Movie Review: ‘Blue Valentine’

The TV Guide

At LONG last, David and I got to see the amazing new film Blue Valentine, which stars Michelle Williams and Ryan Gosling, last night here in LA and I am happy to report that the movie was WELL worth the wait. David and I met up with our BFFs Darion and Emma at the ArcLight in Hollywood, CA for the showing … and hands down, we all loved it entirely. More »

Put The Needle On It

The TV Guide

Last night David and I did a bit of shopping together to put the finishing touches on my Xmas gift from him. This year, I became the very HAPPY recipient of a portable turntable record player! I’ve never been a big vinyl fan (primarily because my lazy ass prefers the ease of use that comes from CDs/MP3s) but I have been a collector of record albums for years. This year I decided I wanted a small record player and David made my Xmas wish come true. More »

My Top Albums Of 2010

The TV Guide

It is that time of the year when I compile my list of favorite albums of the year … and what a diverse year of music it was. To be honest, I really wasn’t wowed by the music of 2010 until pretty late in the year. Some albums snuck up on me as one of the year’s faves, others surprised me entirely … and, of course, some were surefire loves as soon as they were released. Here is my list of the 10 Best Albums of 2010. More »

Movie Review: ‘All Good Things’

The TV Guide

Last night was another quiet movie night for David and me, which to be honest, was the perfect way to spend an uneventful Monday night. A few weeks ago, we got to see some photos of Ryan Gosling in the just-released film All Good Things and based on those photos (of Ryan in a pair of wet and soggy tighty whitey undies) I was complete sold on seeing the movie. Last night, David and I did watch All Good Things and I am happy to report that we loved it. More »

Movie Review: ‘Easy A’

The TV Guide

Last night David and I FINALLY got to see the Emma Stone film Easy A, which came out in September, on On Demand. I had been really looking forward to seeing the film in theaters when it was released but, somehow, I never got around to seeing it … then it was gone from theaters and I had to wait for its release on DVD/On Demand. But last night I finally got to see why everyone seems to love the film so much. More »

Movie Review: ‘Rare Exports’

The TV Guide

The rain returned last night but, thankfully, it wasn’t a torrential downpour … and it didn’t last very long. After a nice quiet day together, David and I decided to take in a movie to end our lovely Xmas Day. A couple of months ago we saw a trailer for a Finnish film called Rare Exports that looked interesting. It tells the tale of the discovery of an evil, child-killing Santa Claus … which seemed like the perfect Xmas Day film. More »

Home For The Holidays

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a gloriously warm, sunny and RAINFREE day here in LA and David and I made the most of it. Since this is the first year we are spending Xmas together (as opposed to with our families on opposite ends of the country), we decided to keep things really quiet for just the two of us. We started out the day with an Xmas Eve brunch of Aussie Cheese Fries from Outback Steakhouse … and the day just got better from there. More »

A Bloody Good Time At The Grove

The TV Guide

David and I made the brave decision to make our way to The Grove last night so that we could walk around the outdoor shopping center to take in the Xmas decorations, pick up a few last minute things and pretty much just hang out. Fortunately for us, the massive crowds weren’t an issue nor was the, thankfully, dry weather. No, when I was bleeding all over the floor at World Market not 10 minutes into our arrival, I knew it was going to be a special night. More »

Xmas Prep

The TV Guide

I am happy to report that for the first time ever, David and I will be spending Xmas together. Yes, in the almost 5 years that we have been together, we have never been able to spend Xmas together because one or both of us jetted off across the country to be with our parents. Thru a series of circumstances, David decided to stay here in LA with me … and we are very much looking forward to spending our first Xmas together. More »

Movie Review: ‘The King’s Speech’

The TV Guide

Despite the still falling rain here in SoCal, David and I braved the wetness to get out of the house for a bit to get some fresh air and to see a movie. We decided to take a chance on one of the heavily-hyped Oscar movies of the new awards season and decided to see The King’s Speech (thus far nominated for multiple Golden Globe and Screen Actor’s Guild Awards) starring Colin Firth, Geoffrey Rush and Helena Bonham Carter. I am pleased to inform y’all that the Oscar hype is worth it … The King’s Speech is a stunningly fantastic film. More »
