Considering Mitchell Gold's and Bob Williams' affinity for traditional-modern hybrid designs -- a Scandinavian-style Windsor chair from their spring collection features Tibetan fur cushions -- their new location in Beverly Hills, not far from modern showrooms in West Hollywood, and around the corner from Crate & Barrel and Pottery Barn, seems well situated. Gold said the new Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams showroom is about three times the size of the former studio on Third Street in Los Angeles . "We are expanding our retail stores throughout the country," he said.

Drum heads. When he's not playing tight end, the 6-foot, 185-pound senior plays drums, sings backup vocals and writes lyrics for three bands. He pounds out solos for Interfere, a heavy metal band; plays fills for Meadows, a soft rock band; and whacks out rim shots for The Circuit, a classic rock band. All three groups play original music and while they usually play at parties and dances, Meadows played to good-sized crowds at The Whiskey and The Roxy on the Sunset Strip in Hollywood.

When Willie Mitchell suffered a concussion almost two years ago, getting back to hockey became secondary to living a normal life. "It's tough. You can't do anything. You can't read. You can't drive your car. It hurts," said Mitchell, the Kings defenseman who was then with the Vancouver Canucks. "Living in pain, it's almost like, I always say, it's like a snippet into a terminal illness, so to speak. It gives you a little snippet because not only physically it bothers you. But it's also the emotional aspect of it, as well as that.

The Marriage Plot A Novel Jeffrey Eugenides Farrar, Straus & Giroux: 406 pp., $28 For a while there, it looked like the novel was a goner. This was after the French theorist invasion, when the ideas of Lacan and Derrida caught fire with American academics, turning the study of English inside out. Language was slippery, its meaning elusive, narrative old-fashioned, they said; the straightforward march of an imagined story across a page was a sham. In the early 1980s, Charles Dickens was out; Donald Barthelme was in. This is the world in which Madeleine wakes up, hungover, on her graduation day in Jeffrey Eugenides' new novel, "The Marriage Plot.

What causes wars, and what causes fightings among you? Is it not your passions that are at war in your members? The Epistle of James, 3:16-4:6 When that Epistle was read at St. Athanasius Episcopal Church in Echo Park on Sunday, many parishioners felt the shock of recognition. There is, after all, a war raging in the parish. The war centers around whether or not the Rev. Ian Mitchell should remain as rector of what is the oldest Protestant congregation in Los Angeles.

Arriving less than a week after the high-profile death of Pentecostal pastor and reality-show star Jamie Coots by snakebite, the religious thriller "Holy Ghost People" is well poised to exploit fears of an already misunderstood spiritual minority. "Holy Ghost People" takes its name from a 1967 documentary by Peter Adair that captures the soul of a politically progressive West Virginia congregation that handles snakes and speaks in tongues. Director Mitchell Altieri's disappointing feature makes nasty beasts of the very people Adair strived to humanize, portraying them as violent, intolerant hicks straight out of central casting.

DETROIT - Defenseman Jake Muzzin's emotions swung quickly Thursday from exhilaration to exasperation. The 24-year-old scored the Kings' first goal against St. Louis - his first point in 15 games - but was responsible for the Blues' equalizer after his shot on goal was blocked and turned into a breakaway for T.J. Oshie. Muzzin impeded Oshie, who was awarded a penalty shot and scored. "Stuff's going to happen. There's no sense dwelling on it or letting it affect the rest of your game," he said Friday after the Kings practiced at Joe Louis Arena.

One of the hoariest misrepresentations in the anti-Social Security arsenal reappeared over the weekend, in the hands of Cato Institute tax analyst Daniel J. Mitchell. The claim is that Social Security hurts black workers.  Mitchell's piece was published by under the headline " Government-Run Social Security Is Bad News for Blacks and Other Minorities. " Since the evidence is strong that Social Security has helped keep millions of black families -- among millions of other Americans -- out of poverty, it's worthwhile to examine where Mitchell goes wrong.

It is not a 100% return to health - not that any NHL team is ever completely without issues - but the Kings are inching toward that elusive goal. On hand Friday in practice for Saturday's game at Nashville were defenseman Willie Mitchell and goalie Jonathan Quick . It is the first trip Quick has taken with his teammates since he suffered a strained groin at Buffalo on Nov. 12. Mitchell suffered an upper-body injury at Ottawa on the Kings' last trip. Quick's presence is a definite sign of progress, considering Coach Darryl Sutter had indicated recently he did not think Quick would make this trip.

CHICAGO -- Defenseman Willie Mitchell won't play for the Kings on Sunday against the defending Stanley Cup champion Blackhawks. Coach Darryl Sutter said Mitchell is sick and stayed at the team's hotel here instead of coming to the rink for the finale of this four-game trip. “Afternoon games are hard on those old guys,” Sutter said, jokingly. Defenseman Matt Greene, activated last week after he recovered from an upper-body injury, was poised to replace Mitchell and play for the first time since Nov. 2 Mitchell had suffered an apparent upper-body injury in the first period of the Kings' 5-2 victory at Ottawa on Saturday but returned for the second period before skipping the third.

Early on in writer-director Jessie McCormack's "Expecting" - about female friendship, marriage and pregnancy - there's an unhurried, amiable but tension-filled vibe that suggests Nicole Holofcener's perceptive comedies. Lizzie (Radha Mitchell) wants a baby, her husband, Peter (John Dore), might not, but they accept an offer from Lizzie's caustic kook of a best friend, Andie (Michelle Monaghan) - pregnant after a one-night stand - to hand over Andie's child to them when born. The movie's early promise fades, however, as an Apatowian crassness descends upon the comic situations, churlishness gets mistaken for rawness, and sweetness starts to feel manipulative instead of natural.

Little by little, the Kings are starting to adopt some of the speech patterns of a certain Canadian. Some, but not all of Coach Darryl Sutter's favorite sayings. "Park it and move on, right? As Darryl says," Kings defenseman Willie Mitchell said Sunday morning. "Park and ride, right? I think he said it best is that we've done that since he's been here with games we've won. And I think you've got to do that with games you lose. " After their performance in a 2-1 loss to Calgary on Saturday, the Kings will have to park and ride with uncommon speed.
