But in Jefferson County, that pursuit is often fraught with inequities, further driving the race and income divides that fracture Louisville.

Not so with Dana H. though, the unlikely crown jewel in this bizarre Broadway season. The theatrical arrangement of Dana H. is simple: The actor Deirdre O’Connell sits in a chair facing the audience, lip-syncing to an interview conducted with Dana Higginbotham, the playwright Lucas Hnath’s mother. As a work both of witness and theatrical construction, Dana H. raises a hundred questions about authorship, violence, voice. Dana H. is at the Lyceum Theatre.

‘Succession’ Season 3 Premiere Recap: Battle of the Bastards
A review of the Succession Season Three premiere, “Secession,” coming up just as soon as a Pope follows me on Twitter…Midway through “Secession,” Kendall’s girlfriend Naomi Pierce jokes on the phone that he may be the best man in the world. We know enough about Kendall Roy after two seasons to know how wrong he is about virtually all of that. This is most palpable in the excruciatingly awkward phone conversation Roman and Logan have late in the episode. Roman feels he has earned the job — has been the good son that everyone treats as the bad son — but is ultimately too cowardly to seize it. But even before that call, you can see Roman, Shiv, and the others all waffling about what to do, and why.

Succession review, season three: Logan Roy remains one of the most frightening characters on TV
(The real tagline, “make your move”, suggests something more like chess than violent warfare, although since even the games the Roy family play tend to end up being forms of warfare, anyway, the difference may be negligible.) Logan Roy, the genius loci around which both show and family revolve, remained one of the most frightening characters on television, an inscrutable emotional black hole with a tendency to lash out like a kicked dog at the mere notion of a threat. Brian Cox, an actor whose rumbling gravitas perfectly complements the quasi-Shakespearian machinations of Succession’s family plot, is never better than when he is playing Logan trying to hide his fear. Roman Roy, played with a perverse, slimy sex appeal by Culkin, remains an incorrigible satyr; Snook, as Shiv, still exudes an air of brittle overcompensation in the face of daddy’s power. ‘Succession’ season three is available from 2am on Monday 18 October via Sky Store and NOW, and will subsequently air Mondays at 9pm on Sky Atlantic

The ubiquitous Alan Hawkshaw was the best known British composer you’d never heard of
Alan Hawkshaw’s late-life status as a funky hero to American hip-hop producers came as something of a surprise to him. Even then, Hawkshaw – who has died aged 84 – was something of a veteran. Robin Phillips, who ran KPM in its heyday, would encourage his musicians to get through eight tracks in a three-hour session. It turned out Hawkshaw had a gift for funk, and his early 70s work for KPM would later become cratedigger heaven for seekers of new samples. The best known composer you’ve never heard of will be staying that way for a while yet.

All hail Ryan Murphy, Hollywood’s $300m king of phoning it in
In football terms, Murphy was a big money signing, a telly galactico, proof if it were needed that the streamer was serious about its plans for world domination.

Court Theatre’s intimate ‘Othello’ drops some text, reveals thoughts with subtext
Two of the most powerful moments in Court Theatre’s svelte, intimate and implosive production of “Othello” occur with the simple portrayal of pensiveness.

Roston’s Othello is Iago’s intellectual superior, even while Iago has a better claim on understanding human emotion. The supporting characters mostly come across as functional, their depth sacrificed to the cause of “centering” fully on Othello.

Bryant and Malek’s wacky chemistry, as a couple going mattress shopping and acting out details of their increasingly bizarre life, is what holds this sketch together, and Yang is nicely droll here as the mattress salesman/straight man. Bryant’s delivery of the line “You reek of vermouth and whores,” Malek’s delivery of the phrase “nagging shrew,” and the eventual reveal of not one, but two, guns, pushes this sketch into “best of the night” territory.

