CARACAS, Venezuela -- The driving is easy. The road is smooth. And then, suddenly, the car spins and swirls out of control as it skates along a layer of goo that mysteriously covers highways here.Venezuelans call the goo La Mancha Negra -- the black stain -- but it's really more like a blob, a thick black sludge with the consistency of chewing gum. No one knows where it comes from. No one knows how to get rid of it.Some say it's oil from lousy asphalt. Others say it's oil from car engines.

You know the Goo Goo Dolls' hits: "Name," "Long Way Down," "Slide," "Black Balloon" and, of course, the once-ubiquitous ballad from the "City of Angels" soundtrack, "Iris. " But what about the less popular album cuts? Like any band with material spanning decades, the Goo Goo Dolls have hidden gems in their catalog. Here are five worth seeking out. "On the Lie" (from 1993's "Superstar Car Wash") It's mainly a strange back-and-forth conversation between a man and woman, but this song highlights Rzeznik's ability to craft unique - and even mysterious - characters.

Summer is a lazy, relaxed, carefree time of year, when our thoughts turn to the possibility that our flesh will be stripped from our bones by millions of razor-sharp mandibles. At least my thoughts do, ever since a gang of ants started a colony somewhere in my office, which is located in my home in South Florida. (In fact, for tax purposes, this office occupies 248 percent of my home's square footage). Here's the situation: I'll be sitting in my usual work position, in which I put my feet up on my desk.

John Rzeznik, lead singer of the Goo Goo Dolls, should know a thing or two about wedding songs. He wrote the inescapable hit "Iris" in 1998, which plenty of newly married couples have played for their first dance, including, most famously, singer Avril Lavigne in 2006. And yet, for his own upcoming wedding in July, Rzeznik has no clue what song he and his fiance, Melina Gallo, will dance to. "I'm just happy that I'm getting married. I'm looking forward to it, but I'm still a guy," Rzeznik said from his Los Angeles home recently.

KAI KRAUSE has been hailed as a "demo god" for his stunning public demonstrations of his powerful professional graphic arts programs. Kai's Power Goo (from Metatools Inc., for PTC Windows 95 and Macintosh, at about $50), his latest design, is his first aimed at a more mainstream audience, including children. Although it received wild applause at early public showings, Goo demonstrates that there is more to software than the way it looks in demonstrations.There is nothing else quite like Goo. A strange marriage of sophisticated computer graphics and fingerpainting, it basically gives your computer a collection of precise tools that you use like fun-house mirrors to distort and manipulate images in ways even caricaturists might find bizarre.

In the mid-'90s, after nine years of unsuccessfully slogging through the indie rock scene, Goo Goo Dolls singer Johnny Rzeznik set a personal deadline. If the Goo Goo Dolls still weren't making money by the time he turned 30, Rzeznik would go back to college and pursue a normal life. He cut it close: Rzeznik was 29 1/2 when his ballad "Name" lit up the charts in 1995 and became the elusive hit he'd been looking for all those years. Rzeznik was blind-sided. "I was like, 'You've got to be kidding me,' especially with the song that broke us, which was a ballad," he said.

You know him, you love him - Tom Hanks!" said David Letterman on Monday night as he called the Everyman superstar to the stage. But how well do we know him? What makes Tom Hanks run? That question races through your mind during the technologically phenomenal yet otherwise middling antics of Angels & Demons, the sequel to The Da Vinci Code. Although it's come out second, it's based on the first Dan Brown thriller to center on Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon, an academic with a habit of butting heads with zealots.

My brother-in-law sent me an e-mail about how to remove ticks. It was attributed to a school nurse who suggested applying a glob of liquid soap to a cotton ball and covering the tick with the cotton ball for 20 seconds. Presumably, when you remove the cotton ball, the tick will come out and be stuck to the cotton ball. Is this a good way to remove ticks? We are having a bumper crop this year. According to Snopes.com, this e-mail has been circulating on the Internet for more than two years.

The MTV generation is alive and well in Utah, mostly in the form of sassy teen-agers who wait in line to take turns singing on a tiny stage to the latest pop tunes from Total Request Live. At night, a star-studded lineup of performers - including Macy Gray, Barenaked Ladies, Train, Nelly Furtado, Goo Goo Dolls and Creed - has gyrated well past curfew, but despite Salt Lake City Mayor Rocky Anderson's best efforts, the events were forced to remain alcohol-free because they're on Mormon church property.
