TicketMaster to offer tickets online By Los Angeles Daily News LOS ANGELES — You want to see the rock act Smashing Pumpkins perform Jan. 7 at the Rose Garden arena in Portland. You call to buy tickets, only to be told by a TicketMaster operator that the gig has been "sold out for weeks." The operator is wrong. As she tells you "sorry, no seats," you log on to the Internet and browse through TicketMas- ter's site on the World Wide Web. You purchase two seats online: Section 102, Row S, Seats 3 and 4. For nearly six months, Ticket- Master Corp. has been quietly using the Internet to sell tickets to concerts and sporting events. Now, the Los Angeles-based company plans to roll the service out nationwide by the end of the year. The company made its initial advance into online sales in May, when it offered tickets to Lollapalooza '96. The traveling music festival proved to be a perfect test arena for online sales, as most of the venues didn't have assigned seating. The process of purchasing tickets online is simple. Go to the TicketMaster Web site, http://www.ticketmaster .com, and search for an event by city, venue or performer. Select the desired number of seats. The consumer can either order the tickets online by giving a credit card number or calling a phone number and giving the card number to an operator. Overnight Developing!

His life's a blur of too much to do and not enough time to do it. If only the father-husband-contractor could clone himself, wouldn't things be better? It's that kind of think- . ing that gives "Multiplicity" its hook: a tale of answered prayers being worse than the problem you began with. Pressed for even a moment's peace, Doug accepts a scientist's offer to have himself cloned. It's all just a joke, Doug tells himself— until he wakes to behold a mirror image. Thing is, that mirror has Doug's memories and a mind all its own. Oh well, at least Doug can now devote long hours to both his wife (Andie MacDowell) and his work. And if he gets stressed again? Jog back to the clinic for another clone. Before "Multiplicity" is through, three clones will ransack Doug's life. Each has its own personality (aggressive, fuss-budget, simpleton), leaving the missus confused about her husband's mood swings. Don't Be a Menace ... If you're of a certain age and temperament, "Don't Be A Menace to South Central While Drinking Your Juice In the Hood" will seem like the funniest movie in ages. But there are only so many 15- year-old gangsta rap fans, which means this urban angst parody will find only a limited audience. Still, let's give credit where it's due: Parts of this irreverent comedy will have you bouncing in your seat. It's goofy, yes, prone to exaggerations so outrageous you can't helping getting caught up in the joke. Beautiful Girls When it comes to nostalgia, no arena is more fertile than the high school reunion. You know the script: old friends gather to toast the fruits of spent youths that never quite ripened. To the extent that it follows this formula, "Beautiful Girls" might not seem worth the bother. But give director Ted Demme some time and he works bittersweet magic. 2nd Annual • Antique* • Dried Flower*. • CmfU ( Volunteer Program & South St (LJffge Vtetdtian riouse) 10:00-5:00 Saturday Vli00-5:00 Sunday S4UM.

We cannot do this through ill-conceived plans based on over-optimistic economic growth forecasts that would eliminate $600 million in property taxes for education with no replacement funding. That can only lead to more cuts in programs and staff, more closings and consolidations. • Taxes - We must work to ease the state's reliance on property taxes in ways that are responsible to school children and fair to taxpayers.
