You can now refer to Brian May as "Sir Brian May." The Queen guitarist was knighted by King Charles Tuesday at Buckingham Palace. The British government said May was being for both "his contribution to music" and for "his ongoing charity work." It's not Queen's first royal honor. Back in 2005, May was honored as a Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire. Queen drummer Roger Taylor was honored in 2020 as an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire.


"Ted Lasso" is back for a third season. The hit comedy stars Jason Sudeikis as an American football coach hired to manage a British soccer team; what he lacks in knowledge, he makes up for in optimism, determination and biscuits. All new episodes of season three are available for streaming today. Sudeikis says season three will likely be the last season. "Ted Lasso" has won the Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy two years in a row. It's available only on Apple TV Plus.


Illusionist David Blaine is recovering after suffering an injury during a performance in Las Vegas. It happened while Blaine was jumping into a pile of boxes from about 80 feet above. Blaine can be seen on video falling into the boxes and then can be heard screaming in pain. He suffered a dislocated shoulder that was put back into place on site and is reportedly doing well. David Blaine's Las Vegas performances are still set to continue in April, May and June.


Any resemblance between a 70s rock band and TV show about a fictional 70s rock band is far less than a coincidence. The Amazon series "Daisy Jones and the Six" is based on a novel by Taylor Jenkins Reid. Reid acknowledges that much of the inspiration for the book came from the Fleetwood Mac song "Silver Springs." The track describes Stevie Nicks' perspective on the ending of the romantic relationship between her and Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham. She has said "we were in Maryland somewhere driving under a freeway sign that said Silver Springs (sic), Maryland." And, minor point here, I grew up in that city just outside of DC--it is actually called Silver Spring--singular.


A reluctant superhero returns to movie theaters this weekend. Zachary Levi is Shazam in "Shazam: Fury of the Gods," which is aiming to take first place at this weekend's box office. The sequel film is projected to make between 35 and 40-million dollars in its opening weekend. The first "Shazam!" in 2019 wound up making 366-million dollars around the globe. It's the only new film making its debut this weekend and it's projected to knock "Scream 6" from its first place throne.


A Florida man is accused of trying to steal a whole lot of seafood. Court documents say David Subil pretended to work for Safeway and Albertsons, ordering over 432-thousand dollars' worth of Russian king crab and Opilio crab. He allegedly sent false purchase orders to Arctic Seafoods, in California, and they sent the shipment to a storage facility north of Seattle. Subil loaded the seafood into a truck, but the payment didn't go through. Subil was located by deputies at a weigh station and arrested. He had a one-way ticket from Miami International Airport to Medellin, Columbia.
