Posted for Videoblogging Week 2006. To end the work week, I talk a bit about the history and popularity of "aloha wear," and survey some of the fashion of downtown Honolulu. Thanks to vlogger Roxanne of Beach Walks with Rox for suggesting today's topic.
Music is "Lagoon (Baba)" from Gravity by Artemis (Magnatune).

Posted for Videoblogging Week 2006. Inspired by yesterday's vlog by Roxanne of Beach Walks with Rox, I head down to Magic Island at Ala Moana Beach Park. Magic Island is a popular park for locals and visitors alike, with wide open spaces, lots of shade, placid waters, and a great view of Waikiki and Diamond Head. This week, though, the park has been taken over for the Honolulu Centennial Celebration, rescheduled to this weekend after recent heavy rains and flooding postponed just about everything in Hawaii. As crews set up for the festivities, a few people enjoy the park, and several Japanese couples take their Hawaii wedding photos. Enjoy, but don't go in the water.
Extra special thanks to Wilfred N and the Grown Men for providing the music for today's video. The song, "I Never Get Tired of You," can be found on their album, Waiting for Luck To Come, available online.
I hit the road to check out the Nuuanu Pali lookout point, perched high in the Ko`olau mountain range overlooking the windward side of O`ahu. Posted for Videoblogging Week 2006. There wasn't too much danger, but there was a fair amount of wind, and a few warning signs. Music is "Steps" from Fall Submissions by AntiGuru (Magnatune).
