- Brooklyn residents are (rightfully) freaking out about MTV's Video Music Awards, which happen in two weeks at Barclays and is likely to cause a big Prospect Heights clusterfuck. MTV officials have yet to address concerns about traffic, noise or Daft Punk sightings. [The Brooklyn Paper]

- There is practically an unlimited supply of The Wire GIFs in on Darius Kazemi's bot-powered Scenes from The Wire Tumblr. [Gawker]

- Cinéastes, take note: Woody Allen's latest film, Blue Jasmine, which we gave five stars in our review, is screening at the BAM Harvey Theater's massive Steinberg Screen through August 22. Sounds like the perfect date night to us. [Brooklyn Based]

- The New York Times reports that a new Dave Eggers novel, The Circle, will be out this fall. Hallelujah! [ArtsBeat]

- Explore "40 maps they didn't teach you in school," from countries ranked by order of friendliness to foreigners to the best places to be a mother. [The Washington Post]

- 30 Rock doyenne Tina Fey is working on a new TV show for NBC. It will be a "female-centric comedy," though no word on its name or premiere date yet. [Refinery29]
