The List App
"Anyway, it all happened during that magical summer of 1985. A maturing Joe Piscopo left Saturday Night Live to conquer Hollywood. People Express introduced a generation of hicks to plane travel. And I was [on a list making app]"
- •I joined the List App just as I was beginnng my first real-deal career and life was in the midst of transitioning. For this reason, I know this app won't soon be forgotten.
- •A promotional tweet by BJ Novak promised a new avenue of social media. And I bit.
- •An avenue that was decently anonymous, wildly adaptable, and catered to an ilk of people with which I shared comedic and worldly sensibilities.
- •From it, an unexpected creative resurgence blossomed.
- •I'd bounce out lists on the NBA, on board games, on A Goofy Movie, on Mario Baseball, on life writ large.
- •I'd flex writing muscles otherwise tempered on my other social accounts. The List App became a destination to challenge myself to craft original, wholly authentic content.
- •I'd engage with a Jake Tapper or a Mindy Kaling through the merit of my material, not ass kissing.
- •And I'd feed on insightful, hilarious, uplifting, and awesome content produced by ordinary strangers.
- •The List App will hold an endearing spot in my memory, to be sure.
- •It's my goal to, here now or in another life [brotha], share a beer over this.
- •And by beer, I mean multiple Bud Light Platinums® and SoCo limes.
- •Take care, List App.
- •You'll be remembered for genuine people, genuine lists, the worst autocorrect in a modern iOS app, and that time John Mayer called me brilliant."One fun fact about you" forever locked down, all thanks to this crazy app.
- •Dream on, shine on, beam on, carry on.
