NIRVANA: The making of Nevermind, now 25, is the subject of Pitchfork's Liner Notes. Spencer Elden recreated the album cover photo in SFW fashion.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Magnificent Seven remake easily topped the chart with 35MM, with Chris Pratt boosting the usually solid Denzel opening range, though with a 90MM budget, this one may still need 150MM overseas to profit on big screens.Hard out there for a Western, especially a familiar one.  Storks placed with 21.8MM, perhaps even more disappointing against a 70MM budget, another film that will need foreign receipts to have a chance at profit in theaters.  Former champ Sully landed at No. 3 with 13.8MM on a leggy 36 percent drop, so faroutperforming recent Tom Hanks outings like Bridge of Spies and Captain PhillipsBridget Jones's Baby took the fourth slot with 4.5MM on a 47 percent drop from an already bad debut weekend -- but again, strong overseas grosses (particularly in the UK) could still put this threequel in the black.  Snowden rounded out the Top Five with 4.1MM and it seems unlikely this subject will generate enough sales overseas to profit.

... with THE BYRDS! To everything there is a season, and when the leaves start turning, my thoughts turn to this rare live threefer of "Turn! Turn!
