Even in a holiday season, or maybe especially then, you can have too much of a good thing. Five guys named "moe. " proved this Tuesday night to a capacity crowd of folks in their 20s at the Electric Factory. Measured in minutes, the band played 66, rested 41, played 99, rested 2, and played 20 more. And that after opener Antigone Rising filled 50 minutes with hard-rock cliches. No live recording ever really captures the incarnate moe. For $20, you could have bought Tuesday's show, well-rendered on three compact discs, on your way out the door.

The three-minute length of most rock songs isn't just suited to tight radio formats. It fits the quick-paced world of most listeners. To be a jam band in attention-deficit 1997 is about the bravest thing you can do. The Buffalo band moe. seems not to know this. At a sold-out show at the Theatre of Living Arts on Thursday, the quartet unveiled its 20-minute creations with both humor and skill. Moe. doesn't just live in the shadow of the Grateful Dead, it frolics in it. When members of the Deadhead crowd yelled out requests ranging from "Freebird" to "Iron Man," front man/bassist Rob Derhak (who looked as if he had just gotten up from the quad lawn)

"Ooo-woo-woo-woo-woo!" Larry, Moe and Curly, the old-time Pep Boys known as the Three Stooges, will be as ubiquitous as those auto-store magnates next weekend. Six of the comic trio's classic films will be screened at dusk next Friday at Cooper River Park in Pennsauken, courtesy of WYSP-FM. Stooges lookalikes and soundalikes will greet moviegoers. Seating will be available on bleachers or on the grass, and picnicking will be allowed. Information: 215-668-9460. Across the Delaware, the Trevose Hilton in Trevose will be gearing up for the annual Three Stooges Convention.

The concepts are not that sophisticated, that complicated. Dig in on defense. Step out on your man. Fight through screens. Put your body on an opponent's body when the ball goes up. Is Doug Moe speaking in tongues? Is the 76ers' coach telling his players anything that is over their heads? Is there some mystical reason the message gets lost somewhere between the timeout huddles and whatever time remains in the game? Is there some underlying problem that allows the Sixers to self-destruct in the second half, the way they did in last night's 127-119 loss to the Charlotte Hornets?

Of all the juke joints and jam bands in the world . . . I had to find the one that's most diverse in its genre-jumping and most disciplined in its approach to lengthy, atypical jam solos. It's moe., named after a song by jump king Louis Jordan. "We are jam band, hear us roar!" jokes Al Schnier, moe.-man singer and guitarist. "We are definitely part of a community, and like any community we will have our own neck of the woods. " Though they're radically different from most of the jam ilk, Schnier is happy to include touring partners Particle within moe.'s mixed-bag milieu.

A man charged with drug possession before Common Pleas Judge John J. Chiovero made at least two jurors chuckle when he revealed how cops decided to arrest him, rather than others at the scene: By saying, "Eennie, meenie, minie, moe. And I was moe. " Defense lawyer Douglas Stern then urged the jury to "acquit moe" of the crime. They did. A man on trial for robbery got cold feet after his lawyer told him he was "just about dead in the water. " When the defendant left during a recess, he was overheard telling a friend, "You know, I can't swim.

When Tommy Moe, a pistol-packing, white-water-kayaking reformed dope smoker from the wilds of Alaska, crossed the finish line of the Olympic downhill yesterday, the crowd went silent for a moment. It was stunned. Moe had seized the gold medal from a local hero. Norwegian racer Kjetil Aamodt had preceded Moe down the icy course and taken the lead in the race. About 40,000 people were cheering for Aamodt during Moe's run, all but ignoring the American. But when Moe crossed the finish line and his time flashed on the gigantic scoreboard, the cheering stopped.

Last winter was at its brutal worst when Sherry Brohl of Margate stepped outside her front door, her gray-and-white cat, Moe, cradled in her arms. Her feet crunched on the snowy crust, and Moe - frightened by the glare and the unfamiliar noise, twisted in her grasp, then bolted. He ran so fast, Brohl recalled, "that I don't think his feet ever touched the snow. " That was 10 months ago, and Brohl still runs newspaper ads heartbreaking in their detail: "Shy cat, short hair, solid gray, one-half white face, white chest, legs & belly, declawed front paws, pink nose w/ black tip. Answers to 'MOE.

Moe drives to the gym every morning, but Fay always brings an extra set of keys, because once he locked his in the trunk. They prefer gray sweats to Spandex, conversation to headphones. They are so unfashionable that they barely perspire. Yet they inspire. Moe and Fay Lurie are both 93. They still go to the gym almost every day, and are great examples of so many trends in healthy aging. Long established is the benefit of exercise, as well as what some aging experts call "the protective value of marriage.

Sirius, the dog star, the brightest heavenly body in the constellation Canis Major, always selects August to rise and set with the blazing Philadelphia sun. Hence the dog days of summer, and the promise that this season holds to make a famous star out of yet another dog - Moe, the African wild canine at the Philadelphia Zoo. "The African wild dog never gets billed as a star attraction," explained David Wood, the zoo's assistant curator of...

YESTERDAY WAS a dark day for four NFL coaches, at least three anyway, as they got their pink slips. The first Monday after the regular season is when the ax falls on the neck of those whom management perceives as not getting the job done. The Bears' Mark Trestman was let go because his defense was awful and his quarterback was worse. Rex Ryan was let go by the Jets because his quarterback was awful and, well, it was time. And Mike Smith was let go by the Falcons. His quarterback was decent, but his team wasn't.

SECRET CINEMA partners up with International House Philadelphia to present short films of the nyukiest guys in the world, the Three Stooges. And if that's not enough, Stooge scholar Jim Pauley will be on hand to discuss the geography of Stooge films, exploring where they were shot. Surviving records are scarce, but Pauley put the missing pieces together after years of extensive interviewing and studying the whereabouts of Moe, Philly's own Larry, Curly and Shemp. "The boys represent the underdog, and usually succeed when it comes to upending the boss or a member of society," Pauley said.

This time last year, Moe Harkless was busy attending various parties, celebrating his high school graduation, hanging out with friends, playing some basketball at the playgrounds, thinking about going off to college. What a difference a year makes. After being selected by the Sixers Thursday night with the 15th pick, Harkless is now ready to take on a profession, one that will pay him handsomely — and that very well might be the only job he'll ever have to have. He'll have to become a man probably sooner than desired, certainly quicker than his mom envisioned.

Maligned at times for having too many guys who play the same way and get in each other's way, the 76ers on Thursday added a player who initially looks as if he will add to the logjam that is Evan Turner, Andre Iguodala, and Thaddeus Young. However, according to team president Rod Thorn, St. John's Maurice "Moe" Harkless, selected with the 15th overall pick in the NBA draft, will be a unique player who will eventually be a problem for Sixers opponents and not a copy of players they already have.

Sports and superstitions are inextricably linked. After the Flyers won the Eastern Conference, Mike Richards defied tradition and grabbed the Wales Trophy with both hands. The Blackhawks went the other way and stayed as far away from the Campbell Trophy as possible after winning the Western Conference. We've heard stories of athletes putting the same skate or sneaker on first before competing, listening to certain music, or eating a special pregame meal - all to follow certain rituals and appease the sports gods.

He was known from Connecticut to Florida, his son Stuart said. He worked with a whole generation of entertainers, including comics Jackie Mason and Henny Youngman, his son said, and more recently booked impressionist Marilyn Michaels and was negotiating to book comedienne Joy Behar, cohost of ABC's The View, for a local fund-raiser.
