NEW NONFICTION (NEWS) 306.0973 INV
Pop culture lover? Fanatically devoted to the preparation of lists? Reader of the A.V. Club? Then this is the book for you! Compiled by writers of the A.V. Club, this book gives you lists with unique slants. Nothing boring here like Top Ten Comedies, Dramas, etc. Instead you get lists with titles like "The Movies Don't Want You, Tony Danza: 28-Plus Films That Failed to Make Movie Stars out of TV Stars." The book also features guest lists from celebrities including Andrew W.K., Amy Sedaris, Tom Lennon, Zach Galifianakis, "Weird Al" Yankovic, Patton Oswalt, Paul Thomas Anderson, and more.
Some of my favorite lists featured in the book:
- "None of These Excuse My Super Sweet 16: 22 Shows That Prove MTV Actually Brought Some Good into the World"
- "Stick Around for the Ghost Monkey: 22 Movies with Post-Credit Surprises"
- "Quick, Man! Cling Tenaciously to my Buttocks!: 21 Children's TV Shows That Found Adult Audiences"
- "Chicken Salad Between the Knees: 16 Film and TV Characters Who Know Exactly What They'd Like to Eat"
