Life around #AlexOLoughlin – a week in review (15 – 24 Jul 2017)

Five years ago when we started this site, we mainly did it to have some fun in our own way with our online friends who also adored Alex. At the time there were a number of fansites for Alex and they were doing a great job at keeping fans updated on a daily basis about things around Alex and Hawaii Five-0. We were not really a news site, but more of just a fun site. Since then nearly all of the worthwhile sites have closed down – all for different reasons. We personally still miss them all dearly.

Seeing such a lot of the old information getting lost, we started to repost some of the old articles and interviews and do transcripts of most of the videos as well. But our main focus always remained at sharing as many good quality pictures (old and new) of Alex as we can find, as well as Paula’s animated gifs and picture art of Alex. We also had some fun incorporating them with studies of Alex and his work.

We only started doing these weekly review post 2 years ago when our friends at AOL.WorldWide stopped updating their site and doing these weekly updates. We saw a very time-consuming void that needed to be filled and we took up the task and added our own flair to it. However, since then another site also started doing wrap-ups and we see no need for all this double work in a relatively small fandom. We do not want to just duplicate things and this will, therefore, be our last weekly wrap for the time being – Until we find a different way to keep you entertained with the latest news and keep the discussions going.

A matter that also disheartened us during this past week, is that some people are determined to suck the life out of being a fan and having fun on social media. A ‘photographer’ who has been hanging around the set for the past 2 seasons, whose pictures everybody have been sharing for a long time already, got his tail in a twist because people have been sharing his pictures and using them in videos, without giving him credit. Trust me we can sympathize with him, because we know the feeling. He subsequently locked his Twitter account and only direct followers can see his pictures. He, however, forgot, that now those few who do have access there, can post his pictures (with seemingly full credit to him) and everybody can see it, but none of the links to his pages works for those who do not follow him. Clever dear man – Cut off your nose to spite your face? Now others actually get the credit for his hard work – even if they ‘share’ where that they got it from him? And in my experience, in a few weeks from now, those random set pictures will be old news and nobody will even bother about them anymore.


I also need to add to that, that even after promoting this person’s pages (specifically mentioning him in last week’s post) and sharing the links to his pictures and videos, he decided to block us for some reason. Most probably because we did not try to suck up to him or something – sorry, but we are not in the ass-kissing business. Neither do we care to share pictures shared exclusively to specific sites or from accounts that are locked.

We all are here to have some fun with Alex as fans and unnecessary pettiness of exclusivity only spoils the fun. We honestly want no part in that. Thank you to those who share their pictures freely with other fans. Only a few people are ever that lucky to find the opportunity to get close to Alex. And we appreciate every single one of you who are willing to share those few precious moments with the rest of us.

So let’s get on with the business of having fun with Alex …..

Hawaii Five-0 News for the week:

  • The major Hawaii Five-0 news for the week was the announcement if the new cast members and the promotion some of the local cast got on the show.

Hawaii Five-0″ announces 3 new cast members:CBS says Ian Anthony Dale, Meaghan Rath and Beulah Koale are set to join the cast of “Hawaii Five-0” with its eighth season; Daniel Dae Kim and Grace Park recently left the police drama.

Dale has had a recurring role on “Hawaii Five-0” as Adam Noshimuri since season two; he will be recruited by Five-0 head Steve McGarrett to work on the team. This summer, he is starring in CBS’ suspense thriller “Salvation.”

Rath will play Tani Rey, who is recruited from her job as a lifeguard at a hotel pool. The actress starred in the series “Being Human” and “Cooper Barrett’s Guide to Surviving Life.”

Koale will play Junior Reigns, a former NAVY Seal who just returned from serving and is looking for a new job. He appears in the forthcoming feature “Thank You for Your Service.”

Continuing “Hawaii Five-0″ cast members include Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Chi McBride and Jorge Garcia. The new season begins Sept. 29.

And from Star-Advertiser and Wendie from Five-0 Redux

Hawaii actors Chun, Wily, Balmilero join main ‘Five-0’ castFans may have missed the fact that along with Alex O’Loughlin, Scott Caan, Chi McBride and Jorge Garcia, recurring cast members Taylor Wily, Kimee Balmilero and Dennis Chun were also listed in the announcement as starring cast members. That means that along with Dale, the three have been elevated to series regulars.

