ENTERTAINMENT NEWS

Ron Funches is among a list of 35 nationally recognized comics who will be performing at the Maui Comedy Festival. We asked him a few questions about Maui and about comedy in general.

The two-month Festivals of Aloha event continues with a week long celebration in the east Maui town of Hāna through Oct. 25, that includes a talent show, sporting events, and hōʻike night.

We recently got a chance to sit and talk story with musician Marty Dread. Here in Hawaiʻi we know him as the friendly "Reggae Ambassador," but we wanted to dig a little deeper into the man behind the music. Here is what he had to say.

Maui police anticipate a crowd of at least 30,000 at the upcoming Halloween festivities in Lahaina this year, in part because the event falls on a Friday, just ahead of the weekend. The projections are slightly ahead of last year when an estimated 28,000 people attended the event.

Combining his passion for wildlife and photography, marine naturalist John O'Leary captures vibrant images of the world beneath Maui's surface.

The two-month Festivals of Aloha event continues with three days of activities on Molokaʻi starting today, Oct. 9, and continuing through Saturday, Oct. 11, 2014.

Why did they feel the way they did? What do they wish they had been able to discuss in more depth in their review? Also: Did they play it wrong?


Fantasia: Music Evolved review: note for noteFantasia: Music Evolved is the most demanding rhythm game I've ever played. The problem with Fantasia is that it takes those cylinders — catchy songs, even catchier remixes and even entire game mechanics — and holds them hostage behind a frustrating, over-padded slog of a campaign. Harmonix nails the hard part of making a modern rhythm game Harmonix actually managed to nail the hard part of making a modern rhythm game: The studio found a new, intuitive way to interact with music.

Sinead O'Connor | Photo Credits: CorbisThe American Music Awards producers say a duet between Sinead O'Connor and  Pope Francis was never going to happen. In a lengthy post on her official website, O'Connor said that she was approached to perform at the American Music Awards — but that her invitation was rescinded after Dick Clark Productions couldn't get the Pope to agree to come on stage with her.
