Hau’oli Makahiki Hou

We have high hopes for big news in 2015, but so far it's a slow burn.  We're used to Ed's annual photo with Bill Maher, who performs annually in Hawaii, and for the last three years at least, has hung with Eddie Vedder to ring in the new year.  I don't even know if that fact that they cashed out Sean Penn for Laura Dern was much of a news item.

But Eddie's special guests this week were enough for NBC to file a report.  On the last day of their Hawaiian vacation, President Obama and his daughters made a brief visit to Eddie's home in Kailua.  Here's hoping the Hawaiian sun energizes Ed and results in a 2015 announcement of Ukulele Songs II or an album of those lost songs from Out of the Furnace.
