    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

    To celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Alien Film Franchise, six new short films are to be released. March 29: "Alien: Containment" — Four survivors find themselves stranded aboard a small escape pod in deep space. Trying to piece together the details around the outbreak that led to their ship's destruction, they find themselves unsure to trust whether or not one of them might be infected. Written and directed by Chris Reading. April 5: "Alien: Specimen" — It's the night shift in a colony greenhouse, and Julie, a botanist, does her best to contain suspicious soil samples that have triggered her sensitive lab dog. Despite her best efforts the lab unexpectedly goes into full shutdown and she is trapped inside. Little does she know, an alien specimen has escaped the mysterious cargo, and a game of cat and mouse ensues as the creature searches for a host. Directed by Kelsey Taylor. April 12: "Alien: Night Shift" — When a missing space trucker is discovered hungover and disoriented, his co-worker suggests a nightcap as a remedy. Near closing time, they are reluctantly allowed inside the colony supply depot where the trucker's condition worsens, leaving a young supply worker alone to take matters into her own hands. Written and directed by Aidan Brezonick. April 19: "Alien: Ore" — As a hard-working miner of a planet mining colony, Lorraine longs to make a better life for her daughter and grandchildren. When her shift uncovers the death of a fellow miner under mysterious circumstances, Lorraine is forced to choose between escape or defying management orders and facing her fears to fight for the safety of her family. Written and directed by the Spear Sisters. April 26: "Alien: Harvest" — The surviving crew of a damaged deep-space harvester have minutes to reach the emergency evacuation shuttle. A motion sensor is their only navigation tool leading them to safety while a creature in the shadows terrorizes the crew. However, the greatest threat might have been hiding in plain sight all along. Directed by Benjamin Howdeshell. April 26: "Alien: Alone" — Hope, an abandoned crewmember aboard the derelict chemical hauler Otranto, has spent a year trying to keep her ship and herself alive as both slowly fall apart. After discovering hidden cargo, she risks it all to power up the broken ship in search of human life. Written and directed by Noah Miller.

    Clayton's sad demise puts Fear into 3 ties... No jokers but potentially a lot of game changers. But first, Chorizo, Grim, Reptile and me all shared the songwriter, so no change. Also Rad extends his lead, and is likely Banana's next victim... sorry, I mean opponent. Nah, victim... Please pick more of my DDP team in future and then curse them with terrible predictions. Yes, TQR of "I am totally losing this round 1/2/etc tie, arse burgers!" fame has taken the lead on forum veteran Maryport. Young Clorox, another Cup newcomer, takes the lead against 2018 AO Deadpool winner, AO Guy. And Death Impends takes the lead on hits in the Admin Derby. Elsewhere, the coin toss for Old Lady/Boudicca has happened. And teams for Round 3 can come in. Currently its me v Deathray in the final by default... Round 2 1. Rad Vs. Yorkshire Banker 9-0 2. Chorizo Vs. Grim Up North 12-9 3. Clorox Vs. Alt Obits Guy 9-6 4. Maryportfuncity Vs. The Quim Reaper 3-6 5. DDT Vs. Death Impends 15-15 6. The Dead Cow Vs. Deadsox 3-3 7. Charon Vs. Engineer 3-0 8. Deathray Vs. The Mad Hatter 3-6 9. Gcreptile Vs. msc 19-12 10. Joey Russ Vs. Banana 15-22 11. Sir Creep Vs. Spade Cooley 7-15 12. Torva Messor Vs Dr T 15-3 13. Bibliogryphon Vs. Book 0-6 14. John Key Vs. Heef 4-3 15. Young Willz Vs. Pedro 0-3 16. The Old Lady Vs. Boudicca. 0-0

    What a load of bollocks.... The time has come for the country to accept that Brexit is a load of Bollocks. It was a plot by the establishment to harness anti-establishment feeling into a project that has only one beneficiary; the rich and elite in our society. Bollocks to Brexit, bollocks to people like you Charon, who want to sacrifice the stability of future generations for the sake of their own narcissistic delusions and patriotic misdirection that makes them think this country is somewhere better by isolating it's trading links and opportunities with the outside world.

    Haven’t said it yet but thanks to @Joey Russ for putting up a fight. Sucks that we had to go up against each other so early, but it would have happened eventually

    Good evening Tel Aviv! Here is the usual review of the contestants for this year's competition, imho. So far I have watched the first semi-final competitors. Here we go.... Worst efforts (barring the wtf songs, I'm coming to them): Poland - like an annoying song sung by annoying little girls having a game of skip rope in a playground. Slovenia - singer looks like a heroin addict, song sung possibly while on heroin. Slow, sad, goes nowhere. San Marino - poppy little number, definitely got something, however, we are so over repetitive song titles that bear no actual relation to the rest of the song, right? Those WTF did I just watch? songs: Portugal - left me speechless. I guess it's art. What it's not is a song. A collection of noise which is all shitshow and no substance. Iceland - right, I'm old enough to remember when kids' drama used to have their characters form a band for the school disco or some event. This was like watching that, but with some overt sado-masochism thrown in. It's shouty, weird and will probably advance. But there's little merit in it. Fairly poor efforts: Georgia - takes far too long to get going, one of those could have been great but it isn't numbers. Czech Republic - let themselves down this year imo after Joszef's great number in 2018. This year's song is like an average early 1980s pop number that would have scraped the top 20 then. Not now, time has passed for that frivolity. Best of the rest: Belgium - understated solo, guess it needs a build, a proper key change or a twist at the end to make it stand out. Greece - pretty good, doesn't take too long to build, very similar to the Cyprus entry, but Greece edges it on the song quality stakes. Serbia - it's a bit of a shame really. I mean this should have everything - at one point I thought her uterus was going to fall out with the effort. But the song's a bit meh, and actually goes into English a wee tiny bit. Commitment deffo there. It will do well though. Hungary - this is an excellent choon, and beats Georgia in the man bun stakes. Bloke and his guitar singing a song with meaning. Just fell short of my personal top 3. My top 3 from this heat: 3. Montenegro - I wasn't expecting this. Got that local ethnic sound thrown into a pretty decent pop song. The kind of song I like a lot. Simple, melodic, shows off the country well. (Unlike their football supporters, same the world over, eh?). 2. Estonia - Instantly hated this and then....changed my mind. Showing Royaume-Uni how to properly sing about Storms. Again, simple message, grand voice on the bloke, hoping it's a shoo-in for the final. 1. Australia - the staging, the song, the performance. It's never going to be everyone's cup of shrimp, but it has the right level of quirkiness, difference and imagination. Blew every single other performer in this semi out of the water. Possible winner. Back soon for the second semi later.
