Haole is a Hawaiian word for a foreigner or a white person. It's also my favorite new word. I really want to start working it in to daily conversations but I'm still not speaking English that often so I have to take advantage of my newly expanded vocabulary.

The word is apparently common on most of the pacific Islands. I learned it from a Filipino guy from Guam. Some example sentences would be like:

  • You just ran over my bike, you stupid haole!
  • This haole guy came in to my shop a puked all over my coconuts.
  • I think that haole girl is traying to talk to you
  • Take your surfboard and get out of here. This is a local spot: no haoles allowed!

For anyone who's been wondering what the Chinese have been reverse engineering lately, it's Flickr. fotolog is pretty interesting and easy for anyone familiar with flickr to figure out, as most of the design and features are direct rip-offs. I made myself an account and plan on using it until the Chinese government shuts me down!

Nice Shot

Video is playing at the Tokyo Helloz Nice Shot event coming up this 7/3 at the Meidaimae Gourd Island Studios. The space is supposed to be pretty big so it will probably be a good event.
