Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #54 Portal

Chances are, if you’ve had an Internet connection at any point during the six years, you are familiar with Portal. Created by the Internet-beloved Valve and shipped with a set of games called The Orange Box back in 2007, Portal took the gaming world by storm.

10 Things Brian Likes – #2: Hot Cinnamon Flavor

Fair warning: This is going to be by far the most “Buzzfeedy” entry in this series. In all honesty, little needs to be said here. I love hot cinnamon flavored things, and, fortunately for me, in our modern world such things exist in abundance. If you put it in your mouth, chances are there’s a…

Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #55 Forgetting Sarah Marshall

Forgetting Sarah Marshall is a very funny movie. I don’t think that is heavily disputed by too many people. Humor is also very, very subjective. I personally think Forgetting Sarah Marshall is an absolutely HILARIOUS movie. I love how quotable it is. Some hilarious movies (I’m thinking of Superbad right now) have great joke-packed scripts,…

Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #56 Final Fantasy

I am writing this while the internet is down in my house, so this will be probably be short and contain factual errors. I apologize in advance. Final Fantasy is one of those cultural touchstones for people my age (mid-twenties males). So many of us experienced the series at one point or another, often spreading…

Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #57 Reel Big Fish

Reel Big Fish is my favorite product of the “third wave of ska” from the mid-1990s. Their brand of ska-punk features melodic, flashy tunes paired with lyrics often described as “sarcastic” and “bitter.” Their music could easily have degenerated into braindead party jams, but lead songwriter and frontman Aaron Barrett keeps it funny, emotionally grounded,…
