I didn't want to overstay my welcome at the so I controlled myself just enough NOT to ask to hear a sample from Truus De Groot's highly anticipated third solo exotica release. Let me tell you the self restraint was tough as you all know I'm sick for tunes.

The only Dutch Masters I'll be sampling this winter will be poorly rolled and filled with scrap tobacco. So, while I wait like the rest of the world, there's always Truus' first two discs which I enjoy greatly, spin often and recommend.

Since you positively NEED THESE DISCS in your collection anyway, why not treat yourself or someone you rub to a Special Holiday set of both Musotica AND Rancho Exotica repackaged to include creepy-cool Salton Sea photos as well as classic Bosko illustrations... Autographed by the artist herself?

Of course the packaging is merely a bonus! The real treat is for your ears as Truus' unique blend of urgent loping rhythms, industrial-ambiance and childlike melodies snake like whisps of smoke to the furthest edges of American Exotica.



Muzotica & Rancho Exotica SET Autographed $20.99 *** SOLD ***

Eenie, meenie, miney Moai... Which Artist-X will Omar buy?

One of our best customers makes some tough decisions in the Grotto!


Not many of this X's work for ACME remain. A legendary dude who I've recounted my first chance meeting with elsewhere on this thread. So, I've narrowed it down to a few likely suspects including Rockin' Jellybean, I mean how many little skinny cats wear a wrestling mask in public. No contest right?

Oh well, just a few moai spice jars left so swoop in ye locals!

OK the Pan-Cultural Consumption Cycle is almost over...



Just take a deep breath with me and get your bearings. Christians should be wrapping presents right about now, Jews are already giving them and African Americans are gearing up for Kwanzaa. All is right in holiday illusion world.

Whether you get money from Santa or Gelt from Grandma, the Kwanzaa of Obama is THE perfect moment in history to expand your Exotic Ports of Call rumpus room to include a few curios from the "Dark Continent". Sure it couldn't be further from Hawaii but it's as good a place as any to start your international carving collection.

Oh? Don't got one?

Too bad.

Cuz it's down the street at your local swap meet unappreciated as being not tiki enough for some people's swell tropical den or jungle love pad. I must admit I've always been torn by appreciation for both original native culture and its culturally insensative plastic pop bastard. I don't know whether to blame Art College or WITCO so I'm just going to stop tearing. I dig it all maybe you will too. For a great while I have wondered how items from various points along the voyage of forced African diaspora would be received here. I guess I'm gonna find out.

Relax! I'm talking about the American illusions: Donn Beach's Carribean... the Saints, Jamaica, Cuba (my mom lives close enough to Cuba to be a GOP VP nominee) with maybe just one teenie little Marcus Garvey rap on the side.

As an artist I can assure you you can learn things from the undeniably talented carvers of Nairobi, Zimbabwe and the Congo.
(as well as being the best place to find really sweet leopard pelts).



When I can spoil myself I buy up any inexpensive carving that I like or might learn something from irregardless of ethnology.

Does this make me less Tiki than thou?

Absolutely.

*** HEAVY HISTORY *** WARNING *** GRAPHIC ILLUSTRATIONS *** HANK AFRICA ***



Quote:
Seriously...



Over three hundred years, eleven million or more people from diverse cultures throughout Africa were relocated against their will to the Americas. Some enslaved to work making rum which in turn was traded for... more slaves. In 1767 Caucasian Slavers could trade 130 gallons of Rhode Island rum for one African male, 110 for an adult women and 80 for a young girl.


Now, It wasn't always Europeans jumping out of bushes with nets...
As long as 3500 years ago African kings scoured newly conquered lands enslaving fellow Africans...seeking out artists and craftsmen to glorify his kingdom with their talents.


Of course the first European traders didn't value the most talented carvers and weavers in all of Africa. They just wanted someone else to bring the damn tea.

Many slaves having never seen the ocean before would spend three weeks or more lying chained in pitching seas tormented by captors who's language they could not understand. Usually English. The Colonies needed labor to build a nation and it's capitol from which slave owners might better pen self-evident truths.


Very heavy stuff. American STUFF. NOT just African American STUFF. Caucasian America, like one half of a DNA helix will alway be connected to THIS UGLY AMERICAN STUFF...

America has finally chosen an African American as President, # 44. Exactly forty four years since the bodies of James Chaney, Andrew Goodman, and Michael Schwerner were pulled from the mud. The same year this quaint brochure was printed... the ebb of TIKI.

Do we really get a second crack at Camelot?
Will it be a Camelot where everybody gets their own damn tea?


As Americans regardless of our tone, we share the ugly road of the past as well as the road of possibilities. If I am permitted a wish this year for Christmas, Hannukah and Kwanzaa is that we never forget what we've gone through to get to this very moment, and that we have learned.

Whoa!!!! That was bumpier than the Matterhorn, huh?

Hey, I'm not trying to depress you man. Jeez stop throwing up already. Was the middle to mushy, the end too violent, or both?

Look, That's America's past & you're stronger than you think.

African culture flourishes anywhere it is persecuted, absorbing local traditions and creating itself anew without loosing the thread of heritage. You watch... Kwanzaa has arrived.

I grew up in a city with nearly 50% African American population, PhillyYo, preferred the African owned Pagano's to Geno's or Pat's Steaks and was welcome in the fascinating voodoo bodegas of the southwest where huge caucasian thugs are afraid to get out of their cars.
I KNOW black is beautiful,
I KNOW Mumia is innocent and
I KNOW you'll dig adding a little African flavor to your home oasis.
Already got some leopard print? See youre already on your way...


A most well deserved Kwanzaa to you my friends.
Survival against all odds is truly something to celebrate.

"Some folks is even whiter than me
Some folks is even blacker than me
I got myself caught in the middle somewhere
And that's just where I want to be

Talking bout the inside too..."

Hank:

Just change the text to all CAPS, use the N-word a couple times, blame Replublicans/Democrats/Unions for everything and that post will be perfect for this:

You should, like, teach a class or something...

Yeah while I'm at it I'll just change the bible to give Jesus a monster truck and a mullet.

Are you drunk? Naked skinhead weddings? Homosexual Santas? Hobo Porn... what kind of link is this you crazy bastard! I keep forgetting you nearly cut your own head in half with a chainsaw.

My eyes are burning now.

And while I've no accreditation in CA yet, I don't really need much. Just my single subject credentials and I'm back in High school again shaping young minds... Hey, we should totally do it together! Shake & Bake brother! I could teach an introduction to race relations class and you could, like, teach people how to carve their name into their desk. It'll be groovy. Bring over your Degree and lets brainstorm.

Buzz, I really can't thank you enough for your support and enthusiasm over the years, basically because you've given so little, but Freaky Boutiki wish you a joyous Christmas and a prosperous new year non the less. lol

Please buy Kiva some roast beef from Unkle Hank.
