Why You Should See Lion King At The Pantages Theater

Lion King Tickets

The Lion King

Lion King one of the biggest musicals of all time has now returned to the Los Angeles Pantages Theater till Jan 12th, 2014. The adaption of the movie you grew up with now comes to life with all the laughter, emotion, suspense and majesty of the Lion King.

Did you know that the Lion King was originally going to be called “King of the Jungle”? Once the film was completed the makers realized that Lions don’t actually live in the Jungle and decided to change the name to “The Lion King”.

Did you know that over 120 puppets are used in the musical, dowel rod puppets as well as the rich tradition of shadow puppets. The skeptical of the puppetry will truly amaze both the old and young at heart from the 26 foot high flying giraffes all the way down to the 5inch trick mouse no detail in these puppets have been left out.

This once in a lifetime musical is like none other. The animals portrayed in the Lion King Musical are actually actors in costumes using extra tools enabling their costumes to move and come to life. The actors playing the giraffes are on giant walking stilts, Mufasa and Scar’s actors use mechanical headpieces so that they may be raised and lowered which gives the audience the illusion of a cats actually lunging at each other. Timon and Pumbaa are life sized puppets that the actors fit into and Taymor has been described as one of the hardest costumes to master do to the puppets head putting such a strain on the arms, neck and back of the actor.

The amazing visuals are what truly makes the Lion King a show that you and your children will remember for ever. One of, if not the most breathtaking spectacle of animals who have been brought to life by an enormous company of national and international performers. The detailed costumes, carved masks and intricate makeup will transform the entire audience to the beautiful vistas of the African Savanna.

Kobe will return to Lakers for Christmas Day

Kobe Bryant Returns

Kobe Returns

Kobe Bryant made his return to practice Saturday, ramping up expectations for his eventual return to the court and to potential salvation for the Lakers. Friday night, while the Lakers were losing to the Memphis Grizzlies, Kobe tweeted that if Friday night’s game was a playoff game he’d be playing. Six months removed from the Achilles injury he suffered versus the Golden State Warriors the Lakers are struggling to keep afloat and badly need their superstar. The worst thing Bryant can do is rush back from injury so he’ll likely work up his conditioning over the next few weeks. According to Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak Bryant will definitely not return in the next two weeks, pushing the timeline to the first week of December at the earliest. So the big question is when will Kobe Bryant return? And when he does return will the Lakers be in contention?

Some of the speculation around Bryant’s return to game action points to the NBA’s traditional Christmas Day game. This year the Lakers take on Lebron James and the defending NBA Champion Miami Heat. A month ago Bryant changed his twitter picture to an image that alluded to 12/25. Whether he’s pointing to Christmas Day for his return or Kobe is simply looking at Christmas Day to be his coming out party the timing of Christmas would force the Lakers to play an additional month without their star. Los Angeles is currently 4-7 and fourth to last in the Western Conference, ahead of just New Orleans, Sacramento and Utah. The Lakers have lost four of their last five games including double digit losses to New Orleans, Minnesota and Denver. Friday night’s loss was a perfect example of where the Lakers miss Bryant. They were facing a 3-6 Memphis team that has struggled all season. The Lakers held a three-point lead going into the fourth quarter only to see Zach Randolph score fourteen in the fourth to put the game away. It’s the type of game that Kobe simply wouldn’t have allowed Memphis to win. In the Western Conference you have to defend your home court and Los Angeles is just 3-3 at STAPLES Center on the season. The Lakers have three games remaining on their current home stand, Detroit, Golden State and Sacramento. The Pistons, who the Lakers play Sunday night, are wrapping up an extended road trip and are ripe for a defeat after beating Sacramento on Friday night. While Golden State is an elite team, the Sacramento Kings are sitting at 2-7 and look completely discombobulated on offense. If Los Angeles can take two of the final three they’ll have some momentum as they leave STAPLES Center.

Whether the Lakers are in contention when Bryant returns is contingent on when he returns. After they wrap up the current home stand the Lakers head east for games at Washington, Brooklyn and Detroit. The Wizards are young and have trouble finishing games, like versus Cleveland on Saturday night. Detroit is a talented bunch but is still getting their rotation and interior combo of Andre Drummond and Greg Monroe to play consistent together. Brooklyn is loaded with veteran talent but has struggled this season and may be without Deron Williams for an extended stretch. After a home game versus Portland the Lakers play at Sacramento followed by home games versus Toronto and Phoenix. This stretch of games encompasses the next three weeks and as far as the Western Conference is concerned is a relatively manageable stretch. If Los Angeles can go 5-5 over these next ten games they could potentially target Friday, December 13th versus the Oklahoma City Thunder for Bryant’s return following over three weeks of practice. If Bryant can give Los Angeles and immediate lift they just may claw back into contention.

