Flowing wigs, judicious applications of lipstick and some strategically placed duct tape will all be used to transform students into drag queens at this year’s student drag show put on by Cal State Fullerton’s Queer Straight Alliance (QSA). The show will host 13 gender-bending queens and kings, all attempting to stun and dazzle the crowd with their acts. The annual drag show will take place Friday at 6:30 p.m. to 11 p.m. in the Titan Student Union Pavilions B and C. The QSA was created in

1973 in order to discuss and bring awareness to LGBT issues. In addition, it is meant to provide a safe space for students at CSUF who identify as part of the LGBT community and those who identify as allies of the community. “Bootylicious” was the title of last year’s show. This year’s horror theme has inspired the clever title of “Dragula: A High ‘Stakes’ Competition.” This year’s show will be slightly different from previous years. It will be the first time the show is horror themed and the first time it is held as a competition. A group of judges along with the crowd will have the opportunity to vote and eventually crown the best king and queen of the night. SEE DRAG SHOW, 6

Students are now able to get their packages from Amazon on campus through the Amazon Locker system added outside the Titan Student Union, which became operational Thursday. With Amazon Locker, users order items from Amazon as normal, then pick up their goods at a set of specialized lockers using a unique code that is provided to them in an email. They can also ship returns using the lockers. “The whole idea of the student union is for us to become the living room MARIAH CARRILLO / Daily Titan of the campus,” said Kurt The Amazon Locker system was installed near the north exits of Borsting, the director of the Titan Student Union and began accepting orders Thursday.

The Cal State Fullerton men’s golf team clinched its second straight conference title after emerging victorious at the Big West Conference Championships at the Soboba Springs Country Club in San Jacinto. The tournament lasted only two rounds after the final round was cancelled due to high winds, but regardless, the Titans walked away with the conference crown after two strong rounds, shooting an overall 2-over 578. The conference title is the first outright championship for the program since its reinstatement during the 2009-10 season. The Titans finished as co-champions with the Pacific Tigers in last year’s event. The victory also gives the Titans an NCAA Regionals bid, which went to Pacific last year after the Tigers defeated CSUF in a one-hole playoff. CSUF got off to a strong start by shooting a 1-under 287 and topping the leaderboards after day one. In day two, the Titans struggled slightly, shooting a 3-over 291, but it was more than enough to keep the team in the lead and ultimately giving the Titans the title since no final round was to be played. UC Davis finished in second with a 4-over 580, followed by UC Riverside, which shot a 10-over 586. In the individual aspect of the tournament, the Titans were quite impressive as they were the only program to place all five of their competitors in the top 20. Mark Anguiano finished tied for second with a 3-under 141 for the tournament. The senior’s first round 4-under 68 kept him in second, trailing first place by one stroke. In the second round, Anguiano shot a 1-over 73, allowing Nainoa Calip of Hawaii and Kyle Knapp of Cal State Northridge to catch him in the standings. It was Anguiano’s ninth top-three finish of the year. UC Davis’ Matt Hansen captured the individual title with a dominant performance, finishing with an 8-under 136. In the first round, Hansen shot a 5-under 67 to put himself in prime position for the title. Hansen was coming off a tournament win at the El Macero Classic, which also featured Anguiano in second place. SEE GOLF, 8

LOCKER Continued from PAGE 1

“One of the things we heard a lot from students is students that live in apartment settings that may be using Amazon for delivering packages, that idea of having that package sit at your doorstep while you’re in class made folks nervous,” Borsting said. “This is a nice security upgrade for folks that are using (the Amazon Locker system).”

“The whole idea of the student union is for us to become the living room of the campus.” KURT BORSTING Director, Titan Student Centers

Amazon will provide usage statistics that will show how frequently students

are using the lockers, Borsting said. “When students come back in the fall and we get the benefit of having had students for new student orientation come through the building, learn about all of our services and really get the year of momentum, that’s when we’ll have a really clear picture of ‘is this something that has added value to the campus community,’” Borsting said. “But we expect it will.” To find the Amazon Locker near the TSU, consumers can search for its code name, Vega, or search for an address or ZIP code in the CSUF area. Once they confirm that they have access to the locker, they will be able to use it as a delivery option when checking out. CSUF has a one-year agreement with Amazon to have the lockers on campus, and Amazon paid for the hardware and installation costs.

