The Coming Of The Lorde

The TV Guide

At last! At long last, I finally got to see Lorde LIVE in concert last night and she was glorious! I managed to snag pit tickets for Lorde’s first of two shows at the Greek Theater here in LA and I treated my good friend Eileen to the show for her birthday. We have been anxiously awaiting last night’s show for months so we were really anxious all evening long. Eileen came to my place and I was able to give her a quick tour of my place before we made our way to Mess Hall for a quick pre-show dinner. Then we were on our way to the Greek to see Lorde. The show was so good. It was well worth the wait. More »

Welcome To The Fold

The TV Guide

Yesterday was the second day of Gay Days weekend at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure in Anaheim, CA and, unsurprisingly, I was in attendance. Yesterday’s visit to the parks was extra special because it was my friend Genevieve’s first day wearing her vest for the Disneyland social club she just joined. Because it was her first day as a patched member of The White Rabbits social club, she wanted me to hang out with her in the parks and I was happy to oblige. Gen’s patent husband Charlie and her adorable daughter Audrey hung out with us all day, into the night. We had a blast. More »

Happy 100th

The TV Guide

As I mentioned yesterday, it is Gay Days weekend at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure and since yesterday was my 100th visit to the parks, I simply had to brave the 100+ temps and get my buns down to Anaheim, CA (NOT that I ever really need a reason to go to Disneyland but …). I am happy to share that I enjoyed a really great day with all the gays in Disneyland as well as a group of friends from the Mickey’s Empire social club. After my fun-filled day, I met up with my good friend Josh Rosebrook for a sushi dinner date/hang sesh … and I managed not to melt to death, so, yay! More »

Movie Review: ‘Gone Girl’

The TV Guide

Last night was a fun but long night for me. I met up with my friend Eileen for a double feature movie date at the Arclight theater in Hollywood for a showing of A Nightmare On Elm Street as well as a showing of Gone Girl. I’ve been anxious to see Gone Girl for months so I really wanted to see it at my earliest opportunity … but I also wanted the chance to see Nightmare on the big screen again. The Arclight screens classic horror films all throughout the month of October and Nightmare was the first movie on my list. Eileen had a free night so she was able to join me and a blast was had by us both. More »

Movie Review: ‘This Is Where I Leave You’

The TV Guide

Last night I got to hang out with my friend Edward for the first time in forever and we had the best time ever. Edward has been busy flying all over the place so we haven’t been able to hang out much this summer but we finally managed to pick a night that worked for us both and we finally made it happen. Edward invited me to see a movie at the iPic theater in Westwood and I have to tell you, I had the best time at the movies ever. Not only was the movie great but the luxurious setting of the iPic theater was something I won’t soon forget … especially when I see movies in a regular movie theater from here on out. We saw the new ensemble film This Is Where I Leave You and I loved it entirely. More »

Relief At Last

The TV Guide

Yesterday was another Sunday Funday for me and some friends at Disneyland yesterday. Now that the temps have fallen from the low 100s to the much chillier low 80s, hanging out in the sun wearing a denim vest was almost a dream yesterday. After the sun went down, the temps dropped into the high 60s … which is downright FREEZING here in SoCal. I’m closing in on my 100th visit to Disneyland so I guess that calls for some sort of celebration … or something? More »

Happy Birthday, Omar

The TV Guide

I want to send out a HEAP of Birthday Lurve to my friend Omar who is celebrating his birthday today … in Paris, France of all places. Omar is my BFF Darion’s boyfriend and for the past 8 months, he has made my friend happier than I have ever seen him before. As such, Omar is a very important person to me and the day of his birth is worth celebrating. Darion and Omar jetted off to London a week ago to kick off Omar’s birthday trip and they made their way to Paris this week to cap off their whirlwind trip. I hope you will join me in sending lots of love their way today as they continue to celebrate Omar’s birthday and their loving relationship. More »

Mark Xs The Spot

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a fun day for me. I got to hang out with Tamar and Ollie last evening and then with my friend Mark last night. Tam and Ollie came over to my place to check it out and I’m happy to report that they approve of my new digs. I think I finally got the place up to snuff so that I can have people over to see it so I was happy to host Tam and Ollie as my first guests. After I gave them a tour of my apartment, I showed them the building’s amenities (the roof, the pool, etc.) and they seemed to love it all. After our quick little hang sesh at my place, I met up with my friend Mark at the Cha Cha Lounge for a couple of beers and some food truck eats. It was only the best way to end my day. More »

‘Tangled’ Up In You

The TV Guide

Yesterday I met up with my good friend Gillian and her adorable daughter Gemma at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, CA for an early showing of the Disney animated film Tangled. Gillian and I have been looking for a time to hang out for a few weeks now and we finally managed to get it together. When she suggested I join her and Gemma at the El Capitan to see Tangled, I mean, duh … of course I said yes. After the movie, we grabbed a quick lunch together and then played some video games at Dave & Buster’s :D Last night, I made my way down to Manhattan Beach to hang out with Emma and Josh for a bit. Emma is baby bumpin’ out like crazy so I’ve been wanting to see her for a while now. More »

A Very ‘Lucky’ Day

The TV Guide

Despite the fact that the temperature soared into the millions yesterday, I made my way down to Anaheim, CA to hang out with friends old and new. Last week, Walt Disney‘s first creation — Oswald the Lucky Rabbit — made his debut in Disneyland/California Adventure on a special night devoted to his arrival in the parks. Yesterday was the first day that Oswald was made available for meet and greets with park attendees and I wanted to be among the first people to meet Oswald in “person”. The rest of the day was fun, naturally, even tho it was hotter than Hades all day/evening/night long. Phew! More »
