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

Almost Live: Sacramento at Portland

News
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.FIRST QUARTER11:23Marcus Camby, my longtime ...   More

The second part will feature Buck Williams talking about rookies and new acquisitions. But for now, settle in and I'll remind you of where the Blazers are this season.The long offseason is over.

Isn't Grimm Kind of Heavy on the Child Abduction?

scoop_grimm_3728

Movies & Television
Despite Monday's exciting Sean Hayes tweet to the contrary, the Oregon Governor's Office of Film & Video insists there's still no deal with NBC to film the full run of Grimm in Portland. In the meantime, I've had a chance to watch the upfront highlight reel of the filmed-in-PDX pilot, and have to ask: Is this show going to cement Portland's reputation as a capital of child abduction?It's not the ...   More

Cut of the Day: John Heart Jackie, "When You Were Mine"

110918_moon_jhj_270

Music
You can't really screw up a Prince cover, as long as you don't mess with the formula. Try to do it as a punk tune or some thrashing electro thing, and the whole thing falls apart. But stick to the core tune—as John Heart Jackie does here—and you're golden.It's because up until around 1996, the guy knew his way around a pop song. He wrote dozens upon dozens, many of them stone-cold classics. He ...   More

Q&A: Rebecca Gates on Music and Money

The former Spinanes frontwoman tells us what she's been up to as of late

Rebecca Gates

Music
Portland singer-songwriter Rebecca Gates will soon release her first solo album in over 10 years (she occasionally talks about that here), but the ex-Spinanes frontwoman would rather talk about surveys than new tunes. One survey, in particular: The Future of Music Coalition, an organization she works for, is attempting an ambitious project to identify US musicians' revenue streams. It may sound a touch ...   More

Photo Review: Glass Candy in Paris

Music
Just after 2 am on Saturday, Glass Candy took to the stage at noted Paris club night Flash Cocotte, to a rabid audience that rivaled the hometown crowds that gather at Rotture whenever the pair plays the Rose City. Opening with "Digital Versicolor," front-woman Ida No was nearly unrecognizable with her new brunette hair-do and heavy '60s-style makeup. Of course, the moment she slipped off her shoes ...   More

Extended Q&A: Stephen Malkmus

stephenmalkmuspress

Music
Stephen Malkmus has done a lot of interviews in his 20-odd years fronting Pavement and the Jicks. So when we talked on the phone in advance of the latter group’s Portland stop—it will be the first time the latest incarnation of the band, which features Jake Morris of the Joggers on drums in addition to longtime Jicks Joanna Bolme and Mike Clark, has played Portland—I wasn’t surprised ...   More
