Jason Tom on Shaka Talk episode 5

October 13, 2009 at 09:09PM

This Thursday night the 5th episode of Shaka Talk will have its television premiere on ‘Ōlelo 52 at 11:59PM. I believe a YouTube commercial of it is in the making as I type.

The 5th episode will feature a half-hour interview I did with show host Diar "D.R." Rhea and co-host Edna McMan. It's my first full length video/TV interview, and it was recorded before I left for Los Angeles. The Shaka Talk interview was fun to do. I want to thank Doug Upp (I've known Doug ever since I started performing LIVE back in 2004) for inviting me and of course all of his past & future guests on the show. Shaka Talk is about the guests that it features. I also want to thank Ty for his awesome work as well.

I know there are those of you out there who don't own a television or have…

Word of Life Emerge and ISA LA 09

September 2, 2009 at 09:56AM

I performed for Emergeʻs "5 Minutes of Fame" event at the Word of Life Christian Center (WOLCC) this past Friday, and I had a good time. Of my 5 years of live beatbox performing experience I personally consider WOLCC to have the best live sound system and stage on the island.

I performed...

- Romans 12:2 (a scripture from the Holy Bible NIV)
- Billie Jean by Michael Jackson (with the dance intro, vocals, and the moonwalk)
- Listen Carefully by Jason Tom (one of my originals with vocals)
- then I capped it off with an idea I worked on that same morning just to experiment live for the first time as an outro

 

Since Iʻm currently very limited to my Internet access I might as well post up whatʻs coming up now on this blog...

 

1. Iʻll be filming for a half…

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

Cool story bro.

This is pretty dope! And cute story

It's an awesome drawing.

Awesome J! Thx for sharing, really dig Gecko Man! Cool to hear about your personal experiences and how they influence your art. Keep it up man, you're rocking it!

As much as I hate Geckos this is super duper cool!!

Awesome bro! I think the story behind it seals the deal. Keep up the good work and keep doing you!

Super cute! I love this!

<3

You're very talented Jason!!!!!
I thought this gecko is you tho(´◡͐`)
Awesome work, I really love him!!!!!!

I love it. I love gecko's . The gecko have always brought me so much joy and laughter. When I see a Gecko - I thank Jah - Gecko is so you. Spreading your light to all. I love when they especially share their music. Awesome choice

dope, you could make it into a kids book some how.
