Analog Bar's Grand Opening Party is Tonite!

Everybody loves free alcohol and food. So when the opportunity arises for both and there's no crazy ass catch involved you gotta jump at the chance. Analog Bar is now having their GRAND Opening tonite. Free apps and drinks from 7-9PM will be available for you if you're on the guestlist and Karaoke with a live band is also on the menu. After that the venue is open to others and Jay-Z's DJ will be heating up the dance floor. Sounds like a party to me!!!

Drink More Water!

Did you know?

Drinking water at the correct time maximizes its effectiveness on the

Human body (but anytime you're drinking water you're doing your boddy a huge favor!):

2 glasses of water after waking up - helps activate internal organs

1 glass of water 30 minutes before a meal - helps digestion

1 glass of water before taking a bath - helps lower blood pressure

1 glass of water before going to bed - avoids stroke or heart attack

My Comic Con Celebrity Sightings

I couldn't find the time to post for the second half of last week because I was working 8 hours of Comic Con in the morning and 6 hours at a restaurant in the Gaslamp. The weekend was electric, I had no idea Comic Con was such a huge interesting event. I knew there were rad costumes, exclusive movie reveals, and action figures galore, but it goes far beyond that. Lots of movie stars were spotted all over town. The cast of the show, The Big Bang theory was rumored to be having drinks on 5th Avenue downtown, I didn't see them myself but here is who I DID see:

-Angelina Jolie and Liev Shcreiber: Saw them back stage before their panel on the movie SALT

-Jerry O'Connell: Saw him walking past my host station at Analog about 5 times (He was the asshole in Can't Hardly Wait, now married to Rebecca Romijn)

-Pauly Shore: Ok not as cool but still kinda cool, he said "Sup" to me

-Seth Green: He signed my friends autograph and hung at the restaurant I work at

-Rob Cordry: He was on The Daily Show and is the jackass friend in Hot Tub Time Machine. He ate on the patio of the restaurant I work at.

-Bill Hader: Look at me as he passed by the restaurant (The cop on Superbad and an SNL actor)

-The Cast of the show Community: They drove by on golf carts at Comic Con, Joel McHale the community lead and former Talk Soup host, walked right by me at Comic Con.

-The Redheaded geek from Glee: Freaky up close...

Arrested Development Fans Might Like This

If you liked Arrested Development you may have a new favorite TV show coming up soon:

David Cross has joined the cast of Running Wilde, a Fox sitcom produced by Arrested Development creator Mitch Hurwitz starring Will Arnett and Keri Russell.

Arnett, in keeping with his oeuvre, will play Steve Wilde, a self-assured (if not too bright) Los Angelino with a daddy in the oil business. Keri Russell plays an environmentalist, an old high school crush of Wilde, and the current object of his affection.

Andy Daly - the excellent principal Cutler from Eastbound and Down - was originally set to play Russel's fiance (and makes a hilarious doormat of a man, if you ask me) but has been replaced by David Cross. However, we know from AD Cross makes a good sidecar to Women With Causes, so we'll see.

Fox ordered thirteen episodes which are set to premiere in September.

Soggiest Opening Day at The Races Ever

So it's Del Mar Horse Racing Season once again! Today is the boooooozy drunken day where rich people in expensive dresses and even more expensive elaborate hats mill around the Racetrack and judge each other behind fake smiles and empty small talk. What? Hmm? No, I'm not bitter I wasn't The horse races are a blast when someone else is paying. One thing money can't buy is a sunny day to enjoy the drunken splendor, it's RAINING right now. Can't imagine how it's affecting the mood over there in Del Mar.

Season 2010: July 21 - September 8
Day 1 of 37 Race Days

One of the best parts of the races is the free shows (well free with a $6 entrance fee to the races, still cheap). Go for the last couple of races and then stay for the show!

Despicable Me: Hilarious!! Seriously very funny, I think even more for adults! So cute, endearing, and of course, incredible mastery of animation and computer wizardry.

Inception: If you're not into gorgeous brain benders pass it up. If you are, you might just stay and watch the entire movie again right after you've seen it. Absolutely STUNNING cinematograpy.

Paris Loves her some Weed!

