If you like I can cry on cue at the original site of Don the Beachcomber's in Hollywood. Seriously I live in Los Angeles, if you need "extra" help send me a PM.

When in Moorea go to Pineapple Beach on the Southside of the island. You will find a giant statue of a person - A Tiki God. Also on Moorea the Tiki Village is kind of cool but dont eat the food it really bad. If your going in the next few weeks at the Pearl Resort they have a couple of local guys carving some Tiki's around the pool. Go and have a few Hinano's with them. If you need anything in Tahiti let me know. The hotels suggested above are great one for the old style Tahiti.

Wow, what a great project!
If you are going to shoot the Hukilau in Sept., try to plan on visiting the Hawaiian Inn in Daytona Beach beforehand(www.hawaiianinn.com), where you can interview veteran Polynesian perfomers Wayne and Teauila Trevassos, as well as shoot some footage of the fabulous Hawaiian Inn hotel, its Witco collection and "Teauila's Hawaii" (www.teauilashawaii.com).
Wayne and his wife left Hawaii and Samoa, reespectively, in their teens to perform in northeastern tiki temples during the 60's and 70's. Later, they began managing the luau show at the Hawaiian Inn and continue to operate a tourist luau there featuring themselves and their daughters as performers. They are both amazing resources of information on the heyday of tiki, and have a somewhat different persepctive as long-time Polynesian show managers and performers.
As a bonus, my wife and I will probably be putting the finishing tiki touches on the condo we just bought there, so you could stop in for a drink.

Hey Folks, we are getting closer to the tiki homelands. After 3 weeks in Australia, we arrived in Auckland, New Zealand, where our tiki documentary will start to heat up. Toady we had a first stroll thru the Pacifics section at the Auckland Museum. Wonderful Maori and Polynesian art. Are there any tikiphiles in New Zealand that can hear me right now? Lets meet for a Maitai. We will start filming at the Te Papa Museum and at the Maori Carving School near Lake Taupo. What I have seen about Maori Carving was alreadz amazing. Our next stops will be Fiji, Rarotonga and Tahiti.

Aloha from Honolulu. Here is an update on the Production of "Armchair-Travelling in the World of Tiki":

The Journey has been already fun, exciting and very informative. We visited New Zealand, Fiji, Cook Islands and Tahiti/Moorea sofar and are now having a great time in Honolulu. Thanks to Gecko for taking us under his wing. We had many Maitais with him, his lovely wahine and the Kailuageoffs (who were her by chance) at the La Mariana and the Royal Hawaiian. Tomorrow we are looking forward to an exciting interview with Kit and Lloyd (Don Tiki). We filmed lots of Material on Carving, Dancing and Art on all the Islands. In Moorea we filmed Leetegs house and had the honor to interview Muck (one of the legendary Bali Hai Boys) and heard great stories on Moorea in the sixties. In Tahiti we bribed our path to the ruins of the old Taharaa Hotel and shot footage of the huge Tiki at the entrance by Oceanic Arts. The shooting schedule for California is in preparation and will be quite challanging. It already looks like this DVD will be an exciting string of rare pearls. We are now starting the call for your support of the "Tiki Telegramm". See special post on this topic.



Tiki Telegramm

Thanks for your interest, we will keep you posted.

Aloha Joe,
We had a great time meeting up with you guys as well as Gecko in Hawaii. Closing the La Mariana and the Mai Tai bar at the Royal Hawaiian was too cool, even though I can scarcely remember either evening.. Hope the DVD project works out in a way that captures the full diversity of tiki approaches and opinions (especially opinions fueled by multiple Polynesian cocktails). See you at da Hukilau.
Best Regards,
KG

Good meeting you out with King Kukulele and TikiDiablo last night at the Purple Orchid.

Glad to see you are a tireless worker hitting every Tiki bar!

Don't know if you've already got to Rarotonga but there's a Tiki carver you should go see. You cant miss him, just take the old inland road anti clockwise from Avarua.

You probably mean Michael Tavioni, he is great but he left the day before we arrived to Hawaii. He went there to carve a big canoe for the festival.. The funny thing is that he left Hawaii the day we arrived there. The great thing is that we had a wonderful time with his brother Henry who is an exallant carver too. Rarotonga was one of our nicest stops.

Hey Jochen and Tanya...
We had a great time meeting you in Tahiti with the Ex-President. I made about 3 hours tapes in the Marquesas, but maybe just a couple of minutes interesting for you. How could I give you the tapes and have it back afterwards??
I can't edit it myself.
See you,

"Secret Agent Virani"
