Stone premiered  ‘South of the Border’ a film that explores the social revolution in South America. The doc features many interviews between Stone and Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez

Following the screening, Stone attended an afterparty at Teatro Goldoni.

The party was hosted by Washington Life. We snapped the famous filmmaker with screenwriter Mark Weitrot.

Colbie Caillat & Why I'm the Worst Sister Ever

Big hug to my boy Tommy McFly from MIX 107.3 for hooking me and little Goff up with a very private concert with the mesmerizing Coblie Caillat.

Colbie  was so cute admitting that she’s still trying to overcome her fear of performing and speaking in front of  people. Say what?

Colbie sang fan favorites like Bubbly and Lucky to an intimate group of about 70 people comfortably packed in the Gibson Guitar Showroom downtown on G Street.  It was the perfect way to spend the afternoon although I officially deserve the ‘Worst Sister in the World’ Award.

Watch: MIX 107.3 Livestream of Colbie’s Show

While everyone was crazy over getting a pic with the singer… my little sis was ga-ga over getting a shot with Coblie’s hot song writing guitarist- Justin.

We nabbed him on his way out. He happily stopped to pose with my speechless, nervous  sister. Snap! I got it.

So I thought.

After he walked away… off to the next city perhaps we immediately turned to the digi cam for our ‘picture preview’.

It was then when the unthinkable was apparent. During my sisters ‘moment’ my memory card must have run out.

I am the worst sister ever.

OMG Extras… below check out my WUSA TV report with video of Colbie’s opening song ‘Realize’ and Q & A with Tommy McFly who asked the singer what the tattoos on her arm meant.

WATCH: Terence Noonan Speaks to NACE

For 2 hours he captivated a sold-out crowd from the National Association of Catering Executives giving them the skinny to selling their brand and getting media exposure.

In addition to working on special projects Terence is currently the  Supervising Producer of The Dr. Oz Show. Below, we asked my boy ‘T’ to share some of his top tips with OMG. You’ll want to print this out.

In other news, look for the launch of his new show ‘DC Cupcakes’  will air Friday July 16th!

Terence’s Top 3 Tips to Getting Your Biz on TV:

Tip #1: In three sentences or less, write out who you are and what you have to offer that is unique from what is already out there.

Tip #2:  Spend one week watching local and national TV– like from WUSA9 to The Today Show to Ellen. Educate yourself . Make a youtube video of yourself showing your expertise in action- let the power of the internet work for you. Insider Secret: Dr. Oz staff scours the internet when looking for potential guests for The Dr. Oz Show. 

Tip #3: Write up 3 pitches. Make sure they have a hook and think visual.  It’s all about the tease.. so fill in the blank when thinking of your pitch: “When we come back ___________” 

BONUS:  Come up with 3 stories form your life that you can use for interviews. Being a ‘relatable’ guest will make you more appealing to producers and the people booking the shows.

Spa World: Our visit to the Korean Bath House

One of the most amazing places in the area exists in Centreville Virginia. It’s called ‘Spa World’ and it’s not your average day at the spa. In fact, it’s a full blown Korean sauna known in my mom’s native land as a Jjimjilbang. I ventured there with my little sister Jenny, Colleen who is a high school pal I went to school with in Seoul and Spa World junkie Dannia Hakki. It was a stroll down memory lane (on heated floors) taking me back to my childhood in Korea.  Here’s the deal it’s basically a spa filled with a variety of saunas or poultice rooms: Amethyst Gem Room, Red Clay Room, Ice Room, Oak Wood Charcoal Room,  Red Clay Ball Room (my favorite, you lay in little balls), Blue Onyx Room and the  Salt Room (made of complete salt..ceiling and all).

There are classic spa services too. Manis, Pedis, massages.. but be warned they are the pressure point kind. Jenny and I got foot massages and let me just say I never knew my feet had so many nerves. Intense.

The public bath area (separated by gender) is where I have yet to venture into. Equipped with 5 different types of pools with high powered jets the bottomline you get in with bottom and all. I still can’t bring myself to jump in the bath in the buff.  No thanks. I’d rather be eating at the spa’s restaurant. Afterall, the prison inspired suits they gives us come with an elastic waist. It would be such a waste not to get the most out of it.  See pictures below along with this instructional video provided by yours truly.

The clay up close- it’s like the  Chuck E. Cheese ball pen for adults

 The golden key- ok it’s orange but it’s your ticket to everything.  At the end of your stay (which could be overnight since it’s open 24 hours) they scan your key for your total. Food, services everything is charged to the key. General day pass is $35.

 From the Korean restaurant there- a classic MILKIS!

Reporting for Angie’s Army this monday… 
Aviation Jubilee: Did you know Angie’s Army has it’s very own pilot reporter? Rob Edmonds is back and this time he’s going scouting in the skies. Rob tells us the Flying Circus Aerodrome and the Prince William County R/C Fliers got together to provide an afternoon of entertainment and education for hundreds of area Cub Scouts. It was to celebrate their annual Aviation Jubilee. The scouts were enthralled as vintage biplane acts and modern radio control demos filled the Fauquier Skies. They even got the chance to spend some time up close with the pilots and equipment.
