Movie Review: ‘Transformers: Age Of Extinction’

Last night I was invited to attend an early screening of Transformers: Age of Extinction in the Paramount Theater on the Paramount Studios Lot. Because I’ve been anxiously awaiting the release of this movie for months and because of the DINOBOTS, I was really excited to see the movie. I invited my homie Jessie (from our Sons of Anakin Social Club) to attend the screening with me and we had a great time. I’m happy to say that I really enjoyed Age of Extinction MUCH more than the last Transformers movie Revenge of the Fallen. I must admit that Extinction has its faults but all in all, I had a pretty fun time at the movies last night. More »

Kiwi Love

Last night I got to hang out with Emma and Josh for the first time in seemingly forever. Emma and Josh have been bizzy, I’ve been bizzy, we’ve all been bizzy. Thankfully, we finally all got together last night for a fun dinner hang. Em and Josh are hosting his friend Nabila for a few days and I got to meet her last night. She had just flown in from New Zealand and was totally cool with hanging out with all of us. We ate, we laughed, we drank … we had a blast. More »

All In The Family

I spent all of my yesterday chillin’ at Disneyland in Anaheim, CA which, as I’m sure you know, isn’t that much of a surprise. Yesterday’s hang was a bit different because it was my first “official” hang day with the Sons of Anakin Social Club that I’m joining. Altho I’m still a lowly prospect, I got to enjoy the funnest day ever in the parks with this new group of friends. I mean, it’s not like I need a reason to go to Disneyland or Disney’s California Adventure but getting to spend time with this group of Disney/Star Wars fans is only the best thing ever. More »

No, No, No ‘Joseph’

My friend Adriana and I have been talking about seeing a couple of musical shows here in LA in recent weeks and we decided that we needed to see the new touring production of Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. Our interest didn’t really lie in the fact that the show stars American Idol losers and real-life husband and wife Ace Young and Diana DeGarmo. Our interest lied solely in the fact that we just LOVE the show. Aide and I are so bad at planning that we sometimes miss things … and we almost missed seeing Joseph, too. The show ends its run today so we figured, let’s see the show ASAP … so at 11AM we decided to see the 2pm matinee performance yesterday. We had a lot of fun together but … this production of Joseph left MUCH to be desired. More »

Happy (Almost) Birthday, Amelia

Last night a bunch of got together to celebrate our dear friend Amelia‘s upcoming birthday with a night of massively bad but superfun karaoke. Amelia‘s birthday isn’t until Monday but she chose last night as the night that we would all sing our hearts out in celebration of her day of birth. Now, I’m not the biggest fan of karaoke (mainly because I’m terrible at it) but I was more than happy to make it out last night to party with Amelia. Click below to see fun photos and hear really bad versions of some of your favorite songs. More »

Bang, Bang

Last night I met up with my friend Ollie for a quick hang session that turned into an all-night affair. Even tho I got to spend some time with Ollie at her birthday party a couple of weekends ago, I haven’t had the opportunity to hang out with her one-on-one for some time … we were way overdue. She suggested that we visit our fave place in Koreatown Toe Bang and I was ALL for a night of supping on kimchee pancakes, cheese corn and multi-flavored soju. We ate, we laughed, we had the best time ever … as usual. More »

Movie Review: ‘The Fault In Our Stars’

Last night I made my way out to the ArcLight Theater in Hollywood to see a showing of The Fault in our Stars. Sarah and I planned on seeing it together when I was in Detroit last week but the timing never worked out. I guess it’s for the best that I saw the movie by myself because I was able to bawl my eyes out hidden away from everyone else and not embarrass myself. I never got around to reading the book but I knew what I was in for. Even still, I wasn’t expecting the emotion to pretty much drag me down into a puddle of tears but, yeah, that’s what happened. The Fault in our Stars is a great movie, I’m glad I made the time to see it. More »

The Detroitness

And so, I am back home in LA after my lovely week-long visit to Michigan last week. As always, my time back home was so great but it really flew by this time. I had gotten really used to just chillin’ with Sarah and Mark and then, BAM, it was time for me to return home. I did consider staying a bit longer but I have a lot of stuff to get done here in LA than, blah, I just came last night as scheduled. My last day in Detroit was fun, mostly because I got to squeeze in a bit of extra hang time with Sarah and Mark … oh, and I got to enjoy lunch at Olga’s so, yeah, it was a pretty great day. More »

Padre’s Day

Yesterday was my last full day here in metro Detroit and it was the main reason for my trip home this time. I usually come home for Mother’s Day or Father’s Day and this year, it was Father’s Day :D My parents even decided to skip church so that they could spend more time hanging out … which is absolutely UNHEARD OF from my parents. When I was a kid, we never skipped church for nothing … NO MATTER HOW HARD I TRIED. Even if I was sick, we had to go to church because what better place for me to pray my illness away than church. These days, my folks tend to skip church more often and they’ve flat out stopped going as often. BUT, I digress. I got to spend the early part of the day with my folks before Sarah and I met up with some friends for a fantastic home-cooked meal. It was basically the perfect Michigan day. More »

Clear Eyes, Full Moon, Can’t Lose

Friday the 13th here in Detroit was a smashing success. Sarah, Mark and I made our way downtown to Comerica Park to see the Detroit Tigers take on the Minnesota Twins on an absolutely perfect night for baseball. The moon was full and we had the best time ever. Back home in my other home, the LA Kings won the Stanley Cup which also made me very happy … cuz if I can’t have my Red Wings, I’ll happily take the LA Kings :D More »