If I was a betting man I would be the farm that come hell or high water Kobe Bryant will return to the Lakers to play on Christmas Day if not before! Lakers Tickets are available for Christmas and all other home games at the LA Staples Center. By:Chris Michaels

Lakers defeat Clippers in 2013 Home Opener

Battle For LA Game

Battle For LA


The Clippers coronation as Los Angeles’s dominant professional basketball may not be complete just yet. In a dramatic fourth quarter that saw the Lakers play five reserves and outscore the Clippers 41-24, the Lakers pulled away for an impressive 116-103 victory in the season opener for both clubs. Led by free agency signee Xavier Henry the Lakers bench scored seventy-six points, the most points scored by a group of Lakers reserves since 1988. It was a career high in points scored for Henry, a third year player out of the University of Kansas who was released by the New Orleans Hornet and signed by the Lakers in September. Jordan Farmar added sixteen off the bench for the Lakers. It was another interesting edition to the Clippers/Lakers rivalry, where one of the league’s greatest franchises suddenly finds itself in the role of underdog. With a trip to Golden State and then a visit by the San Antonio Spurs coming the Lakers may return back to earth quickly, but on opening night their energy and bench play lit up the STAPLES Center.

For fans of the Clippers the opening night loss may be an aberration or a sign that it might take a bit of time for Doc Rivers to implement his system. The Clippers opted for a smaller lineup with Ryan Hollins getting very little playing time (four minutes) and Antawn Jamison and Byron Mullens not seeing the floor. When Rivers chose to rest center DeAndre Jordan the Clippers interior defense was lacking. As expected the Clippers were extremely efficient offensively, as they should be all season. They scored fifty-seven points in the first half, but led by only two points due to the Lakers all-around hustle and ability to get second chance points. One big stat was their 52-40 rebounding advantage, a category the Clippers may struggle with all season if they choose to continue to play a small-ball lineup. The Lakers simply out-sized and out-hustled the Clippers inside, with Jordan Hill and Chris Kaman combining for eleven offensive boards off the bench.

Much of the Clippers struggles can be chalked up to an adjustment to Doc Rivers’ system. For all the criticism that Mike D’Antoni has received the Lakers have had the opportunity to play in his system for nearly a year. Offensively the Clippers will be fine, it’s the defensive adjustments that will take some time. The Clippers had trouble defending the three-point shot last season and that didn’t change last season as the Lakers made fourteen of twenty-nine three pointers. The Lakers had a high number of open looks and knocked them down, running D’Antoni’s offense to perfection. Whether it was the Lakers effective rotation, or the Clippers just not executing the defense properly, the Lakers had too many wide open looks. NBA players will knock down open jump shots. The Clippers defense is clearly a work in progress, they’ll need to shore up how they guard the perimeter. Beyond the defensive concerns Clippers faithful are wondering if Blake Griffin is ready to make the next step in his evolution as a great player. Griffin struggled at the line, 3 for 10, and still lacks fluidity in his jump shot. In the fourth quarter when the Lakers made their run Griffin had zero points and zero rebounds. For the Clippers to leap into NBA title contention they’ll need bigger production from their star power forward.

For the Lakers it was an impressive start. The fact that no one believes they are a legit playoff team can be a motivating factor. They can’t expect many games like the bench had on Tuesday night, but the Lakers do seem to have injected some live into the roster. With Jordan Hill and Chris Kaman they have some nice size to back up Pau Gasol. They’ll struggle against elite backcourts, like the Golden State Warriors, until Kobe gets back. We’ll know a lot more about the Lakers after the play the Warriors and the Spurs, two strong Western Conference contenders.

Clippers Vs Lakers Tickets for their next meeting on Lakers home court Jan 10th 2014 are available now.

The End of Lob City?

