A Legendary Night At The Rose Bowl

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a long day and a late night … but it was hella fun all the while. Justin Timberlake and Jay Z brought their Legends of the Summer Tour to the massive Rose Bowl stadium in Pasadena, CA last night and I was among the 50,000+ people in attendance. My friend Courtney and I started our day in the early afternoon because we had to beat the traffic of people making their way to the Rose Bowl last night. We got to Pasadena around 4pm for an early dinner and then had to wait for about 35 minutes in a massive line to get shuttled to the stadium for the show. Once there, we had to wait in another massive line just to get in and then had to compete with 49,998 other people just to get to our seats. I know it sounds daunting and exhausting, and it was, but the amazing concert last night more than made up for the hassle. More »

Movie Review: ‘The Wolverine’

The TV Guide

After a nice quiet day of lounging on the couch watching movies, my friend Josh Z came over to hang out for a bit before we hit the movies. I’m very happy to report that JZ is doing much better since his surgery and is now able to almost do all of the things he was able to do before his collarbone injury. I know he’s still in pain but he handles it like a champ. He’s truly one of the strongest people I know so, yeah, it was really great having him come out for a night out. We decided to see The Wolverine and I am very happy to say that I liked the movie a lot. More »

Courtney Love Stumbles Into SoCal, Performs Her Heart & Lungs Out

The TV Guide

My good friend Josh Rosebrook and I have a thing that we do … we like to see Courtney Love in concert whenever she comes to town. We don’t expect the shows to be good or anything but, mostly, we like to hope that Courtney will surprise us and deliver a truly outstanding performance. Last night, Josh and I made our way north into the suburbs of LA to Agora Hills to see Courtney Love play The Canyon Club last night. While I would love to say that Courtney put on a fantastic show, I cannot … because she did not … but Josh and I had a blast nonetheless. Even tho Courtney didn’t sound great (at all), you could tell that her heart was into the performance … and that, in the end made all the difference. More »

Savages Rock LA

The TV Guide

Last night was a BIZZY night for me despite my attempts to try and keep things more chill lately. I made my way out to the El Rey theater to see the effing FANTASTIC band Savages play a show and then I made my way to Sixty Six to hang out with my dear friend Charlie and hear my boy DJ Bizzy spin the party. I’ve been kinda in love with Savages ever since the first time I heard their debut album and I’ve been really anxious to see them live. They played two nights at the El Rey but I had to miss the Tuesday night show because The Oohlas reunion show took precedence. But last night, I finally got to see Savages live and they blew me the EFF away! After the show, I made my way to Sixty Six to hang out with my friends for a little bit … but we ended up closing down the joint. It was a pretty sweet Wednesday, indeed. More »

The Oohlas Reunite In LA For One Night Only

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very special, very exciting day for me. In the early evening, I got to meet IN PERSON one of the most famous cats on the Internets … Grumpy Cat! Yes, it’s true. Grumpy did an in-store appearance at Kitson in Santa Monica, CA last night to promote the release of her book and I made my way out to the west side to get a pick with her grumpiness. Then, I hightailed it back to LA to make my way downtown to see The Oohlas LIVE in concert last night. The Oohlas, as you may know, have been on extended hiatus for some time now and they performed a show last night that might possibly be their last show ever. It was an amazing show, it was an amazing night, it was an amazing day for me — I can’t even tell you … but I can try and show you so click below for photos and video of my fabulous day. More »

Movie Review: ‘Only God Forgives’

The TV Guide

After Darion and I bid farewell to San Diego Comic-Con yesterday afternoon, we rode the rails all the way home to LA to enjoy the rest of our weekend in as relaxing a way possible. I got caught up on some TV and then decided to head out to the movie theater to see Ryan Gosling‘s new film Only God Forgives. The film opened here in LA this weekend and altho I’ve read some really bad reviews for the film, I knew that I had to see it for myself. While I can understand why some people might not like the movie, I can honestly say that I enjoyed it … mostly. Click below to read my thoughts. More »

The One True King . . . Of Comic-Con

The TV Guide

Whew. What a weekend. Yesterday was my last full day here at San Diego Comic-Con and I have to tell you … it damn wore me out! I was doing strong for much of the day into the evening … but as the night wore on, I wore out. I managed to enjoy the day, tho, which was full of friends, fun and zombies … of course. Darion and I met up with our friends Courtney, Christina and James for brunch before we all split apart to do our own things. Darion and I participated in The Walking Dead‘s Walking Dead Escape zombie run which was really fun … Oh and then I claimed my rightful seat on the Iron Throne at the Game of Thrones Join The Realm exhibit. Next, we were treated to a special presentation of The Wolverine (WITH Hugh Jackman present) and then the rest of the night was party hopping … then, the eventual, pooping out. It was fun, yes sir, indeed. More »

Nerdgasm OVERLOAD

The TV Guide

So … where to begin? Firstly, I have to apologize to the San Diego Comic-Con Gods for failing to believe in their benevolence over the years. I’ve purposed stayed away from Comic-Con and now I know that I have been a fool. A FOOL, I SAY! Yesterday was my first full day of Comic-Con and OMG, I was not ready for the massive and OVERWHELMING amounts of amazingness. Truly, I was blown away. Darion and I spent the day inside the convention center trying not to buy EVERYTHING IN SIGHT. Then, last night, we went to a couple of parties that truly showed me just how amazing the Comic-Con experience can be. I took some photos, click below if you’d like to see them (I think you’re gonna wanna see them). More »

Comic-Con Men

The TV Guide

I made it … I FINALLY made it to San Diego Comic-Con and I have to say, so far so good. Darion and I boarded a train yesterday afternoon and made the trek down the coast to San Diego so that we could get the Comic-Con party started! After we checked into our amazing hotel, we grabbed a bit to eat and then met up with our dear friends Danielle and Jean at MTV 2‘s Party in the Park. I’m telling you, MTV throws amazing parties and last night’s shindig was the one to be at. We had a blast! We start doing official “Comic-Conny things” today but if last night was any indication of how much fun this weekend will be, I’m not sure I’m really for all this nerdy jelly. More »

Catching Up With JoJo

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a nice, relaxing day for me in that I did as little as necessary for as long as possible. I think my sleeping patterns are finally back to normal so it was nice to not have to be anywhere to do anything at any particular time. It’s been AGES since I’ve gotten to hang out with my friend Jordan and finally we were able to connect. Jordan has been out of town for the last 12 weekends and that, coupled with my crazy schedule, meant that we just couldn’t get it together and hang until last night. He was free, I was free so we decided to grab dinner so that we could catch up. More »
