ARTafterDARK Rakugaki Recap

June 20, 2014 at 12:17AM

Dane Neves (of Not Another Puppet Show) and I shot my Beatbox Battle TV video at Pu'u 'Ualaka'a State Wayside (a location recommended by Craig Garcia) on the morning of ARTafterDARK Rakugaki. The "Jason Tom from Hawaii - Freestyle - Beatbox Battle TV" video has over 12,000+ views and counting. I want to thank everyone who has been sharing, liking, and commenting my Beatbox Battle TV video. Your support means a lot! It's the first time Hawaii and an Asian American is featured on the Beatbox Battle TV YouTube Channel. It's also the second Hawaii beatbox video to be featured on the Beatbox Battle TV website. I want to thank Beatbox Battle for reaching out and supporting Hawaii beatboxing.

After shooting that video I prepared for ARTafterDARK RaKugaki. That event itself was a success. Attendance exceeded the Honolulu Museum of Art's capacity of 2,000 with over 2,233 that came out, and this is an ARTafterDARK record high for 2014. I want to thank God, my fans, supporters, the organizers, the dancers, and more! Also I want to thank Cherry Lei, Kealoha, PRV, and Diamond Inouye for our collaborations. Below are some of the event photos by photographer Joe Marquez of the Smoking Camera:

Know the fruit of your labor is your labor of love. If you know that, no one can take that from you. When you recognize that, know your worth is eternally internal, not external. When we sow bountifully, we will reap bountifully and bear much fruit that is far bigger than ourselves, what is in our posessions. No earthly riches can fulfill what Father God can. When someone cannot see we are highly favored and the harvest coming our way, know that for him or her though seeing, do not see. Keep on moving and recognize we have more than enough. We need not another person's approval for the fruit of our labor that bears much fruit. Be glad and rejoice for this is the Day that the Lord has made called Today. Know that Father God approves of us, our work ethic and dedication. It is you who Father God is well pleased.

Be bold! When a topic is controversial and you feel strongly about it, be unafraid to speak out in public even when in error. Most of us don't care about how politically correct a person can be over how authentic and real he or she is. It's how we learn from one another as long as we're appropriate to one another. Most of the time when we are in error we learn more. That does not mean to be intentionally in error like a troll would be, but it is good to give our best effort to speak out on tough and sensitive topics. No one cares if we are always right. Even a mathematically cannot always be right, but that mathematician will find a way to learn from his or her math errors. If you only spoke out when you are right, then you will not grow into tackling tougher topics. The moment you feel you need to stay silent on tough issues is the moment you've allowed yourself to be passive about an issue that does concern you. We have a voice for our generation. Be that voice. Use your voice. Be passionate and use your voice to advocate on the topics you want to be heard.
