    2018 Report Card

    DL Cup 2018: Kept picking the same couple of people who I thought were on their last legs but weren't. Still managed the revenge win over DI, so not all bad. Narrowly defeated by DDT in Quarters. B- DDP: Heeflich Manoeuvre: Let down by picking Bill Crider as a joker. Should have known a QO was a virtual impossibility. Buggered it up from the off. Sir Ngatata Love not getting a QO was a little bit more of a surprise, but not vastly. D Heef's Politics XX: Pretty good effort all round. Top of the Theme Team League as things stand. 8 hits with a couple that I'm amazed are still with us. A BBC Heaven: 3/20 is okay, all 3 unique hits including two heroes from my formative years. Definitely more possible with such a broad theme, so probably a little disappointing. C Birthing Pool: Run your own pool, forget to enter a team. Didn't even reach the starting line. Pathetic. Grade U Gonna have to try adding up my other idea for a pool at some point. That'll be a blast.

    Guess The Song

    Pass the Dutchie by Musical Youth, under the assumption that the person dying may have desired some biological relief and this being a subtle way of asking. Or alternatively, I'm guessing.

    Can I hold on at the top of the Theme Team league? Plenty of potential in the 2nd placed team, but I don't think there's any hits left on mine.

    I see Murphy did get a QO in the end. https://www.theguardian.com/film/2018/dec/04/geoff-murphy-dies-aged-80

    The combination of Geoff Murphy and Bruno Lawrence made some quality films - Utu, Goodbye Pork Pie and of course The Quiet Earth.

    Geoff Murphy, Director of my favourite NZ film (The Quiet Earth) has died according to Radio NZ. Wonder if he’ll pick up a UK obit.

    Hooroo, Mate.

    Not soldiers, just Aussie or Kiwi celebrities who’d get a mention on the main news sources in either country ( list of sources tbc)

    Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    David Byrne was excellent. Really puts on a show, and even played some Talking Heads tunes. I've not seen backing singers have to work so hard. Not only singing at the right pitch and in time, but doing choreographed dance routines at the same time. Definitely worth the admission money.

    Seen Any Awful Films Lately

    The Keith Allan vehicle The Magnificent Eleven was absolutely diabolical. Watch it at your own peril.

    List of the lost addition: Sir Ngatata Love died 23rd October. I had him, but no QO.

    Hooroo, Mate.

    Cool. What's the best way to go about it. Anyone interested send me a list of 50 ANZAC celebs in some kind of order and I'll combine them together, resend the prioritised list together and we can debate any required adjustments? Sound reasonable?

    Hooroo, Mate.

    Roger Donaldson too. He's in his 70s. 72 I think. Perhaps more seen as a Kiwi, but he was born in Victoria I believe. Any Aussies keen on putting together a semi-official ANZAC list for 2019? I think I suggested such earlier in the year, but had already missed the boat for 2018.

    https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/102156124/golden-moment-cast-in-bronze-sir-john-walker-statue-unveiled-in-south-auckland That's back in March. Looks reasonably well with it to be honest. Still on Auckland Council as this confirms: https://www.aucklandcouncil.govt.nz/about-auckland-council/how-auckland-council-works/governing-body-wards-committees/wards/Pages/ward-councillors.aspx

    Sir Ngatata Love, convicted fraudster, passed away recently. He was on one of my teams. Unlikely for a QO, I suspect. https://www.stuff.co.nz/dominion-post/news/108026719/wellington-mori-leader-sir-ngatata-love-dies
