Gratitude & Music


Here’s 2 of my morning practices: gratitude and listen to happy music! I wake up with gratitude to be alive and have an opportunity to try all kinds of stuff! I listen to some upbeat music, usually electronic dance music! To my critics against me when I co-produced the electronic dance music (“EDM”) concerts with G-Spot or Greg Dehnert, my friend since college, I really love EDM and that’s why I did business in that subsector of entertaiment! Everyday I use my wireless Beats headsets @beatsbydre I got for my yakudoshi from my good friend, Ryan Sanada. I say all my thanks and bounce to the beats of a happy song! Setting this positive mindset helps me to attack my work for the day! If my energy goes down, I recharge myself with another gratitude prayer and session of listening to fun music! Crush it my friends!!!

Music Plays A Huge Role In My Life!


Music plays a huge role in my life. I listen to songs with happy hooks and beats, especially electronic dance music to keep my myself happy and positive and when exercising. Classical and relaxing instrumental music is what I listen to when writing legal documents and researching laws. I like fun music when researching and writing business documents and nonfiction projects. When I write my novels and poems, I enjoy romantic and sad songs so I can bring out the emotions in the characters and dramatic scenes, then I switch to uplifting songs for the happy scenes. Here, I’m wearing my wireless Beats headset from my friend Ryan Sanada in my office with the plumeria flowers in the background. There’s also coconut trees behind the plumeria tree, all very relaxing to look at while I work!

I Feel the Love


I feel the love, I wanna get to know you.

I feel the love, let the past burn into the sun.

I feel the love, I really wanna show you now.

I feel the love, I wanna get to know you.

I feel the love, let the past burn into the sun.

Can’t get enough, so much I wanna show you now.

“Run” by Fhono


It feels hopeless in the darkness.

So I gotta go.

I’m not alone where milk and honey flows from misery to paradise.

Run! We can make it!

Shine through the darkness.

Music plays a big role in my life.


Music plays a big role in my life. I listen to instrumental or classical when I need to do deep thinking. To evoke my creativity, I enjoy pop, EDM, alternative, and reggae. When I’m feeling down or stressed, EDM is my favorite. When I think about it, EDM is my favorite for a lot of things: exercise, dance, chores, and writing.

You Owe Me


I don’t really say this often.
But there’s something that the papers forgot
Every time I read them, I know I feed them but I know
They’re painting but they can’t leave a mark
‘Cause my friends don’t read the papers
And they don’t really care if we’re awesome or not
So every time I read them, I know I feed them But I know,
They wanna see me hang on the wall
You don’t know me
Don’t you think that I get lonely?
It gets dark inside my head
Check my pulse and if I’m dead, you owe me
If you’re lonely
Don’t you think you’re on your own
When it gets dark inside your head
Check my pulse and if I’m dead, you owe me
Say it to my face if you mean it
Say it to my face, but you won’t
I know I’m not losing, but I’m losing my mind
Does anybody know what that’s like?
You don’t know me
Don’t you think that I get lonely?
It gets dark inside my head
Check my pulse and if I’m dead, you owe me
If you’re lonely
Don’t you think you’re on your own
When it gets dark inside your head
Check my pulse and if I’m dead, you owe me
“You Owe Me” by the Chainsmokers.

Keep Cool


Late night, wake up
I’m sick, I’m stuck
You’re here, so near
Your dream, my fear
Your love, my loss
Your dime, my cost
My fate, your hands
My life, your brand
Living my life in spite of you
This is the best that I can do
Nothing left for me to prove
I give it all to you
Nothing’s what we made it
And we’re living like we hate it
I have given all I can
But I can’t anymore
Freedom, I can taste it
And the truth, I need to face it
I’ve always been dedicated
But I can’t anymore

Crush


You’ve been my crush since the first time I saw your face. It makes me blush and I really don’t want to erase. The possibility of us together sometime. I just really wish someday you’ll be mine.

If balance can be achieved, there’s a chance to save love.


I’m feeling this song “Better” by Rihanna ft. The Chainsmokers & Martin Garrix. For those of you going through some struggles and heartache, I dedicate this song to you. With the bigger picture in mind, most things are not worth fighting about. If balance can be achieved, there’s a chance to save love.

I love music!

Call Me


You can call me, oh, if you’re lonely and need somebody.
You can call me, middle of the night when you need my body.
You can call me, you can call me, you know that you can tell everyone.
If you want me the way I want you.
Got my number, you know what to do, yeah.

You should know baby that you’re the best.


