Director Adam McKay Does Not Shortchange with The Big Short

The Big Short is about the circumstances that led to the subprime mortgage crisis that expedited the 2008 economic collapse—and surprisingly it's one of the most riveting, edge-of-your-seat thrill rides of 2015. According to director Adam McKay, striking the necessary…

Almost Famous: Five Musicians Who Left Before Their Bands Blew Up

This week, the world found out that, had he played his cards differently, Ryan Gosling could've been a Backstreet Boy. By all accounts, he thought joining the band would've been a waste of time, since New Kids On The Block…

When You Should -- and Shouldn't -- Leave Your Phone on the Table

In brief, what to do about phones out at restaurants/bars? I don't mean using the phones, but phones on the table. Bad manners or no? Yes, it's bad manners. Even if you're not, like, using your phone to catapult birds…

Sexual Meming Radicalizes Desire on the Internet

As Linsanity swept the sports world last month, my focus -- as a bit of a nerd -- was less on New York Knicks' point guard Jeremy Lin and more on his cultural impact, particularly on the Internet. I followed…

Exploding Pig Farms, Trader Joe's Veg Eats, and Vegan Ryan Gosling!

• It's Vegan Ryan Gosling! Pull your pants back up -- he's not actually vegan. It's just one in the sea of Gosling memes. Ryan Gosling is totally the house that Tumblr built. Anyway, this particular meme is pretty funny…

Izakaya Yuzuki: Painstakingly Crafted Japanese Food

It's striking how often we now rely on restaurants to provide us with a sense of the homemade. Not just "house-made" salumi or pasta, but base ingredients whose production has been industrialized so long we've lost the collective knowledge of…

Gorgeous and Gruesome Coexist

As stripped down and propulsive as its robotic title, Drive is the most "American" movie yet by Danish genre director Nicolas Winding Refn. The film is a sleek, tense piece of work that, as a vehicle for Ryan Gosling, has…

Ryan Gosling Loves Animals, Baby Goats Are the New Baby Jesus, and Banana Nog!

I have a question. Does being a "friend" online really require any social obligations or even just courtesies? I was recently feeling overwhelmed with spending too much time online, to the point that it interfered with my productivity in "real"…

An Open Letter To Ryan Gosling (Because We Love His Band)

Dear Ryan Gosling,Gosh, you're handsome. When you made that Notebook movie, we kind of dismissed you as a teen heartthrob (even though your beard was hard to resist), and left it at that. And now here you are, bombarding us…

"All Good Things": Little truth in true-crime story

Generously bankrolled (then shelved) by an imperiled Weinstein Company and peopled with Oscar nominees, it's tempting to call All Good Things an upscale version of straight-to-cable True Crime crap — only that makes it sound more entertaining than it actually…

A Schoolteacher Darkly

Even curriculum-clutchers might rather leave a child behind than let her learn from Half Nelson's Mr. Dunne (Ryan Gosling), a Brooklyn junior-high teacher whose off-the-cuff history lessons are based — brace yourself, Bushies — on dialectical theory. History is change,…
