Pete Geist does not speak for most of his show. Instead of using dialogue and punch lines, the comedian relies on music, oversized props and audience participation to entertain. "What I am doing is a combination of circus skills, juggling, magic, pantomime and physical comedy," he said. "I make people laugh by using body and facial expressions." He brings his most-popular show - "GEIST: Visual Comedian" - to Columbia for a 7:30 p.m. show tomorrow at Slayton House in Wilde Lake. His show is family-friendly and features exaggerated movements to a variety of musical genres with colorful props and costuming.

Mallards moved from the shoreline toward the safety of open water, where bass, bluegill and stripers dimpled the surface.Geist stopped the truck, shifted a toothpick from one side of his mouth to the other and smiled.

When Tom Sutton paid $770,000 for a 20-acre slice of Baltimore County's horse country, he saw just one problem -- its low-slung Colonial didn't quite match the rolling pasture, tennis courts, pool and small barn on the property.So Sutton asked county firefighters to burn the house down, clearing the way for a new one.Last weekend's controlled destruction of the 12-room house on Geist Road has made Sutton the talk in John Brown's general store, at cocktail parties and across telephone lines.

Alban Berg's Violin Concerto, which was inscribed "to the memory of an angel," began as requiem for the composer's 18-year-old friend, the sweet and beautiful Manon Gropius. But it ended as a requiem for Berg himself, who was dying as he completed the work, and perhaps for civilization as well. As his letters to the more fortunate friends who had already left Germany demonstrate, the composer was sick of heart because of the epidemic caused by the release of the viruses of madness and hate in 1933.
