    I asked ChatbotGPT for some headlines, and it came up with this. They're fucking terrible: Peanut Farmer Finally Kicks the Bucket: Jimmy Carter OK with It Former President Carter's Last Campaign: The One-Way Ticket to the Afterlife The Final Chapter: Jimmy Carter Checks Out and Smiles No More Peanut Butter Dreams: Jimmy Carter Passes Away Heaven Gets a New Habitat as Jimmy Carter Leaves the Earth The Peanut Gallery Goes Silent: Jimmy Carter's Life Comes to a Close Jimmy Carter Bids Farewell to the White House and Hello to the Pearly Gates Former President Peanut Goes to the Great Beyond Jimmy Carter Leaves Us in Good Hands (or Should We Say Wings) President Carter Leaves a Legacy, and a Hearty Appetite for Eternal Peace

    Yeah, despite Ulitzer having what I and many others thought to be rather pungent opinions on certain things, there was no utter derangement like this fucking shit. It’s no coincidence that the three you mention are all Trump supporters.

    Oh my, it is done... my database is updated. Now I can enjoy the rest of the year... ..let's see if I can get the full update. Thank you for your notices above. Let's start with them: Just Fontaine scores twice here (not 13 times...). Betty Boothroyd was quite the popular hit. Gordon Pinsent, (who I always confused with an old criminal) was a hit for Torva Messor and GuyFromFuture. Nobody shares the hit of Augie Nieto with Wormfarmer - an extreme obit gamble that paid off. SalmonMousse scores massively with Slim Borgudd, Simone Edwards and Mark Pilgrim, who barely got a BBC obit, but he DID get it. Amazingly, these three names are all unique.. could this finally be SalmonMousse's year? Gooseberry Crumble only gets two unique hits, Raquel Welch and Bernard Ingham. His third hit, Stella Stevens, is shared, with Sean, for example. Next, Tim Lobinger. I guess I was too dismissive of this german name and his obit chances, but quite a few of you were rewarded for the risk. Huey "Piano" Smith was a unique hit for Death Impends. Finally, the Deathlist hits of Burt Bacharach and Pervez Musharraf also score plentifully here. Next, I noticed some 2022 deaths that I replaced in my database. I am probably not going to adjust the masterlist for a while, if at all... But rest assured, it's all in my game file. JoeMoneypenny missed that a japanese businessman (I already forgot the name) already died in 2022. Satoru Sayama gets in as a replacement. Somebody (Diego?) also picked japanese dance Yuriko, but that person also died in 2022. Norman Lear is the sub. We also have a couple of names waiting for their obits, Steve Woodmore and Juan Velarde Fuentes, as far as I can tell. The chances are probably slim... Next up, the hits of relatively old people not yet announced here. Dick Cheney's accidental target, Harry Whittington was a unique hit for Summer in Transilvania. The former chairman of the Toyota corporation, Shoichido Toyoda was a unique hit for LadyFiona. Now, another triplet of unique hits, this time for Diego: Felix Sienra, Hsing Yun and ancient Serbian actress Branka Veselimovic are all for him alone. Well done! Aaand.. next ones, let's look at the yet unmentioned DDP hits: Christopher Fowler is a hit for three people, and Miroslav Blazevic is a hit for two people, Banana among them. Ricou Browning is the second unique hit in this update for Death Impends. Walter Mirisch is a unique hit for Daredevil.. You all really managed to pick them all! (except for Gary Rossington, I guess...) I wonder what this all adds up to... but I suspect, we have a repeat of last year with Banana and Salmon Mousse battling it out.

    Masum Babul was a three-time winner of the Bangladesh National Film Award for Best Choreography. It might be more than three actually, as nobody's updated the Wikipedia page for the Bangladesh National Film Award for Best Choreography since 2018.

    The death of Hollywood star Tom has confirmed what anyone would have suspected reading these forums: we're all a bunch of Size queens. There was no saving Sergeant Horvath this time out, and there were far too many hits to report them all. gcreptile goes 10 points up, Perhaps and Grim Up North, as well as TQR and MariNisia, all captained their way to a 6-6, and there has to be some congratulations to deadsox and Gooseberry Crumble for somehow keeping their clash at 0-0.

