Time to bring a little Aloha Spirit (TM) to the TC boards!

I am on several boards where fans have successfully distributed concert cdrs via something called a "weed" so that is what I am going to do here on Tiki Central -- an experiment in Aloha Spirit, if you will.

Here is how it works:

I have burned 4 copies of the TIKI GARDENS LP, and I will send them FOR FREE to the first 3 Tiki Central members who have a cd burner and 1 who does not, who email me (muggler@earthlink.net) the following information (please read this entire post before emailing me):

1. Your Tiki Central User Name
2. Your real name
3. Your shipping address
4. your email address (in case I need to contact you regarding your cd)
5. Whether you have a cd burner or not and if so then...
6. A promise to continue the Weed on Tiki Central.

Here is how it will work -- The three people who receive a FREE cdr agree to offer the cdr to AT LEAST 3 other people on Tiki Central (2 people with burners who will continue the weed, and 1 person without) within ONE WEEK of receiving the disc, under these same rules (no charge, receiver continues weed, etc.). Those people offer it to 3 others, and on and on, until everyone has a copy.

If you don't have a cd burner, you can still get a cd -- it just may take longer for you to get your mitts on one.

Basically, for the price of 3 (or more, if you REALLY want to spread the Aloha Spirit) blank cdrs and a little postage, YOU can own the Tiki Gadens LP on cd. Pretty simple, eh?

Please note that I am not including the cdr with pictures of Tiki Gardens in this weed, to make the weeding process easier. I will post the front and back cover online for people to download and print if you so desire later this week.

So send me an email if you want in. PLEASE MAKE SURE you include ALL of the requested info, or I will have to skip your request. Also, since many people tend to respond to weeds, please don't get offended if you don't receive a personal reply -- I will post the Tiki Central names of the 4 "winners" in this thread, so the people who missed out will know who won and where the second batch is coming from.

This weed is open to anyone, anywhere. Even MaD-TiKi. The Muggler holds no grudges.

The Aloha Spirit -- can you feel it? (TM)

-Mike

All four slots are now taken, so please hold your emails! The winners are:

Tiki Chris
Trustar
Tiki King
DawnTiki

All four have cd burners, so look for more weeds next week if you missed out.

Count me in! I'd happily burn a few and distribute as well.

how about someone putting it on Kazaa? If I am ever lucky enough to find a copy thats what I am going to do...maybe end all the debate about making moolah on it.

still searching!

My dad actually went to Tiki Gardens as a kid, he said it was awesome, but he thinks its funny its such a big deal now.

Folks who don't have the ability to burn cds can still get in on the weeds, it just may take a bit longer as the ratio is 3 to 1. The original post describes in more detail.

As for Kazaa, I work on a Mac, and being a fierce Mac loyalist I won't (and can't) support any service that does not support Mac.

Regardless, though, mp3's sound like hell, so I felt this was the best way to distribute the LP, which already has all the pops and hiss you'd expect from such an old album.

Tiki-Troll,

Patience, my friend, and you shall get a cd in due time. You will be surprised how quickly these things multiply, and it will sound MUCH better than mp3's.

If you do post mp3s when you get it, though, I would ask that people not weed cds burned from MP3s, so that the weed cd is a direct copy off the master, with no compression.

I know, I'm a geek.

-Mike

MP3's can sound just as good as a wave file, it just depends on the ratio. I usually set a rate of 128kbs and I don't notice a real difference. Some software does not let you choose. I use a free conversion software called CDEX you can get off download.com. It's completely configurable.

But, it's a matter of taste and a matter of how you are listening.

a cd would sound a lot better on a regular stereo. My hubby connected our tv to our computer (he spent alot of time crawling under the house, its nice to have an electrician in the family!) so we are able to watch movies and listen to MP3's right in the livingroom. The sound comes out pretty well, although I think obsessing over sound quality is something that is a Man-only sorta thing. I think the whole weed idea is pretty neat, expecially since the album is so rare. I would like to see more tiki lounge music on kazaa, it would be nice if we could all swap some of our finds. Maybe I'll get the hubby to figure out how to post some of our albums.

Against my better judgment, (because NO one was gonna get to hear this LP), put me down and I'll burn a few copies.

Heck, I guess I should see what the big fuss is all about.

I don't mind staying up late one or two nights for my tiki-brethren.

And Kokomo, I'll be sure to get you one (on top of my 3+1) if you're not already on the list somewhere.

Thanks for the opportunity Mike. I'm sure it is appreciated far more than you'll be told.

-C.

I have a burner and would love a copy. Can somebody send me one and I'll propagate them as needed?

I'm glad you all are doing this! I recieved mine last week - and it's great. Everyone should have a chance to listen to this corny slice of Roadside Americana!

Anyway - I have done several "weeds" with other trading groups - and it works out really well. Everyone gets to hear the rare stuff for very little investment! And no one gets "bullied"! (Sorry MadTiki)

It looks like everyone is in on this weed who wanted one - but if there is anyone who can't wait - drop me a private e-mail & I will be happy to burn copies for anyone who sends a blank CD in a mailer with return postage!
