    The 5th Crowdsource Deathlist (2020 edition)

    4-1 up on the Committee already, this is a bloodbath.

    The Deathlist Gets Franchised

    James L Dozier is an interesting pick, would definitely be a fun obit to write.
  4. So as the board's resident guinea, I'm always keen to check up on any potential DDP picks from the old country. I was doing a little googling for Pietro Ingrao, recently centenarianed Italian communist politician, and came across this site: http://dpseggi.altervista.org/DeathList/X2015.html Discuss.

    Why no Indians ever in DeathList?

    Is this the new gimmick poster?
  6. Peart + Kobe = Rickman + Bowie Is this a fair fame equation?

    Podcasts

    Those of you who have any interest in (who was anti-semitic and who had a massive penis in) old Hollywood or Golden Era TV will already been listening, but for those who aren't: the in memoriam episode of Gilbert Gottfried's Amazing Colossal Podcast is up for 2019. Essential listening for anyone who has interest in dead celebrities, and I never knew that Charles Manson was indirectly responsible for Doris Day's hermitude.

    Kobe Bryant

    Oh man I miss the days of the DeathList when we only talked about really famous A-list celebrities like Baroness Blatch and Walter Cronkite's wife.

    Kobe Bryant

    Trying to think who else has had threads after death. Gary Speed, Avicii, David Gest... is that it? The first two were worthy in terms of "fuck, really?" out of nowhere-ness. The third... maybe not as much.

    Kobe Bryant

    The important take is here:

    Kobe Bryant

    If they both died tomorrow, who would get more coverage in the US media? Never played in the US Cristiano Ronaldo or proud American international and one-time Liverpool reserve team player Zak Whitbread?

    Will Cardiff still need to play his transfer fee?

    2. Kirk Douglas

    So with Kobe dead, does Kirk regain his throne as the most famous living *gets dragged off-stage by 3,000 lawyers*

    On the same day Lebron overtook his NBA points total as well.

    Fucking hell.

    And the metal band Alive have one dead member.

    Hollywood Survivors

    Finally got around to watching Uncut Gems today (yes, it is as good as everyone says). Googled one of the supporting actors who I'd never heard of, Keith Williams Richards - turns out it was his first ever job in acting and he's just had an operation on his throat cancer. He was a first responder at 9/11, which has a long history of taking lives early...

    The 100 Club

    A thread for people who have passed the age of 100 but have (very, very) faint claims to fame other than "just being old". The lifeblood of many a DDP theme team, really, may as well get them all in one place. Plus it gives me an excuse to have a regular meeting point for two of my favourites: 110-year-old paranormal investigator Alexander Imich and 107-year-old financier Irving Kahn, who apparently still goes to work daily. Check out his current stock portfolio here. Anyway, so here's where we can rhapsodise about Run Run Shaw, Roy Douglas and Vo Nguyen Giap and the many public appearances they'll no doubt be making in the near future. One of the leading actors of the pre-blaxploitation era cowboy "race movies", Herb Jeffries, just turned 100.

    Gangster, Gangster

    The current Drogheda gang war will no doubt be providing some names for this thread over the coming years. Cornelius Price, a gang boss and friend of the recently dismembered Keane Mulready-Woods, has apparently fled Ireland to the UK (Rochdale) as there's a $100,000 price on his head. The Daily Mail is the first UK tabloid to go big with coverage, suggesting that 40 people have effectively gone to ground over fears they could be targeted.

    Gangster, Gangster

    How come Frankie Fraser's never on the TV any more? He was never off the bloody thing in the late 90s. Is there some, like, Sky 3 or Bravo documentary series he hosts now, or is he just dying in a home alone and unloved somewhere? People who I crossed off my DDP team for this year at the last minute: "cancer stricken" Glaswegian crimelord Jamie Daniel, because I have absolutely no idea about Scottish crime whatsoever and for all I know these guys could just be having a laugh and a carry on with bored local crime reporters. Most of the current capi of the American Mafia are in their 70s and unlikely to be shot any time soon. On the other hand, Venero "Benny Eggs" Mangano turns 90 this year, having spent 15 of the past 18 years in prison for his part in an extortion racket that saw the Mafia make $2 for every window replaced in New York for five years.

    Hercules Ayala, big star in Puerto Rico during the 80s who also did some work for New York and Stampede, dead at 69. I was watching his match with Randy Savage just the other week:

    Turns out he got a "killer parasite" from eating dodgy Chinese takeaway duck pancakes.
