  Total time: 10 minutes, plus chilling time THANKSGIVING dinner without cranberries would be as forlorn as if the turkey were missing. Not only are cranberries native to the U.S., recalling that first feast of local foods, but you need that tart-sweet flavor to punctuate all that richness. Cranberry jelly is cranberry jelly, but relish is something else: fresh and complex, with gorgeous crunch and irresistible zing. And all that's involved is a quick chop and mix ?

With some time to kill between performances of "Lucia di Lammermoor" at Los Angeles Opera (the last one is Sunday), the peripatetic James Conlon merely had to cross 1st Street in order to lead the first of three subscription concerts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at Walt Disney Concert Hall on Thursday night. It's hardly news that Conlon seems to be everywhere these days, but it's still a phenomenon worth noting. Indeed, Conlon turned up at the pre-concert lecture and later spent several minutes talking to the audience in the main hall about one of his Recovered Voices subjects: the strange, sad and remarkable career of Erwin Schulhoff.

The Lakers may be hurting their lottery position with three wins over their last five games, but Nick Young wants his team to play spoiler over the remainder of the season. On Tuesday, the Lakers (25-48) gave the New York Knicks a costly 127-96 defeat. On Sunday, they upset the favored Phoenix Suns, 115-99. "Welcome to the players' haters' ball. The players hate us here," said Young after the win.  "We're trying to hate, hate, hate, hate, hate ... New York to Phoenix, it's over.

"I Am Not a Hipster" is the kind of lovingly crafted, deeply affecting drama that gives small indie films a good name. It's also a terrific showcase for first-time feature writer-director Destin Daniel Cretton and his superb leading man, Dominic Bogart. The San Diego-set movie tracks one particularly trying week in the life of Brook Hyde (Bogart), a talented musician so completely at odds with himself - and his art - he can barely function; a seemingly decent guy drowning in bad behavior (his explosive radio interview with an earnest DJ, well-played by Brad William Henke, is a corker)

I devoured with relish Ruth Reichl's "Dishing." I was, however, desolate to learn that I would have to travel all the way to Pomona for a decent pig's uterus. LINDA L. FARKAS Northridge

"My fieriest burger yet! Some people, like me, love spicy burgers. My H-Bomb Burger is a great way to give them just what they want: the H-Bomb with fried serrano chiles, caramelized onions, habanero jack cheese, jalapeno, bacon, tomato, leaf lettuce and slathered with habanero relish and chipotle mayo all on a jalapeno-cheese bun. The devil made me do it!" - Richard Amiel, Cathedral City The H-Bomb Burger Total time: 2 hours, plus at least 24 hours marinating time for the relish and 2 hours chilling time for the burgers.

Susan Carpenter-McMillan is as much a feminist as Peter Botha is an equal rights advocate. Her organization's name, Feminists for Life, is a joke. If one is a true feminist, then one would automatically be pro-choice. Carpenter-McMillan's philosophy is just another excuse to attempt to control others, an activity some people simply relish. The idea of forcing women to carry to term children they do not want, to go through the birth process and then give these children up is a form of punishment for getting pregnant.

BEIRUT - He loves sushi, AK-47s and rocket-propelled grenades. He could be killed at any moment but vows to marry "a beautiful, righteous Muslim girl" as soon as he finds one. He proclaims a "love for justice" but defends beheadings, battlefield executions and sectarian killing. He scorns democracy and extols a fundamentalist interpretation of sharia, or Islamic law. Welcome to the virtual world of Chechclearr, the Internet handle of a self-described Islamic militant who says he is fighting as an Islamist rebel in Syria but also has time to post a copious amount of pictures and comments on the Internet.

Deep in post-production on his weird but wonderful sci-fi romance "Her" this past March, Spike Jonze made the difficult decision to - as the old editing edict goes - kill one of his darlings. The nuanced vocal performance turned in by British actress Samantha Morton, who was portraying a Siri-esque computer operating system who finds herself in a state of deep romantic longing with Joaquin Phoenix's lovelorn, all-too-human divorced character, in the end "wasn't right" for the film.

