136 – Paranormal Paradise: The Mysteries of Hawaii with Lopaka Kapanui

This week, we bring on Robert Lopaka Kapanui, who we discussed at length in our episode 57 on Haunted Hawaii. Lopaka is a native Hawaiian who runs Mysteries of Hawai’i ghost tours.  He’s a writer, actor, and master storyteller who lives on the island of Oahu.

Lopaka and his Paranormal Paradise

Allison from Milwaukee Ghosts joins us once again as we talk with Lopaka about what brought him into the world of the supernatural and some of his favorite legends, ghost tales, and more from the Mysteries of Hawaii.

Since Lopaka was killed on Hawaii Five-O (the latest version with Jin from LOST!) twice, we thought that maybe that one of the reasons that they cast him is that he looks great dead and must be a convincing victim! So here’s the Sunspot track,  “Good-Looking Corpse”.

I’m so bored that I could die,
but at least I’d leave a good-looking corpse,
of a post-modern poster child.
They say he didn’t feel a thing,
but it didn’t mean a thing.

We’re all looking for a reason,
we’d love to kill ourselves,
like maybe Plath or Hemingway.
I put on my best black turtleneck,
I smoked a dozen cigarettes,
and raised my eyebrows all day.

Gimme drugs.
Gimme sex.
Gimme booze.
Help me forget that there’s nothing new under the sun.
Make me deaf.
Make me dumb.
Anyway to make me numb,
because there’s nothing new under the sun.

Just a glamorous little junkie,
that was a little freak, a little funky.
A good-looking corpse is what I’ll be.
Old rockstars never die, they just OD.
