GROG: I'm actually advancing the devolution of the modern tiki movement before its impending heyday. This new movement of mine, as you noticed, will certainly not be about quality. Better jump on this bandwagon quick before it passes you by...



Buzzy Out!







OK, Buzz.......Only TWO things missing from this tiki and one is a TOTALLY bloated price tag. The other is a declaration that it is more artistic to carve a minimal tiki than to completely detail it and make it nice. Only then have you taken tiki out of the islands and backyards and into the art galleries. Make sure you dress like you're depressed at your art shows as well. Sells more pieces when you're misteriously sad.

"Make sure you dress like you're depressed at your art shows as well. Sells more pieces when you're misteriously sad."

That's the blind little match girl syndrome. People want to buy matches from miserably sad cripples; it makes them feel less guilty for eating that Lobster Thermidore later in the evening. Buying art has become charity.

But it's a sharp knife to walk; you can't look like a bum, cause then they can't brag about meeting you at the Opening Reception and get their friends all jealous about it. Better to look dirty, extremely poor, distracted and horribly misunderstood, like a genius who's been overlooked by society. Of course Albert Einstein never looked miserable, but nobody ever thinks about this stuff too closely...

I sure hope the House of Buzz hasn't been engulfed in flames yet, or worse still, attacked by bears fleeing said flames. The fires are all over the news here today.
What's happening there Buzzy?

Buzzys Bay Park home is nowhere near any fires, but his family and girlfriend live out in the middle of all of them. If anyone saw the post on the "Hows' Bosko" thread, you'll see that his uncle just about lost his place if it hadn't been for having the balls to defend his home. Let's hope the rest of the Meekers are OK. Hell, let's hope EVERYONE is Ok.

A couple sunsets before the fires started:



I was at Babalu's for the first fire sunset, here it was yesterday:

bunch of smoke instead of marine layer out there


Here it was today:

A lot more smoke in the air

that tall building is the Catamaran


I was about as far away from every fire as one could possibly get. Like Billy said, it was a little closer to my parents and Zaya's places, but everyone is safe and out of danger now(there at least.) My Uncle Jeff was able to save his house from the fire

Here's a video of my Uncle Jeff from the news


I was out of the country last time we had the big fires here a few years ago, so all this fire stuff was new to me. I spent the day watching familar places being evacuated and hearing about more and more friends and family in danger on the news. Wild times indeed!

When they were out of fresh news footage, I holed up in the house and did some detailing on this guy:




Now, to catch up on some long overdue correspondence...

Buzzy, will there be a new Buzzy video on the devolution of modern tiki? plus newest techniques of how to carve quickly and effectively in half the time???


Yes! But first, a video on cleaning logs. It got finished on Friday night, but there were techincal difficulties with it being uploaded to youtube, and it was subsequently pulled. The good news is that it is finished, on a backup disc, and ready for uploading. So whatever that means...

Hey BUzZ,

I wanted to let you know how impressed I am with your work on the Gansta Ku. nIt really is a beautiful piece. Thanks so much. I have it up next to my BeZart. Additonally, thanks for the Tki Guy pendant. What a wonderful prize for guessing the sunset date. I'm honored to have him and to be able to be a tiki guy imposter when I need to. Thanks again for the carvings. They are some of my alltime favorites.
-G



GMAN: Congrats on winning the first House of Buzz sunset contest ever! So glad you like them and I feel honored you wanted and have placed the gangsta in such good company. I'm glad you chose so wisely for your prize also. I couldn't have been happier in sending it(and da gangsta) to you. Keep your eyes on those guys, they like to cause a little trouble.
And...

