Anyone Pick Heath Ledger?

Heath Ledger dead



The Academy Award nominee has been found dead in his home.

Story still developing....

A police spokesperson has confirmed that actor Heath Ledger, 28, was found dead in his New York home .

TMZ reports that Ledger was found in bed by his housekeeper. No details have been released as yet, but TMZ says that law enforcement sources are not treating it as a crime.  CNN reports that he was surrounded by over-the-counter sleeping pills.

Update:
TMZ says that a masseuse arrived and was let in by the housekeeper. The masseuse knocked on the bedroom door and when there was no answer, opened the bedroom door and found Ledger unconscious. Paramedics were called and found Ledger in full cardiac arrest. He was pronounced dead at the scene at 3:30 p.m.

The Olsen connection: Ledger was staying at an apartment owned by the Olsen twins.

Ledger, who has a daughter with fellow actor Michelle Williams, was nominated for his role as the cowboy Ennis in 'Brokeback Mountain' and just wrapped filming on 'The Dark Knight' where he played the Joker to Christian Bale's Bruce Wayne/Batman.

Ledger was filming 'The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus,' directed by Terry Gilliam at the time of his death.

Selected Filmography:


The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus
The Dark Knight
I'm Not There
Casanova
Brokeback Mountain
The Brothers Grimm
Lords of Dogtown
The Order
Ned Kelly
Four Feathers
Monster's Ball
A Knight's Tale

News to me too.

It's going to turn in to a transfer stramash everytime someone famous is admitted to hospital.

Could have this wrapped up by the end of the week if you keep you're ear to the ground.  If so, I've got three celebs earmarked who've all been rushed in this week.

In Beadles autopsy, coroners discovered something interesting about his penis. On the one hand it was average sized, on the other it was fuckin huge!

His family apparently want something simple for the funeral, for instance at the buffet at the wake will just be finger food.

Just think, if Beadle had died in some sort of war or had been murdered needlessy by religious minorities we would all be jumped on for being sick minded, insensitive fuckers. As its just Beadle its fine to have a chuckle about it. Where is the logic  :-\  8)

Quote
Steve Fossett, the multimillionaire adventurer, has been declared legally dead five months after his disappearance while flying over the Nevada desert.
His wife, Peggy, had filed her petition in a court in Chicago to allow the process of executing Mr Fossett's will to begin.

"It was very sad," said Michael LoVallo, Mrs Fossett's attorney. "At first she hoped and sort of envisioned him walking down the road the next day with another story to tell.

"But as the days went on, she realized it wasn't going to happen as it had on other occasions when he'd had close calls."

After hearing testimony from Mrs Fossett, a family friend and a search-and-rescue expert, Judge Jeffrey Malak of the Cook County circuit court yesterday found there were "more than sufficient" evidence that Mr Fosset was dead.

Ben Hur star Charlton Heston dies
(http://newsimg.bbc.co.uk/media/images/44543000/jpg/_44543626_heston_ap226body.jpg)

Charlton Heston, who won a best actor Oscar for his starring role in the epic Ben Hur has died aged 84, a spokesman for the star's family has said.

Heston died on Saturday at his home in Beverly Hills. His wife Lydia, whom he married in 1944, was at his side.

Heston also portrayed Michelangelo, El Cid and other heroic figures in movie epics of the 1950s and 1960s.

He stepped down as president of US gun lobby, the National Rifle Association (NRA), in 2003, citing ill-health.

Got to say, Ajja's scouting system has been proven as first class. I took the Jimmy Calderwood approach of signing whatever 'big names' were available at the time, and while it paid off with Heston, I just can't compete with Ajja's level of extremely old celebrities knowledge.

Soul legend Isaac Hayes dies

 (CNN) -- Soul singer and arranger Isaac Hayes, who won Grammy awards and an Oscar for the theme from the 1971 action film "Shaft," has died, sheriff's officials in Memphis, Tennessee, reported Sunday.
Singer Issac Hayes seen performing in the U.K. last year. Hayes was found dead Sunday at age 65.

Singer Issac Hayes seen performing in the U.K. last year. Hayes was found dead Sunday at age 65.

Relatives found Hayes, 65, unconscious in his home next to a still-running treadmill, said Steve Schular, a spokesman for the Shelby County Sheriff's Department.

Paramedics attempted to revive him and took him to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead shortly after 2 p.m., the sheriff's department said.

No foul play is suspected, the agency said in a written statement.

I know it's Christmas day, and it's bound to be a difficult time for her family, but Eartha Kitt you selfish old hoor - how feckin dare you!


I substituted her for Nicholas Parsons in the transfer window.  :(



I think that's the celeb-death equivelant of an OG.  :hammer:

It's an exciting end to the season.


get your teams ready for the new season.

I think this time we should just get the folk with goals to pick new players for their squad. Plus the transfer window will be open for january.
How does everyone feel about this?

After all it's just folk dying and that. It's not like it doesn't happen everyday like. :-\
Saves all the fucking about for you to be honest. I'm for that.

 :thumbsup: Damn right, those aging 60's killers are a shoe in for death. Susan was given 6 months to live in June last year so I'm hoping for an early score to settle the nerves.

I'd avoid Sharon. He is technically dead in hospital but for political reasons they are keeping him alive. I had lined up Seve and Steve Jobs but Jay has either got someone else who got in before me and is waiting to update the list or he is being a lazy bastard.

