Be Easy

Only Kelly Dwyer seems to have noticed that Larry David was strangely sitting right behind the Suns bench at Game 6 last night in LA. I can't tell from his expression whether he's rooting for the Suns or the hometown boys. I'd assume he's a Knicks fan, and as such, wouldn't really be down with the Lakers. Anyway, is that his mensch Richard Lewis next to him?

Wow! You know with those two that they're most likely rooting for the Suns, probably because the have some absurd bet with a Laker partisan, just to piss him off. Did anyone notice Donald Sutherland in hat, glasses and bearded inconspicuously sitting next to Jack Nicholson all series?

i think that's actually robert towne, who wrote the genius screenplay for "Chinatown," not donald sutherland.

On Curb Larry makes a number of references to the Lakers. And in the episode when he trips Shaq, it seems like he's a Lakers fan.

thanks, joey. i meant to mention in the post that i have only seen season 1 on dvd, since i'm too broke for cable (even basic cable!), and may have missed something about larry david's hoops allegiances.

Larry David walkin' round with the fake frown, sell em on e-bay.

I really can't picture him rooting for anybody else but Dave DeBusschere.

That's actually Phil Jackson's weed carrier/Foxsports.com grumpy columnist Charley Rosen whose been sitting next to Jack Nicholson.

If I remember correctly (and I often don't), in the Curb episode "Shaq," Larry says that he's still a Knick fan.

I don't even need an excuse, but guess what I'll be watching this weekend?

Does anyone else remember someone getting a murder charge dismissed because they were filmed on an episode of Curb at Dodger Stadium - or am I making something up?

According to wikipedia: "In 2003, Juan Catalan, a resident of Los Angeles, was cleared of premeditated murder charges against a material witness (a crime eligible for capital punishment) after cut-out footage shot for the “Carpool Lane” episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm showed him and his daughter attending the Dodgers vs. Atlanta Braves baseball event some 20 miles from the scene."

This was also the plot of a crappy CBS crime show I watched once only because I was visiting my parents.

In the Shaq episode, LD mentions that he is a Knicks fan and he cheers for whoever the Lakers are playing against.

That is why everyone thought he tripped Shaq on purpose in that episode.

Lou Adler is the guy that sits next to Jack.

he is somebody.

i'm glad someone else knew that was lou adler, even if calling him "somebody" is a stretch. my question: how long have they had those seats together?

a loooooooong time. he is somebody though. my opinion. i'm anonymous.

Who's the Asian woman (I'd want to say Japanese, but I only scored 80% on alllooksame.com) that sits in the same row as Jack and Lou Adler?

And did anyone see that Clippers documentary on ESPN (ESPN's The Season?) a couple of years ago that had a story about that crazy NBA fan who is mostly at Lakers games, wears all sorts of crazy leather and feather outfits, and cowboy hats? I met him once at a Rockets game (Shaq-Yao 3?).

okay, i stand absolutely totally corrected. i thought that the sum total of his major accomplishments were:

1. producing monterey pop
2. directing up in smoke
3. directed the fabulous stains
4. those lakers seats

which would've been funny, to say the least.

upon some cursory internet research i find that he is a music industry legend, responsible for such periodically fine labels as colpix, dunhill, and ode (that was to salvage my credibility). this would be totally embarassing if not for the fact that there's absolutely no reason i shouldn't have known this already. it's like i already did, in fact.

He wrote Give me a ticket for an airplane. And he produced SAM COOKE and the Mamas and the Poppas. He wrote California dreamin.

That is not an Asian woman. it is penny marshall.

he also gave a dying kid and his mom a house in Malibu... to die in.

That last bit was bleek and I can't erase it. I just meant that he gave somone a house. Nice thing to do...

but i have a question: how much are courtside seats at laker games?

 
At 5/05/2006 8:21 PM, Blogger mutoni said...

courtside costs around $2200+, according to Jack. He even claims to pay full price for them.

I heard they were reselling for $11,000 in 2004, but I can't remember that well.

If you watch this video of the pregame of game 6 they interview Larry David and he complains about the noncall on Kobe's elbow to Raja's jaw before the clothesline. Apparently Larry and Lewis are Suns fans. Fine by me.

Though I haven't done the same research, I can vouch for Adler's somebody-ness -- to me, at least. If it weren't for ABC/Dunhill records, my life would have been a lot different. Not necessarily "better," but definitely "different."

i think you're right that it is adler, but the most recent sports illustrated says it's robert towne in a caption. bad journalism.

 
At 5/06/2006 12:15 PM, Blogger T. said...

no no, I know Penny Marshall (and Dyan Cannon) - there's definitely an Asian woman who sits just on the other side of Jack.

It's definitely Lou Adler, and he's definitely somebody. The difficulty is knowing whether that contracted verb should be is or was.

 
At 5/07/2006 8:02 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

Fuck. I'll tell you all something. The "contracted" verb is to be. But it's conjugation is was. Gad Damn it. It's was because... the Lakers are done. Not jus in this season. I fear. They are DONE. Jesus. Christ. DONE.

I am the same man that said "that man is Lou Adler." And now I am the man to say that that man was somebody. Because the last thing he had... the last thing we all had... has just been sheelaqued. Rim-rodded. Kwame fucked us. Kobe fucked us. Guys, it is the apocalypse. The Angels. Sox. Sox. and now CLIPS. bless' em!... Jesus Christ... I feel cold... so cold. Lakers... please... dont... let... me die... Kobe please don't turn into AI. Great as he is. He never fucking won. Great as he is... he sucks. You suck. You'll never win. You are an ASSHOLE. you MADE your team suck. Fuck you.


Lou Adler... I think... because of Kobe... WAS! He most certainly WAS!
