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 »

Emma and I made it to San Francisco, CA safe and sound and ready to go. After we checked into our fab hotel, we made our way to Haight/Ashbury to meet up with Em’s sister Chelsea who lives here in the city.

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 »

Alanis Morissette Rocks Pomona, CA

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a pretty bizzy day for me, filled with a bunch of fun stuff. Yesterday afternoon, David hosted a panel discussion called Feed Me hosted by Social Media Week. As one of the co-founders of Pop-Up Pantry, he was asked to moderate a panel discussion about how social media changes the way we talk about food. As you might expect, he did an amazing job and made me very proud. Last night, Darion and I made our way out to Pomona, CA to see Alanis Morissette in concert. Again, as you might expect, Alanis put on an amazing show. It was a bizzy Wednesday for sure but also a really fun one. More »

Fit(ting) For A Queen

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very fun, very special day for David and me. Yesterday afternoon we were invited for a hang session at Tamar and Rob’s place to catch up and enjoy some downtime before the couple get MARRIED next weekend. BUT not only was yesterday a day for relaxing, it was also a day for final wedding preparations. Tam tried on her wedding dress for one of her final fittings and she asked us to be there to give our opinions. I cannot even tell you … she looked so amazing. Ollie, David and I were all a mess of tears at the sight of her. UGH. It was a very special moment for all of us. More »

Wow. What a bizzy day it’s been already around here in LA. After a few days of notsomuch to share in my TV Guide posts to OMG so much to share, I’m just really happy to have so much to talk about today. Last night was a fun night. David and I shared a quite birthday celebration together, which was very nice. I also got to hang out with Ollie in person and via Apple FaceTime as well.

An Audience With The Princess, A Visit To The Cabbage Patch

The TV Guide

After far too many months of not getting our schedules together, I was able to hang out with Tracey and my goddaughter Zakiya yesterday evening. After the long drive from Holland back to the Detroit Metro area yesterday, I got to spend time with Tracey and Zakiya for a bit before meeting up with my folks. After that, Sarah, Mark and I drove out to the neighborhood where Sarah and I lived back in the day to hang out at one of our old haunts … the very bar that Jack Kerouac used to hang out at when he lived in the Detroit area about 60 years ago. The day was long but really very fun. More »

Joss Whedon’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ Premieres At The Toronto International Film Festival

The Geek God Takes on The Bard

Remember last October when I let you guys know that I filmed a cameo role in a little movie based on the William Shakspeare play Much Ado About Nothing that was directed by some guy named Joss Whedon? Yeah, well, that film made its worldwide debut at the The Elgin Theatre at the Toronto International Film Festival over the weekend and many of the film’s principal actors were in attendance. Sadly, I could not attend but folks like Amy Acker (Angel), Alexis Denisof (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel), Nathan Fillion (Firefly, Castle), Clark Gregg (The Avengers), Tom Lenk (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and others did attend the red carpet premiere in my stead. My good friends Emma Bates and Joshua Zar were also at the event because they, too, star in the film :D Click below to see some photos from the Much Ado premiere at TIFF and read an AMAZING review of the film itself.
