I only remember this one, were there more?

I was watching Fear and Loathing... again, this time I noticed this scene:


Bahooka!


Heeeeeeerrrrrrree's Johnny!

That staue is the sea god. Here is a better shot of him.


The man who carved the sea god for this movie was Lewis Van Dercar he is in the Book of Tiki there is a thread about him if you are interested:

So weird! I own a '63 Comet 260V8 (in foreground) I bought it in Hermosa Beach CA 2004 (took it to Caliente Tropics on that trip for an extended test drive!) and stored it over that winter in SLO with friends (Christine Salon DeLux) before driving across USA on Route 66 to Chicago in 2005. Shipped it home to the UK. Whilst in SLO visited the stuff-o-rama store, of course! Serendipity???

Thanks for posting the still, stuff-o-rama, I have always wanted a pic of the Comet from that movie. Now I need the one from 'Every which way but loose'!!!

Okey-Dokey -

I've been going nuts this past week with nostalgia while watching the first season of Hawaii 5-O on DVD. I dunno if you guys are including TV shows in this thread, but there are so many Tikis in McGarrets Hawaii that I'd be posting frame grabs till the end of time!
Anyway, wanted to share a few of my favorites - I got this mug at an art fair a while back:



Standard Koa souvenir mug. Really like the inscription:
"Al Minn's Fun Camp - 1972
Best All-Around Camper
Clarke Bennett"

I'd like to think we should all strive to be a Best All Around Camper in our day-to-day lives. Imagine my delight when we get a glimpse into a 1968 pawn shop on 5-O:



Yes! My mug's brothers and sisters! All brand-sparkly new!

And while not tiki related, here is another mind blowing Hawaii scene for me:



This is the Makai Research Pier at Makapuu (across the street from Sea Life Park) under construction! Anyone who has taken a drive around Oahu is sure to remember this pier. Very bizarre for me to see being built as my dad's office is on the end of this pier, and I practically grew up on the thing (I was born the year my Koa Mug was inscribed - 1972).

Thanks for peeking -

Henrik "VanTiki"

Don't think the Hawaiian place in Baker Boys has a name. It is not the Starlite Lounge, where the story sets off. But Frank demonstrates his lingual skills when he rounds up the show:
- Waca Waca Maca Waca. Which means "Paddle Home Safely".

Aaaaah, I just went down T.C. thread memory lane, thanks for digging that up. What a great example of TCers collaborative effort in researching the work of an obscure, unappreciated outsider artist that was related to Tiki. Benzart's stories, the statues in Wayne's backyard, all these links...this is gotta be one of my favorite TC threads ever. An example of how just one strange piece of art can unearth a whole forgotten world of bizarre wonder. Someone should make a book about Van, something to hold in your hands other than just virtual images.

I've seen Pagan Island on DVD and enjoyed it thoroughly. Not too much of a story, but at least three scenes with this lovely maiden dancing around in front of a very strange tiki god.

A friend turned us on to the original 1956 'A Kiss Before Dying' starring Robert Wagner and Joanne Woodward. Seems like all the exteriors were shot here in Tucson and there's a scene in the Pago Pago......


The waiters wore some cool threads....and those wall lamps look sweet.



Interesting place mat/napkin.


Nice neon.


Nice murals.

So that's the Pago Pago. Long gone, but available for viewing thanks to your local friendly video store (or Netflix). Thank you Hollywood.

"Attack of the Beast Creatures"...this was made in the mid-80's I believe, and while the designs are not EXACTLY tiki as we know it, there is in fact a very unusual tiki in this film. It belongs to the 6-inch-tall red chattering monsters that inhabit the island and attack any human that wanders along...if you go to the page below you will find a good review and also pictures, including a picture of the famous scene showing all the little 6-inch monsters kneeling and praying in front of their 3-foot-tall deity statue. (!) It is really a moment of jaw-dropping strangeness.

This is a bad, bad movie, no doubt about that, but there is nothing quite like it.

So they are sect members and polygamists, but are the Utah families in HBOs Big Love also secret Tiki worshipers?
In the Bill Hendrickson (Bll Paxtons) supply store Home Plus, hey have a rather jolly tiki for sale in the garden department.



And his eldest son have a tiki mug on the desk in his room.



They haven´t started showing the second season in Norway yet, but I understand that their square neighbours (square from a polygamist point of view) even has a tiki bar in their back yard.



Doesn´t exactly look like a fun and wild Luau. So what is this? The Grumpy Church of Latter Day Tikis?
