If you are a frequent reader, you know how much I like finding odd and unique taxonomies. I find it a comforting to know that taxonomies exist in all parts of our lives, not just information science or biology. That might be a result of my undiagnosed OCD, but oh well.

Today’s find comes from the world of entertainment: (https://www.primetimer.com/features/curb-your-enthusiasms-legacy-of-guest-stars ). Curb Your Enthusiasm has been an HBO series for 20 years, with a few breaks along the way. One of the attractions, besides Larry David himself, is the constant conveyor belt of entertainment stars playing themselves.

Though this is less of a taxonomy and more of a classification or collation, it is nevertheless, an interesting way to look at any group of things or people.

This is a comprehensive look back at some of the show’s best, worst, and most notable guest stars. The author lists Jerry Seinfeld as the best guest. Interestingly, considering their shared history, Jerry stayed away from the show until the 7th season.

This is but one example of many unique taxonomies. I personally have not been a fan or frequent viewer of the show, but my father-in-law is possibly their number one fan. So this was for Arthur.
