WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies topped the chart with 21.9 million.  This final installment has topped the chart for every day of its release, except for Christmas.  It is tracking about where the prior Hobbit flicks have been, but lower than the Lord of the Rings trilogy.  Into The Woods places with 19 million, again edging out Unbroken, which shows with 18.4 million. Both of these had budgets in the 50-65 million range and should turn a tidy profit once they run overseas.  The Woman in Black 2: The Angel of Death takes the fourth slot with a much-stronger-than-expected 15.1 million debut (gurus projected 9-11 million).  As such it's likely to profit on a presumably low budget (the original cost only 15 million and included Daniel radcliffe in the cast).  Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb rounds out the Top Five with 14.5 million, which means the film may not reach profitability in theaters, but probably not too big a loss before heading to the home market.

THE NEW YEAR STARTS HERE (see y'all Friday. Or Monday. Not sure yet.):

...with THE BEAT FARMERS!  Making a tradition of this more sober than usual, professionally-shot, early BF gig recorded at Universal Studios, including "There She Goes Again" (VU); "Road to Ruin," "Bigger Fool," "Reason to Believe" (Springsteen), "Powderfinger" (N. Young), "Happy Boy," "Big Ugly Wheels," "Bigger Stones," "Gun Sale at the Church," "Dallas Blues," "I Wanna Be Free," "Lakeside Trailer Park," "Death Train," and "Seven Year Itch."  If you're new to the band, my picks would be "Bigger Stones," "Happy Boy" and the cover of your choice.  BONUS:  Now how much would you pay?  But wait... there's more!  If you really want to see someone put the "bar" in "bar band," watch these NSFW clips from Houston, TX of the late Country Dick Montana leading the band through "Lucille" (K. Rogers) -- complete with his favorite beer bottle stunts -- followed by "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Wino," "Are You Drinkin' With Me, Jesus?" and "Mondo."  SUPER-SPECIAL BONUS: Country Dick rolls out "California Kid" and "Anarchy in the UK" (Language warning).

JOE JACKSON: Pate frequently attempted "One More Time" to hilarious effect, so today I stick with Joe's early material, including "Sunday Papers" live on the OGWT, "Kinda Kute" on the Kenny Everett Video Show, a Beat Crazy-era run of "On Your Radio" the official clip for "It's Different For Girls" and a bracing live take on "I'm The Man." That last one is taken from the Rock Goes To College show, which also boasts this pulsing version of his signature "Is She Really Going Out With Him?"  BONUS: The appropos finale, "Got The Time?"
