Below is a link to Business Insider’s list of TV show return dates!

2015 LIST


Happy New Year!

New Year 2015 formed from sparking digits over black background

Good morning readers,

Happy New Year! Can you believe that it is 2015!? I know it’s cliche and everyone says it but the year has flown by so fast. Many, many THANK YOUs to all of our readers for your continuous support.

We hope you all had a great year! If not, we hope that 2015 brings you everything that you didn’t get in the year prior. I know that I am definitely wishing that this year goes a lot smoother than 2014. I’m not making any New Year resolutions because it is hard to keep those. I will, however, create small goals throughout the year. Like, paying off both credit card bills and getting a car (hey! a girl can dream, right!?)

I hope that in this year to come, you make mistakes.
Because if you are making mistakes, then you are making new things, trying new things, learning, living, pushing yourself, changing yourself, changing your world. You’re doing things you’ve never done before, and more importantly, you’re Doing Something.
So that’s my wish for you, and all of us, and my wish for myself. Make New Mistakes. Make glorious, amazing mistakes. Make mistakes nobody’s ever made before. Don’t freeze, don’t stop, don’t worry that it isn’t good enough, or it isn’t perfect, whatever it is: art, or love, or work or family or life.
Whatever it is you’re scared of doing, Do it.
Make your mistakes, next year and forever.

― Neil Gaiman

Happy Hanukkah!

That LA Writer Menorah

Good afternoon readers, I hope you are having a good Tuesday.
Happy first day of Hanukkah to those who celebrate!

Hanukkah/ Chanukuh/ Festival of Lights

These eight days are to commemorate the rededication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt, lead by Judah Maccabee, against the Seleucid Empire in the 2nd century BC. It was believed that there was only enough consecrated oil to last one day, but to their surprise it lasted eight days. That is why this celebration is observed for that period of time. Hanukkah is also to remember the Jewish people’s struggle for religious freedom and the survival of their religion.

Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day


Today we remember and honor those who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor.

Seventy-three years ago this morning, the Japanese Navy attacked the United States naval base in Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. That day we lost 2,403 American military personnel and civilians and 1,178 others were injured.

How cool is this? I had to share this flashback of our city.

A 9/11 Remembrance

9-11-memorial-museum-dedication-ceremonyThese post are always the hardest to write or even post. Simply because I believe there really is no words to describe the tragedy that struck our great nation on September 11th, 2001.

Being from Upstate New York, I was close but not close enough to be really in the heart of what was going on. I still remember the day though, just like yesterday. I was still in elementary school, I believe 4th grade. My principal’s voice rang over my head via the intercom, telling us that something horrible happened in New York City and that it was not for him or for our teachers to tell us. This was because of our close-ish proximately to NYC; many of us could of had family living or working in the city.

School basically ended after that announcement because parents started to flood in. It was like the whole world wasn’t safe anymore, especially for us children, we were all left in the dark. Thankfully, my mother was able to get off of work early and pick me and my cousin up from school, because it was turning into a ghost town. I remember us both questioning her intensely on the way home and not being able to fully understand what was happening.

We arrived home and immediately my mother turned on the television, we quickly understood everything.


Even though these post are hard to write, they must be expressed. We cannot forget that time in history or those we lost.  I sadly had a distant cousin pass away on 9/11, David M. Weiss. He was a father, husband, friend, first responder and firefighter that happened to in the North Tower on the 30th floor, when the tower collapsed. It has been said that he received a “Mayday” to evacuate, and David responded, ‘No’; because there were people on the 50th floor who needed his help.” Shortly after that radio transmission, the tower collapsed and nothing belonging to him was found in the aftermath. I sadly never met David or the family that he left behind, but the older generations of my family spoke of him.

Sixth Sense Actor Haley Joel Osment – Unrecognizable in DTLA

WN_Haley_Joel_Osment_ml_140910_4x3_992The little cutie Haley Joel Osment, who stole our hearts in Sixth Sense, was recently pictured in DTLA filming the new movie called Yoga Hosers, looking quite different since the last time we’ve seen him. Basically, like a completely different person.

As you can see from the picture above, Osment gained weight, grew a moustache and grew out/colored his locks for the role. That is some dedication! His role in the movie is apparently playing a Nazi mobster of some sort? Nailed it.

Kevin Smith wrote and is directing the film while his daughter, Harley Quinn Smith stars in the film along side Johnny Depp and his daughter Lily-Rose Depp.

According to the film’s IMDB page the movie is about, two teenage yoga enthusiasts teaming up with a legendary man-hunter to battle a ancient evil presence that is threatening their major party plans.

The film is due to be released sometime in 2015.
