Kihei’s Son

Last night I was bestowed the honor of becoming Kihei’s Son. I accepted (of course). Getting the key to the city was a distinct honor.

Today, we had a parade down to Big Beach and it was amazing! The flower petal trail was too much! At Big Beach, I was informed that part of the ritual was that Kihei’s Son was to be blessed by the ocean and only then could you become a true Hawaiian. I accepted and went into the waters.

I thought the waves looked a bit big. Bigger than I had experienced a few days before. I could see that if I just got out far enough, I could just bob in the big waves and everything would be cool. They crested nearer the beach. But then, all hell broke loose and a 10 foot wave was coming right toward me. I looked at Jaye and pointed and was trying to jump over and through it but…no luck. I was hit smack in the face with the beast. At first I tried to fight it. Then I remembered you were just supposed to ride it out. After being thrashed around like a rag doll for what seemed like minutes, I thought, “I this how it ends? Crowned Kihei’s Son, then swallowed by the ocean like nobody’s business?”

As the ocean became a netti pot and my swim suit filled with sand, all of a sudden, I realized I could stand up and breath again. I didn’t drown!

And there was much rejoicing!

I earned the crown and was offered a fresh coconut to drink from. Wow! What a vacation. That’s me in the center of the photo.


Happy Mothers Day

Not only is it Mothers Day but also the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the first gig of the Mothers. Here’s an excerpt.

Nova Blitz Facebook Plea

Nova Blitz is the game I’m currently working on. We’re trying to get our facebook likes up and over 1000. If we do this by friday we will share a video that I made that demos the UI sounds that I created last week. I’m pretty psyched about it.
