The Requisite Lists

Everybody's got lists! Top Ten lists, Link lists, Movie Lists, Lists of Important lists, Who's In, What's Out, how would you know what to think without lists???

So here are some lists courtesy of the editors of The Spool. They're infinitely superior to those other lists because they reflect our tastes, which are both excellent and eclectic. If you find that these lists reflect your taste too you should breathe a sigh of relief that you don't have to bother creating your own website with loads of tedious lists to update. If you don't agree with our opinions, then go to the hotbot search engine and do a lookup on "absurd" and see if you come up with anything better.
