Almost Live: Sacramento at Portland

picture 17

Ooh hot damn, 7 pm comes real quick. Got to the arena a bit late and I was forced to slam a bento box from the bento cart. Which is a shame, because those media room pork sandwiches looked real good. 
THE POINT IS, we're here at the Blazers/Kings game, and they're about ready to tip-off. So let's get down to action. Sweet, sweet Western Conference action.

Almost Live: 76ers at Blazers


NOTE: The internet went down in the Rose Garden in the second quarter and stayed down throughout the game. I guess it had opening night jitters.. A smarter blogger would have continued his work offline, then combined the files after he got home. Casey Jarman is not that blogger. To recap: The Blazers made a thrilling, three-pointers-and-hustle-fueled run that saw them up by about 15 poin...   More

The long offseason is over. NBA TV has stopped broadcasting ...   More

Live Review: Prince at Tacoma Dome, Monday, Dec. 19


The Tacoma Dome turns out to be a fine place to see a show.

After years of passing the stadium—which kinda resembles a cold war military installation from the afar—en route to Seattle, I was almost as excited to see the place from the inside as I was to see pop legend Prince. And my curiosity paid off: The interior of the Tacoma Dome looks like something Buckminster Fuller might design ...   More

Video Premiere: AgesandAges, "Souvenir"

picture 5

You can combine all the CGI technology and special effects in the world for some pretty rad-looking explosions, but for truly trippy visuals, nothing beats good old-fashioned ingenuity. Director Hayley Young proves this on AgesandAges' new video for "Souvenir," a topsy-turvy visual affair at least partially filmed in reverse. Lots of people-power here, but not a lot of special effects budget.
