When the Band performed its "Last Waltz," its final live performance, on Thanksgiving 1976, Rolling Stone magazine groused at length on the ticket price - $25, which included a five-hour, all-star concert, an all-you-can-eat turkey meal and postshow ballroom dancing. Today, $25 is likely to get you two tickets to the rerelease of "The Last Waltz" and a small Coke. Which is not to say it's not worth it (though you might want to save your money for the impending, goody-filled DVD release)

Beck is on the phone from his home in Los Angeles' Silverlake section, describing the mood of the sessions that led to his new acoustic disc, Mutations (DGC). He's using words like relaxed and siesta, but every now and then he can't disguise his irritation. Seems there's a lawn jockey with a leaf blower cranked up to 11 next door. "That thing is obnoxious," he says finally, as he escapes to a different room. Seconds later, the wheezing motor returns. "He's following me! I can't get away from it. " Oh, the postmodern predicament: Beck Hansen, the whiz-kid of the attention-deficit generation, whose sonic trademarks include vacuum cleaners pumped through guitar amps and tracks cobbled from random noise and crunching clutter, rendered speechless by a little bitty leaf blower.

It is near the end of Nik Everett's first set at the Rusty Nail, an Ardmore bar notable for its home-handyman decor and utter lack of pretension. The place is crammed with young fans and middle-aged drinkers left over from happy hour, and the quintet has just finished the hard-charging original "Surrender Tonight. " Towering over an unelevated bandstand so tiny it makes a phone booth look luxurious, Everett dedicates the next song to his grandmother. She doesn't much like rock and roll, he says.

How does one capture the horrors of war? What medium is most felicitous? A poem, say, Wilfred Owen's "Anthem for Doomed Youth"? Or oils, brushes, and canvas - the ingredients of Picasso's Guernica? How about a cartoon? That's one of the questions raised by this year's One Film, One Philadelphia selection, Waltz With Bashir, a Golden Globe-winning 2008 animated war memoir by Israeli filmmaker Ari Folman. An annual visual literacy program copresented by the Greater Philadelphia Film Office and the Free Library of Philadelphia, One Film offers more than a dozen screenings, discussion panels, and workshops at various venues across Philadelphia through March 17. One Film program assistant Sara Strickland said Waltz was a natural choice.

Every Sunday at Cinnaminson Baptist Church, the Rev. William Waltz welcomes his congregants before the service and says farewell with friendly words and handshakes as they leave. Yesterday's service, however, was different. Along with the regular congregants, Mr. Waltz welcomed more than 100 guests: uniformed police officers, firefighters and emergency personnel from Cinnaminson, Palmyra and Riverton. Red, White and Blue Sunday was a special service to honor men and women who risk their lives every day to help others.

Is Andre Rieu the pied piper of music or a shameless shlockmeister? The maestro of the waltz or the shmaltz king? The reincarnation of 1860s Vienna megastar Johann Strauss Jr. or the second coming of Liberace? The public has decided. While the critics cringe at his enormous popularity and flamboyant style, Rieu's shows light up the Channel 12 telephone lines during pledge breaks. He appears in concert at 8 p.m. Thursday with the Johann Strauss Orchestra at the CoreStates Center.

My husband is an avid fisherman and hunter, and has always expressed a desire to go out West or to Canada on a fishing excursion or big-game hunting trip. However, he doesn't know how to go about finding guides. There are probably thousands of guides and outfitters for fishing and hunting trips in the United States and Canada, so information on their location is scattered. A good place to start is with state travel and tourism offices (usually located in the state capital)

Can't dance? Blame mom. Researchers at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, wouldn't state it quite that way. But their new study shows an intriguing connection between the bouncy-bouncy knee thing that mothers do with their infants and babies' ability to respond to musical rhythm. In an experiment with a rather whimsical feel, McMaster doctoral candidate Jessica Phillips-Silver, who hails from Philadelphia, set seven-month-old infants on her lap, one by one. A recording of a flat six-beat pattern was played while Phillips-Silver bounced the 16 babies to one of two distinctive beats - either march (ONE two, ONE two)

If 80 is the new 60, then what will retirement look like in the future? As we live longer, the definition of old is changing. Americans generally feel that for their parents' generation, 62 was the age when someone became old, as it was also close to traditional retirement age. A September 2013 UBS Investor Watch report (the company tackles different topics every quarter), based on a survey of 2,319 U.S. investors with at least $250,000 in investable assets, found that only 31 percent of respondents in their 60s and 47 percent of respondents in their 70s said they felt old, while 77 percent of those in their 80s did. Social Security's latest data tend to back this up. According to its 2014 Trustees Report, even the average 65-year-old can expect to live 20 more years.

ALL GOOD THINGS come to an end. The Wise Guys could cry about that, but they'd really rather sing. On Sunday, the Wise Guys - eight intellectually disabled adults who have been singing, dancing and rocking out almost as long as Aerosmith - will hold a farewell concert at the Cardinal Krol Center. Owned by the Philadelphia Archdiocese, it's a residential community in Springfield, Delaware County, where the Wise Guys live with more than 100 other men similarly impaired. The center is closing, the men to be dispersed to small group homes.

Give the Band credit. When the Canadian avatars of American roots-rock decided to call it a day, they nailed it in grand fashion. On Thanksgiving Day 1976, Levon Helm, Richard Manuel, Rick Danko, Robbie Robertson, and Garth Hudson held "The Last Waltz" at San Francisco's Winterland Ballroom. The Band played their faces off with the usual Dixie-down aplomb, and backed guests including Bob Dylan, Joni Mitchell, and Muddy Waters with vigor while Martin Scorsese filmed the bittersweet celebration for a concert documentary of the same name.

Ask any bartender: Aside from New Year's Eve, the Night before Turkey is the busiest party night of the year. And the post-turkey weekend gobbles like crazy, too. Folks returning to their hometown for family Thanksgiving visits are trolling for a little fun with their erstwhile homies. Marrieds-with-kids find sitters and hit the town. College kids do what college kids will do. And there are those who just want to get lubricated before and/or after Thursday's turkey-centric blowout - some all the way until they hit the road/train/plane on Sunday.

These three long-serving Yankees - Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, and Andy Pettitte - may finally be facing their last waltz. They won four World Series titles from 1996 to 2000 and a fifth when they beat the Phillies in 2009. (They also appeared in the Series in 2001 and 2003.) This year, however, Jeter is hurt, and Rivera plans to retire at season's end. What the core players did: Nobody has done it better than Jeter, Rivera, and Pettitte. Before 2009, the trio won the Series in 2000, 1999, 1998, and 1996.
