Celebrity Death List 2022
Best get started...
Reply
Not sure if it still feels right to guess who's gonna shuffle off anymore, but if anyone fancies throwing a list of 10 elder statespersons who may be teetering on the edge this year, feel free.

You may have at most two guesses for those under the age of 50.

As it started late, I'll leave entries open until Friday 14th.

Happy Ghouling!

I feel your wildcards are more of a wishlist
Nah, I don't mind Gino and I chose Piggy because she does MURDER HORSE JUMPS so she might die.
Don't know if anyone's mentioned it yet, but the American film director Peter Bogdanovich has died, back on the 6th of January. He was a young film critic who became a director when the great inventive cheapskate American film-producer Roger Corman asked him to make any film he wanted so long as it used footage from a failed attempted gothic horror movie of his own starring Boris Karloff and Jack Nicholson. Bogdanovich used the footage as a movie-within-a-movie in the 1968 film 'Targets', where an aging old horror actor doing a press junket for his new b-movie at a drive-in theatre encounters the modern horror of a purposeless sniper firing at the audience. Made on a budget of $130,000 it made for a powerful cut-price debut.

Bodganovich went on to make the great American coming of age classic 'The Last Picture Show', a sort of elegy set in a dying Texan town and thought to be one of the best American movies ever made. This was followed by the screwball comedy 'What's Up Doc' starring Barbara Streisand and Ryan O'Neal, which is surprisingly excellent. He chalked up another success after that with Paper Moon, a depression era Preston Sturges style downbeat comedy about two grifters, one of whom is a nine year old girl. The kid, Tatum O'Neal (playing against her dad) became the youngest actor ever to win an Oscar at just ten years old.

Though the films dipped somewhat in quality following this incredible four-movie debut, he managed a fairly decent acting career on the side, appearing in the Sopranos and - funnily enough - Kill Bill Parts 1 & 2.

Radio just said that Meat Loaf has died

Real shame that... And I guess now I'll never get to ask him why they call him Meatloaf.
Lots of people did, and they all got different answers :)
At least he died doing what he loved.
ZOMG Spoiler! Click here to view!
Your mum.

Famously, he has his limits, and your mum is that.

His obit said it was a nickname a football coach gave him in high school??
The obit I read said his dad called him it as a baby.
I read it was because he was fashioned out of meat loaf by an Armenian refugee.
It was because he ate nothing except meatloaf ever. It's partly why he passed away at a relatively young 74.
He loved calling young horses, it’s an anagram of At me foal!
See what I mean? Now we'll never know.

Please. It was because when he was asked whether he preferred Anna or Elsa he said he was Team Olaf.
It seems that he likely died of Covid, and had been making some strong anti-vax comments recently.
He was very clear that he wouldn't do *that*
And we finally know what it was.

The fact that this remains some big mystery has always puzzled me, as he says all the things he won't do right there in the song. They are:
  • forget the way you feel right now
  • forgive myself if we don't go all the way
  • do it better then I do it with you
  • stop dreaming of you every night of my life
  • [treat the relationship with the lady like it was just a "midsummer night's fling"] (this one gets a whole verse!
  • screw around
He’s a real dead ringer now.
I think it must be the second. All of the other things are things that he says he won’t do, but they aren’t reasonably things that you could argue he’d do ‘for love’ (as in nobody screws around behind your back because they love you, nobody stops dreaming of you because they love you) but someone might think that they’d abstain (until marriage?) out of love.

So, Meatloaf will do anything for love, except wait for sex or get a vaccination.

His best work was in Fight Club, anyway.

I mean, maybe you're right? Or maybe him and the guy that wrote it are right ;)
Yeah, but I think he’s trying to cover for the fact that they’ve written a song about coercing a person into sex.

Clearly nobody is asking him to forget the way he feels ‘for love’. That clip is him protesting too much :D
