PETE SEEGER, the singer, folk-song collector and songwriter who spearheaded an American folk revival and spent a long career championing folk music as both a vital heritage and a catalyst for social change, died on Monday in Manhattan. He was 94. The New York Times obituary, however, is pretty lame when it comes to discussing Seeger's Communist past (as the NYT knows, Seeger didn't denounce Stalin until the 1990s).  The New Republic does a better job, and refers to ex-communist Ron Radosh's writings on Seeger. Whatever one's opinion of Seeger's politics, his music, Stalinism, or the blacklist, the supposed Paper of Record could have done much better at reporting that aspect on Seeger's momentous life and career.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Ride Along repeats atop the chart with 21.2 million; its 49 percent drop is not terrible after a long weekend debut, and 75.4 million against a 25 million production budget should leave a happy studio. Lone Survivor repeats at No. 2 with 12.6 million; again, a 43 percent drop isn't great for a well-reviewed war movie (and one unlikely to do big overseas biz), but 93.6 million so far against a 40 million production budget isn't bad. The Nut Job shows with 12.3 million on a 37 percent drop -- and should recoup its 42 million production budgetin the coming week.  Frozen moves up a notch to the fourth slot with another 9 million and a 347 million domestic total against a 150 million production budget (worldwide, it has crossed the 800 million mark).  Jack Ryan Shadow Recruit rounds out the Top Five with 8.8 million; the reboot seems unlikely to recoup its 60 million budget domestically, but has grossed 76.7 million worldwide so far.  Below the fold, I, Frankenstein opened in sixth place with 8.3 million against a 65 million budget. Ouch. I note, however, that Lionsgate isn't really taking the hit for this -- Lakeshore Entertainment (which produced the similar Underworld series) is really the company on the hook for this one. Also, American Hustle continues to lead the Oscar-bait on this week's chart, despite the widening releases for Dallas Buyers Club and Nebraska.

LIBYA: Kidnappers holding five Egyptian diplomats gave Egypt 24 hours to release Libyan Revolutionaries Operations Room head Shaban Hadia Al-Zway, who was arrested two days ago in Alexandria on suspicion of links to al Qaeda. As a precaution, Egypt evacuated staff from its embassy in Tripoli and consulate in Benghazi.

SYRIA: The Assad regime and the Syrian opposition failed to reach any agreements in their first face-to-face meeting.

THE UNITED STATES Congress cut the US military and development aid budget for Afghanistan for this year to $1.1 billion, down from last year's $2.1 billion, in the wake of President Karzai's refusal to sign a bilateral security agreement and reports of waste and fraud in Afghanistan.

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

...with THE CLASH! Although Saturday Night Live polices clips turning up o­n the Internet, we have its long defunct imitator, Fridays, to thank for these April 1980 high-octane performances of "London Calling" and "Train In Vain," followed by equally powerful takes o­n "The Guns of Brixton" and "The Clampdown."

MY BLOODY VALENTINE have innovated a great deal in the world of drums, rhythm and percussion over their 30-year career, but this has been overlooked in the race to acclaim their guitar progressions.

LYDIA LOVELESS talks to SPIN about jumping from alt-country to fuzzy jangle-pop, firing her Dad from the band, and more...

JAMES GOVAN: The successor to Otis Redding who wasn't.

CUTOUT BIN: From Robyn Hitchcock to Belle & Sebastian, from Radiohead to Edgar Winter, from Scott McKenzie to The Jam, plus Jimi Hendrix, Stone Roses, the Beatles, Todd Rundgren and more -- this Friday's fortuitous finds are streaming from the Pate page at the ol' HM.

NOW SHOWING: This weekend's only new wide release is I, Frankenstein, which seems like the unholy Frankenspawn of Van Helsing and Underworld and unsurprisingly was not screened for critics. However, Oscar bait Nebraska (91 percent) and Dallas Buyers Club (93 percent) are expanding wide or near-wide.

JUSTIN BIEBER was arrested in Miami Beach early Thursday on charges of drunk driving and drag-racing. His people are urging him to seek help. Bieber reportedly ratted out his mother as one of his drug suppliers.

SYRIA: Al Qaeda emir Ayman al Zawahiri issued an audio statement urging jihadist groups in Syria to avoid "partisan fanaticism" and focus on their common enemies, to submit themselves to a shared sharia court with enforcement powers, and to feel free to name a leader for themselves.

LIBYA: The Congress commissioned President Nuri Abu Sahmain to assume the role of Commander in Chief for a month to deal with instability in the country, including ongoing clashes in Sebha.
