Yesterday morning I boarded a Delta play for a 6 hour flight into Honolulu, HI ahead of this weekend’s big marathon race and here I am, reporting to you from paradise. Some of you may recall that I made this very same trek to O’ahu a year ago to run the Honolulu Marathon which was my first marathon ever. I loved the experience so much that I had to return for a second go. I got into town early enough to hit up the marathon expo to pick up my race bib but I spent much of the rest of the day just chillin’. That’s really the goal for this trip, er except for the hours of running on Sunday, I hope to just relax and do as little as possible in one of the most beautiful places on Earth. More »

OMG 1D IS ON 'SNL' THIS WEEKEND !!!!!!!
Actor Paul Rudd, one of the stars of the new film Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues (as well as one of my FAVE movies of all time, Clueless), is guest hosting this coming weekend’s episode of Saturday Night Live and in the promo videos for the ep embedded above, he does a pretty good job of bringing the LULz. The promo where he freaks out over the fact that boy band One Direction will perform as musical guest has to be my fave because, duh. Check out the video embedded above to watch all of Paul‘s SNL promos and make plans to spend your Saturday night with him and 1D.
"I might, who knows…"
I … uh … um …. ok … so, Britney Spears gave an interview to Extra! TV to promote the launch of her upcoming Las Vegas concert residency Britney: Piece of Me and over the course of her conversation with host Mario Lopez, Britney kinda revealed that she is considering retirement at the completion of her 2 year concert commitment. I’ll give you a minute in case you need to find a defibrillator to restart your stopped heart. Um, yeah. According to Britney, she is planning on having more children and to do so, she is considering the end of her professional career. OMG. It’s hard to tell how serious she is but … the fact that she’s even talking about the possibility of retirement publicly is … upsetting, to say the least. Click below to read exactly what she had to say and then freak out with me, WON’T YOU!?! More »
Mimi Claus Comes to Town
Mariah Carey has become about as synonymous with Xmas as Santa Claus in recent years so it should come as no surprise whatsoever that she was asked — AGAIN (and again) — to perform a short set of holiday songs in Rockefeller Center in NYC, NY as part of NBC‘s annual Christmas in Rockefeller Center television special. Mimi taped her performance (complete with costume change) in Manhattan last night ahead of tonight’s big tree lighting ceremony (which will all be aired on NBC). Click thru the gallery presented here to see photos of Mimi doing the damn thing last night looking as radiant and merrily festive as ever! Now that Mariah has started her traditional annual holiday push, it really IS beginning to look a lot like Xmas.

After a hugely successful debut season on Netflix, the brilliantly engaging political drama series House of Cards will return for its second season on February 14, 2014. As you may recall, House of Cards became the first series ever to be nominated for a major award at the Emmy Awards without having ever aired a single episode on television … in September, it won an Emmys for directing, casting and cinematography. Now that the series is returning for a second season, I’m sure it will make every attempt to surpass the success of the first season. Click the video embed above to watch the just-released teaser trailer for House of Cards season 2 then click below to read a portion of the press released issued by Netflix regarding the return of HoC.

"Happily Whatever After"
Last month we got to see the first trailer for the forthcoming 3rd season of the HBO series Girls and today we get to see the first promo poster released for the new season of the show. As you may know, Girls follows the exploits of a group of twenty-something hipster girls living in Brooklyn, NY and while I found the show pretty entertaining the first season, I wasn’t too crazy with the second season of the show. The trailer we saw last month looked interesting enough for me to tune in when the new season of Girls debuts next month but I’m not sure the poster featured below adds to that interest. Still, for the sake of completion … have a look below and see if the poster successfully works its charm on you. More »

Back in July we first learned that the comic book superhero The Flash would be getting his own TV series on The CW next year but first would be introduced in the current season of the already successful superhero series Arrow. In September we learned that actor Grant Gustin won the role of Barry Allen / The Flash. This week, the character will make his debut on Arrow as a precursor to the launch of his own series next year (as kind of a backdoor pilot episode) and right now, we get to see his first appearance on the show. Click the video embed above to see Gustin‘s Barry Allen make his television debut on this week’s episode of Arrow. Keep in mind, in this first ep he is not yet The Flash … he’s just mild-mannered Barry Allen, new kid on the block. His superpowers are coming tho … this is merely the prelude.

What a difference a day makes. On Saturday, I was back home in Michigan suffering thru 30 degree temperatures … and yesterday, I was out and about here in SoCal enjoying temps in the high 70s. Tamar and her father Richard graciously invited me to go on a hike with them in Griffith Park and I gladly accepted. We spent a couple of hours climbing up to the summit of our trail and then back down to Earth again. It was just what I needed to get my bearings back again. The rest of the day was spent running around taking care of errands and then last night was spent on the couch catching up on some TV. My Sunday was a very nice one, I have to say. More »
How do we love Gabriel Mann AKA Nolan Ross? Let me count the ways. When I first binge-watched season one of Revenge I was all like, ‘Who is this guy and where can I get his caridgans?‘ Nolan is everything on this show. Even when it lulled a bit in season two, Nolan always kept us coming back for more. He gets all the hot guys… and girls… and guys… LOL. And I’m pretty sure it’s because of his impeccable fashion sense. Peep the gallery for just a few of my favorite looks from our favorite revengy guy.
