Johnny, 12, likes playing basketball, football and video games. He also enjoys swimming, hiking, listening to music on the radio, and drawing action figures from television. One talent he is working to perfect is magic. His main area of expertise so far is card tricks. There is neglect in Johnny's background, and he receives therapy to help him manage his anger, control impulsive behavior, and express his feelings. He receives medication for an attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder.

Hollywood goes online with "Johnny Mnemonic," the first of several big- budget summer movies aimed at the so-called cyberpunk culture. Tailoring movies to this computer generation appears to be problematic - one national magazine, for instance, felt the need to provide the phonetic spelling of "mnemonic" in case the intended audience couldn't pronounce it. So I'll simplify things for the computer set with some digital lingo - "Johnny Mnemonic"...

Phoenix, a moody post-Holocaust noir, stars the formidable German actress Nina Hoss. It's cowritten and directed by Christian Petzold, who shepherded Hoss through 2012's taut East-West thriller Barbara . Like the latter film, Phoenix finds its protagonist moving anxiously along the borders of postwar Germany, telling lies as if she believed them. Unlike Barbara , though, which took place in 1980 with the Stasi's informants everywhere, Phoenix is set in Berlin immediately after the Allied Forces' liberation of the camps.

Johnny, the nocturnal drifter of Naked, wanders through London's shabby rowhouse blocks like a New Testament prophet warning of the apocalypse, his lightning tongue electrifying those cockneys he does not merely shock. Johnny's exodus from his native Manchester and his food- and sleep-deprived nights in London streets and flats is the subject of Mike Leigh's furious film, one that plunges this director of whimsical comedies (Life is Sweet, High Hopes) into startlingly unfamiliar depths.

Johnny, a lanky 15-year-old with a smile bright enough to sell toothpaste, never thought twice about the dangers of working in a crack house. All that mattered to Johnny (not his real name) was cash - $325 a week to start. But the lure of fast, easy money and the life that went with it seems to be catching up with Johnny, the father of a six-month-old boy. After being beaten by his alleged crack house employers in May, Johnny became a witness for the district attorney's office and testified against Victor Chandler, 25, a native of Barbados with alleged Jamaican ties, and five other adults who are charged with drug-related offenses.

I'M SICK of people griping and moaning about how the police are so unfair and crying racism when there are police shootings, or they've arrested their poor little Johnny. But what are police supposed to do when Johnny is shooting at them, robbing an elderly person for some weed, or victimizing a law-abiding citizen? Get real. Bhoke S. Lumumba Philadelphia

Johnny Mnemonic answers the pressing question, just exactly what is inside Keanu Reeves' brain? As we have long suspected, not a whole lot. For as Johnny, the hero of this future schlock based on William Gibson's cyberpunk story set in 2021, Reeves is a courier with an empty head. He has downloaded grey matter - including childhood memories - so that he can upload 360 gigabytes of data and smuggle it from Beijing to the Free City of Newark. Unfortunately, Johnny's cerebral capacity is only 180 gigabytes.

The Black Horse Pike might as well be the Berlin Wall. The highway is hardly the only thing separating the dueling Hogbins - Johnny and Kathy Hogbin on the east side and Frank and Linda Hogbin on the west. The two brothers and their wives own competing nursery and landscaping businesses across the blacktop from one another in Cecil, a section of Gloucester County's Monroe Township, halfway between Philadelphia and the Jersey Shore. Both Hogbins sell mulch, desert yucca plants, and Edward Scissorhands-like sculpted shrubs.

As engrossing as it is repulsive, "Naked" is the chronicle of an acerbic, people-hating man and his descent into a modern hell that offers him no hope, but plenty of material for sarcastic jokes. Here's one of his pickup lines: "Has it ever occurred to you that you've already experienced the happiest moment of your life, and all you have to look forward to is sickness and purgatory?" The author of this line, Johnny (David Thewlis, who is amazing) has utter contempt for all people, himself included.

They say "Johnny can't read" and it looks like one of those Johnnies got a job with the company that makes highway signs. Can you find the spelling error in this sign at the I-95 entrance on Morris Street? Hint: it's in the word "airport. " Lois Marasco, of the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, blamed the goof on the sign makers and guaranteed it would be corrected.

Jimmy Buffett. Johnny Depp. Nick Nolte. Me. Common denominator? Hawaiian shirts, and they're back in style. Wearing one is a statement. Now that they are "in," the joy-deprived haters must crawl back into their button-down or plaid tunnels. I feel vindicated. Proof they're back was provided July 10 when fashion columnist Elizabeth Wellington announced the return of the colorful shirts (as if they ever really went away). Today is  the  day to talk about this. It is Hawaiian Shirt Day, always the third Friday in August, marking the anniversary of when Hawaii added the 50th white star to Old Glory.

Even as union leader John J. Dougherty confronts an extensive federal investigation that surfaced Friday in a spate of raids across Philadelphia and South Jersey, his union is facing an aggressive grand jury inquiry by the state Attorney General's Office, the Inquirer has learned. The state investigation - unrelated to the federal probe - began in February as an inquiry into two violent clashes at a South Philadelphia job site, but state prosecutors have expanded its focus to look more broadly into allegations of a pattern of intimidation by electricians Local 98, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

John J. Dougherty walks a line of contradiction, as ready to mix it up in a street brawl as he is to mingle with the region's political elite. Hailed as "Johnny Doc" in his South Philadelphia neighborhood of Pennsport, Dougherty is a tough-talking union leader who in January traded punches with a nonunion contractor. The same Dougherty sponsored a series of big-name breakfasts at a restaurant on Broad Street - attended by members of the U.S. House and Senate - during the Democratic National Convention.

The FBI raided homes and offices across Philadelphia and South Jersey early Friday as part of a sweeping investigation of a powerful electricians union and its leader, John J. Dougherty. The FBI, acting in concert with the IRS, also searched the City Hall office of Councilman Bobby Henon, a key Dougherty ally and a paid union leader. Federal authorities executed search warrants at more than half a dozen locations, including Dougherty's house in South Philadelphia, his sister's home next door, the Local 98 hall at 17th and Spring Garden Streets, and the Mount Laurel home of union president Brian Burrows.

Imagine that two decades from now, some Broadway producer penning a jukebox musical about the music of Nirvana used Kurt Cobain's songs to depict a happy family life in the Pacific Northwest. That approach would be no less an insult to Nirvana fans than Ring of Fire , William Meade and Richard Maltby's show now playing at People's Light, is to the oeuvre of Johnny Cash. The show doesn't so much sanitize Cash's music as bastardize it. Maltby and Meade's concept employs three couples, one young (Nyssa Duchow and Sam Sherwood)

It makes perfect sense: If a band is going to engage in musical grave robbing, who else should be the front man but the coolest ghoul in rock history? Alice Cooper, 68, is touring as the lead singer of the Hollywood Vampires. Joining him in this extracurricular bit of sonic necrophilia are Aerosmith lead guitarist Joe Perry, 65, and A-list actor and current gossiparazzi obsession Johnny Depp, 53. Also in the band, who are to perform Friday at the Sands Bethlehem Event Center and Sunday at Borgata Hotel, Casino & Spa in Atlantic City, is Matt Sorum, best known as Guns N' Roses' drummer.
