Good morning! I hope you made the most of the weekend; I watched a few movies and started a great graphic memoir from our longtime pal MariNaomi. I hope these headlines help melt away your Monday worries:
- We have a profile of George Takei.
- Watch a trailer for the new season of Community on Yahoo.
- Penny Marshall remembers her friend Robin Williams in the New Yorker.
- You can download a collection of Dungeons & Dragons short stories read by Felicia Day, "Weird Al" Yankovic, David Duchovny and others for free.

- Starz renewed Outlander for a second season.
- I remember many years ago when we tried to determine the best American rock band on Pop Candy. Here, Grantland names some contenders.

- Joe Strummer's Thunderbird is on eBay.
- Alison Brie and Jennifer Lawrence appeared in this horrible-looking MTV pilot.
- Yep, Joseph Gordon-Levitt is a feminist.
