Joan Rivers In Critical Condition After Surgery!

Joan Rivers at QVC -fp

Oh dear! Comedienne and long time red carpet critic, Joan Rivers, had a brush with death last night.

During a surgery on her vocal chords, not plastic surgery, Joan stopped breathing and her heart stopped!

According to TMZ -

Joan Rivers was rushed to a hospital in New York City moments ago … after she stopped breathing during a surgery on her throat … TMZ has learned.

We’re told Rivers was undergoing the throat procedure in a clinic (specifically on her vocal chords) … when she stopped breathing during the surgery.

Sources say 81-year-old Rivers was rushed to Mount Sinai hospital in New York.

Come on now Joan, you can’t leave us all yet! Joan is way too up front, and has much more fire to spit at “starlets” on the red carpet to leave us now.

Our prayers are with her and her family. We’re pulling for you Joan.

Song of the Day: Halt and Catch Fire Inspired Talk Talk “Talk Talk”

Lee Pace as Joe Macmillan Halt and Catch Fire

Today’s song is retro in a whole different way. No Sinatra, no Rosemary Clooney, in fact it isn’t even vintage in the same way. I have become obsessed with a new show on AMC, Halt and Catch Fire. It is basically Mad Men in the computer age. I think they even use the same office set as Mad Men’s season 1 for the Cardiff Electric Dallas office.

AMC paired up with Spotify (which I have been using at work to listen to everything) to develop 80s playlists for each of the main characters. I have been listening to these playlists almost every day now and I love them! Each character, from Lee Pace’s sex-driven, success powered mysterious Don Draper-esque leading man Joe MacMillan, to the underground young programmer Cameron Howe (played by Mackenzie Davis), and even the COMPUTER, Giant, gets his own playlist (the party playlist).
