    King Charles III

    funny farm? what year is this?

    Joe Biden

    I agree, this one is alarming but none of the other examples posted in this thread are particularly IMO. A lot of it strikes me as confirmation bias. Biden making a joke about public spending is not evidence that his brain is about to explode.

    Joe Biden

    I think a good comparison is Paul McCartney. He’s the same age as Biden and nowadays his memory is a little fuzzy and his speaking voice is sorta slurred and imprecise. He repeats himself constantly. He still tours the world and plays long sets though, and there’s no reason to believe he won’t be here in five years time. Biden seems fairly similar - an average 80 year old - to me.

    Thanks for posting that Spade (just clocked your name!), I'm a 60s novelty freak but it's new to me.

    Joe Biden

    I don't think anyone was saying it was necessarily appropriate, just that it doesn't indicate mental decline.

    Joe Biden

    It's a light-hearted comment to draw attention to what he's doing. It's a real stretch to say it has anything to do with any cognitive decline.

    Death By Jazz

    Another confirmation from his record label. Sad news. He was a giant.

    The Welsh

    I don't think anyone's mentioned this man before - Cledwyn Jones, the last of the vocal trio Triawd y Coleg with Robin Williams (d. 2003) and Meredydd Evans (b. 1919, d. 2015) seems to be still knocking around. Atleast, he was in 2019. Triawd y Coleg became very famous in Wales through BBC Radio in the 1940s. Jones was born in 1923 and might obit in Welsh-language media - which probably isn't much use to most deadpools I suppose.

    12. Queen Elizabeth II

    If you're referring to this tweet, they link to a Daily Mail article from a few days ago that just mentions him being invited. Amazing if he did go but I doubt the user knows it.

    Ignore - beaten to it.

    12. Queen Elizabeth II

    Anybody else weirdly… disappointed? I am not a monarchist but I thought a lot about the Queen’s death before it happened like I’m sure we all did. I expected the death and the media/public reaction to it to feel really uncanny and absolutely huge. It has in fact been pretty boring from the start.

    Going for Cleo Laine as I did last month.

    British Character Actors

    Friday Night Dinner is bound to get him lots of press too. He was in the tenth anniversary documentary last year.

    The Welsh

    Aw shame. For some, she's infamous for a somewhat dismissive interview with David Bowie, but she was altogether a very good broadcaster.

    The 8th death of 2022

    Cleo Laine this time.
