Movie Review: ‘The Visit’

The TV Guide

In an effort to occupy my mind a bit with things other than work-related issues, I met up with my friend Austin last night for a movie double feature. He is a big horror movie fan so he was interested in seeing the new M. Night Shymalan movie The Visit. Honestly, I had been hearing really good things about the movie so I was totally game. For some time now, I’ve been bugging Austin about the fact that he has never seen the 1995 masterpiece The Craft (which is NOT a horror film even tho it gets labeled as such because the characters are witches … but that is an issue for another day) so we decided to see The Craft afterward. One of the movies was entirely enjoyable and a delight to watch from start to finish. The other movie wasn’t the worst thing I’ve ever seen in my life but it certainly wasn’t the best thing I’ve ever seen. Can you guess which movie is which? More »

Overwhelmed

The TV Guide

I’m finding it difficult to write the blog today for much different reasons than yesterday. The outpouring of support and very kind messages from everyone, all around the world has been almost too much for me to handle all at once — y’all are trying to put me out of my misery, right? And then I woke up to read Shannon’s blogpost and that just did it … damn near killed me. I will never be able to properly thank every single one of you, not in any way that can even come close to adequately conveying what you mean to me. I am hopeful that in my remaining time as author of PINTB, I can share with you just how much I love you all. I hope this doesn’t come across wrong but I’m unable to read all of the messages, comments, emails, blog posts, FB posts, etc. because I’m finding it very hard to not fall apart with each new message. I’m going to have to read them in small doses, spaced over time otherwise I won’t be able to function. There is work yet to be done around here, there is fun goss to be had so I plan to do my best to carry on as usual for my remaining time with the blog. More »

Celebrating Tam

The TV Guide

Altho we celebrated her birthday last Sunday night, yesterday was actually Tamar’s birthday so her family, friends and I were able to celebrate the occasion of her birth all over again last night. Tam’s parents very graciously invited me to join them for dinner last night and then afterward, a small group of us met up for drinks to cap off Tam’s day. I always have the best time when I get to hang out with the Levine family so even tho we were celebrating Tamar, I kinda feel like I was celebrating too :D More »

Night Out

The TV Guide

My Tuesday was supposed to be another lazy do-nothing day but I ended up getting cajoled by my friend Austin to actually go out. And by cajoled, I mean he texted me and said let’s go out. We ended up bar hopping to 3 different places and managed to turn Tuesday night into a fun night out. We drank a bit, danced a bit, repeated those two things a bit. It was actually one of my more adventurous nights. I’ve made it a habit to not really go out much … but now that I’ve got a bud who likes to turn up, I guess I’m back on the turn up bandwagon again.

Famous By Association

The TV Guide

After I completed my 4th and final Disneyland Half Marathon early Sunday morning, I spent part of my day in Disneyland hanging with my friend Michael (from the Mickey’s Empire social club) for a long overdue bro date. He and I have been talking about hanging out for some time now and we finally got it together. Because of the holiday weekend, not many of my Sons of Anakin friends were in the parks so Famous Mike and I made a day of it. I also ran into my friends Erin and Chris in the park who are members of The White Rabbits social club. Chris also ran the Half Marathon so I had to give him props, love and congrats. Altho it wasn’t a bonafide Sunday Funday, I did have a great time with my friends in the parks. More »

A Very Enchanting Disneyland 10K Run

The TV Guide

With the first of three races under my belt, I was able to enjoy a very fun day with my friends at Disneyland yesterday after we ran the 10th anniversary Disneyland 5K earlier in the day. Ashley, Jesse and I reconvened at Disney California Adventure for an afternoon together where we celebrated our successful run that day and generally enjoyed one another’s company. I got to spend some time with a couple of other friends, Michelle and Joey, in Disneyland before I called it an early night last night. Then, I was up not so bright and very early to run the Disneyland 10K this morning. Double the length of the 5K race, the 10K run today was double the fun :) More »

The Sons Of Anakin Conquer The Disneyland 5K

The TV Guide

Last night, I met up with my Sons of Anakin compatriots Ashely and Jesse at the Run Disney Health Expo at the Disneyland Hotel to pick up our race materials for the 10th anniversary Disneyland 5K race that took place earlier this year. Today’s race was Ashely and Jesse’s first Disney race so I was very happy to be able to run it with them. We hung out for a bit last night, carbo loaded and got as much sleep as we could before we met up again at the starting line this morning. The race was really fun, Ashley and Jesse did very well and I am very happy to say that I have another Disneyland 5K medal to add to my growing collection. More »

Happy Hour With Duke

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with Emma, Josh, Duke and Chelsea for a happy hour hang session where we could all catch up. It had been a couple of weeks since I got to see my baby (and my friends) so I was anxious to meet up with them. Emma suggested we go to our fave happy hour place — Public School 818 — and I was all, YEAH! By the time I arrived, Duke and the ladies had already gotten the party started with the food and drink. Afterward, we made our way to Emma and Josh’s for a nightcap hang, which was the perfect way to end the day. More »

Wasted Youth

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with some friends to see an intimate live performance by singer/songwriter Bonnie McKee at the Library Bar inside the Redbury Hotel in Hollywood. Bonnie released an EP titled Bombastic this summer and last night’s show was a chance for her to promote the EP and debut a new song or two to fans. I’m a decent fan of Bonnie‘s music but my friend Austin is an uber Bonnie McKee fan overall. As a singer/songwriter himself, he appreciates other singer/songwriters like Bonnie and does his best to show his love and support for them … like, seriously. After Bonnie‘s performance last night, Austin got her to sign his arm … so that he could get her autograph tattooed on his arm. Now that’s what I call true fan devotion. More »

Another Convert

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friend David aka Ginger for a dinner hang at Outback after a few weeks of talking about hanging out. Ginger and I became friends last year when I started hanging out with social clubs at Disneyland (he’s in Mickey’s Empire) and it was discovered that I moved very close to where he lives when I moved to my new place last month. We’ve been talking about getting together to hang out outside of Dland and last night we finally got it together. The poor guy had never had Aussie Chayze Froys at Outback Steakhouse and I felt it was my duty to right the wrong. More »
