the nightman cometh: again.

with one comment

the lovely amanda reyes and I went to see ‘it’s always sunny in philadelphia: the nightman cometh’ – the musical type spectacle once again last night at the hollywood palladium. but first, we dominated some huge sushi. literally, it was enormous. then we drove down to la, in record time, of course. as for the show, it was quite a different experience than last time…this time it was a huge event, soooo many people…it was so hot inside, and plenty of mean security guards, blah blah. but we stood on the stairs and had a sweet view. we got to see a special clip from “it’s a sunny christmas” or something like that. it was completely outrageous. AND, to top it off, the whole crowd got to see a full new episode of sunny that hasn’t aired yet. it was pretty awesome. the show itself, was very similar to before, but they added a few things. it was great. the crowd was rowty and way into it. so overall it was another fantastic night. I took some shots with the canon g10, so here goes. and yes, that’s right – the mcpoyle’s were there. go ahead and weep.

I haven’t had a chance to shoot much lately. we’re only two weeks into the session and I’m already swamped with work. so to put myself at ease, I took photos documenting my entire day on monday, in timelapse style. to warn you, it might be the most boring 3 minutes of your life. however, people keep watching it. so, here’s how my monday went down.

so. many moons ago, my dearest friend jeff johns informed me that his friends were coming to town in april to play a show. that show was monday night. the night before, jeff reminded me of it once again, and decided I’d be able to make it. so we drove from ventura to hollywood in an amazing 1 hour 10 minutes. we left at 6:20pm. no traffic. not sure who was looking down on us then, but we were definitely thankful. just ridiculous. so we hopped on over to the troubadour, met up with the hockey team (pun intended) and walked down the street to have absolutely delicious food at flavor of india. mmm. then, the show. let me remind you that A) I am not a music photographer, B) no flashes allowed (had to practically beg to use my camera at all), C) it was just a tricky shooting situation. just me and my d700 + 50mm f/1.8…this is what happened.
