New News is Good News, particularly if you're trying to wade through today's cultural tides. That's the point of this issue, the Playboy Fall Preview. It will help you deal calmly with the latest rages, big shifts and spare changes. Unless you were lost on the planet Evian for the past year, you know cigars are more than smokin'. This month we add cool to the fire with a premium smoke--the Playboy cigar by Don Diego. Richard Carleton Hacker, a great man for the good life, introduces our cheroot in Gentlemen (and Ladies), You May Smoke. In Suit Yourself Fashion Editor Hollis Wayne showcases lean and elegant menswear. Slim-waisted suits in dusky colors coupled creatively with vibrant shirts will help you fall ahead. As for leaving everybody behind, American carmakers are working on autobahn busters of the future. Cars '97 by master of suspension Ken Gross includes such prototypes as Ford's 435-horsepower Indigo. Finally, the digital versatile disc, or DVD, is coming, and you'll be glad when it arrives. DVD is like the unified field theory of electronics: It works with TVs and computers and is better than laser. The artwork in Digital Rush is by Jim Ludtke, who designed the award-winning CD-ROM The Residents' Bad Day on the Midway.

Chicago-Born Larry and Andy Wachowski make their feature debuts with Bound (Gramercy Pictures), a taut, insidious thriller that they wrote, co-produced and directed. Set in a Chicago high-rise, the movie follows two beautiful lesbians from their brief first encounter to a daring attempt to relieve the Mafia of $2 million in laundered money. Sultry Gina Gershon--who had nowhere to go but up after her stint in last year's Showgirls--plays Corky, a paroled thief who lives next door to Violet (Jennifer Tilly), the bored mistress of a Mafia money man (Joe Pantoliano). After their initial click, the two women hatch a scheme that unfolds with many a slip between the lies and the loot. Sex, viciousness and violence--cutting off a finger is a favored form of punishment--thicken the plot as Bound careens toward a hold-your-breath climax. Getting there turns out to be good, mean fun if you don't mind a little blood. [rating]3 bunnies[/rating]

Off Camera: Michael Rapaport

Michael Rapaport sounds unhappy on the phone from San Francisco, where he is shooting Metro with Eddie Murphy. "I took this job to work with Murphy. I wanted to be him when I was a kid, and personally he's great. But I don't like what I'm doing. The script isn't developed--it's like the walking dead out here." Otherwise, at age 25, Rapaport, a New Yorker to the bone, feels alive and well and upwardly mobile. "I'm still like the kid who looks around and says to himself: 'Oh shit, I'm in the movies!'"

Elmore Leonard, master of the cynical crime novel, has written a love story. Of course, he made it a love story between a good-looking 29-year-old female deputy marshal and a rakish 47-year-old escaped con. Karen Sisco spends most of Out of Sight (Delacorte) hunting down Jack Foley, though when she finds him it is unclear whether she wants to get him in bed or put him back in jail--or both.

I am working on a class project on sex as art. The women I've interviewed have shown incredible interest, and one suggested we paint our bodies different colors, then have sex on a giant sheet of paper to display with the assignment. I thought this was an excellent idea, especially because she's gorgeous. Where can I find paints that dry slowly and that won't irritate tender body parts? We've chosen the colors already: purple and yellow.--M.B., Indianapolis, Indiana

James R. Petersen
Last year while researching what would become the book 365 Ways to Improve Your Sex Life, I went through every sex manual in the Playboy library. I read the collected wisdom of M.D.s, Ph.D.s, RNs, therapists, feminists, fantasists and sexual explorers. I was looking for tricks -- techniques, that would accelerate passion and produce astonishing sex.

On the day of the 1996 Academy Awards ceremony, Nicolas Cage is dressed in a wide-lapelled Hugo Boss tux, walking around his apartment, a penthouse in downtown Los Angeles that could be a set in a "Batman" movie, with burgundy walls, deco furniture and sculptures of comic-book villains. He's pacing, "freaking out," while waiting for his wife, actress Patricia Arquette, to return home.

It was a frigid spring day when the militia-minded Montana Freemen barricaded themselves and began their 81-day standoff with the FBI. The siege outside Jordan, Montana came as no surprise to a group of people who had convened in an old garage in Lithopolis, Ohio shordy before the Montana confrontation reached the point of no return. The garage was 1000 miles away, but the people who gathered there shared many of the beliefs of the Montana Freemen and spoke the same political language.

Uma Gosh!