Paris Hilton was in South Africa watching the World Cup with friends when she was caught with some weed. A friend claimed it was theirs and Paris Hilton was on her way. Then a few weeks later while vacationing on the French island of Corsica, Paris was caught with a gram of weed! The cops let her go, $15 of weed ain't no problem when youre an heiress spending money in town! Hell I bet they gave her more weed to she'd bring the entourage to eat all over town! Tell you what, the fact that Ms. Hilton is kind of a stoner is intriguing...word on the Hollywood streets is Paris Hilton is actually way more intellectual and wittily funny than her tabloid persona would have you believe. Hmmm...

Jewel Performs In Disguise at a Haggard Karaoke Bar

Now: Sandwich in a can, or, Candwich

GROSS. But I wonder, how do you even eat it?

From Diet Blog:
It's all over. Forget 2012, right now is the end of days. We're finished! Either that or America has finally gone bonkers.

If nutrition-less white bread smeared with salty processed peanut butter and sugar-sweetened grape jelly wasn't bad enough, go ahead and stuff it into a can.

Straight from Creedmoor Psychiatric Center comes the "Candwich," your favorite soda can.

Okay, it's not actually from Creedmoor, but the creator should be, especially since he is being investigated for dumping $145 million into the Candwich, instead of putting the money into real estate investments, like he was supposed to. But whatever, that's the boring part of the story, let's focus on the travesty - err, task - at hand.

Don't quote me on this, but like most canned foods, you got to figure the Candwich has to be loaded with salt and preservatives. But according to the website there are still plenty of great reasons to buy the Candwich.

  • "Candwich is the perfect product for people on the go such as students, construction workers, soccer moms and outdoor enthusiasts."

  • "Unique packaging offers protection while backpacking, camping, biking, and other activities."

  • "Easy store display - does not require refrigeration."

  • "Candwich has a long shelf life that is perfect for emergency food storage needs in the event of natural disasters."

  • "Three great tasting products are available as single can, four-pack or case displays."

The Newest Reason to Despise Mel Gibson

FROM PopEater:

In the midst of being investigated for domestic violence, Mel Gibson has a very obscene leaked phone call on his hands. posted Gibson's obscene rant to the mother of his child and ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, who has accused the 'Bravehart' star of hitting her, a claim Gibson denies.

"So you're not lying to me about fake t---?" he begins. ""They look ridiculous. Get rid of them why don't you."

"You go out in public and it's a f-----g embarrassment to me. You look like a f------ b---- in heat. And if you get raped by a pack of n------ it will be your fault. Alright? Because you provoked it. You are provocatively dressed all the time with your fake boobs that you feel you have to show off. I don't like it. I don't want that woman. I don't want you. I don't trust you. I don't love you," Gibson yelled.
The Los Angeles Sheriff's Department is investigating Gibson over an alleged domestic violence incident from earlier this year involving his ex-girlfriend.


According to a news release, police have opened an inquiry into the alleged attack, which is dated Jan. 6, and are "currently gathering information regarding the allegations."

Sources tell TMZ that incidents also occurred in February and that Grigorieva, who has an 8-month old daughter named Lucia with Gibson, spoke to deputies on Monday.

The pair broke up in April after dating for a little over a year. At the time, Grigorieva was quoted as saying, "We have split up, suddenly and recently ... Unfortunately, I cannot give you the reason. But you will find out everything quite soon."

The couple made their first public appearance only a few weeks after Gibson's wife of over 30 years, Robyn, filed for divorce. Gibson has seven children from that marriage. Grigorieva has a son, Alexander, from a previous relationship with actor Timothy Dalton.

The Hollywood Reporter is currently reporting that Gibson's talent agency dumped him earlier this week in light of all the allegations. Gibson was repped by William Morris Endeavor Entertainment for several decades, specifically by longtime agent Ed Limato. Limato died last week leaving WME partner Ari Emanuel to cut ties with the actor, something he'd wanted to do since Gibson's anti-Semitic tirade in 2006.

"Mel was really important to Ed," an agency source said. "He was with him for 32 years and I think Ed saw him as a son." But he added, "The world knows how Ari feels and he has never changed that opinion."

