Kudos to both Suharto, for finally carking it, and Deathlist, for seeing its second hit of the year! If the first month is any implication, Deathlist is off to a good year.
Kudos to Deathlist?!
You mean, well done to DL for picking an 87 year old Bastard whos actually been dead for the last year or so anyway?
Bone Idle? Yes
If DL picks people who are old, sick and die, people complain that easy targets are being picked. If DL picks people who are youthful, healthy and don't die, people complain that the DL sucks because it's not getting hits. If people are going to whine no matter what happens, might as well be successful in one's chosen endeavour. Or, as Rick Nelson put it, "You can't please everyone, so you've got to please yourself"
I'm content with hits as long as they have a decent amount of fame, regardless of age. Suharto easily passes that test.