LA Clippers Lob City

Lob City


After winning their first Pacific Division title the Los Angeles Clippers flamed out in the first round of the NBA playoffs to the Memphis Grizzlies. After a strong regular season the early playoff exit forced some needed changes. Head Coach Vinny Del Negro is out, replaced by one of the most respected coaches in the NBA, Doc Rivers. The Clippers also re-made an already solid bench, emphasizing character guys with the ability to play multiple positions and hit the three point shot. In a loaded Western Conference the Clippers should be in contention for the top overall record in the west. After consecutive strong regular seasons expectations have risen in Clipper-land, with a deep playoff run expected from the club’s burgeoning fan base.

Here are five things to watch as the Clippers head into the all-important 2013-2014 regular season:
Doc Rivers:

After leading the Celtics to an NBA title and several team playoff runs Doc Rivers is now regarded as one of the elite coaches in the NBA. He’s a well respected game manager who players love to play for. His Celtics teams played hard and played tremendous defense. Basketball is a confidence game and elite NBA head coaches can have a dramatic impact on the fortunes of a franchise. Vinny Del Negro was widely regarded as a great guy but one of the worst in coaches in the league. His late game decisions and rotation choices often left Clippers fans shaking their heads. The presence of Rivers on the bench should pay dividends come playoff time. His reputation for coaching defense should improve an area where the Clippers had some struggles in the past few seasons. Most importantly the presence of Rivers signals to the Lakers and the rest of the Western Conference that the Clippers are locked and loaded and legitimate NBA title contenders.

The End of Lob City: The Clippers open court style and the incredible athletic ability of Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan helped create “Lob City” at STAPLES Center the past couple of years. The Clippers made plenty of Sportscenter highlights but had difficulty adjusting to the half-court nature of playoff basketball. With Rivers the Clippers will now employ the half-court style Rivers employed in Boston, which stresses balancing the floor and player movement. It’s a proven style of play and the Clippers made some wise moves in the offseason to build a bench that will compliment the style. The Clippers may not be as exciting as in years past but the revised style of play should pay dividends come playoff time.

The Revised Bench: The Clippers had a strong bench last season, one of the elite groups in basketball. After starting strong they fizzled towards the end though, and went through bouts of inconsistency. Early signs are positive regarding the Clippers offseason additions. Jamal Crawford, who provided so much instant offense off the bench last season, has returned and should make a run for top sixth man in the NBA once again. Darren Collison had an up and down season last year in Dallas, but is a solid veteran point guard who should prove an excellent backup to Paul. Phoenix Suns import Jared Dudley is a character guy who can hit the tough three point shot while providing solid defense off the bench. If there are any questions regarding the Clippers depth it’s related to their interior backups. Lou Amundson, Ryan Hollins and Byron Mullens each have their own strengths, but may have their hands full with some of the deeper front courts in the Western Conference.

Blake Griffin Time? Due to his remarkable athletic ability Blake Griffin has become one of the most popular players in the NBA, a human highlight film that rivals past greats like Dominique Williams. With the Clippers as serious title contenders it may be time for Griffin to put it all together and become one of the most dependable post scorers in the league. The Clippers more conservative style may eliminate some of the open court opportunities that Griffin likes to cash in on. The key for Griffin is to prove his ability to capitalize in the half court game. If the Clippers star can elevate his game to superstar levels the Clippers just may have the classic “two superstars” needed to take home an NBA crown.
The Health of Chris Paul: The Clippers have the best pure point guard in the NBA. They also have a player who has suffered from knee problems and missed thirty-five games in his two seasons as a Clipper. The Clippers will go as far as Chris Paul can take them. The presence of Darren Collison will give the Clippers a solid player to spell their superstar and keep him fresh for a playoff run. Paul is already hinting to an interest in perhaps a shorter NBA career than many and his chronic knee issues may eventually force a truncated career. He’s in the prime of his career now and the upcoming couple of seasons may represent the zenith of his NBA career. It’s essential for the Clippers to breakthrough and make their deep run this season, with Paul leading the charge.

Prediction: The Clippers win the Pacific Division again and eventually lose to the Heat in the NBA finals.

Who will the Dodgers Face In The Playoffs?

Los Angeles Dodgers

LA Dodgers

The five National League postseason teams are virtually set, with the only question is who represents the NL as the wild card team (as of now Dodgers Tickets for the first round home games start at $60.00 per ticket) and what clubs earn home field advantage in the first round. Two games currently separate the Atlanta Braves, St. Louis Cardinals and Los Angeles Dodgers for top overall record. The Dodgers are two games behind Atlanta but would have to finish a game ahead since the Braves hold the tie-breaker. The Dodgers are a game behind the Cardinals but hold the tie-breaker on St. Louis and only have to pick up a game on St. Louis. If the Dodgers can finish strong and take the top overall record in the National League they’ll face the winner of the NL Wildcard game which will feature the Pittsburgh Pirates versus the Cincinnati Reds. The two teams are currently in a dead heat with identical 89-67 records. Here’s a look at a potential Dodgers matchup versus Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Braves or Cardinals.

