Are you ready to ease back in your Dodgers inflatable chair, feet resting on your Dodgers welcome mat, head beneath your Dodgers pennant (which is right next to your Yasiel Puig Fathead), wearing your Dodgers hoodie, listening to Vin Scully on your portable Dodgers speaker (or headphones), all while clutching your Dodgers autograph baseball in one hand and tapping one of your new Dodgers bobbleheads with the other? It's all so possible. You don't need an app to imagine that, the Dodgers will sell you a special mini plan.

A federal lawsuit to stop the proposed merger of American Airlines and US Airways could be good for penny-pinching fliers. The legal challenge filed in August by the U.S. Department of Justice says that the deal to create the world's largest carrier would cut competition and lead to higher fares. Until the lawsuit is settled or won by either side, don't expect the two airlines to raise fares and give federal authorities more reason to fight the merger, said Rick Seaney, chief executive of the fare monitoring site Farecompare.com.

Almost immediately after she deposited herself in a corner booth at L'Espalier, the restaurant at Boston's Mandarin Oriental Hotel on the December afternoon after the first American date of her Monster Ball tour, Lady Gaga made a confounding statement. "I don't see myself as ever being like anybody else," said the 23-year-old known to her mom (eating lunch nearby) as Stefani Germanotta. "I don't see myself as an heir." Yet there she was, in a blond Hollywood bob and black tuxedo-bra combo much like the costumes Madonna wore 20 years ago, discussing a show that conjures the spirits of Michael Jackson, David Bowie and the punk-rock drag queens of downtown New York and promoting music -- the newly expanded edition of her 2008 debut album, "The Fame," greatly enriched by eight new songs and repackaged as "The Fame Monster" -- that pays blatant homage to ABBA, Queen, Eurodisco and Marilyn Manson.

What do you do when your parents file restraining orders against you? In the case of one 6-foot-2 redhead, you make an educational, multimedia show. In his "The Very Worst of Varla Jean Merman," at the Hudson Avenue Theatre, Jeffery Roberson gives cross-dressing and self-absorption a good name.

'Eccentric' doesn't begin to describe Magic Cat, Michiko Kishimoto's 4-year-old shop in Little Tokyo. Along with nearly every conceivable cat collectible under the sun, the 67-year-old proprietor also stocks Elvis memorabilia and Kurosawa videos because, well, she can. Granted, the two entertainers had cat-related nicknames (Elvis was often referred to as the 'Hillbilly Cat,' while she says some called director Akira Kurosawa 'Kool Kat').

Like hip-hop and Madonna, graffiti would never last, they said. They were wrong. Spray paint, doodles and block lettering have become part of the vocabulary of contemporary art, from paintings at L.A. galleries such as New Image Art to the logo of Burbank's Urban Outfitters. These vibrant graphics are also making their way from public places to private spaces.

The smuggler threatened to kill 4-year-old Nayli if he didn't receive $11,500 from her parents -- immediately. He had sneaked the girl across the Mexican border nearly a month earlier and now was holding her for ransom somewhere near Los Angeles. "Mommy, I don't want to be here anymore," Nayli said through tears when the smuggler put her on the phone. Her mother, Yaneth, could hear terror in her daughter's voice. "OK, mija , I am coming," she answered in Spanish before the smuggler hung up. Yaneth was desperate.

Gene Simmons knows a thing or two about night life, and now he has a new gig: bar owner. The KISS leader is one of three principals behind the recently remodeled, music-focused craft beer spot Rock & Brews, and keeping his attention at one of its outdoor bar stools is no easy task. Two sentences into explaining why chefs are the new rock stars, a pair of onlookers capture Simmons' eye. He stops the interview, and waves two young women into the sidewalk-adjacent El Segundo beer garden.
