    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    I logged in to inform you & all the dear people who liked your post, that Ed Sheeran is "at the other side" of his battle with Covid. He drank a lot of water, slept a lot & took all the vitamines his doctor told him to take. Ed Sheeran reveals he's 'at the other side' of his battle with Covid | Daily Mail Online

    Very surprised. I didn't think that Marshall would leave the hospital alive. Wishing him all the best, of course.

    Notable Coronavirus Victims

    Nobody mentioned that Ed Sheeran tested positive for Covid & is self-isolating. BBC News (World) on Twitter: "Ed Sheeran tests positive for Covid-19 https://t.co/YxKk0sWO6p" / Twitter
  5. It will only get worse, since a higher proportion of the population is infected & new mutations are discovered every other month. And I bet that the vaccine will kill a lot of very old & weak persons as well.

    Christopher Plummer

    Anthony Jeselnik on Twitter: "First time anyone wanted to replace Christopher Plummer with Kevin Spacey." / Twitter Leachman, Tyson, Holbrook & now Plummer. This year will be a rerun of 1982, when lots of famous actors - Romy Schneider, Grace Kelly, Ingrid Bergman etc. - died.

    Shadow Lists

    What the heck motivated me to fill my shadow list with the names of painters, writers & opera singers? In the meantime show people are dying like flies. Larry King, Cloris Leachman, Cicely Tyson... At the end of the year, the members of this committee will probably pat themselves on the shoulder for having included Lansbury, White, Redgrave & Co.

    Faye Dunaway

    Dunaway, Richard Chamberlain, O.J. Simpson, Robert Wagner, Susan Flannery, Dabney Coleman... Who would have thought, that these 1970ies disaster movies would serve some useful purpose at last?

    Faye Dunaway

    Good thread. i condidered submitting "Bonnie & Clyde" to the "Deaths of the Silver Screen" deadpool: Gene Hackman & Estelle Parsons had supporting parts in this movie & I appreciate the chance of snatching Warren Beatty & Dunaway from life.

    Prince Philip Duke Of Edinburgh

    I was curious, because I want the best vaccine for myself (of course) & but it's still unclear how well AstraZeneca works in people over 55. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2020-12-08/astra-vaccine-is-effective-but-leaves-questions-in-older-ages

    I'd like to know which vaccine the Royals received. Moderna, Pfitzer, or AstraZeneca?

    How is David Berkowitz (Son of Sam) doing these days? He's just a year younger than Harvey Weinstein.

    Can't sleep. Just watching an old favorite: "Die unentschuldigte Stunde" (1957). Chariklia Baxevanos (1936) is still alive. https://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chariklia_Baxevanos Edit: I don't want to fill this thread with spam, so I will write the names I find in this posting: Gerlinde Locker (1938) is also alive.

    James Bond 007 (Connery/Moore/Villains etc)

    Very sad news. He directed some of my favorite films, like "Gorky Park" & "Gorillas in the mist". Many tears will be shed this year. All those beloved celebrities born in the 1930ies are now over 80.

    From Cleric To Relic

    There has been some outrage in Austria, because cardinal Christoph Schönborn (1945) has received a vaccination against Covid sooner than most 80+ year olds, who are forced to wait until March & probably longer. He has been diagnosed with prostate cancer two years ago, though.

    Hardy Krüger (1928) & Arik Brauer (1929) ought to be on next year's list.

    Who Should Make The Deathlist In 2021?

    Who should make the deathlist in 2021? Those wicked celebrities who plan to announce the truth about their health just one or two days after the deathlist is published. Same procedure as last time.
