Ha! Hi guys...

Yeah, I guess I do look pretty different these days. I think my buddy Heath was dissappointed we no longer BOTH looked like a couple of deranged civil war veterans.

I've been trying to live healthier: Tai Chi, jogging everyday, lifting weights, sparring w/some boxers at the gym and mixed martial @ friend's pivate dojo. Alot of things changing in my life lately for the better.

Not too shabby for 43, which I hear is the new 33! (Rediculous).


Hey Ben, here's that old box you convinced me not to chuck in the bay. Not perfect but a great excersise in Maori style detailing. Those fern patterns are so important to the culture they show up everywhere.

AHHHH-Baloney eyes!

Thanks 4 da kind woids fellas!
Koa Tangaroa on its way to Minnesota! Aloha little fella.


So my Seaforth Memorial Tangaroa may end up taking up permanent residence at THE LANDING, once a large Squared mid century a-frame, now a mediterranian eyesore. Truns out a good buddy is great friends with the owner.
The tapa pattern on the pedistal is based upon structural elements photographed at the doomed architectural gems prior to demolition.

Holy Moly... Puter died this mornin AGAIN. Only spent seven hours on phone with Bagladesh to fix. Needed a new Memory stick. Same thing happened exactly a month and seven days ago. Of course my one month warrenty had expired last week. grumblegrumble...

Hahaha!!! More pics??? No way Ben. Somebody told me I was on the top ten picture whore list I immediately got selfconcious. " ...am I a shameless self promoter? I used to hate those kind of guys..." You know somebody actually posted a sign on the fence of poor out of business Solai Bamboo on Morena Blvd saying they HAD MOVED TO ANOTHER LOCATION which turned out to be another well known tiki store. Man thats some big brass ones, eh?

So bro, where can I get one of those groovy hook knife sets for my students? I've got a dude who's kookoo for cocopuffs and is gonna ruin all my blades before he even has a chance to cut off a finger with one of his very own knives. You gonna get some of those thinner flexy ones let me know I'll take a grip! Hows FLA?

Thanks Kinny. Tryin to attract the Betties. You gots Betties 4 me in Long Beach? Everybodies telling me to dye my hair too. Cripes. I dunno. I earned every bit of this damn grey and everybody knows all the alpha gorillas are always the ones with the silver hair!

I still mean to come up to visit KinnyCave but these new seventy hour weeks are really cramping my social life. I keep expecting to pass myself on the walk from the bay to the beach! I haven't been able to box, run or kayak in ages and excersise is important for my noggin... But I got to hang a youth art exhibit in Carmel Ranch yesterday with my friend Chaz Bot and I only had to get up at five to do it. Fun, But think I'm gonna send ETR to carve exhibition at the Hanohano Outrigger Luau. He's better than me anyway and feakier. besides I'm bushed.
