News Fullerton Nightlife
Fullerton is hopping. On a recent outing the Fullertonian stopped by the Back Alley on a Tuesday night at about 10:30. The place was bumping and the vibe was groovy, everybody getting along. The band, Dig, is a power trio and they were on fire (not literally).
I was kind of sad that I was only there to take pictures. The F:M ratio was 1:1 and the crowd was peppered with cuties. Some girl was celebrating her birthday and in recognition of that fact got on stage with the band to cover a hip-hop song. She spat verse like she was waiting her whole life for this, but she wasn’t. She was just walking around and dancing with here friends, but when asked, answered. This scene is typical of many nights in downtown Fullerton. The proximity of live music shows any night of the week is one of the highest in the county because you can walk between all the bars. But what makes Fullerton so special? Is it the bands? The food? The historic buildings? What makes a town a town? What makes Fullerton the hub city of North OC? Join the online life of the town at TheFullertonian.com and you will be able to discuss this with others.

Bottoms Up World What is the City’s Effect on Business? How would you rate the city’s performance on nurturing growth in local business prosperity? Bankruptcies have gone from around 15,000 in 2005 to almost 150,000 this year. Is it important to have local, profitable businesses? Is the current economic climate good time to make sure new kitchens close by midnight and that no lines are longer than 25 people? Central banks world wide are in crisis mode. Our federal government is spending more than it has on the space race and several wars to pump the economy. Is now a good time, as some have suggested, to ensure that restaurant staff wear the same uniforms throughout the day? Join the discussion online at www.thefullertonian.com.
Born in Detroit, but now living in Orange County, I retain much of my industrial city sensibilities and illnesses. Some of the imagery in my work is drawn from the dark, the oily, the cold, the ugly and the fearful aspects of Detroit. These elements are an unlikely comfort that harkens to the backdrop of my childhood… and finds a home in the undercurrent of my work. I often depict modern industry, politics, and contem-
porary cultural references in my work which creates an interesting clash with classical styles and iconography.
I suppose that my work sometimes takes a harsh stance on the themes depicted and can seem dark or dreary. When people see my work, though, I’d like them to see it with a sense of underlying hope… while also understanding the murkiness of promise.

Happy Independence Day! The economy is rough, but many politicians and economists agree that it will be small businesses that make most of our nation’s jobs available to the people. On June 16th at Capitol Hill; House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said, “…[Small businesses are] the engine of job creation and capital creation in our economy and in our country. Small businesses have created two-thirds of new jobs, over the last 15 years”. Small companies can sometimes get caught up in the mistake of micro-managing every piece of the business operation, but we at The Fullertonian believe that the only way to thrive is to constantly get more people involved. That’s the essence of job creation! I mean we’re hard workers, but sometimes we just want to kick back and be a vegetable for a few hours. That’s where the jobs trickle in. * Sales - We have sales jobs available for those looking to make a little cash on the side. Reps will be selling ad space on our paper for commission only, but speaking from personal experience it’s a lot nicer than selling time
