A man was stabbed in the stomach in Annapolis just after Christmas in a dispute that began over which song should play on a restaurant jukebox, police said. Police found the victim, Adonias Chacon Matute, 33, in the parking lot of the Annapolis Seafood Market in the 1300 block of Forest Drive at about 12:45 a.m. He has been stabbed deeply in the stomach and was badly injured, police said Friday. Matute and other witnesses told police that they and the suspect, Martin Marroquin Rodriguez, 34, of Annapolis, were at LuPita's Restaurant across the street earlier in the evening when they began arguing over music playing on the jukebox.

Hey, "The Walking Dead" is back on AMC! It's been two months since we've been able to spend our Sunday nights watching men and women in tattered clothing brutally slaughtering rotting men and women in even more tattered clothing/skin, unless you happened to catch that one really weird episode of "The Mary Tyler Moore Show" on the Memorable Entertainment network. Sunday night's return - titled "After" - was a very strong showing, in this humble blogger's opinion. If you didn't start getting a little choked up during the scene where little Carl almost has to squeeze the trigger to put down his father, Rick, you might want to be tested to see if you're a serial killer.

Those of us who've turned certain "establishments" into homes away from home have long hoarded a trade secret: If you want to get a quick lowdown on a place, don't bother with endless hours chatting up the regulars, inspecting the bathroom or comparing bar lists and menus.Check out the jukebox.You can learn more about a bar's character, clientele and management from a simple, knowledgeable gander at its Wurlitzer than you can from its appearance (often a mere reflection of the owner's vanity)

On the brightest summer day, the Human Jukebox plays in the darkness of a self-made prison that pays.You will come upon his cardboard box somewhere on a Baltimore street, the mint-green color and the chirps of a wind instrument causing you to stop and stare. You will pore over the selections written in Magic Marker on the front, and the little money slot that says Thank You!, and you'll wonder whether somebody is really in there playing.Try opening the little window at the front of the box to find out what's inside, like catching the Wizard of Oz behind the curtain.

Bob Persh, 47, lingers over the jukebox like a brooding sophomore, holding a soda in one hand while the other waffles over a row of bright red buttons.What record should he play to impress the girl across the room?Whirrr. Click. Clunk. The jukebox stirs, gurgles and offers up A-4, a.k.a. Neil Sedaka."I'm livin' right next door to an angel, and I'm gonna make that angel mine." . . ."The girl smiles as the machine shakes the room as only a jukebox can.With its shiny chrome grill and fluorescent lights, the jukebox, a 1954 Seeburg, evokes memories of malt shops and drive-ins.

It's one of those awful summer nights, where every sticky hot bar is playing a bland blend of pop chart wonder-hits, and the live shows are so dull even the band members are falling asleep. Peeling a few singles from your wallet, you settle down at the jukebox and start flipping through record after record. Then you find it. Bruce Springsteen starts on the speakers, and every pigeon at the bar sings along -- it's cinematic. The jukebox's tune list is just as important as your choice -- both can make or muddle the moment.

There's a new jukebox in town that plays more tunes than most but has no records or CDs inside.It is the most significant advance in coin-operated music players since the compact disc replaced vinyl 45s.Because music is stored on a 4.5-gigabyte computer hard drive, it can be programmed to do things that had been difficult or impossible without the computer.In December, they will offer a selection of Christmas carols.When a new tune shoots up the charts, it can be added to the menu overnight.

As MP3 music players have proliferated, many consumers have been reluctant to invest in yet another music format. And with most of these gadgets limited to about an hour of music, I've seen no need to give up my personal CD player. HanGo's Personal Jukebox 100 (www.pjbox.com) addresses the problem of too little storage in a big way. The 3-inch-by-6-inch device holds the equivalent of 100 compact discs. The secret is a 4.8-gigabyte hard drive. Combine that with pretty good sound and a relatively small package, and I'm ready to whip out the gold card, which is what you'll need to buy it. The PJB-100 is not cool-looking.

With the first beat of the opening number from "Jukebox," the audience roars its approval, as it does for virtually everything that unfolds onstage when Marriotts Ridge High School puts on its zany music and dance revue every October. At least that's what's happened each of the last six years that the original, student-produced extravaganza has been performed, ever since the Marriottsville school opened its doors in 2005. The unconditional love that explodes from the crowd during the opening number flows freely all evening long, organizers say, making "Jukebox" one of the school's most highly anticipated shows.

Someday, if we're lucky, jukebox musicals will go the way of, well, jukeboxes, and creative types will concentrate solely on fashioning fresh plots peppered with brand-new songs. Meanwhile, you might as well join the crowd and revel in the latest and certainly loudest entry in this genre, " Rock of Ages," now showing off its energy and its hair at the Hippodrome . The 2009 Broadway hit celebrates those heady, hard-thumping days of '80s rock, cramming in about 30 songs from the likes of Foreigner, Pat Benatar, Journey, Twisted Sister and Styx.

Marriotts Ridge High School students have grown up at a time when youngsters get entertainment from such devices as iPods, iPhones or iPads. If you asked many from their generation about a jukebox, you would probably hear a tireless refrain: I dunno. But for six years running, fine-arts students at Marriotts Ridge have offered stirring performances centered around the colorfully illuminated, coin-operated phonograph from yesterday. They combine music, dance and drama in the high-energy, student-produced show titled "Jukebox" that has become a school tradition and an annual draw on the Howard County schools calendar.

A black nanny holding a porcelain-skinned infant patiently awaits her mistress' return outside a store in Charleston, S.C. Her stoic expression suggests the stranger snapping pictures, like the child in her arms, is one more burden to be endured. Robert Frank captured this poignant image in the late 1950s while traveling around the country. The Swiss-born photographer later included it in his book The Americans, which appeared exactly 50 years ago and is now the subject of a major exhibition at the National Gallery of Art in Washington.

What would happen if a zombie apocalypse descended on Silver Spring? Karl Ericson recently posed that question on his blog. This weekend, we'll know the answer. Well, sort of. Ericson, a 33-year-old who lives in Silver Spring, helped organize the inaugural Silver Spring Zombie Walk, which takes place Saturday. The event encourages people to dress up as zombies, meet at the Silver Spring bar the Quarry House, stumble around the city for a bit and then reconvene for a showing of Night of the Living Dead at the AFI Silver Theatre.

Suddenly, a Happy Meal doesn't seem like such a brilliant idea. Any schmo can throw a plastic toy in a bag, but it takes genuine passion to open your soul and sing about hash browns, a loyal waitress or a hot cup of joe. So until Ronald McDonald and Mayor McCheese start a garage band to sing about Big Macs, the culturally conscious diner will always opt for a booth near the jukebox at Waffle House, where the syrup and songs both flow sticky and sweet....

In what could be one of the most formidable challenges to Apple Inc.'s iTunes, the owner of MTV is teaming up with Verizon Wireless and RealNetworks Inc. on a new online music service. The service will combine MTV's floundering URGE digital music business with RealNetworks' Rhapsody music subscription business, through which users can access all the music they want online for $12.99 a month and up. In a conference call with reporters yesterday, RealNetworks chief executive Rob Glaser said the revamped Rhapsody is a major step toward creating what he calls a one-of-a-kind "jukebox in the sky" for subscribers using computers, cell phones or other portable devices.
