When June Melby was ten years old, her parents decided on a whim to buy the miniature golf course in the small Wisconsin town where they vacationed every summer. Without any business experience or outside employees, the family sets out to open Tom Thumb Miniature Golf to the public. Naturally, there are bumps along the way. In My Family and Other Hazards, Melby recreates all the squabbling, confusion, and ultimately triumph, of one family's quest to build something together, and brings to life the joys of one of America's favorite pastimes. In sharp, funny prose, we get the hazards that taunted players at each hole, and the dedication and hard work that went into each one's creation. All the familiar delights of summer are here--snowcones and popcorn and long days spent with people you love. Melby's relationship with the course is love-hate from the beginning, given the summer's freedom it robs her of, but when her parents decide to sell the course years later, her panicked reaction surprises even her. Now an adult living in Hollywood, having flown the Midwest long ago, she flies back to the course to help run it before the sale goes through, wondering if she should try to stop it. As the clock ticks, she reflects on what the course meant to her both as a child and an adult, the simpler era that it represents, and the particular pains of losing your childhood home, even years after you've left it

There’s no bitter rivalry or beef between Drake, one of the hottest rappers du jour, and Lil Wayne, the elder statesman and mogul who signed him to his Young Money label five years ago, but don’t get it twisted: This show is actually a battle of sorts. With no headliner on the bill, the two rappers have been interspersing alternating solo sections with good-natured verbal sparring at the shows. The tour has a companion app that fans can download to score each battle and a winner will be crowned at the end of the show. Boston went to Weezy and Drake took NYC.

Glastonbury 2011. As Fenech-Soler’s set draws to a close in a packed tent filled with people who knew and adored their songs, the band’s four members experience a flood of emotions.

L.A. independent film favorites Rebecca Baron (okay bye-bye) and Adele Horne (Tailenders), both known for intimately observed essay films, also produce visually nuanced works on the role of perception in cinema. Their latest films offer distinctive takes on how photographic records reveal what may otherwise elude the immediate senses: the hidden, the unseen. Baron’s Detour De Force (2014, 29 min., DCP) visits the world of “thoughtographer” Ted Serios, who in the mid-1960s specialized in generating Polaroid images by force of mind alone. Horne debuts In Common (2014, 19 min., 16mm), which sensuously chronicles the cycles of days and seasons in a hillside urban garden.
