Taylor Swift & Friends Slay LA At The Staples Center

Last night, at long last, I finally got to see Taylor Swift in concert and now I can honestly say that I understand what all of the hubbub is about. Taylor has set a new record for the most sold out nights at the Staples Center here in LA at one time (5 days) and last night was her 4th of 5 sold out performances. I luckily managed to procure a ticket for the show and was able to partake in the celebration with a bunch of very excited Los Angelinos. The show as over the top and really fun, I was very happy to be in attendance. More »

Burger King Proposes A Joint Burger Venture With McDonald’s, McDonald’s Says Nah

Fast food giant Burger King took out a full page ad in The New York Times and the Chicago Tribune today in an effort to solicit fast food GOD McDonald’s with a proposal that the two companies join forces to create a joint burger called the McWhopper in honor of Peace One Day. In what would absolutely constitute a major advertising coup for Burger King, the proposal suggests that the two companies collaborate on a special burger that would bring the fast food rivals together in “peace” … and commerce. Burger King‘s thirst for this proposal is so huge that they even offered up mock packaging for the McWhopper. Unfortunately for BK, McDonald’s isn’t at all interested in this proposal. The CEO of McD’s posted a response to BK on their official Facebook profile that basically says Thaaaaaaanks … but no thanks, don’t bother us publicly in this manner, go away, bye. Click below to see this back and forth exchange between these two fast food companies and learn more about the McWhopper — which will never come to be. More »

Carly Rae Jepsen Celebrates ‘E•MO•TION’ At The Troubadour In West Hollywood

Last night I made my way to The Troubadour in West Hollywood for an intimate concert performance by Carly Rae Jepsen in celebration of the release of her new album E•MO•TION. I am so impressed by her new album, I can’t even tell you. E•MO•TION is such a perfect pop album, I can’t even stand it.
