September you wen go?

Filed under: Posts — SunDub @ 10:03:06 pm

Howzit going. You ever had one of those months where you open your eyes and it's all pau(finished). September was lidat over here at UH-Manoa. Our football team got it's first victory after getting crushed while looking good against USC and Michigan State. The Hurricanes that shook up the Gulf Coast gave cause for alarm all across the globe. Hawaii was no different.
Having been devstated by Iwa and Iniki in years past, Hawaii awaits it's next big one... Supposedly, Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa (two of three places that snow in HI) deter the storms from hitting due to their size. Hurricane Season is quite the phenomenon in HI. When the threat of a real big one occurs people run out to the grocery stores to buy 20 lb. bags of rice and toilet paper like they will never be produced again. It gets so nuts that stores just drop the pallets in the aisles and no longer stock shelves.
Common came to the islands to drop verses. Local music is an interesting blend. On the one hand you have the music that everyone associates with Hawaii, beautiful singing in the Hawaiian language, the ukulele, or slack key guitar. And on the other, you have everything else from Hawaiian, Reggae, Jawaiian(Hawaiian-Reggae), Hip-Hop, Country, Classical and... Haole Rot.
Haole Rot is making a play on the common slang for describing the way caucasian peel after getting sunburned. Started the Spring of 2004, Haole Rot had humble beginnings in the dorm room of Colin Rozett (C-Dizzle Ro-Dizzle) with his friend Justin Schultz. The group advertises to play "Brutal Hawaiian Death Metal". They've been known to play at the Pink Cadillac and Anna Bananas. As you can see, Hawaii offers a little something for each taste. Pick up the Honolulu Weekly each Wednesday and you'll find a list of what's happening from that day on through the weekend.
If you're still looking for something to do, Hale Noa on Kapahulu Avenue offers the finest in local Awa or Kava. Awa is a root that is used throughout the Pacific and provides quite the relaxing experience. It is advised to bring a designated driver if you plan to drink more than one bowl. At $2 a bowl, it's worth a try. It can also be found sold in a powder or pill form at Health stores. Just follow the directions and it'll be all good. One can expect to feel very relaxed and expect a great night of sleep without waking up with a hangover the next day. Eh, chance em, might as well Bra. Oh, but no go mix um with alcohol. The buggah is no good.
While Awa is sometimes compared to dirt water, Leonard's bakery is right up the street and Ono Hawaiian Food is on the same block. Both places are classics in Hawaii and offere great grinds for a pretty reasonable price.
Well, that's all for this week. Send me some questions and I'll do my bext to answer them. Hawaii is not beautiful but fascinating and we have more than just the beaches to talk about. Aloha and have a good one.
