For the millions of teens (and, let's face it, adults too) who follow the Twilight movies, music is a key part of the experience. The soundtrack to New Moon, the second in the series of teen vampire films based on Stephenie Meyer's novels, features a song called "Possibility," in which a delicate voice sets the tone for a story of young love and yearning.
That voice belongs to Swedish singer Lykke Li. But on her latest album, Wounded Rhymes, it doesn't sound quite so delicate.
Pedro Martinez says that while painter Susan Miller-Havens worked on his portrait, she focused on his hands. She saw his long fingers and told him that he "used them to do art with my fingers."
As far as pitchers go, Martinez, in his 18 seasons in the major leagues, made some pretty amazing art with those fingers: The greatest right-handed pitcher of his generation, he won 219 games, had a career ERA of 2.93, struck out 3,154 batters and won the Cy Young Award three times.

Colorado's vehicle title and registration system crashed earlier this week and isn’t expected to be back online until Monday. That means vehicle owners can’t get their titles in person at the DMV today.
The agency says it will start mailing out titles next week when the system is back online. The issue stems from a '80s era computer set up, which has antiquated hardware and software.
“We have to work with what we have,” said Mark Couch, spokesperson for the Colorado Department of Revenue. “And keep making repairs and make sure that it stays up more than it is down.”
Lanford Wilson, the Pulitzer Prize-winning American playwright whose work made waves both on and off-Broadway, passed away yesterday at age 73.
Wilson's work was always personal, whether he was writing about characters from his native Missouri or the prostitutes and junkies in the greasy spoon across the street from his New York apartment. In 1965, that coffee shop became the setting for his first major success.
