DOES your inner Jackson Pollock yearn to drip, pour, squirt with a turkey baster? If so, Art Blogging L.A. (art.blogging.la) recommends a nifty little time-waster by Miltos Manetas -- jacksonpollock.org -- that lets you create your own black-paint-on-bare-canvas faux Pollock (left-click for color).

A computer analysis of paintings unveiled last year as previously undiscovered works by abstract artist Jackson Pollock suggests the 32 works are fakes, the Pollock-Krasner Foundation said Thursday. The foundation, set up under the will of Pollock's widow, Lee Krasner, said it retained professor Richard Taylor of the University of Oregon's department of physics to test six of the 32 paintings in question.

OPINION

True connoisseurship requires a passion and firmness of purpose that often seem to crowd out other virtues, particularly generosity. But that is only one of the things that makes last week's gift to the Museum of Contemporary Art of 18 works from the superb collection of the late Rita and Taft Schreiber such a landmark event in Los Angeles' cultural history. In today's hyper-inflated art market the value of the bequest, which was made by Mrs. Schreiber before she died earlier this year, has been put at $60 million.

On the night he unveiled his first life-size bronze, Yuri Gevorgian seemed more than merely one of the city's great rags-to-riches stories: He seemed a bona fide giant in the world of art. The once-homeless painter and sculptor--who signs his work "Yuroz"--was a grinning, engaging focal point of attention among 100 wealthy collectors and dealers who gathered at his series of lofts in Los Angeles' downtown Artist District.

Jaclyn Smith, in one of her more credible performances and better TV movies, plays a rookie detective in the sturdy Gotham mystery "In the Arms of a Killer" (Sunday night at 9 on NBC). Writer and director Robert Collins has neatly filled his tight-fisted suspense drama with both gloss and grit so that it casts a sheen one moment and squalor the next.

"Featuring" doesn't quite describe Valdes' participation in this new outing by the much-praised Cuban band. Most of what happens in this fiery collection of pieces traces to the pianist's vivid, high-speed improvisational imagination and the manner in which he manages the sheer talent of Irakere's current installment. In his soloing, often in introductions or bridging interludes, Valdes slows down for a rhapsodic passage or two. But not for long.

Not born to follow The great punk poet Mike Ness owned the Sunset Strip on Saturday night as his band Social Distortion rocked the House of Blues with passionate fury. In its staggering 19-night run at both the Anaheim and West Hollywood House of Blues nightclubs, Social Distortion proved itself to be the best and most beloved punk band to emerge from the trenches of Orange County, circa '79. With every night sold out, Ness showed that some punks are built to last.

Sonny Rollins has reached what the French would call his troisieme age in impressive fashion. The veteran tenor saxophone player, at 77 one of the few remaining iconic figures of the post-bebop era, is investing his later years with a devil-may-care improvisational adventurousness. Arriving onstage at the Cerritos Center on Saturday night, Rollins, apparently suffering from arthritic problems, walked stiffly, at times with seeming discomfort.

Last week we reveled in the ultimate scene event, the Hollywood's Only Rock Nightlife Yellow Pages Music & Fashion Awards--sort of Oscar night for the Hollywood rocker set. It was a night of mirth and merriment, as celebrants at Dragonfly patted one another on the back for jobs well done.
