A Night Among The (WB) Stars

The TV Guide

Last night was my last night here in San Diego for Comic-Con and Darion and I did our best to ensure that the night was a smash success. We were graciously invited to the famed Warner Bros. party to celebrate SDCC with various WB stars which, honestly, is the highlight of Comic-Con for me. Darion and I got to meet some of our fave actors from The Flash, Gotham, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow and more. After the WB party, we were invited to the Nerdist late-night dance party to kick it with Zachary Levi and a few hundred of his closest friends. Altho I have to get back to LA later today, I am so happy I got to enjoy one last superfun night at SDCC last night. More »

Nerd Pride

The TV Guide

So, here I am … in the midst of the biggest comic convention in the world … and I am having the time of my life. Darion and I boarded a train for San Diego early yesterday and made our way here with ease. We checked into our hotel and got right to the business of nerding out. We spent a few hours on the convention floor getting a lay of the land before we met up with our friend Christina for a quick bite to eat. Then, the 3 of us made our way to Petco Park to attend the MTV Fandom Awards, courtesy of our dear friend Danielle. The food and drink was amaze, the entertainment was the best and we enjoyed a really fantastic first night at San Diego Comic-Con. More »

How Sweet It Is

The TV Guide

Last night I got to hang out for a bit with my friend Angi who is visiting this week from Boston and we had the best time ever. We grabbed some grub, got all caught up and then spent WAY too much time playing at Dylan’s Candy Bar at The Grove. Angi was just here back in March so lucky me got to hang out with her twice in under 6 months. I hoping that she will continue to visit SoCal even tho she lives on the other side of the country.

Super Friends Fun

The TV Guide

Yesterday I met up with my friend Grace at Disneyland for a hang sesh in the park and we ended up having only the best day ever. Because of the massive number of people who came out to the parks on Saturday July 4, not as many people came out for Sunday July 5 … which meant that the park was mostly empty … which meant we were free to ride as many rides as we liked without having to wait in long lines. Grace and I met up around noon and didn’t stop until near closing. We laughed, rode rides, ate, took photos and had a really great Sunday Funday together.


Britney Spears was also in the park yesterday and we did our best to keep an eye out for her … but, alas, we never ran into her. I did manage to recreate a photo that she took in the park so … that was as close as I got to seeing Britney in Disneyland. No matter, Grace and I had the best time together. She cosplayed at Scarlet Witch (from The Avengers: Age of Ultron) and I kinda half-assed my Captain America look. We were able to ride pretty much all of the big rides and many of the smaller, must-see rides. I always have a great time in Disneyland but on the visits where I get to show newcomers all the fun that can be had, yeah, those are the best visits. I had a really great Sunday to close out a really fun weekend, I hope you did, too :D

Tamar’s First

The TV Guide

Because my day got off to a rough start yesterday, I kinda needed to bail and get out of the house for a while. I went over to Tamar’s place for an afternoon hang and she told me that she had decided to get her first tattoo. After the year that Tam has endured, she is ready to move forward with a bright new chapter of her life and she wanted to mark the occasion with her first tattoo. She was able to get an appointment with our friend Annie and I drove her to the parlor to get inked. It has been many years since I got my last tattoo and, well, I might’ve been tempted to get some new ink myself. More »

Movie Review: ‘Terminator: Genisys’ In 4DX

The TV Guide

Yesterday evening, I met up with my friend Jessie at the Regal Cinemas Theater at LA Live in DTLA to see Terminator: Genisys on its opening day. Truth be told, I wasn’t really comping at the bit to see the movie … but I was really excited to enjoy seeing it in my beloved 4DX. I learned yesterday that July 1, 2015 was the 1 year anniversary of the opening of the 4DX theater here in LA so it was really fun to also celebrate a year of this really amazing technology as well. My friend Jessie had never seen a movie in 4DX before so, I was very much looking forward to his reaction afterward. I wish I could say that the movie was good. Believe me. Except for the very entertaining 4DX effect upgrades, there wasn’t really much about Genisys that I liked. I will say that it wasn’t the worst movie I’ve ever seen in my life but that’s not saying much. It just failed on pretty much all fronts, which was a real bummer for me. More »

Starlight, Star Bright

The TV Guide

Last night, I met up with my friend Tamar for a night hike in Griffith Park so that we could pay a visit to the observatory to see a celestial event. The planets Venus and Jupiter aligned last night to look like a “twin star”, which is a feat that happens very rarely. We hiked up to the observatory at dusk so that we could see the planets as night set. After we spent some time admiring the view, I made my way home … where I was met with a surprise visit from my friend Jessie … who brought me a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup donut, right to my doorstep. Needless to say, I had a very nice night. More »

Movie Review: ‘Magic Mike XXL’

The TV Guide

Last night I was invited to an early screening of the much-anticipated sequel film Magic Mike XXL so I rounded my my all-too eager friend Eileen and away we went. I remember how much fun Ollie and I had seeing the first Magic Mike movie so I was hoping that this second go-round would be just fun. I am very pleased to share the Magic Mike XXL is a LOT more fun then the first movie was. You should know right off the bat that the central “story” is a very simple one. The development of that plot is … well … nonexistent. But MMXXL isn’t a movie you see for plot, it’s a movie you see to have fun with. There are more dance sequences and lots of skin … and Joe Manganiello‘s full bare ass in the first 5 minutes, so, yes … it deff gets two enthusiastic thumbs up from me. More »

Rave On

The TV Guide

After far too many weeks away, I finally made my way back down to Anaheim, CA to spend the day with my friends at Disneyland. My social club Sons of Anakin held our monthly meeting so it was the perfect chance to meet up with the friends I hadn’t been able to see for a while. Altho it was insanely hot, I really had the best day hanging out with my friends. But, as the afternoon turned to evening, I had to jet back home to LA to meet up with Eileen at the Hollywood Bowl to see Basement Jaxx in concert. We only learned about the Basement Jaxx concert last weekend when we went to the Hollywood Bowl to see Underworld> live in concert. If last week was the perfect chill techno experience, then last night was the perfect dance party rave experience — under the shining stars of Hollywood. More »

Pride, To Be An American

The TV Guide

Yesterday, in the wake of the momentous Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage in the entirety of the United States of America, I made my way to the heart of West Hollywood, CA so that I could revel in the jubilant celebration that erupted there. People from all over the Los Angeles area flocked to WeHo to be part of the electric excitement that exploded. Media outlets from all over the area sent reporters to West Hollywood to document it all. It was a really spectacular sight to see. Many of my friends convened in the West Hollywood park to participate in the celebratory rally that took place there, in much the same way we gathered in the very same spot 2 years ago when the Supreme Court invalidated and abolished the Defense of Marriage Act. While there were numerous celebrations big and small all around the country, it was really a wonderful thing to be part of the celebration in West Hollywood. More »
