Comment on HiUP #45 – Lost ‘Elepani by Jane Kathleen Alvarez

Wed, 18 Jul 2012 17:22:37 +0000

Aloha and Howdy from San ANtonio TX . I'm a belated "Lost" fan (appx 7yrs later :-) i'm watching the complete series (2 episodes a night) on now (currently on Season 3 ep 9-11) Since becoming a rabid fan, i started seeking discussion groups to listen to while at work. I searched for podcasts that coincide with episodes i happen to be on (thus how i found yours ;-) Ironically, I used to live and work in Oahu from 2004 -2006 but at the time was not interested in Lost, alas, 7yrs later just now getting into the series, how bittersweet knowing how close in proximity to me the filmings were! Its surreal, because although its no longer on air, the Lost experience is present time for me, and what a treat it was to not only listen to this interview, but to mentally time travel back to this particular day of your podcast you made back in Sept 2006 - I was there during that major bridge collapse you mentioned, and in fact was stuck in Nimitz Hwy traffic till 2am! I appreciate all your efforts making this not just for the fans that you had previously but for the future fans like me searching for like minded "others" - Mahalo ya'll from San Antonio TX Jane Kathleen aka Leydeejay

Of this one podcast, yes. But "The Transmission" continued for another three years, and my wife and I just started our newest show, "Popspotting."

I second Rachel's post. I know you've got other projects and ways to express yourself these days... and with the Transmission broadcasting again I'm happy as a clam... but I do miss HawaiiUP. Oh, and my son will be born in a matter of weeks. I might just need a new HawaiiUP t-shirt. We'll just have to wait and see. ;-)

Please release another podcast! It's been almost a year since I've heard Hawaiiup, that is so hard to believe. I miss hearing the awesome music you play and your movie reviews and Hawaii news!

Hey Ryan, I am a local boy living in Maine! I always listen whenever you podcast, but I am saddened that you are (mostly) nowhere to be found these days. Is all ok? I would love to see you at least monthly, but I really miss the weekly shows. Ah, for the good old days of '05! I will be here, as we all will, when you come back. Just don't take too long! Mahalo!!

Hi Jen and Ryan, I'm currently listening to your podcast. I MISS HEARING YOUR PODCASTS!!! I think they are always great. My girlfriend and I were just in HI for 2 weeks visiting with her daughter son in law and grand children. I wish we could have met up but finding time was very hard. Anywho I am glad you did a podcast as I miss them. I watch you at work on alot. Aloha, Bill in Moorestown, NJ ... :-)

Ryan and Jen, Welcome back. Loved the podcast. I'm going to have to check out more of Doolin Rakes. I love Irish music. I agree Donnie Darko was interesting and mind blowing but a little too dark for me, but worth seeing once. Keep up the good work and by the way my name is pronounced like Jeff but it is the original British spelling (short for Geoffrey like Geoffrey Chaucer or Geoffrey Beene) Mahalo, Geoff

Whoa. I'm so glad Salt Lake Blvd. was expanded around the location of the old Costco because I remember the clusterfuck of traffic on the weekends when it was open. The residents around that neighborhood were pretty much locked in. I've got a Target down the street from my apartment. It's safe to say I'm furnished mostly by Target. If Hawai`i ever gets an IKEA, I might consider moving back.

I'm commenting on this before I've heard the whole cast, but: Another reason stats like Education Week's can be deceptive is that some states count their "graduates" differently from others. I don't know how Education Week collected its data, but in some states, if a student drops out and says he or she "intends to earn a G.E.D.," the states don't count that as a dropout, even without following up to see if the G.E.D. was ever earned.

Hey Ryan, it's so nice that you're back from your break from podcasting. Can I just give a specific thanks for the time-codes you do in your show-notes? I always skip right to the Pith of Pop and am glad to be able to read details of your subject matter first. Still, I am fascinated by your in-depth news of political and other goings-on in Hawaii. Your show rocks!

