Fave Friday: Hawaiian Treat (Desert Island Edition)

April 23, 2010

It’s been a while, but let’s take a stroll back on memory lane and buss’ another Desert Island game/survey. Y’all know how it works so I won’t get into too much detail explaining it, but fast kine, these are things that you just can’t live without if stuck on a desert island, like, for-EVA.

Today’s Desert Island item: “Hawaiian Treat”.

You can interpret “treat” howevah you like cause it could be anything from food to a foine female (or handsome hunk), but the rule is that it’s gotsta be “Hawaiian”.

* Poke would be the easy/expected answer from me, but after 5 straight months of non-stop poke-ing, as well as yesterday’s news about salmonella poisoning, I’m gonna mix things up and not be so predictable (for once). πŸ˜›

Hmmm… I really like Haupia and Kulolo, but I think I’d get large (and in charge) eating that errry day. I LOOOOVE Lau Lau, but I wonder if I’d get tired of it after a while… I guess then, I’d choose:

* Chicken Long Rice.

It could pass as a soup dish, a noodle dish, AND a chicken dish… enough to keep me interested at least for a little while I think. Oh yeah, and

* Primo Beer and an ukulele

Those count as “Hawaiian” right?

Holla!
* What are the “Hawaiian Treats” you’d bring to our Desert Island?Β Β If you say a “Hawaiian” genie in a bottle with three more wishes, I’m gonna die. πŸ˜›
* Thoughts on yesterday’s NFL Draft? How did your team do? Thoughts on Tyson Alualu at #10? Am I the only one who thinks Tim Tebow will prove his doubters wrong?
* Thoughts on the NBA playoffs? Isn’t Kevin Durant just a beast!? Feel sorry for Portland? (First Jordan, now this?)
* Thoughts on Roy Halladay’s even-better-than-expected, awesome start for the Phills?
* Thoughts on Jeremy Lay leaving the UH Men’s Basketball program and all of the other activity coach Gib Arnold is up to?
* Gonna order WEC’s first PPV event: Aldo vs. Faber? Who you pickin’? I say Aldo still. Also, not sure if they’re gonna air it, but don’t forget to root for local boy Brandon Visher on the undercard.
* Any exciting plans for the weekend?
* Did you see Brian Kownacki and his Fordham Flip?

I think we’re gonna be helping wifey’s friend with wedding stuff as well as possible house hunting/browsing this Sunday. If you own or know of anyone who owns a reasonably-priced crib in town (Oahu), holla! WWE special discount? 8)

Happy VHO7V Friday! Have a good weekend y’all!

Photography at the Right Angle – Caption Contest (9 of 23)

April 19, 2010

Last week’s caption contest stirred up lookalike references (ala Andy Reid) as much as it did captions, but I don’t think we’ll have that problem this week. 1) Because you can’t see sistah’s face, 2) the axe will be a slight distraction to many of you, or 3) the bikini will be an even greater distraction to some of y’all… not mentioning any names or anything (*cough*rayboyjr*cough*). LOL!

So yeah, let’s see where you all fall. Caption away yo!

Fave Friday: Cover Songs

April 16, 2010

First up. Gotsta give props where props are due. Bruddah kuya.d held it down the last two days with his 209 garnering WIH post. Holy smokes! Much love to all of you who participated in the convo as well! And with that said…

Jason Mraz‘s song “I’m Yours” (whose popularity can actually be traced back to Hawaii’s support) is probably one of the most over played/over done songs in recent history. We’ve seen it on American Idol, all over Youtube, and our very own band Ten Feet even covered it.

Not that that’s a bad thing. Mraz is probably flattered that so many people enjoy his music enough to want to redo it.


Jason Mraz – “I’m Yours”

One band I’ve been grooving out to lately is this a capella band called Straight No Chaser and they have a version of “I’m Yours” (which includes an Iz-ish version of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”). Pretty cool. Check it.


Straight No Chaser – “I’m Yours/Somewhere Over the Rainbow”

And let’s not forget the cute, little kid who sang “I’m Yours” in this viral hit:


Little Kid on Youtube – “I’m Yours”

So today’s “Fave Friday” be on that very topic: Cover Songs. Rather than just listing the song name and the various artists who covered it though, let’s make things fun and a little more interactive.

Talk to us!
* Write the name of a covered song and wait for the next person commenting to guess who the original artist, as well as those bands who covered it, was/were.
* Write the name of a band, and wait for the next person commenting to guess the covered song(s) and who the original artist(s) was/were.
* Write the name of a song you wish would be covered and by who.
* Link to your favorite version of “I’m Yours”
* Anything else you like add.

K, your turn! πŸ™‚

Happy VHO7V Friday! Have a good weekend and I’ll see y’all on Monday! πŸ™‚
