Craiglist.org, the Internet site full of free classifieds organized by city, is a certifiable phenomenon. I'm hearing Craigslist stories all the time now, including, of course, the one about the "full-service female escorts" who've been flying into BWI to rendezvous with "clients" who hired them through the Web site. The most famous - and far more inspiring - Craigstory is the one about Canadian blogger Kyle MacDonald bartering his way, over the course of a year, from a red paper clip to a house in Saskatchewan.

It's been a long time since Alice Cooper shocked anybody. The guy who invented the rock 'n' roll gross-out game was long ago surpassed by the acts for whom he paved the way -- Marilyn Manson, Slipknot, even Eminem. The 1990s found Cooper making music that was about as methodical as his golf game, and it was easy to get the impression that at this point in life he was happier devoting more energy to the links than to the licks. Brutal Planet and Dragontown were halfhearted stabs at squeezing his muse into a dark industrial-rock box and followed a decade in which he'd tried the same clumsy trick with hair metal.

TAMPA, Fla. -- You know you are getting away from the scripted homogeneity of the Super Bowl when you pass by a table during one of the "personal" interview sessions with 3,000 other reporters and hear a player's voice saying, "My books are didactic."Having spent this week absorbing the standard Super supply of reflections, brilliant and otherwise, including Buffalo quarterback Jim Kelly explaining that "Iraq is fighting because they don't have anything better to do," I knew I had to identify the name that went with the voice.

The "Elm Street" series, now in its sixth chapter with "Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare," is apparently coming to a close before it runs out of gas, thus displaying class not usually found in the horror genre.Having resisted fire, holy water and premature burial in earlier installments, Freddy (Robert Englund) has successfully whittled the population of Springwood, U.S.A., down to a few demented adults (Roseanne and Tom Arnold make brief appearances, as does Alice Cooper) and only one teen-ager, an amnesiac known as John (Shon Greenblatt)
