Right. Apart from the numbering the list is pretty much as recieved from each person, I'll go through and standardise names (Queen, Prince Philip etc.) when I next get a chance.

Interesting that presumed favourites Pete and Amy seem to be a fair bit behind the trio of Thatcher, Obama and The Queen. I did start doing a full count just before New Years Eve, but I lost track of Prince Philips and closed notepad in rage.

i see a few have gone for those already known to have terminal-life threatening illnessess.


Title: Re: Death Predictions 2009.
Post by: flammableBen on Sunday, January 4, 2009, 18:21:11
Yeah. And there's a few that I'm guessing might be tricky to judge on. Swayze for instance I think may have denied his is terminal, yet it's still be pretty widely reported as otherwise, could be wrong, I can't honestly say that I've done that much research. Guess I'll worry about people like that if they die.

You can if you want. PM me.

Whilst I understand an uneasiness at the morbid nature of predicting the people's deaths, I think that by considering your list your thoughts will have been with their lives, both in the present and in the past. The list is a celebration of those who are notable enough to be remembered by many when their end comes, for both good and bad reasons; as well as a realisation that for many, their impact will be felt far beyond the direct actions their mortality allows.

Or some such bullshit.

Yeah. 1/10th of what you would get normally.

There may well be some wisdom in picking up the almost guaranteed few points from the like of Wendy Richards and Bobby Robson, but in the end you've got no chance of hitting the big points you'd get with a younger, not ill person.

The factor of a tenth seems a bit high, although some consideration did go into it. It was between that and a score based on how many other people had picked the same person. The problem with the latter is mostly to do with the size of the fame pool we had to pick from, it would have been very easy to go through wikipedia and find obscure terminally ill people. Which is pretty boring when it comes to waiting to see who dies.

This could have been solved by stricter "fame" criteria than just having a wikipedia page, but then what do you pick instead? Stuff like an IMDB page and google search results end up being heavily skewed in favour of certain types of people.

Saying all that, if it works out ok and we play again for 2010 then it might be good to do a combo of the terminal illness rule and some sort of score weighting depending on how often they appear in lists. Have to wait and see I suppose.

It's a weird statistical balance of trying to keep the fun in making it worthwhile with lucky guesses and "feelings" about people, as well as rewarding a bit of research on who you thinks on their way out.

Ha.

Mex's list is just a wish list innit.

Good call on Thaksin Bo, don't know why I didn't think of that myself.

Oh, and I decided against Kim Jong Ill myself because of the low pointage factor.

Where does alcoholism stand in the terminal illness stakes?


Title: Re: Death Predictions 2009.
Post by: Peter Venkman on Sunday, January 4, 2009, 20:51:22
Mediating on what is terminal disease wise as well could be difficult Ben, by terminal does that include people who have previously had Strokes and Heart Attacks or are we talking only about Cancer type illnesses?

As then Kirk Douglas who is known to have had a couple of major strokes would be worth 12 points based on the 100 point system but if strokes are classes as terminal then he is only worth 1.2 points!

Thats why I didnt go for the obvious ones like Castro, Wendy Richards and Bobby Robson.

Fidel Castro would be 1.8 points.
Wendy Richards would be 3.5 points.
Sir Bob Robson 2.5 points.

I dont really care either way TBH but I am just curious really as to what the guidelines are to the pointage.


Title: Re: Death Predictions 2009.
Post by: Rich Pullen on Sunday, January 4, 2009, 20:55:15
I picked Kirk Douglas because he's old not because of previous illnesses, darn.

Where does alcoholism stand in the terminal illness stakes?

I'd already asked about known alcohol/drug abuse on the Winehouse issue and the ruling was as long as they didn't have terminal liver/brain marinading they count as healthy.

Where does alcoholism stand in the terminal illness stakes?

Quote
Alcoholism: Physical dependence on alcohol to the extent that stopping alcohol use will bring on withdrawal symptoms. In popular and therapeutic parlance, the term may also be used to refer to ingrained drinking habits that cause health or social problems. Treatment requires first ending the physical dependence, then making lifestyle changes that help the individual avoid relapse. In some cases, medication or hospitalization are needed. Alcohol dependence can have many serious effects on the brain,  liver, and other organs of the body.

I read that to mean that alcoholism itself isn't an illness per se, but a causal factor to a number of other illnesses, be they terminal or not.

Post by: Batch on Sunday, January 4, 2009, 21:49:43
So are my Kylie/Watson picks on limited pointage? Both are in remission AFAIK and so while they are at higher risk than normal they aren't terminal.



Title: Re: Death Predictions 2009.
Post by: flammableBen on Sunday, January 4, 2009, 22:41:39
They should be fine then batch. It's the other end of the scale I'm worried about judging, those who have (or are reported to have) potentially terminal diseases which aren't necessarily terminal yet.

Unfortunately he is 95% terminal:

http://www.digitalspy.co.uk/showbiz/a140706/swayze-i-may-only-have-two-more-years.html

Quote
Patrick Swayze has admitted that he may only have two years to live.

The Dirty Dancing actor, who was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer last year, told ABC interviewer Barbara Walters that he was "going through hell".

"I'd say five years is pretty wishful thinking," Swayze told Walters in an interview to be broadcast tonight. "Two years seems likely if you're going to believe statistics. I want to last until they find a cure, which means I'd better get a fire under it."

He continued: "You can bet I'm going through hell. There's a lot of fear here... Yeah, I'm scared. Yeah, I'm angry. Yeah, I'm [asking] why me?"

Despite pancreatic cancer patients only having a five per cent survival rate, Swayze remains defiant, saying: "Am I dying? Am I giving up? Am I on my death bed? Am I saying goodbye to people? No way."

Swayze has continued to work while undergoing treatment, filming TV series The Beast in Chicago last year.

I'm undecided on swayze as it has already been reported elsewhere last year than it wasn't looking good for him. But yeah, he himself hadn't admitted it.

Admitted what though? There's nothing Patrick has said since you voted for him that wasn't already known,

Quote
Pancreatic cancer is one of the most virulent forms of cancer which medicals experts say has a 5% five-year survival rate.

in fact he seems to be defying the odds, so when you voted for him he was more likely not to make it.

Quote
Two years seems likely if you're going to believe statistics. I want to last until they find a cure, which means I'd better get a fire under it."

