    I watched a horrible free-per-view Kylie Minogue show on cable and he was sitting in the audience, obviously paid to be charming but didn't sing. I know he deejays and also heard about him being on Big Brother but what about that golden voice of his? Has he lost it? Say it ain't so!? George O'Dowd...your fans are calling...

    He used to turn up pretty regularly singing (I should say miming) remixed Hare Krishna chants and heavily-redubbed pop tracks on European TV until last Fall, since when he's been keeping a low profile following a drugs bust at his apartment in New York

    I hope the drugs weren't his. He's been in recovery for many years now.

    More to the point, I hope the court sees it that way. *sigh*

    I was just reading the reviews of "Taboo!" and I hope it's still running in May when I stop off in NYC. Despite the so-so reviews, I'd still like to see it. I'll also wait by the stage door with my Playbill and a sharpie like an awestruck schoolgirl.

    Oh dearie me, you have that syndrome too? :biggrin1: I'm often armed with red, blue, green and black Sharpies for such occasions, just to try and get the maximum aesthetic pleasure from the combination of personalized autograph and whatever program/poster/etc. is available at the event :rolleyes:

    You know, this shit of his is one of the many reasons why Culture Club came to an abrupt end back in the mid 80's. You'd have thought he'd learn from almost dying back then you know?

    Dude, unless it's reopened, TABOO closed in early 2004. I was lucky enough to see it (I've been a huge Boy George fan since 1983) and I think it's one of the best shows I've ever seen.

    If it resurfaces...everyone should see it!

    I have to really like someone to do it, most of the time I just see the play and leave.

    See, and I just read it was closing on Wednesday. I guess I got the year wrong. Fucking wishful thinking...I must have been thinking of "Cats" or "Miss Saigon"...heh heh.

    Boy George is Julian Clary with no sense of humour.

    :hijacked:

    Julian actually produced a record of his own - a cover version of (I Was Born Under a) Wandrin' Star, if you please! This is a fact that will forever be indelibly imprinted in my mind, since I was asked, when buying a copy at one of Julian's shows in London when I was a ludicrously innocent 17-year-old: would you like the 7" or the 12"? Naturally, I asked for the 12", to which the eye-rollingly camp male assistant responded: "Yes, I could tell just by looking at you that you were going to want all twelve inches". Believe it or not, that was a defining moment in my coming-out, as I made the realization that I could interact with the world as a sexual being and a gay(ish) man. *sighs of reminiscence*

    I always knew you could take 12 inches.
