List It Here

SPIEGEL Interview with Umberto Eco:

'We Like Lists Because We Don't Want to Die' - SPIEGEL ONLINE - News - International



- - - - - - - -

Alright, this thread can go in either of a forked three ways, as I see it: the initial article and impetus for this topic, above, will spark enough of a motivated agreement or disagreement with the statement's of Eco among you, good participating members, about the list as a tool AND a necessity in our society, in is myriad of forms, to spawn this discussion along nicely.

Also, what could happen is just comments along the lines of 'interesting' and 'good find', pour in interspersed, which may or may not also correlate to the third option, which would be...

ALL (interesting) internet lists can be added to this thread's ever-expanding future, which will be something of a trove archive, hopefully of mostly good examples, with a few funny ones as well, to break the seriousness of a 'link listing' log. May it serve you well, or entertain you, if even only occasionally.
And I don't see why I need to, as it is implicit, but: How do lists pervade your personal everyday lives'?

personal aside:
I just realized the site, Listverse, existed about an hour and a half ago, having been redirected there.
Additionally, I had little idea that what Cracked.com mostly features is lists as well. More sources, I suppose, for others.

I initially wanted this to be a simple thread: any member comes in just for a quick view, post a link redirecting to an interesting list, and/or grab one as you go.


But..I also like to be a completist. So, this may turn out differently than I had originally hoped.


13th Street advertisement


An advertisement’s aim is to instantly attract the attention of viewers. Some use humour to
draw viewers’ attention, but there are other kinds of advertisements that go to extremes to
present something different. As a follow up to our previous article 60 Humorous Advertisements
That Will Tickle Your Bones
, today we look at the opposite extreme to using humour in advertisements.
Presenting another side to design, some of the ads shared in this article today may be
a little visually disturbing or conceptually controversial.

(the majority of the ads feature kids, sex, and smoking, sometimes all in one ad: domestic trauma)

10 Reasons Not to Bring Someone Back from the Dead | io9

---------- Post added at 08:48 PM ---------- Previous post was at 08:45 PM ----------

short little synopsis of the listing: it's another top ten indication of why resurrecting the deceased is not always a good solution in reailty or fantasy, and the author portrays the reasons through popular film and television references where the practice has backfired.

When you've got amazing technologies or strong magical powers, death doesn't have to have the final word. But is bringing the dead back to life always a good idea? We look the reasons it's better to say no to resurrection.

Top 10 Bizarre Prehistoric Animals

like... #4 The Quetzalcoatlus


The Quetzalcoatlus is said to be one of the largest, if not the largest creature, to ever roam the skies. The name comes from a reference to an Aztec god, Quetzalcoatl, who was known for being a feathered serpent. Known for living in the Late Cretaceous period, the pterodactyloid pterosaur was King of the Skies, spreading its wings to a span of up to 36 feet and standing almost 32 feet. The creature had a very pointy beak, which was used for collecting food, despite the fact that it had no teeth. The fossils were discovered and collected in Big Bend Park in Texas in 1971. It’s said that when on the ground, the animal was a quadruped, and that it had so much power that it could go straight into flight.

Do you like feature films?

Movie-list maker Brad Bourland has spent many thousands of hours over the past nine years ranking 9,331 movies. The list primarily includes films made in the English language from 1927 to 1999, and excludes documentaries, made-for-TV movies, shorts and silent films.

The 9,331 Greatest Movies Of All Time.

...AND here is the list in full, (which requires Microsoft Word or OpenOffice to download / view) along with an interview of the endeavor.

(ironic, but your string of good timing, BadNick, has disrupted my universally good/bad lucky timing... at least I secured the 13th reply, it would have been something though if I got the 13th post.)

The hidden track dates all the way back to The Beatles' Abbey Road, which includes "Her Majesty," a 23-second unlisted song at the end of the album's second side. Since then, many bands have surprised their fans with secret songs, though many of them are merely discordant noise or otherwise eminently forgettable. Sometimes, though, these tracks are hidden gems that deserve to be heard. For that reason, we decided to put together a list of the very best hidden tracks, and listened to dozens of them to find the standouts. So without further ado, here are the Top 13 Hidden Tracks.

