John Darnielle moved for the first time in seven years last summer. His moves are unique, not just because they're rare, but because they typically precipitate a new musical direction. "For me moving, is always a big opportunity. It's just a enough of a shift in outlook that every time I move, it seems to open something up," he said. When he entered his new living room in Durham, N.C., he found a natural reverb and started writing a song that would become part of his new album, "All Eternals Deck.

People are run down by them, choke on their fumes, and become generally annoyed.But on whose shoulders does this blame really fall? The cars themselves are not the cause, nor even the people who produce them. The real responsibility belongs to the drivers.Imagine how much more pleasant the ride into work would be every day if everyone used turn signals when they were turning or changing lanes and then turned them off when they were finished.

Liza Minnelli is running off to dance class. The singer-actress, in fact, is running late. But at 61, she rarely misses the daily, two-hour lessons. "I've got two new hips. I got a wired-up knee. Oh, God!" she says with a throaty chuckle. Not only does she enjoy dancing, but the rigorous steps keep her in shape. "The key is to keep moving." In recent years, Minnelli has been sidetracked temporarily by well-publicized trips to rehab and a contentious divorce from concert promoter David Gest.

NEW YORK -- Here is a happy thought for all you girly girls out there. You can't own too much pink. And the most important accessory, according to the New York Fashion Week that ended Friday, was rose-colored glasses. So just keep thinking that high-heel stilettos don't hurt. And the world is a light and bright place, as long as your skirt swishes when you walk. Michael Kors was inspired by the leisure life in Capri. Anna Sui, the quintessential pop-rock lady, took cues from the little surfer girl.
