Konichiwa Bitches!!! I’ve been totally into Robyn lately. I like the vocals she did on Snoop’s song, Sexual Eruption. It totally made the song for me! And her self-titled album finally came out in the states. My favorite song off the album is Handle Me. I heard the Remix on Sirius’ The Beat and I can’t get enough of it! The standout tracks for me are: Konichiwa Bitches, Handle Me, and With Every Heartbeat. If you wanna read or see some more stuff on Robyn, check out her website.
So needless to say when PerezHilton.com had a promotion to win tickets I signed up! I received an email today saying that I won some tickets!!!!!! It’s so awesome. Even though this coming weekend is Long Beach Pride, I’m going to leave Pride early and check out Robyn at the Wiltern Theater! If you wanna check for tickets to Robyn in your area check out the tour list. I’ll let you know how the concert goes!
Here is the email telling me about my free tickets!!
Hi, you have won 2 tickets to see Robyn at the Wiltern Theatre in Los Angeles on 5/17/2008!
3790 Wilshire Blvd
Your name will be on a list at the door
UPDATE >>>>>>> 5/17/08
I went to the concert with Nicola. I had just done Long Beach Pride earlier and it was about 100 degrees outside! I was exhausted. I’m glad that we made it though. We both had such a good time! The tickets were for the floor general admission. Robyn didn’t come out until 10:40PM or so. The concert went by so fast! She even did her old songs in a new style. It was awesome! She had so much energy!! I thought that Nicola was a fan but she had never heard her stuff before. I think a new fan was made that night! She even did about 2 minutes of Sexual Eruption by Snoop Dogg!! It was awesome! There were tons of cuties too!

Luis and I went to go check out Chico’s Angels 4: Chicas are 4ever at the Cavern Club Theater. It’s one of our favorite play series of plays and this was a new one! We were very excited. I also got to meet a whole bunch of Luis’ friends. I met: Ivette, Nestor, and Norma. They were great fun! It’s always nice hanging out with fellow latinos! Before the show we had dinner at the mexican restaurant above: Casita Del Campo. My friend Heidee also joined us! We had a very good time! This one was cute but I have to say that the best one by far was Part 3. This time around they did their own music instead of doing parodies and it didn’t work out!
One of my favorite scenes though was at the stripper bar with the stripping puppet. You have to see it! It was hilarious. As Luis always says, “You know You Like it Funny”. After the play we all went back to my house and hung out for a while. It was so much fun!
During that same weekend, Luis and I caught two movies. We saw IronMan at the ArcLight Hollywood and we saw Baby Momma at the Grove. I have to say that I really enjoyed watching Iron Man. I went into it skeptical. I usually hate the cheezy comic book turned to movies. This one was different though. The story was engaging, the special effects were amazing, and the writing was superb. I mean there were times where it was cheezy and things didn’t make sense but it was overall a very good movie! I loved that they used witty humor instead of the usual one-liners. It definately was a movie worth watching. I enjoyed this one as much as I enjoyed Batman Begins with Christian Bale (I love you). The cast for Iron Man was very good. Paltrow and Robert Downing Junior were very good together. Who knew!!
I liked Baby Momma. Luis didn’t like it so much! I think most of America hated it. I love everything Tina Faye does! Although I do have to say that Amy Poeller stole the movie! Her scenes were very funny. I also loved Sigourney Weaver. Her character was too funny!! I loved it. It could have been a little funnier and the ending was total crap. It looked like they changed the ending during one of those audience polls to better suit stupid America. It was dumb! At least we still have 30 Rock!
We also tried Jinky’s. It’s a little Cafe really close to my house that I’ve been wanting to go to forever! They do brunch and that’s what we did. The food was good but it was a little pricey. I think we are jaded because we were expecting something like the Griddle Cafe. If you’ve never been and you are in Hollywood, you have to go check it out! There is always a big line outside, but it’s worth the wait trust me!!!

Meera and I at High School Prom ’95
Luis and I Dressed up for Halloween
Getting old and fat is a bitch! Alex just sent posted these pics on FaceBook!! The first one is my Prom picture with Meera! I think I had a 28″ waist or something crazy like that! WTF Happened! Time to get Carribbean Body© Back! The second picture is Luis and I in College for the big gay halloween party. I was the slutty priest and he was a poodle skirt wearing hoe. Although because of the hair everyone thought that he was dressed as Ricki Lake from Hairspray. So he went with it!!!

