Just Gettin’ Started

Early on in last night’s Clippers win over the Atlanta Hawks at Staples Center, from our sweet seats in Box B-55 thanks to Susan’s boss (click to doublify):


The last professional basketball game I attended was a Laker game at the Forum, November 5, 1991. Coincidentally they were playing the Clippers. In another far more dramatic coincidence that game also turned out to be the last one Magic Johnson suited up for (but didn’t play). The following day he announced he was HIV positive.

Will Campbell arrived in town via the maternity ward at Good Sam Hospital way back in OneNineSixFour and has never stopped calling Los Angeles home. Presently he lives in Silver Lake with his wife Susan, their cat Rocky, dogs Terra and Hazel, and a red-eared slider turtle named Mater. Blogging since 2001, Will's web endeavors extend back to 1995 with laonstage.com, a comprehensive theater site that was well received but ever-short on capital (or a business model). The pinnacle of his online success (which speaks volumes) arrived in 1997, when much to his surprise, a hobby site he'd built called VisuaL.A. was named "best website" in Los Angeles magazine's annual "Best of L.A." issue. He enjoys experiencing (and writing about) pretty much anything creative, explorational and/or adventurous, loves his ebike, is a better tennis player than he is horr golfer, and a lover of all creatures great and small -- emphasis on "all."
