The two shows were classic Berlin experiences. On the first night, a large man punched me out - for what reason, I don't know. Then, at load-out, a man picked up one of Greg Ginn's Dan Armstrong guitars and ran off with it. To this day, I wonder where it ended up.

Lucy Mangan: Be warned - I really don't give a damn (The Guardian)
I've learned that it's draining to care too much. Best to ration that sort of thing.

Julie Burchill: David Bowie had sex with underage girls. Is that creepy or cool? (Spectator)
I strayed upon the Facebook page of the excellent feminist essayist Louise Pennington, who had already been driven to distraction by grieving trolls. Her crime had been to remind us that David Bowie, in the first flush of global fame, had had quite a lot of sex with underage girls in Los Angeles. In one notorious case, he had helped himself to the virginity of a 13-year-old named Lori Maddox, who went on to act as sperm receptacle/muse to other rock stars. She was part of the so-called 'Baby Groupies' circle.

Julie Burchill: Please spare us the sob signalling over David Bowie (Spectator)
From the word go, the level of sheer asininity of the guest commentators on BBC Breakfast was truly remarkable - surely the saddest legacy a creative person can leave is stupid fans. 'He knew a lot of stuff about a lot of things.' 'The last great PR stunt of his life.'

Peter Crawley: "Culture Shock: When artists are faced with the end, how do they respond?" (Irish Times)
It's tempting to read 'Blackstar' as David Bowie's swansong. But he was already writing his next album.

Scott Stossel: Son of Gonzo (American Scholar)
If Hunter had been less devoted to being a writer, could he have been a better father? Stories I Tell Myself makes that question seem stupid. Juan Thompson, in earnestly expressing his desire to be a different and better father than Hunter-while writing this unsparing yet forgiving and affectionate book-evinces an abundant human decency that makes questions about mere art seem trivial. Juan, as he himself readily concedes, is a lesser writer than his father. But he is, despite his persistent concerns about whether he has lived up to his father's hopes, surely the better man.

Ira Madison III: Every Episode of The X-Files, Ranked From Worst to Best (Vulture)
1. "Clyde Bruckman's Final Repose" (Season 3, Episode 4) The X-Files could be thrilling, scary, heartbreaking, and funny. This episode takes every element that made the series so iconic and throws them all into one heartbreaking installment. A man who can see the future aids Mulder and Scully in stopping the murders of psychics and fortune-tellers. It took Scully years to finally come around on the supernatural, but in that moment where she finds Clyde Bruckman dead, she takes his hand, and you can see it in her eyes that she's finally ready to take this journey into the paranormal with Mulder.

The recent storms knocked about dozen off the tree. The next few dry days I'll get out and finish picking them. But as for other citrus-growing folks: make Limoncello. It's easy and it's good.

Florida Auction


Furnishings from late US president John F. Kennedy's winter retreat in Palm Beach, Florida sold Saturday for some $400,000, an auction house said.

Leslie Hindman Auctioneers sold furniture and decorative arts from the famed "Winter White House" with best-selling items including twin beds and a massage table.

"Popular items include a pair of Venetian style walnut twin beds where the future president slept alongside his brother Joe, and later (first lady) Jackie Kennedy" Hindman said in a statement, adding that the beds sold for $20,000.

JFK as a child vacationed at the mansion, and spent a great deal of time there after being elected president in 1960, holding staff meetings and numerous press conferences.

Feds To End Ultralight-Led Migration

Whooping Cranes

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service said it will stop supporting the use of ultralight aircraft to help young whooping cranes migrate from Wisconsin to Florida each fall.

Officials announced Friday that this season's ultralight-guided flights to the birds' winter home will be the last, the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reported.

Operation Migration, the Canadian-based nonprofit group that has led the migrations for 15 years, has opposed the end of ultralights, saying the program has helped cranes survive. But Fish and Wildlife officials claim the birds haven't been successful in producing chicks and raising them in the wild.

