JACOB BERNSTEIN: Bill Cunningham, Legendary Times Fashion Photographer, Dies at 87 (NY Times)
Bill Cunningham, who turned fashion photography into his own branch of cultural anthropology on the streets of New York, chronicling an era's ever-changing social scene for The New York Times by training his busily observant lens on what people wore - stylishly, flamboyantly or just plain sensibly - died on Saturday in Manhattan. He was 87.

Clive James: 'In many ways, when I was young, I was as dumb as Omar Mateen' (The Guardian)
It might be a waste of time hoping to make the next Omar Mateen tolerant of gay people, or less confused about possibly being gay himself, when he has not yet grasped the much more elementary principle that a fit of pique is not a sufficient excuse for mowing down a hundred strangers.

And you go, 'Actually no, you can't, sorry.' And they look at you like you're the most disgusting thing in the world: how dare you say I can't have a picture? And then you go, 'I don't want to have a picture with you. I don't know you. And you're going to have a picture of me looking shite on your phone. I don't want that. Why is that so hard to understand?'"

Henry Rollins: Notes From the Festival Circuit, Where Bands' Careers Never End (LA Weekly)
In the festival setting, I have become used to hearing bands whose careers never seem to end. The night before, The Who (all two of them) headlined to great approval. It's almost as if festivals are the gateway to dreams of the past, partially realized for an hour or two.

Andy Hermann: You Still Can't Copyright a Riff - and That's a Good Thing (LA Weekly)
So not only is it virtually impossible to prove who originally invented The Riff - it's also difficult, when you see The Riff broken down into its component parts, to care. Once power chords entered the lexicon of the electric guitar, The Riff became as inevitable as the 1-4-5 chord structures of the blues, or the drum patterns of rock. It's practically built into the guitar's very architecture, the way the instrument invites the player's fingers to move up and down the frets.

Trivia Question of the Day

A child prodigy, this American musician, singer, songwriter, record producer, and multi-instrumentalist has received 25 Grammy Awards, the most ever awarded to a male solo artist. What is his stage name?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

The first Grammy Award for Album of the Year was bestowed in 1959. What album won the award?

       The Music from Peter Gunn                                                      Source

The Music from Peter Gunn is a 1959 album by Henry Mancini, RCA Victor LPM/LSP-1956, the soundtrack of the TV series Peter Gunn. It was the first album ever to win the Grammy Award for Album of the Year in 1959.

In his autobiography Did They Mention the Music? Mancini stated: "The "Peter Gunn" title theme actually derives more from rock and roll than from jazz. I used guitar and piano in unison, playing what is known in music as an ostinato, which means obstinate. It was sustained throughout the piece, giving it a sinister effect, with some frightened saxophone sounds and some shouting brass. The piece has one chord throughout and a super-simple top line."

The Music from Peter Gunn was selected by the Library of Congress as a 2010 addition to theNational Recording Registry, which selects recordings annually that are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant".        Source

Alan J was first and correct with:
   The Music from Peter Gunn by Henry Mancini.

Adam answered:
   Henry Mancini's 'The Music From Peter Gunn'.

Jim from CA, retired to ID, wrote:

Marian said:

Deborah responded:
   A little late today; we rode with a friend up to Davis for brunch. The ride back was downright toasty.
  The first record to win the Grammy for Album of the Year was Frank Sinatra, "Come Dance with Me."
  Hope you aren't sweltering, Marty.

Randall replied:
   I'll take a wild stab at it and say
  VOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooo lare!

   Album of the Year 1959 ~ Henry Mancini for 'The Music from Peter Gunn'.

Lois Of The Lugers answered:
   Way back in 1959 I was an adorable toddler with no concept of double entendres, but looking back with the hindsight of over fifty years of cultivating a filthy mind, it is quite obvious that the show about the "Private Dick" named "Peter Gunn" is absolutely spurting out phallic references. What I don't understand is HOW it got past the "censors".

Joe S     said:
   Album of the Year went to The Music from Peter Gunn by Henry Mancini. Meh. That's what I thought in 1959 too.

