2 Chainz Is A Good Instagram Dad

So 2 Chainz is a rapper who changed his name from Tity Boi to be more family-friendly. Which is funny, and also not all that weird, when you think about both how much he wants to sell records and how much he loves his two daughters, Heaven and Harmony. If Instagram counted in real life, the Atlanta emcee would be Rap… » 3/05/15 4:39pm Yesterday 4:39pm

The Best Beer Is From Oklahoma (Naturally)

On Friday night, I had the distinctly fat and drunk pleasure of attending Drink Craft Beer's Boston Cheese and Beer Fest. The pleasure was provided by the obvious means—one of the cheeses had cumin seeds right inside it! the beers were mostly good and occasionally excellent!—and also via some less obvious routes. » 3/05/15 2:20pm Yesterday 2:20pm

How to Survive Your First Tech Job

Tech companies make my blood boil. I live in San Francisco, where I'm surrounded by them. What's worse, I'm surrounded by their employees—by droves of social-media strategists and integrated-marketing specialists, by dev-ops leads and database engineers, by bro-grammers. So, so many bro-grammers. This phylum… » 3/05/15 1:30pm Yesterday 1:30pm

Drink The Kool-Aid: Why True/False Is Our Best Little Film Festival

How To Get Your Ass Back In Shape, And Keep It There

Now that the New Year's Resolutions crowd has cleared out of the gym, it's time to get down to business. The goal is not to become CrossFit truthers or pot-smoking ultramarathoners, but to simply avoid racking up massive medical bills due to poor health as we continue our slow, inevitable march to death. And… » 3/04/15 2:04pm Wednesday 2:04pm

Rae Sremmurd Are Human Adderall

If you're like me, you didn't immediately get Rae Sremmurd, because you have a 401k and your hangovers are starting to get worse and you're beginning to feel the oppressiveness of your own mortality. But the pop-rap duo is great and fun—likely created by producer Mike Will Made It in a chemistry-lab-like setting, the… » 3/03/15 3:50pm Tuesday 3:50pm

A Modestly Spectacular Maine Beer Worth Standing In Line For

Lately, most beer manufacturers across both the size and quality spectrums have been inching toward the Cheesecake Factory production model, wherein they roll out endless streams of new products in a desperate attempt to stay relevant by being all buffalo-sauced things to all baked-stuffed people. » 3/03/15 1:44pm Tuesday 1:44pm

Whiny Harvard Student Gets Skewered In Devastating Email

In the old days, disputes between Harvard students were settled one of three ways: pistols at dawn, a scullerman's joust, or trial by mayonnaise. Things have changed, though, and now the distinguished men of Harvard engage in combat like most millennials do: by sending unbearably long emails to each other that… » 3/02/15 4:59pm Monday 4:59pm

Rich Gang Might Be Breaking Up, But It's Fine

Moment of silence, please. Last week, rapper Rich Homie Quan went on Atlanta's Hot 107.9 and said he was taking a break from Rich Gang, his celebrated duo with Young Thug. (As you'll recall, their Tha Tour Part 1 was one of the best mixtapes of 2014.) Which means it's probably the beginning of the end for those two.… » 3/02/15 4:11pm Monday 4:11pm

A Squeamish New Dad's Guide To Diapers

In Act of Valor, the 2012 movie where real active-duty Navy SEALs play fictional active-duty Navy SEALs, there's a moment where two elite, hardened warriors are discussing fatherhood, and one of them mentions the scariest thing about it: diapers.

How To Make Arrabbiata Sauce, The Angriest, Loveliest Sauce Of All

Picture, in your mind, a mundane interaction between any two regular, essentially happy Italian people. One purchasing a packet of chewing gum from the other, for example. Can you picture it? The screaming, the wild gesticulating, the red faces, the flashing whites of crazed eyes and bared teeth, the elaborate… » 2/28/15 12:23pm Saturday 12:23pm
