Aloha, I have been reading Tiki Central for a couple of years now (and have even been the subject of a post here...see the post by Tangaroa on the tikis at Marineland in Rancho Palos Verdes.) Just wanted to start posting and spread a little of my knowledge. By the way, if you are interested in Disneyland and other theme park images, checkout my blog: http://matterhorn1959.blogspot.com/

Matterhorn1959 has an AMAZING Disneyland and theme park collection! Anyone interested in these subjects really should check out his blog - he's a great guy too... Some collectors hoard their stuff - not this guy, he's always been glad to share.

Aloha to all,

I'm brand new to TC but have been collecting tikis for 5 or 6 years. I just recently started collecting mugs and I am totally addicted. I live in Huntington Beach and have made many trips to Oceanic Arts over the years to drink in all that is tiki. I also met Bamboo Ben and Mrs Bamboo last weekend and they are truly fantastic people. I look forward to my time on TC.

Okole Maluna,

Freaktiki13

Delicado, you may just have to look a bit harder, and there may be more on the way.

Tiki Fink here. In Denver Colorado. The Tiki scene is pretty dismal here. We had Tiki Boyd's and it recently closed to look for a new location. As for me I am proud to reveal that I carry the Tiki Torch in my own way with a pretty way out Tikiriffic home Tiki Bar on the patio of a very dialed in midcentury modern home in Krisana Park.

Howdy all!

Here's How!!!

Hello, I am new to the site, but not to tiki. I am a chainsaw wood carver, and have carved many tikis, and have several on dispalay at my tiki bar. If someone can tell me how to post a photo on this site, I'll put them on here to share. They may not be the best looking tikis, but I like them since I was the one who carved them.

Hi ParrotHead - welcome to TC - it's a warm and friendly place. I'm a newbie here too.

1st - check out anything (any post) by "benzart" and "bamboo ben" and "basement kahuna" and "kirby" and ... well there is a bunch of very proficient carvers on this site.

2nd - to post pictures, get your picture up to some website (not this one, unfortunately). There's a FAQ about this. I have my own website and I use FTP to get a picture up there, then in the post here, use this syntax:

[ing]http://location.where.your.picture.is.com[/ing]

This will cause your picture to appear in your post at this location in the text.

I used "ing" in the example above, because if I had put "img" (The right thing to put there), this BBS would try to locate the picture and display it. Of course this website: "http://location.where.your.picture.is.com" does not exist.

Check out the "help/faq" link at the top of every page on this website, for more info.

Now let's see some of your stuff!

What are you talkin about? You gotta Trader Vics! That's pretty cool. I wish I had one near me...

Ok, I just posted this message in the Tiki Bingo thread:

http://www.tikiroom.com/tikicentral/bb/viewtopic.php?topic=10223&forum=1#217634

Yeah... exciting, huh?

Anyways, I thought I'd make it official by posting in the New User thread. Been reading this forum for a couple of years. I'm from Houston - not exactly a mecca for Tiki. LOL Anyways, I do have a minor collection of Trader Vic stuff from the old Trader Vic's that used to be in the now demolished Shamrock Hotel which I will post soon.

I do have a home bar, but is it more Urban Redneck than Tiki. Probably, prime for a makeover one of these days but I can't bear to part with the current collection of old license plates, oil field signs, beer logos and stuff like that.

This is a great site and I love the friendly atmosphere here. There really are a bunch of great people here and tons of talented artists.

So, thanks to all you existing members for all the great posts over the years!

Aloha everybody! As a new member, I would like to introduce myself and say how incredible it is to be part of Tiki Central. I admit that I am a rookie at writing in forums but I couldn't resist when I came upon Tiki Central. I caught the tiki bug years ago and haven't looked back! Carving wood and rum drinks are my thing...Cheers!
