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.


any one know what this was originally? I think it's an auto repair shop now... Freddie





I made him watch me work for a while ...








And more work...burning the candle at booth ends...
Personally, I think he's freakly like dat...Freddie




Nice deep color...the light reflecting off it makes Buzzy's shirt look almost pink.... in fact it was pink ...

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:

___Looks like Christmas at The House Of Buzz...



Pupu's to Da Max







Thanks Freddie! That's some great stuff!

Next chapter,
Bullet, Jonesey, and the Coco Jonz

Stay tuned!
Buzzy Out!

Meeting Freddie was GREAT. Freddie, you're the cement of brotherly love, man. One day, I'll bring the wife to the Islands(or she'll kill me in my sleep) and we'll hang out more when I can pay attention. Tiki Oasis this year was like being a marathon runner though heaven- exhaustion, elation, revelation, and Hawaiianization. I'm drunk on what was left of Cheekys' drink, so I'll stop there.

Yep, Buzzy is the KING of Tiki and has the tribute statue to prove it. BIG props to Jonsey for allowing a smidgen of his creativity to sneak out, We KNOW you have it because you throw a tease now and then.
Buzzy, maybe you should quit carving tiki and just become a writer, At Least till you get this journal done, WHERE's THE REST??
How happy it is to see Bullet wearing bling and a Smile, Yes HappyHappyHappy and More happy.
Buzz the video was Hilarious too and could have been More so had they let you do the directing, Now THAT would have been funny.

Tiki Oasis 2008 Journal Entry #4: The feeling of being watched

While I was down at the hotel on Friday morning, Zaya went to a leather supply company and picked me up a piece of rawhide for the drum head. I talked to the leather store lady about it the day before and it sounded like a pretty easy process. She said the hardest part would be cutting it. As soon as I got home, I took the hide and placed in the bathtub. It needed to soak for a little over an hour, so that meant that it would be ready about the time Jonesey and Bullet left. The funniest part about the rawhide was the reaction from the dogs. They were all over it. Pieces of rawhide for what I needed range in price from $50 to $200. Even though I got a low end piece of hide, it was still highly interesting to the dogs. We actually had to lock it in another room and they were still pacing and scratching at the door. When I put the hide in the tub, Kiva actually tried to take it out. I countered her advances by putting a bunch of rocks on it so it was completely submerged. That made it worse, because now I had in my bathroom a very tempting big bowl full of 20 gallons of warm rawhide soup.
The dogs were distracted by the arrival of our guests and the hide quickly softened. After Cammo had his second consecutive day of vending hats out of his car trunk out on the street in front of my house, and a mysterious package exchange between Bullet and LolTiki, everyone left and I had to get back to work. The whole time we were out in the street, I was wondering what my nosey neighbors were thinking. For a couple days now, Cammo would show up, open his trunk, and then people in Hawaiian shirts would gather around for several minutes and look at what he had in there, money would be exchanged, the trunk was slammed shut, and then everyone would quickly depart.

So now on to the drum head installation session:

The leather lady said I should cut the hide with a big pair of scissors. I tried that and it would kill my hand to do the whole perimeter cut. I then found use number #126 for my hookknife. It worked perfect and took about 40 seconds.
I started by making a paper template for it. I cut the head just a little larger than I needed. Based on how easily the hookknife cut the hide, I figured it would be real easy to cut it to size after I nailed it down.


I was kind of nervous when I was doing this because I had attack of paranoia because I was feeling like I was being watched the whole time





The next step was to nail it on. I stretched it and tacked away



I'm getting freaky forearm muscles from carving so much


Too much to do, not enough time. Freddie calls in the middle of the process so I have to multitask.

"Hey Buzzy, Howd the drum head turn out?"
" Freddie! I'm working on it as we speak."
"Cool! Where's Bullet and Jonesey They're not here yet."
"Carls' Jr. they should be there any minute now."
"Ok Buzzy, see you later tonight."
"C-ya Freddie."

Pulp Fictionesque cut to another setting:

Bullet, Freddie's Friend, and the Carl's Jr cup that is a metaphor for...


And now another quick cut to a flashback scene from the Bail hai the night before:

House of Ku and Zaya


Freddie and another one of his friends:

How does all this fit into the big plot? Keep watching to find out!


And then a quick cut back to the House of Buzz as the soundtrack switches to Bob Seger

I just about have it all nailed down as "Night Moves" rocks da House





Next step was to carefully remove the excess hide.

I have this troll who lives under my couch:


He darts out and grabs the scraps of rawhide when they hit the floor and quick as a flash he darts back into his den with them and gobbles them up.


The head was still loose and wet, and it would take a day or so to completely dry and stretch, so I just wrapped the rope into the recess I carved for it to size it so I could attatch it the next day




Here's the "finished" product:


And the dogs' patience finally paid off.
Ringo with a scrap larger than he is:


and Kiva finishing off the first of many pieces:


TC is real slow right now so I'm going to wrap up this post now and finish it up later.

Next Chapter: It's Go Time-Saturday's Fast paced Tiki Action Fest, featuring some of the most notable tiki personalities in the scene today!
Stay Tuned!

This is taking forever so no wonder I never did this the last couple years.
Buzzy Out!

Really really awesome drum Buzz.

I was chatting w/ Zaya when you sold it.

I'd like me one of them too so get choppin! Not kiddin! No head though. I'll take it to the World Beat Center and get a heavy goatskin stretched over it so I can wail like a champ... too bad I usually wail like a chimp!

(Did you scoop out the dookie before you tacked the head on?)

First off, I'd just like to take a moment to thank Buzzy for opening up his heart & home and for making this Ol'Navy guy feel right at home in the House of Buzz last September. For me, there was a soulful connect with this Tiki Guy and that translated into creating a special item to display with his monsterous collection of resin HIP, CoCo Joe's, Lava Ray, Poly Art and Schirmann's. One that would ring true to his image and forever anger the Gods in the House of Ku (sorry, this is all BF..."Before Freddie")

So now to move along and not to derail or clog up Buzzy's Journal, I'm again touched by this Tiki Guy, Zaya, Kiva & Ringo for being such a great gang of peepo, Cammo's curbside lid service and the great times had swinging with Buzzy's good buddy from Hawaii... now I'm feeling that a menehune tribute is to follow?

Here's a couple pic's of the claymation birth of the Tiki Guy- Legend of Bay Park Buzzy... just a couple bricks of Super Sculpey Firm and some cheap modeling tools. A snappy color photo,a penciled sketch of idea and a small group of Local Union of Poly Resin Workers, to see the job is done correctly, on time and within contracted budget. Toss in a couple lost weekends to create and many, many, too many months to finish and you can capture the mana of a BUZZY?



That's it... back to our regular and entertaining episodes on the HOUSE OF BUZZ.

I got to bang it lightly a couple of times and it sounded great at low volume. Imagine how that sucker sounds with a dread-locked hippy banging on it!

Yes the drum turned out Fantastic and you should probably do some more at least until you're sick of them and don't want to se any more, then do a few more. Meanwhile...this Journal is icing on the Buzzy-Cake so Where's the REST?? You Know we have NO Patients, we're not doctors you know.
Don't make us BEG!
Gimmee gimmee gimmee, I want it now.
