Lobster Rollin’ With My Homie

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friend Stacey for a dinner date that we planned last week and we decided to make our way to West Hollywood, CA to feast on a delicious seafood meal at Connie & Ted’s. Stacey is from Boston, MA so se knows good seafood and after I raved about Connie & Ted’s lobster rolls, she was game to give the place a try. OMG. Dinner was so good. We had a great time stuffing our faces together last night. Stacey and I have been hanging out a lot lately, which is great for me because she is only the best EVER :) More »

Just Friends

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a pretty quiet day for me, even tho I did go out last night to meet up for a much overdue dinner hang with my friend Tamar. I haven’t seen her since she moved into her new place but she has been crazy busy getting resettled into her new place. When last I saw her place, it was a crazed jumble of boxes. Over the last few weeks, Tam has transformed her new place into a beautiful home. After we chilled for a bit at her place, we grabbed a bite to eat on Abbot Kinney. After I got home, I got to watch a preview of my friend Darion on his new Bravo TV show Friends to Lovers? and that was my night. More »

For Whom The Drake Bell Tolls

The TV Guide

After more than 8 years as an Annual Passport holder for Disneyland Resort and Disney California Adventure theme parks here in SoCal and after about 8 months as part of the Disneyland social club Sons of Anakin, I finally reached the pinnacle achievement in any Disney regular’s life. I finally, at long last, got to meet and take a photo with Nickelodeon star Drake Bell. Now, for the uninitiated, this might sound like nonsense but I can assure you … among the community of locals who frequent the parks year round, it’s an achievement that doesn’t mark your status as a truly legit regular until it happens. You may think I go to Disneyland often but you don’t even know. Drake Bell is THE king of Disneyland and you ain’t shizz until you get a photo with the man himself. More »

Merry Sithmas

The TV Guide

After my race yesterday morning, I got some work done (and some rest accomplished) before I made my way over to my friends Jessika and Jesse’s home for the Sons of Anakin holiday party. A couple of weeks ago, we club members drew names for a gift exchange and Jessika and Jesse graciously offered to host the party in their home. It was the first time since I joined that all of the members were able to spend time together outside of Disneyland. I always have a great time with these folks so it should come as zero surprise that last night was a lot of fun. More »

Ryan + Jenny + Mereki

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my dear friend Eileen so that we could make our way to Pamona, CA to see Ryan Adams and Jenny Lewis live in concert. I was lucky enough to see Ryan in concert in early October and I have two more Ryan shows in my near future but last night’s performance was really freaking fun. After Ryan and Jenny sufficiently rocked our asses, Eileen and I made our way home to LA … and then I met up with my friend Stacey for an even later concert performance by Mereki at an afterhours place called Overpass. It was a VERY long night/morning but a very fun night/morning as well. More »

OMG Did You Watch … ‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Series Finale: ‘Papa’s Goods’

The TV Guide

Last night, the series finale episode of Sons of Anarchy aired on FX bringing to a close the 7 season series that loosely told the tale of Shakespeare‘s Hamlet through the lives of a California motorcycle club. I made sure to be in front of my TV set last night to watch the series finale episode Papa’s Goods live as it aired so that the finale wouldn’t be spoiled in any way. I will recap the episode below with commentary and animated gifs so if you have yet to watch last night’s episode, you might want to come back after you do. Altho Sons of Anarchy was far from a perfect show, it definitely ended in a way that left many fans very satisfied and other fans very unsatisfied … which is exactly what one should expect from a series finale episode of any TV show.

Movie Review: ‘Tell’

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, my friend Darion and I made our way to the iPic movie theater in Westwood, CA to see the new movie Tell. Tell opened in select theaters in select cities this weekend but is also available on VOD on iTunes and Amazon. Tell stars our good friend Milo Vetimiglia with a cast of really great actors and I am SO happy to report that the movie is a really great film. I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect but I was really happy to see that the movie is funny, action-packed and heartfelt. I loved it. More »

Sipping The T

The TV Guide

Yesterday, tho very rainy, was a very fun day for me at my home away from home — Disneyland. My social group Sons of Anakin convened for our monthly meeting so we all had to brave the downpour to spend the day together in the parks. We handled some club biz by inviting 4 new prospective members to possibly join our ranks and we started prep for our holiday party in a couple of weeks. We also got together with all of the other social clubs to celebrate the last Mad T Party concert in Disney California Adventure (who, it’s rumored the show will return in May) … and we all got soaking wet, so, yeah … fun fun fun.

Friendsgiving

The TV Guide

I hope that all y’all had a great Thanksgiving yesterday (or, if you are outside the US a Happy Thursday) because I enjoyed a really nice day with a group of very special friends. Parents-to-be Emma and Josh hosted a Thanksgiving dinner in their new home yesterday and provided us with the most delicious meal ever. Emma had been slaving away in the kitchen for days leading up to yesterday’s feast and I consider myself extremely lucky to be invited to dine at their table. I have a lot to be thankful for this year and high on that list of blessings is my friendship with Emma and Josh. More »

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 »
