  • Explicitly Laid Out Like a Fruitcake: A Short History of 16 Guided by Voices Shows

  • What’s Wrong With the Padres?

    The Padres are an undercapitalized team, screwed by shady owners and playing in a division with two financial powerhouses. They’ve been completely clueless on how to build a winning team at Petco Park since the day it opened.

    On Tuesday we found out how far LeBron’s really come after four years and two titles. If he only looked like an empowered superstar in 2010, in 2014 we’re seeing the real thing. The talent to make Finals runs basically starts and ends with him, and he knows it.

  • Lost in Translation

    Damon Lindelof returns to TV with HBO’s deeply dark ‘The Leftovers.’

  • Warner Bros. Has Selected the Next Big Young-Adult Adaptation

    After a long train of ‘Harry Potters’ and ‘Twilights’ and ‘Hunger Gameses,’ ‘The Fault in Our Stars’ served as a reminder that YA = $$, and that the subject matter doesn’t have to be fantastical or dystopian to yield a strong turnout.

  • About Last Night: The Bitin’ Bandit Returns!

    In case you were jet-setting down to Brazil like some kind of hipster hotshot, leaving About Last Night in the hands of an unstable sociopath, here’s what you missed in sports on Tuesday.
