Happy 2011 to All

January 2, 2011 at 09:13AM

Happy 2011 to all!! It feels good to be Twenty-Eleven!

I've personally been waiting for 2011 for a long while now ever since I came back to Honolulu from NYC in September 2010. I often feel, now more than before, that time is behind and it needs to catch up. You ever felt or feel that way or is it just me?

How was your 2010? Have you reflected upon your reach of goals, dreams and aspirations in 2010?

Reflecting back: year 2010 was a productive one and I would title it the "Year of the Hustle." I worked against many odds and set backs. Set backs that could go on for days. But I'll blog just about one: I went without a working home computer for the majority of 2010. I adapted best I could to the limited net access (folks that know me know that I don't have a cell phone

Hawaii Sensation Jason Tom, beat boxer


December 24, 2008 08:12 PM | by Maimounah Masudi



Over the years I have seen all kinds of musical talents from different parts of the country and the world. I love the ones that bring something new or something old with a fresh twist on it, not straying too much from the origin. One day I came across a guy on a website that was a music artist. He was very different from the average music artists in that he performed without any background music. The music was actually coming from within him. He himself was actually a musical instrument. I was amazed at his talent. He has fresh sounds, you can see the energy popping off of him,…

Rocket scientists discover Pimpbox???

July 20, 2008 at 06:03AM

Rocket scientists recently found out that if you were to mix Jason Tom beatboxing with Pimpbot, then the "t" (from "bot") tilts to the left, and you get Pimpbox. Okay, that ain't true about the rocket science part, but you should get the idea at the very least.
