Dan’s BOTTOM Everything: Deadspin

Every 25 entries, I’m going to take a break listing my favorite things to talk about something I don’t like: Deadspin is easily my least favorite website that I regularly visit. They’re the sports wing of the Gawker empire and a frustrating, mean-spirited, unambitious web site that does more to poison online discussion about sports…

Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #51 Dumb and Dumber

Today’s entry is presented through some of my favorite clips and quotes from Dumb & Dumber.  Sometimes, when I tell people that Dumb and Dumber is one of my favorite movies, they just sort of look at me in confused silence… It’s a dumb Jim Carrey movie from the 1990’s with almost no plot, they…

Louis CK

Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #52 Louis CK

It’s a cliche for white males under the age of thirty, but my favorite comedian is definitely Louis CK. Prolific, hilarious, and insightful in a dark sort of way, CK is always a delight. He’s also someone whose creative career I admire. There’s an independence and perseverance about him that carries over in everything he…

Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #53 Jim Croce

Jim Croce is one of my all-time sentimental favorites, the first of several artists I fell in love with by picking up a CD I found on my dad’s bookshelf, putting it into my boombox, and pressing play. Croce released five albums in the 1960s and early 1970s, and almost all of his songs of…

The Top 100 Ska-Punk Songs: #70-61

This is part 4 of Will’s countdown of the top 100 ska-punk songs 70. Stuck in the Middle – The Supervillains I had the privilege of seeing The Supervillains live when I was a sophomore in high school. I immediately liked them, but I didn’t really dig through their discography until just last year, when…

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. Three years later, Valve released the eagerly awaited sequel,…

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,…
