The Old Kids On The Block

Back in June of last year, the Backstreet Boys surprised an NYC audience at a New Kids on the Block concert by jumping up on stage to perform … thus was born NKOTBSB. Since that time, the megaboyband recorded an album together and went on tour. I honestly never considered seeing the show but I kept hearing such great things … and NKOTB is a group I never saw in concert back in the 90s so I thought … what the Hell. I managed to score a couple of sweet tix for David and me and we went to the Anaheim, CA show last night. I was expecting a fun concert but I was not expecting to LOVE it as much as I did. I gotta say … NKOTB blew me away! More »

Tigers In The Outfield

The TV Guide

Last night David and I met up with Emma and Josh at Angels Stadium in Anaheim, CA to see my beloved Detroit Tigers take on the Angels in the second game of their 3 game series. While the Tigers lost 1-0, the game was really a good one … and if it wasn’t for that teeny, tiny point it would’ve been a much better game ;) We had a total blast tho. Check out some of our fun pics below. More »

All Decked Out

The TV Guide

The 4th of July is a day filled with fireworks, BBQs and the general outdoors … none of which I partook in at all yesterday. I got wrapped up in computer work yesterday, which got stretched out by my spending an inordinate amount of time DJing the I ? The 80′s room on turntable.fm, and … well … that was my day. On the plus side I managed to get a lot of work done but on the down side, I sat in front of my computer all day/afternoon/night long. More »

Free To Do Nothing

Today is Independence Day here in the US and I’m choosing to exercise my right to be free from doing anything. I’m not gonna lie … it’s been a very nice, very relaxing 4 day weekend thus far.

As far as 4th of Julys go, this year’s been a great one. More »

Move Over Jem, There’s A New Hologram In Town

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, Darion and I made our way downtown to attend the 2011 Anime Expo going on at the Convention Center this weekend so that we could attend the Hatsune Miku concert. Hatsune Miku, you ask? Well, she is the world’s first hologram popstar. She is a computer generated singer who has been all the rage in Japan for the past few years. Last night’s concert was her first ever here in the US. As a big Jem and the Holograms fan from back in the day, there was no way I was gonna miss seeing this real life hologram concert. More »

#LOFNOTC FTW!

The TV Guide

Last night turned out to be a very fun night … totally unplanned. I basically was planning to be a Loser of Friday Night on my couch but after I heard that the amazing Amanda Palmer was DJing in the Losers of Friday Night on their Computers room on Turntable, I had to join in the fun. The room was packed with awesome people, including author Neil Gaiman, and the music was fun as Hell. In the history of the LOFNOTC, it was prolly the best night of all. More »

Movie Review: ‘Transformers: Dark Of The Moon’

The TV Guide

After suffering thru the atrociousness of the absolutely HORRENDOUS Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, I was certain that I would never pay to see another Transformers film. But, after seeing the teaser trailer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon last December, I was convinced the new film would be better … cuz there was no way it could be worse. Yesterday, I made my way out to the Arclight Theater to see T3 and found that, for the most part, I enjoyed the movie. Oh, it’s not without it’s HUGE faults but overall … I did like the flick.

Rihanna Gets ‘LOUD’ In Los Angeles

The TV Guide

Last night David and I met up with our friends Ollie, Woody and Darion for a fun concert night at the Staples Center to see Rihanna on her Loud Tour. Darion and I saw Rihanna on tour last year so we were very excited to see her perform again this year. I managed to stay away from photos and videos of this tour so as not to spoil the show and was very happy to see that Rihanna‘s live show changed pretty dramatically from last year to this year. Click below to see some photos of Ri Ri‘s live performance last night. More »
