Movie Review: ‘Kumiko The Treasure Hunter’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my beloved Adriana for a late movie date that we kinda pulled together at the last minute. The last time we hung out, we saw the comedy What We Do In The Shadows but before the movie, we saw a trailer for a movie called Kumiko the Treasure Hunter. It looked really interesting to us so we decided to see it together. Based on the trailer for the movie, I was expecting the film to be a light-hearted, whimsically magical adventure story … but Kumiko is not that, at all. The movie is much darker, way more depressing than I was expecting but, even so, I found it a beautiful movie … even as the story got sadder and sadder. Trust me, Kumkio the Treasure Hunter is not the indie feel good movie of the year but it’s a movie that I did enjoy nonetheless. More »

Movie Review: ‘Furious 7′

The TV Guide

My plan yesterday was to do absolutely nothing but then my friend Genevieve invited me to an early screening of Furious 7 so my plan quickly changed. I hadn’t seen Gen in ages so this was a great chance to spend time with her and since I’ve never seen a Fast and Furious movie before, I figured this would be a good time to start. I was a bit concerned that I might not know what would be going on in Furious 7 since I never saw any of the 6 previous movies but I quickly learned that the movie stands on its own. I have to admit, it was difficult to see Paul Walker in this movie but I have to say that it is a very fitting tribute to his memory. More »

Rolling With My Homie

The TV Guide

Last night, I met up with my friend Stacey for a dinner and movie date in the valley … where we got to see the 1995 movie Clueless on the big screen at the Arclight Theater in Sherman Oaks, CA. Stacey and I have been planning this movie date for a few weeks now so I was really excited when the day finally arrived. She and I met at Public School 818 for dinner (which was amazingly delish) before we made our way to the Sherman Oaks Galleria to see Clueless. Because that movie is one of my all-time faves, I’ve seen it many, many times over the years. But last night’s screening was the first time I’d seen the movie in a theater in many, many years. So fun! More »

Birthdaymania

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a really fun day for me because I got to spend the early part of the day celebrating my friend Caleb‘s birthday with a bunch of my best friends and the latter part of the day watching Wrestlemania with my friend Eileen. The birthday party part was fun, obvs, because it’s always a treat when our group of friends can get together to hang out. Caleb is truly one of my favorite people so it was really great getting to celebrate with him. The Wrestlemania part of my day was fun … interesting and fun … kinda. Eileen and I watched it for kicks and altho wrestling isn’t really my thing, we ended up having fun together. More »

A Most Eggs-cellent Saturday

The TV Guide

My Saturday yesterday was jam-packed with great people and fun stuff to do so I think it shall be recorded in the annals of history as one of the greatest Saturdays that ever was. Because I had to make a quick trip to Anaheim to pick up a birthday present for a party I was going to later in the day, I kinda accidentally paid a quick visit to Disneyland for a few hours before I made my way back to LA to celebrate said party with my friend Stacey. After I was sufficiently house partied out, I made my way over to Emma and Josh’s so that we could get downtown to see a movie at the Electric Dusk Drive-In. I mean, I to play at Disney, party with some friends and end the night at the drive-in movies. It doesn’t get much better than that. More »

Friday Night With Babes

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a really fun day for me, as per usual. I got to spend a bit more time hanging out with my friend Angie before she had to fly back to Boston last night. Then, I got to hang out properly with Tamar and her friends in Venice to close out the night. Angie and I were able to grab dinner and dessert before I dropped her off at the airport. Then I met up with Tam and we met up with a group of her friends to celebrate her friend Peter’s birthday. Great people, great day. More »

Angie Comes Home

The TV Guide

My dear friend Angie moved back to her native Boston a few years ago and damn near broke my heart in the process but I am very happy to share that she was able to fly in to LA this week for a quick trip to see friends (and I suspect to soak up some of the warm SoCal sun). Angie has been very busy since she blew into town but last night, I got to spend some quality time with her at a little get together that was put together by her LA friends. I was hoping to get to spend a couple hours with her but I was blessed with the chance to close out the damn bar with her all night long :) More »

A New Sons Of Anakin Apprentice Is Born

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a great Sunday Funday at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure with my Sons of Anakin friends. Not only did we get to the business of having lots of fun, like we always do when we get together, but we also officially welcomed a new prospect/apprentice into the fold. In order to become a member of SoA, you have to hang out with us for a few weeks to see if everyone gets along (which isn’t hard to do because we are fun to hang out with). Then, like we did yesterday, we determine if we would like to extend the offer to have someone begin the official prospecting process to see if they would like to join the group. We’ve been hanging out with our new friend Alex for a month now so it was time to make him a Sons of Anakin apprentice. More »

Movie Review: ‘What We Do In The Shadows’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my dear Adriana for our second hang-out in two days. We met up in Pasadena, CA for a sushi dinner date, followed by a movie date at the Laemmele 7 Theater. She suggested that we see the vampire comedy film What We Do In The Shadows and I begrudgingly agreed … thankfully, because it was really a very fun, very funny movie. I must admit, I totally discounted this movie the first time I heard about it and didn’t give it a second thought until now. I even went into the theater with a huge chip on my shoulder, daring it to make me laugh. Well, it did make me laugh … a lot. I’m really glad I listened to Aide because we ended up having a really great night. More »

Chillin’ With The Littlest Leprechaun

The TV Guide

My St. Patrick’s Day yesterday was really fun because I got to hang out with my fave person EVER as he celebrated his first St. Paddy’s Day ever. Emma took the initiative and reserved a table at The Peasant House in Sherman Oaks, CA so that we could celebrate St. Patrick’s Day together. Duke, wearing an adorable shamrock onesie, took a break from eating and napping to party with Emma, Josh, their friend Becca and me. As far as St. Patrick’s Days go, this one was a great one. More »
