Today is the release of Shep Gordon’s new autobiography, “They Call Me Supermensch: A Backstage Pass to the Amazing Worlds of Film, Food and Rock ‘n’ Roll.” For those who didn’t read our profile of the Maui resident (“The Good Shepherd,” April/May 2015 issue; link below), Gordon is the man behind rocks stars like Jimi Hendrix and Alice Cooper; he invented the idea of the celebrity chef with Emeril Lagasse; and he was the subject of Mike Meyers’ recent documentary, “Supermensch: The Legend of Shep Gordon.” His new book tracing his long, strange trip through the heart of show biz is a warm and hilarious mix of anecdotes and outrageous stories. Congratulations Shep!

One aspect highlighted the use of song to make a statement, specifically the mele “Ka Wai a Kāne”. According to ʻIkaʻaka Pang, a Ka Haka ʻUla o Keʻelikōlani student, “Reggae has universal popularity nowadays. Kaʻikena used this popular genre that is often a platform for addressing social issues to give this mele renewed meaning for us today!” Kailihou says that, “We know that understanding and using our Hawaiian language gives us a unique perspective. Using our language to continually recontextualize traditional knowledge for new generations is critical.”
We enjoyed a good meal at the cute Hana Hou Restaurant. My teriyaki burger with a hand-made patty and fresh bun was good. The toppings were good but a little messy. I didn’t care for the mayo they put on the burger though. Mayo and teriyaki were not a good combination. Key lime and banana cream pies were both good. Service was okay but it was a little slow because they were tending to some large groups. We loved the aquamarine chairs and the 1950s Hawaiian vibe of the restaurant.
Urban Panorama gives voice to urban tribes defined by their gritty attitude and colorful graffiti style. It is a well-defined manifesto of denim displayed in infinite variations. It’s a space for those yearning for freedom, with inspiration drawn from biker culture and ethnic influences. The watchword here is layering and mixing shapes, fabrics and styles.
I had an aloha moment while eating the terriyaki salmon plate in downtown San Diego.    Paid $14.00 for plate lunch, and loved every bite.  Very healthy and tasty. Will be looking forward to sampling more the island food. Though a bit pricey, the food was worth every bite.  I will be saving my money to visit them again.

10. n. the “leading god among the great gods” (HM 42); a god of creation and the ancestor of chiefs and commoners; a god of sunlight, fresh water, and forests (Thrum, p. 82) to whom no human sacrifices were made. In prayers to Kāne (HM 53-55) his name is followed by more than seventy epithets. Kanaloa was his constant companion, but Kāne’s name always preceded. Twelve sacred paradisic islands lay off the Hawaiian group “within easy reach,” visible on the distant horizon at sunrise and sunset. One is Kāne-hūnā-moku (Kāne hidden island) where Kāne and Kanaloa lived. (HM 67) The twenty-seventh night of the lunar month was sacred to Kāne. see UL 257-259 for a famous chant to Kāne. lit., male.

This is the value of personal well being. Literally translated, Nānā i ke kumu means “look to your source.” Seek authenticity, and be true to who you are. Get grounded within your sense of self. Keep your Aloha at the surface of what you do daily, and celebrate those things that define your personal truths. To value Nānā i ke kumu is to practice Mahalo for your sense of self: Do you really know how extraordinary and naturally wise you are? Find out. Become more self-aware. It’s the best discovery you’ll ever make, and it opens a tap to increasing personal wealth (beyond mere finances, wealth is a value too!)

Kawika has been an active artist participant in MAMo: Maoli Arts Movement since 2012, and in 2013, was awarded a Master’s Apprenticeship through the Hawaiʻi State State Foundation in the Culture and the Arts with his hulu master, Paullette Kahalepuna (2014 MAMo Awardee, and 2014 ʻŌʻō Awards Recepient). Under this apprenticeship with Paullette, Kawika studied Hawaiian feather work in the forms of lei (adornment), kahili (feather standard), ahuʻula (cape), and mahiʻole (helmets). He also studied works from traditional materials, and how to use, cultivate, and preserve these materials.
On October 7, 2011, the 25th Anniversary of Hālau Nā Mamo O Puʻuanahulu, in the quiet surroundings of Kaʻaʻawa, seven Alakaʻi had their ʻŪniki along with twelve ʻOlapa. While the “training” lasted 6 years, everything Kumu Sonny had taught them from the time they became members of the hālau was in preparation for that day. However, it was the Luna Loiloi—Kumu Hula Hōkūlani Holt-Padilla, Kumu Hula Kealiʻi Reichel, Kumu Hula Nālani Kanakaʻole, and Kumu Hula Leinaala Kalama Heine—that made the final as to whether the candidate would pass their ‘ūniki. It was especially prolific that Kumu Lōpaka and his sister, Kumu Lāhela, who had been a part of every important hula experience in his life, and the five other Alaka‘i would be deemed worthy of the title of Kumu Hula together. The following morning, Kumu Sonny presented his seven pua; the lālā of Hālau Nā Mamo O Puʻuanahulu, to their ʻOhana, Hoaloha, and fellow Kumu Hula. It was at this moment that all seven were welcomed into the guild of Kumu Hula publicly—it was one of the most beautiful experiences of his life.
Robert’s hula career began when he met his kumu, Maiki Aiu Lake, while a student at Kamehameha Schools. Robert was part of Aiu’s largest, and possibly most famous, 1973 ʻUniki Lehua class. It is during this time that Robert embraced his kumu and her mantra, “Hula Is Life.”