He said despite already defying the odds (pancreatic cancer patients are usually only expected to survive six months), he is still scared about what the future holds

As someone who's not involved in this game, I do think it's a bit of a cheeky prediction.  The bloke has an aggressive form of cancer, and this was in the public domain at the time of prediction.

A stewards enquiry should be held should the geezer sadly pass away during 09.

But like I say I'm not in this game so what's it gotta do with me.

I said that if anybody asked me when they were making entries then I'd make a decision then. Nobody did. So I'm leaving it until people die now. Mainly because I can't be fucked to go through all the different people, some of which I haven't even heard of.

It had been as early as January 08 and on and off since then. I think he denied it to start off with but went quieter towards the end of the year.

Edit: If he died in a car crash or something then full points would be fair enough. As it appears that he died of the numerous terminal whatevers he was reported of having last year you get a tenth.

Nearly everyone went for Obama! Only got 4 months to go.

I did chuckle at DRS' choices and comments, one in particular caught my eye:

Quote from: DRS
1. Bruce Forsythe
2. Paul Gasgoine
3. Barack obama
4. Prince phillip- Racist attack by a zulu
5. Bobby robson- i hope not
6. The queen- Aids
7. Cliff Richard- Pure bumming
8. Paul ogrady – overdose on jam
9. Wendy Richard- for being a cunt
10. Ian Huntley- Stabbed

2 out of 10 so far though, not bad

Patrick Moore, a popular choice for 2009, has died aged 89.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-20657939

RIP Gamesmaster.

Quote
Moore was noted for his conservative political views. In the 1970s, he was Chairman of the anti-immigration United Country Party, a position he held until the party was absorbed by the New Britain Party in 1980. He campaigned for Edmund Iremonger in 1979, as both men agreed that the French and Germans were not to be trusted.[58] Iremonger and Moore gave up political campaigning after deciding that they were Thatcherites.[58] Moore later campaigned on behalf of Douglas Denny (UKIP) for the Chichester constituency in 2001.[59] A Tory voter for many years, he remained a supporter and patron of the eurosceptic UK Independence Party until his death.[60] He briefly supported the Liberal Party in the 1950s, though condemned the Liberal Democrats, stating that he believed that they could alter their position radically and "would happily join up with the BNP or the Socialist Workers Party... if [by doing so] they could win a few extra votes."[59]

He also stated his admiration for the Official Monster Raving Loony Party,[61] and wrote in his autobiography that Liechtenstein had the best political system in the world.[62] Moore was a critic of George W. Bush's Iraq War,[63] and has stated that "the world was a safer place when Ronald Reagan was in the White House".[64]

Proudly declaring himself to be English (rather than British) with "not the slightest wish to integrate with anybody",[61] he stated his admiration for controversial former MP politician Enoch Powell.[65] Moore devoted an entire chapter ("The Weak Arm of the Law") of his autobiography to denouncing modern British society, particularly "motorist-hunting" policemen, sentencing policy, as well as the Race Relations Act, Sex Discrimination Act and the "Thought Police / Politically Correct Brigade".[66] He later wrote that "homosexuals are mainly responsible for the spreading of AIDS (the Garden of Eden is home of Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve)".[67] However he cites his opposition to blood sports and capital punishment to dispute claims that he has radical ultra right-wing views.[61]

In an interview with Radio Times, he provocatively asserted that the BBC was being "ruined by women", commenting that: "The trouble is that the BBC now is run by women and it shows: soap operas, cooking, quizzes, kitchen-sink plays. You wouldn’t have had that in the golden days." In response, a BBC spokeswoman described Moore as being one of TV's best-loved figures and remarked that his "forthright" views were "what we all love about him".[68]

In his June 2002 appearance on Room 101 he banished female news readers into Room 101.[69]
"I may be accused of being a dinosaur, but I would remind you that dinosaurs ruled the Earth for a very long time."
—Moore responds to those who criticise his Euro-sceptic and right-wing beliefs.[70]

What a lost treasure

I'm a big fan of Philip Seymour Hoffman's work. His Paul Thomas Anderson collaborations were particularly brilliant. Then you've got Lebowski, Capote, Moneyball and his small yet great role as Lester Bangs in Almost Famous.

He also did some greatly depressing stuff like 'Happiness' and 'Synecdoche, New York'.

Ultimately, Hoffman did a great job making amends for appearing in Twister! Farewell.

I do agree that Tony Benn was a conviction politician.  But I also feel that, ironically, those convictions played a part in making his party unelectable for the best part of a generation.  The electorate resoundingly rejected the left-wing agenda he & Michael Foot (among others) were pushing in the late 1970s/early 1980s.  All very noble, & I don't want to denigrate it necessarily.  It's just that there are many out there who hold him responsible for keeping Labour out of office for so long and cementing Thatcher's hold on the electoral centre ground in her early years.

I do agree that Tony Benn was a conviction politician.  But I also feel that, ironically, those convictions played a part in making his party unelectable for the best part of a generation.  The electorate resoundingly rejected the left-wing agenda he & Michael Foot (among others) were pushing in the late 1970s/early 1980s.  All very noble, & I don't want to denigrate it necessarily.  It's just that there are many out there who hold him responsible for keeping Labour out of office for so long and cementing Thatcher's hold on the electoral centre ground in her early years.

Nevertheless 8.5 million people voted for such measures as the abandoning of Trident, and removal of all US bases from the UK...good to have the option even if unsuccessful....you can't complain about politicians doing what they believe to be right, then complain that they should alter their policies to be electable.

In the 83 election the votes cast for Labour + SDP/Libs...outweighed those cast for Thatcher.

I would have thought Michael Foot made Labour unelectable on his own.

That donkey jacket he wore at the Remembrance Day was a defining moment.

Always thought is strange that Labour has never found their equivalent of Thatcher - Tony Benn was probably the closest.


History looks very unkindly on Michael Foot mainly because of the way he looked. he was a fantastic speaker and a tremendous intellect although he was a massive Argyle fan. He was never a leader though.

It is basic human nature to maximise your own resources. It is the way we are wired and it is why none of the above ever work because the minority of sociopaths who inevitably gravitate to power do so to the detriment of the rest of the population. Hence why we need an environment where achieving as much as you can is possible without using force against others.

I disagree that "everyone is too selfish and greedy" though. For example - do you care about the poor, the sick and the old? You would say yes, as the overwhelming majority would. So would you help them if they needed it? If you said yes then you are staying with your moral principles. If no, then you obviously don't care about them. So in the absence of socialism, or a government, or a state, or any of the other faulty constructs, those people would be looked after. No socialism required  ;D

Funnily enough it also encompasses the traditional Labour party, funded by the unions. All as bad as each other. Time to think outside the box and move beyond cronyism.

