  1. Since there’s a what you’re reading thread and a what have you been watching lately, I’ve decided to start a thread focusing on music you’re currently listening to. Of course, if there’s a thread that exists on this that I don’t know about, a mod can merge them together. Anyways, I am listening to Berlin by Lou Reed for the very first time, and so far, I’m enjoying the album.

    I don’t know, maybe you’ll find them in the same place as the negative points for basketball and baseball.

    Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Sadly I feel like it’s likely her last battle with it, as much as I want her to survive. That’ll be the Supreme Court completely fucked for decades then...
  5. The first debate in the democratic primary is only a few weeks away, and there are very few potential candidates that could announce at this point, so I figured that now would be the time to start a poll for the primaries. Trump is obviously going to smash Bill Weld and anybody else who announces a challenge to Trump in the primary, but the democratic primary will be quite interesting with so many people in the race. Anyways, let’s start with a highlight of someone who isn’t likely to win.

    Cuts the 12 day gap in half now, hehe
  7. Jay Inslee suspends his campaign. A little surprising since he recently crossed the donor threshold, but never really gained traction in the polls.

    Believe you were in 21st after Blanco died. You’re in 16th place now. Congrats

    Genuinely surprised that you never heard of Harry Reid since he was the senate majority leader from 2007 to 2015!

    Also, you’re far from the first team to have the most hits and not be in the lead. As an example, here’s the results from the top 5 in 2017 by hits. 1. 20 2. 18 3. 16 4. 17 5. 23 If you had a look at the 5th place team, 12 out of his 23 hits were over 80. Going the old person route isn’t going to work. @Sir Creep, msc thought you’d be really good at Alt Obits because of your eclectic picking of people in Alt Obits, and apart from Vinny Vella and a few of your rejected names you appeared to have fallen into two camps of picks: canon names (which are fine as most contenders picked them), and older people. It’s the latter that’s holding you back, and had you replaced them with, say, Fred Rister (who’s on your DDP team) or some of your more obscure eclectic names that get through, I promise you that you’d be doing much better in this dead pool.

    Dude, here’s a solution: don’t pick old people. We’re not leading cause we’re frauds, we’re leading cause we actually read the fucking rules. A 90 year old is two points. A 60 year old is 11 points. Maybe that’ll explain why you’re not winning despite having the most hits.

    I thought he was an obit risk when I removed him from the shortlist for the DDP, though I thought he’d last longer after I found out it was kidney cancer after the New Years, and it seemed like he quit treatment for it being to debilitating rather than being near the end of his life!

    A shake up just occurred in Alt Obits. I had Fred Rister, and I’m now apparently in the lead in Alt Obits, though I may still very well lose if no one else dies and Toffa stays the youngest hit of the year...

    Tbf, a lot of hard rock is blues inspired anyways, though I get your point.

    You know, it feels weird that for the second year in a row I’m part of the first group of teams to break 100 points (last year I broke 100 points alongside Buckets of Blood when Matt Cappotelli died). Yet somehow, it happened again.

    A whopping 23 teams picked Blanco in Alt Obits!

    90% sure it’s fake, considering it’s the same person who put his death with the source of the fake news generator earlier today.

    Don’t think it’s really a surprise by anyone, but I had Kathleen Blanco on my list. She was also a carry over for me from 2018.

    I'm surprised that a game around the 1940s hasn't come into fruition, especially since there's a game around the 50's! I figured since baby boomers are starting to decline, this pool should be started. The rules are simple, pick 40 people from the 1940's on your team. If they die and receive a DDP eligible obit, then you get a hit. If they don't obit within three months, you replace them with another person. The first person with all 40 people dead and have a QO wins. After the first 15 names, coming up with the rest was actually quite difficult for me, so here goes nothing: Kathleen Blanco Pat Bowlen Eric Clapton David Crosby Tim Curry Gerard Depardieu Oliver Dragojevic Donald Fagen Aretha Franklin Superstar Billy Graham Jimmy Greaves Luke Halpin Stephen Hawking Cynthia Heimel NQO Bill Heine Mazie Hirono Tony Iommi Mick Jagger Terry Jones Jose Jose Tessa Jowell Peter Lorimer Stan Mikita Joni Mitchell Olivia Newton-John Jalal Mansur Nuriddin Ozzy Osbourne Al Pacino Jimmy Page Anna Pavord Martin Peters Iggy Pop Keith Richards Freddie Starr Nobby Stiles Bernard Tapie Christopher Walken Mike Willesee Ronnie Wood Celeste Yarnall Bobby Zarin

    I can’t find anything saying that he’s dead.
