    Big Yellow Bird

    I dreamt 'A Big Yellow Bird' had died. Caroll Spinney who has played the part of Sesame Street's, 'Big Bird' is now 73 years old and his biography claims 'In recent years Spinney has had to minimize his time performing Big Bird, due to his age. The literally heavy responsibility of performing Big Bird has gone to Matt Vogel, who performs the character in the regular "Journey to Ernie" segment, and to a very limited extent, Rick Lyon' - Over his career he performed the characters in Australia, China, Japan, and across Europe. visited the White House multiple times. conducted orchestras across the US and Canada, including the Boston Pops. starred in the theatrically-released movie Follow that Bird, with a high-billing in Elmo in Grouchland. served as a recording artist on dozens of albums. Will this bird turn from yellow to blue soon?

    Jimmy Savile

    Any news on Jimmy Saville's well-being? A possible contender for the 2005 list perchance? He'd be getting a bit snaggle-toothed by now.

    43. Clive James

    Watched Clive James being interviewed on "Enough Rope" (the only decent chat show on Australian telly) the other week. He gives himself another ten years. So pencil him in for 2015. You heard it here first...

    49. Ginger Baker

    Thread for "Rock's first superstar drummer" and founder of Cream, Ginger Baker, turning 78 later this month. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ginger_Baker He's still occasionally performing, in spite of decades of smoking, COPD since 2013, open heart surgery in 2016 and a fall in the same year. This is the most recent review I found: http://www.scotsman.com/lifestyle/culture/music/glasgow-jazz-festival-reviews-ginger-baker-tony-allen-the-bevvy-sisters-1-4487474 It features the descriptions "sick man", "evident frailty", and "how (?) he still manages to play at all".

    Dave Swarbrick (And Fairport Convention)

    Always a good sign that your time is nearly up is winning a 'Lifetime Achievement Award'. Dave Swarbrick, former violinist with Fairport Convention, received one this week at the BBC Folk Awards. Unfortunately Dave was too ill to receive his award in person! Swarb, rather surprisingly, has already passed the famousness test, by having an obituary written in the Daily Telegraph a couple of years ago. (Oops). His poor health (mainly self-inflicted it has to be said) has included 2 tracheotomies in the last few years, and he is now confined to a wheelchair with oxygen mask (see also Marlon Brando). Keep an eye on him. DWB

    Lone Rhinoceros

    Being that the entire species (all variations) may well be extinct in our children's' lifetimes, I figured we could count them down, 1 by 1. We lost two bloody black rhinos just this month. Denver Zoo officials are mourning the loss of a 21-year-old black rhinoceros after the animals health caused the zoo to euthanize him. Zoo officials say since 2014 they have tried 20 different procedures and therapies to alleviate the critically endangered animals foot problems, including customized boots. Mshindi was born at the zoo in 1993. His name means warrior or champion in Swahili. The rhino was taught to hold a paint brush in his mouth and create paintings that were then sold to raise money for rhino conservation.

    John McCain

    Yeah, so he has an aggressive form of brain cancer, so he's definitely a very good candidate for next year I think. Felt like he needed his own thread, and I try to limit the amount of threads I make, but it's too tempting this time, so here we are...

    Annette Funicello

    Annette Funicello - 63 years old, has had MS since 1987. Starred in the "Beach Movies" of the '60s, and a few other flicks along the way. She had brain surgery in 1999 to slow down tremors to her brain from the MS. Probably a bit too American, but it's worth a shot.

    Eddie Money

    So as many of you know, Eddie Money has been diagnosed with stage 4 esophageal cancer. Well, with all the coverage he had received, I have decided that he’s probably drop 40 worthy and maybe Deathlist worthy too. However, he’d have to see 2020 first, which might a tough task imo.

    Osama Bin Laden

    I'm surprised Osama bin Laden wasn't on this year's deathlist. While he's proven pretty resilient since getting more than he bargained for post-911, I'd say with a US election in November, there's a good chance the Americans will manage to blow up whatever mountain hole Osama is squirreled away in. And in the end, that's probably good news for him, what with all those virgins waiting for him in the afterlife . . .

    Bhumibol Adulyadej

    This fella is hanging by the skin of his teeth and has been for years, I doubt he will be included in next years list as most peeps don't know him but I live in Thailand and he can't last much longer he's got every illness under the sun. Please don't tell anyone my name or they will come for me in the middle of the night and ship me off to the Bangkok Hilton for etnerity!
  24. Stayin Alive


    Looks like Suharto might go this year. He has been declared unfit to stand trial. Perhaps he should of been included this year after all.

    Mohamed Morsi

    http://www.jpost.com...-protest-318205 So with threats that this is now turning into a civil war and Morsi is in his heavily guarded Qubba presidential palace, how long before he is strung up like gaddafi? P.s if anyone can think of a better sub-heading it will be great as mine is not really that good haha .
