    Death List Convention

    Well Bruges was lovely. A bit expensive on the whole but very beautiful and only a bit too full of tourists in one or two places. Took me an hour or two to stop repeating the mantra "this place is a complete feckin' shithole", but after that I had quite a lot of fun with my festival friends. Sadly no Deathlisters were there; Hein may have come if I'd stayed a day longer but it wasn't possible

    So folks, sorry to be so unpredictable. I've decided not to drive to the UK. There's a festival on in Bruges I'm quite interested in so I'm driving there tomorrow morning. I'll stay for two, possibly three nights, though hotels seem to be pretty pricey. If anyone wants to come by for a Grimbergen or three then please PM me. I'm now going to prepare for my trip by watching the film.

    Don't worry about it; he loves you. £200 for the ferry? The ones I'm loooking at cost between €80 and €130 return with a car.

    So Tu and Wed, in the middle of the week. And getting to Calais... It's possible, but not quite what I have in mind. I need some persuasion. regards, Hein I'll pick you up in Antwerp. I understand Wednesday/Thursday might suit Six better.

    Six says no to Bruges. For me if I were planning to drive that way, It wouldn't be much further, and still cheaper than flying, if I went on to Calais, got on a ferry to Dover and we met somewhere on or near the South coast. Hein?

    Well August is here and my diary has surreptitiously filled itself up with the exception of next week. Anyone up for a pint, anywhere, between now and next Friday?

    The Dead Of 2013

    I met him once. I used to play in concerts in the old Krupp villa, Villa Hügel to which he occasionally came. That's a brilliant place where as a privileged person I was able to sit behind Krupp's enormous desk and imagine him receiving Hitler there. I often went up the huge staircase with one arm behind my back as I imagine the Führer must have done (a posture Hitler copied from Kaiser Wilhelm who did it because he had a withered arm). Krupp didn't like Hitler; he found him a bit too common. The story of the Krupp family is really interesting. The reason why Berthold Beitz took over the firm is because the actual heir of the Krupp family, pouf-célèbre Arndt_von_Bohlen_und_Halbach was completely useless and forewent his inheritance for the good of everyone. Very interesting chap though and well worth reading up on.

    Barbara Windsor

    Well I have just watched Who Do You Think You Are with Barbara Windsor and would like to pronounce her as being in the Rudest of Good Health. I had to google her and was a bit distraught not to say distressed to learn that she is over 70. She is definitely Well Fit and I hereby predict that she will do for a good few years yet. Thus Spake Tuber Mirum.

    Does it absolutely have to be a weekend?

    The last weekend in September is fine for me too. That's not to say something won't come up.

    Hm. The only good date in August for me is the first weekend. When LG can't be there Another possibility might be the 31.08/01.09 or the weekend after that (which has the advantage (?) of avoiding the Edinburgh Festival). Don't make it dependent on me though.

    The Hartlepool Deadlypool

    I decided just to look in to see why nobody had asked me if I believe Thatcher was guilty of Crimes Against Humanity. But I'm pleased to see that Rotten Ali has made the correct assumption. The Hartlepool Deadlypool is clearly in Good Hands.

    Hooray! 40 years too late mind. http://www.isthatcherdeadyet.co.uk/

    No, but look at this: 2:45. Doesn't that look like Morris Dancing to you?
  18. Orangejuice doesn't look right but we all say it fast. Have you ever thought oatmeal should just be oats? Most never hear oat. Post fades out. Reading your post made me wonder about the word fucktard. Not the whether its one or two words, just fucktard............. Anyway, whoever you are, stop using the log in for BS, stop impersonating him and untie him and bring him up from the basement, NOW! He is coherent from time to time That's not coherent. It's bollocks. Oats and oatmeal are two different things. Oatmeal is made of oats and could consequently be called oats but it isn't the same thing. Bollocks it may be but at least you can follow what he said Barely. It isn't immediately apparent what is meant by "Most never hear oat". It does include the requisite subject, verb and object to qualify for being a sentence, but it's only just hovering around the pass mark as regards making sense. Admittedly that's a distinguished achievement by Banshees' standards.

  20. Writing apple pie as one compound word is probably an effect of the German influence in American English. I don't like it much. Logically orange juice should be one word. To distinguish juice made with oranges from juice which is merely orange in colour.
  21. Unsurprisingly, Mr Fowler has had something to say on the subject: -H.W. Fowler (Modern English Usage)
  22. Has anyone pointed out yet that "any more" is two words? I hate that. People who write "infact" and "aswell" and suchlike. Windsor does it quite a lot actually. "Alot" that's another one.

    I don't think Notapotato would consider 29 to be a tender age. 25 might be a different matter.

    Just noticed that the above extract from the bonus system is a bit unclear, since multiplying by 3 twice would give six anyway and it isn't clear if the six bonus for both is meant as additional. Since a bonus multiplied by 36 could give an enormous score I suggest changing the "Both of the above" bonus to x8 and awarding it instead of the two above thus still leaving everyone who hasn't picked George H W Bush in with a chance. Assuming Notapotato considers Bush to be a "recent" US president and to be guilty of crimes against humanity.

    Hugo Chavez

    I missed it too. I read the whole article and couldn't find any swearing at all.
