Rivers Cuomo has no problem admitting that he sometimes still feels like a teenager. "Maybe I haven't matured in some ways that other 40-year-olds have," the Weezer frontman said in a recent interview. "Or maybe I'm more willing to honor those immature voices inside myself that other 40-year-olds aren't. " He certainly isn't very age-appropriate when performing, which is a good thing for a rock star, even one who's now married with a kid and a degree from Harvard. Back in August, Weezer played the headlining spot in the concert series attached to the U.S. Open of Surfing in Huntington Beach.

We know filmmaker David Lynch for the dark surrealism of "Eraserhead," "Blue Velvet," "Inland Empire" and "Twin Peaks," as well as for his deep, abiding love of coffee. Lynch is also passionate about transcendental meditation, which he first took up "on a beautiful, sunny Saturday morning" in 1973. That passion spawned a book, "Catching the Big Fish," and the David Lynch Foundation for Consciousness-Based Education and World Peace. Lynch spoke about what TM means for him and why others should try it too. Catch the longer podcast at latimes.com/davidlynch.

The local Fire Department and units from all over Southern California set up operations in the parking lot of Meditation Mount to continue battling the flames. At about 4 a.m., as the fire was surrounding the Ojai Valley School on the next hill above Meditation Mount, our residents were told to evacuate.

Father Michael Kennedy looks out at the rows of heads bowed in prayer, the tattooed necks and drab institutional garb of Central Juvenile Hall in Los Angeles. He peers into young hearts wounded by violence and bearing charges of murder, robbery and drug-dealing. Here in these dark, treacherous places, he feels the presence of God.
