It's a sing-a-long.....

Weve been crying now for much too long

And now were gonna dance to a different song

Gonna sream and shout til my dying breath

Gonna smash it up til theres nothing left


(chorus)

Oooh ooh smash it up, smash it up, smash it up

Oooh ooh smash it up, smash it up, smash it up


People call me villain oh its such a shame

Maybe its my clothes must be to blame

I dont even care if I look a mess

Dont wanna be a sucker like all the rest


(chorus)

Smash it up (x5)


Smash it up, you can keep your krishna burgers

Smash it up, and your glastonbury hippies

Smash it up, you can stick your frothy lager

Smash it up, and your blow wave hairstyles


(repeat verse 1)


(chorus)


And everybodys smashing things now

I said everybodys smashing things now yeah

This is another thread I hoped I would never add to. When I began carving I read how the experienced carvers had all managed to injure themselves and draw blood. And I finally cut myself on tiki carving #3.
Now I have my first broken mugs. I guess I have paid some of my dues now.

Check out these. They are the small Orchids of Hawaii Moai but I didn't have one. So I figured that when I got these 4 I would have some trading material. Thanks to a seller who isn't as smart as the bubble wrap they tried to use in my package, I received the following.

8FT - I don't know what it is with Moai mugs...I bought a lot of 4 Kahiki Moai off Ebay about a year ago and ended up with 2 that were not pulverized. Maybe they don't like to travel in large groups?

I was doing routine maintenance in Aku Hall yesterday (Sunday). Standing on a chair, re-arranging the record sleeves hung along the top edge of the wall. The chair I was standing on gave way, and down I went.

The chair went flying across the room and took out two of those 12" tall Hapa wood tiki statues from KC Company. Shattered 'em.

My United Airlines tiki-framed map of Hawaii was dragged down with me, and the frame shattered into a half dozen pieces.

I landed halfway on my vintage bamboo sofa. My arm went through the bottom of the middle section, completely shattering the bamboo slats under the seat of the middle section. The cushion wrapped around my arm as it went thrugh the seat, saving me from cuts.

My rib cage landed HARD on the armrest of the sofa.

I spent 24 hours in agony, convinced that I had broken a rib.

Just got back from the hospital.

X-rayed twice, and then ultrasound.

Hurts when I breathe, kills when I move at all. Driving the Mobile Exploration Lab to the hospital (stick shift) was agony.

Good news is no broken brones or popped organs.

Just some mashed-up muscles, stressed cartiledge, and nasty bruises.

Bad news is I'm gonna be in pain for the next week or so.

It doesn't hurt unless I move... so I am DAMNED glad I got all of those DVDs around Xmas time!

It's couch potato mode for me all week, like it or not.


Anyone have an extra Unite Airlines Hawaii map (with the dense-foam, wood-like tiki n' whales frame) for sale?

Mine's wasted.

No pics of the devistation, too depressing...

Tiki is indeed a dangerous sport!

Hey Bars!
Glad to hear your in one piece.
We don't want any Tiki Bone Misfortunes.
Did rum play a part? It always did for me.

That's the sad part - I was completely sober and still trashed the place in one fell swoop (literally).

Little known fact about me: every year from New Year's day until mid-February I am 100% booze free, and I also eat no signifigant amounts of sugar in that time.

I guess the gods were feeling petulant that I was spending so much time in the Aku Hall without offering ritual rum sacrifices...

Damn Tikibars, that's such a shame. I feel terrible for ya. I know you really enjoyed that United map. Are you sure it isn't salvageable?

I'm glad you're alright though.

I'm sure another map will come your way soon enough.

Yes yes, I know they are smiling. But inside they are shedding a thousand tears.
