Cloud tickling Lana'i's crown.
Expedition to the West Side. The new bypass gives Texas-sized views. Lunch at the honu restaurant.
Different atmosphere over there. Sun, tourists, weather-beaten Lahaina guys on bicycles. Bikini strollers. Honu are like aliens amongst us, we shore monkeys. Silent presence living in a parallel universe.

Gotta love being surrounded by the vast expanse.
But there are too many people on this planet, too much garbage we make, and too many people suffering from the circumstance of their birth. The world with humans may end, but better do something with the time one has.

But first, you must say goodbye. Don't forget me while I'm out and about.
Different World. Same big box stores, but here is space, young buildings and streets, and big nature.
But, more West to come. And completely different.

Feeling dubious to see China and Russia on the list of countries with viewers looking at this blog.
That is not to say that the other countries that appear on the "stats" page are any less questionable, especially given that they may just be ricochet shots for any number of miscreants.
Who knows what is what, or who is who.
Good luck, guys. I hope you love your mothers more than your nations and your paychecks. I'm not a fan of nations.

Hey, Dreaming Thomas has a 45-minute set at the Asian Pacific American Heritage Month Celebration...and we qualify! It's good to be a cultural minority, sometimes. And we're each a cultural minority within our own band, too. Beat that.
In the mix are original tunes that will become your new friends and covers by bands you've most certainly heard of if you didn't grow up under a rock on a small island this past century. We will regale you with melodies, harmonies, and...other stuff. Young Norm will crank up the Cuteness Knob to "11", Smooth Rahul will impress with his digital night moves, Ricky will keep it all in the pocket whilst groovin' it on both the up and down beats, and Chris will warble at full throatle and power up his rumble bass so youze can all shakes yer booty with the kiddies.
Come check us out on Saturday, May 19th, 2:15pm at Mifflin Square Park, at 6th & Wolf (or Ritner, whichever you prefer). We're on after "Every Heard" and "No One You've Ever Heard Of" (fo' reels, no joke, brah).
The festival goes from 11am to 4pm and includes performances by K-pop dancers, martial artists, bands, solo artists, and...FOOD. Thankfully, no comedians.
We will be aiming to blow yer socks off, so get ready...bring some socks so we can all make Asian America Great (again).
