    Texas chainsaw Massacre, a movie in which a crazy man kills white kids on a farm, surprised I've never heard of this.

    Really can't stand the whole "acceptance of homosexuality is paving the way for acceptance of wanting to fuck children/animals/what have you" perspective. Only one of those involves two consenting adults.

    I'm really sad, but not that surprised to read about the death of Grant Hart. In my view his musical and songwriting talents were incredibly underrated and I hope history will be kind to him, as he never achieved the recognition he deserved in life. There aren't that many drummers who sing lead vocals, and Grant Hart was right up there with the best of them. Years ago, when I was a teenager getting into grunge, lots of these bands cited Husker Du as a huge influence on them, so bought their live album on cassette and was blown away. Eventually I ended up owning all of Husker Du's albums and, to this day, some of them still get played regularly. As Vinegar Tits points out above, Hart's next project, Nova Mob, were pretty damned good as well, but he never saw much in the way of chart action. Nova Mob's concept album The Last Days of Pompeii really deserved far more airplay than it actually got, but Hart seemed destined to forever remain in obscurity. His solo career never took off and he spent years playing in bars for very little money. There were rumours going around a few years ago that he had HIV, which given the fact he was a promiscuous gay man with a raging heroin habit in the late 80s and early 90s, may have had some substance to them. Grant Hart never made much money; he lived in his late parents' home until he accidentally set fire to it a few years ago. But he kept of writing and performing right up to the end, in the face of complete indifference to anyone but his minuscule fan base. If ever there was a case of life not being fair, Grant Hart probably fits the bill as a prime example. Oh, and the name of the album that got me hooked? The Living End.

    This is stating the obvious. Before the mid 20th century, there was no popular mass media, and therefore few "celebrities" - just famous people such as royalty, certain stage performers, notable inventors, explorers and suchlike. The advent of TV, film, tabloid newspapers and a wider range and availability of popular music brought with it many more familiar names and faces. Many of these personalities are now in or approaching old age. There's no "epidemic", it's just people reaching the end of their natural life span. The poll is pointless IMO as it's subjective and not quantifiable.

    The one and only time I've emailed to request an obit was to the Guardian in 2010 when I told them it was unfair Stella Nova nee Steve New - a unique pick for me on the DDP - hadn't had a write-up. I obviously wasn't very subtle as I got an email back minutes later basically asking me if I had a deadpool team called The Living End and I was so disturbed at being outed that I've never done it again. That said, New/Nova did get his/her obituary in the end, but I couldn't honestly claim it had anything to do with me. As for Cameron-Blackie, I can't see her getting an obit now, which means my run of unique picks could be coming to an end

    I would like to share a personal experience with you all about drinking and driving after a "social event" with friends. Last night, I was out at a party. I had a few cocktails & shots followed by several pints. Despite my merriness, I still had the sense to know that I was over the limit. That's when I decided to do what I have never done before: I took a taxi home. Sure enough, there was a police road block on the high street but, since I was in a taxi, they waved it past. I arrived home safely without incident. This was both a great relief and surprise because I had never driven a taxi before. I don't even know where I got it from and now that it's outside my house, I don't know what to do with it.

    When I was a kid my mum let the neighbourhood kids who didn't have pets name our goldfish. I can't remember all of them but I do remember Salad and Deckchair as two of the names (of the fish not the kids). Could have been worse I suppose.

    Stop the creation of "Who will die first between these two/three/several somewhat comparable people?" threads. That goes for "Who will die first between these people born in the same year?" and "Who will be the last survivor between etc etc" threads too.

    I think there's a reasonable chance Parsons could still be presenting Just A Minute when he turns 100. Or 200 for that matter - the man seems completely indestructible.

    Just a heads up since last time it happened it was announced in this thread. Mad Hatter posted rather gruesome drawn porn in two threads (Famous For Being Ill, Stan Lee) and is enjoying another month vacation as a consequence.

    Nah. Lardy will be dressed as a nurse, she will wheelchair me in straight through the front door, heavily disguised as somebody old and famous like Brian Blessed or summat, and when we are in we will open the tradesmans entrance ( Lardy has some experience of tradesmans entrances ) and let the rest of you in. It cannot fail.

    Last night I dreamt I was on Pointless and Alexander Armstrong decided to come out of the closet and announce he was in a relationship with Richard Herring! What is wrong with me? I finally dream about someone I do find attractive and then I dream that he's gay.

    You are not new to this forums, Joey. Don't reports hoaxes which are clearly hoaxes. The poorly written article said she died on Sunday while we got positive news from The Sun about her improving health on Monday. It was a total load of bullshit, like the NE on Bob Barker, but though the latest has been reported by complete newbies, a pretty estabilished member like you should recognize, and therefore not post, implausible hoaxes. Thanks.

    TMZ is a good source and they report deaths one minute after they happen. Don't compare it to that absolute rubbish called National Enquirer.

    Do you know what paedophilia means? It means being sexually attracted to PRE-PUBESCENT CHILDREN. You are trivialising the word. Being attracted to post-pubertal teenagers is totally different, and is not unnatural. It is not paedophilia. Neither is having a much younger/older sexual partner, which is something that has been going on since time immemorial. The only people who might be "trying to make paedophilia a normal thing" are paedophiles themselves. If people insist on re-defining the term 'paedophilia' and change its meaning, what do we have left to describe the much more serious, unnatural and disturbing condition of being sexually attracted to PRE-PUBESCENT CHILDREN?
