"I spend a lot of time circling my pool, playing uke and scowling at the water for having the unmitigated audacity to be cold, endless summer my eye."

I love it! I remember you from Purple Orchid. I was happy to see your fluke. You were playing it at the bar and I told you I had one, too. I love your enthusiasm for the world we have created here.

Hi, I'm ZombieTiki from Willow Street, Pennsylvania. I started collecting tiki when a friend of mine introduced me to the artwork of Shag a couple of years ago and now I'm hooked. Nice to be a part of this fine community. I like to read what others have to say mostly, but hopefully I will post more in the future.

Hello everyone, came across this site about a week ago and I love it, especially creating tiki. Carved my first tiki last summer, a moai ,thats where my name comes from. (short for moai tiki) Good to know I am not the only one who hears the call of the drums. I have collected for years and have been working for about a year on building a part time soap business which will launch soon on ebay. (moai shaped of course) tikisoap.com designed by my son will be up and running soon. I work as an organic torpedo residue removal specialist (custodian) in rural NJ. Can't wait for it to warm up so I can get this years tiki garden going. Will be posting pics as I get more tikis done, glad to meet friends to share my work with!

Hey Jim! Glad to have you on board! You're being WAY too modest; folks, this man THREW the after-Kahiki-closing luau! For anyone and everyone who'd been the night before to the big bash! There's mess of us here who appreciated you and your lovely wife Elise's hospitality that day.

And I still love the tiki I got from you at Hukilau, Atlanta. I have yet to get you a copy of my (now ex) band Clouseaux's CD, on which your beautiful carving is the cover art. (Which also means that a large number of the folks on here have seen your work, whether they knew it was yours or not!). Coming to Hukilau 2004? If I don't get it mailed before then, I'll DEFinitely bring it out.

Glad you're here - Welcome!

Hi everyone,
I never thought I'd join this forum as I'm not very knowledgable about tiki (not having been exposed to it as a kid other than relative's trips to New Zealand) and the knowledge of others here is a bit overwhelming.
I've been lurking for about 3 years and check in almost daily to see what's happening. Seems like the same old deal that occurs on the only other board I frequent...a bit of hazing, a bit of arguing and....a great deal of fun!!
No doubt I'll get lashed for asking a stupid question (or at least one that's been asked before...I notice you guys/girls are pretty harsh on that!!) but I hope not too often.
My main interest here is to learn about the mechanics and science of carving (having only just started.....and been inspired by a carving friend) and generally become more aware of the tiki world.
Cheers.
Wayne.....aka PEDDRO!

aloha from the land of cleves,

I'm new to TC but wanted to say hello I first became interested in Tiki when I got together with friends in Vegas and was introduced to the fun of sharing a Scorpion Bowl at the Venus Lounge. Later that month I met back up with my Tiki crazed friend in San Jose and he showed me his collection of Tiki mugs and we drank Mai Tai a plenty. I have been a fan ever since and picked up my first Tiki at a goodwill in San Francisco(a Harvey's Sneaky Tiki)...I have been picking up pieces here and there, only through thrift stores or as gifts. I enjoy the fun a good Tiki drink can bring and love keeping my eyes peeled for new Tikis to bring into my home. I look forward to participating here and sharing my Tiki adventures with you.

late,
p
