Henry Rollins: There Is No American Equivalent to South Africa's Grinding Poverty (LA Weekly)
Last night, after the show, I opened the window of my hotel room to take in the night air, which had a smell that has become familiar to me, to the point that it engenders an emotional reaction. It takes me back to Afghanistan, Vietnam, Tunis and countless other places. It is the smell of every kind of garbage being burned at once.

As a kid, I avoided scary films at all costs. But writing a book about '80s teen movies meant I had to face my fear.

Glenn Kenny: Beyond the Valley of the Dolls: "My Happening" (Criterion)
The cheerful nihilism of two Hollywood outsiders permitted to play with what Orson Welles once called "the biggest electric train set any boy ever had" yielded an irreproducible result-a result that mortified Twentieth Century-Fox's executives to the extent that they felt compelled to practically disown the film, even after it became a substantial hit. That the movie business has never seen such a thing happen before or since says quite a bit about Beyond the Valley of the Dolls' proper place in American cinema.

Closes In On 'Gunsmoke' Record

'The Simpsons'

Tonight, Fox's long-running animated powerhouse The Simpsons joins a very exclusive club of U.S. scripted primetime shows when its 600th episode, "Treehouse of Horror XXVII" airs. How rare is this club? The only other scripted primetime show to reach 600 episodes is Gunsmoke, which ran for 20 seasons on CBS from 1955 to 1975.

No wonder then Fox is going all-out for the episode, with a couch gag enabled for VR and visible through Google Goggles (with specially-made branded goggles even produced for the event). And that's in addition to segments parodying The Hunger Games and Kingsman that, if previous "Treehouse of Horror" installments are any judge, will be among the seasons's best-reviewed bits.

But while impressive, tonight's milestone doesn't land The Simpsons another record just yet. The show is already the longest-running primetime series in terms of total seasons, hitting that milestone in 2009 with the start of season 21, and no other show is likely to touch that achievement for a long time. However, Gunsmoke still holds the primetime record for the most-ever episodes, with 635.

The Simpsons won't surpass that count until sometime in 2018 when episode 16 of season 29 airs - assuming that the series is renewed. That's likely to happen of course: the most recent series renewal back in 2015 only covered seasons 27 and 28, but the cast are all optioned through a hypothetical season 30. Which, by the way is when most observers assume the show will, at long last, fade off into the poorly-regulated nuclear sunset. Not bad for a show that began as a series of crudely animated shorts on The Tracey Ullman Show.

Deal To Cut Greenhouse Gases

Nearly 200 Nations

Nearly 200 nations hammered out a legally binding deal to cut back on greenhouse gases used in refrigerators and air conditioners, a Rwandan minister announced to loud cheers on Saturday, in a major step against climate change.

The deal, which includes the world's two biggest economies, the United States and China, divides countries into three groups with different deadlines to reduce the use of factory-made hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) gases, which can be 10,000 times more powerful than carbon dioxide as greenhouse gases.

"It's a monumental step forward," U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry said as he left the talks in the Rwandan capital of Kigali late on Friday.

As Rwanda's Minister for Natural Resources, Vincent Biruta, began spelling out the terms of the deal shortly after sunrise on Saturday, applause from negotiators who had been up all night drowned out his words.

Under the pact, developed nations, including much of Europe and the United States, commit to reducing their use of the gases incrementally, starting with a 10 percent cut by 2019 and reaching 85 percent by 2036.

Urge Children To Save Seas

TV Cartoons

Coral reefs may be dying off at an alarming rate and pollution and overfishing emptying the seas. But fear not. Help is at hand in the form of a new wave of cartoon superheroes determined to save the oceans.

While Disney blockbusters "Finding Nemo" and "Finding Dory" have been attacked for sparking a spike in the poaching of tropical fish, Muppets creators the Jim Henson Company said Sunday that their new animated children's series "Splash and Bubbles" would help mobilise a new generation to save the undersea world.

The big-budget 40-episode series, which will screen on PBS in the United States next year, aims to "turn the tide of our world to save the planet".

Boss Lisa Henson, daughter of Jim Henson, the puppetry genius behind "The Muppets" and "Sesame Street", said the series, which was premiered at the MIPJUNIOR festival in the French resort of Cannes, comes at a vital time.

While four to seven-year-olds may not be able to do much now to tackle the millions of tonnes of plastic waste that have created the "Great Pacific Garbage Patch", she said it is "their generation who will be left to solve" such problems.

Miners Discover Huge Rock


Workers were excavating rare gems at a remote mine in Kachin State, Burma, when they unearthed the monster rock that weighs 175 tonnes, stands 9ft high and 18ft wide, and is worth a staggering 140 million.

With the wholesale price of Jadeite - the most valuable form of the gem - at anything between $1,000-$1,400 per kg, the rock is estimated to be worth $174.6m (143m) - the highest for any single piece of raw Jade.

And that price could be even higher once the rock, which will boast its trademark green hue once cleaned, has been polished and shaped.

The monster gem is second only in size to the a carved statue at the Jade Buddha Palace in China which weighs 260 tonnes.

Burma - or Myanmar - is the world's largest producer of jadeite and the $50bn-a-year industry represents half of the country's GDP.

Water-Guzzling Rich

Los Angeles

Their California mansions, lush with green lawns and vegetation, guzzle as much water as 90 homes -- but the astronomical bills are a drop in the bucket for them.

