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.

kaui cuts

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

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

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.

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

The famous silver sword.

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

This is one of the real posters.

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!

Make America great again! Because this beer sucks…

kahului sugar factory

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

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