Hey ya'll!!

We're just a day away!!

Pleasantly overcast skies make it perfect for us... very comfortable all day long and GREAT for some awesome photos.

This is going to be so much FUN!!

Earlier I posted that we would have beer and drinks, but our vendor had to cancel as he was having trouble with the short notice and his permit. So, it's back to BYOB or look around for Trailer Vic's. Sorry about the confusion.

We'll have the vintage movies on two screens. If you prefer a new release movie, we'll have Talladega Nights and Miami Vice on the other two screens.

A last reminder on what to bring:
Folding chairs, boom box style radio, a cooler (NO glass bottles), hat, sunscreen, maybe an umbrella for shade (or for drizzle even). No credit cards, cash only so hit the ATM before hand.

Thanks! Come early and have a blast!!

SUNDAY at the Egyptian Theatre there's a Ski and Surf Double Feature. Surf Party has the Astronauts and the Routers! See all of you tomorrow! Woggles dance off!! I'll be doin' the jab.

Sunday, August 6 7:30 PM

Ski And Surf Double Feature:

SKI PARTY, 1965, MGM Repertory, 90 min. Dir. Alan Rafkin. It seemed only natural that strange mutations would evolve as the beach pictures continued in popularity at the drive-ins, and here we have the kids hitting the snowy slopes for their summer fun. Hard-up teen guys, Frankie Avalon and Dwayne Hickman (TVs "Dobie Gillis"), fearing they will continue to strike out with the objects of their affections, follow heartthrobs, Deborah Walley (GIDGET GOES HAWAIIAN) and Yvonne Craig (Batgirl from TVs original "Batman") when they depart on a ski trip. A bizarre subplot has Frankie and Dwayne taking a page from SOME LIKE IT HOT as they dress up in drag to spy on their girls. In the meantime James Brown and His Famous Flames (!) perform mega-hit, "I Feel Good" and Leslie Gore sings her ever-popular perennial, "Sunshine, Lollipops and Rainbows."

SURF PARTY, 1964, 20th Century Fox, 68 min. Director Maury Dexter (THE DAY MARS INVADED EARTH, MARYJANE) helmed this ultra-rare, ultra-low budget knock-off of American Internationals successful BEACH PARTY. Lead teens Bobby Vinton, Patricia Morrow and Jackie DeShannon (a then-regular on TV pop show "Shindig!" and soon to become a sixties pop idol herself) cavort on the beach to the sounds of The Routers (featuring Scott Walker!) and The Astronauts. Shot in colorful black-and-white with back-projected waves for that ultra-realistic beach ambience! NOT ON DVD!

THIS JUST IN...East Coaster 'TravelingJones' caught flipping sand out West today at the Mission Tiki Invasion! SsweeetT time out the black-top and sunny Drive-in surfing the crowds today! Suprise! Suprise!
The Ohana basking about like seals and sea lions of a beautiful secluded cove of the Golden State!

Technically, I was 'working' the crowd while on travel assignment. An extremely pleasant suprise to meet and match, so many faces and voices to thier usernames! Tiki tOny, King Kukulele, C'Al, Mr.Smiley & inkylouise, Mai Tai and Coco Loco, Kirby, Chongolio, Mean Gene, BongoFury, Cult of the Eye, and as I had to depart the event... in rolls Tiki Diablo to deliver the show stopping, jaw dropping - Tiki 'popcorn' mug!

Meeting all kanes & wahines today was THE HIGHPOINT of my second week on the road USA! Would love to embellish upon the warm, yet brief conversations today...but I will just leave it, as is... a wonderful time.

Great time at the Tiki Invasion event, the organizers, the entertainment and all the folks that shared their time with me...Chokest Mahaloz!

Shaka Y'aLL!!!

Viva Kate!

We had a blast today -- great vendors, great food, nice weather, great entertainment ... but just one dilemma. I thought we were told BYOB, and then at the end of the night the ATF showed up and was walking around writing people up who had BYOB and had open containers. Thank god for that guy who was running through the parking lot warning everyone; he certainly saved us from a ticket. That really put a damper on the evening and made us and many more just take off during the Muffs and miss the movies.

Such great live music ALL through the day definitely made it worth the $20 GROG had to pay to get in. GROG bummed because
GROG didn't pick up THE 88 cd. Nice meeting those of you GROG
didn't know before, and good seeing those of you GROG already