Former Big Brother star Jade Goody has confirmed the cervical cancer she is being treated for has spread to her bowel, liver and groin.

They are now looking at ways to prolong her life so she can spend as much time as possible with her sons.

Boyfriend Jack Tweed, 21, was said to be "numb" over the news and Goody has begun preparing a will.

Her sons currently are staying with their father, TV host Jeff Brazier.

Goody was first told of her cervical cancer in the diary room of the Indian version of Big Brother and flew home for emergency treatment.

Always thought she was a scourge on society, but I have personally known folk to die horribly of cancer and two bairns will be left without a mother.

Hmph. Anyone would think Harcus was the only person to have scored in Celeb Deaths this season.  >:(



You set a good early pace, but your squad will need to keep it going over the rest of the season.  :P

My remaining three.

Vaclav Havel - former Czech PM and author/playwright.

The more balanced squads will see success. You need to have quality all over the park, a solid back line of ageing wrinklies, a strong midfield of terminal illness and if you can get that all important death row striker then you are in with a shot at the title. Of course there can be those surprise packages in the squad, impact players if you like.

If I'm not mistaken, he may have been jailed for this, but has received two death sentences for various other crimes. However, I'm not really happy with his contribution to the squad. He came with a big reputation and the potential to be great, but hasn't lived up to that as yet.

Jade Goody close to death
Jade’s family prepare for the end
Published: 16/03/2009


DYING: Jade Goody’s health is getting worse.
More Pictures
JADE Goody’s family were today readying themselves for the end after the cancer-stricken star deteriorated over the weekend.

“She has put her house in order and faced up to everything in an incredibly brave way,” her friend and publicist Max Clifford said.

“Now we’re waiting for the inevitable, it could be at any time, we just don’t know.”

Yesterday, Jade was visited at her home in Upshire, Essex, by her young sons, Bobby, 5, and Freddy, 4.

Although Jade was under sedation and spent much of the last two days sleeping, she smiled when she saw her children and was “briefly conscious” of their presence, according to Mr Clifford.

Goody’s mother Jackiey Budden and husband Jack Tweed were also at her bedside.

The family had been hoping for friends and loved ones to visit but the 27-year-old was not well enough.

Goody has reportedly told her sons, who are staying with their television presenter father, Jeff Brazier, she will soon be in heaven.

(http://www.usmagazine.com/files/skylar_blog.jpg)

Former Mighty Morphin Power Rangers actor Skylar Deleon was sentenced to death today in California, the AP reports.

Deleon, 29, is charged with murdering an Arizona couple in 2004 by tying them to an anchor and throwing them overboard their yacht into the Pacific Ocean off Southern California.

See star mugshots.

Prosecutors say he and his then-wife Jennifer Henderson gained access to the boat by feigning interest in buying it.

After the grisly murders, they scrubbed the boat clean with bleach wipes. The bodies of Tom and Jackie Hawks of Prescott were never found.

Henderson was sentenced in 2006 to two terms of life in prison without parole for her role in the murders.

Deleon was also convicted of killing a man he met on a work furlough program in 2003. His attorneys admitted he'd committed the crime, but argued Deleon was predisposed to violence because he was raised by his drug-dealer father after his mother abandoned him.

US 'Viagra scientist' dies at 92
A packet of Viagra
The anti-impotency drug is used around the world

A leading US scientist whose work helped lead to the development of the anti-impotency drug Viagra has died.

Robert Furchgott shared a Nobel prize in 1988 for work showing that the gas nitric oxide played an important role in the cardiovascular system.

The discovery that the gas could help enlarge blood vessels was a factor in the development of Viagra by the US pharmaceutical company Pfizer.

Mr Furchott's family announced he had died in Seattle on Tuesday. He was 92.

I'm going to have to make some major changes to my squad in the upcoming transfer window - I've not been happy with the contribution of some of my players - they have all the potential in the world but have shown no signs of living up to it, and that's not good enough at Harcus FC. With all due respect to teams like Andrew and Nellie, I don't expect to be equal with them at the half way point, even taking into account the former's questionable methods in gaining joint top spot.

In fairness, they show all the signs of living up to it, and indeed way, way beyond it, which is sort of your problem.

This just goes to show that Harcus FC fans are living in the past. Unlike most of his players, who are living in the present and hopefully will be living long into the future.

So, 4 years ago would have been 2005
Boyzone split up in 2000
Boyzone re-formed in 2007

So, there couldn't have been a Boyzone gig 4 years ago.
Which leads me to the conclusion that Stephen Gately hasn't been had by Mizer.

I've still to pick my 4th player, but what I'll do is just leave it blank just now until I hear of a extremely minor celebrity that is right at deaths door.

I'll then send you a PM for a quick point, just minutes before he pops his clogs.

It was more about the death being before or after the transfer was made as opposed to the transfer window.

However I may give people a week to get their team to 4. If they don't then I will remove them from the game if don't respond to a pm.

I was more about him having a 1 point head start on everybody else.

A daytime TV presenter died when a solo sex game went wrong, police believe.

Kristian Digby, host of BBC1's To Buy Or Not To Buy, is thought to have accidentally suffocated while attempting auto-erotic asphyxiation.

The extremely dangerous practice, in which participants deliberately starve themselves of oxygen apparently to increase sexual pleasure, also cost rock star Michael Hutchence his life.