After years of searing drought in the state, authorities and activists are scrambling to find ways to get the ultra-rich to turn off their sprinklers and get on board with conservation efforts.

Some, like the news site Reveal, go for the sledgehammer: expose the identity of the residential "mega-users" and how much water they are using -- "drought-shaming" -- to push them, and people like them, to act.

A year ago, Reveal reported that 100 residential water customers in the luxury neighborhoods of Los Angeles, like Bel Air and Beverly Hills, were consuming millions of gallons of water a year.

One of the exclusive properties, according to the Center for Investigative Reporting site, used 11.8 million gallons (45 million liters) of water in one year, "enough for 90 households."

Borneo Icon Pushed To The Brink

Helmeted Hornbill

A striking bird with monochrome plumage and a formidable "beak", the helmeted hornbill is being hunted to extinction, one of the latest victims of a thriving global trade in exotic wildlife.

For decades poachers in Borneo's western forests focused on capturing orangutans and sun bears, but in the past few years a surge in demand for hornbill "ivory" has pushed the avian species to the brink.

The product has become so popular in China, where wealthy collectors are keen to show off their status by acquiring rare or unusual animals, that it is fetching up to five times the price of elephant tusk on the black market.

Poachers aren't interested in their brilliant plumage or large bills, but a helmet-like block of reddish-gold keratin at the front of the skulls known as a casque.

It's this soft, ivory-like substance that's carved by craftsmen in China into luxury ornaments, statues and jewellery -- trendy top-shelf trinkets that have soared in value as so-called "red ivory" has grown more prestigious.

Seeks More 'Realistic' Auction Prices


The global economic slowdown combined with "selective demand" are pushing Christie's to seek more realistic prices on their collections, directors of the auction house said Sunday.

"This year the market is not at the same level as it was one year or two years ago. We are facing a more challenging market," Guillaume Cerruti, Christie's president for Europe, the Middle East, Russia and India, told journalists in Dubai.

"To face this situation, the key word for us is selectivity," he said, announcing two auctions this week in the glitzy Gulf emirate, one on Modern and Contemporary Art and another showcasing "Important Watches".

Around 150 watches go up for auction on Wednesday, with estimated prices reaching $250,000.

Among them are two Patek Philippe 18K white gold automatic wristwatches with the Iraqi coat of arms and the name "Saddam", after executed Iraqi president Saddam Hussein who ordered the watches in 1974 and 1980 as gifts.

Walking On Sunshine

Solar Sidewalks

Scott Brusaw has a vision for the nation's roads. He believes the solar-powered glass pavers his company makes could transform thousands of miles of pavement into a new energy source.

His business, Solar Roadways, recently unveiled its first public installation, in a downtown plaza in this northern Idaho resort town. It's 150 square feet of hexagon-shaped solar panels that people can walk and bicycle on.

The company is working on proof that the panels, for which it has a patent, are strong enough and have enough traction to handle motor vehicles, including semitrailers.

"Our plan is to replace all the asphalt and concrete," said Brusaw, noting concrete occupies over 48,000 square miles in the U.S. "If you cover it with solar panels, we can make three times our energy needs."

Solar Roadways is among a growing number of companies embracing renewable energy as the U.S. aims to reduce carbon emissions by one-third from 2005 levels by 2030.

Weekend Box Office

'The Accountant'

Ben Affleck is still a box office draw outside of the bat suit. His new thriller "The Accountant" opened to a chart-topping $24.7 million this weekend, according to studio estimates Sunday. Gavin O'Connor directed the R-rated thriller, starring Affleck as an autistic mathematician. The film didn't play especially well with critics, but audiences, who were 58 percent male and 68 percent over the age of 35, gave it a promising "A'' CinemaScore.

The weekend's other new star-driven project, "Kevin Hart: What Now?" narrowly took second place over last week's champ "The Girl on the Train." The Kevin Hart concert film, which Universal Pictures distributed, took in $11.98 million. The comedian's 2013 concert film "Kevin Hart: Let Me Explain" opened to a similar $10 million in 2013.

In third place, "The Girl on the Train" netted $11.975 million for Universal, bringing its domestic total to $46.6 million. With such a minuscule difference, the Universal films could easily switch places when final numbers come in on Monday.

Holdovers "Miss Peregrine's Home For Peculiar Children" and "Deepwater Horizon" rounded out the top five with $8.9 million and $6.4 million, respectively.

The weekend's other new opener, the Mattel-inspired "Max Steel," bombed with only $2.2 million. Open Road distributed the film starring Ben Winchell, which currently has a zero percent on Rotten Tomatoes.

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 Accountant," $24.7 million ($2.8 million international).
    2."Kevin Hart: What Now?" $11.98 million.
    3."The Girl on the Train," $11.975 million ($7.8 million international).
    4."Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," $8.9 million ($23.5 million international).
    5."Deepwater Horizon," $6.4 million ($4.2 million international).
    6."Storks," $5.6 million ($10.6 million international).
    7."The Magnificent Seven," $5.2 million ($3.5 million international).
    8."Middle School: The Worst Years of My Life," $4.3 million.
    9."Sully," $3 million ($1.3 million international).
   10."The Birth of a Nation," $2.7 million.

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.
