    Dallas' Pour le Corps Mines Texas' Experimental Underside, Via Vinyl and Cassette

    Pour le Corps label has been on my radar for a few months now, mainly because of their limited-edition theory and vinyl/cassette format. I appreciate that approach, as someone who often feels beat down by the fleeting nature of mp3s, and misses the tactile experience of listening to music: opening a ... More >>

    2011 NBA FINALS GAME 6 -- Mavericks 105, Heat 95: My Top 10 Observer-ations

    ​10. You knew it was going to be an intense game ... even before the game. During shootaround at American Airlines Arena this afternoon neither Dwyane Wade nor LeBron James would respond to Dirk Nowitzki calling their mocking video "childish" and "ignorant."

Barea entered the game in the second quarter. As Thunder coach Scotty Brooks said afterward, "He's a handful." I'm stil ... More >>
