Chvrches Rock LA

The TV Guide

For the first time in far too many weeks, I’m very ashamed to admit, I finally got my butt outside to go for a run. With the San Francisco Marathon looming in a couple of weeks (YIKES!) I realized that time was running out for me to remind my body that it needs to run for a very long distance for a very long time. OY. After my run, I rested up a bit before I met up with some friends at the Fonda Theater to see Chvrches live in concert. I’m a newer fan of the band but man, I am so glad I saw them live last night … they were really great. I snapped some photos and video of the show, check it out below. More »

The End Of A Great Season

The TV Guide

Alas … the season ended for my beloved Detroit Red Wings last night when they fell in overtime to the Chicago Blackhawks in the 2013 Stanley Cup playoff finals. I have to admit that I am very bummed that the Wings lost their series against Chicago because had they won, they’d next face the LA Kings for the Western Conference Championship and I would get more opportunities to see them play hockey here in LA. But … it wasn’t meant to be. Even tho my night turned out to be a bummer, I’m happy to share that my day prior turned out to be much better than I expected. My very good friend Josh Z cajoled me out of the house mid-day for lunch (which I never do due to work constraints) and we had a very nice time together. More »

Birthday Lurve For Darion

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my good friend Darion’s birthday and there was no way I was going to miss helping him celebrate his birthday. Darion gathered together an intimate group of friends for a small dinner at Perch in downtown LA and we had a blast. As much as we were all there for Darion, he went out of his way to make the night as fun as possible for me … for all of us so, yeah, it was a great night on the town. I know there are a few Darion fans out there so click below to see some of the photos we snapped last night. More »

Diving Into Fun

The TV Guide

On the advice of a lot of good friends, many of you guys who posted your thoughts here on the blog yesterday, I decided to get out of the house and head over to Tamar and Rob’s place to hang out at their Memorial Day BBQ pool party. I know it may sound like I’m beating a dead horse, which is why I try to keep my comments brief, but coming to terms with the reality of how I was betrayed is almost unendurable. I find, all too often, that I torture myself with thoughts, especially when I look back at events and, well, I have to fight very hard to keep from finding a dark hole and crawling inside to hide. I know it sounds overdramatic but, fuck, this shit is really hard. I have realized, tho, that occupying my mind with activities and hanging out with people forces me to think about other things and that has made all the difference for me in the past few months. So, I decided to get out and hang out with my friends yesterday. More »

Birthday Lurve For Emma

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my dear Emma’s birthday and I was lucky enough to celebrate the day with her and a small group of her closest friends. Because Emma knows how to party, she decided to host a fun wine flight fete where we all got to indulge in different wines and cheeses. After we boozed it up, we enjoyed a nice family dinner … and then we took the official afterparty to another wine bar mere feet away from where we started the celebration. It was basically the perfect night. I snapped some fun photos of Emma, which you can see below. More »

Playdate With Gemma

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very fun day for me. After I spent the day lounging about the house, I made my way over the hill into the Valley to hang out with my friend Gillian and her adorable baby girl Gemma. Gillian deffo knows how to get me to hang out … she loves to remind me of all the amazing chain restaurants that exist in the Valley and, well, I simply cannot resist. I spent most of the evening the happy company of these lovely ladies … then I made my way back home and decided to do a bit of dark dancing in Hollywood. Yeah, not a bad Saturday, I think. More »

Undead In Detroit

The TV Guide

Yesterday was my last full day here in Detroit so I did my best to make the most of it. Sarah took the day off from work so that we could hang out and play in the city before my short holiday came to an end. We spent the day in downtown Detroit hitting up some of our favorite spots then I hung out with my parents for a short while before Sarah and I went back downtown to see Peter Murphy in concert at the Magic Stick. We ended the night on the couch in Sarah’s Den of Slack watching bad TV together. All in all, a pretty perfect day. More »

Word To Your Mama

The TV Guide

My Sunday here in Detroit was a pretty fantastic day … it was prolly my fave day of the trip thus far because I got to spend some time with my mom and dad in celebration of Mother’s Day. I chilled with my folks for a while at my childhood home before we stepped out for a nice Mother’s Day Brunch together. Last night, I made my way downtown to see The Breeders live in concert and then made it home in time to watch the Detroit Red Wings defeat the Anaheim Ducks on TV. See? Great day :D More »

Tiger Town

The TV Guide

Yesterday was another fun-filled day here in Detroit Rock City … even if the weather started to get a little stank midway thru the day. My friends and I started our day in Royal Oak, MI where we lunched and shopped before making our way downtown to cheer on the Detroit Tigers as they faced off against the Cleveland Indians. While the weather was nice and warm in the day, it got much colder, windier and wetter as evening fell. We kinda froze our buns off at the game but we had a lot fun … even if the Tigers lost a little bit :) More »

Detroit Is Hockey Town

The TV Guide

Last night was a really superfun night here in Detroit as my friends and I made our way to the Joe Louis Arena to cheer on the Detroit Red Wings as they faced the Anaheim Ducks in Stanley Cup playoff action. As you may recall, I saw these two teams in action on Wednesday night back home in SoCal and the outcome of that game wasn’t all that great. I am happy to report that my beloved Red Wings pulled out a huge victory last night, beating the Ducks 4-3. Click below to see a few fun photos from last night’s game and share in my ecstatic glee.
