  1. think about it. 1.) The pandemic appears to be on the wane, and doctors are now saying things can get back to normal as early as APRIL, and definitely by summer... 2.) Tiger Woods and Ashley Judd both had near death experienced and survived. Both were almost swallowed by the jaws of death. Could their recovery mirror 2021? If this were 2020, both would have died and joined the ranks of Kobe Bryant and Naya Rivera. If 2020 was the year of death, 2021 is the year of recovery and comebacks... And 2022 will be the year of hedonism and good times... Maybe some force out there is saying, "okay, we killed enough young celebrities. I will spare Tiger Woods and Ashley Judd, and hope humanity can follow their steps and move on the path towards recovery." 3.) New Jersey just legalized weed. Fans can now attend sporting events in New York. Theaters in West End will open soon, and Broadway is likely to follow... So no matter what, 2021 is already a better year.

    Hospitalised!

    If this were 2020, both Ashley Judd and Tiger Woods would not have made it. already 2021 is an improvement. Less people dying of COVID, NJ legalized weed, and not as many young celebrities dying...

    Demi Lovato

    I've always predicted a tragic early death for Britney Spears, as far back as 2007. She's still struggling, but has lasted this long. We'll see. Demi Lovato is one to look out for as well. I pegged Lovato, Britney Spears, and Lindsay Lohan as the most likely "shocking" young death. So far in 2021, only one major celebrity died young (Dustin Diamond), and even he really wasn't that well known except for those who grew up in the late 80s/early 90s. Or we will see a random young celebrity die of a drug overdose or suicide, probably a musician or actor. Maybe even Shia LaBeouf or Kanye West. We are due for a "shocking" young celebrity death soon.

    People Who Are Dead According To Wikipedia...

    Holbrook died on January 23 of this year, right around the time the person mentioned it on his wikipedia page. It probably was somebody who was privy to Holbrook's passing (maybe even somebody who worked for his agent), but was told not to say anything until a formal announcement was made, so hence that person took it down.

    Most Significant Death Of Each Month

    And....i totally jinxed it! First major young celebrity to die this year is none other than Screech himself, Dustin Diamond. https://variety.com/2021/tv/news/dustin-diamond-dead-saved-by-the-bell-screech-1234897484/

    Most Significant Death Of Each Month

    I'm an old timer, so I know very little about these Generation Z hip hop artists... You might as well be speaking hieroglyphics to me when talking about hip hop and rap music nowadays. I grew up in the era of B.I.G., Public Enemy, and 2Pac, so I'm considered "old" to these young'ins... Put it this way, Kurt Cobain is as relevant to them as Buddy Holly was to me...

    Most Significant Death Of Each Month

    I don't think Sophie's all that well known? At least not in America...hardly social media is talking about her death... Young artists who are well known get their names flooded on the likes of Twitter, but hardly any young people (at least in America) are mentioning her. Juice WRLD for example, Twitter and social media feeds blew up when he died. Even Smoke Pop (another rapper) got a lot of love on social media when he died. Then again, in America, young people tend to gravitate towards hip hop and EDM, with young white people in the rural midwest and south gravitating towards country...

    Most Significant Death Of Each Month

    January: Larry King and Hank Aaron. Aaron is considered one of the most well known baseball players ever. We also lost Cicely Tyson, Cloris Leachman, and Phil Spector. but unlike in years past, so far, all the major celebrities we've lost were old timers. We haven't lost any major young celebrities in January, so maybe it's a sign that 2021 is better already...granted the bar is low... Or not...now that there's some crazy shit going on in Myanmar...

    James Bond 007 (Connery/Moore/Villains etc)

    I think 1949 is the more accurate year. Tanya has been in show business since the early 70s, so it would have been more realistic if she were in her late teens and early 20s when she started out. She had a starring role in the 1975 horror movie Forced Entry, so it makes sense she was 25-26 years old, at the time and not 19-20. It's not uncommon for celebrities to shave a few years off their birthdate to give the appearance of youth. For example, I've heard persistent rumors that Beyonce Knowles was actually born in the mid to late 1970s (between 1975 to 1978), and not 1981. And quite frankly, it wouldn't shock me if she were born in 1978 or even 1975, and not 1981. I mean Beyonce was making music since the mid-1990s, and I remember how I always thought she looked "mature" for her age (despite her and I being born just a couple months apart). Put it this way, when I watched her in music videos during her Destiny's Child days, she did NOT look like she was 15 or 16 years old! https://www.huffpost.com/entry/beyonce-age-mathew-knowles_n_56253265e4b0bce347018e14 Jessica Chastain and Rebel Wilson also fudged their ages. Jessica always claimed to be born in late 1981, when it turns out she was born in 1977. She graduated from acting school in her mid to late 20s, so that's why she got away with it for some time. And Rebel Wilson was born in 1980, not 1986 or 1988!

    It's only mid-January so far, though I agree Phil Spector has been the biggest name to date... I would add Barbara Shelley as well. She's considered the original Scream Queen and Hammer's most famous leading lady! And though she's not really mainstream, Julie Strain's death hit me hard. For those of a certain age, we grew up watching Julie Strain's movies on cable, and she was a Goddess!

    Dustin Diamond

    One to look out for. And far too young, sadly.

    The Stars Of B-cinema

    I am hearing mixed messages, with some claiming that it's just another cruel hoax, and supposedly two close family friends have confirmed her passing. No formal announcement though, and I'm not sure why. You'd think her boyfriend would clear the air by now, but hasn't. It happened exactly the same time last year, but her boyfriend didn't clear up the rumors until hours later. I hope her boyfriend sets the record straight, even if she has indeed passed on.

    James Bond 007 (Connery/Moore/Villains etc)

    Yup, and that will likely sum up 2021 as well. Things turn bleak, then things appear to be on the upswing, and then everything goes downhill again....

    James Bond 007 (Connery/Moore/Villains etc)

    As bizarre as this may seem, I think Tanya Roberts death, and subsequent revival, actually portends 2021... 2021 will start off very dark and bleak, but things will get a lot better.

    Thoughts and Opinions on the 2021 Deathlist

    Not a bad list, though I admit I couldn't come up with too many names this year. Here is my personal DL for 2021... Larry King Rush Limbaugh David Crosby Shannen Doherty Bob Dole Jimmy Carter Bob Barker Loretta Lynn Julie Strain Billy Connolly Harry Reid Teri Garr (Has had a number of health issues lately) Dick Cheney Ozzy Osbourne Robert Wagner (kinda random choice) Betty White (pains me to put her name on this list, but she's 99 years old) Bill Cosby (joker) (from what I heard, he is VERY motivated to stay alive due to his case being appealed, and wants to fight to clear his name, so he has every reason to why to live b/c he wants to save his legacy and possibly not die in prison, but hell, he's 83 years old and in frail health, AND in prison while the pandemic is going on)
