THEMED Celebrity Death Pool 2020


NOTE: As we started in 2019, Themed Death Pool Lists will be posted and tracked in a separate thread. If you are looking for the 2020 Celebrity Death Pool thread, click here

phungi (aka: the Death Shroom) checking in as your 2020 Death Pool chaperone, with Baker (aka: the Death Mistress) running the "regular"pool.

In case anyone is new to this game, the rules are outlined below. There are a few new rules so read carefully.

The Rules:
  1. You pick 13 celebrities (plus 3 alternates) that you predict will die in the year 2020. If any of your celebrities dies, you score 100 points minus their age at death. Whoever has the most points at the end of the year...wins. It's rather simple.

    Please check the spelling if your celebrity's names, as editing takes hours. Also, please do not put spaces or periods between abbreviated letters.

    For example: "George HW Bush" instead of George H. W. Bush"

  2. Players may submit lists to both the "regular" and "themed" pools. However, those posting a Themed list should explain the theme.

  3. All picks must be made by December 31st, 2019, at 11:59PM, CENTRAL TIME. Late entries (i.e., ANY time after midnight of Jan 1st) will be turned away.

  4. Valid picks CANNOT be:
    1. already dead
    2. fictional
    3. under age 18
    4. a registered member of the SDMB
    5. hostages held by terrorist organizations
    6. famous solely as a result of their illness or the events surrounding their death (see #14 below)

  5. If you have any questions about who is or is not a celebrity, feel free to post to the thread or PM me. This is why we include 3 alternates, so if a pick is designated to be invalid, your first alternate will be elevated to your list.

  6. If we are uncertain about the celebrity's age at death, we will go by the higher age (lower score).

  7. Prisoners held on death row count only if they die by means other than official execution.

  8. If you kill anyone on your list to try to get ahead or cheat, then you're automatically disqualified.

  9. Editing your choices: You can change the people on your list as many times as you wish before the deadline above, just make sure that your FINAL list is known, otherwise I'm going to take the first 13 of yours I see listed.

  10. Alternates are important, in the case of a pick being invalid, or a pick dying prior to January 1st.

  11. If a player changes their username at some point, post this news on the thread, or PM me, so I know who you are.

  12. Tracking celebrity deaths is the job of each individual player. Wiki maintains a page of deaths each month, and is an excellent reference.

  13. I create and share a Scorekeeper in the form of an Excel Spreadsheet. I am happy to share this with any and all participants. I generally post to a DropBox folder, and update it after every death. If you do not have DropBox, sign up (it is free).

  14. Determination of who is a celebrity will remain a subjective matter, but generally defined as "the person has some known presence in the form of a Wikipedia Page and/or notoriety in the news or such" and their fame or celebrity cannot be based solely on their having a terminal illness". Sole possession of a Wikipedia page will not constitute "celebrity". If questioned, the person who posted that individual may be required provide such evidence.

    Questions may be raised about the appropriateness of a pick at any point after a list is posted, even after 1/1/20. Alternates picks play an important role, as "questionable" picks may be disqualified post-posting.

  15. Themed lists will be submitted and tracked through a separate thread/pool, linked here.

  16. There is no exchange of money, that would be in poor taste. Rather, each year, we share the following awards:
    The "Opening Kickoff" Award: awarded to the poster or posters who pick the first listed celebrity to die in 2020.
    The "Quantity Not Quality" Award: awarded to the poster or posters who pick the greatest number of celebrities who died, regardless of their actual point value.
    The "Grim Reaper" Award: awarded to the poster or posters who had the most unique picks that died.
    The "Robbing the Cradle" Award: awarded to the poster or posters who pick the youngest celebrity to die in 2020, but see rule 3d.
    The "Final Hours" Award: awarded to the poster or posters who pick the last listed celebrity to die in 2020.

  17. You need to submit a clean list, with no explanations, dates of birth, titles, etc. If you want to add commentary, include this below your clean list.

    For example:

    Theme: Brady Bunch

    Clean list:
    Robert Reed
    Florence Henderson
    Ann B. Davis
    Barry Williams
    Maureen McCormick
    Christopher Knight
    Eve Plumb
    Mike Lookinland
    Susan Olsen
    Allan Melvin
    Jack Collins
    Robbie Rist
    Desi Arnaz Jr

    Annotated list:
    Robert Reed as Mike Brady
    Florence Henderson as Carol Brady
    Ann B. Davis as Alice Nelson
    Barry Williams as Greg Brady
    Maureen McCormick as Marcia Brady
    Christopher Knight as Peter Brady
    Eve Plumb as Jan Brady
    Mike Lookinland as Bobby Brady
    Susan Olsen as Cindy Brady
    Allan Melvin as Sam Franklin
    Jack Collins as Mr. Phillips
    Robbie Rist as Cousin Oliver
    Desi Arnaz, Jr. as himself

  18. Scoring: When a celebrity dies, you get their age at death subtracted from 100. All celebrities who are 100 or over count, but you get "0" Points for their death, contributing to the "Quantity not Quality" award.
    If anyone has any questions, post to the thread, or PM me.


Have fun, everyone. Good luck!

Sadly, many holdovers from prior year
Theme: Evil and its Minions (IMHO)

* Donald Trump - orange hued evil incarnate
* Mike Pence - evangelical hypocritical bobble-head
* Mike Pompeo - Secretary of State - sycophant, political fixer
* Rudy Giuliani - conspiracy theorist, crooked fixer for Trump, batshit insane
* Betsy DeVos - paid for position of Secretary of Education
* Brett Kavanaugh - "Sometimes I had too many beers. I liked beer. I still like beer."
* Mick Mulvaney - Budget Director - "Meals on Wheels doesn't work; fighting climate change is a rip-off"
* William Barr - Supposedly US Attorney General, actually personal pitbull for Trump
* Mitch McConnell - From GQ: "This man has no morals, nor any respect for the rule of law, nor any respect for those who would defy him. For his own personal gain, he permitted Russia to continue manipulating the November election so that his party's candidate could win—giving us a quivering mound of chili drippings for president."
* Stephen Miller - WH advisor, architect of hard-line immigration policy, including separating families, putting children in cages
* Ivanka Kushner - "She is not passively complicit in the Trump administration’s policies; she is an active architect "
* Kim Jong-un - Supreme Leader of North Korea, and just as deranged as our own Dear Leader
* Devin Nunes - Rep. Nunes cares not for the truth or his constituents. His lies serve only one master - Trump

Alternates:
* Vladimir Putin - President of Russia, top puppeteer
* Dick Cheney - throwback to when evil was just heartless, and didn't include nuclear annihilation

Plain List:

Donald Trump
Mike Pence
Mike Pompeo
Rudy Giuliani
Betsy DeVos
Brett Kavanaugh
Mick Mulvaney
William Barr
Mitch McConnell
Stephen Miller
Ivanka Kushner
Kim Jong-un
Devin Nunes

Alternates:
Vladimir Putin
Dick Cheney

That's what I get for trusting the list on IMDB and not double checking.

Illustrious Death Shroom, please replace Previn with Sondheim.
