Sunset:




Ladies and Gentlemen, the wait is over. With Tiki Oasis coming this week, they thought it was the perfect time for ChippenMales Magazine to announce their choice for "Mr. Tiki 2008".


Me!

The vote was unamimous! In addition to being my limited edition print for Oasis this year, this photo will be used for the month of February in the second issue, which will have a free pull out calendar. The debut issue, coming soon, will have an article about my tiki carving workout techniques and another one which is a how-to feature titled: "Tackling the Big Ones: How to Work the Big Logs with Bay Park Buzzy."

According to Greg Stacey of the O.C. Weekly, looking at images like this:

Is like receiving a retina massage after having them burned by looking at the "meth-head crazy, ... squiggly, ... nightmare visions of Ken Ruzic['s work]"
Consider me the cure!

Hey Babalu! Congrats on the great review of your work by Greg Stacey of the OC weekly! Must feel great to receive recognition from someone who knows his stuff. I couldn't wait for you to get back so I could show you this:

Did I hear someone say bears? maybe I need to bust out the "bear trap" again.

The choice of shot was easy becauseI wouldn't want to cheapen myself. I owe the public more than that.

Today's merge into dark:


Tiki Stuff Update:

Starting today's update, we'll warm up with my warm up carvings from tiki stack stick on a rope pendant pile #2 that I did last night because I had a carving jones:



There were two more on the bottom but they snapped off. That's the danger of tiki stack stick on a rope pendant construction. That's why so few even attempt to do it, and even fewer succeed

Now after that tiki stuff update warm up, try this:
Imagine the two moai with one coat of spar sitting in my garage drying...
(big dark tikis never photo well in my garage. Thanks for the extra effort required tonight.)

Now all you have to do is look:

This one is smaller so I can photo it:


I also have the drum in there drying after another coat if stain:




Today's big and time consuming project was the sanding and staining of the Ku:

You have to buy the magazine (available soon!) to see the good tiki "stuff." For now though, since you are "warmed up" and have again warmed up in the tiki stuff update section, try to imagine in your mind the big tiki pole, with nothing in the way to obscure your view...




I hope you can see it now.
Buzzy Out!

I cannot possibly cover the last week in one post, so I'll start a series of Tiki Oasis journal entries with this post.

Buzzy's Tiki Oaisis Journal Entry #1: House of Ku Day at the House of Buzz and Pre Event promotion.

Oh good lord, what a whirlwind this last week was! Tiki Oasis started for me with a very special visitor from da islands, House of Ku! It was great hanging out with good friend Freddie finally. I didn't take any pictures while he was here, but hopefully he'll be able to post up some he took here when he gets home and recovers. That friend of his worked him like slave labor while he was here! I'll do my Tiki Oasis journal entry about that day after I have some visuals. I'll skip all the sanding, staining, and work I did after Freddie left that day and skip forward to the next morning, when I went down to the local Fox studio to promote the event on some morning show I never heard of.
we didn't have any specifics about it prior, and were under the impression that it would be a short live tv spot on the event site on Thursday morning. That was great for me because I was supposed to be helping set up the stage at the same time. We found out that evening that it was to be a panel of people from the event filmed in the local fox studio, instead of at the hotel. I was told that I was only going to be talking about the event. I brought a few props that I hoped to sneak in to the segment.
When I got there, they sent me out back to the rear "stage" and asked me where my chainsaw was because they wanted me to carve live on tv. Crap! I thought i was going to be sitting on a couch blahblahblahing about the event. Luckily, I had my hookknives and small hand tools for props just in case I needed to fill some air time talking about the craft. I had one uncarved pendant on my tiki pendant on a stick on a rope stack and I told the producers I'd do some quiet hand carving on camera for my part of the segment. It was on a local morning show called San Diego Living, and was broadcast live at 9AM Friday morning. We were the second segment, after a live on location segment from a swimming pool with a bunch of kids who now wanted to be Michael Phelps and right before a back to school segment on how to stop your teenage daughter from dressing like a slut at school this upcoming year. It was about a seven minute segment and is archived on the Fox San diego website.

Now for the visuals:

I pulled my truck into the back lot where they do the outside segments. there was a big tarp to block the sun and a big crane camera


The stack of stuff I was going to try to use as product placement. I wanted to take the tall Lono, but when I went to load him in the morning, he was still wet. I brought the newku, a couple older pieces, tools, bling, and a couple other things I was going to try and get on camera


Wrinkled clothes are the new style this season, as well as a hat made by Cammo:


The panel turned out to be only King Kukuklele and myself. I'm setting up while he warms up



He tried to memorize eight pages of events, bands, happenings and seminars that Otto wnated us to mention while I get hooked up to audio


After that, the staff all disappeared and we were left outside again wondering what was up. All we knew was that we had less than three minutes until we went live. All set up and ready to go:

I can see my dirty truck right behind the fence!


Suddenly the back doors fly open, a whole production crew comes out with cameras, walkie talkies, and papers. Renee Kohn was the host who was to interview us. She said "hi", gave zaya a dirty look, they said "3-2-1" and we were a go


She talked about the event and asked King K some questions first

then he sang, she made some Baboon noises along with him while I did a hula dance


Then it was my turn to talk tiki


I rocked the bling and held it up for the viewers at home to marvel at> She asked me if they were comfortable and I answered that when I wore them, my hands felt like they were nude.


She couldn't help but admire my bling. She was so overtaken by its quality, she had to touch it to make sure it wasn't an illusion:

After that, I did a hooknife carving demo and talked about the carving hut and tiki vending that would be at Oasis.
Live tv hookknifing


Carving with bling on tv:

Check the cheesecake photo I tried to sneak into the frame

At the very end of the segment, I flashed the photo but they put a banner over it when they showed it on tv. Here's the stuff I tried to get on camera:


About two seconds after the segment was filmed, the entire staff disappeared, the doors to the studio were shut and locked, and King K and I were left standing in the parking lot alone again. A whole seven minutes had elapsed.

I went from there to the event to drop off some tikis for the stage and the photo shoots. Immediately after setting up the tikis, I had to run home and get ready for the the next chapter of my Tiki Oasis 2008 journal:

Bullet and Jonesey visit the House of Buzz!



Oh so much more later...
As seen on TV!
Buzzy Out!

Man Buzz I see you still haven't lost any of your Insanity
I would have Love to had been there watching that 7 minnit shoot but I'm sure they would have kicked me out for stopping the production with laffing too many times. Glad to see you're still crazy after all these years.
C'mon, wheres the rest of the journal?
