"When we were kids he could be a real pain in the ass," says Tom Farley Jr., big brother of Chris Farley, the star of Saturday Night Live and Tommy Boy. Over the years Tom came to admire his kid brother and was hit hard by his overdose in 1997. Farley heads up the Chris Farley Foundation, through which he uses his family's brand of humor to help kids fend off peer pressure, drugs and booze—three things that killed Chris. Now Farley has co-written The Last Days of Chris Farley, an excerpt from the upcoming book The Chris Farley Show (Viking). To tell Chris's story, Farley and Tanner Colby sat down with family, friends and co-stars including Chris Rock and David Spade. Throughout Chris's life we all used to get together and tell stories about him," says Farley. "I couldn't imagine doing this biography any other way. Only this time I told people not to hold anything back."

Joe Domanick is very complimen­tary to Los Angeles police chief Bill Bratton in Saving Los Angeles (Febru­ary) but at the expense of trashing a lot of officers past and present. I don't know how we survived as the premier police department in the world for 40 years without outside help. The LAPD did have a lew ofF years after I retired and before Biatton came aboard, but that was because the department became politicized and two chiefs were selected through the political process rather than intensive exams. Bratton told me before he became chief in Los Angeles that his success in New York was due to putting in place I-APD prac­tices whereby uniformed officers could aggressively enforce the law. Naturally, I wish him the best.

l'alton Oswalt's article about dating a stripper (Peace Through Pule Dancing, February) is inappropriate and offen­sive. Women who choose dancing as a career have tough enough lives without being stereotyped. You should have called the article Date a Psxcho. since the girl depicted is obviously elemented and not so obviously a stripper.

If you're wearing a shirt with French cuffs, the setting likely calls for elegant, fairly simple cuff links. But once in a while you get to break out a novelty pair, and these flash card-like enamel squares by Simon Carter are ace. Combinations include doggy and style, melons and jugs, and sixty and nine. Those Brits are so clever.

THESE HAND-POLISHED BLINDE shades ($295, osainternational .com) work just fine for a lazy day by the pool, but they also have the strength and fit for a more active afternoon. A stainless-steel core hugs your face gently but firmly with hinges anchored by Blinde's seven-barrel, six-pin system. The lenses ward off mother nature's attempts to scorch your retinas, while five anti-reflective layers block bounce-back glare and a hydrophobic coating protects the lenses from dust and dirt. Cool.

IF YOU'RE GOING to hang something on your ear all day, know that—like it or not—you're accessorizing. Plantronics' Discovery 925 Bluetooth headset ($150, plantronics .com) eases the sting a bit and won't make you look like the Borg's latest acquisition. Tipping the scales at just eight grams, it's comfortable for long-term use and has a mini­malist design that doesn't scream "tech dork." Also, its charging case gives you an extra five hours of talk time on the go.

FOR THE LIFE of us we can't figure out why most shelves are so goddamn boring. Say good-bye to rectilinearity with the Opus Shelving System ($495, dwr.com), whose odd angles allow you to buck tradi­tion and compartmentalize your reading at the same time. The Opus can be placed on any of its four sides and stacked with other units to create as large a can­vas as you need to express your bibliophilia.

WHEN THE POLISH start drinking, the smart money gets out of the way. Remember, this is a culture that developed round-bottomed shot glasses you can't set down. Belying this hard-drinking image, though, is the country's silky and flavorful U'Luvka vodka ($58). Made from a blend of rye, wheat and barley, with subtle notes of anise and grain, it's that rare vod­ka that is equally appealing in a cocktail or sipped neat at room temperature. Those looking for the authentic experi­ence are directed to the signature ice bucket, which comes with a rackful of un-put-downable shot glasses ($350).

Starting this month, exact reproductions of the Prince Albert ($2,975, newyorkfirst.com) will be available in the United States for the first time. They offer the most fun per square inch of any piece of furniture that isn't a bed.

