Suzie Harrison Even without the presence of DJ Gavin Hardkiss, Mosun's popularity is obvious as crowds of club-goers spill out onto the street on weekend nights. The venue features Japanese cuisine, music in the restaurant after 9 p.m. and Club M. The upstairs nightclub draws people in to see DJs from Orange County and around the nation spinning trance, progressive house, hip-hop and more. The lines start forming around 10 p.m. and the place keeps jumping until closing.

In the 1890s, the Riverside and Santa Ana people assembled for the summer, so Saturday nights required something special. They built a floor with a tent over it and were ready for dances. Music, as a rule, was the big factor. There was one musician in the village -- a violinist named Hubbard Golf. He was able to play "Turkey In The Straw," "Hot Time In The Old Town," "Good Night Ladies" and other popular songs on his self-made violin. In the early 1900s, a little art gallery was built that began being used for occasions such as weddings, church services, art displays and funerals.

Evan Marmol "Monster" succeeds at rattling and shocking as a consummate masterpiece of monstrous proportions. Belying the title, there are no monsters, ghouls or ghosts -- just degenerates, prostitutes, murders, betrayal and the agony of destitution mingled with desperation. This film is based on a real story and like a tragic accident, you reflexively find yourself turning away, but morbid curiosity pulls you back. Aileen Wuornos is a weathered prostitute with her youthful aspirations and innocence briefly served up to contrast her transformation.

Watching the Glendale Centre Theatre's production of "Dames At Sea" is like spending a mere $18 for a ticket to one of the hottest shows on Broadway -- and getting a front row seat. It's bright. It's tight. It's solid. It's fast paced. It's totally professional. It's got class. "Dames At Sea" is part spoof, part tribute to those great MGM musicals of the past, where the sailors (whether Dick Powell, Fred Astaire, Buddy Ebsen, Gene Kelly or Frank Sinatra)

EYE ON ARTS AND ENTERTAINMENT This weekend is another endurance weekend for art and entertainment happenings in Laguna -- if it were a sport, I think it could be compared to the Ironman triathlon except it doesn't require any training or grueling bike sprints. Those can be done on the side at your leisure. However, the facts are simple that you'll feel a bit regretful if you don't go to the Festival of Arts on Saturday and enjoy Asian Arts Day then spend Saturday night at the Diane DeBilzan gallery, she will be hosting an artist reception for William DeBilzan, Louis Longi and John Geldersman, celebrating their new work.

CHASING DOWN THE MUSE Animas: the soul, the true inner self that reflects archetypal ideals in psychology. It is also the bay of the same name in Baja California. On a post-holiday camping trip to Animas Bay, my own inner and outer selves embraced in joy. Egrets -- they stand among the mangroves like white flowers and then in an instant begin to dance. The dance is a staccato thing -- small bursts as if to dazzle their prey into submission. That was yesterday, in the sunlight.
