Did you find out anything new?
Have to admit I had to google myself, although the name was familiar

I always enjoyed that show.

I like this! I now have a tiny little Abe Vigoda at the bottom of my Mozilla browser, smiling up at me. No idea who he is, but I know that he's alive.
I was looking at extensions for Mozilla Firefox and I came across this: https://addons.mozil...numpg=10&id=451 Of course I thought of all the sick bastards here waiting for him to die. And I mean that as a compliment. Anyway, if you use Firefox, it lets you know his status in the bar at the bottom of the browser window. Fun!
Wouldn't it be great if the DL offered something like this? Like, you could choose one candidate from the current list and have them at the bottom of your browser, so every time it was open there they'd be, providing you with their very own up-to-the-minute status report.
I wonder who I would choose...

Rather unfortunately, it would appear that this add-in is no longer available. I thoroughly enjoyed having it at the bottom of my browser, but said browser suffered a mini-meltdown last year and no longer do I have a tiny Abe smiling up at me.

However 1) I now know who he is, and 2) he's on my DDP team.

More pertinent to us, he's been the subject of a celebrated web page for years that simply displays a picture and informs the world of his continued existence. Rather like Clive Dunn's perpetual listing in our DL this is ironic humour that - kind of - celebrates his death and his life at one and the same time. The people behind the stunt have www.abevigoda.com as well and you can enjoy their song - Abe Vigoda's Dead - on the page.
Maryport is a disappointment for which there is no cure, but the annual Deathrace thread hereabouts provides welcome distraction.

I'm not happy about this selection, He should live well into his 90s. He appears regularly on the American talk show "Late Night with Conan O'Brien" as an extra, and looks great for his age. He still has great wit and a good sense of humor. This guy will easily survive the year. There are lots of 85 year olds in worse shape that should have been selected.