I just need to get it off my chest. Yeah more than you know, yeah more than you know. You should know that baby you’re the best. Yeah more than you know, yeah more than you know.

Sorry, these lyrics by Axwell Ingrosso’s song “More Than You Know” are playing in my head, but I just need to get it off my chest.

Music is one of the things that brings me joy!  It’s a tool that I apply to maintain my happiness.  There’s studies that show the positive effects music has on our lives.  That’s why I enjoy producing music concerts.  I’m so lucky to have partnered on some music events with my friend G who I became friends with from my days at the University of Hawaii at Manoa.  He got me to appreciate electronic dance music (EDM).  Though, I enjoy all types of music such as but not limited to classical, orchestra music, piano music, reggae, Hawaiian, all decades of pop, love songs, ballads, rock, alternative, hip hop, mellow electronic music, and electronic dance music.

We used to say this song made us feel some type of way.
It used to make us both feel free.
Underneath the covers you would grab my hand.
You’d say you’d never listen to it without me.

Stories Within Stories


I jumped into my old gun metal truck and drove to my late night hang-out, a coffee shop on the top of the hill above my house, after one of those weeks that furiously flew by. I pulled into the parking lot, and right in front of the coffee shop was a prime parking space that was positioned almost directly in front of the main entrance. I pulled the brake and shut off the engine. While patting the dash of my truck, I sent my thoughts of gratitude to it, “Thank you for taking care of me.” I counted this moment as my tenth win for the day.

I pulled my brief case from behind my seat and exited my truck, locking it with my key. My  remote control had long been discarded in a drawer within my personal office. It’s just something I didn’t care to fix after all these years.

I entered the coffee shop and paused by the display glass filled with sandwiches and pastries so I could pull out my smart phone from my front pocket of my jeans and open the app for the coffee shop, which I used for my transactions since you could get rewarded a free drink after a certain amount of purchases.

“Hey Riki, how are you?” asked Kelly, a cute barista with a mixture of Asian and Caucasian ethnicity who I’ve gotten to know over my many visits. She was always so welcoming.

I walked up to her cash register. “Good to be back at the office.”

“What will you get tonight?” Just as I opened my mouth to speak, Kelly blurted, “Wait, let me guess.”

I chuckled. “Alright.”

She closed her eyes and then opened them with a wide smile. “Hot, medium, Green tea latte?”

“Yes. I swear you have a gift.”

“Well, it’s either that or your hot, medium, plain old green tea. So my odds are pretty good in guessing your drink. Tonight you look a bit stressed and that’s when you go for the sweet stuff.”

“You’re really observant. I have to finish drafting a couple contracts for a friend.”

“Got to get paid right?”

“I don’t know. I only get paid if my friend gets paid.”

A frown formed on Kelly’s perplexed facial expression.

“If the deal doesn’t go through, I get nothing for all the work I do.”

“Damn.”

“It’s the nature of what I do.” If only she knew that I didn’t get paid even when I closed some deals with a couple of former business partners I had. I didn’t fight for anything that was owed to me, I just cut my losses and simply moved on.

I flashed my app on the screen of my smartphone in front of the scanner fronting the cash register. After a “beep” sound, I tapped a button and returned my phone back into my front pocket of my jeans.

“Well, I wish you the best on that deal. Have a productive session.”

“Will do. Thank you.”

I proceeded over to the counter where other customers waited to receive their orders. After a few minutes, my order was called by the barista who made my beverage, a young man named Todd with surfer blonde hair.

I strolled over to my favorite corner of the coffee shop where the counters rode along the windows, and lined up beside it were a number of high stools. I placed my briefcase on an unused stool next to me to my right. I pulled out my laptop from my briefcase and fired it up. I opened up a partial draft of one of the agreements I was working on for my friend. I stared at the words on the screen, which began to blur as I dozed off into another world. When my vision cleared up, I was no longer sitting on a stool in front of the window in my regular coffee shop. Instead, I was leaning back on a black leather couch in the more trendy coffee shop with dimmer lights that I’ve become so familiar with over my eight years of writing and reading this scene over and over.

Across the shop I saw Ken sitting at a small square table in front of Kaylee. He had already given her a chocolate cupcake in his attempt to liven up her spirits. He looked just as nervous as I had envisioned. I smiled and giggled quietly because I knew that he was changing the course of the future between the two of them. If only Ken and Kaylee could know how much a part of me has always been with them. Every bit of their pain has been mine, and every time they’ve experienced joy, I’ve felt it just the same. For it’s through their journey that I’m finding my way. If they can make others feel what I’ve felt, then I’m certain many others will find their way as well.

