Father's Day Weekend

June 21, 2011 at 08:20PM

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 au…

The last I saw Walter was not more than a few weeks before the APEX event when he was bouncing at Next Door for a Broadcast event. If you were at least somewhat part of the Hawaii nightlife then you probably had your ID checked by Walter at one …
