Damn, Conga...you popped that sh*t like a shoeshine rag! Awesome, highly creative work. Trying to do art without being repetitive or plaguristic in some fashion is tough, but your mind works from point A to Z (Tiki Robert Pollard?); you're an open channel. Some of the most interesting, original stuff here, man...

Truly amazing, and completely original! I'm definitely going to have to ask you for some advice on finishes, because yours are always so nice. You've outdone yourself!

Pearl Jam=Buzzkill...I mean like bad. Those guys should listen to more Hasil Adkins and Link Wray. Go lowbrow. Drink cheap bourbon instead of Starbucks. Pop some blues and go to the Who show....

Damn Conga, I Really love how much your work has blossomed here recently, ever since you started to do PNG stuff, you have just plain gone crazy.. " Crazy Conga" is gonna be yer new name. I don't think you have been carving for even 2 years yet, how'd you get so good so fast? Can't wait tom see what your next one will be.

Well thank you all very much...
Ben...you're right...started carving in fall of 04...the PNG style allows me to "let things flow"
without bastardizing a style of familiar tiki...If I plan things out too much I just get in trouble...

Basement/McTiki...I missed that whole Pearl Jam thing...do they have a tune called "Dream Potion?"
I am primarily into Exotica and world music now...I love the Eddie Vedder song with Nusrat that is
on the "Dead Man Walking" soundtrack...and I really like "Last Kiss."

Silverline/8 Foot/Finky/GMan/LittleLostTiki/Poly...appreciate the kind words...I also like the
finish I achieved on the last couple...everything I know was channeled through BK...once
again...lots of sanding...moderate torch burn...stain....my little chalk trick....and a
light workout with furniture wax....and a little dirt tossed in for good measure.

Now I need to get more basswood.