    Hooray, we got a winner from this KoS round: It's German Fräulin Wunder Nena! Congratulations! Who would have thought that??? I was surprised that she did that well in her own KoS (1984/85), but never guessed her to be the winner of the whole thing! Not bad! Maybe it's because the song is somehow overplayed in Germany, no Party without “99 Luftballons”. While Nena is called a one-hit-wonder internationally, she is still very successful in Germany as a solo artist (in her hey-days Nena was a whole band, up from the early 90s Nena is a solo artist). Her/Their discography shows 2 No.1 singles, further 13 Top 10-hits, 2 No. albums, further 8 top 10-albums. With 25 million records sold worldwide, she is one of the most successful musicians in the history of German pop music. And now she can also book winning the 80s UK No.1 hits KoS as a success! Well done! That has to be a highlight of her career! And here's our top 25 most popular UK No.1 hits of the 80's: 01. Nena – 99 red balloons 02. David Bowie – Ashes to Ashes (Youth in Asia) 03. Soft Cell – Tainted Love (ladyfiona) 04. Blondie – Atomic (RIP Wee Jum) 05. Kraftwerk – The Model / Computer Love (Book) 06. George Michael – Careless Whisper (CaptainChorizo) 07. Pet Shop Boys – It´s a sin (Imelda) 08. Madonna – Into the groove (Drewsky1211) 09. Men at Work – Down Under (Drewsky1211) 10. Madonna – Like a prayer (ladyfiona) 11. The Specials – Ghost Town (Book) 12. Madness – House of fun (Joey Russ) 13. a-ha – The sun always shines on TV (En Passant) 14. Communards & Sarah Jane Morris – Don´t leave me this way (Joey Russ) 15. Bee Gees – You win again (Drewsky1211) 16. Human League – Don´t you want me (Paul Bearer) 17. Eurythmics – There must be an angel (playing with my heart) (Youth in Asia) 18. Frankie goes to Hollywood – Two Tribes (Drewsky1211) 19. Belinda Carlisle – Heaven is a place on earth (En Passant) 20.

    The last White Rose is faded... and brings the D-A-CH-List to a total of 6 so far!

    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R), 81, hospitalized for a fall. History of poor health, polio survivor since childhood; previous refusal to comment on bruised hands and purple face in 2020. Assuming he survives this, but we all know how one fall is all it takes to send someone down a spiral — especially after losing mobility. Definitely a big name to keep an eye on, has been in the Senate since 1985 and led the Senate Republicans since 2007. Was the single biggest pain in Obama's (and maybe Trump's) ass for 8 years.

    February a go. Up first is French racecar driver Jean-Pierre Jabouille, a unique for DeathByArsenic that brings them 28 points (20 base + 8 bonus). And then former Pakistani leader Pervez Musharraf. His leadership style all depended on his mood - at times oppressive despot, at times patriotic freedom fighter. Dialing towards the former for HPDP scoring purposes there. The winning trio are CaptainChorizo with 72 points (45 base + 27 bonus), DeathBecomesThem with 64 (40 base + 24 bonus), and drol with 24 (15 base + 9 bonus). The best that Burt Bachrach could do was one team. Lord, we don't need another mountain, but Murdoc gets a mountain's worth of 49 points (35 base + 14 bonus). Up next is a triple header in one day. Colin Dobson, a footballer with Sheffield Wednesday, was a trademark Gooseberry Crumble unique worth 21 points (15 base + 6 unique). Pole vaulter Tim Lobinger was an obit gamble around DDP parts, but with German QOs under the HPDP fold the only question for his pickers was when he would die. He died earlier than anticipate for both Reptile (30 points) and Banana (25 points), and additionally was the first sub hit for RadGuy (25 points). Unlike Lobinger, schlager singer Tony Marshall had no luck gaining any native press outside his native Germany, but that was enough for HPDP purposes. Reptile swiftly follows up with another "too early" hit to the tune of 35 points (25 base + 10 bonus), plus an extra 5 points for hitting a Daily Double. time was one of three wooden spoons last year, and as such resubmitted his 2022 team for this year without any modifications. He'll have to go back to the drawing board for at least one name next time, with badger-coiffured World of Sport host Dickie Davies ending the long dry spell. He brings a haul of 56 points (40 base + 16 bonus). Just one more name in this update. None other than Just Fontaine, the goalscoring juggernaut of 1958 World Cup yore. Fittingly, his picker's username also begins with just, and justonecornetto scores 49 points (35 base + 14 bonus). Latest scoreboard is below. CaptainChorizo leaps to third on the back of Musharraf, while the top two remain unchanged but with a much closer .05-point margin thanks to justonecornetto gaining more mileage out of Fontaine than Banana did out of Lobinger. 1.

    No ! It is putting people off because it is not a 90s song and it has already been in this contest. It is obscuring the sad but beautiful These Are The Days Of Our Lives, which was Freddie's moving farewell.

    Detective novelist Christopher Fowler, best known for the Bryant & May series of books, has been taken off the case aged 69. He was diagnosed with cancer on the exact same day COVID lockdowns began in the UK in 2020, which probably wasn't a great aid to his long-term wellbeing. gcreptile had obvious been keeping a file on the crime writer and goes 4 points up in their clash with Arghton.
