Over the weekend I found myself at a Japanese grocery store food court, standing in line at a noodle stall that makes fresh udon before your eyes. Even though it’s the dead of winter here in Chicago, I opted for a bowl of cold udon noodles, nestled in a cool soy base with a runny poached egg atop. Right as I paid, I saw a tub of tempura crunchies sitting by the cashier. I scooped a spoon,...View more »
The handlebars made my hands numb, the seat hurt my ass, and the rear wheel had at least 6 broken spokes. But it was mine.
It was, apparently, a 2011 Opus Urbano with a rigid fork. I can't believe I had that bike for 7 years already!2011 OPUS CATALOG

Like many states, New York inspects cars to make sure they’re (roughly) safe enough to be on the road, and to prove that’s the case, they require an inspection sticker to be displayed on the windshield. Now, not everyone has the time, money, or a car that meets all the inspection standards, which can lead some people to make fake stickers. If you’re going to try this, though, I suggest youView more »
Devil May Cry is back. The combat is a blast, the dialogue is irreverent and snappy, and the game looks terrific. Best of all, Dante is in top form.
The setting of Devil May Cry 5 is based on London, with the city turned into a demonic hellscape. Dante and Nero arrive on the scene, ready to hunt demons in style. This time around, you get to play three different characters: Nero, Dante and a...View more »
There’s a new BMW 8 Series out, but it will never eclipse what the original 8 offered : A sky-high asking price, natural aspiration, V12 availability and styling that radically departed from what BMW was offering at the time. What makes the original car memorable today is how much of an outlier it was in the early ‘90s. To own one now, you kind of have to be a masochist.If You're Brave... View more »
Simon Kinberg teases New Mutants’ creepy tone. Charlie’s Angels casts a To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star. The next chapter of The Twilight Zone has officially begun. Plus, more set pictures from Joker, even more pictures from the return of Doctor Who, and a...View more »
Yesterday, The Wall Street Journal ran a story under this headline:
So clicky, amirite? The story covers the shrinking demand for canned tuna fish and what the “big three” tuna companies—StarKist, Bumble Bee, and Chicken Of The Sea—are doing to fight the decline. And it takes a certain declaration from one Andy Mecs,...View more »

En la siguiente pieza visual, una obra de 1949 producida por el National Film Board of Canada, se ofrece una clase magistral para la construcción de un iglú en 90 minutos de la misma forma que los nativos del Ártico erigen sus hogares usando únicamente un cuchillo y la nieve que los rodea.

Last week , public location filming in the heart of New York gave us our first look at a brand new spider-suit in action for Spider-Man: Far From Home. While pictures from filming did give us a great look , Sony and Marvel stayed quiet on the costume front officially...until last night. Sort of.
Yes, our first “proper” look at Peter Parker’s new red and black (or maybe just very, very dark...View more »
On July 17th, Girl Meets World aired an episode called “Girl Meets the New Teacher.” The themes were literature, comics, and good versus evil. None of that would have been remarkable if they hadn’t used The Dark Knight Returns as the centerpiece. On a Disney Channel show.
In burst of double-timeliness, “Girl Meets the New Teacher” uses both The Dark Knight Returns and To Kill a Mockingbird,...View more »
Here’s my shiny beetle. A Tomica F20 beetle casting finished in chrome! I got this before the Internet was a thing so never knew what the companies mentioned on the box actually do. Turns out its a couple of Japanese hobby shops that are still trading today! Not bad. There is very little info on the companies, (in English) so I was pleased to find out anything, the fact that it’s hobby...View more »
My father cast his first vote in a presidential election in 1968, in New York, for comedian and civil rights activist Dick Gregory. During Nixon’s impeachment in 1974, he was in the hospital for leukemia treatments; he ordered a television specifically to his room to watch the news, and told me that he remembered getting a spinal tap and thinking that the headache he’d later have would...View more »
You will have to understand, if you’re to keep reading and we’re to keep writing, that Deadspin is a pro-Gritty shop. There are allegedly some people out there who don’t like the new Flyers mascot. Frankly, those aren’t the sorts of people we want around here.
Gritty, who is furry and orange and googly-eyed, made his...View more »
The U.S. Center for SafeSport has banned three-time Olympic taekwondo medalist Steven Lopez, declaring him permanently ineligible earlier this week for “sexual misconduct involving a minor.” According to a copy of the notice of the director’s decision and other SafeSport records, which Deadspin reviewed, the investigation found that Lopez “violated the applicable policies, as outlined in the...View more »
Last week, Samsung teased its Infinity Flex Display for use on a still-unnamed folding smartphone. Samsung’s project isn’t the only bendy-screen device in the works, but reports from two Korean news agencies already have people balking about the gadget’s anticipated price.
That’s because Samsung’s flexible screen device—which has been dubbed the Galaxy F for now—may cost around 2 million won...View more »
