After running the Disneyland Half Marathon the morning after running the Awesome 80s Run! 10K, you’d think I’d be tired … and you’d be right! I slept most of yesterday afternoon because I knew I wanted to rest up so that I could DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY at the Echo in Echo Park, CA. Jose Maldondo hosted the Part Time Punks party last night that featured music from Morrissey and The Smiths … and, well, I simply couldn’t miss it now, could I? More »

So … the race that started it all … came and went so fast! Earlier this year, I decided that I wanted to run a half marathon and I selected the Disneyland Half Marathon to be my race. I started training on March 1 and I couldn’t even run a mile … but I stuck with it … ran my first 5K race in April, my first 10K race in June and then just kept training on longer runs leading up to yesterday’s BIG race. I loved everything about the experience, honestly. All of my hard work lead up to that starting line and … off I went. More »
OMG … OK … I finally have a minute to breathe again!! My weekend was a really bizzy one and, as I’m sure you noticed, I haven’t been able to blog at all due to the fact that I’ve been RUNNING MY BUNS OFF all over Southern California. I ran back to back races on Saturday and Sunday, a 10K and a Half Marathon. Surprisingly, I did pretty well in both races AND I felt awesome both during and after both races. I felt so good yesterday that I went dancing last night … after my 13.1 mile race early in the morning. Crazy, I know. First up, I ran the Awesome 80s Run! 10K at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, CA and as you can see from the photos below, it was a totally tubular experience. More »

Earlier this summer (when she was on the cover of, like every single Vogue magazine) we got our first look at Marion Cotillard‘s forthcoming picture Rust And Bone. The film also stars Belgian actor Matthias Schoenaerts (shouts-out to PITNBR Juneh!) and that first trailer had me, already, head-over-heels. The film premiered at the Cannes Film Festival and received crazy rave reviews, and the studio has just released a brand new U.K. trailer. On Indiewire someone wrote in the comments, ‘Wow, the trailer gave me shivers…‘ and I was like okay, was it seriously that good? About 35 seconds in the goosebumps came upon me with a vengeance. It’s good.
Rust And Bone hits theatres November 16. The original trailer, with a bit more dialogue is inside.
We are mere DAYS away from the season two premiere of The X Factor and the DEBUT of Britney Spears as X Factor judge … and to promote this exciting event, our dear Britney will be making a few in person appearances to promote the show. Next week, Britney will appear on The Ellen DeGenres Show to talk X Factor (and more?) and this week she shares a photo she took with Ellen from one of her previous appearances on the show. Click below to see the photo in full and get a peek of the fun that these two like to share. More »
The ladies over at Fashionista recently shared some really exciting news. This week, Sydney will begin preparation for its first ever Australian Indigenous Fashion Week. The new organization will showcase work from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island designers. I don’t know a lot about the Australian indigenous culture, but I do know that the people have been marginalized and discriminated against for many years. Any event that highlights their contribution to the art world and popular culture sounds like a great idea to me! Deets inside. And peep the gallery pics from Australian Fashion Week featuring designs by Roopa Pemmaraju. Roopa is an Aussie label that features original print designs by renowned Indigenous Australian artists.
A couple of weeks ago we learned that Canadian rocker and Nickelback frontman Chad Kroeger got himself engaged to be married to Canadian popstar Avril Lavigne, seemingly out of nowhere. At the time that news of this engagement was revealed, there were a lot of cringing looks of chagrin all over the place … even, apparently, from Kroeger himself. In a new interview, Chad admits that he was embarrassed to tell his mother of his engagement to Avril Lavigne … a feeling that I think MANY of us can understand. Yikes! More »
PITNBRS, I think I’ve just found a cure for the Mondays. Seriously! Ten minutes ago, I’d never heard the name ‘Petite Meller,’ and now, I’m patiently awaiting a response to my Facebook Friend Request, lol. Who is this singer?! And why is her new track, NYC Time, currently on repeat? The singer (who apparently has a MA in Philosophy) got some help from Napoleon Habeica for this video– this guy invented the American Apparel marketing campaigns, and you can totally see the influence in the visuals. I love it!Oh, and A.T. Mann co-directed. I also love that some anonymous man of color is carrying her to NYC. Where she is then joined by a group of anonymous more um men of color… and later hangs out with cops… also men of color. LMAO. I dunno, I might hate that. Haven’t decided yet. But, on the whole, I def love this video, and the song is absolutely my new jam. Checkie out!

So, everyone who saw Argo at the Telluride Film Festival is kind of losing it. Apparently Ben Affleck‘s feature film is really resonating with audiences, and critics are starting to see Oscars on the horizon. This is the third feature film from Ben Affleck (who also stars in the movie) and after the critical success of Gone Baby Gone and The Town, I’m thinking we can expect good things. I saw the trailer a while back and I’m so glad the film is already making waves; it looks crazy good! Peep the trailer and tell me if (based on 2 minutes of footage, lol) you can see the Oscar coming for this political thriller/Hollywood tale.