Gibson is no longer on probation for a 2006 drunken driving case, and his conviction has since been expunged.

Desire To Ejaculate Motivates Local Christian To Wed


PADUCAH, KY—Throughout his life, 22-year-old Matthew Leske has been a devout Christian, attending services three times a week at Holy Christ Almighty Lutheran Church in his hometown of Paducah, regularly participating in Bible-study devotionals with his mother and four sisters, and faithfully adhering to the dictums of his strict fundamentalist Christian upbringing.

Throughout his post-pubescent life, Leske has also, like all male humans, been gripped by an intense, all-consuming desire to ejaculate sperm, but has been unable to do so out of fear of incurring the wrath of God and suffering an eternity of agonizing punishment in the afterlife.

A part-time prep-cook and odd-job yardwork handyman when not volunteering as a Bible witness to local shut-ins and nursing-home residents, the young Leske has never had much time for socializing with members of the opposite sex. Nevertheless, last week, Leske announced his intention to marry fellow Christian Luann Ruth Perkins, also a member of Holy Christ Almighty, whom he met on a church-sponsored Luther League hayride two months ago.

Leske cited his irresistible desire to achieve sexual climax and ejaculate sperm without having to go to hell as the number one factor in his decision to propose marriage.

"I really want to discharge semen," he said. "I mean I really, really, really want to really bad."

Living his 22 years inviolate under strict fundamentalist doctrine, Leske has never ejaculated, for to do so outside the holy bonds of sacramental matrimony would mean non-negotiable, eternal punishment upon death.

"I don't want to go to hell," said Leske, explaining his decision not to engage in premarital ejaculation. "I am absolutely terrified of the burning and scorching of my impure, unclean flesh in the Lake of Fire; the prodding and stabbing by pitchforks wielded by demons; and, in particular, the unending, eternal torment in pits of boiling pitch as Satan the Deceiver laughs in sadistic glee."

Burning with a desire to ejaculate so overwhelming that it has threatened to dwarf even his love for Christ, Leske has, ever since puberty, researched the subject at length, discovering "five score and seventeen" different methods by which males can achieve ejaculation. Unfortunately, Leske said, not one of them is permissible under fundamentalist-Christian law.

"Homosexuality, masturbation, oral-genital contact, frottage, shoe fetishes, barnyard animals, leaning up against a washing machine on spin cycle—I could go on and on," Leske said. "I would have gladly tried any one of these, because, like I said, I really, really want to ejaculate. Regrettably, though, they are all punishable by eternal torment in the demon pits, so it was pretty much either get married or give up on ejaculating completely."

While Leske is greatly looking forward to marriage and the sweet release of sperm it will bring, he noted that even in holy wedlock, fundamentalist Christian doctrine limits permissible ejaculation to just one circumstance: sexual congress for the purpose of procreation.

"I'm going to want to start a family pretty much immediately," he said. "If I can get a raise and a second job, I figure I might be able to eventually support a family of as many as six or seven offspring. That means I should hopefully get to ejaculate seven times before I die. I know, you're thinking, 'That's not much.' But believe me, it will sure beat the heck out of what I'm doing now, which is not ejaculating at all."

Leske does admit to harboring some doubts about his upcoming nuptials. "What if Luann, never having seen a naked man before, is so frightened that she refuses to allow me to ejaculate?" he said. "Divorce would be out of the question, and I'd be trapped forever in a non-ejaculatory marriage. It will probably work out okay, though: Once she becomes my wife, I should be able to command her to do whatever I say, and, even if it's against her wishes, it will be her Christian duty to obey me."

No date has been set for the wedding, but Leske said he would like it to take place "as soon as humanly possible."

"I have opened my heart and mind to Jesus Christ, the Son of God the Father, my Lord and Savior in Heaven, who died on the cross for my sins, that I might be born again in His blood. And I yearn for the righteous power of the Holy Spirit to fill me with holy inspiration. But I also yearn—desperately yearn, yearn with indescribable longing, I mean really, really yearn—to ejaculate. If it were up to me I would prefer to ejaculate right now. This minute. No lie."

