Crazy Heart . ( 3 STARS) There's a powerful symmetry at work in "Crazy Heart" that's impossible to resist. It's a parallel between protagonist Bad Blake, a country singer whose entire life has led him to a nadir of disintegration, and star Jeff Bridges, whose exceptional film choices have put him at the height of his powers just in time to make Mr. Blake the capstone role of his career. It's a mark of how fine a performance Bridges gives that it succeeds beautifully even though the besotted, bedeviled country singer has been an overly familiar popular culture staple (Rip Torn in "Payday," Robert Duvall in "Tender Mercies," Hank Williams and Merle Haggard in their own lives)

Romance seems to be all over the place on TV tonight. I wonder why?"Unsolved Mysteries" (8 p.m.-9 p.m., WBAL, Channel 11) -- "UM" wishes everyone a Happy Valentine's Day by looking at a bunch of alleged aphrodisiacs, seeking answers to the burning question of whether such foods as chocolate, honey and oysters can affect one's sex drive. Plus, is it really possible that an asteroid could crash into the Earth, ending life as we know it? (What a stroke of luck NBC has this show to air just two days before its ratings-month blockbuster, "Asteroid," dramatizes that very possibility!

The House Judiciary Committee and the House Health and Government Operations Committee will meet jointly at 4:30 p.m. this evening to vote on Gov. Martin O'Malley's bill legalizing same-sex marriage in Maryland. The two panels heard the bill jointly in a nearly 11 hour hearing last Friday evening. It is unclear at this point how the voting will work. Each panel could take a separate vote, or they could take one mega-vote as a joint committee. O'Malley said yesterday that he's still a few votes short of passage on the House floor, though he said that members will have to make their decisions soon.

It became a dark Valentine's Day in Annapolis -- some lovers' dinners canceled, motorists annoyed and legislative hearings disrupted -- as the power went out for about 10,000 customers of the Baltimore Gas and Electric Co. yesterday. BGE blamed an equipment malfunction for the 4 p.m. outage that complicated afternoon-rush traffic and consequently delayed crews from reaching the problem site at the utility's Cedar Park substation. Power was restored to about 90 percent of those affected within two hours, said BGE spokeswoman Linda Foy, and to all customers by 7 p.m. But restaurateurs faced with packed reservation books said the outage was long enough to delay preparations for a busy night of romantic dinners.

Eleven years ago, when Richard Young began decorating his Fallston yard for a few holidays, he had no idea he'd become an international star. But that's what's happened. "The house really caught my eye," said Gwen Hughes-Edwards, a resident of Abergavenny, Wales, who never fails to drive past the house when she's in town visiting her sister. "I see his summer displays because I visit during the summer, and I saw one Christmas display, which was lovely," she said. "I always ask my sister to drive past, very slowly, and drive past the other side slowly, and tell me what he has."
