Last night I made my way out to the Regal Cinemas Theater at LA Live to see the new disaster movie San Andreas in 4DX and let me tell you … I had an utterly amazingly fun time at the movies. Flicks like San Andreas are what the 4DX movie-going experience was made for. I had previously seen a couple movies in 4DX and my experience was hit and miss (loved Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, hated Interstellar) … but last night, the 4DX experience not only made San Andreas a decent movie, it made it one of my fave movies of the year. I am not kidding when I tell you that this movie is really effing cool when experienced in 4DX. More »

The laundry pile in my room had gotten too unruly for me to ignore anymore so I spent most of my night doing chores around the house, including laundry. My night tonight will be much more exciting because I will be making my way downtown to the Regal Cinemas Theater at LA Live to see the new earthquake disaster movie San Andreas in 4DX. 4DX is, as you may recall, a movie-going experience where the seats move and water, lights and smells are incorporated in the theater to make it feel like you are in the movie. It’s been a while since I saw a movie in 4DX so I figure San Andreas will be the PERFECT movie to experience with all the bells and whistles 4DX has to offer. More »

Yesterday was that hallowed day when all of the goths come out to play at Disneyland and Disney California Adventure for Bat’s Day. To be honest, after the crazy night I had Saturday, I was feeling REALLY lazy Sunday morning and I contemplated not going to Disney … then I remembered it was Bat’s Day and there’s no WAY I was gonna miss Bat’s Day. I dunno why but I absolutely LOVE the sight of all the goths playing in Disneyland. Sure, you see a few here and there all year long but Bat’s Day is really special. I’m glad I went because I had a blast, as usual. More »

Yesterday was a fun filled day for me. I got to spend the afternoon at a houseparty hanging out with friends and then I spent last night at a WeHo party hanging out with more friends. The houseparty was just a really chill event where I got to catch up with folks that I haven’t seen in a while and meet new friends as well. The WeHo party was just totally nuts, totally fun, and really wigged out. Altho I got to celebrate Darion’s birthday on his actual birthday this past Thursday, last night was his big soirée on the town. First we hit up The Abbey, then we hit up Flaming Saddles. Everyone was required to wear a wig and I ended up having the best night ever as a sassy blonde :) More »
After I saw the original members of L7 perform their first concert in 18 years at the Echo on Thursday night, I had a hard time imagining a show that could outdo their blistering performance. Last night, I saw The Bangles live in concert at the Troubadour in West Hollywood and can honestly say that the show was just as amazing as the L7 show but for vastly different reasons. The Bangles are touring without original bassist Michael Steele which was a bummer to me … until they brought out Kathy Valentine of The Go Gos to play on stage with them. I mean … The Bangles and a Go Go together on one stage? I couldn’t believe what I was seeing. I managed to get some photos and video of the performances of Walk Like an Egyptian and Eternal Flame, which you can see below. I have a feeling you will enjoy. More »
Last night was a busy night for me. Yesterday was Darion’s birthday and while the big celebration is yet to come on Saturday night, he gathered together a small group of friends for dinner at Connie & Ted’s in West Hollywood, CA. Dinner was really great because I got to see a few friends I hadn’t seen in a while and, of course, because we all got to celebrate Darion’s birth. After dinner, I made my way to the Echo in Echo Park to see L7 perform a super tiny pre-tour warm up concert and OMG were they amazing. Last night was seriously one of the best nights I’ve enjoyed in a while. More »
Last night I finally got out of the house to hang out with Eileen. She and I had been talking about getting drinks so I picked her up at her place and she decided we should check out a new cocktail lounge in West Hollywood called Now Boarding. The bar is themed around air travel and it looks like you’re in an airport lounge. Like most bars in WeHo, the drinks were a bit pricey … but they were delicious. Eileen and I had a couple drinks each and a really great night overall. More »
Not only am I watching old moves this week, like Dawn of the Dead yesterday, but I’m also making time to watch old seasons of my fave TV shows … like 24. A few days ago, I found a channel that was airing episodes from season 2 of 24 and I stopped to watch one ep … then another, then felt compelled to finish out the season. 24, IMHO, got really good in season 2 and it really reminded me how great the show was in its hey day. So, my day yesterday was spend remembering how much fun it was to watch Jack Bauer and his revolving band of CTU operatives save the world one hour at a time. More »

Yesterday was a quite day for me. I ended up staying in to take care of a few things around the house and watch movies … among them, the 2004 zombie movie Dawn of the Dead. Unlike most remakes, ’04′s version of 1978 George A. Romero‘s classic horror film is quite spectacular. In all honesty, I actually prefer this remake to the original. Long before The Walking Dead was a phenomenon, Dawn of the Dead picked up where 2003′s 28 Days Later left off — giving us zombies to love and fear. I’m so glad I caught this movie on cable because it had been many years since I’d seen it and I had forgotten how much I love it still. More »

After my day excursion in Disneyland Friday and Saturday, I decided to kick it at home yesterday for Sunday Funday. I really felt a bit wrecked so it was nice to do nothing but lounge all day. I did end up going out last night for a bit of dancing with my friend Ashley at the Morrissey/The Smiths night at the Part Time Punks party at the Echoplex. Ashley and I have hung out at this Moz danceparty before so I knew we would have fun … and we did. Rest all day, dance all night … it was pretty perfect. More »
