Posted on

DVD
1. WINGED MIGRATION
Think you’re tough? Try flying thousands of miles each year, like the birds in this nature-docu DVD. So…who’s the tough guy now?

TV
2. ‘SURVIVOR’ OUTCASTS
A nifty twist in CBS’ reality-show staple brings Lil and Burton back to the island. But can they counter the shaggy ruthlessness of Pirate Rupert?

MUSIC
3. ”ALL OF THIS,” BLINK-182 (AND ROBERT SMITH)
You’ve Goth to listen to this moody new track in which the punk-popsters are backed by the Cure frontman’s noirish vocals.

BOOKS
4. THE RABBIT FACTORY, BY LARRY BROWN
Set in Memphis and Mississippi, Brown’s novel is a dry but satisfying slice of Deep South gothic pie.

DVD
5. PUMPING IRON
As captured in the special-edition DVD of this bodybuilding doc, the Governator tokes and jokes, gloats and grunts — and shows not a hint of the man who would one day marry a Kennedy and run Kulli-fornia.

BOOKS
6. THE MAN WHO WALKED BETWEEN THE TOWERS, BY MORDICAI GERSTEIN
Yes, it is a kids’ book, but we’re moved by this dazzlingly illustrated account of a real-life aerialist’s tightrope stroll between the World Trade Center towers.

MUSIC
7. TUPAC: RESURRECTION
Using the words and music of the late rapper, this film breaks through the bravado to illuminate shades of rap’s dark knight.

TV
8. ‘MISS MATCH’ & ‘ARRESTED DEVELOPMENT’
Raise yer hands and promise us you’ll watch these swell but ratings-challenged shows (on NBC and Fox).

MOVIE
9. MASTER AND COMMANDER: THE FAR SIDE OF THE WORLD
Russell Crowe is just one of the reasons to catch this glorious piece of old-fashioned entertainment — a truly see-worthy vessel.

MUSIC
10. TRY THIS, PINK
With the help of Rancid’s Tim Armstrong, Pink’s CD is a raucous and rousing self-portrait of an anti-pop princess in the zone.