New Hampshire

A small library in New Hampshire sits at the forefront of global efforts to promote privacy and fight government surveillance - to the consternation of law enforcement.

The Kilton Public Library in Lebanon, a city of 13,000, last year became the nation's first library to use Tor, software that masks the location and identity of internet users, in a pilot project initiated by the Cambridge, Massachusetts-based Library Freedom Project. Users the world over can - and do - have their searches randomly routed through the library.

Computers that have Tor loaded on them bounce internet searches through a random pathway, or series of relays, of other computers equipped with Tor. This network of virtual tunnels masks the location and internet protocol address of the person doing the search.

In a feature that makes Kilton unique among U.S. libraries, it also has a computer with a Tor exit relay, which delivers the internet query to the destination site and becomes identified as the last-known source of the query.

Alison Macrina, founder and director of the Library Freedom Project, said her organization chose Kilton for its pilot project because it had embraced other privacy-enhancing software the project recommended and because she knew the library had the know-how take it to the complicated exit-relay stage.

Crowned World's Ugliest Dog


A tiny little Chihuahua mix named SweePee has been crowned World's Ugliest Dog.

Seventeen years old, blind and decidedly tough to look at, SweePee Rambo swept the annual competition in Petaluma, California.

The fan favorite at Friday's competition, SweePee competed for the honor for two years before finally getting her due.

SweePee's owner, Jason Wurtz of Encino, California, calls the part Chinese Crested, part Chihuahua pooch "a ride or die chick."

Wurtz, who initially gave SweePee to his ex wife as a gift before she gave her back because she's so ugly, $1,500 and a six-foot trophy.

Iconic 'Yellow Cloud' Guitar


The owner of the Indianapolis Colts NFL franchise has purchased one of Prince's iconic guitars at auction.

Jim Irsay snagged the late music legend's "Yellow Cloud" guitar for a reported $137,500 on Saturday.

The instrument was sold at Heritage Auctions in Beverly Hills alongside Elvis, David Bowie and other late stars' memorabilia.

The billionaire also owns instruments once used by Jerry Garcia of Grateful Dead, John Lennon and Ringo Star of The Beatles and singer-songwriter Bob Dylan.

Ancient Cave Art


Centuries have passed since Neolithic artists swirled red and white colour on the cliffs of northern Somalia, painting antelopes, cattle, giraffes and hunters carrying bows and arrows.

Today, the paintings at Laas Geel in the self-declared state of Somaliland retain their fresh brilliance, providing vivid depictions of a pastoralist history dating back some 5,000 years or more.

"These paintings are unique. This style cannot be found anywhere in Africa," said Abdisalam Shabelleh, the site manager from Somaliland's Ministry of Tourism.

Then he points to a corner, where the paint fades and peels off the rocks. "If nothing is done now, in 20 years it could all have disappeared," he added.

The site is in dire need of protection. "We don't have the knowledge, the experience or the financial resources. We need support," Shabelleh said.

Harder To Know Who's Paying

Political Ads

It's getting harder to know who is funding political advertising at the state level as more money becomes anonymous or is filtered from one political action committee to another, a new study finds.

In 2014, the last year in which statewide elections were widespread across the country, only 29 cents of every $1 of independent political spending could be tracked easily to its original individual donor, according to the Brennan Center for Justice at the New York University School of Law. The center found that dark money and what it calls "gray" money are rising even faster in state elections than in federal races.

In places where the costs of elections can be cheaper because word is distributed by direct mail rather than television ads, the spending can have a larger impact.

Dark money comes from nonprofit advocacy groups that spend on political purposes but are not subject to campaign finance disclosures. Its rise is one of the effects of the U.S. Supreme Court's 2010 Citizens United ruling, which removed caps on how much corporations, unions and interest groups can spend on advocacy communications that do not specifically call for the election or defeat of candidates.

That category of spending grew from less than $600,000 in 2006 to nearly $22 million in 2014 in the states the study evaluated.

Fiscal Responsiblity, Republican-Style

North Dakota

North Dakota spent $491,016 in legal costs defending an ill-fated law passed by the state's Republican-led Legislature three years ago that attempted to ban abortions when a fetal heartbeat is detected, records obtained by The Associated Press show.

