Tokyo Nights: Upgrading the classic Honda CB900F

Unless you can identify a motorcycle just by its engine, you’ll have a hard time pinning down the exact year and model of this muscular Honda four. We’ll clue you in: it’s a 1981 CB900F. But it’s wearing parts from so many different donors, it’s hardly recognizable. Calling it a ‘bitsa’ would be highly unfair though. That’s because owner and builder James Berreau has done such a good job of piecing it together, it looks almost stock—like some forgotten naked bruiser of the 90s. James is b...

10 Times Zoe Kravitz and Lisa Bonet Took Twinning to a Whole New Level

In Hulu’s streaming series reboot of High Fidelity, actor and musician Zoe Kravitz stars as record store owner and music nerd Rob, in a gender-flipped revision of John Cusack’s role from the original 2000 film.

Lakers stand pat at trade deadline as NBA rattles and shakes

EL SEGUNDO — An hour before the trade deadline, LeBron James and Anthony Davis were facing the media side-by-side. James was asked how he received news that Andre Iguodala had just been traded to, and agreed to an extension with, the Miami Heat — his former team that now appears to be gearing to make a run at the title. “How do I handle that news?” he said. “I don’t know, I mean, I saw it and was like, ‘OK.’” As the NBA scrambled itself around them on deadline day, the Lakers sat back and watche...

Lakers seek to balance business, emotions as trade deadline approaches

EL SEGUNDO — The NBA’s trade deadline looms Thursday, fewer than two weeks after Kobe Bryant died, along with eight others, in the helicopter crash in Calabasas that left the world, the NBA and, most certainly, the Lakers reeling.

Zoë Kravitz in ‘High Fidelity’: TV Review

For a show built around its central character’s obsession with music, “High Fidelity” makes some pretty generic choices. As Zoë Kravitz’s character Rob reflects on the nature of romance, she plays David Bowie’s “Modern Love”; thinking back upon the defining relationship of her life — now concluded — she hears Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 […]

Zoë Kravitz’s Hulu High Fidelity Series Is So Much More Than a Gender-Flipped Reboot

For all its arcane music-geek delights, High Fidelity isn’t exactly a showcase for complex female characters. Released in 2000, director Stephen Frears’ adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel about a self-absorbed record-store owner (John Cusack’s Rob) who keeps sabotaging his relationships features a roll call of cool Gen X women: Catherine Zeta-Jones, Lili Taylor, Sara Gilbert, Cusack’s sister Joan, Danish actor Iben Hjejle as Rob’s latest girlfriend. They are love interests, exes, helpful f...

The best of Kobe Bryant’s legends and tall tales with the Lakers

Aside from the championships and aside from the statistics, Kobe Bryant had something most NBA players never achieve: mystique. Even as he was one of the biggest sports stars in the world, there were parts of the Black Mamba that seemed unknowable and enigmatic. He inspired legends as the first one to arrive the gym and the last one to leave, and his trash talk (even to his own teammates) was the stuff of myth. Even his helicopter commutes, before becoming a symbol of tragedy, were another locke...
