Figuring it out one date at a time.

What I’m learning is: there might be a science to dating, not to mention luck. Plus, a fair share of trial and error.  Obviously.  You watch mine all the time.  With that being said, I found a blog called The Date Experiment.  It’s brilliant.

In a world where social media sites are popping up like Starbucks in the 90’s and online dating is the new little black dress, it’s no wonder the rules have changed and the people are not quite what they seem.  Literally.  The best part about it is: We’re not alone!

Take Jazz Stanton, she’s 24 years old, college educated, independent, smart, funny, and…dun dun dun…SINGLE, but dating.  Her blog www.thedateexperiment.blogspot.com will cover her stories and those of other guest blog-daters willing to share. The Date Experiment covers issues such as Starter Chicks, Balancing Acts, Facebook Follies and Red Flags. And that’s just the start.

Dating can be a complicated guessing game. I’ve been burned, I’ve been liked, I’ve liked back, I’ve been blown off, I’ve…well, let’s not go there, but you get the point.  So has everyone else.  By all means share your dates and join in the world of give and take.  It’s the first step towards what dating is all about anyway, not to mention having fun, meeting new people and falling in love.  Why not make a few friends along the way.

With this summer’s Steve Carell and Tina Fey’s “Date Night”, Jennifer Lopez’ “The Back-up Plan” and Alyssa Milano’s TV pilot “Romantically Challenged”, dating is a big topic.  Not that I need to tell you this.  Party Girl Plus One is all about dating.  So what makes Party Girl Plus One different from these star studded movies and TV shows?

Well, before I get to that, let me share what LATime’s Patrick Goldstein had to say about “Date Night” which I think is relevant to the topic.

“Why did “Date Night’s” Tina Fey and Steve Carell go from great TV to a bad movie?” according to the LATimes article?  “At some point over the past decade, nearly every wing of television, from the HBO and Showtime pay channels to basic cable outlets like TNT and USA all the way to the Big Four networks, has generated a host of memorable comedies and dramas. Theories abound for why the renaissance happened in the 2000s. For me, the most persuasive explanation is HBO envy. After all, after raising the bar so high with “The Sopranos,” “Sex and the City” and “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” it was HBO that was rewarded with a hugely loyal audience.”

“At first, some network chiefs bitterly complained that HBO was stealing viewers simply by offering them nudity and violence. But when cooler heads prevailed, the channel’s rivals realized that giving their show runners the same creative autonomy as the creators of HBO’s shows could translate into better ratings and a whole lot of media heat.”

Shifting from movies to TV or TV to movies in Carell and Fey’s case, Goldstein is on to something.

Craig Bierko

When I first started thinking about doing a series covering my dating diary, I paid a visit to the Paley Center for Media in Beverly Hills.  I wanted to know what attempts had been made on the topic of dating, the stars attached, networks associated and ultimately their demise.

What I found was a whole lot of network (ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX) attempts on the subject of dating:  NBC – 2003 Alicia Silverstone and “Miss Matched”, CBS – 2006 Tom Cavanaugh and “Love Monkey”, FOX – 2008 Craig Bierko and “Rules for Starting Over”, not to mention ABC’s “Cupid”, the first attempt in 1998 with Jeremy Piven and second attempt in 2009 with Bobby Cannavale.  And yet ABC is making a third attempt on the topic with “Romantically Challenged” which follows a 30-something man who is torn in between his needy best friend and new girlfriend.

Here’s the thing.  I think ABC’s biggest challenge in trying to pull off another dating TV series is ABC itself.  In that I mean, what it takes to tell the full uncensored, down and dirty stories on dating and intimacy cannot be done on network TV.  We learned that by watching the success of HBO’s “Sex and the City” and Showtimes “The L Word”.  You have to show the real life juices, smells and train wrecks of dating; not the fabricated witty banter that has only lived in the writers room.  Sure the audience might laugh like the first time they hear a blonde joke, but it’s easily forgotten because it wasn’t relatable.

Juices, juices, intimate juices flowing through the characters, the series and the ratings.  Which brings me full circle to what Goldstein hit upon in his article and why Party Girl Plus One is different than any of the other current series covering the topic of  dating. When writers are given the freedom to write their series from their experiences, point of view and research and eliminate the censorship of a general audience network, what you get is true reality. True hits and a fully exposed comfort level that tells the audience, “You’re not alone.” And isn’t that what dating is all about anyways?  Not being alone.

Tattooed Millionaires

Bring on the Millionaires!

How do I pick the soundtrack of Party Girl Plus One? It takes a lot of sampling of music, however when I hear something that immediately grabs my attention, I bookmark it in my computer.  I know I’ll be back to grab it.

That’s the story with Johnny Jetson’s Tattooed Millionaires.  Johnny sent over a request to check out his music.  And I did just that.  I check out anyone who sends their work over to me; it’s an artist courtesy.  But there was definitely something about the Tattooed Millionaires that I liked.  I don’t know if it was the word Millionaires or the rock star commitment these guys drip in their pics.  But they look like a blast to hang out with, not to mention their rock solid music, and I mean that literally and figuratively.

With influences like New York Dolls, MC5, Motörhead, The Ramones, David Bowie, Black Sabbath, The Sonics, The Pretty Things, The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, The Rolling Stones and The Who among other great bands, the final sound is Ziggy Stardust meets The Ramones on Forbidden Planet.

Founded by Johnny Jetson in August 2004, the 2009-2010 lineup includes Johnny Jetson, vocals &

Johnny Jetson

guitar; Micheal Jennings, bass and Derek Warwick, drums.  A member of (ASCAP) since 1997 Johnny Jetson has written and recorded with such notable artists as Snoop Dogg, Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), Chris Verrna (Nine Inch Nails), Chris Holmes (WASP) and the Space Age Playboys.  Not too shabby.

The Tattooed Millionaires have been featured on LA’s Indie 103.1 “Check One…Two” show as well as 101.9 KFGO (The Box) “Rock and a Hard Place” show spanning the Upper Midwest area. They have been interviewed live on The Fox 99.3 in Vancouver, B.C. and Total Rock Radio in London, U.K. Their songs receive get airplay on radio stations all around the world.

March 2006 Europe in June/July 2006 Europe in November/Dec. 2006 U.S. National Tour Summer 2007 (30 States) U.S. National Tour Summer 2009 (22 States), they have also played such notable Los Angeles venues as The Troubadour, The Key Club, The Dragonfly, The Cat Club, The Spider Club, The Whisky & The Viper Room.

Nominated for 2 AVN awards for best movie soundtrack 2005 and 2007 Metal Awards Demo of the Year, Maximum Metal Magazine CPI Digital has named Tattooed Millionaires, the number one requested band by their clients.
