Anyone still complaining about the lack of good original local music hasn't been to Armadillo's on Sunday nights to hear the haunting guitar riffs and anything but generic vocals of Underfoot.For the bargain-basement price of a buck, dozens of people pack the upstairs bar area each week to hear the Annapolis-based threesome crank out intense, rolling melodies that suggest psychedelic sounds at certain points and monastic chants at others.Singer-songwriter Brian Wagoner, bassist Dana Biagini and drummer Noel White create an array of sounds.

He grew up in South Florida, so naturally, Antwan Barnes had a lot more familiarity with reptiles. Copperheads, cottonmouths and water mocs. Iguanas, 'gators and croc's. When he got to Baltimore as the Ravens' fourth-round draft choice of 2007, though, Barnes kept hearing about a different sort of varmint. Then the Ravens' defensive coordinator, Rex Ryan since has become known for some of the peculiar stuff he comes up with, but one of his sayings in Baltimore became a sort of mammal motto.

Entering his second year as the Ravens' defensive coordinator, Greg Mattison says little has changed, but some of his players disagree. They notice a more comfortable and confident Mattison, one willing to take more chances. There remains one constant, though. "He's a tough guy, has skin like an armadillo," defensive tackle Kelly Gregg said. The transition of a year ago was a huge success for Mattison, 60. The Ravens survived a shaky first quarter of the season, especially in pass defense, and finished 2009 ranked No. 3 overall, the seventh straight year the Ravens' defense has finished in the top six. The Ravens also had the NFL's best run defense, allowing only 3.4 yards per carry, were ranked fourth in turnover ratio (plus 10)

TEX-MEX food has become tiresome to me. Too much cheese and sour cream. Too much shredded lettuce and beans. Too much Texas braggadocio. You get the picture. So it was with a heavy heart that I took two friends to Armadillo's Tex-Mex Cafe, which opened two months ago in Fells Point. I couldn't make excuses any longer; duty called. The restaurant's cheerful yellow exterior and striped awning looked appealing, at least. Inside, there were cheese and beans on the menu all right, even sour cream and some Texas-style paraphernalia hanging on the walls.

You're a young, good-looking insurance adjuster who's making huge bucks and more or less has life in London by the tail when one day you show up for a routine interview and the guy you were supposed to meet is hanging from a water pipe. Take note, this is not a good omen. That's what happens to Lorimer Black (James Frain) in Armadillo, an A&E adaptation of William Boyd's best seller, and Black's life rapidly starts deconstructing from the moment he sees the corpse. Black, full of the arrogance of youth and boundless energy of a young man on the make, is one of the last to notice the downward spiral.

* Editor's note: One boy learns to be more careful about what he wishes for. "Give some crayons to your sister," Gus's mother yelled from the kitchen. "Or I'll take them all away and no one will draw." Wendy reached for the box of crayons. "Mom said to share." Gus frowned as Wendy took the Rose Red, Boo-Hoo Blue and Slick Silver crayons. He watched as she reached for a sheet of paper. "Go get your own," he said, slamming his hand down on the pile. Wendy stuck out her tongue and walked across the room.

Keeping a tiger in the living room may soon be harder than it once was. And chickens clucking in the front yard? Not without a permit. Under a proposal introduced yesterday in the Baltimore City Council, owners of farm and exotic animals would have to get a permit from the city's Health Department to keep their pets. The Health Department received 110 complaints in the past year from neighbors upset over unusual pets, said Baltimore's acting commissioner of health, Francine J. Childs. Now the agency wants the authority to enforce the city code that requires owners to properly care for those animals.

The Chesapeake Bay is known for its festival of fish: striped bass, croakers, spot, white perch. But every so often, something crashes the party - like a sturgeon. Zan Baughn, a Towson resident who has been fishing on the bay for more than four decades, reeled in a 45-inch Atlantic sturgeon while trolling off Love Point on Saturday. Federal and state biologists who positively identified the fish called the catch unusual. "They're rare," says Mike Mangold of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
