From the rear of the jampacked Theater of Living Arts, she resembled Jean Harlow or Babydoll's Caroll Baker draped with an oversize guitar. Behind a thin gauze of white light, Tanya Donelly - former guitarist for the Throwing Muses and now leader of Belly, alternative-rock's band of the moment - swayed her hips broadly and purred in a childlike voice as she plucked apart the opening chords of "Low Red Moon. " Soon the room began to throb as the band lurched into the song's slow, grinding rhythm and Donelly's voice exploded into a yelping roar.

"I sold my soul to the devil, the price was cheap," goes the voice-over in the edgy, whooshing opening moments of Belly - first-time filmmaker Hype Williams' crackling contemporary gangster movie. The voice belongs to Sincere, a young criminal (played by rapper Nasir "Nas" Jones), who, along with his childhood friend Tommy (Earl "DMX" Simmons), has a lucrative drug trade going out of their swank digs in Queens. As Belly plays out, Sincere and Tommy start to question their accomplishments - and their accoutrements: the gold-plated cars, the gold-chained women, the guns, the powder, the briefcases of cash.

Boston quartet Belly took the stage of the sold-out Theatre of Living Arts on Saturday night to recorded music from Twin Peaks, with disco balls and a glittery curtain as a backdrop. When they stormed into "Dusted" from their 1992 debut, Star (Sire/ Reprise), on the surface it appeared to be this week's great big alternarock event. But frontwoman Tanya Donelly had something to offer both the bodysurfing boys in baseball caps and their dates in floral-print dresses, ducking for cover.

Tanya Donelly stepped alone into a gauzy haze of smoke on the Trocadero stage Sunday night. And with the guitar over her shoulder making her diminutive frame appear even smaller, she picked apart the intro to "Someone to Die For" and began the tune's singsong melody in a brittle, distant voice - an understated beginning to Belly's extraordinarily dynamic set. Since Belly appeared at the Theatre of Living Arts in March, Donelly and her band -...

Last week, I came upon two news stories that left me with the desolate feeling we are approaching a time when the "haves" and "have nots" will be irrevocably separate, unequal and disconnected, no longer linked by even the basic commitment to the well-being of our children. A front-page feature by the Inquirer's Melissa Dribben was headlined "The coming of age of the kiddie party. " It suggested that childhood birthday parties are becoming an outlet for parental competitiveness, an opportunity to display one's success by putting on bashes for kids too young to notice all the hoopla.

A Common Pleas Court jury yesterday put a price of $128,000 on the Phillie Phanatic's overzealous antics at a 1991 church carnival. The jury awarded the money to Carl G. Seidel, 72, and his wife, Arlene, based on the couple's lawsuit contending that the Phanatic knocked down Carl Seidel at the Maternity Blessed Virgin Mary Catholic Church carnival in Northeast Philadelphia on May 15, 1991. After a three-day civil trial, a 10-member jury awarded $100,000 to Seidel, who hobbled to and from the witness stand using a cane, and $28,000 to his wife for loss of his companionship.

Are you a woman who sweats and strains and does hundreds of sit-ups a day but still can't bust that belly bulge? You're not alone. Nine out of 10 women have the same problem, said Yen Leese, a certified personal trainer and a nutrition counselor. "What we are put on earth for is to reproduce, so our fat cells tend to expand from the waist down," said Leese, who is also co-owner of Main Line Personal Health and Image, a Wynnewood gym that specializes in personal training at $50 per session.

Magic Johnson has decreed that the urban movie Belly, which opened Wednesday, will not be seen in his theater chain. In a statement, Magic Johnson Theaters, which operates screens in L.A., Houston and Atlanta, said: "The content and marketing of Belly has raised concerns about the film's overwhelmingly negative and violent depictions of African Americans, as well as its potential to create disruptive situations for our theaters' patrons and...

Of all a woman's body parts, it's hard to imagine one that she is less likely to want to celebrate than . . . her belly. An ample bosom, shapely legs, tiny waist, yes. But a belly? Unless she has abs of steel - and really, who among us does? - there is little reason to exalt. Except, of course, when she is pregnant. Then, a swollen belly is not an ugly, embarrassing protrusion but a graceful, goddess-like monument. It is something to be admired, cherished, maybe even . . . preserved!

A stream of pencil-thin ballet dancers fluttered onto the stage of the Forrest Theatre to the tune of a Madonna song that opens with a baby's coo. Trailing behind was Valerie Amiss, who three months earlier had thrilled audiences with a dazzling portrayal of Dewdrop in The Nutcracker. But on this day, March 15, her claim to fame was that she somehow made a nimble, graceful entrance - belly, that is big belly, first. She was nearly seven months pregnant, and the audience burst into laughter at the surprise.

