Mister Bay Park Buzzy. You are a know-all. Somewhere somebody numerated all the wise guys + i guess, you where in.

Honestly, although I not that long registered, I been reading your post for a long time now and it helped a lot. Especially the 'what I have learned'-sections.
And sometimes I just laugh my head off.

Thanks, for all that.

Not Tiki, cause the guy doing it is wearing surfer sunglasses and a big-assed diver watch he bought at Wal-Mart?

But Buzzy is the final authority!

Dear Tiki Guy,

I just wanted to write to let you know that your "Tiki Guy Color Guide" has been extremely helpful. I have printed a copy to hang in my closet to make it easier when putting away the laundry. I think that in your "much anticipated" new book that explains (in detail) the evolution of the Tiki Guy, you should include a pull out leaflet of this color guide so that all might be able to reap the same benefits as I.....wait a minute....I feel I've been here before??....You didn't go back in time and make me say this did you?

On another note Tiki Guy, I have just been given a Tommy Bahamas shirt by someone I care about very much...They have said it was Tiki, but I just don't know? This question has proven very frustrating for me and I fear I have been loosing sleep. I don't see a cream color anywhere on the color guide. Can you help?

I know I'm a tiki guy want-a-be, but I just keep feeling that I will never-be.

Signed,

Sleepless in San Diego


PS. If we made bumper stickers of the color guide would it send the wrong message?

Guys these color spectrum's are great, but I think we need a "BUZZY COLOR BY NUMBER SYSTEM", so that any of us who are color blind can also have a rainbow colored closet. It will also aid in knowing what to put on with for the right occasion. Like GER-Animals, for adults.

Some recent sunsets:

















Now some tiki stuff:












Now from my vast base of tiki knowledge:

TJones: Thank you for asking me if the image you provided was tiki before you went ahead and tried to decide on it for yourself. Ironically, I use that image in my forthcoming book: The Field Guide to the North American Tiki Guy. I'll answer you... But first, let me address Teakey...

Teakey: I would concur that that the painted image on the man's chest was based upon a traditional Easter Island figural form. I will now provide two examples from the House of Buzz Photo Archives to back my claims:



Now Jonesey: Knowing that an image is based on an easter Island piece will, in most cases, establish its tikiness without argument. It's pretty much a tiki given, or an absolute when including Easter Island art in the PolyPop tiki guy inventory of tiki acceptedness. However, this specific picture does have some elements that cause us to further question its overall tiki authenticity.

At face value, the picture is tiki. However, one needs to look at the context of the photo to ascertain its overall tiki validity. Let's examine the photo again:

Notice the background: Looks like Burning Man environment to me. No backyard tiki bar or tropical in sight. A tiki guy would never go to Burning Man because the Tiki Guy's skin cannot handle the sunlight, and the Tiki Guy parties in an opposing manner to the Hippie burning man loadies. After total scrutiny: This looks to more like a Hippie Burning man dude than a Tiki Guy to me. However, one must not always trust what one sees...

You see Jonsesey, despite the visual clues, my Tiki Guydar was registering of the charts. How could that be? I asked myself...
Then I took a closer look and went back in my time machine to Tiki Oasis 1 to verify my findings: If you look closely, you will notice the guy in the picture on the left is actually a young Crazy Al. That's GROG (in his long hair metalhead phase) who volunteered to paint up his "tan...six pack abs"(the man speaks from experience!) in the picture. I never would have recognized them either. You see, back then, Al used to go around with this painting and say he was a living tiki mug to market himself to the Tiki Guy consumer base. Polypop entuhusiasts responded cooly to his devotion to traditional polynesian culture, and he soon abandoned this look for his much more successful beachcomber/ coconut player ensemble at tiki events. That my friend, is a Historical Photo of the Preday- Heyday which Precceeds the future devolution of the Modern Tiki Guy Movement.
Not only is that picture Tiki: it's historical vintage tiki some day!

Babalu: Many a well dressed successful men have idled about in TB shirts, and there is nothing wrong with that, for them. However, the Tiki Guy can wear only two types of shirts, in combo, or individually:
#1 A VINTAGE tiki, or Hawaiian, shirt, of any material design and composition. Used shirts do not count, only vintage.
#2 A tiki Tshirt, depicting a tiki image or a shirt that commemorates a past tiki event.
You can wear the TB shirt until you take being a Tiki Guy, and yourself a little more seriously.
And...I had the pullout closet guide made, but the printers messed up the colors and we didn't put them in the final draft because we had no time to redo them and were in a hurry to get it in markets by next Tiki season.

Tok-Tok: Greetings my European Friend! I know you do not remember, but it was I who brought Tiki to your country, and told you about tiki a long time ago while you were sleeping. I did it with my time machine to make sure tiki would be alive and well in Germany. I also went to HaiKai and taught him how to carve when he just started out. I said to him when he was carving a mantlepiece, "You should carve American Tikis!" He did and then I went in my time machine to see who killed Marilyn monroe, but my lawyer said I cannot talk about that book yet...
Wecome Tok-Tok, to the House of Buzz, I hope you understand enough of all this because it is all true...

H20: I will have a Tiki Guy product line out soon. I've been designing clothes in between the the authoring and carving.

I'm still a couple weeks behind on PM's, so hang on a couple of you, I'll answer them soon...


I am the Author of my own Authority!
Buzzy Out!

So.. what you are saying is, that there will be brass knuckle handles on the tiki guy coffee cups?

And...

Didn't we agree last year at some point that wild fires make for pretty sunsets? or was that Hurricanes? How about a fire hurricane?

Sunsets:






Been working on chainsaw carving in between other stuff...


I cleaned and split a log today. Started carving this just because it was such a nice day and I wanted to spend it outside:




Here it was at day's end:



Tornhalo: Babalu has been in email contact with tikizippo regarding the mug.If he can get someone on the phone who speaks english, he is going to ask for brass knuckle handles. Since it was your idea, ypu are now officially a mug designer. You should put something in your TC signature to reflect this fact.

Chocolate Milk Time!
Buzzy Out!

I'll have to come up with something catchy..

But first I'm going to petition to have my legal name changed to "Fire Hurricane Sparklefat Cannonball Devain Unclear".

On a compleatly related subject, If you infact carved a pumpkin for Halloween, did you take a pic that you could post for us?

Did a little work on the face of this guy last night:

Crappy, cloudy day today. Glad that I worked outside all day yesterday.

Tornhalo: No pumpkin this year...I spend every Halloween locked inside my house not answering he door. Damn freeloaders!

Closettiki: Yes, those ARE extremely valuable now...

Buzzy Out!
