The apocalypse is no place for wimps. Whiners, on the other hand, are generously accommodated in Denis Henry Hennelly's "Goodbye World," an unconvincing, poorly conceived hybrid of end-of-the-world thriller and relationship drama. The collapse of this civilization arrives via text message; the words "Goodbye World" prelude the sudden breakdown of all technological infrastructure. The stockpiles of food that survivalist James (Adrian Grenier) had hoarded in his off-the-grid cottage can feed his wife, Lily (Kerry Bishé)

LILI SINGER's "Callas to Have and to Hold" [March 17] compelled me to begin a stand of white callas. But her assertion that South African varieties do best in Southern California may mislead readers into believing that the U.S. has no arum lilies of its own. Many Angelenos from colder climes can recall the joy of seeing native arums poking purple spathes through the slush as harbingers of spring. The bright leaves that follow, are among the year's earliest beauties. The name Chicago is said to be derived from a Native American name for the plant, and naturalists have studied the heat-generating mechanism that allows a member of an otherwise semitropical family to thrive in Windy City parks.

Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda will be clocking in together once again.  The actresses, who co-starred in the classic 1980 workplace comedy "9 to 5," will team up again in "Grace and Frankie," a new single-camera sitcom for Netflix. The series also boasts a creative team that includes Howard J. Morris, writer and producer of 'Sullivan & Son," and Marta Kauffman, co-creator of a little show known as "Friends" as well as "Dream On," an early original series on HBO. Through 13 half-hour episodes, "Grace and Frankie" will explore the relationship between two women in their twilight years, Grace (Fonda)

If "Lily in Love" (at the Fine Arts) seems vaguely familiar as well as decidedly antique it's not surprising because distinguished Hungarian director Karoly Makk has drawn freely from his countryman Ferenc Molnar's "The Guardsman" for his first English-language film. What is surprising is that nowhere does playwright Molnar receive any credit.

In my first post outlining my 100-mile diet, I mentioned a $35 local chicken and a comment war broke out over whether the price was justifiable. Though I think sustainable food is priceless, searching for a more reasonably priced bird, I called up Kendor Farm in Van Nuys and Lily's Eggs in Fillmore, two farms a poster named rezpeni1 suggested in a comment . Kendor Farm was founded by Ken Arno and Doreen Radogna. Arno previously worked at a smog check station and gardened as stress relief after dealing with frustrated car owners all day. As his garden grew, he bought some chickens to fertilize the soil.

Lily and the Lost Boy by Paula Fox (Orchard Books: $12.95; 149 pages) Jack Hemmings is trouble waiting to happen. You sense that on the first page of "Lily and the Lost Boy," before you know his name, before you know what he's doing on the Greek island, which, until Jack's appearance, has been "a golden place" for Lily and her brother, Paul. As annoyed as Lily that Jack has come crashing into their lives, you immediately dislike him.

In his fourth novel, Todd Walton, author of the critically praised "Inside Moves" and "Louie & Women," delivers an unusual and often gripping tale that begins like a hard-boiled crime story and becomes something resembling science fiction. Walton evokes a paranoid romanticism reminiscent of Craig Nova, Don DeLillo or Thomas Pynchon as he tracks the fate of Lily and Charlie, two down-and-out musicians on the run from an army of "very well-connected" thugs out not just for blood but for spirit.

Deliberately paced but not so deliberately thought out, the horror entry "Cassadaga" tries to scoop up enough tropes to satisfy a wide range of potential fright fans but lacks the cohesion to ever truly be effective. Kelen Coleman sympathetically plays Lily, a deaf art teacher spurred by the tragic death of her younger sister to relocate to sleepy, moss-covered college town Cassadaga, where seance-holding spiritualists roam, a vengeful dead woman begins haunting her and the town weirdo might be a serial killer.

Rooney Mara looks to be headed to Neverland. The "Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" lead is in negotiations to star as the tribal princess Tiger Lily in Warner Bros.' upcoming Peter Pan origin story "Pan," according to a Variety report. Directed by Joe Wright ("Pride & "Prejudice," "Anna Karenina") from a script by Jason Fuchs, the film is also set to star Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund, with an open casting being held to find a 10-to-12-year-old actor to play Pan, the report says . "Pan," which is scheduled for release July 17, 2015, is said to be a new take on J.M. Barrie's classic tale, set during World War II and following an orphan boy who is kidnapped by pirates and brought to the magical realm of Neverland.

