TOMMY RAMONE, a/k/a Tommy Tom Erdelyi, the founding drummer and last surviving original member of the Ramones, the New York City band whose dizzying, short blasts of melody codified the sound of punk rock, died on Friday at his home in Ridgewood, Queens. He was 65. The cause was cancer of the bile duct. After Tommy left the band, he produced the Replacements’ Tim in 1985 and Redd Kross’ Neurotica in 1987. It is hard to overestimate the impact of the Ramones on modern rock, and Tommy's unique beat, as well as his understanding of the Ramones' vision were key to their lasting influence.  Here are the original Ramones, playing the equally legendary CBGBs in October 1977, two weeks before the release of Rocket to Russia, Tommy's final LP with the band. Your setlist includes:  “Blitzkrieg Bop”; “Sheena is a Punk Rocker”; “Beat on the Brat”; “Now I Wanna Sniff Some Glue”; “Rockaway Beach”; “Cretin Hop”; “Oh,Oh, I Love Her So”; and “Today Your Love, Tomorrow the World.”

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Dawn of the Planet of the Apes dominates the box office with 73 million, not only well over its predecessor's 54.8 million opening, but also accounting for over half of the weekend's ticket sales.The simians took in another 30 million overseas, though it avoided countries where the World Cup final would be in conflict.  Transformers: Age of Extinction places a distant second with 16 million, and continues to lag its predecessors, but crosses the 200 million mark domestically, which is roughly what the Apes will likley make in their entire run. The 'bots have also racked up 543 million overseas, 262 of that in China alone. Welcome to the global economy.  Tammy shows with 12.9 million; the film which no one seems to have liked nevertheless is closing in on the 60 million it likely needs to profit.  22 Jump Street takes the fourth slot with 6.7 million and is well in the black with about 172 million domestic against a 50 million production budget.  How to Train Your Dragon 2 rounds out the Top 5 with 5.9 million; this equel has no recouped its production budget domestically, but 350 million worldwide is still short of 435 million it likely needs to profit.

IRAQ: In a possible portent of growing factional conflict, a leading Kurdish minister was removed from Iraq's government, and the Kurdish semi-autonomous government took over two oilfields in the north, officials said Friday. Fighters from the newly established Islamic State ambushed and destroyed an Iraqi armored column in the western province of Anbar. Islamic State fighters also captured several American-made armored personnel carriers.

SYRIA: While the world focuses on the military advances the Islamis State has made in western Iraq, U.S. officials and terrorism experts point across the border to Syria, where the radical Islamist militia has consolidated recent gains and maybe forming a "safe haven" from which terror attacks against Western targets could be launched.
