Hi Everyone.

I was a fairly active poster over at the old Yahoo! board but unfortunately have only been an occasional lurker so far at the "new" Tiki Central. After alot of extensive reading here recently I feel very compelled to start contributing again to this fine community (life was a little too busy for awhile for me to hang out here). There are obviously a lot of great people here and I hope to get to know all of you eventually. So here's a little reintroduction...

My wife and I have been tiki obsessed for about 3 years now (so I guess we're still relative newbies to the tiki scene). But we've got it bad! In the last few years our house has transformed from boring and lifeless to a wild polyenesian paradise (in progress). We are serious mug collectors and I have a fairly deep knowledge of mug history. We are slowly building our own ultimate tiki abode. We also collect Shag seriously as well as other artists that we consider hip.

We live in San Diego and have tried to explore every tiki related site that we can find here. Of course, the Bali Hai and Islands are our favorite spots because of their rich history. We're also hosting a big annual tiki party at our place in late June (I'll post an invite and details as they are worked out). If there are any other TC people in San Diego, we would love to meet up for a Mai Tai anytime. Until then...Cheers!

ModMana

Hey!, I just figured out who "kooche" is (that posted messages just above in this topic). Miles, glad to know you're on the board! We love your art and hope to own an original some day soon. Keep up the great work!

ModMana, Aloha and Welcome BACK to Tiki Central! Hey, we have quite a few San Diegans here on TC. Every once in a while, we'll do an SD tiki trip to all the tiki spots - Bali Hai, Islands Room, etc. We'll have to meet you at the next one!

Klas, how's the music scene up in Sweden these days? Supposedly "Robert Johnson & the Punchdrunks" are pretty good surfy Swedes too, but I haven't heard much of theirs.


Randy, I think Robert Johnson & the Punchdrunks are quite cool although it's more of a Link Wray style than surf IMO. As for today's swedish surf scene, I'm not that updated since I'm only into original 60's stuff nowadays, but I think Barbwires are still around and there's also a band called Pipelines which are supposed to be good.

Selector Lopaka is my disc jockey moniker. In Jamaica, DJs who spin records are often referred to as Selector. And Lopaka is Robert in Hawaiian.

Welcome Von Franco! For those not around when Tiki Central was on Yahoo, we had a big discussion about the Taboo Tiki Von Franco Bicycle there. Can't wait to see your other Tiki stuff!

Welcome VF and we will see you at the Oasis.
We (wife and 2 kids) met you through Big ED (Freaki Tiki) at the Coast airbrush show.
Nice to have you on board.

Hi everyone,

I started posting and didnít really introduce myself Ė how rude. Iím Can-Tiki-E, from Montreal, Canada Ė home of the Jardin (thatís garden in French) Tiki, who serve up the best tropical drinks and worst Chinese buffet north of the border. Iím a total online forum newbie, but Tiki Central just seemed like the coolest community, so I decided to take the plunge.

Aloha to all.