He took on racial discrimination cases, and represented two female professors in a gender discrimination case. He received awards from the NAACP, and made up a third of Kansas’s docket for civil rights cases.

That would depend, Jan, on whether you believe someone deserves a taste of their own medicine, or whether you should appeal to some sort of decency within them by showing them you won't be moved to anger.  In the end I don't think it matters which, neither will help because despite what Gandhi believed, some people have no decency.

Also, I know no one has articulated this here, but I hate the idea that you shouldn't speak ill of the dead, as if death absolves you of all blame for the actions of your life.

Sorry Jan, but that is nonsense.

Phelps was nothing but pure evil who hurt other people that had never done a thing wrong to him. Picketing the funerals of dead soldiers and telling the parents it's their fault, it's difficult to think of much worse.

The world is better off without people like him. I don't mean to say that as a sound-byte people often say when somebody dies: I mean the world is literally better off without the likes of him in it and I am, literally, pleased that he is no longer on this planet because the alternative is that he is still on the planet spreading his hatred.

I think that may be a throwback from times where people were more religious/superstitious but I agree, why should death mean we can say no bad about a person? They're dead, what difference does it make what we say?

That's not the point being made.  Yes he was an evil hate-filled man and I'd agree that the world is better off without him, but tweeting his family to taunt them over his death is showing the same mindless hatred that characterised his sad little life.  Do that and we end up in a lynch-mob world where we decide that we are entitled to treat people as badly as they try to treat us.  Effectively that it's ok to torture a torturer.  By replicating their actions (in the name of moral outrage, common decency etc etc) you legitimise their actions.

Agreed, not for one minute am I backing up a single thing the stupid prick said during his life. But, personally, I couldn't bring myself to take the piss out of someone who's just lost their dad. You can't choose your relatives and this fuckers son had no chance in life.

Some of the family did leave...

Nate Phelps, for example, left and is now an atheist which shoots down the suggestion that Fred Jr had no chance of being 'normal'.

I don't mean to be too belligerent though because I agree that the indoctrination will certainly play a huge factor in how somebody turns out. Regardless of whether or not Fred Phelps Jr was indoctrinated or not though there is still no escaping the fact that he grew up to be a right horrible cunt.

I just think it's about having a bit of respect. We all have people in the celebrity circles who we might be irritated by, never met them,  never directly affected us. If someone fits into that criteria for you personally why would you feel the need to slate them, especially when they are no longer around to respond?  If you're happy to keep slating people who have died then you're certainly entitled to your opinion,  I personally think it's something that isn't necessary to share on a forum. (but that's my opinion)

I am a conscientous human being. I didn't find it funny that Peaches Geldof died. Nor do I revel in her death or have contempt for her family members at what must be a massively difficult time for them.

Clear? Ok.

I just find it a little appalling that when someone related to a famous person, whose only (real) claim to fame was being related to that famous person, and therefore being someone who the media loves, a 'hollow' celebrity whose life is based around appearing in celebrity magazines, the media paw over it like jackals at a feast, and will doubtless continue to paw over it for as long as humanly possible, seeking out any kind of excuse to fill some air time with anything about the poor dead girl.

They don't care about who she was or what her family are going through. All they care about is using her shell of a media persona to sell stuff. And that's what they'll do, mark my words. Whether she asked for it or not. And that's what my comments were targeted at. Poorly, I'll admit, as I'd just come in from a 12hr shift at work, but that's where I was going with it.

As a related aside, if someone who has actually contributed to the betterment of life on this planet dies, they're doing well if the media reports it as front-page news, let alone actually takes a moment to remember them for their accomplishments.

Thanks Flashheart for defending me. You're a sweetheart. xxx

Different celebrities affect people in different ways,

Personally I only know her as the child of Bob Geldof and Paula Yates and to me she meant nothing in my life. To others, perhaps she did in a positive way and her death will affect them.

When say Don Rogers passes away, this forum will be full of messages and heartache, but to others, say, not interested in football will be thinking, why are these people bothered, he only kicked a football about.

Not sure if what I am trying to say comes across properly.  :badmood:

I think people react far more to the media's hyperbole than they do to the actual event. Any death is sad, and one so young is undeniably tragic.  But there's an element of mawkish, Diana-esque grief that I think is what rubs people up the wrong way. Keeping your mouth shut is almost certainly the best option, but I don't think people should be considered callous for making remarks that speak more about the culture of celebrity than the obvious tragedy of children being left without a mother.

I think someone should start a social network that's a bit like the obituary pages of a newspaper. It could announce all the deaths each day all over the world with a short write up and everyone can grieve together.

It could have petitions and polls and stuff where people can effectively tell everyone just how tragic all this dying is, or how we should declare a national holiday, pay into a specific charity and find ways so it doesn't happen again. They could also have grief pages dedicated to someone like an online funeral.

Instead of a like button, it could have a "sadness" button. People can then click about how sad they are, instead of having to type, and they can then spread their grief far more quickly and effectively. They could share deaths with fellow grievers and the homepage could rank various deaths by sadness rank and shares.

It could also show grievers "other deaths you might be interested in showing sadness about" and these can then grow grief virally allowing a justified amount of sadness to be shown. 

Maybe the sadness button could be added on websites, then people can press to show they're grieving about whatever it is being talked about. This could then allow more sad content to be shared and then we won't miss any suffering and tragedy.

I think I'm on to something here. :sherlock:

I feel the same way about the Geldoff family. Albeit without any notion that the family might suffer any additional suffering caused by stress from financial pressures and what not.

Other than that if somebody wants to say that Corporal John Doe was a bit of a fucktard than that's their opinion and, provided that they don't torment the deceased's loved ones with that opinion, then they are free to express it. I don't know corporal John Doe. Was Cpl John Doe a good person just because he was a soldier? Are all soldiers good people?

Why do you single out British troops?

What about the deaths of other coalition troops, the deaths of young Taliban soldiers that have been taken advantage of and all of the innocent civilians that have lost their lives?

You heartless bastard. How callous can you be?

What it boils down to is I don't understand the motivation for somebody to say on a forum that someone who has just died is 'vapid and useless'.

Why bother saying it at all?

