Get your T-shirts, get your red-hot T-shirts

Advertiser Staff and News Services

Just in time for Kilauea Volcano's increased eruption activity, Crazy Shirts has come out with a new specialty dye called "crater dye." Made from volcanic ash, it produces shades of dark gray, much like the lava on the Big Island.

The shirts come in three new volcano-inspired designs and are sold at all 37 Crazy Shirts stores in Hawai'i, Guam and on the Mainland. Crater dye is the latest in Crazy Shirts' series of specialty dyes made from coffee, beer, wine, chili, hemp, money (shredded from real money from the San Francisco mint) and chocolate.

'On Location' returns home to mark 9/11

MSNBC's Ashleigh Banfield, who has spent 240 days on the road since Sept. 11 in places such as Islamabad, Pakistan, and the Gaza Strip, returns to the United States for a series of reports on how Americans are weathering the post-9/11 era in a series of reports now through Sept. 11.

In this month leading up to the anniversary, Banfield will do her MSNBC program, "On Location" (Monday through Thursday at 4, 7 and 10 p.m. Hawai'i time), live from 17 cities, towns and military bases across the country.

The final stops will be Washington on Sept. 9 and 10, and New York on Sept. 11.

Lilo and Stitch to play for the deaf

Lilo and Stitch are taking their adventures to O'ahu's deaf and hearing impaired, thanks to the Signature Pearl Highlands 12 theater, where "Lilo & Stitch" will be shown with open captions at 11:10 a.m. and 7:25 p.m. today and tomorrow.

"It's a Hawai'i-themed movie, number one, and number two, Disney made it available to us (in open captioning)," said Joe Cuculich, division manager of Signature Theatres Hawai'i. He said if the company receives a positive response, it's definitely something they would try again.

Kristine Pagano, a teacher at St. Francis School who is deaf, purchased tickets nearly a week ago: "I couldn't believe it," she said. "We have waited so long to see captioned movies in movie theaters (here)."
