The Los Angeles real estate agent still vividly remembers the day her dizziness started. It came without warning. "I was in my office," recalls Anne Russell Sullivan. "I felt a pressure creep up the back of my neck and suddenly I was dizzy. I put my head between my legs and took a couple of deep breaths, but when I got up a few minutes later, the whole room was spinning." Her problem is not uncommon.

A lyric from the title track from New Zealand rocker Neil Finn's new solo album, "Dizzy Heights," crystallizes much of what the erstwhile member of Crowded House, Split Enz and the Finn Brothers is up to on his latest work. "Help me make up a new sound," he sings, and indeed, much of what he's created for "Dizzy Heights" embodies that idea with spacious aural landscapes and often exotic arrangements surrounding lyrics that delve into a multiplicity of emotions. It's often a far cry from the Beatle-esque pop with which Finn built his reputation as one of the finest songwriters of the 1980s and '90s.

From its inception, the operatic stage has welcomed the blending of such diverse art forms as music, drama, dance and visual design. But it's safe to say that Francesco Cavalli, the 17th century Italian composer who led the development of opera as a public entertainment, never imagined that his gorgeous Baroque arias would one day be sung by a cast in spacesuits from a cheesy sci-fi thriller. The Wooster Group, bless its co-founder and director Elizabeth LeCompte's postmodern heart, is at it again.

The surreal state of the Lakers - they lose even when they win. They beat the Orlando Magic, 103-94, Sunday at Staples Center and ended a four-game losing streak with a career-high 28 points from Jordan Hill. But Pau Gasol couldn't finish the game, staying in the locker room at halftime after feeling dizzy and nauseated. He received three liters of IV solution, a sizable amount, and was to spend the night at a hospital for precautionary reasons. Lakers Coach Mike D'Antoni theorized it was an illness or influenza though admitted he did not know what caused Gasol's discomfort.

Nearly 50 people in Monrovia complained of dizziness and other symptoms Monday after a manufacturing company mixed three chemicals that became super-heated and were released into the air. City officials have since cleared the scene at Air Logistics, where, they said, about 200 people were potentially exposed to the sickening mixture of cycloaliphathic resin, boron trifluoride and ancamine. In all, 45 people showed symptoms, including dizziness, chest pains, nausea and vomiting from inhaling the gas. Eleven people were hospitalized, including two who needed immediate medical attention.

Before he was about to operate on the golfer's brain, J.B. Holmes' surgeon wanted to make sure there was one thing he didn't forget once he was finished with the delicate procedure. He had to remember to call his wife and wish her a happy birthday. As Holmes came back to consciousness after surgery Sept. 1 to address the debilitating effects caused by something called Chiari malformations, the first thing he said to his Johns Hopkins doctor, George Jallo, was: "Don't forget to call your wife.

Forty people were forced from their homes and a two-block area was closed to traffic Friday morning after seven 50-gallon drums--one of them leaking an unidentified chemical--were found dumped in a South-Central Los Angeles alley. Two of the evacuees were taken to California Hospital complaining of dizziness and irritation of nose and throat. They were treated and released. Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman Jim Wells said the drums were discovered behind 727 E. 43rd St.

With the "The Hangover Part II" opening to general audiences Thursday, this might be a prime moment to remember that hangovers are not merely the kickoff to wild adventures involving Bradley Cooper and a cocaine-addled capuchin monkey. Hangovers often involve headache, dizziness, nausea, sensitivity to light and fatigue. Though not limited to the morning after, that's when their effects are typically felt. Though the cause -- consumption of alcohol to the point of intoxication -- is obvious, how and why exactly drinking causes them remain less clear.

Let's chalk up yet another sell-out to the teen brat market. Disney, long the champion of childhood innocence and fantasy, has got the adolescent-sex-film-thrill-ride-video, boom-box bug. The last laugh is on them, however--those kids don't spend money. It's guys like me, with a wife and three small kids, who spend real bucks--and mine will now probably be spent elsewhere.

Are you a casual fan of figure skating and have some questions after watching it during the Sochi Olympics? Former competitive figure skater Laura E. Davis, the deputy mobile editor for The Times, has some answers. 1. Why don't figure skaters get dizzy? It may look like the jumps and spins that figure skaters do would make them so dizzy they would fail a DUI test, much less be able to continue delicate tricks on ice. But spinning that fast doesn't throw you off like spinning slowly does.

Pulpy dross of surpassing dumbness, "Charlie Countryman" takes the blender approach to mixing dark adventure, doofus comedy and pie-eyed romance, but forgets to put the lid on when pulsed. Scruffy emo-puppy Shia LaBeouf plays the title role, a young Chicagoan who hightails it to Bucharest after the death of his mother (Melissa Leo) and gets mixed up with Evan Rachel Wood's smoky-eyed, tough-girl cellist Gabi and her psychotic criminal husband Nigel (Mads Mikkelsen). The film starts with the thuddingly whimsical, showing us that Charlie can talk to the dead.

Denver Broncos Coach John Fox needs heart surgery and will miss several weeks, team spokesman Patrick Smyth confirmed Saturday night. Fox, 58, will undergo aortic valve replacement surgery early next week at a hospital in Charlotte, N.C. The Broncos did not immediately name an interim head coach. Fox had been told earlier about his heart condition and was hoping to put off the operation until February. As part of his trip to North Carolina over the Broncos' off week, he met with his cardiologist and was told to seek medical attention immediately if he felt any discomfort.

New Zealand popmeister Neil Finn will return to action with a new solo album, “Dizzy Heights,” scheduled for release Feb. 10, but he'll preview some of the new material earlier with a handful of solo shows including an L.A. stop on Nov. 19 at Largo at the Coronet. The Crowded House chief songwriter and frontman, and former member of Split Enz with his older brother Tim Finn, said the new album, which he co-produced with Dave Fridmann, defied some of the conventions of a bandleader doing a solo recording.

Oscar Castro-Neves, a Brazil-born guitarist who helped to create the cool, sensuous rhythms of bossa nova and orchestrated music for movies including "L.A. Story" and "Dirty Rotten Scoundrels," has died. He was 73. Castro-Neves had cancer and died Friday in Los Angeles, his wife, Lorraine Castro-Neves, said. Castro-Neves, who was noted for both his virtuosity and his impish sense of humor, toured with jazz greats Dizzy Gillespie and Stan Getz. For 10 years, he was guitarist, musical director and vocal coach for Sergio Mendes' Brasil '66 and went on to produce albums by luminaries as varied as cellist Yo-Yo Ma and jazz harmonica player Toots Thielemans.

As the sports world is learning with every jaw-dropping win, these suddenly delightful Dodgers are a team of many faces. They include Yasiel Puig's giant look of wonder, Juan Uribe's impish grin, A.J. Ellis' grimace, Clayton Kershaw's scowl, and occasionally even Don Mattingly's smile. Then there is The Stare. It's solid, expressionless, powerful in its confident calm, a constant in the Dodgers' dizzying array of emotion. It's also apparently really cute when Mark Ellis' 6-year-old son, Briggs, imitates it while playing tee ball in the middle of his living room.

There are times you wish writer-director-editor Terence Nance's hyper-eclectic dipsy doodle "An Oversimplification of Her Beauty" would be a bit, well, simpler. That said, this big-hearted film's many moving parts ultimately add up to a jaunty, highly unique look at romantic crossed wires and the push-pull of male-female relationships. The movie toggles between the title work and its predecessor, a 2006 short called "How Would You Feel?" about the would-be romance between Nance and his friend-unrequited love, Namik Minter.
