    I've had to pull out of speaking engagements on the day before because of utterly KOing migraine attacks. Which are not the early signs of stage IV brain cancer.

    Wait a second, it's that time of year already? Man, time does fly by fast. So here we are, another year of the annual Advent Avalanche, with the following objective and rules: 25 entrants (24 quickest off the mark plus your host Joey Russ). Competition opens on 1 December with the aim of getting a winner by Christmas Day. And those Rules in Full: 1 - The object of the AVALDP is to WIN. 2 - To enter the AVALDP a contestant must have: A candidate not selected by another other entrant. A candidate in this context means a living person aged 18 or over not being executed within that month who remains alive at midnight on November 30th and is considered likely to cease living soon after and also be capable of gaining a qualifying obit see rule 9 below upon death. 3 - Entries open at 7:00am EST (that's 12:00 PM GMT for the brits) on 30th November and close at midnight (GMT) on 30 November. Entry can only be made by posting the name of a candidate on the AVALDP thread on the Deathlist. 4 The competition is deemed to be open at 00-01 GMT hrs on 1 December 2021. 5 Competition ceases on the death of the first nominated pick on the list of candidates and the winner is the dead pooler who has selected said candidate. 6 Entry is limited to 25 players (24 who are obliged to post entries on the AvalancheDP thread and Joey Russ, who reserves a right of entry as the master of ceremonies for this endeavor). Presumably the artistic intent is obvious but in case you missed it the idea is to get 25 players to compete for a death within 25 days thereby giving us a victory by Christmas Day at the latest. If you're snoozin you're losing. 6a Because he has forced his own entry Joey Russ guarantees to respect the first 24 qualifying picks and only enter a candidate unselected by the others. Thereby ensuring the really hot selections go to others. 7 - In the event that two players select the same candidate the allocation of the pick will go to the player who first posted an entry for that candidate even if the entry times are within the same minute. 8 In the event that two players tie for victory on the basis of picks expiring on the same day all efforts will be made to ascertain a winner on the basis of the actual time of death. For these purposes local time of death will be translated to GMT if required. 9 - An "obit" in the context of the AVALDP is any news report in English from a reliable source. Such sources include - but are not limited to - UK national press, UK national broadcast organizations, foreign press and broadcast organizations with an English language thread to their communication, trade press in English, local news organizations reporting in English and coverage in specialist online sites, such as those monitoring the well-being of super-centenarians. Where dispute arises over the qualifying nature of a news source for obit purposes Joey Russ's decision is final. But he wants fast and furious competition and is generally very amenable to low hanging dead pool fruit of all varieties. 10 The Raymond Hewlett Memorial Award applies to the AVALDP. In honor of everybody's favourite Maddie-implicated paedo scum a candidate widely believed to be alive when the winner is declared and subsequently proven to have died previously will be awarded victory in the event that a AVALDP qualifying obit subsequently appears for said candidate. In the event that a AVALDP qualifying obit for the candidate is subsequently proven to have existed prior to commencement of the AVALDP all points will be voided. RHME points are only available during competition and in the event that a winner has been declared before discovery of a qualifying RHME candidate no revision of the final result will occur. Similarly, if some lucky candidate is awarded RHME victory and this victory once declared is proven to be spurious by late discovery of a qualifying obit; the lucky winner will be allowed to keep his/her lucky win. 10a To ensure smooth operation of rule 10 the period for discovery of result altering obits is deemed to be 48 hours plus the remainder of the calendar day in which victory is first claimed. In other words two days and a part of another day. 11 - If an obited death occurs during play of the AVALDP and is missed despite Joey Russ's best efforts to stay in touch and/or the spirited efforts of AVALDP participants and said death is missed in totting up points, after which a winner is declared, then this death will not count for competition purposes. The same is true in the case of a known death gathering a late obit and therefore allowing some other competitor to be declared a winner. All disputes relating to rule 11 will be resolved by the astute judgement of Joey Russ and there is no appeals procedure (though all sides of opinion are warmly invited to liven up the AVALDP thread by venting their fury). 12 - In the event that Deathlist editing options or other online trickery is discovered to have been employed in the editing of entries, those duly fingered for such cheating will be removed from the AVALDP and banned for life from subsequent entry into AVALDPs. 13 In the unlikely event that a pick selected on 30 November fails to mark the start line the entrant selecting said pick will still be deemed to have entered the competition and will have until midnight 1 December to select a new pick (unselected by other entrants). Should the entrant fail to do so no other entrant will be allowed in as a replacement. AND FINALLY... On completion of AVALDP activities the thread will get lively for a short while as losing contestants and spectators offer well-deserved congratulations to the skillful and highly talented new champion, after which time it is expected that the cooling corpse of the thread will be allowed to gently sink into oblivion. Now you know the rules, here is the list of competitors and their choice of candidates: theoldlady - Jerry Lee Lewis Sean - Frank Field Death Impends - Gary Burgess Bibliogryphon - Anthony Sher YoungWilz - Liza Minelli Gcreptile - Kaikala Satyanarayana Captain Chorizo - Susie Steiner The Daredevil - Bob Dole msc - Khaleda Zia Toast - Jean Marsh Book - Vinod Dua Lafauchuse - Nanda Prusty Ulitzer95 - Sidney Cooke John Key - Henry Kissinger Marinisia - Kat Bjelland Rover and Out - Jimmy Carter YorkshireBanker - Phyllis Dalton The Old Crem - George Alagiah Drol - Rowshan Ershad Thatcher - Bernadette Chirac ThereWillBeDeaths7 - Leslie Phillips Grim Up North - Francoise Hardy Chilean Way - Lucia Hiriart arghton - Luis Echeverría Joey Russ - Gavin Robertson Let's look at the past and current winners of this dead pool now 2016 - Death Impends 2017 - Sean 2018 - Banana 2019 - gcreptile 2020 - Spade_Cooley  Good luck everyone.

