 Jason Tom Dot Com Celebrates 10 Year Anniversary Jason Tom Waikiki Performance

Yes, ladies and gentlemen, Friday, February 2nd, 2018, marked my official website JasonTom.com's 10th anniversary birthday. I wrote it down as a reminder on my notebook that I would do a post to celebrate it. Let's celebrate together JasonTom.com's 10 Year Anniversary and Birthday. I've had JasonTom.com as my domain name off and on for 17 years which matches the same amount of time I've learned to use the Internet, and officially it has been 10 consecutive years that I've not wavered to dedicate my love, passion, effort, and commitment to make it be what it is today. I've poured in and out ounces of energy, time and resources to be steadfast to maintain my official website and blog with quality and consistent content. The Jason Tom official site has gone thro…

How I Overcame Illiteracy

February 14, 2018 at 12:10AM

Happy Valentine's Day to You and Yours! I also wrote and published this post for "The Bachelorette" blog series dedicated to all Bachelorettes who could be my Valentine. In this Life blog series, I will share how I overcame illiteracy. If someone told me 20 years ago that I will have an official website with the domain name JasonTom.com and be an author of a Music, Hip Hop And Faith Life Blog that engages 2.3 million page views and 2.1 million unique visitors, averaging 2,000 plus page views and visits per day, it may have challenged me to fathom it.

20 years ago at this time in 1998, I had no computer, I was self-conscious, felt socially awkward as a 15 year old, still searching to find myself. I attempted my hand at basketball during a summer league, bec…

To The Bachelorette

October 25, 2017 at 12:24PM

To the bachelorette out there, seek, find, get to know, and marry the bachelor and man of valor who is a mathematician that loves the person of God, first and foremost. He also has to know how to moonwalk and beatbox.

He looks and sounds like this... watch and listen to the video below:

The bachelor in slow motion:

Why a mathematician?
​1. He'll multiply with you.
2. He will not get flustered or frustrated by difficult problems, no matter how complex.
3. He is solution minded and in a relationship he is steadfast that the relationship is compatible and peaceful.
4. He will subtract the negative integer distraction.
5. He will add quality time into his productive sche…

HI*Sessions Photo Tease

October 18, 2017 at 09:49AM

I recently filmed on location my HI*Sessions episodes at the Koʻolau Ballrooms & Conference Center in Kaneohe. There are those of you who messaged, e-mailed and inbox'd to ask when my HI*Sessions will launch. It was a pleasure working with the HI*Sessions Team and my episodes are in post production. I am stoked that you guys expressed how you can't wait. I am with you on that. I followed up with HI*Sessions and I learned that my episodes could launch December of this year or January of next year. Stay plugged in to my blog and newsletter to stay up to date with me. I want to thank Jon Yamasato, Dave Kusumoto, Shayna Kusumoto, Kawika Lopez, Darin Leong, Lance Lopes, Vance Morimoto, Justin, Dayton Watanabe, Taimane Gardner, Jazzy Jazz, Carissa "Bubbles" Kano, the …

Her Math Tutor Can Dance

August 26, 2017 at 04:03AM

I want to thank those of you (and you know who you are) that made it to my Uplift opening showcase at Ala Moana Centerstage that also featured one of the new students of the Human Beatbox Academy and dancers of reLITE, Prisma Dance, Playground Dance Studio, and the Kazu Clan. You know I am a child of the 1980's, because I beatbox and moonwalk as though the 1980's were yesterday. My math tutee has a sense of humor in how she shared my video of my Uplift opener at Ala Moana Centerstage and her hashtag read, "my math tutor can dance." What? A mathematician who can beatbox and moonwalk and dance? Get out! That is unheard of, how is that logical? Yes, it is possible.

Legend of Zelda Story at Hot Topic

April 15, 2017 at 01:22PM

Two years ago I met this trio Jennifer, Jeffrey and Charley at the Legend of Zelda section of the Ala Moana Center's Hot Topic store and one of them recognized me from one of my past performances at a hip-hop jam. I shared with them I was shopping for Legend of Zelda gear as I am about to prepare for my friend's son's 1st Birthday Party and the party theme is the Legend of Zelda. Then last year, Charley and Jennifer as well as the Kaimuki High School Band supported and voted for me in the NextNext Hawaii Music Competition and Charity Event where the proceeds from their votes went to the charity of my choice, the Ronald McDonald House Hawaii. Jennifer also shared with me that she was assisted by the Ronald McDonald House Charity and this meant so much to her a…

Ukulele And Beatbox Lesson

April 11, 2017 at 01:13AM

Jody Kamisato and Jason Tom with this Ukulele Beatbox Collaborative Tutorial. An ukulele which means "jumping flea" is a 4-string instrument and is an adaptation of the Portuguese machete. The ukulele was invented in our Hawaiian islands during the plantation period and was introduced into our Hawaiian music culture throughout our Hawaiian islands that eventually spread throughout the United States of America and the world. It's an instrument that nearly all residents young and old of our Hawaiian islands pick up and start playing and have probably at one point picked up playing and tried it. Beatboxing originates in a cappella vocal art tradition from the musical stylings and genre of jazz with scat singing and the urban hip-hop music culture and can be traced e…

Good job in leading the men at your life group. What an awesome time of fellowship and getting into the word.
I liked the video of you at the radio station. Looks like you had a great time there.

Thank you for sharing and happy 10 year anniversary on Jason.com.

Jason Tom You are amazing. I listened all your interview. You were right in everything you said. "the more we age the more we learn..." "because if we stop learning we stop growing" This part I loved the most, but also I loved the way you talked. Man, you know how to talk ! Your talk seemed very relaxed, and friendly, and I loved listening your voice until the end. I am really proud of you. ♥️ Has been an honor to listen you during almost one hour, and at the end I really was surprised that you mentioned my name first. I am so happy for that ♥️ Keep doing same good work with your beatbox, keep growing. I'm sending you all my LOVE , and thanks a lot for thinking of me during your interview. I really appreciate. ♥️♥️♥️
