Good morning from Huntington Beach everyone! To quote Simon Le Bon from Duran Duran… “Play me something… funky!”
It’s 9 days and one wakeup before Christmas in Orange County and being a wedding photographer that loves Loves LOVES music, I wanted to share something unique and different for you. As I’m sure you know, I have very eclectic taste in music and it spans from everything to Blue Grass (Old school blue grass – not country) t0 classical, rock, techno, trance and more.
I’m a pretty big fan of the Black Eyed Peas and Fergie, so as I was humming “The Time” in my head this morning, I wondered if there was any Christmas music from the Black Eyed Peas. Sure enough! A totally funky live performance of the Black Eyed Peas on Oprah‘s program. Yeah!
The Black Eyed Peas are a big inspiration for me too. They come from the school of hard knocks, had a dream, busted their chops and were tenacious enough to make their dreams a reality (Not to leave out their breaking the rules in conceptual fashion & performances too!). I know exaaaaaaaaactly how that feels. Coming from the a-typical “American” family, I’ve done my best to chart a path that I can call my own since I was 6 years old. Granted it takes 20+ hour days (sometimes 7 days a week), massive sacrifices and a deep in my heart purpose. What I do is synonymous with what I love and is synonymous with who I am. I live, eat, breath, creativity. The hairs on the back of my neck stand up every time I come up with something new and when I am shooting – I’m in my “happy place.”
But before you check out this week’s West Coast Wednesday Video Of The Week and you’re thinking… Hey – I’d really like to get to know this Huntington Beach Wedding Photographer that totally digs the Black Eyed Peas, fashion AND share a plate of Nachos & Newcastles with my friends (all encompassing of clients, friends, vendors and people I love to hang out with), feel free to contact me anytime.
So without further ado, I give you the Black Eyed Peas in a live performance of “The Time” and “Little Drummer Boy” on Oprah along with the original video of “The Time.” So feel free to sit back with your favourite beverage during your morning and enjoy the video.
Have an Fergalicious West Coast Wednesday and also remember to make it a totally Fergalicious one for someone else too – cheers!
