Ready to Die: Three Days of Drugs and Disintegration with The Grateful Dead
Not like I would've cared. The obituary of the chubby skeleton from the “Touch of Grey” video meant nothing. How was he going to compete with the stab-you-in-your-nose-bone ominousness of Mobb Deep or the cocaine ice cream of Chef Raekwon? That was the ...

The Apple Watch is the best smartwatch yet, but it's more of a luxury item ...
Do you really need a smartwatch? Up until seven months ago, that's a question I was fully expecting Apple to answer. After all, the company is best at coming into a fairly nascent category and showing users exactly why they need to have something. Just ...

Eating and Drinking in Mexico City: A Diary
A week before I left, my editor had overruled my first choice of hotel as not expensive enough, and upgraded me to a new boutique property in a trendy neighborhood with 24-hour concierge, car service and, as it turned out, a Benito on call. “We want ...

com , there have been 272 NBA teams with a 3-2 series lead. Of those teams, 232 have gone on to win the series (85. 3 percent). With the Wizards headed back to the District for Friday's win-or-stay-home Game 6, they can't count on their man being the man. Without question, Wall will give them everything he possibly can.

Armstrong paused for a split second to take in the moment, looking out across the rows of tables that included Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, Joan Jett, Stevie Wonder, Peter Wolf, Steve Van Zandt, Bill Withers, Jerry Lee Lewis and many other of his... "I love rock & roll music," he said. "I have from the first moment I opened my eyes and took my first breath. That was a common sentiment throughout the five-and-a-half hour ceremony at Cleveland's Public Hall Saturday night (which airs May 30th on HBO), perhaps the only event that could find Miley Cyrus singing into the same mic as Green Day's Mike Dirnt... "A lot of different types of music are in [the Hall of Fame]," Withers said. About 10,000 rock & roll constituents crammed into the hall and took their seats right as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame chairman and Rolling Stone founder Jann Wenner delivered the opening address. "It took a lot of years and a lot of struggle to open the Hall of Fame, but we did it and this year we welcomed our 10 millionth visitor. Last year's ceremony wrapped up with Joan Jett fronting Nirvana, and this year, Grohl returned the favor by joining the punk pioneer at her own set. She kicked off the night with a smoldering "Bad Reputation" before Grohl came onstage for "Cherry Bomb," the signature song by Jett's 1970s punk band the Runaways.
Thanks to a selfless coach, the sons of Mexican migrants in a dirt-poor California town turned their backs on drugs and gangs and built an athletic dynasty. Then Ayon threw his arms around the coach's wife and cried, "Why did God do this. " and the boys in red and white each staggered off alone to cry. They had failed the most successful coach in California schoolboy history. They'd failed the elders who'd walked at their heels to the starting line, reminding them that they had to win the state championship for Mr. White. They'd fallen apart on the old man's last day as a coach, they'd spit on his dynasty and ministry both. White's wife went to dry their tears. But then she and the elders began crying too, and it was hopeless. No high school sports program in California had ever done what theirs had--won nine state titles--but it had been this team's duty to send Mr. White into the sunset with the untouchable number, the fitting number, the perfect number: 10. One by... Laundry sagged from plastic lines like skin from the brown dogs' ribs. Workers, home from a long day of picking grapes, sat inside their stucco box houses as if stoned by the sun. Not a peep came through the doors of El Cha Cha Cha. Something just stirred on the southwest edge of town.

Howard Kurtz finds there are news nuggets in the tough, often tacky blog world
I didn't get into journalism to write about Brett Favre's private parts, and I suspect most of my colleagues would like that story ruled out of bounds. But our ability to spike such tawdry tales ended many seasons ago. The story of whether Favre sent racy ...
