The 29-year-old has penned songs with titles such as "I Used to Have a Heart," "Hate Everyone" and the tongue-in-cheek "I Will Never Write an Obligatory Song About Being on the Road and Missing Someone," which includes the chorus, "I want my baby back. " So when Bemis married another singer, Sherri DuPree-Bemis of the band Eisley, in 2009, he faced a new kind of dilemma.

When Yo Gotti comes to Baltimore, he feels at home. The 30-year-old rapper from Memphis, Tenn., says Charm City reminds him of his gritty hometown. "I like what the city stands for," said Gotti, who performs at Baltimore Soundstage on Sunday. "It's real people doing real [things]. It's no Hollywood" stuff. For any rap fan that has followed Yo Gotti's career - which began in 2000 with the independent rap album "From Da Dope Game 2 Da Rap Game" - his blue collar attitude should come as no surprise.

If the story of the electronic book became a Hollywood flick, it would probably be called "The Gizmo That Wouldn't Die." Two years after making its splashy debut, the device once hyped as the paperback's worst nightmare has turned out to be a technology more people read about than read on. Sales of the first two electronic books, the compact Rocket eBook and the heftier Softbook Reader, were sluggish. Critics complained the devices were too pricey, too hard to find, and just weren't as cozy to curl up with as good old paper.

The statistic that stands out for Peyton Manning this season isn't the eight touchdown passes he has thrown for the Indianapolis Colts during their 5-0 start, or that he has been intercepted only twice going into Sunday's home game against the 2-4 Washington Redskins at the RCA Dome. It's that Manning has rushed for two touchdowns after having none the previous three seasons and only nine in his first eight years. Is Manning, known for his accurate right arm, his durability and the uncanny way he changes calls at the line of scrimmage, suddenly becoming a running quarterback?

SCOUTING REPORT Ravens run offense vs. Colts run defense: The Colts' soft spot is their run defense. They give up 4.6 yards a carry (sixth worst in the NFL) because of a lack of size. Indianapolis tackles Montae Reagor and Josh Williams both weigh 285 pounds, and ends Dwight Freeney and Raheem Brock are below 275. The Ravens could exploit this area better if running back Jamal Lewis were healthier. His right ankle is still sore and limits his cutting ability. If they can keep the game close or take a lead, look for the Ravens to run close to 35 times, with Lewis taking 25 carries and Chester Taylor handling the rest.

I FELT THE sadness in the song immediately, though after the first two listens, I didn't really get what it was all about. "Pablo Picasso," the second track on Citizen Cope's ambitious new album, The Clarence Greenwood Recordings, is a sympathetic character sketch of a deranged derelict in love with a woman in a mural. She's the only one alive that knows that I'm not crazy, Cope sings in a laid-back vocal style shaded with James Taylor, Randy Newman and Bill Withers. Over the danceable, reggae-shaded groove, Cope croons the chorus: Mr. Officer / If you come to take her / Then that means one of us / Gon' end up in a stretcher ..."

IF YOU WANT the societal revolution once promised by the dot-com visionaries to come to pass, refuse to buy a new computer. Stand pat on your single-gigahertz model and scream - as a technological harbinger of another generation said in the movie Network - "I'm mad as hell and I'm not going to take it anymore." In other words, make the promise of technology come true by slamming on your brakes in the fast lane of the information superhighway. Ironic, isn't it? But consider this: Would television have had the impact it did if 45 years ago your Mom had turned on the set and, about every two years, found out it no longer picked up I Love Lucy?

More perhaps than anyone else, Edwin Howard Armstrong made electronics the meeting place of art and science.Fame came to him early. In 1912, barely beyond his teens, he made the first of his seminal inventions -- the feedback circuit.This device raised the sensitivity of radio receivers hundreds of times over what it had been before and opened the way to reliable long-distance reception.Shortly afterward, his continuous-wave oscillator made it practical to transmit sound as well as Morse code via radio.

High Definition Television has a rocky path ahead of it before becoming a permanent fixture in the American living room, but you've got to give it some credit. It simply looks spectacular. Legislators, broadcasters, and budget-conscious consumers occasionally are blocking the road to HDTV's success, and many of them have legitimate concerns. Many television stations, for instance, feel the time isn't right for broadcast of HDTV signals because only a tiny percentage of American families have plopped down $3,000 or more for an HDTV system.
