[pics] hawaii ink art after dark, after party at cupola, after after party at Loft, soul clap, Candy Bar & babes who brunch

September 7th, 2008 · 36 Comments

keep telling me the things you tell me when we see each other. because sitting here now going through this process of uploading, renaming, watermarking, saving as, uploading, copying, etc is TOTALLY WORTH IT!!!!

labor day weekend started off nice. i was lurking some goose girls with flash and LA mash up dj bobby -i know your name isn’t bobby- cutepie french.

man! how did i used to take such good shots of funny text messages. this was a funny one but i kinda blew it. have no idea what it says actually. but ya, it was funny cause flash was texting maleko what to say even though he was like 2 feet away from him.

later that night…

i saw germ’s doppelganger…

…at art after dark

hawaii ink was the theme. tattoos. i went with jasmine. who has real tattoos. we said hello to sara. who fooled me with her tattoo sleeve thing. it looked real at first. !

the guys from hart & hunnington were like drawing on people with sharpees. hum.

it was really hot and crowded. but in a good way. yay, museum! i alternated my time between galleries. got sniped by the new photog intern. woah, wanna intern for me too?

ps: this guy.

speaking of ink

we were kinda having fun with our own painless alternatives

oh! and guess who’s arm. guess!

mark howard!!!! man i miss you guys. is todd almost done in australia or what. seriously.

guess which one the easier, cheaper, painless alternative!

saw kamu in the courtyard with randall paulson and luke.  KAMU! boardbreaker kamu.

went to the cupola after party thing. saw pia, the woman that has the cutest german accent that looks like she would have anything but a german accent. that’s the soozou bag too. she kind of makes them. loves it.

jasmine did me a huge favor

and popped up on the other side of the table and multiplied

aw! you girls get two. you know, since there’s two of you.

made friends

and was poking fun at nathan’s scarf until he showed us this. ok! i take it back i take it back.

saw kayko!

every time i’m in this room i want to lay down on the wall up there

oh ps: the cabaret…

i didn’t really get anything good this time tho. sorry.

but oh you know it was sosexy

snuck in to the vip. didn’t even realize they have a vip here. HI!

whatwho!

oh! duh.

blackberry battling. oh, i have a new number. message me cause it’s probably guaranteed i don’t have yours.

chris’s tequila cologne

i can’t remember the first time i took a photo like this. i think it was sometime after i got tired of watch battling. but for right now, i’m really in to it. expect these for a minute.

aw

awwwwwwwwww

the vip room was WOAH! the FENDI table, and assorted other expensive amazing furniture were the bottle service tables. and they had those massive awesome parachute ball things which i love.

this is actually stage restaurant, so a cabaret is fitting. oooo, cabaret. our own private cabaret.

i saw goldenchild. er.

try two. ryan! introduce!

so ya, interesting party! loved that it started promptly at 9:30, which is seriously the art after dark witching hour for me– since i refuse to eat late dinner. one step to the left, and i’m in bed asleep by 10pm on a friday night. parties like this keep me going…….

….to the loft. been seeing more of skye lately. either she’s coming out more or i was just in all the wrong places.

the loft’s mayor was there

charlie and dave hisaka running for the hills. i loved seeing them on hotel street tho. BUSTED!

saw the loft’s crown princess

and its queen.
*drool*

saw dare and tamra with justin nozuka and his girlfriend.

oh SHOOT! i knew there was something i wanted to do between art after dark and now.

ha ha, i’m showing three because i kept taking this picture and looking in the little screen and saying “your eyes are shut! sorry! one more!”

went on full on cameraattack. ryan! your eyes are shut! one more.

lianne was out which meant woah.

ps: happy issue-out, smart mag! lyan rau, so nice to see you could join us.

what ya been up to! me? oh, you know. new job, old hair, same life. how bout you? been in any good mags lately?

i’ll just be honest, i can really get used to seeing these guys in chinatown.

i mean, luke IS chinatown. sassy and sophisticated. urban and hip.

matt is chinatown too. indie and uber. musicey and kind.

this necklace is chinatown. dynamic and metal.

paisley is chinatown too. perfect and wise.

oops. looks like nozuka done been spotted.

he was ace tho. top of the world ace.

sef one on the mic. ara on the positive.

what! oh! it appears that my canon has been jacked. someonecam!

someonecam

someonecam

mecam. tyler wolff is back! ooooo start a band start a band!

oh, rad. check out the younger, brighter, indier cross reference!

what’s this?

what!

whaaaaat! flash at the loft flash at the loft. tonight ruled.

chris kahunahana at the loft! chris kahunahana at the loft!

matty boy at the loft! matty boy at the loft! lance rae at the loft!

