WEEKEND BOX OFFICE: Good Boys tops the chart with 21MM, far surpassing gurus' estimates of 12-15MM and (iirc) the best original comedy opening of the year.  Fast & Furious Presents: Hobbs & Shaw places 14.1MM on a 44 percent drop; it's still doing far better overseas, so it the next F & F does well, we'll probably get another one of these.  The Lion King shows with 11.9MM on a 41 percent drop as it creeps up on 500MM domestic.  The Angry Birds Movie 2 debuts in the fourth slot with 10.5MM and 16.2MM since its Tuesday opening; that larger figure is less than half of its predecessor, despite better reviews, so ouch.  Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark rounds out the Top Five with 10MM on a 52 percent drop. Below the fold were three major new releases: 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, Blinded by the Light, and Where'd You Go, Bernadette. None had a large budget, but still a bit ouchy.

THE WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

with ELVIS PRESLEY! The King died on August 16, 1977, but remains a global pop phenomenon, so it's worth a recap of highlights from his legendary career.  For the 30th anniversary, Canada's Star-Phoenix, discussing ten important parts of Elvis history worth reliving, noted: "His was a sequined coat of many colours: '50s Greaser Elvis. Military Elvis. Hollywood Elvis. Aloha from Hawaii Elvis. Vegas Elvis. And, ultimately, Dead Fat Elvis."  The BBC had friend and aide Sonny West recall life with The King. 

ACTION NEWS 5 still has its local coverage from Aug. 16-17, 1977 (here, here, here and here) on the Tube, where you can also see funeral footage from the UK.  Here's read the obit that ran the next day in the Washington Post. Elvis Presley News recaps the international headlines from the event and links to the eulogy at his funeral. On a happier note, check out what is likely the first footage taken of Elvis, with backstage shots of Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Buddy Holly in 1955; shades of Walk The Line!  Let's start with his performance of "Hound Dog" o­n The Milton Berle Show six months later, not o­nly because it's historic, but also because Paul Miller and I often reached for it when we would stumble into our KUSR shift at the last minute -- on the broadcast, Uncle Miltie vamped for awhile, which gave us time to pull records for the show.  He was also iconic in "Jailhouse Rock" that year.  Elvis sang a mashup of "Love Me Tender" and "Witchcraft" with Frank Sinatra when he got back from the Army.  All of his movies -- such as "Viva Las Vegas" --made money, but his musical career stalled in the 1960s until he electrified and charmed the public with his televised '68 Comeback Special (Parts One, Two, Three, Four).  1970 finds him singing "In The Ghetto" and "Suspicious Minds" in the jumpsuit, though pre-bloated.  I'm going to throw in "Little Sister" just 'cause I like it.  Sadly, in a few short years, bloated jumpuit Elvis would be delivering a wacked-out take on "Are You Lonesome Tonight?" -- though to be fair, this audio-only version from 1969 is even more demented and he knows it.  I would rather remember Jumpsuit Elvis for the signature horns that open "See See Rider."  a tribute to his enduring legacy as the fact that he could hit the charts decades after his death with a remix of "A Little Less Conversation," a video subtly recalling "Jailhouse Rock," and Paul Oakenfold's remix of "Rubberneckin'"The King may be gone, but the brand lives on, making millions and recruiting new fans under the watchful eyes of Elvis Presley Enterprises and CKX, Inc.

GREETINGS FROM GRACELAND:  It must be said, however, that Elvis Presley Enterprises did not have a good handle on the King's affairs in the years immediately following his death.  Chicago radio personalities Steve Dahl and Garry Meier won a local emmy for their 1981 comedic look at what was then a very seedy exploitation of Elvis in Memphis. (Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6, Part 7.)

MOJO NIXON & SKID ROPER: "Elvis Is Everywhere."

STRAND OF OAKS visits KEXP.

WOODSTOCK: On Aug. 15-17, 1969, hundreds of thousands of people gathered in a lovely natural amphitheater in Bethel (not Woodstock), NY for "three days of peace and music," including sets from Crosby, Stills and NashThe Who, Santana, Joe Cocker, Jefferson AirplaneArlo Guthrie, Canned HeatJimi Hendrix, and the proverbial many more. BONUS: The New York Times has extensive 50th anniversary coverage. EXTRA BONUS: Woodstock skepticism from NBC News, BuzzFeedNews, and The Federalist. TRIPLE BONUS: An assessment of Creedence Clearwater Revival's largely forgotten set. QUADRUPLE BONUS: WXPN is live-streaming Woodstock as it unfolded.
