PASADENA, Calif. -- The last time I saw Larry Hagman was at his Malibu beach house, and he was just about to pass out drunk.He was at the height of his fame as J.R. Ewing on "Dallas," and he was sitting there with a big white Stetson on his head and a drink in his hand, staring out at the Pacific Ocean as a band played Bob Wills' "Faded Love.""Another ------ day in ------ paradise," Hagman said to me.When I turned to answer, he was out cold. A woman wearing a flag-of-Texas bikini bottom assured me that Hagman was OK and asked me to help her make him comfortable by putting some pillows under him on the couch.

Paul will sit down with new head coach Monty Williams , new general manager Dell Demps and team President Hugh Weber in New Orleans, the person told the Associated Press on Thursday. The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the team had not made plans to meet with Paul public, and because Paul has not publicly demanded a trade.

Phew! They did it!  They survived week one of "Top Chef," Season 11. Chef Patty was crying over the experience, which didn't win her any points in chef Stephanie's book -- she insisted  she'll only cry when she is kicked off. Hmm, foreshadowing? Let's start a tally now of how many times either chef Patty or Chef Stephanie cries. So far, the score is 1-0. Time to open the bottles of real wine (not cooking wine), pour a glass, kick back and revel in their awesomeness.

I n 30 years of writing about television, I have never heard music used as organically, wisely and powerfully as it is in the new HBO drama, "Treme," from Baltimore writer David Simon and playwright Eric Overmyer. The 80-minute pilot episode opens on a street parade and closes on a funeral procession. The former, with its screaming brass, syncopated bass drum and snake-hipped dancers, lifted me out of my seat and instantly transported me into the bombed-out landscape of post-Katrina New Orleans, where the series is set. The latter, with its dirgelike, slower-than-the-slowest-rhythm-you-can-imagine version of "A Closer Walk with Thee," touched me in a psychic place that has nothing to do with rational thought, criticism or even words.

Ravens fans in New Orleans clearly out numbers fans from San Francisco. The 49ers fans have come on in the last day or so, but the numbers are still in the Ravens' favor. While walking on the boardwalk last night, where several bands played throughout the evening, there were many Ray Lewis and Joe Flacco jerseys. City officials here apparently have spent a lot of money on security as police helicopters and boat patrols circled the river throughout the night. It's hard to get any place in New Orleans without bumping into Ravens fans.

A few comments on your editorial "We built that" (Sept. 3): Hurricane Katrina was not the cause of the massive devastation, destruction and deaths in New Orleans these seven years ago. Rather, it was the failure of the man-made levees and floodwalls built and maintained by the Army Corps of Engineers. There is admissions now from the corps that the blame it originally placed on the city and state was unfounded. That truth being said, it is to the corps' credit that the $14.5 billion investment in flood control after Katrina performed as planned.

The life of an artist takes you places far and wide. For 31-year-old Graham Coreil-Allen, it has taken him from Galveston, Texas, to New Orleans and Brooklyn, N.Y., before he ended up in Baltimore. Coreil-Allen has been focused on his ongoing art series entitled New Public Spaces. His goal is to develop projects that push pedestrian agencies to redesign and find use for under-recognized public spaces within cities and suburbs. Along with these projects, Coreil-Allen designs public art pieces, such as large-scale hopscotch courts and interactive neighborhood maps.

The phenomenon known as the pop-up dinner, in which nontraditional spaces are converted into short-term dining venues, has been around for a few years. But a quickly expanding company named Dinner Lab is bringing what originally was a haphazard practice to a professional scale. And Baltimore is among the newest markets for the New Orleans-based company. Dinner Lab will make its official Baltimore debut on Aug. 15. The company is now enrolling subscribers for its series of dining events, each of which showcases a single chef who creates a multicourse menu for the dinner.

There is a jambalaya entree at Ethel's Creole Kitchen that you have to have. By that, I mean pick up the phone and make a reservation. As prepared in Ed Bloom's Mount Washington kitchen, the jambalaya is the kind of dish that makes you realize that just about everyone else gets it wrong. Jambalaya isn't a quick-fix dish, where you dump a bunch of seafood and sausage over yellow rice. It's a slow-baked affair, made aromatic by the addition of a mirepoix - the Cajun's combination of chopped celery, onion and carrots - and made delicious by the confident application of first-rate seafood, tender chicken and pan-seared sausage.

The Ravens' 8-8 record last year, and the third-place schedule that comes with it for the 2014 season, could have been an advantage over division rivals Pittsburgh and Cincinnati.    Upon Wednesday night's release of the 2014 schedule , it appears some of those advantages have been mitigated.   Cincinnati's schedule is similar to the Ravens', save for two opponents, but the Ravens' and Steelers' schedules are essentially flipped. If the Ravens travel to a non-divisional opponent in the two crossover divisions, the AFC South and NFC South, the Steelers get them at home.

A voice called out, "Cameras ready. " Another voice responded, "Sound. " Then a third: "Action. " With that, the Everyman Theatre Film Studios came to life one recent morning. OK, not a real film studio, but awfully close. An upstairs space at Everyman's Fayette Street building was transformed into a genuine movie-producing facility as part of the process of putting the company's next production onto the stage. "By the Way, Meet Vera Stark," a comic/serious work from 2011 by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Lynn Nottage, is receiving its Baltimore/Washington premiere.

When historians look back on the Ravens' 2012 season, they will remember offensive coordinator Cam Cameron being fired and replaced by Jim Caldwell. They will talk about quarterback Joe Flacco's clutch performances in the postseason and how star linebacker Ray Lewis's decision to retire inspired this team. But the best move came two weeks ago when Ravens coach John Harbaugh inserted Bryant McKinnie at left offensive tackle, moved Michael Oher to right tackle and rookie Kelechi Osemele to left guard.

What is nearly as remarkable as Jenny Campbell's costumes - the glittering swirls of ribbon and whirling snow globe headdresses - is the path that led to her second career as a costume maker. The Baltimore native taught herself to make costumes a few years ago, creating extravagant outfits for parades, bar crawls and parties at the American Visionary Art Museum . Now Campbell spends her days buried in silk and sequins at the Southern Costume Co. in New Orleans, designing, selecting feathers and fabrics, and sewing elaborate, gravity-defying outfits.
