  1. Death List Convention

    Not quite buckets but I do own some very large wine glasses! I have just had a reunion in Glasgow with some friends and neighbours from my childhood days to celebrate a milestone birthday of mine and was given what I can only describe as a 'massive fuck-off glass' to drink my gin from (bottle of gin included too) , even I was daunted by it's size. Count me in for 24th March :-)
  2. Death List Convention

    I could attend any weekend after February if that helps, would be good to see DL'rs again, mine's a pint of wine LFN :-). Tardy response from me I am sorry, work has really, really cut down my internet time. Gone are the days of drifting in and out of the DL while pretending to read office emails. I was in Edinburgh in June with 2 American friends and we went to a pub that made me think should we ever have a convention in Scotland this would be the place. http://www.frankensteinedinburgh.co.uk/ We just dropped in for something to eat and they really put on a show that none of us were expecting. I won't spoil it in case any of you are in the pub on a visit to Edinburgh, just remember to look up if you visit.
  3. Tom Petty

    Indeed that is a very good point! Also had a friend that saw Mr. Petty in Hyde Park, pretty amazing gig by all accounts and he was only a year or two younger than Jeff, I might have to rethink that one :-)
  4. Life In Prison

    Yes he got jailed a few years ago now, I think his last trial was one of the few where television cameras were allowed in to film - my memory serves me that the judge was filmed sentencing him, it's happened a few times now but Scotland isn't big on that kind of thing. Rumour has always been that his wife's body was put through a machine that cuts up trees for woodchips and what was came out was fed to pigs, a surefire way to dispose of a body I have heard. He doesn't have a long sentence though given todays standards of 25 - 30 years, 17 I think he got in 2012/13 and the time he was locked up before will come into account so he could well be out in about 10 years.
  5. Tom Petty

    I saw Mr. Lynne in concert at Wembley Stadium, London in June he was looking pretty fit to me and put on a brilliant concert. He's not a kick in the backside away from being 70 but I have seen much younger musicians that don't have the stamina he has, I won't be adding him to my list anytime soon. (Apologies for the rubbish photo!)
  6. Rick Parfitt

    That's a shame. I was lucky enough to see them many moons ago at Reading Festival, and again a couple of years later touring. I say 'lucky' because I probably wouldn't have gone to one of their gigs, but their festival set was so enjoyable that I didn't need persuading to see them again. I saw them many years ago too, I think it was 1986 when they played the SECC in Glasgow on their 'In the Army Now' tour. Then I saw them again in June 1990 at Celtic Park where they supported Rod Stewart. Incredible band, great fun. I will admit that I got bored at both gigs as perhaps I tired a bit early after 'Rocking all over the world' with them and maybe the songs sounded much the same as the gig went on. The 25 minute rendition of Johnny B. Goode as an encore in 1986 had me almost slitting my wrists through sheer repetition but that is what fans of The Quo love. Me, I have been listening again to Paper Plane this weekend and remembering actually how good they were. R.I.P. Rick and thanks for all the memories of lining up 'Quo Style' on the dance floors of rock clubs in Glasgow in my youth whenever The Quo was played. Happy times.
  7. Death List Convention

    I lived there for a couple of years too. I'm thinking probably May sometime as I need to fit in with the friends I'll be visiting. Hope the life changes are not unpleasant ones. 'Tis mine your suppliant now to be, Ah, let the band of love - be three!" 20 years ago I lived in Cologne, too. Now I am working there, so it should be possible for me to take part in the DL Convention. Can someone tell me a little bit more about the convention, please? How do you meet and where? When I arranged the Amsterdam meet and agreement was reached on when, all overseas visitors made their own travel and hotel arrangements. I proposed a place to meet by PM and arranged good weather. All I did next was go to meeting place, get something to drink and wait. The other DLers duly arrived. Ok, I prepared some things to do and see as well. I remember the restaurants... Me too especially the vegan steak. It was like eating rubber! The Amsterdam meet up was great, I have very happy memories of it. Sadly, from my point of view, I will be taking a rain check on this one Handrejka. Life is too busy, I am already booked up for a week in June with American friends flying in to Scotland culminating with a visit to London and Wembley to see Jeff Lynne's ELO. I have to organise my old Mum and my crippled dog around it too. Fun!
  8. Ask A Deathlister