The sum was finalized this week and includes billing by state-contracted attorneys and expert witnesses, as well as a $245,000 settlement paid in April to lawyers representing the state's lone abortion clinic in Fargo. The figure does not include staff time dedicated from the state Attorney General's office.

House Majority Leader Al Carlson of Fargo and his Republican Senate counterpart, Rich Wardner of Dickinson, defended the final tally on Friday.

"It was worth every cent for those of us who believe in life," Wardner said of the law, which never took effect but would have banned abortions as early as six weeks of pregnancy - before some women know they are pregnant.

Senate Democratic Minority Leader Mac Schneider of Grand Forks called money spent defending the state's abortion measures "a colossal backfire at the height of fiscal irresponsibility."

The 10 Coolest Dead Languages


Rotting Trees Cause Mysterious Holes


Mysterious holes that forced the closure of a massive dune at an Indiana national park after a 6-year-old boy fell into one and nearly died were caused by sand-covered trees that left cavities behind as they decayed over the years, researchers have found.

Fungi on the covered trees formed a sort of cement that allowed the sand to keep its hollowed out shape as the wood decayed and collapsed inward, leaving holes more than 10 feet (3 meters) deep in the dune known as Mount Baldy at the Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, according to a study published in December by Erin Argyilan, who heads Indiana University Northwest's department of geosciences. She said the phenomenon likely explains similar holes found in migrating dunes in Oregon and Michigan.

Although she determined the holes to be more of a nuisance than a hazard, Argyilan said they could present an unseen geological hazard in heavily visited natural places like Mount Baldy. The popular dune has been closed except for small ranger-led tours since the July 2013 rescue of the Illinois boy, who was trapped under sand for more than three hours.

The question facing the National Park Service is whether to keep Mount Baldy closed to the unsupervised public or to find a way to safely reopen it, at least partially.

Newly Expanded

Panama Canal

Panama is preparing to officially open its canal this weekend to far bigger cargo ships after nearly a decade of expansion work aimed at boosting transit revenues and global trade.

On Sunday, a VIP ceremony will be held on the banks of the canal to inaugurate the completion of the works.

President Juan Carlos Varela will unveil the new locks and third shipping lane built into the 102-year-old canal. Foreign dignitaries, including the presidents of Taiwan, Chile and other Central American nations, will be present at the ceremony.

A Chinese-owned Neopanamax-class cargo ship will be the first vessel to officially test the new infrastructure, entering from the Atlantic and exiting into the Pacific a few hours later.

The expansion work began in 2007 and was meant to have been completed in 2014, but it ran well past deadline, and over budget.

Weekend Box Office

"Finding Dory"

The "Finding Dory" tidal wave overwhelmed the sputtering sequel "Independence Day: Resurgence," as the alien-invasion redux was drowned out by the popular Pixar release in North American theaters.

In its second week, "Finding Dory" easily remained on top with an estimated $73.2 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That far surpassed the $41.6 million opening of "Resurgence," which debuted well off the pace of its 1996 original. The first "Independence Day" opened with $50.2 million, or about $77 million in inflation-adjusted dollars.

Of the week's other debuts, the Blake Lively shark thriller "The Shallows" rode a wave of good reviews to a better-than-expected $16.7 million for Sony. Matthew McConaughey's Civil War drama "Free State of Jones," however, disappointed with just $7.7 million for the upstart studio STX Entertainment.

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 three-day domestic figures will be released Monday.

    1. "Finding Dory," $73.2 million ($37 million).
    2. "Independence Day: Resurgence," $41.6 million ($102 million international).
    3. "Central Intelligence," $18.4 million ($4.7 million international).
    4. "The Shallows," $16.7 million.
    5. "Free State of Jones," $7.8 million.
    6. "The Conjuring 2," $7.7 million ($21 million international).
    7. "Now You See Me 2," $5.7 million ($50.9 million international).
    8. "X-Men: Apocalypse," $2.5 million ($3.6 million international).
    9. "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Out of the Shadows," $2.4 million ($3.6 million international).
   10. "Warcraft," $2.1 million ($9.4 million international).
