Talk about the news media being in bed with their sources. Hollywood has long maintained a cozy, you-scratch-my-back relationship with TV news. News directors concede that it has been a case of newscasts using famous faces to boost ratings while the famous use the free exposure to hawk their latest project.

Home to what may be the city's highest per-capita population of Caucasian dreadheads and individuals with subcutaneous jewelry, L.A.'s Eastside is a hotbed of countercultural activity. So why is this thriving scene more often reported by the national media than it is locally? "I really get the feeling that the Eastside is considered by the established media in L.A.

Pike's Hike: Laurie Pike, KTTV Channel 11's hip and eccentric entertainment reporter, has quit. A KTTV spokeswoman would only say that Pike, who was hired last June to report on quirky cultural events such as offbeat art gallery shows and underground dance clubs, left the station "to pursue other things." The spokeswoman added that KTTV is looking to hire a replacement. Pike could not be reached for comment.

Is there a swatch of Material Girl trivia too insignificant for a true-blue Madonnaphile to receive without a hearty squeal? Laurie Pike doesn't think so. That's why the former KTTV entertainment reporter is bringing Madonna minutiae into your living room via public-access TV. That's right, fans, airing on a cable channel near you, it's a whole show . . . "All About Madonna!" "Have you ever gotten the feeling that there's just not enough Madonna to go around?"

With skyrocketing rents, neighbors like Madonna and the fact that even Grandma can find it without a Thomas Guide, it's obvious the once quaintly bohemian Silver Lake/Los Feliz area is about as alternative as, well, alternative. So where next? A few urban seers predict tomorrow's hot ZIP codes. --Mark Ehrman BILLY SHIRE Owner, Wacko/Soap Plant North Hollywood or East L.A. There's nothing else left. NoHo has been on the verge for a few years.

Run, Dave, run. You'd think that a celebration of movies could zoom along entirely on its own cinematic energy. As year after year affirms, however, so goes the host, so goes the show.

And he didn't.

FUN, creative, and most importantly, cute. It was hard to get away from that word this week when Paper magazine -- New York's pioneering style and culture publication -- landed here for a five-day stand of music, fashion, art and low-impact sports. "The crowd last night was so cute. Not fashion cute, but creative cute. Cute," Paper co-founder and co-editor Kim Hastreiter said after Tuesday's opening night party.

With the explosion over the last year of all things dot-com, you might have thought this year's Internet coverage of the Oscars would have been more extensive than ever before. Well, yes and no. While more Web sites (including unexpected online outlets such as Women.com, Pets.com and Brittanica.com) offered some sort of Oscar-related information--whether a simple poll or complete historical coverage--only 10 sites were granted press credentials to Sunday night's event.

Monah Li never thought she'd end up in a downtown office building. Not long ago, Li's natural habitat was bohemian Los Feliz, where her romantic mixed-fabric dress designs made her the local hero of Vermont Avenue.
