BERNARD HOPKINS doesn't want to be on any pound-for-pound list should he beat Sergey Kovalev. To place him on one of those lists with some of the top fighters in the world would, as he said, make him human. With a 50th birthday approaching in January, Hopkins continues to reaffirm his new nickname of "The Alien. " So there he sat in the Fox Gittis Room inside the Liacouras Center at Temple yesterday, waxing poetic on his age, his upcoming light heavyweight unification bout, boxing history and, of course, pound-for-pound lists.

Somewhere on the path to immortality, Maria Callas and Leonard Bernstein transcended boxed-set recording anthologies. Now they have shrines. For the price of more votive candles than you can count, La Divina (Callas' canonized name) rises again in the 69-disc Maria Callas Complete Studio Recordings , arriving in September with her own artist page on iTunes (a rare tribute in classical circles). And that doesn't include her prized live recordings. Vying with it for shelf space is The Leonard Bernstein Collection, with 60 discs of his later-in-life recordings for Deutsche Grammophon, some overlooked amid the CD frenzy of the 1980s.

  It's been quite a year for Nils Lofgren. In April the guitar virtuoso was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band. And now comes a voluminous box set that celebrates his own work. Face the Music (Fantasy ***1/2) is a 10-disc career retrospective - nine CDs of music and one DVD - that presents the cream of Lofgren's output over nearly five decades, starting with his acclaimed but poor-selling band Grin. "Most of this music has been out of print, much to my disappointment," the 63-year-old Lofgren says from his home in Scottsdale, Ariz.

COWABUNGA! "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" was the No. 1 movie in the nation this weekend with $65 million at the box office. Marvel Studios' "Guardians of the Galaxy" slid into second place in its second weekend with $41.5 million, bringing its total domestic haul to $175.9 million. The total worldwide box office for the cosmic romp stands at $313.2 million. Megan Colligan , Paramount's head of domestic marketing and distribution, said that the success of the "Turtles" reboot was mostly derived from a pair of distinctly different audiences: men who fondly remembered the 1980s and '90s franchise that spawned a cartoon series, toy line and a live-action film trilogy, and youngsters familiar with a newer Nickelodeon animated TV series.

IT LOOKS AS IF the move by Marvel Studios to announce a sequel to "Guardians of the Galaxy" before the movie opened was a winner. The space romp, starring Chris Pratt and Zoe Saldana , earned a whopping $94 million in its debut weekend, according to studio estimates yesterday, blowing away its most optimistic preopening estimate of $75 million. The opening crushes the previous record opening for an August release, the $69.2 million debut of 2007's "The Bourne Ultimatum.

WHAT DOES YOUR weekday work lunch look like? A stale granola bar? A pallid ham-and-cheese from that weirdly lit bodega downstairs? A freezer-burned Lean Cuisine, begging to be tossed across the office like an Olympic discus? A stack of Pringles from the old tube your cubicle mate keeps in his bottom drawer, next to the pushpins and rubber bands? Your average American employee, especially those who sit at a desk in front of a computer, isn't exactly renowned for creativity when it comes to midday meal planning.
