TEDxHonolulu


7 days and counting until the "SOLD OUT" TEDxHonolulu 2011 "It's About Time..." conference at the Cupola Theatre of the Honolulu Design Center.


 


This past weekend I stopped by the Season's Best Craft and Gift Fair at the Blaisdell Exhibition Hall and I picked up these fresh watches from the Zionic O-Series, one in white on my right wrist and one in blue on my left wrist. Classy with a modern fashionable twist. Love it!





Check out Zionic's O-Series watches and get yours today:

about the artist

Born and raised in the art district of Honolulu's Chinatown, beatboxer Jason Tom, a fourth-generation Hawaiian Chinese American, has opened for Michael Winslow, Quest Crew and the Jabbawockeez and have been beatboxing for fun on audio cassette tapes since the age of four to Michael Jackson's "Bad" song. He is the founder of the Human Beatbox Academy and is a co-founder of the ArtSmith. Growing up with asthma, he has been on tour with Music With A Message and the American Lung Association of Hawaii since 2009.



Jason, influenced by the legendary song and dance men Fred Astaire, Gene Kelly and Michael Jackson, first became known in Hawaii for dazzling Hawaii audiences with his beatbox rendition of Billie Jean by fusing the moonwalk popping dance and the art of vocal percussion known as beatboxing.



Jason is the "Best Solo Performer" award recipient of the 2011 Scene Choice. He is a "Musician Deserving of a Wider Audience" in the Best of Honolulu Weekly 2009 issue voted by its readers. Jason presented "Vocal Groove" at TEDxHonolulu 2011, with his beatbox blend of Ozzy Osbourne's Crazy Train and collaboration with surprise guest popper Philosophy. Interviewed by Angela Keen, his quote "successful people fail more" resonated with conference attendees of TEDxHonolulu 2009 and is what he lives by through faith in Christ and perseverance.



In 2010, Jason launched his "On The Beat" shirt with a 1970's R. Crumb "Keep On Truckin" vibe hand illustrated by JKS, perpetuating an optimistic and persevering message of following through life with passion, creativity, ideas, hopes, visions, and dreams. His video dubbed "Jason Tom From Hawaii" ranked number one on the BEATBOX BATTLE TV  network. Jason won first place in the November 2011 First Thursdays Poetry Slam competition advancing him into the 2012 First Thursdays Grand Slam Finals hosted by Hawaii Slam. Few nights after that he competed in the Road to Austin Battle on Oahu and he will performed at events during the 2012 SXSW Festival.



Traveling coast to coast he performed at the 2011 Estria Invitational Graffiti Battle Finals in Oakland, California and the 2010 International Human Beatbox Convention in Brooklyn, New York. Jason is also featured beatboxing on Faioso's "I'm Movin' On" track in the 2010 Na Hoku Hanohano (Hawaii's Grammy Awards) "Best Hip-Hop/R&B" award nominated album "Nobody Owns Me."
