    Shadow DeathList Competition 2022

    There was an idea in Punt Pool (iirc) that the game runner essentially creates a Star Chamber of maybe five or so individuals who for borderline picks rule on their eligibility a simple 3:2 majority allows them in. Otherwise it is no QO no point which means player must make the judgement for themselves

    Shadow Lists

    This is just to really share Shadow Lists and compare to the performance of the committee. There are more competitive versions such as Deathlist Correctlist and Deathlist Prediction Game Assuming they both run in 2022 and then of course there is the Crwodsourced Deathlist where a democratically elected Deathlist goes head to head with the committee

    Surely it is best to know that there is a plan and that they are just hoping the Archbishop of Canterbury won't have booked a fortnight in Ibiza or that its not a black bin week collection in Windsor

    British Character Actors

    There are three earlier surviving Evening Standard Best Theatre actor award winners prior to Anthony Sher. The equivalent list for Actress (Ten Earliest surviving) actually ends where this one starts - with Judy Dench in 1980 and the earliest being Vanessa Redgrave in 1961

    Ideas and possibilities 2022

    In terms of timing this is about the worst possible from a recognition by the Death list community. There are no live competitions that will start until advent avalanche and he will be penciled into many 2022 shortlist with the expectation of being struck through

    The Happy Birthday Thread

    In 2019 my niece got married at Spandau Castle just outside Berlin. During the disco afterwards as soon as the DJ put Winds of Change on the floor filled with all the Groom's side of the family particularly his parent's generation.

    Statistics

    I didn't know where to post this so I have created a new thread. If a mod thinks it is already covered please move it. I was thinking about who are the general Deathlist picks so as a starting point I took my 1000 name longlist and split people up into broad categories. Almost 3/4 of the list is taken up with just 5 categories 254 - Actors 192 - Music Industry 120 - Writers 103 - Politicians 69 - Sport Where the is ambiguity I have used a judgement rather than record people twice. I don't know if this says more about me or whether peoples longlists are similar. I suppose the ultimate long list is the DDP master list. Because this is my longlist it doesn't contain the 450 names on my shortlist who are probably more likely to go.