    I want to work where you work Handrjeka. We have a new boss in place in my workplace, well not that new, 9 months now and that sort of open conversation would have him running for the hills. The open, frank and often irreverent and humorous discussions us employees had are in short supply now. I have always been able to chat about DL and deadpooling in general with my colleagues, not so with the new boss. Rest assured I am finding new ways to make him uncomfortable in general conversations. I expect my P45 soon.
  9. The B B C

    Tried and tried to edit it but it won't let me. I have logged in and out and come back after a couple of days but I think there is a problem, one of the many, from the last upgrade. An Admin might be able to sort it. I could capitalise the L's in the sub heading but not change the title.

    Sod it, first or surnames. Glad you have opened it up to first names .My contribution is the late, great Philip Lynott
  11. Docter Docter!

    That's awful OsP, I realised something of this nature had happened to you when you commented on my FB post about my young cousin being killed in a crash the other week but I had no idea it was this, very glad you are still with us. My best regards to you and Mrs OSP and I really hope you both make a good recovery soon.
  12. Deathlist On The Net

    There was nothing strange about it, sadly Paul Hunter, who was a very young man and prolific snooker player died of cancer at the age of 27. It was a tragic end for such a young man and many of us on here respected that and many of us mourned him. In those days the DL was on the Google search engine. I found my way here in 2004 by googling Fay Wray. Unfortunately people were googling 'Paul Hunter death' and we were one of the top hits on Google. It escalated from there, there was a thread about him and his death and it got to the stage people were seeing the thread and tracing the DeathList to the Grim Reaper and finding out his real name, occupation, phone number and address, It got pretty bad for a while. After that the DL changed it's settings on Google to not be searched by the famous names we discuss, I believe some have slipped through the net. We are not a site that wishes death on anyone at all, that is not our raisons d'ĂȘtre we are a site that respects death and primarily is a social area. Guessing who might die next year? well plenty of people do, they talk about it in workplaces all over the word, we use this website to do so.
  13. Life In Prison

    Rapist if I remember rightly, a nasty piece of work himself and banged up for life so had nothing to lose by attempting to kill Tobin.
  14. Life In Prison

    Now you've beaten me to it. Peter Tobin now collapsed after a possible stroke: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-3437033/Serial-killer-Peter-Tobin-69-rushed-hospital-collapsing-prison-suspected-stroke.html Oh good! I didn't have him on any teams this year, but I'll gladly take that fall for the greater good if this turns out fatal. At the very least, hopefully it's painful. I do! Unique pick for my team if he karks it, he has been on my team for a few years now. He is known though for being a hypochondriac, mostly when he is about to appear in court which is not likely at the moment, maybe he didn't like his current cellmate, the last one slashed him. I will not be counting my points anytime soon.
  15. Death List Convention

    There was some discussion last year about whether London might be more central. Very convivial last year on Canterbury but, you could have squeezed us into one car, though non of us was fit to drive. Yes it was great, maryportfuncity and welshman are a total pleasure to spend an afternoon drinking with,never a dull moment, but you could have fitted that convention on a tricycle never mind in a car. I am all for DL'ers having a convention again this year at the Canterbury food and drink fest, it is fab but I won't be able to make it this year. It is expensive for me to make the journey from my part of Scotland to Kent, there is no overnight quick option as it is a long slog and as I have done with every DL Convention I have attended I have made a weekend of it. This year I have committed myself to a weekend in Edinburgh at the start of October with a bunch of ladies I have been friends with since childhood, anyone who has booked a 2 night stay in a hotel in Edinburgh at any time of the year knows there isn't a cheap way of staying there and if there is you may get cockroaches in your bed. So LG will be bowing out of a Canterbury rematch in September in favour of cocktails and being exposed to embarrassing photos of herself as a child with some longtime friends she hasn't seen in many years. I do hope some DL'ers take the plunge and make a go of it in Canterbury.
