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.

Now for that My Chemical Romance test of lyrical knowledge this morning.
I know My Chemical Romance looks like a bunch of pasty emo dudes but this song is actually telling you they know how to kick off the summer with a raging party. 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.
And what would you do to get that sale? Well check out what this guy did. Read the whole story [here].
It’s Tuesday, and of course I’ll be giving you today’s qualifying times to score that trip to San Fran to rock out to Kings of Leon-listen at 7:10 so you can be sure you’re ready today. Then at 7:40, I’m giving away a pair of tickets to Wet ‘N’ Wild Hawaii - listen, tweet/FB with the right hashtag and win!
And I’m sure all of us have that one friend who collects something weird - POGS from the 90’s, old Star Wars toys. Right? Well, don’t think you have a friend who collects what this guy does. Read the whole story [here].

I don't really know what to say or if you'll ever see this but you were absolutely gorgeous.
You were trying to fix your back windshield and I hope you were able to.
If you see this please let me know what color your picture frame was.
Hopefully I hear from you.
Broken back windshield? I wonder what she was doing in the backseat. I don’t know where the picture frame came from. But hey, she’s possibly an art lover, and she’s located in town so not much of a commute there. Girl in blue volkswagon, once you fix that back windshield, hit up your new man on Craigslist. Just stay out of the backseat for a while. Let the glue on that back windshield cure.

Vice Bartender Saturday Night - w4m (Vice Night Club)
I've never written one of these before and even as I'm typing this, I'm hoping I don't sound like some crazy girl, but I figured why not? I'll probably never see you again, but I figured I'd take a chance. You were my bartender at Vice this past Saturday and I think your name is Nick. You seemed like a cool & interesting guy and I'd like to maybe hangout sometime. My friend & I were the two blonde girls from Kailua (my comment: of course you are) who ordered a few shots from you (and a few glasses of water). Tell me what we got shots of so I know it's actually you responding :)
First off, good job for your first missed connection. Your grammar is … liveable. Classic bartender name, Nick. You know, one day all those cool slick names are gonna be extinct. In 20 yrs, say hello to your new bartender Skyler or Rayden or those made up names. Anyway, ordering shots with water, that shows a little responsibility so, I approve. Nick the slick bartender, reply to your new lady on Craigslist. She’s only half drunk … cuz of that water. The only catch is you have to drive out to Kailua.
And yes, it’s not Tuesday where we talk about new music, but thought I’d give you something that may or may not inspire you to get out in the yard. 'true that' features a blend of lo-fi folk, piano instrumentals and noisy experimentation ... I’d say it is good pulling weeds music. Fire up the iPod with some Michael Cera, wear those short corduroy shorts, take a low squat and start pulling. Talking about weeds, not your hamstring. Read the write-up [here].
And what would “The Walk of Shame” be like without a few new features? Today is Turdsday, and here is your Turdsay story of the morning. Bird poop, it’s what’s missing from your facial - created by none other than Koreans - yes, bird poop, on your face, not from walking under a tree at Thomas Square, but purposely slathering the oh-so-gooey stuff on your face to help with your skin. Read the whole story [here].
On this post-Iselle & Julio Monday, hope your drive in is great, but to make it even better, I’ve got a pair of tickets to the Hana Hou picture of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom on Wednesday, August 20th at 7 p.m. at Ward Theatres, to give away in my hashstash at 7:40 this morning. Make sure you listen and win! I’ve got the top box office hits this weekend … make sure you listen to see who reigned in movie land.
Now for Saturday’s results - no I’m not talking about last week’s topic of the priciest case of water pre-Iselle and Julio, but the results of the 2014 Primary Election.
And since there’s Shark Week this week, we figured we would do our own version...Snarf Week it is. What is a snarf? Snarf is an elder Snarf, properly known by his name Osbert, which he hates. Snarf served as a nursemaid and protector for Lion-O when he was a boy.
Hope everyone is staying safe and dry with the weather, I’ve got a $25 gift card to Starbucks to help keep you warm after these storms pass. I’ll be giving that away at 7:40 this morning.
Now for updates to Iselle and Julio.
Hurricane Iselle was downgraded to a strong Tropical Storm late last night as the core of the system prepared to pass over Hawaii Island. Tropical storm conditions began to spread to the islands of Maui County and now Oahu The National Weather Service says that swells generated by Iselle will continue to build tonight, possibly becoming damaging along some coastlines. Weather conditions caused numerous road closures as well as power outages on the Big Island and Maui. At 5 a.m., Iselle was about 70 miles west-southwest of Hilo. It had maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour with higher gusts.
Julio has entered the Central Pacific as the fourth major hurricane of the Eastern Pacific hurricane season.
At 5 a.m., Julio had maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour with higher gusts. It was located 870 miles east of Hilo and was moving toward the west-northwest near 16 miles per hour. Forecasters expect gradual weakening through Sunday morning.
Hurricane force winds extend outward up to 40 miles from the center and tropical storm force winds extend outward up to 125 miles.
While it is far too early to tell for sure, computer forecast models hint at moisture from this system reaching the islands. The current forecast track takes Julio north of the state as a Hurricane late Saturday into Sunday.
It’s Thursday I’ll help one lucky Oahu resident find love in KPOI’s Missed Connection this morning - but first, updates on Iselle and Julio:
At 5 a.m. this morning, Iselle was located about 305 miles east-southeast of Hilo and was moving west-northwest at 185 miles per hour.
It had maximum sustained winds of 980 miles per hour, with higher gusts, Iselle is a Category 1 hurricane.
On the forecast track, the center of Iselle is expected to pass very near or over the Big Island tonight, and pass just south of the smaller islands tomorrow. Some weakening is forecast during the next 48 hours, but Iselle is now expected to be a hurricane as it passes near or over the Big Island.
Julio has now strengthened into a Category 2 hurricane as the storm continues to move towards the Hawaiian islands.
At 5 a.m. this morning, Julio had maximum sustained winds of 105 miles per hour with higher gusts. It was located 1,2350 miles east of Hilo and was moving west-northwest at 17 miles per hour. Forecasters say that some additional strengthening is possible today and into the weekend.
The current forecast track takes Julio north of the Big Island as a Tropical Storm late Saturday into Sunday.