Review: In ‘As You Like It’ at Chicago Shakespeare Theater, the Beatles meet the Bard and it’s a terrific party
Heidi Kettenring (who plays Phoebe, et al), Lachrisa Grandberry (Audrey) and Melanie Brezill (Celia) also keep the laughs coming, as does the band, posing on and off their podium to do their stuff. The milieu, as gorgeously rendered in Carmen Alatorre’s costumes) is one of wacky 1960s pageantry, replete with a psychedelic set from Pam Johnson. Much of the singing is a blast. Liam Quealy, who plays Orlando, drives his way through songs like “Do You Want to Know a Secret?” and “Can’t Buy Me Love.” He is also a very generous performance, since he helps Lakeisha Renee (Rosalind), a less confident vocalist but charming actor, find her way into the show’s musical demands.

The Larkins, episode 2, review: you're in trouble when the taxman is the best thing in it
“Pop and Ma are good people,” said Mariette, unconvincingly, in episode two of The Larkins (ITV). As far as we can tell, Pop and Ma Larkin (Bradley Walsh and Joanna Scanlan) run the eerily perfect village of Littlechurch in the way the Camorra run Naples. Pop and Ma are good people who pay no tax and that, according to the moral of this episode, is a jolly good thing. There we have it – Pop Larkin is a libertarian. Though, so far, she is lumbered with a Ma Larkin who has no agency and little purpose bar having her bottom patted by Pop.

We Need More Radical Climate Fiction
It will take imagination and vision for humans to survive the climate crisis — a willingness to believe in things that seem impossible. To that end, early this year, Grist magazine announced a climate fiction contest, Imagine 2200, and published the winning stories as an online collection last month. In literary terms, the sensibility of Imagine 2200 can be traced to several artistic movements. Questions of class struggle are mostly elided in Imagine 2200, but there are several exceptions. It would be interesting to see what kinds of stories a socialist climate fiction contest would produce.

Chris Redd returns to 'SNL' Weekend Update to pay for a 2020 COVID joke that aged so poorly
Saturday Night Live's latest Weekend Update segments were highlighted by some actually-strong one-liners about COVID-bearing bats and, unexpectedly, trickle-down economics. It's not just his rant wanting to know who the hell drive blimps, though that part is hilarious. It's also not his incisively funny take on angry people overreacting to a bisexual Superman. The bit that really lands is when Redd is forced to face an off-the-cuff comment he made on a Feb. 2020 Weekend Update, where he declared — in a very poorly aged attempt at humor — "Black people can't get the coronavirus!" To his credit, Redd is a great sport about the whole thing.
'SNL' hilariously explains 'Squid Game' with country music. Now it's stuck in your head, too.
There's nothing like a good Saturday Night Live earworm, especially when it's Pete Davidson (and his uncanny lookalike Rami Malek) doing the singing. This absolute winner of a musical comedy sketch finds Davidson and Malek crooning a heartfelt country number about loss, desperation, and a homicidal game show popularized by Netflix. Yup, it's time for the inevitable marriage of classic country music tropes and... Squid Game? You'll be humming this tune in your head long after the sketch is over. This is Squid Game.)
Daniel Craig crashes Rami Malek and Kenan Thompson's audition to play Prince on 'SNL'
During a sketch on the latest SNL, Kenan Thompson, Rami Malek, and surprise guest Daniel Craig each audition to earn the starring role in Peele's (Chris Redd) pretend film. At first, the competition is only between Thompson and Malek — playing themselves — as they're asked to have a "Prince-off." Redd has them each act out things like Prince stepping on a Lego brick or getting hit with a football. Thompson earns the role because Malek is not Black, but when Craig enters the room it flips. Craig is dressed as a prince, not the Prince, and he still takes the role from Thompson.

Superman changes motto to 'Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow,' says DC chief
Superman's new "mission statement": "Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow." In fact, "Truth, Justice and the American Way" did not originate with the first Superman comic books by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. By the 1960s, the motto shifted to "truth, justice and freedom" on the kids cartoon series, "The New Adventures of Superman." Since then, however, the "American Way" motto has fallen out of favor. On the 1993 live-action series "Lois & Clark," Superman fought for "truth and justice" full stop, and in the 2006 movie "Superman Returns," starring Brandon Routh, Daily Planet editor-in-chief Perry White (Frank Langella) blithely asks if Superman still fights for "truth, justice, all that stuff."