It is said that masks, ligatures or even plastic bags can be used to achieve the desired effect.

Lost Boys actor Corey Haim dies aged 38 
 
Corey Haim was a teenage heartthrob
The Lost Boys actor Corey Haim has died aged 38, the Los Angeles coroner's office has confirmed.

A spokeswoman said he passed away in the early hours of Wednesday morning at Providence St Joseph Medical Centre.

A post-mortem will determine the cause of death and no other details have been released as yet.

The Canadian-born star's first role was in the 1984 hit Firstborn. In recent years, he appeared in reality TV show The Two Coreys.

The series, which also starred Haim's friend Corey Feldman, was cancelled in 2008 after two series.

The pair, who both have battled drug problems in the past, starred in the 1988 movie License to Drive together and became well known for their on and off screen partnership.

After Firstborn, Haim landed a role in the 1985 TV movie A Time to Live and also appeared in several episodes of the TV show Roomies.

He went on to become a teen heartthrob after starring in the 1986 film Lucas, alongside Charlie Sheen and Winona Ryder.

Haim starred alongside Kiefer Sutherland in The Lost Boys, about a group of friends who do battle with a band of teenage vampires.

Sting and Gene Simmons only get to be celebs because they were singers. Nicky Wire wrote a lot of lyrics so he gets dispensation also...for now.

Phil Lynott?

Phil Lynott?

If they are the singer it doesn't count. In that situation they're only playing bass so that they aren't standing at a mic wi nothin to make phallic gestures with AND to everyone's benefit the band doesn't need to have an out and out bass player.

Slike the sex pistols without sid vicious were nothin special and sid couldn't even really play bass. He was a celeb for his personality and image. The bass was just an unfortunate add on.

Bass players are the ones who tag along wi rockstars getting groupies left right and centre without actually doing anything. Bastards.

point for young Andrew.

Quote
Actress Gloria Stuart, who played an elderly shipwreck survivor in the film Titanic, has died at the age of 100.

The blonde actress appeared in several films during the 1930s, before retiring from acting in 1946.

Stuart resumed acting in later years and at 87 became the oldest actor ever to be nominated for an Oscar for her performance as Rose Calvert, a 101-year-old Titanic survivor.

Stuart died in her sleep in her Los Angeles home, her family said.

The native Californian also starred in The Invisible Man and two Shirley Temple movies.

Stuart, who studied drama and philosophy in college, helped found the Screen Actors Guild, a trade union that represents actors.

She was under contract with Universal Studios and 20th Century in the 1930s.

The Hollywood veteran was diagnosed with breast cancer about five years ago, but survived the disease.

"She just paid no attention to illness. She was a very strong woman and had other fish to fry," Stuart's daughter, Sylvia Thompson, said.

Titanic became the world's highest-grossing movie of all time in 1997, until the movie Avatar claimed the title in 2009.

Tributes have been paid to agony aunt Claire Rayner, who has died at the age of 79.

She told her relatives she wanted her last words to be: "Tell David Cameron that if he screws up my beloved NHS I'll come back and bloody haunt him."

She worked for the Sun, Sunday Mirror and Woman's Own and was named medical journalist of the year in 1987. She also wrote a string of novels.

In May she had intestinal surgery but had remained poorly.

She died in hospital near her home in Harrow, north-west London.

Mrs Rayner, who had three children - Amanda, Adam and restaurant critic Jay - will have a humanist funeral for family and close friends.

A former nurse and midwife, for many years she was also president of the Patients Association.

She was diagnosed with breast cancer at 70, but beat the illness. In 2006 she wrote about her experience on the BBC News website.
Claire Rayner Claire Rayner was one of the pioneers of promoting safe sex

Her husband of 53 years, Des Rayner, said: "I have lost my best friend and my soulmate. I am immensely proud of her."

Mr Rayner, who was also her agent and manager, said: "Through her work she helped hundreds of thousands of people and doubtless, by talking frankly about the importance of safe sex in the 80s when almost nobody else would discuss it, helped to save thousands of lives.

"Right up until her death she was being consulted by both politicians and the medical profession about the best way to provide the health services the nation deserved and nothing mattered to her more than that. Her death leaves a vacancy which will not be filled."

In 1996 she was awarded the OBE for "services to women's issues and health issues".

She was involved with 50 charities, and was a member of the Prime Minister's Commission on Nursing and the last government's Royal Commission on the Care of the Elderly.

Her no-nonsense manner led to the BBC employing her to demonstrate how to put on a condom and she was one of the first people used by advertisers to promote sanitary towels.

Born into a Jewish family, she later became president of the British Humanist Association, whose chief executive, Andrew Copson, said: "Claire Rayner found meaning and inspiration in living and the enjoyment of life, in trying to fulfil her potential, and in the wonders of nature and the marvels of the cosmos.

"She was a remarkable woman with broad interests and deep sympathies who lived an exemplary humanist life and we all feel lucky to have known her and to have had her support for so many enjoyable years."

The chief executive of the Patients' Assocation, Katherine Murphy, expressed her "deep sadness" at the news and added: "For almost 30 years Claire has devoted so much of her time and energy to championing patients' issues. She was a figurehead and inspiration to us all."

