    DDP Team Name Rejects

    Jerry Lee Lewis should be on that list. He's referred to himself in the third person for decades.

    I agree we need to keep John Prine under close observation. His new album, The Tree of Forgiveness, was featured on Radio 2's folk show tonight and I think he's developed the croak of a dying man, a bit like Johnny Cash sounded like in his final musical offerings. The album sleeve photo, ominous song titles like (the excellent) Summers End and When I Get to Heaven, along with the fact Prine picked up a lifetime achievement award recently, attending but not performing at a concert held in his honour, all suggest to me that time might be running out for the great man.

    Presenters

    Westcountry wildlife presenter Johnny Kingdom, has died in some sort of accident on his land. Quite sad about this, bit of a local legend around here

    We have the Ted Kennedy thread which sort of morphed into The Curse of the Kennedys

    Political Discussions And Ranting Thread

    Watching our Prime Minister's hopeless attempts at dancing during her visit to Africa, made me fondly remember Boris Yeltsin, who was always up for a good dance...

    A wise decision Mike. Charon, please don't goad relatives of people suggested on this forum. Mike M has a right to be offended and I think we have a responsibility to take criticism on the chin at times like this. I'll be deleting a couple of your posts and will lock down the thread if you carry on with your insults. @MikeM, my condolences for your loss. DDT

    I must admit to finding Mr Santel's videos strangely compulsive viewing. However, Matt Stonie is the man when it comes to speed eating.

    From Cleric To Relic

    I note that Rev. Violet Mark Lorrain Foxall, a pick in my Deathlist cup squad, has now been discharged from hospital, although she hardly looked the picture of good health in the photo provided by her Mission's Facebook page. Alas, I'm not sure her fame extends much beyond the Christian community in Mizoram, India (the Maras) who seem to regard her as some sort of deity. I doubt even the Daily Telegraph on a slow news day would give the 'last Welsh missionary in India' much coverage when she goes, but you never know. I was intrigued by this picture I found on the Mission's Facebook site, entitled 'an artist's impression of Rev Mark's plea for unity between Mara churches'. What is the message? Who are these two men either side of her bed? Do they have a problem with each other? Is this some sort of bizarre love triangle? Answers on a postcard please.

    So .. What Do You Watch On TV?

    Deathray, I understand that all 156 episodes of the BBC's ill-fated Eldorado are available on YouTube. Tackling that lot in one go might be interesting? (I know this after falling down a Wikipedia rabbit hole while trying to work out where I'd seen that bloke on Holby City before)

    Death, Italian Style

    Only The Independent gave Lara a proper obituary in the end. She remains languishing in the List of the Lost and loses the chance to be (possibly?) the first Eritrean to be a successful pick. Personally, I agree that the Indy's exclusion as a DDP obit source deserves a rethink for 2019, because paper is on the way out and they give obits to interesting people.
