Almost Live: Spurs at Blazers

timmy

News
Tim Duncan looks sad here because he's not playing tonight. I'm sad about it, too. One of my last chances to see one of the all-time greats and he's not in the building? That's a bit of a bummer. Though, honestly, I think the Spurs have a better chance of beating the Blazers from their bench than with a coupla tuckered-out veterans. [UPDATE: I was really, really wrong about this and clearly know nothing ...   More

How To: Stay Warm And Dry

Coping with Oregon sunshine through trial and error.


Culture Features
It’s possible to cycle across town on the coldest, wettest day Portland has to offer without even the slightest chill.  I suspect it is, anyway. Call me naive, but with an unlimited budget    More

Portland Hip-Hop is Having a Big Month

show_tralbum_art

Music
A handful of items of note from the local hip-hop world, in case you, like me, are bad at Twitter. Seriously, I can't remember a time when this much good stuff was pending or seeing release all at the same time, so I had to give it one big rundown. Lots of free music here, so get your ears and your clicking-finger ready.But first, two items:1. I have very specifically avoided chiming in on the Luck-One/DJ ...   More

Music
Ladies and gents, please say hello to new WW intern Collin Gerber. -Ed.We’ve all heard it: “The Dream of the '90s is alive in Portland!” Whether that claim alludes to real aspects of Portland life (I’ve been hoping to run into a pair of Jnco Jeans since my arrival here) or is delivered with tongue planted in cheek, Portland steady rockers/pop-punks Yo Adrian! keep the vibe of quality '90s punk ...   More

Almost Live: Rockets at Blazers

News
So I'm having a bit of trouble with the picture, which is coming from my phone (I drew it on my way to the game, on the bus...it is horrible). But we're about to tip-off here at the Rose Garden! Panic time!10:27There we go. Ray Felton scores Portland's first basket, and he's the guy who we weren't sure we'd see in uniform tonight. Nice work, Ray Ray. Why do people named Ray get nicknamed Ray Ray? Why ...   More

Jukebox of Guilty Pleasures: Ancient Heat

juke

Music
For some, disco might be a genre counted as a guilty pleasure, but for the band Ancient Heat, it's a springboard. When it comes to disco and electronic-infused groove, the eight-piece certainly has its bases covered. It was super fun watching the group onstage recently as a part of the PDX Pop Now/School of Rock benefit show at the Crystal Ballroom, and the performance made me all the more curious ...   More

Almost Live: Clippers at Blazers

Lob City Comes to Rip City

odenblake

News
The camera flashes to the hall just outside the locker room, as it always does before games, and most of the players glance sideways at the camera for a minute or ignore it all together. Nolan Smith, though, flashes a smile and a big peace sign, like he's a giddy fan who has falsely assumed he's on national television. I like that. Looseness. I know Nolan probably won't see the court much—if at all—tonight, ...   More

Almost Live: Lakers at Blazers (FOR THE ONLY TIME THIS YEAR!)

It's a Live Blog!

kobe, lover

News
Andrew Bynum is good. He's real good. He's big, he's quick (considering the bigness) and he plays aggressive basketball. He's especially good at flattening out Puerto Rican point guards who play with a little too much gusto. So that's my word of the day: Bynum. I'm not sure how the Blazers intend to defend the young man, but neither of the team's aging centers are going to be able to keep up with him ...   More

Almost Live: Nuggets at Blazers (Throwback Edition!)

thomascamby

News
Maybe I should really call this the "Birdman Edition," seeing as how, no matter how minor a role that Denver big man plays with the Nugs, I tend to follow his exploits closely. When I was eating some meatballs over in the media room, a few little kids were chomping down with their mom—guessing she's an NBA mom, but I that's not really my area of expertise—and when the Nuggets ran through the breezeway, ...   More
