Detroit > Canada > Detroit

The TV Guide

So, yesterday … whadda day for me. As you may know, I was a bit M.I.A. around these here parts yesterday because I was up EARLY to run the 2012 Detroit International Half Marathon. My day started at around 4AM and it didn’t really end until well past midnight Eastern time. The Detroit Run was pretty much one of the best things I’ve ever been a part of and I’m just really proud of myself for taking up the challenge. After the race, I rested up a bit before Sarah and I made our way to one of Michigan’s amazing cider mills for an afternoon of Fall fun. Then, I hopped a plane back to LA and here I am again. Monday. Click below to check out some photos from my very bizzy but fun day yesterday and see what I got up to. More »

The Detroit Tigers SWEEP The NY Yankees On Their Way To The World Series

The TV Guide

Last night the Detroit Tigers defeated the NY Yankees by a score of 8-1 in a clean sweep of the 2012 American League Championship Series, clearing the way for the team to go straight to the World Series Championship. My BFF Sarah (who is the BIGGEST Tigers fan alive) and I were able to watch the Tigers cream the Yankees in person last night. Because of the rain delay, the game that was supposed to be played on Wednesday night was pushed back to last night … giving me an opportunity to see the game in person. I’m not a big sports fan but last night’s win felt pretty fantastic to me. More »

BFFs Are Essential

The TV Guide

Today is gonna be a quick work day for me because I’m flying back home to Detroit for the rest of the week ahead of the Detroit International Half Marathon this coming Sunday. Yesterday was a bizzy day for me but one that I was able to enjoy, thanks to a great hang session with my dear friend Emma. I had a taxing afternoon appointment that kind of stressed me out but because I had so much to get done last night, I really couldn’t focus. Emma came over to watch the Presidential Debate with me and we ended up having a really great night together. Once again, Emma saves the day! More »

Trains & Conversation

The TV Guide

My Sunday turned out to be a very bizzy but extremely fun one. I had planned on taking it a bit easy but I received an invitation I couldn’t resist and I was reminded of an event I had purchased tickets for so … I had a full day. First, I made my way out to a friend’s home for a fun kid’s birthday party, then I met up with my friend Josh Rosebrook for a fantastic dinner. Once I was sated, I picked up Ollie and we made our way to the Aratani/ Japan America Theatre to attend an in-person appearance by David Byrne of Talking Heads and Trent Reznor of Nine Inch Nails for a conversation called Going it Solo: Music, Marketing and the Web. So, yeah, I’d say I had a really great Sunday. More »

Great Taste In Friends

The TV Guide

Last night David and I were invited over to Tam and Rob’s home for an intimate birthday celebration for Rob with a small group of friends. Tam decided to host a whiskey tasting party for Rob and we all got to partake in the boozin’. She hired a very educated whiskey man to teach us more about whiskey then I knew was possible … but it was the eating and the drankin’ that was my favorite part of the night (oh yeah, and the camaraderie with my friends). Click below to see some fun photos from last night’s soirée. More »

Emma & Trent’s Excellent Adventure

The TV Guide

After the AMAZING night Emma and I had with Madonna on Saturday night, our fun San Francisco weekend came to an end yesterday morning. We had enough time to enjoy a leisurely breakfast at a place called Honey Honey Cafe & Crepery which, for obvs reasons, we kept calling Honey Honey Boo Boo. We supped on THE most amazing Lemon Zest Crepe EVER! OMG, I craving it right now. Then it was off to the airport for our quick flight home … which wasn’t quick at all because of an hour and half delay. Still, I really cannot complain about a single moment of our weekend together.

Madonna ROCKS San Jose With The ‘MDNA’ World Tour

The TV Guide

OMG … let me tell you how freaking AMAZING yesterday was for me. As I mentioned before, my dear friend Emma and I made our way to San Francisco, CA this weekend for the express purpose of seeing Madonna perform live in concert in San Jose, CA. While we have been having a blast her in SF, it was all about the Madonna show last night. After many months of hearing about the show, I finally got to see The MDNA World Tour LIVE in person for myself. I thought I was ready … but I was not. The show BLEW MY MIND. Hands down it is one of Madonna‘s best live shows of all time and is certainly her best live show in years. BUT, I’ll get to all of that later in the post. The rest of my day here in the Bay area was pretty sweet, too. Click below to see some photos from my really fantastic day yesterday. More »

Tam & Rob Got Hitched!

The TV Guide

This weekend two very special people in my life got themselves MARRIED in front of loving family and friends in San Luis Obispo, CA. Tamar and Rob said their I Dos at a small farm house outside of SLO and no matter how much I try to explain how beautiful it was, I will not be able to do the ceremony justice. I snapped a lot of photos, some that you can see below, but even they are incapable of conveying how truly special this weekend was. As you may know, David and I have attended in sum 7 weddings this year … Tam and Rob‘s was number 8. I don’t want to get in trouble by saying this but … it’s possible we saved the best for last :D Click below to sample some of the beauty and fun that was had this weekend and please, take a moment to send your warmest congrats and love to the newly married Mr. and Mrs. More »

‘Batman Live’ . . . And In Person

The TV Guide

Last year I caught a news report out of London that focused on the creation of a large stage show based on Batman. At the time, I learned that Batman Live would be performed in huge stadiums in Europe … and that the show would eventually come to the US. I was under the impression that the producers of Batman Live were going for a live theatrical performance (a la Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark) that felt like a concert (a la The Circus starring Britney Spears). When I heard that the show was coming to LA, I bought tickets as soon as they went on sale … many months ago. Last night, Batman Live opened at the Staples Center and I cajoled my friend Josh to go see it with me … and it was truly one of the funnest shows I’ve ever seen. More »
