Aloha!

Thanks guys!! I feel pretty darn good about the results. I have another TIKI excursion planned for EARLY this Sunday morning before I hit a superbowl party. This should be EPIC!



I'm still doing research on the artist who cast this concrete gate for the HECO transformer site. I think it might be an Edward M. Brownlee...



BEST,

Phillip

Aloha,

Excursions don't always turn out as planned...

This photo is from one of the very first Tiki Treks did with TC members in like 1999-2001ish... Im kinda embarrassed I don't remember their TC Handles... Johnny Dollar?? A little help?



This Photo didn't turn out and it's the only one I have of it...



Was a picture of this taken by the peeps I took on tour? It was on the little hula stage near the food court...

Currently relocated (and most probaby temporarily) from the University of Hawaii at Manoa campus to the state capitol to protest GMO, is this carving of Haloa...

Aloha,

The Black Fly's Sunglass shop at the International Market Place has a new Tiki. I must say I do find the head most disturbing.

Aloha,

Things are well. A tour this weekend and a super lead to follow up on in Hawaii Kai! More art from the Hula Cafe on Kapahulu. This is the other side of the Column that I posted awhile back



Grrr... Im on a temporary setup as I deal with yet more computer issues... At least I'm in Paradise!

Thank you for your question. The simple answer is that this is NOT Hulagirls Central. Tiki Central CELEBRATES classic and modern Polynesian Pop.

I am personally very interested in the HISTORY of these islands and ART contained within.

I think others are too.

"Waikiki Tiki: Art, History and Photographs" is an excellent book that you should (if not already) own or at least have read.

You can get it here on Amazon

The book contains 17 years of photographs, research and collecting focused on one island of the Hawaiian chain. That is my passion. I do have other photographs that are not Tiki-related, but I choose not to post them here.

However, the 263 pages of Waikiki Tiki were not enough to include everything 'Tiki' that I photographed during that period. There are also new discoveries that deserve to be brought to your attention. This thread stays on topic and provides interesting eyecandy seen nowhere else. For instance, this stone sculpture is in Haleiwa. Ever seen it before?



best,

Phillip

Aloha,

I don't recall EVER seeing something SO dumb as this. I assure you it is not me. But gasp and laugh in wonderment at what could only be loosely termed as "filmmaking."


Must use Martin Denny to soothe mind. Filmed at Ulu Mau Village. Tiki about 2:26 in background. Really quite wonderful footage.

I dunno, Phillip. Actually I find that video so BAD, that it's GOOD !! You just can't take it seriously. It's really funny stuff... pure satire. It poses no threat to what constitutes classic Tiki-style. And where can I get one of those costumes ?? I want to wear it to Tiki Oasis and walk around with a boom box blasting Hip Hop and bust some cool moves. I'll hire Lucas Vigor to be my "character escort" just like they have at Disneyland.

But on the other hand those garishly colored Tiki's above, especially the one with the pineapple head. Now THOSE are truly horrifying !!

I was never more proud of you than when you signed this at Don Ho's Island Grill. We drank many FREE shots on them That DAY, Sir!



The Grill in better days... Closed now...


John-O... It is horrid, but...Well, it's not completely devoid of interest. There are a few moments of the 3D Tiki Glow Golf course which is now gone.

I'm looking into it for you.

Aloha,



This Brownlee Maori carving is in the Waikiki Tiki, but the shot used was from the storage room. This scan is from when it was upright at the back entrance.

Hey, I was on the
Ray Boylan Show 4/5! Was some fun talk!
