CLYDE STUBBLEFIELD, James Brown's one-time drummer and the creator of one of hip-hop's most popular samples, has died at the age of 73.  That 20 seconds of "Funky Drummer" of course, is just the tip of an amazing acreer that includes gems like "Mother Popcorn."

WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: The LEGO Batman repeats atop the chart with a strong 34.2MM on a Presidents' Day Weekend that seems to have not brought out the masses.  Fifty Shades Darker places again with 21MM on a 55 percent drop from last weekend (and after an 11MM Valentine's Day).  This sequel has grossed ~277MM worldwide against a 55MM budget and the end of the trilogy has already been shot, awaiting next February.  The debut of The Great Wall shows with 18MM against a 150MM, which sounds like a bomb until you realize this was all about establishing Matt Damon as Big In China, where the film has grossed 170MM; the global total stands at 262MM so far.  John Wick: Chapter Two takes the fourth slot with 16.5MM and has already outgrossed the original on domestic screens.  The debut of Fist Fight rounds out the Top Five with 12MM against a 25MM budget.  Below the fold, A Cure For Wellness debuted in tenth with 4MM against a 40MM budget; Ouch.

McCullough catalogs Washington's blunders -- many of them nearly fatal to the Cause -- but concludes: "He was not a brilliant strategist or tactician, nor a gifted orator, not an intellectual... He had made serious mistakes in judgment. But experience had been his great teacher from boyhood... and above all, Washington never forgot what was at stake, and he never gave up." That, as much as anything, is why Washington is usually ranked among the greatest of US presidents. not to mention the subject of a profane, animated rap cartoon.

VALENTINE'S DAY: I've never been a big Valentine's Day guy, but I have always liked The Replacements' "Valentine" and Elvis Costello's cover of "My Funny Valentine."  Beyond that, my thoughts typically drift to the Velvet Underground's "I'll Be Your Mirror," The Beatles' "In My Life," and the Beach Boys' "God Only Knows." I think it's probably very difficult to write a straight-ahead, universal love song, and these three are great.
