Darfur Now

If you don't know what is going on in Sudan, you should be ashamed of yourself. Finally, Hollywood has provided you with a good way to do it if you are lazy and opt not to read the news on a regular basis. I like Don Cheadle, and now even more so:

Destination: Seattle and Portland

I'm headed to the Pacific Northwest for 3 days to check it out and see some cold weather. I also get to visit one of my close friends from growing up (T, I can't wait!), so it's going to be a blast. I'm packing my umbrella, but hoping that I won't need it. Details and pictures to follow next week.


This movie sucked. There is no other way to say it. 1 in 10 people will like this movie because they will try to piece everything together, but it just gave me a headache...

So disappointing on Anthony Hopkins' part:

Los Angeles is ON FIRE...again?

To everyone that has called me and emailed me in the past two days, thank you. It's nice to be loved. But please don't worry, the fires in Los Angeles are not affecting where I live at all. At least not yet. What is happening though nearby is devastating, and we can only hope that the fires are contained soon. Of all places, Malibu (known as one of the most beautiful and ritzy areas of LA) has burnt to the ground. Other suburbs of Los Angeles, as well as San Diego, are next as the fire rages on with no intention of stopping.

I just dropped off 5 bags of clothing at the Good Will on Saturday, and now I am so happy that I did. I encourage everyone else to clean out their closets too. There are going to be a lot of people in need of help after this tragedy.

Movies Coming Out this Weekend!

I was lucky enough to screen 3 movies that are coming out this weekend. There are two of my reviews below - one for Reservation Road, and the other for Things We Lost in the Fire. The other that I didn't write up, however, is worth seeing over the these two films...Gone Baby Gone. I saw Gone Baby Gone and thought it was one of the best movies that I've seen in a long time. Ben Affleck should be writing and directing, not acting. And Casey Affleck is such a bad ass, you will love him even more after seeing his performance. Go see it this weekend. Seriously, I strongly urge you to! You will not regret this decision!

As for my other reviews, check them out:
Reservation Road

And Things We Lost in the Fire

Top 5 Favorites

I love asking people these questions:
What are your top 5 favorite _________???

You can fill in the blank with anything: bars, songs, movies, cities, celebs, people, etc.

So I'm now asking you - what are your top 5 favorites? The rule is that these 5 favorites do not have to be given in any order. There is no favoritism. I am challenging you to and encourage you to post your 'favs' for others to can be any category that you like!

I'll start. Here are my top 5 favorite bars of all time, in no particular order:
The Peculiar Pub - New York, NY
Barney's Beanery - West Hollywood, CA
The Coogee Bay Hotel - Sydney, Australia
Cafe 210 - State College, PA
The Princeton - Avalon, NJ

See, it's easy. Give it a whirl.

Sightings and Celeb Scoop

Last night, I was lucky enough to co-host an Ivy Alumni Event at Ketchup here in Los Angeles. It was a success, and while hanging out and having a drink, we spotted David Spade eating a few tables away. In a plaid shirt, he seemed to be having a good time. He is really short, but you probably could have guessed that, right?

I want to get Caught in the Act with this guy.

I am in love with Michael Buble. Not because he's a decent looking guy, but I think he's this generation's Frank Sinatra. Every single song he sings - I LOVE IT. No, let me rephrase that - I am obsessed with every single one. He makes me want to hold a dinner party for 50 people one day, and the next dance around in my underwear. I just needed to shout it from the rooftops!

Sunset Tan

Who actually watches Sunset Tan? Anyone? I was watching it at the gym today because it's shot 3 blocks from my house. So obviously, I like to just check it out to see what sorts of things they film in West Hollywood. When people ask me "Why on earth would you ever want to leave LA??? The weather and everything is just so great here!" To them, I say: please watch Sunset Tan for 30 full minutes...then you will understand the dark side.