Anthony Michael Hall didn't get a horror boost after '80s stardom. But it's here now in 'Halloween Kills'
Anthony Michael Hall may have starred in a bunch of seminal pop-culture classics, from the original “Vacation” to John Hughes’ most beloved works, but he missed out on the rise of the slasher movie in the late 1970s and ‘80s.

Tragedy, mental decline and succession: how billionaire Sumner Redstone was a real-life Logan Roy
As HBO drama Succession returns to our screens this weekend, viewers will once again – no doubt – link the dysfunctional Roy family with the Murdoch clan.

The Murdochs are very vivid but they’re not the model.”As with many epic sagas, Sumner Redstone’s life was shaped by near-tragedy.

My Unapologetic Diaries by Joan Collins, review: rows with ‘slimy’ directors and ‘befuddled’ celebs
She belongs to an era of grand hotels, gracious manners and, in her own words, “highly exhilarating” shopping expeditions along Fifth Avenue.

It’s all white fur, limousines and the flashguns of the paparazzi – even if she can then never find the pictures they snap in print. Rank matters enormously to her, and she seethes if ever she has to mix with Economy passengers when leaving a plane. She had to battle to be paid the same as the men ($120,000 an episode), with no residuals or repeat fees.

Billionaire Roy’s Club: Succession makes being rich look ridiculous – and we love them for it
The Roys – unlike families like the Mossbachers – are not just rich, but what Roman Roy describes as “properly ‘f*** you, f*** you, I-don’t-even-care-about-climate-change, I’m-in-New-Zealand-with-my-own-private-army’ rich”, making the stakes surrounding their inheritance and their respective trust funds even higher.

Alan Hawkshaw, Countdown and Grange Hill composer, dies aged 84
Alan Hawkshaw, the musician and songwriter who composed some of the UK’s best-known TV themes and was sampled across the hip-hop scene, has died aged 84. Hawkshaw wrote the loping, almost reggae-like theme to Grange Hill (originally written years before and entitled Chicken Man), the motif for announcing the contestants’ time is up on Countdown, and the theme to Channel 4 News.

These library music tracks, which span a wide variety of genres, became a treasure trove for hip-hop producers, and Hawkshaw samples can be heard on tracks by Jay-Z, the Sugarhill Gang, Meek Mill and others.
How Dalí’s ‘lips’ sofa began life … on the back of an envelope
One of the world’s best-known pieces of furniture, Salvador Dalí’s Mae West lips sofa, started life as a sketch on the back of an envelope, research in the archive of a Sussex country house has revealed. These include Dalí, whose work James funded at one point for an entire year, and also surrealist artists including René Magritte, Marcel Duchamp, Leonora Carrington and Jean Cocteau. “This idea sparked Dalí’s imagination, and the two of them began to discuss it, each feeding off the other,” he says. That version is now in the collection at West Dean; the version at the V&A is a later model, upholstered in bright red wool with a black fringe. It came into its time, and it became an emblem of sexualisation.”Tantalisingly, there’s a possibility that another original sofa is out there, probably in France.

But his dad’s demand that Kendall take the fall for the cruise ship scandal went a step too far, prompting him to pull the big switcheroo in the season finale’s climactic news conference. Kendall’s unlikely accomplice in that ambush is his cousin Greg Hirsch (Nicholas Braun), the grandson of Logan’s disapproving brother Ewan (James Cromwell). In Season 1, he smartly held onto some damning documents about Brightstar’s troubles, anticipating the moment when he could use them as leverage. And after Kendall finds himself in need of a plan.

What Constable's apocalypse can teach us about the mysteries of 'late style'
Moreover, in execution and effect, they conform to a phenomenon known as “late style”. According to Clark, works produced in old age by the finest artists tend to share certain characteristics. In addition, he claimed, late works “are not concerned with the imitation of natural appearances”, as the artist’s handling becomes “rougher”. The “astonishing vitality of touch” of an “aged hand” is, Clark conceded, “hard to explain”. Yet, he declared, “I believe that old, even very old, artists have added something of immense value to the sum of human experience.”

