Hawaii Tsunami Warning Video Featured on Huffington Post

My Tsunami Warning video featured on Huffington Post. What an honor;

The other night I was enjoying so Sake at the Sake Shop Hawaii one of my favorite Nihonshu shopping stomps when I got a Tweetbot notification saying there was a seismic event neat Be that was going to cause a Tsunami to hit the coast of the Hawaiian Islands in a few hours. It seemed as if nobody else had heard the news and being unfortunately accustomed to these false alarms I don’t think many people cared.

Just to be certain I went outside and there were the sirens wailing the emergency warnings. Naturally I bought some sake and headed home to batten down the hatches. Much to my surprise the local police force was already shutting down the streets. I made it in the house and shot this video with my iPhone 5 and promptly posted it to my YouTube Channel

It was just a simple video describing how I was feeling about another slight necessary but overactive evacuation by our city officials. Mostly because as a DJ the big EPIC Halloween Party we had planned for our club was gonna be cancelled.

Surprisingly people were all over twitter so once i shared it I got a request to have my video featured on Huffington Post. What an honor; however, they do not give any link back love to my site. That’s kind of rude I think.

Any way just wanted to share this little anecdote with you.

The Green House is Making Progress

Wow the last few weeks has been a wild ride. We were blessed with the opportunity to beta test our Green House concept via a Pop-Up Innovation Lounge during the “Nonstop Kakaako” block party. We have been planning The Green House for a few months now and it was time for the rubber to hit the road.

The just over 50o ft² space was coined the “Green House Innovation Lounge” and thanks to our community and the love and support we received we were asked to keep it open. Within two weeks we have outgrown that space so we’ve relocated right next door to a 1600 ft² space and are ready for you to come drop in, say hello and get some work done.

This is the first of many videos John and I will be doing to keep you updated as we grow The Green House Empire. Thanks to everyone who has shown us support so far. Happy Thanksgiving.

Douche Parking of The Week!


Ok so I skipped a few weeks of my photo series about the worst of the worst selfish douchebag parking infractions.

This weeks installment showcases this lovely gem of a fucktard who first bought a Nissan Sentra with pleather seats but then to protect his $14,000 investment he/she decided to park this POS sideways in the Target Parking lot. Hey, fucknugget it’s a muthafunking Sentra. I have a three weeks old Bimmer and I don’t park it crooked. I could buy three Sentras and have some cheddar left over for Target Shopping. Really?

Congratulations you are my Douche Parking Winner of the week!
