Zombies vs. Clowns: Which Is Scarier? A Debate.

newrepublic.com — Ryan Kearney: Earlier this month, I came across a Gawker post titled, " Is This the Scariest American Horror Story Scene Ever?" I had never watched a single second of the series, but the thumbnail image was of a soiled and bloody clown, his lips stretched wide to reveal a grotesque mouth of rotting, oversized teeth.

Overanalyzing a Nationals pitcher's contract in 'How Do You Know'

tbd.com — Owen Wilson plays the most overpaid pitcher of all time. How Do You Know is, by most accounts, a film you shouldn't watch even if you've just spent five years in a Mongolian village, without electricity or sex.

Video of Overcrowded Subway in Brazil Should Scare Soccer Fans

newrepublic.com — Brazilian daily Folha de S.Paulo on Wednesday posted this frightening video of an overcrowded Metro station in São Paulo, where bus drivers went on strike Tuesday to protest the terms of their union's deal with management.

Anthony Bourdain Profile: Parts Unknown Host Is the Celebrity He Hated

newrepublic.com — "Things are different now," Anthony Bourdain wrote in the preface to the paperback edition of his debut memoir, 2000's Kitchen Confidential: Adventures in the Culinary Underbelly , which became a hit largely thanks to its frank, populist advice to diners: Don't order fish on Mondays, don't order mussels ever, don't order meat well done, and avoid brunch altogether (especially Hollandaise, "a veritable petri dish of biohazards").

Wall Street Journal's Sochi Coverage Is Overwhelmingly Condescending

newrepublic.com — Last week, a day before the Winter Olympics began, The New Republic's Julia Ioffe took Western journalists to task for gleefully tweeting about the state of Sochi's hotel-the broken elevators, the urine-colored tap water, the knob-less doors-writing that "a lot of this complaining does smack of some pretty fantastic schadenfreude."

Valentine's Day Is Not the Problem. Love Itself Is.

newrepublic.com — It's called Valentine's Day, but much like Christmas or the Super Bowl, it is hardly a single-day event in America anymore.

Puppy Bowl X Is Even Worse Than the Super Bowl

newrepublic.com — Before your eyes widen with rage and your temple veins burst, before you leave a profane comment at the bottom of this article, before you tweet about how I should be euthanized, and before you photoshop my face onto Hitler's body and upload it to the Facebook page "Ryan Kearney Is Worse Than Michael Vick," know this: I think puppies are cute.

War on Christmas: Megyn Kelly, Conservatives Should Hate Santa Claus

newrepublic.com — The war over the War on Christmas has flared up again. Slate's Aisha Harris fired the latest salvo with her piece last week, " Santa Claus Should Not Be a White Man Anymore," prompting a famously confused response from Fox News host Megyn Kelly that "Santa Claus just is white" and "Jesus was a white man, too.

Malcolm Gladwell, Gakwer's Tom Scocca Wage War Over Smarm

newrepublic.com — Gawker's Tom Scocca, in an essay last week arguing that "smarm"-not snark-is the "defining feature of our times," took on two smarmyweights: David Eggers and Malcolm Gladwell. The former "is full of shit," Scocca wrote, while the latter "is a known expert, in theory and practice, on the marketing power of popularity."