CLEVELAND - Expectations are soaring. Cory Booker arrives here a day after helping lead a 15-hour Senate filibuster demanding votes on gun laws, and amid chatter about his chances to become Hillary Clinton's running mate. The lunch crowd of roughly 300 Democrats sipping iced tea in a Westin ballroom buzz about the Senate blockade and one of their party's rising stars. Far from New Jersey, many here are already familiar with Booker, a testament to his political celebrity, talent for grabbing attention and broad personal appeal.

THE PEOPLE IN a quiet pocket of West Mount Airy are living in fear. In too many neighborhoods, people fear catching a stray bullet on the street, but on West Sedgwick Street, the fear is two pit bulls. For at least the last three years, neighbors say, they have been terrorized by two red-nose pit bulls, living in a house at 107 W. Sedgwick, who run loose. Ada Brooks, who cares for the dogs, says 85-pound Micah and Zion don't run loose. The breed has a reputation for protectiveness and aggressiveness, according to the American Bully website, unless properly socialized.

DEAR ABBY: I am a single father of teenage boys. I have always played an active role in my children's lives, physically, emotionally, and financially. My older son lives with me; my younger sons live with their mother. I am bisexual and have always been attracted to men and women. It took me a long time to admit it to myself. I suffered from depression for many years as I struggled with my sexual identity. Unfortunately, I was diagnosed with HIV. Since then, I have been on medication and live a very healthy lifestyle.

CBS3 meteorologist Katie Fehlinger, who was pregnancy-shamed last summer, returns to the airwaves on Wednesday. Her twin girls are here, and she's looking as fabulous as ever. How ya like me now? I wish that's what she would say to all the haters and fat-shamers who bullied her when she was hugely pregnant with twins. I'd like to see the face of that obnoxious TV viewer who called her a "sausage in a casing" when Fehlinger shows up on air Wednesday morning, looking as fabulous as ever.

When you're tucked between Philadelphia and Atlantic City, you fight for attention. Unless a huge outlet mall opens in your backyard. That was the case for Blackwood, Gloucester Township, in South Jersey, on Thursday. All eyes were on the grand opening of Gloucester Premium Outlets, just off Route 42 at Exit 7B and a stone's throw from the Atlantic City Expressway entrance. It's not a big deal, said Gloucester Township Mayor David Mayer, who grew up in Runnemede. "This is tremendous," he said.

TIMED to Black History Month, the Smithsonian Channel's new documentary "Legend of Lead Belly" (8 p.m. Monday) sheds lots of light on one of the least-known yet most colorful and influential musicians of the 20th century, an artist "who didn't limit himself to any genre," according to disciple Van Morrison in the show. "House of the Rising Sun" may have been popularized by the Animals, but Huddie Ledbetter (a/k/a Lead Belly) lived it as the "house" musician at a Shreveport, La., bordello.

On my recent study abroad trip to Syracuse, Sicily, there were many incredible sights to see: the sparkling blue ocean that extended to the horizon, the picturesque Italian streets, and then there was me dancing shirtless with a belly dancer while my classmates cheered me on. It was our last night in Italy. We had bonded quite a bit throughout the week, and now we were forced to say goodbye to our tours of temples of Athena, puppet theaters, and the mime who cursed us out for being tourists.

In his sixth year in the NBA, Kyle Lowry - the Villanova University standout who was drafted after his sophomore year, in 2006 - finally had the chance to play regularly. It was now March 2012, and he was a point guard with the Houston Rockets. He knew he could be a star. But that darn pain in his belly was such a distraction. For six months, the tormenting pain below his belly button had shifted from one side to the other. Like many professional athletes, he played through it. Somehow, he could no longer keep the nagging pain out his mind.

Angel Saldana sat in front of a steaming Christmas dinner, feasting on roast beef, candied yams, and green beans. Behind him, a tall Christmas tree sparkled with colored lights and silver tinsel. A duo harmonized on carols. All around, many dug in to hot meals as volunteers bustled through the room, serving food to regulars and new faces, all of whom came for the holiday meal at St. Francis Inn in Kensington. Christmas drew more than 330 people to the Franciscan ministry, which has served a free meal daily since Dec. 16, 1979.

Behind a glass wall in Drexel University's ExCITe Center, a fully pregnant mannequin stands tall with nothing on but a strip of knitted blue fabric around its bulging stomach. The garment, called a belly band, isn't the latest trend in maternity wear; it's an all-knit, wireless fetal monitor. Drexel's Shima Seiki Haute Technology Laboratory creates smart garments with electronic circuitry knitted right in. So instead of a boxy device on your wrist or around your waist, the clothes themselves become a monitor that is flexible, comfortable, and soft.
