    Blue Scholars at Next Door this 1st friday 


    Big Ups to @honozooloo, @superCW, and @sonecessary for all the info.

    So, the Shwayze show scheduled for New Year’s Eve at Pipeline Cafe has been cancelled.

    BUT! their special guests are in town to rock the 1st Friday spot the weekend following.

    Blue Scholars.  Next Door. First Friday. January 2nd. 21+.  Almost doesn’t even need it’s own copy, does it?

    Almost a full six months since they infamously closed down Next Door, Geologic and Sabzi are BACK in Hawaii, bring that Pacific Northwest hip-hop that drove people bananas last time.

    It’s $10 to get in, but it’ll be the best $10 you’ve spent on a show in a long time.  And, it’ll be the first show you’ll go to in the new year, so make it count.

    NEW! Kicks/HI “Murdered Out Script” New Era 



    And the first release of 2009 goes to: Kicks Hawaii.

    And what a release too, the Murdered Out KH Script piece is on that Beyonce Upgrade U level.  Not Sasha Fierce, no… Upgrade U.  I think that’s the pinnacle of Beyonce right now.  Unless there’s another banger like that on Sasha Fierce… it’s gonna take a lot to knock Upgrade U Beyonce down the top rung of the ladder.

    Much like this New Era. All black everything… white New Era logo… classic Kicks/HI orange logo.  ALWAYS a good look.

    Go get yours, because I’m getting mine this Saturday at both Ward and Makaloa locations.

    For more, Kicks/HI.

    The Future is Grim art show 

    Late word about First Friday.

    So, The Grimm Image/Los Feo faces crew will be rolling through the halls of Ong King this First Friday with a display of power and imagery that is beyond what you can imagine.

    Artists Nabahe, MeatHead, and Fhidel will be putting up some installation canvases, as well as just painting on the walls.  This will be an in-depth expression of their artistic abilities.  Which, in this allegedly stale Hawaii scene, is what we need to start the New Year off with.

    So, swing by Ong King this Friday night between 5-9PM and support some new style for the new year.

    NEW! Fitted Hawaii “Exploited” Tee 


    The Fitted crew has just one more trick up their sleeves for 2008.  And this one is kinda special.

    This release features a redesign of the “Exploited” tee they dropped earlier this year, based off the classic Exploited album cover for “Let’s Start A War.”

    So, I guess they’re re-upping this one to appease the masses clamoring for one more shot at one of Fitted’s dope 2008 drops.

    Anyway, this one is dropping in a limited size run, so if you want one of these, make sure you go get it.

    This shirt is available now at Fitted Hawaii.

    NEW! in4mation License Plate Holders 

    Still playing catch-up from Friday.

    in4mation just re-upped on license plate holders.  Yeah, you too can speed away from the cops in style with these plate holders.

    But , you probably only need one, because somehow, no one sticks a front license plate on their car anymore, relegating it to dashboard duty.  Is that even legal?

    Anyway, all colors are available at both in4mation Ward Center & Aloha Army Waikiki.

    NEW! Fitted Hawaii Hoodies 


    So, how was your blackout Friday?

    Well, we’re still trying to get things back up and running from the food coma that was Christmas at atypicalLIVING headquarters.  Then of course, the blackout hit.  Always unfazed, we trekked on with our powered up Macbook and Hele Wireless card to keep up to date on things.

    Anyway, while putting the pieces back together (and figuring out where to spend that Christmas cash) we found out that the Fitted Hawaii crew has re-upped the original and dropped a brand new color of the highly sought after Fitted hoodie.

    Go get yours quick, because supplies are HELLA limited.

    Available now at Fitted Hawaii.

    Merry Christmas from atypicalLIVING 


    We hope you are enjoying your Christmas holiday with Family and Friends, as we here at atypicalLIVING are enjoying it with ours as well.

    In fact, currently, I’m updating the site between timeouts during the Lakers/Celtics game.

    So, with that in mind, we hope you are having a blessed day and enjoying all that you’ve received today.

    But, remember, there are those that are less fortunate that cannot have as awesome a holiday as yourself.  So, if you feel inclined, please donate some money to one of the following charities:

    Salvation Army, Hawaii Food Bank, Catholic Charities Hawaii.

    Make the holidays brighter for someone else today.

    Merry Christmas everybody.
