Hey Everybody!! My name is Scott my screename is the Sperm Whale. I attend alot of Tiki Events in the L.A. area. I collect tiki from every place I can find it. I love to go to Bahooka, Trader Vic's, Tiki Ti, and the Purple Orchid whenever I have a chance. I just attended the Tiki Beach Festival in Belmont Shores and met quite a few of you TCer's yesterday. And I look forward to meeting more of you at the HUKILAU!!

Welcome, new folks!

Hoe Wa'a, not many of us can claim THAT cool a skill - outrigger racing - Wow!!

Sperm Whale, I gotta say I LOVE that name. Love it.

EsQui, you certainly know how to make a Tiki Central entrance: posed next to a bitchin' carving you made yourself, surrounded by gorgeous, scantily-clad wahines (and a beautiful wife). You tryin' to make us jealous or somethin'? Huh? HUH??

Welcome, boys!

Howdy fellow newbies!

Max here from Houston. I'm a graphic designer and 80s music collector. I've also recently become a rabid tiki fan. In fact, this past Saturday I bought home a vintage bar and I'm building a tiki room around it. Originally I was gonna do a guest bedroom with a tiki motif but no sense in doing two rooms at once. So will work on the bedroom last.





Cheers,
Max aka DJ Mexstacy

New guy as of yesterday. Met some of you at NW Tiki Crawl. Always interested in new art. As an artist myself, I hope this can be a great new format to trade or sell some of my tiki work. People keep telling me to log on here. Hope this will help to unload piles of artwork in the closet. Love the site so far. Do you have origional art for trade?

Hey RobotParts!

Hearty welcome aboard Tiki Central! Wish you'd made yourself known before ITD (Internationla Tiki Day). Kilikopela, his wahine, and I celebrated it for Texas, with sushi and Painkillers (the liquid kind). A small, but loyal group are we.

At the risk of restarting a stupid, off-topic "discussion" (aka name-calling session), here's an old thread about the Tiki Tiki in Houston:
http://tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=7734&forum=1&start=0

They KEEP taunting me with "it's gonna be next week" about the opening!!! AArgh! They said that the week before ITD, even (which always falls 2nd Saturday in August)!

Email me and let's meet up for a cocktail sometime.

BTW, if you got that fab bar here in town for cheap, i hate you, so don't bother writing......

Thanx Formikahini!

Looking forward to meeting all the Tiki Texans in the group at some point.

Yes, after a long wait the opening of Tiki Tiki was today. I will be there friday to check it out (wonder which Hawaiian shirt I should wear?).

By the way our part-time accountant at work is a great bartender (#1 student at bartending school) working a sucky job so I tried to convince him to apply at Tiki Tiki but could not. Not his scene I guess. Damn, he could have hooked me up!!!!!

Later,
Max aka DJ Mexstacy

Thanks for the welcome! Raffertiki, if I were the one at the top center of the picture I would be one happy lesbian.

Aloha! Been lurking and reading over LAWebChicks shoulder for months now; it's time to come outta the closet. After living in our home, and not being able to decide upon a common decor for several years- we stumbled over TIKI! It's fun, it's haphazard, it looks great dirty AND it hides the fact that we are packratting slobs! So, the home, and especially the recent addition of the Durukuli Lounge has made our home a vacation destination. She,(LAWebChick), is crafty and I'm artsy, so it is an on-going funfest. Just this last week, I've started carving a sign for the Lounge, and tried my hand today on an old walnut trunk.I LOVE IT! Stay tuned for more, Tim

Aloha Moneypenny,
Welcome to the world of Tiki, can't guarantee that your English will improve though, but you will grow more tikified.

Mahalo

Aloha Everyone!

I have been bitten by the Surf bug for a while now (even though I am trapped in landlocked Ohio!) and have recently gravitated toward tiki as well. Due mainly to info garned on this forum, I have transformed a portion of my basement into a tiki paradise, I have become a flea market hound on the weekends, I have purchased a ukulele and am learning to play it and have started to carve again after a few years layoff. Most of what I have carved to date are blatent copies of the works found herein (these are for my own families pleasure - never for sale!)but I am working on my own style. Keep up the great work and great comments!!
