Steve Hartman's stories are almost always amazing! "Michigan middle school football team conspires for touching touchdown" via CBS.com
A couple of years back (before it was on anyone's radar that he'd be taking up "The Tonight Show" mantle from Jay Leno!), Late night host Jimmy Fallon talked with Ellen about dressing up as a woman for his skits:
I can't get enough of "Late Night with Jimmy Fallon" sketches! One of my favorite moments is when he and his staff tackle popular TV shows...like "Real Housewives":
A reality show in the UK - "Educating Yorkshire" - followed students and teachers over a year's time and one standout was Musharaf "Mushy" Asghar...
"The King's Speech" is one of my favorite movies. Here's the scene that Musharaf's teacher, Mr. Matthew Burton spoke of:
Michael Paulo presented another wonderful line up with his signature "Pacific Rim Jazz Festival" at the Hawaii Convention Center (11/2/13).
Brief video clips as I was swept up in the live performances from Mr. Bobby Caldwell...
...and Ms. Sheila E! She brought the crowd to their feet AND invited people to dance in the aisles and on stage. She also reminded kindly to return off the stage after that first song *wink!*...good fun!
The night before, I had the honor to meet a few of the artists from the "Infiniti Pacific Rim Jazz Festival" at the Leahi Club Lounge in the Sheraton Waikiki.

Super kawai! "Pop art" make up has been making its way to the mainstream and what better way to ease into it than for Halloween:
Seems this is an annual event and a happy gathering of pets and their parents ;)
This is a fun DIY/moderately easy way to get into Halloween (this young woman has the "'80's look" down and her commentary about why the '80's were as they were fashion-wise cracked me up!):
More pets in Halloween costumes...oh, okay!
Wow! This young lady created a "Face in a Face" piece that could really trip people out!:

Living in Hawaii is kind of awesome! Sometimes even I forget that people who have never had the chance to visit our shores only catch glimpes through movies, TV shows and music videos.
Actress/entertainer Tia Carrere and musician Daniel Ho were part of a pre-telecast of the Grammy Awards a few years back and they performed "He Aloha Mele":
Most Hawaii people (naturally) share with others a snapshot of the energy, happiness and warmth (on our collective Bestest days!!!), like NA KOA ALII HAWAII ALL-STATE MARCHING BAND 2014.
Na Koa Ali'i Hawai'i All-State Marching Band are appearing in the Rose Bowl Parade in Pasadena next January. They've made other hi-pro appearances, like the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (New York City 2011):
Lucky for us that we are already on island for next month's kick off of the 2013 Vans Triple Crown of Surfing:
