Manoa Library Closing: Nothing Like Getting Your Star-Bulletin on Youtube

I think most of us have come to a conclusion that Star-Bulletin is fighting to stay alive.  They have recently started a youtube site that can be viewed here.

Behind the Scenes at KWXX… DC in the Morning, Kat, Keala, and Production Director Dave Angell

So DCB97 still owes me a chance at blogging one of his featured guests on one of his morning radio shows… and SINCE he still hasn’t gotten Michael Jackson to show up and do an interview…  I  had to do a little investigating to see if good old DC had something up his sleaves… and sure enough… here it is.

Behind the Scenes at KWXX:

These are some of the crazy people I work with. Kat from KWXX recording a commercial with our Production Director (Cptn) Dave Angell. Ke’ala from the KWXX morning show also makes an appearance. As you can see here, we take our job quite seriously.

UH Hilo 3… Damon 0

It’s been a long time since the last time I needed to go to UH Hilo.

The drive up Kawili St.

I remember reading Hunter Bishops blog awhile back and the problem that he had with the parking, so I went prepared with a camera.

I used to live on this campus so I knew that if I just kept driving around for awhile I would eventually find a spot.

It was pretty interesting seeing all of the illegally parked cars:

No parking anytime

But when you’re running late for class, sometimes you ignore obvious signs:

And if you have the right type of car, you create your own parking:

Even the employee parking lots were under construction:

Leaving even the State cars desperate for spots to park:

I continued to look for a spot thinking the kids would be getting out of class soon:

I finally gave up and paid the simple $3.00 just to go see a professor who ended up not being in because it was a non-instructional day!
