Henry Rollins: Why Record Store Day Rules Now More Than Ever (LA Weekly)
Jan van Dorsten, who for almost 30 years has owned and operated one of the greatest record stores anywhere, Record Palace at 33 Weteringschans in Amsterdam, always remembers me, and I have never been able to leave his place without amazing records. Same thing at Juke Box at 165 Anspach in Brussels. You walk in, the owner says hello, asks if you want some tea, and all is well in the world. How could any city be without places like this?
Anonymous, Evan V. Symon: "I'm Paid To Play World Of Warcraft All Day (And It Sucks)" (Cracked)
"Gold farmer" sounds like an occupation straight out of a medieval fever dream -- an alchemist with a green thumb, toiling in the fields and hoping for a healthy doubloon harvest come autumn. But the reality is far less glamorous. It involves laboring in the landscape of massively multiplayer online games like World Of Warcraft, banking virtual gold, and then selling it for real-world currency.

As Charlie Chaplin finished out his long life on his bucolic Swiss manor, the former silent film star worried about drifting into oblivion, his connoisseurs say.
Little chance of that. The legacy of the Hollywood legend behind "The Dictator" and "Modern Times" lives on today in the minds of stars like Johnny Depp and Robert Downey Jr., in Broadway plays and in the general cultural consciousness. But he never had bricks-and-mortar museum honoring his life and achievements.
That changes Sunday with the public opening of "Chaplin's World," a multimillion-dollar project in the Swiss village of Corsier-sur-Vevey. Its director-general says the museum is the first of its kind in the world to honor Chaplin, and has added value because it's at a place he called home for years.
The "Manoir de Ban" is where Chaplin lived his last 25 years raising children, writing music and movie scripts, and contemplating his legacy far from the glare of the Hollywood spotlight. Visitors can see his trademark bowler hat and cane, a replica studio, black-and-white photographs from his career, and the bedroom where he died at age 88 in 1977.
Actor-comedian Tracy Morgan performed a show near the site of a New Jersey car crash two years ago in which he was nearly killed for an audience that included medical staff who treated him, People magazine said on Sunday.
The Saturday performance at the State Theater in New Brunswick was attended by doctors, first responders and nurses who took care of Morgan at the Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital after his accident in June 2014.
"These people are heroes and I love them all from the bottom of my heart," he told People. "To be standing on stage with the people that saved my life in the audience was an overwhelming experience."
"I will never fully be able to thank the doctors, nurses, first responders and everyone else that got me back on that stage enough," added Morgan, 47, who donated proceeds from the sold-out show to the hospital.

The wedding rings were made of pasta, the ceremony was held on a pirate boat, and when it came time for the kiss, the bride and groom slurped up either end of a noodle until their lips met.
New Zealand on Saturday hosted the world's first Pastafarian wedding, conducted by the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. The group, which began in the U.S. as a protest against religion encroaching into public schools, has gained legitimacy in New Zealand, where authorities recently decided it can officiate weddings.
Saturday's ceremony was all about having fun. The guests came dressed as pirates and shouted plenty of hearty "Aaarrrhs." The groom, Toby Ricketts, vowed to always add salt before boiling his pasta, while bride Marianna Fenn donned a colander on her head.
The church claims that global warming is caused by pirates vanishing from the high seas, and that there is a beer volcano in heaven.
"The Flying Spaghetti Monster created the world. We know that," said marriage celebrant Karen Martyn, aka the Ministeroni. "We weren't around then and we didn't see it, but no other religion was around to see it either, and our deity is as plausible as any other."
The architect of the progressive movement known as "Moral Monday" said he was removed from an American Airlines flight after he responded to a passenger who made disparaging remarks.
The Rev. William Barber said in a statement he was removed Friday from a flight from Washington Reagan to Raleigh-Durham.
A nearby passenger said loudly that he had problems with "those people" and criticized Barber's need to purchase two airline seats for himself, said Barber, who is also president of the state chapter of the NAACP.
Before the crew gave safety instructions, he said he stood up and turned around to respond. An arthritic condition prevented him from turning around in his seat to address the other passenger, Barber said.
A crew member apparently called police, who came on the plane and asked Barber to leave, he said.
In this March 15, 2016 photo, Amani Ayad hangs all her Ebertfest passes around a statue of the late film critic outside the Virginia Theatre in Champaign, Ill. Ayad has been a hostess for Roger Ebert's Film Festival guests every year since 2003. She and the more than dozen other hosts pick up their guests and take them back to the airport and to and from their hotel and to festival events. She ferried around a festival guest in 2014 whom she had never heard of before. Two years later Ayad would see the actress, Brie Larson, pick up the Academy Award for best actress for portraying a captive mother in "Room."

