"What's to keep you from rebooting the nanobot once I've given you the assembler?" You have to hand it to Walmart; when it does a thing, it does it big. "The Jensen Project," a two-hour, self-described family-friendly movie produced by Walmart and P&G and airing Friday night on NBC, is not just bad, it's super bad. So bad, in fact, that it's almost worth watching for its "Mystery Science Theater 3000" potential. Nothing bonds a family more than the opportunity to predict cheesy dialogue — "all the systems have been shut down!"

David Edwards is a successful professional cellist. He has, however, virtually given up playing. He does recording work; he plays for pleasure. But he spends his days making rolling-pins and mustard pots, hairbrushes, egg cups (complete with egg and spoon), pepper mills and spools of thread (in 25 colors). Small, ordinary household items. Only Edwards' objects are far from ordinary--though small they certainly are. Very small. They are miniatures: minuscule replicas, one-twelfth normal size.

A federal judge granted the Securities and Exchange Commission an emergency order to shut down a scheme that allegedly bilked investors out of $98million and targeted their retirement money. The SEC has charged that Resources Development International of Tacoma, Wash., and almost a dozen other people and corporations stole from more than 1,300 people. The commission said they were duped into investing in fake European financial instruments. U.S.

David Edwards, coming off the best season of his 13-year career, shot a five-under-par 67 Friday for a one-stroke lead over Mike Reid after two rounds at the Ben Hogan-Pebble Beach Invitational. Edwards, a two-time PGA Tour winner who finished 38th on the money list in 1991 with nearly $400,000, had six birdies and one bogey on the Pebble Beach Golf Links in the unique, non-tour event that includes entrants from the PGA, LPGA and Senior tours.

*** Sixteen Horsepower, "Sackcloth 'n' Ashes," A&M. Spooky death ballads are as old as the hills--and that's just where the inspiration came from for this Denver trio's haunted combinations of David Eugene Edwards' pained vocals, wheezy bandoneon, slide guitar and/or banjo. This is mountain music, but the mountains of "Elmer Gantry" and "Deliverance," not "Hee Haw." It's a bracing debut, staking out the crossroads where Nick Cave meets the Violent Femmes.
