My wife helped me film this. I'm glad she puts up with me, because I was criticizing her camera work.

So the guy from the Big Island, Braxton Rocha, who got nomm'd on by a Tiger Shark, has no health insurance and has set up a Gofundme page to cover medical expenses.
Mr. Rocha has gained some notoriety because he posted the aftermath of the attack while waiting to be transferred to an ambulance. (If you see the video on YouTube, it is wince-inducing). Anyway, so I go to his GoFundMe page (https://www.gofundme.com/tu4n4c8k), to see how it is doing and discover this little gem:

Ha! I totally would have killed that shark.

It would have choked to death on the massive amounts of poo I would have let out.

How time works: When the clock strikes 12, that's it. It's already midnight. Too many romantics out there. They want clocks to strike 12 at the 12th ring.
Parents, teach your children about atomic clocks and science, because we need people who can sit back and chuckle at the romantics.

Kikaider Reboot. I'm sorely tempted to go. Interested persons can find info about the Hawaii screening on another un-named social media site. Let's call it VisageTome

Added the new 90-second trailer for Ten Shimoyama's Kikaider REBOOT (out May 24, 2014).

Jingi Irie stars as Jiro, aka Kikaider, a powerful android created by ARK Project robotics expert Nobuhiko Komyoji. Kikaider's nemesis Hakaider makes his appearance at the 50-second mark and some battle footage follows.

My wife and I enjoyed the pictures of the original series at the end. It made me want to look at the original series again. I don't feel it was worth the $30.00 for two tickets though.

Shipping woes. OK, $700.00 worth of car parts for my truck (online shopping is awesome!)
Now to calculate shipping...OMG! Back to square one...

shipping quotes to HI are often calculated incorrectly online.  If you call sometimes you can get a more accurate actual cost for USPS or FedEx/UPS.  good luck!

This was painful to watch. How many other people thought of the scene in the original "Total Recall" movie?

In case you are missing the soundtrack...(open in another tab and have it play) Henry Mancini's 'Baby Elephant Walk'

Did you check to see if the switch was set to "evil"?

Enjoying a Capri Sun drink this morning and I had a thought on what would be one of the worst advertising campaigns possible.
"Capri Sun, Suck our sack!"

Bruce Lortz's +1's are the things they like, agree with, or want to recommend.
I called for a replacement hood on a 1991 Toyota Pickup. A person (I think his name was Craig) took down my info and promised to call back. Got a call back within 30 minutes, the guy said they had a 1995 Toyota 4Runner hood that should be a direct swap. I drove down, paid $200.00 for the hood and swapped it in their parking lot. They even took the old hold to throw it away for me.

Dim Sum for late Sunday Lunch. Service was fast and excellent. Food was exceptional. My wife and her friend ordered, so I don't know any names...but we had some Taro thing, some seaweed wrapped shrimp thing, some noodles, more shrimp thingies (x2 for those) and some other dumpling things that you had to eat with a spoon and a ginger+vinegar sauce. I had two beers and the girls had some sort of Ice Tea that looked like mud (They seemed to like it). Total cost was in the $70 range for the three of us.

The time from ordering food to delivery has always been very fast. Food quality has been above-average. They have a take-out window that I always see bustling with local kids buying lunches and snacks. Service has been spotty once or twice (out of the dozens of times my wife and I have been there), but it's a small place and I have no problem with getting up and checking at the counter for things. By and large service has been exceptional.

Any Radio Shack employee on island will send you here if Radio Shack doesn't have it. Prices for components and wire are very low. Some items (tools, networking supply) are generally equal to or less than 'mail order + shipping'. Selection is remarkable. Staff is excellent. Phone is always answered very quickly by a real human being. Easy to miss from the street.

Met up with some friends for my wife's birthday recently. Granted, this was on a Thursday, but Friday was a holiday, so I guess that counts as a Friday. Because the wife and I had missed dinner, we ordered the burgers (and good thing too). Served promptly, with the standard fare (fries and fixings) the burgers were great. And the other foods as well. Wife asked for some special fancy martini drink and the bartender was able to deliver a home run (oooh, sports metaphor!). Beers were kept topped up by a watchful staff and a good time had by all. I listed this place as "Inexpensive" but to be honest, that's because my wife's friends were buying for the both of us and I have no idea what the bill was. Unfortunately, we did not try the Karaoke room (I didn't notice it until we were leaving), or the pool tables, or the darts. We just got sloshed, fat and happy, then waddled out to the car. Because I always try to list something negative (I feel it's important to a good review), I guess I would say the parking lot is a little small, however, if you carpool, you can be the designated drunk, so go with friends.

I always come here for my home projects. Whereas Radio Shack never seems to have the right parts for my projects, these guys always seem to have the right stuff. I like the fact that they sell cases of soda as well, it's always better to avoid another stop. Although, I'd like it more if they sold beer. Staff is knowledgeable, helpful,and friendly. Currently working on my collection of 100+ Anniversary T-Shirts (I missed 112 years...damnit). Only bad thing I could say is that they could use a better website, but then again, you can simply call them for checking stock, and really it's so close and convenient for me, I'll just drive down to check.

My biggest issue with this place is their inventory. Granted, that seems to be a problem with all Radio Shack stores nowadays. Too much shelf space is dedicated to items that are carried by other stores. The employees have always been helpful, knowledgeable, and polite. 5 star employees in a 2 star store. The Radio Shack website is everything that I would expect a top tier company to have, but the lack of material at local stores simply turns it into a bad version of Amazon. However! I must say that the most overlooked gift items for this coming holiday season is the small do-it-yourself kits of electronic projects. These things make good stocking stuffers for people who are not afraid of their child growing up to be a nerd.
