  • Martha vs. Gwyneth: The Battle for the Lifestyle Brand Throne

    Do you feel that icy wind blowing in, turning the leaves as it scatters them on the perishing autumn grass? That’s the sensation of being subtly frozen out by Martha Stewart, as Gwyneth Paltrow now knows. Nothing extinguishes the fire in your personal outdoor pizza oven/cult of personality like the realization that your heroes might […]

  • Another Drama-Filled LCS Doubleheader

    Two more close, low-scoring battles, two games closer to the World Series. And a few thoughts on a tense Tuesday doubleheader: There’s a belief in some corners that teams must do the little things well to survive in the postseason. The Tigers do them terribly. Detroit led the majors this season in batting average (.283), […]

  • About Last Night: Time Running Out for Dodgers

    In case you were busy remembering when Kirk Gibson made the impossible happen in the year of the improbable, here’s what you missed in sports on Tuesday: Matt Holliday and Shane Robinson hit the first two home runs of the NLCS and the St. Louis Cardinals are one game away from the World Series after […]

    Drake was going to bring auto-tuned messiah Future on the “Would You Like a Tour?” tour, everything was looking great, and then Drake found out that Future — like lots of us — wasn’t crazy about Nothing Was the Same, Drizzy’s third straight LP of rap-singing about social media. (The money quotes, from Billboard writer […]

  • Eminem, the Hardest-Working God on Rap Olympus

    By now you’ve probably heard “Rap God,” the latest track off Eminem’s upcoming The Marshall Mathers LP 2. You’ve probably marveled at its speed, its bombast, its unyielding, laser-focused attack. You may have run it back a few times, even, trying to unpack that furious blizzard of syllables Eminem unleashes in the third verse. And […]

  • 14-Day NBA Warning: Shump! Shump!

    With apologies to Charles Oakley, I feel pretty comfortable stating that Iman Shumpert is the coolest New York Knick since Clyde Frazier.