Los Angeles Dodgers Vs Cincinnati Reds

Dodgers Vs Reds

Cincinnati Reds : The Dodgers are 3-4 versus Cincinnati this season, including a three game sweep at the hands of the Reds in Cincinnati in early September. The Reds won all three games by one run in a series that was a prelude to a playoff type atmosphere. It marked the beginning of a Dodgers uneven stretch of play after their epic run to take control of the division. In the second game of the series the Dodgers bullpen was unable to hold the lead after a solid start by Zack Greinke, losing in ten innings. In the series finale the Dodgers had yet another solid start by Clayton Kershaw, but couldn’t solve the Reds offensively, eventually losing in the ninth inning. If LA does play Cincinnati they’ll have home field advantage and the luxury of starting both Kershaw and Greinke at Dodgers Stadium. In July the two clubs played a four-game series at Dodgers Stadium with the Dodgers taking three of four behind solid starting pitching. Offensively the Reds feature one of the elite players in baseball in first baseman Joey Votto. The Reds star is an on base machine, but has seen his power and RBI numbers drop this season. His numbers have picked up of late with a solid September, helping thrust the Reds into a hot streak. The big story for Cincinnati of late has been rookie phenom Billy Hamilton. The speedy September call-up holds the minor league record for stolen bases in a season and has helped electrify the Reds as a pinch runner in many late game victories. Hamilton has only batted six times this season but is 12 for 12 in stolen bases, with the majority in late game situations. Hamilton and Votto aside the Reds are a deep and talented bunch, but don’t have the starting pitching the Dodgers feature. If the two clubs do match up the Dodgers should be able to overcome the Reds due to Kershaw and Greinke.

LA Dodgers Vs Pittsburgh Pirates

Dodgers Vs Pirates

Pittsburgh Pirates : The Pirates have finally put together a winning season after twenty years of losing baseball and are poised to at least play in the wildcard game in the National League. The Pirates have ridden a strong starting rotation to become one of the NL’s top clubs. Francisco Liriano, who struggled in recent years with Minnesota, is once again proving to be an left-handed ace with sixteen wins and a dominant 2.88 ERA. Jeff Locke, AJ Burnett, Gerrit Cole and Charlie Morton round out one of the top rotations in all of baseball. The Dodgers haven’t seen the Pirates for a while, with both series between the two teams taking place early in the season. In the first week of the year the Dodgers swept the Pirates behind solid starts from Kershaw and Greinke. Later on in May the Dodgers visited Pittsburgh and lost two of three, with Jeff Locke shutting out the Dodgers in the opening game. Offensively the Pirates are led by star outfielder Andrew McCutchen and the powerful Pedro Alvarez, who has thirty-four home runs on the season. They’re a team built for playoff baseball and would be a strong opponent for the Dodgers. The Dodgers would likely be the favorites though due to their overall pitching depth and increasingly healthy lineup.

LA Dodgers Vs St Louis Cardinals

Dodgers Vs Cardinals

St. Louis Cardinals : The Cardinals are the most likely opening round series for the Dodgers. The Braves are likely to finish ahead of the Dodgers for the best overall record. Atlanta is two game up on the Dodgers as of Sunday and holds the tie breaker over Los Angeles due to the Braves winning the season series between the two clubs. The Dodgers are 4-3 versus the Cardinals this season, including winning three of four in St. Louis in early August. The Cardinals are built much like the Dodgers, with a deep and talented starting pitching staff and a group of timely hitters. Offensively the Cardinals don’t have any dominant power hitters like former star Albert Pujols, but instead boast a balanced lineups of consistent run producers led by second baseman Matt Carpenter, first baseman Allen Craig, outfielder Carlos Beltran and catcher Yadier Molina. The Cardinals offense is third in the NL in runs scored, fourth in batting average and third in on base percentage. Adam Wainwright is the Cardinals ace and leads a solid starting rotation, along with rookie Shelby Miller, and Lance Lynn. Edward Mujica has proven to be a dependable closer, filling in for injured stopper Jason Mott. A prospective Dodgers/Cardinals matchup should come down to the dual at the top of the rotation. Even with Wainwright the Dodgers have an edge with Clayton Kershaw and Zack Greinke. If the Dodgers two aces can establish themselves early the overall depth and superior bullpen of the Dodgers club should prevail.

