Say, hear anything about an eclipse today?   Printer-friendly page   Send this story to someone

THIS IS IT: It's NSFW, but this is it. We're done now. You can shut it down now. Just in time for the eclipse.

GRIZZLY BEAR stream their first album in five years, Painted Ruins.

IRON & WINE play for Pitchfork on Facebook.

RYAN ADAMS beefed with FATHER JOHN MISTY over the weekend, but apologized.


ECLIPSE SONGS: Ten of The Best.


WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Hitman's Bodyguard tops the chart with 21.6MM, well ahead of industry predictions in the mid-teens. Annabelle: Creation places with 15.5MM on a 56 percent drop that's not bad for a horror film. Logan Lucky shows with 8MM, which is a bit disappointing, even against a 29MM budget. Dunkirk takes the fourth slot with 6.7MM and approaches 400MM worldwide. The Nut Job 2: Nutty By Nature rounds out the top five as it falls 39 percent to 5.1MM.

LOGAN LUCKY: The theft in this movie get called the "Hillbilly Heist" and "Ocean's 7-11," both of which would have been an apt title for this latest film ofrom Oceans' director Steven Soderbergh.  Like the Ocean's, Logan Lucky assembles a fine ensemble cast in service of a smart, twisty script that walks a fine line between respect and mockery of its Appalachian milieu. A comedy for our times.

JERRY LEWIS, the comedian and filmmaker who was adored by many, disdained by others, but unquestionably a defining figure of American entertainment in the 20th century, died on Sunday morning at his home in Las Vegas. He was 91. I will always remember him for his personal craziness during the final hours of MDA telethons in the 1970s, and for a riveting performance in The King of Comedy, which suggested a vast, untapped capacity for drama.

DICK GREGORY, the pioneering black satirist who transformed cool humor into a barbed force for civil rights in the 1960s, then veered from his craft for a life devoted to protest and fasting in the name of assorted social causes, health regimens and conspiracy theories, died Saturday in Washington. He was 84.

JOSS WHEDON's ex-wife unloads in an open letter.

RIC FLAIR is "awake, communicating and progressing" after undergoing surgery and suffering from multiple organ problems.
