The TV Guide: The Long Goodbye

Yesterday was full of sad goodbyes ... it was David's last full day here in LA before he had to fly back East to NYC and it was also Steph and Alek's last day before they had to fly back even more East to Paris, France where they will be for the next 4 weeks 3 weeks 2 weeks (it's unclear just how long they will be away ... the time keeps getting shorter and shorter every time I ask them about it). Mike G., David, Darion and I swung by S&A's place for one last goodbye yesterday afternoon ... and, of course, we had to take a couple of last minute pics before saying goodbye:


We got to hang out for a bit before we had to be off ... David, Mike G. and I had dinner plans before I was to take David to the airport so Darion tagged along for a quick bite to eat at Fat Fish in West Hollywood. Jordan, who was in the neighborhood, stopped by to hang out for a while as well. I got to meet Pink reader Brandon at the restaurant who came over to say hello during dinner. It was while we were finished up that Steph and Alek sent a couple pics from the airport and from their plane before they departed for France:


I have to say ... I'm really gonna miss these guys. We all got so close over the past few weeks, it's sad that they're gone for so long. But they've got biz to take care of at home and they'll be back in SoCal in no time. I'm already looking forward to the big celebration we'll have when they return to LA.

After we dropped David off at the airport, Mike G. and I grabbed some coffee at Insomnia before going to the movies to see American Zombie:


Now, the movie was Mike G.'s pick and he really enjoyed it ... I'm still not sure how I feel about the flick. The movie is a faux documentary of the lives of zombies living in America. It has a humorous bent to it for the first half of the film but then it takes a decidedly darker tone as the movie progresses. It doesn't really become a horror film, per se, but it is a bit disturbing. The movie just felt really weird to me. I didn't love it but I didn't hate it either. The movie is very inventive storywise but I'm not sure that the execution was really that successful. But as I said, Mike really liked it so I'm sure there's a market.

This evening, I'm meeting up with Mike and Adriana for dinner in Silverlake and that's about it, I think. I want to try and get some work done tonight ahead of tomorrow's big day. I have to be at the Dancing with the Stars taping pretty early in the afternoon so I'll have limited time to write in the AM. But WOOT! I'm finally going to get to see Kylie Minogue with my own eyes ... I can't wait!!!
