Admit it, the thing that brightens your cubicle on most bleak office days is YouTube. Watching random videos of people behaving foolishly is a fantastic way to while away the gap between lunch and quitting time, and YouTube is chock-full of just such nuts. But why stop watching just because you're not at work? The City Museum Outdoor Movie Series returns around 8 p.m. on Friday, May 30, with staff favorites from the viral-video hall of fame. The Dramatic Chipmunk's Dr. Evil impersonation, Fabio's infamous roller coaster goose-smash and "ghost-riding" saggy-pants morons are all on the roster (which will hopefully also include a personal favorite, "The Emo Song.") In addition, there is a high potential for some good, ol' fashion Rickrolling clips (a meme that's never gonna give you up and never gonna let you down). The Outdoor Movie Series is included with regular museum admission ($12, $10 after 5 p.m.) and can be seen from the outdoor exhibit Monstrocity or the parking lot (chairs will be set up). The City Museum is located at 701 North 15th Street; call 314-231-2489 or visit www.citymuseum.org for more information.
