I can't believe you updated your thread title after 167 pages!

Anxiously awaiting the next episode of "Oasis Journal 08"...maybe we'll find out the answers to some burning questions:
What does the Lava Buzzy mean, and is there a faded green label on his back?(and why is he holding a roll of TP?)
Did Renee go home with a signed copy of the Mr. Tiki 2008 pic?
Why does Freddie come in later even though the story begins with him...is it kind of like Pulp Fiction? Will I then have to go back several pages to find the pics of Bullet and Jonesey?

Buzzy looks way more like a Tiki Guy than King Kukulele does.



So it was an ambush interview?!

How cool is it getting ambush interviewed by a lady with WAY too much makeup while she admires your bling and shoots dirty smirks at Zaya?

I didn't take any pictures on the House of Ku day at the House of Buzz. Freddie took a whole mess of shots while we were cruising around that day as well as some of my last minute frantic work to get ready. So Freddie, post away if you get a chance...I also couldn't do the Bullet and Jonesey entry because I had to take some pictures this morning for it. I just did that, so that entry comes next...

Hey Benny! The journal is going to be pretty long, so stick around awhile and see what's coming. It continues now...

Journal Entry #2: House of Ku day at the House of Buzz

So Freddie came out here with his friend for Oasis and was staying just up the road from me. His friend had to go to Temecula so I told Freddie to definitely not go with him and kill the day over at my place. I brought him over and gave him the nickel tour, and then we went on a local tikis tour. I made him watch me work for a while and then we went to Weinerschnitzel. To top off the San Diego experience, we went down to PB a walked around the area with all the bars and the ensuing madness when you have a high concentration of bars, booze, and scantly clad young ladies down by the beach.

Since I have no pictures of this great day, I'll post a picture of the donations that Freddie made to my collection instead:



Thanks Freddie! That's some great stuff!

Next chapter,
Bullet, Jonesey, and the Coco Jonz

Stay tuned!
Buzzy Out!

Tiki Oasis Journal Entry #3: Jonesey and Bullet at the House of Buzz

Continuing on with my non stop day on Friday, I left Oasis and went home real quick to meet up with Jonesey and Bullet. Later on, we were joined by Cammo and Lol tiki.
Jonesey and Bullet were met by the welcoming committee. Luckily, Ringo didn't jump up and pee on them when he met them. It was off to a great start!


Right here I'm showing them that mess extends out to the property line

Bullet was pre warned that my house was kind of "casual."

Here I am explaining where he should avoid going, which basically extends from south of I-8 all the way to terra del fuego.


My finger is resting on the Bali Hai


Guest appearance by the mad hatter Cammo, checking out the mess left over from several days of non stop work


And then the greatest thing ever happened: I was presented with a very special gift from Jonesey. He posted a preview here a few days before, but I exercised restraint in asking about it, because I wanted to hear it straight from the horse's mouth. Here he is telling us the story of it as he carefully unwraps the greatest piece of art produced in the history of western civilization:




In this picture you can see my extreme sense of joy I was experiencing as I held the piece in my hand for the first time.

What you cannot see in the picture is the overwhelming sense emotion we were all feeling as we heard the story and examined the piece. I was trying to keep my poker face, but I was so overcome with a rush of gratitude and respect that I started to cry. I said oh no, I'm starting to cry. And then Bullet says "Hey I'm crying too listening to this story," and then Zaya and Jonesey started crying also. Bunch of grown men standing around bawling. What a bunch of wimps we are. However, if anyone says anything to us about it in a mocking tone, I will promise that a crying wimp will beat your ass. This is a promise, not a threat, so it does not break TC rules. A threat implies that there may or may not a resulting action, where a promise guarantees action. See the fine legal distinction I can skate around.

Couple red eyed crybabies with the Coco Jonz satue, hand made by Jonesey.


Then back to the fun and games after that very special moment. Bullet rocks some tiki bling.


The dogs wanted to go home with Jonesey. Here they are waiting for him to gather them up with his stuff and go meet Freddie's friend visiting out here from Hawaii



Jonesey sporting a new Cammo lid and Bullet with his new bling pendant:

I was totally stoked to see him sportin' it with his Benzart pendant later that night. They were all in fine company together.

Sadly, they had to leave to go meet with Freddie's friend, but I'm sure another visit is on the horizon...

Damn that was a great afternoon!

Here's the piece that Jonesey made for me:

Modeled after the classic sculptures of Coco Joe's and HIP

A subtle lean

Hey Paipo, no faded tag, but a red sticker and tag in homage to the originals. Down further in this post is the homage to the legends booklets from the early coco joes too

Hybrid HIP- Coco Joes- Jonz marking

The pendant is modeled after the one I carved and wore in last year's cheesecake photo






So handsome!

I finally found a new signature! Thanks Jonesey!

Details to marvel at:











It even came with a booklet:





I told Jonsesy two things: this is the greatest thing ever and quit your day job.

This is the most valuable thing I now own. It's truly priceless. Words cannot express my gratitude for this, but I'll say thank you because I feel I need to try. Thanks Jonesey!

I don't consider myself an artist, but rather an entertainer. I also do not produce any art: I make tikis.

That pretty much sums up my feelings right now. Ditto to everything you just said.

Anyone know how to upload it? I can get a DVD copy of it...

I haven't cried since last Friday!

Buzz, you're immortal, man. In the true spirit of Tiki, you were admired enough to have a Tiki carved in your image, thus elevating you to the illustrious position of DIVINE TIKI GUY. The bards will sing your praises, man!

Absolutely amazing! Thanks for that Buzzy. I have seen a few glimpses of Jonesey's talents before, and the man definitely has the skills to take it to the tiki art world if he ever tires of his day job. Kind of cool when you find out a guy who is one of the ultimate collectors is every bit as good as anyone whose work he buys! I'd love a little more info on the making of the piece if you're willing to share TJ...

Buzzy's moment of glory can be found here:

there's a little embedded player on the right, and the Oasis video is the 1st of the 4 you can choose from (top left in the player)...
