The Rock Show

The TV Guide

After letting the piles get way too tall, I finally managed to get the vast majority of my laundry done. I still a load left to take care of but … well, Rome wasn’t cleaned in a day. My night last night wasn’t all that exciting … but my morning today was. I managed to get a pair of tickets for the Glee concert that will take place at the Gibson Amphitheater at Universal City, CA in May as well as a pair of tix to see Ok Go in concert at the Music Box/Henry Fonda Theater in Hollywood, CA the day after:


I am very excited for these two shows. I’ve already been able to see Brendan Benson and Mariah Carey in concert and I’ve got a few other great shows to look forward to — Ted Leo and the Pharmacists, Melissa Auf Der Maur, Owl City and now these two shows. Considering how amazing the line up for Lilith Fair is turning out, I’ll prolly be there as well. 2010 is shaping up to be a great year for concerts … and we’ve only just begun! Woot!! Are any of y’all planning on seeing any of these shows too?

Abe-y The Vampire Slayer

The TV Guide

Last night was a pretty quiet night … altho I didn’t get those “things around the house” completed (or even started, so laundry this afternoon — I swear it!) I did manage to get one thing accomplished. I made my way out to Book Soup to pick up a copy of Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter autographed by author Seth Grahame-Smith:


As you may be aware, Grahame-Smith is also the author of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies, which Natalie Portman is making into a film. Lincoln: Vampire Hunter may have *just* been released in stores but it’s already been optioned to become a movie. I understand Tim Burton is going to adapt the novel for the big screen. I’ve not read the book yet but I’m really looking forward to … especially after watching the book’s video trailer (yes, this book has a video trailer):


Awesome, right? So yeah … that’s all I did last night. No plans for tonight either … there’s that laundry I mentioned … and mebbe some reading?

‘Alice’ In Underland

The TV Guide

Land night David and I were fortunate enough to attend an early screening of the new Tim Burton film Alice In Wonderland at the El Capitan Theatre on Hollywood Blvd. in Hollywood, CA. Needless to say, I was absolutely THRILLED that we were able to get this sneak peek at this highly-anticipated film:


I am also thrilled to pass along the news that I LOVED the film totally and entirely. Because the film doesn’t open until Friday, I’ll keep my marginally spoilery review behind the cut. So, if you want to read my thoughts on the film and see some of the fun pics I snapped last night you can do so after the jump … More »

Hangin’ At The Mouse’s House

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a fantastically fun day for David and me … we met up with our friend who is also named David (visiting from NYC) and we 3 made our way down to Disneyland for the day. I have been DYING to see Captain EO (which began showing at Disney last Tuesday) and this was our weekend to do so:


We started our day at the California Adventure park but I have to advise any of y’all thinking of going … stay away for a while. Half the park is closed off for renovations and, except for the California Screamin’ rollercoaster, it’s not worth the hassle. We had a much better time at Disneyland. After the jump, check out some of our fun photos and find out who WE MET at Disneyland at the end of the night … More »

Moon Lighting

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a fairly pretty day … while it rained off and on all day long, the bursts of sunlight we got in between were really rejuvenating. I did spend most of the day indoors reading (I finally finished the entire Sandman series) but I did venture out last night to run a few errands. The moon was full last night so it was such a treat to drive around in the moonlight:


February’s full moon is called the Ice Moon but it was far from icy here in SoCal :) Today is a gloriously sunny day … perfect for a trip down to Disneyland!! We have a friend visiting from NYC this week and he wants to go to Disney so David and I postponed the trip we were gonna make earlier this week ’til today so we could all enjoy Disney together. I haven’t been to Disney since it was all decked out in Xmas decorations so … I’m excited!! I’ll see about taking some fun photos to share tomorrow ;) Happy Sunday!!

Trunks Show

The TV Guide

Last night David and I met up with our BFFs Josh and Emma for a little double date night fun. We started out the night at 8oz. Burger Bar and then we made our way to WeHo for a gay ol’ time:


We met up with some of Emma’s friends at Trunks for some cheap drinks and then we made our way to Mickey’s for some dancing … poor Joshie was being hounded all night long by the rabid guys at Mickey’s that we had to protect him from the horde ;) We had a lot of fun tho … fun that we all are paying for today … ugh.

I’m not sure what the plan for today is … the rain has been falling off and on all day so … it might be a good day to hibernate. Hope your Saturday is a good one :)

Southern Comfort

The TV Guide

Today looks like it’s gonna be a lazy day … David and I have no plans for tonight … tho we are thinkin’ of heading down South to the beach to hang out with our friends Josh and Emma. We’ve actually been with them on the past 2 full moons and with this month’s moon happening this weekend, it’s about time we got down to see them again:


It will be nice to see our friends, mebbe get some Chick-Fil-A while we’re in the neighborhood and just chillax for the evening. There are plans to hit up a party tomorrow night and then mebbe trek down to Disneyland on Sunday so … the weekend will be fun.

Wherever you are, whatever you’ve got goin’ on … I hope this is a fab weekend for you too!!

Mr. ‘Sandman’

The TV Guide

Just as I suspected, last night’s rain drizzle did a great job of keeping me indoors … so I curled up with my Sandman graphic novels and managed to read my way thru many of them all last night:


While these beautiful hardbound copies of The Absolute Sandman and The Absolute Death sat on my bookshelf, I re-read my way thru my beloved dog-eared paperback graphic novel books. I should be done with the whole series (again) very soon and then I plan to read Absolute Death. I still have a lot of other reading to get thru (including this month’s selection for The Turtle Party: Book Club) but I’ve been in such a Neil Gaiman way these days. It’s very easy to want to say lost among the Endless:


I’m very happy to report that it is, once again, sunny and warm here in SoCal today … which means, I’m gonna get out there and soak up the sun! Hope it’s sunny and warm wherever you are!! WEE!

Hark! The Herald ‘Imperfect Angel’ Sings

The TV Guide

Last night David and I had the EXTREME pleasure of FINALLY seeing Mariah Carey live in concert on the first LA date of her Angels Advocate Tour at the Gibson Amphitheater at Universal City … and what a spectacular show it was!!


Unlike other big production stage shows, The Angels Advocate Tour is a pared down concert performance where the focus is Mariah‘s singing. She does no dancing and prolly takes 30 steps around the stage all night long … but, the singing, yeah she kills it live on stage … well, for the most part. After the jump, check out a few photos from the show last night and check out a fan-recorded video of her performance of Touch My BodyMore »
