Oh, Sheela

Yesterday was a really nice, really relaxing day for me. I met up with my friend Sheela for a fab brunch at Mauro’s Cafe inside Fred Segal in West Hollywood and then spent the rest of the day maxin’ and relaxin’ at home. I ventured out for a bit of a drive last night and found myself in the vicinity of the Happiest Place on Earth. I decided to pay a little visit to Disneyland and Disney California Adventure for a snack and ended up meeting up with some folks for a fun hang for the rest of the night. Ahh, life is grand in SoCal, let me tell you. More »

Magnificent

Yesterday was a great day for me in sunny LA because I got to spend it in the close company of dear friends AND new friends. Because Darion’s mom Janai flew into town for his surprise birthday party Friday night, she was available for a quick brunch yesterday morning and I jumped at the chance to spend more time with her before she had to fly back home. I met up with Darion, Omar and Janai and Cecconi’s in West Hollywood for a great brunch hang session. After I ran a few errands, I spent a lovely day on the couch just relaxing like a mofo before I met up with Adriana and her friend Vanessa and Brian and his beautiful fiancée Jessie last night. They wanted to see Maleficent, I was dying to see it again and so … our night was made. More »

Pink Is The New Blog Turns 10 Years Old Today

Hey, guess what! Pink is the new Blog is 10 years old today. It’s kinda hard for me to believe that it’s been a decade since I “officially” launched PITNB but … ’tis true. I have been blogging longer than PITNB‘s 10 years (I believe I started my first blog back in 2012 but my site on easyjournal.com was lost years ago when the site shut down) but it was back on June 1, 2004 that I decided to focus my random blogging into something more uniform, more focused … more pink. I’ve been thinking for the past couple of months about how to mark the occasion today and in the end, I decided to just write a simple blogpost about it. Back when I started blogging, there weren’t very many blogs on the Interwebs. I didn’t know what the Hell I was doing, I just wrote stuff and shared it online with whoever was out there who cared enough to bother. Over the years, I’ve been lucky enough to reach quite a lot of people and the course of my life was changed forever. Let’s go back 10 years to June of 2004 and remember a bit the way things were in the blogosphereTM a decade ago this month. More »

Lana Del SLAY

Last night I made my way out to the Shrine Auditorium here in LA to see the final date of Lana Del Rey‘s concert tour. Altho I really hate seeing shows at the Shrine due to its usually terrible security, horrible sight lines and generally shabby appearance, I really wanted to see LDR on this tour. I’m happy to relay that Lana put on a great show, even if the venue left much to be desired. After the show, I had to race back to Hollywood to attend a SUPERHERO surprise party for Darion! His friends worked really hard to pull off this surprise party so I had to make it out and celebrate Darion in the most superhero-iest way possible. More »

Darion, Sheela, Tanya & Kristin

Last night I got to meet up with Darion for a belated birthday dinner before I made my way to the Bootleg Bar to see Tanya Donelly and Throwing Muses in concert. At the show, I ran into my friend Sheela who goes to, like, 90% of the shows that I go to but we never realize it until afterward. This time we got to hang out properly and had the best time. Dinner with Darion was great. The show was great. My Thursday night was really freaking great. More »

Movie Review: ‘Maleficent’

SO … last night, I was lucky enough to attend an early screening of Maleficent here in LA and I have to tell you right off the bat that I loved the movie entirely. I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of this movie ever since we first heard that Angelina Jolie would be starring as the titular character way back in 2010. In June of 2012, we got our first look at Angelina in costume as Maleficent on the set of the film and since then, we’ve gotten pretty regular updates on the film’s progress. The movie opens in theaters here in the US tomorrow and I am very happy to tell you exactly why I loved this movie and why I think you will love it as well. More »

Today is a special day because it is the day that the world celebrates the birth of my BFF Darion!

My New Home

So … I ended up spending another evening/night at Disneyland yesterday after I was invited to hang with my friend Ryh-Ming and her friend Dolly … because clearly I have a problem. It’s true that I like to go to Disney a few times a year but this year, well, I seem to be spending a lot more time at the Happiest Place on Earth than ever. Counting the 24 day/night at Disney on Friday/Saturday, I managed to spend time in Disneyland and Disney California Adventure on Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday … and honestly, I had a great time on each visit.

Two Much Fun

My plan was to spend my Sunday relaxing on the couch, doing a bunch of nothing by day so that I could rest up before going to a Morrissey danceparty last night. I ended up getting cajoled into going back to Disneyland for the second time in 3 days and, yes, I had a blast. I randomly ran into an old friend from NYC who I hadn’t seen in years and we ended up hanging out all afternoon, night. Even tho I was totally wiped out, I still made my way to the Echoplex to dance the rest of the night away to music by Morrissey and The Smiths. Fun! More »

Three’s Company

I spent a fairly quiet night with my homettes Tamar and Ollie last night that was comprised of food, drink and great conversation. Tamar and I had planned on going to the movies but dinner with Ollie proved to be too much fun for us to make our movie date. We all met up at Tamar’s and then made our way to Malo for dinner. Our conversation covered a wide range of topics of varying import. Basically, we spent our night yakking away over any and everything and we ended up having the best night ever. More »
