Yesterday I went to the Young Hollywood Roundtable at AFI Fest in Hollywood, it had some up and coming stars discuss their work and life in the industry.  Pictured above from the left, it featured Jena Malone, Logan Lerman, Joey King and Jenny Slate.  All were focused, articulate and bright, and it was a fascinating discussion aptly moderated by Amy Kaufman.  The excellent AFI Fest continues through November 13th, for tickets and more information visit afi.com.

    Last night I went to a really fun, fast-paced event -- a stand-up comedy event with a twist.  Stand-Up on... More.

    I saw singer/songwriter Ethan Johns at The Mint last night in Los Angeles.  He has a deep, soulful voice, plays masterful guitar, and writes darkly poetic lyrics.

    The Pod Hotel, Manhattan

    Just got back from a quick weekend trip to New York City, what a fun town.  I stayed at the adorable Pod Hotel which is super convenient.  It's right on 51st Street between 2nd and 3rd Avenues in Midtown Manhattan.  The rooms are the size of a dorm, but it's clean, very reasonable and right in the middle of things.  Check out Buttercup Bakery on 2nd Avenue nearby too!

    Today I attended an advance screening of The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby:  Them directed by Ned Benson starring Jessica Chastain and James McAvoy.  This introspective, somewhat unsettling film studies a married couple after a tragic event affects them, and how they each cope, separately and together.  Nicely acted, a moving, heartfelt film.

    There's a new ice cream and pie shop called Atticus across from Westside Pavilion on Pico and Westwood Blvd. in West Los Angeles. Yummy homemade tasting small pies and ice cream. Just had a soft opening recently so they will be getting more flavors soon.  Delicious!
