The University Of Oklahoma Sooners Win The 2011 Fiesta Bowl

The TV Guide

Yesterday ended up being a recuperation day from the effects of our New Year’s Eve revelry so David and I spent most of the day at home. Actually, it worked out perfectly for me because I wanted to stay home to watch my beloved University of Oklahoma Sooners take on the University of Connecticut at the 2011 Fiesta Bowl in Glendale, CA. After winning the Big 12 Championship a few weeks ago, it was time for the Sooners to FINALLY bring home a Bowl Game win. More »

Happy New Year, y’all!! I hope you had a fabulous night last night and a pain-free morning today. David and I had a fabulous time with some dear friends last night and happily celebrated the arrival of 2011.

Goodbye, 2010

The TV Guide

Despite plans to the contrary, I was NOT able to make my way down to San Diego, CA last night to see the amazing Dresden Dolls live in concert. Without going into the details that will likely enrage me again, I ran into a bit of car trouble last night and ended up staying here in LA instead. While I was very bummed that I missed the show, David went out of his way to cheer me up and make me feel better. And, boy, am I ready to say Goodbye to 2010. More »

My Fave Movies Of 2010

The TV Guide

On Tuesday I posted my Top Albums of 2010 and yesterday I was planning to post my list of my fave films of the year … but I had to push back one day so I could see one more film to determine if it was worthy of making my Top 10 list. And so, without further ado, here is my personal list of the Top Movies of 2010. More »

Movie Review: ‘Blue Valentine’

The TV Guide

At LONG last, David and I got to see the amazing new film Blue Valentine, which stars Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling, last night here in LA and I am happy to report that the movie was WELL worth the wait. David and I met up with our BFFs Darion and Emma at the ArcLight in Hollywood, CA for the showing … and hands down, we all loved it entirely. More »

Put The Needle On It

The TV Guide

Last night David and I did a bit of shopping together to put the finishing touches on my Xmas gift from him. This year, I became the very HAPPY recipient of a portable turntable record player! I’ve never been a big vinyl fan (primarily because my lazy ass prefers the ease of use that comes from CDs/MP3s) but I have been a collector of record albums for years. This year I decided I wanted a small record player and David made my Xmas wish come true. More »

My Top Albums Of 2010

The TV Guide

It is that time of the year when I compile my list of favorite albums of the year … and what a diverse year of music it was. To be honest, I really wasn’t wowed by the music of 2010 until pretty late in the year. Some albums snuck up on me as one of the year’s faves, others surprised me entirely … and, of course, some were surefire loves as soon as they were released. Here is my list of the 10 Best Albums of 2010. More »

Movie Review: ‘All Good Things’

The TV Guide

Last night was another quiet movie night for David and me, which to be honest, was the perfect way to spend an uneventful Monday night. A few weeks ago, we got to see some photos of Ryan Gosling in the just-released film All Good Things and based on those photos (of Ryan in a pair of wet and soggy tighty whitey undies) I was complete sold on seeing the movie. Last night, David and I did watch All Good Things and I am happy to report that we loved it. More »

Movie Review: ‘Easy A’

The TV Guide

Last night David and I FINALLY got to see the Emma Stone film Easy A, which came out in September, on On Demand. I had been really looking forward to seeing the film in theaters when it was released but, somehow, I never got around to seeing it … then it was gone from theaters and I had to wait for its release on DVD/On Demand. But last night I finally got to see why everyone seems to love the film so much. More »

Movie Review: ‘Rare Exports’

The TV Guide

The rain returned last night but, thankfully, it wasn’t a torrential downpour … and it didn’t last very long. After a nice quiet day together, David and I decided to take in a movie to end our lovely Xmas Day. A couple of months ago we saw a trailer for a Finnish film called Rare Exports that looked interesting. It tells the tale of the discovery of an evil, child-killing Santa Claus … which seemed like the perfect Xmas Day film. More »
