I'm not realy a new member, I've changed my name. I couldn't find any rules regarding the process, so I just started a new Username. I was formerly "Captain Morgan"
My new name is in reference to my home State (of course) and I hope to see more Tiki Events up here in the North East! Tiki Central is by far the best Message Board on the Web!And I'm here all the time.

Hi,

I'm a relatively new member referred here by the fabulous Tikifish. Was known for a short time as TTenenbaum on the other board. Grew up 5 miles from the Kahiki and I miss it so.

Aloha everyone!

I was following some old conversation at Tiki Central about the artist Lewis Vandercar. I am a member of the yahoo newsgroup for Lewis_Van_Dercar.

I have uploaded quite a number of photos of his paintings & sculptures. I also have a link to my yahoo photo album. We are trying to build a repository of photos. There is also a sculpture of a large Tiki at the entrance of his Miami Studio.

You may have to type this in manually (not sure) as the link is not working right or just register at yahoo & search Lewis_Van_Dercar under groups.

Please visit,
groups.yahoo.com/group/Lewis_Van_Dercar.com

Boy, you go to Tiki Oasis, plan on getting on the Tiki Central boards right when you get home, and BAM! two months go by. Life... I tell ya....


Aloha and I am excited to be here (finally!). This is a wonderfully active board and [holds up her three middle fingers] I will promise to do my best to keep up on new posts.

A little introduction: I've chosen Haole'akamai as my screen name because I defintely feel like a foreigner when it comes to Tiki/Polynesian culture, as I've only skirted the scene, but I'm really excited to learn more and more. And I thought I'd do a little self promotion, which I hope to live up to, by adding the "witty, charming" part. [uh, yeah, by the by, if I totally screwed up the Hawaiian syntax/spelling - let me know - I'm not proud....]

If you went to TO5, you may remember me from the Best Dressed Pirate contest - I was the Pyrate CanCan Dancer. I met so many wonderful people there - freindly & fun-loving. Next year, I definitely want to stay at The Caliente Tropics; our hotel was way too far away from all the good stuff.

I'm interested in all things vintage/retro, and Polynesian Pop especially. I enjoy costumes, dancing, reading, and boogie woogie & exotica music. I have four cats and volunteer with a local animal rescue group. Halloween and my birthday are my favorite holidays. My husband & I recently bought a Craftsman house (built in 1923) that we are trying to restore to its former glory (the backyard, though will eventually be a Polynesian Paradise, w/a 57' Bocce Ball court). I am a Barrista with Peets Coffee & Tea, but I'm working on getting my credentials to become a middle school mathematics teacher.



WHOA!! Hey, didn't I say this would be a little introduction? heh heh... I better stop here....



so, hi.

Ok
this thread is huge, so hopefully someone will read it. Newbie to the board, but not new to old school fun. Grew up in Jersey, live in SC.
Influences: PUNK ROCK (Iggy, Ramones, Dolls, Clash etc)
Rockabilly, DEADBOLT, and so on.
I work at Winthrop University as the Facility Manager and Tech Director for the Music Department and as an Adjunct Professor in the Theatre Department.
I am in the process of building a 1966 GMC Pick Up and am around 90% Finished, Interior and pinstriping will be a Tiki Theme. AS it is the truck is Indigo Blue with light blue, green and pink ghost flames, side pipes.
Next Tattoo will hopefully be tiki style.
Oh shit, yea I am 40.

Rob, we do read this thread & say "Aloha!" to the new people.

With your experience in Set Design you might appreciate some of the more elaborate home bar set ups like
Ona Tiki's & Al 'n' Shell's.

You're a Deadbolt fan? You know they play here in San Diego at the Ken Club about once a month when they're not on tour? So when are you coming out?
