November 24, 2010 at 06:47PM

Wow, I found out that one of my recent videos (from my HAT Party blog entry) got featured as "Jason Tom from Hawaii" on the Beatbox Battle TV network, the world's largest beatboxing archive. What an honor! Maximum respect to Beatbox Battle!!!!

Then to my biggest surprise "Jason Tom from Hawaii" skyrocketed to the top as a TOP 10 clip from #7 to #1. It fell off temporarily and climbed back up from#9 to #1. Thanks to you the supporters that have viewed, rated, and commented on the video. I want to thank you all for making the video #1!

HAT Party

A while back Hawaii-Aloha Travel's Bruce Fisher, whom I first met during the TEDx Honolulu 2009 conference and reunited with at the [Re]Think: Hawaii 2010 conference, invited me to open for Makana at HAT's Annual Appreciation Party. I was impressed about the thought put into how they made the program for guests look like airplane travel tickets. I'm a dork for that, because I love travel. After my solo set... Makana and I reunited on stage closer to the end of his set with Gerardo Velez (percussionist for Jimi Hendrix & more). It was truly an honor to be part of  HAT's Party filled with fun as well as laughter and my overall impression is that Bruce is an amazing boss for his HAT agents. I mentioned to Bruce that I experienced the best crowd for my "Boom Clap Boom B…

There are soooooooo many others I could list! I LOVE to read!

Well, here are some of my favorite classics: Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger, To Kill a Mockingbird by Harper Lee, The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and The Lord of the Rings (series) by J.R.R. Tolkien. Some great non-fiction books about the dance culture I love include Foundation by Joseph Schloss, which is an excellent book about NYC B-boy/B-girl or breaking/breakdance culture, Can't Stop Won't Stop by Jeff Chang, which is a great historical analysis of American Hip Hop culture, and The Underground is Massive by Michelangelo Mathos, an amazing history of electronic dance music culture. Happy reading everyone :)

Enders Game, The Great Gatsby, Of Men and Mice, Maximum Ride. I need to read more books. I haven't read so long Bc I've been attached to the ones I've already read.

Jason You're amazing guy! Huge congrats from Poland!

Jason definitely deserves an auditorium of his own. He done a lot promoting the arts(especially beat-boxing) and inspiring people like myself to enjoy and constantly try to perfect an art and have an unstoppable mindset.

Aye that's lit. Keep doing what you're doing and you're putting a positive influence to a lot people

Jason Tom is a one-of-a-kind individual. During my sophomore year of high school, I remember watching him beatbox for our school for just a few minutes and was blown away by the amount of talent he was able to showcase in just that limited amount of time. Fast forward about three years or so, I was looking to write a feature story of a KCC alumnus/alumna for the KCC newspaper and came across Jason's name online. He was quick to respond to me when I reached out to him, and he was very interested in being featured. I got the chance to interview him, and couldn't believe the stories that he had to share with me. Over a two hour period, I was able to learn a lot about who Jason was, and he has proved to me that anybody can make it in life when even in the toughest situations. His humor and charismatic nature really bring his personality to life, and I blows me away to know that he has a positive impact on the community not only through his beatboxing but also through his words. Jason is inspiring, and I'm glad that I got to chat with him and share his story with many others and beyond.
