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 ...

Jon Moss brings the contest to a close with three long blasts on his whistle and Manchester shoot three points clear of the chasing pack at the top of the Premier League table. A Kyle Walker own goal after 22 minutes settled the game, but Spurs had several decent chances to take one or all three points. They win a free-kick wide on the left and Eriksen sends the ball towards the edge of the six-yard box, where the ball ricochets off Herrera’s shoulder and bounces goalwards, only for Sergio Romero to get down and punch the ball clear. 64 min: Bastian Schweinsteiger plays the ball wide to Rooney and continues his run into the Tottenham penalty area, where he leaps in an attempt to convert the return cross. He’s beaten in the air and the ball breaks for Ashley Young, who shoots low and hard through a thicket of legs, only for his shot to be saved by Michel Vorm, who needed to attempts to smother a shot he can’t have seen coming until very, very late. 55 min: Ashley Young and Kyle Walker continue their lively battle, with the Manchester United winger conceding a free-kick after a touchline tussle. Having been under the cosh for the opening 20 minutes, Manchester United’s players go in for their half-time cuppa a goal to the good courtesy of an own goal from Kyle Walker, who rolled the ball into his own net while trying to put it out for a...
In my last post, I came out against the Iran Nuclear agreement partly because there is nothing Iran or the US agrees on. A contract that is entirely dependent on its minutia is useless. Iran like North Korea or Yasser Arafat seems prepared to say whatever we may want to hear in exchange for money but I don’t see an Iran that wants to engage the world on anything but Tehran’s terms and their terms require the export of terrorism. Thinking about future text books and history books is job one but they also have a case to make on Iran. We would have to rely on other intelligence to know how far along Iran is toward having nuclear missiles and while inspectors could fail us they are less likely to do so than other kinds of intelligence. However, this is a glorified security camera but with more blind spots and sometimes actors like Iran and North Korea either don’t care about being seen or will “turn off the cameras” by kicking the inspectors out. Kerry argued we would know if Iran violates the agreement, this is less true. We will know if they obviously violate the agreement but it’s a large country and some things that are illegal like designing nuclear war heads will probably never be known to us should Iran.
As an avid video-game player from his college years, Simon Parkin, author of a new book about gaming culture, was intrigued to discover that they were being blamed for a string of deaths in Asian internet cafes, and that one government had even... At 10pm on Tuesday, 31 January 2012, the 23-year-old took a seat in a corner of an internet cafe on the outskirts of New Taipei City, Taiwan. He lit a cigarette and logged on to an online video game. Each time that he woke he picked up his game where he had left off. And he died in Summoner’s Rift, a forest blanketed by perpetual gloom. Summoner’s Rift has the appearance of a remote, unvisited place, but each day it is frequented by hundreds of thousands of people, players of the online video game League of Legends , arguably the most popular online video game in the world. Chen had died here many times before. He had been speared, incinerated, or otherwise obliterated by rivals as he scrambled through its thickets and across its river in an endlessly repeating game of territorial warfare. Many games are metaphors for warfare.