Her close friend, Baroness Helena Kennedy, said: "She was an extraordinary woman - passionate, committed, warm and exuberant. The key thing about Claire was that she was a campaigner to her toes - her mission was to improve the lot of others and she did it with great humility and common sense."

If you transfer somebody in and they subsequently die, then you won't get the points - hence why we are still playing the 2010 game.  :wave:

Larry Hagman rip in peace. It's probably just a dream though.

Sounds like a good lad

Quote from: guardian obit

In his later years, Hagman became an advocate for organ transplants and an anti-smoking campaigner. He also was devoted to solar energy, telling the New York Times he had a $750,000 solar panel system at his Ojai estate, and made a commercial in which he portrayed a JR Ewing who had forsaken oil for solar power. He was a longtime member of the Peace and Freedom Party, a minor leftist organisation in California.

Hagman told the Times that after death he wanted his remains to be "spread over a field and have marijuana and wheat planted and harvest it in a couple of years and then have a big marijuana cake, enough for 200 to 300 people. People would eat a little of Larry."

It's fair to say I remember little of her time in charge. But anyone whose legacy was strengthening the grip of the rich on this country at the expense of everything else gets no respect from me. Even before the sickening facts of her role in turning a blind eye to crooked Police fabricating shite.

Only if you're a Liverpool fan.

I think it's the poll-tax that most people resent her for.
Some people resent her for closing the mines but more coal mines were closed under Labour.

Bullshit. Not just Liverpool fans find a Thatcher cover up of the Hilsborough facts wrong. Not sure what point you're trying to make?

And like I said. Tip of the iceberg.

The point I was making is that a Hillsborough cover up is not high on the list of Thatcher's failings for many of us, in fact it never even crossed my mind until you mentioned it!

Really sad.  I met Jon a couple of times and he was a lovely bloke and an absolutely top drummer. I knew things weren't great for him - was down south seeing them at Delamere Forest last month and Pete Salisbury from the Verve was standing in for him - but never thought it was this bad.

Nelson Mandela is probably the bravest man to live in modern ages.  That alone should bring him respect, but then you look at what he was fighting for, when he was fighting for it, and consequently who he was fighting against for it... and it makes you respect him even more. 
 
He forgave the people who wronged him in almost the worst way imaginable.  The people in our country can't even respect each other when a bona fide tragedy strikes.

RIP Lemmy. Saw them at Reading 79, my first festival. The Capitol gig on the Bomber Tour was incredible, the Ace of Spades being the best live song I've ever seen.

He was a strange man but a wonderful performer. Bought me and my mate a drink - "whatever you're having Lemmy". Carlsberg Special Brew. May have not been as sexually active as one might expect given the "rock and roll lifestyle". Deeply insecure under it all and never married or had a long term relationship (to my knowledge) in the last half of his life at least.

Girl School was the support act. I didn't see them because I was in the bar where we met Lemmy. The reason I remember who the support act was was because I confronted Lemmy about them. "You said in Sounds that by the end of the tour you would have had every one of them Lemmy. How's that going?"

When he said "nah, just the blonde", me and my mate knew he was bullshitting and we were half his age at the time.

Bowie lived as art. He didn't always hit. He missed big too - Murrayfield in 83 wasn't a great gig - but when he hit, it was uniquely compelling. There will never be another because he was the living embodiment of individuality and originality. Some of his music will last forever, it's that good.

I loved his continuous challenges to convention. He was wise beyond not just his years but beyond collective "wisdom". He saw things that even seriously talented musicians couldn't grasp until the masterpiece was complete.

Tarantino's use of Cat People, putting out fire in Inglourious B was one of the best uses of music in cinematography.

Was listening to Cat People this morning - great song.

Also listened to Wild is the Wind, Bowie said it was his greatest vocal performance. Well worth a listen for those who have never heard it before.
Title: Re: Celeb Deaths
Post by: rocket_scientist on January 12, 2016, 11:47:58 AM
I've listened to a lot of Bowie these last 24 hours (plus seen a lot of his interviews) but thanks for the reminder of Wild is the Wind, a song I had not heard for a good few years... until just now. It is indeed another very special work which once again proves the genius of the man. It was the earlier Hunky Dory when the star man first blew my mind.

There is one thing that David Cameron and I agree on. He described Bowie as a genius yesterday. The irony in that lizard serpent cunt declaring admiration for Bowie is heavy. There is a heavy odds-against chance that Cameron genuinely meant it whereas there is such a heavily odds-on chance that Bowie would have hated Cameron that the book may not even have been open to punters. If the bookies were right, and they usually are, then the question that needs to be explored is why Cameron said it? That leads to such an obvious possibility that that book would have been closed too.

Bowie's über-fans are singing all his songs in the street at Brixton. That bugs me. Not as much as Cameron's insincerity but it bugs me more than anything I consider a tolerable level. Faux grief comes in different ways and for different purposes. Look how much I loved Bowie, they say, but the PM does it to get down with the electorate and the vigil mentality folk do it to tell others that they were there, although some will be so obsessed that it masks the inadequacy of their own sad lives.

