I know, it's been amazing. The celebrity dead pool my brother-in-law has been running for nearly a decade used to be a slow and dull affair but this year it has been really action packed! There's a real buzz about the 2017 pool and the number of players looks like it's going to nearly double! The transfer system will have to be tightened up I think. Maybe build in a points system linked to how irrelevant the deceased's career has become by the time they croak? It's just a thought. It's an exciting time for sure though.
If it's slower than me, dumber than me and it tastes good ... tough titty.

When I was on holiday in New York last month a random store security guard was humming "Faith" to himself. Just goes to show the global appeal George Michael had. I, of course, spent the rest of the day humming it. :D

The loss of George Michael is a shock. I grew up listening to his stuff - a true genius imo, I wasn't much of a fan of his later work though.

Still, genuinely gutted hes gone.

I've just heard about Carrie :cry: Not even The Force was strong enough to beat 2016.

This morning when the radio came on to get me up, the news started and I was thinking "Who will be the one to die today, and I got someone from The Royale Family", then layer it was the guy who wrote Watership Down, then Carrie Fisher. When I went to look for a news story I saw that another actress has been found dead in her car (Tricia McCauley).

WHAT'S GOING ON?!!

I think the odds on another tomorrow are almost 1:1

I had the pleasure of meeting Carrie twice at conventions, she was just lovely and friendly and wonderful. 2016 can really censored off now :(
