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 »

Late yesterday afternoon, David and I met up with our dear friend Gillian and a group of new friends at the Cat and Fiddle Pub in Hollywood to hang out, share stories and break bread together. Altho it was a pretty hot day, we managed to enjoy the beautiful SoCal weather in the cool shade.The rest of the day was pretty low key … so it was basically the perfect lazy Summer day. 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 »

Movie Review: ‘Bad Teacher’

The TV Guide

Last night, against my personal wishes, I went to a showing of Bad Teacher with Darion, Josh and David and, I’m actually surprised to say, it was actually a pretty fun night. Bad Teacher is nowhere near the best movie of the year and, to be honest, I wouldn’t even call it a great movie … but it’s pretty good and much better than I was expecting. For the most part, the film was pretty predictable but, try as I might, I couldn’t resist laughing out loud once or twice. Bad Teacher wasn’t a good movie, necessarily … but it also isn’t a terrible movie. More »

Couch Commando

So … Sunday … yeah. The day started out beautifully enough … the sun was shining, the temps were warm but not insanely hot … it seemed like the perfect day to get out and enjoy the sunshine. In actuality, my Sunday turned out to be a great day to lounge on the couch … all … day … long. Did you know there are places out there that will deliver food, drink and pretty much anything else your heart desires right to your doorstep? ‘Tis true. More »