Seeing some of his interviews, I loved how nervous Chris Evans and Jonathan Ross were with Bowie. They were shitting themselves. Those two don't have any artistic talent of course but have managed to persuade TV executives to give them a career based only on their personalities. Hey, I quite like Evans and I think he is genuine at what he does and can be funny but he's a lightweight if we're talking art or anything of substance. In fact he's not even on the scale when it comes to artistic endeavour but watching how they felt so inadequate in front of a genuinely gifted human being, one who represented danger because of his nihilism and his antipathy towards them was beauty in essence. Ross is, of course, the king of twats but it's all about them, Ross and Evans. Their ego's have run unchecked for so long, fuelled by grossly-negotiated packages that they believe that they are their show, unlike Norton actually and unlike the great interviewers of yesteryear.

It was only his last 25 years when Bowie found himself as a person, well into his 40's. He was always highly intelligent but it was the coherence within him that didn't exist before. His ability to relate and discuss ideas in his latter years, particularly on Parkinson and with Paxman became razor sharp thanks to the simplicity and clarity of his faultless critical thinking.

EDIT: Bowie turned down a CBE and a knighthood. Imagine even offering a knighthood after he turned down the CBE? They just don't get it. Politicians aren't of the people and haven't been for decades leading to centuries.

Great post. Totally agree. Especially the chat show host bit, Ross is a man who stopped learning in his twenties. Shame, because he doesn't appear to be stupid.

To add, how do we know Cameron's feelings on the subject, and why are we supposed to give a shite? Listening to radio Scotland yesterday and in the morning they were announcing the death before announcing the Tweets in the same breath. It was almost as if Cameron and Sturgeon's thoughts on it were as important as the death itself. On the way home from work they'd moved to Kanye West and some ither cunt. None of whom you'd immediately think "I wonder how XXX feels about this", just a not-even-tenuous bunch of no-marks. It raises a serious and sinister question of how these required opinions are decided and on what merit. Who in the BBC chose Cameron's comments as pertinent to the death of Bowie and why (Sturgeon obviously a Tim/Hun style inclusion in that you can't give one coverage without the other)? It gives them both a free airing beyond their own merit and relevance - like free PR, or to give the illusion that either should be held in higher regard than the society below them. A bit like when changes are mentioned in Scottish fitba. We're immediately given the opinion of Delia (previously Lennon, who was consistently given a platform for his opinions) and some hun on the proposals as if their opinion should hold more weight.

Anyway, Bowie, loved a lot of his music and liked listening to him talk. Seemed a decent sort.

I was thinking about this yesterday when I heard exactly the sort of thing you're talking about there.  It's a default process for news programmes/stations now - we must have a reaction from social media and we must have the reaction from the rich and famous.

This was David Bowie though - an artist of great substance, whose work speaks for itself and has done for nigh on half a century, an icon, it would have been nice if they could have missed out the trite and lazy journalism this time.

There comes a time when music touches us all, was it the work of Angels or just blessed musicians.

Take Karen Carpenter. you will never find a more lovely voice ever. taken in her prime, Freddie mecury another iconic figure. Bowie, all these, i am Glad i am alive and loved to listen to them play!

Somewhat ironically their bes known hit was "All The Young Dudes" written by none other than David Bowie. So what better way to remember both of them than having a listen to this.

I wasn't lucky enough to see him play as he never played against AFC and that was before my brief period of watching Scotland. What game(s) did you see him in out of interest?

On the phone, I described him as the best European footballer ever to my daughter just now. He came up on the news and I just instinctively said that. On reflection, I think I might have been right. Can't think of too many contenders?

Feel dirty saying this but it was at Parkhead against The Victims in a European game (1982) I think it was.
Only went with a couple of mates as it was likely to be the only chance I would have to see him play.
In the twilight of his career, but still possessed a great footballing brain.

JC: Oh well, Johan was a wonnerful player. He really was

Reporter: and the last time you spoke to him?

JC: Big Johan, in training, just wonnerful. A lovely guy.

Reporter: so you spoke to him recently?

JC: he never spoke to me in the entire time I played in Holland, or since. I've never spoken to him. But I've heard him speaking. On the TV.

Zidane is the greatest European player of all time for my money. In fact, if i could pay to get into a match to see anyone play at their best, past or present, it would be to watch Zidane.

Cruyff is probably the coolest & most iconic player of all time; the number 14, the two stripes on his adidas Holland top as he was sponsored by Puma, passing the penalty to Jesper Olsen (?), having a turn named after him - and not a turn he invented, it just so happened he was the absolute best at it. 

He also had that classic self belief/arrogance required - Jan Molby said that when he joined Ajax, Cruyff was there in the twilight of his career but Molby hadn't seen him at training all week, then Cruyff strolls into the changing room before the match on the Saturday. Molby nervously introduced himself and Cruyff says; 'I'll give you one bit of advice. When you get the ball, give it to me because I'll be the best player on the park'.

The Guardian has a tribute to Cruyff today. Typically, they've used a picture of Robbie Rensenbrink to go with it...  ::)
Title: Re: Celeb Deaths
Post by: rocket_scientist on March 25, 2016, 07:37:38 PM
Great point. I asked this in the pub tonight. Platini was the best answer I got but we all forgot about Zizou.

Now that makes it a contest.

Cruyff did magic nobody ever saw previously. Nothing to do with romance and everything to do with inspiring others, I'll still go with Johan. Zidane wasn't necessarily as consistent in delivering excellence, bar a 12/18 month period of sublime sublimeness.

EDIT: This is an age thing. I wouldn't and couldn't argue against Puskas and Eusebio because I wasn't around to watch them play on the telly and read about them week in week out.

