THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

 

...with THE SWEET!  The bubble-glam rockers are probably best known for the trifecta of "Little Willy," "Ballroom Blitz" and "Fox on the Run," though they also charted with the harder-edged "Action" and the more ballad-y "Love is Like Oxygen."  All of those clips also feature the band's rather unique fashion sense, but you have to see the clip for "Wig Wam Bam" -- complete with headdress -- to see the band at its most ridiculous.  BONUS: "All That Glitters" is a BBC documentary originally broadcast in February 1974 charting a day in the life of The Sweet.

POM POM SQUAD plays KEXP.

ST. PAUL & THE BROKEN BONES plays KEXP.

DEF LEPPARD plays the hits for Kimmel.

IGGY POP and novelist OTESSA MOSHFEGH discuss raging against the machine, weaponizing established paradigms, and leaving New York for greener pastures.

JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE sold his song catalogue to Hipgnosis Song Management.

DISCORD: The gamers' site has become an intimate place for artists and fans to connect and build community.

ALAN WHITE, longtime drummer for prog rock band Yes, has died at home aged 72 after a short illness.

ANDY FLETCHER, the co-founder and keyboardist of beloved synth-pop and New Wave stalwarts Depeche Mode, died at the age of 60.

T. REX: "20th Century Boy." Aow!

 

RAY LIOTTA, the acclaimed actor known for “Goodfellas,” "Something Wild," “Field of Dreams” and many more roles, has died in his sleep at 67.  Many of his memorable roles are surveyed at Rolling Stone and at The Ringer.

TESTIMONY in the Johnny Depp-Amber Heard defamation trial concluded Thursday, with Heard returning to the stand to defend her counterclaim against her former husband.

KEVIN SPACEY has been charged with four counts of sexual assault against three men, Britain's Crown Prosecution Service said on Thursday.

MARILYN MANSON: A civil lawsuit filed by a woman who worked as a personal assistant for Marilyn Manson, has been dismissed based on the statute of limitations.

SPINAL TAP 2: Rob Reiner talks about the sequel at Cannes.

HARRISON FORD congratulated JOHN WILLIAMS on his 90th birthday -- and promoted Indiana Jones 5 -- at Star Wars Celebration.

ANDOR: The Rogue One spin-off has a teaser trailer online.

WILLOW has a teaser trailer online.

WINNIE THE POOH: BLOOD AND HONEY has first look photos online.

MEMORIAL DAY has become -- in the minds of some -- a day devoted to uncovering their swimming pools and barbeques. So take a moment (preferably at 3 p.m. local time) to remember what it's really about.You can read about "The Meaning of Memorial Day" with selections from American authors and statesmen, including Herman Melville, Ernie Pyle, Louisa May Alcott, Frederick Douglass, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Joyce Johnson and the "Arlington Ladies" who attend every funeral in Arlington National Cemetery, to ensure no soldier is buried alone, take more than a moment.  Re-read "A Death in the Family," as powerful as it was when Christopher Hitchens wrote it in 2007.  Revisit William Wyler's footage of the last mission of the Memphis Belle, or check the Tube for Alfred Hitchcock's footage of the liberation of the Belsen concentration camp.  The Wikipedia entry for Memorial Day notes a race track connection unrelated to the Indy 500.  It's a good day -- as good as we are likely to get -- for Sgt. Barry Sadler's No. 1 smash, "Ballad of the Green Berets."  or the movie adaptation of Gen. George S. Patton's "Speech to the Third Army."  As "Greyhawk" once wrote at the Mudville Gazette, "This is Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy it. Celebrate it - the people who died to give you that right would appreciate it. But they didn't die peaceably in their beds, these dogs who fell protecting sheep from wolves."

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE:  Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness threepeats atop the chart with another 31.6MM on a 51 percent drop and looks to top out at 950MM worldwide, which would rank 11th in the MCU, but the second biggest Hollywood movie of the pandemic.  Downton Abbey: A New Era places with a 16MM debut, which is significantly lower than the first movie in this series, yet probably pretty good considering it appeals to an older demo that has been reluctant to return to theaters post-pandemic.  The Bad Guys shows with 6.1MM on a leggy 13 percent drop.  Below the fold, Everything Everywhere All at Once came in sixth with 3.MM on a leggy 6 percent drop, which was enough to make it A24's top earner of all-time with 52.3MM domestic to date.
