Fun Day Monday – Pet Peeves

May 24, 2010

The other day, I saw some clown wearing his shades indoors. Mo’ worse, it was night time. *groan* I never understood this. Am I supposed to be impressed with their uber coolness or somethin’?

Now I know that there may be some – with serious eye issues – who have the need for darkened lenses, and I completely sympathize with them. The peeps I’m actually talking about are the “I’m-wearing-these-mack-daddy-shades-at-night-so-I-can-attempt-to-be-too-cool-for-school” type. Oh boy.

Now that we have an entire weekend under our belts, I thought this might be a good time to vent, ala kuya.d‘s “I’m So Over It” post. And yeah, I could’ve sworn we’ve done this “pet peeve” topic before, but the only one I could find was our traffic pet peeve post. So vent it all out. What are some of your biggest pet peeves?

Fave Five Friday, Wedding Songs

September 19, 2008

I know you peeps are probably sick of all this wedding talk already (esp the dudes!), but I swear it’ll only be a little while longer. I only “axe” this because I have faith in you WWE readers. 🙂

So this week’s Fave Five list is a call out to all you music lovers/experts out there. No song from any generation or genre will be out of the question. We’re looking for those hidden gems out there.

The topic, as made obvious by the blog title, is Wedding Songs. Ones I’ve just gotsta have and overplayed ones to avoid like the plague. If you’re yet unmarried, or married but regret not playing some songs at your wedding… here’s your chance to live vicariously through me! 😉 Holla atcho boy!

Much love y’all!

Da In Da Running list:

  1. The Penguins – Earth Angel
  2. Stevie Wonder – You Are the Sunshine of My Life or Isn’t She Lovely or Ribbon in the Sky?
  3. James Taylor – How Sweet It Is (to Be Loved By You)
  4. Tony Terry – Everlasting Love
  5. Colbie Caillat – Magic
  6. Trey Lorenz – Someone to Hold
  7. Keith Martin – Because of You
  8. Hi-Five – I Can’t Wait Another Minute
  9. Opihi Pickers – Love You Forever (representing’ some Hawaiian flava!)
  10. The Stylistics – I’m Stone In Love With You
  11. The Jets – You Got It All
  12. etc…

(ok, so it’s a little more than 5… hehe!)

Da Overplayed/Avoid list:

  1. UNV – So In Love With You
  2. All-4-One – I Swear
  3. Aerosmith – I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
  4. 98 Degrees – I Do (Cherish You)
  5. *NSYNC – This I Promise You

We basically want people to hear the song, reminisce and go “Ohhhhhhh!” once they hear the song that hits home for them. Please help a brutha out and post your suggestions below (songs, artists, both!). I’ll be sure to give you credit during the reception (who’s gonna check? Nah!). 😛

P.S. Speaking of weddings, I recently read a fictional, but amusing post about Twittering a wedding and thought the idea was hilarious. Can you imagine me, or any groom for that matter, at the altar twittering live updates. Too funny!

Shoots! Have a good weekend y’all!

Colbie Caillat and Justin Young at Diversity Harmony Peace Event

May 28, 2008

Yesterday afternoon, local boy Justin Young joined platinum recording artist (and part-time Kauai resident) Colbie Caillat (“Bubbly,” “Realize,” “Magic”) on stage for the Diversity Harmony Peace event put on by the Na Lei Aloha Foundation at the Sheraton Waikiki Hotel Hawaii Ballroom. It was a star-studded event that also included local artists Keola Beamer, Raiatea Helm, Amy Hanaialii, and more, and was a follow up to the previous day’s 10th Annual Lantern Floating event at Ala Moana Beach. Below are a few snaps from the event. Mahalo to Blaine Fergerstrom for permission!

Do you love Colbie Caillat too? What’s your favorite song of hers? Shouldn’t a big record label give Justin Young a shot already!?
