Times Of Day To Have Some Damn Peace And Quiet Around Here, Ranked

When you are a Sad Dad, one of the things you spend the most time pining for—after, like, an actual grown-up date with your spouse, a window of more than five minutes in which to take a shower, and relief from the constant background awareness of your own bottomless inadequacy—is some damn peace and quiet. "Can we… » 11/17/14 3:59pm 11/17/14 3:59pm

DJ Drama's Gangsta Grillz Mixtapes, Ranked

DJ Drama is arguably the most prolific and important DJ of the Golden Mixtape Era, which started roughly a decade ago and is still going strong—among rap heavyweights, only DJ Khaled comes close. The Philadelphia native somehow made himself the face of underground Southern hip-hop, proving instrumental in the rise of… » 11/12/14 10:23am 11/12/14 10:23am

27 Pumpkin Beers, Ranked

There are two kinds of people: those who embrace Pumpkin-Spice-Everything Season for the miracle that it is, and the godless, gourdless heathens who reject it and live a bland, spiceless life. I fall into the former category, which means it's time to combine two of my favorite activities: drinking pumpkin beers and… » 10/24/14 3:56pm 10/24/14 3:56pm

The Lost Cast’s Post-Lost Careers, Ranked

Theoretically, Lost was a career-making show. That's certainly been true for the people behind the scenes, starting with co-creator J.J. Abrams, who parlayed his infinite geek cred into control of both the Star Trek and Star Wars franchises. He's essentially double-fisting holy grails. Showrunners Damon Lindelof and… » 9/22/14 1:20pm 9/22/14 1:20pm

You Could Watch Floyd Mayweather's Shitty, Overpriced PPV. But Why?

Since our article on Floyd Mayweather ran in July, I've received notes from countless fans and even a number of professional boxing writers who've said that they cannot continue to support a man with his history of battering women and utter lack of remorse. Even ESPN got in on the act—well, ESPNw did, to be more… » 9/13/14 5:37pm 9/13/14 5:37pm

Actually, Here Is A Good Ranking Of The Fruits

Many internet web sites like to rank the fruits. You can see right away that these rankings are wrong and bad, both because their results are stupid, and for the reason those results are stupid, which is that they were assembled using a lousy-ass amateurish methodology. Amateur bush-league-ass fruit-rankers are… » 8/14/14 2:15pm 8/14/14 2:15pm

Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp 12-Pack, Ranked

Last week, I said that the current number of breweries in the United States—we're up to a bit more than 3,000—is unsustainable, and I was probably wrong. As long as these fledgling operations keep a modest focus on their home markets, there's no reason we can't have a German-style system that supports nano breweries… » 8/01/14 11:25am 8/01/14 11:25am

Does Sharknado Crack The Shitty Movie Hall Of Fame?

There's been a lot of press surrounding last night's Syfy debut of Sharknado 2: The Second One. Which makes sense, given that last year's original was a smash success (as far as these types of movies go), and the sequel takes place in New York, where there's not just a high concentration of media members, but a high… » 7/31/14 3:02pm 7/31/14 3:02pm

From Slacker to Boyhood: Ranking Richard Linklater's Movies

4

Today, Richard Linklater's acclaimed Boyhood (which we love) opens in select cities. (It'll be expanding next week and be practically everywhere by mid-August.) To celebrate, we decided to rank all 16 of the man's commercial features, and what we hope you'll notice is that over a 23-year career, he's had one hell of a… » 7/11/14 2:25pm 7/11/14 2:25pm

M&M's Flavors, Ranked

There's plenty to mock about the leaders of the dude-food movement—Fieri, Zimmern, the Epic Meal Timers—and their bag-tag army of regular doofs united by pork-themed t-shirts and their exaggerated disdain for small plates and Whole Foods. But we're not here to make fun of their indoor sunglasses or their spicy… » 6/25/14 2:22pm 6/25/14 2:22pm

Who Was The Best Oscars Host Of The Past 25 Years?

11. James Franco and Anne Hathaway (2011). Always beware of courting the "young," particularly two young people who are basically 50-year-olds in grownup clothing. Franco, stripped of all self-referential schtick, turned into an empty suit with nowhere to hide, and Hathaway's desperate attempts to pep up the room made… » 3/03/14 12:53pm 3/03/14 12:53pm

Who Are The Best Dribblers In Champions League? A Ranking, 1 To 160

Dribbling is the most visually striking aspect of soccer. The excitement in the game flows from both nearly and actually made goals, and the beauty from the intricate passing and telekinetic movement of a true team. But from a strictly visual perspective, there is no clearer demonstration of mastery than the dribble. » 2/20/14 10:52am 2/20/14 10:52am
