    From Cleric To Relic

    Long-time drain-circler Bishop Francis Quinn, DDP pick and no doubt a selectee on numerous other pools, finally dead. At the time of his death he was the oldest Catholic bishop in the US, which should see him get a Reuters obit.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    Yeah, I’m 95% sure she really is dead. The only other explanation I can think of is someone stole her identity to further their porn career, and that person died. But yeah, I think Miriam’s dead.

    Is officially open for business. Emails appear to be very slow sending out, if you haven't received one by, idk, tomorrow, let me know.

    Death Anniversary Thread

    Ernie Wise, who made the first ever mobile phone call in the UK, died today in 1999. As stated previously, it was his death that sparked my interest in deadpooling as a youth, so I suppose this marks my hobby's 20th anniversary. Here he is being history's first incel gamer:

    R Dean Taylor

    The first white record "released" on Motown was Nick & The Jaguars “Ich-i-bon #1”, although they never signed a full deal with Gordy. It really doesn't sound like a Motown track:

    Minimalists (and other classical composers/musicians)

    I really need to sort the theme team league out then, huh? Need to find a way of doing it that's less... fucking tedious than the current method.

    DDP Team Name Rejects

    Thinking about a team for next year called something like "Close But No Cigar....", consisting solely of men celebheights.com says are 5ft 11 3/4.

    The 2019 Deathlist Cup

    Some great names up for grabs next round in terms of obits. Could be one of our more colourful months on record.

    Territory era worker Roger Kirby dead at 79. Another one of the ersatz "Nature Boy" wrestlers of the 1970s, he had some big runs, particularly in the Central States where he won tag gold with the likes of Harley Race, Les Thatcher and Alfred Hayes.

    MC Ren and Pete Sampras?

    Unique hit for Blueberry Crumble when the QO comes in.

    20 years ago today, Inter Milan drew 1-1 with Manchester United and Hull went down.

    Reality TV

    Goody, Baggs, Thalassitis. The holy trinity.
  16. As long promised. So, go on, what do you have? Lifeboat (1944) has 10 castmembers listed on IMDB, all of them have confirmed death dates (the last surviving actor would have been Mary Anderson, who died in 2014) I was going to say "well, obviously, Swimming to Cambodia counts" - one actor, and he killed himself 15 years ago. However, there is archive footage in the film taken from The Killing Fields, and Sam Waterston is still with us and being mildly entertaining in mildly entertaining sitcom Grace and Frankie. The travails of us failing to clarify if everyone from 12 Angry Men is dead can be found here. In short: almost certainly, but we can't prove it. So what can you prove DL?

    The Priests Of Father Ted

    Frank Kelly, who has fought bowel cancer in the past, has now been diagnosed with Parkinson's. This thread will also, presumably, double as a thread for Irish TV character actors. If one of the more listmania posters on the site could do the honours via IMDB that'd be appreciated.

    Death, Italian Style

    Alright, there's enough of us on here now to have earned our own topic. Andrea Camilleri, Topo Gigio creator Maria Perego, Nico Fidenco, Omero Antonutti... this is where they go when they experience La Dolce Morte.

    Art For Death's Sake

    Okwui Enwezor, art critic/historian and curator of the 2015 Venice Biennale, dead at 55. There had been some talk of his cancer in the art world last year.

    Welcome to Jackass

    Hi I'm SpadeCooley, and this is the Jackass Deathlist thread. Those who grew up on the much-loved sk8r/prank/bee beard show will be aware that Bam Margera has recently been committed to a "behaviour facility". This follows him checking out of rehab for alcohol problems earlier this month, his third attempt at going clean. This follows hot on the heels of a catastrophic "comedy club" tour which saw him apparently break up with his wife, have a series of dates with low attendance cancelled and numerous public meltdowns over his management. Also, has any man aged as much in the past 20 years? Of course, we've already lost one Jackass icon (Ryan Dunn), as well as Bam's child-noncing uncle Don Vito, and Bam could easily be next, but there's many more names out there to muse over. Steve-O was a popular "young and dumb" deadpool pick in the 00s when he was taking in vodka through an IV and stapling his scrotum to his thigh, but he seems to have stuck to his sobriety well enough in recent years. Phil Margera and Preston Lacy are unlikely to win many "low cholesterol level" contests. The form of dwarfism Wee Man has is achondroplasia, the same as Peter Dinklage and Tom Shakespeare, so it's not any detriment to reaching middle age. Raab Himself had to leave the show early in its run due to various addictions, but again appears to have resumed civilian life successfully.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    For those on the QO hunt, The Times is clearly cleaning out a backlog. Of the four obituaries published today, three (transgender drone pioneer Bobbi Swan, archaeologist Roger Mercer and Wrecking Crew member Joe Osborn) died in 2018.

    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.
  24. Yep, it's your all-purpose themaninblack-baiting thread to discuss potential cadavers that popped up in The Sopranos, The West Wing, The Wire, Mad Men, Oz, Deadwood, The Shield, Breaking Bad (if you're a pleb who thinks that's an intelligent show) et al. If Ginny Sack carking it gets a Daily Mail obituary, we can probably assume anyone who had a named role on these shows is DDP eligible. Dominic Chianese paying tribute to James Gandolfini is one of those things that just looks weird, like when you saw the Queen Mum at Princess Di's funeral.

    Broadway - "the Great White Way"

    This is the complete one-off list, including the already dead. Other than Cher, the most likely "next up" surely has to be recurrent skin-cancer's very own Hugh Jackman?
