Luke 2:9-12
And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. (10) And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy that will be for all the people. (11) For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. (12) And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

Jesus, reason for the season.

Thanks for viewing my random rants and ramblings. Wishing you a Merry Christmas this holiday season. With love, Lofa.

FYI tonight…

Now I don’t know why but I love tribal shows. But not the ones where the haole guys try become one of them. They dumb and was getting all high off their crazy tribal drugs. Peer pressure is a mofo! A while back the Travel Channel went to Pentacost Island and followed the Bunlap people as they did their crazy land diving off towers with yam vines or whatevers. That was my favorite show. I watched it every time they showed. Then they started hyping up “Meet The Natives: USA” and I was like “Yo they gonna bring them to the USA and freak them out!” Ends up these guys from Tanna, near Fiji in Vanuatu. They Melanesian like the Bunlaps. Still I love this show MORE! They hella funny. Heart warming as they search for Tom Navy and end up having to settle for meeting Colin Powell instead. Mean. Well the season is pretty much over and I watch all the reruns. Wondering if they gonna take them to other places? And wondering if laplap tastes good like haupia or kulolo…….

They know people got reasons to not come on Christmas cus you sleeping in or you opening gifts. Mostly they want you to enjoy your friends and family. That’s the most important people you got. Well this Sunday is the beginning of Christmas services. Today is a big day for me and tomorrow i got a wedding to go to so today is the only time for do this. I would love to invite you to service this Sunday. If you go your own church or what not that’s cool, go church! If you don’t go church and you want to check out a service then stop by. If you don’t wanna go church at all I understand that too! This invite is for one and all. If you accept it cool, if not, then cool beans too! I’ll be handing out programs at the 7:30 and 9:00AM services. Stop by and say hi. Happy Birthday Jesus!

If you want to buy a deck bring some money (Decks starting at $100 and up. Cash only) If you don’t at least bring a dollar and help Kenny pay for his medical bills and fight leukemia. Thanks to everyone who sponsered my fundraising. Kenny getting all that first thing friday afternoon. But bring a dollar for Kenny! Every little helps. He got $30,000 in bills.

So the homies at Kicks/HI had a beach clean up at Kaimana Beach a while back. Now I always want to help others and our ‘aina as well. I missed the Hui beach clean up (I miss it every year cus I no like go North Shore and fight traffic in the winter) and when the crew at Kicks said they doing Kaimana I had to help. First it was near my hood. Kapahulu. Go sneak in some breakfast from Rainbows. Win. Second was cleaning near my beach. WALLS. Never considered myself a wall rat but they was all my boys growing up. Third Kicks was giving away 50 snap back hats that were HELLA dope. Crap if they was a five pannel i woulda rocked it. Gave mine to KTC so he can wear um with the D. Lee OH! Lightsleepers shirt coming soon.

So me and Vezzen headed to the beach on an early Saturday morn. This is a pic of some of the trash that was collected. I thought wasn’t gonna be lots to pick up cus they got city n county crews to clean up the park but the mass of tourist keeps the trash flowing and the workers only take care of the big stuff visible when you drive by. The bench that served as Kicks/HI Waikiki homebase had thousands of cigarette butts and beer bottle caps within a three foot radius of the table. Coulda just stayed there and filled half a bag.

Part of the Kicks/HI crew

Fellow do gooders

The Lightsleepers posse helping Mother Nature. Me and Joe had fun cleaning up stuff. Was trying to find the most randomest piece of trash to pick up. I found it. I picked it up. Story is too gross to post. So gross some tourist that seen it was yelling “That’s so gross!” She lucky I never leave it for her to step on. Then make things weird KITV4 was doing a story bout the homeless camping at Waikiki and next thing I know they shooting us picking up trash. Wonder if they thought we was homeless. I’m greatful I’m not but I feel bad for the people that really are.

Big ups to the Kicks/HI crew. They gonna do another one soon. Lightsleepers ohana gonna be there to lend a helping hand.
