    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    Small world. I've seen her name at the bargain book kiosk at my local grocery store, and thought "wasn't she one of those past DDP cancer writers"! Probably me thinking of Sophie Sabbage or Sonia Kinsella (though the latter wasn't an author).

    Eva Marie Saint

    I remember at one of those free book dumps in middle school George Burns's autobiography was there and I took it and read it because I was just getting really into centenarians. Definitely one of my Sulu-iest sentences ever. Weird you'd find George Burns's autobiography there in hindsight!

    Now that the weather's finally ticking up I'm feeling less lazy again

    Cricket Thread. Only Mad Dogs And Englishmen

    Picked in the DDP for the first and only time in 2021.

    Derby Dead Pool 2024

    Finally corralled up the update, just making sure no recent LotL/LotM names slipped through the cracks?

    What Are We Killing & Saving Next?

    I think it helps a lot that the double sides are so long ago, that it kind of sorts itself out. Can’t Help Falling In Love justly endures and Rock-A-Hula Baby is justly forgotten, so we all just agreed to vote based off the former. If Rock-A-Hula Baby was equally culturally enduring while not being very good then it might've been more of a dilemma.

    I've been playing it for years

    World's Oldest

    George Schappell was trans, Lori wasn't, and Spade ran a trans theme team that year.

    Thoughts On The 2024 List

    2022 looked like it was set to be 2011 bad when we were sitting on four hits for almost all summer. Then there were ten hits condensed into a little over four months. Plenty can happen with much of the year to go.

    Dead Pop Stars

    One of my deadpooling mascots in recent years. 50s New Orleans R&B was a treasure trove for WTF they didn't die in 1995 picks not too long ago, like Lloyd Price and Huey Piano Smith. But now they're all dead.

    Hartlepool Deadlypool 2024

    Kurt Hamrin, Swedish football great and last survivor of the 1958 World Cup final, died way back in early February but his HPDP status escaped me. Famous6Eva is duly off the mark with 42 points (30 base + 12 bonus). Now into March. Canadian jazz pioneer Eleanor Collins swan songs a classy duet. The two who head north on the scoreboard are GuyFromFuture by 45 points and Torva Messor by 35 points. Despite his popularity in the DDP, RTE journalist Charlie Bird was surprisingly a unique hereabouts. A Bird in the hand is worth 49 points (35 base + 14 bonus) for msc. Charlie's son Philippe de Gaulle was another unique, this time for Imelda with 21 points (15 base + 6 bonus). Astronaut Thomas P. Stafford was in declining health in recent months and so was always likely to rocket onto a HPDP team or two. MariNisia gets 49 points closer to the stars (35 base + 14 bonus), while Perhaps launches his first sub with 25 points. Roger Ebert once stated "no movie featuring either Harry Dean Stanton or M. Emmet Walsh in a supporting role can be altogether bad." Does that rule also apply to deadpool teams? Thatcher says yes, consigning Walsh to a supporting role on the subs bench which the craggy thesp did with typical aplomb, delivering 50 points and marking the first team where both subs have died. The world's oldest man, that eternal deadpooling staple food, delivers once again. Venezuelan Juan Vicente Perez was a unique for BuffaloPhil worth 42 points (30 base + 12 bonus). Have to admit, when I saw the news Lynne Reid Banks died, I thought for a minute "wasn't she the one who died two years ago?". My mind had fused her and Margaret Stuart Barry into one, children's authors of similar ages who were frequently picked by YorkshireBanker. While Barry died off radar, there no such worries for Banks, and Banker can take his banking on Banks to the bank with a haul of 70 points (50 base + 20 bonus). The March scoreboard sees a swap in leads, with Thomas Stafford allowing Perhaps to surpass Banana. 1. Perhaps 190.19 2. Banana 173 3. MariNisia 151 4. Torva Messor 150.19 5. Thatcher 130.19 6.

    Earthquakes, Tsunamis, Hurricanes, Mudslides

    I felt it in NJ. Second earthquake I felt in my life, first was 2011. Earthquakes are so extremely rare in NJ that both times were just a minute of mild shaking yet I felt like the world was going to end. Today it took me about an hour for my nerves to fully settle.

    I'm pretty sure he also gets high on Hitler's birthday
