I Watched The ‘Daredevil’ Movie Last Night And I Actually Enjoyed It

After the first trailer for the Netflix original series Daredevil was released yesterday, I was reminded of the much-maligned 2003 Daredevil movie that starred Ben Affleck, Jennifer Garner and Colin Farrell. Well before superhero movies were the biggest thing in the world, movies like Daredevil were trying to make superhero movies cool again after the string of horrid Batman movies of the late ’90s almost killed the genre. I remember seeing the movie in the theater when it was released back in 2003 and seem to remember liking it. But, because most people nowadays talk about how terrible the movie was, I wanted to go back and re-watch it again. And, just as I remember, I enjoyed Ben Affleck‘s Daredevil movie just as I did 12 years ago. More »

A Night With Neil & The Joker

One of my fave authors, Neil Gaiman, released his third collection of short stories yesterday titled Trigger Warning so I decided to reserve my night so that I could start reading the book. I absolutely LOVE Gaiman‘s novels but his short story collections (Smoke & Mirrors and Fragile Things) are among my fave books of all time. It’s a treat to be able to read little bits of Neil Gaiman over time rather than gorging on one big story. I read some of Neil last night and then watched a bit of TV. Last night’s episode of The Flash got me in the mood to read some comic books and, well, my night was a veritable geekapalooza. More »

PPL MVR On A School Night

Yesterday was a mostly quiet day. My place is pretty much a disaster area after my busy weekend. I decided it would be a good idea to put things away, do a bit of laundry and tidy up a bit rather than jump over heaps of stuff I had scattered around my apartment. I deffo like to keep my place lived in but when the piles of stuff become mounds I have to leap over, it’s time to clean. Last night, my good friend Stacey invited me to Bardot in Hollywood to see PPL MVR perform in concert again. We had so much fun together at Overpass last week that I wanted to come out and see the band play again. It was a late show but I managed to get out, have fun and be home at a reasonably reasonable hour. More »

Run Surf City

Early yesterday morning, I made my way down to Huntington Beach, CA to run my third Surf City Half Marathon in as many years and I’m happy to relay that it was one of my better half marathon runs. The Surf City race is one of my fave races of the year because nothing beats running along the Pacific Ocean in February in the most beautiful weather you will ever experience. After the race, I made my home for a bit of rest before I made my way to Caleb and Ollie’s place for their annual Super Bowl party. After that, Tamar and I enjoyed a lovely sushi dinner at Sugarfish and that, my friends, was the wrap on a really great Sunday. More »

Happy Birthday, Andreas

Because of my very busy weekend, I will not be able to head down to Anaheim for Sunday Funday at Disneyland this weekend … but because today is my friend Andreas‘s birthday, I knew I had to get down to the park last night to help him celebrate his birthday weekend. I met up with Elena in Disneyland before Andreas arrived and then the 3 of us hung out for a bit and then toasted his birthday. It may have been an intimate celebration but it was really fun nonetheless. More »

The Late Show

Yesterday was a pretty fun, very long day/night/morning for me. I got to spend some time with my friend Josh Rosebrook in the late afternoon and then in the week hours this morning, I met up with my friend Stacey to see the band PPL MVR play a crazy show at the Overpass after hours club (where Stacey and I saw Mereki play a show in December). In between, I had my MIND BLOWN by last night’s insane-o episode of Scandal and, well, it’s a miracle I’m alive an functioning today. More »

Sure, Jan

OMG. I had the dumbest night ever … which was also, kinda, the best night ever. My plans with Josh Rosebrook got postponed to today so I ended up having a quiet night in. I got some reading done, I got some writing done and I got some TV watching done. Then I started effing around on Tumblr and my night was lost to the stupidly funny Brady Bunch meme that has been going around. Honestly, I don’t even know how to explain it … either you get it or you don’t. If you get it, you run the risk of laughing your ass off at the stupid thing every time you see it and, well, that’s what I ended up doing with my night. More »

Melrose

Despite the #BlizzardOf2015 that was ravaging the East Coast yesterday, the weather here in LA was sunny and absolutely beautiful. I swear, I’m not trying to rub it in or anything … it’s just that the usually perfect weather here in SoCal makes me so happy that I thank my lucky stars everyday that I get to enjoy living here. I had to run out to take care of some boring tax return stuff so I made my way back to my old neighborhood in West Hollywood to take care of biz. Last night, I randomly met up with Tamar and Caleb for a dinner/catch-up sesh, which rounded out a pretty decent day. More »

My Night With Whitney Houston

I randomly ended up spending my entire night with Whitney Houston last night, totally on accident. I was in Anaheim, CA for the Star Wars Half Marathon Weekend when Lifetime aired their biopic Whitney so I wasn’t able to watch it live when it aired. It was recorded on my DVR but after I got back home from my weekend away, I wasn’t able to get around to watching the movie before I had to fly off to Detroit for most of last week so … my first chance to watch the movie was last night. After I watched the biopic, I watched a bunch of Whitney Houston interviews and then … it was 2 AM. More »

Dad’s Day

Yesterday was my last day in Detroit but, because it was my dad’s birthday, it was the whole reason I flew back to Michigan in the first place. Because my parent’s are getting more advanced in age, I am trying to be home for their birthdays … even tho my dad’s birthday is always in the dead of Michigan winter. They can’t really fly out to see me in sunny LA so I’m happy to make the trip back home. My best friends Sarah and Mark joined in the birthday dinner we had for my dad and a great time was had by all. I did get to spend a bit of time with my friends before I had to make my way back to the airport and back home to LA. More »