Shoe drive collects more than 1,400 pairs Organizers hope to turn collection into annual project MICHAEL HUNTLEY Daily Titan

The Cal State Fullerton College of Health and Human Development collected over 1,400 pairs of shoes, exceeding their goal of 1,000 pairs, for the “Titans Stepping Up” shoe drive to help youth and family agencies in the community. “I was really surprised, I was really pleased too,” said Michelle Berelowitz, director of the college’s Center for Community Collaboration. The drive started out slowly, and the students had collected 300 shoes with only a week remaining in the drive, which ended mid-April. Berelowitz was concerned that they would not meet their goal. Berelowitz then started a campaign called “One Pair, One Person.” Faculty from the Departments of Human Services, Child and Adolescent Studies, Kinesiology, Military Science, Health Science, Nursing, Counseling, and Social Work agreed to give out an extra credit point to any student who donated a pair of shoes. About 300 to 400 pairs of shoes were collected during the next round of collection, putting the college close to its goal. The next morning, when Berelowitz went to the collection boxes, they were overflowing again. Berelowitz went to a Human Services 350 class taught by Gary Germo, Ph.D., to ask for help with the shoe drive. Germo chose Titans Stepping Up as a leadership project for the semester. Students from the class promoted the cause by talking to people in their other classes

and outside the college. “They did a tremendous job,” Berelowitz said. “(Germo) helped them through the process of organizing, planning, group work and, you know, how do you go about making something like this happen.” Berelowitz and students helped collect the shoes, sort them, clean and disinfect them. They also labeled the shoes by size and by where the shoes were going. Shoes will be donated to homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, family resource centers, youth shelters, foster youth, school districts and social services agencies. Debbie Kaiser, Community Resource Coordinator of Acacia Adult Day Services in Garden Grove, was pleased with the results of Titans Stepping Up. “I wanted to express

gratitude from all of us at Acacia Adult Day Services for the wonderful selection of shoes we received through your Titans Stepping Up project. Honestly, they look brand new and we are most appreciative,” Kaiser said. The department hopes to make Titans Stepping Up an annual project. They hope to reach an even higher goal next year. Shay Skeete, a junior communications and counseling student, was one of the students in Germo’s class who helped with the project. She said the students were very happy with the results of the drive and hope to work on similar projects in the future. “(The class) wrote to our professor saying that we would like to this more. We want to do this every semester,” Skeete said.

DTBRIEFS Fire in La Habra leaves 11 injured An explosion in a chrome polishing plant in La Habra left 11 people injured Tuesday morning, according to the Orange County Register. Two out of the 11 injured are in critical condition. Four people suffered intermediate injuries, and five had minor injuries. Firefighters responded to the call from Gorilla’s Polishing at around 9:50 a.m. and got the fire under control by 10:45 a.m. Authorities have suggested lint and dust in duct systems caused the fire. The polishing company previously paid $1,975 in a January 2013 settlement due to violations found by the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health in a 2011 inspection. - SASHA BELANI

Sex assault task force issues goals The recently formed White House Task Force to Protect Students from Sexual Assault outlined goals to combat sexual assaults on college campuses in a 20-page report published Monday. The report urges colleges to change up their strategy in how they deal with reports of rape, according to the New York Times. Recommendations include conducting anonymous surveys about sexual assault cases, adopting anti-assault policies that have been successful at other schools and better enforcing security measures so reports of such crimes remain confidential. One in five female college students have been assaulted, but just 12 percent of attacks are reported. - SAMUEL MOUNTJOY

Tornadoes kill at least 35 in South The National Weather Service has warned roughly 70 million people living in the eastern half of the United States of slight to moderate risk of severe weather Tuesday. Risk areas stretch from south of the Great Lake to the Gulf of Mexico and east to the Atlantic Ocean. Tornadoes, high winds and hail were expected. Severe storms in Mississippi and Alabama have left tens of thousands of people without power. Deadly tornadoes that swept through the two states on Monday were expected to hit again. At least 17 people were killed in Mississippi, Alabama and Tennessee on Monday. Eighteen deaths were reported Sunday in Arkansas, Iowa and Oklahoma. - SASHA BELANI

University kicks off crowdfunding campaigns Four-part pilot program begins with engineering students MATTHEW MEDINA Daily Titan

