I have a pretty cool infographic for you guys today, Geeks vs. Nerds, which one are you? We see them everywhere, geeks and nerds, maybe you even see them in the mirror, but how different are they really? Well for one thing it comes down to the whole pc vs mac debate, geeks like to use macs because they’re cool where as nerds use pcs. From today’s infographic I would say the modern day geeks has a lot in common with the hipster of today. Enjoy and don’t forget to share! [via]

Pulp Fiction Chronology [infographic]

January 8, 2012 |  by  |  Entertainment, Movies  |  2 Comments

Here is the chronological sequence of the Tarantino’s cult classic Pulp Fiction. Not only is it one of the most influential independent films of all time, but the unconventional plot makes the story a labyrinth. Critics often butt heads over the simple matter of what genre this masterpiece is. It’s been called everything from “neo-noir” to black comedy to “trippy fantasy landscape”.

If you’ve seen it, I’m preaching to the converted. Unless, of course, the movie was “too weird” for you. I, for one don’t mind that. A truly unique film is a gem, especially when it is projected through cream-of-the-crop professionals. (Quentin Tarantino, Samuel L. Jackson, John Travolta and Uma Thurman, to name a few)

If you haven’t, and you’ve got an open mind… well, it’s must-see. This is film in the 90’s at it’s finest. In a rather post-modern fashion, it’s non-linear storyline intertwines the lives of all sorts of American deviants. It focuses on all the sheisty criminal activity that culminates beneath the surface of our culture.

For all the fans, here’s a dissection of the twisting, labyrinthine plot, laid out like never before. I was very pleased to find this. (via)

The Effect Your Father’s Music Has On Your Own [infographic]

Whether you like it or not, your parents play a huge role in the way you turn out. Duh. Their influence can spread from style of dress to the way you speak.

This infographic hits home personally, as I’ve  been seeing alot of distant and close relatives other the past few weeks. I quickly and easily noticed that each cousin, niece, and nephew was so different in their own way, but so much like the set of adults that birthed them. The thickness of their Louisiana accent or the inches above or below the waist they wore their pants. All identifiers they’ve acquired pointed back to  one source. The parentals.

It caused me to seek out what traits I was “blessed” to receive from my folks.

The infographic below went down a route I never considered, although it is something very noteworthy. The musical palette. In a few categories, it was spot on. I shamefully admit it picked up on my interests in Vampire Weekend and Animal Collective. But not really, because both bands rock.

Did this chart properly indicate your current day music selections? [Via]

Hitting the Slopes: Ski Destinations for Winter 2012 [infographic]

My skiing career is not something to brag about. I mean, blue and green slopes c’mon. The only time I took on a Black Diamond was on accident and I spent the rest of the hill on my butt scooting to the ski lodge.

So my Texas blood isn’t made for skiing, but I do love the mountains. Today’s infographic shows the best places to ski in Europe. Now I’ve been to Colorado, but can it compare to the Alps? I think not. Europe has always fascinated me and although I may not enjoy skiing too much I would love to take a vacation to any of these destinations.

If I had to pick I’d go with Zell Am See in Austria. I’ve been interested in Austria for sometime and a resort with an emphasis on intermediate level slopes seems like the place for me. [Via]

College Bowl Game Economics: The Cash Behind the Sport [infographic]

As a child of a college athletics marketer I have seen my fair share of college football. Ever since I was a toddler I’d be in the stands during a game completely passed out while the band blasted the fight song over and over. It took me a while to appreciate and watch the whole game, but I’m glad I do now.

This year my team, the Texas Longhorns, won their bowl game. Unfortunately after a rough season filled with interceptions and injuries they weren’t looking too hot going into the bowl game, but somehow pulled off a win. The bowl Texas played at was the Holiday Bowl. One not quite important enough to make today’s infographic.

This graphic takes a look at the Fiesta, Sugar, Orange, Rose and the BSC Championship Bowl. I may have been to the Rose Bowl twice, but I’ve missed out on some of the other big time venues.

Enough about me, let’s talk money. These bowls pull in some major cash. With directors making upwards of $500,000 and billions distributed to the local economies over the years; these college sporting events are a huge business. Be ready to join over 27 million other people watching the LSU Tigers take on Bama’s Crimson Tide this January 9th. Go Tigers! [Via]
