All I need's a little love in my life


Last minute decisions are the greatest, aren't they? The hour before doors were about to open, I decided to take a leap of faith and attend the "Broken Heart Tour" over at Slim's in San Francisco. Great choice, Ash. Great choice.

And to the fellas over there with the hella good hair...

It's been about two years since Taylor Swift dropped a new album and in one day she surprised the world with a video, new album date and single. Everyone's trying to pull a Queen Bey. I'm not complaining though. I like surprises.

I gladly accept this nomination...


If you really haven't seen any of these videos, you're living under a rock. I mean, this has been posted seriously on every social media platform ever and it's causing a great battle on my Twitter feed. 

In case you're curious and you need a laugh, here are more celebrity #IceBucketChallenges. BUT! Here are the better ones... Which are the fails.

OK. I literally saw signage everywhere around Comic Con. They did it. They got their message across. So, naturally, I decided to binge watch the first season of Penny Dreadful this weekend. The first thing that drew me to the show was Josh Hartnett. Now, I fell in love with his face when he was in The Faculty and Halloween H20. For some reason, I thought he was in way more prepubescent teenage movies movies but... He wasn't. Either way, I knew I had to give it a shot.

Life is fleeting. And if you're ever distressed, cast your eyes to the summer sky when the stars are strung across the velvety night...

I really never care THIS much about a celebrity's death, even one I've never met but this one hits close to home. Like so many others, I grew up watching movies Robin Williams starred in. Jumanji, Aladdin, Mrs. Doubtfire, Birdcage and most especially Jack

My eyes and ears literally cannot be taken away from the television screen. When I found out, I was scrolling through Twitter and the first thing I did was scream, "NO!" For some reason, I forget that people pass away. I always think we'll live forever. Positive thinking, I guess. For two days straight, I sat in front of the television watching the specials and all the newscasts that have anything to do with Robin Williams. He really was like everyone's favorite uncle. I cannot think of one person who absolutely hated him. If you're out there, I just need to ask, why?! 

It's so weird to know that he was literally thirty minutes or so away from me. He loved the Bay Area. A man that brought laughter to so many people was in our own backyard. What an honor. He was able to do something for all of us that made him seem like everyone did know him. It pains me to know that we couldn't be there for him in his times of need. He masked his suffering so well yet he always was able to bring happiness for everyone else. I'm gutted. 

It upsets me when people say, "You're only caring so much now since he died." Well, look. I didn't go around confessing my love for Robin Williams. I just knew it. It didn't have to be said out loud so get out of here with that type of thinking. 

Lately, I've been thinking about what I would have done if I ever met Robin. I probably would have given him the longest hug in the history of hugs and just thank him for everything. Maybe, I'd be too overwhelmed. Maybe, I'd have the best conversation in the world with him. One that never made sense. What I do know for sure is that it would have been the highlight of my life. 

Rest in Peace, Robin Williams.


COMPLETE SIDEBAR: I saw so much of the same characteristics he had in my own dad. It's crazy how much I think they're so alike. The next person I would dread to see pass away is Jackie Chan. I always saw Jackie Chan + Robin Williams = my dad.
