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 creative juices were certainly flowing back in early 2008. So besides my own stuff, I also made a few videos of my friends playing music.
This Video is of my friends John, Eli and Kodia playing at Kainoa’s. They called the band Theodora and did all instrumental, cool freestyle stuff.
It would be much later that I started using Facebook more for sharing my art and music and the art and music of my friends. In 2008, I was using mostly YouTube for that.
