THE iPOD CLASSIC, R.I.P..

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: No Good Deed tops the chart with 24.5 million, another Screen gems mid-September special, boosted by the presence of Idris Elba. Director Will Packer has made 10 films for Screen Gems; only one has lost money, and this one doesn't look like the second.  Dolphin Tale 2 places with 16.6 million, as it's the first new family pic to open since early August. That's a bit worse than the original, butmay still make a profit if it's near as leggy as the original.  Guardians of the Galaxy drops back out of the top slt to show with 8 million, which is still above the consensus projection for this weekend.  GotG also broke the 300 million mark (600+ million in total) and stands an excellent chance of becoming marve's 3rd biggest, behind The Avengers and Iron Man 3Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles is also leggy with another 4.8 million in the fourth slot.  Let's Be Cops also clings to the bottom of the Top 5 with another 4.3 million. The Drop's near-wide debut was enough to land in sixth place, which is alright for a more serious movie.  All in all, pretty typical mid-September behavior at the box office.

KANYE WEST demanded fans at his Melbourne show on Wednesday stand up, then realized at least one was in a wheelchair and another was wavbing a prosthetic limb. He's the Joe Biden of rap.

NORTH KOREA sentenced one of the three Americans known to be held in the country to six years of hard labor for committing “hostile acts” against the North.

THE ISLAMIC STATE executed British aid worker David Haines. Prime Minister Cameron vowed that Britain will hunt down the Islamic State killers. Meanwhile, ISIS and "moderate" Syrian rebels  reportedly struck a cease-fire deal on Friday. Also, Islamic State militants, who once relied on wealthy Persian Gulf donors for money, have become a self-sustaining financial juggernaut.

THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD: Leaders of Egypt's Muslim Brotherhood exiled in Qatar will leave the Gulf country after it came under enormous pressure to cut support for the Islamist group, a Brotherhood official said.

SYRIA: While the Islamic State group is getting the most attention now, another band of extremists in Syria - a mix of hardened jihadis from Afghanistan, Yemen, Syria and Europe - poses a more direct and imminent threat to the United States, working with Yemeni bomb-makers to target U.S. aviation, American officials say.
