Partying Like It’s ’1999′

The TV Guide

Last night David and I met up with our beloved Gillian for dinner at The Counter in LA so that we could catch up and hang out with one another … while we stuffed our faces with delicious hamburgers. Hanging with Gillian is always a great time and we had a blast as usual. Afterward, we came home to relax … David in front of the TV, me in front of my turntable … so I decided to spend my night with Prince back in 1999. More »

Not So ‘Secret Rendezvous’

The TV Guide

Last night David and I met up with our good friends David R. and Darion for a dinner date at Hugo’s in West Hollywood, CA for a LONG overdue catch-up session. While perusing the stacks of vinyl at Amoeba Records in Hollywood last weekend, I came upon 2 copies of Karyn White‘s debut LP (which features her amazing singles Secret Rendezvous, Superwoman and The Way You Love Me) and I *knew* that I had to get the second one for David R. We made the date and had THE best time ever. More »

Friends Pho-Ever

The TV Guide

Last night I got together with my DEAR Adriana for a last-minute hang out session in Silverlake. I hadn’t seen her since before Thanksgiving so we were long overdue. We decided to meet at one of our fave eateries here in LA, a place that she introduced me to a couple years before I moved to LA almost 5 years go. Our restaurant of choice last night was the phabulous Pho Cafe. More »

A Day At The ‘Park’, A Night At The ‘Market’

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a really fun, relaxing day for David and me. I spent much of the day curled up on the couch with my Kindle reading an unpublished manuscript of a good friend’s debut novel (which I am DYING to tell you all about) but I did manage to get out of the house to see some very important people. For brunch, David and I met up with our good friends Irene, Ollie and Caleb. For dinner, we hung out with Darion. More »

Dinner, Party Time

The TV Guide

Last night David and I were invited by Darion and his new man Gary to attend a small dinner party to celebrate the recent engagement of our dear friends Emma and Josh. Gary generously hosted us at his home and cooked THE most amazing meal. We ate and laughed and drank and ate, sang and danced and … oh yeah, we ate. A fan-effing-tastic time was had by all! More »

Purple Reign

The TV Guide

Inspired by listening to the genius soundtrack on my record player yesterday afternoon, I dug out my DVD of the 1984 film Purple Rain and cozied up on the couch to watch the movie for the umpteen millionth time. Without question, Purple Rain is one of my all-time fave 80′s films … particularly because it encapsulates the decade so perfectly. I was reminded again last night why the film rules so hard. More »

For The Record

The TV Guide

David and I enjoyed another quiet night at home last night, only venturing out for a couple of hours to grab some food together. Things have been relatively quiet around the ol’ homestead and, in all honestly, that’s just fine by me. There is something to be said about kicking back and just chillin’ out for a few days. I’ve been able to build up my meager vinyl collection (newly rejuvenated by my Xmas gift this year) and I spent some of my evening getting reacquainted with some of my fave records of all time.
