Top Pop Culture Picks for the Week 


Cold War Kids

Dear Miss Lonelyhearts

(Downtown Records)

”Miracle Mile,” the jitter opening track on the latest album from SoCal indie rockers Cold War Kids, is the best song on this disc. And yet, the anthemic “Lost That Easy” and the atmospheric “Fear & Trembling” suggest there’s more than just one good single on this release.

John Dies at the End

(Magnolia Home Entertainment)

This campy sci-fi movie about a couple of college dropouts who start hallucinating after taking a hit of a strange drug called “soy sauce” isn’t a work of fine art by any stretch of the imagination. But it’s good fun that hearkens back to the b-movie days of the ‘70s.