I was around for Cruyff though.
Title: Re: Celeb Deaths
Post by: BobbyBiscuit on March 25, 2016, 08:37:57 PM
I think with Zidane, for me anyway, we saw someone playing the game with a very distinct style which we maybe hadn't seen before (or certainly not seen a lot of), maybe Michael Laudrup to an extent.

I've not read the Guardian piece yet but just noticed it's by David Winner who wrote Brilliant Orange: The Neurotic Genius of Dutch Football, the best football book i've ever read, I would highly recommend it.  http://www.theguardian.com/football/2016/mar/25/johan-cruyff-father-modern-game-dutch

Agree about the age thing. The lack of footage etc is also a hindrance when trying to compare players and teams from different eras. The other thing is that everyone has their own idea of what a footballer should be.  Sticking with the Dutch theme, pretty much most commentators would say that out of the famous AC Milan Dutch trio van Basten and Gullit were the star turns - and they were exceptional players in their own right, but according to Arrigo Saachi and Franco Baresi, Frank Rijkaard was the best out the three of them.  But goals and forward players always dominate these things; I'm not sure that's right but that's a different argument altogether.

Two Ronnies were brilliant in their day.
Met Ronnie Corbett about fifteen years ago.
Was at the driving range one morning about 9am.
I was using third or fourth bay down and no one else there.
A particularly vertically challenged male suddenly appeared in bay number one, furiously hitting balls
After about ten minutes, said male walks over and asks me if I wanted the remaining half of his bucket of balls as he needed to leave for his tee time on Royal Troon. Despite this, he then proceeded to converse with me for a full ten minutes until his driver appeared in telling him they had to go.

What you saw was what you got, an absolute gentleman.
RIP Mr Corbett

His genius wasn't just fantastic tunes in his own inimitable style, his lyrics were pretty fantastic.

Example: -


"Sign O' The Times"

Oh yeah
In France a skinny man
Died of a big disease with a little name
By chance his girlfriend came across a needle
And soon she did the same
At home there are seventeen-year-old boys
And their idea of fun
Is being in a gang called The Disciples
High on crack, totin' a machine gun

Time, time

Hurricane Annie ripped the ceiling of a church
And killed everyone inside
U turn on the telly and every other story
Is tellin' U somebody died
Sister killed her baby cuz she could afford 2 feed it
And we're sending people 2 the moon
In September my cousin tried reefer 4 the very first time
Now he's doing horse, it's June

Times, times

It's silly, no?
When a rocket ship explodes
And everybody still wants 2 fly
Some say a man ain't happy
Unless a man truly dies
Oh why
Time, time

Baby make a speech, Star Wars fly
Neighbors just shine it on
But if a night falls and a bomb falls
Will anybody see the dawn
Time, times

It's silly, no?
When a rocket blows
And everybody still wants 2 fly
Some say a man ain't happy, truly
Until a man truly dies
Oh why, oh why, Sign O the Times

Time, time

Sign O the Times mess with your mind
Hurry before it's 2 late
Let's fall in love, get married, have a baby
We'll call him Nate... if it's a boy

Time, time

Time, time


This was from one of my favourite albums of all time. This title track, plus Cream, my favourite Prince singles.
Title: Re: Celeb Deaths
Post by: rocket_scientist on April 22, 2016, 08:54:03 AM
Another fine example, some of the lyrics from another genius tune: -

U're so good
Baby there ain't nobody better (Ain't nobody better)
So u should
Never, ever go by the letter (Never ever)
U're so cool (Cool)
Everything u do is success
Make the rules (Rules)
Then break them all cuz u are the best

Yes u are

Cream
Get on top
Cream
U will cop
Cream
Don't u stop
Cream
Sh-boogie bop

Look up in the air, it's your guitar

Do your dance
Why should u wait any longer?
Take a chance
It could only make u stronger
It's your time (It's your time)
U got the horn so why don't u blow it (Go on and blow it)
U're so fine (U're so fine)
U're filthy cute and baby u know it (U know it)


RIP Prince

I put money in his pocket. Never saw him live but bought one of his albums 25 or 30 years ago.

Couldn't listen to him now. His music got tired after a while but I recognise his genius.

I love you in a place where there's no space or time
I love you for in my life you are a friend of mine
And when my life is over
Remember when we were together
We were alone and I was singing this song for you
We were alone and I was singing this song for you


Leon Russell - Aged 74

Just love this song
Written by Leon and recorded by so so many including a favourite of mine the late great Donny Hathaway :thumbsup:

We should have a minute's applause in the 22nd minute in memory of the £2.2M the huns spanked on him to sit on their treatment table. Although I'm surprised that anyone who spent two and a half years living in Glasgow lived until 44.

I am reminded of the great Wilco Johnson and what he said about the music scene in the mid 70's, specifically the genre that became known as prog rock. It was inaccessible to most and was never of the people nor for the people. We have those type of "musicians" to thank for creating the vacuum that punk blew apart. Even today, some of the innovative music being produced has the second half of the 70's to thank for showing what was possible.

An easy target to have a go at, but the thing is they don't have any real artistic pretentions they just made music and had a good few hits which will still be playing long after we are pushing up the daisys.

As guffs go he always seemed to me to be at the more acceptable end of the range.

