Belinda Carlisle – Mad About You

Belinda Carlisle (when she was in her late twenties) is way more beautiful than Stacy’s mom. I am envious of the guy she is mad about.

  1. I always thought Belinda Carlisle’s (doesn’t that sound like a stage name?) best song was “I get weak.” And that the Go-Go’s only really great songs was “Our lips are sealed.” and “Head over heels.” That “We got the beat” was so overrated. As was “Vacation.”

    I saw Carlisle on a TV show a few years back. She’s aged very badly, unfortunately. It isn’t always something that can be helped – genetics and all that. But I heard she used to be a heavy drug user. Maybe that contributed to the aging. But in fairness, she had a long way to fall. She looked like a Barbie doll in her 20’s.

    • She looked like a Barbie doll in her 20’s.

      A chubby Barbie Doll. I remember her face changing dramatically years ago due to plastic surgery. She started to look like a snake.

    • As far as her appearance is concerned, Carlisle looks like she’s been through a lot of plastic surgery and botox.

  2. OT: cruise ship demographics.

    I’ve been on a cruise since Friday, a 7-day Alaska cruise on Royal Caribbean out of Seattle. It’s very nice, the main downside being the way the cruise line keeps trying to pyramid-scam you for more and more money (spa treatments, endless tchotskes sales, photo packages, you name it), which is annoying given that the cruise wasn’t cheap in the first place.

    Anyway, I’ve made some demographic observations about the crew members, whose name badges helpfully indicate their countries of origin. Indians and Filipinos are the two biggest groups by a significant margin, with Indonesians and Chinese following in that order. There also are some Caribbeans, Latin Americans and Europeans. You.may have noticed that Americans are absent from this list. No coincidence I’m sure.

    An interesting aspect is that the Indians are almost exclusively male. There must be some sort of cultural barrier against Indian women working on cruise lines. The women I’ve seen are mostly Filipina or Chinese, with some Indonesians and some from the three smaller groups.

    Until now I had never really encountered any Indonesians that I knew of. Basically they look like darker versions of Filipinos, in fact many are as dark as Indians though their features are different.

    Indians seem to predominate in food service, with the Filipinos as cabin attendants. The workers in the (overpriced) shops and in the gambling casino are mainly European or Latin American.

    Oh, as for the passengers, they’re about as demographically diverse a bunch as you’ll see anywhere. Asians (both East and South), blacks, Latin Americans, Muslims, you name it. Many different ages too, so much for the stereotype of cruise passengers as old aND feeble.

    Lastly, when it Juneau two days ago we rode the Mount Roberts tramway and visited the nature center at the top. It’s run by the Chilkat Indian tribe and staffed mostly by young women. They had to be the hottest bunch I’ve seen in a long time, combining the best of.Asian and Latin chix. Dunno if they’re interested in white men, so don’t go rushing up to Juneau just yet.

    • Yes, they make a very big share of profits on the sales of extra stuff.

      Indians are very traditional and don’t believe that unmarried women should be working on strange cruise ships.

      If you were on an Atlantic cruise, there wouldn’t be many Asians workers, but there would be more Eastern Europeans.

      And yes, the work is way too hard for too little pay for Americans to want to do that, or even be able to handle it.

  3. True, she’s better looking than that Australian “super model,” but then again she’s lamentably flat-chested, nowhere near as sexy as, say, Marilu Henner. And her best song by far is “Heaven is a Place on Earth,” although the the music-video for it is possibly the stupidest of all time.

    • Diane Keaton directed it. ‘Nuff said.

    • “I Get Weak” was better, I think.


      May 25, 2016 at 7:12 AM

    • Marilu Henner… Hell yeah!

  4. Read up on her drug use and promiscuity and I think you’ll change your mind.

  5. The guy she was mad about was Morgan Mason. He was Reagan’s Chief of Protocol.

    • wow that is a shocker- James Mason’s son.

      Looking at his wikipedia picture he must have a great accent to land Belinda.

      But only one child???
