Reporting from Memphis, Tenn. It took an extra 10 minutes, an eternity in this never-draw-a-breath season, but the Lakers finally improved their road record. They got tired of the suddenly unstoppable Marreese Speights and did something about it. They countered with some force of their own, splashed in a little finesse, and beat the short-handed Memphis Grizzlies in double overtime, 116-111, Tuesday at FedEx Forum. Andrew Bynum had the type of game that sends whispers around the league, scoring 37 points on 15-for-18 shooting and also taking 16 rebounds, all against fellow All-Star center Marc Gasol.

Katy Perry will hit the road next year in support of her album " Prism ," the pop star announced Monday. The news came in a wee-hours tweet from Perry, who wrote that she was "ecstatic" to reveal the initial dates of what she's calling the Prismatic World Tour. Set to launch May 7 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, the trek is to wind its way through England and Scotland before ending up at London's O2 Arena for three shows May 27-30. Perry's support act for the British run will be Icona Pop, the Swedish duo responsible for the shouty stadium-rave hit " I Love It .

"Mexico: Splendors of Thirty Centuries," at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art through Dec. 29, is the centerpiece of a festival that in its scope is comparable only to the Olympic Arts Festival. Besides LACMA, a good dozen other museums and galleries have mounted related shows. And gallery art is just the beginning. Photography, film, music, cuisine and dance are all copiously represented. Beauty may be its own excuse for being, but so much beauty, all from one place, all at once. . .

The coming of age of horror cinema in Thailand might seem like an odd subject for the Princess of Thailand to address. But it was Halloween night, after all, and Princess Ubolratana Rajakanya had good reason to single out the Southeast Asian nation's growing reputation as a hub for slasher, horror and monster films. The princess was leading a delegation of Thai officials, including the country's deputy prime minister and minister of commerce, in their first Los Angeles "road show" to promote the country's resources, talent and desirability as a film location.

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- Dustin Brown continued to build his playoff reputation and the Kings again thrived on the road. The Kings captain had a first-period assist and then scored the game-winning goal 2 minutes and 11 seconds into the third period in a 4-2 victory over the Phoenix Coyotes on Sunday at Jobing.com Arena in the Western Conference final opener.. It was the Kings' sixth road victory during these Stanley Cup playoffs and eighth in a row dating to last postseason. With the score tied, 2-2, Slava Voynov found a streaking Brown, who barreled in from center ice and flicked a wrist shot past Phoenix goaltender Mike Smith.

The killing of theater impresario Roy Radin in June, 1983, was originally considered just another unsolved homicide case. But investigators soon uncovered a complex trail of drugs, corruption and dizzying amounts of cash. In Southern California, the country near the town of Gorman is remarkably rugged. There are ravines and gullies where the terrain is steep and irregular, rising and falling sharply.

MINNEAPOLIS -- A few more road starts like the one he turned in Thursday, and the Angels may be ready to fire up the bus for the Ervin Across America Tour.

The sculpture is as close to an official traffic stopper as the law allows: A stick figure with an upraised, white-gloved hand, it is one of 19 artworks that Hyattstown residents have placed along a road in hopes of slowing the cars speeding past their front doors. "If you see one, then all of a sudden, you start looking and, hopefully, your initial reaction is to slow down," said Linda Tetens, an artist who helped organize the project.

SAN FRANCISCO -- Twitter executives made an appearance Friday on Wall Street as they prepared to kick off a road show to pitch the company's initial public offering to investors. As is traditional, Chief Executive Dick Costolo and finance chief Mike Gupta made the rounds of some of the banks leading the IPO. They began the morning by paying a visit to Morgan Stanley, where they were greeted by a ticker that said “WELCOME @TWITTER TO @MORGAN STANLEY.” They also visited JPMorgan Chase and Goldman Sachs Group.

Fans of the teen mystery series "Veronica Mars" have been clamoring for a movie ever since the show was canceled in 2007. Now they may finally get their wish, but it's going to cost them. Star Kristen Bell and creator Rob Thomas have paired up to launch a Kickstarter campaign and hope to raise $2 million by April 13. If their goal is reached and it appears there are enough fans willing to fork over money for a product they haven't yet seen, Thomas and Bell say Warner Bros. has agreed to fund production of the film version.

Also missing in action Tuesday was the company's slickly produced video to pump up interest in the IPO.

'Today' Switch Delayed a Week: The debut of the latest incarnation of the "Today" show has been pushed back to June 11. Joe Garagiola and Faith Daniels had been scheduled to start Monday. But the show will be broadcasting from Washington Monday through Wednesday, and producers said it would be too complicated to put on a road show and introduce new cast members at the same time.

"It's the movie that's trying desperately to get made." That's how producer Donna Dubrow describes "Road Show," the romantic action-adventure about a contemporary cattle drive--that might star Sean Connery and Cher. "Serious discussions are underway. We're keeping our fingers crossed," reveals Dubrow, who's teamed on the project with husband John McTiernan (director of "The Hunt for Red October"), who'll produce and direct for 20th Century-Fox.

He's confronting Republicans in the House chamber and on a sunny tarmac in front of the cameras. He's singing Al Green and busting out corny jokes. He's trying out his Spanish and taking off the necktie. It looks like the sometimes-aloof, overly cerebral President Obama has gotten some of his mojo back. Perhaps getting out of Washington has been the tonic, or perhaps it's the sight of Republican presidential contenders in Florida beating up one another in a barrage of television ads. Whatever the cause, the effect has been on clear display.

Zynga Inc., creator of FarmVille and other social games, is fixing to reap a billion-dollar bumper crop from its initial public offering after company executives spend the next two weeks trying to convince potential investors that their 4-year-old firm is worth $9 billion or more. The valuation of the San Francisco online game publisher, derived from documents filed Friday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, would put Zynga on par with Electronic Arts Inc., valued at $7.7 billion, even though EA's revenue is roughly three times that of Zynga's.
