Please note that this recommendation is unrated

Most people wouldn't think that Iranian western vampire horror could be a genre. But A Girl Walks Home Alone at Night manages to mix all of those together, and more, to create an intriguing and compelling film.

Shot in dramatic, high contrast black and white, A Girl has the heavy style of a Tarantino movie, but from a very non-American perspective.

Add it to your October horror marathon, because you won't see another movie like this.

Each Tuesday we'll share something to try and help you at out home. Be it a digital tool to communicate, or just a practice to help keep a bit of sanity.

Route 66 is an American icon, a long stretch of road cutting through the country from Chicago to California. And while it has lost some luster with the coming of larger, faster highways, the historic route is still there.

So whether you want to make it a road trip one day, or just want to see what made the road so special, take a look.

The Nikola Tesla Technical Museum is one of the most visited museums in Croatia. And while few of us will make it there in person, you can take a virtual walk through whenever you'd like.

Named after Nikola Tesla, the museum is dedicated to inventions that people have created while trying to overcome natural obstacles.

My Favorite Thing is Monsters is a strange graphic novel. Created in the format of the diary of a 10 year old girl, this book goes in a number of unexpected directions.

It begins with Karen Reyes becoming fascinated with the mystery of who killed her upstairs neighbor, Anka Silverberg. The book weaves this in among details of Karen's daily life, and eventually the story of Anka's life.

Today's recommendation is a YouTube channel that stopped posting 3 years ago. So why is it still worth checking out?

PBS' Idea Channel, hosted by Mike Rugnetta, is one of those things that reminds you that the internet isn't such a terrible place. In each episode he digs into connections between pop culture, technology and art. But he also fostered a great community in the comments, curating and featuring the best responses as followup videos.

In this digital presentation of Petra you can take a virtual walk through the canyon that houses the city, complete with audio narration.

Most people think of Al Khaznah, the building in the background, when they hear Petra, but it' actually a dessert city larger than Manhattan!

It's October, which means it's Halloween! But since it's early we'll start with a love story. It’s a tale of a love from long ago.

Hadestown may take place in a city based on hell, but it tells the tale of Orpheus and Eurydice. And the tale of Hades and Persephone. It's beautiful and sad and perfect for fall.

It’s an old tale from way back when
And we’re gonna sing
We’re gonna sing
We’re gonna sing it again!

Not to give too much of a platform to our "competition", but we'd like to show you the Library of Congress' digital offerings.

The nation's library doesn't just have text to browse, either. Their collection includes videos and music. So if you have any interest in something historical, from an obscure musician to the illuminated pages of medieval books, you might want to swing by and see what they have.

"In this funny, heartfelt story, Billi's (Awkwafina) family returns to China under the guise of a fake wedding to stealthily say goodbye to their beloved matriarch--the only person that doesn't know she only has a
few weeks to live."

I've been a fan of Awkwafina's since I picked up her wonderful walking guide to NYC. To see her go from NY local and musician to a widely recognized actor has been great.

So take a look at her starring in The Farewell, on of last year's best movies you may not have seen.

The Asbury Lanes used to be a local dive that provided bowling, live music, and shockingly good food. While it has come under new management and is completely renovated, the old venue's charm and personality have been recorded in an online 3D exhibit here. So check it out for a bit of our state's recent pride.