Warning this isn’t for the faint at heart! I saw this video afterwards and I almost passed out! I can guarantee that the operation is painless. And I’m super scared even to get blood drawn! When you see the operation you can’t believe that was really you in there. I mean it felt like seconds went by. Everyone at Dr. Wallace’s office was amazing. I felt at ease the whole time, and as you can see in the video, they talk you through the operation and reassure you every step of the way!
I still can’t believe i did it already! If you are thinking about doing it hit me up! I’ll give ya all the details.
Every now and then it hits me that I don’t need to go digging up my glasses anymore!! It’s the most amazing feeling in the world.

Heidee, her friend and I went to go see the Little Mermaid Sing-a-Long at the El Capitan Theatre. We had so much fun. I’m pretty sure that we were the only adults there without children. It felt a little creepy but we loved it anyway. Ariel came out before the movie which was fun. Before the movie started they released a whole bunch of fish confetti at the audience. Fun! Fun! Fun! Heidee really got into the singing!! The theatre was pretty empty though! I was amazed, I thought it would be more full than that! I have to say though that everytime I go to the Capitan, I feel like I should go there more often! I love that theatre. The prices are not the cheapest, but the experience is second to none!!!
So I had major Roommie drama! British Boy’s ex, Rex, was supposed to move in with me. We really hit it off and I thought he was such a great guy. So we make plans to move in together. He was going to move in May 1st. Something told me that things weren’t going to be smooth. Things never are with me and getting roommates. So as it turns out… two weeks before his move in date, he sends me an email saying that he feels bad but he can’t move in. All of a sudden he’s moving to NYC for a job opportunity that he can’t pass up. He gave other personal reasons which is really why I think he did it. It was all a cluster fuck. He fucked me over because I didn’t have anyone to help me pay for the month of May. He fucked over my co-worker, John, because he was going to move in to Rex’s apartment. Last time John went over to check out the apartment, Rex was still there. I was upset and hurt for a while but like I’ve said before on here, Karma is real, and it’s a bitch.
When I was telling Luis the story of what happened he said he wanted to move back in. You don’t know what a sigh of relief that was for me. I’ve known Luis forever, even though we have our differences, we work out as roommates. He’s someone that I can trust with the apartment and with Lola, and he totally understands the Cuban insanity factor. For example, I don’t have to worry about him being upset if my parents come to visit for a week. Cuban parts don’t get hotel rooms, they stay with you! Which is great! I did loose May’s rent because I didn’t have enough time to find someone but I am so glad that Luis came in for June. He saved me! And I think he missed West Hollywood too
The last bit of drama was when Anthony was moving out. He was going to move out on a Saturday. I told him that instead of doing that, that we should go to Venice for the day and he was welcome to move out the next Saturday. Anthony gave me this little speech about not wanting to over-extend his stay. I told him it was cool. So Friday night before our Venice outing he tells me he has a “baseball game” to go to and if we can go to Venice and be back by 2:00pm. I was frustrated at that point because he was supposed to be moving out all day and didn’t have baseball plans before. I said never mind because I don’t like to be held on to time constraints like that. So he tells me that we should do brunch the next day. I was mad but i got over it because he said we would do brunch.
Saturday morning I wake up ready for brunch and he tells me another story. This time he read the email wrong and the game is at 12:00pm. Can we do brunch in 45 minutes? At this point I’ve had it. I was so fucking pissed. And like always he pretends like he doesn’t know what’s wrong. I hate it when he plays the idiot. It made me realize there and then that Anthony doesn’t care about anyone else except himself. He gave me this speech about not over staying his welcome and the minute I tell him he doesn’t have to move out that Saturday he fills it with things to do that don’t involve me. Even though we were supposed to hang out all day. As kind of a goodbye. He fucked all that.
I’m at the point in my life that I have to keep moving if people don’t make an effort at friendship. This wasn’t the first time this happened, it was more like the third, and I’ve honestly had enough. I know I’ve had enough because instead of being angry, I’m indifferent. I just don’t care anymore. You have to surround yourself with people that love you and care for you. Not just people that are in it for themselves.

I’m not a big fan of reality TV shows. I have a select few that I love. Mostly they are on Bravo: Project Runway, Top Chef, Work Out, and all the trashy celebrity ones! I had seen a quick ad for Viva Hollywood and I was like what??!!
The show is a reality TV content to for latino men and women to see if they have what it takes to be the next telenovela superstar. I’m not a fan of the telenovela’s but I do love the drama! I saw the premiere last Sunday at 10:30PM. It was amazing!!! The hosts: Maria Conchita Alonso and Carlos Ponce definitely bring a flavor to reality TV that is missing!! And Carlos Ponce is hot hot hot!!!! The contestants are super hot, the challenges are ridiculous, and the latino celebrities are awesome! They even have Walter Mercado! Perez Hilton and Charo are going to be upcoming celebrities!!!
Even if you aren’t Latin, you have got to see this show! It’s amazing. I’m definitely going to tell as many people as possible. VH1 is awesome for giving this show a shot! It has a lot of heart! And it definitely makes me proud of being Latino!!!! Let me know what you think of the show!