“Excuse me. Excuse me.”

I snapped back to reality and saw a young college-aged Asian girl standing next to me. “Is it okay if I plug my laptop into the outlet?” she asked and glanced under the counter. I followed her eyes and noticed the outlet just to the left of my leg.

“Oh yeah, sure. Go ahead.” I moved off my stool and stood to the side as she plugged in her laptop and returned to sit at a table behind me.

I got back onto my stool and returned to staring at my draft of the agreement on my computer. The minutes kept changing to higher numbers on my clock located near the upper right corner of my laptop, and still, I didn’t write anything new. “Screw this,” I murmured under my breath. I closed the document and opened up my query letter that was addressed to a boutique literary agency based in New York City. I took out my headset from my briefcase and played the songs from my playlist. I bobbed my head to a catchy song “Something Like This” by The Chainsmokers and Coldplay as I proceeded to re-write my query letter.

Feels Right


An energizing song “Feels Right” by Jocelyn Alice (Galloway Remix). A good song to dance to and lift your spirits.

Lyrics:

We don’t care if we do it right.
We don’t care what it looks like.
We’ve got love in the nightlife.
We’ve got love and it feels right.

My dream is to take you by the hand and dance with you on stage in front of tens of thousands of people as I play a set.


My dream is to take you by the hand and dance with you on stage in front of tens of thousands of people as my friend DJ G-Spot and I play a set. This fun song “Recess” by Golden Coast would be one of the songs in my set. I’m not sure who you’ll be but I got a target date of 2017 or 2018!

Here’s a song for you to dance into the new year!


Here’s a song for you to dance into the new year called “Physical” by St. Lucia. This band produces that feel good music that I love, which reminds me of the songs of my childhood in the 1980s, and it has that electronic sound in what we now call EDM or Electronic Dance Music, an area I’ve been involved in through my friend DJ G-Spot, my friend since college at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. To have that 80s and EDM sound is awesome! Hmm, I have some ideas as I’m writing this entry.

For those of you still preparing for 2017, enjoy and make the most of your last day of 2016! For the rest of you, Happy New Year! I have a very good feeling that we can do great things in 2017!

And it hurts with every heartbeat


Just found this song, “With Every Heartbeat” by Son of 8 & Phats & Small.

Nice beat – though the meaning behind the song and its music video can make your heart ache:

So I don’t look back.

Still I’m dying with every step I take.

But I don’t look back.

And it hurts with every heartbeat.

If you’re tired of walking alone, I’ll walk with you and watch the sky.


You don’t know, you don’t know, know.
Your eyes glow in the dark, they glow.
You got friends all around, around.
It’s just you and me, you and me are going down.

Baby if you follow me home, I’ll follow you forever.
If you’re not going out in the cold, I’ll wait for better weather.
If you’re tired of walking alone, I’ll walk with you and watch the sky.
No matter where you are, no matter where you are, I wanna hear your footsteps in the night.

Will you feel

Will you stay

Stay close

They Move in Sync to the Thumping of Our Hearts.


We crawl to the edge and peek over.

The dark blue waves far below us,

crashing against the rocky walls of our cliff.

They move in sync to the thumping of our hearts.

This is how I felt when I first met you.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, August 10, 2016 –

This song matches my poem.  It’s called “So Good To Me” by Chris Malinchak.

Multiple projects and issues are jumping around in my head.


Multiple projects and issues are jumping around in my head while calls and messages keep coming in. So much so that I made an error the other day on one of my tasks. Studies have shown that multi-tasking reduces our performance. It’s much better to focus on one task at a time to maximize our output and results.

With all the different projects and goals that I have to accomplish, I think my mind is going as fast as this song “Alone” by Marshmello.

What Is, Is.


What is, is.

What will be, will be.

We can’t dwell on what has happened, and worry about what will happen.

If we do, it will depress us, slow us down, and even kill us.

Good things will happen and so will bad things.

We have to appreciate what we have and focus on what we can control.

By accepting what is and what will be, we can keep moving forward.

To help us overcome our hardships, I dedicate this song to you called “Light It Up” by Major Lazer ft. Nyla and Fuse Dog.

Let’s Go!


