Omar Comin’ …

In its first brand campaign in a decade, The Atlantic decided to make an impact through an ad, featuring an excellent actor, Michael K. Williams, who played The Wire's Omar Little, one of the most complex, badass characters ever. And, you best believe Omar makes an appearance. "Spread the word, darlin'. Omar back."

Best Jams of 2016

Because I can't get enough of the constant barrage of year end Top 10 lists, I feel the need to add to the endless parade by creating my own each year, based on the jams that made my face melt, made me forget about Trump, or had some other profound effect, during the course of the year.

The Wire aired on HBO from 2002 to 2008, running 5 brilliant seasons, but few noticed at the time. The series largely flew under the radar until it was off the air and word of mouth made it a cult hit.