There are five new Division I basketball coaches in Southern California this year, and of them three are well-known names. Coming to UCLA to try to live up to John Wooden standards is Steve Alford, who once played high school basketball in the same gym where Wooden played prep ball in Indiana. Coming to USC is Andy Enfield, who was teased about his former model wife Wednesday at the Los Angeles Athletic Club Wooden Award Tipoff luncheon. But possibly the most well-known newcomer is former Nevada Las Vegas and NBA star Reggie Theus, who pointed out he had scored more than 19,000 points in the NBA but was willing to take over the woebegone Cal State Northridge program that was 14-17 and 5-13 in the Big West last season under longtime coach Bobby Braswell.

Kurt Busch is like the little engine that could. The stock-car driver lacks the resources deep-pocketed owners lavish on multicar teams, and his main operation is 1,500 miles away from the sport's North Carolina epicenter. Yet the veteran is squarely in the mix in the Chase for the Sprint Cup, NASCAR's 10-race playoff that begins Sunday with the Geico 400 at Chicagoland Speedway in Joliet, Ill. "For us, there's no telling what we can do as a single-car team in this Chase," he said.

"The Heat" has all the elements you'd expect from a buddy cop movie - the oil-and-water partnership, the car chases, the wisecracks - and a few you wouldn't - for instance, a scene involving Spanx. Faithfully conforming to the macho genre made famous by movies such as "Bad Boys" and "Lethal Weapon," "The Heat" is also - curiously - summer's only studio film built around female leads: Sandra Bullock and Melissa McCarthy. "If someone asks what you wanna do and you don't really wanna work, you pick the most farfetched thing," Bullock said.

SACRAMENTO - For just the second time during his 11-year career, Caron Butler has played in as many as 78 regular-season games. And for Butler, being injury-free for the playoffs, which start Saturday for the Clippers, is key. When the Clippers met the Memphis Grizzlies in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs in 2012, Butler suffered a broken left hand in Game 1. He missed Game 2 but played in the rest of the Clippers'...

Your article ("Feinstein Learns the Life of a Rookie," April 9) finally made clear to me why we must have term limitations. I always believed that we already had a perfect system of getting rid of bad legislators; we could simply vote them out of office. Your article makes it clear to me that people like West Virginia Democrat Sen. Robert Byrd (elected in 1959) have been in Congress too long. These people have become power hungry and will not step down until they are forced to. Their greed and self-centeredness should cause their own demise.

Sally Ride doesn't look like a woman outrageous enough to sit on top of a stack of enormous flaming rockets. There's absolutely nothing about her refined appearance or manner to suggest she has the grit to travel into the great, dark, airless abyss strapped to the seat of a hurtling piece of machinery. She's small, reserved, a reluctant heroine uneasy with eminence, a self-possessed but distant star who navigates her rarefied universe with quiet control.

Adam Scott, you just won the 2013 Masters tournament! What are you going to do next? Have a beer with Greg Norman and share a Vegemite sandwich with Men At Work! OK, the second part isn't true (not that I know of, anyway), but it wouldn't be all that surprising considering the way all of Australia seems to be reacting after a native claimed the coveted green jacket for the first time. "By any means, this is a historic day for Australian sport," Prime Minister Julia Gillard said . "All Australians will be marveling in [Scott's]

NEW YORK - Like world-class athletes, actors often measure their achievements by the degree of difficulty. Does a part require an unusual amount of range? An extraordinary number of man hours? Is it simply a matter of a chewy set of lines to get one's lips around? By all these standards, Alan Cumming would be an extreme-sports medalist. In a stage turn that will last nearly two hours, Cumming is set to play the part of Macbeth. Or, rather, the parts of Macbeth, as he tackles 15 roles from the Shakespearean tragedy, including the title character, Banquo, Duncan, Lady Macbeth and plenty of others (as well as, in a story that frames the performance, a disoriented mental patient reenacting the play)