Cal State Fullerton is experimenting with crowdfunding to provide campus groups and organizations with assistance in their major projects. University Advancement, which manages donation programs, has selected four projects as part of a pilot program that will serve as an experiment to see what funding goals can best attract potential donors. The projects were

selected for their potential to appeal to a wide audience, which helps attract smaller donations from a larger group of people—the essence of crowdfunding. “We had already been thinking about it, but it really was the idea, the synergy and the timing being right,” said Todd Frandsen, the director for annual giving at CSUF. The university chose the crowdfunding service WeDidIt because of its user-friendly interface and good functionality on mobile devices, Frandsen said. “Crowdfunding depends a lot upon ease of sharing the information about what you are raising money for,” he said. “(It’s important

to have) a platform that’s PC and Mac-friendly but also a platform that is mobile-friendly.” A team of 13 mechanical engineering students building an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) has agreed to participate. They have raised $1,630 of their $5,000 funding goal with 22 days to go. “As far as construction, we’re almost there,” said Javier Lichtschiedl, a senior mechanical engineering major and the leader of the team working on the UAV. “We’re looking within the next two weeks to be able to complete this plane.” The team members hope to fly their vehicle in the Student Unmanned Aerial Systems competition in

June. They received $8,000 in funding from the College of Engineering and Computer Science, and they secured sponsorships from local businesses to bring down component costs. However, paying for materials like carbon fiber, which is what the body of the plane will be made of, still proved expensive, and that made the prospect of traveling to Maryland for the competition seem out of reach. The team approached Hart Roussel, the director of development at the College of Engineering and Computer Science, who worked with University Advancement to have the team join the crowdfunding campaign.

“We’re kind of like the guinea pigs of this (type of) fundraising, but essentially, overall we want the university to end up using this method of fundraising (more),” Lichtscheidl said. “It’s very effective.” So far, one donor has pledged $500, which will allow him or her to attend the flight test and sign the UAV. “Even though I personally don’t know that person, I feel very thankful that they’re supporting us,” Lichtscheidl said. “In a sense, I feel like in the future, once I get a job or a career in the industry, I feel like I have the responsibility or I could have that same effect on a student, and the fact that someone cares

about us and what we’re doing really means a lot to me.” The next crowdfunding campaign will start May 1 to raise money for the Guardian Scholars Summer Support Fund. The fund will assist students who are enrolled in the program with paying expenses in the summer. Bridge to Success, a scholarship for student veterans, will begin accepting donations May 15. The D.C. Scholars program will begin a campaign May 22 to fund $1,000 scholarships for 10 students enrolled in internships in Washington D.C. over the summer.

Surgeries going overboard NICOLE WEAVER Daily Titan

Society places more value on aesthetics rather than substance

Plugged In Fake meat is tricky business ETHAN HAWKES Daily Titan

I’m not against eating vegetarian or vegan food, but anytime I eat with my vegetarian friends, I avoid the fake meat in favor of well-seasoned vegetables that taste like vegetables instead of poorly flavored gelatinous goop. But that changed a few weeks ago when I tried phony meat for the first time and actually enjoyed it. Usually I can spot the complete lack of taste and texture in most vegetarian meats, but the chicken wings at Native Foods,a restaurant known for serving vegan food, caught me off guard. It may have been the dipping sauce or the heavily battered mixture of soy, wheat and pea, but I was honestly fooled until someone pointed out it wasn’t “real.” I was finally on board with soy-based meat, but scientists want to take a more extreme route with real meat grown in labs. In vitro meat, the official name for synthetic meat, was constructed into the first hamburger and consumed in August last year by Mark Post, Ph.D., and his team at Maastricht University. Test tube meat uses cow stem cells to grow muscles fibers, which, in this case, was used to form a hamburger patty. Lab grown meat can bring a lot of benefits to the world. Farmland is valuable and meat doesn’t provide as much bang for your buck as crops do. “Cows are very inefficient – they require 100g of vegetable protein to produce only 15g of edible animal protein,” Post told the Guardian before the synthetic meat growing event in London. “So we need to feed the cows a lot so that we can feed ourselves. We lose a lot of food that way.” The test-tube hamburger turned out to be one of the most expensive hamburgers ever made at