He's not, but I kinda like his posts.

He's one of the "don't care" supporters and I think he acts a bit tough.

We are all imperfect but I happen to think recent death is precisely the time to see humour or distinctiveness or shared frailty in deceased persons rather than to be dismissive or ranty and negative.

Where I would agree with the "don't carers"  is that ersatz emotions of grief being genuinely experienced by proxy in respect of celebrities can become a little odd.

Harmless enough, I suppose, in that we all do it.  Although I control it these days, STFC is still capable of producing mood swings that have little relationship with real life and baffle even my family.

Still, for those unknown parents who have also lost a child in their twenties last week, their sense of grief must be cheapened somewhat by the fact that what appears like half the country is also apparently sharing the same sense of loss that they are.

Emotion by proxy at the County Ground or from a piece of music, yes but grief for a celebrity?  Respect, yes, empathy for the bereaved, yes but grief?  Get a grip.

There's not necessarily a motivation is there? This a thread about dead people after all.

There are many tossers in the world. Take Piers Morgan, for example. I think that bloke is an odious cunt and should his name spring up I may well express that opinion. It doesn't mean that there's an underlying motive for saying it, I just think he's a cunt.

I suspect that most here will share a similar opinion of him. Are they bad people for saying it now while he is still living? Will they be worse people for saying it when he is dead?

How about just shutting the fuck up and keeping thoughts to yourself unless you have something interesting to say.  Most people have very little to say about celebrity deaths. Point them out by all means but surely take 2 minutes before spouting shit.

Fuck it maybe I'm just to grumpy. I'm increasingly coming round to the opinion that we should just turn of the Internet and media for a week to allow people to remember what it is to think for yourself not pedal some bullshit  viewpoint and maybe to remember that what you feel you have to shout out about via social media is really not enlightening, entertaining or important.

Btw I'm not having a go at any one in particular on this, as I say I'm just grumpy. And perversely feel that I have to blather on about it on the internet thereby negating everything I've just said.

Not in the slightest, I've checked. Grief tourism is fucking embarrassing. Guess what, I don't give a flying fuck about kids in Africa either. WHAT A MONSTER

You can think grief tourism is embarrassing (I really can't stand it, and some on this board has been guilty of it on occasions) whilst also thinking that crowing about a young womens death because she was 'vapid' is also distasteful.

The two aren't mutually exclusive, the world isn't just divided into those who want to publically emote about every single tragedy and those who think it's hilarious to troll the former.

There are some of us in the middle, opposed to both, I used to think we were the majority, but I'm starting to wonder recently.

Calling people callous, heartless and selfish because they are indifferent toward the death of complete strangers = bollocks.

Acting as though one has moral superiority = sanctimonious.

ergo: What a load of sanctimonious bollocks.

I could also add hypocritical. Somebody on this thread has stated that the indifferent should be killed, which seems to have been ignored.

Therefore it is a load of sanctimonious, hypocritical bollocks.

Endlessly emote? I think you've just added to the bollocks factor!

"Actively go on a forum"? Do you think HT heard of her death then went out of his way to comment? I doubt it very much! Stop trying to dramatise it.

Personally I don't have a particularly strong opinion of Peaches, as I had mentioned earlier. It's a shame, but I am neither happy nor sad that she died as with other complete strangers that die. I am indifferent. I am more interested in the debate than the fact that they actually died.

The problem is that people, all of us, form opinions of people they don't know purely on media of all sorts.

I would imagine a lot of people thought Jimmy Savile was an OK sort of guy who selflessly used his fame to raise charitable monies - an opinion formed by watching and reading. Not knowing.

We all know how that turned out.

My objection to this whole thing is that HT's comments (which he now regrets) was based on the merest skimming of social media which was harsh to say the least.

As for individuals not caring about others that is up to them but should not be surprised if some people find it sort of odd

Who said we don't care about others?

I'm fortunate to have some very good friends and a wonderful family, I love them dearly. I can't speak for HT and Jayo but I'd guess that they also care a great deal about the people in their lives.

I certainly don't go about wishing harm on others and would stop pain and suffering if it could, but I simply can't. That doesn't mean that I should be sad whenever somebody dies. There's billions of people in the world and people are dying all the time, many in extreme anguish. It's just reality. A harsh reality but reality nonetheless.

My opinion of Peaches is actually quite positive. She went from being a fucked up young girl with a fairly tragic past/upbringing into a lovely young woman with strong opinions and an air of grace and thougtfulness. She completely destroyed that horrible cunt Katie Hopkins in an interview on This Morning and came across as intelligent, caring and actually quite nice.

Her death, however, hasn't moved me in the slightest. She may as well have been a cartoon character for all the fucks I give.

Over 6,000 people I don't know die every hour. Nearly 1000 of them will be children, most in the developing world.

Whilst intellectually we might all agree that the death of all those young people is tragic, we don't, actually can't, go through any sort of emotional engagement or grief for those people. Human beings, quite sensibly, are programmed to care most about those closest to us, children, partners, immediate family, wider family and social network, tribe, local community etc.

We couldn't function if we felt the same way about the death of someone we never met as the death of a friend or family member, because it's happening all the time.

The variance in how people respond to the death of a celebrity, is not about how emotionally cold or engaged they are, it's about the extent to which they have accepted the concept, consciously or subconsciously, that because they've heard of this person, know all about them, are regularly given updates on what they are doing, that this means they have some sort of relationship.

When I hear about a death like this my thoughts tend to be not much more than "what a shame" but I don't FEEL anything much. I found it very difficult to take seriously the outpouring of grief around Diana Spencer's death for precisely these reasons. I couldn't understand people being so emotionally engaged with someone they'd only experienced through the media. It feels either:

- Childish - the equivalent of those young girls that are bawling in the street and needing counselling when some boy band splits up; or
- False - like people were misappropriating the grief of the woman's family and friends for effect

But I sort of had to accept that for a lot of them the feelings were genuine. There are people, and seemingly a hell of a lot of them, that are capable of forming an attachment to people they'd never met, never spoken to, who had never heard of them, and probably would never want to.

However, I'm pretty sure that no-one on here REALLY feels much of an emotional response to the death of the Geldof girl. What you're really arguing about is propriety. Some of you feel it's bad form to say anything negative about someone that's just died, or even to state that you don't care about that death.

Although many of those involved on that side of the debate don't seem to have much of a problem saying what the hell they like about people when they're alive. Odd?

