    Mangosuthu Buthelezi's no longer a bench warmer. Please put Shane MacGowan on my substitutes roster, thank you.

    Death By Numbers 2023

    It took a few hours today, but a qualifying online obituary from The Independent, an allowed source for the Derby Dead Pool 2023 obituaries, for my unique Death By Numbers 2023 entry Peter C. Newman is published https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/ap-toronto-ontario-belleville-harpercollins-b2407580.html Peter C. Newman died 7 September 2023, aged 94. Birthdate is May 10, 1929

    ABC Deadpool VII: 2023-24 Season

    Thank you. I gnashed my teeth as I deliberately chose two supervocalic names aiming for that bonus, mused how I could have misparsed the bonus, and saw that "hit...all five vowels..." would have been more clear to me as "hits of five names [A,E,I,O,U]..." Hit is a verb, as used in the bonus description, but commonly it is also a singular noun on these forums.

    @Commtech Sio Bibble Thank you for efficiently crediting all the Michela Murgia entries so soon and updating the scoreboard. Another URL reporting Murgia's Morte https://www.corriere.it/cultura/23_agosto_10/morta-michela-murgia-1d404ff2-3487-11ee-aa95-d76d2964c992.shtml

    Internet Celebrities

    The British Columbia Courts have no online court record entries for custody. The only court entry for Angela Tian is classified motor traffic. A listing for Christopher Hope is unrelated to custody and has a principal unrelated to this. I suspect this is a hoax.

    Minimalists (and other classical composers/musicians)

    This composition was my introduction to Carl Davis. It is the theme to a 13-part documentary miniseries from around 1979-1980. I saw Carl Davis conduct live during my one visit to London at the Dominion Theatre, in 1989, an orchestra performing Chaplin's score for " City Lights." ( i don't care that msc and imelda don't acknowledge my Hollywood theme video. It was a real treat for this North American to see Carl Davis in concert, and hear Spike Milligan do vocal effects live, and yes I have the Hollywood miniseries episodes)

    I used the Countdown method for consonant to vowel ratio, and a combination of additional methods. Countdown would also be a good alternate title for this game.

    George Alagiah was my original #5 placement. Shannen Doherty now rises from the sub bench to #5. Centenarian John Allman Hemingway, Irish pilot for the RAF in WW2, now dodders onto the substitute bench.
