Kris Kristofferson at the Ryman, 9/13/14

The Spin digs conceptual art, so we were fascinated with Kris Kristofferson's solo acoustic show Saturday night at the Ryman. His performance was a benefit for the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum, and it went beyond the usual singer-songwriter conventions - cult of personality, minimal accompaniment, unstudied vocal approach, and the like - into a sphere all its own.

"The View," a once noble experiment that has turned into the world's most contentious tea party, tries to steady the ship with the addition of two new hosts, political analyst Nicole Wallace and actress Rosie Perez. Wallace, who worked in the George W. Bush administration, is a bit of a wild card, but Perez, right - always a great guest on talk shows - should be a natural.

White Guys Still Get Best Bible Roles

Despite a larger presence of Middle Eastern actors in Hollywood, sword and sandal Biblical flicks too often "whitewash" their casts in a quest for box office payoff. No one really knows what Moses looked like, but chances are if you've ever thought about the guy who parted the Red Sea, it's pretty certain the actor who played Batman didn't come to mind.

Asteroid-mining race starts with few laws in place

If "Titanic" director James Cameron were to dig up a giant gold nugget on an asteroid, would it be his to take back to Earth and sell? U.S. and international law are just a bit unclear on this point, and as a result two members of Congress have introduced legislation - the Asteroids Act - on which the House planned to hold hearings this week. For a Congress often criticized for not being farsighted enough, this might be thinking too far ahead.
