There was a tangible feeling of the '60s in the air when Dionne Warwick and Burt Bacharach kicked off their opening medley on Friday, the first of their two nights at the Cerritos Center for the Performing Arts. Songs such as "Walk On By," "Do You Know the Way to San Jose" and "I Say a Little Prayer" called up visions of bell-bottoms, Nehru jackets, Peter Max posters and episodes of "Laugh-In."

By Kari Howard This week, I came across a website called Six Word Stories . The website, its creators say, was inspired by a bet from Ernest Hemingway's pals that he couldn't write a story in six words. So I thought I'd do six-word versions of this week's five Great Reads. (No, I'm not giving Hemingway's story until afterward. It would be like having the Beatles as your opening band.) “She was done with hate. Freedom.” “Papa. Mama. Why did they leave?” “The big break, with $10 water.” “Pi are squared?

What aims for Hitchcockian slyness ends up an inconsequential jumble in the comedy thriller "The Perfect Host. " Co-writer-director Nick Tomnay first introduces on-the-lam criminal John (Clayne Crawford) — fresh from a robbery that's left him bleeding — who cons his way into the well-appointed home of Warwick (David Hyde Pierce), a kind yet snobbish single guy setting up for a dinner party. We know John's secret, but Warwick's is a little more sinister, involving imaginary guests and a grisly scrapbook detailing how he prefers his meticulously hosted evenings to progress.

Singer Dionne Warwick says AIDS education campaigns must target minorities, and in words that are understandable to those who don't have a high-school diploma. The Grammy-winning singer told an international AIDS and ethics forum Tuesday that health officials have reached the educated, white, gay male population. "We must develop new models that are culturally sensitive and community-specific," Warwick said in calling for "bilingual" AIDS educators who also know the language of the streets.

It was my great good fortune to have met Hal David, who was introduced to me by Eddy Wolpin - the man who ran Famous Music in New York's fabled Brill Building at 1619 Broadway. I had been out on the road conducting and playing piano for the Ames Brothers and had decided to quit and come back to New York City to try and write pop songs. In those days, the Brill Building, also known as the Music Factory, was filled with songwriters playing musical chairs, writing with different partners each day. I worked with Hal maybe two afternoons a week.

In many ways, too many ways, HBO's new comedy "Life's Too Short" is "Extras" with a dwarf. If that sounds harsh and potentially offensive, well, "Life's Too Short" is that too. It is also, at times, extremely funny. A faux documentary starring the very talented Warwick Davis ("Willow," the "Harry Potter" series) as a down-market version of himself, "Life's Too Short" is another way for creators Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant to look at the reeking underbelly of the entertainment industry.

Here's an interesting Sauvignon Blanc from the beautiful Stellenbosch wine region of South Africa and Warwick Estate, which dates to 1770. It's named for professor Malcolm "Blackie" Black, horticulturist at the University of Stellenbosch. Ripe and lush, the 2003 is the opposite of, say, high-strung Sauvignon Blanc from the Loire Valley. This one has a scent of the tropical and a taste of green apple.
