Lady Go-Go’s

The TV Guide

Last month the iconic 80′s band The Go-Go’s> announced that they would be reuniting and hitting the road one last time this year to tour with Lilith Fair … but it turns out that they will only be appearing on some Lilith dates because they are doing their own Farewell Tour called Happily Ever After. Earlier today, I was lucky enough to score a couple of rad tickets to see The Go-Go’s perform live here in LA at the Greek Theater this July:


Even tho I’m still not feeling totally well, scoring tickets to see The Go-Go’s has cheered me up considerably! I am happily feeling a bit better today so I should be back to my good ol’ self by the weekend, believe me … I am very much looking forward to that. I’m hoping last might was the last of my sickly nights in. I kinda want to go out tonight … tho, I’m not sure what I want to do.

Please, gods, let me be finished with this plague so I can go out and play once again. I certainly hope your week has been going better than mine :)

Better Days

The TV Guide

I am very happy to report that I am finally feeling better today … yesterday was still kinda rough but today has been much, much better. My aches and pains are mostly gone and all that is left if a runny nose, minor cough and a lingering headache. Because I wasn’t feeling much like going out yesterday, I ended up spending most of my time watching the new 2002 animated series He-Man and the Masters of the Universe:


Yes, I tend to revert into childhood when I get sick but I can’t help it if watching cartoons makes me feel a bit better. Look, this DVD set kept me from throwing myself in front of a bus so … don’t judge me please ;)

David and I also decided to take a trip to NYC in a couple of weeks so we spent some of our time planning that trip. We’ll be in the city for a full week, so we’ll have plenty of time to take care of a few things while we’re in town. I haven’t been in NYC since last Summer/Fall. I believe my last visit to the city was to see Nine Inch Nails perform their final NYC shows. I have to admit, I’m excited to go back … it’s been far too long.

Here’s hoping I kick my sickness for good by tomorrow! Thank you, again so much, for all your well wishes ;)

We Be Illin’

The TV Guide

Folks … I’m still feelin’ kinda crappy. Yesterday was pretty miserable and today ain’t much better. I’ve been trying to stay conscious long enough to get work done but the siren call of my bed keeps getting louder and louder and louder:


Unfortch, David seems to have caught a bit of what I’ve been suffering with so he’s slowed as well. We make a perfectly pitiful pair and I am hoping to goodness that our suffering will end soon. I’ve been trying to drown myself in Nyquil as much as possible … so we’ll see how long this lasts. I do want to send love back to all y’all for sending your warm wishes … they are much appreciated. I ain’t dead yet … I will survive.

Sick And The City

The TV Guide

Alas, I am not doing very well today. After hanging out with Darion — who just go over being sick — on Friday night (not that I’m blaming him, the jerk!) and enjoying a very bizzy day on Saturday, I awoke yesterday with a massively sore throat. Most of the day yesterday was spent in bed, but I did manage to drag myself to the couch so that I could watch the Sex and the City movie again for the umpteenth millionth time:


Unfortch it wasn’t enough to make me feel better cuz today I’m feeling a bit worse. The throat doesn’t hurt as much but I’m feeling achy all over. Damn Darion!!! Actually, I’m kidding around … I’m sure it wasn’t him who gave me the plague. Today might be a shorter blogging day for me so that I can drink some Nyquil and pass out. Blech. Hope your Monday is going better than mine :(

#cocosback

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very full yet extremely fun day … firstly, David and I met up with our BFFs Emma and Josh for an afternoon of grilled cheese fun at The 2010 Grilled Cheese Invitational:


Obviously something as fun as a grilled cheese festival is going to be popular so while we weren’t too thrilled with the long lines, we were thrilled with the amazing offerings that were made available. We ate and ate and ate and ate … ’twas fun, mostly.

After we finished eating, we made our way to The Standard hotel in downtown LA for a few drinks up on the Roof Bar:


It was there that I found a very cool piece of street art — an Invader mosaic.

