so driving in to work i hear my old pal paul ogata on the bomb morning show. i ran a few red lights to get there before he left and snap this photo. PAUL OGATA! who saw his show last week? that’s one funny guy right there.
went back in time at the very last minute to la mariana as well. i was im’ing ryan– probably to ask how to do something in wordpress– and he was like ‘come tonight!’ and i was like ‘come to what?’ and he was like ‘the HawaiiThreads.com christmas party!’ and i was like ‘OKAY!’.
ryan ozawa’s baby girl. she’s famous
so is his baby boy.
so, burt lum. bytemarks! he’s having an unconference conference on technology and such things in january. i’m really excited. you can go here if you want to participate. an unfoncerence conference is the kind with no ‘real’ rules or long winded pitches. just like minds talking story. for the most part. i’ll be there. hyped.
gift exchanges are always better with a twist.
except when it’s a $10 grab bag gift and someone gets SUPERBAD on dvd then the rest of us are hella jealous. no, i still haven’t seen it.
meanwhile at the station. rick rock’s pombaby is what finally convinced doug to get a puppy i think. we haven’t seen a lot of him since.
thursday was a special preview of new special venue at clearchannel.
they will be doing a lot more live performances now with visiting artists. they also have capability to livestream. wooooo!
it is set up like a very intimate listening room. hella tight.
kevin cotton love-loving hoang.
it was intimate but it wasn’t intimate. hella people.
i really did ask clarence if i could take this shot before i snapped it. it still looks like i caught him off guard. so ya. citizen cope, everyone. wooo.
he is a more hip hop jose gonzales if i had to describe. very sweet songs with a very heavy voice. unique. it was a nice show.
oh hey woah! look! your face is over there on the wall dude….
friday met up with the arthur for the drinks in the waikiki.
i didn’t take much shots but he did…
we appreciated okto hekion’s art after. shit. i remember when he was making this back in the day. i believe it was in the first ever art show at thirtyninehotel too. someone bought it before i got there. i was hella pissed.
tino’s stuff was up as well. i got a couple pieces. hot stuff.s
so pipe dreams uprooted and moved about three storefronts over. they had a little party. i know you can’t see but that’s paula fuga up there. i know right! big time. whoever doesn’t have her lilikoi album yet should get on that.
thirtyninehotel after. duh. horkilr bgp.
i got phone-passed to say hello to chittom when we were at the art show. apparently he didn’t believe i was cruising with arthur. whatever! we been homeys for evs..
anne said germ can switch this friday to make my big birthday bash. i heard her say it myself.
ooklah was back at thirtynine, by the way….
…that’s why it was so crazy.
jenny is back. i didn’t even recognize her. she’s all growns up.
miguel miggs was next door at Next Door. when i heard about him i totally thought it was next door miguel that was playing. then i’d hear all these gasps that i don’t know who this dude is. sorry.
but ya i guess when he’s in town shit goes off. house music.
upstairs was a whole other universe of fun stuffs tho. someone’s birthday. someone’s prom party. those always go off.
i had just missed the 80s music tho, although i heard someone asked zachariah to play some. ha!
