Twenty years ago, she was so unusual with her babydoll voice, neon rainbow hair and equally colorful, bizarre outfits. Today, Cyndi Lauper is 52, the mother of a 7-year-old son named Declyn. But although the hair is one color (bleached blond) and the clothes are far more understated, the native New Yorker is still a little offbeat. Take her latest project, The Body Acoustic. The 12-cut set is essentially a greatest hits collection - but with a twist. Lauper's '80s smashes such as "All Through the Night," "Time After Time" and her signature "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" are recast as all-acoustic jams featuring the artist on the dulcimer.

Younger fans might know her only as one half of WWE's spirited octogenarians, as she and Mae Young were used as comic relief on WWE programming over the past decade. For those who were around when "Hulkamania" was a new phenomenon in 1984, Moolah is remembered for taking part in WWE's first big mainstream angle, wrestling Wendi Richter - managed by pop star Cyndi Lauper --- on MTV. I started following wrestling when I was in elementary school in the mid-1970s, and I have vivid memories of Moolah.

It isn't very hard to engage Dave Sharp, guitarist for The Alarm, in interesting conversation.Just one quick question about almost anything and he's off on his stories of travels and his pursuit of perfect music.A complex figure, Sharp has taken a brief hiatus from his band to perform some solo, acoustic shows. He will be at Max's On Broadway tonight for a special show."All of the rest of my shows have just been me and a guitar," Sharp said. "But the show at Max's will be different because three of my hillbilly friends from New Jersey will be coming down to lend me a hand."

HBO's "Sex and the City" suggests we're not having enough sex, and the sex we're having is in the wrong city. Filmmaker Woody Allen taunts us with his cinematic Central Park strolls. Author Tama Janowitz shuns us for not attending enough avant-garde art openings.It's the same pretentious postcard New York has been sending those who dare live outside the 212 area code for generations: You don't live here, so go shuck corn or something.One may feel a similar attitude attack from the newest harbinger of Big Apple egotism: "From AbFab to Zen: Paper's Guide to Pop Culture," an en-chic-lopedia from the editors of Manhattan-based Paper magazine.
