1.21 Gigawatts Of Fun

The TV Guide

As I mentioned yesterday, David and I met up with our dear friends Emma and Josh for a 25th anniversary screening of the classic 80′s film Back to the Future:


To accommodate Em and J-Z, we decided to head down to Marina del Rey, CA for the screening … and we had a BLAST! Emma showed up with a case of mini Yellow Tail wine and, well, it made the movie’s awesomeness even awesomer. I couldn’t get over how perfectly BTTF captures the spirit of the 1980′s … in almost every scene (well, set in 1985) there is a pop culture icon featured in the film … from portable cassette players (in this case Aiwa not Sony), to jean jackets with buttons on them … to those famous Nike sneakers. OY! I just love the movie so much … it was really a dream come true seeing it on the big screen for the first time ;D

After the movie we went out for a quick sushi dinner and decided to call it a night:


Last night was so much fun … we’ll be hanging with Josh and Emma all Halloween weekend long, since October 31 is our Friendiversary.

No plans for tonight … just gonna lie low and enjoy my Tuesday.

‘Back’ In Time

The TV Guide

25 years ago today the classic 80′s film Back to the Future opened in theaters … tonight, on the 25th anniversary, David and I will be joined by our friends Emma and Josh for a screening of Back to the Future on the big screen:


Josh found out that AMC Theaters around the country are screening Back to the Future today in celebration of the film’s 25th anniversary and we jumped at the chance to attend. This film is honestly one of my favorite films of all time … and I’ve never seen it in a theater. I am so excited, I can’t even tell you.

I hope your Mondays are going well … it’s the final week of October, y’all. Enjoy the Hallowe’en fun while you still can ;)

The Kingdom Of The Crystal Skull

The TV Guide

Last night David and I met up and hung out with our really good friends Tamar, Ollie, Rob and Caleb after not seeing those kids for far too long. We’ve been meaning to all get togther and it just hasn’t happened. Last night, tho, we all convened for food, drink and spirited conversation and had the best time ever. After a quick trip to the liquor store to pick up a bottle of Crystal Skull Vodka, we retired to Rob and Tam’s place to carry on the drinkin’ and conversatin’:


I got peer pressured by EVERYONE to jump on board the latest social networking bandwagon called Instagram … so, you can check out any photos that I post using that fun app on THIS Tumblr page.


I’m not sure how long I’ll stick with this new social networking toy but … meh, we had fun with it last night.

Not sure what the plan is for tonight … David and I may go back to Rob and Tam’s so we can screen the new Dexter promo DVD I just got that has the next 3 eps of the show. There will be no more Crystal Skull Vodka, tho. That shizz is way too smooth to drink responsibly … oy!

Blame It On The Devil

The TV Guide

It is with a very heavy heart that I must report … Paranormal Activity 2 is a terrible movie. Believe me, no one is more bummed about this fact than I am. I LOVED the original film so much, I was really hoping the sequel would be just as good. Actually, the sequel didn’t even have to be as good … I just wanted it to be good. Alas, it is not good … at all:


I shant spoil anything about the film to those of you who want to see this film so I’ll keep my very spoilery comments behind the cut. I will say here, tho, that I am very surprised by some of the good reviews that I read and mislead me to believe the film was good. There are many things about the film that make it almost unwatchable, paramount among them is bad acting. But the writing is also terrible and the premise, OMG, it’s so dumb I can’t even believe they decided to go with it. If you want to find out what I’m talking about, read on — after the jump … More »

Mark Salling Releases ‘Pipe Dreams’ In Hollywood

The TV Guide

Last night my friend Darion and I were invited to attend Glee star Mark Salling‘s record release party hosted by Xomad & BlackBerry Lounge at MyHouse in Hollwyood, CA:


Not only were we treated to amazing food and drink all night long (grub which we were able to order using BlackBerry Messenger on our BlackBerry smartphones) but we were also treated to a live performance and meet & greet with Mark Salling himself. After the jump, check out some photos we snapped at last night’s event … More »

Partying With Puck

The TV Guide

Last night was a pretty quite night around the ol’ homestead … because it was cold and rainy, I decided to flip the switch on our fireplace and cozy up on the couch for the night. Plans for tonight are a bit more exciting. I’ve been invited to attend the CD release party for Glee star Mark Salling‘s debut album Pipe Dreams (due for release next Monday October 25):


I’m pretty sure Mark‘s Glee castmates will be in the hiz for his big night tonight so it should be a blast. I wonder what they’ll wear … or not wear ;) I’ll be sure to tweet as much as I can from the shindig and will have some fun photos to share tomorrow.