We have turned away lots of paparazzi photos, but we weren't about to turn down these photos of the exceptional Uma Thurman, taken in exceptional circumstances. Frankly, we are not usually fans of long-range-lens photography and we scrupulously respect privacy when it's private. We just don't think it's fair when someone as gorgeous as Uma frolics nude for a bunch of tourists without sharing with everyone else. With Uma, the conditions were just right--we simply used two hands to steady our shaky loupes. What you see here came about when Uma marched onto a public beach in St. Barts, stripped off her swimsuit and revealed the PG-13 body barely hinted at in our now-favorite movies Dangerous Liaisons, Pulp Fiction and The Truth About Cats and Dogs. In the crowd of sunbathers, two equally lucky photographers recorded the glorious event--as Uma must have guessed they would.

I Was Working at this grease pit on Broadway up near 110th, Leontonio's, basically a take-out joint, four tables, smoke-stained graphics of baseball players on the walls and a skinhead cleanup guy named Curt who had green teeth and once wore a T-shirt for two weeks straight that read Death to Mammals. Business, as you might suspect, was often slow, and it was dead slow in the afternoons after lunch. So whenever a woman, a girl, anything approximately female, came in during those slow times, it verged on a life event for Curt and me, and we would conference and make an evaluation.

Lose the loose-fitting jackets, bag the baggy pants. Elegance is in order for fall. The tailored suits and sports jackets that garnered headlines last year are also this season's buzz thanks to slick variations from top menswear designers. The word is lean. Look for jackets that are slender at the waist, with strong shoulders and armholes cut high to accentuate a slim silhouette. Pants are fitted, too, and colors are rich and dark. Combine a charcoal chalk-striped shirt. Wear a rust windowpane-plaid sports jacket with a black turtleneck sweater. Or match a brown velvet suit with a lime polo shirt. You get the picture.

I'm going to get right down to why I tune in Friends. Actually, "tune in" is a mild way of describing my loyalty to the NBC sitcom. Let me tell you why nothing else in my miserable life matters during that half hour every Thursday night and why nothing--not even a triple homicide going down behind my couch--could tear me away.

Japanese surrealist Shig Ikeda photographed the female body in a most intriguing manner. Acknowledging a host of influences, from Man Ray and Salvador Dalí to Sigmund Freud, Ikeda created his portraits with multiple exposures, one piece at a time. The nude on a table with apple is from a portfolio in the September 1971 Playboy. "I'm fascinated by the human mind," Ikeda said of his sensual photographs, "and its ability to construct scenes only in the imagination."

Jennifer Allan smiles as she unfastens her green-eyed gaze from the menu at one of Chicago's better ristorantes, apparently unaware that the gazes of nearby diners are fastened on her. "What do you think?" she asks. "The ravioli or the fusilli?" Temptation is strong to tell her she would look fabulous eating anything.

Basically, Christopher Columbus didn't have a clue about what he was sailing into when he anchored the Santa María off the island of San Salvador in 1492. Most people think he merely found the New World for Spain. But he also got his first glimpse of cigars. On an island now known as Cuba, the natives were blissfully puffing away on tobacco leaves that had been rolled into tubes. Today those crude stogies have been dramatically refined into premium cigars, and Columbus' discovery has exploded into a worldwide trend. Consumption of premium cigars has increased by more than 40 percent since 1995, and some of the most popular brands are back-ordered by 8 million to 10 million "sticks." The cigar-smoking craze has spawned several slick magazines, such as Cigar Aficionado and Smoke, and cigar dinners, where what's being served takes second place to what's being smoked. Smoking clubs such as Beverly Hills' celebrity hot spot Grand Havana and the new Club Macanudo in

After the most turbulent and chaotic year in its history, the National Football League may wish to reflect on what it's doing. I hesitate to point out the obvious, but the NFL has suddenly become all about teams moving into new stadiums in new cities. Instead of being the Tiffany of sports leagues, the NFL looks like a hangout for wheeler-dealers ready to turn a fast buck.

