers currently looking over their shoulder to be the third.
Ernest Borgnine's been dead for yonks, hasn't he?
Nah only croaked this morning apparently, at 95.
Borgnine died yesterday.
Although I did think Griffith died a few years ago.
Abe Vigoda cant be far away. Cunt wont stay in his coffin.
I'll never forget that futuristic attack helicopter he flew to the gabba.
Nah serious......I saw Andy died Saturday (?) but I really did think McHale croaked it years ago.
I saw him in something not long back that confirmed he was still alive, although I can't remember what it was.
Surely #3 has to be a woman so who is a 60's female tv star waiting to kick the bucket??
Surely not Dawn Wells or Tina Louise!
Heard termites got one of the Thunderbirds pilots. I'll never forget the galaxy he saved in the latter part of this century. Vale.
Speaking of which, did anyone else think that John Tracy would have been downloading all sorts of weird porn whilst stuck isolated in that fucking space station?
..........and that Alan Tracy was a screaming faggot
Or Cheryl Ladd. Fuck I used to wank to her.
Last week counts as 'used to'
LOL. blonde eyebrows ftw
Brains..the original hipster.
Cheryl's more 70's than 60's
And Kate Jackson was the one for me.
RIP Larry Hagman*
Doesn't matter fucken. I still fap to wonder woman
Also I rate Raquel Welch 1970's greater than or equal to Raquel Welch 1960's. Come at me Syd.
lets talk about how awesome the 70s were..old lags.
Is that Pam Grier?
Fuck, I'm sure i heard Paul Cronin on the radio just last week ?
I'll never forget that Sunbird he pulled over for speeding up Vulture street.
Jaclyn Smith for me but Chezza was more wankworthy. And yes to Jeannie as well.
Yeah completely inappropriate to be discussing '70's TV and movie stars in a thread about a couple of old time TV and movies stars
The 70s were shit, kids being abused all the time, no one having many rights unless you were white, woman and kids all over australia cowering in fear each night hoping daddy doesnt come home drunk and wasnt in one of those moods, people coming to your house and thinking they could smoke, smoking allowed everywhere, females getting gang raped and the media being silent about it because they wernt arabs or aboes, shitty clunky technology, extra hairy pussies which meant more sweaty vags which meant more bacteria which meant crabs and herpes for everyone, the advent of shitty pop music, west coast boring rock etc etc.
Even the sex people were having was lame compared to todays standards.
Apart from a lot of the above still occurring frquently........
Dope bought by the ounce or pound
Fuck all aids,easily treated STD's and the Pill meant fucking for all
Also, what year were you born Jocko?
I grow by the pound.
I dont fuck gays.
Pill still here.
STDs..what are they? 70s thing.
Meh collingwood board.
Long distance phone calls* ?
*subscriber trunk dialling
press the B button
haha OTC STD call.
beep beep beep beep beep "hallo mafangolo"
I'm starting to detect an anti-richmond vibe in your posting of late. We were successful in the 70's and as a consequence, enjoyed a happy and violence free home life. Fair enough, in the mid-to-late 80's the failure hit us like nobodies business and we were more likely to blacken a few eyes at home.
Get your decade right before you go off half cocked sprouting misinformation and bullshit, and generally being an obnoxious know it all.
South were awesome in the 70s.
Bullshit, no ones older than Crackers here.
Close, but not older.
Only of late?
I must be slipping.
Peter Bedford FTW!
But like all Bedfords they've become a sad relic of the past
why does this thread anger my antivirus so?
Crackers talking about easily treated STDs?
that was a standard pick up line back in the 70s
When you were asked if you wanted crabs back then it wasn't an invitation for a seafood dinner
You might be thinking of that Simpson's episode when Borgnine died. Bart joins the boy scouts and Ernest Borgnine is the celebrity attraction for a sailing trip but ends up drowning.
Or his untimely death by weiner in BASEketball.
The Birthday Party, Primitive Calculators, The Saints, Radio Birdman, The Models, Young Charlatans, Thrush and the Cunts, INXS, Mental as Anything and a lot of other great bands were playing around Melbourne at venues like the Crystal Ballroom back in the late '70s. There will never be a music scene like it again and I'm so glad I was there to see it.
All good but fuck it was mainly a melbourne thing, more specifically a st kilda thing. I watched that doco about the small bands and even back then there was that fucken stupid north/south divide. The primitive calculators and ollie olsen thought that whole scene in St Kilda was a massive wank and i guess he hated Rowan at the time.
INXS was more a northern beaches sydney band around that time not a melbourne band. Mentals came from either Sydney or NSW UNI and always played at the old albury hotel on oxford st in the 70s. Same as the birdman..another sydney band. The Saints were from Brisbane. Nick Cave was really the only thing that came out of Melbourne that was any good but as usual the possuers came from melbourne and as one put it melbourne was really camp in that period.
Yep. Very good assessment. The main divide was St Kilda (poofterish art school wankers) and Fitzroy/Collingwood (desperately seeking working class cred)
Birdman used to come to Melbourne a fair bit, The Saints less so. In fact I wouldnt be suprised if they went to the UK before they came to melbourne. I thought that INXS were a Perth band originally but they lived and played in Melbourne for a fair while before they hit it big internationally. I first saw Mentals at the Venue in the late '70s. The Venue was a fairly big space so they must have been a couple of ablums into their career by then.
Roland? They were in Young Charlatans together but Ollie left the band half a dozen times before Roland departed for the BND/BP. Ollie's best band was 'No'. Fucking unbelievable live band who were sampling and using keyboards years before others caught ontio it. If you can get your hands on "Once We were scum, Now We Are God" and "Glory For The Shit For Brains" then do it.
I overlooked The Ears when I was compling my list too. A very underrated live band who only recorded a couple of EPs but left a huge legacy. I saw tham play again last year and they still had it.
A couple of other good Sydney bands that used to come down to Melbourne a fair bit around that time were The Sunnyboys, The Eastern Dark and Feedtime, although that was probably more early to mid '80s than late '70s.
Yeah Roland..i dont know where i got rowan from!
haha the ears is what inspired dogs in space!
what about tsch tsch tsch tsch..what a wanker that guy was and from the looks of it, still is.
haha still it seemed to be a great period to be young and really into music/fashion. You basically got paid by the government to be an arts student.
My time came in the late 80s and by that time it all died out and the club craze/eccy thump was taking off and being accepted by a new generation.
Yeah. Richard Lowenstein lived with a few of the band members
Philip Brophy? Even by muso standards, who tend to be wankers by definition, he was/is a massive wanker. But a nice guy wanker if that makes any sense.
It was awesome. Rent was cheap, drugs were cheap, you could go out and not spend more than 10 bucks in a night.
The ecstasy back then was something else. I first dropped one in '89 and the only thing I can remember for the next 18 hours was hailing a cab and someone threw an egg at us and it hit the taxi and going for it with my girlfriend at the time for fucking ages.
I'm pretty catholic in my musical tastes and I quite like doof doof music.
There was always that huge divide, between the art school junkie and the mechanics apprentice that plays in a punk band. I don't think it was until the early 80's that St Kilda started to develop its own voice and really start churning out amazing bands like TISM, Hunters & Collectors and The Moodists which were a lot less art school junkie and a lot more Australian origin.
