The Longest Afternoon Of My Life

The TV Guide

Let me tell you about my Friday … my very looooooooong and drawn out Friday … ugh. So, earlier this week I discovered that my car battery had died so I decided to take it into the VW dealership to have it replaced. Now, I know I could’ve gotten the battery replaced for much cheaper somewhere else but I love my car and really like having the dealership take care of these sorts of things. I’ve never had a problem with my car before so … what the Hell. Then my long day began … More »

Bang Your Head

The TV Guide

Last night the second episode of the 5th season of Skins aired on E4 in the UK and I was fortunate enough to be able to watch the show online just hours after it aired on TV. As you may recall, last week the 5th season of Skins debuted with a very powerful episode … and this week’s ep was just as fantastic. Episode 2 revolved around the Heavy Metal headbanger Rich … and his growing feelings for ballerina Grace. More »

The Great Dane Strikes Again

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friends Ollie and Caleb at The Echo in Echo Park to see Oh Land perform her second LA area concert. I had such a great time at her Troubadour show the night before that I was really excited to see her live again … and this time I recorded some video. More »

Oh Land Takes LA

The TV Guide

Last night, David and I had the EXTREME pleasure of attending the first LA concert performance by Scandinavian singer Oh Land. Her concert was the perfect way to end a very fun day. Tuesday brought the arrival of a fun new toy, allowed me to hang out for a bit with my darling Ollie and then be entertained by one of the most exciting new musical artists around. It was not a bad Tuesday, if I say so myself. More »

3 Divas

The TV Guide

I ended up spending most of my Monday here at home, mainly taking care of a few things, so I used some of my free time to spin a few records. Back in the late 80s, I was the BIGGEST Paula Abdul fan. At the time, she was my #1 — over Madonna and Janet Jackson. Over time, I’ve really come to appreciate all 3 pop divas so last night I decided to play some of their records. More »

Good ‘Grief’

The TV Guide

Last night David and I made our way to the Lounge Theater to see a full cast reading of our friend Tim Roscoe’s new play Grief. Altho the play is not yet in the staging phase, last night’s full read-thru was nothing short of amazing. More »

Movie Review: ‘The Rite’

The TV Guide

Last night, David and I enjoyed an impromptu Date Night together so we decided to see a movie … a movie about a non-believing seminary student who gets a crash course in exorcism as a way to make him believe in God. Yes, just your usual romantic fare. We decided to see The Rite (which was David’s choice) and I have to say, the film turned out a lot better than I expected and we both had a pretty fun time watching the kinda cheesy flick. More »

All Is Full Of Love

The TV Guide

David and I spent a quiet night at home last night. I toyed with the idea of going out but I recently picked up a LOAD of great LP records so I thought it would be fun to just stay home and listen to some of them. Homogenic by Björk is one of my all-time favorite albums so I was thrilled to find it on vinyl. I also indulged my hair metal sweet tooth with Def Leppard‘s Hysteria and my inner-goth child with the Bauhaus single Bela Lugosi’s Dead. More »

Accept No Imitations

The TV Guide

The 5th season of the UK series Skins premiered on E4 last night, introducing a new cast of characters on the show. As you may know, MTV premiered the US version of Skins a couple of weeks ago which, IMHO, is just an embarrassingly bad copy of the far superior original series. I was able to watch last night’s premiere of Skins online and was immediately impressed with the episode in the first 2 minutes. The show is that good. More »
