ROB WILLIAMS / MUSIC

Hey ho, let's go

Joey Ramone would have turned 61 on May 19, so to honour the late Ramones frontman, a posthumous collection of material, including acoustic reworkings of two Ramones songs, was released this week on the album Ya Know?. The punchy, mid-tempo rallying cry Rock SSRqN' Roll Is the Answer was released on Record Store Day last month, and the Beat on the Brat sound-alike What Did I Do to Deserve You? is streaming online at joeyramone.com. If that's not enough, you could just go back and listen to the first eight Ramones albums.

RANDALL KING / MOVIES

Tramp stamp of approval

Charlie Chaplin always said his 1925 film The Gold Rush was the one for which he wanted to be remembered. Tonight is your last chance to see a freshly restored version of the film, complete with a newly recorded orchestral score of Chaplin's own music, on Cinematheque's biggish screen. At 7 p.m.

Feud for thought

There are disagreements, and then there are disagreements -- but there's only one long-simmering hatred whose names and nature are the reference point whenever two sides can't find a way to get along: Hatfields and McCoys. The famous feud is the subject of an ambitious, big-budget TV miniseries -- appropriately titled Hatfields & McCoys -- starring Kevin Costner, Bill Paxton, Mare Winningham, Tom Berenger and Powers Boothe, which premières Monday at 7 p.m. on History TV.

MORLEY WALKER / BOOKS

Oprah already has her copy

After The Corrections in 2001 and Freedom in 2010, American writer Jonathan Franzen has established a pattern of taking almost a decade between novels. That's one reason his new essay collection, Farther Away, comes as a welcome treat. Another reason is his always probing, and earnestly Midwestern, self-examination. Included, by the way, is the piece where he explains how his reaction to The Corrections being picked by Oprah Winfrey's TV book club got twisted into a graceless soundbite.

JILL WILSON / EVENTS

Understanding Animals

World-renowned animal-welfare expert Temple Grandin will be speaking on animal behaviour at an event sponsored by the Winnipeg Humane Society tonight at 8 p.m. at the Hilton Suites, 1800 Wellington Ave. The lecture by the professor of animal science at Colorado State University is sold out, but stand-by tickets may be available to those who get in line at 7:30. If you don't make it in, you could always watch the fascinating HBO biopic Temple Grandin, starring Claire Danes as the autistic author who went from farm girl to designer of livestock facilities. It's available at amazon.ca.