Anyway, I don't think the two sides of this debate are actually that different. Your problem isn't feelings it's language and tone, which is difficult to get right in writing of this kind.

Those of you that are accusing others of being unfeeling need to honestly ask themselves this question:
"Do you really FEEL sad about this death? Or do you just THINK that this death is sad?"

I'm willing to bet for the most of you it's the later. You think the circumstance is sad, you think you should feel sad about it. But you don't actually feel any more than I do.

Maybe some of you don't know the difference, but one day you'll sit holding the hand of someone you love as they die and it'll become pretty clear.

Those of you that are accusing others of being unfeeling need to honestly ask themselves this question:
"Do you really FEEL sad about this death? Or do you just THINK that this death is sad?"

I'm willing to bet for the most of you it's the later. You think the circumstance is sad, you think you should feel sad about it. But you don't actually feel any more than I do.

Maybe some of you don't know the difference, but one day you'll sit holding the hand of someone you love as they die and it'll become pretty clear.

You're quite eloquent when not floundering under a tempest of your own impotent rage.

Maybe this is more appropriate:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=itRMx8fBwTo
They crucify you when you get it wrong
When things are fine they put you ahead
They laugh at you with your trousers down
They pick the stones and aim them at your head
When you're alive they won't care what you said
What you deserve and all the blood you bled
It doesn't matter what you try to hide
The sun comes out and then the truth is read
Your fans'll love you when you're alive
But the wreaths are laid by the rest instead
When you're alive they won't care what you said
What you deserve and all the blood you bled
'Cos everybody loves you when you're dead
Kneel and pray by the side of your bed
And everybody loves you when you're dead
Kneel and pray just like your momma said
When you're alive they won't care what you said
What you deserve and all the blood you bled
You'll turn in your grave at what's gonna be said
You'll finally be appreciated
'Cos everybody loves you when you're dead
'Cos everybody loves you when you're dead

Gabriel Garcia Marquez died last week and no one predicted death more magically than him in the opening lines of his novels:

"Many years later, as he faced the firing squad, Colonel Aureliano Buendía was to remember that distant afternoon when his father took him to discover ice."

"On the day they were going to kill him, Santiago Nasar got up at five-thirty in the morning to wait for the boat the bishop was coming on. He'd dreamed he was going through a grove of timber trees where a gentle drizzle was falling, and for an instant he was happy in his dream"

My Dad's name was read out in 2011 when it was silence. However, Iris's name had been read out shortly before which generated impromptu singing from the town end. While I completely understand why this happened, I was disappointed not to be able to hear Dad's name on my phone recording. I think silence is the way forward rather than applause as I wouldn't want anyone to miss their loved ones name.

 Young Ones, was like my life style about 15 years earlier....a bit anachronistic, but when the BBC staple was stuff like Terry and June, Wendy Craig domestic shite, and other twee middle class suburban fodder. A welcome relief.

I would argue that he hasn't been in a great film since about 1997 but if you're an celebrity who decides to get divorced then you do all of a sudden have to start making any mediocre/terrible film for the money

I suppose I'm of a generation where his children's films were a staple part of our childhoods - I saw Hook, Aladdin and Doutbfire all at the cinema for example....

...but it's his stand-up which I'll remember him for the most.

I didn't like One Hour Photo, hence why I would argue because there will be people who liked later efforts.

Williams did plenty of serious roles but it was his choice of comedic rfilms which were a greater shame in his later years.

That is so right. I don't mind a few of his cameo appearances but in the main his roles this century have been mediocre at best.

I will remember him more for Mork & Mindy but his stand up was so full of energy that its the stand out overall.

I remember his appearance in a dream type sequence episode of "Happy Days" that was so good that he was given the Mork and Mindy series that made his name to a far wider audience. As said elsewhere on here, his stand-up routines were well worth watching and as far as films went imho "Good Morning Vietnam" was him at his best.

Another comedian that had two sides to his personality - very sad getting to that state.

A little off topic: I was on holiday on the Greek island Lindos in the late 70's, and got chatting in a bar with a semi-well known jazz singer (I do remember her name but won't mention it). Lovely girl. She was there with, amongst others, her then boyfriend Reginald Bosenquet. A few months later the singer was in court on a soliciting charge. On being quizzed about their alleged friendship a spokesperson of RB said he had "no knowledge of this person"

Loved the Discworld books when I first discovered them years ago and am reading the last one at present. Always liked the depth of them, funny fantasy stuff but with plenty of references and views on current society as well. One of the greatest British authors of all time and a sad loss.

Thought the tweets were a nice touch.

Thank you for posting this. I missed it the first time and only saw your post today. Really enjoyed it.

It's fucking incredible. I was (and am) a big Pratchett fan, especially his books around the early mid 2000's. He started off with a shit fantasy pisstake and then actually built a world around it. There's a story of him at a fantasy convention with other authors talking about cities full of elves and dwarfs and shit, and he asked where all the sewage went and who fed them. And that's how his books worked at their best. Satirical versions of real cities, warts and all, but with magical creatures playing different races, and all the real city organisation with went with it.

He's been accused of being guilty of literature. I'm not sure I'd go that far, but his best books are amazing, and his worst books are middling.

His biggest legacy, however, is how he approached his inevitable deteriorating condition, Alzheimer's. The speech written by him and read by Tony Robinson is heart-felt, beautiful, well-argued, and amazing. And whilst I love his books, in fact I've saved the last few up, instead of reading them straight away, knowing that there wouldn't be that many more, his stance on 'choosing when you've fucking well had enough and want to die' is fucking spot on.

My grandparents (God rest their souls) used to live in a village near Wallingford...which is how we ended up at the Oxford panto.  I can assure there was nothing more to it than that!

Neither grandparent ever showed the slightest interest in football, incidentally.  Least of all the yellow variety.

If memory serves correct, you did however voluntarily eschew Wiltshire's higher education options in favour of Oxfordshire...

You could buy a new Austin Maxi Highline for £1,806 in 1975.

Quote
Maxis come with engines of 1500 or 1750cc but the Highline has the big engine with twin carburetters and other features like brushed nylon upholstery, heated rear window and sports wheel trims. High compression pistons, twin carburetters, revised camshaft and new manifolds increase the power. Body side strips with coloured inserts, larger tyres, electric screen washers are included in the specification

She was walking past a funeral director's and they had an open coffin in the window.

