Celebrity Death Watch 2013 – Will This Be The Year?

Posted in Celebrity Deaths, Nonsense, TV/Movies, Wacky News with tags , , , , , , , , on January 3, 2013 by Bob

Sounds like what Chicago Cubs fans (of which I am one) say every year. I would like to say that I think that the Cubs actually will win it all this year because this past year, I FINALLY made some accurate predictions in my Celeb death watch. The one though that is still eluding my predictions, and that the second half of the title is for, is for our lovely, legless Zsa Zsa. I still can’t believe that she is hanging in there. There were a lot of others though not expected despite my predictions of Robin Gibb & Ray Bradbury. Of course, there were those that passed who I had on my lists PREVIOUS years. So, those of you that made it through my list for 2012, look out in 2013. I really wish that some of my “Fun Guesses” came through for me as well, but oh well. We will try again this year. I have to leave a few on this year just because I have to. So, here we go!

2013 Obvious Choices

Zsa Zsa Gabor – 4 years running and she STILL hangs in there. I HAVE to leave her at the top of the list for another year.

Hugo Chaves – If he makes it until the posting of this list, I will be surprised.

George Bush Sr. – Second year in a row for him as well, since they won’t say WHY he is in the hospital really, I think it is his time. Plus, same reason as last year, a past president hasn’t died in a while.

Eli Wallach – Coffin? Coffin? He don’t need no stinkin’ coffin!

Kirk Douglas – Speaking of old. His chin dimple has been around so long the Grand Canyon looks like a creek.

Nancy Reagan – She is missing Ronny a little bit and will soon follow him.

Stan Lee – The scene where Spiderman covers Chewbacca with webbing will explode his brain.

Abe Vigoda – I hate to, but I have to. It is going to happen one of these days and I do NOT want to be left out. I love the old geezer!

Al Molinaro – I think I may have had him on in the past and I am adding him back for an Encore appearance. Get it … Encore. Yeah, we’ll be over at 6.

June Foray – The voice of Rocky the Squirrel is getting on in years. The only reason I have her is because she is still working! That means we will lose her too soon.

Mickey Rooney – Normally I stop at 10 but I had to throw him in here. His crazy is just getting crazy.

 

I will work on getting my “fun guesses” together in the next day or so. As always, feel free to let me know who you think will buy a farm this year. Remember, this is the realistic list. Wish list to come soon.

Celebrity Deaths In December – The End Of The World Came For Them

Posted in Celebrity Deaths, Music, Nonsense, TV/Movies with tags , , , , , , , , on January 1, 2013 by Bob

It is a new year but we can’t forget those that passed on the last month of last year. I will be getting my predictions up for next year, tomorrow at some point. I want to use up as many posting days as I can. I want it to look a little better this year than last. I kind of slacked off, much like the following celebs who slacked off in the living department in December. I figured since I was doing this list today, I would start watching The Walking Dead that I got as a Christmas gift. Haven’t watched it since it came on but … pretty good 2 episodes in. Anyhoo, here are some dead not walking so much.
