The press release landed on the desk like a bomb. Some guy named Elisha Shapiro was putting on a radio call-in show titled "I Don't Believe in Anything; Why Do You?" This special broadcast on KPFK-FM's (90.7) "Soundings" series (at 8:30 Tuesday night) is a follow-up to his previous "Soundings" show called "Is It Possible Not to Believe in Anything?" The release referred to it as a "work-in-progress." Uh-oh. It referred to Shapiro as a "conceptual artist." Double uh-oh.

Spiderman and Superman don't make any appearances in "Larry Wilson's Super Heroes" at Magicopolis' Abracadabra Theatre. Wilson's superheroes are people with powers to amaze and amuse in this funny, sometimes corny, family-oriented magic show with a rotating cast.

Alan Pulner is a locally based performance artist whose pieces are nearly overloaded with ideas, humor, energy, high ambition. In "Sonny Boy," presented Thursday at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions on the opening program of a three-night series of split bills called "Fataphysical Revue," Pulner tackled with off-the-wall acuity one of the towering themes of human culture: our yearning for the infinite.

Admission is free. SMARTS' program, which consists of six site-specific performance pieces, will continue to be held at the Ocean Park performance platforms, designed by sculptor Joyce Kohl.

Nihilist Party chief Elisha Shapiro is pushing hard to make the T-Bird the national bird, Hollywood the capital, and get National League baseball teams in Managua and Havana. But he's the first to admit it all boils down to nothing in the end. Voters are unlikely to see the Nihilist Party listed on ballots in 1988, because of such minor details as state qualifying rules.

Few efforts launched during the 1960s to help solve the deep problems of Watts are still around. Remarkably, Project Jordan is. Project Jordan began in 1963--two years before the Watts rioting--when Margaret and Arthur Williams and other parents of Jordan High School students began to take youngsters to cultural events such as the Ramona Pageant and the Laguna Arts Festival. Unheard of treats for most kids in that neighborhood.

The Duchess of Windsor was wrong. You can be too thin. Just ask Cathy Rigby. Better yet, if you (or a friend or a loved one) suffer from anorexia nervosa or bulimia--potentially fatal eating disorders characterized by a fanatic dedication to losing weight--pick up a copy of the $24.95 videotape "Faces of Recovery." The tape is a not-for-profit effort by College Hospital in Cerritos, Rigby (who narrates) and her husband, Tom McCoy.
