Screen Shot 2015-10-09 at 7.04.47 PM.pngWeirdest TV Show: NBC is developing a dramedy inspired by Wendy Davis, the former Texas state senator who became a bit of a political celebrity after taking a public stand in favor of abortion rights in the state. It's certainly a different kind of bio-TV show than one based on, say, Nicki Minaj's life, but maybe there will be some crossovers? -- Eric Thurm

Best Abrupt Album Announcement: Beach House, who announced a forthcoming album just a couple of months after their last, Depression Cherry. It's a pretty inspiring turnaround, and will double the dream for anyone already hungering for another hit of the band's hyper-defined sound. -- ET

Best Celebrity Book Deal: Because Quvenzhané Wallis is the best. (If you haven't seen Beasts of the Southern Wild, get your shit together.) -- ET


Best Way to Spend Two Hours: Watching this interview with Kanye West -- you might have seen some highlights in other places around the internet, but trust me, it's actually quite different than sitting through the whole thing, which is a super interesting and relatively intimate portrayal of where the artist is at now. -- ET 

Best Soundcloud Study Guide: Not a Pitchfork contributor with an encyclopedic knowledge of every electronically-engineered Internet microgenre to emerge in the past five years? Well, Fader's got you just in case you were wondering what the fuck shitgaze was. -- Sandra Song

Most Self-Consciously Reflexive Interview: Speaking of the Fader 100, they also published this equal parts amazing and cringe-inducing conversation about quote-unquote indie between Hipster Runoff's Carles and Vampire Weekend's Ezra Koenig. -- SS

Most Likely To Fire All Their Social Media Interns: In yet another attempt to pander to cool, hip #Internet teens, breakfast-y brands à la IHOP, Waffle House and Denny's have been ganging up on McDonald's #AllDayBreakfast tag -- to very lame results. -- SS

Most Straightforward Men's Specialty Product: Did you know there's a site selling toilet paper wipes for dudes? Called DudeProducts? No? Well you can make sure your manly butt is super clean for the low-low price of $6.99! -- SS

Civic News of the Week: Boston's Mayor Marty Walsh declared October 10th "Patti Smith Day." -- AS
