Follow our fellow's life as friendship & family are festered with fears, and then reformed by unfettered feeling. My biggest project, and I couldn't have done it without my family, Allegra & Marcy, and Zoë, Cam, Lottie, Angelica, Jack, Adam, Eileen, Leena, Rachael, Athrylis, Gemma, Josh, & Marie. And of course, the enigmatic forces that started it all. Groove on.

Skye Hawaii

Skye frolics through and delves into in ev'ry metaphorical acre of the expansive, fruitful meadow of the creative arts. He's an amateur author, actor, artist, comedian, composer, film-maker, musician, playwright, singer-songwriter, and just plain ol' writer. He also likes drumming out rhythms on his thighs.

He doesn't really know what he's doing, but, needless to say, he's doing a lot of it.

Cam: [Trombone ad infinitum.]
 
Rey' & Skye Archival Footage: Took a step into the elevator who said, "Guess I'll see you later, don't you worry."
 
[elevator noises from "I'm Superman" & ding noise feat. Athrylis' dress]
 
Skye: "Don't you worry..."
Fifteen flights that lasted nights and days that spent without a cent for creatures with their beat shirts.

Rey' & Skye Archival Footage: (Light on top forgot--)

Zoë: One fine day, love came for me.
And love was rare.
Why can't we see?
 
Skye: Next, the stranded senate of the white brick house with flowers asked some questions for their story.

Lonely paperbacks that wanted just a taste of feeling to implode them before living

Skye: Wait a minute, that was ME in your group, are you telling me that I messed you up?
 
Leena: Uh, yeah, why are you making it all about you?
 
Skye: So really what you’re saying is that the only time you failed at something, it was my fault.
 
Leena: Well yeah, it IS your fault. You’re just going to have to deal with it, you jerk.
 
Skye: It's not my fault when people can’t appreciate me.
 
Leena: You can’t say that! You have no idea how hard my life is!
 
Skye: You’re right, I don’t, and I’m sorry, I’m so, so sorry!
I will never be able to understand how hard your life is, and I wish I could, because you deserve that.
 
Miscellaneous T[ally Hall]: Trust in that with which-- we share--

Track Name: Taken for a Ride Debut on THPH
Allegra: Hel-LO, and welcome back to the Tally Hall Power Hour--we just heard Variations on a Cloud... from... ミラクルミュージカル's Hawaii: Part II album which came out in 2012. If everything is working right now, we should be able to hear a phone call coming through-- Skye, are you there?

Skye: *unhearable*

Allegra: AAH, hold on, the phone's not working. Un momento, por favor.
*farther away* Let's see if I can get this going.

Skye: *laughing, unhearably*

Allegra: Hello?

Skye: *still almost unhearably* Guys, where's Colonel Popcorn?!

Allegra: AAH, one second.
*farther away* This'll, yeah... let's see.

Skye: *still almost unhearably* Ahh, two hours of finagling with technology~

Allegra: All right, uhh... you comin' through?

*phone lag*

Skye: I don't know, am I?

Allegra: All right, I think you're coming through!

Skye: FanTAStic!

Allegra: All right, hey, I'm--

Skye: Okay, so I guess this is pretty well-timed since we were just listening to the album, uh, Hawaii: Part II, and, uh... a lot of, uh-- THINGS have come to light since then, and I-- I recently found out about this, uh, HIDDEN, uh, set of pictures--

Allegra: Uh huh?

Skye: -- of a Starbucks in...

Allegra: Uh huh?

Skye: Honolulu, which is actually where I live.

Allegra: Yeah!

Skye: Um, I--I have never gone there before?

Allegra: Uh huh?

Skye: Um, I--I don't know, uh, Joe--JOE has a way of... uh, thinking things through very deliberately.

Allegra: RIGHT.

Skye: So I FEEL like somebody needs to go there, whether or not there's anything there.

Allegra: Right, I know--I KNOW what the...

Skye: I would like to ask people... um--

Allegra: Wait, I, wait--

Skye: -- what they would like me to do... at the Starbucks.

