    Strictly Come Dancing

    The only time I have really encountered him is on Radio 2 in Zoe Ball old slot. A little annoying but nowhere near Jonathon Ross levels of anger inducing.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    Between Day 100 (10 April) and Day 200 (19 July) in recent years the worst performance was 2011 when there was one hit. The best performance was 2015 when there were six hits. In 2014 which is the lowest at this stage there were two hits. The good news is there were hits.

    University of Southern Carolina pay tribute not a QO but might alert some film buffs

    Well I did say this so @Prophet has to hope such an obit turns up before the game gets any tighter.
  5. Bibliogryphon


    This was within the period of the competition so this counts and gives @Prophet the seventh hit in this poll. Still waiting for someone to get a second hit though.

    There is always space for this type of intensive frenzy and at the moment it feels like we need more pools to keep us all occupied during this drought

    Dead Pop Stars

    Thinking of the NOW albums which have got to the point where there are more than 100. I got to thinking about the original NOW album (released in 1983) and created a list of 20 potential Deathlist picks. This is not comprehensive as I have omitted members of groups outside of recognisable lead singers. The only dead solo artist from NOW ONE is Malcolm McLaran. 1. Phil Collins (b.1951) 2. Simon Le Bon (b.1958) 3. Limahl (b.1958) 4. Glenn Gregory (b.1958) 5. Harry Wayne Casey (b.1951) 6. Bonnie Tyler (b.1951) 7. Boy George (b.1961) 8. Mike Oldfield (b.1953) 9. Rod Stewart (b.1945) 10. Paul Young (b.1956) 11. Tina Turner (b.1939) 12. Phil Oakey (b.1955) 13. Howard Jones (b.1955) 14. Peabo Bryson (b.1951) 15. Roberta Flack (b.1937) 16. Tracey Ullman (b.1959) 17. Lynn Goldsmith (Will Powers) (b.1948) 18. Robert Smith (b.1959) 19. Jim Kerr (b.1959) 20. Suggs (b.1961) If we don't get some action soon I might have to look at some of the other NOW albums

    Ready if you are. Thanks for running. We could do with some fast and furious action.

    Elton John

    That was my first thought too but the angle of David's hand isn't quite right. Think he just has his thumb in his pocket or waistband. Wishful thinking in these slow times.

    Authors Last A Long Time, But....

    Twitter & Wiki reporting Gene Wolfe (Book of the New Sun) dead. Unique DDP hit for me if true.

    Read Any Good Books Lately?

    That's no good you would not be able to see all you lovely books while you are sitting in it and what would happen if you spilt your tea!

    8. Jimmy Carter

    That is the sort of scientific analysis that the current incumbent subscribes to. Lets hope he takes notice.

    Thoughts and opinions on the death list 2019

    The Crowdsourced List is still on zero and the only hit on the Drop 40 is someone who would have struggled to climb the fame hurdle. I just think that Death is missing the obvious targets. If we do not have 5 hits by the end of August I will worry but we have had long droughts before.