SAY WHAT YOU will about Apple, but its foray into cell phones has made other companies step up their game. From top: Sony Ericsson's Z555 (sonyericsson.com) is proof that an entry-level phone can be stylish and feature-rich, with its diamond-black shell and gesture controls that let you end calls with a wave of your hand. Motorola's ROKR E8 (motorola.com) transforms its entire face to suit the task at hand, whether you're browsing the web, listening to music or (heaven forbid) making a call. Finally, LG's Voy­ager (for Verizon, lge.com) is gorgeous and versatile, with a force-feedback touch screen outside for making calls and triggering music and a generous qwerty keypad inside for texting.

IF ANY GAME needs to lighten up a little, it's chess. Add some much-needed whimsy to the ancient game of intellectual combat with Umbra's Wobble chess set ($263, umbra.com). Each space on the walnut-and-maple board is a concave indentation, and all the pieces have Weeble-like weighted, curved chrome-plated bottoms. Thus the slightest touch sends them bobbing to and fro, but none will ever leave its proper position. Overall it creates a far more relaxing environment in which to humorlessly bulldoze your competition.

Berlin Mexico's ambassador to Germany made a formal complaint about a hit song featuring the cho­rus "Finger in the butt, Mexico." Ambassador Jorge Castro-Valle Kuehne wrote a letter to EMI, which released the tune by Mickie Krause, whose other hits have included "Go Home, You Old Shit" and "10 Na­ked Hairdressers." "As I'm sure you can understand," wrote Kuehne, "the lyric has aroused great outrage among the members of the Mexican community living in Germany, who have a right to be angry that Mexi­co's name is being used in this kind of disrespectful and disgusting way." Krause's response? "Onstage I also sing the lyric 'Finger in the vagina, Bosnia-Herzegovina,' and nobody has gotten worked up about that."

Washington. D.c. In the wake of a campaign to keep Congress from granting immunity to telecom firms that provided data to the Bush administration without warrants, Democracy for America—the advocacy group started by Howard Dean after his failed bid for the White House—has started a cell phone service called DFA Wireless. It offers an alternative for people who want to stop paying companies that have collaborated with the administration. In addi­tion to supporting a business that pledges not to submit to warrantless wiretapping, customers get 30 free minutes of calls to the White House a month. Ten percent of regular charges are donated to DFA; the wireless provider also sup­ports the Electronic Frontier Foundation, De­mocracy Now, the ACLU and other institutions that fight for phone and Internet privacy.

ver the course of several sea­sons on Sat­urday Night Live and the success of several theatri­cal blockbusters, Chris Far­ley established himself as the new John Belushi, the contemporary king of over­size manic comedians. Like Belushi, Farley's struggles with drugs and alcohol gave him an edge that simmered under the surface of char­acters such as his Chip­pendales Dancer and the van-dwelling Matt Foley, Motivational Speaker. When it came, Farley's death seemed like a sad cliche— however, it was anything but for those closest to him who watched his descent tragically, inexorably unfold. Here, in an excerpt from the forthcoming book The Chris Farley Show (Viking), family and friends, co-stars and colleagues recount the behind-the-scenes mayhem

When Boston won the World Series in 2004 euphoria rained down on Red Sox Nation like manna from heaven. It wasn't hard to predict how fans would react when Theo Epstein and company immediately started making changes. How could they ship out players who had helped the team win its first World Series in 86 years? But the front office stuck to its guns. By the time the Sox entered the 2007 World Series, only seven players remained from the 2004 championship team. We know what happened next. The holdovers played a key role in the most recent World Series win, of course, with David Ortiz and Manny Ramirez making a big impact. But Boston wouldn't have won last year if not for the new guys: Josh Beckett. Mike Lowell. Jonathan Papelbon and Dustin Pedroia. The retooling of the Red Sox underscores the delicate bal­ance every team faces when it wins a title. Standing pat usually sits well with the media and fans, but it doesn't help a team put up more banners. The two years follow­ing the 2005 World Series win for the White Sox show what can happen when a team is complacent. Chicago did make one big move for 2006. trading Aaron Rowand to the Phillies for Jim Thome. But that move merely

Jacoby Ellsbury has forced a change of thinking in Boston: Prospects used to exist in Pawtucket solely as trade bait, but the kids aren't so bad after all. Just how special do the Red Sox think Ellsbury is? Well, at the age of 24 and yet to play a full season in the big leagues, he displaced veteran Coco Crisp in center field during last year's postseason and was the stumbling block for the Red Sox in acquiring Johan Santana in the off-season. The first major league player of Navajo descent, Ellsbury is the prototypical lead-off hitter and has the added attraction of being a Gold Glove-caliber defensive player.

