3 Divas

The TV Guide

I ended up spending most of my Monday here at home, mainly taking care of a few things, so I used some of my free time to spin a few records. Back in the late 80s, I was the BIGGEST Paula Abdul fan. At the time, she was my #1 — over Madonna and Janet Jackson. Over time, I’ve really come to appreciate all 3 pop divas so last night I decided to play some of their records. More »

Good ‘Grief’

The TV Guide

Last night David and I made our way to the Lounge Theater to see a full cast reading of our friend Tim Roscoe’s new play Grief. Altho the play is not yet in the staging phase, last night’s full read-thru was nothing short of amazing. More »

Movie Review: ‘The Rite’

The TV Guide

Last night, David and I enjoyed an impromptu Date Night together so we decided to see a movie … a movie about a non-believing seminary student who gets a crash course in exorcism as a way to make him believe in God. Yes, just your usual romantic fare. We decided to see The Rite (which was David’s choice) and I have to say, the film turned out a lot better than I expected and we both had a pretty fun time watching the kinda cheesy flick. More »

All Is Full Of Love

The TV Guide

David and I spent a quiet night at home last night. I toyed with the idea of going out but I recently picked up a LOAD of great LP records so I thought it would be fun to just stay home and listen to some of them. Homogenic by Björk is one of my all-time favorite albums so I was thrilled to find it on vinyl. I also indulged my hair metal sweet tooth with Def Leppard‘s Hysteria and my inner-goth child with the Bauhaus single Bela Lugosi’s Dead. More »

Accept No Imitations

The TV Guide

The 5th season of the UK series Skins premiered on E4 last night, introducing a new cast of characters on the show. As you may know, MTV premiered the US version of Skins a couple of weeks ago which, IMHO, is just an embarrassingly bad copy of the far superior original series. I was able to watch last night’s premiere of Skins online and was immediately impressed with the episode in the first 2 minutes. The show is that good. More »

Can’t Speak

The TV Guide

So … the sore throat I’ve been nursing for the past couple of days has resulted in me losing my voice :( Because David isn’t here, I haven’t spoken to anyone since yesterday evening … but when I accepted a package today, I tried to tell the deliveryman Thank You and nothing came out. LOL! I was so embarrassed. Thankfully, I’m not in pain and I don’t feel ill at all … but this throat thing has been a consistent minor annoyance for longer than I would like. More »

BFFs

The TV Guide

I spent another quiet day/afternoon/night here in my humble abode watching TV and listening to music … but I also devoted a good chunk of time to reading. I was so impressed with Julia Child‘s memoir last month that I was interested reading another memoir … so I picked up Just Kids by artist/musician Patti Smith. More »

You Spin Me Around

The TV Guide

I kept things pretty low key yesterday. After 5 straight nights out on the town last week and into the weekend, I decided I needed a day off. Waking up with a sore throat was not fun but I did manage to fend it off for the rest of the day (God Bless, Luden’s). Because I stayed home all day, I got caught up on some TV, watched a few movies and — of course — spun a few records. More »

The Sad Goodbye

The TV Guide

Late yesterday afternoon, Darion and I made our way to Palihouse in West Hollywood, CA for a little going away party for our dear friend Jordan. JoJo is moving to Mimi for 3 months to start up a new charitable organization so last night was our last chance to hang out with him before he flies off to Florida. More »