It's good to know youngsters like yourselves are listening to older music. I remember when "Mama", "Shambala," and "Summer in the City" were brand new songs during various stages of my life. All great tracks. "Shambala" was Three Dog Night's biggest hit of 1973 and one of their last top 10's of their career. "Summer in the City" was a huge #1 hit during the summer of 1966 for the Lovin' Spoonful. Both were Top 40 AM favorites of their day.

Hi Ryan, Jen and Katie! The Ozawa podcasting network introduces their latest member. Very nice. That was a great father/daughter glimpse into the HawaiiUp family. Keep up the great work and I always look forward to your podcast. I'll try to call in to win the T-shirt!

Yay I love when HawaiiUp comes up with a new show on iTunes. I loved Children of Men. It didn't get the recognition it deserved. I am officially going to watch Firefly now. I bought it a few weeks ago because it was on sale. After hearing you guys talk about it, I am going to open it and watch. Can't wait for the next one Maggie in Virginia PS. 70 can be cold. But I am jealous it was 17 this morning.

By the way, my wife received the 50th Podcast Hawai'iUp t-shirt and she wears it proudly! Let us know if we can help get the show back on the air. Thanks---Al

Hey Jen and Ryan! I was saving this show to listen to this week while I cleaned. I procrastinated cleaning and that is my reason for not responding to the show sooner. Thank you so much for the kind things you said about mommycast on your show. I am glad you had fun at my sister's place and yes, that was her on "Dog, The Bounty Hunter" the episode was called "playing possum". We watched it as a family and my 7 year old said to my sister "That guy got in SO much trouble for making ice??!! Man, we got a whole freezer full!!" And I glared at my sister as I was forced to teach my young son about the seriousness of drug usage. :) Thanks again for the great review. I look forward to hooking up with you celebrities next time we are out there. (Maybe we can schedule a dinner together- you guys, me and Jeff and the whole cast of Lost!) Oh, and you should swing by and take the survey. You can win a family movie night kit which is like a dinner tray with a movie and popcorn and treats and an embroidered MommyCast blanket. I totally want one myself. You guys are the best! Thanks for keeping me connected to my other home.

hi Ryan, & greetings from New York! Just wanted to take a second and say a big thanks for all the hard work, and congrats on your upcoming #50. I look to HawaiiUP when I need a break from the grindstone and a reminder of what I'm working for. Hearing what's going on in the islands takes me right back. Keep up the good work! Walt

The FIRST thing I thought of when I heard about the earthquake was "Man, I hope Ryan and Jen's family is OK!" The SECOND thing I thought of was "Man, I hope the earthquake doesn't mess up the Lost schedule!" Glad to hear you're OK.

Sun, 15 Oct 2006 01:14:43 +0000

If you like Rolling Stones songs with a country twang, try the following: "Dead Flowers" off 1971's Sticky Fingers; "Country HonK" off 1969's "Let It Bleed" and my favorite, "Far Away Eyes" off "Some Girls" from 1978. As great as the movie GREASE is, the accompanying soundtrack album is a must, a classic. Spawned 4 huge top 40 hits in 1978: "Grease" by Frankie Valli; "You're the One That I Want" by John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John; "Hopelessly Devoted to You" by Olivia Newton John and "Summer Nights" by John Travolta & Olivia Newton-John; The tracks by Sha Na Na are fun too - those are the songs heard at the dance; Frankie Avalon does a good job with "Beauty School Dropout"; Avalon was actually there in the 1950s when his single "Venus" hit the top of the charts in 1959.

I've been taking uke classes with Uncle Henry since you introduced him on your show last December. Thank you so much for introducing him. His strumming methods are incredible. I had to put the uke class on hold since school has started again and I miss it so much. The Lost interview was spectacular!!! I agree you're no Baba Wawa and thank goodness. I liked your style and you delved deep into what I, and I'm sure what the "others", wanted to know. When you posted the photos first on flickr I couldnt wait to hear the interview! I was rolling with laughter when you guys were talking about the Hawaiian word of the day and why anyone would want to know the word for elephant. A hui hou!

