All our culture posts, focused mainly on video-games, media, politics and sports. Or anything else that we want to expound on.

Look at this perfect old-school music video.

Every so often, the Internet reveals a shining little unironic Good Thing – some fine online jewel created to be enjoyed on its own terms, with no hidden meaning or backhanded in-joke. They deserve the admiration of even the snarkiest blogger.

Jack Ryan is an empty power fantasy with a lot of fine filigree in the details, just like a Tom Clancy book.

A good movie by any measure, but holy cow, they really did just throw all of Luke Skywalker's amazing potential straight into the nearest Sarlacc/Rancor/detention-level garbage chute.

Good cooking, good TV, and ironic culture references - it's a positive millennial jamboree over here.

Alex and Jon will watch the Fusion take on London this afternoon, along with a special guest. This will be more of an explainer/newbie commentary than a pure play-by-play, so check it out if you've been curious about Overwatch League, but maybe a little overwhelmed by the complexities.
