So Mr. Tiki shows up and he was kind of insisting that he play on the new Crazed Mugs album. We tried him on guitar and uke - but he sucked. So I gave him a part to play on percussion and he did pretty good. Here's a rough clip of the last minute or so of Mr. Tiki jamming with me on the song "Bamboo Ben."

We're definitely gonna keep the part and he'll get the album credit.

If you're a facebook hater - then you can see it on our YouTube Channel as well.

Mr. Tiki was kind of surly - I think he felt bad that it wasn't perfect - but we'll fix that, like everything else - in the mix. Also, he was a bit beat from the travel but he got a lot of rest here.

When he left today he was pretty stoked about being on the project and not being hungover like all the other places he's been so far. I think it was pretty refreshing for him.

While I was walking through the dessert island garden adjacent to the Tiki bar I'm caretaker of, Sparky's Grotto West in West Seattle, Washington, I came across something new amid the flotsam and jetsam.







I was about to pick up Mr. Tiki II but one of those big and ornery and hungry late season mosquitoes we get in West Seattle grabbed him and flew off.







Fortunately Mr Tiki II wiggled out of the mosquito's clutches and landed in Sparky's neighbor's yard. The neighbor is a real nice mountain gal who makes organic juice or something like that in a shack at the back of her property. She gave Mr Tiki II a sample.






I took Mr Tiki II inside Sparky's where I have my "studio" in the basement. I showed him a bunch of unfinished Woofmutt Stuff & Junk like that.







Then I took him into Sparky's Grotto West and gave him a place of honor to check out the joint. Tiki Bar Rat (an old war buddy of Sparky's childhood pet rabbit Thumper) came in and I introduced them. Tiki Bar Rat traveled a lot during the war and I figured the two of them could go over places they'd been. I left the travelers to shoot the ship and headed back to the studio to do some procrastinating. That was a mistake.







Tiki Bar Rat offered Mr. Tiki II a Coconaut, but it was a trap!








Apparently a rum induced flashback had Tiki Bar Rat convinced that Mr. Tiki II was the enemy. Things got pretty weird and dark real fast.






Holy crap! Tiki Bar Rat has really gone off the deep end! Who will save Mr. Tiki II?

(I'm too busy posting useless crap on Tiki Central and can't really help him out.)

Holy Crap is right! Our only hope is that you can renew the prescription for Tiki Bar Rat's psych meds before it's too late!

Mr tiki showed up at my house yesterday after his escape from that rat thing.
We will be going on an adventure around the hood tomorow and then back to the Bamboo Grove of Westwood for an art jam and then dinner and cocktails.

How convenient for him that he came for a visit after all your recent construction work was done.

Mr Tiki has been at my house for a couple of days now. We are still waiting for a break in the weather so we can go on neighborhood adventure.
while hes here I'm letting him stay in my studio, look at him trying to blend in with the other art,



I let him try his hand at watercolor. I don't think its his favorite medium, he has a tendency to over work it.
My two pieces of advice were, "leave the white spaces, they are your highlights" and " you should be able to paint your smallest details with your biggest brush" needless to say he thinks I'm full of it.



My dad was just here to help me put new french doors in the dining room. Of course Mr Tiki successfully avoided helping with the construction but was on hand for the furniture arranging critique.





I suggested cocktails and he said he would play bartender



I was a little nervous having him dig around in the bar its where I keep a lot of my super cool mid century glassware.

while he did manage to make a fine round of drinks he was really distracted by the fact that i had a large taxidermy game fish on my couch.
whatever dude!


It only took the one cocktail and he was drunk enough to tell Rufus some off color joke

It must have been really bad judging by the look on Rufus' face.

Mr Tiki is currently looking out waiting for the crappy weather to clear up enough for him to go outside. He didn't bring a raincoat OR an umbrella.
So as soon as it clears a bit we will be going down to the beach for a dogventure, maybe a ferry ride across Puget Sound.

Oh crap - That NW weather may have caused the fist Mr. Tiki to commit tikicide. Get him out of there quick - I hear that the Great Lakes are having some better weather

The first Mr Tiki dissappeared in the NW? I did not know that.

Theres a reason Mr Tiki #2 ended up at my house. Its always a swanky tropical mid century paradise here regarldess of the weather.

and BY THE WAY.... didn't the news this morning say that the midwest was poised to get the worst weather in 70 yrs. ?

any way doesnt matter, hes headed south like a snowbird.

But not before we go down the street to the beach and see eagles, baby seals and Orcas, and maybe dig a hole in the sand play on the swings by the ferry dock and have a really good neighborhood espresso.
