Heady Entertainment: Desus & Mero Stay Dank; "Weird City" Melts Minds
The hottest pot-friendly pop culture of the week also includes the new season of "At Home With Amy Sedaris," as well as the riotous new pro wrestling film, "Fighting with My Family."

Welcome back to Heady Entertainment, MERRY JANE's weekly guide to just-released movies, books, and music — all fresh, dank, and THC-friendly. In specific, we choose our picks based on how they can enhance your combined consumption of cannabis and entertainment.

In theaters, Fighting With My Family is a full-blown riot set in the always tripped-out world professional wrestling, while How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World wraps up the animated trilogy with the most dazzling visual to date. On the small screen, At Home With Amy Sedaris spikes traditional craft-and-kitchen shows with killer acid; Deus & Moro take their dope talk to Showtime; The Drug King blows the lid off the 1970s narcotics trade in Japan; United Skates exposes the unsung glory of urban roller rinks; and Jordan Peele opens the gates to Weird City

Vintage horror-to-get-high-to arrives with collector’s editions of the Italian screamer All the Colors of the Dark, and Japan’s all-time splatter-shock champ, Audition. On the music front, Czarface Meets Ghostface is a title that says it all (and smokes all comers); while two other stoner music icons — Les Claypool and Sean Lennon — team up as the Claypool/Lennon Delirium. 

So let’s get straight — but not “straight” — to this week’s fresh-rolled recommendations.
