Clockwise from top left Tiki Diablo’s Dia de los Marquesos mug, Awesome Bosko stuff, Coconut monkey and Brady Taboo Necklace from Atomikitty, My Tonga punch in a Squid Tiki on the Beach mug as space filler. Amazing Tiki Ice sculptures and some Tiki Ice literally. I'm tired.





Thanks Bora Boris for actually posting pictures of some of THE ART from the art show.

First off, i'd like to thank everyone for the great pictures!

But i especially wanted to thank you Bora Boris for LABELLING yours. It’s REALLY nice to be able to put faces to the names, and for those of us not fortunate enough to live close to the parties and can't meet the people, we appreciate the labels. Well, i certainly do at least.

I’d love to know whose arm those Shag tattoos belonged to, for one!

After one day of searching the ruins,it seems that no new survivors have been found...We did find a digital camera on the premises with these shocking photographs! It seems that GROG was some kind of bizarre sex toy to some members of TC!!! Could it have been a jealous spat that started the Great Tiki Tonga Hut Fire that evening? More news later! In the meantime,please examine these photos for any extra clues....
Senor Calamar seems to be venting out his kinky frustrations on Ernie....even while Ernie is trying to woo some pretty young lady! What sheer cruelty!

Next,Little Lost Tiki shows off his not so little attributes in this shocking scene of human depravity! In public no less! Shocking!

This final sequence is not for the week of heart!
Bamboo Ben sizes up his prey....

Looks for encouragement....

Then pounces upon GROG with Crazy Abandon!!!

Authorities believe that this event may also have been the key moment before GROG carried his burning Chair throughout the building setting it alight!
Now Hi-jinx are Hi-jinx,but let me ask you ....
Was it worth it?

Hey Kinny, your Photoshopping skills are getting really good! GROG had to look hard to find the seams where you pasted yourself and Squid behind GROG in those photos. You needed to adjust the sizes a bit better, they were a smidge off. Also, sometimes you need to adjust the "noise" (look in the FILTER menu) so that two different photos go together better.

That would have been a really good practical joke, but you have to hide your "source" photos to get away with it, and GROG found them.GROG guess you saw Bamboo Ben dry humping GROG. Ddamnit, Ben, GROG thought we agreed to keep our relatoinship behind closed doors---no more public displays of affection!!) So, you tried to follow suit, eh. If only your photoshopping skills had been a little less sloppy, you might have gotten away with it.

Well they just let me out of the burn(er) unit and so now I have a little free time before I get airlifted back up to the icy shores of Santa Cruz. I will hug a Redwood for you Atomickitty when I get there Big THANX to all who pitched into make me feel right at home and brought in the cold weather and rain. Fortunately, I did not suffer to many burns fromthe fire because of my clothes being soaked from standing outside in the rain standing my watch guarding Little Lost Tikis truck from squirting vandals. Although, LLT never did explain why he had all that gas and firewood in the back. SUPER THANKYS to Jeremy and his partner (who's name I did not catch), Grog, Atomic Kitty, all the artist, the Tonga Hut crew and all who made it out despite the cold wet weather. Here are a few samples from my camera. If you want to see the slide show check out Barefoot Bloggin'

Hut Signage

The Ice Tiki Cometh


More IceTiki niceness


Don't tell Grog but I sat here when he was chasin' around all the pretty ladies

The Lovely Ladies of Poly Pop. Tiki Kate, Ookoolady and Utopian Dream (Not sure how I managed to keep
Grog out this shot)


What Little Lost Tiki looks like through the eye of the Ice tiki


Squid, Bora Boris and LLT


Whos been sitting in my Chare?


Bora Bori's sportin the Mele kalikimaka style

DJ Lee spinnin' the hot wax. Could this of been the source of the fire?


Kirby takes the ice tiki's temperature


Tiki Diablo and Stephanie


Cheeky Tiki Girl demonstrates her talents in phrenology

Thanks to all who came through the wet, cold weather to the Tonga Hut for the Art show/ mug launch. It was a smaller turnout this time, but still a nice crowd. Unfortunately, the weather didn't allow the wrestling match to take place in the parking lot behind the Tonga Hut, but GROG think it was probably for the best. Atomikitty would've probably hurt some people pretty badly, and we wouldn't want to put the rest of the artists out-of-commission. And speaking of artists, thanks Holden Bamboo Ben, Atomikitty, Bosko, Diablo, Señor Calamar, Tiki Ice, and Derek for the great art and mugs you brought for the show.And thanks DJ Lee for spinnin some mad tunes. Thank you to Ana and Jeremy and the Tonga Hut bartenders for putting up with this crazy tiki crowd. And, thank you Atomikitty for helping to co-organize this event and putting up with all of our crazy shennanigans. And a big apology to Hanford for this THREAD FROM HELL! GROG hope everybody had a good time, and wish everybody Happy Holidays.
Jeremy didn't sound too pissed, so apparently, the Tonga Hut may even let us do a few shows in 2007. See ya'll then.