They look SO happy in their new environment.
Now let's see the man room update!
But let's talk about the above outfit...
Nice try, but you still need a little work before you will blend in at an event as a official Tiki Guy. You still look like you're wearing a Tiki Guy costume. Here is what you will need to change: (This is a preview of what you will look forward to in one of the dozen or so books I have on tap to author in the next few years. It will be in the same format as the Preppy handbook in the 80's. It will probably called Tiki Guy Modern)
First, the footwear. You got it half right with sandals and socks. But, you have the wrong sandals. You need those big strappy velcro things called "Teevas" with the socks. Tiki Guys need shoes with more straps because they get so drunk that they always lose shoes without seatbelts.
Secondly, Tiki Guys always wear shorts. Tiki Guy is about a state of mind. It's taking the Polnesian paradise at home fantasy to it's extreme. It's bringing the polynesian atmosphere wherever you are. A Tiki Guy on the summit of Mt Everest will be wearing shorts and drinking a Mai Tai, because in his mind, he is actually in Tahiti, where it's too hot to wear pants.
Third, is the shirt. That shirt you have on is only acceptable in the following situations: Casual Friday at the office, or if you are a contrator with your office in the back seat of your F350, it is what you wear to a business meeting(tucked in). Tiki Guys wear shirts that announce that they have arrived. the highest honor for a true Tiki Guy is to be asked to enter a costume contest when he is wearing the same outfit he wears to the grocery store. Try a lot more color. Remember, you want the old you to want to kick the new you's ass!
Next, The hat. Three letters: F-E-Z Problem solved!
And, Tiki Guys always wear sunglasses or have racoon eye tan lines. You can fake this easily with some spray on tan.
Lastly, the bling pendant: perfect! It actually almost negates all the other flaws in your attire.
Do all the changes I suggested and trade in that tiki you're holding for a ceramic limited edition numbered tiki event mug( that you bought on ebay) full of liquor, and you're on the Official Tiki Guy Registry.


If anyone else needs help with their aspiring Tiki Guy attire, just post a picture and I'll do the Tiki Guy version of What Not To Wear.

Sorry for the delay guys...
Buzzy Out!

Glad all is well in the World of Buzz. Impressive line up of Tikis too. I was wondering if you'd include a treatise on Tiki chick attire in the new book?

Becoming a Tiki Guy will be one of the hardest things you will ever put your mind, and especially your body, through in your life. The rewards will be worthy and plentiful at the end of your long journey, and happily, you will find that being a true Tiki Guy takes no effort in the end: It becomes YOU! Or you become IT!...something like that.

Not specifically in that new book, but it will definitely be covered in another new book I am researching at the moment on women. As`you know, I have several new books in the works, and it seems everyday I decide another topic to cover in yet another book. So you can look forward to plenty of tomes on tiki women.

Thanks Duddy. That was Babalu who caught that thing. I would have stomped it.

And...
That wasn't spanking G.! That was just me trying to impart but a slice of my vast knowledge of all things Tiki Guy to a person who is respectfully attempting to recreate a culturally distinct and visibly identifiable sub group of Post Modern Polypop tiki enthusiast in his outward appearance: the Modern Tiki Guy!

Closetiki: thank you for providing the example of your shirts. What you have there is what I classify as a shirt "inventory", not a shirt "collection." What a Tiki Guy aspires to have is a "shirt collection." Here is a preview of a topic from my forthcoming book: Home Organization and Decoration the Tiki Guy Way! where I will discuss the proper color distribution and quantity of shirts in the Tiki Guy shirt collection.
While your inventory is vast, it weighs heavily on a very small slice of the overall visible light spectrum. What you should strive for in your collection is a perfeectly equal distribution of each wave of the spectrum. Here is an example of the color spectrum. At a minimum, your collection should appear to the drunken eye as the following diagram does:


In General and in conclusion: Arranging and acquiring a legitimate and certifiable Tiki Guy Shirt Collection will satisfy both the OCD and compulsive hoarding forms of psychosis often associated with the Tiki Guy psyche. The Ultimate Tiki Guy will have a two tiered shirt collection in his closet with a perfect balance of all waves of the spectrum represented. He will take hours to acquire and arrange the shirts in the perfect visual composition. The results of his labors should look like this in the end:



Closetiki, I think you now know what the focus of your life should be. Get that closet in order and balance up to the standards of a true Tiki Guy. You need some orange and and more red in there IMMEDIATELY! I'm so glad you brought this to me so I could tell you how you are supposed to arrange and purchase your clothes.

If anyone out there needs to come to me for Tiki validation, I want you to know you are always welcome and I enjoy helping all of you find the true path.

Buzzy Out!
