Another Convert

Last night I met up with my friend David aka Ginger for a dinner hang at Outback after a few weeks of talking about hanging out. Ginger and I became friends last year when I started hanging out with social clubs at Disneyland (he’s in Mickey’s Empire) and it was discovered that I moved very close to where he lives when I moved to my new place last month. We’ve been talking about getting together to hang out outside of Dland and last night we finally got it together. The poor guy had never had Aussie Chayze Froys at Outback Steakhouse and I felt it was my duty to right the wrong. More »

Sun’s Out, Fun’s Out

Yesterday was my usual Sunday Funday with my Sons of Anakin friends at Disneyland BUT with a bit of a twist. Before we went to the park, I met up with Jesse, Jessika and Jolie for lunch at our fave Korean BBQ spot and we ate our faces off. From there, we hung out a bit before we finally rolled into the park to meet up with our friends. By the time we arrived, the temperature was much cooler, we were well fed and ready for fun. I’m not sure that it’s the routine that we will take up from here on out but it was a nice change of pace, I can assure you.


The lunch, shopping, hanging out thing before Disneyland was a nice change of pace but it’s not something we can really do on a regular basis. At one point, we ate so much we almost decided to just go nap somewhere, rather than play in Disneyland with our friends. Having access to an affordable all-you-can eat Korean BBQ joint can be dangerous. It’s something we really have to save for special occasions, maybe once a month or so. Once we got to Disneyland, we went about the biz of having our normal fun so all turned out well. Next weekend will be bonkers because it’s the Disneyland Half Marathon weekend. I’ll be heading down to Anaheim on Thursday and will be staying until Sunday to run races. It should be fun … I hope. I’m so painfully out of running practice, I’m afraid I might crash and burn … so keep a good thought, please. It’s Monday and a new week. September starts tomorrow and … damn, where has the year gone?

Old Friends

For the most part, I was able to stay in and get shizz done in my new place. I did my first load of laundry in the washer & dryer IN my apartment (yay) and I managed to get more things put away rather than piled up in my extra bedroom. I took care of some biz at the Apple Store around 5 and ran into my dear friend Tony at the mall — so we hung out for an hour or so. Then I drove down to Anaheim to meet up and hang with some friends for an impromptu Disneyland date. All and all, it was very productive day. More »

OH, Hey . . . Nonny Nonny

Last night Adriana invited me to see Shakespeare in the park with a group of her friends and even tho I decided to “take it easy” this weekend, I decided that I couldn’t pass up a chance to see a Shakespeare play in Griffith Park. FOR YEARS I’ve been trying to see a show at Griffith and, for whatever reason, I just haven’t been able to get my shizz together to see a play. Last night, finally, I got to see what I’ve been missing. The Independent Shakespeare Company staged productions of Romeo & Juliet and Much Ado About Nothing this summer and last night, we saw Much Ado. Now, all y’all know how much I love Much Ado (considering I am featured in the Much Ado film by Joss Whedon) so I’m sure you can imagine how fun last night was for me. The production was really great, the actors fantastic and the company was perfect. I had a great night. More »

‘East Side Story’

Last night I met up with my BFF Adriana for a night of culture and merriment. Our friend Willia performed in a dance recital last night so we decided to make an evening out of it. Aide and I met for dinner at Knuckle & Claw in Silverlake for lobster rolls (that were out of this world amazing, OMG) before we made our way over to The Sweat Spot for Willia’s dance recital. I was expected to be entertained by Willia’s performance but I was not expecting to be blown away by the other superfun performances that we got to enjoy last night. More »

Jenny Lewis Ends Her ‘Voyager’ Tour In Santa Ana, CA

Last night my friend Austin and I took a road trip down to Santa Ana, CA to see Jenny Lewis in concert at The Observatory (which has to be my fave concert venue in Orange County). Jenny chose The Observatory as the venue where she ended her Voyager Tour, so the night was a special one for everyone in attendance. I’ve seen Jenny in concert a few times over the past year, both as an opening act for Ryan Adams and during the first leg of The Voyager Tour earlier this year. Getting to see her, one more time, before she goes off to record a new record was a lot of fun, particularly because I got to share the experience with a friend who appreciates music and concerts as much as I do.

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 »

FYF Fest, Day 2

Yesterday was day 2 of the FYF Fest here in LA and I had another great day of live music with about 30K Los Angelinos at the LA Coliseum park. Before I made my way to the fest, I met up with Eileen for a late brunch hang — which was fun — and then I was off to meet up with some peeps at FYF. As much as I enjoyed myself at the festival on Saturday, I was really excited for day 2 yesterday because Morrissey was the headline performer. Before Moz, I got to see really great sets by Spiritualized, Mac DeMarco, HEALTH, Death Grips and FKA twigs. Each performance was really great so I’d be hard-pressed to pick the best one … but I will say that I enjoyed everyone so much that it would be unnecessary to pick a fave … which was probably Morrissey for me :D More »

FYF Fest, Day 1

Yesterday was day 1 of the 2015 FYF Festival here in LA and for the first time in it’s 12 year existence, I decided to attend the 2-day music fest. I’m very clear about how much I hate going to music festivals — for a host of reasons — so you know that it has to be a damn fine festival to get my attention. The line-up of the FYF Fest this year was just too good for me to pass it up. Coupled with the fact that the festival takes place in LA (no travel) and is easily accessible by public transportation (eg. LA’s surprisingly convenient subway system, in particular), I decided to give it a go. I had such a great time at the festival yesterday that I cannot WAIT to get back down to the LA Coliseum park for day 2 later today. BUT before I can enjoy today’s fun, let me tell you about the fun I had yesterday. More »

A Night With Mozzer

Last night, for night 3 of my 7 nights of concerts this week, I made my way down to San Diego, CA to see the amazing Morrissey in concert. Altho I will be seeing him at the FYF Festival here in LA this weekend, I knew that I couldn’t pass up the chance to see Mozzer live in concert all on his own at a semi-local show. Originally, Morrissey was only scheduled to play SD on the night of August 20 — which I couldn’t make because I had tickets to see Shania Twain in concert here in LA (on night 2 of my 7 nights of concerts) — so I was elated when he added a second concert for the 22nd. The show, I can assure you, was so much fun. Moz has changed up his setlist a bit and has added new elements to his live performance which makes this particular show a must-see. I’m SO glad I was able to get down to San Diego to see the man himself in action. More »
