Clippers coach Tyronn Lue proving as good as advertised at game of adjustments

When the Clippers introduced Tyronn Lue as their next head coach, Steve Ballmer said he especially was impressed by the coach’s reputation as a thinker and a tinkerer. “Not that I’m an expert in game management and Xs and Os,” Ballmer, the Clippers’ owner, said last October. “But all of our staff says Ty sees the game as good or better as anybody that you’ll ever meet, which I think is awesome. “I tell you,” Ballmer added, “Ty’s my kind of guy. He wants to move, move, move, learn new things, abs...

Clippers, down 2-0 to the Utah Jazz, have issues on both ends

SALT LAKE CITY — The last time the Clippers fell behind 2-0 in a playoff series, back on May 25, they made it a point to express their unwavering confidence. Reggie Jackson wore a T-shirt adorned with a happy face to his virtual postgame news conference and signed off that night by saying: “No worries. Remember, no worries!” Clippers Coach Tyronn Lue also was unequivocally calm, shrugging off the Clippers’ first two losses at Staples Center: “I am not worried about it,” he said. “You gotta win f...

Alexander: Clippers’ task is not impossible, but it’s not easy

There are parallels, and there’s one important difference. The Clippers are down 2-0 in a series, again. They’re playing a team with a dynamic player who demands special attention, again. This time they’re coming home after losing two on the road, but those losses were to the team with the NBA’s best regular-season record. They do have a one-game winning streak at Staples Center, and the odds are it’s going to sound like a library compared to what they’ve faced in Salt Lake City this week, which...

Jazz take exception to Clippers’ path to playoffs

SALT LAKE CITY — Remember how the Clippers backpedaled into the No. 4 playoff seed with regular-season-closing losses to Houston and Oklahoma City, the teams at the bottom of the Western Conference standings? Utah Jazz coach Quin Snyder does. He gave the public a glimpse at the Jazz’s bulletin board on Tuesday morning, when he told reporters: “Obviously, we’re a matchup that the Clippers felt like was an advantageous matchup for them.” At the time, Clippers coach Tyronn Lue said it was a matter ...

With Anthony Davis’ return, Lakers can work out a closing lineup

Whether it’s Thursday, Saturday or maybe even a little longer, the Lakers figure to add a powerful weapon when Anthony Davis wedges back into the lineup in the coming week. It was easy to sense two months’ worth of fatigue and burnout from patchwork lineups and rotations as forward Kyle Kuzma offered some sentiments on Davis’ imminent return: “His ass better play. … Hopefully, he’s ready to go.” The Lakers (35-23) are a team that has been desperately waiting to be whole – not just because Davis ...

How Looney Tunes & Other Classic Cartoons Helped Americans Become Musically Literate

Distance learning experiments on television long predate the medium’s use as a conduit for advertising and mass entertainment. “Before it became known as the ‘idiot box,’” writes Matt Novak at Smithsonian, “television was seen as the best hope for bringing enlightenment to the American people.” The federal government made way for educational programming during TV’s earliest years when the FCC reserved 242 noncommercial channels “to encourage educational programming.” Funding did not mate...

Yikes, What A Time To Be Taking Over The Paris Opera

“There should have been no better time to start than this, the company’s 350th anniversary, which was to have culminated this fall with a splashy new production of Wagner’s epic Ring cycle. Instead, [Alexander] Neef … walked straight into an annus horribilis.” – The New York Times

Creative process: Are you in a period of ‘woodshedding’?

Creative types can feel an overwhelming sense of pressure to be prolific, especially in times like these when, in theory, free time is abundant. Creativity is a resource that takes different forms and like other resources, it has its limits.According to Elizabeth Alexander, poet and president of the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, it's common for artists to have gaps in the chronology of their work. Familial commitments, depression, and health troubles are among the very valid reasons to not be pro...

Exit Lines: “Grand Horizons”

I bet Jane Alexander—former chair of the National Endowment for the Arts, whose much-lauded portrayals in nobility include Eleanor Roosevelt and FDR’s mother, Sara Delano Roosevelt—has spent her whole career yearning to say “fuck” and “pussy” onstage. Now a regal 80, in her first Broadway appearance since 1998, she gets her chance in Grand Horizons, a tidy com-dram enlivened by outbursts of different kinds. Bess Wohl’s play begins with Nancy (Alexander) calmly asking her husband of fifty years, ...

Dizzy Heights #67: Wizards of Oz

The idea for this show came around the same time as the Scotland show. I know that the timing of its release looks gauche, like I’m trying to capitalize on the horrific wildfires that Australia is enduring. I’m not; I’ve had a thing for Australia since I first read “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day.” Then MTV happened, and I wanted to move there. Still do, sometimes. Huge tip of the cap to my friend Cynthia Wang, who’s lived in Oz for a few years now, and sent me about ...

Ex-Roommate Made Mom Watch Him Stab & Decapitate Her Children to “Punish” Her for Not Having Any Money or Valuables to Steal

Horrific new details of a triple homicide involving a young Arkansas mother and her two children have emerged, including how one of their attackers forced the woman to watch as he slaughtered her children in front of her before stabbing her to death. The disturbing information was revealed in court on Wednesday (Oct. 16) during opening statements in the trial of 26-year-old Michael Ivory Collins for the brutal slayings of 5-year-old A’Laylaih Fisher and 3-year-old Elijah Fisher, and their mother...

Fractal Bits is a drum synth with over 4 billion sounds, for iOS and Android []

Alexander Zolotov, genius creator of SunVox and other tools, strikes again. This time, you get a “fractal” drum synth capable of producing some four billion unique sounds. Each drum sound starts with an 8-character code, from which the synth generates the sound via “fractal algorithms.” It seems we may need to talk to him more about what the heck is going on here, but the results are gorgeous, metallic textures with richly varied possibilities. You just navigate with the sim...

The Awkward Truth Behind Skip Rates

With the ubiquity of music access and a lack of any need for patience, the term "skip-rate" has crept into the modern music industry lexicon, and some new data behind why and when consumers are skipping songs (and thereby not generating revenue for the artist) has many in the industry concerned. _______________________ Guest post by James Shotwell of Haulix Think you have a hit song on your new album?

Chicago Symphony Musicians Strike Continues Into Second Week

There are no further meetings between the sides scheduled at this time. CSO President Jeff Alexander said that after no progress was made after lengthy sessions on Friday and Saturday, both sides agreed it would be “good to take a pause” in negotiations. On a small note of optimism, Alexander said that “there is room for movement” on the salary element of the contract. The CSOA is currently offering a 5% increase over a three-year contract while the union seeks a 12% increase over the same peri...

Skip Rates: Why The First 30 Seconds Matter More Than Ever

With the album on the wane and attention spans shorter than ever, the first 30 seconds of of a song matter more than.  Not only do they need to capture the listener's attention, but in streaming, they determine if the songwriter is going to get paid at all.  Skip rates can make or break a song, a record or even an artist's career. On a practical level, royalties don't kick in until at least 30 seconds of a song have played. But in an era where data is driving A&R and marketing decisions ...
