Happy Monday! This is a bit of a frenzied week as I try to get the jump on a coming vacation, so I am reading “The Essential Ellen Willis” while running to screenings of “The Amazing Spider-Man.” What are you most excited for as we enter the culture-packed summer months?
• Kick off the week with a new track from the Roots.
• Revenue for PC games has surpassed that for games played through consoles.
• Why dukes rule romance novels.
• Start your controversy engines: Zack Snyder is going to direct a “Justice League” movie.
• Which streaming video service should you subscribe to?
• I am trying to set a mental limit on how much money I will permit myself to spend on Jay-Z and Beyoncé tickets.
• Robert Costa assesses Sarah Palin’s political present and future, though it would have been interesting to see him take her reality television career into account.
