    Dead Pop Stars

    What is the name for the phenomenon where a band is called by a girl's name or nickname which is not in fact her name or nickname, but everyone assumes it is? I''m thinking of Roxette, Blondie, and there must be others.

    The Dead of 2019

    I should have picked her for this year, I had known of her imminent demise for some time, but it never occurred to me she could be someone that would get an obit, although it now seems obvious

    Celebrity Chefs

    Hit by a transit van in the 1970s according to the Sun. Also his UAE restaurant closed in September.

    Sir Anthony Hopkins

    Interview with him in the Telegraph: The truth is, he never usually walks on the beach. ‘Because my knees hurt a bit.’ He laughs. ‘I should have died years ago.’ Hmmm

    The Dead of 2019

    Marieke Vervoort, my DDP joker from last year, has euthanised herself.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    Belinda Charlton Gilfoyle (my unique pick) has apparently died, although her death was not publicised. So no qualifying obit. Also according to Google she died last 14 December. Can I use my sub? https://www.twipu.com/FionaThrust/tweet/1082009684972838915 Err, Ok, I just checked, my next sub available is Huston Smith, who died in 2016. Clearly I'm not very good at this game.

    I'm still shocked by the death of Karel Gott.

    Derby Dead Pool 2019

    I'm gutted about Karel gott, first because he was a legend and second because I picked him in 2016 and had considered it again for 2019, but he seemed to have recovered.

    Fernando Ricksen

    3rd hit of the year, but since every other team had him too, then no biggie

    Can't believe I didn't choose him. He lives about 10 minutes drive from me, and I saw him in the supermarket a couple of years ago, and even then he needed help picking up the mangoes.

    The Dead of 2019

    Finally get my first hit of the year, and it's the joker! “Although the doctors say that I don’t have so much time left, in my last days, I want to try to do good, to be useful. That’s so much better than having a long life but making people miserable!” Great philosophy to have!

    I was sure he was on my list ... but no!

    Olivia Newton-John

    " People have this preconceived notion that cancer is a death sentence, but you can now live with it like a chronic illness. I’m lucky and I take a lot of medicinal cannabis and I’m doing great. " from her interview in the Telegraph today
