    atypicalLIVING Covers: Split Obsession Grand Re-Opening 

    Been a while since I did some event coverage, so here’s some flicks from the Grand Re-opening of Split Obsession at Ala Moana.  The shop is (finally) in a location that speaks to the type of clientele that they’re trying to reach with their art, clothing, and toys.  The event also featured Philippe Anthony on the live painting, Kavet The Catalyst and JABAone on the 1’s and 2’s, a Candy Bar (with help yourself peanut M&Ms…) and good vibes all around.  it was great to see the meshing of so many different cultures in one spot. It was quite refreshing.

    Big ups to Bruce and Erica for re-opening the shop and for continued success.  Happy to have been down since day one.

    NEW! lightsleepers x LOFA benefit shirt 

    Chinese New Year was this past Sunday, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t still enjoy it somehow.

    Help LOFA get to Comic Con in San Diego by picking up this new, limited-edition lightsleepers shirt. Featuring a decidedly Hong Kong kung-fu flick feel to the script and the traditional red/black/gold colorway of the Chinese New Year celebration.  This one is something you’re gonna rock the whole year.

    Plus, you get the fun feeling of sending LOFA to Comic-Con, where he can pick up even more toys, get his legit Mexican food on, and take pics with stormtroopers and Olivia Munn.

    You can find out more info about this on the lightsleepers site, LOFA or KTC’s blog. You can also find this shirt at http://www.eleshawaii.com or at in4mation. We thank you for your support.

    The annual lightsleepers Love Song Mixtape post 

    I know I posted some of these songs last Sunday on my personal blog, but I’m gonna do my own little mix again, as part of the lightsleepers tradition of rocking a Love Song mixtape for February 14th.

    So, here goes my list. You can also check out the other lists being brewed up by LOFA, KTC, and Newkon.

    [clearspring_widget title=”Grooveshark Widget: Chameleon” wid=”48f3ef6c29317865″ pid=”4b739a128e582db2″ width=”300″ height=”400″ domain=”widgets.clearspring.com”]

    Your Touch – The Black Keys: Of Course, I’d have to start it off with something rocking. This song, if you watched Zombieland, comes up at the romantic peak of the movie.

    Nothin’ On You – B.o.B feat. Bruno Mars: Ummm… I just like this song haha. Those beautiful girls… they got nothin’ on you, girl.

    I Wanna Be – Avant: Now, we getting serious. I think this song speaks to the lover in all of us. Especially those that have to prove a point to make sure that they won’t hurt the other like the previous person.

    A Song For You – Donny Hathaway: See the above description and apply it to this song too. This songs hits al the right emotional points and should demonstrate the way how a love song should be sung. I love you so much, that’s why I’m singing this song for you, girl.

    Pretty Wings – Maxwell: This song speaks to me like I have to let you go to make your life better. No better love than one who lays his best interests in the better interest of another. I love you a lot, but I know there’s someone that can love you better, so I want you to be free and find yourself, hopefully finding that person in the process.

    Or it can just be a dope song. Whatever.

    Slow Dance – John Legend: This song reminds me of just chillin’ on the couch with your beloved and just reminiscing about all the dope times, making more memories along the way. Life is about making those moments you remember, not really dwelling on the petty stuff.

    Knocks Me Off My Feet – Stevie Wonder: “There’s something about your love, that makes me weak… and knocks me off my feet.” SING IT STEVIE!

    Dance with Me – Intrigue: Everyone has that song that reminds them of 9th grade prom/formal/dance/whatever. This is that song for me. When listening to this song, imagine trying to dance with one of your close female friends, all while trying to stare at her forehead.

    (They Long To Be) Close To You – The Carpenters: It’s Homer and Marge Simpson’s wedding song. How can you not think this is romantic?

    A Little Bit – Drake and Lykke Li: For some reason, when I think of a particular person, this song plays in my head.

    Pretty Brown Eyes – Mint Condition: When this song comes on, you know it’s time to get the slow dancing started.

    You Make My Dreams Come True – Hall and Oates: Did you watch 500 Days of Summer? I feel the same way walking out of my house when I hear this song. I think any woman that can have that affect on me is definitely wifey material. Serious.

    And that’s my mix this year. Hope you enjoy it with someone you love.

    Atmosphere this Saturday night 


    Slug and Ant bring their Minnesota charm and Twin Cities appeal to Pipeline Cafe this Saturday night in the biggest hip-hop show this side of Thanksgiving.  The Rhymesayers will be in the mix, along with Hawaii’s own Creed Chameleon (with the Spacifics) and chief lightsleepers Kavet The Catalyst.

    This is a rare event, as Hawaii has really struggled as of late with trying to get major urban acts out here, but somehow the BAMP guys keep doing it, exceeding all expectations.

    To catch a piece of this fire, check out Atmosphere at Pipeline Cafe this Saturday night.  Doors open at 9PM, so this one isn’t for the little kids.  For more info, check out BAMP Project.
