Stunts with a clear head ….. #H50

Have had this quote in a draft since February already when I saved it with some other quotes that we have already posted before. Never really knew how I would use it, but thought it might be good to leave it with you guys today. The rest of the story does not affect Alex as a person directly, but it is closely related to him, his work, his character and his colleagues.

Talking about stunts:

“If your head is clear, you’ve got the best shot at not dying.”

This is the video where the quote is from (at around 3 min), and 6 years down the line lots of water under the bridge …..

 …… then this news broke today on Deadline Hollywood:

‘Hawaii Five-O’ Stunt Double Sues CBS & Others After Being Hit By Car During Filming

A stunt double for Alex O’Loughlin’s Steve McGarrett character on Hawaii Five-O is suing CBS Corp., CBS Studios and a number of production companies over an on-set accident in which he was hit by a car. Among the allegations is that a key stunt “personnel who had safety responsibilities” was under the influence of pain pills at the time of the incident.

  • In July 2016, Hawaii News Now ran a short story about the incident, but it did not say much. Nobody mentioned it again and fans  never took it too seriously. The accident happened on the set while filming stunts for Episode 7:03 on 27 July 2016.
  • The story was also reported by Star Advertiser at the time: Five-0’ crew member injured on location in Kakaako
  • The rest of the article and the rest of the story and the case can be followed via the links in the original story.

My thoughts:

  •  Maybe the lesson we can all learn from this – don’t ignore problems. Deal with them before they get out of hand …
  • Interesting to see what some of the parties involved, had to say on the clip 6 years ago.

Please remember this is not fiction and it is about real people and their jobs. There are two side to every situation. Would be good to remember that when you try to comment on this.

From our side we hope that this sad situation will have a fair ending for all parties involved and that those suffering will receive the correct help for complete recovery.

#AlexOLoughlin – #H50 #Watch! – Transcript of Interview

CBS Watch! Magazine posted a short clip of part of the interview they did with Alex O’Loughlin for their next two monthly issue of the magazine for June/July 2017.

Although I am excited and very grateful that they posted it, why they have to post regionally restricted clips of an interview is beyond me. Alex is an internationally known actor with many fans from around the world. This is not just about the show. It is about Alex.

Sorry for the rant, but here is a transcript of it.

How Hawaii Inspires H50’s Alex O’Loughlin
 

AlexThe inspiration that Hawaii provides for me?

Well this has been my home for about 7 years now. And …. I’m married to a local girl, I got local kids. I’m blessed in. I’ve got a name∗.

It’s deeply entrenched in … in who I am now.

You know, I don’t think I’m ever going to leave.

( In a tweet from Alex’s in 2013, he said that his local name is Kekau)

Saxon, Spike, Alex and Malia at a birthday party for Egan’s son, back in May 2013.

Alex: I mean, obviously it’s beautiful. Like you look around and it is like, “Wow it’s really beautiful!”

But there’s … there’s an energy in the land here; they actually have a name for it. It’s calledMana”. And it’s like the power of the Aina”; of the land.

Alex: And I don’t always feel it ….. Or I’m not always aware of it, because I get very busy 10 months of the year, frantically shooting, and trying to remember things. And trying not to get caught up in politics, you know.

But then when I stop, mainly in the off seasons, I can go somewhere quiet, like this, and … and sort of tap back into it.

And that’s what inspires me out here.

Alex: It’s … This place is very special.

It’s a very special part of the world.

Just an update.

Hi everybody. There is a lot to show about the last episodes, but we have so much time during the hiatus to discuss things. Real life is keeping us a bit busy at the moment, but we will try to have our photo recaps of the last two episodes up somewhere during the week – Hopefully. 🙂

Steve - Episode 6:25

At least we got one new recent picture of Alex this week.

Thank you Enson, we knew you would help the “starving” fangirls with some fresh footage.

