THE MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND STARTS HERE:

 

...with THE SWEET!  The bubble-glam rockers are probably best known for the trifecta of "Little Willy," "Ballroom Blitz" and "Fox on the Run," though they also charted with the harder-edged "Action" and the more ballad-y "Love is Like Oxygen."  All of those clips also feature the band's rather unique fashion sense, but you have to see the clip for "Wig Wam Bam" -- complete with headdress -- to see the band at its most ridiculous.  BONUS: "All That Glitters" is a BBC documentary originally broadcast in February 1974 charting a day in the life of The Sweet.

FLOCK OF DIMES: Jann Wesner plays WFUV Live.

VALERIE JUNE also plays WFUV.

SLEATER-KINNEY shares a video for "High In The Grass."

KING GIZZARD & THE LIZARD WIZARD founder Stu Mackenzie talks about microtonal tunings and more on World Cafe.

JULIA JACKLIN is profiled at Pitchfork.

ROBERT PLANT has instructed his children to unleash his entire archive of unreleased material for free after he climbs that stairway.

THE BEST LPs of 2021 (So Far), according to TIME.

T. REX: "20th Century Boy." Aow!

BILL COSBY refuses sex offender therapy, is denied parole.

THE THR COMEDY ROUNDTABLE: Ted Danson, Pete Davidson, Ed Helms, Lamorne Morris, Ben Platt and Chris Redd discuss the careers they covet, the discomfort of fame and the pressure to use their platforms to speak up.

VAL KILMER made a documentary about Val Kilmer.

GREEN LANTERN: The forthcoming HBO Max series has cast Jeremy Irvine as gay superhero Alan Scott.

KRAVEN THE HUNTER: Avengers star Aaron Taylor-Johnson is set to play the Spider-Man villain in a forthcoming Marvel movie.

PHYSICAL has a trailer online.

TIGER WOODS discusses his rehab.

ZOMBIE MOVIES: A Unified Theory.

MEMORIAL DAY has become -- in the minds of some -- a day devoted to uncovering their swimming pools and barbeques. So take a moment (preferably at 3 p.m. local time) to remember what it's really about.You can read about "The Meaning of Memorial Day" with selections from American authors and statesmen, including Herman Melville, Ernie Pyle, Louisa May Alcott, Frederick Douglass, and Dwight D. Eisenhower. Joyce Johnson and the "Arlington Ladies" who attend every funeral in Arlington National Cemetery, to ensure no soldier is buried alone, take more than a moment.  Re-read "A Death in the Family," as powerful as it was when Christopher Hitchens wrote it in 2007.  Revisit William Wyler's footage of the last mission of the Memphis Belle, or check the Tube for Alfred Hitchcock's footage of the liberation of the Belsen concentration camp.  The Wikipedia entry for Memorial Day notes a race track connection unrelated to the Indy 500.  It's a good day -- as good as we are likely to get -- for Sgt. Barry Sadler's No. 1 smash, "Ballad of the Green Berets."  or the movie adaptation of Gen. George S. Patton's "Speech to the Third Army."  As "Greyhawk" once wrote at the Mudville Gazette, "This is Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy it. Celebrate it - the people who died to give you that right would appreciate it. But they didn't die peaceably in their beds, these dogs who fell protecting sheep from wolves."
