First, make sure you listen up at 7:40 for your chance to win a pair of tickets to the Hawaii World Class Wedding Expo this weekend at the Hawaii Convention Center AND a pair of tickets to Erin Smith’s Paramore Tribute, this Saturday at The Republik.
Now for some Pompeii by Bastille:
Let’s think about this from a historical perspective. Pompeii was an ancient Roman City, yes? We all know this right? It was destroyed by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius - I feel like I’m teaching a class. But I digress. The mountain is erupting, you need to get outta dodge, quick. Quickest way, by boat. But of course, the singer is being a pessimist and he says he’s gonna miss the boat lift. Of course you think I’m crazy so listen to it again. He says boat a little weird but you can’t hate a guy for having an accent, right?
We all need our caffeine fix in the morning, right? Even CIA agents. In fact, did you know that the CIA has their own Starbucks in their headquarters in Virginia? You know how secretive they like to be about their identities, so how do they deal with having their names written on their cups? They don’t. That’s right, when you go to the CIA Starbucks, there are no names written on cups. That’s a little paranoid in my opinion. Besides, even if you give a Starbucks barista your real name, they’re gonna butcher it on the cup anyway. You have no idea how many lattes I’ve had to pick up under the name Ferdinand.

We’re officially getting into the Halloween season this week so I figured I’d share some ghost news. A famous ghost known as The Black Eyed Child has began making appearances again after her first sighting, 30 years ago. The ghost got her name because of her coal-black pits for eye sockets. Here’s the latest account of what happened a woman that heard a girl frantically shouting for help” in the UK said:
“We instantly started running towards the noise,” she said. “We couldn’t find the child anywhere and so stopped to catch our breath.
“That’s when I turned round and saw a girl stood behind me, no more than 10 years old, with her hands over her eyes.
“It was as if she was waiting for a birthday cake.
“I asked if she was OK and if she had been the one screaming. She put her arms down by her side and opened her eyes.
“That’s when I saw they were completely black, no iris, no white, nothing.
“I jumped back and grabbed my daughter. When I looked again, the child was gone. It was so strange.”

This cardboard plane flew nearly 82 miles from Kankakee, Illinois, to Rochester, Indiana, in a little less than 2 hours and 7 minutes. When I first heard this story, I got excited because I wanted to know what type of fold they used. Remember in elementary school you’d try to tweak your plane so it could go farther, like fold up the corners of the wings and stuff? Turns out these engineers used the traditional paper airplane BUT they let it go from a helium weather balloon at an altitude of 96,563 feet, which is over 18 miles straight up, well into the stratosphere. Cheaters. I’m sure if you crumpled up a paper ball it would and let it go from that altitude it would go pretty far. Doesn’t have to be a plane. Anyway, if you wanna see video footage from this flight, because it DOES look pretty cool, check it out:

Tattoo guy on TheBus - w4m
We were riding on the #1 bus Kalihi Transit Center at around 4:50 ish. You sat in the front. You also had amazing eyes and the tattoo's made you look even more hot. I know it's a long shot but if you see this and reply you would have made my day an even better one.
If he was sitting in the front, how’d you have enough time to see his eyes? Please don’t tell me you stepped over the yellow line. You rebel, you. You said he looks hot, here’s how to test if he’s a gentleman. Dress up like an old lady next time you ride the bus with him and see if he gives up that front seat for you. In either case, tattoo guy on the bus, if you’re looking for a new #1 in your life, besides the bus, your true love is waiting for you on Craigslist… and the Kalihi Transit Center.

This is a classic story about a school bully. It’s Pizza Day at school but the school bully doesn’t have enough money. Is that gonna get in his way? No way, he’s gonna shake up some nerd for the money. That nerd is gonna pay. That’s what the line in the song is about. That school bully is gonna go far in life … well, he’ll probably end up being a cop but you know what I mean.
I’m not sure if you heard but that Florida woman, Jasmine Tridevil , who claimed to have a third boob surgically implanted in order to look less attractive to men? Well, that story is apparently a hoax. Her website is linked to a woman who was charged with fraud in the past. Her website domain is registered to Alisha Hessler, who runs a "massage parlor" in Florida called Golden Touch (sounds like something you’d find on Ward Ave) which boasts that it is a "provider of Internet hoaxes since 2014.”
Sorry to burst your bubble. If you love that three boob action, I’ve always said your best bet is just downloading Total Recall. Read the story [here].

