  • About Last Night: The Perfect Pacers

    In case you were busy telling one of your employees to hit another one of your employees to settle an interpersonal workplace dispute, here’s what you missed in sports on Wednesday: A fourth-quarter surge from the Pacers’ reserves turned a close game between division rivals into a blowout, as Indiana ran away from the Bulls […]

  • Man Up

    Declaring a war on warrior culture in the wake of the Miami Dolphins bullying scandal.

  • Afternoon Links: SNL’s Wes Anderson Parody Was Quite the Gambit

    Don’t even tell me you didn’t catch SNL‘s immaculately detailed Wes Anderson tribute/homage, The Midnight Coterie of Sinister Intruders. (It happened on Ed Norton’s episode a couple Saturdays ago, and it’s embedded again here for the uninitiated.) Despite an insane amount of work going into the short film, the final product barely made it to […]

  • NBA Regular-Season Championship Belt Game Alert: Warriors vs. Timberwolves

    Last week, we introduced the NBA Regular-Season Championship Belt — a season-long King of the Hill competition to make seemingly inconsequential matchups very friggin’ consequential. The idea came from this awesome thread on the /r/NBA board over on Reddit. Miami came into the regular season holding the belt, but lost it to the Sixers in […]

  • NBA Betting Lines: Into the Void

    I recently sent an uncomfortably large PayPal check to an old friend to cover what I owed him from roughly 80 games of online Scrabble played at stakes between $40 and $240. I average about 340 points per game in Scrabble. My friend, who is mostly illiterate and challenges words like “lenient,” averages 360 because […]

  • Q&A: Producer Jeff Bass on Discovering Young Eminem: ‘He Was Sitting on the Toilet, and He Came Up With the Alter Ego’

    You may have never heard of the Bass Brothers. But you’ve heard the Bass Brothers.

  • It Is the Most Logical Thing in the World That Lady Gaga Will Try to Sing in Space

    You and I have both read about plans to jettison celebrities into space — not because an international tribal council voted them off the earth, but just ’cause. They’re rich, space is there, they probably hadn’t seen Gravity before signing up, and maybe Richard Branson threw them some money. Who knows? I’m not even sure if […]