Justin Wilson, British ex-F1 driver who's been racing in Indycar in America for a number of years, has passed away after being struck on the helmet by the loose nosecone of another car that'd crashed ahead of him. Horrible accident, the absolute worst of luck and he's paid the ultimate price. A truly sad day for motorsport. I remember Massa getting hit by a suspension coil and the effects that had on him, a nosecone is a lot bigger and heavier. RIP.

There's been discussion about this for quite some time, there's benefits for sure, but also massive problems, such as if a car ends up on its roof and it's on fire, how does the driver get out? Motorsport is incredibly dangerous, but Indycar seems especially so of late. Dan Wheldon, another Brit, was the last Indycar driver to die in 2011, but so many more have been injured since then. This year's indy 500 race saw a number of accidents in practise, 3 cars flipped and one driver was impaled by one of his cars suspension arms after it entered the cockpit. 200mph when you're 15 feet from a concrete barrier will always be dangerous.

Indycar seems especially so of late

Indycar has always been the most dangerous *sic, quad wheeled motorsport.  Their attention to downforce and it's behaviours is poor. Trouble with Indy is that its designed so cars virtually stay in a slip-stream all the way round. If that position is held the vehicle is in near auto pilot. However when a takeover is engineered they're receiving incredible amount of G-Force the moment they take that option. How many times have you seen an Indy car flip trying to take over? They get into constant top speeds with the ovular notion of the circuits. This becomes dangerous as the brakes are only every seen as an emergency device. It's about time Indy focused on its regulations (even if it means lowering and limiting the top speeds). F1 isn't perfect but it has moved miles ahead since the late 80's/early 90's. Still as in all motorsport, every driver knows that when they enter the circuit there is potential for death.

RIP to them all.

I'd say 'unfortunate' rather than disgusting.  You cannot try a dead man.  He died an innocent man in the eyes of the law.  His death maybe supports the view that he was not fit to stand trial.  We'll never know whether he was guilty of the abuse that has been alleged.

Exactly.
He may be innocent, he may be guilty. You can't just pretend the accusations aren't there because he's dead. Justice is about far more than inflicting imprisonment on a living man, especially from a victim's point of view.

I haven't done that.

The accusations are there in plain view.  No one doubts that they exist.  You say yourself that he may be innocent or guilty.  All I'm saying is that a judicial process needs to be followed in order to establish which.  And Janner was not in a fit state to participate in that process.  It was your use of 'disgusting' which I wasn't sure about, that's all.

The only alternative judicial process that might be followed now that he is dead is some form of enquiry, public or otherwise.

What, like Jimmy savile?

He's a good example, actually.  He was never tried, and never found guilty.  That's why the enquiry is necessary.

Ah, I see what you mean now, apologies Ardiles. Disgusting does imply there was some sort of decision process I disagree with - which I don't. You can't blame the judicial system for him dying. I just wish the trial of the facts had been able to go ahead. "Disappointing" just didn't seem strong enough a word, but in hindsight would probably have conveyed what I meant more accurately.

I was quite surprised, given this country's lust for blood when it comes to pedophiles, that most people weren't satisfied that Lord Janner suffering with dementia was some sort of karmic justice. Either way, as has been stated he dies an innocent man with his family sticking by him. I don't really know the ins and outs but tend to believe there's no smoke without fire. Bit of a tricky subject really.

Indeed, its a murky old case...

One area that has caught my eye and building on your comment about this country's lust for blood when it comes to pedophiles is the clamour on Facebook for his trial to go ahead despite his Dementia which means he would have been unable to contribute or defend himself, which ironically seems to be being led by many of the same people who were most vociferous against the use of secret evidence in trials - the right to an even trial doesn't seem to apply in this case?

I have no idea of the rights and wrongs in this case and it is rightly a tricky mess where whatever happens you are not going to get an outcome that keeps everyone happy but there does need to be consistency in the legal process.

Possibly gets Tom Watson out of a slightly embarrassing situation following his clamour for the prosecution of Leon Britton  whilst refusing to sign letters calling for the trial of Janner...

Really?
I've heard and read a lot about him from managers and players of that time who all were very complimentary. Wimbledon fa cup winning side for instance. England when they actually were good.
The bloke was very much sought out to coach teams.


Title: Re: 5 year old thread to talk about people that have died
Post by: janaage on Wednesday, December 23, 2015, 18:26:31
Yeah I know he was 'pretty good' but like you say people used to really big him up and now looking back he didn't really achieve an enormous amount to back it up. Not meaning to do the bloke an injustice, especially today. Just interested.

Howe's reputation was forged by coaching the Arsenal double team of 71. He kind of invented the 1-0 to the Arsenal culture

Not saying he was responsible for the negative/pragmatic football of the 70's, which led to England getting left behind by the likes of the Dutch, but it sure didn't help. 

The symbol of this side was Peter Storey, previously a full back, but drafted into midfield to kick people, which he was more than happy to do before falling foul of the law in later life.

 They didn't trust flair, had invested in Peter Marinello from Hibs, reckoned the Sweatie George Best....he barely got a game before being shunted off to Pompey.

Charlie George briefly shone particularly in the Cup Final, but soon moved on and never really showed his talent.

George Graham, was part of that side, and became famed for the defensive organisation he'd inherited from Howe.

Whenever a side shipped a few goals, there'd be a call go up to get in Don Howe....probably part of the reason why British coaches have such a poor reputation in the world game.

So a fairly homeward looking 'best coaches of his generation'. That's what I was thinking. Remember his TV work in the 80's early 90's not being too exciting either. Still he did well out of the game, enjoyed a good life.

More notably, Don Howe coached the Arsenal team that reached the League Cup Final in 1969 taking the famous Swindon Town to extra time and succumbing only to two late goals by THE Don.the greatest player of his generation.

In spite of his influence on coaching at the highest level, Don was not especially self-important or high minded and in later years he became involved with Newbury Town, commenting:

There's no difference between coaching England and coaching Newbury Town.  The reason is that they're all blokes.  There are England blokes, Manchester United blokes, Arsenal blokes and Newbury blokes.  You are coaching men, human beings.   Don Howe, who worked with both the England Squad and his local Isthmian League part-timers, 1994

RIP

On the subject of Don Howe, I have a story to tell of my one encounter with him...

