Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Magic Mike XXL”? No, thanks: one stripper movie per decade is enough for me. And “Terminator”? I was happier when Arnold wasn’t acting. Television: “Spike Lee’s Lil Joints” runs tonight on ESPN. On Sunday, “Penny Dreadful” has its season finale on Showtime. Music: Have you placed your advance order yet for Billy Joel’s new album? July 4th means fireworks and Tchaikovsky’s “1812 Overture.” Books: Any time I see the title of Ted Cruz’s book I can’t stop laughing: “A Time for Truth.” What’s Chris Christie’s? “A Time for Dieting”? Sports: Watching Team USA on Sunday in the World Cup final is the perfect way to cap the July 4th weekend. Finally: I’m starting to wonder whether South Dakota, where I’m spending the week, has switched places with Seattle: bring back the sun!
