Random Thoughts Regarding Listology
Submitted by slipkid71 on Tue, 01/06/2004 - 13:51
- Wouldn't it be funny (or maybe not) if one of the frequent contributors to Listology is actually someone famous or well-known? I mean, how do we know that behind that screen name isn't someone like Nick Hornby, or hell, even Colin Farrell?
- Wouldn't it also be funny if one or several of our frequent contributors to Listology eventually became famous? But then, how would we know. When I become famous, and if I were to be confronted with the name SlipKid71, I would angrily deny any knowledge of that name and decry the Internet for being such a wasteland of false information and recklessness.
- Is it a hopeless pipe dream for me to suggest that we one day organize a Listology conference? Just hear me out: we could invite everyone that's made the Hall of Fame. If Jim doesn't mind, we'll hold the first annual conference in his house (just kidding!). Now, I have no idea how the hell we're going to pay for this, and if any of our Listology friends outside the USA will ever show up, but, why not, huh?
- I would also like to propose an annual "Best of Listology Awards". We can present awards for Best Overall Listologist, Best List in the (fill in the genre here) Category, Best New Listologist, etc. Of course, either lbangs or Jim might dominate the Best Listologist award, but who's to say I don't have a chance. And if I do win, I'd like my award to be presented by Halle Berry so that I can pull an Adrien Brody on her. If Halle's not available, then Scarlett Johannson will do.
