Bucket Lists everywhere

 

Is it just me or is the world talking a lot about Bucket Lists?  On Twitter, I 'm alerted for anytime someone tweets using the term #bucketlist, and I literally get alerts multple times a day. 

But I also see the Bucket List concept playing out in mainstream media as well.  Of course, things got going with the 1999 book by Dave Freeman, "100 things to do before you die".  Not sure if any of the items on the Bucket Quiz (started in 1997) was on his list.  But things really accelerated with the 2007 movie release of "The Bucket List" starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman.  But elsewhere too.  Anyone seen "The Buried Life" on MTV about four friends touring the country in search of 100 things to do before you die?  Sound familar?  I wonder if they ever took the Bucket Quiz?

And, when you do a search on Amazon.com, there are 183 results for "bucket list".  Today there are many books and audio tapes on different philosophies and approaches to the Bucket List concept.  My favorite: "How Full Is Your Bucket? For Kids". 

I'm sure I've missed quite a few other examples.  Care to share?  The comments section awaits.
