A Totally Outrageous 80′s Weekend

The TV Guide

Whew! It’s been a bizzy weekend around here … and I still have another day left. On Saturday night, I made my way to the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA to see a concert performance by Bow Wow Wow and Berlin. Yesterday day, David and I made our way to a pool party to celebrate the joint birthdays of our friends Tom and George. Yesterday evening, we met up with our NYC friends Bradley and Jon for dinner and then last night, I made my way out to the Echoplex in Silverlake to partake of a Smiths Night dance party. It’s been go go go but it’s also been fun fun fun. More »

Two Birthdays Are Better Than One

The TV Guide

Last night was a very fun, very bizzy night for David and me. I managed to get out and run for a bit yesterday … it wasn’t great because I’m *still* not 100% better but I managed to eak out 4.5 miles so I was happy. Last night, we joined our good friends Darion and Ryan for a joint birthday party at St. Felix in Hollywood to celebrate their upcoming birthdays (Ryan’s on Monday, Darion’s on the 28th). After we hung for a bit with a bunch of amazing friends that we don’t get to see enough of, we sneaked off to the Valley to say hey to another group of friends dancing the night away at Oil Can Harry’s. ‘Twas a fun night, indeed.

Word To Your Mother

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a beautiful day here in NYC … perfect for the celebration of mothers on Mother’s Day. David and I spent the early part of the day with his family so that we could shower his mother with all the love we could muster. We brunched together and walked a bit around town. Yesterday evening, I met up with my friends Halli and Erin for a hang session … we talked about going to a movie but we decided to do something better — we went to Outback for Aussie Chayze Froys. ‘Twas a glorious day, indeed.

Superheros & Supervillainy Unleashed

The TV Guide

If we can learn anything by the staggering and record-breaking amount of money made at the box office this weekend by the mega superhero film The Avengers, it’s that geeks rule. For far too long, Hell … for all time, actually … geeks and nerds have been bullied, picked on, looked down upon and made fun of by “cooler” more popular people. In recent years, geeks have come into their own and have taken control of, well, pretty much everything (see the aforementioned $200+ million dollars made in 3 days by geek Joss Whedon). Geeks rule (among other places) on TV, in movies and … in books. My friend David Reddish (Davy to everyone who knows him) has written his debut novel and it officially goes on sale this week. Davy is a bona fide, uberproud geek and his new book Sex, Drugs & Superheroes: A Savage Journey Into a Wretched Hive of Scum and Supervillainy (The Comic-Con Chronicles, Book I) (official site HERE, Facebook page HERE) is an unabashed celebration of the center of the geek universe … San Diego Comic-Con. Click below to check out the cover artwork for Sex, Drugs & Superheroes and learn more about this new book that YOU simply must rush out and buy :) More »

Art Break

The TV Guide

My dear Ollie called me up and invited me to attend the closing day of the Transmission LA : AV Club at the Geffen Contemporary Art MOCA museum in downtown LA and I happily agreed to attend. I had heard about the exhibit but, wonder of wonders, never found the time to check it out. Ollie attended and LOVED the free exhibit so she invited Tamar, Rob and me to check it out before it was gone forever. We had a great time together. A fun Sunday was had. More »

Hurray For Hollywood

The TV Guide

Last night was a very special night for David and me. Darion’s beautiful mother Janai is in town this weekend to celebrate her birthday and we were invited to join the two of them for the performance of the Cirque du Soleil show Iris at the Kodak Theater last night. We do our best to spend time with Janai every time she comes to LA so we were thrilled to be able to share last night’s fun with her. Honestly, I wasn’t feeling very well yesterday afternoon and, sadly, had to pull out of having dinner with them. BUT, I rallied and had a great time at the Cirque show last night. More »

For Real This Time

The TV Guide

Last night David and I met up with our newlywed friends Emma and Josh for a post wedding pow wow. It turns out that other members of the couple’s wedding party were in attendance last night as well … because we all had another wedding to attend. Emma and Josh got their marriage license here in California and were married in Mexico last weekend but … technically, their wedding wouldn’t be legal until they had a ceremony here in the US. So, after a delicious dinner we all convened afterward for a quickie, legal wedding ceremony :D More »

Roundtable Discussion

Last night, Darion and I got together with our friends Tamar, Ollie and Caleb in Hollywood for what was supposed to be a quick drink hang before Tamar, Ollie and Caleb went to a concert nearby. What was supposed to be an hour get together turned into a 3 hour roundtable discussion of any and everything. It turned out to be one of those perfect nights … time truly flies when you’re having fun. More »

Adios Mexico, Hola Los Angeles

Alas, David’s and my whirlwind visit to Todos Santos, Mexico for the WEDDING OF THE CENTURY of my dear friends Emma and Josh has come to an end … and I am back home in LA.

Emma & Josh Got Hitched!

The TV Guide

The deed is done. Our beautiful friends Emma and Josh got themselves hitched yesterday in a stunningly poignant and absolutely beautiful ceremony here in Todos Santos, Mexico. As you may recall, our dear friends got engaged to be married on New Year’s Eve 2011 and last night became husband and wife in front of family and friends. David and I were honored to be groomsmen in the bridal party … and I can assure you, the entire day/night/morning was nothing short of spectacular. Because of my groomsmen duties, I wasn’t able to take too many photos but I did snap a few … which you can check out below. More »
