Nobody likes to be judged. Unless, of course, the judgment is that you're awesome and in possession of an unappreciated talent. Which is precisely why a duo of Brooklyn-based performance artists called the Bumbys are catching on in fashionable, arty circles around the world. The pair sit in heavy disguise in front of electric Brother typewriters - at events as varied as Men's Fashion Week in Paris and GQ's Super Bowl party - and offer "A Fair & Honest Appraisal of Your Appearance.

"Mama, who's your favorite kid?" Jill asked. "Mama, am I your No. 1?" Andrew asked.

The title of the somnolent new thriller "Gone" may be generic, but it packs plenty of information about the movie into its lone word. Gone is the sister of the film's heroine, who up and vanishes 15 minutes into the movie. Gone is perhaps the heroine's sanity, since, absent any hard-and-fast evidence, she firmly believes that said sister was abducted by the same serial killer who may (or may not) have kidnapped her a year earlier. Gone is also your hard-earned money if you buy a ticket to this slack piece of work, a movie that makes "Murder on the Orient Express" feel like"The Silence of the Lambs"by comparison.

"They're identical twins in name only," warned director Scott Hardy of "Identical Twins From Baltimore," a new musical (with book by Marc Mantell, music and lyrics by Dan Alvy) opening Thursday at the Tiffany. The story concerns two "girls"--Jill (played by Sheryl Lee Ralph), who's black and beautiful, and Jane (Patrick Lang), who's a 250-pound white man. "That's where the insanity begins," Hardy noted. "They come to New York, where they get this roach-infested, flea-bitten room.

Once in a very great while, I make a dumb mistake, and the mistake unravels to a joyful end. I don't mean that it is only once in a very great while that I make a dumb mistake; that happens all the time. It's the joyful unraveling that is rare. In a Nov. 27 column I said, speaking of grammatic analysis, "A statement like 'Jack and Jill went up the hill' poses few problems." I then said that the up in that line was an adverb.

Last week, we brought you news that Robert Glasper, the wide-ranging jazz pianist, would release a new album by his band the Robert Glasper Experiment on Oct. 29. Now you can hear the album's lead single, "Calls," below. A luscious neo-soul cut with vocals by R&B singer Jill Scott, the track comes from Glasper's sequel to last year's "Black Radio," which won the Grammy Award for R&B album. In addition to Scott, "Black Radio 2" is to feature guest spots by singers and rappers including Anthony Hamilton, Snoop Dogg, Common and Faith Evans, as well as Patrick Stump of the emo-rock band Fall Out Boy.

WASHINGTON - During the weeks before he was killed in a car crash in Los Angeles, reporter Michael Hastings was researching a story about a privacy lawsuit brought by Florida socialite Jill Kelley against the Department of Defense and the FBI. Hastings, 33, was scheduled to meet with a representative of Kelley next week in Los Angeles to discuss the case, according to a person close to Kelley. Hastings wrote for Rolling Stone and the website BuzzFeed. Kelley alleges that military officials and the FBI leaked her name to the media to discredit her after she reported receiving a stream of emails that were traced to Paula Broadwell, a biographer of former CIA director David H. Petraeus, according to a lawsuit filed in Federal District Court in Washington, D.C., on June 3. Petraeus resigned from the CIA after publicly admitting that he and Broadwell had carried on an extramarital affair.

TAMPA, Fla. - When Jill Kelley believed a reporter was trespassing at her white-columned mansion in a wealthy neighborhood this week, the Tampa socialite called 911 and claimed diplomatic immunity. "I'm an honorary consul general, so I have inviolability," an exasperated Kelley told the dispatcher in recordings released by police. "I don't know if you want to get diplomatic protection involved as well. " Kelley isn't a diplomat; she holds the ceremonial title of "honorary consul" for South Korea, one of many informal ties to prestige and power that the energetic 37-year-old mother of three has brandished to climb to the top rungs of the social ladder in this conservative military community.

WASHINGTON - An FBI investigation that led to the resignation of CIA Director David Petraeus also turned up evidence that Gen. John Allen, the top U.S. commander in Afghanistan, was exchanging potentially inappropriate emails with a Florida woman involved in the scandal, Pentagon officials said. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said in a statement early Tuesday morning that he had ordered an investigation of Allen after the FBI informed the Pentagon it had uncovered thousands of pages of emails between Allen and Jill Kelley, a 37-year-old who has been described as an unpaid social liaison at MacDill Air Force Base, Fla., which is headquarters to the U.S. Central Command.
