Several weeks after advance copies of Elliott Smith's XO were mailed to critics and radio programmers, the singer-songwriter was seized with the inspiration for a new song. He knew it fit into XO, but where? Slowly it dawned on him, simultaneously horrifying and exhilarating: The only way to go was to overhaul the way his collection of songs unfolded. "It was a good opportunity to shuffle things," recalls the 29-year-old Smith, whose acoustic "Miss Misery," from the Good Will Hunting sound track, was nominated for an Oscar this year.

Choose one. Mathematics is: (a) Colorless, a black and white soup of numbers. (b) Cold, with below-zero emotional components. (c) Humdrum squared. (d) Mystical. Vibrant. The essence of life. If you selected a, b or c, you might consider surgery on your left brain. Less drastic would be a trip to the Stedman Gallery at Rutgers University in Camden. There, 31 math artists have assembled 71 artworks designed to stimulate and amaze math-jaded individuals alongside intellectuals.

Pro-spinach, yes. Pro-choice, apparently not. Queens artist Bobby London, who draws the daily "Popeye" comic strip, says he was told last Friday by King Features, which syndicates the comic, that he is being fired for submitting a sequence in which Olive Oyl asserts her right to choose. A spokeswoman said King Features has no comment on whether London is being dismissed. King sent a letter Monday to newspapers that carry "Popeye" - less than two dozen - withdrawing that sequence and calling it "inappropriate for the family-oriented 'Popeye' strip.

In the stupid computer game to which I devote myself as the world hurls itself at war's impersonal fires and bright-faced youths in fatigues show their lucky charms, sometimes the cards deal in ways that make winning hard. More often, I can't prevail because I've failed in previous moves to make the most of a chain of choices, a question of skill, not chance. I tell myself the play teaches me something since I'm getting better at winning, and often I think not just about the sequence of moves, sequence of numbers; I think about plenty and lack the will to stop; I think of the last candlelight vigil, faces bent above the flames, the several marches, the signs, all the possible moves people like me have made, and hunt for fives or sevens - whatever I need.

NEWARK, N.J. - Devils coach Jacques Lemaire didn't bring it up until he was asked by a reporter. He wasn't complaining, not exactly. He was merely telling a reporter what he believed he saw - that is, that the Flyers had too many men on the ice during the sequence when Mike Richards scored their second goal in their 2-1 victory over New Jersey. "It was too many men at a certain time," Lemaire said. "It was up to be called. You know, this game goes fast. There's a lot of things going on. Sometimes you're missing it, and nothing you can do. I did miss it myself when it happened.

Monday, the USA Network began weeknight reruns, in sequence, of two campy, clever, syndicated action series: "Hercules: The Legendary Journeys," starring Kevin Sorbo, at 6, followed at 7 by its distaff spinoff show, "Xena, Warrior Princess," starring Lucy Lawless. Not only are they being repeated for the first time since appearing in syndication, but the best part is how they're being repeated: sequentially. It may not seem to be a big deal - for decades, sitcoms and most dramas could be (and were)

Oakland defensive tackle Warren Sapp was fined $75,000 yesterday by the NFL for his confrontation with game officials that led to his ejection last week. Sapp avoided a suspension, however. The NFL said Sapp was punished for "physical and verbal actions toward game officials that drew an unprecedented three unsportsmanlike conduct penalties and ejection from last Sunday's game. " Former Eagles defensive end Derrick Burgess was also fined $25,000 for verbally abusing an official during the same sequence.

Humans have been getting pleasurable hits from chocolate for more than 2,000 years, and now, for the first time, not one but two scientific collaborations have decoded the genetic sequence for the plant that gives rise to the blissful stuff. Why? What could possibly improve chocolate? Plenty, said Mark Guiltinan, a plant molecular biologist at Pennsylvania State University and leader of one of the rival efforts. Chocolate, he said, originates in the poorest countries of the world, mostly from small farmers in the tropics.

Fans describe "City Island" as a combination of "Little Miss Sunshine" and "Moonstruck," which is either good, or a terrifying Frankenstein's monster movie mash-up. Depends on your taste. I would say that if you have a distaste for indie comedies about quirky families that co-star Alan Arkin, think twice. It's true that "City Island," starring Andy Garcia as patriarch of a colorfully dysfunctional blue-collar New York family, does seem to have been assembled from spare parts of other movies.

A Philadelphia police firearms expert testified yesterday that he believed it likely that Mustafa Ali fired the shot that shattered a windshield corner of a Loomis armored van before he then shot and killed two Loomis guards. Officer John Cannon told a Philadelphia jury that two bullet fragments from Ali's 9mm semiautomatic pistol were embedded with microscopic crystalline silica fragments. Cannon testified that those fragments were consistent with glass that would have been pulverized when a bullet struck the van's bulletproof windshield during the Oct. 4, 2007, robbery as the Loomis crew serviced an outdoor ATM of a Northeast Philadelphia bank.

It's hard to imagine Jared Hess, the auteur behind Napoleon Dynamite and Nacho Libre, taking his deadpan nerd fantasies further than Gentlemen Broncos. Where do you go after rocket-propelled deer statuary, cyclops warriors in golf carts, and Mike White with a dubbed Irish accent? A sad-sack portrait of a home-schooled aspiring fantasy scribe (Michael Angarano) whose weekend at a writers' camp turns into a twisted tale of plagiarism and movie adaptation rights, Gentlemen Broncos is less about intellectual property than it is about introverts spreading their wings - or their stag antlers.

In "Live Free or Die Hard," Bruce Willis uses a car to crush a bad guy against a dumpster and send another flying through the air to splat against a wall. "Did you see that?" asked a terrified passenger. "Of course I saw it," he replies, "I DID it. " Take that, computer geeks and video game voyeurs who think that virtual reality is the same as reality. "Live Free or Die Hard" brings Willis back as tenacious police detective John McClane, this time battling a demented systems whiz (Timothy Olyphant)
