at home with a hanasaurusrex

and the oscar goes to.. bingo!

First of all, I can NOT believe Inception didn’t win for Original Score. Seriously Academy… Social Network??!! I haven’t seen Social Network.. yet… I’m not really a huge movie fanatic, but someday I’m sure I will—thank you Netflix—and I just seriously doubt its soundtrack will over shadow the music from Inception. Seriously doubt!

Aside from that, though, the night was a great success ’cause we had an Oscar Bingo party! Woot Woot! Complete with popcorn and JujyFruits, friends and the kind of sidebar sarcastic humor that you’d expect from a group of non-famous people, slightly bored, sitting around watching famous people who are also slightly bored. I mean, really, why was James Franco even there last night? That was clearly Anne Hathaway’s night. Arm candy? He looked pretty wasted to us.

Speaking of arm candy…

Wait! Did you say “Oscar Bingo?”?! Yes, I know, what a fantabulous idea!

I found the free printable cards online, served up in my daily email from Thrillist, complete with a button you could click to randomize the order of the pretty hilarious and somewhat down right “damn girl!” mini Oscar scenarios they had created in each square. Whatever it was had to happen before you could claim the square in your quest for a BINGO! I had a bunch of old stamps that we used to blot out the spaces.

I thought at first there’s no way anyone could win because the situations they’d created were pretty far-fetched, but—snap!—with the help of the George Clooney looks amazing free space—clearly a given—I actually got one space away from having bingo in two different directions!

It was tons-o-fun, thank you Thrillist, and of course, by the end of the night I did get a little silly with my Twizzlers…

Limited Edition : Kaleidoscope Posters

Now I can show you how it all wrapped up. After a year of designing fliers for the Kaleidoscope show it’s all coming to an end this month. So to commemorate the series we decided to print a poster. Well, we printed a few of them and if you get down to one of the Tuesday night shows in July you may be able to pick one up! They are in very limited supply and only $10 bucks each!

Kaleidoscope will go on… it may or may not keep it’s Tuesday night schedule, but it will be keeping it’s home at Honolulu’s ThirtyNine Hotel. If you haven’t had the opportunity to head down there and check it out I high suggest you do at some point. It’s chill, intimate, live and a great mix of local music and art!

Here I go… I’m about to post images of the last Kaleidoscope months when I look back and realize I haven’t posted any images of Kaleidoscope since last year! So before I can show you the Limited Edition poster print of all the dolls I have to go back into time…. this is where you see wavy fuzzy lines and hear sci-fi sound effects.

Starting back in August this year, Banana Grafeeks was asked to create a series of fliers for the Honolulu hot spot, Thirtynine Hotel. The challenge, something tonal in color to change each month with a consistent theme.

The series promotes their ongoing Tuesday night Kaleidoscope party; a party highlighting Hawaii’s awesome local underground music scene. And let me tell you… if you think the only good music in Hawaii is Jack Johnson or Pepper; you’d be in for a more than pleasant surprise if the mainland record wigs would ever put up an ear over here, but i digress…

Of course we accepted; We love 39!

The results…
