Movie Review: ‘Super 8′

The TV Guide

Last night David and I attended the Hollywood premiere of Super 8 here in SoCal and were finally able to see the movie that everyone has been buzzing about for the better part of a year now. Leading up to last night’s premiere, I had heard a lot of great things about the film … some calling it the best Summer movie of the year — in many years. While I enjoyed the film very much, I wouldn’t go so far as to call it the best Summer film just yet. The movie is absolutely enterataining to watch and I know a great many people will love it but there were a few things that I just didn’t love. While I liked the movie, I can’t say that I absolutely loved the movie. More »

The TV Guide

Last night David and I were invited to the Hollywood premiere of Super 8 which was held at the Regency Village Theater in Westwood, CA and we had an absolute blast! My full review of the film is forthcoming but I will let you know that David and I enjoyed the film. It had been a long time since David and I attended a red carpet event together so we really made sure to make the most of it. More »

Death Cab For Cutie Rocks The El Rey Theatre

The TV Guide

Last night I made my way out to the El Rey Theatre here in LA, CA to see Death Cab for Cutie live in concert. My ex-bf Erik is a huge emo/hipster and it was his influence that got me into Death Cab/Postal Service/etc. We never got to see the band in concert when we were together so last night was my first DCFC show. I am happy to report that the show was really fantastic. More »

Ollieland

The TV Guide

Yesterday, in celebration of Ollie’s birthday, David and I made the trek down to Anaheim, CA to meet up with Ollie, Tamar, Caleb and Rob at Disneyland to spend the afternoon/evening/night enjoying all the fun of Disney together. After a quick bite to eat at Tortilla Jo’s, we hit both Disneyland and California Adventure and tried to ride as many rides as possible. We had an absolute blast. Check out some photos from our fun day at Disney below. More »

‘Winter Is Coming’

The TV Guide

For various reasons, our plans for yesterday didn’t really pan out so David and I ended up staying home all day long … which, in retrospect, was really for the best. As a result of all that couch time I had, I finally succumbed and started watching the new HBO series Game of Thrones that seemingly everyone is talking about. I have to admit, at first I thought the series looked a little too much like Xena: Warrior Princess for my liking but after watching the first 8 eps in a row, I’m happy to say I love the show entirely.

Celebrating Eileen’s Birth

The TV Guide

Last night David and I made our way downtown to Seven Grand whiskey bar to celebrate our dear friend Eileen’s birthday with a large group of her friends. I’ve been meaning to check out Seven Grand for some time now so I was very happy to hear that’s the place Eileen wanted to party … and did we party :) The booze was pretty free flowing, as you can imagine, so a fun time was had by all. Check out some fun photos below. More »

KidneyThieves Rock The Roxy

The TV Guide

I after falling in LOVE with X-Men: First Class yesterday evening, I made my way out to The Roxy on the Sunset Strip in West Hollywood, CA to see KidneyThieves in concert. Back in my goth/industrial phase, I was a big fan of the band’s debut album Trickster. Their song Feathers is still one of my all-time fave songs from my club days. I had never seen the band live before so, last night was my first chance to do so. More »

Movie Review: ‘X-Men: First Class’

The TV Guide

David and I went to an early evening showing of X-Men: First Class, which opened in theaters yesterday, and for the most part we really looking forward to a great movie. What we got was an even better movie than either of us anticipated. Before yesterday, Thor was my fave superhero movie of the moment … but X-Men: First Class has absolutely become not only my fave superhero film of the year but probably my fave movie of the year (thus far) period. It’s really that good. More »

Burn Out

The TV Guide

Last night I met up with my friend Jen and her friends Stacey and Mark at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA to see Cinderella live in concert. Now, back in the day — 25 years ago, when Cinderella first came onto the scene — I was too young to be allowed to see the band in concert. While I was never a huge fan of the band, I did like some of their music and enjoyed a bit that hair/metal music scene. Last night, on the band’s 25th anniversary tour, I finally got to see the band in action. More »

The Boy With The ‘Dragon Tattoo’ Book

The TV Guide

As I hoped, last night turned out to be a very quiet night for me. David and I ordered in food, I played some records and overall just chilled the eff out. Lykke Li performed a concert at The Wiltern last night and I *almost* went … but since I have tix to see her later in the Summer, I decided to take a night off from concerts and just relax. Inspired by the amazing new trailer for the US version of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, I decided to read the original books by Stieg Larrson … finally. More »
