Goodbye, 2011

The TV Guide

And … that’s pretty much all, folks. We here on the West Coast are currently counting down the hours left of 2011 while folks on the other side of the planet are already well into 2012. Altho 2011 wasn’t a great year for many folks, it was a pretty good year for me. David and I celebrated our 5 year anniversary with an AMAZING trip to Berlin, Germany, I FINALLY got to meet Britney Spears and I end the year happy & healthy. All in all, what more can you ask for?

My Fave Movies Of 2011

The TV Guide

Yesterday I posted my list of my Fave Albums of 2011 and today I present my list of my Fave Movies of 2011. In all honesty, 2011 was not a great year for film overall. Yes, there were some fun movies out this year … yes, there were a few important films but … for the most part, I was pretty Meh about the entire catalog of films that were released in 2011. But, despite the onslaught of terrible stuff released this year (ugh, Green Lantern) there really were a few really great films. Click below to see the list I complied of my fave films of the year.

Watch: ‘Snow White And The Huntsman’ Releases An International Movie Trailer

Previously Unseen Footage

Last month we got our first look at the first video trailer for next year’s fairytale action film Snow White and the Huntsman and today we get to check out a newly released international trailer that features a lot of new, previously unseen footage.

Ryan Gosling & Eva Mendes Jet Off To NYC To Ring In The New Year

Still Creepin'

Yesterday we saw a few amazing photos of hottie Ryan Gosling lookin’ all sweaty, barefoot and disheveled as he made his way out of a mixed martial arts training class here in SoCal.

As you may know, Ryan and Eva have been creepin’ creepin’ together for the past few months and things appear to be still going very strong. Clearly, Ryan knows who he wants to be kissing at the stroke of midnight tonight. More »

A Resolution For 2012

The TV Guide

So … December 30 … New Year’s Eve Eve … can you believe it? It doesn’t seem like that long ago that we were welcoming in 2011 in the hopes of a fresh and happy new year. I, personally, had a great 2011 … but a great many other people didn’t have the best year ever so … here we are, hopeful again for a better year to come. I’m always hesitant to succumb to making New Year’s Resolutions but, invariably, I almost always do make them. I may not talk about them publicly but within myself, I do make resolutions. I’m not always successful in bringing those resolutions fully to bear but … I try. This year, I’ve come up with a resolution that I’m pretty excited about but I know me and I know that that kind of excitement doesn’t always last. Still … I’m gonna give it a try. More »

Blonde Ambition

Last month we saw grainy video of Jamie Lynn Spears, younger sister of our dear Britney Spears, making her public debut as a Country music singer in Nashville, TN. Footage of JL‘s burgeoning career as a Country artist was aired on Entertainment Tonight this week but, for the most part, Jamie Lynn has kept a tight lid on her new music. BUT, something tells me that that lid will be lifted very soon. To prepare for her reemergence into the limelight, Jamie Lynn has been readying herself for the public eye again … this week, she got her hair did with a set of shiny new extensions.

Last night David and I met up with our dear, dear friends Emma and Josh for a dinner and movie date … which was LONG overdue.

‘GQ’ Magazine Names Jared Leto As The ‘Worst-Dressed Man in the World’

"It's not that Leto ... doesn't try. He tries too damn hard."

Jared Leto, actor and frontman of the band 30 Seconds to Mars, has been given a distinct “honor” by mens’ style magazine GQ. According to the mag, Leto is the Worst-Dressed Man in the World. Now, as much as I love Jared‘s bold style and his unfailing ability to do his own thing … I think I gotta kinda sorta agree with GQ. While I do NOT believe that Leto is THE worst-dressed man in the world, I do think that he sometimes misses the mark stylewise.

Taylor Lautner Did NOT Come Out As Gay On The Cover Of ‘People’ Magazine

Despite the fairly decent Photoshop job, I knew immediately that the cover was a fake. Apparently, I wasn’t the only person sent the fake People cover because it quickly made the round on the Internets … tricking some people, like Russell Simmons, into believing it to be a genuine People cover and a genuine story of Lautner‘s coming out. So, as a point of clarity … it should be made clear that the People magazine cover below is NOT real, nor is the story of Taylor Launter coming out as gay. More »

A ‘Sweet & Tender’ Tribute To The Smiths

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way down South to Anaheim, CA to see a couple of coverbands in concert. Now, I’m not a big fan of coverbands but I’ve been so curious to see The Smiths/Morrissey coverband Sweet & Tender Hooligans live in concert that I couldn’t resist making the trek to see them last night. I’ve been listening to The Smiths almost every single day for the past 6 months so, yeah, I’ve been on a definite kick lately. Hooligans performed last night with Strangelove, a Depeche Mode coverband and I have to tell you … they both put on fantastic shows. I had a blast! I snapped some photos and shot some video to give you a taste of last night’s superfun concert. More »

The TV Guide

Last night my darling Ollie and I attended the first night of Tori Amos‘s 2 night concert stint here in Los Angeles and we had a blast. Tori played the beautiful Orpheum Theatre in downtown LA and she absolutely and unequivocally enchanted the entire sold out room. Ollie hadn’t been to a Tori Amos concert in many, many years so I was really happy to have her as my date. I expected her to be impressed and to love the show … but I didn’t expect her to love it as much as she did. Let’s just say a tear (or 20) was shed ;) All in all, it was a fantastic night. More »
