Jimmy Fallon has a recurring bit on The Tonight Show called “Do Not Play,” in which he highlights “some real songs from real bands that I think you should avoid.” A few months ago, he featured a song by the obscure Slint dance-funk offshoot King Kong. And last week, he made fun of The Peter Brötzmann Sextet / Quartet‘s 1969 free jazz album Nipples, joking that it “sounds like a Guitar Center on a busy Saturday.”

2021 Summer Box Office Was Up 893 Percent — But Pump The Brakes On The Celebration

It is absolutely no secret that the summer moviegoing season last year was virtually non-existent. The pandemic all but obliterated what is usually the busiest time of the year for Hollywood.

But there is some good news! The box office for summer 2021 was up a shocking (on the surface) 893 percent compar...
