LIV LIFE

Spent an ethreal Sunday doing a whole lot of nothing except keeping the leisure dream alive. Kristen, Capri and I picked up expecting parents Paul and Ashley for a bit of bayside adventure. We felt like explorers discovering a new land as we dropped anchor at the picturesque Secret Island which is more like a peninsula but who cares it is still off the beaten path enough to discourage the unadventurous. The South Pacific vibes were going strong as we chatted the afternoon away under the shade of the Kualoa mountain ridge with cold beverage in hand. Although the entire crew of the F/V Capri M received great pleasure from our relaxing surroundings I can’t help but think that baby Liv, cozy in her mother’s womb was having the best time of all. – RM

So my last post was about the surprise “baby cue” our friends threw us. A little after I posted it to the blog, the homie, Tiff, sent me some pics that she took that day, so I decided to share some with all of you. Again, thank you to all our friends and family who were able to make it that day to celebrate with us.

SELF SEGREGATION

Camping on the Bellows Military compound is a bit regulated for my tastes but it does have it’s benefits. One being it keeps the riff raff from showing up at your camp site unannounced and empty handed. Last weekend provided what possibly could be the best weather and ocean conditions I have experienced at the traditionally onshore beach in over 20 years. I mean to have pure glass to the horizon is unheard of in these parts. I took full advantage of the epic water with sunrise paddles on the yak each morning and was blessed to bring home a bit a sashimi for the family with each trip. On the first night Capri and I sprung a leak in our air mattress and ended up on the ground by 5am… all good though… it was time to watch the sunrise anyway. Gave the mattress a quick pump and donated it to water activities. It was a big hit with the kids and adults alike. Uncle Brett and I caught all the action while lounging under the G-Men tent. We weren’t exactly roughing it either. I mean having toilets, hot showers and a shoppette that supplies cold beer and ice within walking distance is nice but… well you know. – RM

BABYCUE

Wednesday, September 24th, 2014 by

Some things never change, things such as barbecues, beaches, barbecuing on the beach but more importantly friends and family are things that will and should never change. And thats exactly how it felt being back “home” in Hawaii for 5 days last week. My wife and I decided to take a quick, last trip before baby comes, so a “babymoon,” if you will. And what better place to “babymoon,” than in paradise. Being that it was such a last minute trip, our friends and family surprised us, well rather surprised, my wife and threw us, as Alia dubbed it, a “babycue.” We definitely felt the love that was shown to us by our friends and family and I know that our little man did as well. It was a great afternoon filled with food, games, the beach and each others company, what more could you really ask for? I just want to say THANK YOU to everyone who showed up and a special thank you to my sister Brie and Alia, because without your guys’ planning, none of that would have been possible, so thank you! It will be awhile before we are able to come back, but when we do, it will be with our little man.

HAIGHT STREET MUSIC & MERCHANTS FESTIVAL

Monday, September 8th, 2014 by

Yesterday was the first ever “Haight Street Music & Merchants Festival” thrown by Black Scale, Pink Dolphin, Derby SF and Diamond. The block was filled with 3 stages, with DJ sets from Ruby Red I, Mind Motion, Erykah Badu, Talib Kweli, to name a few, people walking, dancing, smoking and drinking. All the shops were open, the bars were open where people were watching the Niners smack the Cowboys around, music was playing, the sun was out. Overall, it was a great day and great festival. With performances by Ya Boy, J Boog, Erykah Badu, IAMSU and the whole HBK gang, I’m sure this festival will be going strong for years to come. I tried taking good pics but I was too busy enjoying myself.

J.BOOG x HOT RAIN x 9TH ISLAND

Last Thursday, I got to check out the homies, Boog and Hot Rain perform at Brooklyn Bowl in Las Vegas. It felt like I was back home at a concert with all the “chee huu’s” being yelled throughout the venue, all the FITTED being rocked and of course, Boog and Hot Rain performing. Boog even brought out Wanya from Boyz II Men to sing a couple of notes with him on stage.
