LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

W hen it comes to dire predictions for the turn of the Millennium, the radio gods have already spoken, notes Metro Pulse in "Pop Apocalypse." Prince foretold a Judgment Day complete with a purple sky (natch), Bob Dylan predicted the Y2K dilemma when he sang of "a thousand telephones that don't ring," and Michael Stipe just feels fine.

Enliven your next dinner party with holiday treats concocted by the foodies at the Austin Chronicle. From dishrag turkey and holiday cheese fondue to thumbprint cookies and lemon squares, this guide has got you covered course by course.

It's fun to burn virtual rubber like James Bond in the Aston Martin DB7 featured in "Need For Speed III.," reports Austin Chronicle's Marcel Meyer in "It's All in the Game." But if you've got an extra $27,950 lying around, it might be even more enjoyable to pick up an actual model of the revamped Acura 3.2L, notes Nashville Scene's Marc Stengel in "Sticker Shock."
