2017 hit lower than normal numbers of iconic deaths, but if we believe in CGI Carrie Fisher's message, then we should "hope" that 2018 will have a lot of good death! :D And "hope" isn't just about old or washed up celebrities dying, it's also about the unexpected death of young(ish?) actors like Brittany Murphy or Scott Bakula (Bakula is okay, but if you worried for a second, then maybe you understand?).

Post updates and let's "hope" together! :D/

Highlights from this year's Death List:
http://deathlist.net/
1 Kirk Douglas (Age 102)
7 Betty White (Age 96)
8 John McCain (Age 82)
13 Stan Lee (Age 96)
16 Doris Day (Age 96)
17 Bob Dole (Age 95)
18 Bob Barker (Age 95)
20 Jimmy Carter (Age 94)
25 George Bush Senior (Age 94)
29 Barbara Bush (Age 93)
30 Dick van Dyke (Age 93)
33 Mel Brooks (Age 92)

I'd like to see Taylor go. A plane crash, or maybe a crazed fan.

I just want to hold it over Palem that she's gone.

lulz :D
She turned 28, so I guess she made it out of the "Forever 27" prospective club, so she may be out of the woods :(

"A little from column A, a little from column B"
;p

The wish list portion:
• Seth Rogen
• Jonah Hill
• Taylor Swift
• Kevin Jonas
• Daisy Ridley

The prediction portion:
• Jared Leto (Leto because I wonder if he'd kill himself just to seem like he's playing the Joker really well)
• Lars Ulrich (musicians die a lot)
• Jim Carrey (he might kill himself to see if he's just in the Matrix?)
• Jason Scott Lee (haven't heard from him in a while)
• Famous comedian Arnold Braunschweiger (because that would suck for realz :( )

I think there was only 2 people from the top 50 on tumbleweed's list of 27 year olds that I would want to spare from death.

That's pretty depressing.

although since i support mass depopulation, i guess there's only 2 i would spare as well (Lawrence & Hyland)


also, apparently you can sort by profession w/ the link at the bottom if you want to focus on singers & rappers for the 27 club

"i only recognized 5 from appearance, & not many more by name"

Yes, that's much of why I'd be willing to let so many go. I kept seeing "youtube star" as a description and actively wished for that "famous" person to join the 27 club.

@27 List
Ooo, Emma Watson on that list. That would be a dream! *And* Jennifer Lawrence? Ooo! This could be a good year! :D

I hope K-Stew and the slightly less muscular Hemsworth make it. #TeamBella ;p

Bill Skarsgård would be a realistic pick since he has that "It" edge to justify an untimely death. It would let people over-hype his performance like they did with Ledger — who, by the way, died at 28... so maybe Tay Tay *could* go this year? Is 28 the new 27? ;)

K-stew can bite it. She's awful.

I'm pulling for Grant Gustin in a shameless admission that I like superhero stuff and he plays a reasonably decent Flash for it being a CW tv show. I also feel like Margot Robbie could be a decent actress at some point and am willing to spot her another few years.

Eh, she's just trashy average to me. Not bad looking, but not some amazing specimen of the trailer park.
