Unwinnable isn’t just a website or a weekly magazine – it’s a belief in a different kind of internet.


Hail Satan!

Stu Horvath gets some of that old time diabolical religion at a Ghost B.C. concert.

Something is Coming

We are almost ready to tell you a secret. Since the beginning of the year, we’ve been working on something. We’ve hunched over our computers and lost countless hours of sleep making sure we’ve gotten everything right. Change can be a scary thing, especially when you’re thinking about changing something we love as much as we do Unwinnable. But we think we’ve figured it out, and we can’t wait to show you. Today. At 3:00 p.m. Pacific Time. Come back then, darlings. Maybe I’ve already said too much…  


Harold Ramis, 1944-2014

I just watched Ghostbusters again, for the umpteenth time. It’s just as funny as it ever was, but now there is a hint of sadness mixed in as well. Harold Ramis had an astounding career beside Ghostbusters, but that is the movie I will always go back to. I always identified with Egon. It is strange to see him on the screen, to hear his deadpan voice and to also know he’s passed on. It doesn’t seem right.


Have You Seen the Yellow Sign?

In 1938, Raymond Chandler published a short detective story called “The King in Yellow.” It takes its name from the victim, a musician named King Leopardi. When the hotel dick, Steve Grayce, finds the man shot to death in his bed, clothed in yellow silk pajamas, he remarks, “The King in Yellow. I read a book with that title once.”

The Problem with ‘Sherlock’

In 1998, someone gave Roland Emmerich $130,000,000 to make a Godzilla movie. This was not because Emmerich was a fan of the storied Japanese Kaiju film franchise, but rather was down to the fact that he had earned a reputation for producing popcorn spectacles in less time and with smaller budgets than other directors.
