In The Ticket today, Anna Carey lists the flicks every teen girl should see, we head to the opera with The Knife, go duck-watching with Stornoway and hear Luca Guadagnino discuss his new flick I Am Love. Donald Clarke previews the forthcoming Stranger Than Fiction documentary festival and Brian Boyd disses lame Facebook campaigns. And there’s New Music love for Tanlines, The Cast Of Cheers (my pal Billy’s favourite band right now), MEN, Lucy Love and Julian Lynch.

Album of the week comes from MGMT and there are also reviews of releases from Plan B, Scouting For Girls, The Morning Benders, Tallest Man On Earth, We Have Band, Erykah Badu and many more.

In the cinemas up and down the land, new flicks for your viewing pleasure include Whip It (what are the odds that Drew Barrymore’s rollerderby fandango will herald a rollermania revival?), I Am Love, Shelter and Little Foxes. Plus film news, the weekly movie quiz and, not forgetting, DC’s ever-entertaining Screenwriter column and blog.

The OTR plugs service is now open for your, well, plugs. Please feel free to plug and recommend stuff away to your heart’s content, but remember to declare an interest where one should be declared. Please note that plugs are accepted on the whim of OTR and may be edited for length/clarity/common sense. Events with a commercial sponsor are really ads and will probably not be published in this slot. Is this a sunny weekend I see before me?