Happy Thursday!!

Gettin’ Kerrie-d Away

The TV Guide

Last night I got to spend some time with my dear friend Kerrie who is visiting LA this week. Kerrie and I go waaaaaaaaaaaay back and it had been ages since I saw her last. She lives on the West Coast now and we happened to reconnect right before she arrived in LA this week:


We had a great dinner at Vitello’s in Studio City, CA and managed to catch up on what’s been going on in each of our lives in the past few years. Kerrie is one of my favorite people … she and I had some great times back in the day. I’m so glad we’ve reconnected here on the West Coast.

No plans as of yet for tonight but I’m sure I can find something fun to occupy my time … hmmm. It’s Wednesday, y’all!! Happy Hump Day!

Game Over

The TV Guide

Thank the Sweet Baby Jebus … I finished my game! For the past couple of weeks, I have been horribly distracted with the video game Pokémon SoulSilver for the Nintendo DS. A good friend from way back in the day back in Detroit inspired me to play the newest Pokémon game (well, the newest game released here in the US, Japan has an even newer game right now) since it is an updated version of the game that we were obsessed with back in 2000 … and, naturally, I got obsessed all over again (which is exactly why I won’t have a video game system set up on our TV cuz, well, you’d never hear from me again). I am happy to report that I FINALLY finished the game … by successfully battling and defeating the original Pokémon hero Ash:


There are 2 endings of this damn game … and then there is still more game-play to be had. But, I got it all done … at last.

So naturally, I started playing the next most recent game, Pokémon Platinum. You know what … I need help. And I promise, I’m gonna get help … as soon as I finish this new game. I swear.

Tonight, I’m having dinner with a good friend from Detroit who is now living in San Francisco, CA and is visiting LA for the week. I haven’t seen her in ages, so I’m really excited. Happy Tuesday, y’all!!

‘Jackass’ Of All Trades

The TV Guide

After I enjoyed a nice, leisurely day indoors playing video games (and out of the falling rain outside), I met up with Darion for dinner at Fat Fish for a much-overdue catch-up session. After we sufficiently stuffed our faces, we picked up David and made our way to the ArcLight in Hollywood (along with Kate Bosworth & Alexander Skarsgård and Rumer Willis & Chord Overstreet … who we ran into at the theater last night) to see Jackass 3D in the Cinerama Dome:


I mean … what is there to say. This latest installment of Jackass outdoes all previous Jackass films in terms of grossness and idiocy. I almost barfed (literally) 3 different times … so, I guess the movie delivered as promised? The 3D effects were kinda cool but I was much more impressed with the slow motion effects rather than the 3D. This movie is not for everyone, it’s vile and dumb … but it made $50 million in just 3 days so … it’s a hit! Stay tuned for Jackass 4 … coming soon, I’m sure.

No plans for tonight … it’s been cloudy and rainy for the past few days, which has given me a lot of time to stay indoors and just veg. Happy Monday!!

My Saturday Night Was A ‘Scream’

The TV Guide

Last night I was graciously invited to attend the 2010 Spike Scream Awards which were taped at the Greek Theater here in Hollywood, CA and I have to tell you, I had a really fantastic time. Some award shows are just more trouble than they are worth … the red carpet can be a bit of a nightmare and sometimes the staging and production are pretty lame … not so of the Scream Awards this year:


The Spike Scream Awards are still kinda new so the show hasn’t gotten too big and, therefore, unfun. This year, Spike managed to get some of THE biggest names in Hollywood to attend … making for not only a really fun awards show but THE best Spike Scream Awards yet. After the jump, check out some of the photos that I snapped on the red carpet last night … More »
