A shiny new Grammy for his remix of No Doubt's "Hella Good" has DJ Roger Sanchez looking forward to a little more public interest in his own music. "When I come out with the next album, people will be like, 'Oh, didn't he win a Grammy for remixer? I wonder what his own stuff sounds like?' " he says. If recognition at home has been slower in coming to Sanchez than in Europe, where he's been a hot commodity for years, it's partly his own doing.

"What I want is to show people that good and evil live in the same place." This is Roger Sanchez musing about the editorial policy of the Comic Weekly, a tabloid he directs here, which, according to its masthead, is the Magazine of Humor, Marxism, Sex and Violence. And this is Sanchez musing about his nation: "I've become an atheist in terms of our state and society," he says from the back stoop of his small office, which was plunged into darkness in one of Managua's frequent power outages.

Her screams were heard by residents of the 195-unit condominium complex in which she lived, but more than three hours passed before anyone called the police. Fortunately, we now have an example of high regard for the well-being of one's neighbors.

Going into a large-scale rave is not unlike entering the Las Vegas strip. Both offer sensory barrages, escape from the everyday and the opportunity to squander plenty of money. The rave culture also seems to be following the Las Vegas model of trying to constantly outdo itself.
