A decade or so ago, Nathan Rabin's older sister went to Israel on a trip with a youth group. At the time she was a fan of thoughtful folk musicians like Indigo Girls and Dar Williams, but her roommate there listened to Celine Dion - and only Celine Dion. "The first four months were really agonizing for my sister," Rabin said. "But then she cracked. She went from 'I hate Celine Dion' to 'Celine Dion is my favorite artist of all time.'" A former writer for the Onion newspaper's A.V. Club and author of several books, including "The Big Rewind: A Memoir Brought to You by Pop Culture," Rabin undergoes a startlingly similar transition in his new book, "You Don't Know Me but You Don't Like Me: Phish, Insane Clown Posse, and My Misadventures with Two of Music's Most Maligned Tribes" (Scribner: 272 pp., $16 paper)

The Insane Clown Posse, a rap group with multiple platinum albums, is suing the federal government to have its loyal fan base removed from a national listing of known gangs. One of those fans, Brandon Bradley from Citrus Heights in Northern California, claims police repeatedly stopped him because of his tattoos and clothing hailing the Insane Clown Posse. Bradley isn't alone. Fans of the group -- also known as "Juggalos" -- claim they get harassed by local authorities from California to Tennessee for wearing group-inspired tattoos and clothing.

I want to thank Charlie Amter for writing such a dead-on article about Tech N9ne ["Making His Own Flow," July 12]. Since becoming a Juggalo -- a follower of Insane Clown Posse -- I've been turned on to great underground acts such as Tech, or his pals Kutt Calhoun & Big Krizz Kaliko, also from Missouri. It was fresh to read your article as you obviously know quite a bit about underground rap and Tech himself.

Mary Death (Christian Pitre) is the future's biggest celebrity. In her sexy-waitress mini dress and white vinyl go-go boots, she's every bit the self-promoter Kim Kardashian is. But instead of a reality show, in "Bounty Killer," Mary's famous for being "the greatest killer the world has ever known," a ferocious, bloodthirsty pinup queen. Mary and Drifter (Matthew Marsden), her former lover and current rival, are swoon-worthy folk heroes who ruthlessly mow down the enemy of the people: white-collar criminals.

Duo Tom Ball & Kenny Sultan will bring their "good-time blues" to the well-kept secret that is the Zalk Theatre on the campus of Happy Valley School this weekend. The place, on Highway 150 between Ojai and Santa Paula, is lacking in signage and is difficult to find in the dark, but the venue itself is a small, intimate setting with great sound. Ball and Sultan have been together for a long time; in fact their latest release is "20th Anniversary Live."
