ADELE drops a snippet from her upcoming LP.

LENARD COHEN: "Suzanne" is perhaps his best, and it was posted online by...Jan Hammer?

THE MERCURY PRIZE nominees are announced. Congrats.

LAURIE ANDERSON talks to the New York Times about her late husband Lou Reed, Heart of a Dog, and Habeas Corpus.

PHIL LESH of the Grateful Dead has been diagnosed with bladder cancer.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Goosebumps tops the chart with 23.5MM, leveraging the Halloween season to give Jack Black his best live-action debut since Tropic Thunder. The Martian cedes the top spot and places with 21.5MM; this should finish between 400MM and half a billion worldwide.  Bridge of Spies shows with a slightly surprising 15.4MM against a thrifty 40MM budget.  The debut of Crimson Peak takes the fourth slot with 12.9MM against a 55MM budget and may have difficulty profiting on the big screen absent healthier overseas receipts.  Hotel Transylvania 2 rounds out the Top 5 with 12.3MM, which isn't bad considering the arrival of Goosebumps.

CRIMSON PEAK: "It is not a ghost story; it is a story with a ghost in it."  This is what the asiping author played by Mia Wasikowska tells one character in a description almost equally applicable to the latest film from Guillerrmo del Toro.  As such, it walks the line between horror and gothic thriller --which may be the root of its financial problems, tbh--but suited me alright.  There is the ssort of tortured romance one finds in a gothic tale when Tom Hiddleston and Jessica Chastain, playing siblings, arrive from England to disturb Wasikowskain upstate New York.  Hiddleston is best known for plaing Loki in the Marvel franchises, but he got that gig in part because he has the acting chops to match Chastain and Wasikowska (who is no stranger to gothis, having starred in the recent Jane Eyre, though you may know her as Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland). Though the big scares are few, del Toro remains a powerful visual stylist (see everything from Pan's Labyrinth to Pacific Rim), and he constantly gives the audience interesting and occasionally stunning images in this film. The acting and the visuals carried Crimson Peak for me; just don't expect to be on the edge of your seat.

LAMAR ODOM's condition has been improving, but he still remains in ICU after waking up from his four-day coma on Friday.
