His roots are in hip-hop, but his greatest influence is the Muppets. He's certified as an elementary school teacher, but his real job is DJ. His live shows spotlight his skills on the Technics, but they also incorporate snippets of stand-up comedy and sometimes animation. A hip-hop iconoclast and all-around boy wonder, Kid Koala may be one of Canada's most unusual musical exports.

The 1980 version of "The Blue Lagoon" was not the original, as stated in Outtakes. Jean Simmons appeared in a British version in 1949--with bra of flowers, I might add. ERIC HEATH San Diego

Margo Pfeiff's story about Canada's Hudson Bay was more than enticing and left me wanting more ["Arctic's Warm Whales," Aug. 23]. I have a serious perspective about the importance of our natural environment and want to plan a vacation based on her article. Eric Symons San Diego

Unfortunately, Jim Murray chose not to deal with the game in his article, but with the people of Iowa. Mr. Murray did not see the Iowans I saw. These people forgot the economic troubles that have gripped their businesses and farms to enjoy a football game and a little warm weather. Who could blame them? An Iowan is like a willow tree in the wind. The harder the wind blows the more they bend and the harder they snap back. On January 2, Jim Murray blew too hard. Watch out when those Iowans snap back.

With "Platoon" we now have an insulated worm's-eye view of the infantry man's life in Vietnam. He has my sympathy. But that is entertainment? Sure, the film makers did a superb job, but who wants it? A running time of practically unrelieved violence and "language," it becomes monotonous. Is this an atonement for our being in the wrong place at the wrong time? Best violence for 1986 maybe. But Best Picture? Over my dead body! ERIC HEATH San Diego

I was really amused by Paul Whitefield's piece ("Middle-Class Husband Meets Villa on the Hill," July 8). As someone who has experienced one of those tours, I found myself laughing out loud at some of the descriptions of these "lovingly" restored and upgraded homes. In spite of the overt, over-the -top "wow factors" of some of the homes, I remember feeling a little inadequate going back to my sprawling 800-square-foot, fairly original 1926-built home. But then I got to thinking.

Whenever things got awkward during DJ Kid Koala's multimedia presentation promoting his first graphic novel on Saturday at the Knitting Factory, the Vancouver-born turntablist simply faced the audience and deadpanned, "It's a book release," as if he were as momentarily nonplused as everyone else.