In the Trial of Ahmaud Arbery’s Accused Killers, Unsettling Video Will Have a Starring Role
ATLANTA — The three white Georgia men accused of murdering Ahmaud Arbery have already come in for harsh judgment from the highest of places. Donald Trump called the slaying of Mr. Arbery, an unarmed Black man, “disturbing.” Barack Obama described it as an example of enduring racial injustice. Their pursuit of Mr. Arbery, 25, through their Brunswick suburb after suspecting him of a series of break-ins ended with a brief fight in which Travis McMichael fired his shotgun at Mr. Arbery at close range. On Monday, attention will turn back to Brunswick, where jury selection is set to begin in the murder trial of the three men — the first chapter in a courtroom drama likely to be charged with raw emotion and allegations of racism. With an unsettling video playing a starring role, the trial will bear similarities to that of Derek Chauvin, the former Minneapolis police officer who was found guilty of murder in April after a bystander video showed him kneeling for roughly nine minutes on the neck of George Floyd, an unarmed Black man.

HBO's 'Succession' Season 3 features a Roy family out for blood
After a two-year gap, HBO’s onetime sleeper hit “Succession” finally debuts its pandemic-delayed third season on Sunday. But though “Succession” may be a bit of a dinosaur, there’s lots of roar left in the old girl yet. It's the story of the billionaire Roy family, and the struggle over who will inherit the patriarch’s glitzy but struggling media conglomerate. Ever since the show’s first season, when Waystar Royco CEO Logan Roy (Brian Cox) miraculously recovered from a stroke, the immediacy of the succession question has been backburnered for a slower musical chairs dynamic. His Logan Roy is both man and monster, someone utterly consumed by the game of acquisitions and mergers, and who must appear to be winning at all times.

Columbus Symphony kicks off Masterworks season with violinist Stefan Jackiw
The parents of acclaimed violinist Stefan Jackiw are retired physics professors; his mother, So-Young Pi, taught at Boston University, and his father, Roman Jackiw, at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. “I was lucky in the sense that I had parents who were both supportive, but not crazy, crazy pushy with my violin study,” said Jackiw, 36, ahead of his appearance with the Columbus Symphony.

This Year’s Oscar Race May Already Have a Diversity Problem
“Jamika and I break this glass ceiling with so much excitement,” said Neal in her acceptance speech. “I know that one day it won’t be unusual or groundbreaking—it will just be normal.”It felt like real progress. Even so, just 33% of current members are female and 19% are people of color, according to The New York Times. And as the 2022 Oscar race gets underway, it seems likely that there will once again be a significant lack of diversity, especially in the most high-profile categories. The possibility that the 2022 Oscars could be a step back in diversity is especially ironic because it’s the first year that requires the submission of a confidential Academy Inclusion Standards form for best-picture consideration.
Michael Caine Says His Latest Film Is His Last, But He's Not Retired
After six decades in the business, Michael Caine has earned his retirement. Appearing on BBC Radio’s Kermode and Mayo’s Film Review programme, the actor said that his current film Best Sellers is likely his last. The trade paper wrote that they had confirmed that Caine “is not fully retiring.” (V.F. One suspects that, with Christopher Nolan readying a biopic on J. Robert Oppenheimer, there might be room for at least a quick Caine cameo. (Who else but Michael Caine could sell a line like Interstellar’s “I will have solved the problem of gravity”?)

Jenelle Evans: I Have a Perfect Face, Unlike That Goblin Chelsea Houska!
OK, so you know how Jenelle does that thing every so often where she tries to get into a feud with Chelsea Houska, even though Chelsea never acknowledges it and the feud exists solely in her own mind? The joke, of course, being that while Jenelle has tried to do some of the same things Chelsea has done, Chelsea is ultimately more successful. But to actually say the words "I have the perfect face" in any context is just an inconceivably douchey move, especially because the implication here is clearly that Chelsea does not have a perfect face. So this is essentially Jenelle saying that she's prettier than Chelsea, which is super rude. Congrats on that perfect face though, girl.

