I know it's early, but if I was making my Oscar picks for the first half of 2001, one guy (no, it wouldn't be Tom Green) already has a best actor slot reserved on the list: Kaleil Isaza Tuzman. The name doesn't ring a bell? That's because Isaza Tuzman, though as handsome as Ben Affleck and as charismatic as Ewan McGregor, isn't an actor. He's a 30-year-old investment banker turned dot-com impresario who provides the dramatic kick for "Startup.

The century-old Buddhist temple is for sale. The asking price for its gilded columns and marble stairs is $1.1 million. But the cost to a blighted corner of this city and to the area's Japanese American community is not as easily estimated. Indeed, during this Obon season — when Buddhists remember the dead — the decision to abandon the landmark Fresno Betsuin Buddhist Temple balances two basic tenets of the faith: honoring ancestors and accepting the impermanence of all things.

Edward S. Cobb, a prominent civil engineer and civic leader in the early part of the last century, might be more than a little surprised to see the fanciful new life bestowed on an electrical substation he designed circa 1906 for the no-nonsense purpose of powering streetcars. These days the imposing brick Huron Substation, located a block off bustling Figueroa Street in Cypress Park, hosts movie shoots, art shows and other "special events." And it's a unique home for owner Meike Kopp, her son, Anton, 12, her mother and the family's cat and two dogs.

Windy Kaytis was just a toddler when her mother packed her off to the El Toro Marine Corps Air Station in 1973 to wait with other military families for a chance to greet then-President Richard Nixon, who reached out and shook her tiny hand. Twenty-four years later, Kaytis and her fiance, Brad Horton, both of Orange, will be the first couple married in the Pat Nixon Amphitheater at the Richard Nixon Library & Birthplace in Yorba Linda, dedicated this month by benefactors Bob and Delores Hope.

Regular patrons of the Da Camera Society's Chamber Music in Historic Sites series have come to expect dramatic, ad hoc venues, as the series lands in finer structures around the Southland. An unusual degree of serendipity arose Sunday afternoon, when the striking British duo of violinist Thomas Bowes and pianist Eleanor Alberga performed in the Ross House in Malibu. This neo-streamline moderne structure is perched directly over the ocean--whose heightened activity of late has made headlines.

Spend a couple of hours with your intended trying to plan your wedding via the Internet, and you'll either be headed for elopement or splitsville. There's little romance in trying to visit what must be thousands of wedding-related sites. Without the pressure of impending nuptials--some of us got married in the dark ages of the '80s, when a phone book and the advice of friends worked quite well, thank you--we tried to winnow the field to a few noteworthy webbing sites. (Love that Internet humor.

Tears of joy aren't all that is flowing when brides and grooms meet at Los Angeles' most unexpected wedding spot. That's because a sewage treatment plant is the newest destination for couples seeking an unforgettable place to pledge to love one another through thick and thin.

The search for the perfect wedding site in the San Fernando Valley is like the hunt for the perfect home. Three things matter the most: location, location, location. "That's what everyone asks about first," said Darian Mathias, who operates a location service in Sherman Oaks. "That's what sets the tone for everything." The Valley offers a venue for everyone--the intimate country chapel, the spacious Western ranch, the quaint bed and breakfast, and the unusual airport restaurant.

Ann Marie Duffy and Joseph Rawlings Thompson -- plus their families, friends and, most important, their wedding planner -- were not going to let fire disrupt the most important day of their lives. And so, the couple from Tampa, Fla., were married Saturday at the Wild Animal Park, with 125 guests in attendance and a few curious shoebill storks looking on.

Going to church Sunday mornings is probably not the dress-up affair it once was. Still, the hiking boots, flannel shirts and backpacks encountered at the Rancho del Rey Christian Camp's Sunday service would be considered casual even by '90s standards. But that is the way the camp's minister likes it. "It's definitely a 'come as you are' rustic setting," said Tom Hatcher, chaplain and director of the 130-acre Ojai Valley camp.
