Hawaii 5 (and) 0!

November 30th, 2010
By



As an avid University of Hawaii Warrior Men's Basketball fan, I have been following former Advertiser sports reporter Dayton Morinaga's new venture - WarriorInsider - with much interest.

When my Google Reader showed up last week with the title "Hawaii 5-0" in it, I skipped over everything else and went straight for the jugular. It was actually a clever play on words referring to both the Warriors' hot 5 and 0 start (with wins over Montana State, Cal State Fullerton, Central Michigan, Central Arkansas, and Arkansas-Pine Bluff) and the popular CBS television show by the same name... Which, oh-by-the-way, happen to be two big interests of mine.

Usually our Tuesdays are reserved for Hawaii Five-0 chatter, but with last night's episode being a rerun (already???), what better time to talk about the other 5-0 right?

Note: I don't know Dayton personally (in fact, I don't think I've ever even seen him in person), but I've heard a lot of good things about him. He has no idea I'm blogging about this today, but I've always liked his work, so I wanted to do my little part to support a fellow sports fan/journalist/(and now) blogging brutha. Gotta support da local businesses naw-mean?

Anyway, check out his web site: WarriorInsider.com and follow him on Twitter: @WarriorInsider. He's doing some good stuffs for the UH sports community. Here's one of the videos from the site that I particularly enjoyed. It's a video introduction of the 2010-2011 roster... with the players appearing in numerical order! Awesomesauce!

Elephant, Heart & Soul, and Five-0 [VIDEOS]

November 23rd, 2010
By



These Tuesday posts are getting later and later yeah? Before you know it, da buggah goin' run into our Where In Hawaii Wednesday post. Oh well, better late than never ah?

So I guess it's obvious that I nevah watched Hawaii Five-0 live last night - hence the lack of a Five-0 post - but feel free to use the comment area below to chat up about the show with your fellow peeps anyway. I heard rap singer Nas made an appearance. Hah?

This weekend, I attended two events that had some killah live music and I wanted to post some videos I took to showcase the local talent we have here in Hawaii.

The first one is of a rock band called Elephant (who performs every Saturday from 9pm-2am at the Irish Rose Saloon in Waikiki). Lead man Kevin Jones is a talented DJ for Star 101.9FM, a better singer/rock star, and an even better friend. Check out Elephant performing a cover of Prince's "When Doves Cry" below.



Elephant - "When Doves Cry"

The second band is called Heart & Soul, comprising of two talented ukulele players: Chris Salvador and my buddy Jody Kamisato. I recently featured Jody (and other fellow Kaiser High grads) in my November AroundHawaii article: "Cougar Pride - Three Kaiser High Grads Making a Difference"). Jody is the owner and head instructor at Ukulele Hale, and Chris is a young, but talented player with sick vocal skills. Below is a short clip of them covering Pure Heart's "How Can I Get Over?" at their recent CD Release Celebration Party at Gordon Biersch at the Aloha Tower Marketplace.



Heart & Soul - "How Can I Get Over?"

Here's a little bonus cut from one of my favorite Youtube singers, an obvious ode to John Tyner's experience with the TSA. OMG Hilarious!



David Choi - "Please Don't Touch My Junk"

Kay, das all. Have a good Tuesday yo! :)
