R.I.P. LIST SEASON 2009

January 10, 2010

It’s a new year now, and all the blogs are coming back from their holiday breaks. Your friendly neighborhood Yetibloggers took a longer break that we left early for, because Blogging Never Sleeps, except when it does because shut up, you! So our coverage of the internet/universe or “interverse” was missing a linchpin of blogging, without which the whole enterprise falls apart: Lists.

As everyone knows, the end of the year is List Season in Blog Land. We all get List Fever and make lists of things that have something to do with our blogs. The specific causes of List Fever remain unknown, but it probably has something to do with taking our world, the chaos and madness of which becomes more apparent with each passing moment, and forcing some order upon it. Or whatever. Anyway List Fever happens.

We at The Yetiblog are no different! We blog, therefore we are (making lists). It’s in The Official Rules of Blogging.

THE OFFICIAL RULES OF BLOGGING

  1. ABL: Always Be Linking to stuff.
  2. Snark?
  3. Make lists  of stuff at year’s end.

Yay, our first list!

This season was great for lists, because on top of being the end of the year, it was also the end of the decade. So there were normal year-end lists and superspecial Decade Edition lists. A lot of them! There were plenty of great ones, and there were even Lists of Lists, and there’s probably a Best Lists of 2009 and a Best Lists: Decade Edition somewhere in Blog Land. I don’t know where they are, I’m not a Listologist (practitioner of the List Sciences). But they’re out there, probably!

ANDY’S FAVORITE LISTS OF 2009

Second list! Just gathering momentum.

After the jump are some more lists, compiled by your friendly neighborhood Yetiblog editor, with some help from the good Listologists at the Institute of Duh:

WE PITY THE FOOLS WHO DON’T REMEMBER THESE PSAs

November 16, 2009

Remember the good old days when random celebrity PSAs on television were the norm? Even if you don’t, do yourself a favor and check out these two gems.

Paul Reubens never disappoints when it comes to being creepy, especially when talking about crack. My mother always told me that every time Pee Wee Herman stares into your soul through the TV screen, an angel gets its wings.

As for Mr. T’s PSA, who decided to dress him up in glasses and a polka dot bow-tie? We all know the man is big teddy bear at heart, there’s no need to make him look like a dork.

Seriously though, kids: always remember to drink your school, stay in drugs, and don’t do milk.
