Physics don't apply, or at least not any physics from around here. People float, dance on walls, and have this habit of skittering back and forth through time like errant record needles. Everything looks distorted too, in a fish-eyed, funhouse way, and colors jump at your eye like spray-painted zoo animals. The music never stops playing, and, always, always, always the women are really hot. Welcome to the head of Harold Williams--dare you to change the channel.

Hype Williams' "Belly" starts its story of lifelong pals turned drug dealers at a provocative point--the pinnacle of their success. Tommy Brown (DMX) and Sincere (Nas) grew up in the projects in Queens, but now live in Long Island splendor. First Sincere and finally Tommy begin to examine their lives, which is requiring them to take greater risks by peddling increasingly dangerous drugs.

THE HYPE Carnell Williams, RB, Auburn Williams topped even Bo Jackson with his six touchdowns Saturday. He has 520 yards in his last three games and has that Cadillac motor revving. But will voters remember his Pinto days against USC and Georgia Tech to start the season? THE TYPE Kyle Orton, QB, Purdue After scaring off Brandon Hance to take over the position for the Boilermakers, Orton finally got his chance to put up Drew Brees-like numbers, throwing 56 times for 411 yards against Wisconsin.

DeAngelo Williams lived up to the hype. Williams set an NCAA record with his 34th 100-yard rushing game and scored three touchdowns, leading Memphis to a 38-31 victory over Akron in the Motor City Bowl on Monday. Williams ran for 233 yards in 30 carries and finished his career with 6,021 yards rushing -- trailing only Ron Dayne, Ricky Williams and Tony Dorsett in Division I-A history -- and an NCAA-record 7,568 all-purpose yards.

Sean "Puffy" Combs, whose highly anticipated album is out today, doesn't just have the No. 1 single in the country ("I'll Be Missing You," a tribute to the late Notorious B.I.G., recorded with the slain rapper's widow Faith Evans). He's also the star of one of the most dynamic music videos currently getting airplay. Director Hype Williams' dazzling clip is for "Mo' Money, Mo' Problems," a song from B.I.G.'s album, "Life After Death." But it's B.I.G.'

Re "Who let this Dogg out?" Opinion, Dec. 7 Although still critical of The Times' editorial staff changes, I must say that I am impressed with Erin Aubry Kaplan's first column. Going to some pains to not advocate for Stanley Tookie Williams nor overly lampoon Snoop Dogg, she has constructed a thought-provoking piece of journalism. I will continue to look for her column with interest. JEFF GERSHOFF Topanga Re Kaplan's description of the "racially oppressive age of George W. Bush": Hardly.

Perhaps all the adults surrounding Venus Williams--and there are packs of them--would do well to listen to her on the subject of expectations. "I'm just 15," she said, showing she may have the best perspective on her fledgling career. Williams, playing only her second tournament since turning pro last year, looked her age on the tennis court Monday night, but she behaved more maturely than those on the bandwagon that has heralded the teen-ager's ascension in the sport.
