Aloha Zulu,

Well it's a shame that some negativity had to drift into this thread, but I'm honestly in too good of a mood from Saturday's event to get into throwing a bunch of stones with you.

To answer your Caerthe/Eleio question, yes I, just like you ZuluMaggo/Miehana, have possessed a different TC name and changed it for a similar reason. I too realized that after some time on the lists, my name was borrowing too heavily from other influences and I choose Eleio to better reflect my tiki persona. I've really made no effort to hide my former name, so I'm uncertain as to why you feel this is such an important item to discuss at this time, but no matter. I would invite anyone who hasn't read either of these threads, to please take a look. Personally, I feel that though some of the discussion was a bit passionate, the tiki public really had some excellent things to say.

Regarding your implications that Iím attempting to create another tiki group in Denver, I think youíve completely misunderstood my intentions. Ohana is the word the tiki community predominantly uses for Family, which is what I believe weíre both working to create. I don't think Hanford Lemoore was feeling threatened, claiming any role of leadership or attempting to create division when he used this word for the OHANA section of the TC lists and it was in that same spirit in which I used it for the Tiki Links event, the incredible sign that Tiki-el agreed to create for everyoneís use (which you never commented upon when he posted what he was specifically making, some time ago) and now for this thread. Simple as that. Why youíve just now chosen the use of this word to find great offense and make this such a public issue, intrigues me since you seemed to have no issue with being associated with that word (Iím referring to the Tiki Links event flyer) when I was offering you credit for your input on the project and have included Denver Ohana in just about every Tiki Links post Iíve sent over the last couple months. If the words Denver Ohana confused and bothered you so much, why didnít you let me know or ask me to have your name removed from the flyer?

Regarding my association with the Rocky Mountain Tiki Newsletter, Iím a bit puzzled. Since I havenít contributed an article and declined your very strong insistence that Tiki Links be sponsored by your newsletter, I donít really see any reason why my association with your creation should be an issue? I have no ill feelings towards this project and have, in fact, promoted your work to the numerous contacts I made while creating Tiki Links, not to mention the advertising I tried to help you obtain to lessen your out of pocket. I just didnít think that Tiki Links (nor any Denver tiki event) absolutely needs to be supported, sponsored or endorsed by either you, or your publication, in order to happen. Is this wrong? I donít think so, but you apparently feel otherwise. Also, though Iím extremely happy with the Tiki Links event and have decided to host it annually, I must wonder and be concerned for those who host future tiki events in Denver. If they also chose not to seek your personal support or your newsletterís endorsement, will it also be implied that they are unsupportive of the Denver Ohana?

I truly wish that you had made the effort to speak with me first before making such rash assumptions, creating another thread and subjecting everyone to such negativity. I know that youíve voiced your opinions about me and Tiki Links in other forums and venues, but I must wonder why you never spoke to me about any of this? It seems to me that addressing your frustration and confusion, with me personally, wouldíve provided the best results for everyone. Furthermore, I wonder (though you said that you didnít want to create another Denver Tiki thread and are aware of some of the potential negative effects) why you did anyway?

I really hope we can get through these misunderstandings and continue to have fun. If not, then Iíll wish you the best with your projects as Iím not going to ask people to pick a side. They, like me, are just here to have fun and I don't think that the Denver tiki movement is as small and fragile as you might think.

-Eleio

So why change the name of the thread?

According to all of the info sent out about Tiki Links, the event was sponsored by " Denver Ohana ", which I take to be the name attached to the events Eleio organizes. The connotation is that by re naming the thread, Eleio has attached ownership to everything that we have posted since it's inception. It is kind of like saying that all of this wonderful information is brought to you courtesy of " Denver Ohana TM.". It is true that Caerthe / Eleio started the thread, and unless I am gravely mistaken, it was meant as a place where all of us could swap info. Starting this thread was a nice accomplishment. I have personally enjoyed hours of entertainment because of it. What I have a problem with is that all of our contributions have now been "branded", and in so doing, Eleio is asserting himself as a the owner of all that has transpired in the link.

If a Tiki King is what we need, then so be it. Everyone is free to think and feel the way they want. For my measly two cents worth, what we really need is a Witch Doctor!

Mahalo Nui Loa!

T.F.

So Fink, are you saying that if I change the title back to Denver Tiki, rather than Denver Ohana, everything is mended?

Aloha!

Just a quick note for anyone interested. The ARC thrift store at 7485 E Iliff Ave (303) 752-2731, has two sets of very realistic looking potted palm trees. My description won't do them justice, but each 2 1/2' tall pot contains three palm trees that are around 10-12' in height. In addition, it doesn't appear (at least to my untrained eye) that any of the fronds are missing. Obviously something donated from a serious decorator or from a restaurant/business, these items are priced at $199 ea. I don't know what the market price is for such items, but I have a feeling you'd be hard pressed to find similar for the same $. I wish I had the cash and the ability to store these, but maybe one of you do. I've never really watched an item at a thrift store, so I'm uncertain if the price will come down or sent to another location, if it doesn't sell within a certain time.

Mahalo!

-Eleio

Aloha el,

I'm currently putting together an event recap (with pics) and hope to have it posted very soon.

Regarding the event and the sign, both went over extremely well! Though the weather was blustery, we had 30 participants for the competition, with a few more joining us at the Red Lantern.

More on both, in a very short while.

-Eleio

I'm putting this here.....but also there, or I'm gonna start my own thread, because I live in my own happy world anyway.
I'm looking for other Colorado tiki artists for a winter spring show I'd like to put together.
Not for a couple of months.
I know of myself and Doppelganger studios and maybe one more.
But p.m. if ya know of any others and we'll have a reason to have a tiki show and party.
All my luv....Mr. Dale

Aloha folks.

Just a heads up that I've posted the Tiki Links recap on the thread of the same name.

Mahalo!

Aloha!

The summer has finally come to a close and though we were once only strangers, we've progressed far from just a simple forum thread (originally in the TC Ohana section) and have gathered often and laughed even more. Through a variety of events, discussions and projects, we have formed a bond greater than that of just a shared interest.

In tiki terms, we have become an Ohana.

In celebration and support of this, Tiki-el has created this most excellent work for the general use of the group.


Can you spot the "C" from the Colorado flag?

The sign is approx. 4 feet tall and 2 1/2 feet wide. Though there are future plans to create some kind of flip-out stand, eyelet screws have been installed on the top for hanging.

If you wish to use the sign, just simply post it on this thread and arrange to pick it up from whomever is currently in possession. Though nobody specifically owns it, it is the responsibility of the person currently in possession, to make sure the sign is kept in good condition.

If you wish to alter or enhance the sign, please respect the original artist and his vision and contact Tiki-el before doing so.

Tiki-el specializes in Tiki style tattoos at Freaky's Tattoo and Body Piercing in Boulder.

Mahalo!

-Eleio

A little bird told me that The Hut is looking to Oceanic Arts for some of their decor. Not sure what or how much, but it's assuring to know that the right resources are being tapped for Denver's tiki enjoyment.

That is COOL! Tiki-el, may we use its during our Denver tiki show? Kind of hang it in front? I don't know when yet, but Winter sometime.

Do you have some tiki art you'd like to show?

Mr. Dale

For all of you Dcnver area folks, the Denver Art Museum opened up its new wing and there is a nice but small selection of Papau New Guinea Tiki items on display. One great chair and a shield and house carving piece that are really nice. Fun to see some real Oceanic art.

Aloha MatterHorn.

Thanks for the heads up!

I'm know there are a number of lurkers who also appreciate the info.

Mahalo!
