Last summer, it seemed that everybody in the world was on tour. Pink Floyd, Barbra Streisand, the Rolling Stones, Salt-n-Pepa, Eric Clapton, Aerosmith, Elton John, Peter Gabriel, the Eagles -- you could have seen a major act every week had you wanted.Not now, though. Nobody likes driving to the local sports arena through ice and snow, and that includes pop stars. As a result, all is quiet on the concert front for most of January and February, a situation that can be kind of frustrating for concert addicts.

Most girls who wake up and look in the mirror and see a strange red mark on their neck, think something along the lines of: “Crap, my boyfriend (lover/random hookup/whatever) got too aggressive last night and now I have a stupid hickey.”   The latest episode starts with Elena waking up looking in the mirror seeing two red dots on her neck, about an inch apart. Though she didn't say anything, I can only guess she was thinking: “Crap, my vampire ex-boyfriend tried to suck the blood out of me and now I have this mark to remind me of what a monster he is.”   In both cases, the solution is to try to cover it up with make up, which we all know doesn't really work and certainly doesn't make you forget how the mark got there.

ATLANTA -- It smells like teen spirit -- again. On Tuesday, a greatest-hits CD by the seminal 1990s rock act Nirvana hit music stores. And that's just the beginning of a revival of interest in the definitive grunge-era band and its tortured front man, the late Kurt Cobain. This week, Riverhead Books will release Journals, a much-anticipated collection of Cobain's unpublished diaries, memos, drawings, letters and other scribblings. Although this material was used extensively in Charles R. Cross' Heavier Than Heaven: A Biography of Kurt Cobain, the new book provides more of Cobain's firsthand accounts of his rise to fame, painful stomach condition and ambivalent feelings about success.

Zombie Prom, the new show from Merely Players, speaks to teens, says Artistic Director Beverly van Joolen, "in a kind of High School Musical meets Grease meets I Was a Teenage Werewolf way." This 1996 musical with book and lyrics by John Dempsey and music by Dana Rowe is a campy return to the 1950s, but where the prom queen's date might well be a walking corpse. It may sound like a stretch, but the Merely Players cast and crew pull it off with stylish enthusiasm. Relatively new and unknown locally, the show has the distinct advantage of no overfamiliarity.

WASHINGTON - Don't be looking for Jaime Pressly in any more teen movies. Not after Not Another Teen Movie. Making this satire of a genre that's been dragging out the same cliches from day one - the plain girl who's really a beauty waiting to be discovered, the self-centered jock, the struggling dad, the ham-fisted teacher, the teen-queen cheerleader - was plenty fun, Pressly stresses. But now that she's helped poke fun at all its absurdities, she's ready to leave such films behind. "Unless there's a sequel, that's right, I'm not going to be in any more," says the actress, whose feline looks and smoldering presence have made her an object of cinematic lust since her debut in 1997's Poison Ivy: The New Seduction.

WIMBLEDON, England -- Boris Becker fell all over himself yesterday proving a point at Centre Court.Becker, a three-time Wimbledon champion, dived and leaped and aced his way to a 7-6 (7-3), 6-1, 6-3 victory over Alexander Volkov. Becker was sending the rest of the competition a message."I am not playing like I was 17 again," said Becker after the match, wearing the Chicago Bulls cap he now considers lucky, his ginger beard still glistening from his on-court effort. "I am playing like I was 18. Why?

Deciding whether Hanson still counts as teen pop depends in large part on how you define the genre. If you think "teen pop" is simply pop music made by teen-agers, then the brothers Hanson clearly qualify. Even though three years have passed since "Mmm-bop" put these young Okies on the map, the members of Hanson remain in their teens. (Isaac is 19, Taylor 17, and Zac is 14, in case you're keeping score at home.) If, on the other hand, you believe that the phrase "teen pop" connotes a style more than a demographic, you may want to find a different pigeonhole for Hanson.

For two days, they gathered in a corner of the library, in classrooms and lecture halls and tried to identify and solve what they saw as their school's major issues. Black. White. Asian. Hispanic. Biracial. The Westminster High School students ran the gamut and were selected to put issues of race and ethnicity on the table without mincing words. "Who knows more about what goes on in this school?" a representative from the federal Department of Justice asked the 25 or so students sitting in wooden chairs in the media center.