After drinks, we parted ways with Emma and Josh and made our way to the Gibson Amphitheater at Universal City to see Conan O’Brien on his Legally Prohibited from being Funny on Television Tour. After the jump, check out some photos and read some deets from last night’s fun … More »

‘Back-Up’ Gets A Thumbs Down

The TV Guide

Okay … I admit it … I kinda knew what I was in for when I decided to go see The Back-Up Plan with Darion yesterday. Yes, I had read the scathing reviews but I just figured that no self-respecting movie reviewer would deign to give a glowing review to a Jennifer Lopez movie. But because I enjoyed many of her previous efforts, I was willing to give The Back-Up Plan the benefit of the doubt. About 5 minutes into the movie, I knew I was in trouble:


Very unfortunately, the poor reviews for the film are spot on. The film is full of terrible rom-com clichés … but that isn’t even the problem. Jennifer Lopez gives a really horrendous performance. She’s been away from the movie-making scene for many years now … and it shows. She never loosened up and just … looked natural. Her whole performance felt forced and stiff. The jokes were bad and the writing was just … really bad. I kid you not … and this may spoil but, I don’t care … fecal matter is used for laughs TWICE in this movie. I’m sorry but when you have to rely on actual turds for laughs … you’re in trouble.

I will say that there was one shining positive thing about the movie. Find out what it is, after the jump … More »

Hole-ly Disappointed

The TV Guide

Last night my friend Josh and I made our way to the Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood, CA to attend the first Hole concert performed here in the US. With a new album on the way and a few tiny European shows under her belt, Courtney Love‘s new incarnation of Hole was the main event here in SoCal last night:


While I must admit that last night’s concert wasn’t the worst I’d ever seen, it was also far (very far) from the best. The entire Hole performance took place in under an hour — which upset pretty much everyone in attendance. After the jump, check out some of the photos I snapped last night and hear what I thought of Hole‘s first US concert in years … More »

Wing Man

The TV Guide

While running around taking care of a few things yesterday, I happened upon a pair of THE coolest shoes I think I’ve ever seen in my life. Naturally, the shoes were made by adidas originals and were designed by Jeremy Scott. To be honest, it wasn’t even the multi-coloredness of the shoes that caught my eye … it was the wings that were attached:


Yes, I know some of you may think these are a bit ridiculous but I think they are wholly fabulous. I’m a pretty big sneaker fan and these shoes are unlike any I’ve ever seen before. I’m not sure where I’ll wear them, exactly, but you can rest assured … I’ll find the perfect place. Any suggestions?

Tonight, my friend Josh and I will be seeing Hole perform at The Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood, CA and I am excited and very curious. I’m hoping the show will be a solid one but I’m not holding my breath just yet. I’ll do my best to snap some pics to share tomorrow. It should be an interesting evening.

Come See Comme Ça

The TV Guide

Last night David and I finally got to see and catch up with our dear friend Jordan who has been out of town for like EVER. Because it’s hard to nail him down for a visit when he’s in town, we jumped on the chance to sup with him last night. We met up for a nice dinner at Comme Ça in West Hollywood and managed to catch up on all the important stuff that’s been going on in the past couple of months:


Jordan is seriously one of my favorite people on Earth … it was really great getting to spend some time with him again. Thankfully, he’s gonna stay here in SoCal for a while so hopefully we’ll get to see more of him soon.

This afternoon I have a bit of running around to do … and I am NOT happy with the cold weather. It’s been supercold these past few days … currently, it’s only 55 degrees. I know, that’s not really cold … but by LA standards, it’s freezing. I hope it warms up again soon. Happy Hump Day!

Baby On Board

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, David and I made our way to Santa Monica, CA to visit with our dear friends Sashie, Will and their beautiful baby boy Japser for a quick visit with them during their short stay in LA. The happy family made their way down the coast today so we had to make sure to get out and see them yesterday while they were in town:


It’s crazy how big little Jasper has grown since we last saw him last September … and he is such a doll. It was really great getting to catch up with Sashie and Will and to play with Jasper. We had a fantastic day in Santa Monica.

Last night, after a quick dessert stop at Joan’s on Third, David and I made it an early night in.

I hear it’s supposed to rain today so the gloom will likely keep us indoors for most of the day … I’m hoping to meet up with Jordan for dinner tonight … he’s been out of town for ages, it’ll be nice to see him again. I hope your Tuesday is going well :)
