Thanksgiving College Basketball: What to Look for at PK80

Thanksgiving is here. As the holiday pertains to college basketball, it means that we are treated to a full slate of marquee early-season tournaments, including the Phil Knight Invitational (PK80). The PK80 features 16 Nike-affiliated schools, split across two brackets, Motion and Victory, that will compete in Portland in an exciting event for college basketball...

NFL Week 11 Winners and Losers

Week 11 in the NFL was filled with tight, exciting games, with a couple blowouts along the way. Several teams solidified their spots as playoff contenders, while others made us skeptical and unsure. As we start to find out who are the contenders and who are the pretenders, here are the NFL Week 11 winners...

Skateboard Shoes, Sneaker Culture, and a Mob with Machetes

Cosigns don’t sell shoes anymore; shoot, Kylie Jenner can’t even make Pumas look cool in 2017. It takes a village to bring your clout up, something Nike Skateboarding (SB) can attest to. I don’t mean Nike as a whole, they’re doing fine. Nike SB, born in 2002, was Nike’s attempt to breach the skater culture...

Neon Trees: Burning Bright ’till the End

Like their name suggests, everything about a Neon Trees concert is dazzlingly bright. From lead singer Tyler Glenn’s glittery boots to Branden Campbell’s rhinestone studded bass guitar, there’s no shortage of onstage flash. What’s even more impressive is the band members have the energy to match, playing like it’s their first or last live show…

Formula 1: British Grand Prix Re-Cap (Ouch, Kimi!)

Formula 1: British Grand Prix Re-Cap (Ouch, Kimi!)

By:

Ouch is right. After just four corners, Scuderia Ferrari driver Kimi Räikkönen, the Iceman himself, took a turn wide, bumped back onto the track, and crashed at 150 miles per hour. The crash was immense. It’s said he experienced more than 47G—47 times the force of gravity—as he slammed into the wall, taking Williams Martini…

With a stage presence like Dave Gahan and a distinctly New Wave sound, Kitten frontwoman Chloe Chaidez is back with a vengeance. This week, after almost five years of teasing with EPs, the Los Angeles-based band finally released their eponymous debut album. It’s been a long time coming, but there’s no question that this is…

24 Hours of Le Mans 2014 Re-Cap: Next time, Porsche

24 Hours of Le Mans 2014 Re-Cap: Next time, Porsche

By:

This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans looked to be an awesome one. Narrower tires. Hybrid prototypes galore. Five-time consecutive winner Audi was back with the R18 e-tron quattro. Challenger and last year’s second-place Toyota wanted the trophy. Most importantly, Porsche was returning to Le Mans after a 16-year absence: In recent years, Le Mans has…

Critical Voices: Lucy Hale, The Road Between

Critical Voices: Lucy Hale, The Road Between

By:
06/25/2014

Lucy Hale takes a road straight through mediocre pop country on her debut LP, The Road Between. The singer turned actress turned…singer…spends the album trying to be herself but comes out something of a boring cross between herself, Taylor Swift and Miranda Lambert. Hale’s Swift songs fit the right mold. Some follow the pattern of…

In 1949, longtime San Francisco-based journalist Herb Caen published a collection of essays about the city entitled Baghdad by the Bay. (If you’re interested, it’s available for purchase here.) The moniker, which Caen came up with himself, was apparently meant to encapsulate the city’s verdant—and growing—multicultural exoticism and to conjure an association with the ancient…

Love him or hate him, Seth MacFarlane has a knack for mocking society and pop-culture.  His first feature-length film, Ted, played out like an extended episode of Family Guy, was raunchy, mildly funny, and just likable enough to be recommendable.  Following the success of this hour-and-a-half theatrical debut comes A Million Ways to Die in…

SPOILERS AHEAD! Quelle course et un Grand Prix fantastique! Even for casual viewers, the 70-lap Montreal Grand Prix at Circuit Gilles Villeneuve was quite a spectacle. For the first half or so of the race, Montreal looked to be another cut-and-dry Mercedes one-two finish. But, as Eric Cantor is well aware, nothing ever goes according…

With great music festivals come great fashion – there’s just something about festivals that bring about the daring in all most of us. Sure there were a lot of half-naked dudes running around in cargo shorts and bucket hats, and a lot of what can only be described as a festival uniform (crop top, short…

Mad Men’s season finale goes outta this world

Mad Men’s season finale goes outta this world

By:
06/09/2014

Several weeks ago, I reviewed the first episode of Mad Men’s seventh season, which is airing in two seven-episode halves a year apart on AMC. “Waterloo,” which capped off this year’s run, fittingly crowns a season centered around loss—and reconciliation to loss—in all its forms: professional and personal, foregone and forestalled, dreaded and imminent. If,…
