    Jeanette Krankie (again, "retired" from Panto...)
    Siouxsie Sioux (I hope she's just retired and loving life but, y'know...one worries)

    @octophone I occasionally find myself wondering how on earth Siouxsie is. When and where was she last seen? I expect she’s quite busy with her French dungeon or doing clever things with batik *dies tomorrow*

    Also, I’d not entirely put it past the P-Orridge to make up a load of flannel for attention and a few extra quid... :side-eye:

    Did you read Cosey's book? GP-O come across as an award-winning bastard, a psychopath and an abuser.

    I did! Cover to cover (for once). Yes, he sounded absolutely dire to say the VERY least. Actually I realised via reading the book that their erstwhile Hackney abode is mere moments from where I live so I popped round to have a look the other week. No nude modelling or blood-letting in evidence, disappointingly :(

    I think Phil will be kept alive until the day after his 100th Birthday.

    I'm still laughing at the message my sister sent me Xmas Eve...

    I said: "Gonna watch Her Maj just to see how she deals with Andrew in her speech. Or more accurately, how she swerves it. Bit morbid but hey."

    She replied: "It's going to miss out Phil dying as well cos I assume it was filmed before the fucking Weekend at Bernie's shit they've just pulled with his stuffed corpse".

    I see that Ag and Indie both have three centenarians. Have we changed the rules or do I need to call for a steward's enquiry?

    Not the start I wanted but grimly inevitable.

    As Alla says, Kirk Douglas and Vera Lynn. Katherine Johnson is also over 100, unless there is another one.

    I don't think we have any choice other than to consider your entire list as provisional until corrected, meaning that any deaths up to date wouldn't count. It's the only fair way. :)

    I prepared a list last night but didn't post it. I'm going to have to amend as it had Nicholas FUCKING Parsons on it.