$320,000, but the demonstration was more of a proof of concept than a testament to the cost efficiency of meat-free beef. However, that will improve. Post said early projections were that his lab meat could reduce the need for land and water by 90 percent and cut energy use by 70 percent. Showing that meat that does not consist of animal parts can exist is great, but I have my doubts it will completely stop the slaughtering of livestock anytime soon. Many humans have a craving for the best , and I can’t see anyone in the near future replacing a nice piece of New York steak for a birthday or anniversity, for test-tube meat. “The bite feels like a conventional hamburger,” said Josh Schonwald, a food writer who was lucky enough to be one of the three people to try the lab grown burger. Not the most promising quote, but a reminder that a meatless future is still a ways off. The benefits are obvious, but a yuck factor may prevent the public from embracing it. Los Angeles had a water treatment plant that took toilet water and purified it into tap water, but was shut down after approval due to public outrage. That was back in 2000, but maybe Americans have become more appreciative of science over the years. Sixty-nine percent of voters said they would eat synthetic meat, according to a Guardian poll with an unknown number of participants. But talk is cheap, the meat has to be purchasable for consumers before we see how people actually feel. Even though I love science and would love to try the meat, I don’t know if I can see myself putting synthetic meat into my diet. I may just stick with imitation fried chicken tofu, wheat and pea concoction meat.

It’s quite apparent that society has always valued beauty. Girls are taught at a young age that physical attractiveness and femininity are clear markers for what it means to be a “woman.” Images of beautiful women are projected constantly in mainstream media, subtly implanting ideas into the minds of young viewers who will then strive to attain what they see in movies and on TV. It’s no surprise that cosmetic surgery has become a facet of contemporary culture. Plastic surgery has been a cultural phenomenon for decades. The surgery has been used to correct cleft-palates, and even facial reconstructive surgery for those who have sustained major injuries, yet the concepts of plastic surgery have been elevated to new heights. People are actually using the process of “going under the knife” to physically transform themselves to be able to fit into designer heels, or designer jeans, by slimming down their thighs or surgically refiguring the size of their feet. Others get procedures to look like celebrities. But the end product is usually the same: the belief that plastic surgery will improve one’s life. The market for plastic surgery is huge because of its expectation to increase confidence in individuals as well as improve their lives. This is often an illusion to the patients who end up confusing real self-esteem with the approval of others about their appearance. People who turn to plastic surgery to fix

their problems may have deep-rooted psychological issues such as depression, which can temporarily be quelled by surgery. These people may think if they tweak parts of themselves they will be happier and more successful. We have created a market for it and transformed society into something that values appearance over ability. Celebrities are a perfect example of society’s inclination to hold physical attractiveness over mental competence. Female actresses are specifically chosen for roles that showcase their beauty. A prime of example of this would be the role Megan Fox plays in Michael Bay’s Transformers. Her “hotness” is the only

factor that makes her notable and valuable in the film. Putting celebrities on such a pedestal has propelled regular people to change their own appearances solely because they think it will also allow them the same attention. Valeria Lukyanova, is known as a “Real Life Barbie.” Lukyanova insists she’s using her looks to be a spiritual healer and teacher. She has been particularly popular with the media over the past few years due to her impeccable similarities to Mattel’s Barbie doll. Criticisms run rampant with Lukyanova, most of which question her intellect. But criticism against her is odd when so many

people are obsessed with beauty standards and augment their own bodies in different ways. Women in particular are expected to be perfect. Lukyanova may be an extreme example of what patriarchy and unrealistic beauty expectations can do, but what’s interesting is how she is reprimanded for it. Being attractive is seemingly more important than intelligence in U.S. culture. People even profit off their physical features. It should be no surprise that plastic surgery has skyrocketed to new extremes. If aesthetics continue to be valued over personal characteristics, society’s obsession with perfection will only continue to spiral.

