I Paid a UX Expert $100 to Get Drunk and Evaluate Gizmodo's Design

It happened late on Tuesday night. Of course I was working. "Have you seen this?" my colleague Chris Mills texted. He followed up with the link to a site where a rather devilish-looking UX professional promised to get drunk and evaluate the website of your choice. Only $75! I knew I had to do it, and that Gizmodo… » 3/26/15 9:51pm 24 minutes ago

Rejoice! Alonzo Mourning Says "Who Wants To Sex Mutombo?" Happened!

Today is a great day! It's been almost a year since Dikembe Mutombo went on Highly Questionable and shot down one of the greatest urban legends in sports, denying that he ever walked into a club and shouted, "Who wants to sex Mutombo?"

Age Ain't Nothing But A Bummer: While We're Young, Reviewed

1. Of all the criticisms my fellow Gen-Xers have of Millennials, there isn't one that cracks me up more than "they're too self-involved." This is freaking rich, coming from us. Being self-involved was our thing. We were the ones who were obsessed with authenticity, and "reality," and not "selling out," even though… » 3/26/15 5:15pm Today 5:15pm

Wichita State Knows What It's Doing On Offense. At Least One Team Does.

The Wichita State Shockers are impressive for a lot of reasons—their beatdown of geographic rival Kansas and top-10 defense, or for the simple possibility that they can trade punches with Kentucky in a tournament rematch, should WSU defeat Notre Dame later tonight.

The Latest Run The Jewels Video Takes On Police Brutality

The new film for the Zack de la Rocha collab "Close Your Eyes (And Count to Fuck)" doesn't deviate from that assessment, but it's heavy and a hell of a lot more real than the rest. It makes sense, considering the video deals directly with the very… » 3/26/15 3:03pm Today 3:03pm

Timofey Mozgov's Local Commercial Is An All-Time Great

We are unabashed fans of awkward local commercials starring athletes, and this new piece of work starring Timofey Mozgov in a backwards jersey is an instant classic. Give the inspired wardrobe choice the respect it deserves, but don't let it distract you from those pained glances away from the camera. » 3/26/15 1:51pm Today 1:51pm

All The Game Of Thrones Fan Theories You Absolutely Need To Know

If there's two things fans of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series can agree on, it's that 1) author George R.R. Martin is weaving an incredibly dense tale where far more happens (and has happened) than what's just on the page, and 2) that no character is safe from GRRM's murderous pen. » 3/26/15 1:46pm Today 1:46pm
