Why lists?

People like lists. Or so it seems. Because people ask me all the time "Why don't you do lists?" Really, they do. They stop me on the street, and uniformly when they do, I am asked two questions:

1. How can you possibly be so handsome? and
2. Why don't you do lists on your website?*

*(note: at least one of these questions has never been asked of me.)

So I've decided to do lists, along with the usual essays on Pop Culture. After all, TBOE began with one idea, then slowlly shifted into what it is now... which is sort of essays about pop culture mixed in with things I think are the Best and occasional reader additions... so it can change a little more, right?

If anything, it will reduce the number of questions I am asked on the street by 50%.
