Stage Fright 

A live Björk set tops this week's pop culture picks


Björk: Voltaic


The latest project by everyone's favorite swan-wearing Icelandic elf is available in five different packages. The best (and one of the cheapest) is the set that combines a live CD from a London studio with a concert DVD from the tour in support of 2007's Volta. Cool, trippy and sublime — just like Björk!


The Conduit


The controls for this Wii shooting game can be somewhat wobbly. But once you master the point-and-shoot, it's a pretty fun ride. The single-player campaign includes a sizeable arsenal of weapons, but The Conduit really comes alive in multiplayer mode. There aren't many good first-person shooters for the Wii. You can add this one to that short list.


Guitar Hero Smash Hits


It's basically a greatest-hits set culled from other Guitar Hero games (including Encore and Legends of Rock), but why sit through snoozers when you can go straight to "More Than a Feeling," "Barracuda" and "Free Bird"? Best of all, you can play all 48 songs with a full band (yes, even tracks from the original game). For the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and Wii.


The Mighty Boosh


All three seasons of this new-school British comedy group's same-named TV show come to DVD in extras-stuffed two-disc sets. And unlike the episodes that air on Adult Swim, these are the original uncut U.K. versions. That means even more totally effed-up adventures with luggage-packing gorillas, poem-reciting moons and vain Yetis.


The Woodstock Experience


Just in time for the 40th anniversary of the dirty-hippie fest, these five sets pair vintage studio albums by Woodstock artists with their entire festival shows. Now you can compare classics by Jefferson Airplane, Janis Joplin, Santana, Sly & the Family Stone and Johnny Winter (all released in 1969, mere months before Woodstock) with their sloppy live versions.
