  1. The Dead of 2018

    The Guardian is a fairly stupid name I mean, has anyone posting here ever found The Guardian protecting them from anything?
  2. Olympic Deaths/Dead Medallists

    Indeed and I'd doubtless have got spammed if I'd started a "random nonentities risking life via athletic endeavour thread" Speaking of which - anyone know how Hilary Lister is doing these days?
  3. End Times - The Rapture

    Did anyone point out they got the PM's name wrong as well?
  4. The 5th Death of 2018

    Inspired by the news stories today Bush Sr. Fair tonnage of the popular vote going his way at the moment - might be the first election he's won in 30 years

    Madchen Amick, Twin Peaks - very much alive and in-fried (age 47) Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/M├Ądchen_Amick#Personal_life
  7. Fort William Football Club

    They likely won't go out - they'll probably re-group around much lower ambitions and income (which is what most failed footy teams - Accrington, Maidstone, Hereford, Chester, Workington, Aldershot, Newport County - all do). So the trauma for us is doubled; 1 - we won't easily find their results on the BBC or in the papers/ 2 - They might go local and start winning (a fate that befell the reliably shite East Stirlingshire when they were finally expelled from the lowest national tier in Scotland).
  8. Next Music Shock Death!

    There's a decent looking Beck documentary on BBC 4 this Friday which I thought I'd look in on. Not aware his drink/drug issues were up there with the other Yardbirds' lead guitarists. I would've posted that on the Deadio Times site but it's been populated with discussions of television types.

    National Enquirer rant coming up The whole Roswell UFO crash bollocks wouldn't have happened to the same degree without them. In these days of massive selling books on the subject etc. etc. people forget a couple of things. Firstly, that there were loads of UFO books written from the early 1950s to late 70s within which Roswell barely figures. Secondly, that the revival of the case started when the National Enquirer dug out a copy of the Roswell Daily News which reported the recovery of a crashed flying saucer (based on an army air force press release which was rapidly retracted). After which the first best-selling book was written, loads of witnesses came forward claiming first hand involvement in recovery of a UFO or at least a presence on the crash site and it all got really silly (to the point that most of the spectacular eye-witnesses have now had their claims shredded and the obvious Roswell movie to make would be one in the style of Mel Brooks). Oh aye, and...the compelling evidence all points in one direction; suggesting the only thing recovered was a secret balloon assembly used for spying purposes and definitely nowt to do with ET (and the flying saucer press release was an attempt to cover this up that caused more problems than it solved).
  10. What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Can't say I am - though The Macc Lads are well known to me. Oddly, this is a little unfortunate timing - I just recorded a show (definitely NOT a Strange Fruit show) as a one off for Gonzo which is wall to wall with stuff we couldn't play on normal radio. Mr Shit would have been ideal for it.
  11. What Are You Listening To Right Now?

    Strange Fruit #255 - wall to wall with amazing and generally unknown sounds. Beats me why the world doesn't mad for this stuff; http://www.gonzomultimedia.co.uk/gonzo_web_radio.html

    If you wanted a passable odds wager on America's first female president Michelle might be worth a punt
  13. 25. George Bush Senior

    Obama sat next to Melania and got a natural looking smile out of her - not something she appears capable of producing when her husband is nearby. I'll bet that picture is driving Trump wild.
  14. Shirley Bassey

    Clean living, with God on his side and never rumoured to be other than straight (sexually). He may well see out all his contemporaries in the music business.
  15. Shirley Bassey

    Man, Mike D'Abo doesn't look that healthy himself 74 and obitable - just sayin'
