The inroads that statistical analysis has made into baseball coverage over the past decade or so are pretty remarkable. Advanced metrics have become a much larger part of understanding the game.

Celebrity Slam (07/26/2017)

Shark weak

Most of the time, when we take a celebrity to task, it’s because of something they have said or done that is particularly oblivious and/or stupid. Something related to an inability to interact with the world around them like a normal person. And obviously, we really love doing that. Call it schadenfreude if you will – you wouldn’t be wrong – but we still delight in it.

The world according to Gork

Gabe Hudson’s “Gork, the Teenage Dragon”

For the past few years, we’ve been hearing about the demise of the romantic comedy. “The Death of the Rom-Com” has been the central thesis of loads of lengthy thinkpieces – some more navel-gaze-y than others, but all devoted to explaining the reasons behind the genre’s impending extinction.

And then a movie comes along to remind us all that there’s plenty of gas left in the romantic tank. All it takes is someone with a compelling (and funny) story to tell or a compelling (and funny) way to tell it or – ideally – both.

A movie like “The Big Sick.”

Celebrity Slam (07/19/2017)

RIP George Romero

We’re taking a break from the standard snarkiness of the Celebrity Slam space this week. We’ll be back to talking about the lunatic antics of the rich and famous soon enough, but today, this space is about bidding a fond farewell to a talented, influential figure who redefined the entertainment realm in some fascinating ways, a filmmaker whose impact reaches even farther and deeper than you might expect.