Life around #AlexOLoughlin – a week in review (13 – 19 September 2015)

Before we start with this week’s review just some general information from us. After some deliberation, Paula and I have decided to continue with our Steve Story posts when the new season start. They serve as small “reviews” of each Hawaii Five-0 episode and as a post for stills from the episode. And we will try to keep doing it on the Sundays after the actual episode (time permitting). But this means that we will have to move this weekly news posts from next week on, to Mondays (also time permitting). We would like to try and do both of these weekly features, if our readers like them and there are enough interest in them. If it does not work – we will find the Alex-fun in some other way. 😀

Spoiler alert: Some pictures from the set might be regarded as spoiler – although no major story lines are given away …..

Life on the Set:

  Every has a killer in her. A woman who owns it will love and protect you with that same ferocity. On Set - 607
    .. about as good as we got

Lulu Morr  I had the most wonderful time in my life 🙂 thank you to Alex for being so humble and friendly.

 Alex at Events:

Kinda funny that I got almost the EXACT same picture with Alex O’Loughlin 3 years apart! #pregnant I really appreciate (1) his genuine enthusiasm (2) that he even noticed (3) his genuine well wishes – such a sweet guy! Random fact – As a teenager / surfer girl, I idolized his wife #MaliaJones growing up 🙂 #alexoloughlin #HawaiiFive0 #h50 #sunsetonthebeach #sotb #oahu #honolulu #waikiki #celebrityinterviews #workhardplayhard #29weeks #32weeks #TBT #MauiNow #BigIslandNow Hawaii Five-0

 News for the week:

  • CBS Shocker: Nina Tassler Stepping Down as Entertainment Chairmanarticle

  • Some of you might remember we rehashed an old story a few months ago about romance novelist, Jackie Collins, and her adoration for Alex – The tall good looking one on ‘Hawaii Five–0′ …... It seems that very lady like, she chose to keep her struggle of the past 7 years with breast cancer, very private and most people were shocked to hear about her passing away on Saturday.

I want  to echo this Tweet:

  not sure I ever read a book but she had good taste in men. Condolences to her family
Jackie Collins Tweet from 2012

Something pretty from other fans:

Apart from lots of SOTB (that start to all look the same after a while), I am sad to say I did not see any exceptionally ‘new’ pretty picture captures of Alex, by other fans this week that wow’d me. *cry*

Some fandom laughs for the week:rotfl:

While Alex and co-star Sarah Carter were struggling in the jungle and at sea it seems …. some of the others were amusing themselves on set. One can not help but laughing with them, when you see this. (Click on Daniel’s name to see the clip)

And here is the link to the clip on the phone, that they were watching and laughing about: Bugs Bunny

Alex & Friends/Family:

  • Some of you might have been wondering about it, but as we suspected would happen, Alex did not attend this years’  ALS walk on Saturday. His in-law’s did take part as part of their ALS Ohana group. Here is a picture of them, posted by

ALS Ohana

(Some of you might recognise the guy on the right, as the person sitting next to Alex at SOTB. It is Malia’s brother, Daniel Jones. Mentioning it, because I saw some fans asking who he was, after seeing pictures of SOTB)

The words of a fangirl:

 Oops
 eek

Some Trivia for the week:

  • The “perks” of life on the set of an action show …..
sarah_carter_oxox It’s not always glamorous. #H50#behindthescenes
sarah_carter_oxox When your office is the middle of the ocean… #H50#behindthescenes

My Pet Peeves: :drama:

  • Someone making a general comment/ statement / declaration on one type of social media (like Twitter) about stuff that happens on a different part of social media (like Instagram). It leaves people confused and pisses them off, because not everybody follows all forms of social media. It might be better (for all who are also annoyed by that person as well), to address the guilty party head-on and direct, and not insult a whole group of fans as a whole. *dontknow*

(Much like you might feel about this comment from me, if you don’t know what I am talking about https://i0.wp.com/www.myemoticons.com/emoticons/images/msn/moods/question.gif )

Most ‘interesting’ search for the week:

  • scott caan interview relax stop trying to kill alex

lol!

Thought (Tweet) for the week:

  • To keep my cool, I have to remind myself constantly that some of the fans (especially on Instagram) are only kids and they act like it. And then there are some older fans, who have the emotional intelligence of teens (especially on #H50 tag on Twitter)

  Next Week:

  • If they work according to schedule, they should be finishing up with filming episode 608 by the end of this week.
  • And of course, the date we all have been waiting for – the start of Season 6 on Friday night 25 September!

