Stars, stars, everywhere stars

I'm currently in NYC for a week or two of fun and relaxation, so I took it upon myself to see a Broadway show last night. That show happened to be Fences. It is truly an amazing fiery show that everyone within driving distance of New York should see. Denzel Washington and Viola Davis are two of the best actors around, and throughout the show they prove exactly why. Especially Ms. Davis, who is a FUCKING VOLCANO of an actress; powerful, fierce, chilling and consoling. The hairs on your arms stand up whenever she's on the stage. But that's not why I'm posting here right now.

Last night, a bunch of stars took it upon themselves to go see the show and as a result completely stole the show. Will and Jada, Mr. Schuester from Glee, Aretha Franklin and Jorge Garcia from Lost.   I'll let you pick up your jaws from the floor for a while.  The only one I got a glimpse of was Schuester (mainly because he was sitting two rows down from me), but all anyone outside could talk about was shaking Will Smith's hand. If only I wasn't in the ladies room. lol.

Empire State of Mind

Haven't posted in a while, isn't it a little crazy? But anyways..come this time Wednesday, I'll be in New York City enjoying a week or two (still haven't decided yet) of Broadway. Won't spend too much (TKTS) but I'll dispatch a bit about it. :) :) :)

DAMN YOU NBC!

'Parenthood' is, as far as I'm concerned, one of the best pilots in a very long time. WATCH IT TUESDAY NIGHT! I swear I'm not an NBC PR person (they suck ass), but this show is great.
