Welcome Aboard Traci Toguchi

It’s been awhile since I’ve been on Oahu so I don’t follow folks that closely as much as used to when I was living there.

These are the Oahu folks that I currently follow on my Blogroll:

There is another great blog that I’m going to be following a bit more closely.

And that’s Traci Toguchi’s Blog.

Says Traci, “I’m inspired by people who choose to see the good and let that be their guide through the ups and downs in life.”

They were able to get together while Aric was here in Hawaii on the So Much More Hawaii Tour and they put together the following show on the popular online radio show “Rough Sundays” where Traci was the Co-Host:

from a ridiculous balcony in waikiki, a slight change to the show this week. co-hosted by a former miss hawaii, we’ll play a few oldies, but more current locals you should be checking out. a grammy-nominated artist walks us through ’slack-key’, the island’s most well-known dj pops in, a larger-than-life legend and much more

Mahalo Traci Toguchi (Part 2)

A few days ago I posted about the power of Twitter and how it had connected me between a pretty famous blogger, Aric S. Queen, and former Miss Hawaii turned recording artist Traci Toguchi.

Today I got the second part of her package.

Mahalo Traci! The Power of Twitter

Holy Cow! I’m now a firm believer in Twitter.

At first I was a bit hesitant about a message board system where you could only use 140 character messages that went away into twitterland after you were pau sending them.

When I first joined, I only added a few people that I knew and then a few names that sounded local.  After I gained a bit more confidence I started adding a few more local sounding names that other people were following.  Slowly but slowly I started adding more and more local people and more and more people began following me.

One of the “local” sounding names I started to follow was somebody by the name “Traci Toguchi“.   The name sounded local and I liked what it said on her “Twitter Bio”

I didn’t really think anything of it and I just continued on as I normally do on twitter watching people and seeing what they are doing, and just being niele in general. That’s what Twitter is all about right?

Well I can’t remember exactly what I said to Traci, but I said something and we started tweeting back and forth for a few days. Finally I thought to myself who is this and actually looked at her website on her twitter site.

I was stunned to learn that I was “tweeting” with former “Miss Hawaii” Traci Toguchi.

Well I continued to joke around with her about life and just things in general.  I find out that after the Beauty pageant she has gone on to do many things like become an Actress where she was on Lost.

Here is just a list of some of her entertainment highlights:

• Recording Artist/Songwriter/Publisher, including writing and singing the theme songs for “Better” (U.S. syndication) and “More” national TV shows

• Hoku Award nominee for Female Vocalist of the Year

• Miss Saigon Broadway tour cast member

• Actor in TV and films including Lost, Hawaii, BlackMale, The Karate Kid Part II, CDW Technology national commercials

• National Anthem Singer on ESPN live worldwide broadcasts. Won talent competitions including Amateur Night at the Apollo in Harlem, New York.

So as I’m continuing to learn twitter, I find out about the So Much More Hawaii Bloggers that are coming here from the mainland.

Well immediately I hit it off with one of them named Aric S. Queen.

I’ll be blogging more about Aric in the future as he is about to embark on a cool project himself.  His twitter profile reads:

Original Executive Producer of ChinesePod.com, The Shanghai Show, The Shanghai Diaires, Rough Sundays and more. I’m about to try a travel + Twitter project…

Well Aric put out a notice on Twitter saying he was looking for local talent while he was here in Hawaii to be on one of  his shows coming up on his online podcast radio show that goes out world wide called “Rough Sundays“.

I did a cyber introduction between the two of them and I can now confirm that Traci will be on an upcoming show.

The next thing you know she tells me if I give her my address she will send my family an autographed picture of her!   I was like no way… for real!!!

I forgot all about it and then just yesterday I got a little package in the mail.  She not only is sending me an autographed picture of her… she sent me a copy of her new CD entitled Traci Toguchi “Feel the Breeze”.

My son is fan already!

My son is a "Traci" fan already!

To make a long story short, I’ve made two really cool friends in the last few days that I’m stoked to have had the chance to assist them with things the way I can. I just noticed Traci even linked my blog to her “Kewl News” section (THANKS TRACI)

As soon as Aric’s Podcast is available I’ll link to that. In the meantime, here is a little message and nice song from Traci:

So you folks are thinking big deal… so what… you got a free autographed CD from someone famous because of Twitter… Well that’s not the only thing that Twitter has brought my way.

Last night, I got a free night at the nicest hotel in all of Hawaii the Hilton Waikoloa Village Hotel where I got a chance to personally meet and spend time with Aric.

I’ll be posting more about the hotel and my time spent with Aric a little later as he’s about to embark on something big himself.

Here’s a couple pictures from the Hotel and I’ll blog more on that adventure later!
