Q & A-mazing Fun

The TV Guide

Last night night David and I were invited to help celebrate our dear Mariqueen’s birthday at ChoSun Galbee Korean BBQ last night and we had an absolute blast celebrating with all of her family and friends. The party was a surprise so it was pretty much mum’s the word until the big surprise went down. I think we managed to surprise her pretty successfully … the look on her face when she walked into the room full of people was just perfection! More »

Drinks For 2

The TV Guide

Yesterday was a nice and very quiet day for David and me. I spent most of my late afternoon/evening reading and David spent his running around taking care of errands. We did leave the house for a bit last night to get a couple drinks and just hang out and ended up at one of our fave spots, The Hudson. Unfortunately, we were hoping for a quiet Monday night out … but we ended up being smack dab in the middle of a raucous crowd watching the NCAA Men’s Basketball Final. More »

Movie Review: ‘Source Code’

The TV Guide

After our fun-filled day by the beach, Darion, his mom, David and I made our way to the AMC Theater at Century City to see Source Code. Now, I’ve had mixed feelings about the film from the very first time I saw the trailer a few months ago. On the one hand, the trailer didn’t make the film look all that good … on other hand, well, Jake Gyllenhaal is in it so …. you can see how I was torn. When I learned that Duncan Jones (David Bowie‘s son) directed it, I was sold. Overall, I liked Source Code very much … tho, for me, the ending left much to be desired. More »

A Perfect Day In LA

The TV Guide

David and I got to spend the entire day hanging out with Darion and his mom Janai after spending the night before celebrating her birthday with all of Darion’s friends. As much fun as we had Saturday night, I much preferred the one-on-one time we got to spend with Mama Lowenstein yesterday. We met up in Santa Monica, CA for a late brunch and then did some playing on the Santa Monica Pier before calling it a day. We had a blast. More »

Ho-Down At The OK Corral

The TV Guide

Yesterday afternoon David and I got to hang out with our dear friends Emma and Josh for lunch and arts & crafts … for real. We met up with the dynamic duo at Fred Segal for late lunch and then came back to our place to paint figurines that Josh picked out for us. Afterward, we made our way to The Abbey to celebrate Daron’s mom’s birthday with an impromptu costume fete. To say we had the best day ever would be an EXTREME understatement. Check out the fun photos below. More »

Say Cheese!

The TV Guide

When David and I were in Berlin a few weeks ago I was THRILLED to discover that the city was full of those old-timey photobooth machines all over town and took every opportunity to take photos with David thruout our trip. Like Polaroids, I’ve been a HUGE fan of photobooth photos for years. I dug out my box of photobooth photos to put my new ones away and I was reminded of all the fun strips I’ve collected with friends (and exes) over the years. More »

Flashback To Berlin

The TV Guide

Last night David and I were feeling a little “homesick” for Berlin so we decided to make our way out to Silverlake, CA so that we could dine and drink at the Red Lion Tavern. The Red Lion is an authentic German “Gasthaus” & Beer Garden that has great eats, great beers and really great atmosphere. I’ve been dying for a Diesel drink for weeks now (Diesel = Beer & Coke) so I indulged last night. The food was also fab. We had a blast. More »

The Playing’s The Thing

Earlier this week I gushed a bit about my new Nintendo 3DS video game system and after a few days of playing with the amazing device, I kinda hafta gush some more. I continue to be impressed by how much fun the dang thing is. After my late, late night at the Salem show on Tuesday, I was way too wrecked to do anything really constructive yesterday so all I really did was play with my new pet dog and fired bombs at my friends’ faces. See, the Nintendo 3DS really is a marvelous device! More »

Salem Bring Their Spooky Sound To LA

The TV Guide

Ever since I fell in love with the Michigan band Salem last year (to the point that I named their debut album King Night as my #1 Album of 2010), I’ve been DYING to see the band live on stage. Last night, at long last, Salem finally brought their show to SoCal and my BFF Angie and I got to see them live for the first time. I was thrilled to see that Salem are able to bring the amazingness live in much the same way they do on their album. They put on one Hell of a show … literally. More »

NintendOMG!

The TV Guide

Yesterday I was visited by the postman who delivered a box full of goodness that pretty determined for me how I would be spending my day. Over the weekend, Nintendo released their new handheld gaming device the Nintendo 3DS and while I was excited to finally receive my new toy, I wasn’t fully expecting to be overly impressed. As soon as I turned it on, tho, I learned otherwise. The Nintendo 3DS is truly an effing impressive video gaming system. More »
