HENRY ROLLINS: MAYBE YOU DON'T NEED TO REHEARSE FIRST, BUT I DO (LA Weekly)
Before I had joined the band, I worked my minimum-wage job, often overtime, and went to practice for the band I was in and managed to keep it all together. I thought I was a pretty hardworking person and was proud of my ability to stick with it. Then I joined Black Flag and got a lesson in what hard work was all about.
22 Ordinary Words With Terrifying Origins (Cracked)
Language is weird. The words we use today meant something completely different centuries ago. Shit, the things we say today probably had a different meaning five years ago. You just never know when a word is going to switch meaning on you.
"You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" is a song written by Phil Spector, Barry Mann, and Cynthia Weil. The original 1964 recording by the Righteous Brothers, also produced by Spector, became a number-one hit single in the United States and the United Kingdom the following year.
In 1999, the performing-rights organization Broadcast Music, Inc. (BMI) ranked the song as having had more radio and television play in the United States than any other song during the 20th century Additionally, the song was chosen as one of the Songs of the Century by RIAA and ranked #34 on the list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time by Rolling Stone. In 2015, the single was inducted into the National Recording Registry by the Library of Congress for being "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant"

"You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers.
Off the top of my head, I'm going to guess
...but I see after a little research, that instead, its
and by the way...

You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'
You've Lost that Loving Feeling. Happy Birthday, Marty!!
Google, and hence I, suck at these song questions.
'You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling'?
Loveless Lois Of Oregon responded:
My two older sisters LOVED the Righteous Brothers so I got to hear "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" many, many times as a kid, which led me to believe that all relationships were doomed to eventual breakups. If only they'd recorded a follow-up song: "Never Mind, Come Here, I'm Horny Again", or "You're No More Of An Asshole Than Anybody Else", the divorce rate in this country might have been lower.
First, Happy Anniversary! 14 years' commitment to an virtual audiences no small feat; as a consumer (and occasional contributor) I'm impressed and grateful. Your page is my go-to when I open my laptop in the morning.
As for the question: The song is "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling" by the Righteous Brothers. That song, along with "Windy" by the Association, and most Motown songs, were the pop-music soundtrack to my childhood. I remember the lyrics even if I don't remember what I had for lunch 2 days ago. #oldpeopleproblems

Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele will end their Key & Peele run on Comedy Central with the wrap of its fifth and current season, Comedy Central confirmed Saturday.
Peele tweeted Saturday morning "Don't miss the last 8 episodes!" in reference to the ending of the current season.
Key and Peele co-created and star in the Comedy Central show, which debuted in 2012.
Comedy Central announced in March 2014 that the network is teaming with the pair and creating an animated spinoff based on their Critiquer's Corner "Vandaveon & Mike" characters. The animated program will feature the characters as 12-year-old hall monitors navigating their way through junior high.
Have you ever toked up? Sparked a spliff? Smoked weed? If you have, you're not alone - 44 percent of all Americans surveyed in a new Gallup poll say they've tried marijuana.
Gallup has been asking Americans about their pot-smoking habits since 1969, when only 4 percent of Americans admitted to having tried marijuana. Clearly, times have changed. For one thing, marijuana is now legal to use recreationally in four states (Colorado, Alaska, Washington and Oregon), plus the District of Columbia.
Americans' willingness to answer "yes" when asked about trying cannabis has steadily increased over the past 50 or so years, according to Gallup research.
In 2013, 38 percent of those surveyed in a similar poll said they had smoked pot at least once, which means that the total number of affirmative answers to this question jumped by 6 percentage points in just two years. However, the researchers who conducted the poll aren't sure if all of these "yes" answers correspond to an actual increase in the percentage of people who have tried pot or an increase in the percentage of people who are willing to admit that they've done so.
For decades, forest rangers in wooden towers across the West scanned the horizon with binoculars for smoke that could signal the start of a wildfire.
Now, scientists in Nevada and California are helping federal land managers develop technology to expand a network of high-definition cameras to do the job, including one in northern Nevada that recently captured a blaze in real-time more than 100 miles away in Oregon.
The latest project led by the Nevada Seismology Laboratory began two years ago at Lake Tahoe in conjunction with the Forest Service and other local agencies. In recent weeks, the Bureau of Land Management has mounted four cameras on remote mountain peaks stretching from central to northeast Nevada about 100 miles from the Utah line.
The goal is to detect fires faster, especially in unpopulated areas where they can burn several hours or even days before anyone reports them. The cameras with pan-tilt-zoom capability provide a 360-panoramic view with infrared night vision and specialized software to track smoke.

