1. “Wet Hot American Summer” to get second Netflix reboot.

Looks like prequel “Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp” wasn’t enough to satisfy fans of cult comedy “Wet Hot American Summer.” Netflix has announced plans to produce another reboot set 10 years in the future — or 1991. The reboot “Ten Years Later” is set for release in 2017.

2. El Arroyo helps Jay Z recount his problems.

Remember the days when it was just 99, Jay Z? Austin’s El Arroyo sign, which never misses an opportunity to offer a relevant quip, weighed in on the Jay Z controversy surrounding Beyoncé’s recent “Lemonade” release and helped the “99 Problems” rapper recount his problems.

3. Get elevated at Levitation.

Nine years strong Levitation, previously called Austin Psych Fest, will welcome a whole host of uplifting acts this weekend when performers like Animal Collective and Brian Wilson make their way out to Carson Creek Ranch, Austin360’s Deborah Sengupta Stith reports. Check out our festival guide here.

4. Richard Sherman has a new gig.

Looks like even Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman isn’t above making a little extra cash on the side by driving for Lyft. In the video, it’s clear fans who got picked up by the football star weren’t expecting much more than a free water bottle. According to the Bleacher Report Sherman is one of many professional athletes to team up with the ride-hailing program in offering surprise rides.

5. Baby’s first surrealist novel.

Maybe you read it when you were a kid, maybe you’ve never heard of it — either way the 1978 surrealist children’s novel “Sideways Stories from Wayside School” is a joyful, silly book for young and old readers alike. The Atlantic’s Adrienne LaFrance tells of how the book shaped her to be a brave, exploratory reader.
