A James Bond theme song has to have the title of the movie in it, even if it's totally cheesy. Otherwise, the songwriters are cheating.
In “Writing’s on the Wall,” the theme song for the upcoming James Bond movie “Spectre,” Sam Smith and collaborators skipped the most important and difficult requirement of the project: a reference to the movie’s title. Credit Photograph by Gareth Cattermole/Getty

Going "all in" used to mean something about taking risks, often desperate risks. Now it just means being excited.

Chris Farley was big in everything he did. It is a shame that we never got the chance to see him try to be small.
In the later years of his career, Chris Farley’s physical comedy became more and more a form of self-flagellation. Credit Photograph by NBC via Getty

LeBron James doesn't simply give a cameo in "Trainwreck." He is the funniest person in the movie.
The initial joy upon watching LeBron James onscreen in “Trainwreck” likely owes to the relief of discovering that he is not as terrible as he had every right to be. Credit Image by Mary Cybulski / Universal Pictures / Everett

Ryan Adams could make a take-out menu sound rueful. Even so, his reinterpretation of Taylor Swift's "1989" feels personal, sincere, and generous.
Ryan Adams’s cover of the Taylor Swift album “1989” is no joke—in some ways, it's more sincere than the original.

Serena and Venus don't pretend to be having any fun when they play each other.
The dream of the Venus-Serena match is that, in watching them play each other, we might catch some unmediated glimpse of them as tennis players and women, of their private selves and the unspoken aspects of their sisterhood. Credit PHOTOGRAPH BY JULIO CORTEZ/AP

Why are the Muppets on Twitter?

I wrote about BoJack Horseman, and why all the best TV comedies are about anger, loneliness, and despair. Get ready to laugh!

Serena Williams won Wimbledon as much because of her mental strength as her physical.
Her last game against Garbiñe Muguruza was over so suddenly that Williams seemed surprised, unsure of what to do next—as if this were not her twenty-first major championship but her first. Credit PHOTOGRAPH COURTESY AFP PHOTO / LEON NEAL
