Katherine Rundell: Ferrets can be gods (London Review of Books)
One hundred years ago, a soldier named Hector Hugh Munro was shot in the head as he crossed no-man's-land. The night had been dark. Some of the soldiers accompanying him had lit up when they stopped to rest, and the glowing cigarettes attracted a German sniper's attention. His last words were reported to be: 'Put that bloody cigarette out!' The soldier was perhaps the wittiest writer Britain had; his other name was Saki.

Kelly Stone: 5 Gruesome 'Game Of Thrones' Scenes That Happened In Real Life (Cracked)
Game Of Thrones is a show about horrible things happening to good people (and sometimes also their dogs). But here's the thing: Even at its throat-gushing, skin-flaying, so-much-raping worst, Game Of Thrones can't hold a candle to the true events it borrows from. Because what's actually dark and full of terrors is the average history book. As evidenced by ...

Jeanine Basinger: "Ingrid Bergman: In Her Own Words: A Full Picture of a Life" (Criterion)
Bergman's father, the only parent she ever knew, was a photographer. As a result, no motion picture star has a more complete record of how he or she looked from birth onward than Bergman. Her father photographed her constantly, and it's not hard to trace a line from her memory of him, camera in hand, to Bergman's warm and confident appearance in front of the motion picture camera. For her, a camera was always a loving presence, a thing to trust.

Trivia Question from Yesterday

The original title for this TV series was Ian Fleming's Solo. What was the name changed to when it aired on NBC?

       The Man From U.N.C.L.E.                                                      Source

The Man from U.N.C.L.E. is an American television series broadcast on NBC. It follows secret agents, played by Robert Vaughn and David McCallum, who work for a secret international counter espionage and law enforcement agency called U.N.C.L.E. Originally, co-creator Sam Rolfe wanted to leave the meaning of U.N.C.L.E. ambiguous so it could refer to either "Uncle Sam" or the United Nations. Concerns by the Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer (MGM) legal department about using "U.N." for commercial purposes resulted in the producers' clarification that U.N.C.L.E. was an acronym for the United Network Command for Law and Enforcement. Each episode had an "acknowledgement" to the U.N.C.L.E. in the end titles.

Ian Fleming contributed to the concepts after being approached by the show's co-creator, Norman Felton. The book The James Bond Films says Fleming proposed two characters, Napoleon Solo and April Dancer (The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.). The original name was Ian Fleming's Solo. Robert Towne, Sherman Yellen, and Harlan Ellison wrote scripts for the series.        Source

Calls Trump 'Totalitarian Opportunist'

Mikhail Baryshnikov

Legendary Russian-American dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov has denouncedDonald Trump as a "totalitarian opportunist,' saying the Republican presidential candidate's speeches remind him of his years in the Soviet Union.

Baryshnikov, 68, who defected to the West in 1974, made his views known in a video released on Wednesday in which he threw his support behind Democratic White House hopeful Hillary Clinton.

"Today, as a citizen of the United States, for the first time, I'm hearing rhetoric that reminds me of the Soviet Union of my youth, where it was a crime, and continues to be, a crime to be different," Baryshnikov said.

"Take it from one who knows. Hundreds of thousands of people like me have fled from countries led by dangerous totalitarian opportunists like Donald Trump," he added.

You can watch the video here.

Play Final Concert

The Tragically Hip

A delirious sold-out crowd and countless Canadians on live TV watched the final concert by rock band The Tragically Hip, whose lead singer and songwriter Gord Downie has been diagnosed with terminal brain cancer.

The band, an indelible part of Canada's national identity with songs about hockey, small towns and Canadian literature, ended its 15-show "Man Machine Poem" tour Saturday night in its hometown of Kingston, Ontario.

Thousands of fans - including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau - watched The Hip's final show at the Rogers K-Rock Centre, the city where the band began in the early 1980s. The concert was also broadcast live on national TV.

