At long last, it's time to talk about: "30 Rock" NBC, don't you ever -- ever! -- again make us wait until mid-October for new episodes. (Thursday) If you liked "Paris, je t'aime," talk about: "New York, I Love You" Eye candy galore in this film anthology of love vignettes set in the Big Apple. Could be hit or miss -- directors include a range of talent, such as Mira Nair, Natalie Portman and Brett Ratner -- but with the holidays approaching, potential schmaltz is a forgivable offense.

The YouTube video from Shorewood High School in Washington state looks normal when it starts. It's a lip dub -- a lip sync of a song done in a single take with numerous students taking part -- of the infectious Hall & Oates tune, "You Make My Dreams." There are numerous lip dubs online, and this one is pretty much like any other, beginning with an enthusiastic girl running through the halls of the school, mouthing the words. But there are some odd things going on. Some students around her are doing impossible-looking acrobatics as the camera passes by. Objects fly up from the floor.

The ceremonial gowns for Animo Venice Charter High School's graduation will be navy blue, but the philosophy behind them is all green. The campus is among a number of high schools and colleges around California and the nation that are adopting environmentally friendly graduation garb made from either renewable wood fibers or recycled plastic bottles. The eco-robes being worn at Animo Venice, for example, are designed to decompose quickly if graduates decide to discard them. "If it ends up in the trash, at least we know we won't hurt the environment," said Animo Venice salutatorian Monica Bautista, 18. That's why her class decided to pay $10 more for the wood-fiber "Elements" gowns from Minnesota-based Jostens Inc. instead of going with the firm's more traditional polyester graduation robes.
