Sign Me Up!
My friend Tilo opened a gym soon after we left Munich in 2008. It appears MTMT is thriving. I can see why as I just viewed their "Master Trainers." Sign me up. I might even fly to Munich just for a training session. Whoa.

Guten Tag A & F
Abercrombie & Fitch continues their assault on the European market with an opening of a flagship store in Munich. I don't know anybody personally who shops at the retailer anymore in the U.S., so it only makes sense A & F pushes their goods in Europe. Though, now there will be no reason for them to flock stateside to stuff their suitcases with flip flops and silly Ts.

Cher's Woman's World Sounds Promising!
We've been waiting for new material from Cher for years. Finally, there's news in the form of a sound bite from her new song, "Woman's World." Sounds promising. Very promising indeed.

Congrats Original Clue Crew Finalist!
I met Scott Blokker over 10 year ago when we were auditioning and made the finals for Jeopardy's Clue Crew. A few years later, I found out he's gay. We've talked a few times but nothing consistent. So I was surprised today to learn he married Shaun T, the former Mariah Carey back-up dancer and trainer behind the popular Insanity workout routine. Congrats Scott. I'll be giving you a call in 3, 2, 1...

PTT Finds One Arm Push-up Cube Solver
Some people are just too bored. Though, he obviously spends time in the gym.

Something I Need 2 Learn
Chicago Fire starts tomorrow night, Wednesday, on NBC. I don't know if I'll watch the show as I'm not a fan of this genre. But Taylor Kinney makes me think twice about potentially setting my DVR. Though, I don't think I'm allowed as you can't record more than two shows at one time. So because of ABC's line-up, and the CW's new Arrow, I might have to just find Taylor on the streets of Chicago - inviting him back to my swingin' pad.

Bitter, Party of Five Says it All
Hollywood can be a bitch - especially pilot season. Just when you think you've landed a network show, you find out either you didn't test well, you were replaced, they're recasting the show or it got dropped all together. Talk about a mental fu*k.
So I appreciate Bitter Party of Five. In short, the YouTube clip features five actors who find out their network dreams are killed by corporate America. The first episode is fairly laugh free, but their persistence shows promise for upcoming webisodes where the actors interview fellow thespians - capturing their anxiety towards the Hollywood waiting game. Check it out below.

A Weekend of Firsts
1) I experienced Chicago's famous Wiener Circle at 2 a.m. If you're looking for an hot dog with a side of insult, this is the place to be.
2) I sipped a Starbuck's Pumpkin Spiced Latte. And because it was ordered with four shots, my hot beverage gave me a caffeine headache.
3) I actually skipped the gym.
