Billy Connolly and Margaret Thatcher both trending on Twitter which was a tad worrying. Fortunately Billy is still very much alive and the witch is still dead.

Week 32 update

Two deaths this week. Up first is the wrestler James "Kamala" Harris: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-53720494

Last year when I ran this competition for the first time I was amazed by all the wrestlers that people were throwing in. I'm not going to kid on I know who this guy is or was, but this Bleacher Report look at his life - from childhood, to stardom, to a diabetic double amputee in a wheelchair - is quite the read. Definitely worth ten minutes of your time.

Harris died at 70, so he's worth 55 Base Points. He was a Deadly Duo pick for @Meden89 and @sjc for a total of 80 points each.

==================

Second death this week was the classical guitarist Julian Bream: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2020/aug/14/julian-bream-british-classical-guitarist-dies-aged-87

Quote

Julian Bream, the British guitarist regarded as one of the finest exponents of the classical style, has died aged 87. The news was confirmed by his management company, who said he died “peacefully at home”. No cause of death was given.

Bream was born in Battersea in 1933, the son of a father who played piano and jazz guitar – a self-built electric version – and taught Julian the rudiments of each instrument. Bream’s talent earned him a scholarship at the Royal College of Music, where he studied piano and cello. But he was largely self-taught on his primary instrument, the guitar. He played his first public guitar recital in Cheltenham in 1947, aged 13.

That year his father chanced upon a sailor walking through London carrying a lute and asked what it was. The sailor sold it to him and Bream began learning it, eventually helping to revive wider interest in the instrument and Elizabethan music.

Let's have a listen:

Get this guy a distortion pedal and watch him shred, I say.

Bream died at 87, so he's worth 38 Base Points. He was a Solo Shot and a Vice-Captain for @50/50 Winner 2.0 (who himself seems to have died at some point this year), so he's worth a total of 109 points.

I think he was trying to orca-strate a round of sympathy, but obviously a mob of callous, indifferent deadpoolers like you aren't going to blubber over a dying z-list disk jockey.
