Something about Bella Swan brings out the sexy beast in boys - likewise their gallantry. In New Moon, the fever-dream sequel to Twilight (its official title is The Twilight Saga: New Moon), the intense brunette wonders whether a rebound beau's bark is worse (or better) than her first love's bite. At first, Bella (angst princess Kristen Stewart) gets dumped by beloved Edward (passion prince Robert Pattinson), because Vampire Boy can't trust himself around her. Then good chum Jacob (studmuffin Taylor Lautner)

My friend the interior designer was not with me on two recent visits to the New Moon. Had he been, I might be telling you with some authority whether the Fairmount restaurant's new color scheme - screaming yellow and lily-pad green - is trendy or not. The effect is certainly eye-catching and different from the fairly serene look of this place when it was Adrian's, which it was until a couple of months ago. But for the most part, there are more...

Erick Hawkins, whose dance company tonight inaugurates a subscription series of dance and theater sponsored by Movement Theater International, is often referred to as a patriarch of American dance. Hawkins brushes the description aside. "I'm afraid I don't know very much to be a patriarch," he said in an interview in his studio. But the facts speak for themselves. Hawkins has been creating dances for more than 50 years, and he has danced with two of the major forces in 20th- century dance.

"THE TWILIGHT SAGA" has rung up another record, proving once again that nothing rings a cash register like teenage girls. "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" took in more than $30 million from midnight screenings yesterday, according to distributor Summit Entertainment. That surpassed the previous midnight record of $26.3 million set on opening day last November by its predecessor, "The Twilight Saga: New Moon. " The huge start for "Eclipse" puts the latest chapter in the vampire-romance series on track for one of the biggest opening days ever.

Earth may have a shy new neighbor. Astronomers announced late yesterday that they had accidentally found what appears to be a tiny new moon orbiting Jupiter. It would be the first new satellite of Jupiter discovered in 21 years. If confirmed, as scientists at the University of Arizona's Spacewatch program and Harvard University expect, it would be Jupiter's 17th moon. It was not easy to find. The unnamed moon, probably only three miles in diameter, is the smallest object orbiting any of the nine planets in our solar system, Harvard astronomer Brian Marsden said.

A tow truck pushes through knee-deep water on Rio Grande Avenue in Wildwood. Flooding continued yesterday on the Shore as tides stayed high, boosted by a new moon and a storm about 500 miles offshore. In Ocean City, officials said low-lying spots received two more feet of water during yesterday morning's high tide. More flooding is expected today from a storm front approaching from the Carolinas.

"TWILIGHT: NEW Moon" is not a good movie, but who cares. Stephenie Meyer's saga has hacked into the reptilian cortex of the female brain the way "Grand Theft Auto" taps into the male (I'll leave it you to judge which is the superior gender), and all "New Moon" really needs to do is put Kristen Stewart within five feet of Rob Pattinson and his sparkly skin. Mission accomplished. Meyer has created something that no movie may tear asunder, and she's done it with an ingenious remix of the classic romance - desire, yearning, chivalry, yearning, torment, yearning, intimations of the eternal, more yearning, etc. Or, stated more simply: You're a teenage girl in a town where every guy, every poet, jock, vampire, werewolf and nerd is in love with you (and, consequently, at least one chick wants to murder you)

Last season, when I reviewed The Desert Song at the Media Theatre for the Performing Arts, I referred to the libretto of the operetta as something one had to suffer through in order to enjoy Sigmund Romberg's glorious score. I hate to repeat myself, but I can sum up my impression of the theater's production of The New Moon the same way - and this time with even more emphasis on suffering: The story for this show is really painful business. But first, let me say what is fine - and it is really fine - about the show and the production.

Area Muslims are observing the holy month of Ramadan, a time of daytime fasting and prayer. It is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which commemmorates the revelation of the first parts of the Koran to the Prophet Mohammed. Ramadan begins with the first sighting of the moon after the new moon last Monday. The first full day of the observance was Tuesday, according to Waliyyuddin Abdullah, of the Islamic Communications Network of North Philadelphia. "It is a time of fasting - abstaining from food, cigarettes, sex, bad- mouthing anyone, restraining yourself from anything we would consider bad . . . It teaches us to discipline ourselves," Abdullah said.

MAYBE IT'S FITTING that when the sun sets on the day Tom Wolf is sworn in as Pennsylvania's 47th governor, we get a new moon. That's tomorrow. Perhaps he'll howl. Astrologers say a new moon symbolizes new beginnings, a time to lay out intentions for things you'd like to create or develop. So, you know, pretty good timing for the Wolfman's start. And whether or not he believes celestial bodies influence human affairs, ya gotta think the new guv wants any help available, even astrological.

The tale of Little Red Riding Hood - wandering in the forest, communing with a wolf, having her grandmother chomped to bits and hopping into bed with a lech in a woman's nightgown - it's scary stuff. But although Catherine Hardwicke's trippy tweenage bodice ripper borrows much from the venerable fable, Red Riding Hood is hardly scary. Funny? Yes. Sexy? For a minute or two (it's rated PG-13 for chomping gore, and for a few lusty throwdowns in the hay). Ridiculous? Most definitely.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. - The original "Twilight" film had a production budget of $37 million and featured a cast of unknown actors who could wander around the Portland, Ore., set with little fear of being recognized. In contrast, security was so tight on the Vancouver, British Columbia, set of the third film, "The Twilight Saga: Eclipse," that cast members compared it to being in the middle of a Secret Service mission. "I felt like I was walking through a Halloween haunted house," recalled Ashley Greene, who plays vampire Alice Cullen in all three films.

TODAY IS the Ides of March and a new moon. The former, since Shakespeare's "Julius Caesar," carries foreboding. The latter, ritualistically, is cause for renewal. The way things are, I get the foreboding. But the renewal? Not so much. For, politically, even more than usual, the signs lead to lunacy. Take the Massa thing. Are you kidding? This schizoid, just-resigned New York congressman, Eric Massa, married father of two, lived with "bachelor" staffers, groped a male staffer and made "salty" remarks to male employees.

Great word-of-mouth from fans has sustained The Blind Side, which stars Sandra Bullock as a woman whose family adopts homeless teen Michael Oher, now a rookie tackle for the Baltimore Ravens.

Do you want to "hook up"? If you're like lots of American high school and college students, the answer is "yes. " But when you look at their reasons, you'll find an enormous gender divide. Girls have sex to score a boyfriend, and boys simply want to score. And the boys are winning. That explains the overwhelming success of Stephenie Meyer's Twilight books for teenagers as well as the most recent film adaptation, The Twilight Saga: New Moon, which sold a whopping $140 million in tickets during its first weekend in North American theaters.
