    You make BS seem like Stephen Hawking.Please leave Bruce Springsteen out of this. Fanx.Never crossed my mind, Toastie.It appears that I killed two birds with one stone, that could refer to Banshees or even bullshit.Depending on yer mood. So where are we with Dickie? This thread has gone rather quiet, I must say.

    Death Anniversary Thread

    Who? Author of Brave New World, Crome Yellow, After Many A Summer etc. Rather well known in an Anglo-Californian sort of way.You'll be delighted to learn that I read some of his books.My point was rather that I was an infant when he died. That, and a joke. Oh well.regards,HeinSix and a half years later, I will explain Pooka's joke to Magere. The passing of Huxley (and that of another famous early British fantasy/SF writer, C. S. Lewis), which would normally have been big news, was completely overshadowed by the fact that JFK was assassinated that same weekend.PS - it was also the weekend that Dr Who debuted on television, so quite a momentous time for SF afficionados.How should DeathList commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the biggest triple celebrity death weekend of all time? How sweet that the joke was explained some years later. I hadn't realised that Dr Who started that same weekend. I believe it means that I can recall the events of two consecutive days 50 years ago. I'm unsure why that impresses me.

    Whom Are You Tarring With The Epithet "twunt"?

    Pulphack! I remember your excellent posts. Or should I say I remember that your posts were excellent? The substance of them eludes me now. I shall do a quick search to refresh my memory. I popped back in the last fortnight too after a gap of a few years. It's great fun re-visiting threads from yesteryear that I'd forgotten. Possibly because I was pissed at the time. This site always had a nice balance between witty eccentrics and driven obsessives.

    Gosh. It's Bill Sikes! Keep to the straight and narrow Zorders. Roughhouse leads to tears as Nanny used to tell me.

    Pooka!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!This has made my day, I take it you won your appeal, Sir. My dear Lord Nelson! All a silly misunderstanding. It's good to be back on Deathlist: the home of the morbid gambler. One certainly misses so much news when one is out of circulation. Now that I'm out I'm certainly looking forward to catching up with old friends like Max Clifford and dear old Rolf. im sure they'll put me in the picture regarding events outside the walls!

    John Hartson Diagnosed With Brain Cancer

    Hmm, not Radio Five dead then. He's in my DDP team. Bad pick. Mmmmmm.... Is he a gunner or a goner? Or, more accurately, an ex-gunner and an ex-goner? (see what I did there?).

    Bridgend Swingers Club

    Fair point Mary. Hopefully others will follow. Looking back on this thread, I do wonder what happened to The Pooka. That fellow was fuggin class! Did he used to live in Bridgend? Just had a quick look at his profile, he hasn't been on here for in almost a year, and he does list suicide amongst his interests.... The Pooka is here - and he too wonders what happened to him........ long story. No I never lived in Bridgend - though the suicide cluster excited me. However, I suspect (give or take the odd imitation) that random events will lead to little pockets here and there. It happens with rare cancers. Lot of interest in Leukaemia in Ferndown once (10 miles away). Downwind from an atomic energy plant etc. But it was based on a total of 3 or 4 people - and was followed by ten years of zilch. ..... though if you've ever been to Ferndown you may suspect that the locals would welcome death (15,000 people, a newsagent and a betting shop).

    Well unless you can see through walls, it wouldn't would it? Have they stopped putting windows in rest homes then? Went past there again a few days ago and still didn't see him. And, yes i am so bored at work that I'm reading the first few pages of this thread over again. Never boring! After so much time its like an old friend. God bless R.O'S.

    Rumours

    Why thank you Lord Fellatio. Not dead ......... alas. But where I've been there were times, over the last 18 moths, when I envied the dead! Needless to say a minor misunderstanding involving my presence in a celebrity's back garden has led to me lacking the degree of liberty that I would normally crave. All sorted now .................
