Agent Palmer’s Top Ten College Movies (Prepared for Reasons Are Several Podcast)

Agent Palmers Top Ten College Movies

As a regular listener of Reasons Are Several podcast, I was excited to hear Episode 84 where Matt and Scott ranked their Top 10 High School Movies. After the episode, I tweeted and asked when they were going to do their Top 10 College Movies?

Next week wasn’t the answer, so I have decided to write this post in the hopes of giving them a third list to compare with their own lists, when they get to their college movies list.

My Fellow Geeks Went to San Diego Comic Con 2015 and All I Got was this Lousy Shirt Amazing List

San Diego Comic Con 2015

This past weekend thousands of my fellow geeks descended upon San Diego, California for the 2015 Edition of the Annual San Diego Comic Con. And while I did not attend, I kept a keen eye on my Twitter feed.

Unlike most Comic Conventions, San Diego Comic Con isn’t just about the comic books; their artists and writers, it’s become an annual launchpad for movies and television announcements and debuts.

Top 50 Duke Nukem Quotes from the Franchise

Top 50 Duke Nukem Quotes from the Franchise

One of the more endearing parts of the Duke Nukem franchise from Duke Nukem 3D to Duke Nukem Forever and everything in between are the quotes that spew from Duke’s mouth throughout the gameplay in single-player and multi-player modes.

With that in mind, I have compiled a list of the top 50 things Duke has said throughout the franchise. They are full of pop culture references and quotes from other characters; Yoda from Star Wars and Ash from the Evil Dead franchise, as well as some great quips putting down other entities, such as the Quake and short-lived XFL.

The 2014 Tour de France ran from July 5th to July 27th. This 101st edition of the Tour was made up of 21 stages and covered 3,664 km, containing nine flat stages, five hill stages, six mountain stages with five mountaintop finishes, one time trial and two rest days.

The Tour started in England lost a few big names along the way to Paris. In their absence the race was still competitive, for the Sprinter’s Green and King of the Mountain’s Polka Dot Jerseys. The Yellow Jersey and General Classification was decided early quite early on, with Vincenzo Nibali’s performance in Stage 2 and the withdrawal of both Christopher Froome and Alberto Contador.

Top 10 Moments from the 2013 Tour de France

100th running of the Tour de France

The 100th running of the Tour de France concluded today in the twilight on the Champs-Élysées in Paris. I can’t really vouch for any of the riders, but this has been the cleanest Tour to date (last year I listed my Top 5 Non-Doping Moments), with the exception that the French press is always looking for doping in any foreign rider who’s winning.

There were quite a few highlights, many more than 10, none-the-less here are my Top 10 moments from the 2013 Tour de France, in no particular order.
