They're still the way you remember them. Sort of. If you were around in the early '80s and tuned into this new channel called MTV, then you know all about Duran Duran: five stylish British guys who always looked coolly detached and glamorous. The band was among the first acts to exploit the video medium, using grand cinematic styles. Remember the video for "Rio"? The dudes were jet-setting playboys. And in the clip for "Hungry Like the Wolf," they were great adventurers reminiscent of something out of Raiders of the Lost Ark. And, yes, there was the music: synth-heavy and lyrically ambiguous.

They are selling better than 300 sets a day from coast to coast, with a heavy concentration in the South, and there is no sign of a slowdown.

You can take away its starting quarterback for four games, remove its leading tackler for two. You can even throw a Division I-AA opponent in its path, or give it the worst possible field position. Nothing bothers the Johns Hopkins football team.The Blue Jays extended their winning streak to six games last night, driving 99 yards to score the go-ahead touchdown in a 7-3 victory over Georgetown in the rain at Homewood Field.Strong safety Rob McGuire (71 tackles) couldn't play because of an eye injury, but the Blue Jays defense didn't blink.

ON AND OFF THE AIR:* Cable viewers have learned to expect anything from the increasing number of original movies on a variety of services, for they range from the thoroughly excellent to the awful. Put "Dead on the Money" down toward the latter half of that equation. The movie debuts at 8 tonight on the basic TNT channel.It actually seems pretty promising at start, a light-hearted mystery with some bounce. But by a preposterous and confusing climax, viewers would be justified in wishing for truth in advertising by renaming the film, "Dead on Conclusion."