Science of the Impossible Glow in the dark road not glowing GUSTAVO VARGAS Daily Titan

This week, I thought I would actually follow up on one of the things I covered in a previous column. I never do that, and I don’t want anyone to think that some of the innovative things I write about come into fruition without a hitch. Two weeks ago, I wrote a column about glow-in-thedark road markings in the Netherlands that would illuminate at night so there would be no need for streetlights. It was located about 100km south east of Amsterdam. I talked about how innovative and amazing the concept was. The road markings were unveiled earlier this month as a real-world trial so that they could really find out how practical the idea would be. I mentioned there would be complications the people behind the project might face. Unfortunately, this idea has not been as successful as I, or likely the people behind it, would have hoped for it to be. The glow-in-the-dark streaks located on the road

is creating the moisture. Basically the markings are not glowing as consistently as they need to be. They run into the problem where there is either not enough light or the light is not always as bright as it should be. “As expected, the ‘real life’ trial enables us to learn from the environment and users,” according to Heijmans. “We will use these insights to introduce an update to the Glowing Lines 2.0 version. In the meantime we have temporarily faded out the lining to prevent any confusing situations for road users.” However, they don’t plan to stop there. “As planned we are working on developing Glowing Lines version 2.0, which will be ready for this summer. It will then be introduced on a larger scale in the Netherlands and abroad.” The concept is still a work in progress. Hopefully after the kinks are fixed, the glow-in-thedark road won’t wash away after some water hits it. After all, not every good idea happens the first time around. The Wright brothers went through some trouble before they could really say they flew.

Students are constantly looking for different means to pay off their student debt, take a much needed vacation or buy a new car. One student has found a fun way to attempt to do just that. Cedrick Lopez, a Cal State Fullerton student, recently went on Let’s Make A Deal for the chance to win cash prizes, trips, cars and other covetable rewards. Let’s Make A Deal is a game show that airs weekday mornings at 9 a.m. on CBS. The show was first introduced in 1963. The current version aired in 2009. “(The show is) an updated version of the classic television game show, hosted by Emmy Award winner Wayne Brady, where audience members try to win cash and prizes by making wacky deals,” according to the Let’s Make a Deal website. The aspect of the show that sets it apart from other game shows is that the audience members wear costumes. They show up in costumes ranging from a banana to a hot air balloon. This was adopted from the classic version of the show. The contestants who are chosen are asked to “make a deal” with Brady. They must choose between curtains, several boxes or even cash outs that Brady can give. The contestants hope the curtain or box that they choose will have the biggest cash amount or prize inside. However, they must avoid the “zonks.” Zonks are the fake prizes that contestants hope to avoid. Zonks that have been on the show in past episodes have been a donkey riding a skateboard or a car made out of plants. The recently added component of the show is the “big deal of the day.” The contestant who wins a prize throughout the show with the highest dollar amount can give it all up to go for the big deal. The big deal is usually worth over $20,000 and there are no zonks, so most contestants take the

The Glass House in Pomona will be the next stop for Macaulay Culkin and his pizza-themed Velvet Underground tribute band, The Pizza Underground. The Pizza Underground is the creation of Phoebe Kreutz, Matt Colbourn and Deenah Vollmer, musicians of the East Village anti-folk scene. Glockenspiel player and vocalist Phoebe Kreutz discussed the band’s origins and their future plans in an interview with Vulture online. “It started in February 2012, when I was on tour with my husband, Matt Colbourn, and Deenah Vollmer, the pizza box player. This began as something that we were playing around with on tour just to pass the time on trains. Then when we got back to New York, we played a show with our friend Austin Kilham, who joined the band. And then we didn’t really do anything with it,” she said. Shortly after being introduced to Culkin through a mutual friend, the band began recording songs such as “I’m Waiting for the Delivery Man,” “All the Pizza Parties” and “I’m Beginning to See the Slice.” Vollmer’s boyfriend, Toby Goodshank, of The Moldy Peaches who also reinterprets pop culture artwork, mostly with paintings, co-founded the 3MB art collective with Macaulay Culkin. Goodshank will join The Pizza Underground during this weekend’s show. What initially started out as a joke seems to be drawing a committed fan base. As buzz about Culkin and his band grows incessantly on social media, the band continues receiving offers to take on additional live shows. In December 2013, a viral video of Culkin eating a cheese pizza was uploaded

to YouTube. Culkin was parodying Andy Warhol consuming a hamburger in Danish filmmaker Jorgen Leth’s 66 scenes from America, and promoting the debut of The Pizza Underground. The group released its first music video in January 2014, parodying various Velvet Underground songs such as “All Tomorrow’s Parties” and “Femme Fatale.” Culkin and fellow bandmates Colbourn (guitar, vocals), Kreutz (glockenspiel, vocals), Vollmer (pizza box, vocals) and Kilham (tambourine, vocals) are sure to deliver pizza-themed songs to new and existing fans during the show on Saturday. Because of their theme, the band’s been known to hand out pizza boxes to audience members who attend their shows and pizza is free for everyone in attendance during the show on a first-come, first-serve basis. Unlike other psychedelic

music during the era of The Velvet Underground, the messages and ideas behind the Velvet Underground’s music were considerably darker, more disturbing, and meant to be shocking and stark reflections on reality––songs on their debut album included “Heroin” and “I’m Waiting for the Man” (the man in this case being a drug dealer).

