Hey Babalu - that's funny, real funny. You're a real wise guy.

This is what YOU look like -

Jesus, Babalu! You need to lay off the sauce, man. Anyone down for an intervention chop?

BUZZY, PLEASE SAY YOU WERE KIDDING!!



Billybobaloo: No, I was serious. However, things have been settled, CHANGES TO THE CHOP HAVE BEEN MADE, and the chop will be better than before. Read on for my explanation…


I’m glad all of you are so interested in making this event at Tiki Oasis a successful and memorable one. I’m also glad that there are people like Cammo who have been working for months trying to make this event happen by coordinating ALL of the aspects of this carving village.( And, I’d like to mention he did all this pretty much on his own. We just all nodded yes when he told us what the newest plan or idea for the chop, and he would call us back a couple days later and say he made it happen. ) Additionally, I’d like to especially thank everyone who has ever come to or been involved with us at one of our San diego Chop events since the very first event at Mieko’s house last November. We’ve had seven or eight of these events so far with the attendance ranging from 10 to about 25 people( and Clysdalle, the eating machine). The format and spirit of these events have been informal. Everyone is invited and everyone contributes what he or she can at the time for the collective well being of all. When Cammo came up with the idea of taking or show on the road to Tiki Oasis and be the central attraction of a Carving Village, we all thought that would be great. We wanted to exhibit how a bunch of burnouts and losers could come together and make tikis together, and hopefully inspire our guests to follow in our footsteps and organize chop events in their areas. It’s no small surprise that the San Diego carving and tiki art scene have been exploding lately. There are some amazingly talented artists here, and we all inspire, push, and help each other. We are the future of tiki, like it or not. There are many differing views on what the definition of tiki is in a historical context, but we, the current American producers of tiki art are in the process defining what tiki will be in the future. When people look back on tiki a few decades, hopefully they will find that in their historical references, the true heyday of tiki came about in 2008, when carving clubs sprouted up around America, after a group of friends from SoCal got together and held a carving jam.
I kind of got side tracked there so I’ll try to get back on topic, sorry…
So, some of my friends from the core group of the chop guys were wondering why I pulled out of the event earlier…Sorry it took me so long to get back to some of you and then post my explanation here, but first I’d like to thank some of the people who have nothing to do with the planning or organization this event for weighing in on the matter. It seems those who know the least have the most to say…
With that, I’ll try to make this brief:

I’ll admit it, I originally pulled out of this event because of issues with my enormous ego. I will not be upstaged by anyone, ever, nor will I even share the spotlight for a moment with others, and I feel like not only myself, but most of the whole group of original chop guys are being upstaged in our own house, at our own party. I threw a big tantrum, used a lot of bad words, and threatened to take all my logs and go home, and I got my way in the end.

This started the whole mess, in my opinion:

In all my wacky Girl Power fervor, I told Cammo, as not to interfere with the integrity of the event, that I would spend the whole weekend carving in go-go boots. Just wanted to prove the point that women can do anything men can do, and yes, we can do it in heels.



And this didn’t help:

So the girls are trying distract the focus of the event to themselves by looking hot. None of the guys in attendance at Tiki Oasis will watch interesting things like me carve a tiki in ten minutes or less, Babalu do that Peyote spinning carving windmill thing, Clysdalle eat, or Tikidav, the freaky robot perfect tiki making machine in action, because they will be watching chicks carve in inappropriate carving attire. This is sexy, but plain and simple discriminating sexism, and it was not going to happen on my watch. Not in the house that I helped build.
Rather than get all the guys pissed off at me and demand a dress code for the ladies, I decided to make all the ladies in attendance happy and carve in chick friendly attire:














Ladies, come check out Buzzy, The Sexiest Tiki Carver Alive, carving in his naughty nautical themed outfit at the Tiki Oasis Carving Village.

Never has my star shined so bright! I’ll have autographed color postcards of this new promo shot for sale for the ladies and you can take of picture of yourselves sitting on my lap for an extra dollar.


Oh yeah, the other change I had insisted on was no more 30 minute individual seminars. It’s just like the regular chops where we all just sit around talking and working, Clysdalle eating, our visitors wandering around and asking questions of whomever they want at whatever time they want, and our guest carvers carving side by side with us while we all help each other discover the joy of carving.

If any of you respond to this, could you please not hit “quote”. Just write “Re: Buzzy said…“ instead so we do not have to see this long post over and over. But please, leave the picture, because I cannot get enough of that.

Buzzy (was) Out!

Master Buzz,

I'm sure that you will be following the "A" number "one" rule of the the "House of Buzz"...Safety First! Hard hat and breathing mask are standard issue as you well know.

Hmm? Maybe I could wear a gourd.

Holy Hula, Buzzmaster! We're really glad you're back, I mean, you know, all us guys are really impressed, I mean, you know what I mean, ah...

Um, can we get a pose from Kate & Cheeky & Hiltiki & all the gals now too? The GAUNTLET is DOWN!

And yes, I had always planned on carving the whole weekend in bathing suit and linen shirt, but they sure as heck ain't as short as Buzzy's shorts! Whose are????

No way Cammo, you're not gonna get a pose from me! There's no way I'm risking Buzzy, Buzzin' out of this event!

I didn't mean any harm nor was it my intent to detract from the Native Chop in any way whatsoever. Carving in the go-go boots was intended in the spirt of fun and in theme of the oasis (Tiki-A-Go-Go).

Buzz, you've imparted way too many tips and knowledge on me--that is worth more than 1,000 go-go boots!
Really, Buzz, I owe you big time!

For what it's worth, my chopping outfit was going to be vintage Mrs. Brady Bunch Style Pink & White Paisely number with a pair of white go-go boots, nothing sexy or revealing.

And put me down for 2 post cards.

Well, there's not much I can say that will top the previous posts. I only want to express that I do not have enough words in me to keep a 30 minute carving demo going for much longer than.......oh let's say.......about 30 seconds. Trust me, I'm REALLY bad at it.

I would much prefer to just carve, and if any observers have questions or comments, I'd be very happy to chit-chat with them. I feel that this would be a much better angle to take, despite the fact that it's going to be quite challenging with all the girls in their sexy go-go boots running around distracting me.

My question is will I be uninvited if I do not do said 30 minute demo?

I kind of think we're all doing one big demo all weekend long. People are welcome to come and go as they please. If they have questions about what we're doing, they are more than welcome to ask. Plus, when I feel I'm on the spot or being watched I tend to babble on and on anyway.

Again, it's just like every other Chop. There are always new people or friends of the folks who are carving who just come to hang out and watch. We do these little demos every single month. We carve. People ask questions. We explain what we're doing.

If Otto would like us to commit to being present in the village at a particular time or times, I'm completely cool with that (as long it doesn't interfere with my shopping plans.)

And Buzzy, my boots were so totally made for carving.

HEY, HEY, HEY!!!! I didn't want a picture of me up here like that. That thing is grotesque and HUGE.

Look at my hand. Looks like I hit my hand with the mallet. However, I did not. God gave me the big hand to swing my mighty mallet.

Dave, every swing of the mallet will be counted towards the 30 minutes. If you have to stop carving to talk about tiki carving then you are out of luck. The mallet MUST be in motion and aiming for the chisel that is poised against the log.
