What a weekend .... much of the weekend went by in a glassy haze, as there was plenty of glitter, glamour, and much beauty that glimmered in the night.

I should state that Catherine D'Lish was much better on the first Friday evening, but it was nice to hear her sing, in a very Julie London-like fashion, on Saturday. I was as equally impressed as Vintagegirl with Chicago's Lavender Cabaret, and don't forget that the Wau Wau Sister's 'Sister Christine' routine also featured a bit of stigmata. There were plenty of high moments that more than made up for some of the weaker acts.

Directly across the street from Sunday's Tease-O events was a flea market, and there I found a framed print of the 'Don the Beachcomber' map of the Pacific .... the same one on page 68 of the BOT. Probably a repro, but that was perhaps my favorite image in the book for this Geography major.

I was able to make it over to Tiki Ti on Thursday evening - I think I had four drinks there, one of them I had served in the take-home Tiki Farm 'Giant Ku' mug. Earlier I had finally bought a Sven 'Book of Tiki' mug from WACKO, so now I even have more reasons to drink at home. Plans to visit Disneyland were altered, and instead a friend and me drove down to Sam's Seafood on Monday afternoon, and almost left without discovering the back rooms where the shows are held. I was a bit mystified though as to how a drink with the manly 'Rum Barrel' name can be served in a tall, stemmed, and more dainty fluted hurricane type glass. Sam's was impressive though, and does deserve its 4 tiki rating.

I also made it to Oceanic Arts, where I purchased both a Volcano Bowl, and a 4 foot long wood carving (a hunter standing in a canoe, hunting a shark) that is currently being shipped home, as I await nervously, wondering if I packed it well enough.

On my final afternoon I was able to eat at both Pink's hot dog stand and L.A.'s airport's 'Encounter' restaurant, and later viewed the airport security people as they opened my luggage, in their quest to discover exactly that odd-shaped item was - evidently they don't x-ray many ceramic volcano bowls.

The trip also included a few martinis at the Dresden Room while Marty and Elayne performed, some thriftin (a LP of "Savage! - Tihati's South Seas Spectacular", some old beach beauties type drinking glasses), a viewing of 'Kill Bill', and brief meetings with several Tiki Centralites.

All in all, a good trip. It was a good combination of Tiki and Burlesque, and my only regret is that I wish I could remember more of what all happened, and that I wasn't able to spend more time talking with more of the tiki central people.

...who is pee-girl...?



If I told you She would have to Pee on you!

It's a secret revealed only to "Tiki Socialites". If you ever reach that exalted level your eyes will be opened in a rite involving a certain specialty drink sold by
atomictonytiki.

Being that she was onstage for the Casino Royale portion of a legendary event called Mondo Tiki, I think the name Pee Girl is quite fitting for a Bond villainess.

Hmmm....

James Bond = The Man With The Golden Gun.

Pee Girl = The Girl With The Golden Showers(?)

I wish I knew that so many Tiki-Centralites were into burlesque! I performed on Saturday night with Fisherman's Famous Burlesque at Tease-O-Rama. I couldn't catch much of the Lavender's performance as I was backstage setting up, but every few minutes I'd see one of the girls dash behind the curtain for a quick costume change! Anyway, I wish I would have known that there were going to be some Tiki heads out there. I would have invited you all to our Tiki shows up in Santa Barbara and Solvang the week before... Glad to hear the positive responses to T.O.R.

That was Brian "The Fisherman" Lease. He's the vibraphonist and producer of Fisherman's Famous Burlesque. I just played the drums during our performance with Dirty Martini, Harvest Moon, and The World Famous Pontani Sisters...

Atomic......It is a life goal to achieve the Tiki Socialite status you speak of. Something tells me that your spanish phrase has something to do with that honored drink and some pee from "pee-girl".

ps tikidrummer..............Drummers rule the world!!

I had a great time at the TOR. The acts were great. I enjoyed Ginger Goldmine's Bird in a Cage act, fantastic costume and props! I also enjoyed the synchronized and beautiful performance by the Harlem Shakes. White flowing feathers against mocha skin--really spectacular.

I must admit that after standing in 4" heels for almost 5 hours my dogs were barking. I missed Dita's performance, but I have been fortunate enough to catch some of her acts before.

I did take the tassel twirling class. About 40 bare-chested women, jumping and bouncing, all trying to twirl to the right, to the left, clock-wise and counter-clockwise, it was pretty fun. One woman took to it immediately and at one point she had both arms raised high, twirling her tassels at lightning speed, all while laughing like a banshee. (what a visual huh?) She had us in hysterics. I'd give myself an "A" for effort, but alas, I could only get my tassels to swing like a pendulum. Oh well, practice makes perfect.

Johnny,

It's true: drummers do run the world. In fact, we have the ability to change the speed at which the world spins...
