How was the Hawaii Five-0 premiere? Pretty damn amazing, honestly. I have been lucky enough to be involved with these Sunset on the Beach red carpet events since they started in some form or another, and this was the first year that I was just an invited guest. I felt lucky to be there at all. I wish you could have come with me. Here though – I went and saved as many of my videos from snapchat that I could and stitched them together for you just in case you don’t snapchat (?!?!) so you can relive it with me. It’s barely a minute long but you’ll get the full jist of it :)
As for Showdown in Chinatown… I made it. Barely! After making that grand entrance/exit to the premiere I lost my girls after lurking the red carpet interviews and couldn’t find them again. “We have a seat for you” my friend Sanoe texted me as I was viciously snapchatting as much of the spectacle as possible. I wound up sitting in the sand since they were too far in the middle and I didn’t want to be caught squishing through both before and during the show. It was a nice view of the opening though and gave me a very easy out to run back to my car and run to Chinatown in time for the film competition. I raced to the street to find a cab then grabbed my car and bolted to Kakaako with probably about 3 minutes to spare.
It was so worth it.
I was so incredibly impressed with not only the films but the original music the filmmakers were given to choose from. The winning film was a fantastic work of art from Director Rose Wolf, who performed alongside her muse, dancer Nathaniel Whitaker.

Huge shout-outs to her team of visionaries Aisis Chen | Cinematographer, Editor Spencer Agoston | Set Production Dan Baram | Still Photography, Production Assistance Danielle Halford | Production Assistance Tim Orden | Still Photography, Production Assistance, Title Design. Everything from the concept to the photography, performance, even the graphic design was so on point. This is why I love this event. I left feeling very happy to have made it. Then I went home to change to go back out and fell asleep. Sorry Maria =(
“Relationships can sometimes be very black and white. One person has their own way of living life in a bright white world, another person in their dark black world. But sometimes two people find each other and blend their world their worlds together. Then more compassion, emotion and color fill our hearts and our world. ” – Rose Wolfe
NICE job lady. I love you.

i can’t believe i’m missing bush in waikiki tonight. you have no idea how much i love(d) that band. i had a long commute from my farm house to the maritime faculity where i worked in this surfer town in england about four hours west of london and it was nothing but winding roads and zero stoplights. best place to drive ever. and driving to sixteen stone was better than coffee. gotta machine HEAD!
it’s ok though. it’s rare for an opportunity to view/judge film submissions for the showdown in chinatown MUSIC VIDEO challenge this month. that’s huge. all these long commutes i seem to always have give me a lot of time to think and make up some amazing music videos in my head. i have a brilliant one for jem’s they that i might try to produce one day, and i still swear to this day that the get free video i had in my head is almost exactly what the real video turned out to be. so i am totally with you artists and can’t wait to see what you were able to produce.
anyway. saturday night is AWN. i’m still going to the five-0 premiere. dah! the homeys are back! it will be nice to say hello before the showdown then go over
to see awkwafina say happy birthday to jus bone at nextdoor. that is one hard working inspirational dude.
thank you so much tracy for hanging out with me last night and kat you killed it too (and thank you maria for wearing that dress). i’m lurking your pics! i had Taco make me another 50 cds and a SNNYDZE2 so email me your address if you want to make your drive time more bearable. it’s the least i can do.
last night was like a dream. a room full of gorgeous people and gorgeous music and the most beautiful human on planet earth REID with his beautiful oceanface friends that had me asking myself is this really the hand i was delt. really. THESE are the people hanging out with me right now for my daytime tropical vibes cd party in an over-the-top aloha friday theme?
i must have done something very good in a past life.
(hay zilla? stop being so pretty it’s distracting. also i loved tagging with you at addiction)

hot DAMN! i don’t think i’ve ever done an event where i said more prayers in my life. i didn’t even know who i was praying to – i just kept doing it. the weather was set to thunderstorm the whole month and even the weekend leading up to our event we were humping truckloads of equipment to the 6th floor in rain and black skies. waking up on monday morning to blue sky is a feeling i will never forget as long as i live. i am so eternally grateful that everything we pulled together for this event went off. we were SO blessed you guys. and what a great day. thank you to everyone who helped make it happen. my young’s co-workers, davy and his awesome team at above ultra lounge, dan from kings pub, roberts hawaii, lili at bacardi, travis at red bull, colonel, the guys from contrast magazine, sunbum, ivi, san lorenzo bikinis, and of course my partner compose. WHAT A DAY!

