art Illustrator, author and designer Chesley McLaren, an all-time MUG favorite, is selling limited-edition prints of her work at Paris Framemakers, 323 Amst [75th] 212.873.5602.




education We got an email from an adjunct professor who teaches at three universities in the area. She works at three institutions as a matter of survival: adjunct professors "teach 60% of classes and make up as much as 75% of the higher ed faculty at every institution, earn as little as $25,000 a year and typically have no benefits." That is all kinds of wrong. Sign the petition asking the Director of the Labor Department's Wage and Hour division to investigate these labor practices.



music Last Call for the Quiet Life, the new album by L.A.-based, indie-pop band Buddy, is out August 19. Good stuff. Stream it here.




books Right smack dab in the middle of town: the magic of the city's rooftops is captured in the new book Roof Explorer's Guide: 101 New York City Rooftops by Leslie Adatto.




movie Dinosaur 13, opening tomorrow, tells the true story of how the greatest dinosaur discovery ever—the most complete T. rex—turned into an epic battle. Based on the book Rex Appeal: The Amazing Story of Sue, the Dinosaur That Changed Science, the Law, and My Life.
