Obama 2012: The Dark Knight Returns

November 7, 2012

Election Night happened during my DJ gig at Little Fish – Huge Pond, located in Sanford, Florida.

My first time playing vinyl on Tuesday nights, I turned on the stereo system I received as a Christmas present back in 1991.  Check out the dust.

First, I played classical music, sounds that played surprisingly well with the election action on the bar’s television.

After playing three records, I played these albums: Chuck Mangione’s Love Notes, Madhouse’s 16  (an 80s jazz project by Prince) and George Benson’s In Your Eyes.   No one complained about the music, either.

Because everyone were Obama supporters, people cheered when he won.

As most Downtown Sanford bars were nearly empty, Little Fish still attracted people.

During his campaign, Mitt Romney possessed the audacity to appear in Sanford.


Knowing the racial climate over the Trayvon Martin incident, he chose to show his mug in the city.

I’m damned glad Obama won. All the GOP knows how to do is stir up bigoted white people and make the rich wealthier.

That talk of “Taking Our Country Back” annoyed me too.  Take it back from who?  Also, why is it just their country and not everyone else’s?  I am so sick of certain Americans behaving as if they’re entitled to everything.

Not only did Obama win the electoral vote, he won the popular vote too.

The Dark Knight has returned.

Lucky Buddha Night

October 5, 2012

The following pics are from a DJ gig at Little Fish – Huge Pond, located in Sanford, Florida.

This was my first time seeing Lucky Buddha beer.

I jumped into the fun too.

Outside, an argument happened across the street.

A cop showed.

Nobody got arrested. Soon, things went back to normal.

Current DJ Gig in a New Location

September 13, 2012

Recently, one of the bars I DJ in moved to another location.  I’m referring to Little Fish-Huge Pond in Sanford, Florida.

The beauty of the joint?  Unlike the last location, smoking is not allowed. Folks have to go outside and puff.

This is the view from my DJ spot.

This is the corner where folks play games.

The sound system is different too.  Two speakers sit high above everyone in the loft.

Also, through out the bar, speakers are located in the ceiling.

In the middle is Moire Wisdom, the bar’s owner.

This is her son, Harry.  As I work with Moire on Tuesday nights, I work with Harry on Wednesdays.

Enjoy the rest of the pics.

Losing Two DJ Gigs

August 7, 2012

Looks like I lost two DJ gigs…least hopefully for awhile.  Tuesday and Wednesday nights, I gig at Little Fish-Huge Pond in Sanford, Florida.  At the beginning of this month, the bar was scheduled to open in its new location.  That didn’t happen.  The bar isn’t at its old location either, meaning I have no gigs in Sanford.

 

I still have my Happy Hour spot in Orlando.  Yet, I’m going to miss the money I used to make in Sanford.

Good thing I had the foresight to save my pennies and find other spots for gigs.  Depending on one spot just isn’t wise.  You never know when you can all of a sudden lose it.

I really don’t know Little Fish’s future.  If it never opens again, I’m going to miss the spot that ignited my DJ career.
