Master's in American studies. Not sure what comes next . . . hopefully museum work (something pop culture-y) but possibly a PhD in the future. The academic calendar is very nice, I must admit.

Hello All,
Been collecting tiki for only 3 years or so. Just moved from Arlington VA. down to Richmond VA. and in the process of turning my new dingy basement in to a proper lounge. Will post pictures once things start come together. I do have few photos of some Easter Island heads in my old back yard during a snowstorm posted at
www.twistedlittlepuppy.com. Are there any tiki bars down here? I miss the Honolulu.

Aloha from the Great White North. Sweet Daddy Tiki here from Edmonton, Canada (boyhood haunt of emspace. We've been in touch, reminisced about the Beachcomber Restaurant, even swapped stuff). I've been collecting tiki mugs & other polypop bric-a-brac for about 4-5 years -- just started picking up stuff that appealed to me at thrift stores while looking for other things (mostly records and amateur paintings). Considering how far this burg is from everything, Edmonton is not a bad place to find this stuff -- lots of folks vacationed in Hawaii & California in the 60's & if you hit the garage & estate sales in the right neighborhoods there's usually something to be found.

Welcome, Naughtykitty! I've been collecting Tiki for a while but just recently joined the Tiki Room. Things are so hot here in Las Vegas right now but I still manage to find some neat stuff here and there (check Tiki Finds under the Collecting Tiki Section). Is Kansas a Tiki Hotbed, or what? Let us know!!! Welcome and, as always, Happy Hunting!

Aloha and welcome, Sweet Daddy Tiki! Glad to see you made it here among our dysfunctional little crew (who usually says that, PolyPop?). Caught your thread with the link to the terrific pics of the suburban "Polynesian" room plans - they're keepers all right. I knew people with rooms like that back in the glorious 60s. And who knows, maybe Richard Nixon was Canadian, but in denial...

Uhh, feeling dumb for just having posted a seperate thread to introduce myeslf. Should've started here instead. So anyway....Living inside the Beltway near DC and often found dreaming of Tiki's and rum (wife and I honeymooned in Barbados..). Amateur wookworker completly amazed with the Tiki's carved here and I must say a bit inspired to try it myself. Great work everybody!!

Hey All,

Allow me to introduce myself. My name is Zach, early 30's, I'm from the Metro-Detroit area. I used to make music for a living but now I have a "day job" (though I hope to return to it soon). I've been a fan of all things Tiki ever since my dad brought me back a mug from the Polynesian Resort at Disney World where he attended a convention back in 1980-ish. I began mixing exotic cocktails back in college because I was the guy with a blender (frozen Bacardi mixers & all) and that led to a serious interest in proper drink mixing. I hosted my first luau in 1993 and have been collecting for about 10 years. I've been reading this message board since it began and I'm just now typing my first post- Sad huh? I figure if I start posting, it might force me to start carving (something I've wanted to do for years) The carving posts have been very inspirational.
I hope to contribute something of value to this board, as it has helped me quite a bit.
-Z