Saturday night I was invited to the premiere of A Four Letter Word by John. John is our new Talent Coordinator at Jake Cruise. He worked on the movie and got Anthony and I comp tix. Jim came to join us also. He was supposed to be accompanied by Joe, but the bitch didn’t come out. The movie had already premiered in New York and this was the West Coast premiere at the Laemmle Sunset 5 by my house.
Anthony and I went early and had dinner at California Pizza Kitchen. We hadn’t gone out for dinner in a long time so it was nice. We met up with John before the movie where he gave us our tickets. There were so many gay celebrities out. We were introduced to the stars of the movie: Jesse Archer and Charlie David, and we also saw: Alec Mapa, Ms. Coco Peru (out of drag), Rex Lee, and Thea Gill.
Everyone then went inside to see the movie. It was a gay movie and I totally support it but having said that, it wasn’t the greatest movie out there. Sure the guys are hot but the wit and the lines just weren’t there. It’s hard to say that since I was there to support the movie but I can’t lie! We did have a very good time though! After the movie the director, Casper Andreas had a question and answer session with himself and the main cast. There was an after-party at Here Lounge but I was so exhausted from a three hour hike that day that I called it a night!

Rafael texted me from work Thursday saying that we should go out and check out Club Nur: Middle Eastern Night @ MJ’s in Silverlake. It was funny because minutes before I was reading my email newsletter from MJ’s where they were advertising Middle Eastern night. The strippers looked hot, and I have a weakness for middle eastern guys!
So Rafael came over after work. We had a nice hike with Lola down to Hamburger Mary’s. He was starving. I was so-so. We sat outside with Lola and I had two very strong Apple Mojitos. I was fucked up. AGAIN. The walk back up to the apartment took a lot of coordination! We finally reached my place and Mariano said he would come out with us. I didn’t think he was going to come. At one point in the night he cancelled but I threatened never to talk to him again, so he showed up!
It was very cute. They decorated the inside of MJ’s with a middle eastern theme. There were Persian rugs everywhere, the music was middle-eastern dance music, and the guys were so cute! The outside area was my favorite. They made some nice seating areas from rugs and had lamps lighting up the whole place. Did I mention there were middle-eastern strippers? HOT HOT HOT. We saw Rami from Project Runway Season 3. This is the second time I see him out-and-about in LA. I had an inkling that I’d see him there since they had a picture of him at the Club Nur website.
We all had such a great time! If you are ever in the Silverlake area on a Thursday night, make sure to check out Club Nur @ MJ’s!

Last night Rafael, Rex, James, and I went to go check out Shelter at the Sunset 5 Laemmle Theatre. I love Laemmle Theatres because it’s a chain of independent movie theaters in Los Angeles. The movie was a gay surfer movie. I’ve been wanting to check it out ever since I heard all this buzz around it. And hello it has Brad Rowe who was Gabriel on Billy’s Hollywood Screen Kiss!
Rafael and I met up at the theater. We met Rex and his friend at California Pizza Kitchen. We had a great time during dinner and then headed to the movie. I can tell everyone hated the movie. I liked it. I will admit that it was slow at times but it was so cute!!! The movie had so much potential. I think everyone else hated it because there were no full nude scenes. If there had been it would have captured their attention more Rafael and I were supposed to go for some drinks after the movie, but Lola was acting up and so he just went home. But first we made a quick stop to Circus of Books to rent some naughty DVD’s!
I’m going to check out A Four Letter Word this Saturday. My friend at work helped produce the movie and we are going to go to the Los Angeles premiere at the Laemmle! I’ll let you know how that goes!

Heidee, Nicole, another friend, and myself went to go check out this play. Heidee told us about it last minute and I was ready to go. It was at the Hudson Theatre in Hollywood. It’s a tiny theatre that probably only sits 60 people. The cool thing about the theatre is that the front of it is a coffee shop. So you hang out grab a coffee and a snack and then go right into the theatre when the time comes for the play.
The play was so much fun. It was about a guy who is about to propose to his girlfriend but first he has to tell her that he was gay for two years in San Francisco. It was very cute! It was called RegretroSexual. After the play we hung out outside to chit-chat a little bit. We were outside for so long that the actors came out and thanked us for coming. They were probably freaked out that we were some psycho groupies wanting their autographs. We all said our goodbyes and went home.
I made a pit stop for In-n-Out burger, I was starving, and then I headed over to the Zone. But that’s another story for another time….
