    Academic Footnotes

    Problem with most academics is they tend to disapeer when they get old or retire, so hard to tell what health they are in. For my contributions Stuart Hall (not the It's a Knockout one though they are about they are about the same age) comes to mind as he hasn't done anything in a while. Harold Bloom is 80 now and particulalry noted for his various pretensions. Also, someone who mentioned before on here who is surprisingly still alive, Christian theologian John Hick is now 88. Most of the original Post-structuralists are already dead, but on other philosophers, Jurgan Habermass is probably one of the most famous still alive and is now 81 but still occasionally pops in the media. Hiliary Putnamn is 84 but still a professor (dunno how active) at Harvard. Gore Vidal seems to make less appearances than he used to these days and say even more ridicilous things when he does and at 85 could be a decent outside bet. Doris Lessing is 91 though one a literary prize in 2007. Unfortunatly I have go and read some these people in a studenty capacity but it is an awful good way to waste time on Wikipedia if anyones interested.

    Brittany Murphy

    I knew her only as the voice of Luanne in King Of The Hill, didn't know she was actually a real actress who was aparently in quite a few films I've seen. Can be very educational this death thing.

    Michael Jackson

    While the media coverage is a touch ridiculous/ghoulish its hard to imagine Bill O'Reilly as a voice of common sense. His bizarre anti-media rants seem to pertain more to himself than anyone else. He has made a bigger deal out of race by claiming everyone else has made a big deal out of race (they havn't really). Although interestingly there was little concern about the sancity of media when he and his channel endlessly reported the death of talentless, micro-celebrity Anna-Nicole Smith who was, as I recall, white. But back on the Micheal Jackson death front,the website that first reported him dead are now claiming he was murdered

    Ideas and Possibilities for 2010

    One highly possible candidate I stumbled upon: the oldest sitting member of the House of Lord's, the 97 year old Baron Glenamara. Hasn't voted since 2001 on anything. Good old British democracy. A former labour minister under Harold Wilson and was aparantly notorious as the Postmaster General who went after offshore pirate radio stations, so should definitly get an obit. I also came across a Lord Carrington, the longest sitting Lord-been there since 1945-but at a mere 90 and with a few speechs in the last year is probably a less likly candidate.

    David Irving

    Got me wondering for no real reason if indeed David Irving is up to anything these days-Google news seach suggests nothing too high profile or unexpected. Meeting with Nick Griffen and writing an abusive, barely comprehensible racist email to Jewish Times columist Daniel Finklestien. Par for the course really. He's email address seems to be on that page so if you feel like asking him if he's likley to die soon theres fresh info to be had.

    Robbie Williams

    Robbie's becoming the Howard Hughes of the 21st century. The prodigious early success, a mother complex, the "Hollywood" years, dating all kinds of famous women, a James Bond tie-in, rumours of homosexuality, drug abuse, and the descent into madness featuring a strange beard and spending time in Nevada. Just watched the Aviator and was looking through Hughes page on Wikipedia and thinking it would make an interesting deathlist thread, and be interesting in general, if there was 21st Century Howard Hughes. First thread I open and there's the very possibility. Of course, its difficult to will someone to become a mentally ill recluse, not to mention a touch morally dubious. Gotta be the obvious candidate though.

    The Sixth 2008 Success Poll

    Alexander Solzhenitsyn, thought it was time for someone I'd heard of before joining Deathlist, well I'd heard of Hilary but this one should get a bit of attention anyway. And I seem to remember an article suggesting he was dying over a year ago.

    Death By Jazz

    Apologies, was news to me on the 24th. Think of it as making the jazz thread more comprehensive.

    Ideas And Possibilities For 2009

    The last surviving member of Argentina's 1930 world cup squad Francisco Varallo has been in the news latley (OK the odd bit of obscure football news). Now 98 his record as top scorer for Boca Juniors is under threat, although he claims he scored 15 more than offical records show.

    Amy Winehouse

    Amy has months to live says husband. I suppose you can interpret that as etheir nasty story selling antics or a genuine plea to his wife to stop using lots and lots of drugs. Seems a bit harsh to conclude that the grubby looking person who doesn't like being chased by paperazzi is the cause of all problems though.

    World War I Veteran(s)

    If theres only 28 if them, it wouldn't be impossible for them all to die in 2008. Its amazing enough to think they are alive 91 years after the war ended. And considering must countries are down to one or two, most of them would get an obit somewhere.

    Ariel Sharon

    People, and I'm primairly thinking of the not exactly Jew friendly guest, seem to forget a life support machine doesn't make you immortal. In fact its usually a pretty good sign your in poor health. But even if he wasn't in a coma, he'd be a great candidate, he's over 80, overweight and alot of people fervently wish him to die.