I would have loved to attend the antique roadshow to get some appraisals on old comic books given to me as a child. But wow for your friend and her antique aloha shirt!! Unreal. I would have cried on the spot. Just thinking of Will Ferrell makes me laugh. Loved that scene when his posse was trying to convince him that he wasn't really paralyzed. And of course the baby Jesus prayer. As always great news around the world and around the hale!!

Okay, I'm not even a fan of Lost (oooh, blasphemy!) but this was exciting to listen to just the same. How did you manage to get the hook up with two of the most sought after celebrities in the world? Oh wait. I nearly forgot who I was talking about. You're the man! (Even Amethyst dug this and she had to ask "Is Lost a TV show?") Keep rockin'!

Wonderful show as always! Great interviewing, but of course I enjoyed the rest of the episode just as much. Just want you to know that I still don't have pictures of our Katie in the gift you sent... as she still needs to grow into it a bit more. Also... I think you do yourself and Jen (mostly Jen) a disservice by referring to yourselves as dorks. I think you're more of a geek like moi. So before you go throwing the term around again, you better take this test too be certain.

hey Ryan, I wanted to say thanks for turnin' me on to Amanda Frazier (her music, her musc!) in a previous epoisode of this podcast. Patience pays off, and I finally got her permission to play a track on my podcast. I love the way your show gives me an inside view of one of the most diverse and international places in USA. But the Pithe of Pop discussions with your wife are my faves of all. cheers for the great show, Kevin

Aloha braddah! As for encoding, I also use 96kbps and for the same reasons. It still sounds good and keeps the show size down. Plus, I still want people to go out and actually purchase a CD themselves rather than rely on what's on my show. :) Mahalo for playing Uncle Henry's music and passing his info on in your show. In addition to performing at Bob's Okazuya he is also performing with a new band: Hawaii Sons of LA, Wednesday nights in Huntington Beach, CA. Here's the details: “Hawaii Sons of LA” Wednesday evenings from 5pm to 8:30 pm at The “Catalina Fish Kitchen” 19171 Magnolia St (just South of Garfield) Huntington Beach, Ca 92646 (714) 963-9921 The "Hawaii Sons of L.A." are a group of been-around-done-that Hawaiian musicians composed of Uncle Henry Kamae and Pat 'Palika' Enos on ukulele, Roger Waialae on guitar, Joe Aki on Bass, and Pete Kahele on steel guitar. Email Pat Enos for more information: No Reservations required and the food is ono and affordable Malama pono, Piko

Hi Ryan! Just wanted to say I love the show. The News section is always entertaining - and it makes me feel better to know that politicians are insane in every state! Also, the Pith Of Pop with Jen is great - it's nice to hear you two together since the Transmission is off the air (I'm a Transmission listener originally). So keep up the great work. :-) Also - loved your item on Jay and Jack's recent Vid cast. Nice job!

I love Before Sunset. It's one of the few movies that I own on vhs and dvd. Surprisingly, Before Sunrise did not disappoint as most sequels do. I loved the ending. After hearing your reviews, I kept singing Celine's song all day long. Let me sing you a waltz. ....Mahalo for a great podcast!

Thank Jen for recommending Anthony Bourdain: No Reservations. I really like it. I hear tomorrow's episode was filmed in Beirut, and they got caught up in that little war. Should be interesting.

Hi. Love the podcast as always and I like that I am one of the first commenters each week. This feeds my podcast addition. ;~) So Before Sunset and After Sunrise were on my Blockbuster Queue and after hearing you both talking about it, I have moved it up. Can't wait to get the next podcast. Maggie in Peoria

Yay for HawaiiUP!! Love the show. I love Jay and Jack and Filmspotting. You should try a Filmspotting marathon, I am doing the screwball comedies marathon right now. Its good. It can be hard to get the movies sometimes. I am going to try the other podcasts. Always need more podcasts to listen to

