Jonathan Franzen Wants To Bone Pip, I Think?

So Jonathan Franzen is doing kind of a weird thing in the early going of Purity, his latest novel. He’s not the first author to do a version of this weird thing, but the particular way he’s doing it, at least so far, made me want to write about it now, before I’ve finished the entire book. » 9/02/15 12:49pm 38 minutes ago

The New Miley Cyrus Record Is Exhausting, But Might Be Worth It Anyway

So what we’ve got here is Miley Cyrus singing a morbid piano ballad called “Pablow the Blowfish.” She’s wearing fluffy unicorn pajamas and playing an electric piano in an ersatz cornfield; additional props include a stuffed unicorn on a stool and an inflatable Super Mario Bros. power-up mushroom. Verily, the song is… » 9/02/15 12:20pm Today 12:20pm

Was Banning Tyler, the Creator, the Victory International Feminism Needed?

Soccer Lady Has Absolutely Zero Aiming Skills, Scores Awful Own Goal

The announcer had the correct reaction to Helén Eke’s foot mysteriously turning into jelly upon contact with the ball: “Nej nej nej!” As did Eke, who attempted to tear off her ponytail, no doubt to disguise her appearance so that she could creep out of the stadium and hide under a rock for the next three to four… » 9/02/15 10:59am Today 10:59am

Texans Owner: J.J. Watt Wouldn't Have Destroyed His Cell Phone

Is today the day? The day of the judge’s ruling that’ll deliver us from the seven-plus months of emetic debate over deflated footballs? (Or leads to an further arbitration or an appeal, in which case there may never be an end to Ballghazi.) Better cram in all the peripheral news while we still can. Like Houston Texans… » 9/02/15 9:26am Today 9:26am

Report: Bills GM "Went Rogue" In Cutting Fred Jackson

It didn’t come entirely as a surprise when the Bills released Fred Jackson on Sunday. Preseason rosters had be cut down by Tuesday, and the NFL’s oldest running back didn’t figure to pick up a lot of touches behind newly-acquired LeSean McCoy.
