View previous topic View next topic Go down  Message [Page 1 of 1]

Hello folks,
I was invited to jam with my trio friend's RB group. We may be offered a gig in a club in Waikiki with this woman Milissa. We be doing stuff like Chaka Kan (apology if I err the name). For this gig there was no rehearsal, just one of those afternoon straight ahead jams...got me some fun. Sound bits is not your greatest though Wink Sure sounded great there, live.

Just straight ahead shuffling on a jam gig out here on Magic Island. Great afternoon, for sun, fun and just a simple jam.
The Youtube did not have a share button but you may be able to get there after being logged in with the http below.

Shalom all!

Hi Dave,
It sure was fun doing that. I've not done jams like that for a while and was attractive when it was offered to me. And of course, we could've seriously tighten up musically but, again, just a non-threatening scenario of fun in the sun! But as getting tight?...Probably happen when we get signed into that club with Milissa. What time of the year does your area get warmer? Milissa comes from a pretty cold place as well and loves it here. Hopefully she can land more gigs. Right after the jam, she had to rush to her temporal job, at Dave and Busters Restaurant, about 5 minutes from that park we played.

Thanks,
Glenn

I really enjoyed both my visits to Philly, Dave. I want to go back
there again one day soon. I love places with deep rooted history.
Philadelphia and the surronding regions is where this land began as a
country. That is so awe inspiring to me. My first visit there I stood within
arms length of the Liberty Bell. Almost brought me to tears.

The irony of it all was that that the fore fathers of this country who wrote the
declaration of independence didn't include my fore fathers in that writing being
how they were viewed as property and not men and women of rights of free will.
Yet, those words I believe were God inspired and the meaning behind them came to
fruition that they must apply to EVERYONE or they mean nothing at all. Thus being
inspired of God, those written words had no choice but to spill a meaning that saturated
every man, woman and child.

T. Jefferson et. al had no idea the vast number of races, colors and creeds those mighty and
powerful words would envelope and effect. There's just no stopping God's plan.

But of all the places I've been in this land, I'll remember and cherish my visits to Philadephia most.

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.--That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, --That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

Hello D,

Good hearing you man and all the christian history of this country and that is so very true...but where have it all gone...ask the liberals and they tell you differently...oh man, I can hear'em now.

But anyhow, add this to your repertoire. Ancient Hawaiians (not contemporary) were monotheistic in their belief of only one God creator of the heavens and earth. Now check this....they were actual believers "before" the missionaries ever set foot in the islands. They have an ancient story told to their children of a garden where God was over all that exist and the first two human beings created from the ground up...a total revelation and was not taught by any human or missionary. Some (foreigners) held true to their mission of supposedly bringing the Gospel to the Hawaiian but then some (most) fell into an organized conspiracy and compromised their original mission of bringing Christianity into the Hawaiian chain. Give it time, they succumbed to forcefully overtake Queen Liliokalani's palace (Hawaiian Sovereignty) and eventually took hold of governing the Hawaiian nation. Tons, massive breathtaking real estate was stolen from these people purely for self-profit (gods of imperialism) without any concern for the Hawaiian families. Many died from disease that was unheard of in the islands until the self-serving, so called missionaries came. But for me?...my Sovereignty is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords...Christ Jesus...until the Hawaiian accepts that much can be changed or transformed in their favor according to God's original plans for these people, I believe it....Amen?

I could go on but I won't. Too much to say.

The book with this documentation;
Perpetuated in Righteousness - the unedited edition
Paul Kamanu and other elders of the christian church of the Hawaiian. Research that was purposely hidden from local schools and the University of Hawaii's cultural studies.

But anyway hope you like the video.

Shalom and much Aloha!

_______________________________________

Don't know much about it but I would say most of the Pilgrims held strong to their convictions not just to God but to the Great Commission in serving the Indian well. And by the way, some do not like being referred to 'american.' Hmmm Sad ....But anyway, although I've heard differently from the minimal Indian people that do reside here in Hawaii and have joined forces with the Hawaiian in being proactive politically against the overthrow of the Hawaiian Monarchy. What happened to the Hawaiian, in the Indian's world view, happened to them and so they see their unfortunate commonality there. Although those demonstrations at the Queen's Palace (now a tourist attraction "owned" by the state of Hawaii, not the Hawaiians), have not been happening as much due to the modified legislation that discourages the Hawaiian's rights to land. D, there is substantial commercial investments (billions) that makes returning that real estate difficult, if not, appears near impossible. They have been some land actually returned after many many many years of protest till finally released by the state (Hawaiian Homelands). But with the current generation of Hawaiian's not being taught how to be self sufficient in utilizing that land as their ancestors shows no enthusiasm there. In brief, their cultural identity is of no real significance as modern American society have pretty much took prominence. Although there are a few that are still trying to preserve their fire to take back what was stolen from them, historically speaking. But you will see the arts, such as ancient hula (dance) or tapestry, to name a few, as subdued and even fading evidences of surviving cultural traits hanging on thread ends.....God bless America.

I will always respect the Hawaiian not just because my first marriage was to one giving me three beautiful Hawaiian-mixed daughters, but simply because....God loves them.

This can be a very sticky situation just talking about it. I mean, it can lead into the aged misconceptions of the Crusades etc. and etc. and I choose not to go there.....and by the way, did you enjoy the video?

It's what Thanksgiving is supposed to represent rac.

But my point is European settlers came and were welcomed
by the true indigenous occupants of this land. The American
Indians showed these new comers much about farming and
raising food, they welcomed them to their land and even held
a feast in the settlers honor which is now a part of the Thanks-
giving triditional holiday as we know it today.

Long story short, the American Indians wound up having their
land stripped from them when more of these settlers arrived
and were eventually placed on reservations.

I posted that in referrence to the quote of yours that is below.

Religious beliefs not withstanding.

Give it time, they succumbed to forcefully overtake Queen Liliokalani's palace (Hawaiian Sovereignty) and eventually took hold of governing the Hawaiian nation.

That's correct D, it's that aged old scenario that always seems to replay itself in history when people forget their calling and original purpose. I think lot of it has to do with distorted views of the material and the misuse of power. And this shows itself at the expense of people not being in a particular system that's totally foreign to their culture and existence.

And that is why in my world view, a christian one, is that God sent His son to forgive, to restore people's lives and change our perceptions in ways we relate to one another, in spite of the differences in cultures. That's why I thank God where I was born and raised. It's a land of many cultures, a diverse community of people groups that basically learn to see as people that it is possible, or a necessity, to actually live and see each other as neighbors...in the real sense of that word. So outside of the political pitfalls, people here are generally easy to get along with, christian or other. That is the spirit of friendliness and of Aloha....and like love, that associates with this kind of openness, you will have risks of being....easily taken.
