Behind the scenes of summer camp, cooking help and one loud app

DOCUMENTARY | A few weeks ago, I implored you to watch the new Netflix series Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp as it is, more or less, the Citizen Kane of television. As unlikely that a cult film could spawn a series 14 years after its release, perhaps more unlikely was that the original film was ever made in the first place. HURRICANE OF FUN: THE MAKING OF WET HOT takes us back to the spring of 2000, when first-time feature director David Wain convinced a couple of dozen promising comedic actors to spend a month at a camp in the Pennsylvania woods to make a movie about a summer camp. The result was a lot of booze, hilarity and a staggering amount of rain.

FOOD | If you're an aspiring home chef, you're aware that relying on Google results for a reliable recipe is a poor plan. Thankfully, the New York Times has unleashed COOKING.NYTIMES.COM, a dynamic website that features more than 17,000 recipes from Times writers. If you're looking for directions on a specific dish, the site can easily give you recipes, but it's most useful in its tools that help you find cooking ideas by navigating through different categories of cuisine.

APP | Even if you're a student of the Inlander calendar sections, you can fall victim to What? They're On Tour? Syndrome, in which the sufferer somehow lets a favorite band come to town — or a neighboring town — without hitting up the show. BANDSINTOWN can help cure this awful condition by alerting you when acts that fit your fancy are on their way to your city. Fill it with band names, or even just genres, cities or venues, and you'll get alerts when that big show is on the way. You'll never miss a Foghat tour again. ♦
