Halfway through the Black Eyed Peas' live show, rapper Taboo hops on a neon-glowing motorcycle and, using suspension wires, rides it out above the crowd — all while singing "Rockin' to the Beat. " "You never expect a flying motorcycle to hover over your head during the show," he said. "It takes the show to a different level. " Inspired by the '80s movie "Tron," the motorcycle is one of the more eyebrow-raising moments in a concert that's loaded with dizzying lights, props and special effects.

It's supposedly good for you to eat pork or cabbage or black-eyed peas at New Year's, and for my last post of the year I offer you this recipe for “caviar” made with black-eyed peas. It's a variant of a recipe for the 1970s in a Time-Life book that The Sun published in 2000. It has been quite serviceable for the holiday in our house. Here are a couple of things to consider. Dried black-eyed peas are better than canned, because you can have more control over whether they get mushy.

Don't hate 'em. Although their latest album features the platinum-selling, "b-boy" style-appropriating Justin Timberlake, the Black Eyed Peas have not sold out with their third CD, Elephunk. The group simply wanted to expand its sound and its reach. In other words, the critically loved underground hip-hop trio with two commercially overlooked albums under its belt wants to sell records. And there's nothing wrong with that, says group member Taboo. The musical freshness fans have come to expect from BEP still pulsates through Elephunk.

DVD Crossing Over * 1/2 (1 1/2 stars) Starring Harrison Ford, Ashley Judd, Ray Liotta. Directed by Wayne Kramer. Released by the Weinstein Co. $19.98. In what has become the preferred fall-back formula for message movies coming out of Hollywood these days, a group of disparate Los Angelenos, with vague connections to one another, grapple with U.S. immigration policy and its repercussions (think Crash, but focused on illegal immigrants). The result is a hodgepodge of ill-developed story lines that trip over one another in their attempt to tug at the audience's empathetic heartstrings.

Musician will.i.am might be the only pop artist who can make comparing a woman to a farm animal seem like nice, clean fun. The Black Eyed Peas' idea man exudes frantic goodwill, even when he's cramming his productions with unsubtle hooks and tricks or building party anthems around the most juvenile rhymes since the members of Kriss Kross hung up their backward coats. His schizophrenic charisma is evident throughout Songs About Girls, his first proper solo album (in stores this week). It's really two albums in one: an experiment in introspection and a full-body grab for more hits.

People endlessly complain that Hollywood is full of dopey, superficial films bereft of anything new to say. And they're right. Anyone looking for art that is edgy or relevant - and inspires comment - is turning to Internet video, which has become the true engine driving our pop culture. Nothing demonstrates this better than the viral success of Alanis Morissette's "My Humps," which surfaced a few weeks ago on YouTube and quickly became the most popular video on the channel, attracting 5.5 million views, easily outdistancing such rivals as "Otters Holding Hands."
