One in a series of occasional articles. Hearses enter the six-story building in West Baltimore through garage doors that snap open and shut quickly, to keep business discreet. Researchers who work across from the $43 million Forensic Medical Center catch glimpses of the drop-offs. They call the state-of-the-art center on the edge of the University of Maryland BioPark "the Bat Cave. " The morgue - shrouded in myth, misrepresented on screen - typically is portrayed as a dark, dank basement with sexy forensic investigators peering into microscopes, eccentric doctors weighing body parts, and officials pulling open refrigerated drawers, unzipping body bags and asking spouses: "Is this your husband?"

'Edward Scissorhands'Starring Johnny Depp and Winona Ryder.Directed by Tim Burton.Released by Twentieth Century Fox.Rated PG-13.** 1/2 If you have scissors for hands, shoelaces are out. So is typing, the piano, and, presumably, foreplay. On the other hand, there's money to be made in topiary, hair and pet grooming.It's exactly this kind of attention to practical detail, at the expense of larger issues, that gives Tim Burton's "Edward Scissorhands" its Zeitgeist of craziness. Is it ever wacky, or what?

KMFDMAdios (Wax Trax! TVT 7258)After the tragedy at Columbine High School in Littleton, Colo., pundits grasping to explain why Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold slaughtered 12 classmates and a teacher immediately seized upon the interests that made the two "different." As is always the case with scary teen-agers, much was made of Harris and Klebold's taste in music -- particularly their fondness for the underground German band KMFDM.The irony was that even as KMFDM was getting its dubious moment in the limelight, the band was preparing to call it quits.

These days, the concert business is going south -- literally. As more and more shows bypass Baltimore for Virginia-area venues, local music fans are having to drive farther and farther to see shows.Over the summer, the Nissan Pavilion at Stone Ridge, just outside Manassas, wound up booking most of the season's biggest bills, from No Doubt and Fleetwood Mac to festivals like H.O.R.D.E. and Lollapalooza. But even after the Nissan Pavilion shuts down (Tim McGraw closes out the season this evening)

TwoVoyeurs (Nothing/Interscope 90155)Stabbing WestwardDarkest Days (Columbia 68006)Influence is a funny thing. Celine Dion may be the most listened-to voice in the world right now, but her music has had almost no effect on the prevailing tides in popular music. Nine Inch Nails, by contrast, remains essentially a cult act, yet its work has shaped and inspired the sound of countless rock acts, from Marilyn Manson to Filter.How has NIN - or its mastermind, Trent Reznor - come to exert such influence?

WICHITA, Kan. -- Despite scoring six goals in an 8-6 loss to Wichita last night, the Baltimore Blast still is looking for some consistent scoring.Baltimore took a 4-2 lead midway through the second period, but managed just two more goals. Including a 7-3 loss to Dallas in its opener, the Blast fell to 0-2."We're not hitting the target," said coach Kenny Cooper. "You'd think with six goals, you could win. This could easily have been a 10-all game."I think the turning point for me was the power play, when we had a chance to build a lead and get some momentum," he said, referring to a power play early in the second half, when the Blast got only two shots off."