7 Insane Ways Music Affects The Body (According to Science) | Cracked.com

example #4. Music aids to help quell and actually prevent oncoming seizures.

It's been shown that music by Mozart played on the piano reduces seizure-causing activity in the brain within five minutes of exposure, with many cases showing immediate results in what scientists should called Seizure Wolfgang-banging. Experimentation with other forms of music has been minimal, but for some reason there appears to be a connection between our brains and piano music.

This special Wayback collection pays tribute to the websites that shaped the character of the net in the early years:
irreverent, Star Trek obsessed, visionary. Many of the websites featured in this special Wayback collection were
already on the web by 1993 or even earlier, a full three years before we began archiving the net.
They were the early settlers - the web pioneers.

My favorite part of the "Back to the Future" trilogy is the first half hour of "Back to the Future Part II"... where Doc and Marty travel to 2015. Seeing them in the past was OK, seeing them in the Wild West was eh, but seeing them in the future remains, for me, the most entertaining and memorable part of all three movies.

So, since it's (2010 and we're only six-and-a-half years away from the future they traveled to (October 2015)... I think we're close enough to do an audit. How'd they do? How accurate were their predictions?

The 120 Minutes Archive.

Since 2003, we’ve been traveling back through time to rediscover and preserve the history of the legendary MTV U.S. series, 120 Minutes, which played alternative music videos with VJs, guests, and live performances, as well as its official successor, Subterranean on MTV2.

Music videos still exist, of course, but it’s just not the same. We want to remember some of MTV’s better moments, so we’ve assembled an incredible archive of playlists, videos, and interviews.

From what I've come across and researched, there is nothing out there that is as comprehensive and information-worthy as this specifically-oriented archival database; the only two other resources that can even really compare to it are IMDb and Wikipedia, but combined.

Really, it's uniquely unparalleled in what it delivers to its audience, and if you are a fan, it is, indeed, awesome.
It is: BCDB - The Big Cartoon DataBase

Since the late 1990s, The New Yorker has taken advantage of computer and Internet technologies for the release of current and archival material. The New Yorker maintains a website with some content from the current issue (plus exclusive web-only content). Subscribers have access to the full current issue online, as well as a complete archive of back issues viewable as they were originally printed. As well, The New Yorker's cartoons are available for purchase online. Using techology developed by Bondi Digital Publishing, a complete digital archive of back issues from 1925 to April 2007 (representing more than 4,000 issues and half a million pages) is available on nine DVD-ROMs or on a small portable hard drive.

Archive : The New Yorker
(sadly, the complete archive is reserved for subscribers, and only a fraction of it is available for free; but, that should be more than enough for the interested casual reader)

another photo-concept gallery: The Beauty of Beaten Up Vehicles (10 total) - My Modern Metropolis

What is it about Kevin Cyr's oil paintings of beaten up vans and trucks that's so beautiful?
Is it that we're reminded of our childhood, remembering the excitement we felt when we heard the grumbling of a truck?
Or is it that we find unexpected beauty in used and slightly abused objects?

Kevin states, "I commemorate commercial vehicles inundated with graffiti and rust. Removing them from their everyday context, I place them on a solid color field giving them portrait-like importance. With devoted attention, I paint every imperfection and sign of age. Isolating these objects allows me a chance to document a time and place, and to make still a part of the ever-changing urban environment."

15 Great Scenes That Were Unscripted - Listverse

excerpt:
The Empire Strikes Back
“I love you.” “I know”. (Irvin Kershner, 1980)


Harrison Ford plays the cocky rogue, Han Solo, and in one of his rare scenes where the script required him to show some compassion, the act Ford had cemented for Solo was so strong that the original line, “I love you too” didn’t work. George Lucas told Ford to just say what he thought was best and “I know” was the result, fitting in with his character’s persona perfectly.

Fact: Carrie Fisher stood on a box for many of her scenes with Harrison Ford in order to make up for the height difference and have her appear in the frame with him. Carrie Fisher is about a foot shorter than Harrison Ford.