Congratulations to them all!

    I only came on last month in June and I can’t tell you what a joy it has been to blog with other AOLers and receive all the great pics and info on him! I had no idea what you guys have to go through getting all this great AOL info to us!! I’m sorry you had to go through changes with self rightous idiots!! 😠 I will wait to hear from you whenever and I hope it will be sooner than later!!!😊
    By the way, these were awesome pics you sent…..truly awesome!!!!😍😍 Seeing Alex looking great, as usual, did my heart good!!💞
    Thank you FOYeur and Paula and those others who share and contribute in good heartedness!!😚


    • It is normally not a hard job to get information and it is mostly a lot of fun. We will always be here and whenever something really interesting happens around Alex, we will definitely report on it and add our opnion.
      And we still have lots of fun facts about Alex that we would like to share. 🙂

    Sorry to hear that you will no longer be doing the weekly wrap ups. No one does them as well as you guys do. Just wanted to let you know I have not posted in ages but I still LOVE your posts. And I will continue enjoying everything you do decide to post. Thanks, loyal Alex fans.

    Y’all run an awesome site and I very much appreciate your respect, as well as research and fangirling of Alex. ❤ I, too, still mourn many of the now defunct Alex sites. I'm delighted y'all are remaining in the game.

    Your weekly wrap-ups are da bomb. But I get they're also time consuming. So thank you for having filled the void for awhile with YOUR very own VOE. 😉

        Now I will get serious, and I try not to do that too often.

        There are leaders and there are followers in every group. The best leaders let everyone have their say and then lets them have a rational discussion based on the merits of all the arguments. That is what you do on this site and Sam does on Mostly. I applaud the loyal opposition who disagrees with the majority in a reasoned and respectful manner. Unfortunately, some “so called” leaders in this very tiny fandom are just loudmouth bullies (and I am not naming names) who have some of their followers terrorized into into silence. They are given the official “script’ with a list of opinions to which they must agree or be publicly chastised (read that as blocked) . I refer to these people as the Junior High mean girls who are allowed to sit at the table of the head bitch as long as they torment the agreed upon victims. The head bitch was never the most popular, never the nicest, never the smartest, never the prettiest or most talented. But she rules over the members of her coven by fear and intimidation. She does know how to do one thing better than most. And that is ass kissing. Too bad for her that the “ass kissee” doesn’t give a damn what she thinks.

  7. Thank you FOYeur and Paula for running such a loyal and wonderfully entertaining site for us Alex fans to get up to date info, pics and gifs. I’ll miss your “weekly wrap up” but I understand the extra hard work it puts on you two just maintaining this blog every day. ((HUGS))

    It’s sad how those with pics have a hard time sharing or somehow feel entitled to “Alex’s” image. You have always done the right thing by giving credit where due for found photos, so it breaks my heart that you would be deliberately excluded from access to this “photog’s” Twitter pics. *humph*

    It’s heartbreaking seeing sites come and go for various reasons over the years. I’ve been a member of many and a moderator of a few. Being a fan of Alex is a wonderful “Thrill ride that (I hope) never ends” ♥ Wherever he goes, I will happily follow him to the ends of the earth and back again with the help of sites like this. ♥
    Please keep blogging cause we truly do appreciate everything you do to give us a safe place to FanGirl over our man. *MUAH*

    I’ll miss the weekly wrap up, too. If people don’t want their pictures to be shared on the web, then don’t post them to the web, Duh!
    On a lighter note, it looks like we may see Steve in jeans again. ♥ Yea!

    • It is more a thing of people wanting credit when pictures are shared – And I fully understand it. Fact is, that the minute you post something on social media, you loose all control over it and you can’t really lay claim to it anymore.
      I can understand when proffesional photographers who make a living from it will be upset about their product being used without credit of payment. But if you do something like a hobby, as we also do here, one need to realise that nobody will “pay” you for your time spend on stuff. Either you want to do it for your own entertainment or not. Receiving credit from all those who share won’t change anything – there is still no payment in it. And like all news, tomorrow it is old news.
      We also just want to get back to doing fun stuff and not worry too much about the politics around the show and the twitter police dictating who are worthy fans and who not.

