Outside, the world is a series of threatening figures. A demanding boss, an eager girlfriend, a landlord impatient with the noise of rock 'n' roll drum practice. Inside, the world is a rocker's dream, a toyland, an improvised recreation center. Such is the bifurcated world of Steven Banks, who, in his "Steven Banks Home Entertainment Center," which premieres tonight at 9:30 on Showtime, reprises the show that has earned glowing notices both in Los Angeles and San Francisco (where this one was taped)

As part of a six-page photo spread devoted to his model of the dwelling, Frank Gehry also muses about Playboy ideals, urban living and designs he has yet to do. "I haven't done a skyscraper, that big phallic thing. Everyone wants to have the world's biggest erection," Gehry is quoted as saying.

Nick Currie is an over-educated Brit who goes by the stage name of Momus and concocts cynical, emotionally oblique pop songs that connect the dots between French lounge music, Japanese pop and class-conscious English rock. If that doesn't exactly sound like your idea of fun, think again. Momus is one of Britain's most savagely clever songwriters; his LunaPark performance on Thursday was a scathing societal manifesto gussied up as a crowd-pleasing cabaret act.
