Yup. That’s right as many of you know I’m back in Hawaii doing Hawaii Five-0 for a while so I’ve decided that that I will be resurrecting my old island-life blog: Dispatches From The Island. So if you want to keep up to date of my random goings on check back every now and then.
So a while back I came across this Ted Talk.
Which led me to this company: Hampton Creek Foods .
Which led me to the store to find their products of which I only found Just Mayo. Which is great. But then we made contact and they sent me the GREATEST THING EVER!
Oh look how adorable. It’s like a one of those little ice creams from when you were a kid. The kind you ate with a flat wooden spoon.
Wait a minute. What’s this in the lid? A spoon?
They sent me three of these little cups.
I ate one. Amazing. Over too soon.
I gave one to a friend (mistake).
Then with the third one I managed to stop eating enough to squeeze out two
(one and half)
cookies that I actually baked to see how that works.
EVEN BETTER THAN THE DOUGH!
WHY AM I SCREAMING?!
Because you can’t get Eat the Dough in stores. You have to know someone or meet someone like I did.
So you have to start bothering these guys to get this stuff in stores pronto.
My work here is done.
Look I get a bunch of these campaigns sent to me from my friends to support their films. But no other film has been as important to me to support as this one.
“Extinction Soup” is a documentary feature film that exposes the mass slaughter of sharks for their fins and the movement to stop it.
Please help this film get made. Also my friends at Arm the Animals Have designed this shirt to support the movie. You can get something you want while supporting a good cause.
Okay enough campaigning.
Hung out in a prop house yesterday.
It was pretty cool.
And sometimes creepy.
Like a museum where you can touch the stuff.
It was a great example of how anytime you see a whole bunch of the same thing it’s automatically interesting.
Like these briefcases.
Or these wooden buckets.
Oh and they had an s-ton of taxidermy.
Some of it just laying around in shelves.
Yes that’s a full horse.
Dug this out of a box the other day. It was my first Mix Tape I ever made.
I called it Picks… But I spelled it with an X… To be cool.
It was assembled by the 45s I bought at the mall and a cassette tape of the Miami Vice soundtrack.
Here’s what was on it:
Dancing in the Streets – David Bowie and Mick Jagger
at Vinh Loi Tofu.
Having been vegetarian for a while and “off island” even longer sometimes I find myself yearning for the familiar flavors of Hawaii. So when I saw this “Seaweed Roll” on the counter at Vinh Loi amongst the other impulse items I had high hopes. It looked a lot like Hawaiian food you find in convenience stores and delis. My guess (or should I say hope) was that it was going to taste like the queen mother of all Hawaiian heat lamp food: The Spam Musubi.
So I took it home and warmed it up in the toaster oven to create the full effect. And… Pay off. Move over Spam Sub the Seaweed Roll is my new favorite food at Vinh Loi Tofu.
I don’t know how it would hold up against a real Spam Musubi to a meat eater. But for me it has brought me back to the time I had my first at pre-Don Quixote Daiei. (This reference may be too inside or mainlanders.)
Those of you who have frequented my imdb page may have noticed a little title called When We Were Pirates which has been on and off that list for years. (BTW imdb: I’ve still NEVER DONE A VOICE IN HITMAN: BLOOD MONEY.)
Anyway, it looks like that movie is going to come to fruition sooner than later and one of the things we’re doing to raise a little money for it is release the song that was previously released on youtube .
so those of you with 99 cents burning a hole in your pocket…
