Reppin’ The D In The A

Last night Sarah, Mark, Adriana and I got all dolled up in our Detroit Tigers gear and made our way down to Anaheim, CA to root for the Tigers against the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim. Before we got down to the business of baseball, we grabbed a fun dinner in Downtown Disney beforehand. We just couldn’t fit in a visit to Disneyland during Sarah and Mark’s visit (which is why I missed running into Britney Spears at Disneyland yesterday) so I figured dinner in Downtown Disney was a nice consolation prize. We had a blast at the game, even if we didn’t win (boo). Click below to see some of our fun photos. More »

Tori Amos By The Bay

Last night my friend Sarah and I made our way down to San Diego, CA to see our second of four Tori Amos concerts on her current Unrepentant Geraldines Tour and SURPRISE! We had the Best Time Ever … at the show. Our trip got off to a bummer start when Adriana had to drop out of taking the trip with us because of car troubles. Then we dealt with ONLY the worst traffic ever both on the way down and on the way home … but in between all of that drama, we enjoyed one of the best Tori Amos shows ever. Tori played for Sarah and me our favorite song together, Tear In Your Hand. The whole setlist was crafted to make every single person in the audience cry their eyes out so … yeah, it was the best.

An Evening With Tori Amos & Tash

Sarah and Mark’s first full day here in LA was a great one! The two of them met up with Adriana for a day at the beach and then we all convened at my place to get ready for a fun night ahead. We enjoyed a great dinner at Mess Hall in Los Feliz before Sarah and I made our way to the Greek Theater to see Tori Amos in concert. Aide and Mark spent the evening at the Griffith Observatory. Afterward, we all met up at the Red Lion Tavern in Silverlake for a nightcap … and then we went across the street to the Cha Cha Lounge for a photobooth shoot. We like fun! More »

They’re Heeeeere

Yay! My BFFs Sarah and Mark arrived here in SoCal safe and sound last night, getting underway a week of fun ahead. Because they had to work a full day yesterday, they were not able to fly out until 8pm ET … which meant that they arrived at 10pm PT. Because I keep my home painfully free of anything even remotely resembling nutritious (that is, while I am out of running training — which I need to start up again very soon, not to digress too much) we had to stop off to pick up provisions on our way home. Sarah and I have a LONG history of hours spent at Target so, naturally, that’s where we went. We dropped off food and luggage at my place and then went out for a late bite to eat. We enjoyed a very nice first night together. More »

Spic And Span

I’m very excited to share that my BFFs Sarah and Mark are arriving here in LA from Detroit later tonight for a week of fun here in SoCal. Every time Tori Amos goes on tour, Sarah and I make plans to see her in concert as much as possible. This week we will be seeing her in LA and in San Diego and then next month, I fly back home to Michigan to see her in Detroit and in Toronto, Ontario. Because Sarah and Mark will be staying with me this week, I had to get the West Coast Den of SlackTM cleaned up for their stay and, well, I had to call in a professional to get the job done for me.

Officially Official

Sooooo, yeah, yesterday was pretty sweet. A little over 2 months since I first met them and a little over a month after I officially became a prospect, I was officially voted into the Sons of Anakin Social Club at Disneyland yesterday. Trust me, I understand how this may be a bit confusing out of context for some of you but I can assure it, it was a very good thing. As I’ve mentioned before, I decided to join one of the many social clubs at Disneyland in an effort to make new friends and share a common/crazy love of all things Disney AND Star Wars and yesterday, I was officially “patched in” to the club. Needless to say, I had a great time yesterday becoming a new member of this social club family … but it’s only the start of more fun to come. More »

Movie Review: ‘Snowpiercer’

Yesterday was a very fun day in that I got to spend most of it with my friends Tamar and Caleb. Tam took us to an afternoon birthday pool party in the hills, which was great, and then we made our way back down to earth for a late showing of the indie film Snowpiercer. We’ve been hearing great things about the movie for a few weeks now so we decided to see what all the fuss was about. Having seen the movie myself, I’ve determined that folks either really love Snowpiercer or they really don’t. Tam and Caleb were in the former category, I find myself in the latter. More »

I Choose To Snooze

So, yeah, after quite a few nights out on the town, I decided to stay in an chill like a mofo last night. I guess in the back of my mind I considered going out for a movie or something but I ended up reading magazines on my iPad on the couch and I was already dozing by 8:30 so .. yeah … that pretty must set the tone for the rest of my night here at home. And it was glorious. More »

Celebrating Disneyland’s 59th Anniversary

Yesterday my BFF Ollie and I made our way down to Anaheim, CA to celebrate the 59th anniversary of the Disneyland Resort and we had a smashing time. I know it may sound like an impossibility that I can have so much fun at Disneyland when I go there so much but it’s true, I don’t know how to explain it. Ollie hadn’t been to Disneyland in over a year so it was fun to run around the park and do our fave stuff together. Despite the frequency with which I go to the park, each visit is unique and different. Yesterday was no exception :D More »

Movie Review: ‘Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes’ In 4DX

Last night my friend Josh and I made our way to the Regal Cinemas at LA Live in DTLA to see a showing of Dawn of the Planet of the Apes in 4DX. This review of the movie will be broken into two parts … the Dawn of the Planet of the Apes part and the 4DX part. 4DX, for those of you who aren’t aware, is the next generation in the movie-going experience. In a 4DX theater, the room — the seats — adapt to the action that takes place in the movie to make you feel as if you were part of the action. It was a crazy fun experience, let me tell you right off the bat but I am also very happy to relay that Dawn was a superb movie even without all the bells and whistles from the 4DX experience.
