About Today’s Show

We’ve provided the info on our home-made “steady cam” and I’ve got links to the microphones we use too. Not sure how I forgot that yesterday!

Meanwhile, I’ve been affected by videobloggers and ze frank. First, there was jealousy that I was not producing something as beautiful as Jen and Kent nor as funny and spot on truthful as Ze. I thought of my show as rather “pedestrian” (said with snobby British accent). Then I remembered a few things… First, it is pedestrian – beach WALKS with Rox! Then I also remembered that although the #2 can sometimes beat me to the “first response” position, my #1 can easily enough step in and regain consciousness. (See show #102 to learn about 1 and 2.)

Here’s the bottom line: Anything worth doing, is worth doing badly. Stop letting the #2 (who tries to speak for all of the world’s population some days) keep you from trying new things or trying old things over and over again.

Here is the microphone link:
Sennheiser EQ100 G2 Wireless Microphone – We love this small, wireless mic system. It tucks inside my top and the wind noise disappears. It also comes with the handheld adapter; we use it with an inexpensive Radio Shack handheld for street interviews.

h3. About Today’s Show

I saw a bumper sticker this morning on an old car being driven by an old lady: You think my driving is bad? You should see my putting! I got a good laugh out of it. Doing things perfectly sure isn’t all it’s cracked up to be! These days, I’d much rather have some fun instead of stressing over my little flaws and failures. I find it easy to tap into the spirit of Aloha here in Hawaii to do that, as around every turn there is beauty and comfort. On the beach in the mornings, without exception, the people I run into say, “Ah, what’s to complain about? We live in Hawaii!” So that is beach walks for today, spreading aloha one download at a time.

Our wonderful theme music is Kaimoku: The Ukulele Experiment
