Christ, 2016, quit already

Ex-Wham! singer George Michael dies

Singer George Michael has died aged 53, his publicist has said.

The star, who launched his career with Wham! in the 1980s and later continued his success as a solo performer, is said to have "passed away peacefully at home".
Thames Valley Police said South Central Ambulance Service attended a property in Goring in Oxfordshire at 13:42 GMT.

Police say there were no suspicious circumstances.

Thanks, Jeff, you too!  Is your Dad also in Pennsylvania?  Wow, you are able to still spend time with your Dad!
I hope that's a good thing for you. If so, enjoy, many of us wish we could do the same.

Yes, the War on Christmas b.s. has been muted this year, though it's been noted that's why Trump wants all his
victory tour "Heil Hitler" rallies to be decorated with Christmas trees and he is purposely saying "Merry Christmas"
at each one of them about a thousand times.

Thanks, Lyle. Yes, Dad is in my home town in Pennsylvania. I've had a nice long visit with him, though I think I spoke too soon about "no War on Christmas." The local newspaper in my home town was full of that nonsense.  :(

I saw Carrie Fisher on the Today show last month, and I remember thinking she didn't look well. No offense--she was only two years older than me, but I thought she looked a lot older, and her voice was very deep and husky.

But still, I'm really, really saddened by her death.

And George Michael. I never heard a song of his that I disliked. I was always impressed that his voice was so clear; you could here every word of the lyrics. And back in the ancient days of the early 1980s--oh, Lordy, would I have gone there!

Agreed on all counts!  ;)   Looked like a Greek God, sang like an angel and wrote some beautiful songs, he will be seriously missed.

Hello members!!!!  The Admin/Mod/Tech team is coming to you with news for the new year.

When this forum was originally founded, it was under the URL we all know, www.DaveCullen.com, however, it was often referred to as the "Ultimate Brokeback Forum".  Dave's website had a link to the forum, and the two entities were joined as one.

For a host of technical reasons beyond Dave’s technical ability, he needs to turn his website over to a service that can handle much of the work—and it can’t support the massive forum database. Dave really wants the forum to proceed, so the solution is simple: just split Dave’s personal pages and the forum to two separate web addresses. Everything else remains the same.

To continue to follow Dave Cullen, you can use the existing address,   www.DaveCullen.com .

To access the Ultimate Brokeback Forum, you will need to bookmark this new address:   https://www.UltimateBrokebackForum.com/forum.

We expect this change to take place within a week's time, and there should be no major disruption to the forum.   While the UBF will no longer be linked to DCF,  Dave Cullen will retain his ownership of both sites. 

Please continue to watch the threads/newsbox for further updates!  We will attempt to give you all 24 hours notice before the change takes place.  However, you should make note of the new address now.  If you try to log in at the old address and you are unable to, try to use the new address.  Thanks for your continued participation in this community!
