Will his thrilling performances prove futile? Credit Maddie Meyer/Getty Images Supported by ByScott Cacciola June 5, 2018 OAKLAND, Calif. — It’s like watching Itzhak Perlman play with a high school ensemble — that forgot its sheet music. Or listening to Pavarotti forced not only to sing but to play the violins, harps and flutes, too. To watch LeBron James score 80 points in the first two games of the N.B.A. finals is to behold one of the greatest basketball players of all time, at the age of 33, in full command of his superpowers in a bid for a fourth championship ring. To watch LeBron James score 80 points in two games and see his team still losing the series to the Golden State Warriors is to behold the tragedy of … [Read more...] about LeBron James: The One-Man Show That Dazzles Even in Defeat

(Want to get California Today by email? Here’s the sign-up .) The San Francisco Chronicle editorial board announced its support this week for the city’s former mayor, Gavin Newsom, for governor. The Los Angeles Times editorial board told readers it favored the former Los Angeles mayor Antonio Villaraigosa. The endorsements came as ballots were being mailed for the June primary. Perhaps it’s not surprising that hometown papers endorsed their former mayors. But how significant will the North-South dynamic and the rivalry between San Francisco and Los Angeles be in the governor’s race? We spoke to Garry South, a Democratic political consultant who over the past two decades has served as an adviser to both candidates. His … [Read more...] about California Today: In Governor’s Race, Echoes of North vs. South

Talk about a yin-and-yang night. Or yin-and-yuck might be better. In one corner of Minneapolis last Wednesday, we had young Los Angeles hip-hop crew the Odd Future at First Avenue, the most notorious group in pop music right now, and about as machismo and cavemanny as any group since 2 Live Crew. Across the river at the Turf Club in St. Paul, there was another L.A.-based act, the Dum Dum Girls, a band of four women playing smart, guitar-driven pop-punk who (unlike Odd Future) didn't call audience members bitches between every song or make fun of my mom. Here's a sampling of some of the between-song banter from Odd Future, led by rapper and producer Tyler, the Creator (who proved a dudly personality on stage): 1) "My cock hurts." 2) "Who wants some water? Then throw that pussy on stage." 3) "I won't smoke any of that shit weed. But I'll smoke your bitch, though." 4) To a specific audience member: "I hate this nigga right here. What's your name? I fucking hate you, Melvin." 5) To the … [Read more...] about The Crawl: Dum Dum Girls vs. dumb, dumb boys
