Shadow Lists

Recommended Posts

Eh. I'm at par with last year, at this point in my first list last year I had 8 hits (Soares, Youguang, Snuka, Moore, Corey, Westhuizen, Sumner, and Rockefeller.)

As of now in 2018, I have 8 hits (Elias, Falkholt, Cryne, Miller, Tsvangirai, Graham. LaFaye, and Bush.)

I'm now up to 5 hits this year, what with Speaker Martin dying. Just seems a bit like a slow burning year...

No Naipaul on my shadow list (page 7)...disappointing.... 10/50 now. I guess as underwhelming as the committee must feel.

With the latest Mary Carlisle and Charlotte Rae I'm at 11/50 right now. Not that bad, I guess.

Rather disgruntled that I've only got 7/50 so far. However, in the time it's taken me to type this, Aretha may well have died, so that's one more at least.

Just a mere three hits now: Franklin, Graham; Joseph Jackson. Unusual.

I have only 6 hits and only 3 months to go. Underwhelming indeed. :ghost5:

Double whammy for my underperforming Personal List, with Hayes and Aznavour.

 

7 hits. Yike.

DL draws even with me at 10 apiece, simply because I forgot that Aznavour existed because I’m an amateur.

Got to 12, I had forgotten to cross off Aretha Franklin and missed Doug Ellis dying a couple days ago!

Surprised to get a hit with Baroness Trumpington...and quite lucky, she wasn't going to be on my 2019 list. I draw level with the pros once again.

Well, up to 9/50 here with George HW. Can I scrape double figures?

At 13 now - which is somewhat funny, because in the DL Prediction game I actually have more hits. Only I forced myself to think a little like the committee there and had success with suspected DeathList returnees Bill Maynard and Doug Ellis.

Right, that's my 2019 Personal Shadowlist completed, it will be posted here in the New Year.

 

At this point, I've kept 24 names from 2018, 26 "new" names replacing those I've dropped.

 

Think that means I've entered everything except the DL Prediction Game (which I'll do a wee bit later in the month @Book).Unless I hear otherwise that it's going ahead, looks like the Hartlepool DP is out for me.

2018 - Quim's Queasy Quop is almost at the end of its decidedly average run. I'm out of the country from the 27th until 20th January, so I shall, in my signature, be unveiling 2019 - Leah's Legacy on Boxing Day. And the landscape has changed dramatically, with 25 brand new names, 20 carry-overs from 2018 (as things stand) and 5 returnees from 2017 - Fifty Frail Fatalities. I'm confident I'll do better this year, but then I was last year, wrongly.

Just so you know, if any of you who post your shadow list on here want to also be an entry to the Crowdsource list, please let me know so I can add your list to the Crowdsource list. Thanks. :)

*Rolls titles* Welcome back to the Shadow List thread, before the Joey Russ advert break we saw Prophet, Quim and Willz discussing their shadow lists...