Never forget the documentary shown about 10 years ago where they followed his final couple of years as Guffland manager. The bit where he says "Do I not like that" just seconds before oppo team score is hilarious but the best bit was watching that utter wankstain Phil Neal having to get his tongue surgically removed from Taylor's hoop having said "yes boss" to every single thing that Taylor said.

The man was utterly insane in my opinion. His wife was officially a starter motor short of ignition and he had her locked up, their son died of sexual asphyxiation but he was a sad old man, married to the pursuit of the dollar and a creature strangled by routine and devoid of any fresh thinking.

They're nae affectionately known as "Arnold Shark" for nothing! I've had the same experiences when dealing with my partner's car. When she bought her car it came with 2 years free MOTs so a year later we booked it in and low and behold this "free" MOT had turned up about £300 worth of supposedly required repairs. I know some basics about cars. I'm not an expert or anything but I'm not a complete mug either so I told them not to do the work and I took the car for a £45 MOT at Granite City Motors at Muggiemoss and it passed with the cost of an hour's labour (to strip and clean the rear brakes as opposed to the lengthy list of parts that Arnold Clark wanted to replace). When they phoned a year later asking when we wanted to come in for our next MOT they were telt where to go.

I worked for John Clark for a while and working with salesmen was easily worse than dealing with some of the oil wankers and civil servant arseholes that I've dealt with since. 99 out of a 100 of the cunts are corrupt and mentally ill.

The specific reason why they're sick in the head is they spend every minute of every day trying to rip money out of the pockets of the public. A by-product of John Clark's mental illness manifested/manifests itself in an extraordinary case of OCD.

Does anyone still deal with car dealers any more? Certainly never for new cars.

I did for my last car but I used www.carwow.com which meant there was no salesman actively trying to sell to me and that a deal was agreed before we ever met face to face. All the salesman did was the handover when I went to collect. Would definitely use carwow.com again.

I got offered a few good prices on there (although not locally unfortunately) and I went to Lawrence of Kemnay and asked them to price match (as they're my closest dealer) but they boy, for whatever reason refused so I then arranged to go to Glasgow. The next day LoK emailed me and offered me a shite excuse and an even worse discount at which point I told them that I can't take their offer seriously if they weren't going to take me seriously. I actually found that a lot whilst looking at cars. Because I look in my 20s they all assumed I couldn't afford a new car and I'd be treated as a time waster. I find dealing with car sales/dealerships on any level fucking nauseating.

I meant does anyone negotiate with dealers any more. I went to Bolton to pick up a new car last September. The internet is a wonderful thing. I offered the same deal locally but they couldn't get within a grand. For a couple of hundred quid fine but I'm not pissing away that much. Don't know if it's true because I've never actually bought from an Aberdeen dealer ever but with the amount of money in the city, I get the impression they have been used to getting maximum premium margins. The NE public have been paying over the odds for years.

Don't know if it's true because I've never actually bought from an Aberdeen dealer ever but with the amount of money in the city, I get the impression they have been used to getting maximum premium margins. The NE public have been paying over the odds for years.

I bet folk still do, aye. And dealers are still more than happy to dick you about and waste your time as well as their own despite the business they must be losing because of the internet. Spastics.

For the savings I was being offered I was willing to travel. I went to just south of Glasgow but could have went a bit further (Leicester) to saves a few hundred quid more as well. All LoK offered me was £800 odd off of the RRP.

Let me tell you how this begins and ends. Trust me, I have experience.

People like you are intimidated by people like me.

You're right, totally, I am an arrogant cunt. In the world that you live in. Not disputing it.

But the world you inhabit isn't the same world we all inhabit.

Half of us are above average and half of us are below. In everything. Love, wealth, intellect, happiness, emotional well-being, generosity, philanthropy, relationships, arrogance, sickness, vindictiveness, wisdom, football knowledge, capacity to murder, being mean, we are all either above or below the mean.

Don't poke what you don't understand. There's a chance it might kick your cunt in.

You're the one who starts with the infantile confrontation, now you're apologising and want to end it?

Like McInnes, you need to make better decisions and stick with it.

I advocated AFC chat to you before. I strongly recommend that you try it. You will find like-minded posters who also don't like reading books. Nobody there will rip the piss out of you. You'll fit in.

That's actually thought provoking. I don't know if you intended it to be, or whether it was given as another infantile insult but it is.

I'm not sure it's possible for a sane human being to like being hated. However I made no claim to sanity and therefore I would be thoroughly upset if people like you didn't hate people like me.

Al, to be fair to the cunt, it's not his fault. He doesn't behave like that to any other poster and I enjoy his rants so it's not me you're protecting. Ach let him be.

The truth is that him and I couldn't be more polar opposite. It's quite a beautiful dichotomy really, the Aussie prison warden and the long term Scottish prisoner in an English HMP. I've been incarcerated for a total of 24 years of my life, am coming up soon for half my total life inside and have zero chance of parole this time, having done 14 straight. I'll die here. He has everything to live for in a wonderful country surrounded by beautiful people. There's nothing more different than us.

Even the reverse transference was beautiful. It's not us inmates who are hated but we all hate the screws. Apart from Jim (who's a Scot), he's a decent man.

You may be interested to know that BBC, ITV and Channel 4 ran pieces on Mark E Smith in their national news.