The Last Ever from Banzai Media, LLC on Vimeo.
12/21/2012 at The Republik from 6pm-midnight. Please stop by and hang – the only thing I can gurantee is the typical sensory overload you would expect from a party I put my name on. You can get your tickets any time this week at The Safehouse or at the door. The $20 is my last effort to raise money for our Pow Wow February 6-16th right here in Hawaii. Come early, you’re really going to want one of these Bestof2012 CDs I put together with DJ Soundcheck of every song that made me smile or laugh or dance or cry this year. Hope to see you so we can celebrate together. Mahalo to Mikey at Banzai Media for taking a break from killing it to make me this teaser, it kicks so much ass.

wine club nowhere JUST to post this. those that were at our annual Blank Canvas fundraiser saw it and were amazed by it so here you go:

supercw presents the
Best of LAST of 2012 EVER!!!
it’s not like the world is REALLY ending. but sorry, this blog is. i mean, it was so easy to keep the updates coming week after week, year after year, but this past year has been tough. the truth is since i got the mac i just can’t figure it out. if i can ever sort it out i will probably get back to blogging because i totally am still taking hundreds of photos each month. i’m just not sure blogging is where it’s at any more. everyone has sort of evolved to more bite sized chunks of life. and my updates? were looooong. i’ll keep this here as an archive forever though. well, as long as media temple will keep me on their team. like a seven year chunk of nightlife in honolulu for us all to look back at forever.
but for the sake of keeping things fresh and relevant, i need to have a retirement party for supercw.com. there is an AMAZING new project i’m taking on, that i can hopefully reveal by the time this party happens. cross your fingers that i can make it happen. it will RULE!!
so the details for this party that i can tell you now? it’s on Friday December 21st 2012. my birthday. it will be early again – a 6pm-midnight thing so we can all hit the streets after and go to our favorite bars after. there will be fashion and art and music as usual and special guests The Knocks from New York just trust me they are going to ROCK it.
i will be showing every photo i have ever taken so we can take that trip down memory lane together. this year’s will be in a separate projection and you will all be very surprised how much has happened in one year, let alone all seven years of this website.
it’s a fundraiser for pow wow hawaii so hopefully everyone is ok with no guestlist. this is our last effort to raise the $ we need to make February happen. we are going to have some fun though. you gotta trust me!!

Pow Wow 2013 lineup is set, and duh it’s going to blow your mind. More than tripling the number of people flying in to Honolulu from all over the world this year really sparked something in all of us and we have been working hard to make it better and better and expanding who we are reaching with education programming and fcking amazing events. The lineup for 2013 will again be announced at our annual fundraising event. We hope to see you all there :)
Speaking of that, an amazing board of highly skilled fundraiser geniusbrains believes in us so much that they stepped up to coordinate the event, called Blank Canvas Saturday October 8th in Kakaako. When I say geniusbrains I mean they are already selling tables and pulling auctions items from people like Chanel, Ferragamo, Trump Tower and Halekulani to name a few. The event in itself will be like non other. Promise. So please if you haven’t already done so purchase your tickets while they are still available online.
SO much mahalos to Michelle Richardson, Nodie Namba-Hadar, Anne Namba, Kathy & Miles Inouye, Jeff Dinsmore, Anna Meng, Georgette Luppino, Natalie Aczon, Darlene Reynon and the rest of the very talented committee. We are VERY EXCITED FOR THIS:
We also will be partnering with BAMP Project for a fundraising event September 23rd with special guests Future Islands !!!! Tickets are also available online for this, they are only $20 right now please don’t wait! We are really excited for both of these fundraising events and hope to see you. and JUST WAIT til you see what we do in February!

