    The computer! The clothes! Ahhh, lol.

    Thanks for the link; I watched it and I can’t bite my tongue about Heather being a downer about the engaged couple. I watched this less than 24 hours ago and I forgot their names. Tony? Anne? Anyway, I wish she would have been more supportive of them.

    I think the word on the street is that they are divorced.

    Ah, that’s too bad; I hope it wasn’t a bad break.

    This documentary has to be at least 10 if not 15 years old. And at least two of the people in the documentary are no longer with us :(

    That's always the bittersweet part of looking at old videos or photos like this one (or, dare I say, the old magazines from the previous century).

    So many familiar faces! Many of the Boston folks were regulars here at Dims. I'd be curious to know how the featured people's lives have since changed and if they now have different perceptions of the SA movement.

    It's my best guess that the one SSBBW who appears at 0:28 is the owner of a UK site called Fat Lot She Knows, Tracey Carr!!!

    What about the music, is that what you're into as well?

    Yeah, she came off very poorly. Hopefully it's just the editing and she's not really quite like that IRL.

    But still, so what? To get even a few years of genuine happiness out of a relationship...

    Who's actually dead?

    It's always sad to hear that people does no longer belong from the living.

    I've been told that the term "plumper" is now considered a bit offensive and not really correct to use, is that the case?

    I remember the classic men's magazine "Plumpers and Big Women" which was really big (pardon the pun) in the 1990s...have not heard the term much since

    I discovered it in 1994 and it was reassuring to a 20 year old me that other guys found the ladies in those pages sexy and attractive.
