Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: The “Kingsman” sequel will be the weekend’s hit, but I want to see Emma Stone as Billie Jean King in “Battle of the Sexes.” TV/Streaming: I’m still recovering from Ken Burns’s “Vietnam,” so I think I’ll opt for lighter fare this weekend: the “Ballers” finale on Sunday and a “Golden Girls” marathon on Sunday on Hallmark. Music: Foo Fighters give us some “Concrete and Gold.” What? You don’t know Kay Starr’s early jazz recordings? Sample her “Bonaparte’s Retreat” here. Books: Geez: Simon & Schuster didn’t even have the courtesy to credit the writer of Tom Brady’s new book, “The TB12 Method.” George Steiner’s “Tolstoy or Dostoevsky” can be slow-going, but I’m learning things! Sports: It’s crazy, but I’m now watching the most obscure Italian soccer teams on the weekend: current favorite is Bologna. Finally: I thought autumn was supposed to begin this weekend — not in New York!

Urban Nation in Berlin is the world’s first major institution built to champion and archive street art and graffiti, which fully emerged in New York in the 1970s with artists who would tag the subway tunnels. Since then it has grown into Read more »
