Well, hello all!

My name is Reb, And I'm from Las Vegas.

I'm also a big fan of all things Polynesian.

Here, let me give you a brief (I mean really brief) history-

Since I was a little kid, I always wanted to be from Hawaii, I love the idea of surf, and sand. Just this last year I was working outside the Enchanted Tiki Room in Disneyland. And while my fellow cast members hated the thought of it, I was so obsessed. I play a Santini Tenor Ukulele (which I picked up last February. I know it's a cheap one D: But I wanted to see if I could pick it up.) And love anything surf, Tiki, or Polynesian.

It's very nice to meet you all. I can't wait to start making some new friendships!
-Reb

As a special-event planner/designer, I know this site will be a great resource!

I love the Technicoloured wacky-tacky Tiki style. I think this stems from growing-up in Vancouver, B.C.
where the scenery is shrouded in grey drizzle five months of the year. Unfortunately, Trader Vics is no longer a bastion for those struggling through another anaemic Vancouver fall/winter, but we still have the Waldorf!

Hey TCers!

I figured it was probably time I joined in on the forums that Iíve been mooching off of for the past 5 years.

Iíve always been really into mid-century art, architecture, movies, cartoons, TV shows, guitars and cars. But I didnít fall in love with Tiki until I moved out to LA and started to frequent the Tiki Ti. Since then Iíve been steadily growing my mug collection, hitting Tiki Oasis every year, experimenting with a bit of mixology and hanging at all the So Cal Tiki bars I can make it to. TC has been a great resource and hopefully I can help contribute to the community thatís given me so much in the past few years.

Hello all,
I'm in Minnesota. I joined up, as now is the season to think of warm places where the words "black ice" and "snow emergency" do not exist. I've just started re-building a vintage mug collection that was lost to a break-up. I now scour antique and thrift shops to replace it, as well as vintage wooden items and bar-ware.

I'm also interested in all things Atomic-Era, from furniture to music. I also collect vintage vinyl and 1970s Japanese plastic robot toys.

I believe in pagan idolatry, especially the sort with gods that ply me with alcohol.

Hi everyone,

I'm Chris, I guess i just wanted to say hello to everyone, I discover this forum while I was searching the web for info's on bone carving and woaw really happy about it, therefore here I am.
What to say, I'm into Polynesian and Maori art since I met a kiwi guy who is a bone carver. And I'm really glad I met him 'cos I discover a whole new world and I get myself into bone carving, or at least I'm trying to, and bone carving really helped me, act as meditation....
I also surf and spearfish....
and of course I enjoy life....
Be water
Chris

Hello All.

I'm new to the board and wanted to say hello. I've been a tiki lover since the mid 90s. I collect tiki ephemera wherever I can find it (and whenever I can afford it!) I'm a digital artist and I've done some tiki artwork as well. My interests are pretty diverse, though primarily focused on different aspects of mid-century pop culture, so my art is all over that spectrum. I've recently started a blog where I'm writing about retro pop-culture and showcasing some of my art.

Looking forward to enjoying some good conversations here.

Hello! My name is Andy. I live in Sweden and I own a Buick Roadmaster Sedanette -47.
I am quite new to this scene, but I liked tikis all my life! I espeseally like the Moais, (just read at wikipedia that they have nothing to do with tikis..)
But they defenetly have something to do with tiki culture as I see it!
Outside my door I have a 7 foot Moai, carved from ash wood with a chainsaw. (pic will come)

Hello everyone. I'm a big fan of mid century culture, including tiki, and I've started accessorizing our house with tiki items to go with our mid century furnishings. I live in northern Virginia outside of Washington, DC. I'm also into old cars, 1960s Mercurys to be more specific.

Currently I'm in the middle of my first tiki carving project, what started out as a tulip poplar stump in our backyard. Johnny Dollar turned me on to this forum, and I'm looking forward to meeting more of you. Details of my stump carving project are on my blog.
Thanks
