"Comedown Machine" will release March 26. If that doesn't mean anything to you, consider this: It'll be the fifth record from The Strokes. The name of the album and an image of its cover were discovered serendipitously yesterday by a Reddit user. The user was working with the band's website code, and after some time, he found the code of the album cover, making the refreshingly simple cover art visible. The Strokes may have wanted to keep details of the album cover a secret, but they did release the first track on Soundcloud.

The CTA today released details about its upcoming experiment with bus rapid transit, an express bus service that typically relies on bus-only lanes and traffic signal priority for buses. The service, which will run along Jeffery Boulevard, will be called Jeffery Jump, the CTA announced today. It also released a photo of the bus, which will be blue. The route, which will operate between 103rd Street and Ogilvie station, is expected to begin running in November. The agency says it will shave five to seven minutes off the morning and evening commute.

EDITOR'S NOTE Ten years ago Monday, fans came as close to seeing the Cubs in the World Series as they'd been in six decades. Then the eighth inning of Game 6 in the National League Championship Series happened, setting off a catastrophic chapter in Chicago sports history. Why relive the Bartman game? Because it's a “where were you when …" moment. Whether you blame him to this day or believe he was a victim of overreaction, you've got an opinion. And even though it knocked Cubs fans down, they just keep getting back up. Which makes this...

**1/2 (out of four) I'd say I'm of two minds about “Disconnect,” but I think it's more like my mind and my heart don't agree on this one. For starters: IMDB plot summaries don't get much drier than, “A drama centered on a group of people searching for human connections in today's wired world.” Come on, you don't want to see that movie. Especially when the poster says “look up” and features a bunch of people milling about. We know we're disconnected - you may have read a story about it earlier today, gazing at your phone/iPad/tiny screen...

On Sept. 25, 1993, Robert O'Dubaine was gunned down in the garage of the Bucktown condo he shared with his girlfriend, Catherine Suh. Investigation Discovery's "FBI: Criminal Pursuit" takes a looks at the infamous Chicago murder case at 9 p.m. April 8 in an episode titled "The Black Widow. " The series presents the case rather cheesily at times through dramatic reenactments of key moments and interviews with real people who were involved at the time. It wastes no time rightfully demonizing Catherine, explaining how she sought...