I had to look this one up:

Lindsay Lohan Goin' to Jail

Is it wrong I sort of chuckled as she sobbed when the judge sentenced her to 90 days in jail for parole violations? Or is it more wrong that I care about a strangers business at all? Whatever, this is the modern day equivalent to watching a gladiator slowly die in a big arena and I'm watchin' the show just like the rest of the blood thirsty in attendance. I like that news has focused on the single most important aspect of Lohan's trial: Her "Fuck You" Manicure.

Bad Choice LiLo.....

Go See Avenue Q

It's actually SUPER hilarious and kinda sexy (yea even though it involves puppets!). And there's something in there for every broker 20/30/40/50/60 etc year old! See the description below. We got super cheap nosebleed section tickets but the beauty of Spreckles Theater made it ok. This year it's at the San Diego Civic Theatre which I bet is just as beautiful. It felt good to break the routine of just going to bars to get wasted or doing what we always do. I felt...cultured?? lol saaaad. But really, check it out!


AVENUE Q is the smash-hit Broadway musical about real life in New York City, as told by a cast of people and puppets through a hilariously irreverent, Tony®-winning book and score. The three-time Tony Award® winning musical will make its return to San Diego this July at the Civic Theatre.

AVENUE Q tells the story of Princeton, a bright-eyed college grad who moves to NYC with big dreams and a tiny bank account. The only apartment he can afford is way out on AVENUE Q, where everyone's looking for the same things he is: a decent job, a stable relationship, and a "purpose." Eventually, Princeton learns to embrace the ups and downs of city life and realizes that "the real world" isn't so bad, after all!

Cheap Happy Hour Idea

I LOVE El Torito and that mostly has to do with their Happy Hour. The food is tasty and the marga's are strong. It's Hump Day which in our fair San Diego just means another reason to drink. Also, it's so damn horribly gloomy outside that I feel like we NEED to drink. Isn't this weather out of control!?

San Diego's Lilith Fair Is Today!

Not like you bought tickets, seems like nobody did. I've read a bunch of articles about how sales for MOST tours and concerts are down unless you're Lady Gaga or Justin Beiber. Problem with Lilith Fair is that the women participating in this event are MANY but the ones coming to this town are feeeew. If you do go, most definitely DO NOT MISS THE WEEPIES. Bummed I have to work, I love them and fear I might never get to see them. Also, Miranda Lambert if you're into country, she's fiery, fun and has a great mix of songs. Other than that, good luck...Why no Erkyah Badu!?

The Five Best Sex-Themed TED Talks

You guys KNOW I love me some TED (TED is the gathering of all the world's smartest scientists, comedians, researchers, muscians, artists, philosophers, activists, pretty much the smartest people in any field who meet together and give 15 minute speeches on some insanely intriguing topics). Well here is the sexy (ish) side of TED As Chosen By, check it out!

#1: Mary Roach: Ten things you didn't know about orgasm

Curious about whether babies masturbate inside their mothers' wombs? Wondering if your money shot beats the distance record? Strangely preoccupied with whether dead people can have orgasms? Mary Roach addresses all these topics and then some in her upbeat discussion of the orgasm. Offering plenty of audio-visual material for the combination learners amongst us, Roach shocks and fascinates with images of monkey o-faces and a fairly graphic video of a farmer stimulating a sow's clitoris. Other highlights include a recipe for artificial sperm, and the confirmation that, yes, all those scientists studying sex at the turn of the century were, if not major pervs, at least a little on the kooky side.


Study: Divorce Is Contagious

Researchers working on a well-known continuing study of more than 12,000 Americans living in Framingham, Mass., since 1948 have found that divorce is contagious. The researchers, led by Brown University's Dr. Rose McDermott, "have discovered that divorce is catching and spreads like a disease through families, work places and groups of friends," the Daily Mail reported. If an immediate friend—or even a colleague—gets a divorce, the chance that you will also get a divorce jumps by 75 percent. The likelihood that you will divorce increases by a third if a friend of a friend's marriage falters. "The researchers describe the effect as 'divorce clustering'—and believe that break-ups within friendship groups force couples to start questioning their own relationships," the Daily Mail reported. "They say that a friend's divorce can also reduce the social stigma of splitting up, even when children are involved."