      Hope to see Steve wear some fun stuff as well 😛

    I only discovered this fabulous site 2 weeks ago and I already love it so much, because it is centered on fun. There are no big egos here, shouting over everyone else (unlike other sites in other fandoms I’ve been to over the years). You all seem so lovely, and united in your love & support of Alex – it’s a joy to visit here.

    Keep doing what you’re doing with the posts, pics, gifs etc. It’s nice to find other fangirls of the amazing Alex out there.

    • Hi Jai-Jai
      For us it is all about having fun with Alex.
      I guess you haven’t read all the posts and comments yet. Not always so tranguil.
      Most of the time we let everybody have their say. Although I guess there will be a few that will say that I pick on them of that I might have an ego. 😀
      In any case – Hope you continue to enjoy Alex here it us – that is our main aim


      • Jai-Jai

        FOYuer, I’m slowly working my way through every post and comment – there have been some interesting ones so far. I do love a good discussion from all sides – I love hearing other people’s points of view, especially when they make a good point that I hadn’t thought of and it makes me stop and think. I’ve always been intrigued by the way people think.

        I’ve seen no signs of you picking on anyone nor having an ego in what I’ve read so far. All of your thoughts are well thought out, rational, fact-based as much as possible (and more or less what I would have said, BTW). Genuinely open discussion and debate is an art and unfortunately not everyone is good at it.

        As for enjoying Alex, he makes that part easy by just being him; grounded, humble, genuine, sensitive, capable of such depth while also bringing humor and fun to everything. And being totally jaw-droppingly gorgeous definitely doesn’t hurt either! I could drown in those eyes of his quite happily *sigh*.

        I’ll be sticking around for a while, I love it here ♥


  13. This is a sad day to see the weekly wrap-up go. But I fully understand your decision and want to thank you for your hard work.
    So, you are blocked too, huh? Guess I’m in good company then. LOL
    Honestly, the Five-0 fandom and keeping up a site or even taking a look at twitter is no fun these days. I try to stay away from all the hatred and pettiness that a lot of those people have become. Not a lot of Aloha spirit there that they are spreading.
    I hope you will find a way to keep the fun up for yourself, and spoil us with more posts about Alex.
    Thanks again for all the time you have invested and hopefully will in the future.

    • I actually liked doing the wrap-ups, because it also kept me up to date of what was going on around Alex. Always felt like we added some extra value to it. But I also think lots of fans just want the stuff, without an opinion or trivia added to it.
      Can’t believe you also got blocked. What did you do? It all just doesn’t make sense to me. It is as if somebody whispered in his ear that we are evil or something – makes me wonder?
      There are actually still a few old interesting inteviews that I need to transcribe. And some other posts (studies) that’s been unfinished in draft for a long time already. Maybe I will get back to finishing them all.

        Just posting the newest pictures like it’s a race who does it first is just boring and I have no interest in that.
        What I love about your posts is that they are unique, refreshing, fun and written with the love for Alex shining through.

          We will still be here, enjoying Alex
          Thanks for your kind words.

              • mamayorkie

                You hold him down and Paula snaps the picture? You could always ask for volunteers to assist. (you also risk arrest)


        • Thought again about this – neither of us had any direct contact with him or shared uncredited tweet of his pictures. Why target us to be blocked? Really makes me wonder?


          • mamayorkie

            If he is on twitter and you are blocked, then do you know anyone is still unblocked who will respectfully ask him directly why you were singled out? Worth a shot.


            • LOL
              I am just building a case for conspiracy theory. Not really interested in his pictures anymore. His pictures are now all marked with ugly big watermarks right across everybody on the picture. I really do not see what all the fuss is about. He is not making money from the pictures. Why bother? If it was pretty pictures of Hawaii, then my all means. Or special pictures (like the tattoo ;grin: ) But it is just for interest of how they look on set while working, Just a few fans will be interested in it. In other words – I do not really care if I see them of not. We have thousands of beautiful pictures of Alex.

                I see the photos. They look ridiculous! The big huge watermark right in the middle of the photos just ruins them. You focus on the watermark rather than what’s in the photo. Put them down to the side, off to the left or right, so people can still SEE the photo. This person’s been providing wonderful photos and videos for years. What the heck happened to him?

