Welcome EJKorvette and that was a very enjoyable intro. post. I especially like this:

Quote:

Greetings! I can't believe that there is a whole community devoted to Tiki! I thought I was the only one who liked it and the whole retro thing that goes with it.



I think a great many people can relate. I know a while back when I was scouring record bins at thrift stores looking for anything "exotic," "tropical," "polynesian pop," or just plain weird, I thought I had a special, one-of-a-kind obsession. The day I searched the net a while and found this particular oasis ... it was the end of innocence.

Welcome vegasguy, come on in and have some fun.
How long you been in Vegas? Do you know what happened to all the Tropicana Hotel tikis in the late 90's?
Glad to have you on board.

It seems that everyone wanted to capitalize from the greatness that tiki has always been. Although it seems nobody wants to go to next level of greatness that Donn Beach had envisioned. I and a partner have acquired the Don the Beachcomber name rights (Not an easy thing done! Believe me) and will be opening a DTBC restaurant in Las Vegas 2006. The following year we are in talks to open in North Carolina. We are going to do our very best to preserve Donn Beach’s vision of greatness, although with the artistic vision we are also involving a great business plan (which is something that Donn Beach lacked and was taken advantage for it.)

Hi! I'm a tiki neophyte, introduced to Tiki Central by my dear friend Sweet Daddy Tiki. I like tacky, kitschy gewgaws, surf music, loud fabrics and sweet, fruity/creamy drinks that come in novelty containers (so, really, this seems like the perfect place for me!)

Welcome aboard LavaCakes. Just ignore everything rodeotiki says. I'd just like to point out that LavaCakes' name is in reference to the fabulous birthday cake she made me this year:





Not only was it incredibly detailed, but she gave all the teddy graham islanders their own backstories!

Hi all,

I'm a game designer that's been into Tiki for years, and I'm looking forward to talking with other people here on the forums into the whole Tiki scene.

Lavacakes, that cake looks fantastic! Hopefully it was enjoyed by all...though for some reason it looks like a cake that's just begging to be eaten with your fingers and not a fork! But that's just me...

Evan, I'm glad you liked Big Kahuna Reef! I was a level designer for it, and I made all the sound effects for it too. My favorite sounds to make for BKR were the Tiki Totem getting to the top and the Tiki chant sounds when you finished a level. If you liked that one, we made another called Big Kahuna Words with the same theme, but a word game...

Anyway, cheers!

Ion

Hey all.. yet another new person joins the list. I'm from outside Philadelphia (yeah, not exactly the tiki capitol of the world) and am relatively new to tiki collecting (just started about 6 months ago). I'll be adding/updating my collection on OogaMooga soon, and look forward to learning more from you regulars.

Mahalo.