Allegra: *laughing* Wait, okay, here's the thing. I know that in the, uh, Hawaii: Part II emails... that get sent out sometimes-- at the very bottom of the, uh, e-mail listing, like, the MailChimp thing? Like, they make you put an address when you sign up for these e-mail services. At the very bottom, there's an address, and that goes right to the Starbucks, which I think is the same one you're talking about. I would say DEFINITELY--

Skye: Yes.

Allegra: -- go there. That would be-- I don't even know what you would DO there...? Uh... *soft laugh* ... what do you THINK you should do there?

Skye: Well, I was-- I was first thinking that I should probably order something under the name "Stella Octangula", um.

Allegra: Ste-- *laughing* Do you think all the baristas--

Skye: I, I--

Allegra: -- are--are well-versed in--in Hawaii: Part II lore? Just a virtue of working there?

Skye: I, I, I--all I know is that I need to bring the pictures there, and I need to say... you know, that... *laugh*

Allegra: *same laugh*

Skye: Eh, something obscure is going on in your Starbucks, you probably don't even know about it, but-but--

Allegra: Yeah. Yea-ea-eah, so-so-some aboriginal MEMES are occurring.

Skye: Part of me wants to dress up like... like, I'm gonna wear a red tie there and people are gonna stare at me and, like... motion me to the back room or something?

Allegra: Uh huh, yeah! Ah--it'll be like some, maybe just... an induction into some... some strange alternate universe. Um, well, I would say...

Skye: HAUH!

Allegra: You should DO that, and you should also, uh, give a-- actually, later in the show, I'm gonna play your cover that you submitted for the...

Skye: *genuinely shocked* Oh, gee!?

Allegra: ... Tally Hall Anniversary project. I'm really excited, I'm gonna be playing some of the cover. Uh, so stay tuned for that. But, um... *smacks lips* Do you have a song that you want me to play, uh, Tally Hall-wise?

Skye: *laughing, still trying to process the song's going to be played* Um, um, I, I don't really mind one way or another, uh-- you have the best picks in the world, and uh--

Allegra: Oh, thank you so much!

Skye: -- speaking of our covers, I was just talking with Zoë the other day.

Allegra: Uh huh?

Skye: Um, she found something REALLY interesting on the website recently, too, the Hawaii: Part II website. Uh...

Allegra: Oh! What'd she find?

Skye: There's, like, this VERY tiny sub-section on the main page... that... sends you to a search result on Google Maps that only reads, ",". Just...

Allegra: Huh!

Skye: ",".

Allegra: Yeah, I really... I really can't... *voice crackles*... even begin to fathom, uh, what's going on there. But, who knows, I may have the opportunity to ASK soon. But right now--

Skye: *cracks up*

Allegra: Thank you so much, Skye, for calling in. This has been a wonderful conversation, even though I couldn't quite get the phone working. I actually have a microphone up the phone speakerphone right now, if you are curious.

Skye: *Joe alert noise*

Allegra: HuhHA. Um, so right now, I'm gonna spin a request that I got on Tumblr. Uh, this is... Country Good--

Skye: Mm!

Allegra: -- a song written by Rob Cantor for a Cracker Barrel commercial, featuring Tommy Siegel of Jukebox the Ghost on banjo. Enjoy.

Skye: ... Ah~ *cut off*

*later on*

Allegra: Uh, I'm getting too far into this, I'm gonna play another song right now. This is a very special song, I am bringing out the EXCLUSIVES here. What you're about to hear... is a cover... that has not really been heard by many people before-- this is a cover that's gonna be featured... on the Tally Hall Marvin's Marvelous Mechanical Museum 10th Anniversary compilation that I've been putting together for the last few months. This is a cover of Taken for a Ride... by Skye, who called in earlier in the program, if you were... listening. Uh, and it... I-- it... when I listened to it for the first time, it--it blew my mind. It was amazing, and I cannot wait... for you guys to hear it. This is... Taken for a Ride, by Skye, aka HomeStarRunnerTron.

*later on*

Allegra: And you just heard... possibly one of the favorite tracks-- my favorite tracks that I've heard... this year. That was a cover of Tally Hall's Taken for a Ride by Skye, aka HomeStarRunnerTron on YouTube. What a fantastic cover, and thAT JUST GIVES YOU AN IDEA... OOOOOOO--

Track Name: I Was Apparently Taken for a Ride
Very, very often, people do not tell me things that concern me, and so I have to Google™ them. So I decided one day recently to Google "Skye", my name (that is my name), and then "taken for a ride".

