Why Canada Is So Upset Over the CBC Sex Scandal -- Vulture — Over the weekend, a major sex scandal broke in the high-stakes world of Canadian public radio - and I fully acknowledge that the combination of the words Canadian, public radio, sex, and scandal might seem, at the least, incongruous.

The art of the ironic movie cameo. — Whatever claims it might have on cinematic immortality, Dodgeball must be the only film in history to end with someone cursing the name of Chuck Norris. The line, delivered by Ben Stiller, is a reference to an earlier cameo in which Norris appears as himself and, serving as a member...

Gone Girl Is the Ultimate Truther Movie — In the week after Gone Girl opened at the top of the box office with a robust $37 million, Naomi Wolf, the author of The Beauty Myth and onetime political advisor most famous for questioning Al Gore's alpha-maleness, posted a series of, to say the least, questionable conspiratorial rantings on Facebook.

Never Can Say Goodbye: Writers on Their Unshakable Love for New York — Never Can Say Goodbye has 6 ratings and 1 review. From the editor of the celebrated anthology Goodbye to All That: Writers on Loving and Leaving New York...

How Did Kramer vs. Kramer Make So Much Money? -- Vulture — Pop quiz: What was the highest-grossing film of 1979? Remember, this is several years after Jaws (the highest-grossing film of 1975), Rocky (highest-grossing of '76) and Star Wars (highest-grossing '77) had, according to the common wisdom, doomed us all forever to a cinematic junk-food diet of robot sharks, alien spaceships, and unending sequels.

Free Yourselves From the Shackles of Spoilers! -- Vulture — Spoil everything. Give away all the endings and, while you're at it, reveal all the beginnings and middles, too. As an audience, we've become far too obsessed with spoilers: flagging them, evading them, burying them far from human eyes like nuclear waste in Yucca Mountain. We argue spoiler etiquette.

What Comes After a Comeback? The Stillback -- Vulture — If you are a fan of the McConaissance - and, really, how could you not be? - you may have spent this year feeling a little deprived.

The Age of the Streaming TV Auteur — the streaming-tv gold rush There's a memorable story in Peter Biskind's Down and Dirty Pictures, a great history of the 1990s indie-film boom, in which an upstart production company, eager to establish its bona fides, promises an absurd amount of money and unheard-of creative control to an in-demand filmmaker with a suddenly hot property to sell.

New York Magazine — Michael Cera is too good to be true. He gets this reaction a lot. He gets it onscreen, as when producer Judd Apatow watched his audition tape for the new comedy Superbad and thought, This guy is off-the-charts funny.

Why Seth Rogen Is More Serious Than Woody Allen -- Vulture — Adulthood is dead, which is great news to get right before the weekend because it means you can cancel your errands and tedious chores and go on a bender, or perhaps just stay home and reread Harry Potter.

@iboudway @DKThomp In hindsight seems like it may have been worth it. But in moment getting thrown out would seem like worst decision ever.

@jimpagels @DKThomp less a question of effort than of reasonable expectation; you can't react to a fielding error before error is made.

@DKThomp Try to score on everything all the time because what if maybe outfielder has a heart attack?

@DKThomp @DouthatNYT Unlike usual trademark rational thinking, that argument boils down to SERIOUSLY HOW COOL WOULD IT HAVE BEEN!!?!