Lily Allen has always had a knack for ribbing guys in her lyrics . Now she's using her new album to do a bit of the same. In an interview on the BBC's "The Graham Norton Show," Allen said her new album -- her first since 2009 -- would bear the exquisite title of "Sheezus," a riff on Kanye West's latest LP. "It's a confident title choice," she said. "And a little nod to Kanye West. " The album, her third, is the follow-up to "It's Not Me, It's You," which topped charts in Britain and hit No. 5 on the U.S. album chart.

Models Nina Agdal, Lily Aldridge and Chrissy Teigen have landed the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit edition's 50th anniversary cover.  The annual cove r, shot by photographer James Macari, was revealed Thursday on "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" with a splashy display outside Kimmel's studio on Hollywood Boulevard and features the three models topless with their bikini bottom-clad backsides to the camera. They're also knee deep in aqua-blue water in the Cook Islands, but who cares about that, right?

Lily Allen attracted a fair bit of controversy in November with the music video for her song " Hard Out Here ," which was accused of objectifying black women even as the song criticizes what Allen views as a culture of objectification. Perhaps that's why the British pop star plays it somewhat safer in her new video. PHOTOS: Musician feuds: The dirt and the detials Posted Thursday on YouTube, Allen's "Air Balloon" clip finds her hanging out in a field with some bearded hippie types, a swarm of brightly colored butterflies and several zebras, one of which she takes a moment to feed by hand.

The Lily Allen comeback continues. After returning to music late last year with the controversial " Hard Out Here " -- which itself followed her guest spot on Pink's " True Love " and her TV-commercial cover of " Somewhere Only We Know " by Keane -- the British singer early Monday released another song expected to appear on her upcoming third studio album. In "Air Balloon," Allen adopts a softer-edged tone than she did in "Hard Out Here," which took delightful aim at the music-industry sexism she evidently experienced in the wake of the birth of her two children.

If you're like most Americans, the question “Where has Lily Allen been for the last four years?” will either be met with a momentary blank stare or a twinkly eye before recalling the snarky, outspoken British pop singer's mid-'00s output. Allen stormed the British charts on the back of her buzzing, acclaimed 2006 album, "Alright, Still," followed a few years later with "It's Not Me, It's You," but soon thereafter put the pop life on hold to become a mother. But why read about it when Allen herself explains it on her new single, “Hard Out Here,” which can be seen as a delayed reply to the  Three 6 Mafia's Oscar winning jam “It's Hard Out Here for a Pimp.” Instead of listing the travails of a male hustler, though, Allen waxes on the many problems that a self-described bitch must deal with.

The idea in the Cookstuff column (April 4) to mix carrots and tulips in a centerpiece might be fatal. Tulips are of the lily family, which is poisonous. I learned in school in Germany never to bring tulips or lilies as presents to a hospital, as the patients get thirsty and sometimes drink from a flower vase. --HELGA KASIMOFF Los Angeles The centerpiece was clearly decorative and no part of it was intended to be consumed--carrots, tulips or water. But it never hurts to warn people anyway.

Pantone announced "dazzling blue" as a *key color for 2014, fashion designers showed many hues of blue on the spring 2014 runways, and we're already seeing the colors of water and sky on the red carpet. I love the blue color story Ahna O'Reilly has been telling on the red carpet lately. On Oct. 21 at the Elle Women in Hollywood celebration, the "CBGB" actress wore a strapless Spring 2013 Monique Lhuillier  dress in an ocean print. PHOTOS: Looks from the red carpet Three nights later, at the Who What Wear and Cadillac 50 Most Fashionable Women of 2013 event, she followed up with a cobalt blue baroque print V-neck cocktail dress from the resort 2014 collection by Indian American designer Bibhu Mohapatra . In keeping with the baroque theme, actress Camilla Belle wore an embroidered porcelain blue Oscar de la Renta dress to the opening of "A Quest for Beauty: The Art of Van Cleef & Arpels" at the Bowers Museum on Oct. 26. Reminiscent of a Faberge egg, the gilded embroidery was as ornate as the jewels inside the museum cases.
