SHE & HIM played their take on Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell on You" on Conan, and "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" with Conan. Both clips at P-Fork.

R.E.M.: Stream "Merry Christmas (Baby, Please Come Home)" and three instrumental tracks from their upcoming LP.

MENOMENA stopped by the World cafe for a chat and mini-set.

DAWN LANDES did three free songs for Daytrotter. Recommended.

THE VEILS debut three advance tracks via Drowned In Sound.

THE TOP 40 METAL ALBUMS of 2010, according to Decibel. Not my bag, but it may appeal to Pate bassist Mike Kelly.

VINYL: Don't call it a comeback.

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader tops the chart with 24.5 million -- but that's a lot less than either The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe or Prince Caspian.  Overseas sales will likely ensure a decent profit on this Narnias 150 million production budget, but the franchise may be over.  The Tourist debuted in second with 17 million, but with Depp and Jolie starring, this has to be considered a big ouch against a 100 million budget.  Again, international sales will save this from being a big loss, but it's a giant waste of star power. Tangled - which crossed the 100 million mark before the weekend - had a decent hold in the third slot with 14.6 million; it should continue to hold well through the end of the year, unless Yogi Bear turns out better than I suspect. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 comes in at No. 4 with 8.5 million, suffering a 50 drop, but still marginally ahead of Goblet of Fire, as the franchise goes.  No tears, as Harry has pulled in 778 million worldwide so far on a reported 200 million budget.  Unstoppable hangs on to round out the Top Five with 3.8 million; its 74.2 million domestic total to date is not as strong as The Book of Eli, but still one of Denzel's stronger showings.  Below the fold, Black Swan comes in sixth with 3.3 million on a tiny 94 screens.

MILEY CYRUS celebrated her 18th birthday by smoking the legal hallucinogen salvia with a bong. Billy Ray Cyrus is "so sad." It may end up in a Salvia ban.

NICOLE RICHIE: There was frantic negotiating to land a 100K exclusive magazine deal for her wedding pics ahead of the big ceremony with Joel Madden Saturday.

LIZ HURLEY's three-year marriage to Arun Nayar is on the rocks.

KRISTEN STEWART & ROBERT PATTINSON are making no secret of their real-life romance while shooting the latest Twilight installment.

NEVE CAMPBELL dating the Old Spice guy?

WINONA RYDER, back on screens in Black Swan (and soon The Dilemma) talks to Elle about acting and not using the Internet.

THE HASSELHOFFS get cancelled after two episodes. Ouch.

THOR has a trailer online.

THE 10 WORST CHRISTMAS MOVIES, according to Film School Rejects.

THE TOP FILMS of 2010, according to the BFI poll and The Observer's Philip French.

GEN. DAVID PETRAEUS was Barbara Walters's Most Fascinating Person of 2010.

TERROR in SWEDEN: Two blasts rocked the center of Stockholm Saturday night in what Sweden's foreign minister called "a terrorist attack" that killed one person and wounding two.

IRAN is planning to place medium-range missiles on Venezuelan soil, based on western information sources, according to an article in the German daily, Die Welt.

A CAMEL falls onto audience members in the pews of a sanctuary Christmas performance.

RUDY the REINDEER is safe and sound after escaping from a live nativity scene at a central Florida church.  Was Santa bringing the frankinsense? Or was Rudy feeling upstaged by the camel?

CAT rescued from a tree. A hearty perennial.

MUTANT MAN-MONSTER... or a hoax?