    First up, thanks to Joey for running this for the years I was busy with another popular deadpool. Apparently its the 8th November already, so time to set in motion another Crowdsourced Deathlist. The 2021 version looks set to finish ahead of the official Deathlist (without the use of Roberta McCain). However while it started well, the 2021 list fell to sleep during the Summer months. Will the 2022 edition be able to top our current list? We will see, but for the time being let's go over the rules, shall we? THE RULES Rules 1. Please send a list of celebrities you wish to vote for to msc, during the time period of 8th November to the 31st December 2021. The list must have a minimum of 12 names on it, and a maximum of 50. Yes, this means we are open now, as I'll just forget to officially open it otherwise. For more evidence, note I intended to open this on the same day as the Deathrace thread... Please send them by either PM or the Shadow List thread, not by email, semaphore, Morse code, Deathlist live chat, animated corpses, text messages, or any other means of communication you can think of. And you may only submit via 1 of those two methods above, NOT BOTH METHODS! 2. Your 1st choice will gain 50 points, 2nd 49, etc etc to 50th which will gain 1 point. This is true even if you only send in 12 names, or 13 names, or 49 names. 3. When the deadline passes, all of the points that an individual celebrity gain will be added together, and the top fifty celebrities with the most points overall will go on the Utterly Unofficial Forum List. 4. Feel free to add substitutes at the bottom of the list, which will only be counted if one of your fifty die before January 1st 2022. If for example your number one pick is such a smart one they die before January 1st, then I will give 50 points to your 2nd pick, and so on until 1 point is given to the first substitute. 5. Do try to make the picks as "Deathlisty" as possible. More Jean Claude, less Miguel Van Damme, if you know what I mean. Someone likely to score an obit with one of the major English language news outlets. 6. The deadline for sending in entries is 31st December 2021 at 9 pm GMT. That's 4pm New York Time (31st December) and 8am (1st Jan) Melbourne time to help out non-Brits. This earlier dead line is so there's enough time to complete the list before the new year as well as enjoying some extra time off as well. I am keeping Joey's earlier cut off time for simplicity. 7. This is essentially a forum game without a winner. It does however put the long held notion by some that the combined minds of the forum know better than the Committee to the test. 8. Who picked whom will remain anonymous. Unless the person announces it of course. 9. The paranoid probably shouldn't send in their DDP unique hopefuls. Whilst I do not intend to steal them away, it would make no sense: if the person then showed up on the list, their chances of being unique would be very slim indeed! 9b. If you do wish to send your DDP unique hopefuls, I won't complain! 10. To keep to the Deathlist spirit, only the top 25 ranked celebrites from the current list of Crowdsourced Deathlist 2021 survivors will be used: Bob Dole, Jimmy Carter, Pope Benedict XVI, Leslie Philips, Tom Parker, Mikhail Gorbachev, James Whale, Tom Smith, Glynis Johns, Linda Nolan, Betty White, Henry Kissinger, Bob Barker, Yoko Ono, Joanne Woodward, Shannon Doherty, Clarissa Eden, Olivia Newton-John, Rosalyn Carter, David Gulpilil, Sidney Poitier, Jean Louis Trintignant, Harry Belafonte, George Alagiah, Prunella Scales, Barbara Walters, Monica Vitti, June Spencer, Angela Lansbury, Queen Elizabeth II, Bill Turnbull, Bob Newhart, Eva Marie Saint, Noam Chomsky, Willie Nelson, Imelda Marcos. As usual, this is something for me to worry about, not you. 10a) Our actual collated list will stick to the "25 from the previous year" rule. 10b) As a result, if our top fifty, after all votes have been counted, has more than twenty-five of the 2021 survivors (named for ease in Rule 10), then the lowest ranked excess survivors will be axed from the list in favour of The Fifty-First ranked celebrity and so on... 10c) Since we don't know if that'll be an issue until I actually do the counting, voters don't need to worry about limiting their personal lists to 25 survivors. It'd be nice if they did, but that's life. 11) Please pick living people. Folk do die before 1st January, but there were a few cases of people dead for a number of years chosen last time. Please do not pick animals, or ISIS prisoners, or kids, or any of the usual no go areas. 12) The Deathray Rule. If Deathers is reading this, he is more than welcome to find some way to get his usual 50 points for that bloody weatherman in! Anyhow, enjoy. Or not. "I'm one of the four living men to have appeared on every Crowdsourced list to date, you know!"