How Brian Cox's Logan Roy leads his 'Succession' family to new lows of super-rich nastiness
Brian Cox chose the ultimate zeitgeist accouterment for the lavish "Succession" Season 3 New York premiere Oct. 12 – a face mask featuring the two-word expletive his fearsome patriarch CEO Logan Roy frequently hurls. The HBO drama series kicks off its third season to breathless anticipation Sunday (9 EDT/PDT)precisely because devotees desperately miss the nastiest super-rich family on TV. With "Succession" earning critical raves, Cox should start finding a low-effort way to dish out the Logan abuse that many fans actually seek in person. Brian Cox:'Succession' season three is 'extraordinary'That's just how "Succession" fans want it from the scheming head of the Waystar Royco conglomerate with a right-wing media division bearing a passing resemblance to the Murdoch family-run Fox News. And he enjoys his unexpected turn as McDonald's voiceover pitchman, bringing the jarring sound of Logan Roy, not bellowing curses,but obscenely happy with a burger, to TVs across the country.."I love the anomaly of a McDonald's commercial juxtaposed with Logan Roy," says Cox.

Luke Combs walked the fine line that has made him a star at Country Thunder Saturday night
Chris CoplanThe RepublicCountry Thunder proves one unavoidable truth: modern country music is mostly weird.

Nor is he necessarily yet another pop country act, his rootsy appeal gives him a little more depth and credibility. And while he could get hokey with these tricks – like the shameless Country Thunder shoutout at the end of "Angels Workin' Overtime" – Combs has great crowd control skills. This story was a deeply intimate way for Combs to genuinely connect himself to 40,000-plus people in a way that never felt forced.

How chatting to your cat can make a purrfect pal (and what each of their 'meows' means)
The nation's 11 million cat-lovers have been urged to channel Dr Dolittle and learn to speak to their pets. Cat specialists are speaking out after ownership soared during lockdown, with more than a million homes acquiring a kitten for the first time. Without a close bond, the cat may end up leaving home and becoming a stray, experts have warned. A short meow is a greeting of hello or 'Hi', while multiple meows show a cat's excitement to see you. A mid-pitched meow means a cat is asking for something – probably food – while a low-pitched 'mraaooww' is a sign of annoyance, and a high-pitched 'rrrooowww' implies pain or shock.

Hollywood crews reach new deal with studios, narrowly avoiding a nationwide strike
Hollywood narrowly avoided a near-total shutdown as the union representing most of the industry's crew members reached a tentative agreement for a new three-year contract with the major studios late on Saturday. About 60,000 crew members had been poised to strike if a deal was not reached, which would have brought nearly all film and television production to a halt nationwide.

This time, a remarkable show of unity from crew members may have helped them gain ground in negotiations. Now, crew members are poised to potentially see the substantive change they have hoped for for decades.

Watch Pete Davidson and Rami Malek Imitate Each Other on SNL
pic.twitter.com/BN37d8OClD — Saturday Night Live - SNL (@nbcsnl) October 17, 2021Saturday Night Live’s Pete Davidson has been mistaken for actor Rami Malek on at least one occasion, so it was only natural that last night’s episode featured the two playing each other. Malek, in his hosting debut, took on the role of Davidson in a sketch that felt a lot like Celebrity Jeopardy but was not, in fact, Celebrity Jeopardy. But the real stars of the sketch were Davidson and Malek, who fully committed to the role of his lookalike. Malek-as-Davidson insisting that he can’t sit next to Davidson-as-Malek because “his eyes are freaking me out” is particularly funny. Perhaps Davidson is the long-lost Malek triplet?

If you are curious about Dave Grohl, drummer from “tragic grunge poster boys” Nirvana, whose Nevermind album has just turned 30, The Storyteller might not be the memoir for you. In 2014 Grohl, Novoselic and Love ended years of suits and counter-suits over the rights to Nirvana’s music with a very public show of solidarity. For anyone interested in how a hyperactive misfit from suburban Virginia became a third of Nirvana and went on to become a stadium-filling star with his own Foo Fighters, The Storyteller lives up to its billing. Raised in a household short on cash but big on maternal love, Grohl believes he probably had ADHD, such was his restlessness and inability to turn his natural curiosity into good grades. With Scream suddenly defunct, Grohl hears on the grapevine that Nirvana – then merely well-regarded – were interested in him.

