WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  Ford v Ferrari tops the chart with 31MM, and given the relative drought of Oscar contenders in a biz that allegedly keeps moving the awards season up, the fact that it plays well with older moviegoers gives it a shot at legs into the holiday season.  It made alnost as much total as Midway, which places with 8.8MM on a 51 percent drop and a 35MM domestic total that does not bode well for a 100MM-budget movie.  The re-rebooted Charlie's Angels shows with 8.6MM; given that the 2000 vesrion opened to 40MM, this is bad, even against a reasonable 50MM budget.  Playing With Fire takes the fourth slot with 8.55MM, which means it could beat the Angels when the estimates become actuals.  Last Christmas rounds out the Top Five with 6.7MM and its 35.6MM worldwide gross to date is not too bad against a 30MM budget.

...with THE PAISLEY UNDERGROUND!  A two-part (Part 1, Part 2) feature from the Old Grey Whistle Test on L.A.'s psychedelic-flavored, West Coast scene in the mid-80s. Bands featured include the Long Ryders, Prime Movers, Thin White Rope, Pontiac Brothers and the Rain Parade with a 6 minute live version of No Easy Way Down. The Long Ryders get short shrift so I'll add in their later OGWT appearance to play "Looking For Lewis & Clark." The term "Paisley Underground" is believed to have been jokingly coined by Michael Quercio of the band The Three O'Clock, so I'll toss in the clip for "Her Head's Revolving" as a bonus. Abther band associated with the scene not featured is The Bangs, a/k/a The Bangles, with an early track, "The Real World."  DOUBLE BONUS: The Guardian Music Blog has a link-rich piece on the Rain Parade and other Paisley Underground bands.
