The world premiere of Quentin Tarantino's staged reading of his latest script, a post-Civil War western, "The Hateful Eight," is raw, ragged, raucous, riveting. And, as Tarantino promises when the evening presented by Film Independent begins around 8, it is truly one of a kind. As the clock pushed past 11 Saturday night at the Theatre at Ace Hotel, one of those slightly spruced-up gray ladies with sweeping balconies and red velvet chairs that grace downtown L.A., the man in black - from the filmmaker's Stetson to his cowboy boots - begins narrating the final "Hateful" chapter, for the final time ever.

Boy meets Samuel L. Jackson! "The Avengers" star, who appears in Friday's "Avengers" flick "Captain America: The Winter Soldier," recited a slam poem Monday on "The Tonight Show" about the '90s sitcom "Boy Meets World," recapping the show's seven seasons in the beatnik style of poetry. Jackson's three-minute oratory, performed with all the gravitas of "Pulp Fiction's" Jules Winnfield, introduced the show's star, a teenage boy named Cory Matthews (Ben Savage), and his friends, family and love interest.

Spend too much time with 24-hour news networks and it's easy to feel that exposure to that much talk can make you sick. Taking the idea a few steps further, author Ben Marcus imagines a world in which language becomes fatal in "The Flame Alphabet," a powerfully strange and frequently disturbing work that examines the power of words in a new, apocalyptic way. Similar in grim, end-times spirit to Colson Whitehead's zombie-pocalypse novel "Zone One,"...

Best available CB Asante Samuel -- The jewel of New England's secondary, Samuel intercepted 16 passes over the last two seasons and will command a deal similar to the eight-year, $80 million Nate Clements got from San Francisco last year. Eyeing Samuel most closely are the New York Jets, New Orleans and Cleveland. OG Alan Faneca -- Faneca is too pricey for Pittsburgh. The seven-time Pro Bowl player, a great run blocker, could get $20 million guaranteed. The Jets are interested. WR Randy Moss -- Reborn in New England, Moss wants to finish his career with the Patriots.

Morton Feldman, an expressionistic composer who gloried in his iconoclasm as he both irritated and intrigued audiences with esoteric exercises in form and melody, died Thursday of cancer. He was 61 and had been in a hospital in Buffalo, N.Y., near the State University of Buffalo where he had taught for the last 15 years. Although based in New York most of his life, Feldman taught across the country, primarily at conservatories and colleges where his works normally were performed.

In the predawn darkness, the floodlit cathedral looms like a snow-covered mountain over this poor neighborhood. Inside, 15,000 faithful have been waiting for two hours, but they show no sign of fatigue. They are expecting their Moses. Suddenly, a pudgy preacher in a brown suit strides up the marble stairs to the altar, a golden tree trunk. Thousands of worshipers break into chest-heaving sobs. Others furiously wave white handkerchiefs and cry "Glory to Christ!" Samuel Joaquin has arrived.

It was supposed to be a brief stop at the Primadonna casino, 43 miles south of Las Vegas, but one poker game led to another. By 3 a.m. May 25, 1997, Jeremy Strohmeyer and David Cash were tired of hanging around the arcade, waiting for David's dad. Bored, the two 18-year-olds decided to urinate on two coin-operated games. David chose Big Bertha, whose polka-dot dress flared when players hurled balls into her gaping red mouth. Jeremy selected a helicopter game. Then a wall socket.

A retired Los Angeles building inspector was sentenced Monday to 2 1/2 years in prison resulting from a federal probe into bribe-taking at the Department of Building and Safety.

Sam and Samuel - together again. KTLA-TV entertainment reporter Sam Rubin, who gained what he called "global" notoriety last month after Samuel L. Jackson blasted him for confusing the African American actor with Laurence Fishburne during a live interview, faced off with Jackson for the first time since the blowup. Rubin spotlighted his chat with Jackson on a "KTLA Morning News" segment Thursday morning that apparently was meant to take a swipe at some of the harsh criticism Rubin has received over the earlier Jackson interview.

The Galaxy beat Club Tijuana, 1-0, on Wednesday night to win the first game of their two-game quarterfinal series in the CONCACAF Champions League tournament. Galaxy newcomer Samuel Rosa Goncalves, a Brazilian forward known simply as Samuel, scored in the 11th minute in front of 15,159 at StubHub Center. The Galaxy defense, led by Panamanian goalkeeper Jaime Penedo, spent the rest of the game holding back a Club Tijuana attack that became increasingly zealous in the second half.

The Galaxy opens its season Saturday night facing the rival that knocked them out of the playoffs last year: Real Salt Lake. But the Galaxy will field a markedly different team at the StubHub Center after bolstering its ranks with several experienced players during the off-season. The moves were to correct the team's uneven play in 2013. "If there was a weakness last year, it's that we were inconsistent," said Coach Bruce Arena, who last month signed a multiyear contract extension.

Irish actor Barry McGovern is once again gracing our shores with his Beckettian virtuosity. In 2012, he and Alan Mandell starred in a luminous revival of "Waiting for Godot" at the Mark Taper Forum. Now he's at the Kirk Douglas Theatre performing "I'll Go On," his solo show composed of selections of Samuel Beckett's trilogy of novels, "Molloy," "Malone Dies" and "The Unnamable. " McGovern has all the qualities of a superb Beckett interpreter. He relishes the comic brio even at its most scatological and possesses a voice that can draw out all the various hues of the verbal brilliance.

Sometimes the best gifts are the things you wouldn't buy for yourself. One place to start: breakfast in bed. Los Angeles furniture maker Samuel Moyer serves up an affordable luxury in the form of his Hair of the Dog Tray, which he suggests could be used to carry cocktails by night and present pancakes in the morning. The plywood design is about a foot and a half long and available in walnut, ash or cherry finishes. Price: $100. Each tray is made to order, so Moyer said he'll need 10 to 12 days to turn each purchase around.

Samuel Goetz was 14 when the Nazis rounded up Jews in his hometown of Tarnow, Poland, and killed thousands of them - his parents included - in the gas chambers at Belzec in southeast Poland. A few months later, he too was forced out of Tarnow and into the first of several Nazi labor camps in Eastern Europe. "I thought often [about] how I'm going to die," he recalled in a 1999 CNN interview, "whether it's going to be a bullet, would it hurt. I really did not know. " Instead, he was among the survivors.