Superman Changes Motto to ‘Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow,’ Says DC Chief
In fact, “Truth, Justice and the American Way” did not originate with the first Superman comic books by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Instead, the saying came from a “Superman” radio serial in the early 1940s, as a way to cheer on American military efforts in World War II. The “American Way” motto was revived for the “Adventures of Superman” TV series that aired in the 1950s — during the first days of the Cold War and the height of McCarthyism paranoia. Since then, however, the “American Way” motto has fallen out of favor. Most recently, on Oct. 11, DC announced that Jon Kent — Superman’s son, who also wears the iconic “S” shield as a superhero — would come out as bisexual.

Beyond Chucky: Frightening Alternatives for Halloween TV
The approach of Halloween brings an influx of horror to television and streaming, and this year the offerings have a classic appeal: reboots of “Chucky” on Syfy and USA, “Day of the Dead” on Syfy and of “I Know What You Did Last Summer” on Amazon Prime Video. “Midnight Mass” has the same emphasis on chilly, foreboding atmosphere as the earlier shows, but it seems to benefit from not being tied to a specific literary source. Especially in its early episodes, it feels looser and quirkier and more human. A lot of the credit for that goes to the stars, Zach Gilford and Hamish Linklater. Gilford plays a native of a small, isolated coastal island who returns home after a stretch in jail for killing someone while driving drunk; Linklater plays a cleric who arrives at the same time, as a temporary replacement for the island’s aging priest.

No Time To Die Is a Disappointing Finale for Daniel Craig’s James Bond
Perhaps a female Agent 007? Perhaps a black female Agent 007? She’s getting all the rave reviews for her brief dazzling turn in the Havana sequence of No Time To Die.

Meet the true crime podcaster making your guilty pleasure more ethical
Celisia Stanton: A few things led me to become a podcaster, or more specifically a true crime podcaster.

The anonymous wag’s delicious sarcasm — and yes, that was sarcasm, dripping like the blood we were all about to experience on the screen before us — neatly encapsulates the perverse appeal of this most predictable of film sagas, now on its 12th chapter and not over yet.

Review: Salonen’s dazzling S.F. Symphony program is one for the birds
Birds, those enchanting and fearsome magical dinosaurs, have two distinct superpowers that fascinate humans: they can sing, and they can fly. In Friday’s dazzling rendition in Davies Symphony Hall, which marked the piece’s first Symphony performance, Chase unleashed melodic lines that flitted and pirouetted in winsome curlicues. Birdsong is everywhere in Messiaen’s music; it’s one of the things that defines his compositional style most reliably. “Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun” got the program off to sleek, enticing start, with flutist Lorna McGhee, the principal of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, stepping in to deliver a graceful account of the prominent solos.

Strictly mired in sexism row over comments made to male dancers and contestants
The BBC’s Strictly Come Dancing has been embroiled in a sexism row as the judges have been accused of making “predatory” comments to male dancers and contestants. After the first two episodes of this year’s competition, the BBC received 128 complaints in relation to sexist comments about a male contestant, blasphemous language and viewers finding a same-sex dance partnership inappropriate. Tensions this year seem to have boiled over as it is understood that in previous years, the BBC has not received close to this amount of complaints, if any at all, about sexism against male contestants. While it is not clear whether the complaints to the BBC refer to her remarks, this year’s series has already seen other comments to a male dancer that a male sexual abuse and rape charity boss has argued show a “double standard”. During last week’s episode, judge Craig Revel Horwood told professional male dancer Gorka Márquez that "it really has made my night seeing you on all fours, darling."
Strictly Come Dancing 2021, week 4 live: Adam Peaty does this year's first Argentine tango
We're into week four of the competition and now that Movie Week is over, we'll see another mixed bag of songs – from Ol' Blue Eyes to the Macarena. There’s often something of a comedown following a dazzling theme show, but this is extreme even by Strictly standards. Adam Peaty, who premiered the rumba last week, continues his pioneering streak by bringing us the season’s first Argentine tango. It’s a risky choice, as it requires intricate partnering and smouldering performances, but then the Olympian has never played it safe. But I’d imagine all eyes will be on the battle of the comedy Latin routines: Dan Walker’s cha cha cha to MC Hammer versus Greg Wise’s samba to the Macarena – with added twerking.
The man, the music: Paul McCartney in five acts
In the beginningThe first song Paul McCartney remembers writing was a tribute to his mother, Mary, called I Lost My Little Girl. McCartney was 14 and Mary had died of cancer, at the age of 47, shortly before the song was written. It has never been recorded, of course, but one can imagine how it would sound – sweet, melodic and an arrow to the heart, the earliest outpouring of some of the qualities that would make Paul McCartney the most successful and popular composer of the 20th century. It was the striking of the match that would shortly launch the rocket that would become Beatlemania. At Liverpool Institute, one of the city’s top grammar schools, McCartney had been voted “head boy” by his classmates.

