Thank you iTunes Season Pass

25 Jun

You have made these days without a DVR a lot more bearable. It’s been hard moving and traveling knowing that I was missing episodes of Friday Night Lights now that it’s back on the air.

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: hands down my favorite show on TV.

Thanks to you I’ve also been able to catch up on the new season of Deadliest Catch which I have also been missing.

I was able to have my own “marathon” of ten episodes on a ten-hour flight from London to LA and it was awesome. But there was one drawback. While I did get to enjoy the episodes completely commercial-free, it had no Bon Jovi theme song. And Deadliest Catch is just not the same without it.

“I’m a cowboy…”

My Life is Lost

22 Jun

Someone just posted a link to this site:

Thought it  was kinda touching. And it reminded me of this classic from

Overheard in New York:

That Jerk Never Returns My Calls
Girl #1: This whole Ben situation is really starting to piss me off.
Girl #2: I know! I just don’t know what his deal is.
Girl #1: He called me like twelve times yesterday.
Girl #2 (stopping in the middle of Penn Station): He called you? (pauses for a moment) Oh, you mean Ben your boyfriend, don’t you?
Girl #1: As opposed to?
Girl #2: Ben from Lost.
Girl #1: Don’t talk to me for an hour, please.

That was Beth’s response to my last post.

No, the tuna and bologna is strictly for sandwiches. But I’m not going to knock it until…

No. I’m just going to knock it.

PB & Co.

Last time I was in New York I came across this place.

It’s a cafe that specializes in Peanut Butter.

Apparently I caused a little but of a stir.

They serve sandwiches like a school lunch, with chips and carrot sticks. I sampled the “lunchbox special” (classic peanut butter and grape jelly) and a Fluffer Nutter shake.

I recommend the shake.

And for those of you not into peanut butter they also have tuna and bologna as well.

Monte(gna) Carlo

17 Jun

Yeah it’s stupid. But when the title came to me I had to use it even though the spelling is wrong.

One of the highlights of my trip to Monte Carlo was meeting Joe Mantegna. We were both there for Disney International publicity. Really nice guy.

Here I am with Kevin McHale and Jenna Ushkowitz from GLEE after the awards ceremony.

A note about my pictures

14 Jun

Yes. My pictures are small. I keep them small on purpose. Sorry about this, but it’s my only defense against poaching, which has happened in the past.

More Monte Carlo

14 Jun

So this year marked the 50th anniversary of the Monte Carlo Television Festival.

I took these photos at the cake cutting ceremony with the prince. (That’s LL Cool J in the hat.)

Hung out with Elizabeth and Scott Wolf at the cocktail reception at the Minister of State’s place.

Here’s a shot of Zach Levi and Busy Philips and me at the 50th anniversary party.

Where I ran into Ian.

And together we crushed his friend Nina.

Monte Carlo

12 Jun

I returned to Monte Carlo for their annual Golden Nymph Television Festival.

The celeb sightings started at LAX for us as Ice-T was checking in right ahead of us. Really a cool guy and a fan of the show. He pulled his camera out so I pulled out mine.

The festival had a lot of the same press that I had met in my previous trips. Including Tero Paloniemi who confessed that back at home he’s known as the “Hurley of Finland.” Here we are this trip.

And here we were two years ago.

Did I get taller?


10 Jun

Man! I’m struggling with this new blog. It took about 10 tries to get the video up. (It works now right?… Please?)

And then I somehow deleted my header and had to dig it out and reload it.

All I wanted was a place to post where I don’t have to worry about people trying to hock tennis shoes or handbags, but I’m starting to get an itch to return to the familiar.
