Not caring what anyone anywhere thinks about anything. I’m going to binge watch Family Guy reruns and forget anyone anywhere exists…


Hawaii Five-0 a Blessing?

[Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park: 2011 Christmas Light Parade, Honolulu (My camera died so I was using my crappy phone. Trust me, it’s them.)]

As anyone in the modern world knows, the television show Hawaii Five-0 shoots on location here on Oahu. They are beginning shooting for the next season (2014-15) and streets get blocked, tourists gawk at the trucks (actors are a rare sight), and one entrepreneur sells t-shirts from the trunk of his car.

Tuesday, we had the ‘pleasure’ of them shooting a scene in front of the building where I work. As I drove in on this two lane street, half of it was taken up by their large equipment trucks¬†and traffic was blocked up across the other side of the cross street. I dreaded the congestion our building and small parking lot would face throughout the day, but my fears were unfounded as the trucks were packed up and gone by 9:00am.

The next day I read in the newspaper that there was a blessing ceremony for the new season held down at the Honolulu Zoo. Now, I’m wondering… how they can shoot early morning scenes at one end of Waikiki and a couple of hours later have a blessing ceremony for the first shots of the new season at the other end of Waikiki?

I guess if you want the media and the tourists to show up, you schedule the blessing ceremony a little bit later and at a more accessible location…
