Nothing Compares 2 Prince & Mary J. Blige

The TV Guide

Last night was the second to last Prince concert at The Forum in Inglewood, CA as his 21 Nite Stand in Los Angeles concert residency comes to a close. I attended last night’s show with my good friend Josh and an AMAZING friend of his hooked us up with VIP tickets and aftershow passes. As if that wasn’t awesome enough, the Queen of Hip Hop Soul Mary J. Blige opened up for and performed with Prince during last night’s concert. Honestly, all of the Prince shows have been special … but this may be the most special of all. More »

Movie Review: ‘The Hangover Part II’

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, David and I made our way to the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood, CA to catch an early showing of The Hangover Part II. Because I had an important concert to attend last night, I wanted to see the film before the weekend took hold and I missed seeing it altogether. Going into seeing this movie, I honestly wasn’t expecting very much. Everything I heard was that Part II was pretty much exactly like the original film … but set in Bangkok. I have to say, there really wasn’t anything new in the sequel that made it any better … but if you enjoyed The Hangover, chances are you will also enjoy The Hangover Part II. More »

The Beginning Of The End

The TV Guide

Last night I attended my 12th show of Prince‘s 21 Night Stand concert residency here in LA which, I have learned, is coming to an end this weekend. Apparently, the 21 Nite Stand refers to 21 performances … not 21 actual nights of shows. It was revealed yesterday that this weekend’s shows — Friday, Saturday and Sunday — will be the final shows … so that made last night’s performance a bit more special. More »

In The Nicks Of Time

The TV Guide

Last night I had the great honor of FINALLY seeing one of rock’s most amazing female musicians live in concert and the only think I could keep thinking throughout the entire show was … what the Hell took me so long to see Stevie Nicks live in concert?! If you can believe it, I managed to score a front row center balcony seat yesterday morning, the day of the concert. I’ve always wanted to see Stevie live but for various reasons, I never actually did. Last night Stevie performed an album release party on her 63rd birthday … and put on a show that I will never forget. More »

Theater Review: ‘God Of Carnage’

The TV Guide

After missing the show on Broadway, David and I were very excited to learn that the Tony Award-winning play God of Carnage was being performed here in LA with the original Broadway cast — Marcia Gay Harden, Hope Davis, James Gandolfini and Jeff Daniels. We waited for a performance where we could get really good tickets so that is why we waited until the show nearly ends its run to see it. The show ends performances here in LA this weekend … but we managed to get really good seats for our show. In short, we both loved God of Carnage very much … and we were very surprised at how the drama unfolded on stage ;) More »

Prince Turns The House Of Blues Into The ‘House Of Funk’

The TV Guide

So … I had a very long night/morning today … and am alive and functioning to tell the tale. As I mentioned yesterday, last night David and I attended the 8pm performance of the stage play God of Carnage and then I attended a 2AM concert performance by Prince in the intimate Foundation Room at the House of Blues in West Hollywood, CA. I’ll post my review of God of Carnage shortly but the Prince show, man, what an incredible night. More »

‘God Of Carnage’ / Prince Of Funk

The TV Guide

David and I made it home from Las Vegas, NV last evening with enough time to unwind and relax a bit for the rest of the night. Altho our weekend was fun and relaxing, we didn’t want to go all out last night because we have a big night tonight. We are finally seeing the Broadway hit play God of Carnage here in LA and then later on tonight (well, early tomorrow morning to be exact) I am seeing Prince perform a very intimate concert for 100 people at the House of Blues. Oh yes, it’s going to be a very long night indeed. More »

I Love A Really Good ‘Cosmo’

The TV Guide

Yesterday was David’s and my last and sole full day here in Las Vegas and I have to tell you … we had a blast. We spent part of our afternoon getting to know The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, our temporary home away from home, checking out all of the amazing shopping, the cool bars and their 3 pools. We spent our evening dining at the ABSOLUTELY delicious Comme Ça restaurant here in the hotel. Comme Ça is one of our fave LA restaurants so we knew we were in for a treat last night … but we were NOT prepared for the absolutely TO DIE FOR sumptuous meal we enjoyed last night. More »

Vegas, Baby!

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon, David and I made our way to Las Vegas, NV for a couple of days primarily to see Kylie Minogue end her Aphrodite Live 2011 North American tour at the Colosseum inside Caesar’s Palace Hotel and Casino last night. We are staying at the absolutely FABULOUS Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas Hotel and Casino and have been having the time of our lives. I”m not a big LV fan, but our accommodations have more than made up for my previous preconceived notions about Sin City. More »

A Rapturous Birthday Celebration

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a very fun-filled day that was supposed to be the end of the world but ended up being just a really awesome Saturday. To get things started, David and I were invited to our friends Tamar and Rob’s house for a Judgment Day BBQ and then last night we made our way to Pali House for Darion’s 30th birthday party. Today, I’m nursing a hangover so, yeah, it was a pretty sweet day. More »
