Random Awesomeness

Announcements, rants, affirmations and all else that doesn’t quite fit into the other categories are posted here. From poetry that probably won’t be made into a song, to in-the-moment expressions of thoughts and feelings that probably won’t make it into a story. I will share here, whatever comes to mind and heart. Occasionally, I also may take creative writing pieces from my past, revise and revive them to post here.

4/21/18: Brian’s Bullshit, My Theory of Everything (Part three, The Tao of Traffic)

To expound, expand and experience ideas. Other formats, venues and vehicles have been unsatisfactory. For ideas generated to permeate other creative endeavors. ------ Hope, dream, fear, lament. ------ [...]

4/15/18: Commitments, Confoundments and other Truths

I started this blog over six months ago now by announcing my commitment. My commitment to posting at least something here every day. Thus, the title... the Heading... The Daily Brian! I did not meet that commitment yesterday and that fact has brought up several thoughts, feelings and whatnots. Whatnots that are now conspiring and [...]

1/17/18: Housing Search February 14, 2008

This next video was a fun little exercise. I needed to find a place in town so I wouldn't have to continue to commute from Waialua to my new Handi Van job. A good friend and I were seriously thinking of getting a place together. Anyway, you get the idea, I went on a tour of [...]

1/16/18: Theodora at Kainoa’s February 9, 2008

The above screen shot is from 2008. It was the first video I uploaded to YouTube that was of artists other than myself. I was still living in Waialua, on the north shore of Oahu and my band Social Smokers was playing regularly at a bar in Haleiwa called "Kainoa's Pancake House and Sports Bar".  The [...]
