Weekend To-Do List: Making History Sexy Edition

135245__new_lHey, did you know today would’ve been Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s 250th birthday? (All together now: ”1985: Austrian rock singer Falco records  ‘Rock Me Amadeus’!”)

If you’re looking to plan your weekend around celebrating the man’s big two-five-oh, you know NPR’s gonna be getting their Wolfie on all weekend long, or else you can go back — way back — to 1984’s Oscar-winning biopic, Amadeus, starring Tom Hulce and F. Murray Abraham. Of course, there’s other ways you can be a history buff while being totally entertained this weekend. Here’s a few options:

-Get thee to the nearest theater and catch The New World (pictured), Terrence Malick’s meditative take on the story of John Smith and Pocahontas, starring Colin Farrell and Q’orianka Kilcher. (Our own Lisa Schwarzbaum gives it an A-).

-VH1 Classic gives you a lesson in the ’80s sounds of pop songbird Cyndi Lauper (Friday, Jan. 27, 8-9:30 pm)

-If you don’t want to watch thespians making movie history at the Screen Actors Guild Awards, try flipping over to The First Emperor: The Man Who Made China (Sunday, Jan. 29, 9-11 pm, Discovery)

-Or, if you’re not feeling like getting out of the easy chair, read up on the history of Happiness. Our Abby West calls it an ”engaging stroll through the ages,” and hey, you can keep your WolfMo on in the background.

    I’ll be playing the “Hill Street Blues” Drinking Game. 1 Drink if a man goes down on the job; 2 drinks if someone says “Dogface,” 3 drinks if Fay Furillo cries in the presence of Frank Xavier or a cop gets hazed, and a long, hearty swig if the scruffy cop Belker growls like a dog …
