They're an odd couple. One is short, the other tall. One is reserved, the other voluble. One looks after the money. The other says he cares only about art. Together, Robert Faust, the short, reserved one, and Thomas Ethan Harris--with more than a little help from their friends--have given birth to a festival that, in five short years, has established itself as one of the premier showcases for new cinematic talent. They've done it, they say, by striking the proper balance.

Plumbers remodeling the Torrey Pines Road residence Thursday found the volatile, leaking dynamite in a crawl space under the living room, authorities said.

With a new sponsor in the fold, the second edition of the five-day Los Angeles Independent Film Festival will begin Thursday at the Directors Guild with "Dead Man," Jim Jarmusch's droll and sure-to-be-controversial allegorical western starring Johnny Depp. The Sundance Channel has signed on as a sponsor, joining the Filmmakers Foundation and founding backers Eastman Kodak and the Directors Guild of America. Also participating this year will be the Independent Feature Project West.

Pilobolus' newest work of dance theater may well be the raunchiest in the company's 17-year history. Not the nudest or sexiest, but the most deliberately, uncompromisingly gross. Introduced to local audiences on Wednesday at the Doolittle Theatre, "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone" uses a jukebox full of Elvis Presley records to accompany a lampoon of sexual attitudes in the early rock 'n' roll era. "Love ain't never easy," warns a narrator imitating Presley's speech.

For the fourth year in a row, the 48-year-old Costa Mesa resident has paddled the 32 miles from Catalina Island to Manhattan Beach to raise money for cancer research. For 6 hours and 46 minutes on Sunday, alternately lying or kneeling on his 12-foot paddleboard, Rogers propelled himself across the ocean amid 60 other contestants in the annual Catalina Challenge paddleboard race.

Two things that can't be conveyed in a photograph: the ugliness of the facade of the new James A. Doolitle Theatre in Hollywood (formerly the Huntington Hartford), and the beauty of its first show, Martha Clarke's "The Garden of Earthly Delights." The first brings to the mind's eye the image of the Hartford facade as we have known it since the 1950s, coupled with the devout wish that it had been left alone.

Three miles into his 32-mile journey from Catalina to Manhattan Beach Sunday morning, Mike Rogers sat on his 12-foot, 20-pound paddleboard and experienced a new kind of pain. "I felt this pop," Rogers said. "It felt like a knife stuck into my heart. The pain was insane." But then, Rogers remembered why he started his third annual "Paddle for the Cure." He remembered how lymphatic cancer claimed the life of his father-in-law. He remembered his commitment to raise money for cancer research.