Ryan, I'm so thrilled to hear a new podcast from you. I lived on Oahu in the Coast Guard housing in Red Hill back in '83 and '84. I loved it so much. I really miss living there and your podcast is a nice reminder of those wonderful days I spent at Waimanalo or Bellows Beach. I look forward to hearing more. Keep 'em coming! Dawna

Hi Ryan! Greetings from the great Midwest and Chicagoland. Good to see you back on the air once more - I knew you'd be back so I kept the subscription in my iPod. Great band Pali - I'll be looking for their CD! And I'll be experiencing that wonderful Hawaiian hospitality in Jan 2007, so keep the broadcasts coming.... Thanks! Phil.

Hey Ryan. It's great to see you back in my podcatcher! I really enjoyed this show. Lava Net was my first ISP back in ol' 97 (they were such friendly people)...great music. I really wish you would do a weekly show, but I'm grateful for whatever you decide to do. Take care, Carl

Thanks for the dedication! I feel honored. Our Katie is doing very well, and loves to keep us up at night. Her mother is taking her on her first plane trip this Thursday. They're going up to Illinois to visit the great-grandparents. I'll have the entire weekend to attempt cleaning the house. There are plenty of pictures if anyone wants to take a peek!

hurrah!! i was thrilled to see iTunes downloading anew episode this weekend, and almost didn't believe it was going to b a new show. welcome back! save this show for my walk this afternoon -- i needed motivation to do two mile in 95 degree heat and 4,029% humidity (never mind the killer hill). thanks for the survival help. btw, i have listened to episode #35, i finally had to give in and buy cds from Darin Leong, Pete Kilburn, and the Slack Key Guitar vol. 2. no substitute for you and all the news, but it did calm the withdrawal shakes. ;) looks like i'm going to have to set the tivo for psych -- it's so overloaded already, i was hesitating, but you and Jen have convinced me. can't wait to hear from you again, Kelly

I was so going to write in about Kristen Nelson guesting on The West Wing. Great minds think alike. I really like Psych and I am a huge West Wing fan. I love that The Closer. Its really great. It is a lot of fun. Great to have another podcast from you guys. I've missed hearing your voices.

Count me in as a "Psych" fan. The show does require far more suspension of belief than other shows, but the chemistry between Dule Hill and James Roday is wonderful. The "Psychouts" at the end of the show are invaluable! I'm not that much of a fan of Tim Omundson, though (Det. Lassiter). Either the writers need to add more dimension to the character, or Omundson needs to add something because he's flat as a fall guy. Kirsten Nelson was the Young Mrs. Landingham on "The West Wing", and I always liked her after that. Nice to see her as a regular on a show. "Eureka" on the Sci-Fi channel has a bit of the same tone as "Psych" -- not as heavily comedic but certainly quirky enough. Is "The Closer" on your TiVo?

Can you please mention this on your podcast? A young Filipina-American woman, Christine Pechera, is dying from non-Hodgkins lymphoma and is searching desperately for a bone marrow donor match. Christine is my cousin. Can you please visit and see if you can help? The donor doesn't have to be Filipino, but the likelihood for a match is increased if the donor is of the same ethnic background. Unfortunately, while holding the record as the second largest Asian group in America, Filipinos have one of the least, if not the least, number of registrants in the national bone marrow registry. We are reaching out to the community to respond, for the sake of Christine and for all the people who may walk down the same unfortunate path. The process is simple to be tested as a potential donor. You fill out a form for a self-test kit from, and the kit is express mailed to you. If you're a U.S. citizen and a minority, it's a FREE. Simply follow the instructions and swab the inside of your cheeks with the cotton Q-Tips provided. No blood is involved. Mail the kit back in the envelope provided. That's it. A few minutes of your time to save possibly a life. If you match, you will be notified and you can decide at that time if you'd like to proceed as a donor. The chances of matching are low, as there are over 20,000 different bone marrow types. Please spread the word to your family, friends and associates. Thank you! - Macario Dionisio Feliciano, III Volunteer for[...]
