Play All Day, Dance All Night

The TV Guide

This week’s Sunday Funday was one for the ages. After I spent a full, fun day hanging out with my friends at Disneyland (as per usual when Sunday rolls around), I made my way to Echo Park to meet up with my friend Ashley to partake in the Part Time Punks danceparty where we danced the night away to the music of The Smiths and Morrissey. At Disney, I got to snap a photo with Santa Claus. At the Echoplex, I got to snap a photo with a Moz cutout. I’d say my day was pretty epic. More »

Xmas Classics

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a really great day in for me … despite a couple of really nice invitations to do something, I ended up opting out so that I could stay warm and cozy in my PJs in front of the TV. I was in the mood to watch one of my fave Xmas movies so I fired up the good ol’ Netflix and watched the 1992 movie Batman Returns. While it is largely considered a superhero movie only, I always loved that the action in the movie takes place during Xmas in Gotham City. From there, I just kept watching stuff on Netflix … including a Xmas classic that I’ve already watched this season — and a trilogy of movies about the antichrist so, yeah, my Saturday was rad.

Eat, Drink, Be Merry Xmas

The TV Guide

Tamar hosted a small get together at her new place last night which turned out to be a pretty rad party. I got to meet a lot of Tam’s friends from high school and got to see a slightly different side to her in the context of her longtime friends. Tam’s place was filled to the brim with happy people laughing and joking around, it was a really great space to be in. We ate a bunch of food, drank a bunch of booze and played some games … which included eating contests and, well, it was only the greatest party ever. More »

Ryan Adams Rocks The Wiltern, Night 2

The TV Guide

Last night I made a return trip to The Wiltern Theater to see Ryan Adams perform the last show of his 2014 tour. Last night was the 4th show I saw in the past month and it was one of the best. From the start, I could tell the show was going to be a special one. Ryan was just so “on” that I was so glad I decided to see the show last night. Last night’s setlist included two of my fave Ryan Adams songs … including his brilliant cover of the Oasis song Wonderwall (a song he hasn’t performed live in some time). Ugh, so good. Click below to see some photos and watch video of Ryan‘s performance last night of LaCienega Just Smiled and Wonderwall. More »

Ryan Adams Rocks The Wiltern, Night 1

The TV Guide

So, last night I made my way to The Wiltern for what I thought was going to be my last concert of the year but it turns out that I actually attended the first to TWO Ryan Adams concerts … which follow recent Ryan Adams shows that I saw in Pomona, CA and Northridge, CA. I managed to get a pit ticket for last night’s show so I was very excited to be up close and personal with Mr. Adams. For the most part, the show was really great … but after the PA system blew, the show had to be cut short early and, well, I can’t go for that. I managed to procure another pair of pit tickets for tonight’s second show at The Wiltern, Ryan‘s last of the tour, for my friend Josh Rosebrook and I so … last night was merely a prelude to tonight :) More »

Lobster Rollin’ With My Homie

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friend Stacey for a dinner date that we planned last week and we decided to make our way to West Hollywood, CA to feast on a delicious seafood meal at Connie & Ted’s. Stacey is from Boston, MA so se knows good seafood and after I raved about Connie & Ted’s lobster rolls, she was game to give the place a try. OMG. Dinner was so good. We had a great time stuffing our faces together last night. Stacey and I have been hanging out a lot lately, which is great for me because she is only the best EVER :) More »

Just Friends

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a pretty quiet day for me, even tho I did go out last night to meet up for a much overdue dinner hang with my friend Tamar. I haven’t seen her since she moved into her new place but she has been crazy busy getting resettled into her new place. When last I saw her place, it was a crazed jumble of boxes. Over the last few weeks, Tam has transformed her new place into a beautiful home. After we chilled for a bit at her place, we grabbed a bite to eat on Abbot Kinney. After I got home, I got to watch a preview of my friend Darion on his new Bravo TV show Friends to Lovers? and that was my night. More »

For Whom The Drake Bell Tolls

The TV Guide

After more than 8 years as an Annual Passport holder for Disneyland Resort and Disney California Adventure theme parks here in SoCal and after about 8 months as part of the Disneyland social club Sons of Anakin, I finally reached the pinnacle achievement in any Disney regular’s life. I finally, at long last, got to meet and take a photo with Nickelodeon star Drake Bell. Now, for the uninitiated, this might sound like nonsense but I can assure you … among the community of locals who frequent the parks year round, it’s an achievement that doesn’t mark your status as a truly legit regular until it happens. You may think I go to Disneyland often but you don’t even know. Drake Bell is THE king of Disneyland and you ain’t shizz until you get a photo with the man himself. More »

Merry Sithmas

The TV Guide

After my race yesterday morning, I got some work done (and some rest accomplished) before I made my way over to my friends Jessika and Jesse’s home for the Sons of Anakin holiday party. A couple of weeks ago, we club members drew names for a gift exchange and Jessika and Jesse graciously offered to host the party in their home. It was the first time since I joined that all of the members were able to spend time together outside of Disneyland. I always have a great time with these folks so it should come as zero surprise that last night was a lot of fun. More »

The Last Race Of 2014 (I Think)

The TV Guide

A few days ago, I was reminded that I had signed up a few weeks ago for the Holiday Half Marathon 5K race and when my alarm went off this morning, I was really reminded that the time had come to run the race. I was hoping to squeeze in at least one more race before the year was over and thankfully, this 5K race fit the bill. I was originally planning to run the full half marathon but in the ended, I decided a 5K was good enough so … earlier today, I ran one of my fastest 5Ks to round out a year of races for 2014. More »
