BUSY WEEKEND. But I have a few things, mostly this very sad news:

CHARLES BRADLEY, the acclaimed soul singer and exuberant live performer who saw his career ascend late in life, died Saturday following a bout with stomach and liver cancer. He was 68. The Guardian obit is also good, as is this 2014 interview with Noisey including Bradley's general view of humanity.  Pitchfork rounds up seven great song performances, while NPR re-upped his 2016 SXSW performance at Stubb's.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Kingsman: The Golden Circle topped the chart with 39MM -- a few million better than the original, probably several million less than where the gurus projected.  The foreign grossses were 51MM, taking the sequel past the 100MM overall.  The former champ, It, placed with 30MM on a 50 percent drop that's dang leggy for a third frame in the horror genre.  The clown show has already pulled in 266.3MM domestic against a 35MM budget.  The LEGO Ninjago Movie showed with 21.2MM, substantially below the prior movies in this cinematic universe; the stakes will be higher for the proper sequel to The LEGO MovieAmerican Assassin slid 58 percent to the fourth slot with 6.3MM (Lionsgate will have been glad to have sold off the overseas rights).  Home Again rounded out the Top Five with 3.3MM.

ISLE OF DOGS, the next film from Wes Anderson, has a trailer online.

KYLIE JENNER reportedly is pregnant.

I SHOULD BE BACK to full strength tomorrow.

... 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! Turn!", "Bells of Rhymney" and "Mr. Tambourine Man", introduced by... David McCallum? There are more screaming girls, plus go-go dancers when they hit Shivaree for "All I Really Want to Do" and "Feel A Whole Lot Better."  There are even more dancers when they cover "Not Fade Away" for Shindig! on June 23, 1965, while I'm pretty sure that's Ed Wynn introducing "Chimes of Freedom."
