    Just wanted to say I'll officially be attending my local community college, Harper, for the next two years. I got accepted to some universities but it's all much too expensive. Plus, this buys me extra time to think about a career choice. After Harper, hopefully I'm off to study and live in Florida.

    FOR AULD ANH'S SYNE 1/50 22nd April 2019 Many have wondered if the Crowdsource list was heading to a grand total of 0 for the year. Indeed, many people seem to think that we are in a massive drought for celebrities this year. However, the Grim Reaper has finally answered that question with the death of former Vietnamese president Le Duc Anh, who finally brings a score to the Crowdsource list. He began his career by joining the military in 1945, where he sided with the forces in the communist North Vietnam. Slowly but surely he began to rise higher up the ranks in the military, and he eventually led the Vietnam forces in the People's Republic of Kampuchea throughout the 1980s. He later entered politics, first holding the position of Minister of Defense and then becoming Vietnam's 4th president in 1992. Though the position was mostly symbolic, that position did become more important during his tenure. He was considered the most conservative of the three leaders during his tenure. After a major stroke in 1996 (which he surprisingly lasted), he stepped down the following year. In recent years, he became a favorite of drol, who is largely responsible for his high debut appearance on the crowdsource list. And despite gaining the title of immortal, Duc ended up beating out the Duke by dying at the ripe old age of 98, once again proving that immortals don't exist in the post Clive Dunn world. Many will wonder if we'll have to wait another four months for the next hit, however, news on a few picks suggest that we won't have to wait that long...

    I'm working on this. There will be another OoO megalist later this year. I'm compiling the list at the moment and am doing it by alphabetical order by club. At the moment, I'm on Charlton so there's some way to go yet but I'm already on 150 names. Once the list is done I'll check the names and delete those gone and then we should have a complete list.

    Anne Buydens 100 today! Is that the first noteworthy centenarian couple where both were concurrently living past 100? IE Dolores Hope didn't turn 100 until after Bob's death.

    Vonda McIntyre, SF author, has died aged 70. Wrote some of the first authorised Star Trek books, you know, and gave Sulu his first name. Now she is Su-long, DI gets joker points. That's two DDP heavyweights with 8 point leads already, are we due a Clash of the Titans in the Quarterfinals? At least, that was my speil until it came out that Mahendran, one of the most acclaimed directors in Indian film (and believe me, that's quite an accolade), has died. So Spade actually has 11 points. Somewhere someone's handed a poisoned chalice to Biblio, and Joey is breathing a sigh of relief I didn't go for Best Losing Score! Death Impends also had Mahendran, so do we have a Quarterfinal set already on April 2nd? The directors death gives more usual score leads to Banana and Clorox. Round 3 1. The Mad Hatter vs Boudicca 0-0 2. Rad vs Banana 0-3 3. John Key vs Death Impends 0-11 4. The Quim Reaper vs Book 0-0 5. Gcreptile vs Pedro 0-0 6. Chorizo vs Torva Messor 0-0 7. Bibliogryphon vs Spade Cooley 0-11 8. Deadsox vs Clorox 0-3

    Next update: The new hits, as far as I am aware: Mike Willesee, Manohar Parrikar, Edmund Capon, Samantha McConnell Hmm, that's actually less than I thought. If I see it correctly, nobody picked Dick Dale, nor Angus Sinclair, nor Jan-Michael Vincent, etc... However, Bernice McCabe got her belated obit. As such, the result is this: Rank Team name Points 1 GCReptile 628 2 Phantom of the Midway 624 3 Cpt Chorizo 574 4 Devon Death Trip 573 5 Joey Russ 558 6 Clorox Bleachman 548 7 Sir Creep 478 8 drol 477 9 msc 464 10 Death Impends 461 11 Banana 446 12 Skinny Kiltrunner 412 13 Grim Up North 289 14 YoungWillz 268 15 Book 129 16 Yorkshire Banker 124 17 Fixed Business 84 18 Prophet 83 19 markb4 81 20 Deathray 73 20 Gooseberry Crumble 73 20 John Key 73 23 Grave Danger 56 24 theoldlady 49 24 The mad hatter 49 26 The old crem 35 27 Bibliogryphon 0 27 The Unknown Man 0 27 The Quim Reaper 0 27 Pedro 67 0 Ahem, yes I am leading after three hits in this update. However, I previously said that I will not use the replacement period. So I am not going to lead after July. Feel free to point out any mistakes or omissions! Especially those UK-centric celebrities I tend to miss. Edit: Baroness Warnock for the next update
