Buzz Bin 

by MICHAEL BOWEN & r & & r & Trivia Geeks for $800 & r & & r & Answer: A Seattle native and UW grad, he'll never forget the seasonal employment practices of H & amp;R Block. Question: Who is "Mr. 74 Straight Games of Jeopardy!" Ken Jennings? His new Trivia Almanac, with daily questions, goes on sale this week. Best question from Jan. 10: What's the word for the small plastic tag at the end of a shoelace? (Answer below.)





Not Wearing Versace


So the writers strike has reduced Sunday night's Golden Globes to a press conference. Starlets will learn their fates while still at home in their jammies. But there would be no chance anyway to impress Oscar voters with Beverly Hills behavior that's gracious, clever or at least halfway sober: Oscar ballots are due back on Saturday. (You do have the TiVo set for Tuesday, Jan. 22, at 5:30 am, right?)





Out, Giant Spot


Opera needs a big screen. In Verdi's opera, when Lady Macbeth goes insane, it's scarier if she's 15 feet tall. So, go to NorthTown Mall this Saturday at 10:30 am and watch the live broadcast from New York's Met. Visit www.metoperafamily.org. When the witches do their wicked Sabbath dance, you can throw popcorn at the screen.





Fox Noise


So you've been stuck in an ice cave for months, and you didn't read every word of our renovating-the-Fox coverage. (And you feel so guilty.) One more chance: either on Thursday, Jan. 17, at 7 pm or on Sunday, Jan. 20, at noon, tune in KSPS. They'll take you through the restoration years. At one time in this country, apparently, art deco was really big.





Shoelace Tip


An aglet.





Emotionally Crippled


Ever felt stifled by small-town mentalities? The Lake City Playhouse production of The Cripple of Inishmaan (Jan. 11-26), set in Ireland in 1934, just might remind you of the urge to break out and make it big. Director Daniel Haley calls it "an illuminatingly dark comedy about a close-knit community much like our own. Martin McDonagh's quick wit keeps it light while he examines the characters' struggles to live extraordinary lives in their monotonously ordinary island setting." Visit www.lakecityplayhouse.org or call (208) 667-1323.

    The new one is smart and funny and action-packed, and it’s bigger and better and sleeker. And Downey does it again, this time ramping up Stark’s arrogant wisecracking, telling anyone who’ll listen (mostly women) that, via the creation of his powerful Iron Man suit, he’s brought years of uninterrupted peace to the world.
