Veteran NHRA Funny Car driver Chuck Etchells passes away at 61

First funny car driver to break four seconds.:driving:

Garry Marshall, 81

This gentleman is responsible for most television in the 70s and some of it was actually good, or at least okay.

The Odd Couple, Happy Days, Laverne & Shirley, Mork & Mindy
and ahem Joanie Loves Chachi

He was the first person to cast Robin Williams

He was the one who decided it was plausible that Julia Roberts could be a prostitute who could fall in love etc. in Pretty Woman.

RIP

I was surprised to learn that Garry Marshall was worth 'only' $80 million.

What with his resume, and all, I was expecting more, I guess. It was the early 70's and 80's though.:neutral:

Miss Cleo died on the 26th, from cancer. Man, late night used to be just plastered with her Jamaican-accented ads for 1-800 and 1-900 numbers for free psychic readings.

She was 53.

Now that there's an all-80s music video channel on the Roku, we get to play "name that sexist/racist stereotype & trope bingo". Anything by Motley Crue before "Kickstart My Heart" will usually get you to about 80% of a bingo, and if that doesn't work they do have "Thriller", "Smooth Criminal", and even Cameo's "Word Up" featuring a VERY young Levar Burton. One thing I noticed that I didn't back then is in the video for "She Bop" by Cyndi Lauper. I'd straight-up forgotten Alice Cooper's in the damn thing, but that's not what I noticed.

...Is that ADAM BALDWIN whose motorcycle sidecar she occupies??? Cuz it REALLY looks like a super-young Adam Baldwin. Someone please find this out!!! (if I wasn't leaving town on an unexpected trip to say goodbye to a friend short on time, I'd look it up myself...)

I forgot about this thread. Maybe this is where I shoulda put the link about Kenny Baker, instead of starting a new thread in CE.

It's OK, John, either way works. :)

Name that channel!





Pretty please.

BigV, it's called Flashback 80s. Order is random and commercials are short but frequent. If you get stuck in a bunch of videos you don't like, back out to the main channels page and re-select it; you'll restart with a different video.
