Top Ten Lists are a popular and easy blog choice. This blog is mostly designed to look at Top Ten Lists in different ways.
TOP 10 Top X LISTS
As the introduction says these posts are about those lists that you see over and over again. Everyone has an opinion on the Top 10 of a certain subject and everyone wants to share their opinions.
Each entry includes my choice of the Ten best of these lists, the single worst list and compiles a top ten list based on what appears highest of the other lists.
OVERTHINKING THE EVIL OVERLORD LIST
As the introduction says these articles look at the classic internet meme “If I Were An Evil Overlord…” list. Just as the original list has fun with the pitfalls and cliches that films fall into, these articles have fun with the pitfalls that the list falls into.
- “While it may be tempting to use an Ultimate Weapon or Spell with a rare, almost impossible to exploit tiny flaw to accomplish my goals, if many Penultimate Weapons or Spells with no such flaw can achieve the same effect, I will employ them instead.”
- “While deformed mutants and oddball psychotics will certainly have their place in my Legions of Terror, I will not send them out on missions that require tact or subtlety.”
TOP X THINGS YOU PROBABLY DID KNOW ABOUT…
A popular format for a list is to call it “10 Things You Didn’t Know About…” a topic. Rather than a chance for education, I see them as a challenge. I read them wondering how many I really do know. These articles are to introduce a list of this type and offer a survey to see if it’s true that people didn’t already know this things. See the introduction for more information.
RANDOM TOP TEN LISTS
Because they’re easy and can be used as filler, I do the occasional Top Ten list myself, both on this Blog (RANDOM TOP X) and on other blogs (MY TOP X):
- RANDOM TOP X – 10 Things about House of Cards (UK) before you watch it.
- MY TOP X – Top Ten Lists By Me.