Alex O’Loughlin – News Updates

Recently in comments, I realised that some of the fangirls are missing out on news updates about Alex, because we do not share it here on the blog. Lots of people did not know about the ‘T-shirt picture competition’ that we reported on a while back, or the Taylor Blue nail polish sale that we reported on this week.

Up until now we mainly posted breaking news on our Twitter or Facebook pages, but some people do not use those types of social media. Amongst all the different posts and clutter on those mediums, news can also easily get lost, if you do not stay online 24/7. 😕

Paula and I discussed it and we thought that we will try to make short posts about breaking news of events, pictures and things around Alex, as it becomes available. We do not want to clutter the blog with too much stuff, but we will select the stories that we feel are good enough to share. 😀

Please give us feedback and how you feel about it. And thank you in advance for people making us aware of the new stuff and breaking news surrounding Alex.

*******

For our first News Update, we will report back on yesterday’s main news surrounding Alex

We received a tip from Loulou yesterday, that ‘DNA Specialty INC‘ posted a picture of Alex and a motorbike on their Facebook page

DNA Specialty INC: Alex O’Loughlin ( Steve McGarrett Hawaii Five-O) with 2014 Deluxe, Mammoth spoke rims, rotors and pulley

16 June 2014

DNA Specialty INC is in LA, so my first thought was that this was taken in LA when Alex was there a week or two ago, but the ‘www. HawaiiHarley’ on the vehicle behind him, lead us on a different path. On investigating the surrounding area on the picture, it was confirmed to us, that it was indeed taken in Hawaii.  We also could see that it was taken at ‘Cycle City’ where Alex reportedly bought his new bike last month.

Another confusing fact from the photo, was the that this bike looked different to the one we saw on last months picture, when the sales person (Rippin Ronnie) posted his proud sale to Alex on his Facebook page

8 May 2014 Rippin Ronnie

Ronnie: Congrats to Alex, you guys might know him, on the purchase of his new 2014 Harley-Davidson Deluxe.

We asked DNA Specialty INC  and they confirmed that they did some modifications on the bike for Alex:

DNA Specialty INC: this is his bike with our custom wheels and other accessories.

Furthermore I have seen many comments that this must be the replacement bike, for what Alex lost in the fire in his garage, on 6 January 2014  – our story: Alex O’Loughlin – Sometimes we lose things ……… some precious, some not!

From all evidence that I could see, Alex did NOT lose any of his bigger custom-made bikes in the fire. On the pictures of the burned garage, there were only the remains of the motocross bikes and some bicycles and kiddies bikes visible (and maybe some other smaller motorbike at the back). ‘Cro Customs also sent out a message on Instagram that his latest custom-made purchase ‘Yang Yang’ ( bought in October 2012), was not at his home at the time, but was on tour as a display item.

crocustoms : Damn!!! Alex’s garage went up in flames Monday. So glad no one was hurt. Yang could have been up in flames too, but thankfully it wasn’t home
6 January 2014 - Fire

And if some of you were wondering about Alex’s other custom built bike, which he bought in 2009 –  Cro Customs reported on 24 September 2012: ‘Alex O’s Sporty 1200 Chop SOLD’

We want to wish Alex many happy hours and trips with his latest (very expensive) toy. He has been riding motorbikes since his teens and we know it is one of his greatest joys. ❤

If we have time, we will try our best to give you as much background information on any news item we cover. If you have any further questions, please ask and we will try our best to follow the story as far as we can….. 🙂

*****

PS. And on a more negative, but hopefully a positive note.

What pisses me off greatly, is people’s ‘Entitlement of Rudeness’ on social media. If you don’t like something, say it nicely OR rather ignore it. If you like something associate yourself with it and enjoy it!

Don’t ‘fuck up’ the next person’s peaceful day and enjoyment, by making rude remarks towards them. It will really not enrich you life or mean anything positive to them ……..(for example: If you don’t like Alex’s beard, you are entitled to your opinion and to say it, but don’t be rude about it or entitle yourself to demands about it)

Let us rather be part of the next person’s enjoyment of fandom-life and it will create our own fun as well!
