This is everything you ever wanted to know about Cherry, who emerged last year as a promising soul singer and rapper--plus a whole lot you didn't want to know. While a welcome change from simple clip compilations that offer no extras, this 65-minute video verges on information overload--trivial information.

Hoping to plant their flags on the screens of Internet-connected television sets, Intel Corp. and Yahoo Inc. unveiled a new project Wednesday to populate those screens with tiny programs called widgets. Depending on your point of view, the goal is to create a multitasker's dream or an information-overload nightmare: It would let people do things like check their stock prices or peruse their photos, all while watching TV.

In "Undercurrent Events," Judith Ren-Lay uses nine short dance solos to structure an intuitive survey of how women are oppressed and controlled. Presented Saturday at Highways in Santa Monica, the piece incorporates Ren-Lay's eloquent singing as well as her rambling, self-consciously literary text.

ROLLINS BAND "Weight" Imago * * * Dazed by incessant violence, fried from information overload, worn down by the task of living, the characters stumbling through Henry Rollins' songs are easy marks for slick messiahs, false-front entertainers and poets peddling gangster fantasies to fools who end up paying the heavy price.
