Video: Rotten Turkey Spam Bought From Walmart in Hawaii

YouTube user Kenny Jin just uploaded this video entitled, “Rotten turkey spam bought from Walmart in Hawaii” and when you view the video… you will definitely see that it’s rotten!

I'll say it's rotten and possibly has dead worms?

I’m not sure where it was purchased, however “Kenny” explains in the video that the expiration date says best by May 2016.

Last year, Lehua’s incredible birth video touched the hearts and minds of millions after debuting on YouTube.

The crystal clear underwater footage documented the fascinating first moments of the young calf’s life. Lehua’s mom, Keo, was also born at Dolphin Quest Hawaii, making Lehua Dolphin Quest’s first second-generation calf.

Dolphin Quest Hawaii trainers and some lucky young guests joined in Lehua’s birthday fun and festivities on Tuesday. Lehua was greeted with a chorus of “Happy Birthday”, and a delicious birthday treat. The adorable kids who participated in the event had the opportunity to meet young Lehua while learning about dolphins and ocean conservation. Video of Lehua’s birthday celebration can be seen on Dolphin Quest’s YouTube channel and on their Facebook page in a segment called the “Dolphin Calf Chronicles”.

“Lehua is an amazing ambassador, inspiring guests from all over the world to be passionate about dolphins and their ocean environment,” says Lauren Prutow-McKenna, senior dolphin trainer at Dolphin Quest.

According to Tim Murphy, General Manager of Dolphin Quest Hawaii, “Lehua’s birthday is not only a celebration of an incredible dolphin, but it is also a testament to the top-notch animal and veterinary caretakers who ensure that all of our dolphins are well-loved and well-cared for at Dolphin Quest.”

Residents of Hawaii and military personnel who would like to wish Lehua “Happy Birthday” in person can enjoy a special 15% discount on select dolphin interaction programs through the end of the year. Reservations can be made by calling Dolphin Quest or visiting the Dolphin Quest Web site.

Dolphin Quest is an international organization known for its creative approach to education, its commitment to ocean wildlife research, its exemplary animal health care and its successful breeding programs. The innovative encounter programs featured at the Dolphin Quest locations in Hawaii and Bermuda promote a spirit of connection to the marvels of the oceans.

LYRICS:

We’re just a couple of guys
who are wearing visors in Hawaii
Now we’re having a candlelit dinner,
waiter brought me Ahi.
I said Mahi Mahi, not Ahi,
but I bet that’s a common mistake
when you take the order from a guy
who stutters when he orders tuna steak.
They freakin’ sound the same.
Why they name the fish like that?
Nevermind let me get to the point of the song.
This fish name tangent got me side-tracked.
We’re a couple of guys in Hawaii.
There is nothing wrong with a couple guys
enjoying time together.
We’re a couple of guys in Hawaii.
We’re wearing beach shorts
sitting out enjoying the weather.
We’re spending New Years in Hawaii.
New Years, Hawaii, with a guy,
he’s just my friend, that’s it. Uh!
What you think about New Years Eve tradition?
Midnight happens, people start kissin’.
That’s a tradition we’ll be missin’
cause we are just friends.
Maybe later we will talk to some honeys,
buy them some drinks, waste our money,
but first we want to count the stars,
and trace them with our hands.
Tell me why a couple guys
looking up in the sky
implies anything
other than a deep deep friendship?
Look me in the eyes and tell me why why,
Tell me why wah why
wicka wicka wah wah?
Just a couple of guys in Hawaii waii waii.
Hawaii, wah wahh wah,
wicka wicka wah wah.
It’s gettin’ pretty cold,
if I told you I wanna hold you,
would that be too bold?
Come here.
We’re a couple of guys in Hawaii.
There is nothing wrong with a couple guys
enjoying time together.
We’re a couple of guys in Hawaii.
We’re wearing beach shorts
sitting out enjoying the weather.
We’re spending New Years in Hawaii.
New Years, Hawaii, with a guy,
he’s just my friend, that’s it. Out

Next Stop TV – Big Island Edition Now Available on YouTube

In March of 2011, I was asked to be on the television show Next Stop TV where they filmed some adventures that were done here on the Big Island and the segment I was in was with Hawaii Forest & Trail.

Me inside the “Pinz” with Next Stop TV host John Olson.

