Of course, outside of my freelancing realm, I actually take photos for fun. Whether it’s capturing the protests in front of the Fullerton Police Department or a day at the park, I enjoy covering what needs to be covered and finding fascinating stuff. Here’s a few things I’ve captured in 2011:
Last month, I had the pleasure to check out Paulie Pesh, which is this large Indie-ish ensemble. If you name an instrument, the band probably has it. Violins, trumpets, horns–it all meshes into some sweet rocking sound. Here’s hoping I will cover this lovely band in the future. If you haven’t downloaded their latest EP “Post Mortem,” check out this link.
I admit I’m quite superstitious, but I couldn’t pass an opportunity to see a member of N.W.A (It has no period in the end of the name, so don’t be yelling at me and saying it’s a typo!)–Arabian Prince. So I head to the Continental Room and I noticed that they had a new dancefloor. Nice dark wood paneling I must say. The guy who said he was the owner said that the Continental Room was almost done with its renovation and it’s looking good for them. The drinks are still pricey, but when you’ve got world-class acts like Arabian Prince and 2 Live Crew (I’m still kicking myself for not showing up last month) coming to Fullerton, the renovations are sure as hell worth it.
The music spinned by Arabian Prince and the other DJ’s were mostly 90′s hip-hop and R&B, so of course it was like back in the day when plaid shirts were in fashion (and they’re somewhat in fashion now). While I’m not much of a fan of 90′s hip-hop and R&B, I was ecstatic when they played “Return of the Mack” by Mark Morrison. Here’s some eye candy for you:

Sorry…I was supposed to upload this earlier, but some pressing issues happened.
Went to the Hibbleton Gallery to check out Jesse La Tour’s campaign headquarters (in the gallery) and took some photos. He’s betting on his youthfulness, his love of the city and his plan to expand arts in the city as reasons Fullertonians should vote for him. (Disclosure: I’m not a resident of Fullerton, so I have really no say.)
After the little ditty at Jesse La Tour’s campaign headquarters, I wandered around Downtown Fullerton and took some of these nice photos:

If you see this guy, give him some money. This guy can sing very well, I swear!
