Of course, my kung fu teacher Pun Chankik was also very helpful in my being so focused.


Mention of the great Pun Chankik reminds me of something I read recently. An article about the upcoming Matrix sequels mentions that the martial arts master they consulted for the fight scenes is named Yuwan Wu-Ping (I think that's the spelling). Sounds like a good guy for the job, but he might have a short fuse.

Yep, Ping is the guy who was a consultant from the original. Apparently he has to train them through translators since he speak no english. Here's an article about him.

Mr. G fell victim to post Oasis separation anxiety and slipped over the edge. Of the table.

All this tiki misfortune almost brings a tear to my eyes. This reminds me of a visit I was lucky enough to make to Bosko's place last year. He has what looks like a graveyard of broken mugs strewn thoughout his property. Super rare vintage mugs that I would kill for...broken in pieces then half buried in mud like landscaping art...dozens of them. The poor little tiki guys sort of looked like the living dead. It was a little creepy, but mostly cool.

So how was your Labor Day weekend? I spent the afternoon lounging by the pool enjoying the sounds of Ape with a delicious Mojito in my new (eBay acquired) Huki Huki mug.

Late in the afternoon some of my buddies & their gal pals came by and after a few drinks a game of Football Marco Polo ensued. Its played just like Marco Polo but with a football - and you still can't open your eyes when you throw the ball.

My bro: "Marco"
Me: "Polo"


My bro throws the football at me in an attempt to 'tag' me with it. As I dive into the pool out of its path the ball nails Huki Huki right between the eyeballs as it rested on the patio table.

We all watched it fall in slow motion while someone reached for it and in a deep, distorted, slow motion sounding growl, shreiked "nnooooo..."


Rest in peace my dear friend.

Was there an official burial service for lost or broken Tiki mugs performed at any of the celebrations for the 1st Annual International Tiki Day Celebration?

Has anyone been saving the broken tiki pieces to make a mosaic? It'd look pretty interesting with all the different glaze colors & bits of tiki faces peeking out.

Hey Now Freddie,

I was thinking along the same lines. Or perhaps wet sanding them flat and turning them into wall hangings. It all depends on the break.

While setting up for Da Show (3:00am)
Gecko and I were moving stuff into the auditorium.

I loaded 6 crates on a dolly and proceeded to go up a curb.

As I lifted my end... I thought that Gecko was spotting me... however, I didn't see him go back to the van....

Crash!! the top crate fell & toppled to the ground.
Everything is alright... I kept telling myself...

But as I began to unload... 2 Hawaiian steins, 4 coconut mugs, 2 hula girl figurines, and 1 ashtray were all mangled into one pile of white chalk.

... sniff... sniff
I gotta go now....

The wife came up with a great use for broken mugs or just about broken anything that is Ceramic...it gets planted in our flower garden. Actually it all livens up the garden and give our friends something to talk about when we are hangin' in the back yard! I,ll try to post some pics soon.

Sigh.

Pity the poor Moai.



The poor doomed mug didn't make it from my car to the house.

Sigh.
