What A Wonderful Woman

The TV Guide

My dear friend Gillian and I have a tradition where we enjoy a date night together whenever Lynda Carter, aka Wonder Woman, comes to town in concert. We first saw Lynda Carter together back in the Spring of 2012 and then again in the Spring of 2013. Last night, Lynda performed in concert again at the Catalina Jazz Club in Hollywood, CA and Gillian and I were there for another night of great live music. I have been a Lynda Carter fan for as long as I remember. When I was little, I always wanted to have Lynda as Wonder Woman become my wife. I cannot tell you how special it is for me to be able to see her live in concert all these years later. More »

Movie Review: ‘Divergent’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with a group of friends for a dinner and movie hang at The Grove and really had the best time hanging out with everyone. Because it was the only movie that none of us had seen, we decided to see Divergent … which, I now know, was a terrible mistake. Even tho the movie wasn’t very good (at all), I did have a really nice time at dinner with Darion, Omar and Charlie … and then at the movie with Darion, Omar and Sebastian (who tagged in for Charlie). The movie wasn’t great but the company was and that is all that mattered on my fun Friday night out. More »

WWOPD?

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a fairly quiet and uneventful day for me … that is until Scandal came on last night and then OMG, did things get tense. I spent the early part of the day working and then made my way to the Josh Rosebrook Salon to cut off all of my hair then made my way back home to spend some time in front of the TV. Yeah, not very exciting but I didn’t mind at all spending a mostly quiet night in. This weekend will be full of fun stuff so it was nice to have a night off. More »

There’s A First Time For Everything

The TV Guide

A few days ago, I got to spend some time hanging out with my dear friend Sherri who is visiting LA from Michigan and because we had so much fun during that hang out session, we decided to hang out again yesterday afternoon/evening/night. Sherri and I go way back to our high school days and back then, we were big Disney fans (shocker, I know). Sherri and I saw Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, The Lion King — all of the big Disney animated films — when they were originally released in theaters so we have a strong Disney background. It occurred to me during dinner a few days ago that we had the opportunity to spend time together at the Disney mecca, just the two of us. We decided to spend the day at Disneyland yesterday and we had the best time ever. More »

‘Empire’ Overload

The TV Guide

Yesterday, as you may be well aware from my countless updates on social media, was Rex Manning Day which is a day that fans of the movie Empire Records can celebrate together worldwide. Last night, a few castmembers from Empire Records live-tweeted the movie so that fans around the world could partake in the fun altogether. As a HUGE fan of the movie, I was in heaven all day yesterday. I only ventured out for a quick trip to pick up some food but I spent my entire day partaking in the Empire celebration that took place online. It was fun. More »

Party Party Party

The TV Guide

SO, my Sunday was pretty amazing … from start to finish, I had the best day ever. After I finished up work in the AM, I met up with my friend Adriana so that we could make our way to Darion’s mom Janai’s big birthday bash. Even tho we celebrated her birthday together on Friday night, yesterday’s event was her bigger party, open to Darion’s LEGION of friends. Of course Janai held court like the BOSS that she is and a great time was had by all. After Janai’s party, I made my way down to Anaheim to meet up and have dinner with my good friend Sherri who is visiting SoCal from Michigan for a few days. Sherri is my oldest friend, we go WAY way back so it was really nice to spend time with her. Altho I probably shouldn’t've, I made my way to the Echo late last night to partake of the Part Time Punks dance night devoted to the music of Siouxsie and the Banshees. OMG. I had too much fun … and stayed out way too late … and am still feeling the effects today, OY. More »

Young Directors On Display

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with a bunch of friends at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art to attend the 13th annual Young Directors Night event which featured my dear friend Tamar Levine as one of the featured young directors. Her short film Twenty-Two Date Palm Way was selected among the films submitted for this year’s event and there was NO WAY I was going to miss seeing her work on display at LACMA. Tam‘s film was among 8 short films screened last night, which was followed by a Q&A on stage where the directors talked about their work. It was a very special night of happy pride for those of us who came out in support of Tam‘s amazing work. More »

Movie Review: ‘Under The Skin’

The TV Guide

Last night was a pretty bizzy but very fun night for me. I met up with Darion and his mom Janai to have a celebratory birthday dinner with her in Hollywood (before they went off to see The Book of Mormon together) and then I met up with Eileen to see Under The Skin at the Arclight … and then I met up with Tamar, Ollie, Rob and Caleb for a night cap after they saw Captain America. I managed to squeeze in a quick visit to Amoeba Music and ended up coming home with great new vinyl records to add to my collection. Fun, Fun, Fun. More »

She Bangs

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with one of my most favoritest people in the world for a long overdue hang session at a fun little place in Koreatown called Toe Bang. My BFF Ollie informed me of the fantastic happy hour that they do at Toe Bang so I figured, yeah, let’s do it. Honestly, I was really only interested in hanging out with Ollie since we haven’t had the chance to do so for far too long. I missed out on seeing her Tuesday night when I was in DTLA so our hang out last night was a must for me. As expected, Ollie and I only had the best time ever … as we are wont to do :) More »

Watch: The Museum Of Awkward Family Photos Makes An Appearance On ‘KTLA Morning News’

Starring my BFF Adriana!!!
Awkward and Amazing

Last week we learned that the California Heritage Museum in Santa Monica, CA was taken over by a new exhibit by Awkward Family Photos that features a real life awkward photo of my dear friend Adriana (you may recall she was in attendance of the opening night event last week as well). This morning, Adriana was featured on the KTLA Morning News (my favorite morning news program here in LA) where she was interviewed by Allie Mac Kay live on the air. I managed to record the interview for sharing here with all y’all. Watch above and see how adorably awkward my friend Adriana is. Wait for it … her statement at the 2:15 mark is PRICELESS :)
