    Inverse Survivor Dead Pool I

    Team was PM'd at 10am UK time 30th when Bush Sr was alive. If sub allowed, I'll swap in McCririck now into that spot?
  2. I've been asked to bring this back by one of the forum statesmen... Ok, so with 2018 nearly history, how do you rate your success (or lack of) in the various deadpools you took part in? Hartlepool Deadlypool - Haven't a clue. Think doing OK, number of hits. None as good as that ER woman though. B- Hare's Pool - 16/25 died, however most of them died in January which is as useful in the Hares as a chocolate teapot. Only took 3 days of 2018 for jokering Rayya Ellias to look rather foolish. B- Deathrace - Finished before I'd even noticed it'd started. Mostly because I won with some right dodgy picks. A+ Death by Numbers - Pretty much been third all year, unable to get by DI or Reptile. B+ Alt Obits - Secnd time in, likely top ten finish. Could have gone worse. Completely overestimated the fame threshold, given some of those getting QO for it! B Scavenger Hunt - It's still ongoing. Need to be in it to win it, eh? Biblio's Movie Game - See above. DL Cup - Made Round 2, still underperformed due to being host. Was allegedly tetchy... (No Rating) DDP 1. Pan Breed - Much better than last year but not picking Falkholt or worse Francis has been killer. Still within 1 hit of the lead on 7th Dec - yeah, that's my unique Mr Piddington on a Christmas Day bonus, but you know, factually accurate... B+ 2. Here's Who You Could Have Won - A rag tag bunch of obscure programmers, musicians and the like which has done well above expectations to finish with 60+ points. C+ 3. And Yet You Had Space for Sinead O'Connor - Just a daft bit of theme team fun. Got 3 success from 20 names (Ditko just in the name of time!). B- Right over to you lot. Grade yerselfs, or no...

    Guess The Song

    Bingo, Willz, the floor is yours!

    Guess The Song

    OK, a nice quick one then. 1. 1970s UK number one. 2. Sung by a likely future Deathlist pick imo 3. Rabbits.

    Guess The Song

    Right, so older than charon, Willz and Toast, but considerably younger than LFN? Joey - Neil Young, Hey Hey My My? (or My My Hey Hey - I always mix the two up!)

    Guess The Song

    I thought you meant the title sounded depressing! Now I look like a right cunt!

    Guess The Song

    Dont You Want Me, Human League? Not really that camp but pretty sure in the right age ball park.

    Guess The Song

    So far I've learnt Ob-La-Die was a Beatles single, Eddy Grant had a 60s band and Mary Hopkins was a cover of a Russian song (!) produced by Macca, but not the answer!

    Guess The Song

    With a Little Help from my Friends, by Joe Cocker, covering Beatles off...Sgt Pepper iirc?
  10. All these interviewers ask him how he feels about his daughter's murderer being a charting musician in 2018 as if nowt happened. How do they think he feels FFS? Anyhow, Trintignant is a fine actor and will likely be on my 2019 DDP team.

    Norman Lear

    Also did the US version of Steptoe and Son, the imaginatively named Sanford and Son. Took him to be a sort of US Roy Clarke type.

    Alt Obituaries Deadpool

    Well, a lot of our number play this game, and Gcreptile currently leads it on Day 3 after Thomas Monson (related to Gorilla, right?). Given the Rotten Dead Pool appears to have gone the way of the dodo, and this pool gets talked about a fair bit - I found it via DDT - I thought it could have its own thread? Where we cheer on any of our lot against the (nearly) unstoppable Mr Tierney and co. The points system is similar but different to the DDP, and their criteria is somewhat America, but it's all good fun. Home Page Standings Who's Dead so Far Deathlisters playing in 2018 include Gcreptile, deadsox, Joey, me, Jireomon, Death Impends, Toast, and others I don't immediately spot. In 2017, Deathlister JiroemonKimura won, ending the reign of terror of Gerard Tierney, who won the 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015 and 2016 editions. Good luck everyone. PS We should have started this thread in December and swamped it with DDPers but hey, always 2019, right?

UPDATED 2nd July 2018: Deathlist Cup 2018 and ABC deadpool added Will be added to as more deadpools are won (and/or brought to my attention).

    2018 Report Card

    I think I speak for everyone here when I say The Living End retiring will be dark, dark day in DDP history. Glad to hear it's not imminent.

    Boxing Clever?

    Apparently yer oft mentioned Steve Bunce is now a "BBC boxing analyst" according to coverage of Wilder/Fury so that might help anyone with low but notable boxers on their shortlists.
  18. The Grosvenor used to do the posh version - half fried pizza with a fried egg on top. Bloody lovely. Sadly it shut down yonks ago, now a studenty middle class crap thing. Nowt wrong with a bottle of Bru.
  19. tbh, most of LFN's laundry list will happen no matter what happens to Brexit imo.

    The World of the Snowflake

    PETA are evil, and murder thousands of dogs and other animals every year. I wouldn't trust them if they told me I was Scottish...

    26 points at worst then for Dynamite? Likely the KO blow to all the folk below you then!

    Sir David Attenborough

    Bloody typo. Attenborough turned down "promotion" as he was itching to get back out into the field, of course. That's up there with the Dougie Donnelly Final Score great: "And those of you who don't want to see the Old Firm result ahead of the highlights tonight, look away now. Well, 2-0 Rangers, who'd have thought?" EDIT - Arse, totally forgot about the ISS till I saw this post now!

    Kiwi Karkers

    One of the great but forgotten - over here - 80s SF films (like Miracle Mile). Much recommended. Sad news. PS iirc he worked on the LOTR trilogy so should piss an obit.

    Sir David Attenborough

    Also when he was Controller of BBC1 he not only commissioned The Ascent of Man and Civilisation (two of the great documentary series) but also Monty Python, Old Grey Whistle Test and BBC snooker coverage! Man's had more direct influence on more walks of British life than even folk realise.

    Sir David Attenborough

    He's on my top 5 famous folk who should have been on the DL yesterday already. And yeah, big fan too.
