The Future of Flash Gordon

From November 17, 2013 to December 8, 2013, Josh Gordon was the greatest receiver in NFL history. He went for 125 yards in Week 11, followed that up with 237 yards in Week 12, somehow outdid himself the next week going for 261 yards, and closed with 151 yards against the Patriots. In true Browns...

Legion of Bust

The Seattle Seahawks. Just hearing their name should cause an immediate response: you either love them or you hate them. Even when I could not differentiate between the Seahawks and the Eagles, I was able to guess who the Seahawks were based on people’s reactions. They are the team you love to hate, yet being...

Rooting for L.A.’s Other Basketball Team

Because I am likely one of the only Los Angeles Clippers fans you’ll ever know in your lifetime, I’ll be the first to admit it-being a Clippers fan can be pretty miserable. L.A. loves its basketball, but the city has been a Lakers town since the organization relocated from Minneapolis in 1960. In every street…

HOT 1. New York Giants Offensive Rookies This comes in part from my own bias for my hometown team, as several rookies have helped contribute to their team’s success this year.  But on Sunday the Giants rookies were especially good, leading to a comeback victory.

You might know David Fincher, director of such films as Seven, Fight Club, and The Social Network.

What ever happened to artistry? It’s a legitimate societal concern given the omnipresence of 140-character Twitter screeds and Buzzfeed articles that pare life down to short, consumable, forgettable numbered lists. But it’s an issue that’s even more pressing in the realm of contemporary fiction itself. Recently, we’ve seen J.K. Rowling assert that Hermione would, in…

  Music biopics have a tendency to rear toward hagiography, as the stars they depict often end up falling into the stereotype of tortured genius or underdog who bucked the odds to become a superstar. These films are almost surely Oscar-bait and rarely provide new insight into the artist’s life. JIMI: All Is by My…
