No, I’m not talking about the British New Wave band from the 80’s who brought us the best song ever written in the history of music, "You Spin Me Round (Like a Record)".
No, I’m talking about my latest obsession.
I’m talking about the website Dead Or Alive.
Have any of you ever checked this out? It’s morbidly fun and fascinating.
It is an eerily accurate, daily updated, database detailing the birth and death of every famous person on the planet.
Want to know if Mrs. Garett from “The Facts of Life” is still alive? It’s there.
Want to know how old Freddie Prinze was when he killed himself? It’s there.
Want to sort how many famous people have died due to volcanic eruptions? It’s there too. (It’s 3, by the way, if you can believe that shit).
I have found myself spending more and more time there during the past week, using all of their cool features, like getting a list of all the famous people that I have outlived.
It’s sick, sick fun.
My favorite activity of late is to take their daily DEAD OR ALIVE quiz. You can choose the category, from entertainment, to sports, to politics, to some others.
Hey, this could be fun. Here is an Entertainment quiz from today. Let’s see how good you guys can do.
Whoever gets the most right will win a special prize from me. Of course, that special prize will most likely be a long, wet, French kiss from me, but you’ll have to pay for your own airfair.
Put your guesses in the comments, and I’ll reveal the answers on Monday.
Anyway, let’s do it! And NO CHEATING, you filthy reprobates!
