I am saddened to hear of the recent closing of Fresh Cafe Kakaako and Fresh Cafe Downtown! The downtown location was where the Honolulu Star-Advertiser interviewed me for a Today cover feature. I've also beatboxed there for First Fridays and other events. I remember it like it was yesterday when I beatboxed at one of the Kakaako location's first hip-hop events Last Call (2009), Freelance Brand's Apex (2010) & Trilogy II (2012), National Dance Week Hawaii All-Style Battle (2011), and Hawaii Slam's First Thursdays Poetry Slam & Open Mic (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015).

Here I am beatboxing for HawaiiSlam's First Thursdays at Fresh C…

Beatboxing In Chinatown
Jason Tom

Jason Tom, 29, is a beatboxer whose unique sounds landed him in the world of slam poetry. He has been involved with slam poetry for six years now. Tom's intersection of beatboxing and slam poetry makes him a special breed in Chinatown. He said that the beauty of the two art forms is that both utilize the human voice.

Tom lives in the heart of Chinatown and he draws inspiration from the streets and people. His favorite place to watch his fellow slam poets is Fresh Cafe on Queen Street. Fresh Cafe hosts HawaiiSlam, the hottest event on First Thursdays to enjoy the poetry and some friendly competition. He has learned a lot of life lessons from the spiritually and highly philosophical elements of slam…

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.
