Best GoPro video ever: guy puts a GoPro on the conveyor belt in a Japanese sushi restaurant.

"The World Surf League confirmed Monday night that Hawaii surf icon Sunny Garcia is fighting for his life in an intensive care unit at a Portland, Ore., hospital, and it has been widely speculated on the internet that he attempted suicide."

Fricking Star-Ad. I don't know why but I expect more from you. Speculation not merely in the story but in the fricking lede. Stop. It.

Gig economy. EGOT. Garbage time. Some fun additions, plus some new meanings for old words.

All I want every morning when I look at the Star-Advertiser is a new story about the Kealohas. I don't think this is too much to ask.

Criterion Channel launched yesterday. I have to say the selection at first is not as broad as I hoped for, but there’s enough content to keep me busy a while. If this month weren’t Camp NaNoWriMo I’d find time this evening to finally see Rashomon and Sansho the Bailiff.

Little profile I wrote about Maui’s Common Ground Collective, a group founded by alumni of UH Maui’s Sustainable Science Management program. CCG farms idle Maui farmland for the benefit of landowners, charity groups, and the island’s consumers.

MLB dot com's first power rankings are out, and while the top of the list isn't surprising, I find it super interesting that the Braves are at 14, wedged between the Mets and Twins. The NL East is the 2nd-most competitive division in the Majors, and the Braves are excellent but almost surely behind the Nats and Phillies. This could be a thrilling season. :)

If I wasn't already deliberately NOT a member of this FB group, I would leave it now. Nobody is in FAVOR of crime, but this rally doesn't offer solutions. It offers blanket statements worded to stir the mob and not to address the real issues. How is this useful beyond adding fervor to the group's already dangerously vigilante, poisonously schadenfreude tone?

Other ideas: buckets of clams with "250,000 clams" written across them, baskets of bread, and a large deer with "50,000 bucks" painted onto its hide?

I work for a nonprofit. We take a lot of photos of big-hearted people holding gigantic prop checks, but it's such a cliche now. I'm brainstorming alternatives 'though I suspect my boss will laugh and reject them all.

How about corporate executive donors handing over bulging burlap sacks with $$ written on them?

Or a sign made to look like a Venmo transaction, with cute emojis to represent the specific cause? Like a school building, an A+, and a dollar bill for merit scholarships?

It's nice to see our friend Burt Lum in the Pacific Business News Titans of Tech issue, but did anyone else notice something about the demographics across all categories? Or am I being hypersensitive?

I also subscribe to the New York TImes Crossword Puzzle and the American Values Club crossword puzzles, but I don't think those count as media consumption.

It's none of my business, but I'm curious about what people subscribe to for media consumption, not counting internet access. Here's mine, off the top of my head:

Spotify premium
Amazon Prime
Fandor (a gift)
Moviepass (a gift)
The Washington Post
The Honolulu Star-Advertiser
The Athletic
Netflix DVD (yes I do)
Texture ('though I never use it)
Major League Baseball At Bat

I want to add the new Criterion Collection streaming service but I think things are out of control here.

Usually I go to the office for a couple of hours on Saturday hoping to get ahead, but I usually just goof off and fall asleep at my desk. This weekend I actually worked, submitting two assignments. Now I don't know what I'll do with my Monday morning.

also not a bad way to test-run two different mobile apps.

wondering if it's practical to maintain profiles on two instances simultaneously. i have them open in separate tabs. it seems reasonable.


All the news that's fit to toot.
