(Welcome to Something for the Weekend.  What follows is a list of some of our shows, some shows that aren’t our shows, and some links from around the Internet that we think you’ll enjoy.  Give them a listen/glance.  Thank you.)

STAR WARS, EPISODE III: Karina Longworth’s You Must Remember This covers Hedy Lamarr, whose life story is just, man.

MORE KARINA: She was also Molly Lambert’s guest over at Grantland, talking Madonna movies and Fox’s Empire (which has JUDD NELSON on it now).

THE CAR TALK OF SCRIBES: Sherman and Jess answer an aspiring writer’s question on A Tiny Sense Of Accomplishment.

THE WILHELM SCREAM:  This particular sound effect is just one of the overused movie/television sound effects that Mike discusses on Reasonably Sound.

THE WILHELM SCREAM II:  This compilation of the aforementioned yelp is pretty great. George Lucas is clearly a fan.

THE BEST ARCHERY VIDEO YOU WILL WATCH TODAY: Not joking about this.

BOOGIE NIGHTS QUOTE GOES HERE: If you like Paul Thomas Anderson, you’ll like his interview with Marc Maron.

THIS TOO SHALL PASS: Home Dunk‘s John Moe uses this OK Go song to ponder how sports fans can maintain that fandom in the face of cheating and systematic maiming.

DEFLATE-GATE: This is possibly the stupidest name and thing ever, but it made David Roth write about Bill Belichick, so some good has come of it.
