Feast Of Friends

The TV Guide

Yesterday turned out to be a really fun Sunday Funday with the early party of my day spent with my friends at Disneyland and the latter part of my day spent with Darion and his mom Janai, who was passing through LA on her way home to Oregon. As per usual, Disney was fun because I got to spend time with my Sons of Anakin SC peeps in the Happiest Place on EarthTM. Dinner last night was great because any time I get to spend with Janai is truly special so … yeah, Sunday was a good one for the record books. More »

My Night With Tegan & Sara and Amelia

The TV Guide

Last night, I met up with my friend Amelia for a quick drink/catch-up sesh at The Well before we made our way into the Hollywood Palladium to see Tegan and Sara live in concert. I love me some Tegan and Sara so I had been looking forward to the show for some time now. And because I never get to spend as much time as I like with Amelia, I’m so glad that she was free last night to see the show with me. We had the best time ever … probably aided by the fact that the beers we drank were so large ;) More »

Avengers Assemble . . . For The Inaugural Avengers 5K At Disneyland

The TV Guide

So, yeah, I had myself quite a busy past 24 hours … in that time, I made my way down to Anaheim, CA to pick up my race materials for the inaugural Avengers Half Marathon Weekend at Disneyland, I checked into my cheapie hotel, I met up and hung out with my BFFs Darion and Courtney at Disneyland and I ran the inaugural Avengers Super Heroes 5K Race … and it ain’t even noon yet. All of these things were very fun — especially the 5K which was the funnest 5K race I’ve run to date. I have a lot of photos to share, I hope you like :D More »

Movie Review: ‘Interstellar’ In 4DX

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with a great group of friends for an evening showing of the new Christopher Nolan film Interstellar and while I wish I could say that I enjoyed the movie, well, I cannot. The night was really fun nonetheless because I got to see Nicole, Becca and Loy for the first time in forever and I got to spend more quality time with Darion and Omar but … very unfortunately, the movie was a huge fail on absolutely all fronts. Not even the fun 4DX experience was enough to make the movie good because even those effects were lacking. The night as fun but the movie was not. More »

It’s Beginning To Look A Lot Like Xmas

The TV Guide

After a 3 week hiatus (which seemed like a 3 year exile), I was able to get back to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure to spend the day with my friends in our Sons of Anakin social club. The parks were really busy because ABC was filming holiday specials in both parks so the craziness that usually comes from Sundays was heightened by the filming crews all over the place … but lots of fun was had, nonetheless.

Much Ado About Baby

The TV Guide

Last night a group of family and friends got together to celebrate the forthcoming arrival of my dear friends Emma and Josh’s baby BOY and an amazing time was had by all. I attended the Baby Fiesta Shower for Baby Boy Zar with my friends Tamar and Caleb and honestly couldn’t stop smiling from all of the love assembled in the room. It was the first time I saw some of Emma and Josh’s family members since their wedding a couple of years ago so it was very nice to catch up with one another. At the center of the festivities was the very pregs Emma glowing like beacon and Josh smiling from ear to ear. It was only the best baby shower ever. More »

A Night Out With President Clinton

The TV Guide

Last night, my good friend Edward invited Darion and me to an event hosted by The Clinton Foundation 20/30 and President Clinton himself on the lot at Paramount Studios. When an offer is extended to be in the presence of one of the greatest presidents of our time, you don’t say no. Fortunately, our other good friend Courtney is a member of 20/30 so she was in attendance last night as well and we all got to hang out together at the event. While it was short, it was very sweet getting to hear President Clinton speak in person. More »

Wednesday With Friends

The TV Guide

My Wednesday was crazy hectic (and today is even worse) but I did manage to get some work done, do some important networking and hang out with friends. I spent part of my morning yesterday at the Globe Theater at Universal Studios to attend the keynote Q&A with Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross at the Film + TV Music Conference hosted by The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard magazine (I’ll have a post on that event shortly). After the keynote, I raced home to finish up my days work and then last night, I made my way out to visit Emma and Josh in the NEW HOME they *just* moved into! In the blink of an eye, my friend moved from Manhattan Beach to the Valley which means they now live much closer to me … which is the best news ever! More »

Imagine

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last day in NYC for a while so I really wanted to make the most of it. Because I was still hella sore from running the New York City Marathon the day before, I knew that staying active and walking as much as possible yesterday would help speed up my recovery. Sarah, Mark and I hit the city in the late morning to visit Central Park, grab lunch at one my fave NYC eaties and meet up with our dear friend Oriana before we had to make our way to our respective homes. The weather was glorious, NYC was beautiful and an amazing time was had by all. More »

Going Out On A High Note

The TV Guide

And so … my 10th and very likely final marathon is in the books. Yesterday, I ran the NYC Marathon and had a mostly amazing, oftentimes freezing, mostly windy time running the streets of NYC. My day started at 4:20 AM when I had to get ready and make my way to the bus that would take me to Staten Island where I would wait in the bitter, windy cold for 4 hours before I got to start the race. Once I was off and running, I really took my time to savor the experience. I saw beloved friends along the route, met PITNB readers and basked in cheers, love and high fives from the New Yorkers lining the streets who came out to support the runners. It was an experience I won’t ever, ever forget. More »