Blonde milf in Aqua luana Waikiki, elevator - m4w - 38 (Waikiki )
I saw u there yesterday, u were wearing a ring, had a black swim suit and had a cup with rum and coke I guess . you were on your way down to the pool I was with my family and tried not to look at you. U had a couple of tattoos. If u see this hmu, would love to see more of u.
This is all kinds of wrong. She had a ring? You had your family with you? You shouldn’t be using craigslist, you should be using Ashley Madison or any of those other sites that help married people cheat. But then again, those sites cost money and looks like your money is tied up in funding your staycation and she needs money for rum. Ms. Milf, forbidden passion awaits, head over to Craigslist.

That’s right, jumping at a bear… not only is that a really dumb thing to do, but it’s really rude to the bear. Especially if it’s for no good reason. You’re jump at a bear and try to wrestle him just because it’s Saturday? How rude.
And an update on Iselle and Julio - The Central Pacific Hurricane Center has issued a Tropical Storm Watch for Maui as Hurricane Iselle continues on its path towards the Hawaiian islands. Forecasters issued a Tropical Storm Watch for the Big Island of Hawaii yesterday. At 11 p.m. last night, Iselle was located about 830 miles east of Hilo and was moving west-northwest at 13 miles per hour. It had maximum sustained winds of 100 miles per hour, making it a Category 2 hurricane. The latest forecast track from the Central Pacific Center brings Iselle to the Big Island as a tropical storm tomorrow evening. The outer winds of the storm may be felt in the Puna District as early as noon tomorrow The center of the storm is forecast to come ashore south of Hilo about 8 p.m. tomorrow. However, it is still too soon to say with complete certainty which islands will be likely to experience the worst weather. Even with a forecast track, there is a 100-mile margin of error three days out, so everyone in Hawaii should be prepared for the possibility of a direct impact from Iselle.

Driving on H2 - w4m
I was driving home on h2 when I passed you. You were driving a black Chevy. Thought you were good looking. You seemed to notice me. You then went to pass me and I starting cheesing real hard. We played this game back and forth until you got off an exit.
Tell me which exit you got off of and what kind of car I was driving.
First off, I have to find out when you were driving. Sounds like there was no traffic, which is a miracle these days, right? If he doesn’t find this ad, maybe pretend to be the hot stranded motorist on the side of the H2 and catch his attention next time he drives by. I think I saw a film that started that way. Might’ve starred Ron Jeremy. In either case, black Chevy driver, there’s a nice young lady hoping to ride shotgun with you in the near future. Find her on Craigslist.

This one’s pretty obvious. If you were in an arms race, with guns and nukes and everything, you would be pretty insecure if all you did was weave lassos, right? As far as being a leaning man. Well, one leg is shorter than the other, and so that severely limits the types of jobs he can do. Fortunately weaving lassos is not on that list. I think even if he had no legs, he’d still be able to weave lassos.

Kaiulani blonde - walking home? - m4w (waikiki)
You: a beautiful blond with a pony tail walking. You had such a friendly look to you!
Me: a handsome guy walking in the opposite direction.
I assume you were walking home and I gave you a little smile, we locked eyes for a second and kept going. We must have looked back at each other 4 or 5 more times as we got further apart.
Why didn't either of us stop and talk? We both missed out tonight and I for one regret not trying to engage you.
This is a long shot but if you read this send me a message. Tell me what you were wearing so I know it was you?
Okay, there’s gotta be a better verification system on these Craigslist posts than “tell me what you were wearing.” Do you remember what you wore everyday this past week? If someone were to come up behind me, blindfold me and make me tell them what I’m wearing right now … I’d probably get that wrong. Maybe I’m just dumb that way, but all I’m saying is that I’d fail at this missed connection thing because i wouldn’t be able to tell anyone what I was wearing … ever. Also you’re wondering why you guys didn’t stop and talk to each other? Because it was night time in Waikiki-when things sometimes get shady. I don’t blame either of you to keep on walking. In fact, pick up the pace and jog a little. I’m not trying to be mean here … well actually yeah, just a little bit. But I never, NEVER want to stand in the way of love. So Happy Blonde, jump onto Craigslist because your man is ready to engage with you.
And you think that the last place you’d run to if you are being chased by police, is to the cops themselves … well, it happens, people. It did this week - read the whole story [here].