948-buzz at the loft!

swapma zz at the loft! swampa zz at the loft!

thanks for letting us hang, guys.

omg, i remember now it was serious camera battle. ha ha it reminded me of a review i saw on yelp for this place about how everyone here is always taking pictures. i remembred wanting to tone it down after that but not tonight…

…tonight was funnnnn

it was hard to leave

but night, friends. there’s like 9028358498 things i wanted to see tonight.

soul clap was one of em!

in wonder if this party could ever get better. favorite place favorite music favorite dj. nope. it’s pretty much the best there is.

woah still friday!

ha ha, where i usually never am

oh candy bar. candy bar candy bar candy bar.

candy bar = hotness tho. there’s no doubting the obvious.

beautiful brigitte and heidi. growr.

philip

dan

wait a minute! you’re in t-shirts. and hats! WHAT!

and look at these shoes! exactly the sort young kays had the other week when he got denied. look, pearl. let’s get some consistency in your entrance policies k? no hard feelings but come on. look how cool they make this place!

i went camera-attack crazy after this. woooooooooooooo!

wooooo!

awwwwwww

woooooooo

wooooo woooo

david and flash. oh hey! i heard david is having a party soon…

i heard philip is having a concert soon.

sorry. i will NOT be photographed after 3am.

neither will dan, apparently.

damn talk about an epic friday. how many places was that anyway. one, two… three… FIVE! saturday i needed to chill. like country chill.

that’s right. i’m on the north shore at kainoas. did you even know lance lives on the north shore? i know right. he’s in town lik every weekend. scott doesn’t live on the north shore anymore, but i bet he misses it.

john doesn’t live on the north shore but mike does. i think i might want to. like, for a season. like summer. summer on the north shore. how fun! you could still like go to work and stuff but you’d totally be in another world. that’s it. i’m putting my hyprid in the shop.

chad lives up here. and don’t think i didn’t try to get a good shot. he kept making this face, so this is what i got. ps: love the shirt.

btw chad had a sick reel

we watched it like seven times.

swampa zz. he lives up here too. tears up kainoas too. it was fun tonight.

sunday morning

sunday morning at the cream pot

with rita

and brigitte

and jessica and hugette.

all kind of big deal women if you ask me. but we were totally doing it fun like. no reason other than just brunch.

princess kaleihikina


princess alyssa

ps: we all wore purple

and the food here is so delicious. the eggs benedict comes on a bed of crispy rice instead of an english muffin.

i had the crepe. it had cheese and potatoes and some bacon and onions. god it was good. worth every penny of that $15.

you’re never too old for a theme party, damn it

ps: i loved hugette’s child-like purple manicure. she said it was just old but i mean it’s kind of perfect anyway.

ps: there was a  lot of us. aw, us.

wait i’m done? oh! well. i’ll try to spin up a few more soon. this past weekend was bananas!!! i saw you! first friday all night, saturday all night, shack all night! those soon. xoxox.

    “…..i didn’t really get anything good this time tho. sorry…..”

    whatever. That shot is hot…it looks like they’re on fire (literally instead of figuratively)

  • 10 lorne // Nov 17, 2008 at 8:31 pm

    How do you know that the girl in the pink is Justin Nozuka’s girlfriend? Not that I don’t believe your caption, but did he say so himself?

  • 11 KRIS // May 3, 2009 at 5:16 pm

    PLEASE ANSWER!
    How do you know that is JUSTIN NOZUKA’S
    girlfriend?? Did he tell you.

  • 12 K. // May 9, 2009 at 7:29 pm

    If you pay attention to Justin Nozuka’s “Be Back Soon” music video, the same girl in these pictures is also spotted in the video a couple of times.

    I’m just saying.

  • 13 KRIS // May 28, 2009 at 2:58 pm

    Ohh So is it a guess? or a fact?

  • 14 Kendra // May 31, 2009 at 1:14 pm

    OK so I watched the “be back soon” video and I did not see that woman in there. The only person who looked remotely close to her is the woman officer: and I’m pretty sure that’s not her.

    I’m just saying.

