At last, the reinforcements are arriving. After 11 weekends in a row under $100 million and seven in a row under $65 million, the overall box office will finally start returning to non-disastrous levels this weekend with the first tentpole title in months, Halloween Ends. Unless the Universal film has a huge overperformance, we won’t be getting into the nine digits this weekend, but Halloween Ends should be the top opener since Thor: Love and Thunder over three months ago and it will likely lead the biggest total weekend box office since Bullet Train opened in the first weekend of August (that weekend had an overall cume of $92.1 million, a number that is possible but not especially likely this weekend). Next weekend, the combination of the Dwayne Johnson-starring DCEU film Black Adam and the George Clooney and Julia Roberts starring rom-com Ticket to Paradise will be enough to push the box office past the $100 million mark for the first time since July.

There's a new trend on youtube where people who have never heard of older songs, listen and react to them live on video. As a long time music fan and even dealer, I watch them off and on to see how they react to certain songs and how they interpret them.

Last night I saw a react to a song by Gary Puckett and the Union Gap called "Young Girl." Now I have heard that song many times on oldies radio and even had the LP once.

I cant imagine someone recording that today without major controversy, but it kind slipped by the morality police in the 60s. I might have just been out of the loop on that one. I did find this article where Puckett addresses the song: Gary Puckett chats about singing ‘Young Girl’ in the age of #metoo

Actor George Clooney says in a BBC interview that America is 'like a battered child' after 'knucklehead' Trump's presidency and says former President can't stand his own supporters in real life.
'It's so funny because he was just this knucklehead, I knew him before he was a president. He was just a guy who was chasing girls. Every time you went out, he'd come over and be like: 'What's the name of that girl?' That's all he was.
Clooney: 'And the idea that there's this whole group of people that, you know, that they think he's the champion of which, he certainly can't stand in real life. He's gonna play this out for a while and we'll see where we go with it as a country. My hope is that we have a little better sense than to do that again, my hope.'......The actions of this president have caused alarm and dismay amongst our allies abroad and given considerable comfort to our enemies. And whose fault is that? Not really his. He didn't create this situation of fear, he merely exploited it - and rather successfully. 'Cassius was right. 'The fault, dear Brutus, is not in our stars, but in ourselves.' Good night, and good luck.'
On a personal note I would add that he especially exploited (and still does) evangelicals and the already non-educated far right wingers (Tea Party , etc) Exploiting people and things for his own purpose is all he knows how to do.

I had an idea that I wanted to write a love story about transcending death. I was 22, and I had a heart arrhythmia, which developed in my late teens. I thought I might not live much longer. A cardiologist said, “It’s not something that’s gonna kill you.” But dying had been on my mind.
So I thought of writing a song about, well, what if one of a couple dies? Is it possible to cross that divide of the mortal coil and reunite somehow? I was writing about characters, but insofar as it related to me personally, it was about me and Sandra. I was thinking about her when I wrote it.

As a person who is Black, it’s weird getting into a genre of music that is considered predominantly white. Though there are roots in Black culture, it can’t be ignored that nowadays the country music industry fits that category.
Britney Spears' longtime manager Larry Rudolph has officially resigned and said that the pop icon wants to retire, according to a report from Deadline.
HEADLINE: Pop superstar (Taylor Swift) advocated for the Equality Act during an acceptance speech and a performance of “You Need to Calm Down.” <<<This is considered breaking news, BTW, by the mainstream press.
Anyone who makes a political or social decision based on the "wisdom" of Taylor Swift shouldn't waste everybody's time voting anyway. It was Martin Luther King who said, “Morality cannot be legislated, but behavior can be regulated. Judicial decrees may not change the heart, but they can restrain the heartless.”
The so-called Equality Act wants to redefine morality and create a newly defined definition of "heartless" people to punish through punitive laws and legislations. (And all the lawyers said "Amen!!"🤔)
True change comes from within; not forced from without. The Equality Act will simply create a new class of criminals. The Constitution already protects citizens equally...it was never intended to offer special protections for people who feel they are offended by anything, something, or everything. If a guy wants to call himself a woman and call it "Gender Identity" that's between him, his conscience and God. I can count on no fingers the number of times I have sought out any such person just so I could discriminate or insult them. In turn, don't make me a criminal for not celebrating or rallying around his decision.
👉The lesson in the Felicity Huffman case is clear...if you can't do the time....get a hit TV series and become famous first...then do the crime. 🙄