The effort has spent more than $20 million to establish the flock that's distinct from a larger flock of whooping cranes migrating between the Texas Gulf Coast and northern Canada.

The final decision to end the public-private effort was made in Baraboo during a meeting of the Whooping Crane Eastern Partnership, according to Pete Fasbender, a Minnesota-based field office supervisor of the Fish and Wildlife Service.

Gather In Nevada

Cowboy Poets

As troubadours, fiddlers and scribes head to northeast Nevada for a national gathering to celebrate cowboy poetry and culture, the topic of the sometimes tenuous relationship between the Old West and the realities of the New West will be more than campfire conversation.

The 32nd National Cowboy Poetry Gathering opens Monday in Elko, a rural community halfway between Reno and Salt Lake City that is similar in its turbulent history to the place about 200 miles away in Oregon where a national wildlife refuge has been seized by armed men boys protesting federal ownership of land.

The keynote speech will be given Thursday by a world-renowned cultural and environmental historian who thinks government ownership of land can be a good thing, and it may be the only way to save some of the last great wild places where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains.

Dan Flores said he isn't sure what to expect in Elko after talking with event organizers who requested he "leave the politics at the door as you go in."

"They engaged me in a conference call that, as I read it, was kind of a warning about the audience and about what you can say, and what is going to be controversial ," said Flores, who was the chairman of Western History at the University of Montana from 1992 to 2014 and now lives outside Santa Fe, New Mexico. "The truth is, given the politics of modern America, almost everything you say about the West is controversial. I may be occupied by the militia by the end of the event, but I guess we'll find out."

Changes To Adoption Preferences


Democrats in the Arizona Legislature want a law that requires judges to give preferences to married heterosexual couples in adoption stricken from the books.

The legislation introduced in both the Senate and House removes current language giving preferences to a husband and wife over others in adoptions. Backers say the U.S. Supreme Court's decision last year legalizing same-sex marriage bans laws giving preferences to heterosexual couple over gay couples.

Sen. Steve Farley, D-Tucson, also said single parents shouldn't be given second-tier status on adoptions so the proposal completely eliminates preferences for married couples. He said single parents are just as qualified and sometimes more so to be good parents.

He also points to the approximately 19,000 children in state foster care as a reason to change current law.

Offers Admiration For Gov. Snyder


Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush (R-Putz) shared admiration for Gov. Rick Snyder's (R-Environmental Racist) response to the Flint water crisis.

During an interview with Martha Raddatz on ABC's "This Week" program Sunday, Jan. 24, Bush called the water concerns "a tragedy and what we need to have it a 21st century set of rules," according to a show transcript.

When asked if Snyder had any responsibility over the issue, Bush said "Well, he's taken -- he's taken responsibility. And I admire that. He's not saying that it's someone else's fault. He's rolling up his sleeves and trying to -- trying to deal with this."

Questioned on whether or not Snyder should resign, Bush said "No, he needs to do what he's doing, which is to accept responsibility and begin to solve the problem."

Bush went on to say Snyder has been "a great governor for Michigan," according to the transcript.

Withheld Nuclear Mishap From Pentagon

Air Force

In the spring of 2014, as a team of experts was examining what ailed the U.S. nuclear force, the Air Force withheld from them the fact that it was simultaneously investigating damage to a nuclear-armed missile in its launch silo caused by three airmen.

The accident happened May 17, 2014, at an underground launch silo containing a Minuteman 3 intercontinental ballistic missile, or ICBM. The silo, designated Juliet-07, is situated among wheat fields and wind turbines about 9 miles west of Peetz, Colorado. It is controlled by launch officers of the 320th Missile Squadron and administered by the 90th Missile Wing at F.E. Warren Air Force Base at Cheyenne, Wyoming.

The Air Force said that while three airmen were troubleshooting the missile, a "mishap" occurred, causing $1.8 million in damage to the missile. The service declined to explain the nature of the mishap, such as whether it caused physical damage, saying the information is too sensitive to be made public.