Boice finally won the contest after trying for 15 years, beating out 121 other entrants following two preliminary rounds, a semi-final and two final rounds. The competition was a facet of the island's annual Hemingway Days festival that ends Sunday, July 26. Planting a playful snook on Boice is Wally Cox, left, the 2014 winner.

Don't get into a pissing match with walls in San Francisco.
The city's Public Works agency is testing a pee-repellant paint on walls in areas that have been saturated with urine. Anyone urinating on the specially treated walls will get the spray splashed back onto them.
San Francisco's director of public works, Mohammed Nuru - whose Twitter handle is @MrCleanSF - got the idea when he read on social media about the use of the paint in Hamburg, Germany's nightclub district to stop beer drinkers from relieving themselves in the street.
The paint, called Ultra-Ever Dry, is sold by Ultratech International Inc and is billed as a superhydrophobic coating that will repel most liquids.
"The urine will bounce back on the guys pants and shoes. The idea is they will think twice next time about urinating in public," said Rachel Gordon, a Public Works Department spokeswoman. She said the super-hard coating made the "bounce back" effect much stronger than when peeing on a regular wall.
US rapper Snoop Dogg was briefly arrested by Swedish police on suspicion of using illegal drugs, police sources said Sunday.
"Police carrying out roadside controls noticed that Snoop Dogg (whose car was pulled over) seemed to be under the influence of narcotics. He was arrested and taken to the police station to take a urine test," said Daniel Nilsson, a police spokesman for the central Uppsala region.
"The incident lasted several minutes. Once the test was carried out he left," Nilsson added of the brief arrest which took place after the celebrity rapper gave a concert in the area on Saturday night.
Snoop Dogg reacted by vowing that he would not return to Sweden.

Two animal-rights activists have been charged with terrorizing the fur industry during cross-country road trips in which they released about 5,740 mink from farms, and vandalized the homes and businesses of industry members, the FBI said Friday.
The FBI's Joint Terrorism Task Force arrested Joseph Brian Buddenberg, 31, and Nicole Juanita Kissane, 28, both of Oakland, California, and federal prosecutors charged them with conspiracy to violate the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act.
A federal grand jury indictment unsealed Friday said the two caused hundreds of thousands of dollars in damages during 40,000 miles of cross-country trips over the summer and into the fall of 2013.
Buddenberg and Kissane were under house arrest with electronic monitoring until a scheduled court date Tuesday. Efforts to reach them Saturday were unsuccessful. It was not clear whether either has hired an attorney.
They allegedly slashed vehicles' tires, glued businesses' locks or smashed windows, vandalizing property in San Diego, Spring Valley and La Mesa, California. They are also charged with vandalizing and attempting to flood the Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, home of an employee of the North American Fur Auctions.

A judge has ruled that control of a landmark project on Alzheimer's disease belongs to the University of California, San Diego - handing the school a major victory in its lawsuit against the University of Southern California.
UC San Diego sued after Alzheimer's researcher Dr. Paul Aisen and other employees defected to USC last month. The lawsuit alleges USC, Aisen and other defendants conspired to illegally transfer the Alzheimer's Disease Cooperative Study to the Los Angeles-based university.
Superior Court Judge Judith Hayes on Friday did not immediately decide on UC San Diego's request for monetary damages, the Los Angeles Times reported.
Aisen resigned in June from UC San Diego, where he had overseen the study since 2007, to become founding director of an Alzheimer's institute that USC is establishing.
In recent weeks, the two sides have argued about who owns the database for the $100 million nationwide project.

"Ant-Man" crept past new opener "Pixels" to claim the top spot at the box office this weekend by an ant-sized margin. The Disney and Marvel superhero pic brought in $24.8 million over the weekend, bringing its domestic total to $106.1 million according to Rentrak estimates Sunday.
"Pixels," meanwhile, just barely missed first place with a $24 million debut. While studios always hope for the bragging rights of a No. 1 debut, the real issue here is whether or not the Adam Sandler end of the world comedy will make up its $88 million production budget.
Holdovers "Minions" and "Trainwreck" took the third and fourth spots with $22.1 million and $17.3 million, respectively.
Meanwhile, the R-rated boxing drama "Southpaw" surpassed expectations and landed a place in the top five with its $16.5 million opening.
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. "Ant-Man," $24.8 million ($35.4 million international).
2. "Pixels," $24 million ($21.4 million international).
3. "Minions," $22.1 million ($44 million international).
4. "Trainwreck," $17.3 million ($220,000 international).
5. "Southpaw," $16.5 million ($3.5 million international).
6. "Paper Towns," $12.5 million ($8 million international).
7. "Inside Out," $7.4 million ($28.3 million international).
8. "Jurassic World," $6.9 million (47.6 million international).
9. "Mr. Holmes," $2.8 million.
10. "Terminator Genisys," $2.4 million ($10.7 million international).
