Iggy Azalea Raps, Sounds Like A Sputtering Lawnmower

Not long ago, a Vine of Iggy Azalea rapping an indecipherable string of nonsense words began making its way around the internet. As it turns out, that Vine only captured the tail end of a much longer, even more indecipherable display of nonsense rapping. » 3/27/15 2:34pm Friday 2:34pm

T-Pain Is Back

There was a time in the early-mid 2000s when you couldn't turn on the radio without hearing a T-Pain song, but then he pretty much went silent for the four years following the flop of his last album, Revolver. Today, he dropped the DJ Drama-hosted mixtape The Iron Way, and I think it's safe to say Teddy Bend-Er-Ass… » 3/27/15 1:56pm Friday 1:56pm

A Lot Of Extreme Beer Sucks, But This One Is Great

Last weekend I skipped the Beer Advocate Extreme Beer Festival, even though it was five miles from my home and tickets didn't cost any more than what I blow on beer any given day off anyway. I regret not going. It would have been fun, and it would have made me better at my ridiculous how-is-this-an-actual-job? job,… » 3/27/15 11:50am Friday 11:50am

This Amazing Grandma Really Knows How To Sell A House

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 5:10pm Thursday 5:10pm

The Latest Run The Jewels Video Takes On Police Brutality

Every music video off Run The Jewels 2 has been so good and different. 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 3:02pm Thursday 3:02pm

Chocolate Is A Martial-Arts Classic If You Just Focus On The Kicking

So Chocolate is not Chocolat, the 2000 Johnny Depp/Juliet Binoche movie where people eat chocolate from a particular shop and it somehow makes them fall in love with each other. Chocolat is the sort of movie where you know it takes place in France because people speak English in French accents. It was nominated for a… » 3/26/15 2:55pm Thursday 2:55pm

Michael Jackson's Moonwalk Is Old Enough To Be Somebody's Ornery Dad 

This day in 1983 was the taping of the Motown 25 TV special. It was a great night, with performances from Stevie Wonder, a reunion for the Supremes, and a rare TV appearance from Marvin Gaye. But it was also an important night, because it was witness to a huge transformation. It was the first time Michael Jackson ever… » 3/25/15 5:35pm Wednesday 5:35pm

Ebony And Agony: Get Hard, Reviewed

Despite how broad and silly they are, Will Ferrell's movies often have a stealth political side to them. When he works with his longtime creative partner, director and co-writer Adam McKay, he usually manages to address current events in a way that's pointed without being preachy. Everybody loves Anchorman because… » 3/25/15 4:20pm Wednesday 4:20pm

RIP Kroll Show, The Meta Sketch Comedy TV Needed

Last night was the series finale of Nick Kroll's Comedy Central series, Kroll Show. It was short but sweet—just three seasons of sketch comedy television parody. It took us into the alternate TV Universe of Nick Kroll's weird brand of comedy. It was a cable TV universe that is much like the one that exists in reality,… » 3/25/15 2:40pm Wednesday 2:40pm

This Fashion Writer Gives The Fewest Fucks

Earlier today, our Leslie Horn pointed the Deadspin staff to a short post by Vogue writer Lynn Yaeger on what it was like to wear a sweatshirt for the first time in her life. It begins as follows and improves from there: » 3/25/15 2:24pm Wednesday 2:24pm


Holy fuck! Holy Christ goddamn! That one guy from One Direction quit! The weed dealer looking one! That one that did that thing with the hair! YOU KNOW THE ONE. No, not Harry. You fucking asshole. The other one. THE HOT ONE. I know they're ALL hot ones, but Zach (Is that his name? Wait, his name is Zayn?)… » 3/25/15 1:30pm Wednesday 1:30pm

Local Beer Is Great, But Fresh Beer Is Better

I'm lukewarm on most traditional holidays, the ones that require shopping and showering and dancing around maypoles and/or respectful disbelief in the supernatural; some of these holidays come with ham and presents, but even then the risks can outweigh the rewards. I still consider myself a joyous, festive,… » 3/25/15 11:40am Wednesday 11:40am

Spring Breaker Starts Fight, Flees, Receives Karmic Comeuppance

It's hard to believe that the knob in this video, who embodies every spring break stereotype—neon tank top, bad sandals, dumb sunglasses, urging other bros to come at him while he backs away—is even real, but here we are. I won't spoil what happens, but get ready to wish you had been there to laugh in this guy's face. » 3/24/15 4:45pm Tuesday 4:45pm

What Would You Pick If You Had To Drink The Same Three Beers Forever?

Yesterday afternoon some kindly internet stranger asked me what local beers I recommend he stock up on during his next trip to my home state. I refused to answer him on the grounds that Massachusetts is no mere "state"—we are a proud commonwealth of men and women united by loyalty to our official bird (either a… » 3/24/15 2:15pm Tuesday 2:15pm

Pliny The Elder And Blind Pig: Trophy Beers Within Everyone's Grasp

First off, let me introduce myself: My name is Mike, and I have been given the dubious honor of being named Drunkspin's West Coast Beer Correspondent, which means that every now and then you'll see some writing on a beer that Will Gordon either can't get up in Massachusetts, or can't, like, get up in Massachusetts.… » 3/24/15 11:35am Tuesday 11:35am

Future Is The Hardest-Working Guy In Rap

Atlanta rapper Future hasn't slept much this year. He's put out three mixtapes since October, is currently working on another, and at this rate is Lil B-level prolific, but with more songs that actually make it in the pocket. You don't even have to like Future to appreciate the insanity of that level of output. » 3/23/15 5:34pm 3/23/15 5:34pm

Cute Dog Is So Incredibly Bad At Catching Food

Commercial Shandies Are For Suckers. Drink This Beer Instead.

Beer is very useful. In just the past few days I have relied on beer to help me relate to my fellow man, to make college basketball interesting, and to wean me off my Tylenol PM addiction. Beer can also be used to liven up an otherwise limp pot of whatever-bean chili, to repair a dicey relationship with your mail… » 3/23/15 11:40am 3/23/15 11:40am
