Brian Terrill’s Small-Screen 66

Brian here! In 2013, I counted down my 100 Film Favorites. I first wrote the posts over at Brian Terrill Movie Night, and then debuted new-and-improved versions when I transplanted the series to EarnThis. Last year, I began a sequel series, looking at a few of my favorite TV shows. The “Small-Screen 66″ will be…

The Year of 100 Lists – Introduction

I’m excited to announce the Earn This project that I (and my fellow Earn This writers) will be working on in 2015: Has a nice ring, huh? The idea is this: In 2015, Earn This will be publishing, revising, or otherwise highlighting 100 different “lists” of various shapes and sizes. In other words, the “Rank…

The Top 10 Most Iconic Pop Songs of 2010-14

Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #8 Pixar

I like Pixar movies. Shocking, right? Pixar falls in the same category as John Green, elevating to a higher plane a genre that I adore but that is often dismissed as immature fun (animated films and YA lit, respectively). Simply, if you’re interested in well-told, mature, compelling stories and you’re interested in animation, then Pixar…

Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #9 Relient K

I wish that everyone can have their lives blessed with a band like Relient K in their lives: A band that so closely matches your personality and growth that listening to them sometimes feels like looking into a mirror; a band that feels like it was designed specifically for “you”; a band that you love…

Dan’s Top 100 Everything: #10 That Thing You Do!

Whenever someone asks me what my favorite movie is, I get a little bit embarrassed. “It’s called That Thing You Do! It’s a comedy from 1996,” I say. “Oh. So it’s really funny?” “Yes. Well… I mean… I personally think so. It’s not really a punchline type comedy.” “So it’s more, like, surreal? Physical comedy,…
