  • While there are eternal truths such as gravity exists but why? (theory/model/faith) yet life is a series of half-truths that create an understanding or an illusion of preference  for each of us when added up making what some call that faith theory or modeling.

  • My personal opinion is that I am HALF right, and you are HALF wrong.

  •  perhaps we are all conservatives yet we take the things that are offbeat and outcast at times and propose a better life that is more inclusive of the individuals in a society that is the liberal way

DEV>FFM 9: pueo


Recommended Posts

...and then she was eaten by a shark. (true story)

have my overly ambitious CHALLENGE: flipped fairytales. I chose the legend of Kahalaopuna. no optional challenge, because Hawaiian doesn't use rhyme. this might not count as a fairytale, but it wasn't overtly mythological, so there.

this is a very well known story. there's an opera about it, several songs, apparently a live action retelling on Youtube I didn't have time to watch yet. lots of things!! it's also the story I know the best, because I had to do a presentation about it. the presentation was in Hawaiian on the local radio station and it was just a lot of "a make 'ia, a ho'ola 'ia, a make 'ia, a ho'ola 'ia....." because the story has her murdered FIVE times.

I changed very little about the story, just put it from pueo's point of view and changed the emphasis on her beauty. all the tragic beautiful women (and men) in these legends. being pretty gets you killed. and occasionally brought back to life.

Pueo is the Hawaiian word for owl.
Kauatuahine is the name for the Manoa rain (legend is she became the rain after her child's death). I used the alternate spelling of Kauatuahine's name because that's the way I remember it.
Kahaukani is the name for Manoa wind.

the version of the story I used for reference (mahalo nui loa ia Mrs. Nakuia): sacred-texts.com/pac/hft/hft14…

shorter version for speed reading: imagesofoldhawaii.com/kahalaop…

this took like a week to finish, haha. I feel so tired :faint:

  • Idiocracy would not relate Repression to Communism due to their years of training by the misdirecting repressors.

  • In my opinion, I am HALF right, and you are HALF wrong. Let's part ways. Each of us is taking our HALF LIFE in peace.
