KarlIT'S PARTLY EXHAUSTION AND PARTLY A SLOW "NEWS" DAY BUT...

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with JOHN HUGHES! The sportos, motorheads, geeks, sluts, buds, wasteoids, dweebies and dickheads, they all adore him. They think he's a righteous dude. The writer/director behind Sixteen Candles, The Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, Weird Science, National Lampoon's Vacation movies, Home Alone, Planes, Trains & Automobiles and many more died Aug 6, 2009.  Hughes masterfully married music to movies, so I pay video tribute to him today, starting (of course) with "Don't You Forget About Me" by Simple Minds from The Breakfast Club (the drumming o­n this song is impeccable), and Karla DeVito's "We Are Not Alone," along with the Ramones playing "Blitzkrieg Bop" (from National Lampoon's Vacation), David Bowie's "Young Americans" and The Vapors o­ne-hit wonder, "Turning Japanese" and Billy Idol's "Rebel Yell" (all from Sixteen Candles, which opens to a clip of veteran WLS DJs Larry Lujack and Tommy Edwards), Van Halen's cover of "(Oh) Pretty Woman" and General Public's "Tenderness" (both from Weird Science), the Psychedelic Furs re-recorded title track from Pretty In Pink, which also featured Jon Cryer lip-synching to Otis Redding's "Try A Little Tenderness" (that last clip is a blistering live take from the 1967 Stax tour -- and excellent, btw), The Smiths' "Please, Please, Please Let Me Get What I Want" (a Hughes perennial; here, the Dream Academy cover from FBDO), and OMD's "If You Leave," plus two more from Ferris Bueller's Day Off, "Danke Schoen" and "Twist and Shout" (which was shot o­n Dearborn and Randolph Streets in Chicago, with International Polka Queen Vlasta atop the float, though Cameron and Sloane were in front of the Post Office down the street), plus Yello's unforgettable-no-matter-how-you-try "Oh, Yeah." Videos are scarce for Some Kind of Wonderful, but I found Flesh for Lulu's "I Go Crazy" and the March Violets' take on the Stones' "Miss Amanda Jones."  BONUS: Molly Ringwald's post-MeToo re-evaluation of the films that made her career.

PHOEBE BRIDGERS: Live on KEXP at Home.

DIRTY PROJECTORS visit with World Cafe.

BON IVER shares "AUATC," with contributions from Bruce Springsteen, Jenny Lewis and others.

CREAM syncs "I Feel Free" at the Beat Club.

THE NUMBER ONES looks at former prog overlords Yes's unlikely synth-rock blockbuster "Owner Of A Lonely Heart."

REN & STIMPY are getting rebooted with a new creative team.

PRINCE ANDREW faces fresh allegations in newly released court documents in the Jeffrey Epstein case.

BEN AFFLECK & ANA de ARMAS can't keep their hands off each other.

ZOE SALDANA apologizes for playing Nina Simone.

I AM WOMAN: A Helen Reddy biopic has a trailer online.

JAKE PAUL was raided by the FBI.

WHO'S THE BOSS? A sequel with Tony Danza and Alyssa Milano is in the works.

COYOTE UGLY: An Oral History.

THE FIRST ATOMIC BOMB WAS DROPPED ON HIROSHIMA on this date in 1945. The act that ushered in the nuclear age, but also helped end World War II, still stokes controversy. Three men involved in the attack o­n Hiroshima share their memories with the BBC. Film showing the effects of the attack was classified for decades, as were the complete (unredacted) "Magic" military intercepts, which tend to show Japan was not about to surrender. Those interested in a relatively neutral view of the events leading to the bombing could do worse than 1995's Hiroshima, a joint Canadian-Japanese production for Showtime.  Hard to find tho. 

A FERRET and a ball drop.

A CAT jumps a stream in slo-mo.

ANOTHER CAT escaped prison after being found with two grams of heroin, two SIM cards, and a memory chip hidden in a plastic bag tied to its collar.

A SQUIRREL, stymied by an escalator.
