    Death Anniversary Thread

    I make no apologies for quoting myself. It is still very much the forgotten disaster.

    The Happy Birthday Thread

    Julia Foster is 77 today Madeline Smith is 71 Not sure if either are potential DL material but they both feel like possible future Deaths of the Silver Screen choices.
  3. I love Kandinsky as well. I also like Chagal, Klimt, and maybe a bit predictably I like the pre- Raphaelites. I don't know whether it's because I have a long face, but I've always been rather fond of Modigliani's work.

    Clint Eastwood

    I remember seeing that too. In fact it's usually what I first think of whenever I see Judi Dench on anything.

    Musings on Life Expectancy

    Two of my grandparents were adopted , my dad's mum and my mum's dad so there a lot of unknowns. Those I do know Mum - currently still here aged 80 Dad - died earlier this year aged 90 Maternal grandparents, maternal grandfather died before I was born aged 68 from throat cancer, maternal grandmother died aged 91 from pleurisy. Paternal grandparents - paternal gd died aged 85 and paternal gm aged 81 both from pneumonia. great grandparents - no clue on my dad's side. On my mum's a real mix, her dad was adopted but we do know who his parents were. His mum died aged 30 about a year after giving birth and his dad died aged 25 in the Boer war. Maternal nan's dad also died fairly young aged 45 of heart disease but her mum lived until her 80s. After that the only ones I know about are my maternal nan's maternal grandparents. Ggm died aged 53 apparently from a laudanum overdose, her husband died aged 75 don't the cause. In addition all my nan's siblings bar one lived at least until their 80s. So it's a real mixed bag for me.

    He does nothing for me either. He looks how I imagine an alien would. I would have been at Manchester University the same time he was there though I doubt we would have moved in the same circles. Dame Diana Rigg is 82 today.

    Deathlisters who are dead

    I'm not commenting on my family, but I have outlived one Deathlist hit, namely Helen Rollason. If I am still around at the end of next year I will have outlived John Curry too.

    A Joke

    Two JFK conspiracy theorists die and go to heaven. They finally ask God to once and for all settle for them who it was that killed JFK. God sighs and patiently and lovingly admonishes them, "You've spent so much of your lives chasing after this conspiracy. You've sacrificed time with your families, allowed yourselves to be overcome by paranoia. You've wasted so much of the time and energy that I gave you. Oswald killed Kennedy. He was acting on his own and all of the evidence you needed to satisfy yourselves of that was there the whole time, if only you had looked with open hearts and minds." The one conspiracy theorist turns to the other and whispers, "This goes higher than we thought."

    Deathlisters who are dead

    Are you thinking of DeathList Observer? His 'son' comes on to tell us he died but I don't thin any of us believed him.

    Deathlisters who are dead

    I have a vague recollection of that too. I think they posted a lot for a short amount of time then suddenly stopped. @Lard Bazaar Carol Anne is still around on Facebook.

    Dying Off The Radar

    Heart attack I think I read somewhere, though that could have been caused by drugs.

    Dying Off The Radar

    I have never heard of her, or them, but it seems Alex Taylor of The Shop Assistants died in 2005 and it's only just been reported. https://www.backseatmafia.com/news-shop-assistants-singer-reported-to-have-died/
  18. My dad at his first communion. He was Catholic, I am not. We didn't actually know this picture existed until last year as he was always very secretive about his childhood.

    Deathlist Dreaming

    Last night I dreamt that Prince Charles announced he would like to be known as Wednesday III on becoming king which prompted a lot of speculation about his sanity. Well it would rather wouldn't it?

    Derby Dead Pool 2020

    Yep. I should have revived my M*A*S*H theme team and not my Hitchcock one.

    Alan Alda

    He's still all there, check out the interview in my message above, but his age/mortality seems to be on his mind.
  24. I don't know about that but my mum has steel pins in her lower leg and they don't ping. I think she was quite disappointed. I always wonder if people who wear wigs have to take them off before going through security.
