but for now. i’ll be cruising lunch time at the royal hawaiian.
special occasions only tho. like, hiff.
lotsa people dug it
it was hot tho. damn hot. my dessert selection melted into a muddled pastel pile of sickly-sweet soup right after this photo. with a blueberry on top. yuck. yum!
damn damn hot. we all wanted to peel off our clothes and take twelve steps makai.
went inside for the hiff awards ceremony instead.
kai’s filmworks/fx gave an award. it had me missing kevin smith tho. he was SO funny last year.
monkeyboy fever won the oceanic award.
linda admitted she is a total film nerd. i liked her.
outside did the usual in terms of elaine. the usual being bumping in to her in the most random situations ever. ELAINE!
friday now– voodoo at art after dark. the halloween editions of this event are always SO good. and oh hey! can you guess who this is??
ok i’ve been coming to these since i can’t even remember when and only just NOW found out about drink tokens? shoots airspace!
random scenes starting now:
there were more people dancing at this one than i’ve ever seen before. it was so fun.
i think it’s the first time i’ve ever danced here. oh– ginger!!
eskae is so fresh. he had a whole courtyard to himself. and us.
steve rules. book him.
he rules so much, he has a stalker sometimes.
INTO!! they have the coolest stuff. i am sitting here admiring my too-fabulous-for-words matt and nat bag as i type this.
he really shaved his head for this. winner.
this girl came a very close second tho. wait. never mind. it’s a tie for first. she ruled.
dug out to hiff. control played. that joy division flick. with compliments from airspace workshop. saw ctrl alt del. told you to appreciate todd’s ‘do. it’s gone gone gone.
josh from airspace made some moving comments before the film. he’s right too. the art community we have here is so fucking special. stretches across multiple platforms and mediums… intertwining… etc. people with vision should be celebrated on the regular. for reals.
mercury bar for the after party. get down in chinatown pub crawl was in full effect.
i crawled as far as…. the alley to smoke.
it was a long week. needed rest. fun at mercury tho! the music was hella tight.
saturday i lurked the go! girls at aloha tower.

ALEX was there! wooo now it’s a party.
she’s classy tho. back in town for a few. she might already be gone again. sad face. come BACK!
mmmmm mmmm makana was there too looking all kinds of sexy. too sexy for focus even.
and THIS lady was ruling the universe in the same dress as me but not exactly. they were similar in nature but different. and she totally recognized…. my VOICE! what the! rad! stella…. but whatever. good taste we have!
mega touch room.
meanwhile in first class…
so ya. that was fun. the more i walked around the more people there were. it was getting totally totally overcrowded within a matter of minutes. we broke out. but i’ll just say now… this ferry needs to be in operation. i have some ideas to generate some revenue while that is being worked out. superferry? call me!