So a new world record has been set. This time, it happened in Canada. Late last week, 542 people dressed as Batman gathered in Calgary in order to raise money for charity and break a world record in the process. The official record is called “Largest Gathering of People Dress As Batman.” Coincidentally, there was another record broken that day - for the largest gathering of moms waiting to pick up their 30-year old sons. Seriously, I’m not making this up. Well, the gathering of moms, maybe, but not the batMEN. Read the whole story [here].

salt lake target cashier - m4w - 26
We talked a little bit on friday evening, I was with my friend buying a couple of energy drinks, I was the taller one, I think your name might have been brianna, im not sure my friend just caught a glimpse of you name tag, but I really just wanted to see if you were seeing anyone, maybe we can hang out some time, maybe you won't even see this, but if you do send me an email and tell me what I bought the second time I came to your register, I know you remember because it pretty much left you speechless.
Why didn’t you get her name the second time you visited her register? Ohhhh, busted. Gotta pay attention to details, buddy. I admit, I’m a little curious what you bought that second time ‘round. Let’s see, you bought energy drinks the first time and so the second time it must’ve been Doritos, extreme cheddar, still my beating heart. Brianna, on your break today, hit up Craigslist because love is waiting for ya.

Does your daughter play with Barbies? My oldest is just starting to. Might wanna keep an eye out for the new Life in the Dreamhouse Talking Barbie. She has 15 pre-set phrases, one of which is “Off the Hook,” but it sounds more like WTF. I can hear both phrases when I play it back, depending on what I wanna hear. Could be either one. Just to be safe, I’d say still sell it but just rename it to Lindsey Lohan Barbie or something. Read the whole story [here].

This is a full-on black burger… black cheese on a burger, served on a black bun. How do they get them black? Bamboo charcoal & squid ink. Mmmmmm, delicious! I’ll try anything once but I already know what the problem is with having a black burger. You can’t complain about a black burger. “Oh you don’t like your black burger? What’s wrong with it?

Your family's coat of arms hangs above the door - w4m (West Side )
Long shot, I'm sure. I met you a while back when I came to your house with someone I was seeing along with his friend (who is your mutual friend). You took pictures of furniture for him. Anyway, you and I got to talking for a few solid minutes about the stars and a sanctuary on the island. I haven't made it to the sanctuary yet and since I'm single, I was wondering if you'd join me? I have no idea how to get ahold of you so someone suggested this site. Please put the country of your family's coat of arms in subject.
You've popped into my mind a few times and it would be wonderful to simply have some tea with you :)
Well, you definitely used the right website, Craigslist is the way to go. BUT, I think you’re posting in the wrong category. If he doesn’t reply soon, do a post in the services section and say you’re looking for a guy to photograph your furniture. Say that you’re racist and you only work with European photographers and so they have to prove their lineage with their family coat of arms. That’s a guarantee reply right there and this priceless advice of course given to you for free at no charge because it’s the “alternative missed connection.”
Fans who turn in their Rice jerseys will get a free pie from Hersh's Pizza, which came up with the promotion after video of the former Ravens running back knocking out then-fiancée Janay Palmer was released Monday.

You hear all types of myths from friends when it comes to trying to cheat your way out of a DUI, right? Some people say smoke a ton of cigarettes, other say suck on a handful of pennies. Don’t try any of those because none of them work. And here’s another one to add to the list - drinking perfume. A man in Australia, at five times over the legal alcohol limit, drank an entire bottle of perfume after being pulled over. Cops smelled the perfume as well as the alcohol and so he was taken to the hospital and then to jail. Think about that - he could’ve gone to jail just smelling like beer but now he he’s going to jail smelling like Elizabeth Taylor’s "White Diamonds" - that’s not a good place to be.

If you go to a lot of farmers markets, here’s something you might be looking for. A farmer in Japan found two conjoined watermelons in a recent harvest. What does that mean? When you get two watermelons that are attached to each other, you get a watermelon that looks like a butt - a really round butt.

Guy in van recording me on my bike... - w4m (pali hwy)
Hey so I was on my motorcycle yesterday riding up the pali and this guy had his camera out and was either recording or taking pics of me and another rider in front...any chance you see this can i see what you got? I know I threw a dueces when you threw a shaka...leme know what color my bike was.
I mean, it’s cool that you didn’t get creeped out by a stranger randomly recording you with a camera but… yeah you should be creeped out, that’s a little weird. But then again, I don’t ride a motorcycle and maybe that’s a thing. People take random photos and video of each other. And maybe I’m just not hip to the lingo, but the term duece… that’s poop, right? So maybe she got creeped out after all and threw poop at him. What’s that? Oh the peace sign? Is that what it is? Oh okay, definitely not as exciting. Okay, this is taking too long, sounds like I’m standing in the way of love. Guy with the camera… hit pause ofr a second and find your new lady on Craigslist.

An awesome party prank of theirs… “the Black Parade.” I won’t get too graphic here but it’s their version of leaving a turd in the punch bowl. An awesome prank like that, leaving you a fat dump would definitely lead you into the summer.