The three airmen were immediately stripped of their certification to perform nuclear weapons duty. The missile was taken offline and removed from its silo. No one was injured and the Air Force said the accident posed no risk to public safety.

Met Wife In China

Missing Bookseller

A Hong Kong publisher whose disappearance from the city raised fears he was abducted by Chinese officials has met his wife on the mainland and is reportedly "in good spirits", Hong Kong police said Sunday.

Lee Bo was the fifth employee of a Hong Kong publishing house known for producing salacious titles critical of Chinese leaders to have gone missing in recent months.

Three others went missing in mainland China while Gui Minhai, who has Swedish nationality, disappeared in Thailand.

Hong Kong police said early Sunday that Lee, 65, had met his wife Sophie Choi at an unspecified location in China the previous day.

There was no immigration record of Lee having left Hong Kong last month. Activists, local media and even pro-Beijing politicians in the city have expressed concern about the case.

Mask Was Scratched

King Tut

King Tut hasn't been around for a few thousand years, but his power remains: after a botched repair job of the famed pharaoh's beard left scratches on his burial mask, Egyptian prosecutors have ordered eight museum workers to a disciplinary court for "gross negligence."

The 3,300-year old mask, whose beard was accidentally knocked off and hastily glued on with epoxy in 2014, was scratched and damaged during the amateurish repair work, prosecutors said in a Sunday statement, which implicated the then-head of the Egyptian Museum and the chief of the restoration department.

"In an attempt to cover up the damage they inflicted, they used sharp instruments such as scalpels and metal tools to remove traces of adhesive on the mask, causing damage and scratches that remain," it said, citing an investigation. The eight now face fines and disciplinary measures including dismissal.

The mask was put back on display last month after a German-Egyptian team of specialists removed the epoxy and reattached the beard using beeswax, used as an adhesive in antiquity.

Weekend Box Office

'The Revenant'

Weekend movie-going was affected up and down the East Coast by Winter Storm Jonas, which forced theater closures in Washington D.C. and New York, and caused hundreds of theaters to suspend showings. Studio executives said the storm had a major effect on business.

Fittingly, the film that most flourished in the frigid winter weather was 20th Century Fox's Oscar-nominated "Revenant," which took in an estimated $16 million in its third week of wide release. The Alejandro Inarritu-directed thriller, set in the 1820s, is proving to be one of Leonardo DiCaprio's biggest hits with $119.2 million in North America thus far. It was also the top film internationally over the weekend with $33.8 million.

Disney's "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," came in second with $14.3 million in its sixth week of release. "The Force Awakens," with $1.94 billion globally to date, will likely cross $2 billion in the next week.

Last week's No. 1 movie, the Kevin Hart-Ice Cube comedy "Ride Along 2," dropped steeply in its second week, sliding to third with $13 million for Universal.

Those holdovers were trailed by a trio of new releases: "Dirty Grandpa," ''The Boy" and "The 5th Wave," which all earned $10 million to $12 million over the weekend.

Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Rentrak. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.

    1. "The Revenant," $16 million ($33.8 million international).
    2. "Star Wars: The Force Awakens," $14.3 million ($23.3 million international).
    3. "Ride Along 2," $13 million ($6.5 million international).
    4. "Dirty Grandpa," $11.5 million ($2 million international).
    5. "The Boy," $11.3 million ($750,000 international).
    6. "The 5th Wave," $10.7 million ($15.9 million international).
    7. "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi," $9.8 million.
    8. "Daddy's Home," $5.3 million ($5.9 million international).
    9. "Norm of the North," $4.1 million.
   10. "The Big Short," $3.5 million ($10.1 million international).

Do you have something to say?
Anything that increased your blood pressure, or, even better, amused or entertained?

Do you have a great album no one's heard?
How about a favorite TV show, movie, book, play, cartoon, or legal amusement?
A popular artist that just plain pisses you off?
A box set the whole world should own?
Vile, filthy rumors about Republican hypocrites?

Just plain vile, filthy rumors?

In other words, submissions are welcome.
