Burning Love Season 2

I love Burning Love. It’s a spoof of the Bachelorette/Bachelor tv show. Season 1 (clip above) is amazing. Episodes are approximately 10 minutes, so there’s no excuse not to watch.

Well today is not only Comedy Wednesday here at Life Absorbed, but it happens to be the eve of the premiere of season 2 of Burning Love! Watch the season 2 trailer above. Get ready to see this hilarious group of male comedians fight for Julie’s (June Diane Raphael) heart by watching all of season 1 in preparation for tomorrow. Find them on twitter, facebook, and their official website.

Burning Love

I’m working on the last two Hawaii posts for you now (“Road to Hana”, and “Crossing Food of the List”) but it’s taking me so long because they are PACKED with details you will hopefully love.

In the meantime I’m just checking in to say, do you like the new logo? I’m trying to come up with a brand for LifeAbsorbed, and feedback is greatly appreciated. I also want to share a new web series I just found out about: Burning Love.

Click the link to see the most recent three episodes, and check out the trailer below:

It’s a spoof of the bachelor. It’s genius and crazy accurate. I find those reality dating shows so painful, but this spoof is so spot on. I can’t wait for episode 4! Find them on twitter, facebook, and their official website.

Weekend Guide Dec. 9 + 10 + 11

I’m sorry this is coming to you SO late on a Friday! I thankfully finished my jury duty week without being called in. If that’s not a reason to celebrate, I don’t know what is. Unfortunately, I’m crazy busy so this will have to be brief.

FRIDAY Dec. 9th

Eames: The Architect And The Painter opens this weekend, and judging from the trailer (see below), it’s going to be awesome! So if you get a chance you better see it… why not tonight?

Tonight at 9p, Jonathan Richman (featuring Tommy Larkins) will be playing downtown at The Smell for $15 at the door. Check out The Smell’s website HERE. If you think you aren’t hip, go to the Smell. You will feel WAY less hip then everyone else there, but later when you tell people “I went to The Smell.. no biggie” they will think you are infinitely cooler than you are. Everybody wins!

SATURDAY Dec. 10th

I’m so happy to announce that my favorite event of the year is happening in LA this weekend: the Renegade Craft Fair. It’s happening on Saturday and Sunday and you can bet my bippy (whatever that is), that I will be there at 10am (when it begins) on Saturday morning. It’s a great place to buy unique gifts for your friends and you can get there on the Blue line (?) of the metro. The money goes to help artists struggling in a rough economy, and their work is beautiful. They have prints, jewelry, crafts, clothing, furniture, and everything else you could ever want. I’m getting to bed early to be fully ready for tomorrow. It’s like my Christmas morning!

After you’re done Christmas shopping you should sign-up through Thrillist for their Hollywood Craft Beer Crawl HERE, on Saturday from 1-6p. It’s happening all through Hollywood, which means you can take the metro red line. $25 tickets gets you 8 craft beers… 8! That’s a steal! Plus for those of you new to LA it’s a great way to meet new people.

At night the Devil’s Drive-In is showing Die Hard! So die hard Die Hard fans should check it out. Especially if you’re sick of holiday stuff.

SUNDAY Dec. 11th:

The Nerdist Writers Panel this weekend is AWESOME! Paul Scheer, Rob Cordrry, David Wain, Ken Marino, Rob Huebel, Curtis Gwinn, and John Stern are attending. Did you read that list, it’s practically a Wet Hot American Summer Reunion! Such a rare occasion, you must go. It’s only $15, and it’s a Meltdown Comics (an intimate venue), 5pm and get tickets  HERE.

And of course you can always check out the Sunday Renegade Craft Fair 🙂

Happy Hump Day

It’s Wednesday and boy is this week going by slowly! Last night I got my exercise on, so I don’t have any new tales to tell (gotta detox-to-retox). But tonight I’m attending 2 bars around town and seeing some live music, so expect a more thorough update tomorrow.

Seeing as this week is building in anticipation for Halloween weekend, I thought I’d advertise some fun events happening around town this week. Of course I can’t hit them all, so you’ll have to tell me what was fun and what was a time waster. Input is greatly appreciated!

On Thursday, Echo Park Jazz is doing another session in their 826LA benefit series. It all goes down at 9pm tomorrow at Lot 1 Cafe (on Sunset). Find the event on their facebook page for details.

To get your fright on, check out Delusion. It’s an interactive guided story that is more like a play than a haunted house. Tickets are $40 on their website (which is pricy for me) but if you love a good scare and you’re sick of the Knottsberry/Universal Horror scene, it could be worth a visit. I have a friend going tonight and Ill have to relay her experience.

 

Goldstar is offering a deal on Queen Mary ‘s Halloween Tour with Haunted Mazes. $17 and it’s from 7p-midnight with Thursday, Sunday and Monday tickets still available.

While we are on the subject of this Halloween, I need to bring it up again because it sounds awesome: Drink + Hunt LA. $25 to participate if you join through Thrillist. It’s happening on Saturday in Santa Monica and includes 3 beers and specials as well as an after-party. Start assembling your team now and get your costumes ready!

Ronna & Beverly

If you hate all things Halloween and are looking for a good laugh instead of a scare, I have to recommend the Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre this weekend. On Friday one of my favorite comedy duos is performing: Ronna & Beverly. Ronna & Beverly are two female comedians portraying their Jewish mothers and it is always a good show. They usually have 2 celebrity guests and this month it’s Ken Marino (The State, Party Down) and Eliza Coupe (Happy Endings). They interview the guests about their love life and make them squirm, which is amazing to see. For $10, it’s totally worth it. Get tickets HERE before they run out!
