Just a reminder to people on Facebook and other social media, we are NOT Alex and neither are any of the other pages or accounts that you come across (even those who claim being “official”, or act is if they are him). There is only one official social media page that was set up by Alex’s own assistant for him – Alex O’Loughlin on Facebook. And even there Alex himself never interacts and rarely make any comments himself. Every other page or account or group on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram about him and with his name it it, are just fan pages.
So if you think that you are chatting or interacting with Alex himself anywhere, you are not. In many interviews he mentions his reluctance and lack of time to do any of the social media stuff, and I for one do not blame him for it. When I look at some of the stuff people say when they think they are communicating with him, I am amazed. Most of the time I do not know if one should laugh or cry or just roll my eyes, when you read some of it…..
I also just want to remind people, that we are a fansite for Alex and not Hawaii Five-0, or any of the other actors in it. If we add anything of some of the others, then it is pure luck for their fans or for the show’s fans.
Life on the Set:
- Most of this week’s set pictures were posted on Monday and we already made a post for it earlier this week. You can see it here: Goodies from the #H50 set – Pictures from 11 July 2016
danieldaekim Good morning from #H50 ☀️
dana__park Who would have guessed…Hawaii Five-O filiming at our hotel!
There’s Steve and Danno 😂😂dana__park Here’s another pic of Alex O’Loughlin shooting Hawaii Five-O. He was wearing bandage next to an EMS car and the next moment SWAT team was rushing inside the hotel and everything😂 It was fun watching!

- “New” old picture from June 2011 posted this week.
Addicted to Alex O’Loughlin Photo of Alex taken June 14, 2011. Love the T-shirt 🙂 (p.s. unfortunately the photo was found edited)
The words on the back of the T-shirt are the famous quote from Mohammed Ali: “Float like a butterfly, sting like a bee.”
My guess is that it was either a picture from a fan who stole a random shot of Alex somewhere, or paparazzi in Hawaii who took the picture back in 2011. I could never find the source of the old picture that we had before (below), which I presumed was taken on the same day, because it looks like a similar setting and the front of the T-shirts show’s Mohammed Ali’s name.
News for the week:
- So much sadness in the world this week. My thoughts posted this week: Thought for the day …..
A Penny for Your Thoughts:
(Just for fun – sorry I could not help myself)
My version of their thoughts …..
Scott Caan: Why do I always land these roles where the writers make me look like a whining asshole? Maybe I should get a new agent.
Alex O’Loughlin: Really, Steve is going to do all this action stuff shortly after nearly dying and having a liver transplant. Yikes, Dr Gonzo is gonna freak out when he sees this. Wonder if he’ll still be my mate and take my calls?
Julie Benz: Look, I am standing between the two most gorgeous men in Hawaii. Feeling a bit nervous I guess.
Daniel Dae Kim: I need to smile nicely for this one. Going to post this on IG and hope nobody cuts me out of it. I really wish Grace was not powdering her nose, because I know everybody is going to scream, “Where’s Kono” again.
Chi McBride: I love my job! Life is great!
Something Pretty from other fans:
Nice example of fanart
Some Laughs for the week:
I find it amusing that people do not understand the concept of the freedom of expression and the freedom of use of pictures posted on the internet. Nor do some seem to understand fanart. Fanart where you use existing pictures to creatively make something else of your own. Something new and pretty, using just the subject of your affection. (And here I of course exclude the constant use of putting faces on other bodies, or creating sexual, naked, or ‘intimate’ pictures that never existed before. In my eyes that is not fanart, but deceitful and shows disrespect).
I am kind of tired of being vilified on social media for using existing pictures from any source to create our own fun. We share all pictures with full credit, but what we do with those pictures after that, is definitely not with disrespect to the original poster. We have a number of different pages and we do not always want to post the same looking pictures everywhere, over and over and over again. And especially not just keep on reposting everything just as all the other 100’s of fan pages do. Maybe it is just a bit too difficult a concept for some to grasp. But I guess we will always have the simple-minded with us – especially those who always want to find something sinister in every small action ……
Hypocrisy and weird logic (coming from a certain very loud faction) in this fandom, never seize to amaze me. And how people believe their own and other people’s bullshit, without actually getting all the facts for themselves, are amusing.
Sorry for this rant. Most of you won’t even know what it is about. But I had to get it of my chest after being made aware of certain conversations on social media.
The words of a fangirl:
Most ‘interesting’ search for the week:
sex faces what alex oloughlin looks like in the heat of passion
Of course we have an old post from 2013 with this:
But there are loads more of these Alex “O” faces to be found.
- According to my calculation they should be finished with filming Episode 7:01 by now and start with Episode 7:02 this week.
Relax and have fun with your fangirling.
The real world out there is hard enough!