While The Hip became one of Canada's most beloved rock bands, lasting success in the U.S. was elusive - outside of border cities like Buffalo, N.Y., where viewing parties of the concert's Canadian broadcast were held.

Despite being diagnosed with glioblastoma, the most aggressive cancerous brain tumor, in December, an energetic Downie was in fine form as he and his bandmates played an epic 30-song set loaded with hits and punctuated by three encores.

It's Rare

Voting Fraud

Donald Trump's (R-Pendejo) newest campaign ad begins with a warning: "In Hillary Clinton's America, the system stays rigged against Americans."

The commercial, which aired Friday as part of his $5 million swing state ad buy, harkens back to a claim Trump has been hammering for weeks - that the general election is rigged against him. The questionable claim looks to mobilize Republicans, with the all-important start of early voting in some states just weeks away.

The presidential nominee has voiced strong support for North Carolina's stringent voter ID law - struck down as discriminatory, but to be appealed - saying without it, voters will cast ballots "15 times" for Democrat Hillary Clinton. He also launched a new effort on his website last week seeking volunteers to root out fraud at the polls.

While fraud can occur, the number of cases is very small and the type that voter IDs are designed to prevent - voter impersonation at the ballot box - is virtually non-existent.

News21, a reporting project affiliated with Arizona State University, in 2012 found 2,068 cases of election fraud nationwide since 2000. Of those, just 10 involved voter impersonation - or one out of every 15 million prospective voters. More common was absentee mail-in ballot fraud, with 491 cases. None affected the outcome of an election.

2nd Amendment Restaurant


A Utah restaurant known for kilt-clad servers who openly carry firearms will have to keep them under wraps starting this week.

The staff at Sea Bears Ogden Fish House can only carry concealed weapons now that the eatery has relocated to the city's historic Union Station.

Officials with the Union Station Foundation are not allowing open carry of firearms, the Standard-Examiner of Ogden reported. Initially, the contract that foundation executive Elizabeth Sutton negotiated with Sea Bears permitted open-carry but with conditions. They included owners and wait staff with firearms had to have undergone safety classes and background checks. Also, weapons had to be in holsters and guns could not be longer than 12 inches. All weapons could not be permitted outside of the restaurant in other parts of Union Station.

The Union Station Foundation, however, received complaints that Sea Bears would retain its open-carry policy. As a result, Sutton exercised a provision that Union Station could ban open-carry altogether if the subject became an issue.

"In this day and age, to see somebody carrying in public, you don't know right away if it's friendly or scary," Sutton said. "So, to make everyone feel safe, we felt that open-carry does not meet our mission and goal."

End Of Power Struggle


Media giant Viacom announced a formal agreement Saturday in its nasty corporate power struggle, under which mogul Sumner Redstone will remain atop his empire and chief executive Philippe Dauman leaves the company.

Under terms of the deal, Dauman will also end his legal battles against Redstone and his daughter, Shari.

The agreement, which was presented Friday in an internal memo, settles all disputes between parties and "all lawsuits among them will be terminated," a statement by Viacom said.

Dauman will "resign immediately as president and chief executive officer" and be replaced by chief operating officer Tom Dooley until September 30, with the board to decide his permanent successor.

Under the agreement Dauman will remain as non-executive chairman of the board through September 13, giving him a chance to pitch his plan to sell a minority stake of Paramount Pictures, which is controlled by Viacom.

Sheriff Faces Toughest Race Ever


The longtime sheriff of the metropolitan Phoenix area is facing his toughest political race ever to try to keep his job, with top aides under investigation for misconduct and the lawman himself facing possible criminal charges for defying an order to put an end to traffic stop patrols targeting people in the country illegally.

Joe Arpaio (R-Pink Panties) is now 84 but says he's not ready for retirement, insisting his ties with Maricopa County voters who elected him six consecutive times will overcome a cascade of negative publicity from his legal troubles and give him a win against two retired law enforcement challengers and a fourth candidate in an Aug. 30 Republican primary.

