Monday October 6 to Sunday October 12

Back To The Shack- The video for one of the first singles off Weezer’s new album, Everything Will Be Alright in the End, out Tuesday, has a setting that’s out of this world but a sound that’s, well, not. Have a listen for yourself. (youtube.com)

Inherent Vice- Trailers for Paul Thomas Anderson movies are masterworks of the form, and the one for his adaption of the Thomas Pynchon novel Inherent Vice is no different. The zany fun of this movie is going to be a blast. (youtube.com)

Consumed- David Cronenberg, one of the most lauded directors of his generation, has just released his debut novel. Early reviews say it’s very Cronenbergian. What did you expect? (penguinrandomhouse.ca)

The Last Amazon- Jill Lepore’s recent New Yorker essay on Wonder Woman and feminism is brilliant long-form journalism at its best. Also, so many fascinating Wonder Woman facts, fellow comic book nerds! (newyorker.com)

Momhead- No one can insult you like a toddler. Johanna Stein’s video of all the harsh things her four-year-old has said to her, including “Your breath smells like a fart,” has been viewed more than 750,000 times since it was posted last week. (youtube.com)