    Damn!Need a new anecdote.. John Tylers grandson Harrison Ruffin Tyler seems the obvious replacement for the how the hell are they still alive person of note. Ben Ferencz being a prosecutor at Nuremberg and still drawing breath seems incredible.Then there is Ray Anthony the last member of Glenn Millers orchestra.

    No, it's because it's the same person who keeps going on and on and on and on about it.

    I think it might be worth remembering how long it was between the Duke of Edinburgh having prolonged hospital stays and not appearing at events to his eventual demise.

    https://ruthlesspodcast.com/episodes/salute-to-veterans-with-bob-dole-vJvDj_qQ Talked on a republican podcast recently, episode released today. Before the interview one of the podcast boys says that "there's an oxygen machine running the entire time this interview is rolling" and says that they had to cut and redo parts of it but Dole insisted on participating in it. Really impressive that he's made it this far. If he's still alive on the 18th of November, it'll be 9 months since his diagnosis. Seems like half of the people diagnosed with it don't make it that far and he's a 98-year old man with a very impressive health history and has looked like a corpse for years... Dole surviving to 2022 still seems unrealistic to me, however if he does, he deserves the first spot.

    No, by Old Crem standards, he has terminal brain cancer (as any mistake is surely cancer) and has 20 minutes to live. It's always cancer with The Old Crem.

    Hate Bonfire Night. Terrible night for people everywhere who have pets. My pet lizard has always struggled with it and almost had a heart attack last year with the stress. Thankfully this year I have medication for it. Just gave it its first sedative and now its a calmer calmer calmer chameleon.
