Home, Sweet, Home . . . Again

The TV Guide

After spending FAR TOO many days on the East Coast (partly due to Hurricane Irene’s influence), David returned home from his weekend trip. As you may recall, we moved into our new condo last weekend but David had to fly off shortly thereafter. Now that he is home again, we can finally get started on settling into our NEW Home, Sweet, Home. More »

Show Down

The TV Guide

As I mentioned yesterday, most of my Sunday was all about the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards. Altho I chose not to work the red carpet this year, the folks at MTV (and the lovely Tamika in particular, love and thanks to her) still hooked me up with a ticket to attend the show. I had to pick up my ticket pretty early in the day so as soon as I got my work done, I made my way downtown to procure my VMA ticket. I had some time to kill before the actual show so I met up with Ollie for a brunch hang session. By 5pm, I had to get back to the Nokia Theater for the MTV VMA show … and, well, you know how that played out. I did manage to snap some fun photos from my seat inside the theater … which you can check out below. More »

MIGHTY deadMAU5

The TV Guide

After much recuperating yesterday afternoon/evening, I finally managed to rally enough to get out of the house last night. I met up with Emma and Josh and Emma’s mom and her boyfriend for a late dinner at Upper West in Santa Monica, CA to help Josh celebrate the end of a very successful play run. Josh’s play Blood Wedding ends this weekend and, by all accounts, he has been hailed as THE star of the show … so we were happy to toast to his success last night. After dinner, at around midnight, I made my way to the Hollywood Palladium to see superstar DJ Deadmau5 live in concert. I have to say, I went to the show without any expectations and ended up leaving completely WOWed! It was a great show, no question. Click below to see some photos and video from last night’s performance. More »

Irene Blows Into Town

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friends Ollie, Tamar, Caleb and Rob in Koreatown to welcome our dear friend Irene back home to SoCal for the weekend. As you might be aware, a hurricane named Irene is pounding the East Coast this weekend and as a result, our friend Irene has become a bit of an Internet sensation on Twitter (her username is @Irene and folks have been tweeting at her like crazy). Here in LA, the weather is perfectly fine … and last night we enjoyed a lovely Korean BBQ dinner together to celebrate. More »

Movie Review: ‘The Lion King’ In 3D

The TV Guide

Back in June we learned that Disney was planning to re-release their animated classic film The Lion King in 3D this September and altho we are still a few weeks away from its release, I was lucky enough to attend an early screening of the film last night here in LA. The last time I saw The Lion King in a theater was over 10 years ago and the last time I saw it in 3D was on stage on Broadway. Needless to say, I was very excited to see the film last night. I am happy to report that all of the Disney magic is still intact … and the added 3D elements just make it all that much better. I loved it entirely. More »

Princess Fiona

The TV Guide

Last night Jordan and I made our way to the Largo Theater here in LA to see Fiona Apple play a benefit concert with a few of her friends. Because it had been YEARS since I last saw Fiona in concert, I jumped at the chance to see her perform live once again. Because the show as a benefit concert, Fiona performed a handful of her own songs (On The Bound, Fast As You Can and Extraordinary Machine) and then a bunch of covers of old classics and standards. While the structure of the show was a bit … odd … Fiona‘s singing was as lush and wonderful as I remembered. More »

An Apple A Day

The TV Guide

So … sad news … I was unable to make it out to the Taylor Swift concert last night. We had guys over to redo our closets and they were unable to finish the work before 9pm (!!!) so I just couldn’t get out of the house for the show … and then today I learn that I missed a guest performance by Justin Bieber! FML! Meh. I guess I’ll live. Tonight, tho, I have another concert to go to and let me tell you, I will NOT be missing this one. I will be seeing the one and only Fiona Apple LIVE here in LA. More »

Boxing Day

The TV Guide

Late yesterday, after an entire INTERNETLESS day, I blogged about my Ikea day yesterday … which was only part of how I spent my day. As I’m sure you can all imagine, David and I are still buried under piles of boxes and stuff strewn all around the house. So … our unpacking continues. More »

I Came, I Saw, Ikea

The TV Guide

So … as I’m sure you are all WELL aware, I was very much MIA all day long today. I managed to get one post published here on the blog before my internet connection got cut off in transition for our new service. I was told that the downtime might be minimal but I knew better than that. I decided to do some stuff around the house since I couldn’t blog for most of the day … and my errands led me to an impromptu trip to Ikea. I’ve been kicking around getting a new piece of simple furniture to house my growing vinyl collection and, well, today turned out to be that day. No trip to Ikea isn’t without it’s problems but boy, did I have some problems today. Not only did I have to drive out to Ikea once … I ended up having to do it TWICE in the same afternoon. OY!

Up

The TV Guide

So … we’re moved. After a very long day of up and down and up and down (by our movers, mind you), David and I successfully moved all (and I mean ALL) of our belongings from our old condo on the second floor to our new condo on the third floor. The layouts are exactly the same but now we have hardwood floors, a great wet bar and a MORE SKY view ;D But, despite that this move was easier, it was still — as I’m sure you can imagine — harrowing.
