    The Giant Insane People of the NFL Are Back, Finally

    Professional football is played at speeds too fast for the viewer to follow what is happening. The games are too long and the stop-and-start action is constantly interrupted by homophobic, misogynistic beer ads. The rules are bizarre. And the game destroys the lives of too many p…

  • What Do the Chairs Think About Clint Eastwood's Speech?

    There’s been a lot of discussion and analysis of Eastwood's rambling, ad-libbed speech—and rightly so—but I think everyone is unfairly ignoring a group of voters who were clearly heavily invested in the speech, and I don’t think that’s right. So I walked around the office and cha…

  • The Silliest, Most Terrifying Things in the Republican Platform

    Yesterday, the Republican Party released its official platform, which is a list of stuff they like and don’t like—it’s sort of like a child’s Christmas wish list, only instead of getting presents the child wants to build insanely expensive war machines and stop abortion and gay m…

  • The Wacky World of the Republican Party Platform

    The GOP let ordinary people submit policy ideas to be considered for the platform this time around. A lot of them are terrifying, some of them are smart, some are funny, and none of them will matter in the end.

  • ASMR, the Good Feeling No One Can Explain

    ASMR is a tricky feeling to describe, and I can only talk about it secondhand. From what I understand from conversations with ASMRers, it’s a tingle in your brain, a kind of pleasurable headache that can creep down your spine, and it's triggered by things like folding napkins or…

  • The Olympics Are World Class at Being Boring

    The London Olympics are a festival of athletics for athletics’ sake, a carefully choreographed celebration of branding, and an international pissing contest among global powers. You can be upset by any or all of this, or proud, but by the end you’ll almost certainly be tired by t…

  • Arigato, Ichiro

    Ichiro Suzuki was special in Seattle in a way that few players are. By the numbers, it’s possible to argue he was overrated and not that good, but no number is ever going to convince me he wasn’t great.

  • You Should Buy J&L Illustrated #3

    “Hey, we should start a lit mag?” is one of the most common things people say in the just-messing-around phase of life. Usually the answer is "No." Not in this case.