In 1979, on the day that Swindon Town played Arsenal in the League Cup quarter final replay at the County Ground, I was helping out in the sports shop, selling programmes, souvenirs, etc, in the afternoon.  A phone call came in from the main office that they'd run out of match day programmes there and I was duly despatched to the office with a large box of them.  As I walked alongside the North Stand (as it was then), a team coach pulled up and a man (who I later realised was Don Howe) was knocking on the window, waving at me to stop.  The coach pulled up and the man came down the steps and asked if he could have a programme.  I told him that if he wanted one they were 35p each.  After checking all his pockets, he found he had no money on him.  I'm sure you're expecting me to say that I gave him a programme anyway, but I didn't.  I just shrugged and walked on!

I always maintained that we won that night because Don Howe and Terry Neill didn't know what team they were putting out as they didn't have a programme to tell them!

Anyway, RIP Don.

Interestingly, the run to Burton not only included a sighting of the Marmite factory, now incorporating the Bovril plant as well, but a passage through Branston on the A 38 on the edge of Burton. Could it be thought I? 

Indeed it could, the origin of the pickle much loved accompaniment to cheese sandwiches. I'd always thought Branston was a company name....silly me that's Crosse and Blackwell. Sadly pickle is no longer made there, but Burton did get Bovril from London.

He had a fuck of a lot more effect on my life than Diana did. A true legend.

He was a bass player/singer  in a band that had 3 or 4 good songs, and he played in Hawkwind for one of their best songs, I know a few who have met him who say he was a really nice bloke, but a legend? Really? Motorhead were pretty good for a few years in the early 80's but they weren't as good as people are remembering!!

My father in law died at the weekend and I'm picking up the pieces of my family. He died of a vicious strain of Alzheimers - an illness that I was quite ignorant of until I saw a proud and lovely man destroyed before my very eyes.

My brother definitely doesn't listen to David Bowie and he's hopped on to the grief bus to seem knowledgable. That's his prerogative.

I love a lot of David Bowie's music, that won't change. I also like how he clearly had a sense of humour with his cameos in stuff like Zoolander and Extras.

The last time he truly impressed me was during the Olympics closing ceremony when everyone thought he'd come out and sing Heroes... Nope. Kept his artistic integrity til the end.

I first saw Bowie in about 71, I was part of the Ents Committee at Uni, and we had  about a grand to spend and a certain number of shows to put on. Another kiddy and I could remember Space Oddity which had come out in 69, and Bowie had fallen off the radar somewhat, so we thought he'd be a good value headline for £250....we opened the gig with a then little known band for £30....called Roxy Music. It was maybe later in the year that he released Ziggy Stardust, and the rest is history.

I loved the 70's output, but more or less lost interest around the end of the decade....

My father-in-law saw Bowie play Bristol in 1972 with support from Suzi Quattro and Thin Lizzy.

It was the Ziggy Stardust Tour but pre-TOTP. He bought his ticket on the day and was moved to the front as the venue was half empty. A year later and there are queues around the block for his return (which he also went to).

That man has some great gig tales and I'm envious.

I think Bowie is or may come to be regarded as a great artist rather than rock star.  Time will tell.

Male model, performance artist, actor, director, story teller, musical performer, enigmatic thinker.

As a teenager, I wasn't especially comfortable with glam rock, let alone sexual ambiguity.  I was forever grateful that the "All the young dudes" song Bowie  donated to Mott the Hoople saved that loveable but chaotic rock band from immediate extinction.

A mere footnote to Bowie's career but even so a big deal to all Mott fans and just one sign of Bowie's eclecticism and generosity.

That's so wrong I don't even know where to begin. My problem isn't that she hasn't heard of Bowie or Rickman but her view that anything outside her extremely narrow spectrum of knowledge or experience can't possibly have any worth whatsoever. If she's not heard of some one or something, it's not worth knowing.

I can only hope she reads that again a few years from now and realises how dumb and arrogant she has made herself appear.

To which I replied 'I have indeed'

She followed up with: 'I haven't'..

Erm, you mentioned them to me?!... She does it to get the attention.. I don't entertain it to her face. That's just playing up to it.

One of my colleagues put on Facebook "am I the only person who never heard of this latest 'celebrity' to have died?" (speaking of Alan Rickman).

She also went on to say "I just about managed to work out who the Bowie geezer was, but that's only because they kept playing his songs"..

Followed up with "these people can't exactly be legends if I have never heard of them!"

To Give a little more of a clue on her personality... She's a James Blunt fan.

Who's James Blunt anyway?

Like the sound of her and think she has you eating out of her hand.

She'll make a top High Court Judge one day.

Blowfly aka Clarence Reid.. Had a greater influence on music than people realise. The film about him is worth watching if you're into that kind of thing.

aka Buffin, a Herefordshire lad, very much the glue of early Mott, who loved this cult, nearly band and who latterly sadly suffered from Alzheimers.  His boisterous and uncomplicated drumming complemented the "rock 'n roll". RIP.

It's actually thought that the concept of the Abrahamic hell derived from an actual place just outside Jerusalem. It was like a large rubbish tip that was often burning and smouldering and people of the time were threatened with being sent there as punishment if they didn't tow the line. It's mentioned in the bible a a few times.

No one said it had to be motivated by anything bad, but there really are people on social media who post a loving tribute to every celebrity who ever dies whether they've heard of them or not. It's just kind of crass and blatantly disingenuous.

To be fair, she did 'file' Watchman and go on to write Mocking Bird, maybe it was for the very reason Atticus wasn't enlightened enough or the story good enough. I kind of viewed it as a separate, different story I suppose.

As for cash cow, no doubt it made a lot of money. But she hardly benefited from it herself, it only got published last year! I suppose she could have written any old crap any old time, and it would sold masses. Chose to live as much of a reclusive, fame free life as possible from what I can gather.

In later years, I became very glad that I was never forced to over analyse a book, and so developed a love of literature.

I lived with a couple of (Welsh) English undergraduates at Uni. Think the English language side is fairly interesting, at least the roots and the constant evolution of language is.

English lit always seemed over-analysis of a book to second guessing what the author actually meant and presenting it as fact.

Reminds me of a story of an (unannounced and incognito)  author giving a book reading, a discussion afterwards on which there was the "what the author meant here" comment. The author disagreed, an heated debate followed up to the point the other said "look, I am the author, I really didn't mean that".To which said arguer declared the author as "wrong"  :)

I must admit that listening to him talk I did feel almost uncomfortable with his accent, it seemed almost insulting, but he was accepted by the black community in Bristol a long time ago so they seemed to not have had a problem with him.