I found... that there was... a direct quote from a book... entitled, "The War Hero's Locked Away Heart" by Louisa George (available as e-Book. For $3.99) -- I found, directly quoted in there, the words, "taken for a ride, Skye". In that order. Right next to each other, all those words right next to each other without anything in-be-t-tween. I would like to read off a couple pages of this for you.

"Then he sent the stone spiraling into the air, hitting the far side of the waterfall with a thump.
His hands fisted by his sides as he gulped in air.

When he'd wrestled his breathing back to normal, he took her hand. 'Not all men are like him. He misused his position, took advantage of you. You were taken for a ride, Skye. A long one.'

'And I don't want to talk about him ever again.' Adam was different. A real man, caring, tender. She could love him, perhaps. Given time. Her arms ached with the effort of throwing the rocks but a strange, deep calm wrapped itself around her. Brian's taunts had been exorcised from her brain. She wouldn't let anyone treat her like that again. She deserved better. She deserved the best. 'I feel so much better.'

'Don't ever let anyone treat you like that again, do you hear me? Don't give anything else up--go out and do what you want to do.'

If she knew what that was now. 'Yes, sir.'

The shadows that had flitted across his eyes disappeared and he led her back to the picnic. 'Now you are going to eat. A decent amount.'

Her stomach growled. At the back of her mind the niggling fat mantra ticked, but for the first time in a long time she chose to ignore it. 'Yes. Watch out, there'll be none left for you.'

'I don't care. Just seeing you relaxed and enjoying yourself is good enough for me. Now, there's German salami, French Brie, Italian ciabatta, Greek olives and...'"

Uh.

"'... tzatziki.'"

T-- tchyeeah... tzyatzeekee. *laughing* Tchyeeyacheekee. ... It's Tchyeeyacheekee!! ... *sharp inhale* (Ain't that special, he's got tchyeeyacheekee!? *laugh*)

Okay, okay, I'm--I'm gonna... see what else I can find over here, I'm gonna skip around.

Why is that books that are about girls... finding the perfect man... hardly ever have any good lines for the girls? Like, all... of the lines are dedicated to this--this MAN... dude... guy. I'm looking for a funny line for her to say, but man, she's so MILQUEtoast.

"'You were part of something, had strong ties. Not many people can say they've had such loyal relationships.' She crawled next to him and laid her head against his chest. Flattened her palm over his heart. 'But why...'"

...

"'... a dragonfly?'"

"'... why...'"

"'... a dragonfly?'"

*wheezes*

"His throat caught as her remembered their promises and the hope of those last few days before…the end. 'It symbolises a life of no regrets. Living in the moment.'

'Is that what you do?'

He laughed. Not even remotely. 'It's what I told myself I'd been doing for the last few years. I had no life plan any more, no job, no wife, few friends, and fewer who'd put up with my moods. Flitting fr--'"

-- You see, he's getting a HUGE monologue, he's getting ALL of this text. ... What is she? She just likes FOOD.

Umm, I'm just gonna go back to the beginning of the book, okay, Chapter One:

"'Four. More. Weeks.'"

*incredulously* What?!

"Skye Williams repeated her mantra with every muscle-screaming step on the last five hundred metros of her beach run. In four weeks she would hit Europe a dress size smaller if it killed her. And judging by her raging heart rate and throbbing joints, it probably would. She hated running, but it was a necessary evil.

As she dug deep for the home stretch a westerly wind whipped hot sand across her face with a ferocity that bordered on microdermabra--"

Oo-WHAT?! Microo... ooDEEERMabrasionnn.

Okay, so her first line of dialogue is:

"'Four. More. Weeks. Four. More…'"

And then it's:

"'London. Paris. Athens. Rome.'"

She speaks in nouns.

So dark and mysterious, she's so...
... not dark, not mysterious, not person.

*in Skye Williams voice* I am a person, dut-dut-dut-DAAA-woo~

See? That right there? That was more personality than... is... in the book.
There we go.
... Is a girl.

*in Skye Williams voice* I'm a girl!
