A Lady And Her Tramp

The TV Guide

My friend Elena and I met up for a fun movie date at the El Capitan Theater in Hollywood, CA last night for a special screening of the 1995 Disney animated film Lady and the Tramp. As you may know, I am very fond of seeing movies at the El Cap because the Disney-owned theater is famous for screening both new and classic Disney films year-round. In celebration of Valentine’s Day, the El Capitan is showing this classic Disney animated film for one week. As big Disney fans, Elena and I made plans to see Lady and the Tramp on opening night — which was last night — and we had the best time ever. More »

Chillin’ With Duke

The TV Guide

Last night I got to spend some amazing quality time with my new little homie Duke Julian and his parents Emma and Josh for the first time since I met the little man about an hour after he was born last Sunday. Truth be told, I’ve been itching to see Duke again since his birth day last weekend but it took all of my strength to just sit back and wait a few days until the newly expanded family got settled back home. Yesterday was Josh’s birthday so it was the perfect excuse to see my friend for his birthday … and then ignore him so I could fawn all over his adorable baby son. More »

Ballers

The TV Guide

Last night, for the first time ever — at long last — I finally attended my first professional basketball game here in LA. I’ve lived here for almost a decade and in all those years, I’ve never been to a LA Lakers or a LA Clippers basketball game. I’ve been to many baseball games (both the Dodgers and the Angels games), I’ve been to hockey games (both the Kings and the Ducks games) and I’ve even been to a few soccer games (to see David Beckham in action with the Galaxy) but I’ve never been to a basketball game … until last night.

Duke Julian Is Born

The TV Guide

So yesterday was a really fun day for me. I awoke to a text from my dear friend Emma that she was on her way to the hospital to give birth to her firstborn child … the text came at 1:44 in the morning, I didn’t see it until 7 AM. I freaked the eff out, ran to the bathroom to start getting ready to bold out the door, texting Emma, Josh and Emma’s sister Chelsea immediately to find out if the baby had been born yet. Thankfully, he hadn’t been born yet so Chelsea and I planned to get breakfast near the hospital while we waited for the hallowed birth of this beautiful baby boy to occur. Well, he did keep us waiting for most of the day so I was able to get some work done in the meantime but by mid afternoon, Duke Julian made his grand entrance into the world and, let me tell you … he is beautiful.

‘Spawn’ Of The Dead

The TV Guide

My mini obsession with comic books continues into the weekend now that I have learned that the entire Spawn comic book series is now available in digital form. I started reading and collecting Spawn comic books when they first came out back in 1992 but after a couple of years, my interest waned and then fell off completely. I’ve wanted to go back and read the series from the start but the thought of having to collect all of the now 250 issues of the comic was just too daunting a task to consider … until now. For the first time ever, the entire Spawn series is available in digital format and until 2/9, they are available for purchase as a bundle on Comixology at a 62% discount — which is a damn good deal. Needless to say, my goal of reading the entire series is now back on track. More »

Happy Birthday, Andreas

The TV Guide

Because of my very busy weekend, I will not be able to head down to Anaheim for Sunday Funday at Disneyland this weekend … but because today is my friend Andreas‘s birthday, I knew I had to get down to the park last night to help him celebrate his birthday weekend. I met up with Elena in Disneyland before Andreas arrived and then the 3 of us hung out for a bit and then toasted his birthday. It may have been an intimate celebration but it was really fun nonetheless. More »

The Late Show

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a pretty fun, very long day/night/morning for me. I got to spend some time with my friend Josh Rosebrook in the late afternoon and then in the week hours this morning, I met up with my friend Stacey to see the band PPL MVR play a crazy show at the Overpass after hours club (where Stacey and I saw Mereki play a show in December). In between, I had my MIND BLOWN by last night’s insane-o episode of Scandal and, well, it’s a miracle I’m alive an functioning today. More »

Dad’s Day

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last day in Detroit but, because it was my dad’s birthday, it was the whole reason I flew back to Michigan in the first place. Because my parent’s are getting more advanced in age, I am trying to be home for their birthdays … even tho my dad’s birthday is always in the dead of Michigan winter. They can’t really fly out to see me in sunny LA so I’m happy to make the trip back home. My best friends Sarah and Mark joined in the birthday dinner we had for my dad and a great time was had by all. I did get to spend a bit of time with my friends before I had to make my way back to the airport and back home to LA. More »

Back To The Old Haunt

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a fun, full day here in Detroit Rock City. For the early part of the day, Sarah, Mark and I made our way back to Royal Oak, MI to do a bit of shopping at my fave Detroit area record shop UHF. Detroit used to have lots of really great record stores but now the number of open stores is quite small. On my last visit home, I did some shopping at Dearborn Music … this time, I wanted to hit up UHF — and, of course, I hit the vinyl jackpot. I spent the evening with my parents at my home, home before I met up with the group at the Punchbowl Social House to kick off a night of mirth and merriment. Sarah and I ended up at City Club after midnight to close out the night … a place she and I have clocked many, many hours back in the day. It was good to be back again. More »

Painting The Town Red

The TV Guide

Last night my friends and I went out for a sumptuous dinner at my fave place ever, Little Tree sushi in Royal Oak, MI, before we made our way to downtown Detroit to do a bit of bar hopping to close out the night. I deff try to get out to Little Tree every time I come home … and this time, I came prepared. My friend and fellow Sons of Anakin member Emily gifted me a pair of Darth Vader light up lightsaber chopsticks that I’ve been saving for use … so I brought them home to Detroit with me and broke them in last night. After dinner, we made our way to Gold Cash Gold for a drink and then settled in to The Sugar House nearby for a few more drinks. It was cold as EFF outside but the booze kept us warm on the inside.
