I’m off to New Orleans for a few days for Thanksgiving festivities. Y’all have fun — I’ll post late tonight, and when I can. Comments approval may be slow, so be patient.

Meanwhile, amuse yourselves with this gallery of how top 1980s pop stars look today. Some used their commercial success to buy plastic surgery. Some didn’t. Most surprising images to me: Robert Smith of the Cure, who looks like a drag queen straggling home through the French Quarter on Sunday morning; Duran Duran’s Simon LeBon, for whom There Will Be Blood; and Wham’s Andrew Ridgeley, who looks bald, normal, and happy.

But what, no Limahl?
