Bugsy the Cat Benefit

Wednesday, September 24th, 2008

My buddy Mike’s cat was run over by a car this past week. The unknown vehicle shattered the cat’s femur, legs, and jaw. Mike’s been through a lot with this cat, and he and his wife are now spending upwards of 7000$ for surgery and therapy for the poor thing. It sounds crazy, but if your a animal lover, and own pets, you understand how it goes. Since Mike has gone broke putting vet bills on his credit card the nice folks over at Mecury Bar in Chinatown, Honolulu will be throwing a last minute benefit for Bugsy the Cat. Details below:

Here’s our Marketing Director, Jason Shibata, punting a freesurf air in rural Philippines at The Billabong Cloud Nine Invitational Contest. Since he has limited internet access and may be in a balut-induced coma, I’ll post for him today. Bats said the surf has been small, but really clean. So far he’s made two heats and is in the quarterfinals.


Updates via Surfers Village:

“It’s great to be back at Cloud 9,” said Shibata. “It’s one of my favorite waves to surf, so a win today means a lot. Hopefully it’ll put me in good stead heading into round three.”

Aqua Forest

Sunday, September 21st, 2008

Aqua Forest Aquarium is a unique retail aquarium store located in San Francisco. It is the first aquarium store in the US dedicated to the Nature Aquarium Style, pioneered by Takashi Amano over the last decade. This style imitates natural landscapes such as miniature mountain ranges, often at a much smaller scale, within the aquarium. To learn more about the differences between Nature Style and Dutch Style aquarium composition, the two prevailing schools of thought, here.” thx neublack
