The Cops Don't Care About Violent Online Threats. What Do We Do Now?

I. "Hey Anna, do you like pizza?" I was just sitting down to dinner one evening this past November when I looked through some new Twitter notifications on my phone. My night, I realized regretfully, was about to get very, very stupid. » 1/29/15 4:04pm 14 minutes ago

Watch The Deadspin Super Bowl Ad That Was Too Hot For TV!  (NSFW!) 

You know the drill by now: Some dipshit company like GoDaddy or Carl's Jr. makes a lascivious Super Bowl ad, only to be bombarded with a host of last-second edits from the prudes in your average network's S&P department.

The Terse, Explosive Drug War Is Nearly As Hard As Hard Boiled Itself

The Hong Kong shoot-'em-up is a venerated cinematic genre, one that blew a whole lot of minds and changed the way all movies look, but it really had a pretty short shelf life. The halcyon era really only lasted about seven years: From 1986, when John Woo made the groundbreaking gangster flick A Better Tomorrow, to… » 1/29/15 2:51pm Today 2:51pm

Watch An Unaired Ol' Dirty Bastard Interview From 1997

MTV is unearthing a bunch of old, obscure interviews with fixtures in New York hip-hop from the late '90s and posting them on Genius. First up is one from the Ol' Dirty Bastard (RIP), where he talks about his kids, his wife, and his struggles with sobriety. It's very frank and, to be honest, a little bit sad. » 1/29/15 2:18pm Today 2:18pm

The Suns Are The Fly In The Western Conference's Ointment

The Suns whacked the Wizards, 106-98, last night in Phoenix. The game was never as competitive as the final score makes it look: The Wizards were playing their fourth game in four cities in five nights, and looked like it; the Suns hadn't played since Sunday, and looked like it. The Suns are 27-20 now, nestled into… » 1/29/15 2:05pm Today 2:05pm

Who Would Win If A Hippo Fought A Rhino? A Question For The Ages.

12

This morning, in the Deadspin staff chatroom, we found ourselves debating whether a hippopotamus or a rhinoceros would win in a head-to-head battle.

It Was Dumb To Drive Into A Desert Race With Crappy Rentals, I Now Know

We'd only been in rough stuff for a mile or so when the crashes started. "Can't carry on mate," my friend coughed as I unearthed him from a sand pit. "Welp hop in the truck, big guy," I offered with a smile and a backslap "And hangonta that roll bar like your life depends on it 'cause it's about to!" » 1/29/15 1:22pm Today 1:22pm

Andy Murray Wins Match, Notes 'Women Can Be Very Good Coaches Too'

After dramatically winning his semi-final match in the Australian Open against Tomas Berdych on Thursday, Andy Murray praised his coach Amélie Mauresmo, whom some had doubted would properly be able to lead him to victory because she is a woman. » 1/29/15 12:43pm Today 12:43pm

Q&A: John Carpenter On His New Album, And The New Images In His Head

There's no professional reason for John Carpenter to release new movies or music these days. The director-writer-producer-composer—who's shot, financed, and/or scored dozens of lauded cult films, including 1981's Escape From New York, 1982's The Thing, and 1988's They Live—has earned plenty of respect and more than… » 1/29/15 11:36am Today 11:36am

The Atlanta Hawks Are Too Good For Twitter

The Atlanta Hawks are good as hell, and they are currently riding a 17-game winning streak atop the Eastern Conference. In the early stages of the streak, whoever runs the team's official Twitter account thought it would be fun to add an extra "W" to the account's display name with each successive win. The streak has… » 1/29/15 10:51am Today 10:51am
