George Kahumoku Jr's Masters of Hawaiian Music Film Series on Kickstarter

This looks like a good project to support! We've enjoyed George's shows in Maui on several of our trips, and now it looks like he's starting a documentary film series that he hopes to market to schools, PBS stations (Hello, KTCS Seattle and WTTW Chicago!) and as DVDs.

George Kahumoku Jr’s Masters Of Hawaiian Music Film Series
George Kahumoku Jr., The Slack Key Show, and Makai Studios are documenting The Master’s of Hawaiian Music in a new film series.

SUCCEEDED (Not Really)

Discovered that using the "vanity" ID instead of the 21-digit ID number in the WordPress settings page works just as well. It had stopped working about a week ago but it's working now.

UPDATE: Actually, it’s NOT WORKING. I fooled myself. Still faffing around, trying to figure out the API key and not sure if the vanity URL works or if I have to figure out what the original numeric was.

Google+Blog for WordPress 1.3.4 [Bugfix Release]

Hot on the heels of +Mike Elgan's #blogsofaugust  campaign I have gone ahead and updated the Google+Blog for WordPress plugin.  I originally created this plugin as I saw how great G+ was as a blogging platform but noticed many users were still wanting to keep their own sites populated with their own content.  

Google+Blog for WordPress is a plugin that allows you to import your Google+ Public posts (and their comments) as blog posts into your WordPress setup. There is a free version and a paid version ($10), both of which can be found at http://gpb.minimali.se/google+blog/ 

Paid users, please update by going to http://gpb.minimali.se/google+blog/YourTransactionId/ to download. Where 'YourTransactionId' is the number emailed to you.

Update Details

- Fixed issue with shared youtube videos
- Better handling of some vimeo embeds
- Comment dates should now be more accurate
- Remove jQuery dependence

To update please deactivate and delete the existing plugin prior to installing this one.

Time to update the Google+Blog Update

I'm having a problem getting posts to publish – so I downloaded a new version of +Daniel Treadwell 's plugin and installed it (see below, it's a process, and installing it involves uploading and installing from the zip file). Problem is, I don't have a Google ID number, I now have a "vanity" URL with my + name. So will it work? I'm about to find out.

The Souper Bowl Of Caring Is Full Of Tears

20140201-081115.jpg

You may have heard about the Utah elementary school that took lunch trays away from kids whose lunch accounts had negative balances, after a Salt Lake “nutrition manager” came in to investigate why so many accounts were in arrears.

This bean counter is now on leave, and the cafeteria manager and workers are being blamed for handling the directive badly. Yes, they let the kids build up the negative balances, so they could EAT THE SAME LUNCH as the other kids. And then they scrambled to apply what is reportedly district policy, because in Utah authority is generally not questioned, no matter how wrong-headed it may be. Apparently the system can’t identify account deficits until the tray of food is at the register, which is stupid.

That’s Uintah, my old grade school, in the news. I went there in the old building, which was condemned and rebuilt long ago because it had asbestos everywhere. Now it’s being condemned for the actions of asshats in authority.

Meanwhile, the Salt Lake Unified School District has some damage control to do, as this screenshot of their Facebook page has their upbeat “Souper Bowl of Caring” post immediately before their response to the Uintah “Cheese Sammich and Banana of Shame” incident.

Or was it the “No Souper Bowl of Uncaring For You, Hungry Child” incident?

Remembering Pete Seeger: The Banks Of Marble

My friend the late Fr. Paul Brouillette was huge Seeger fan and fellow banjo player; he once played and sang this in church. He was that kind of guy, and today he welcomes his hero to the celestial jam session.

I once heard a young Occupy Chicago protester sing it via a live Internet feed. Still relevant, still rousing the rabble, Seeger’s passing means the banksters have one less whiny folksinger to criticize them.
