Garth Brooks' budget-priced, six-CD boxed set "The Limited Series" was the nation's best-selling album last week. The package sold about 372,000 copies during its first week in stores, according to SoundScan, and was one of five albums that entered the chart in the Top 10. The others: LeAnn Rimes' "Sittin' on Top of the World" at No. 4, Tori Amos' "From the Choirgirl Hotel" at No. 5, the "Ally McBeal" soundtrack at No. 7 and rapper Fiend's "There's One in Every Family" at No. 8.

It looks like the perfect spot for Valentine's Day. At least that's the idea in "No Strings Attached," the new Ashton Kutcher and Natalie Portman movie about a couple who denies being a couple until someone makes a startling/inevitable declaration of love. The setting for this confession, familiar to many locals by now, is an artwork by Chris Burden called "Urban Light": some 200 vintage lampposts arranged to create a forest of lights that you can walk through on the campus of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art or drive by on Wilshire Boulevard.
