IG2 Unboxing Video

My new blog on the corporate "Time Warner Cable Untangled" site is out. It's an unboxing video (titled You, Party of Eight) of our latest wireless hotspot device, the IG2. Let me know what you guys think! :)



IG2 Unboxing


Please "Like" Our Photo!

Last Thursday, some friends and I participated in Lanakila Pacific's The Good Table, an island-wide dining event to benefit Lanakila Meals on Wheels. Our restaurant was Ola at the Turtle Bay Resort, where we enjoyed each others' company (with wine in abundance 8) ) and ate some ono kine grindz prepared by Chef Fred DeAngelo. Some of the photos taken that night (from all participating restaurants) were selected by Lanakila Pacific and entered into a photo contest to win a "staycation" package at the Royal Hawaiian valued at $1,500. Ricky Li's photo from our time at Ola is currently in the lead with 106 Likes. Please "Like" the photo and help him maintain the lead to win himself a nice little staycation (the contest ends this Friday). Rumor has it that he may turn it into a hotel party with all those in the photo. :lol:

4) The feature on Rice Fest in this past Sunday's Star Advertiser.

Hawaii's Backyard writer Cheryl Chee Tsutsumi wrote a feature article on the Rice Fest in this past Sunday's Honolulu Star-Advertiser (Travel section). Great coverage!

You Can Do It If You Try/Nandemo Dekiru (なんでもできる) - Alvin "Pops" Okami
Earlier tonight, I was fortunate enough to be invited to an event called "KoAloha Mai", a live webcast of local artists (like Herb Ohta, Jr., David Kamakahi, Jon Yamasato, Manoa DNA, & Pali), hosted and streamed out from KoAloha Ukulele Factory via Channel808.tv. One of the treats of the night was when Alvin "Pops" Okami performed "You Can Do It If You Try/Nandemo Dekiru" a song he selflessly dedicated to the people of Japan who are currently suffering due to the tragic earthquake and subsequent tsunami. Here's the performance that literally gave me chicken skin! For more information about the song and to find out how you can help, visit KoAloha's Nippon Relief page here!

Click here to read Bruddah Alvin Okami's story behind the inspirational song!
