Makeba Riddick stepped off a plane in New York City, exhausted after spending weeks in London working with the Black Eyed Peas, only to get a call from her manager. The record label needed Riddick to fly to Milan immediately and cut a song with pop star Rihanna. The song, "Live Your Life" — a single for the rapper T.I., featuring Rihanna, was almost finished, but the label wanted Riddick to write Rihanna's lyrics and help guide the young singer through her verse. Riddick threw a mini-temper tantrum, then took a deep breath and reluctantly boarded a plane.

In one of the many striking design coups in David Twohy's sci-fi apocalypse The Chronicles of Riddick, the Lord Marshal of the Necromongers (Colm Feore) wears a helmet with three faces. If only it had three brains to go with it! The Lord Marshal wants to convert all human creatures in the universe to the Necromonger religion, thus eliminating factional strife and preparing for their entrance into an alternate universe, known as the Underverse. If the word "Underverse" alone doesn't send bad jokes running through your brain (is that where old Underdog scripts go to die?

Glendening's closest aide and political confidant for more than a decade, is leaving his State House post while he continues to explore the possibility of running for Prince George's County executive. Riddick and the governor said yesterday that they made the decision to avoid the appearance of a conflict of interest between his roles as chief of staff and potential candidate. Glendening named Al Collins, 54. a deputy chief of staff and former secretary of human resources, as Riddick's replacement.

GREENBELT - In her first major public appearance since her divorce from the governor, Frances Hughes Glendening joined about 1,000 other women yesterday at a campaign breakfast for Major F. Riddick Jr., a clear sign that the former first lady has no intention of shrinking from public life. "It's very nice - a lot of people are asking me to be involved in various things," said Glendening, who was presented with an award for her advocacy on behalf of women. "I'm kind of taking it gradually, figuring out what I want to do."

Fringe, the dark new drama from celebrated producer J.J. Abrams, got off to slow start last week in both ratings and reviews from critics like me (I gave it a mixed review in the belief that it had great potential). Fox made a smart move in sending out tonight's episode so that critics could preview. The hope is that we would urge viewers to give it a second look. So, give it a second look. I still think it might be too freaky, gory and demanding insofar as the suspension of disbelief it asks viewers to make.

MAJOR F. RIDDICK Jr., Gov. Parris N. Glendening's chief aide for a decade, is considering a run for Prince George's County executive in 2002 -- a possibility that raises questions about how long he can function in his current role. Riddick, Glendening's chief of staff, said he has embarked on a "journey of listening" and is not close to a decision on whether to enter the race to succeed two-term executive Wayne K. Curry. "I have to weigh this very carefully," Riddick said. "I don't want to be part of any racially divisive efforts.

Vin Diesel might be a better video game star than Hollywood celebrity. His latest movie, The Chronicles of Riddick, has gotten mediocre reviews, but the new Xbox game starring his Riddick character is superb. Vivendi Universal's The Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay ($49, rated for ages 17 and up) takes place before the first movie in the Riddick series, Pitch Black. The game opens with a captured Riddick being flown to Butcher Bay prison, a sort of intergalactic Alcatraz.
