To The ‘Mothers’ of the #AlexOLoughlin Fandom.

Events of this past week and celebrating Mothers day today, sparked my thoughts to complete this post that I have been contemplating of for a while ….

It is a Thank You post to the “Mothers” of the Alex fandom, of which we are also a small part of.

The “Mothers” I am thinking of, are those who came before – The mothers who nurtured Alex’s fans when his stardom was still in infancy. Specifically those sites where I got my first glimpses of who Alex is, from. People like Mary who ran Adoring Alex O’Loughlin. Org for many years, and Tiffany at AOLO, and of course Mizzoh with her wonderful informative site, AOLR – all with a lot of respect for Alex and fellow fans.

And there are many others, like Titine from Addicted to Alex O’Loughlin, Kandyegirl of Alex O’Loughlin Blog.spot, Pam & Carol of Olaughingpress.org and Alyssa of Alex O’Loughlin ‘s Place. Also the ladies from the McPerv’s site, Silvia of Alex O’Loughlin Journal, and many other names like Terry and Mymaximus, who so generously shared wonderful pictures. All contributing in sharing and preserving information, for those who wanted to know more about Alex and his career in those early days. 

Of course there are those fandom “Mothers” who are still around, like the ladies from LLOL, and those from Facebook pages like Jill and the team at Gorgeous O’Loughlin. And those from the German sites, like Alex O’Loughlin International Community and Mostly Five-0.

But we can’t miss out on some who also had a more lasting influence on us, like ESS from H50BAMF and later together with her, the other ladies on AOLwww. And together with them a whole bunch of intelligent and funny ladies in that community.

There are many other countless ladies from fan pages on various forms of social media, who in their own way also contributed over the years. We might not know you by name or association, but we know you are there and we catch glimpses of your dedication.

A Great big THANK YOU to you all.

This week, my thank you comes from a place of missing so many of you these days.

During this past week there has been a bombardment on us from those who do not respect the boundaries of being a fan of Alex, and lack of respect for his colleagues and their careers and the dynamic amongst them and their private lives. Those who want to force their personal opinions, formed by hearsay, onto others. Opinions, about interpersonal relationships of people on set, that has been obtained through secondhand gossip and in some cases fed by pure hatred.

We as fans have no business in the private lives and personal opinions of celebrities and their workplace. And to think we know them in any way at all, as private people, is not part of our world of fandom. We are here to enjoy their work and who they are.

Most of these vile comments by the group of individuals were deleted from our Instagram, but you can still catch some of their idiocracy and slurs towards us on our Twitter timeline. And maybe some of you also caught parts of it on some Facebook groups. 

We know who we are and what we stand for. And I reject their onslaught with the disdain it deserves.

Getting back to the spirit of this post

Most of all, Thank You to the wonderful women that are here (on also on our IG, FB and Twitter pages) – even during these quiet times. Reading and  contributing with your comments and fun approach to it and your mutual adoration of Alex – it is pure joy.

We appreciate you all!

And of course there are a few people who assist and support us behind the scenes – gathering and sourcing old and new information. We appreciate you more than you will ever know!

#AlexOLoughlin and the #H50 Turkey App

 

We decided to have fun with old memories from Hawaii Five-0 and some pictures we have never posted before.

These behind the scenes pictures were taken on 15 October 2013, while they were filming Episode 4:09

– the Thanksgiving episode when we met Aunt Deb for the first time.

  • First the clip of how it was used in the beginning of that episode:

 

And now for the pictures on set ….

And here are pictures taken will shooting the clip which we posted:

  • Michelle posted some information about that scene at a later stage: 

Fun fact: This was not planned…..Nobody expected that I could actually catch a football, Scott was especially excited and gave me a victory lap 🙂 #BTS #H50

And of course Alex looked as gorgeous as ever throwing that ball around….

I want to end off today’s post with something a bit different and not from Alex.

It is a quote from a recent speech at the Oscars. 

  • From Tyler Perry’s speech when accepting the Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award for his work feeding and helping others during the pandemic

 Stand in the middle ’cause that’s where healing happens. That’s where conversation happens. That’s where change happens. It happens in the middle.

So anyone who wants to meet me in the middle, to refuse hate, to refuse blanket judgment, and to help lift someone’s feet off the ground, this one is for you too.

Hope you also enjoyed our fun trip down memory lane …

#AlexOLoughlin and His Hawaiian Name

Over the years we have had a number of discussions about Alex’s Hawaiian name.

We first heard that it was Kekau, when Alex revealed it while he was live tweeting on the CBS account for Episode 4:01.

Until today we have not really been able to find a meaning for the name Kekau. And therefore there has been some feeling that Alex might have made a typo when he originally tweeted the name back in 2013.

My thought has always been that a typo can be possible, but that Alex is normally very accurate with things like names. I therefore doubt that a mistake was made. And unless Alex ever says that he typed incorrectly, I will believe what was said by him and will take the name Kekau as the correct one.

 Lucky for us, this is what a busy little Bee found today on a site called NamesLook.

Of course we are not sure where they get all the information from, to update the site and how accurate it is, but this is what they had to say:

Meaning of Kekau: 

Clever, Great Mankind, Strengthful

  • Clever is easy to understand and although Strengthful is a weird word for me, it seems to mean Strong.  But I am not sure what is meant by Great Mankind ?

Only Alex and the Kahuna who named him when he was blessed into Hawaii, will know if this is also the meaning of what they had in mind when they named him Kekau.

Maybe one day he will actually share that information with us all.

  • On the NamesLook site they also go on to say that the numerology of the name Kekau is 4 and then explains what that means.

 I guess we all find what we want, in what they say in these type of descriptions. But whether one believes in such things or not, I actually found this description very interesting …..

Kekau name Numerology

Numerology (Expression Number)    4

Heart’s Desire number                       9

Personality number                            4

  • Talent analysis of Kekau by expression number 4

“You are the bedrock of society, the foundation of any enterprise. You are an organizer and manager. Your approach to life and to problems is methodical and systematic. You are a builder and a doer. You turn dreams into reality. You possess a highly developed sense of structure. You enjoy management systems, and can carry out your well laid plans. You are not the type to embark on any trip without a map.”

  • Inner analysis of Kekau by heart number 9

“You want to be of service to the world. Your deepest satisfaction comes from knowing that you have advanced the cause of humanity. Your ideals are of the highest order. You are a perfectionist. You strive to make the world a utopia; to make each person’s lot in life better; to become perfect yourself. One of your challenges in life is to strive toward your lofty goals and at the same time recognize the good you are doing.”

  • Personality analysis of Kekau by personality number 4

“You radiate reliability and consistency. People trust you and feel secure with your judgment. You are seen as a cornerstone of a business and are relied upon to do your work efficiently and expertly. You have strength and respectability. You tend to dress in a utilitarian manner, concerned mostly with convention, practicality, durability, and price. You present yourself as someone who values correctness, control, and precision.”

Maybe some of the things mentioned here, can be compared to things said in interviews with Alex, and also in the words of what others have to say about him. What do you think?

And just for interest sake I also looked up my own name on the site as well, and it was kind of spot on for how I feel about myself. Of course I looked at the names Alex and Alexander and found the analysis of those two names also interesting.

But remember, this is all just for fun and not to be taken as gospel.

Remember being a fan is about having some fun with other fans. It is not about taking yourself, other fans or your subject of adoration too seriously.

Relax and enjoy the ride, even if it is with some rose tinted glasses along the way …….
