Breakfast Of Champions

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a pretty standard Sunday for me … it was mostly quiet, very low key. After the bizzy string of concerts almost every night last week, I was really looking forward to doing a whole lotta nothing. In the end, I got 2 offers from 2 friends that I simply couldn’t pass up on … and I’m glad I didn’t. I got to spend my afternoon with Ollie and Caleb and my night with David and Darion. It was a great Sunday, indeed. More »

A ‘Berry’ Good Time With Prince

Last night was my 8th show of Prince‘s 21 Nite Stand concert residency at the Forum in Inglewood, CA (my 10th overall if you count the two shows at the Troubadour last Wednesday) and, not to sound like a broken record, it was another fantastic show. Having seen so many shows already, I have a pretty good idea for how the shows will turn out by now … but hearing the audience explode with ecstatic glee each and every night is an absolute thrill and a privilege. I went to the show last night with my friends Josh, Essly and Garrett and we had a blast! More »

A Wonder-ful Night With Prince

The TV Guide

Last night I attended my 7th show of Prince‘s 21 Night Stand concert residency here in LA (not counting the 2 intimate shows I saw at the Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA last Wednesday) and I can only tell you that the shows keep getting better and better and BETTER! One of my fave new musicians, Janelle Monáe, opened for Prince last night and as if that wasn’t enough to make the night extra special … Detroit’s own legendary Stevie Wonder came out to perform with Prince and the New Power Generation to celebrate his birthday! Last night was truly a Wonderful night ;D More »

‘Games’ Over

The TV Guide

A few weeks ago, I finally finished reading the final book of The Hunger Games trilogy … Mockingjay. Because David and I were traveling and then a host of other things distracted me, I never got the chance to blog about the book. Now that all of the tributes have been cast for the upcoming Hunger Games film, I’m really getting anxious to see the story brought to life on the big screen. Read on for some of my (possibly spoilery) thoughts on the final book of the Hunger Games trilogy. More »

Prince Rocks The Troubadour ALL NIGHT LONG

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, seemingly out of nowhere, The Troubadour announced that Prince would be playing two last minute shows in their tiny club Wednesday night. With almost no warning, tickets went immediately onsale for an early 7pm show and a late 11pm show. Because I am totally crazy, I jumped at the chance to get a ticket for the 11pm show … and then had enough time to get a ticket for the 7pm show as well. It turns out that my friend David Russell and his friend Chris were also attending the 7pm show so we met up at the Troubadour to begin what turned out to be one of the most amazing nights of live music I’ve ever seen.

Tuesday = Snoozeday

The TV Guide

So my day yesterday was a total snoozefest … literally. Thankfully, I’m starting to feel better from the ill effects I suffered over the weekend but I am still not back to 100%. I did manage to rest up yesterday … which isn’t all too exciting but did help me feel better today. More »

My So-Called Monday

The TV Guide

So these cold-like symptoms that I picked up over the weekend have been kicking my butt a bit. I wouldn’t say I’m really “sick” per se but I have been feeling kinda crappy for the past couple of days. Sore throat, runny/stuffy nose and some body aches … you know, the usual. I ended up staying home all day yesterday which actually turned out to be a great idea because I was able to watch a bunch of episodes of the brilliant 90′s teen drama My So-Called Life on Netflix.

‘Thor’s Day

The TV Guide

After spending much of the day yesterday indoors, I met up with Darion, Sebastian and their friend Angelique for an evening showing of Thor. Even tho I saw the film last Tuesday, I was anxious to see it again … and going with Darion and Seb was an offer I just couldn’t pass up. I have to say, Thor was just as good the second time around … I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time I saw it :D More »

The Purple Yoda Rocks LA

The TV Guide

Last night I got to attend my 5th performance of Prince‘s 21 Night Stand residency here in LA and, as you may have guessed, it was a HOT show. Prince invited the Best New Artist of the 2011 Grammy AwardsEsperanza Spalding — to open the show and let me tell you … she was phenomenal. Prince‘s set was tight but not quite 3 hours long … still, the setlist was full of amazing songs and it was very clear that every single person at The Forum last night had the time of their lives.
