In Panorama City, quake-jolted ‘eyesore’ rises anew as residential tower

When she first laid eyes on the 13-story Panorama Tower along Van Nuys Boulevard, Panorama City resident Cheryl Compton thought it “looked like a bomb had gone off.” The windows were broken, trash and rubble were strewn nearby and graffiti covered the mid-century style former office building. In the quarter-century since the Panorama Tower was rocked by the 1994 Northridge Earthquake, the building had sat empty, despite scattered proposals — including a short-lived idea to house a police station...

Let’s pick a Left-Handed All-Time Greats XI

Wasim Akram (via YouTube) Here’s a fact for you: most left-handed batsmen are right-handed. Okay, we haven’t actually delved into the data to uncover that, so that may not technically be a fact. We’re pretty sure it’s true though. Batting is a thing you do with both hands. Just because cricket calls one stance ‘left-handed’ and the opposite one ‘right-handed’ doesn’t mean much at all really. No left-hand batsman has scored more Test runs than Alastair Cook. However, if you’...

Gregg Popovich remembers Kobe Bryant ‘like a superhero who was actually human’

LOS ANGELES — For a 12-year span, the Western Conference ran through two roads. Through Los Angeles. Or through San Antonio. In that span from the 1998-99 season to the 2009-10 campaign, the Lakers and Spurs combined to win nine NBA championships. Much of the Spurs’ success was credited to the strategic brilliance of Coach Gregg Popovich. And much the Lakers’ success was credited to the brilliant play of future Hall of Famer Kobe Bryant. Speaking Tuesday night before another tilt at Staples Cent...

Democrat Bloomberg’s LA-launched tour bucks Iowa tradition. Here’s why he’s doing it.

As voters in Iowa were gearing up for Monday’s already-considered-pivotal caucuses, and most of the Democratic candidates stumping across the state, presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg touched down in L.A. But not for long. Bloomberg and his self-funded campaign were gearing up on Monday, Feb. 3, to hit the road for his “Get It Done Express” tour — a 10-day bus ride from Compton to North Carolina. The real desired destination: Victory over President Donald Trump. So far, it seems that that roa...

Stream: Thundercat, ‘Black Qualls’

Funky R&B-soul-jazz disruptor Thundercat (né Stephen Lee Bruner) has unleashed the first single, “Black Qualls,” off his upcoming fourth album, “It Is What It Is,” releasing April 3 via Flying Lotus’ BRAINFEEDER imprint. So what is a quall? In touch with his roots as well as an innovator in pop culture, Thundercat could possibly be punning on a bird of prey from World of Warcraft; Qualls, Oklahoma; an archaic spelling of “equal”; or (also quite likely) the huevo that hangs lower. It’s probably a...
