A Hawaiian Transgender Sea Turtle video




The Byteful Glimpse series continues today with a transgender sea turtle video, taken at the lovely Richardson Beach just outside of Hilo on the Big Island.

Why transgender?

Well, you’ll just have to watch the video to find out. (And no, the data in this video wasn’t enough to confirm that, but it’s possible! Transgendered creatures have gotten a bad rep in the past, and today I want to set the record straight. This turtle was super cool.)

Share & Enjoy. :)

Transcript

Me: You can tell by the tail? Really? All right, I stand corrected.
The Lady: Males have longer tails because they use it to reach under the shell and inseminate the female.
Me: Wow. Thanks for telling all of my subscribers that. They’re going to log that one away.
The Lady: She’s pretty cool though. I wonder what she’s thinking about us.
Me: She’s probably wondering if we’re going to give her some rad food. Look at this guy, paddling out. Pretty good day for turtling… There he goes! Go! I’m deciding you’re male so, that’s all.
The Lady: Maybe it’s a gender *garbled*
Me: You think it could be a transgender, uh, should that be the name of the video? Transgender sea turtle? That would get some hits, right? There he goes!

Live Violin & Hang drum music at ‘La Hiki Ola’ Kava Bar video




On my way back from a short adventure in the North, I passed by the wondrous “La Hiki Ola” Kava Bar in downtown Pahoa.

I still can’t remember exactly why I was compelled to go up the narrow steps to the seldom-seen upper floor of the Kava Bar, but perhaps I shouldn’t be surprised since, as you’ll see in the video timestamp, this all happened almost exactly one year ago.

In any case, I found myself in the midst of a remarkable performance. Zhu the violinist, her boyfriend, and Dave, the owner, were jamming in a most zen-like and relaxing way. I found the music entrancing, and I’m so happy to finally share it with you today. If you like it, please retweet or Like this post. It really helps me bring you more videos straight from the heart of the Big Island.

Share & Enjoy. :)

None. It’s all just jams.
