... with THE BYRDS!  Pretty much because I dig them as we turn into Spring (or Fall).  Let's start with a rare 1965 clip of their breakthrough smash cover of "Mr. Tambourine Man."  There are screaming girls, plus go-go dancers when they hit Shivaree for "All I Really Want to Do" and "Feel A Whole Lot Better."  Next up is a rare sync of "I Knew I'd Want You." There are even more dancers when they cover Buddy Holly's "Not Fade Away" for Shindig! on June 23, 1965, while I'm pretty sure that's Ed Wynn introducing "Chimes of Freedom."  You might recognize the voice introducing "Bells Of Rhymney" from poolside in August 1965 and "It Won't Be Wrong" from a corral in January 1966 on Where The Action Is.  BONUS:  Want a couple in color?  Here's "Turn, Turn, Turn!" and "Mr. Spaceman." DOUBLE BONUS: A rare 1967 sync of "Eight Miles High."

THE WEEKEND BOX OFFICE was the lowest since Oct. 30-Nov. 1, 1998.  That's right; lower than after 9/11.  Pixar's Onward repeated atop the chart with 10.5MM on a 73 percent drop from last weekend.  I Still Believe placed with 9.5MM against a 14MM budget.  Bloodshot showed with 9.3MM (and 10.5 total with Thursday sneaks) against a 45MM budget.  The Invisible Man took the fourth slot with 6MM on a 60 percent drop that looks to be the smallest drop on the chart.  The Hunt rounded out the Top Five with 5.3MM (5.8MM with sneaks) against a 14MM budget (and likely significant marketing cost, given that the movie was already canceled once).
