WPRK Live and Strolling Down Mills Ave.

October 23, 2012

Last Friday, after my Happy Hour DJ gig at The Peacock Room, WPRK Live happened.  WPRK radio station exists on the Rollins College campus, located in Winter Park, Florida.

First, let’s take a trip outside.

These are your door greeters.

 

There wasn’t a cover charge.  Yet, donations were encouraged,

The guy in black possessed one of those black light pens.

See the dollar bill on the far left?

 

With Photoshop Elements, I’ll add some contrast.

Yep, that spot above the letter E is  human “fluid”.

 

Joey Mo as the Gangnam Style Guy, Chris Mendez as Martin Luther Bling and Casey Van Buren as Tree.

 

Kris Kokopelli, a cool guy.  One night, he invited me over to him and his girlfriend’s  crib.  As he spun music, I drunk rum and coke.

 

Dude with the headphones is Dennis Mero AKA ThinkDifferent.  Before I stared DJing, Dennis worked three events for me.

I didn’t get the DJ’s name.  My bad.

 

Later I walked Mills Ave. to Lil Indies.  I was expecting to hear 90s soul music.  Yet, found out I came on the wrong night.

Jeff Johnson, Hao Do and Joshua Nye.  Jeff plays bass.  Hao and Joshua are known by their DJ names as Chairman Hao and Sleepy Hippie.

Some folks wanted photos with me.

After a brew at Lil Indies, I walked to Wally’s.

After another brew here, I called it a night.

A Central Florida Fall Festival

October 9, 2012

Last Sunday afternoon, I attended the Maitland Rotary Art Festival.

Maitland exists next to North Orlando.  On the way to my Peacock Room Happy Hour gig, I drive though here and pass by Lake Lily, the spot where the festival takes place every year.

There’s a fall festival and and a spring festival in Maitand.  Surprisingly, someone recognized me as DJ Stone Crazy during a spring festival.

As for the art, I didn’t get many photos. Besides, some artists give non-friendly looks towards people photographing their work.

Because I rarely carry much money on me, I avoided buying food.

Usually, I head for the booze.

After viewing the festival, I walked to Maitland Library’s book sale.

For a dollar, I bought these two literary gems.

That’s right, two great books for a dollar.

The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo by Stieg Larsson, the freaky Swedish mystery.

Smack by Melvin Burgess, known as Junk in other countries.

As I read these books, I know just the music to listen to, especially since Smack takes place in Bristol, England.

Tricky, the king of trip-hop from Bristol.

Like I mentioned earlier, Maitland hosts  a fall festival and a spring festival.  A book sale happens during the spring festival also.  I’m looking forward to the spring.
