thursday is the new HNL night at next door. HNL... you know, like the airport code for honolulu. HNL, like, you know... only local artists.
the grand opening featured the return of the princess of waimanalo, maria remos. ya, you remember her. she was on a journey around the world for the past few months. when you see her, ask her about her trip.
we missed you princess
it was also time for tancis to turn 24. it's about time. zana made the cake... LUCKY!
lately i've been having strange visions that my life is almost over. don't ask. but i was sitting under this fan and had to move.
sporting the kicks that only the island's most fabulous have right now.... COLINS! what!
maria's rockstar brother sean
nice evening. now it's friday... remember when i told you patrick was gonna cruise out here? YA! he's here! and he brought some friends. and they're gonna skate. skate skate skate.
tonight they're gonna skate a'ala. but...
brian young was the team manager for hellrose. as in deej! act like you know.
billy and brian were also on the 9th floor at the hilton. or was it the 19th? crap i can't remember. but ya.... just saw them last week now they in MA HOOD.
i think i might have been spelling jeremy's name wrong this whole time. i think it's gereme? or geramy? or..... shit. MISTER STRENGTH!
begging it not to rain too hard.
aw bryan is so cute i could just pluck him out of the skate park and use him as a hood ornament. sorry that i couldn't get this shot too well... what was this called again? whale... something.... CRAP! i forget.
back to preparty with patrick and his buddies. greeted by billy with mister skull.
yes a demonstration is appreciated.
this is johnny and anthony. they have never been to oahu before. johnny requested some lady friends to occupy the hotel space.
i was happy to oblige. those lucky bastards got MISSY.
missy and ten of her hot squealing friends. i am in LOVE.
missy to terell: "as long as it's bigger than this"
WHY is is so necessary for them to always do this.
brian young sequence
baby i'd love to see the day you trade that thing for a martini
missy i love you. i love your friends too.
anthony has a girlfriend but he was still super cool and hung with us. AND he's on birdhouse. kudos all around.
*dying* to see brian's shots
hypnotiq. it's how we roll. what.
getting scooped by terell
time to roll this posse to the hard rock. look hard. this was an incredibly difficult shot to get. "everyone look up! and HOLD STILL!"
ha ha terell was so cute with his smiley exclamation "holy HELL we rollin so DEEP right now!"
watering the convention center
spilling into the hard rock. straight to the dance floor
hey! it's overexposed maleko!

got all stoked on this girl from poland cruising outside. so stoked that she wanted a pic with me. aw!
everyone pre partied too heavy tonight. i looked around and noticed everyone was pau. back at the ala moana there was a LITTLE more schenanigans but for the most part this was probably the most tame friday night i've had in years. i guess the cali boys can blame jet lag. and their demo in the morning.
ah! the demo! everyone cruised out to mililani skatepark saturday to watch the TnC sunburn classic.
billy trying to sweat out all the beer
SO damn cute!
pat is LOVING hawaii, by the way
i don't have the best spot to see. i'm clinging to a fence with all my weight on two milimeters of my toes. ugh.
ah that's better. THANKS ROB!