Colombia begins sterilizing Pablo Escobar’s hippopotamuses
The Colombian government has begun sterilizing Pablo Escobar’s horny hippos to prevent the overly-fertile descendants of the late drug lord’s former pets from taking over the country’s marshlands. Out of all the animals that Pablo Escobar owned, hippos were reportedly his favorite. But the quartet of illegally imported hippos — reportedly the kingpin’s favorites — had better plans.

Scientists have projected that the country’s hippo population could surge to 1,500 by 2024 if no steps are taken.

The joys of surprising yourself with 'The Last Duel' ... and 'Succession'Enlarge this image toggle caption Patrick Redmond/Twentieth Century Pictures Patrick Redmond/Twentieth Century PicturesI had several reasons to suspect I was not the ideal audience for The Last Duel. In this case, I learned a lot about what I wanted from The Last Duel, and about whether the problems were in the concept or the execution. It made me think about another project that surprised me: Succession, which comes back for a third season this weekend on HBO. Succession also has an advantage that, for me, The Last Duel did not, although it kind of tried to get there: Succession is foundationally a dark comedy, at least as much as it is a drama. The Last Duel features a Ben Affleck performance that's primarily played for laughs: the kind of grimy, self-indulgent, hard-drinking, lots-of-sexing noble/royal who haunts so many similar stories.

Why contemporary Christian band MercyMe rewrote its most recent album during the pandemic
Millard recently discussed the band's current tour, response to the album "inhale (exhale)" and how he has continued to move forward during the global pandemic. Q: How was the band able to write the latest album "inhale (exhale)" during the height of the pandemic? It was weird to have an album complete before COVID and not look at what we were writing during that season, so the album changed completely, the album title changed. So in the studio, that's kind of why we starting writing again. We had just finished recording the song, knowing the album wasn't going to come out anytime soon.

Vendor sells Nazi gear at motorcycle rally
DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. (AP) — A vendor at a major motorcycle rally in Florida briefly sold hats emblazoned with Nazi symbols, saying she considered them a tribute to World War II veterans who helped defeat the Germans. The Daytona Beach News-Journal reports that the vendor was selling the hats embroidered with swastikas and a skull-and-bones logo used by the Nazi SS at a stand during Biketoberfest, an ongoing festival that draws thousands of bikers to the Daytona Beach area this month. The vendor said she had sold the hats at other biker rallies around the country without complaint. The woman also sells rings, wallet chains and hats without Nazi logos. “It doesn’t mean what people think,” said the vendor, who would only give her name as Jenny.
Now 41, killer of 4-year-old boy granted parole on 11th try
ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — Eric M. Smith, who was 13 when he killed a 4-year-old boy with a rock in western New York, has been granted parole, according to corrections officials. Smith, now 41, appeared for the 11th time before the Board of Parole on October 5 and was granted release as early as Nov. 17, the Department of Corrections and Community Supervision said in an emailed statement Saturday. Robie was walking alone to summer camp at a park in the Steuben County village of Savona in August 1993. At his trial, Smith’s lawyer unsuccessfully argued that Smith was mentally ill. Smith was sentenced to nine years to life in prison. He told a parole board in 2014 that he had held in his rage and frustration after years of bullying and took it out on a little boy who didn’t deserve it.
Customer’s shock over £37,000 bill at Salt Bae’s new restaurant has people divided
A £37,000 ($50,000) bill from Salt Bae’s new London steakhouse has sparked a debate on social media, with some suggesting that the pricey receipt must be a “PR stunt”. The food is even more expensive, with the chef’s famous 24-carat gold tomahawk steak costing £850 ($1,160). Overall, the bill came out to £32,194 ($44,250) before the addition of a 15 per cent service charge, which brought the total to £37,023. On Reddit, the receipt divided users, with some expressing similar shock over the bill while others accused the diners of knowing what they were doing by posting about the over-the-top meal. “All this is doing is trying to appeal to people who already know how much Petrus would cost at a restaurant,” they continued.

