Welcome Back Party

The TV Guide

After the super fun weekend that I got to enjoy celebrating my birthday with my friends, you might expect that I would decide to just stay home and chill out on my Monday night. Yeah, that’s not what happened. The president of my Disneyland social club Sons of Anakin, who was away on vacay for about 3 weeks, made his grand return last night and a bunch of us met up with him at Disney California Adventure for a little welcome back party. The parks were wonderfully empty and the weather was cool & breezy … which meant it was the perfect night of fun at Disney. More »

The Happiest Birthday On Earth

The TV Guide

After my pretty epic birthday party Saturday night (thrown for me by my truly amazing friends), I knew I had to get my buns down to Disneyland so that I could properly celebrate my birthday. With rare exception, I’ve celebrated my birthday at Disneyland every year that I’ve lived here in LA so, it simply had to be done. I met up with some of my peeps in the Sons of Anakin social club and we had the best day ever! I’m not sure how your Sunday turned out but my Sunday turned out pretty spectacularly :D More »

4T

The TV Guide

First and foremost, I have to thank every single one of your for the barrage of messages, tweets and comments that you have been sending me all weekend for my birthday. I have been floored by all of the love that you guys have been throwing my way. It may sound weird but I carry you guys in my heart with me wherever I go because, hello, we spend so much time “together” on a daily basis … and have done so, for years! My friends threw me the most amazing party last night and they managed to include you guys (represented by OG Emily, Iris and Devonte Antonio) in the fun. So thank you. My friends, OMG, I can’t even begin to thank them for being the most amazing people on earth. I had the best day ever. More »

My Only Wish (This Year)

The TV Guide

So … today’s my birthday and even tho I never take a day off from blogging … I’m taking today off from blogging. BUT, even tho I’m doing my usual day’s worth of work today, I can’t let the day go by without posting something … so here goes. This November, I will be running my 10th and likely final marathon in NYC and in the hopes of going out with a bang, I am raising funds for an amazing NYC organization called Team For Kids. Because I have been blessed beyond belief personally, I am hoping that YOU will help me share some of the wealth with an organization that helps the kids of NYC. I’ve asked all of my family and friends to NOT spend a single penny on me for my birthday (or otherwise) this year in the hopes that they will use the money they might otherwise spend on gifts, cards, balloons, drinks, etc. for a donation for Team For Kids. I’m also asking you guys to do the same :D More »

Movie Review: ‘Boyhood’

The TV Guide

For a few months now (years for some) we have been hearing about Richard Linklater‘s film Boyhood which was filmed over a 12 year time frame. Last night, I was able to be among the first people in LA to see the movie in full. I met up with my friends Emma, Eileen and Josh at the Arclight in Hollywood to see Boyhood and I am happy to relay that we were all completely floored by the film. I mean … wow. Before I get into a few details about the movie, I must point out first that it is my humble opinion that Boyhood will be one of, if not, THE best movies of the year. Hands down. There is a poignancy to this very simple story of one boy and his family that will resonate with so many people. I’m really excited for more people to see the movie so that they can share the experience as well. More »

Movie Review: ‘Obvious Child’

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with Emma for a quick movie date because I learned a long time ago that when Emma offers a movie invite, you absolutely have to say yes. She suggested we see an indie film titled Obvious Child and altho I knew nothing about the movie at all, I jumped at the chance to see it with Em. As usual, Emma proved to have excellent taste in films becuase we both loved Obvious Child very much. The movie stars comedienne Jenny Slate in an amazing break-out role that, I hope, will provide her with more acting opportunities in the future. More »

The Happy Monday

The TV Guide

And so, I am back in LA again. Normally, when I take a weekend trip, I tend to fly back home on the last Sunday night flight. This time around, Adriana and I decided to stay one extra day … which made all the difference in the world. Because we had a whole day unplanned, we were able to hang out with friends in the city and just take the day as it unfolded. Aide ran off to hang with some of her peeps and I was able to meet up with some of my peeps. I met up with Courtney for lunch (she’s in the city for a few weeks staying with her man) and then afterward, we met up with my old LA friend Paul who has been living in NYC for the past few years (some of you longtime readers will remember that he was a founding member of Le GangTM. Our late flight was delayed a bit so Adriana and I got even more time to play in the city and, well, we just had the best monday ever. More »

Broadway Weekend Mission: Accomplished

The TV Guide

And so … my whirlwind Broadway weekend here in NYC has come to a close and it has been a smashing success. When Adriana and I decided to come to NYC to see shows last weekend, I was hoping we’d find the time to do and see everything that we wanted but I didn’t really know if we we’d be successful. I’m happy to report that we not only did everything we wanted to do but we even had time to do things we didn’t even plan for. My day was bizzy yesterday since I saw two shows back to back but it really was the perfect end to a really fun weekend in the city. More »

Fallin In LURVE With King Josev

The TV Guide

So … my Saturday? Amazing! I got to hang out with a bunch of great people, I got to experience breathtaking artwork and see an amazing Broadway show … but all of that was rendered irrelevant by the fact that I got to hold in my arms the Pink is the new Blog baby Josev!!! OMG. I can’t even express how much I love that baby! Oh yeah, I got to hang out with his mom Shannon, too, but … OMG JOSEV! Adriana and I did get to enjoy a great brunch with our friend Oriana before I met up with Shannon and Josev and then it was all about that baby. The bunch of us made our way out to Brooklyn to see the Kara Walker exhibit … then it was back to Manhattan so I could see Hedwig and the Angry Inch … and then dance into the wee hours of the morning at Baracuda with music by my friend Jon Ali (with an extra special cameo by my homie Bradley from MuuMuse). Saturday = epicness. More »

May July 4th Be With You

The TV Guide

Yesterday was Independence Day here in the US and, as such, I celebrated my right to go shopping … even if that shopping was all window shopping. You know, in many places in the US, stores and restaurants are closed on the 4th of July but not so here in NYC. Consumerism was very alive and well, let me tell you. It rained for a short while in the early part of the day but honestly, I didn’t mind it at all. We don’t get rain at all in SoCal so it was a nice change of pace. After I was all walked out, I met up with Adriana and her friends Darren and Maggie for an early dinner before we made our way to Brooklyn to watch the 4th of July fireworks from the waterfront. It was a great day here in the city, let me tell you! More »
