Please tell us what that means man

Or just remind us that forget what it is.



Loosely translated meaning (because there is no exact translation)is a Buddhist chant for "I take refuge" or "taking refuge". Inner mind, inner peace. Tranquility.

Psycho Tiki D,

thanks for the translation. Some of us grew up in California with their proper skooling...

The above translation is dead wrong. "Nam Myoho Renge Kyo" is the phonetic Japanese chant of the Nichiren and Soka Gakkai(SGI) buddhists and means (roughly) I dedicate myself to the laws of cause and effect (Or "The wonderful dharma of the Lotus Flower Sutra)and promise to perpetuate good karma. As you can see from my past posts, I let some nobody get to me and once again forgot myself......I do it a lot. I'm kind of an ass.

Who won the tikis by BOSKO and Tiki Diablo?
Do you have pictures of those tikis?
I almost flew there just to get a shot at those!
I've met them both and they are two great guys.
Would have love to carve with these masters!
Not to mention Crazy Al!





Bosko contributed one of his lovely abstracty tiki masks from his booth, and Danny put one of his 12 Volcanos mugs into the auction. This was incredibly sweet of them and much appreciated by the carvers.

The fact is that the two of them, along with Benzart, taught many of the San Diego Chop Chop folks how to carve in the first place, and they are rather beloved by most of the group.

Mad props to 4WD whose tiki mask brought in more money on its own that any other item in the auction.

I failed in my duty as the official auction bookkeeper in that I wasn't able to record who purchased what. Things were going so fast, I only had time to keep track of where the money all went.

Yes, I must agree that it was most cool of Bosko and Danny to donate to our chop community. Now I feel bad for keeping the money from the mask I auctioned off. It was a nice couple from the East Bay and it was their first tiki.

Thanks a bunch to John Wood and Lila Robinwood. I hope my little carving brings you years of enjoyment and the fact that you loved it so much was very flattering, as I am still a snot-nosed little rookie.

That chop was right up in the top ten greatest times I've ever had, man.

And lastly(but DEFINATELY not leastly) A HUGE thanks to my good friend and brother, Brian (H20tiki). Without you, bro......I'd have been laying on the ground, scratching a face into a pencil, man. My weekend could NOT have happened without you!!

Nam Myho Renge Kyo!!...... Please remember I said "loosely translated"?

The chant appears in an episode of the television series The Monkees, "Mijacogeo" (1968), as a mystical chant Mickey got from a cereal box top.

Here's the thanks list, in no order at all:

Mieko for making pendants and being the on-site instructor, and lending tools and her own space out!

Buzzy for the logs and the always available help and the patented Buzzy smile. We all really owe him.

Billy Bee for being the party sensei and ripping out - what - like 63 tikis that all sold?

Lee and Alex for being the best on stage the whole weekend.

Alec & Cate at the Clairemont Ace Hardware for all the plastic and tape.

Kate who was the auction computer and got there the first day before anybody else was awake. And wore two tones of go-go boots and carried a shiny white clutch purse THE WHOLE TIME!

4WD for being the Lord of All Tiki Carvers.

Jimbo & Denise for having a great sound system and giving bus tours.

H2O for the blackstrap rum and helping with Billy. You know.

Billy's decorative wife for being the Vacation Sensei. (She just seemed to look like she was always on vacation and having a wonderful time.)

Bosko and Diablo for donating at the last minute in the spirit of the auction.

The Voice in the Sky at the auction. That was great.

Everybody who showed up, for showing up!

Otto for throwing a GREAT party and lending us his sound system. I mean, ya gotta admit, holy kabolies, it was a GREAT party.

Cheekygirl amd Melissa for helping make the lime cool-aid that kept us from getting heat stroke. And Cheeky for the room party.

Babs for being the most creative pro I've ever seen, and spending Saturday night turning out his Cthulo mask for the auction. And showing us dweebs what a REAL mug looks like.

Kennie, Bosko, Ray, Alvin and Danny for showing up and just hanging out in the heat.

Hope I didn't miss anybody cause the whole group sure worked smoothly. It was an honor to serve with you all.

Thank You!

As Buzzy wrote at the bottom of all his 8x10's,

XX OOO XXX OOOO All My Love from the House of Cam

Thanks Tiki-Kate for clearing that up.
I was hoping to see a new carving from
Tiki Diablo.
The last new carving I've seen of his is the
one he did for Oceanic Arts. (That sits there today)
And yes those guys are tops.

What were the other 9? If you can't say it here, tell us at the next Chop. Should be entertaining AND educational...

That's rad! It also appears in Jack Nicholsons "The last Detail", featuring a 19 year old Randy Quaid, in 1973.

Boy, I'll say! This is your way of letting it go, with a back-handed comment disguised as enlightenment? Tikiskip is a real cool guy, and has done a ton in the tiki community. If you'd venture beyond the creating tiki forum to read some of his posts, you'd see that as well.

Skip.........you're just making it worse. Please go play somewhere else. The sad thing here is that you don't even think you've insulted anyone.



I also see no sign of Skip diss'in you or anyone else, he's simply asking a question about the items that were offered by a couple of his favorite artists, since otherwise he would have had to fly out from Ohio to see these items. Listen to Kick The Reverb's reply, there's a lot of truth and inner wisdom in it.

To hear you bash on Skip, Crazy Al, Bosko, and Tiki Diablo is beyond intolerable. Maybe no one else here wants to say anything about it, but I will. And it's not just about their carvings, and other art that they create. Although some may elevate them on pedestal to deity size, they are actually humble, approachable guys that you can hang out and have a drink with at a party or event, and shoot the shit. And they always seem open to sharing their knowledge to others, artists or otherwise, about new techniques, recent finds, etc. In fact, Nacho was towing his Kubar home after Oasis this past Monday, when his transmission blew out. Tiki Diablo was the first guy calling transmission shops all over the Los Angeles area, and is currently letting Nacho and his buddy crash over at his place while the truck is in the shop.

Those guys have been here from the beginning. You've been here, what, 2 months now, and are starting flame wars? I think it's great that you have found something that you are impassioned about, but please, save the bashing and backhanded comments for another place.

Oh, and no, I'm not a traveller!

What, the rest of us are boring old jack-offs who turn out splinterey messes? Out of all of the tikis being chopped, sold, pimped, burned, stained, and changing hands this passed weekend(legally or illegally!), why are Bosko, Diablo and Crazy Al the only ones you care about? Broaden your horizons, man.......there were a LOT of AMAZING choppers at Oasis this year, so don't get stuck on Celeb carvers.

No, the sad thing is watching a bunch of grown men piss themselves over carvers like a bunch of little girls at an NSync concert. Saying that one carver is better than the other is like saying that grape is better than strawberry........it's all opinion. You wanna be a little carver groupie, you go ahead.


Maybe those will jogg your memory.

Why don't you take some of your own advice, and do the same?
Here's a great place to start. And might I add, way to make friends on only your second month here, dude.

There, now I'm done. Mai Tai out!!! Peace!

Nobody bashed Al Bosko, or Diablo. They are all great artists and I would never do that.

Yeah, I bashed Skip, so what? He pissed me off and I don't have to explain myself to you.

Now You're pissing me off by saying I bashed people I didn't bash.

I had let it go. Now you need to do the same.

I'm don'e with this subject.