Trailblazers for the U.S. women's national team can't believe their successors are still having the same debate over equal pay and treatment.
Michelle Akers and Julie Foudy, U.S. national team players on the 1991 and 1999 World Cup-winning teams, were among the women who drew attention to the issue two decades ago - when a group of players first took a stand over Olympic bonuses.
"It's so frustrating, and it's surprising. Now? Still? It's been so many years and we've had so much success and there have been so many changes," said Akers, who retired in 2000. "But the stance is a constant: 'Look, you guys are lucky to play. You guys should be grateful to play.'"
The filing points out the disparity in the pay structure for the men's and women's teams. The top female players are paid a salary of about $72,000 a year by U.S. Soccer to play in a minimum of 20 exhibitions per year. They are awarded bonuses only if they win those games, with the potential to earn $99,000, the complaint said.
Conversely, the men are paid a minimum of $5,000 for each match. Compensation varies with the level of opponent, based on FIFA ranking, but male players can earn up to $263,320 if they win all of their games.

As temperatures warm up next month in northeastern United States, billions of cicadas are expected to emerge from the ground as part of their 17-year cycle.
Residents in parts of Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia and West Virginia will be swarmed by sights and mating sounds of the red-eyed bugs.
The cicadas were born in 1999 and have spent over a decade and a half underground, Cicada Mania reports. The 17-year group are made up of three different species and as a whole are referred to as Brood V.
Once young cicadas hatch from their eggs, they dig to find plant roots to feed on. Underground, the insects are quite active by tunneling and feeding. They spend several early life stages buried before surfacing as adults.
The bugs are not expected to rise until the soil hits about 64°F. Often times a warm rain can trigger the emergence. Above ground, the cicadas will mate and then die after a month or so.
The Walt Disney Co.'s "The Jungle Book" opened with $103.6 million in North America, making it one of the biggest April debuts ever at the box office and continuing the studio's streak of unearthing live-action riches buried in its animated classics.
Jon Favreau's update of Disney's 1967 animated version of Rudyard Kipling's book tells the tale of Mowgli with computer-generated imagery and big-screen bombast. A sizable 42 percent of the film's domestic sales came from 3-D and premium-format screens.
Opening in second place was Ice Cube's "Barbershop: The Next Cut" with $20.2 million. The fourth film in the comedy series (which included the 2005 spinoff "Beauty Shop") failed to match the $24.2 million debut of the previous "Barber Shop 2: Back in Business" in 2004, but it still supplied a solid opening for New Line and MGM.
The Kevin Costner action thriller "Criminal," however, opened with a mere $5.9 million for Lionsgate. It cost around $30 million to make.
Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to comScore. Where available, the latest international numbers for Friday through Sunday are also included. Final domestic figures will be released Monday.
1. "The Jungle Book," $103.6 million ($136.1 million international).
2. "Barbershop: The Next Cut," $20.2 million.
3. "The Boss," $10.2 million ($2.5 million international).
4. "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," $9 million ($15.1 million international).
5. "Zootopia," $8.2 million ($10.8 million international).
6. "Criminal," $5.9 million ($2 million international).
7. "My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2," $3.3 million. ($1.3 million international).
8. "Miracles From Heaven," $1.9 million.
9. "God's Not Dead 2," $1.7 million.
10. "Eye in the Sky," $1.6 million ($1.9 million international).
A lone bison is blanketed by snow as the animal stands at the buffalo overlook along Interstate 70 as a severe spring storm packing high winds and heavy, wet snow sweeps over the intermountain West Saturday, April 16, 2016, near Evergreen, Colo. While the storm is starting later than predicted, forecasters are expecting driving snow to pummel the region Saturday night into Sunday, which has forced the cancellation of hundreds flights out of Denver's airport.
