Every Friday, Off The Record looks to other Milwaukee publications (and beyond) for bits of news we missed throughout the week.

• Ugh, another week. Ugh, summer is winding down. Ugh. Wanna just watch this dumb Milverine music video and wrap things up for a few days? Cool. It’s by Milwaukee band Two And A Half Stars, it features lyrics about Milverine (natch) and the Prius Lady, and good lord has it been almost seven years since Milverine became a known “thing”? Yep. Time is an illusion, living-meme time doubly so. [Urban Milwaukee]
