LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W e're back looking at Monster Trucks this week, with a little twist. Tucson Weekly's James DiGiovanna shows us how these testosterone rallies are really not so different from a pleasant evening at the ballet in "Fossil-Fueled Fine Art."

OK, so you like to ride your bike for exercise. But you hate your neighbors, it always rains, and you never have anything to wear. Johnny G can at least solve some of your problems with his exercise fad, Spinning. Boston Phoenix's David Andrew Stoller checks for flats in "Spin City."

Also this week in Arts & Leisure, we hit the court to explore the coming NBA season, the Superbowl's overflowing hype, cruises, and the oh-so-hip musical "Rent."
