Last night Disneyland hosted a special event for Annual Passholders called the Royal Celebration and it was, I have to say, one of the funnest nights I’ve ever enjoyed at Disneyland. The entire park was closed so that a select number of Annual Passholders could play in the park and get photos with various Disney characters. For the first time ever, I got to get photos with Beast from Beauty and the Beast and Pocahontas and Meeko from Pocahontas. I also got to dance my ass off with the Wicked Stepsisters Anastasia and Drizella from Cinderella. I got to enjoy the night with my friends Elena and Michael from the Mickey’s Empire social club and truly had the best time ever. More »
AMC introduced a pair of gay characters on The Walking Dead this past Sunday night who showed their love and affection for one another when they shared a kiss on screen. Aaron and his parter Eric are characters introduced in The Walking Dead comic book series years ago so it is really great that after 5 1/2 seasons, the TV series has finally introduced them to the show. But, while many people, like me, were happy to see these gay characters share a kiss on TV, a bunch of homophobic idiots took to Twitter to voice their displeasure. A collection of the more colorful, yet horribly offensive and NSFW Twitter comments are collected below in order to bring attention to the fact that homophobic hatred continues to thrive despite the huge strides our culture has taken toward the progression of equal treatment of all people.

Last night I made my way to the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood for a special screening of Lost in Translation. Lost is absolutely one of my favorite movies of all time and to be able to see it on the big screen again was an opportunity I didn’t want to miss. Last year, when I visited Tokyo, Japan for the first time, I was able to live out my Lost In Translation fantasies (it was that movie that made me fall in love with Tokyo in the first place). Watching the movie again on the big screen took me back to Japan … and that was a really great feeling. More »

Yesterday was a fun, really busy day for me. I spent the early part of my day in Disneyland with my friends and then, after we got dumped on by rain a couple of times, I made my way back to LA so that I could watch the Academy Awards with Emma and Duke while Josh was busy AT the Oscars. The Disney day was fun but far too short. The real reason why yesterday’s trip to Disneyland was so fun was because my Sons of Anakin social club inducted two new members into the family. Not even the rain could put a damper on the day’s festivities. It’s always a great day when someone turns to the Dark Side. More »
Yesterday was a fun day for me because it was my day to spent a lot of time with my new little homie Duke and his parents Emma and Josh. As you know, Duke was born 2 weeks ago today (!!!) and I’m planning on seeing him to celebrate later tonight but I had a free day yesterday so I was able to hang out with him for some of the afternoon, all of the evening and night. We had a great time together … even if he spent most of our time together asleep ;) More »
Last night I met up with a few of my Sons of Anakin friends in DTLA for a night of video game fun at EightyTwo Barcade and, for the most part, we had a great time. I always have fun when I get to hang out with Jessika and Jesse but last night we were joined by Emily and Drew as well. Because I haven’t been to Disneyland in a month, I haven’t seen Emily in forever so it was great to catch up with her last night. EightyTwo is definitely one of my fave bars in DTLA so I had a lot of fun with my friends. More »

Last night I made my way to The Wiltern to see punk/rock/pop/music legend Billy Idol live in concert. I’ve been a fan of Billy‘s since forever … from the early ’80s when he was in his band Generation X and then throughout his solo career reaching into the ’90s. I’ve been hearing really great things about his most recent tour and I knew I had to see him in concert. His two-night stint in LA sold out really quickly so I was lucky to even get a ticket in the first place. I am very happy to say that Billy Idol put on an amazing show, from start to finish, he was really, really great. More »

Last night my friend Edward and I were graciously invited to a season 7 premiere event for RuPaul’s Drag Race at the Mayan theater in downtown LA and we had the time of our lives. With only a couple weeks left to go until the new season of Drag Race premieres on Logo, the promo machine for the show is kicking into high gear. Last night’s event was a way for an invited group of people to see the first episode of season 7 of Drag Race AND to see the contestants each perform lip sync routine. OMG. It was so fun, I can’t even tell you! More »
Last night I made my way to the Arclight Theater in Hollywood to see the new movie Kingsman: The Secret Service because the movie came out last Friday and, generally, if I don’t see a new movie in its first week of release, I don’t see the movie on the big screen. I almost always pack my nights with stuff to do so I really wanted to see Kingsman last night … and even tho Eileen had to bail on our date due to illness, I decided I had to see the movie anyways … and man, am I glad that I did. Kingsman is adapted from a graphic novel of the same name and I have to say, I was beyond impressed with how well the story was brought to life on the big screen. I absolutely loved Kingsman. More »
Last night I went back to the El Capitan for a second helping of the 1955 Disney animated classic Lady and the Tramp, this time with my friend Charlie and her friend Eric. Charlie and Eric kindly invited me to see the movie with them (after she saw that my friend Elena and I saw the movie on Friday night) and I happily went back for more. Any opportunity to spend time with Charlie is something I’m always interested in so it was an easy decision for me. The movie was just as cute as it was on Friday night and I got to spend time with Charlie and Eric so, yeah, my Monday night was great! More »