Customers allegedly turned away by NYC’s new ‘Soup Nazi’ at popular cafe
Move over “Soup Nazi.” New Yorkers are now cowering under the gaze of “Belligerent Bennie,” the unpredictable owner of popular Edgar’s Cafe on Amsterdam Avenue, named after the great American poet Edgar Allan Poe. Some are even saying “Nevermore!” to the petulant proprietor — real name Joseph DiBenedetto — after he allegedly chased and banned customers who dare to dine elsewhere. Customer Allen Sisk says he innocently eyed desserts at Edgar’s counter when Bennie advised, “Why don’t you go next door?” Helayne Seidman“I walked out and left.

Jesy (feat. Nicki Minaj), 'Boyz'
Jesy (feat. Nicki Minaj), 'Boyz'UMG on YouTubeBlackfishing aside, there's a reason Jesy Nelson isn't a household name. "Boyz," the former Little Mix member's first solo attempt, is a pseudo-rap track founded on an extensive interpolation of Diddy's 2001 hit "Bad Boy for Life." With "Boyz," Nelson (you might know her — if nowhere else — from viral "balegdeh" meme fame) commits the cardinal solo career sin: being boring. Nicki Minaj is the only redeemable part of "Boyz," which makes sense for two reasons: One, Minaj can save any song with a couple of bars.

The 10 best new poetry books of 2021 so far
You’ll find novel corona variants in books out this year from Kayo Chingonyi (see below), Paul Muldoon and Adrian Earle. But in the vivid bar-set poems, Taylor brings a close-knit community to life. I can’t tell whether this poem, “Love Story: Lies”, is looking back at what followed a break-up, or remembering when the flaws first came to show. Though her books have so far been published only in France and Ireland, the Yorkshire-born Nutter deserves a wider audience in this country. It reminded me of John Berryman, whose self-joshing Dream Songs, and their own Shakespearean vibes, any poetry fan in their cups might quote.

Netflix's 'Squid Game' success opens doors for competition to take advantage of cheaper global production costs
Netflix's "Squid Game" is an exception. Netflix has its biggest hit ever with "Squid Game," the gory dystopian South Korean series that has taken the world by storm. Typically, hit series breed competitive envy and angst. But some of Netflix's competition is cheering the success of "Squid Game" because it further opens the door to non-U.S. production, allowing media companies to save oodles of money if foreign-language television becomes part of a standard American household's content diet. Very few, if any, non-English speaking TV series have become part of the mainstream zeitgeist prior to "Squid Game."

Netflix can't shake Chappelle controversy
But instead, the show — the finale in a series of six specials that Chappelle partnered with Netflix for — quickly ignited a firestorm. Willis also dismissed the special as a case of just "Chappelle being Chappelle" — an equal opportunity offender known for pushing boundaries and lobbing grenades with his comedy. Eric Schiffer, a crisis communications and public relations expert, said controversy simply comes with the territory when watching Chappelle on stage. Some Netflix employees are planning a walkout next week in protest of the company's stance on Chappelle, according to multiple reports.

I've made my last film, says Sir Michael Caine
But Sir Michael Caine's new film will likely be his last, the Oscar winner has admitted, as he said leading roles were hard to come by at 88. Sir Michael said he had not received any other offers of work for the past couple of years, adding: "Nobody's been making any movies that I want to do, but also I'm 88. I'm now not an actor, I'm a writer, which is lovely because as an actor you have to get up at half past six in the morning and go to the studio. Best Sellers stars Sir Michael as a bitter, alcoholic writer who is cajoled into embarking on a book tour by a publisher. The film was also the first time he had played an alcoholic character on stage or screen, the actor told Simon Mayo on Kermode and Mayo's Film Review.