LA Dodgers Vs Atlanta Braves

Dodgers Vs Braves

Atlanta Braves: The Cardinals are currently a game behind the Braves for best overall record. If either the Cardinals catch and surpass Atlanta the Dodgers will head to Atlanta for the opening round series. The Dodgers struggled versus Atlanta this season, going 2-5, although the majority of the season series was played early in the year prior to the Dodgers amazing streak of winning baseball. The Braves have a solid but not dominant starting rotation, led by Julio Teheran, Mike Minor and Kris Medlen. All three starters are largely consistent but not dominant. Like versus the Cardinals the Dodgers should have an advantage in the starting rotation. Where the Braves are strong and may have an advantage over LA is in the bullpen, with dominant closer Craig Kimbrel. Kimbrel is virtually unhittable with 49 saves this season and a 1.27 ERA. He has 94 strikeouts in just 64 innings pitched. Offensively the Braves have a lineup capable of putting up big run numbers, but also capable of stretches of inconsistency. Although they don’t have a player with 30 or more home runs the Braves lineup goes six or seven deep with solid power, especially with the now healthy Brian McCann, Evan Gattis and Jason Heyward. Like versus St. Louis the Dodgers should have an advantage in their starting rotation. If the Dodgers do face the Braves it will likely be in Atlanta where the key will be a quick start and an opening game victory. Amazingly Clayton Kershaw has not faced the Atlanta Braves in two seasons, a huge potential advantage for the Dodgers ace. The lefty’s last start versus Atlanta was an early season game in 2011 where he pitched 8.2 innings, giving up three earned runs. Zack Greinke faced the Braves once this season, pitching seven shutout innings in a May victory. The combination of the two dominant starters at the top of the rotation should send the Dodgers back to LA in a solid position to take the series.By:Chris Michaels

About Kanye West:
Young, Energetic and a music power house Kanye Omari West is an American hip hop musician, songwriter, record producer, film director, and fashion designer who was born on the 8th of June 1977 in Atlanta Georgia. Kayne West showed close affinity to art at a young age of 5 when he started writing poetry and got involved in the cities hip hop and music scene at an early age. While visiting crude recording studio in Chicago West crossed paths with DJ No I.D. who is considered “The God Father of Chicago Hip Hop” and after seeing West’s commitment and talent he became Wests first mentor at a very young age.
West started his career as a producer and although this process was initiated in the mid-1990’s yet West got his first big break through in year 2000 when he started to produce for artists on Roc-A-Fella records. Despite having a successful stint as a producer West knew that his real aspiration was to be a rapper. Record companies consistently denied him a deal because he lacked the gangsta image. Eventually he signed off with Roc-A-Fella records which led to his first composition “Through the Wire” and his first album “College Dropout” came out in 2003-04. After that west has had a series of successful albums like Late Registration (2005-06), Graduation (2007-08), 808s & Heartbreaks (2008 -09), My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy (2010-12)

West have appeared and performed in a number of concerts on home turf and abroad and a minor peak into West’s concert schedule shows that from October 2013 to December 2013 West will tentatively appear in 27 different concerts in USA and Canada which shows the extent of activity being generated by this super star and truly reflects the zeal and enthusiasm that Kayne West represents.

In his early career West often used pitched-up vocal samples, usually from soul songs in his production, along with his own drums and instruments and although with the passage of time the use of sampling has significantly lessened his productions still continues to showcase distinctive string arrangements. West states that this is due to him listening to different English hip hop groups including Portishead and West for a time was the only modern day pop star who would tour around with a full scale string selection. Additionally west is also a big fan of Indie culture and he frequently uses his website to promote indie rock bands and music by posting videos and mp3’s. West has been an active collaborator with indie artists as well.

All in all West is leaving a legacy and a prominent imprint on the world wide music scene. He throughout his career has been an outspoken person which has gotten him into trouble several times. He once accused George. W. Bush of “Not caring about black people” and his fashion sense has always attracted a lot of media attention and has helped him differentiate from the rest of the industry. West has served as a revolutionist to the music industry and effectively paved the way for artists has no interest to rap about drugs, violence or guns.By:Chris Michaels