“Let’s Go” by Tiesto ft. Icona Pop

I wanna scream at the top of my lungs.
I wanna do what has never been done.
I wanna light the spark.
The beats in a million hearts.
I wanna dance with my boys & my girls.
Dance like we’re gonna take over the world.
All in the name of love.
I wanna get me some.
One night is all it takes.
We’ve become wrong to make it right.
One night to save the day.
We’ll show them all.

Let’s Go!

Power and Money.


Power and money will attract the good and the bad. The bad get worse with their desire for it, and they get even worse when they get it. People are only around them because they have to. However, when the bad get taken down, without power and money, they lose their identity, and no one wants to be near them anymore because there’s no reason to be.

With or without power and money, the good stay the same. Power and money don’t define them. Its love and compassion that attract people around them.

To all of you getting yelled at in your careers, attacked by greed, judged by your success, and laughed at for your failures, stay positive with your love and compassion. We all love you and are cheering you on.

Anytime, you’re feeling down because of negativity, play the song below “Hype” by Calvin Harris and Dizzee Rascal because there will always be a hype around you, and we all need that special gift that only you can bring to this world!

Note: This type of concert would be fun in Hawaii!

Lyrics of “Hype” by Calvin Harris and Dizzee Rascal:

Top of the roster
Real deal, you can see it in my posture
I feel like Leo with a Oscar
The price just changed, no sour, it’ll cost ya
And I’m not an imposter
My style don’t borrow or foster
My enemies will not prosper
Seems like every time they take a shot they hit the crossbar
And I move like Neymar
Them boys ain’t even on my radar
I do my own stunts, no saviour
That’s why I gotta stunt so major
They say I go mad for the paper
I think I need a shrink and a tailor
But I do not think about failure
I’m a star, I should get my own trailer

Hype!
Every time I’m around there’s a hype
Touchdown and the crowd get’s hyped
Straight gassed, got the whole place hype
I’m a bad boy and I do what I like
Every time I’m around there’s a hype
Touchdown and the crowd get’s hyped
Straight gassed, got the whole place hype

[Beat break]

Hype
Every time I’m around there’s a hype
Touchdown and the crowd get’s hyped
Straight gassed, got the whole place hype
I’m a bad boy and I do what I like
Every time I’m around there’s a hype
Touchdown and the crowd get’s hyped
Straight gassed, got the whole place hype

[Beat break]

Straight gassed, got the whole place hype

I’m so legit
I do not slip, I just stick to the script
Fully equipped, there is no stopping me
I do not quit, I do not cip
Ready for action, I’ve gotta be physically fit
Sit-ups and burpees and dips
Gettin’ a grip and it’s making me physically sick
Somehow I still get a kick

Hype
Every time I’m around there’s a hype
Touchdown and the crowd get’s hyped
Straight gassed, got the whole place hype
I’m a bad boy and I do what I like
Every time I’m around there’s a hype
Touchdown and the crowd get’s hyped
Straight gassed, got the whole place hype

[Beat break]

Straight gassed, got the whole place hype

Hype
Every time I’m around there’s a hype
Touchdown and the crowd get’s hyped
Straight gassed, got the whole place hype
I’m a bad boy and I do what I like
Every time I’m around there’s a hype
Touchdown and the crowd get’s hyped
Straight gassed, got the whole place hype

Everything you do gives me power, makes me feel alive.


I love this song, War Paint by Fletcher and remixed by Young Bombs.

I dedicate this song to all of you who are trying to spread love and compassion. Everything you do gives me power, makes me feel alive.

The Music Sector – I’m Going to Love You Inside Out.


Of all the sectors to be involved with, people ask me why I’m involved with the music events sector. After soccer, I acted in theatre and a few TV commercials, so the arts has always been in my heart. It’s where creativity floats at a high. That’s why I enjoy writing fiction. Like many of you, music is a part of our soul. It has a way of lifting us up. During college, while I was Vice President of the student government of the University of Hawaii at Manoa, a member of the University of Hawaii American Marketing Association, a member of the University of Hawaii Pre-Law Society, a member of Sigma Lambda, a member of the Pearl City Neighborhood Board, a member of the Young Democrats of Hawaii, a member of the Honolulu Japanese Junior Chamber of Commerce, staff for politicians, volunteer for political candidates, and working in Flightline at Duty Free Shoppers Hawaii, my friend Gregory Dehnert, otherwise known as G or DJ G-Spot was bringing me to his music events and dance parties – now known as EDM, one of the biggest genres in the music industry. In 2014, G brought me into the the industry where I handled the logistics, government affairs, agreements, and media affairs. Now I understand the entire operations. For this, I will always be grateful.