    FOYeur and Paula, this is one of the most beautiful sites I’ve ever seen on the Internet dedicated to an actor. I wish Alex could visit it to see all the work the two of you have done in his honor over the years. I think he’d be astonished by the volume of information and articles you’ve gathered on him. He’d have fun reading his old interviews, because it’s actually an archival history of how his life, career and personal hopes, dreams and attitudes have evolved over the years, as he’s grown older and had new life experiences.

    Your site is filled with amazing photos, videos, interviews, information, history, archives, great weekly episode reviews, and the nicest and most fun group of people I’ve met anywhere on the internet. People are kind and respectful to each other here, because the two of you set the tone of the site. We can disagree with each other, but we do so respectfully. It’s a really fun place to visit. It’s in my favorites list and I click here several times a day to see what’s up, your newest post, what everyone has to say, and just to try to keep up with everything Alex.

    Thank you for the incredible amount of love, devotion, time, energy, talent, creativity and just plain hard work both of you have put into the site. I can survive without the weekly updates, if it gives both of you more time, energy and freedom to do other things.

    Thank you so much. Hopefully we’ll be able to come here and enjoy Alex for a while longer. I personally love your episode analyses. So funny! They always make me chuckle.

      We are not really a very professional set up site, like most others are. But for us it is about the fun and the companionship from the start.
      Not sure if I will still do the episode posts – the Koala Smartass ran away and without him it is no fun at all. But we will see, once the new season starts he might crawl back again for some serious insight. :lol:.

        Oh no! We lost Koala Smartass? lol, I love that name, too. Something tells me Alex would like it too! Well, maybe WE the posters to the site can try to analyze the episodes ourselves. That should be FUN! Pistols at 50 paces!

I visit sites to read (all of yours) but I don’t post anywhere. The Internet brings out the worst in a lot of people. Even the comments sections on articles–they start out OK and then people start bashing each other. It’s all a gigantic waste of time. Alex and Scott are very smart to stay off social media.

  21. So no more weekly wrap-ups? It’s sad news for me because it was the way to see new pics (and old new pics) and to know what has happened to Alex about his work. Nowadays, i only visit your site and Mostly H50. Yes, i also miss other sites. That’s why AOL-IS has an very important mission – continue to bring fun to all Alex fans, with Paula’s talent with pics and gifs and Foyeur’s hard work with all intense studies. This site always was, is and will be to have fun fangirling about Alex. And with respect about everyone.That’s why we are here. And if people don’t understand this view of making a site or don’t want to share information, videos and pics that always AOL-IS gave credits, we can’t agree but respect their choices. Sadly in H50 fandom some have a distorted view about RESPECT. I always said that we can love the same things for different motives and it’s ok.
    My RL doesn’t allow me to comment as often as in the past but i’m here since the beginning and i assure you that i stay here with you as long you want to share with us the fun of fangirling about AOL.

      As you can see above, your comment was here, but it landed in spam for some weird reason.
      No worries about not commenting. I know how things get with real life. As long as we still put a smile on your face, it is all good. 🙂

    I’ll definitely miss this, especially with your commentary, but I definitely understand. I often wonder how you both manage to keep all of this up. It has to be a lot of work. Just know I appreciate it and I’ve also gotten to see articles that I never knew existed. Thank you for all you do!!

      We started it all when we both had lots of time to be online.
      Because of circumstances I needed a hobby that I could do on a computer – and Alex became my hobby. 🙂

    So sad to see your weekly wrap ups go but glad that you’re not shutting down and I’m looking forward to what you will continue to post for us.

  26. Hate that you will not continue as it is time consuming. Wishing you the best. Take care my friend!

    Goodness, I had not known there was so much drama to be had! Ya’lls was the only wrap up i had ever seen, but I linked to the other big one randomly from twitter. From your post, I did not get the idea of jealousy or anger toward them, but evidently some of their followers did. Ya’ll just expressed the frustration from fans losing out on what is just supposed to be fun because people won’t give credit where it is due. Anyway, I prefer this site to others i have read – it seems more complete and more well put together. As well, it is completely comprehensive about our beloved Alex! Thanks for all the work ya’ll put into this.

      Yes, clearly people read things in this post that was never written into it. Weird. 😕
      Two different non-related matters that were address, seemed to be muddled together and misconstrued. I kind of found it amusing.