A truly awful illness that within 18 months took her from someone who was able to watch games from the DRS to someone who lost the use of all her limbs, couldn't talk or eat and eventually took away her ability to breathe.

At 54 it's far too young for her to have left us, bye bye sweetheart :cry:

Brilliant player, one of the best I ever saw play in his prime as I was a bit too young to see Best, Pele and Beckenbaur.

He was a very heavy smoker and only had lung cancer since October, but he has a heart bypass back in about 91/92 so the warnings were there then.

Cruyff, with Rinus Michels, and the Dutch teams of the 70's revolutionised football.

Cruyff then took the philosophy to Barca, and set up the dynasty, which we see today.

It's very difficult to convey just how sexy those Dutch teams were, kind of capturing the zeitgeist of a new generation of Europeans emerging from the very long shadow of post war reconstruction.

Sadly the Dutch squandered that legacy when Bert van Marwjik's lot tried to kick the Spanish off the park in the 2010 WC final.

I met the guy numerous times. Quite an intoxicating fella, if that's not too much of a pun, with his wit and intelligence.
Still, he did some awful things with some terrible people just for the cash. It's weird how he's got this status because it's "only weed" but international drug trafficking doesn't quite work like that.

Regardless, I hope he rests in peace.

I've always had a soft spot for Victoria Wood, my children went to the same primary school as her in Bury, and I remember her early career as well as the later stuff. Much funnier IMO than some of the current women comedians.

RIP

Surely 2 coppers could have restrained him without the need to electrocute him, on the face of it looks like lazy/heavy handed policing especially if the eye witness account is accurate.
It's obviously a hard job but looking at some of the coppers that you see at football matches I wouldn't trust them with a truncheon let alone a taser...

The Black Lives Matter group must be having a right fucking jizz off at this

People used to have to make the effort to scrawl a letter in green ink with a mix of upper and lower case, buy a stamp, find an address, go to a post box and trust that the royal mail was not going to lose the letter before sending off uninformed bile.  Im so much happier that the modern age allows us to jump to conclusions with absolutely no knowledge of what happened.

God forbid we have five minutes to respect the families of the dead before spunking off some 'opinion' without thinking about it.  Quick, lets get some opinion from someone who saw him play once, quick lets ask someone who is against the police.  Now we'd better balance it lets get someone from the police.  QUICK QUICK! we've got to fill the 24 hour ear jizz rolling news quotient.

Shut up for 5 minutes everyone.  Turn off.  its healthy.

Gene Wilder was in Willy Wonka and the chocolate factory, which although a very good film, loses credibility in the scene where Charlie & Grandpa Joe taste some lemonade that they shouldn't. It ruins the concept that he was the only "good boy" who didn't give in to temptation to be rewarded at the end.

Yes.  That is correct.  Graham the Inspirals guitarist is a friend of mine who does the same job and works for the same company as me.  Very very sad news about Craig.  44 is bloody young.

     Apparently. I worked at the Oasis then and worked on the set up for the gig. We(the Oasis staff) played football against the roadies after the set up. Sadly can't remember seeing Noel specifically. I remember we beat them though 👍

Shocking and sad.
Me and my mates saw the Inspirals a few times in 89-91 including the Oasis show.
Their singer was a Pox fan I believe but we didn't hold that against them.
They didn't make "great" records but they were a fabulous live band. 
Craig was the youngest member by a long way and must've been a teenager when they headlined Reading Festival in 1990.
44 is no age

That is sad, twin brother of Ron. Not common for twin bros to both make it in English football. Their older bro Graham played a handful of games for Chester, where they came from, both Paul and Ron were best know at Luton.

Post by: Peter Venkman on Friday, November 25, 2016, 18:19:37
Ron was a really handy centre forward in his day, Paul was a very strong centre back, both played for Man City and Luton.

Paul nearly made the England squad a few times in the late 70s early 80s, very under rated centre back.

I know Paul played against us quite a lot for Grimsby and Barnsley in the late 80s early 90s.

RIP

Checking up on Paul's record, it would appear that when he left Luton for Man City he became the most expensive defender in the country!!  To put that into context we got Vigs for more than the most expensive defender in his day!!

Not what was implied or said for that matter.  When a kid, you had a small amount of MSM to be exposed to, which was probably a good thing as it made sorting wheat from chaff easier.

It didn't take much working out about the vacuosity of celebrity and US style chat shows.

There is a lot of stuff coming out about his 'hidden' charity work. He loved being famous but didn't like 'fame' per se.

Mrs ghanimah is a big fan and 'dragged' me to one of GM's performances during the Live 25 tour at Earl's Court. I was never really into his music, but hearing him sing live is something else entirely. No recording I've heard ever did justice to what his voice sounded like live.

Who said anything about not mentioning the programme?

By all means mention it, just don't drop in spoilers. If one really needs the need to drop in a spoiler, then use a dedicated **SPOILERS** thread, that's sort of the point in having them in the first place. If there isn't one, then make one. If it's not worth making one, then surely dropping in a spoiler can't be all that necessary.

I'm with Chubbs. I've never seen an episode of GoT in my life and even I knew a) more or less who John Snow is and b) that he either died, or he didn't.

I strongly suspect Jayo of fishing, in his own delicate way.

to be honest, you'd have to be a hermit to not know that part. I don't even watch it and i know.
Consider myself hermitted, never seen GoT and have no intention of it either, doesn't appeal to me.

Then again there are quite a few people in this thread that I had never heard of or knew by face but not name until I googled them.

Not sure if you are being genuine or not, but if you are..  Really?  2 years ago?  So nobody is allowed to mention any outcome on any TV show ever, just in case somebody hasn't watched it?  If it was the current series, fair enough.  It isn't..

I'm not fishing. Season 4, episode 3 watched last night. Ever since I got stung by Flash Forward I don't tend to watch shows until they're finished/established.

And yes I have successfully avoided spoilers. No doubt I probably heard some before I started watching the show, but with no frame of reference you quickly forget... until you start watching the show and get to know the characters.

Completely agree. What's worse is some channels even show you what's going on currently, or about to happen, during ad breaks of other shows. Sky and channel 4 are fuckers for this, and it's a fucker when you're several series' behind.

It wasn't even one season was it? Didn't it get canned after something like 7/8 episodes of what should have been a 13-episode 1st series? The missus would know, I'd ask her, but I don't want to revive the trauma. She's still bitter about it.
