This one goes to 11

For all you fellow listmakers out there: Here’s one you may not appreciate. But read it anyway. You may learn something

From PurpleSlinky: The top 10 reasons not to make top 10 articles.

Plus my contribution (just because I love prime numbers, palindromes and Spinal Tap references):

11. Because a Friday Five packs more punch in half the list.

Speaking of Friday Fives, there will be none tomorrow. I’m taking a brief hiatus and a long Easter weekend. In the meantime, for those of you who didn’t get the headline or photo reference (or even if you did), enjoy, and Happy Easter. (BTW, I own a knockoff of the first guitar Nigel [Christopher Guest] displays to Marty [Rob Reiner].)

  1. 1) The advice makes complete sense, though a well done list can generate a ton of traffic and thereby positively inform a lot of people.

    2) I wish I could crank it to 11. Urban apartment dwelling means “11” is a 5 watt amp with an attenuator…which is still too loud for some neighbors. God, I love that movie.
