Jesus I can't believe I got the name wrong there - so sorry as others have said John Paul Leon. So disrespectful of me and I'm very sorry.

My only excuse was Tommy Lee Edwards started that GoFund me - but still.

Hardly disrespectful - just a minor mistake.

Hearing Richard Halliwell, the designer of Warhamer, Space Hulk, Dark Future and of course Block Mania, among others, has passed away.
A big chunk of my formative years was influenced by his work. Sad times.
You're a dark horse, Boots.

tweet from fellow gaming luminary Graeme Davis

Quote from: Graeme-Davis
Richard Halliwell is no longer with us. One of #Warhammer's creators, plus #SpaceHulk, #DarkFuture, and more.
To say Hal was a personality is an understatement.  I think of him as the British games industry's very own Crazy Diamond. Shine on, Hal.

I, Cosh

Behind the times, but Anita Lane died last week. Best known for colloborations with Nick Cave and assorted Bad Seeds, you can also give her own records a listen.
We never really die.

Billy Hayes 'Witchiepoo' in the Pufnstuf TV series has met her Waterloo. It was the most bonkers TV series ever made and only lasted a season.

Kentaro Miura, writer and artist of Berserk (amongst other things) has passed away. I guess that's one saga that will never be completed.

Absolutely devastating. Berserk has been one of the best comics of any genre, of any corner of the globe, for decades now. An absolute giant of the medium gone way, way too soon. RIP king.

My daughter's parakeet, Elvie, who liked landing on heads, pooping on heads, playing the "catch the finger-snake" game, burbling along to television shows, nibbling our teeth, chatting to her mirror friends and rattling her disco ball.

Barney Curley, an Irish professional gambler, philanthropist behind a charity for impoverished children in Zambia, former trainer, former Jesuit seminarian, failed pub owner, former pop group manager, entrepreneur and the man behind the Yellow Sam betting coup.

Wikipedia has a decent summary of it HERE, but doesn't get into how almost impossible it would have been to even coordinate such a thing in Ireland in the 70s without mobile phones or the internet. At the same time it would be completely impossible to pull off now because of mobile phones and the internet.

Quote
Since nothing about the coup had been illegal, the bookmakers were forced to pay out the full IR£300,000 (>€1.7m adjusted for inflation). They did, however, pay out the winnings in single notes, filling 108 bags
You may quote me on that.
