The San Francisco Treat

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, David and I winged our way up to San Francisco, CA to spend the weekend hanging out with his brother Aram. David’s been to SF a few times since my last visit but I haven’t been here for about 2 years now so … I’m excited to be back in the city. The temps in LA have been in the high 80s/low 90s for the past week … but it is much cooler here in SF. As much as I don’t love cold weather, let me tell you, it’s a nice change of pace. More »

Bye Bye, Baby

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a kind of a bummer day for me … after 3 years together … I had to say goodbye to my beloved VW. Wülfgang Jürgen-Klaüs was the VW Tiguan that I leased 3 years ago and after careful consideration, I decided to give the car back to the dealership. Despite the decision not to buy the car, I did love it and miss it muchly. It was a long, somewhat sad drive to the VW dealership yesterday … I did my best to relish the last moments with Wülfie before I had to say goodbye. More »

Movie Review: ‘Captain America: The First Avenger’

The TV Guide

As I mentioned earlier, I was able to attend an early screening of Captain America: The First Avenger — which doesn’t hit theaters until this Friday. From the very start, I have voiced my concern for this film because I was worried that the movie (albeit a comic book movie) would not look believable. After seeing and falling in love with Thor this past Spring, I was certain that it would be my fave superhero film of the year (considering how disappointing Green Lantern was, Thor really was the frontrunner with X-Men: First Class as a close 2nd). But, I now stand corrected. IMHO, Captain America is THE best superhero movie of 2011. More »

‘Avenger’ Sevenfold

The TV Guide

Last night David and I were invited to an early screening of Captain America: The First Avenger at The Grove here in LA and, as you can see from the photo below, I really got into the spirit of the evening. David and I met up with our friends Gillian and Tim who also attended the screening. My full review of the film is forthcoming but I can tell you right now … I loved Captain America entirely! For some reason, I thought it would be fun to wear a Captain America mask to the screening … in retrospect, I’m not sure it was the best idea. More »

Movie Review: ‘Horrible Bosses’

The TV Guide

David and I had a free night last night and we decided to go to the movies. It was his turn to pick so he chose Horrible Bosses. To be honest, I had heard mixed things about the movie … some of my friends loved it, others notsomuch. David and I were both really curious so we were excited to see it for ourselves. While I didn’t love the movie (by any stretch of the imagination), I also didn’t hate it entirely. Despite the problems I found with the movie, I found myself laughing more times than I expected so … I guess it wasn’t so bad. More »

Back To Life

The TV Guide

After spending a couple of days in the desert of Palm Springs, CA, David and I packed up our bags and made our way back home to LA. To be honest, I don’t think Palm Springs is my thing. I totally get the relaxed vibe but for some reason, all that free time made me feel antsy. I liked our lodgings at the ACE Hotel fine but I wasn’t in love. I will say that it was nice to get away for a couple of days but, meh, I prolly would’ve had a better time if we had stayed at home. More »

Toucan’s Tiki Lounge Is Where It’s At

The TV Guide

So yesterday was our first (and only) full day here in Palm Springs, CA and while the temps were HOT as Hades, we managed to have a pretty fun time. Our friend Josh came out to Palm Springs for the weekend too so he hung out with us all day at the pool and all night at the club. The late night dancing options here in the desert are severly limited but we made the most of it. There was a lot of booze to keep the night well lubricated … ’twas fun, ’twas fun. More »

Deserted

The TV Guide

In an attempt to avoid the Carmageddon shut down of the 405 freeway in LA this weekend, David and I decided to pack our bags and head Southeast into the desert for our very first visit to Palm Springs, CA. I have to say … it’s very different here. I feel like I’ve time warped back into 1960. I can’t say I love it (yet) but it’s deffo … interesting here. More »

Movie Review: ‘Harry Potter And The Deathly Hallows – Part 2′

The TV Guide

That’s it … the end is HERE. For real. Over. Fin. Dunzo. Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 — the absolute FINAL Harry Potter film — opened in theaters here in the US last night at midnight and I was among the lucky folks were able to see it as soon as it opened nationwide. Let me just say this right off the bat … this final Harry Potter film does not disappoint. You want an epic ending, you get an epic ending. You want scenes that will make you cry your eyes out? You got it. You want the most satisfying end possible to a film franchise that has entertained and delighted audiences for a decade? Look no further … Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows – Part 2 delivers in spades. More »

Twice As Nice

The TV Guide

Last night, Darion and I went to a double feature of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Parts 1 & 2 (review forthcoming) and we had THE BEST TIME EVER. Despite the fact that we were both kinda bummed that we were about to bear witness to the LAST Harry Potter film, we were happy to be doing so together. D and I spent some of our time reminiscing about the HP films over the years. My advice for those of you who are excited for/dreading the end of Harry Potter, see the movie with a best friend.