Ha, it’s my own fault that i hardly ever have the right image to accompany my column every week. it’s usually monday morning that i’m trying to wake up my friends to get a hi res image from them because nothing i got is print worthy. sorry, guys… i was too busy having fun :)
So here you go, THIS IS LANCE. You know him though. Everyone knows him. So
unassuming and sweet and kind and fun and mellow and crazy all in the same package.
I really can’t tell you how much i love this kid, and if you read my column this week you know how i feel about his parties.
if you didn’t make it, just picture a room full of everyone fun and as soon as I can figure out this mac/iphoto/wordpress situation i’ll share all the images. thinking if i can’t get it situated i’ll just do a facebook album. we’re friends right? if not sorry, they limit that shit like the assholes they are.
PS: the image we DID run is still pretty epic, thank you Mark Kushimi. I CAN NOT WAIT FOR NICOLE’S SHOW!!!! (look for that writeup soon) also for KAMEA’S SHOW this weekend, tomorrow is the opening, hope to see you there. saturday is lovefest, we’re ALL going. just get your ticket already. it’s in town. IT’S IN TOWN, LOVEFEST IS IN TOWN.
IF anyone has time to show me how to blog the 763297349872 photos i have with this new mac please let me know, upgrading to one (and Instagram) is pretty much the only reason why I haven’t been keeping you up to date. it sucks cause there’s some doozys. since march!

I like hanging out with dj soundcheck. mostly because he’s way more haole than me. also because he doesn’t give a flying fck what people think about him and is one of very very few dudes i know that i can respect is telling me the truth. a la flash and daniel. very good people to have in your life, guys like them. it’s also wicked to have a friend that is equally if not more obsessed with honolulu. and good music. this guy can basically do no wrong. except now. i want to strangle him so bad. i think the drops in this summer mix are fiercely phony and ruin the whole thing. he thinks they are hilarious and refuses to take them out. you’ll have to deal with them, sorry. it’s actually a really fun mixtape, there’s a lot of classic hipster tracks and some of the new stuff (hello RATATAT!!) that you might not have heard. god, i love it. have a listen/download. hopefully you, like me, will have had a much better hour while listening.

thank you to everyone that made the effort to come out to our memorial day bacardi pool party. wow, what a doozy. no, seriously. i think this one might have been the best one yet. the extremely strict capacity the hotel enforced turned out to be a blessing in disguise – it made those of you that made it inside WAY STOKED. the energy was amazing. you guys danced your ASSES off! i love you all. sorry to those that didn’t make it in. tell me your best idea to turn 2000 people into 600 and we’ll try that at the next one. ps: we get to do another one :) i’ll keep you posted.
recaps are with my husbands at Contrast Magazine, and they will keep coming. pulse has some up too. also here and soon here. i’ll post my favorites real fast, and trust me one day soon i will blog. it’s in me. it is. so many pics…..
ps: here is your new summer mix to download and play over and over and over like i am right now. thank you la dj brian fowler aka beeFOWL aka THEFUNNESTGUYINLAPERIOD
between this mix and compose’s good times i have pretty much abandoned all other music for the time being. please hold.

The only thing that makes this year seem like it was extremely long was the fact that we did the Pow Wow in 2011. I keep thinking it was last year, but it was this year. In February. For that reason alone as I look back at 2011 I realize this might have been the longest year ever. Ever ever.
With that being said, the best WORST has been my commitment to blogging. Every week, every month, each year sort of fizzled to once or twice a month on average after the Pow Wow in 2011. I had to look back through many other mediums to remind myself of those moments that had my head spinning (there were so many!) and definitely worthy of this worthless Best Of 2011 according to Me award.
So without further ado….

my birthday present to myself has become the tradition of throwing a big fcking party. last year’s pool party was epic because it was a new space and pool parties made a pretty big comeback in 2010. this year i wanted to do a throwback to the 2009 warehouse style, with joseph projecting his live visuals, MONARX, a bunch of live painting, matt bruening‘s fashion and a bunch of good drinks. i also have every photo i ever took ready to display for the entire event. from 2004 to 2011. that’s pretty much everyone. including you. a lot lot lot lot has happened in those eight years. it’s going to be really fun to share it. i really hope you can come.
