Kyle McCoy is back, and it’s possible he has yet to bathe since he’s been gone. You may remember Kyle, his earnest white button down, and green track jacket from last summer’s Kickstarter campaign Project Springfield, a massive homage to The Simpsons made out of those tiny plastic things you melt into magnets your/my mother prefers to display inside a drawer rather than on the fridge. Well, now Kyle’s written the book and lyrics for Grindhouse Musical, two back-to-back shows to be performed off-off (…off) Broadway at The Secret Theater in Long Island City, June 29th - July 2nd. The first performance, the world premiere of The Local, takes place entirely on NYC’s downtown 6 train, and the second will be the much anticipated (…I for one am looking forward) revival of Kyle and Midnight Buffet’s JAWS: The Musical! Maybe if Kyle exceeds his goal, he can score some new duds for opening night. — Elisabeth H.

Nobody likes a broken heart, but how about pouring over other people’s? The Museum of Broken Relationships offers you this experience, a chance to ogle over the paraphernalia of anonymous heartbreaks. The University of Houston’s Blaffer Art Museum will be hosting a special exhibit to showcase pieces from the permanent exhibit, as well as sentimental objects from local Houstonites. Personally I’m most intrigued by the axe in this video — obviously a good story there. — Daniella J.

Imagine trying to fall asleep at night as a child, but every night you’re visited by two shadowy, faceless figures. That’s the childhood memory that inspired Jovanka Vuckovic’s short film The Captured Bird. She’s going all out with her first foray into filmmaking, bringing on executive producer Guillermo Del Toro and working to make the film’s dark fantasy world as terrifying as possible by using real creature effects instead of CG. If you like being scared, The Captured Bird should keep you hiding under the covers for a long time to come. — Cindy A.

Netflix Watch Instantly is the most rewarding, non-Google entertainment wormhole in my life. It is bountiful and often as rewarding as unnerving, which was the case when I randomly came across ThanksKilling last November. The classic B-movie slasher film depicts a vengeful turkey whose tag line is “Gobble Gobble Mother Fuckers.” He stalks a group of college kids on their way home for break. In the end he dies.or, does he? Which brings us to the present, as creators Jordan Downey and Kevin Stewart are attempting to film the sequel, this time with a real budget. The best part: for $5 the crew will create a video of every backer getting bashed by the killer turkey. — Mike M.

Soundwalk Collective is an international sound collective. For the last ten years, they have been hunting down sounds from all over the world, on a mission to create “sound journeys.” Yeah, no duh I’m into that. For “The Black Sea Project,” they’ve collected over 500 hours of audio material retracing the path of Jason and the Argonauts on his legendary search for the Golden Fleece. Mysterious conversations held on cargo ships, custom officers off the bay of Naples, sounds of morse code, music … the fragments come together to create a lush, sonic portrait of both contemporary coastal life and a vibrant, ever-pervasive history. Not only is this relevant to my own background (once a Greek, always a Greek), but it’s flat out spectacular. The bits of audio soundtracking the project video are more than enough to make me say “More please.” — Cassie M.

I love any excuse to be able to passionately sing Journey without all of the correlating shame and tired chord progressions. I would back this album if my next door neighbor who sings spanish hymns every morning was putting it out. But Clem Snide! Man who makes me swoon and reblog audio posts on Tumblr with gusto? And then cry about it? Yes please! This is all you need to know: Faithfully, Open Arms, Lights, Don’t Stop Believin’, Any Way You Want It, And one more song to be determined. — Meaghan O.