Daenerys is on a slave-freeing rampage. The city of Mereen marks yet another city from which she has liberated slaves. But it seems that with every city she liberates, her confidence grows— nearly to the level of cockiness—and with it so does her brutality. When she freed the first group of slaves, the unsullied, the only person that died was the main oppressor. Although, in this instance, killing him was only a sign of her wit. She offered him something that he could not refuse: a dragon. Blinded by the prospects of a dragon, he agreed to the exchange without realizing that handing over the slaves meant he was rendered defenseless. It also didn’t help that

the dragons only heeded to her call. In this instance, the bloodshed was minimal and calculated. In Mereen, the entire city revolted and killed multiple oppressors. Daenerys then had the oppressors hung in the same manner as she saw children hung on her way to the city. This time around, the bloodshed was brutal. Not only did she kill the oppressors but she had them up on display, almost as an exhibition of power. Across the sea in a boat Littlefinger revealed to Sansa the culprit behind Joffrey’s death. It doesn’t come as much of a surprise that Lady Olenna was behind the poisoning. She is a calculating old woman that seems to be two steps ahead of everyone else. She appears to have a plan for Margaery and her role in Westeros, and it will be interesting to see it play out. North of The Wall, the last couple seconds of the episode showed what the white walkers have been doing with the sacrificial

babies. For those that need a refresher, Crastos is the old man that impregnates his daughters north of The Wall. The female babies are kept and nurtured until they’re old enough to have babies of their own. Any babies that are born male are sacrificed to the White Walkers as a gift to deter them from attacking. This episode revealed that the White Walkers transform the human babies into zombies, or whatever it is that White Walkers are. It’s scary to think they have the ability to transform other species into their own. This might pose a big problem when the White Walkers finally breach The Wall. If they can transform babies into White Walkers, this might also mean they can transform adults as well. If this is the case, it’s bad news for the citizens of Westeros. Zombies versus dragons would be cool though. The takeaway from this episode: Don’t be a baby in this show.

APRIL 30, 2014 WEDNESDAY

The Becker to go back in time An ‘80s cover band will perform popular songs of a decade past MICHAEL CHEN Daily Titan

80’z All-Stars is coming to the Becker Amphitheater and bringing their ‘80s groove as they recreate the biggest hits from the era and pay tribute to hit songs. The group members themselves take on decade-appropriate personas as they call themselves after iconic ‘80s characters in pop culture. “My role is Nigel Naughty, lead singer. The rest of the lineup includes Devo 2.0 (George Castells) on bass, Q-Bert (Dan Franklin) on guitar and Karate Kid (David Lopez) on drums,” said Daniel Engstrom, lead singer of the band and avid ‘80s music fan. Engstrom said he enjoys ‘80s music as much as he loves performing the biggest hits of the era. “I appreciate all music and probably love the ‘80s most of all because it keeps me employed … I actually don’t listen to ‘80s much on my off time given that I get my fill on a weekly basis but really do love many of the bands,” Engstrom said. “Police, David Bowie, Van Halen, Prince are always favorites. It was a decade of one-hit wonders and we cover quite a few of those tunes. For example, ‘Take On Me’ and ‘Come On Eileen’ are always winners, and ‘Whip It’ is an iconic staple in the playlist.” The band was formed to pay tribute to the generation of pop music, one-hit

wonders and the second British Invasion that was played all over the radio during the time. “We came up with the name 80’z All-Stars because it encompasses the entire decade to which the band is paying tribute,” Engstrom said. “We strive to create a high-energy performance of all the songs played so I guess you could say we draw influences from the performance oriented shows of the ‘80s.” The ‘80s was a very inspirational time for today’s musicians. The youth that grew up in that era was exposed to