  • 15 Christa // May 31, 2009 at 7:17 pm

    hey, woah. i mean, he didn’t say “this is my girlfriend” but his arm was around her all night and they were definitely together. she was here in town the whole time with him for the show, etc.

    why? what’s going on ladies? am i getting someone in trouble?

  • 16 Star // Jun 4, 2009 at 8:16 am

    Haha.With that upload of Justin Nozuka and his “girlfriend”…I’m pretty sure it broke many of Justin’s female fans’ heart.No worries.Justin could have almost anyone he wants.Its not like he was going to stay single forever.Cheer up ladies.He has other brothers too,you know.

  • 17 K. // Jun 5, 2009 at 9:24 am

    Haha. She’s not the woman officer. She’s one of the extras in the background. Most of the time she’s dancing beside the Asian dude. Fast forward to 3:03 in the video. There’s a clear view of her face, and I must say it is the exact same girl in these pictures. Make sure its the one uploaded from Justin’s youtube account in order to get timing right.

  • 18 Anonymous // Jun 5, 2009 at 6:29 pm

    dude that was soo not even justin nozuka’s girlfriend shes black man ur info is way off

  • 19 Christa // Jun 5, 2009 at 10:20 pm

    ok anonymous whatever. that was like a year ago. move onnnn.

  • 20 Lovely // Jun 13, 2009 at 10:16 am

    Did Justin Nozuka really have a black girlfriend?

  • 21 Alez // Jun 18, 2009 at 3:34 pm

    Does it even matter who (ethnicity-wise) Justin Nozuka dates?He himself is an interracial individual and my god,he’s beautiful!!But the fact is,he has a girlfriend.Yeah,it blows for those of us who had hopes.But that shouldn’t stop the recognition of his amazing talent and great music.

    p.s.-Great pics Christa,right?I think your blogs are entertaining and makes me definitely wanna visit Hawaiiii :)

  • 22 Deena // Jul 3, 2009 at 12:37 am

    Nice pictures…I’m laughing historically over the Justin comments…and yes that is his girlfriend because they were on the Mayercraft cruise…I’ve heard she has an attitude and that Justin cant stand her…and when hes not around her he seems happy. but yeah, Great photos! By they way…the owner of these photos…do you know him in anyway?

  • 23 Christa // Jul 3, 2009 at 1:02 am

    i don’t know him he was just out that night. nice kid, i dunno. the girl was ok too – she had definitely had a few. it was fun.

  • 24 Christa // Jul 3, 2009 at 1:04 am

    ps: thanks alez! hit me up if you come visit i’ll style you out :)

  • 25 Deena // Jul 3, 2009 at 2:04 am

    oh ok, thank you for sharing! You seem so nice!

  • 26 loren // Jul 5, 2009 at 8:12 pm

    so i asked first but now i feel bad since i started this series of comments. obviously everyone will probably take this info with a grain of salt since we know it’s gossip but let’s keep in mind she’s not the famous one. he is. she can’t defend herself and she’s not asking for publicity at all so let’s not let say anything mean about her. not sayin anyone did but hopefully no one will.

  • 27 Random Rant // Aug 11, 2009 at 8:54 am

    Hmm..is she in Justin’s Golden Train music video?Because if anything,she and the girl in the mv have quite a resemblance.

  • 28 someone // Sep 6, 2009 at 3:00 pm

    I think that’s JN’s gf, if you’ll look at his myspace under the “nothing toulouse,” there’s a picture of a girl with another guy, they’re both looking at an apple laptop. The girl really looks like the girl in pink. Lol. The things that I notice…

  • 29 Lola // Nov 7, 2009 at 3:05 pm

    She’s definitely in the Be Back Soon vid and I heard she is really sweet and I think they make a great couple.

  • 30 aubrey // Dec 27, 2009 at 11:54 am

    Im happy for him but at the same time
    WHYYY CANT IT BE ME hahaha!! =O

    he is the one boy im still holding out for relationships dnt always work out thats what i keep telling myself! i have HOPE!

    beautiful boy and he would look amazing with a black or (( half black girl)) <—- cough cough me!

  • 31 rose // Feb 15, 2010 at 3:52 pm

    waoo, the jn’s girlfriend is very good lookin’, but, that makes sense, i’ve heard somewhere that she’s french..and as you all know, all frenchy girls are really “belles” ;), ‘n, i know what i’m talking about :p
    bw she is very lucky to have found him
