‘Friday’ On A Monday

The TV Guide

Today is 4/20 and, as such, the 20th anniversary release of the 1995 stoner movie Friday is being screen in theaters around the country today. I’m sure it comes as no surprise that I plan on attending one of those screenings tonight. I think it’s pretty clear that I am a huge fan of screenings of classic movies in movie theaters and today’s screening of Friday is right in line with my fandom. I’m not sure how you plan on celebrating 4/20 today but my plan is to be at the movies. More »

Running The Strip

The TV Guide

Earlier this morning, I was up bright and early to make my way to West Hollywood, CA so that I could run the inaugural Sunset Strip Half Marathon. As I had hoped, the race was a really great one with a mostly excellent course and lots of great perks. I really love West Hollywood so it was a real treat to run the streets of WeHo, with particular focus on the Sunset Strip, early this morning. There were a few things that really did suck about the race but all in all, it was a really fun experience overall. More »

RSD 2015

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with some of my SoA friends for a night of revelry and bowling at Lucky Strike that ended up stretching into the week hours of Saturday morning … which would’ve been find had I not had to get up early and get to Amoeba Music in Hollywood to partake in my annual Record Store Day ritual. I’m happy to report that my RSD excursion was really successful and pretty much pain-free. The early bird gets the worm, they say, and so too does the early RSD devotee. More »

A Night Out With The Girls

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friends Ollie and Amelia for a fun little hang in DTLA where we grabbed dinner then saw a show. Because we are such big fans of her music and because I was really impressed when I saw her in concert a couple of years ago, we were all very excited to see Azealia Banks in concert at Club Nokia at LA Live. Believe me, I am not a fan of many of the things that Banks says in interviews or on social media but her music is really amazing and her live performances are absolute fire. She was amazing last night, like truly, so I’m glad that we got to see her in concert together. More »

Mac Sabbath Slays, Chvrches Rules

The TV Guide

Last night, I finally got to see the LA cover band Mac Sabbath live in concert and I am very happy to report that it was truly one of the most fun concerts I’d been to in a very long time. Mac Sabbath is a Black Sabbath cover band that dresses as demonic McDonald’s characters. They play up the McD’s theme very well in the look and feel of their shows and even change the lyrics to Black Sabbath songs to make them even better. I went to the show with my friend Eileen and her new man Kevin. Afterward, I hightailed it back to Hollywood to see Chvrches play a late night DJ set at Sound Nightclub … which kept me out until 3AM. Ugh. It was a long but very fun night. More »

The Babysitters Club

The TV Guide

Last night was a really cool night for me … because I got to spend a lot of really great quality time with my little homeboy Duke. His parents, Emma and Josh, attended the Hollywood premiere of The Avengers: Age of Ultron at the Dolby Theater so Emma’s sister Chelsea and I were enlisted to care for the little prince while his parents partied the night away. Yes, we had to send them constant updates and lots of photos so that they could see that Duke was OK but we had a blast nonetheless. More »

Renewing My Vows

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a really fun Sunday Funday for me. I started out my day at a birthday brunch for Tam’s dad Richard and afterwards, I made my way to Anaheim to hang out at Disneyland with my friends. Not only did I get to spend some time with my Sons of Anakin fam but I also ran into and got to hang out with my friend Ashen — who I hadn’t seen in FOREVER! Last week, I renewed my Disneyland Annual Passport for another year of Disney fun, which I picked up at the ticket booth yesterday and immediately put to use. Perfect Sunday was perfect. More »

Yelle Slays LA

Last night, I met up with Darion and Omar at The Roxy to see our absolutely favorite pop star Yelle in concert and we had an amazing time. Yelle is performing at Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival this weekend and next weekend and she booked a pair of LA-area concerts so that fans could see her live without having to deal with the pain in the ass that is the Coachella festival.
