Goddess Kylie Minogue Blesses The Hollywood Bowl With ‘Aphrodite Live’

The TV Guide

Last night Kylie Minogue brought her Aphrodite Live 2011 Tour to the Hollywood Bowl here in SoCal and she managed to WOW absolutely every single person in attendance. David, Darion and I were lucky enough to attend last night’s show and we had THE time of our lives. Because David and I saw the larger, water-filled Les Folies-version of her tour in Berlin, Germany last March we were well prepared for last night’s performance … but seeing Kylie‘s show under the shell at the Hollywood Bowl was absolutely magical. Check out some photos from last night’s performance below. More »

Celebrating Emma’s Birth

The TV Guide

Last night David and I joined our dear friend Emma at Señor Fred in Studio City, CA to help her celebrate her birthday! The last minute dinner was made up of some of Emma’s closest friends and we all had a fun time just hanging out together. To be honest, I always have a great time hanging out with Emma and Josh but it was extra fun getting together for her birthday last night. More »

Last night our good friends Emma and Josh participated in a mentoring program where they, as professional actors, helped elementary school kids learn how to act. David managed to snap a few fun photos of Em and JZ, which I’d like to share with all y’all below. More »

Ms. Lauryn Hill Brings The Funk To Pomona, CA

The TV Guide

Last night, David and I made the trek East to Pomona, CA to see Ms. Lauryn Hill (her professional name these days) live in concert. After taking many, many years off from her music career after the release of her sole album The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill back in 1998, it would appear that Ms. Hill is working on a comeback. Lauryn played the Coachella Music Festival last month and only a handful of dates on her current tour thus far. We found out about Hill‘s SoCal concert stop at the very last minute and were lucky enough to snap up tix for the show. While there were a few problems with her performance, I’d say all in all that she is still an excellent singer and an exciting performer. More »

Rainy Days & Mondays

The TV Guide

The weather has cooled down considerably here in LA and the rain has begun to fall. In fact, the rain started to fall last night so I think we are moving into the “June Gloom” season earlier than expected :( David and I got to hang out with Emma and Josh last night as they housesat for friends and basically just spent the night catching up and eating take-out. ‘Twas a quiet night here in SoCal … but quiet nights with friends are the best nights ever.

Movie Review: ‘Priest’

The TV Guide

Last night I had the misfortune of seeing Priest at the movies and I say that because everything I had seen to promote the film led me to believe that it was going to be an entertaining sci-fi action film. What it really turned out to be was an extremely boring, slow-paced snoozefest that had absolutely NOTHING resembling entertainment to offer. I can’t say that Priest was the worst movie I’ve ever seen but I can honestly say that it’s not a movie that I needed at all to see … or will ever want to sit thru again. More »

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 »
