Somebody's going to think that I've got it in for Channel 4 news. I do not. Somebody might suspect that I'm carrying a grudge of some kind against KNBC-TV. I am not. On the contrary, as I have written here before, Channel 4 is usually my local TV news channel of choice. I have nothing against Channels 2, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13 or any other. I'm just in the habit of getting my late-night TV news from Channel 4. If Fritz Coleman tells me it's going to snow 20 inches in Anaheim tomorrow, I believe him.

It's back, and there's still some Shaq. The retired pro basketball great's former home on the Westside has come on the market at $9.495 million. Owned since 2004 by one of Japan's bestselling singer-songwriters, Kyosuke Himuro, the contemporary estate still pays homage to the onetime Laker. Gone are the red flowers in a bed of white forming Ss on either side of the steps to the front door. Redone is the home theater, which now has its walls lined with guitars. Retained is the tennis/basketball court, where “NBA MPV” is painted at one end and a Superman S at the other.

This house has a story line and a cast of musicians. Roll the cameras. Guitarist Daniel Licht, composer for the series “Dexter,” has purchased a home in Topanga for $2.09 million. Built in 1968, the 4,682-square-foot Spanish-style home was in escrow for sale to influential guitarist Jimi Hendrix at the time of his death, according to its architect, Harry Gesner, and published reports. The home was featured two years ago on the reality real estate show “Million Dollar Listing.” Licht plans to build a studio at the home and have it designed by 88-year-old Gesner.
