Flashback To Berlin

The TV Guide

Last night David and I were feeling a little “homesick” for Berlin so we decided to make our way out to Silverlake, CA so that we could dine and drink at the Red Lion Tavern. The Red Lion is an authentic German “Gasthaus” & Beer Garden that has great eats, great beers and really great atmosphere. I’ve been dying for a Diesel drink for weeks now (Diesel = Beer & Coke) so I indulged last night. The food was also fab. We had a blast. More »

The Playing’s The Thing

Earlier this week I gushed a bit about my new Nintendo 3DS video game system and after a few days of playing with the amazing device, I kinda hafta gush some more. I continue to be impressed by how much fun the dang thing is. After my late, late night at the Salem show on Tuesday, I was way too wrecked to do anything really constructive yesterday so all I really did was play with my new pet dog and fired bombs at my friends’ faces. See, the Nintendo 3DS really is a marvelous device! More »

Salem Bring Their Spooky Sound To LA

The TV Guide

Ever since I fell in love with the Michigan band Salem last year (to the point that I named their debut album King Night as my #1 Album of 2010), I’ve been DYING to see the band live on stage. Last night, at long last, Salem finally brought their show to SoCal and my BFF Angie and I got to see them live for the first time. I was thrilled to see that Salem are able to bring the amazingness live in much the same way they do on their album. They put on one Hell of a show … literally. More »

NintendOMG!

The TV Guide

Yesterday I was visited by the postman who delivered a box full of goodness that pretty determined for me how I would be spending my day. Over the weekend, Nintendo released their new handheld gaming device the Nintendo 3DS and while I was excited to finally receive my new toy, I wasn’t fully expecting to be overly impressed. As soon as I turned it on, tho, I learned otherwise. The Nintendo 3DS is truly an effing impressive video gaming system. More »

Movie Review: ‘Win Win’

The TV Guide

Last night David and I met up with Tamar and Rob for a fun movie double date and we all had a great time catching up and hanging out. Tam picked the movie, Win Win, and at first I wasn’t all that interested in seeing the movie … but once I paid attention to the premise of the film, I couldn’t wait to see it. Win Win is not only the best movie I’ve seen this year thus far but it’s prolly one of the best movies I’ve seen in the past year. More »

Orchestral Manoeuvrings In The Dark

The TV Guide

David and I made our way out to the Music Box in Hollywood, CA last night to see Oh Land and Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark (OMD) perform live in concert. Last night’s show was the third time I saw Oh Land live in concert and it was really great to see her really entertaining a huge crowd of people who were likely not there to see her. The Music Box was packed with OMD fans anxious to see the band perform here in LA for the first time in 23 years and they really seemed to enjoy Oh Land‘s performance last night. Check out some photos and video from the show below. More »

A Toast To Dame Elizabeth

The TV Guide

Last night David and I braved the rain so that we could grab a drink in West Hollywood so that we could get some fresh air out of the house. We talked about going to a movie but couldn’t decide on what to see so we decided to just go bar hopping instead. We made a pilgrimage to The Abbey in West Hollywood so that we could visit the memorial set up for the late Elizabeth Taylor and drink a toast in her honor. More »

Duran Duran Rock Rock LA

The TV Guide

Last night I was very lucky to be invited to attend Duran Duran‘s amazing Unstaged performance at the Mayan Theater in downtown LA and was finally able to see LIVE for the first time one of my all-time fave bands. Because of the horrid weather, I missed the first couple songs of the performance but I did get to the venue in time to see the BEST parts of the show. Check out some of my photos and some video from last night’s Duran Duran concert here in LA. More »

Shop Around

The TV Guide

No big news to pass along from my uneventful day yesterday. I ended up getting out of the house last night to get some fresh air and there is nowhere better in LA to get some fresh air — along with a bit of shopping — than at The Grove. To be honest, all I did was a bit of window shopping but the cool weather was actually kinda nice so … it was kinda win win. More »