huge musicsensations like Queen, Journey and Def Leppard. Many of the bands that defined the decade’s music scene became legendary. Their music lives on today and can be welcomed in any venue. “The music covers various ‘80s artists, nothing original when we’re performing an 80’z All-Stars show,” Engstrom said. “Since we play only covers the inspiration is within the song.” Engstrom also founded an entertainment company, which he called “Mama Said Entertainment.” The company allows Engstrom to expand his musical

talents and allows him to open up his shows to a variety of different venues across the nation. “Mama Said Entertainment is the company I founded as a result of the popularity of the 80’z All-Stars,” Engstrom said. “Through my band connections over the years I’ve established booking relationships and am able to supply quality live entertainment to various clients.” The 80’z All Stars will be bringing their ‘80s flare to the Becker and is open to the public; ‘80s aficionados or not. They will take the stage at noon.

“A lot of people think that it’s something kind of off-the-wall, but once you see then you can really get the feeling of what drag is all about,” said Cody Montoya, a 23-year-old communications major and fifth year participant of the QSA drag show. “Rather than just dressing up like a woman, its a person putting on a brand new persona, and creating that illusion for the crowd.” The event has given many aspiring CSUF drag queens their first chance to perform on stage and develop their alter-egos and personas. The show provided Montoya and a few his friends their first chance to perform in drag during his freshman year. The performances will generally be lip-synced version of pop songs but are not limited purely to these

types of acts. A normal drag show can also include monologues, skits, dancing and much more. The drag community in Fullerton and Orange County is one that is fairly large and continually growing. Some of the community’s growth can be attributed to Adore DeLano, a Southern California native and contestant on the current season of the popular drag-based reality television show RuPaul’s Drag Race, who has recently inspired more Orange County residents to attempt drag. The QSA hopes the stilettoed, sequined and sexually ambiguous event raises awareness for the LGBT community, according to their mission statement. Tickets for the “Dragula” drag show will be available for $7 at the door. For more information on the event, visit the LGBT Resource Center located in the Titan Student Union or visit the show’s event page on Facebook.

Titan comeback falls short Baseball couldn’t recover from a four run fourth inning JOSEPH ANDERSON Daily Titan

AMANDA SHARP / Daily Titan The Titans rally in a pre-game huddle. The Titans will return to Anderson Family Field to face the UC Davis Aggies this weekend.

CSUF softball hosts Aggies in critical Big West Conference series Sophomore Missy Taukeiaho leads the Titans batting .415 JOHNNY NAVARRETTE Daily Titan

The Cal State Fullerton softball team returns to Anderson Family Field as it hosts UC Davis in a Big West Conference matchup this weekend. On Saturday, the Titans and Aggies will play a doubleheader with the first game starting at 4 p.m. and second game starting immediately following the end of the first. The final game of the series will start Sunday at noon. CSUF (27-20-1, 8-7 Big West) has struggled as of late, going 1-3 in its last four games, including a series loss to Cal Poly San Luis Obispo that dropped the Titans into fourth place in the Big West. With the season winding down, the Titans have a chance to finish strong starting with a struggling UC Davis team. Sophomore third baseman Missy Taukeiaho has been a complete nightmare for opposing pitchers, batting .415 with 15 home runs and 39 runs batted in. Her 61 hits on the season lead the team. Junior first baseman Eliza Crawford has provided another power option for the Titans, hitting 10 home runs of her own with 28 runs batted in and a .270 batting average while senior shortstop Gabby Aragon is batting .294 with six home runs and 28 runs batted in. In the circle, Christina Washington is 9-5 this season with a 3.88 earned run average. The freshman has 48 strikeouts in 108.1 innings pitched. Jasmine Antunez is 10-9 with a 4.05 earned run average. The sophomore has struck out a team-high 90

