Remember the Choose Your Own Adventure books? They were perfect summer reading. You could opt to attack the ninja on page 4 and skip ahead to page 155 for your blood-soaked demise and the book's ending. Done and done, right? Tonight from 7 to midnight at the Jones Pool (13th Street and Main, sixth floor), cliffhangerfalls.com
premieres its first installment of a similar-minded, viewer-made online soap opera. Cliffhanger Falls provides a few spoof-ready character types, and film majors and other creative types respond by writing scripts, dressing up and shooting episodes that pick up where the previous one left off — hence "cliffhanger." Can you put ninjas in a soap?