Sure, you're skeptical of yet another hot new consumer electronics format--especially with those compact-disc-interactive and digital-compact-cassette systems collecting dust. But give us just a minute. Barring eleventh-hour disputes over technical standards and legal issues, the digital versatile disc should be on store shelves this fall--and it is here to stay. In fact, DVD could do to VCRs and VHS tapes what the compact disc did to turntables and vinyl. Just as the audio CD's lures were (and are) its sound quality, portability, track access and durability, DVD offers those same advantages for both audio and video, then goes several steps further. Consider storage: Audio CDs and regular CD-ROMs can hold a maximum of 680 megabytes of data, the equivalent of 485 floppy disks. A single-sided five-inch DVD holds at least 4.7 gigabytes, or some 3400 floppies. In real-world terms, that means a DVD can easily hold a feature-length movie, including multiple soundtracks (in different languages) and a slew of subtitling options. · With DVD, moviemakers can incorporate multiple plot lines and scenes shot from different camera angles. · DVD provides a digital picture more than twice as sharp as videotape, and about 20 percent sharper than high-quality laser discs. · DVDs will play back on your TV set or computer with a DVD-ROM drive. But instead of confining Arnold Schwarzenegger to a postage-stamp window marred by low resolution and jerkiness, this format will have him wreaking havoc smoothly across every inch of your computer monitor, as well as your television screen. What's more, in addition to choosing to fill the screen of a standard 4:3 set, you can view a movie in letterbox format with the touch of a button. And when you eventually buy one of those wide-screen monsters that already account for 40 percent of TV sales in Japan, you can enjoy DVD in the wide screen's 16:9 ratio, too. · Many DVDs will have a control feature that provides parents the option of toning down the sex and violence in movies. Similarly, a studio could give users the option of seeing the director's cut or the theatrical release. · Want state-of-the-art digital sound? Most movies on DVD will be ready for Dolby Digital (also known as AC-3). Dolby Digital is the next step up from Dolby Pro Logic, which is compatible with the new format. Dolby's latest and greatest offering re-creates movie-theater thrills by delivering the sound into six channels of digital audio, plus a low-frequency effects channel for a subwoofer. With this configuration, sounds can shoot across the room diagonally, in addition to left-right and front-back (Pro Logic, by comparison, sends one audio signal to both rear speakers).

Cars '97

Article by hen gross Carmakers love to tempt us with dramatic machines. These could be here by the millennium. Among the Big three automakers, Chrysler leads the design parade, fiercely challenged by Ford. Both offer different visions of tomorrow's automobiles. Ford's styling is angular and crisp, epitomized by its Darth Vaderesque Lincoln Sentinel sedan and the race car-inspired Indigo roadster. Chrysler's stylists see the future in a more fluid fashion. the Chrysler LHX and the Dodge ESX sedans tease the eyes with (concluded on page 136) cars '97 (continued from page 120) rounded forms and expansive, sweeping curves. Regardless of which interpretation prevails, we can expect intriguing new cars over the next decade. And while we won't see that quartet next year, here's what will be hot in 1997.

20 Questions: Janeane Garofalo

Actress and comedian Janeane Garofalo, 32, is fearless when it comes to answering questions. She cannot tell a lie. She is also unself-conscious--starting this interview in her hotel bathroom while brushing her teeth and putting on makeup. Such forthrightness also informs her stand-up act, in which she eschews the setup--and--punch line method for the slice-of-life on wry. Her deadpan veracity also comes through in her role as Paula the talent booker on HBO's "Larry Sanders Show," and in her duties as host of Comedy Central's "Comedy Product." Garofalo, who thinks she will never be more than a cult figure, has also found success in the movies. She was Winona Ryder's friend and roommate in "Reality Bites" and Randy Quaid's acerbic date-from-hell in "Bye Bye Love." Another recent success was as Abby, the talk-show veterinarian with a self-esteem problem, in last spring's hit romantic comedy "The Truth About Cats and Dogs." Next she plays an elephant trainer in "Larger Than Life" with Bill Murray. Contributing Editor David Rensin met with her in Aspen during the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival. Says Rensin of the experience: "I've never met a woman more clear about who she is than Janeane Garofalo. It definitely takes your breath away."

In the Final Scene of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy reminds us that, despite the razzmatazz of Oz, her Kansas community has its pluses. We'd now like to add a plus of our own: Small-town women are lookers. "Every day, beautiful women from tiny townships send us their pictures," says Playboy's Senior Photo Editor Jim Larson. "We finally said, 'Hey, forget the big city--let's honor the hometown girl.'" Winnowing down the list was the first step ("the smaller the town the better"); then Playboy's photo corps hit the road. "But this wasn't like jetting down to Atlanta for a quick shoot," Larson continues. "It was more like getting on one plane, transferring to a smaller one, then taking a three-hour car ride out to a place that's barely on the map." But, Larson reports, the treks were worth the effort. "Not only were the women fresh and down-to-earth, but the folks we met along the way were delightful. They were so flattered that Playboy would make such a long trip just to visit their town." Call it civic pride, call it a knockout pictorial. Either way, Dorothy is right: There's no place like home.

Bang & Olufsen has been performing electromechanical magic since 1925, when Peter Bang and Svend Olufsen invented a gizmo that powered radios with house current instead of batteries. Now the name B&O suggests idea-driven electronics and elegant design. Pencil-thin polished-aluminum speakers reflect rather than overpower a room's furnishings. CD systems that aren't much thicker than a picture can hang on a wall or balance on a stand. Microprocessors and motors open cabinet doors at the wave of a hand and send remote-controllable sound signals room to room. Who says Danes aren't sexy?
