Jason Tom Hawaii

Father's Day Weekend

What a productive last week and Father's Day weekend. It was anticipated on my calendar to be an intense week. On Thursday I taught 2 summer school classes early in the morning on the history and culture of beatboxing. Several students there remember when I performed at the school they graduated from several weeks prior. Before I came home from that adventure TEDxHonolulu uploaded and tagged me to their June auditions photo. That was when folks on Facebook made their voice heard. I want to thank Kitty for being the trend setter that she is and everyone who submitted "Jason Tom" to be a potential TEDxHonolulu presenter on 11.11.11 11.1.11. You can still nominate a potential presenter for 11.11.11 11.1.11 with "ideas worth spreading" for a total of two upcoming July auditions.

Then Thursday was pick up rehearsal for Femme Capulet before the opening weekend. On Friday I set up shop with my sponsor Freelance Clothing for Day 1 of the Big Boys & MMA Hawaii Expo presented by Napa Auto Parts at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall. Then I went to the art district of Chinatown to perform for Femme Capulet's opening night at ARTs At Marks. Opening night packed out and I spent time with most of the cast and crew there after.

Then Saturday morning I woke up bright and early for the TEDxHonolulu June auditions. Met with the wonderful TEDxHonolulu crew and volunteers for the first time in person. I was first to audition. No pressure and then George Carroll snapped this slick photo. What a pro, him and the TEDxHonolulu team and volunteers.


After that I went straight for Day 2 of the Big Boys & MMA Hawaii Expo and performed 3 mini demos to tease attendees for Sunday's entertainment during the Freelance Power Hour featuring Ill Hill Society, Beat Rock Krew and myself. Then I performed for Femme Capulet's opening weekend and that packed out. Final shows are this Friday, June 24th and Saturday, June 25th at ARTs At Marks. Doors 7pm. $25 at the door or $20 pre-sale online at http://www.brownpapertickets.com/event/175558 or call 1 (800) 838-3006. Spread the word!


Then Sunday was the big day, Father's Day, and I rocked the mic for Day 3 of the Big Boys & MMA Hawaii Expo during the Freelance Power Hour on Blaisdell Exhibition Hall's main stage.

Back tracking more.. June have been a wild month, June's First Fridays at HiSAM got canceled and postponed due to rain. PUJA Fantastic Voyage was a major success even through a storm on opening night Saturday, June 4th that caused an untimely power outage. Sunday, June 5th, PUJA Fantastic Voyage went smoothly and ate out with most of the Puja dancers. Then I performed for the 50th State Fair at Aloha Stadium. Shout out to Willow Chang and also the Tekniqlingz Crew. I had a blast spending time with Willow Chang, Adele Chu, Michael Hamilton, George Garcia and Isla Tango, Convergence Dance Theater, Anasma of Paris, Sangha Dance Theater, Jasmine Dance Revolution, Guilherme of Derose Method Hawaii, Samba AXE, and more.

For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.  Ephesians 6:12 NLT • 
We need to learn who we are fighting against and who we are fighting for! Sometimes we get that mixed up. #StandYourGround #riseup

Too bad I missed it! I should have requested the day off.

Looking forward to it! Thank you for sowing into my friend Ruby & I.

Congratulations on having your video featured on TED-Ed! I won’t be able to make it because I lead a Connect Group at that time. I’ll have Siri watch it for me.

This is so awesome Jason! Congratulations to Hazel, Moriah, & Micaiah!

Awesome JT. You have many gifts, skills, and much talent. I think you have found another calling for yourself and another way to help people. Mahalo nui for sharing and continuing to inspire.