You might also want to revise your thinking more than your words. Just because you don't appreciate nor understand the artist or his work, those of us who do should not be subjected to your insults as a consequence.

It was stated earlier by you that you can tell a person's character from their music taste. Not only is this the stupidest statement on AFC webchatspeaksite history, we learn more about your character, mindset and outlook when you make ignorant pronouncements like this.

I don’t get that argument about what you do to the people left to deal. It’s absolutely awful that someone is in such a bad/messed up place that they take their own life, kill the self, end it all. And people wonder why they didn’t think of others??? Someone about to kill the self is in the darkest place, they’re not on a place where they can consider others. It’s that bad. It’s certainly bad for those left to deal but the argument for suicide being selfish or not considering others isn’t valid.

Writer and performer of the best 12" club track ever (and dirtiest too)

Young eens if you have never heard it (or of it) look up Homosapien......was played for years in every club throughout the land in the early to late 80s

Was openly bisexual (supposedly went 100% gay in later years)......the song as you have probably gathered is all about gay sex but far more explicit than FGTH's "Relax". He was totally effeminate in a punk band.....brave thing to do in the late 70s.

Shelley was a great musician and a man of courage. Orgasm Addict was innovative. Spiral Scratch was an excellent debut piece of art.

As for sex being a "right", that's confused thinking. It's a desire, not a right. It's the most powerful driver in any man who's not wired wrong but describing it as a right fails to appreciate that it needs consenting partners. You sound a bit rapey, rumpus real. Then again, with your wanking off men and involving male voyeurs, you don't know what you are.

Edit: I see your trash has now been deleted.

Saw that story and personally object to the 'cheating the taxman' angle. Finally marrying your partner of 40years 2 days before you peg it so she actually inherits your estate rather than losing 40% to the Government is not 'cheating the taxman'

Only remember him towards the end of his career, never struck me as being anything special. His protege at Leicester was Shilton who turned out to be phenomenal.

As an aside, my old man told me that Scotland were 100% behind England in '66 but that the non stop mentioning their win ( achieved by never leaving Wembley throughout the competition) at every available opportunity was what turned out support's stomachs and led to the ABE mindset by the mid 70s

Don't believe that for a second.

A) He certainly did tell me that

B) I can believe it. I was born 6 months after that victory. People of my generation therefore were either very young or still to be born. Those that were adults either lived (possibly fought in) through the second world war or were born during or just after. Scots fought alongside English, Welsh and Irish against a common for and the sense of togetherness would still be felt in the mid sixties in a UK still really recovering from the ravages of a war that only ended 21 years previous.

It's kind of shown by the result of the referendum in 2014. The over 65s who lived through or were born just after the war were overwhelmingly No voters. The UK has been good for them since and they'll never change their mindset.

I don't disbelieve that you were told that and I don't disbelieve that he believed what he was telling you himself. I'm nae calling anyone a liar or anything. I just don't believe that Scots were "100% behind the English" in a football tournament and I don't really buy that the wars had any real impact on support levels or that the 2014 failure of the Scottish electorate backs up the claim in any way. I have no doubt that some may have supported England but that number would've been a long way from 100%. I'd be surprised if it was above 50%. Many of the no voting cunts that I have the misfortune of seeing on Twitter were the same folk that give it "Anyone but England!" during a football tournament. The Pensioners voted No because they were told they'd lose their pensions. Not because they felt a togetherness with England or the rest of the UK.

Aye I was even younger when Python first aired so didn't really get it but watched the repeats in the mid 80s and realised just what geniuses they all were. Would never be allowed nowadays of course. Utterly un-PC, the snowflake generation would have a collective heart attack at some of the stuff they did.

Funnily enough it some of it 'wasn't allowed' back then

The film you quoted was still actually banned from cinemas in certain parts of the UK until 2008.

Theres alot being said about the snowflake generation in terms of being 'too pc' but a quick look at what is considered acceptable in films and TV now compared to the even the mid 90s and its alot more tolerant and open than reported especially when it comes to questioning religion. Have you seen any calls for the pythons etc to be banned by the snowflakes?

What has (or was) been disappearing is the blatant racism, misogyny etc which was considered wholesome family entertainment however I suspect that will soon return to the screens given the current political climate.

And yet if you were to watch Not the Nine O'Clock News which brought the nascent Alternative comedy scene (and supposedly bringing an end to the "offensive" dinosaurs of comedy)  to a mainstream television audience, you would see countless sketches containing the blatant racism and misogyny that they purported to consign to the dustbin. Ah but it was all ironically...…… oh well that's all right then

Ah but it was all ironically...…… oh well that's all right then

Not sure what you are getting at with the NTNOCN reference, a programme which is not exactly top of the list when it came to repears on the mainstream BBC perhaps for the reasons you suggest, whereas my first introduction to the Pythons was on Friday nights in the mid 1990s followed by borrowing videos of the films.

I believe the first time I actually saw NTNOCN was on UKgold, a channel with a name that either breaches the Trades description act, or is sadly all too accurate.

I'd say its more likely the snowflake generation would welcome the Pythons if they started now as the humour is surrealist. The Mighty Boosh is the only 'modern' programme I can think of that followed a similar premise.

The Not the nine o clock news lot may claim credit for the alternative comedy malarky but there are plenty of comics from around about the same generation who will disagree.
Mark Steel certainly has some things to say about the hypocracy of Ben Elton and co.
