Honolulu Advertiser Videoshoot

February 12, 2011 at 05:56AM

Here is reminiscing one of my favorite local newspapers the Honolulu Advertiser (now known as the Star Advertiser). Here was a video shoot taken in a freight elevator for an exclusive TGIF Metromix cover feature. It was a ton of fun with no script and one take.

BeatboxSpot Showcase

January 27, 2011 at 07:56PM


So today I found out that BeatboxSpot.com is featuring me as their first showcased artist. Props to Philip Rinaldi! Wow, it's gnarly to play all of the videos on the page simultaneously at the same time. Surreal. This made my day, because to this day I encounter set backs and ridiculous politics that could drive a person insane in the membrane. Probably more now than ever, but all is fine as long as I keep my sights set on God. But still, no one deserves that kind of politics. Be sure to friend and subscribe to my YouTube Channel for updates: http://www.youtube.com/jasontomhnl

HAT Party

November 15, 2010 at 05:05PM

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…

My impromptu performance with B.Cap and Santino at the Dragon Upstairs with the Jazz Minds family. My performance was dedicated to Santino (one of my vocal heroes who I met at the Dragon Upstairs two years prior). I will miss you Santino! Thank you so much for all that you've mentored me about Santino! Your vocal skills blow my mind.

Yoo! my brother from another MOUTHer!!
That's fresh logo as you are! Come down Japan and let's rock together!!

Aloha, Jason!!! So glad we connected. Great picture of you & Pastor Clint!

Keep spreading God's Word as you live your life.

God bless!

Super talented and what an awesome video!!!!! Blessings on this journey of yours where I hope you can inspire the younger generations with a twist of our culture and modern hip hop genre. This sure brings back childhood memories of mine taking ukulele lessons at roy sakuma in kaimuki and dancing for 24/7 danceforce ... the good old days hehehe!!!! Aloha :)

I like all of them, but as a personal brand the one done by the media company with the outline and Hawaii's Human Beatbox is my favorite. Tom Thum is so dope in everything he does but in this instance, as far as a brand logo, I like the last one on the post. Maybe mess with colors etc. have an aloha version maybe.

Love the Ton Thum logo...Dope!

So dope, all of it! :D

I really appreciate this logo and it has flavor and style!

I think ur logo great jason and cool also u shouldnt change that way its great

Aloha Jason,

Thank you for your kind words, this is a unique and awesome video, keep inspiring others to do well in their life, keep up with the beatboxing, it takes a lot of practice and dedicatication towards your goals what you want to achieve in life, I think you found it! Keep spreading the positive vibes it’s nice in meeting a new friends Aloha!

Awesome! So high energy and amazing spirit! Keep spreading your talents and positive vibes, God knows we need more love, laughter and aloha in this world!

Love your heroes :D Some of them at are mine too. Amazing journey and talent. But more importantly, you have a beautiful Soul and spirit Jason, and it's really nice to meet people like you :)

You are a man of many talents! A true renaissance man.
Every time I hear a gecko in my house, I feel a sense of peace. Gecko Man!

That is such a neat story and cool creation to use from it! I believe Jason Tom becomes more and more creative because he has an audience to speak to. Keep expressing JT! We're absorbing you!!

I am glad you are putting your dreams into reality! The only way to progress is to always push forward. Every step will lead you to your destination. I am wondering what your plans are for this logo? Honest opinion, visually, the color of him is a little washed out. Depending on how you brand this and use it, people may not understand what this is, but is an amazing vector and captures your personality and essence. I can't wait to see where this takes you!

I really like the concept and the drawing! Really moves the reader
