THE WEEK'S BEST

January 29, 2004

DVD

Robert Rodriquez not only writes and directs his films but also does the cinematography, editing and scoring. Check out his handiwork in Once Upon a Time in Mexico. page 11.

Music

Spoken-word artist Mums has also made his name as an actor, screenwriter, producer, director and poet. Now, he's on the road promoting Strange Fruit, a 12-cut album of hip-hop-influenced lines and smart, uptown jazz. page 23.

Outside

Scuba training -- aka learning to use the Self-Contained Underwater Breathing Apparatus -- can open to the door to other hobbies as well. page 30.

Eats

High standards are obvious at Rivera's, a family-owned Tex-Mex restaurant in a Severna Park shopping strip. It's warm and welcoming, with an extensive menu, page 16.

Art

More than a dozen local and regional artists contributed to the show death, which explores existential boundaries and opens Sunday at Area 405. page 28.
