Aaron Boothe in Historic Wailuku Town. Son of Pekelo Cosmos, Aaron plays a mean guitar and sings a pretty but gritty song.

Predawn Voices,” a Cloud Hands Project song recorded in August 2016 features Aaron on electric.

The Sugar Company is getting their last crop in. Hopefully, they will replace the sugar with hemp, but I’m guessing that housing and commercial developers have different plans.

Yes, that’s a commercial jet landing at OGG…

papaya

Ah yes, the ripening fruit.

pineapple,lilikoi

Home grown pineapple and lilikoi. Lilikoi has been scarce this summer. Lack of bees…

Let’s blame Monsanto for that.

bula

Kahuna Bula picks noni leaves and camphor to make a poultice for Takako’s leg injury.

kaui cuts

Making a ti leaf skirt is quite labor intensive and time consuming.

jun ti leaf skirt,kaui3

Junko will be making her own, soon! As soon as I bring back 200 ti leaves…

observatory

observatory4

The controversial observatory on Haleakala. Give them an inch and they’ll take the summit.

drone

Tourists bring a drone to the summit. The ranger did not like that. Not at all.

drone2

They quickly played the conspiracy card: “Secret stuff up here they don’t want you to see, right?”

dustin,takako_3

Dustin and Takako were at Anekona with Matt Papich (he played with Dustin in Ecstatic Sunshine a few years back before Ponytail) to mix Dustin and Takako’s new album.

silversword4

The famous silver sword.

not iichiko

Tourists leave rubbish. I turned it into an Iichiko Shochu homage.

iichiko

This is one of the real posters.

“Coming down, from the mountain. My lady waits for me…”

matt ulu pound

Matt pounds ulu (breadfruit). This is a superfood that could end world hunger. Yeah, right…

america2

This was a Budweiser, but is now “America.” If you drink enough, it could end world peace… Yeah, right!

kahului sugar factory

Subtle. Subliminal. No one cares. It’s all about the money.

matt

Matt is the sonic director adding depth and oomph with side chains.

Here’s to a successful album!

surfjack pool

Surf Jack Hotel. A boutique hotel that a couple of friends work at. It’s an artful renovation.

However, this is the view from the room.

And if you look closer…

You can see the sleeping man in an apartment across the street.