He has raised nearly $10 million in campaign cash aimed at helping him keep his grip over law enforcement one of the most populous counties in the country, much of it from people living outside Arizona.

Arpaio became nationally famous and infamous for his heavy-handed immigration crackdowns and for jailing prisoners in a tent city surrounded by barbed wire and issuing them pink underwear.

Two retired police officers who are among Arpaio's Republican challengers call him an egoistic media monger and promise to bring more professionalism and less self-promotion to the job.

Yearlong Mars Simulation Nears End

Mauna Loa

Six scientists are close to wrapping up a year of near isolation in a Mars simulation on a Hawaii mountain.

The scientists are housed in a dome on Mauna Loa and can go outside only in spacesuits, the Hawaii Tribune-Herald reported (

They manage limited resources while conducting research and working to avoid personal conflicts.

Communication is delayed the 20 minutes, the length it would take to relay messages from Mars.

Kim Binsted, principal investigator for the Hawaii Space Exploration Analog and Simulation, said this simulation is the second-longest of its kind after a mission that lasted 520 days in Russia.

The Biggest Bets in History ~ Kuriositas


Gay Police Chief Makes Historic Run

South Carolina

A small town police chief in staunchly conservative South Carolina is trying to make history by becoming the first female sheriff in the state. And the first openly gay one, too.

Crystal Moore knows the November election will be tough, but she has beaten the odds before. Just two years ago, residents in Latta (population 1,400) rallied around Moore after the mayor fired her. He was later caught on a recording ranting that he would rather have a drunk watch a child than a lesbian.

When the tape surfaced, residents voted in a special election to strip the mayor of his power and the Town Council rehired Moore. A few months later, gay marriage was legalized, and Moore married her longtime partner. They now have a 7-month-old daughter.

Now Moore is running for sheriff in Dillon County, a former tobacco hub of 31,000, probably best known for its South of the Border rest stop - a Mexican-themed collection of restaurants and gas stations - on Interstate 95 near the North Carolina state line.

Weekend Box Office

'Suicide Squad'

A big-budget remake of "Ben-Hur" was trampled under a herd of holdovers and new releases at the box office, the latest casualty in a bruising summer for Hollywood.

The Paramount Pictures release, which cost about $100 million to make, debuted with just $11.4 million, according to studio estimates Sunday. That makes it one of the season's more pricy flops, albeit one that never had anything like the ambition of 1959's Charlton Heston epic.

Instead, Warner Bros.'s much-maligned DC Comics supervillain team-up film "Suicide Squad" held the top spot for the third straight week with an estimated $20.7 million over its third weekend. It has now made $262.3 million domestically (fourth best for the summer) despite steep declines and poor reaction from critics and fans alike.

Seth Rogen's foul-mouthed food animated comedy "Sausage Party" continued to do well for Sony Pictures. In its second weekend, it took in $15.3 million, good enough for second place, and bringing its two-week total to $65.3 million.

Two offbeat debuts slid in behind "Suicide Squad" and "Sausage Party": the Iraq War comedy "War Dogs," with Miles Teller and Jonah Hill; and the stop-motion animated "Kubo and the Two Strings" from Focus Features and Laika 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. "Suicide Squad," $20.7 million ($38 million international).
    2. "Sausage Party," $15.3 million ($2.1 million international).
    3. "War Dogs," $14.3 million ($6.5 million international).
    4. "Kubo and the Two Strings," $12.6 million ($900,000 international).
    5. "Ben-Hur," $11.4 million ($10.7 million international).
    6. "Pete's Dragon," $11.3 million ($5.7 million international).
    7. "Bad Moms," $8.1 million ($3.9 million international).
    8. "Jason Bourne," $8 million ($10.7 million international).
    9. "The Secret Life of Pets," $5.8 million ($45 million international).
   10. "Florence Foster Jenkins," $4.3 million.

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.