batters in 109 innings this season. The Aggies (17-29, 6-9 Big West) enter the series having gone 3-5 in the last eight games. Kelly Zboralske leads the team with six home runs and 22 runs batted in with a .292 batting average. Lauren Sanders is second on the team with five home runs and 19 runs batted in. Christa Castello leads the team with a .299 batting average and has knocked in 18 runs. Pitching could very well be the deciding factor in the series as the Aggies pitching staff looks to be overmatched versus the Titans high-powered offense. Dana Cruse is 9-9 this season with a 3.66 earned run average. In 107 innings, Cruse has struck out 50 batters. Andrea Reynolds leads the team with a 3.13 earned run average but is only 3-6 this season. Last season, the Titans dropped two of three to the Aggies on the road with every game being decided by one run. On Thursday, the Titans welcome Santa Clara for a non-conference game at 6 p.m. The Broncos (7-30, 2-7 West Coast Conference) have lost six of their last eight games. Despite the struggles, Santa Clara features a solid offense led by Stephanie Fisher and Kelly Scribner. Fisher is batting .374 with three home runs and 16 runs batted in while Scribner has a .288 average with six home runs. This season, the Titans are 19-12 at Anderson Family Field and will look to continue their success in front of their home fans. For more information on the CSUF softball team and all Titan Athletics, go to FullertonTitans.com.

It was another brutal loss for the Cal State Fullerton baseball team on Tuesday night at Goodwin Field, falling 6-5 to the visiting Toreros of San Diego. Freshman Phil Bickford took the hill for CSUF and dominated the Toreros hitters early on before running into trouble in the fourth inning. After throwing three innings without allowing a single hit, the freshman phenom ran into trouble as the San Diego hitters began to time his pitches. The Toreros tagged the Newbury Park native for four runs in the inning, courtesy of three hits, an error and a hit by pitch. The big blow came when junior Jesse Jenner bounced a routine grounder back to Bickford, but the ball was misplayed and San Diego’s first run came in to score. The floodgates opened after that miscue, as a single, fielder’s choice and double brought in three more runs to give the Toreros a 4-2 advantage before the Titans even knew what hit them. As rough as the fourth inning was for CSUF, the fifth wasn’t much better. Three straight singles off of Bickford produced a run for San Diego, as junior Andrew Daniel drove in the run with a shot up the middle to put the Toreros lead at 5-2. The sixth run came around to score on an errant throw from senior catcher Jared Deacon on a stolen base attempt, giving Fullerton a four-run deficit. Bickford only lasted 4.1 innings on the night while allowing six runs total, only three of which were earned. Coming into the game, Bickford had not allowed more than three runs in any game this season. “You just gotta come out each day and get better,” Bickford said. “As a whole, this team just wants to win.” The Titan bats got going early on Tuesday evening, after a double by junior third baseman Matt Chapman and an intentional walk to junior J.D. Davis set the stage for sophomore David Olmedo-Barrera.

AMANDA SHARP / Daily Titan Pitcher Phil Bickford only lasted 4.1 innings in the 6-5 loss to San Diego on Tuesday. The freshman gave up six runs, three earned and only struck out one batter. Bickford’s record now sits at 3-3.

Olmedo-Barrera cashed in on the scoring opportunity with a line drive single into right field that brought in the game’s first run. The Titans added to their lead in the bottom of the third inning, when Davis brought in Chapman to give the home team a 2-0 advantage. However, once San Diego got their offense going, the Titans completely shut down until the bottom of the sixth. Sophomore second baseman Jake Jefferies came up to the plate and drove in a run with an RBI groundout to shortstop, before sophomore outfielder Tyler Stieb grounded out harmlessly to end the scoring threat. The top of the eighth inning presented yet another opportunity for the Titans to take the lead, but again their offense failed to get the big hit. With Stieb and senior shortstop Keegan Dale on second and third, Chapman drove in a run with a sharply hit ground out to the Torero third baseman. Davis followed that up with an inning ending groundout right back to

the third baseman. Errors continued to be an issue for the Titans, which made it more difficult for the subpar offense to stage a comeback. CSUF was given one more golden opportunity to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth inning, with junior outfielder Clay Williamson on first base and sophomore catcher A.J. Kennedy at the plate. The Anaheim native laced a double down the left field that would seemingly knot up the score at six apiece. However, the Toreros executed a perfect relay to gun down Williamson in a collision at the plate. After the dust settled, the Titans were left stunned as their last hope grounded out to first base to end the game and their comeback.

“I thought we had a couple of defensive miscues that gave (San Diego) four or five outs in the inning, which came out to hurt us,” acting Head Coach Mike Kirby said. “We hit some balls hard and some guys got good at-bats, but sometimes that’s just how the game plays out.” The Titans immediately return to action tomorrow night when they take on the Fresno State Bulldogs, a team that defeated them, 2-1, in 16 innings just one week ago. “We just have to take all of the positives from today and come out tomorrow with the same approach,” Bickford said.
