My First 10K Race Was Tutu Much Fun!

The TV Guide

Yay! I did it!! I ran my first 10K race and I did so pretty well, actually. It’s been a bizzy couple of days for me but it all paid off earlier today upon completion of my longest official race yet. It’s LA Gay Pride weekend here and the festivities have been going off for the past couple of days. Last night, David and I met up with a couple of his friends for some Saturday night revelry but today was my big day. Click below to see some photos from today’s (and last night’s) fun. More »

Baseballers

The TV Guide

Sarah, Mark and I made our way into downtown Detroit to see the Detroit Tigers take on the New York Yankees at Comerica Park. Altho the game didn’t quite turn out in our favor, we had a blast nonetheless. The weather was beautiful, the game was sold out and there were smiling, happy faces everwhere … er, until we started losing the game. Still, there are far worse things in life than getting to hang out with friends at the ball park on a beautiful (almost) Summer day. More »

Eastward, Ho!

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a pretty sweet day. I made my way from LA to Detroit and did so in relative luxury. I ordered a car to take me to the airport and a stretch limo showed up — not too shabby. Because of all the crazy flying I’ve been doing this year already, I managed to become a Gold Medallion frequent flyer and Delta upgraded me to Business class for my flight to Michigan — again, not too shabby. Upon my arrival, Sarah and I went out for a fun dinner before we met up with Mark for some late night clubbing. All in all, not a bad Saturday :) More »

Only Happy When It’s Garbage

The TV Guide

So … yes … Darion and I saw Garbage in concert — AGAIN — yesterday but I swear, it’s the last time we’ll see the band … for a few months :) We were graciously invited to attend yesterday’s concert performance at the Santa Barbara Bowl in Santa Barbara, CA for the KjEE Summer Round Up (which also featured The Naked and the Famous and Silversun Pickups) and we just couldn’t say no. For the trip, Darion rented a Mustang convertible and off we went! We had SO MUCH FUN! OY! The Best!! More »

Garbage + ‘Nylon’ Magazine Rock LA

The TV Guide

Last night, Nylon magazine teamed up with Garbage to throw a party in honor of the release of their annual Music Issue, which features Shirley Manson on the cover. Darion and I were invited to attend the shindig and we had the best time EVER! Right from the start, I knew the night would be special when I was allowed to check out the Garbage soundcheck :) We met with a few friends and just rocked out with Garbage. I snapped a few photos and recorded some video, which you can check out below. More »

Celebrating The Birth Of Darion

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very nice, very chill, surprisingly productive day. After slacking off for far too many days, I ventured out for a decent 6 mile run before David and I met up with Darion, Courtney and Christine for an intimate birthday dinner. Altho we celebrated Darion’s birthday last week, yesterday was his actual birthday … so a fete was required. More »

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 »