The show aired a few months after we filmed it in different parts of America and I just noticed that Next Stop TV has loaded the full episode to YouTube and is now available for viewing:

Vote for Your Favorite Student Film by November 26

Eleven short films created by island students for the park’s Digital Mountain Film Festival are ready for viewing and voting on YouTube: http://www.youtube.com/user/DigitalMountain2012?feature=watch. Each film is approximately three minutes in length.

Eleven films were entered. Click for more details.

The last day to vote is Mon., Nov. 26. Send votes to Park Ranger Kūpono McDaniel by email at kupono_mcdaniel@nps.gov.

The public is also invited to attend the fourth annual Digital Mountain Film Festival, held at the park’s Kīlauea Visitor Center on Sat., Dec. 1. A potluck celebration starts at 5:30 p.m. (please bring a dish), and the film festival gets underway at 6 p.m. Winners, who have a chance to win Mac laptop computers and digital cameras, will be announced at the festival.

“It’s very inspirational and enlightening to see how our island youth perceive Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park. They understand the park isn’t just for tourists but is their park, too. I hope everyone has a chance to vote for their favorite film and come and celebrate our talented youth at the film festival,” McDaniel said.

This project was made possible in part by a grant from the National Park Foundation through the generous support of L.L. Bean, Disney, the Anschutz Foundation, and the Ahmanson Foundation.

Additional help, funding, and support comes from the Friends of Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park, Hawai‘i Pacific Parks Association, and the Big Island Film Office.

“This is an opportunity not only for students to express what Hawai‘i Volcanoes National Park means to them in a creative, fun way, but for the park to see how we are perceived by our youth – the ones who will be the future stewards of public lands,” said McDaniel.

The short films will be uploaded by park staff to YouTube, and the public will be able to vote for their favorite films online starting Nov. 12. The deadline for all entrants is Nov. 5. The park will loan cameras to students who need them.

The Digital Mountain Film Festival culminates on Dec. 1 at 6 p.m. with a celebration and public showing of the films at the park’s Kīlauea Visitor Center Auditorium. Winners, who have a chance to win Mac laptop computers and digital cameras, will be announced at the festival.

Jellyfish to Be Banned From Hawaii Shorelines… NOT

A website setup to prank tourists was set up in 2010 called Hawaii Humor.Com

I just came across the following youtube clip and had a good laugh at the tourists that actually believed they were being filmed for a legitimate news station.

[youtube=http://youtu.be/5_OqWJgxIMY]

Hawaii Humor is a hidden camera prank show based on Oahu, covering all the islands with a Hawaiian flair.  If your a tourist or a local, look out! YOU might get pranked by HawaiiHumor.com!  With our unique blend of comedic pranks and special celebrity guest stars both local and from afar.

Looking at their facebook page, it seems like they haven’t been that active of late as this was one of their first videos and I can’t seem to find anymore just yet.

Just a CRAZY Saturday Video

Check out this video of this Australian tourist videotaping glaciers.

All of a sudden the glacier has a huge landslide creating a tsunami type of wave that almost took these folks out!

3rd Annual Art at the Capitol, April 1, 2011 – YouTube Video Preview Series

Media Release:

The Hawai‘i State Legislature will open its doors for April’s First Friday event with the 3rd Annual “Art at the Capitol,” an opportunity for the public to view over 460 works of art that are a part of the State’s Art in Public Places Collection (APP), meet legislators and talk with local visual artists. The event will be held on Friday, April 1, 2011 from 5 to 7 p.m., with a short program on the third floor to start at 4:45 p.m.

A video series, called “Art at the Capitol 2011: What’s on your wall?”, recently launched on the Art at the Capitol YouTube and Facebook accounts and will preview some of the pieces of art in the offices of lawmakers. Two new videos featuring a representative and senator talking about an artwork from their office will be posted daily until the day of the event. The YouTube link is http://www.youtube.com/artatthecapitolhi, and the Facebook page can be found by searching “Art at the Capitol” in the Facebook search bar.

While election season marks change in the political arena, so holds true for the art work displayed in the Capitol offices. The APP staff has been meeting since December with elected officials and personnel to rotate and select art for the various offices. About 50 new pieces have been added to the Capitol collection.

This year’s theme is “State of the Art” and will feature renowned local artist Doug Young, who designed the Kapolei Court Complex’s five multistory art glass windows inspired by area ocean wave patterns. The theme is a play on the “State of the State” and a nod to the State Foundation of Culture and the Arts’ (SFCA) success in bringing art, culture and history to our visual surroundings and establishing programs that highlight local artists.
