What would an image-obsessed film geek wear to a school shooting - the one that he'll commit? In the funny-creepiest moment of "The Dirties," a masterful blend of black humor and queasy dread, high school student Matt (Matt Johnson, who also directed and co-wrote) runs through a montage of possibilities. Adidas tear-away pants for a facade of innocent normalcy? A T-shirt with the cover of "The Catcher in the Rye" ("Crazy killers are always obsessed with 'The Catcher in the Rye,'" Matt notes)

Excerpts Here is the opening of J.D. Salinger's "The Catcher in the Rye," narrated by Holden Caulfield, a tormented prep-school flunk-out who is headed for mental collapse. If you really want to hear about it, the first thing you'll probably want to know is where I was born, and what my lousy childhood was like, and how my parents were occupied and all before they had me, and all that David Copperfield kind of crap, but I don't feel like going into it, if you want to know the truth.

In one episode of the sitcom “Seinfeld,” George Costanza tries to impress his girlfriend by joining a book club. The first book he has to read is “Breakfast at Tiffany's,” by Truman Capote. For George, the novella is a slog: “If it's not about sports, I find it very hard to concentrate,” he says. So he watches the movie adaptation of the novel instead. Most people, in turns out, have done something like that to try to look smarter than they really are, according to a new British survey of 2,000 people.

For Christmas, a friend gave me some superb smoked salmon from Tasmania. That's something I love to eat on rye bread. Those chocolate black pumpernickel loaves are just too strong tasting so the delicate fish. And so began my search for the perfect rye bread. I tried this one and that one. And then I walked into Copenhagen Pastry in Culver City for a slice of Kringle and spotted loaves of rye high on the counter. How had I missed them before? I guess I was so intent on my Danish pastry fix that the bread just didn't register.

At 10:30 on an achingly beautiful Tuesday morning, the Enabler walked into an unassuming bar in Glendale called Neat. The furious weekend rains had fled, draining the sky of gray and leaving in its place the ice cold blue of Veronica Lake's eyes. It was whiskey weather, and the Enabler craved a warming snort. Neat was not usually open at such an early hour, but its owner — the wisecracking mixologist and cocktail consultant Aidan Demarest — had agreed to meet the Enabler to talk about his new bar and show off his more than 300 bottles of carefully curated spirits, which he serves straight up (called "neat" by liquor lovers)

Four men -- presumably very hungry men -- have been arrested in Newport Beach on suspicion of breaking into a car and stealing a sandwich. A $10 sandwich. The locked car was parked on Newport Center Drive when a man approached the vehicle around dinnertime Sunday, let himself into the car by reaching through a partially lowered window and scooped up the sandwich , a witness told police. The suspected sandwich thief then jumped into a waiting car with three other men, police reported.

In JONATHAN EVISON'S quirky debut novel "All About Lulu," the first thing Will Miller does is warn the reader: "I'm going to give you all the Copperfield crap, and I'm not going to apologize for any of it." It's a spunky move, both alluding to and rejecting Holden Caulfield's opening line from "The Catcher in the Rye." With a wink, Evison lets us know that he's aware of the territory, and that he's setting out in a different direction.

You want new? You want trendy? You want fancy food? Then maybe, says Gary Canter, you don't want Canter's, his family's deli, which doesn't do change. "People don't need pheasant under glass, with grilled asparagus and 19 sauces," says Canter, 52, who started working behind the bakery counter at 13. "Just give them simple food. Just give them a sandwich. " The Canter's menu is, in fact, long and diverse. You can order blintzes, hot roast tongue, a quesadilla, tortellini, fried kippers.

J.D. Salinger, the 90-year-old creator of "The Catcher in the Rye," as protective of his copyright as he is of his privacy, is seeking an injunction against the writer, publishers and distributor of a spinoff of the author's famous 1951 novel. Lawyers for Salinger filed the lawsuit in federal court in Manhattan on Monday, seeking to force a recall of what it says is a copycat book titled "60 Years Later: Coming Through the Rye," by someone writing under the name John David California.

When news emerged three years ago that filmmaker Shane Salerno and writer David Shields were working on a lengthy oral biography (with accompanying documentary) about J.D. Salinger, I assumed it would be all smoke and no fire. Salinger, after all, had gone to ground after the publication of his novella “Hapworth 16, 1924” in the June 19, 1965, issue of the New Yorker; even in the wake of his death, in January 2010 at age 91, his estate had preserved the silence of his final 45 years.

Avoiding gluten is the treatment, though there is no cure.

Brewers have long used anything and everything they can as a source of fermentable sugars in their mix of brewing grains -- called the "grist", but malted barley is by far the favored grain. Barley is full of the enzymes needed to properly convert the starches contained in its kernels to the sugars that the yeast can eat, and it's fibrous husk eases the brewing process. Wheat is another very popular ingredient that is important to many styles of beer, but it is better suited to bread-baking than it is to brewing.

Charles Bukowski, the hard-living poet, novelist and short-story writer who probed the cultural and social underbelly of Los Angeles, is getting the James Franco treatment. The prolific actor-director-writer-producer has started production on a movie titled "Bukowski," an adaptation of the boozy poet's semi-autobiographical novel "Ham on Rye," which is set in Depression-era L.A. The project is one of several low-budget movies contributing to a modest upswing in local feature film activity this year.

Reclusive author J.D. Salinger will be given the full biography treatment, thanks to Shane Salerno, David Shields and Simon & Schuster. Shields and Salerno's "The Private War of J.D. Salinger" will be published by Simon & Schuster in September of this year. The author of "The Catcher in the Rye" famously withdrew from public life in 1953 and for more than 50 years closely guarded his privacy, including suing to prevent one biographer from using material from his unpublished letters.

The Enabler has been fixating on love. What is it? How to find it? What feeds it? The answer to this last question, she is quite certain, is whiskey. Which is why on a recent evening she found herself contemplatively sipping a glass of 127-proof Four Roses cask strength single barrel bourbon at Pasadena's new whiskey bar, the Blind Donkey. The Blind Donkey is the work of the beer-minded men behind Verdugo Bar, the Surly Goat and the Little Bear, and as such it exudes a pleasing masculinity.
