Saw her in Cincy a couple years ago. She looked like my very old grandma. And not in any good way.

Pat Benatar on the other hand was extremely hot.

I envy Chris Stein.

I'm not ashamed to admit.

Her outfit from "Rapture" inspired the virtual death of thousands of kittens.

titwrench: AMonkey'sUncle: Wait, MTV used to show music videos?

All the VJs wore onions on their belts back then. We could ride the bus to the movies and see a double feature and get a soda and popcorn for $3. Gas was only $1.10 a gallon and all the boobies were real. The '80s were a magical time before Dubstep and Bath salts. Only freaks had mohawks and you got your ass kicked for looking like a punker. We had Zephyr skate boards Vans slip ons were all the rage and the only time you saw Ugh boots was on a surfers feet after a good winter session to warm his or her feet up. A popped collar was still a sign of douchiness back then but only in movies where a nerdy underdog had to defeat the popped collar rich kid in some contrived competition to win the girl or save the rec center. Oh yeah, and Michael Jackson was black

Women didn't have totally bald cooches, piercings in really weird places and ugly ass tattoos for the most part, and the ones who did usually were carrying several STD's. Guitars only had six strings and were kept in normal E tuning and the music they made wasn't so depressing that the albums needed to be packaged with a razor blade inside for the inevitable wrist slicing that followed repeated listenings. Porn was on video tape, television shows had scripts and actual plot lines instead of following around a family of vapid idiots who were only famous for a really boring sex tape made with a third rate rapper, and if an actress did a nude scene in a movie there was no chance of it being CGI. Turntables were not considered "instruments" and being a "DJ" meant being on the radio. Records were seven bucks and were the standard way of selling music.

The downsides of the 80's were Reagan and hair metal.

Because you all asked, my most memorable recollection of Blondie was a high school trip to a roller disco, shortly after the release of their 3rd album. There was a really cute chick from another school that was wearing tight red leather pants, and who looked surprisingly a lot like Cheryl Ladd, and could spin like crazy while "Heart of Glass" was playing and the lights off the mirror ball were projecting onto her cute, low-cut sparkly black top.

Stuff like that you never forget.

kanesays: D-O-single_G: One of my favorite "cocaine is a hell of a drug" pictures. The look on her face says it all.

I've always loved the epic cameltoe in that photo.

Do you mean the "shaved vulva"?

She was a little before my time but that's ok, when Doc Brown comes by with the DeLorean I'm going to CALL HER on my flux capacitor if you know what I mean.

Fark her. She snubbed the original band that brought her to fame. She is just an old woman, nothing more.

Supposedly, according to Wikipedia, she faded away in the 80s because she was caring for her partner Chris Stein, who had pemphigus. Which lead me to the entry for pemphigus, which is really gross. So, a Debby Harry thread lead me to learning about a nasty autoimmune disorder.

Takeaway lesson: be happy you don't have pemphigus.
