    A few years back Ultravox brought out a new album called Brilliant. What they put on the cover: What they should have put on the cover:
  2. The Next Piper At The Gates Of Heaven

    Lardy's best placed to answer that.
  3. The Next Piper At The Gates Of Heaven

    How do we know it's him? It could be anybody under that lot.
  4. The 16th death of 2017

    I must have missed Mark Eden dying.
  5. The Hare's Death Pool

    Love the idea of a surprise tortoise
  6. 21 fallers so far from my list. 25 looks possible, but (to quote one of our misses) you never can tell.

    "Gord Downie's family is hoping to organize a public event where fans can honour the late Tragically Hip singer. Downie's brother Mike says a "private family gathering" is being held today. He said a public memorial would have to be "something that Gord would like and appreciate, so we'll just have to figure that out." " I read that as something like a concert.

    Exactly - you added some information. You have nothing to apologise for.

    I think there is a big difference between posting news of a death, and making a comment relating to it. I also think that it's fine to post news of a death in any appropriate thread, provided it has not already been posted in the same thread. IMO the deployment of the Dunn/done meme is only justified in the latter situation. Otherwise you come across as a tiresome little smartarse.

    Stop it, Joey. People are entitled to comment on previous posts.
  11. Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    Meh. I really enjoyed the first two books of His Dark Materials, but the third one jumped the shark for me. Haven't read any other PP books. I liked the early Harry Potters, but then they became too bloated and derivative. Didn't like JKR's detective novel. Never read any JW.

    Philip Pullman is signing copies of his new book at Blackwell's in Oxford today. I did think of going along but the tickets went too quick. There are some videos of him talking about the book on the BBC site, so that will have to do for form study. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-41670890

    Booker Prize winning author not Deathlisty? I'd say she is. I've known of her for years, despite not having read any of her books, including the one you mention. Very recently I did read one - The House In Norham Gardens. I read it because it is set in Oxford, and I think we're all drawn to books about places we know. It was really disappointing though - nothing really happens, and apart from a fleeting visit to the Pitt Rivers Museum, there was not much sense of being in Oxford.
  14. Been To Any Good Gigs Lately?

    Just back from seeing The Pretenders. Cracking gig. Chrissie can still belt them out.

    Well done to you both, but I have been a grammar Nazi compelled to fix that pet hate of mine.