Signing Hernandez was a tribute to Seattle scouting director Bob Engle. Sure, the $710,000 bonus helped, but the Mariners reportedly offered Hernandez less money than

WHY IT COSTS WHAT IT COSTS Always be suspicious when someone tries to sell you something out of a briefcase. A fake may resemble the real thing, but there is a reason fine watches fetch prices to rival the CDP of a small nation. Leaving aside the countless hours of handcraftsmanship, the components' materials make a genuine difference. The best watches are fashioned from rust-resistant metals immune to magnetism and temperature fluctuations.

All shoes are designed around a wooden model of the human foot, called a last, and the shape of the last (there are many versions) affects how a shoe feels on your foot. During the construction process the leather is wrapped tightly around the last, but you should give your foot more room to move: The inside tip of a shoe should leave half an inch of space beyond your toes.

We've always maintained that it is possible—nay, preferable—to have a bar in every room of the house. The bathroom, of course, provides the trickiest challenge. Until our ice maker-medicine cabinet arrives, we'll make do with Woody's citrus shampoo and peppermint conditioner ($30 each, mugonline.com), which come in oversize booze bottles complete with liquor-pourer caps. Delicious.

Like a bicycle, diving fins capture your leg strength and translate it more effectively into thrust. Unlike a bike, fins haven't had gears— until now. The stretchy "power bands" in Sling­shot fins ($220, aqualung.com) gather energy on the power stroke and release it on the upstroke for extra worn. Three stiffness settings (amounung

As we're sure Jesse Ventura would agree (see page 20). Caddyshatk isn't just a film about golf, it's a way of organiz­ing your exis­tence. Whether you're more like Carl Spackler or Ty Webb, you'll walk a little taller when wielding the Caddyshack putter (S250. caddyshackputter .com). It comes with a talking club cover that reminds you to "be the ball." To which we'd like to add, "Na-na-na-na-na."

Excited as we are about the start of baseball season, we can't help but feel daunted by the enormity of keeping track of 2.420 games, and that's not count­ing spring training and the playoffs. The folks at Ambient Devices under­stand. Their Baseball ScoreCast ($125, ambieiiidevices.com) uses radio signals to pull in up-to-the-minute scores and stats on every baseball game, placing the entire season literally at your fingertips.

Vegetables and relationships are best when new. Alcohol and Mamie Van Doren just seem to improve as time passes. So we find it fitting that Ms. Van Doren has released a wine, Mamietage ($130, mamiewine.com). What surprises us? The nude photo adorning one of the bottles (under a peel-away cover-up label) was taken last year, with Mamie in her 70s.

We have this recurring dream— no. not the one about our eighth-grade science teacher wearing nothing but a lab coat. This one is better. In this dream we are on the beach with a good, strong frozen margarita in one hand and a smokin'-hot babe in the other. There was a time when we thought this dream unattain­able. That was before we became friends with Coleman's Re­chargeable Portable Blender (S60, coleman.com), which can power up from a wall jack or your car and will do 20 to 30 pitchers on one charge. Now we just have to figure out how to convince the girlfriend to wear a lab coat on the beach.

As pollsters keep reminding us, George VV. Bush is one of the least-liked presidents in history. Which means January 20, 2009 (his last day in office) will be a day of celebration in many places. To anticipate it properly, pick up a Bush countdown key chain (58, bushtinier.com). It helpfully marks, to the second, how much longer we'll have Dubya to kick around.

Time, as men smarter than us have noted, keeps everything from happening at once. One of those things is music. Music takes time to record, time to listen to and time to remix. To honor this connection and also to, you know, look cool, we present the Tableturns watch by Kliid ($65. fludwatches.com), which reimagines the clock face as a spinning turntable. We'd like to think that if you scratched this thing skillfully enough, you could make fourth-dimensional hip-hop by mashing up yester­day with tomorrow.
