MIKE MILLS & BILL BERRY joined PETER BUCK onstage at the 40 Watt Club to perform REM's 1984 single “(Don’t Go Back To) Rockville.” Looks like Scott McCaughey, too. (Photo via Tommy Warren / ‏@bigwheat.)

SHEARWATER advance streams Fellow Travelers. Each of its 10 songs pays tribute to an artist with whom the band has toured.

NOW SHOWING: Thor: The Dark World tops the chart with 38 million, on a reasonable-for-a-sequel 55 percent drop. That's 147 million to date domestic, with another 333 million overseas.  But the real story may be The Best Man Holiday placing with 30.6 million -- part of a very good year for African American-centric films. All the better against a 17 million budget (tho not so good for 12 Years A Slave, which slid 30 percent).  Last Vegas crept up a notch to show with 8.9 million and about 47 million so far against a 28 million budget.  Free Virds slips to the fourth slot with 8.3 million and 42 million so far against a 55 million budget.  Bad Grandpa rounds out the Top 5 with 7.7 million and 90 million so far against a 15 million budget.  Below the fold, Ender's Game slides badly, perhaps beyond disappointment.

ALEC BALDWIN recieves a mere 2-week suspension from MSNB, following the actor’s calling a photographer either a “c***sucking f**” or a “c***sucking fathead,” as Baldwin maintains. He claims he was unaware that calling a man "c***sucking" might be considered an anti-gay slur.  He also trotted out his gay hairdresser to defend him. You really can't make stuff like this up.

LAMAR ODOM is set re-sign with the Los Angeles Clippers, according to a source for Us Weekly.

SYRIA: A regime helicopter exploded in the sky over Jassim village in Raqqah.
