WATCH IT: videos I peeped this week that you should too
Lost fans were left with a bazillion unanswered questions when the series ended earlier this year. On the Season 6 DVD is a 12-minute epilogue that will answer a few of them, including what the deal was with the polar bears, island infertility, and where's Walt. You can see a preview here.

Eminem, Rihanna, Dominic Monaghan & Megan Fox in the Love the Way You Lie music video.

HEAR IT: songs I downloaded this week
King of Anything by Sara Bareilles * Catch her in concert at Webster Hall, Wednesday November 10. I snagged myself a ticket the moment they went on sale today! (I'm dying for her to sing Gravity... story of my life ATM.)

Do You Love Me by Guster * They're also hitting the road, doing a show in NYC at Beacon Theater on October 29. I've been very lucky and was invited to this show by a friend who has two tickets. I saw them live at UMass several years ago and they were fantastic.

DO IT: things to add to your calendar
Raiders of the Lost Ark is screening tonight for FREE on the flight deck of the Intrepid. Doors open at 7:30p. Get there early!

Swim on Park Avenue tomorrow! Pools have been designed from (new) dumpsters and will be available for swimming on a timed, first-come/first-serve basis from 7am-1pm. Fun! Park Ave will be closed to traffic from the Brooklyn Bridge up to Central Park 3 Saturdays in a row, starting tomorrow, with free bike and skate rentals.

Friday, Saturday and Sunday there will be a FREE performance of Romeo and Juliet in Riverside Park at 6:30pm by the Hudson Warehouse. The outdoor theater performance will be at W89th and Riverside Drive. It's not officially "Shakespeare in the Park"... but technically it is, right?
