Inspector Clouseau is the world’s only known pink manta ray, first spotted in 2015. Named for the inspector in the Pink Panther movies, sightings of Clouseau are incredibly rare. That’s what makes this most recent close-up photo, captured by photographer Kristian Laine off Australia’s Lady Elliot Island, so special. Laine told Australian Geograph...

Video premiere: Bebopalula, ‘Coloring Book’

L.A. quartet Bebopalula don’t call themselves a band, but a songwriting collective — four guys with solid bona fides whose music is rooted in, but certainly not constrained by, tradition. Sixties guys at heart, they stretch the boundaries of what history has pigeonholed as power-pop, adding their own paisley flourishes with skill, precision and no small amount of (what some would call impish) enthusiasm. “Coloring Book,” the first single from the quartet’s long-in-the-works debut album, puts the...

Perron Earned His Spot on the All-Star Team

Although the fans voted David Perron on to the All-Star roster, there are several reasons the St. Louis Blues forward earned the honor.
