Train Horns That Keep Me And My Wife Awake At Night, Ranked

My wife and I recently moved to a house in the Dunbar/Spring neighborhood of Tucson, Ariz. Because we had never visited the house in the middle of the night, we didn't realize quite how loud the freight-train horns were. We have adjusted, in part with the help of earplugs. (To spoil another potential list, let me… » 2/16/15 12:49pm 2/16/15 12:49pm

46 Times Vox Totally Fucked Up A Story

If you work in the media, you're going to get things wrong. Accuracy and timeliness are in conflict, and when you're dealing with vast amounts of information, accuracy will sometimes suffer. No one is happy about this, but it's how it is, and this is the tradeoff you implicitly accept when reading news. If you are… » 12/30/14 2:52pm 12/30/14 2:52pm

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… » 11/12/14 10:23am 11/12/14 10:23am

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

Taste Test: Milk And Honey Original Café Mix, The Alleged Best Cereal

Back in February, our Tim Marchman posted a list that purported to rank breakfast cereals in order of deliciousness. His selection of something called "Milk and Honey Original Café Mix" for the top spot—on what's a pretty comprehensive list of the breakfast cereals you can find in your typical supermarket, mind… » 7/31/14 5:02pm 7/31/14 5:02pm

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

American IPAs, Ranked

The British invented India pale ale in the 18th century, but despite having been born in one foreign country and named for another, IPA has evolved into a distinctly American art form. Excellent IPAs are now made all over the world, but America's unrivaled dedication to hops and bombast have effectively made this… » 6/30/14 10:13am 6/30/14 10:13am

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
