i got some very affordable ceramics yesterday at the east hawaii cultural center (EHCC - an art museum that also has a ceramics studio, youth programs, a theater, and other stuff).
they were having an xmas sale featuring the works of artists who work in their ceramics studio and some of the youth in their youth programs.
so i took the opportunity to get some ceramic art to send to people for xmas. here in hawai'i, we have to get our gifts together extra early because the last day to ship something to the mainland is dec. 16th (if you want it to arrive by xmas).

Gov. Josh Green is proposing using taxpayer and private funds to build new housing and to pay home owners well above market value if they rent long term. Short-term rentals would simply be banned.
I hear that when it snows on Mauna Kea a Menahune gets its wings. I have very bad hearing apparently. #Hawaii
Per US Tsunami Warning Center, there is *NO* tsunami threat to Hawaii..

THERE IS NO TSUNAMI THREAT TO HAWAII. REPEAT. BASED ON ALL
AVAILABLE DATA... THERE IS NO TSUNAMI THREAT TO HAWAII."

‘Kona’ storm dumps exceptional rains, mountain snows on Hawaii
Extreme rainfall plagued #Hawaii’s Big Island and Maui. Rainfall totaled 15 inches or more on three Hawaiian islands.
The Big Island summits received plowable snowfall. Freezing temperatures accompanied 5 inches of heavy, wet #snow atop Mauna Kea, which reaches 13,803 feet in elevation.
With Climate Change the disasters feed into each other 😞
Tropical Palm Lily (cabbage palm, good luck plant, ti plant). Photographed growing wild in Hawaii. The flowers look like exploding fireworks to me.

View from the lanai. Background: Sun. Foreground: Rain. We get plenty of sun showers out here.
It's Kona low season in #Hawaii, which is when the prevailing trade winds slack off and moisture seeps up from the south or southwest. Basically: Wet and coolish.
Just explained to someone today that Hawaii does have seasons, two of them...wet and dry.
Today in Labor History November 28, 1843: The Kingdom of Hawaii was officially recognized by the United Kingdom and France as an independent nation. Consequently, the date is now known as Ka Lā Hui (Hawaiian Independence Day). The nation was formed in 1795, when the warrior chief Kamehameha the Great, of the independent island of Hawaiʻi, conquered and unified the independent islands of Oʻahu, Maui, Molokaʻi and Lānaʻi. The U.S. became its chief trading partner and “protector” to prevent other foreign powers from seizing control. In 1891, the Committee of Safety, led primarily by foreign nationals from the U.S., U.K. and Germany, and some dissident locals, overthrew Queen Liliʻuokalani. And in 1898, the U.S. annexed Hawaiʻi, making it a territory of the U.S. In 1993 Congress passed the Apology Resolution, acknowledging that the overthrow of the Kingdom of Hawaii was by agents and citizens of the U.S. and that the Native Hawaiian people never relinquished their claims to sovereignty.

If you're not familiar with kim chi, it's pickled cabbage with a variety of awesome spices. Yeah, so something like sauerkraut with an upgrade. It's normally made with fish sauce, but vegan versions are available. #tasty
Aircraft floating in Kaneohe Bay is a sub hunter, per NPR. I guess they decided to do some in-person diving this time. #plane #accident #hawaii #submarines https://www.npr.org/2023/11/20/1214320644/navy-plane-hawaii-bay-overshoots-runway?utm_medium=JSONFeed&utm_campaign=news&utm_source=press.coop

Whole breadfruit is often tossed into hot embers or an underground oven (imu) and cooked whole in this way. More modern preparations chop into quarters, core, peel, then steam. I generally cook them whole, whether roasted, baked or steamed, and peel and cut after. Ulu can be precooked and prepped, then used all sorts of ways later, in a variety of dishes. Keeps well, freezes well, can be turned into flour. #slowfood #indigenousfoods #hawaii #cooking

Time for a new #introduction
I play bass and electronic instruments, do some experimental video work, and live on O‘ahu, Hawai‘i.
Some things I've done that I love going on and on about: spent time in Bulgaria studying the concept of authenticity in relation to folk music, co-founded Community of Sound in Burlington Vermont, been an internationally ranked biathlon competitor (we won't say what that rank was though hahah).
My music often involves free improvisation, collaborations, and sometimes contemporary art music compositions.
My site is hand coded, has an RSS feed, and loads really fast.
Profile links to 10 links for latest projects/news etc, my website, my newsletter (subscribe if you like reading about sound, community, and culture), and direct artist support--which makes a tremendous difference in continuing to make creative work, thank you.

City & County of Honolulu v. Sunoco LP
Justia Opinion Summary
The Supreme Court affirmed the orders of the circuit court denying Defendants' motions to dismiss for lack of jurisdiction and for failure to state a claim in this action brought by the City and County of Honolulu and the Honolulu Board of Water Supply (collectively, Plaintiffs) against a number of oil and gas producers (collectively, Defendants), holding that there was no error.
Plaintiffs sued Defendants alleging public nuisance, private nuisance, strict liability failure to warn, negligent failure to warn, and trespass. Specifically, Plaintiffs alleged that Defendants engaged in a deceptive promotion campaign and misled the public about the dangers and environmental impact of using their fossil fuel products. Defendants filed a motion to dismiss, arguing, among other things, that Plaintiffs' claims were preempted by the Clean Air Act (CAA). The Supreme Court denied the motions, holding (1) Defendants were subject to specific jurisdiction in Hawai'i; (2) the CAA displaced federal common law governing interstate pollution damages suit, and following displacement, federal common law did and does not preempt state law; and (3) the CAA did not preempt Plaintiffs' claims. https://law.justia.com/cases/hawaii/supreme-court/2023/scap-22-0000429.html #climate #litigation #Hawaii #greenwashing #marketing #misinformation
