Last week, I linked a New Yorker story that looked behind-the-scenes of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden. It turns out that it might have been too good to be true. (Registan)

I was a sucker for a choose your own adventure books growing up. Naturally, I’m obligated to link this choose your own Grand Theft Auto adventure. (Escapist Magazine)

Have you ever heard of the McGangBang sandwich? It’s an unofficial McDonald’s sandwich that sure sounds mighty tasty… And artery clogging. (Gunaxin)

With the success of Mad Men and Breaking Bad, AMC is the latest cable TV darling. However, it’s already clearly experiencing growing pains with the big changes with The Walking Dead and the critical disaster (at least among the fools that didn’t watch Twin Peaks) that was The Killing. (Hollywood Reporter)

None of these artists have won our Worst of Music award but these five musicians are well advised to get back on drugs if they want to avoid it with their new stuff. (The Smoking Jacket)
